Are any of you still hanging about here? In light of all the recent brouhaha in re. LJ and its servers, it occurred to me that importing all the many many years of content on here over to Dreamwidth just in case might be a good idea, because I am well acquainted with the UNBEARABLE TRAGEDY of losing good fic and art to the auspices of time and fickle internet whim. But I'm p sure you need to be a mod (or maintainer?) in order to do that. So! Thoughts, opinions? Are there any mods still hanging about who would be able to do that?

This post is primarily aimed at our newer members, though I strongly urge all members to read this as it contains details of a few changes to the way the haven is run.

First of all, welcome to the Boosh Slash Haven. We have always regarded ourselves as one of the friendliest slash fandoms around and with your help, we will always remain so. This post is intended to outline the posting guidelines in the kingdom of gheydom, and tell you all you need to know about writing fanfiction for the BSH.

Thought it might be fun to have a look back at previous years’ creeptastic round-robin tales of monsters, mayhem, magic and manlove!Read more... )
[identity profile] ideserveyou.livejournal.com
Because if so, I'm happy to sort-of organize it. Previous years' Specials of Doom have been wonderfully surreal experiences with twists, turns, monsters, ghosts and smut aplenty - a tradition well worth continuing IMNSHO - so if you're up for contributing a chapter, sign up here!

If you want to volunteer to start by writing Chapter 1, that would be great, but if you'd rather write a subsequent chapter instead, that's fine too - just say so when you sign up. I'll draw straws or something if we have more than one brave opener, and then compile a list of the final order of authors.

Ideally we'd aim to get all the chapters written and posted during October, culminating with the Grand Finale on October 31 (and yes, volunteers to write that would also be very much appreciated!), but there isn't a hard-and-fast deadline, real life having an unfortunate tendency to get in the way of writing fiction. Just shout if you need to drop out for any reason, and someone else can fill your slot so as to keep the story moving along.

Any takers?

Here's a link to the start of last year's epic (which carried on well into December in the end!) to refresh your memory: http://booshslashhaven.livejournal.com/1311194.html

Still no new chapter for Raise Hell. Sorry, loves. I explain all of that in my new post, which contains character mixes for both Gabe and Eli, though. So this post is a heads up for that.

Give them a listen, if you wanna.

[identity profile] ideserveyou.livejournal.com
I thought it would be simplest if we had a new thread for signups - so if you're interested in taking part in this year's round robin, please sign up here over the next week or so and we'll take it from there.

Just in case anyone can't remember how it works, or is a nervous Special of Doom virgin, what happens is: someone writes the first bit of a Halloween-themed Boosh story, goes on for (say) between 500 and 1000 words, then stops on a cliffhanger and posts whatever they've written. Then the next person on the list takes over and writes the next chapter... and so on until we get to the last person on the list, who has to tie up all the loose ends and finish the story.

If we're very lucky (BIG HINT TO ALL YOU TALENTED ARTISTIC TYPE PEOPLE OUT THERE) we may get contributions of fanart as well - illustrations are always welcome.

You can post your chapter in this community, or put it on your own journal or AO3 and link to it from here, whatever works for you, so long as we can all find it and read it. It doesn't have to be beta'd since it's just a bit of fun really!

Shall I just randomise the order or do people want to post in signup order or is anybody in particular desperately keen to start?
[identity profile] ideserveyou.livejournal.com
... Because last year's was brilliant fun and I for one would love to do it again!

(Mods - any objection to people signing up here? Or does someone else want to organize it?)
[identity profile] saintli.livejournal.com
Mods: Please feel free to delete this if it's not allowed, obviously. I just wanted to make a quick announcement for anyone who has enjoyed my fics in the past, but are not on my friends list.

Announcement One:

A while ago, I decided to delete all my fics from both my personal journal and all the various comms I've posted to over the years. I'm still working on it, but the mass deletion will be happening soon*.

My works can now be found here, for anyone interested.

Announcement Two:

Waaay back in 2009, I started a fic called Eyeliner and Cigarettes (the last chapter I wrote can be found here, with links to previous chapters included). It was one of the more well-received fics I've ever written.

Long story short, I took a break from the fic that lasted five years but as of yesterday, I've started working on it again. I'll post it in full on AO3 when I'm finished with it.



*"Soon" meaning, 'any point at which I stop being really, painfully lazy'.
[identity profile] unbelievable2.livejournal.com
Ok, so this isn't a fic post, but in case people hadn't seen this, I thought I would share:

"If there was another Boosh tour, I'd be on it like a shot. But it's never been a cash cow." Fielding and Barratt both posed for this show: might a reunion be on the cards? "There is still lots of material – scripts that haven't been seen, film treatments, live show ideas. If the time was right, it could come together very quickly. It's not like we're a band who have split up – we're just doing our solo projects. The chemistry is still there."

Hello community, I’m Jo and this is my first post here. I’ve been reading through the fandom for a couple of months now, ever since I discovered The Mighty Boosh, and have made my path through most of what is in any way connected to it and its creators. I’m still catching up. To say that I have been entirely mesmerized and thrilled by these fandoms and the fanfiction and fabulous art I’ve read/seen here so far, would be the understatement of the century. Frankly, I can’t remember being so in love with anything for a long long while. Thank you greatly.

For some time I’ve been drawing amongst others (sort of) illustrations for [livejournal.com profile] concupiscence66's amazing series Let The Good Times Roll, mostly so I don’t have to show too much of my inability to comment, lol. And since there are four pictures now, I thought I may just as well post them here. (And because I was told it would be OK. If it is not, I blame you who told me. You know who you are…) Apologies to everybody who’s already seen the following!

