Welcome to sga_saturday, where your co-mods, lilyfarfalla and esteefee plan to prompt you weekly with a word to stir your sga imaginings. You will have one week to post before the word changes.

Rules for posting: please post your stories, art, drabbles, vids, etc. here, although you may feel free to cross post to ao3. Tag your posts, and ask us for tags in an admin post if you require one. We accept all pairings, slash, het and gen. Please no character bashing or RPF. Warnings if you please out of consideration for our readers.

Please let us know if we've forgotten anything; this is our very first community!

Q&A section:
ETA1: fresh works only, please, nothing previously posted.
ETA2: once the prompt week has passed, feel free to cross-post your work at will.
ETA3: the prompt will change Saturdays at noon Pacific time (presently UTC-7). But for the first week's prompt we will extend the coffee story time-limit until midnight since we just made that up!
ETA4: Comprehensive list of rules can be found in our profile!

I love the idea for this community. Specially since sga_flashfic seems to have disappeared from Livejournal.

The biggest suggestion I can make for you guys for this community is to find a different layout. As simple as this one is to maintain, it isn't very eye catching (and to not use the "cloud" option with the tags, makes it more difficult to sort through them).

Thank you for starting this up though!

will do! we set up the comm on my iPad in the coffee shop so the configuration options were a little time-consuming... :) I'll work on that right now! and make us a pretty banner.
May. 29th, 2011 05:46 am (UTC)
Yay! Good advice too. esteefee, let me know if you want help/input on this. I'm happy to let you run wild!
May. 29th, 2011 06:04 am (UTC)
if you'd prefer to do the banner (or maybe want to phone talk through selections tomorrow) I would love it! I have OTW volunteer work tomorrow at 11am but should be free from noon onward.
May. 29th, 2011 04:53 am (UTC)
Well, I'm game...I only write gen so I might the lone ranger on here, but you tempted me with coffee...I am as addicted as McKay.

Off to write something about coffee!
May. 29th, 2011 05:38 am (UTC)
I love your stuff! <3 <3 <3

I'm working on a ridiculously long Sheppard-as-cyborg gen piece right now. I need your mojo. :)
May. 29th, 2011 06:52 am (UTC)
Thanks...that's sweet of you to say.

Sheppard as cyborg...whoa...sounds very interesting...whatever mojo you need, you got...can't wait to read it!

Um, sorry to jump in and for being off topic but:

long Sheppard-as-cyborg gen piece

hee. well, I talked it out at lilyfarfalla today and that helped get me excited about it again, so you might well see it. it's already at 25K, which is just ridiculous. so I might as well finish the damned thing. :)
May. 29th, 2011 07:20 am (UTC)

I think I died and woke up in heaven! Please, please, please finish it! *offers cookies in the size of the moon*
May. 29th, 2011 08:13 am (UTC)
eep! you are very kind. I have a long weekend so I promise I will crack it open and get started, k? but first lily and I have to make the comm all pretty tomorrow. :)
May. 29th, 2011 08:29 am (UTC)
:) Awesome and Thank you! :)
Sep. 6th, 2011 09:24 pm (UTC)
btw, I want my MOON COOKIE. :)))))
May. 29th, 2011 05:39 am (UTC)
Yay, welcome to the party! And gen stories are TOTALLY welcome. (Two out of the three up are as gen as can be.)
May. 29th, 2011 06:05 am (UTC)
I'll go post in the sheppard_hc comm, too, in case anyone missed the newsletter announcement.
May. 29th, 2011 06:54 am (UTC)
Thank you...excited about a new comm. This is already been fun! Going to be a great party!!!
May. 29th, 2011 07:13 am (UTC)
May. 29th, 2011 06:43 am (UTC)
I'm in love with your userpic!! It's gorgeous.
May. 29th, 2011 06:57 am (UTC)
Ah...rocketman...yeah, I like that shot of him...I am a userpic fanatic...I am ashamed to say how many I have to play with over 220. Please feel free to snag that one or any of them, if you want.
May. 29th, 2011 06:41 am (UTC)
We can always use a new SGA com!! Anything that can inspire more fic and art - I'm all for!!

♥ thank you! \o/
May. 29th, 2011 09:42 am (UTC)
Yay! Thanks for starting this, more SGA=good.
May. 29th, 2011 04:02 pm (UTC)
:))) always!
May. 29th, 2011 10:09 am (UTC)
Oh this looks like fun. I will have to give it a go...
And thank you for starting this up
May. 29th, 2011 04:02 pm (UTC)
thank you for the encouragement!
May. 29th, 2011 11:40 am (UTC)
Yay, this could be fun! :-)

please post your stories, art, drabbles, vids, etc. here, although you may feel free to cross post to ao3.
Crossposting only to the AO3? Why?
May. 29th, 2011 04:00 pm (UTC)
we accept the ao3 as an permanent, non-denominational archiving utility (meaning that stuff that gets posted there will exist forever and hopefully won't draw community discussion away.) if folks post their contributions to their own livejournals instead of to the community, it will have the opposite affect...we're hoping to draw folks together to the space, but we recognize the need for archiving. we don't have ultimate belief in LJ for permanence.

oh, but you've reminded me: I should add a note that you are free to cross-post anywhere after the next challenge is up (a week later.) it's only for the initial posting that the rule stands.

That makes sense :)
May. 29th, 2011 12:03 pm (UTC)
This sounds great! :)

May. 30th, 2011 01:54 am (UTC)
I very much love the new layout for the comm! Awesome work!
May. 30th, 2011 04:01 am (UTC)
thank you! and thanks for the idea. did you see I've linked as many sga comms as I can find along the left? if you know of any others, let me know.

the banner is just a quickie. I'm hoping to get crysothemis to make us one. :)))
May. 30th, 2011 04:10 am (UTC)
Not a problem! It was the first thing I did when I took over sgu_challenge.

And I did see the links! That is an awesome idea. I know when I first got into SGA on livejournal finding communities was a little daunting and sga_flashfic was actually the first one I found. I'll cull through my comm lists and bookmarks and come back with a few more sometime tomorrow... right now I need to be getting to sleep... have to be up in five hours for work >

I just heard about this com so I missed the 'coffee' prompt. Count me in, it sounds like fun. I'm currently in a 'drabble' only weekly prompt com in another fandom, so it will be nice to have a few more words to work with.
Jun. 3rd, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
\o/ welcome.

and you're not too late, if you feel like writing a coffee-let. :) we'll be changing the prompt tomorrow, of course.
Jun. 4th, 2011 07:15 am (UTC)
For whatever reason, I thought we had until Saturday midnight, but I can't find a specific timeline, so clearly I made that up. To clarify - the prompt will change tomorrow (today. Saturday.), but do I still have all of Saturday to submit something, or does it need to be in by Friday night?
Jun. 4th, 2011 08:26 am (UTC)
we just this evening decided on the time the prompt will change...since we had our original comm idea around noon (pacific, UTC-7) we will be changing the prompt at noon tomorrow. but since we only just decided that, we'll be happy to accept your coffee story until midnight tomorrow this once. :) sorry about that. we'll add this new info to the rules.

collections tag (or whatever it's called)
I'm working on getting some of my fic posted to my AO3 account, and there's the 'collections' feature. I thought it might be a cool idea if SGA Saturday had a collection. Any thoughts?
Jul. 10th, 2011 11:43 am (UTC)
Re: collections tag (or whatever it's called)
great idea! I've created collections for all the prompts. Just type the prompt word into the collection box on the edit page for your story. They're all open for now to give folks the chance to get them all in.

I'll make an announcement tomorrow when my eyeballs aren't all bleary. :)
