Fandom: As The World Turns
Pairing: Luke Snyder/Reid Oliver (LuRe)
Spoilers: For the entire storyline.
Word Count: 4000+
Author's Notes: Pic/video heavy. Gifs courtesy of starryeyedmagic. I posted the original version a year ago, but I decided to use Free Month to post an updated version.( Read more... )
But why bother when the movies does it for you? We gleefully made plans to see this movie after seeing the trailers which seemed promisingly X/Magneto slashy. Now usually that's a prelude to disappointment (I'm looking at you, Sherlock Holmes).
In this case, the slash was underhyped and overdelivered. Our ribs are sore from elbowing each other, and there was real danger of exploding from repressed squeals of joy.
Not only do we get tender bonding moments and meaningful eye contact, we get a plethora of phallic symbols throughout the movie.
Thank you Hollywood. Now if you could just make sure the next Star Trek movie includes some serious CP/ZQ fan service, my faith in humanity will be utterly restored.
Fandom: The Big Bang Theory
Disclaimers: I do not own any of this except the order that the words are typed out.
Notes: As long as you're up to date on the show, there'll be no spoilers.
( Shamy Manifesto )
Fandom: Spartacus: Blood and Sand
Spoilers: Vague spoilers for the whole series.
Disclaimer: This is only a fanwork.
Notes: I made this awhile ago for femslash_land but free month seemed like a perfect time to post it here especially since I found out there were no Spartacus pairing manifestos at all!

Pairing: Thassarian/Koltira Deathweaver
Spoilers: Almost the entire Death Knight manga, as well as the entire Death Knight starting zone and the entire Battle for Andorhal quest chain.
Notes: I don't have an Alliance-side character of a high enough level to do Thassarian's quests in Borean Tundra. From what I've read, he's more preoccupied with the Scourge than Koltira and the Horde, and I decided to leave them out for that reason. If I'm incorrect, please tell me. The title means "help me forget" in Thalassian. If I failed at lore, please don't hesitate to correct me.
Disclaimer: The Warcraft universe is the property of Blizzard entertainment.

Spoilers: The whole movie
Disclaimer: I do not own Inception nor claim to know the minds of the writers; I simply read between the lines, and often right out in the open, to make my own determinations, no sort of copyright infringement intended.
Fan Disclaimer: The fanart used within is not my own. I have put credit for those I remembered or could find, some are just the source I found the image on and not necessarily the original maker. If any of the fanart is yours feel free to request credit and I'll be happy to put it up.
Notes: I had wanted to write this awhile ago even though for most within the fandom it’s a well establish pairing that needs no help. Still, I thought it would be nice to lay everything out! (Feel free to comment with anything you think is missing).

Title: Lost and Found
Fandom: Battle Spirits: Shounen Toppa Bashin
Pairing: Kyouji "Card Sensei" Kawatou x Masako Inogashira/Number Eight
Spoilers: For a lot of major events. I tried to limit them, but some were hard to avoid.
Disclaimer: I own nothing. The Battle Spirits anime belongs to Sunrise.
Notes: I was working on this for a while, but wasn't sure what to do about posting it, being that it's from a non-existent fandom. Isn't Free Month the perfect excuse? Also, this essay only covers the anime version, as in the manga, both characters are extremely minor.
( Gate Open... Release! )
Series: Metro 2033
Disclaimer: Metro 2033 belongs to Dmitry Glukhovsky.
Spoilers: Book + Game, except for the endings
Obscure pairing for a very popular book… In Russia, that is.
Turned into a game, which is *way* more famous around the world (although, yes, it's no way well known).
( Artyom suddenly regretted that he had succumbed to Hunter's strong charms and hypnotizing gaze… )
Fandom: Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s
Pairing: Yusei Fudo/Kiryu Kyosuke, also known as Inverse/Treasonshipping in certain circles.
Spoilers: Fortune Cup (Episodes: 1-26), Dark Signer Arc (Episodes 27-64) and Crashtown Arc (Episodes 86-92)
Word Count: 4,300ish
Warning: I ramble a lot
Author's Notes: I will be using the original Japanese anime version for my manifesto, as the dubbed version is considered to be inferior to it and the manga is a complete AU of the animated series and the two are reduced to being strangers of each other. Also I originally reserved the pairing under my old journal (digitalstarry) a couple of months ago but failed to meet the deadline because of school so I wonder if this counts as a free month submission or not.
Credits: northwind_gale and fortuneladyicey for assisting me with writing this. zippyz and auditive for providing some of the screencaps and video. universeheart and lokcha for providing some doujinshi scans and all the creators of the fanwork <3.
Disclaimer: Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's belongs to Kazuki Takahashi, Nihon Ad Systems (NAS), TV Tokyo, Konami, and Shuiesha.

Pairing: Bud Flood (aka The Liquidator)/Gosalyn Mallard

Title: Move Along – a Yuffentine Manifesto
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Spoilers: If you haven’t played the games, then FFVII and Dirge of Cerberus. If you haven’t seen the movie, Advent Children spoilers too

Title- Walk No More In The Shadows, But Awake!
Author- Jackie (blackat_t7t )
Fandom- Lord of the Rings (books only, since I've only seen bits of the movies)
Spoilers- entire book series
Disclaimer- the Lord of the Rings trology was written by J. R. R. Tolkien, and is propety of the Tolkien Estate.
Notes- I wrote this because it's a free month and I'd like to see the pairing get some love. If anyone else wants to do a more in-depth one, they're welcome to!
We do apologise for the lack of attention this comm has recently received, and to show our appreciation of everyone who's still hanging around waiting for us to do something, we're going to let you do something. :D
Short on time, but still want to sing the praises of your favorite OTP/OT3/OT4? Step right up! Be creative! There are absolutely no rules, other than respecting each other, behaving in an adult manner, and using an lj-cut.
You can write as much or as little as you want to, add screencaps or not, quote scenes that make you squee. It really is up to you. A post here is basically saying "This is why I love x/y and why you should too." How about the top twenty reasons why 'blank' deserves better, but you still can't help shipping them together? Maybe there's not much - or any! - actual canon for your crazy crossover pairing, but you want to tell everyone why Faith Lehane(Buffy)/Dean Winchester(Supernatural) is the best pairing ever? This is the time and the place to do it.
"Free Month" runs for the rest of the month of May and all of June! Someone should be around to approve posts on a daily basis, to prevent any possible flist logjams. *g*
Anyone who has already commented on the sign-up list is free to post their manifesto as and when they are ready, up to the end of June. If anyone requires longer than that, please let me know at the signup post, and you will be assigned a suitable date.
Let the festivities commence! :D