Pairing or Characters: Howard/Vince, Howard & Vince
Rating: G and PG, except for 'Embracing water' that has nonsexual nudity and would be about R.
Disclaimer: I don’t own anybody and anything, not even the ideas for these drawings.

Author’s Notes: As stated above these are more than just inspired by [livejournal.com profile] concupiscence66's wonderful story that I'm sure everyone's familiar with.
And I am so unspeakably grateful for the feedback and support I received from you people who have seen this, although I have proven myself as a horribly inept replier and commentator. I stare at the feedback and read and I'm delighted to squeeing by it.... it's just that I don't know what to say to it. And the same goes for fics... I swear I'll work on that though :)

"... when that's where you left your heart..."  (chapter 18)

Laissez les bons temps rouler!   (chapter 20)

"You don't understand"  (chapter 21)

Embracing water   (chapter 23)

[Sorry, this has turned out longer than I expected. Please tell me if you'd like me to put it all under a cut or something... :///]

Sorry to abuse the Haven but I don't know where else to go!  Does anyone know the names of Julian's parents? I need their names for important slash related reasons!

Beta Update?

[identity profile] cast-adrift.livejournal.com
The beta list seems a little outdated. I'm a first time writer looking for someone to beta some nc-17 Howince slash and I don't want to start sending it willy-nilly to people who haven't been a part of the community for 3 years. Any takers?

Bonus Offering: my 4 year old drawings that some of you may not have seen:

Touch Me based on 'Needs Moar Race' by obeythebunny (the fic has been deleted - I can't find it any more, sorry!). 

Swanboat Times based on 'The Miseducation of Howard Moon' by fecklesslyfine.

[identity profile] laufeyette.livejournal.com
Just wanted to thank everyone who has participated so far in our prompt post, which is open and going strong for those who want to play over the weekend. You guys rock harder than The Black Tubes!

Also, at the request of several community members, anonymous commenting has been temporarily enabled for the prompt post only. Misuse of this (commenting on other entries, leaving abusive comments, your typical disclaimer) will result in it being turned back off. Have fun! C:

I'm writing two 10,000 word stories for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang one for Nathan Barley and another for Garth Marenghi.  Neither is specifically a slash story but the NB story will have slash in it and the Garth story will be unintentionally slashy (mainly Garth being in love with himself/Dagless).  I need someone to look for my mistakes, tell me where I've gone wrong and make me feel guilty for not writing fast enough!  Reply here or pm me if you're interested in being a beta for either.  I'm happy to discuss the stories more in depth with anyone who might be interested.
[identity profile] laufeyette.livejournal.com
Hello all!

As you may have noticed, the BSH is about to reach 2,000 members! If anyone has any ideas for how we might celebrate this milestone, be it by fic exchange, friending meme, free-for-all or anything else, feel free to comment and let us modly-types know.

Also, for newer members (and some older members who may be out of practice), please refer to our Guidelines post for information on posting here, including what belongs in headers, what content requires warnings, how to use lj-cuts, and more. It is never necessary to warn for slash content in this community.

I've noticed a lot of people being lax with things like tagging and headers lately. Please remember that although this is a very laid back community, it's still a largely public place, and we want things to be neat, organized and relevant just like any good community would.

Thank you! :3

(I really hope I'm allowed to post this on here. If not, sorry!)

A friend of mine has challenged me to write an essay of about A Level standard on The Mighty Boosh. I've decided my title is going to be "How Does The Relationship Between Howard and Vince Change During Series 1-3: Discuss" (because this isn't an excuse to convert another innocent to my slashy cause, no sir).

Basically, I'm just posting here to ask other fans for a) Some ideas for what to write about, and b) Good evidence moments to back it up. Now is an excuse to gather all the hilarious, painful or just plain sweet HowardnVince moments together - the more obscure the better - or just your personal Top 10.

Thanks for your help, and hey, if it's good enough I might post it.

Hi there,
I just ran across this short but rather delightful slashy interview with Noel back in 2009. Maybe people have seen it already, but it was new to me.. Not sure if it's ok to post videos here, but it is slash-related!

About half way through Alan admits to being scared of Julian but also having a crush on him... then they discuss the boys' relationship, the rows, the sexual tension and later Noel's sexuality. Choice quotes include: "I will get off with a man if I'm drunk... I don't mind a feel-up"

Basically Alan Carr is clearly a dirty dirty slasher ;)

Dear all,

I hadn't checked for a while, but have just looked at the Queertet archive and I don't seem to be able to reach the fanfic. We had this problem some months ago as well, but it righted itself. Anyone else got the same difficulty?

Love to all

[identity profile] isidora-vande.livejournal.com
I hope this is allowed on here, but I'm a shit writer so I thought maybe someone else would be able o do something with these!!  Please please please I will love you foever and then for a year after forever as well! ;P

1)  Noel Fielding/Phill Jupitus... hot, dirty, Buzzcocks sexing.  Someone, please please make this happen, I don't know why no one seems to wrie this but COME ON... They're adorable in that Buzzcocks QT thing they do, clearly otp material!

2) Also, Noel Fielding/Lee Mack... they clearly get on great, used to live together (fic can be present day or when they were younger, though I would WAYYY prefer present day if possible), and Lee has a running joke abou Noel being a tranny (so the fic doesn't *have* to, but can totally include genderfuck/crossdressing/etc if your little heart desires).

You would make my day and week and year and... oh fuck you would absolutely MAKE MY LIFE by writing these!  I'd write it myself but I promise you, I'm absolute shit at slash-fics, and I would love it if these were excruciatingly DIRTY and descriptive.  But I will pay a million dollars* and bake you a cake, so I hink that's a fair deal :P  lol

*payments over the next 24500 years, terms and conditions apply (HAHA jk)
