Hello all! I come bearing The News. :P

Obviously first, the big one: Infinity War came out this April. Currently the comm as a whole is a spoiler free zone but if you want to discuss/squee/cry, please go to our dedicated post.

If you'd like to host or suggest ideas for an All The Things Friday we'd love to hear from you, head this way.

In the wider world: We've got another trailer for Ant Man and the Wasp which looks exactly as lighthearted and ridiculous as I was hoping for. AND two separate trailers for Deadpool 2 which looks EXCELLENT in my opinion, as well as Celine Dion doing the main music with a video which is honestly everything I hoped for. The Black Widow film is definitely maybe happening, and there's also something to do with a Venom film? But I wasn't really paying attention. In other news though, apparently five of the original six Avengers (so, minus Ruffalo) have got matching tattoos, which is just kinda really cute.

In comics, we got the conclusion to the Tales of Suspense Winter Soldier, Hawkeye and Black Widow story which was... well, I loved the banter, less the actual plot. And my god the art was ugly, but hey, that's just my opinion. Kelly Thompson's Hawkeye also concluded (boo!), though it was nominated for an Eisner (yay!) and the last issue implied Kate would be returning in August (double yay!). Also, Old Man Hawkeye continues to be a thing.

Have I missed anything? Let me know! (Though also be aware that I am one of a handful of people who hasn't seen IW yet. My brain is being so nice to me right now guys. :/ )

Hi All, we have a Masterlist here for Valentine's Mini Promptathon 2018, if you want to check for any creations you might have missed. I do love a good promptathon :)

If you'd like to host or suggest ideas for an All The Things Friday we'd love to hear from you, head this way.

Also has been busy getting the comm's tumblr account going again - check it out, so much Clint and Natasha goodness that even I'm starting to spend some time on tumblr again! Submissions, reblogs, and cross-posting of fanworks all welcome.

In the wider world, February was the month of Black Panther (!!!) and it was announced that we're all getting Infinity War on April 27th (I am not prepared).

Any more news? Fic recs and things relevant to our interests? Let us know in the comments!

YESSSSS HELLO FEBRUARY, THE MONTH OF BLACK PANTHER.

Ahem.

Yes, so! February is upon us! It is soon Black Panther time! And also, soon time for our Valentines Mini Promptathon 2018! Are you excited? Are you ready and raring to go? The comm's been a little quiet recently, but perhaps you've been busy writing for Chocolate Box ([community profile] chocolateboxcomm), whose reveals are on the 14th? (I know that's what I've been doing anyhoo). Related to this, I'm thinking of trying to revive the B_C tumblr account, so if anyone has any suggestions relating to that, I'd be happy to hear them.

All The Things Friday: If you'd like to sign up to host ATTF, make suggestions, or just see what's coming next then this is the post for you.

And from around the internet: The Superbowl gave is another teaser for Infinity War, though still no Clint. :( We've also got trailers for Jessica Jones season 2 and the first look at Brie Larson as Captain Marvel! We also got the 10 Years of the MCU photoshoot and character poster, which is quite something. Ten years!  Who'da thunk it. In the comics world, the fun and fantastic Hawkeye comic by Kelly Thompson has, unfortunately, been cancelled, but on the other hand, we have also been given some A+ Clint and Kate interactions, so I guess it even's out? (Spoiler: it does not even out). No news if Hawkeye (either of them) or Black Widow will get their own solo run any time soon, but there is the Old Man Hawkeye limited series, which is... a thing, I guess.

Any challenge/events happening online? Got recs? Anything else relevant to our interests? Let us know in the comments!

omg I'm so excited for Black Panther guys

Just a heads up if you're only following along on liverjournal - sign ups are open for Secret Santa 2017 here until 9am GMT Saturday 21st October.

And a reminder that you don't need a Dreamwidth account to take part - comment anonymously and include your LJ handle in your comment, or comment using OpenID signing in with your LJ account.

It's that time of year again!

It might seem like only five minutes ago we were enjoying the summer promptathon - and if you haven't already seen it we have a masterlist of the wonderfulness here - but keep your eyes open for Secret Santa 2017 sign ups coming your way soon!

In the meantime, All The Things Friday is back in business. We already have on potential sign up that I'm looking forward to and then there's Halloween... We have a handy sign up post here where you can sign up (funnily enough), make suggestions, and see what's coming next. If there's anything you'd like to see on the comm, we'd love to hear from you.

And, as ever, we love new community banners if anyone's feeling creative :)

PROMPTATHON 2017: This year's summer Promptathon extravaganza is a go! Prompting is open RIGHT NOW. Fills start Saturday August 5th and end Saturday August 19th.

IMAGE LINKS: You may have noticed that most of the comm's images have been replaced with a rather ugly Photobucket broken link image. The main comm layout has now been fixed. The issue is that Photobucket, which is where we host our images, have changed their rules so that to have third party hosting - in other words to save images there and then embed links to them elsewhere - means you now have to have a paid account with them, costing $400 a year. Which for obviously reasons we will not being doing.

We're sorry for the mess. All images are still viewable and downloadable on our Photobucket site if there's any that you would like - we're be_compromised on there too. If anyone has any recommendations for other image hosting sites we're all ears.

COMMUNITY BANNER: Our current colourful banner is from slytheringurrl! If you'd like to make a shiny new banner for our comm then please send them in to be_compromised@hotmail.com
A few rulesCollapse )

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: is on pause during Promptathon. It's been a bit quiet lately at the weekends so after Promptathon is over hopefully we'll have some lovely volunteers and suggestions for ATTF parties - get your thinking caps on :)

Hello folks of the bar,

Thank you for all of your feedback on our LJ Changes Discussion post. We've decided that the most practical solution that best suits the majority of our community (to the best of our knowledge) is to move the community to Dreamwidth and maintain a presence on LJ.

How this will work:

The community is now set up and live on Dreamwidth HERE. This will be our new home.

Please post all new posts to the Dreamwidth version, which has a moderation queue the same as we've had on LJ. Please also comment on the Dreamwidth version. If you don't have a personal Dreamwidth account you can do this using OpenID. If you have any problems, please do let us know - there's bound to be a few things that need cleaning up post-move.

On a monthly basis we will post a version of the usual monthly news post along with a list/summary of links and activity to Livejournal so that people on LJ will still have updates on their Friends page/news feed letting them know what's happening and giving you a place to chat in comments on LJ if you choose.

It's our comm annibirthday this weekend - that came around again quickly! - which is great timing for our traditional friends and friending meme. We're having a party, so people can friend the new Dreamwidth account, find each other on Dreamwidth, make new friends, and work out ways of keeping in touch. Consider this your invitation :)

It's an absolute pleasure being mods for this community and we hope to carry as many familiar friends with us to Dreamwidth as we can. You're all wonderful and THIS IS THE BEST BAR.

Your Mods
