sorkinverse is a challenge-based community where you compete in three teams to earn points. There will be posted challenges ranging from graphics, writing, trivia, word games, thinking games and just plain luck.

We are concentrating on the television shows by Aaron Sorkin (specifically Sports Night, The West Wing and Studio 60). This means that you should have seen at least some episodes from at least one of the shows; this is much more fun if you know the show/s! You don't need any special skills to join this community, it is just for fun.

To join the community turn in an application here. Don't worry, it's only to get you placed in a team. Then you will get an invitation to your new team community and this community. Make sure you accept them!

Fandom: Sports Night
Title: It's Just Sex, Except for How it's Not
Pairing: Natalie/Dan
Rated: PG13
Notes: Takes place after the series went off the air, by maybe six months. It also takes place after the fic i'm currently trying to write but can't seem to. I guess that would make that fic the prequel, to be posted at a later date.

For hailpoetry, as she loves Dan/Natalie as much as I do.

you might as well tell me so I don’t have to humiliate you in a room full of our closest friends and colleagues with this knowledge that I have that you say I don't

Research participants?
Hi, I'm Jacqueline. I'm a media studies major at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. This semester I am completing a subject called New Media and Society and for my term paper I have decided to examine Sports Night fandom.

In early April I will be performing some qualitative research the form of which I have yet to decide, possibilities include, voice interviews over Skype, interviews over an IM service, surveys through snresearchreg or emailed surveys (this will largely depend on your preferences) the questions will include:

~ Basic demographic information (age, sex, location etc.)
~ How long have you been involved in Sports Night fandom?
~ How do you participate in Sports Night fandom?
~ Has the way you participate in fandom changed over time?
~ Why do you participate in fandom?
~ Are you involved in other fandoms?
~ What are the differences between the way you participate in Sports Night fandom and other fandoms in which you are involved?

What I need now is for you to express your interest in participating by filling in the sign-up sheet at snresearchreg, a community I have devoted to this project. Please watch the community if you want to receive updates as to what is happening with my paper and to eventually read the finished product.

By filling out this form you are in no way obligated to participate in my research, it is simply an indication that you may be interested in helping out with my paper.

Josh Charles interview
I've just posted a new online Josh Charles interview over at sportsnightlink.

It is quite alarming, or possibly just coincidental, how life mirrors art - Josh Charles has an awful lot in common with the Dan Rydell in my head, although the Dan Rydell in my head can cook (he just chooses not to).

One Shot Fic: Tem-pes-tu-ous
Title: Tem-pes-tu-ous
Author: Squeeka Cuomo
Rating: PG
Characters: Dan, Casey and Natalie
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Summary: As a writer, Casey McCall had a natural affinity for words. Very much to the chagrin of his partner Dan Rydell.

SNArchive admin
I spent a bit of free time this weekend adding tags to the snarchive community, which I kind of enjoyed (because I am a huge nerd), and which I hope may help a little in finding a particular fic or author in future. It's a very basic set - the general outline is as follows:

author: [author's name]
category: this includes het, slash, gen, crossover, a/u and, interestingly, llamas
character: [character name] - for a crossover character, the name of their show's added in brackets after the name, for example - character: josh lyman (the west wing)
post: this will generally be fanfic - there's also a tag for meta, if anyone ever happens to write any!

The full list is under hereCollapse )

Obviously I didn't have time to read every single fic in the archive, so some of my tabbing could no doubt be improved - please feel free to go through and amend the tags on your own fics. And if people wouldn't mind using tags when they post in the future (it's easiest to use the 'edit tags' option after you've posted), then that would be lovely. If not, one of the site maintainers can always fix it afterwards. We're like that.

Crack_Van recs, January 2008
I've just finished reccing Sports Night as a guest fandom on crack_van for January and, just for posterity or something, here's the list of what I picked: twelve fics, mostly slash (some gen, one with a hint of Dan/Natalie), and one crossover with Oz. All heavily Dan-centric, but that's only to be expected.
