Hey folks!

For those of you who don't quite realize due to the icon, I'm the original creator of this community. (Most people here will call me 'Ms. Mod' or 'Kawa'.) I'm here to answer some questions that have been asked lately and offer clarifications about my own vision for this community.

I created this community almost two years ago (erhmahgehrd!) as an alternative to the subreddit, a place where I could express thoughts I didn't want to express over there in a format I was personally comfortable with. At the time, I was working part time in a data entry job that allowed me to listen to Youtube at work, so I had lots of time to listen to videos and generally interact with Mindcrack.

And yes, some of those thoughts were fanfiction; some were shippy, and some of those thoughts were both shippy and smutty (NSFW link for the second one). I have a background of even more obviously real person fandom under a different username, so I was personally comfortable with it. A lot of people at Reddit weren't comfortable with the idea, even within the clearly fantastical setting of video games, so I didn't want those thoughts expressed there.

But some of those thoughts weren't fanfic at all, and a lot was just me watching stuff and having a place to talk about it.

We've grown in a big way, partially because the Mindcrackers themselves have become more and more overt about knowing who we are which makes us easier to find. We've been mentioned in every Zeldathon in the past two years, plus more podcasts and tweets than I can count. I know not everyone likes the attention, but it's clear that at least some Mindcrackers (looking at you, MC and Vechs!) check on us regularly and like what we do! And I, for one, really appreciate that.

I've also had some major changes in my life - I've had two job changes (with major moves) in that interval, one huge family health crisis, and various other events that I'm not willing to share, plus other fandoms that mean a lot to me have started having major activity again. I'm now finally seeing the benefits of my advanced degree, working full time at a job that challenges and excites me. This does mean that I don't have the time for absorbing Mindcrack canon like I used to, sadly, so I feel really behind when trying to catch up. Luckily, I have a fantastic mod team who I trust - thank you so much to [personal profile] red_wolf and [personal profile] scaredykitty for being wonderful.

So I'd like to reiterate: shippy or not, fanfic or not, all these things are part of this community. This is exactly why I changed the byline to an alternate Mindcrack community: all this was meant to be was an alternative to the subreddit, and it's been doing that in style. Yes, we are ship-friendly, fanfic-friendly, probably the first and most active place to do so for this fandom: but things that don't fit that mold always have been and always will be part of what we are.

I'd also like to reiterate that this is a fan-made community, and what you make of it is your own. I don't want to censor people or make them feel unwelcome in any way, shape, or form, and I want to encourage people to be part of it in any way they feel fit. Want to revive Group Rewatch? Want to make Work in Progress Wednesdays or Teaser Thursdays alongside the already fan-made Sunday chat posts? YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO DO THIS, AND YOU SHOULD NOT FEEL LIKE YOU CAN'T.

It is not the mod team who made the "external Salad things" happen: Skype chats, Minecraft servers, other communities here or on Tumblr or wherever: It is perfectly reasonable to have more places than just this Dreamwidth be alternatives to Youtube comments and the subreddit. We are not competing with each other, just making there be a variety of places to show our love and support of Mindcrack.

Just continue to be excellent to each other, follow the rules, and have fun. I'm proud of this community, of all we've made together, and I hope for many more years of fun and fandom from you all.

Ms. Mod

Hi! I figured I would give a proper hello to the community, since I haven't gotten around to doing so. You can call me catbug or whatever you'd like, I'm not picky :) I discovered Mindcrack Love around a month ago and had been lurking since then, but I never really planned on making an account... until I wrote a fic of my own and couldn't stand it just sitting in my desk drawer :P I usually read and enjoy the new entries every day, however I don't comment much. Well... at all really. No matter what website I'm on I guess I'm just not the commenting type, probably because of my anti-socialness (that's a word, right?)

I probably won't post things that often due to school/work, but I'll try to comment some more. I have a lot of things written, but I feel that most of it isn't quite internet worthy yet, still some polishing to do. I really love fanart, but my illustrations aren't really anything special. I mostly just like seeing other peoples' art and their creativity in the works! I guess I'm more of a reader/viewer than a writer/speaker...

Anyways, happy summer everyone and I hope to read more of everyone's fanfictions :D

Just a warning this fic does have inneudos nothing to bad, so if that is not your cup of tea then skip over this one.
One last thing Words in italics are in Latin and the translation can be found below, and Words in bold are said with sarcasm.

Aurey ran as fast as she could through the night, knowing there was not much time left.

Hello Everyone!

Hi peeps, my name is yummydonut1202, and if you like, you can call me yum, yummy, yumyum, donut, or anything of that sort, or you can call me Julia.

I've been lurking around here for quite a long time, heck, I can't even remember when I first started! (Its kinda creepy now that I think about it...)

I'll write as often as I can (though I don't exactly think I'm very good at it, and it takes a while.) and might try my hand at drawing! My OTP's are Nebtho (especially fluff!!!) and Veylian, and some others that I ship include, but aren't limited to, Setho, Parkas, Sechs, BlameTheRatt and on. I will pretty much read everything though.

Well, I guess that's about it for me, but if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! I'm excited to be a part of this community!

(Oh and just a side note, I usually visit this site on my phone, so expect lots of typos because no matter how hard I try to correct them some always sneak in.)

Teammates? [SoS]

A Tribute to Ratt (gottaloverattatta) and Freeze (Freezer7)'s Fic-Writing team., aka the new Adorabolical Team, but this time, they are really an active member of the salad, except no lets plays (yet).

So I promised Demonsense no evilness so I came up with this on the fly. But don't worry, evil is coming. *Laughs maniacally* Now please enjoy your nightly story. My activity may also change for the next 14 days. The story will be inspired by what's happening for those 2 weeks.

So, um... sorry 'bout the SE spamness. This story has grown a ton. People signing up left and right, comments on the stories etc. And now, I have two other writers doing back stories for the characters. So, yay.

The point of this post is for my readers to have links to the back story, and for r7's and clash's to have links to each other and me, making this a more successful co-lab.

When each of us post part of Sem Equites, we'll link back here. I'll try to make sure I log in enough to edit in the new links, and hopefully if you keep this page bookmarked, you'll be able to find any chapter you want in seconds.

Teh sign up page: http://mindcracklove.dreamwidth.org/774580.html

First cut is for main story, second is back story.

Hello guys! Not Guude here! If you're involved in the Sem Equites story, as a character or just want to throw out ideas or something, read this! If not, nothing to see here. Just gathering ideas.

Edit: We're at over 300 comments now! Ermahgerd! New Record!

Edit #2: Over 400 now! Do we get funding to make the cookie hot pocket machine a real thing now?
