Changing Channels gif
Pondering the need for a spn_gifs comm? You know, somewhere to link gif posts, or rec tumblr gifs...Or is enough that there is tumblr all ready...?

Oooh ooh while I'm here. If you a fan of The Professionals (you know that CI5 show that was on forever ago featuring the dynamic due of Bodie and Doyle) AND a Supernatural fan you HAVE to read callistosh65's crossover fic Beam Me Up. It's an absolutely delightful meshing of two completely different worlds. I was curious how on earth she would plausibly get Sam and Dean into the 80's spy world - but wow! she did - and did so brilliantly. Go read!!

Oh it's arrived! I've been waiting for callisto's fic for ages and I missed it being posted! Thanks for the heads up! :D

A gif comm would be good - or some sort of gif hosting place where we can find stuff - I know I have a load saved on photo bucket.

It's arrived and it's fantastic! Dean and Bodie locking horns has gotta be one of the best things ever!

I was looking forward to this since she first told me she was writing it - I always loved The Professionals so combining it with SPN? marvellous!

I hope you like it!

Already read and commented over on AO3, petal. :D

I'd like a gif comm! I found it hard to keep up with everything that gets posted on tumblr, so it would be nice to have them collected in one place more on LJ :)
10th-Aug-2013 10:22 am (UTC)
Oh good. I think it could be a good way to keep track of gifs and some where for people who like to make gifs to post them (or add links).

10th-Aug-2013 08:43 am (UTC)
Ooooh. A gif comm sounds very cool! I've got quite a few saved (mostly from Tumblr :P) but I know my collection is small compared to most.
10th-Aug-2013 10:23 am (UTC)
You like? That's a good thumbs up. If I know that there would be support for it I might create it. :) Thanks hun

hi, there is a comm called spn_animated at livejournal. But it seems to be dead. I used to post my animations over there, but at one point it seemd as if I was the only one still posting. So I stopped going there.

I think setting up another gif comm wouldn`t hurt.

Would it be for tumblr gifs/reccs only? Or open for everyone to post what they have done also? Because I`m still looking for a good place to post/link my anis, beside tumblr *whistles*
10th-Aug-2013 10:26 am (UTC)
I see it as a place that people could post and link anything gif related. So if you've made some gifs and you want to share them you could either post them there or add a link (like at spn_picspam). I think it could also house animated icons, banners etc. Maybe even tumblr gif recs... Maybe even gif tutorials....;)
10th-Aug-2013 11:17 am (UTC)
well, going by what you`ve just described, the comm could be my new happy place :D

as you might know, the little moving graphics are an addiction of mine, I also have done a tutorial for making gifs, and links for a lot of great gif tutorials at tumblr.

so, yeah, if you create a comm like this, I`d join right away :D

and yes to including everything gif related. Lately it`s not easy to find new animated icons, it seems by now most people who do gifs focus on tumblr graphics only.

There are a lot of gifs at tumblr, and I think that`s one of the main problems I`m having with tumblr. It`s just too much.
To have a place where someone could post own stuff, and links to favorite gifs, tutorials aso, this would make it easier to browse, and to find something new.
10th-Aug-2013 11:30 am (UTC)
I was thinking of a gif comm too, I've made so many lately it would be a good place to post them, and to find gifs that others have made :)
10th-Aug-2013 11:34 am (UTC)
I did think of you actually! I've been seeing all your lovely gifs. :)

Um...I'd like a partner in crime (I'm not great with comm layouts and stuff) so if you were interested let me know. I think there's probably enough interest to give it a go...;)

11th-Aug-2013 10:31 pm (UTC)
I'm not great at layouts myself but am willing to look around and see what I can pick up, and yes, I'd be interested :)
12th-Aug-2013 01:18 pm (UTC)
Cool! I just tried to create it but the name has been taken. I checked it out and it has never been used. I'm checking if the owner will delete it so we can use the name. If not we'll have to come up with something else. I'll let you know how it goes. :))
12th-Aug-2013 03:27 pm (UTC)
Okey Dokey! I'm sure if need be we can come up with something :)
12th-Aug-2013 10:58 pm (UTC)
I heard back from the owner and she's deleted the comm. She was very lovely about it. I'll create it later and have a play and maybe we can chat about a few things. :))
10th-Aug-2013 01:10 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank you for the rec, hon. You're a total sweetheart! And I don't have a clue about how to make gifs, but I do enjoy them. And I'd love to see an active LJ comm for them, when blurb can be added, as well as crossposting and collecting up specific spn ones from tumblr.
10th-Aug-2013 11:50 pm (UTC)
Hey! My pleasure hun. It's rekindled my love for the show.

And yeah - I'm seriously contemplating creating a comm. There seems to be a bit of interest.

I tried to find a way to watch The Professionals at one point and got bewildered, but I might give the fic a try, even though the other canon is going to be a mystery to me.
10th-Aug-2013 11:54 pm (UTC)
Ha! It would be totally bewildering to someone watching it now. It's particularly slow and..er...cheesy. Though a lot of 80s TV seems cheesy looking back.

Here's a vid I found that can give you a little snap shot of their relationship. Essentially they are partners and best friends who fwork or CI5. Watching this helps you see the slash potential...;) I think the story stands alone without knowing the Pros world. The Sam and Dean stuff is great. :)

(a) A gif comm would be AWESOME!

(b) Dean and Bodie locking horns

O_o Wat?

*RUNS to fic*
*perhaps knocks over a few old ladies and/or nuns along the way*

*perhaps knocks over a few old ladies and/or nuns along the way*

Ha! Yes! :DDDD

I would love a gif comm, because it would be interesting to see what *everyone* in fandom is doing, not just the stuff I ship.
12th-Aug-2013 10:58 pm (UTC)
Oooh, good point. I will be creating one it looks like. Watch this space! :)
