Is there anyone out there interested in running the percy_ficathon?

emiime is looking for people because I inquired about it.

I would rather not take it on myself--I've never run a fest before. But I would hate to see it languish, as I love this fest.

Though most of you hate poor Percy. Alas, I have not been able to get you all to see the fabulousness of him. But if you know someone who might be interested, please promote this back to emiime's journal so we can find someone to bring this fest back.

Though I will flounder through it if I have no choice. I don't want this abandoned.

I think even before I discovered my love for Percy as a character (because I hated him right after I finished the books-- just hated him), I recognized that I wanted the challenge of writing the character.

And I'm like you, I love that fest, but I'd rather not take it on myself as my hand's currently stirring far too many pots.

Nod. I didn't think too much of him until this one fic I read, oh, years and years ago, which turned his character completely on its head for me. Just a few key lines and character insights had me going OMG I've been so misguided and I instantly fell for him.

Main reason I don't want to take it on is that I've never done it before and I'd probably screw it up. I don't run many things (only recently started trying to take on a running role in something), so I would probably have the time... but yeah. I'd probably mess up.

I do hope somebody takes it up. But I won't let it be abandoned :(

I wouldn't say I hate him...I do think he's portrayed as rather unidimensional by JKR, but I think that's out of necessity because really, how many characters can she flesh out so fully with a cast of dozens?

No more fan fic action for me...I can't even manage ofic right now with all the fucking chaos in my life.

Very true--he's very undimensional, and rather abused in some ways. (Imagine being the quiet, orderly child in the Weasley house.)

True though that she couldn't flesh out everyone. I guess I just identify with him. It's fun to explore the possibilities.

Aww. Can I help somehow? *hugs* You'll get everything together soon, hun. I just know it's going to turn out all right.
