Listen carefully. Do you hear that? It's the sound of thousands of fangirls crying. Why? You ask, why are the fangirls crying?

The fangirls are crying because there's a promo that's out there, somewhere, sitting on a dusty old DVR begging to be uploaded to YouTube. There's a Canadian Television Promo for episode 6.08 that reflects some...not so good things, and one by one, the fangirls are falling.

Won't you help?

First poster to post the CTV promo gets a drabble, no limits on rating.

Just this summer, Stacie had an operation to remove additional growths from her breasts that was paid for totally by funds recieved from the Support Stacie Author Auctions. That's how much of a difference fandom can make.

Sign-ups are due by September 4th, 2009.

Never let it be said that Owen/Cristina fans are complacent. We've managed to vanquish two key Mer/Der scenes in the Battle of the Sexes poll at ABC!

Unfortunately, in the semi-finals, we have two Owen/Cristina scenes facing off each other. The smokin' hot SP kiss vs the "Take care now" scene. The winner will go up against "Cristina/Meredith fight" or "Derek/Mark fight", whichever wins this round.

Go here to the ABC "Grey's Anatomy" page and click on the Battle of the Sexes graphic to vote!

First off, I just have to say that I think it's wildly amusing that Meredith and Derek finally got engaged this week and it's completely overshadowed by the story of Cristina and Owen. It's being discussed far more on the message boards and it just makes me proud to be a part of this community and to ship this couple. Owen/Cristina are definitely the win.

So first up is a poll from MSN on whether or not Cristina and Owen should still be together. Obviously, with one stipulation or another almost 94% of readers agree that they should be together.

Like that isn't completely obvious.

Secondly, there's a great review from Matt Roush on TV Guide which says:

Romantic Gesture of the Week: Derek’s proposal to Meredith on Grey’s Anatomy in an elevator decorated with X-rays of his past surgeries, each linked to memories of his beloved. He tells Mer: “You get the rest of us to move forward because you’ve seen worse. You’ve survived worse. And you know we’ll survive, too.” Sigh. But will Izzie survive, last seen cradled in Alex’s arms in the hospital bed post-surgery (as my pal Rochell Thomas noted in her recap, echoing Izzie and Denny). And tell me that hearts didn’t break over Cristina telling Owen (after powerfully passionate make-up sex) “I can’t handle this after all.” Understandably, she can’t fall asleep next to him out of fear he might spaz out and strangle her in a post-traumatic trance again. Derek, fix this man! Kevin McKidd is the best thing to happen to this show in several seasons.

Of course he's the best thing to happen to the show. That's a no brainer. :)

Finally, I was kind of just perusing the community stats and everything this morning and I am so excited about this. We are at 317 members. Beyond that? There has been at least one post to our community everyday for the past three and a half months straight. Everyday. That's thanks to you guys. Thank you for keeping this community so great. I'll be posting later with the first week of hiatus fun- an icon contest. :) Open up your graphics programs and get ready to get creative.

And lastly, a HUGE thank you to our fabulous and uber-talented graphics wizard mod, [livejournal.com profile] far_to_nowhere who made our new banner and icon that sends me into palpitations and makes me watch the clip again every time I see it.

Unfortunately, there is a hiatus coming and it's a long one folks. However, here at [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after, we have some great activities and contests planned for our members to keep them occupied in the mean time.

1) [livejournal.com profile] jeribearrn and [livejournal.com profile] angelamermaid will duke it out in a fic battle royale. Starting on Monday, each will write a fic based off of this spoiler (yes that's a spoiler, read the fic and the spoiler only if you beware. But I'd reccommend reading it.). [livejournal.com profile] jeribearrn will give [livejournal.com profile] angelamermaid a prompt to which she'll have to reply to with a fic using that prompt and reissues a prompt in response. Work for us, fun for you.

2) Caption this! Contest. [livejournal.com profile] angelamermaid will provide an image to be captioned, and you the member will find a caption that fits the scene!

3) Graphics contest! Just because you can't write doesn't mean that you can't get in on the fun. [livejournal.com profile] jeribearrn will be hosting a graphics contest with different categories- icons, mood themes, and banners.

4) The ultimate Cristina/Owen friending meme. Find a friend as Owen/Cristina obsessed as you are! Created by [livejournal.com profile] far_to_nowhere.

5) The Owen and Cristina video scavenger hunt. Sure, you know what color Owen's boxer briefs were in the season premiere. Yes, you know exactly what the color of the flowers were that he brought to Cristina, but do you remember what was on the poster in the background when Owen told Cristina that he liked the back of her neck? We'll find out!

Here at [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after, your moderation team cares about your sanity and wants to see you make it through the hiatus without any random acts of PTSD or therapy sessions. We can only do so much though. As always, we encourage one of our over 300 members to continue with the creative contributions- videos, graphics, fic- this community thrives because of you guys.

So step up, enjoy, and let's kick this hiatus' ass!

As you can see, we now have a list of guidelines for posting to [livejournal.com profile] in_the_after as well as a tutorial for how to place things behind and LJ cut. I would encourage everybody to read that post so that you know how to post to the community, and how to do it properly. If you have any questions, please ask them here so that myself or one of the other moderators can attempt to help you.

I've changed some of the tags in our tag list to clean things up a little bit, so please take notice of that. All of the Hiatus Survival Guide stuff is now under one tag. Challenges cover the naming challenge we had as well as the drabble challenge. I am also in the process of adding a 'captionized' tag for [livejournal.com profile] angelamermaid's captions of awesomeness.

I may do a fic request thread later this week in which people may go to a singular post to post fic requests/prompts for authors to fill. Let me know if you think this is a good idea.

Thanks to all of you for making this community what it is. We're growing every day and I couldn't be happier with what we do. Only a little over 24 hours to go until the new episode! Let's make them fly by quickly!

GREY'S ANATOMY - "Stairway to Heaven" - Bailey grows desperate as a patient's condition becomes more and more dire. Everyone in the hospital is stepping up to try to find the boy a new organ donor, including Meredith, who considers a death row patient's wish to die before execution. Meanwhile, an injury leaves Mark in a compromising position in the OR and Cristina awkwardly avoids Owen, on "Grey's Anatomy," THURSDAY, JANUARY 22 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

I'd also like to point out that we're over 200 members!! We rock, y'all!

I would have taken the time to make a 'Happy New Year' Owen and Cristina Banner, but alas, I've worked two 12 hour shifts in the past two days and I have one more on for tomorrow so you get this:


For a little added fun, rather than just being the typical 'Happy New Year' LJ post, it's another comment game. In the comments below post a resolution (or two or three!) from the POV of a Grey's Anatomy character. I'll post mine below as an example.

Izzie: This year, I resolve to get a freakin' CT Scan.
Owen: I resolve to enjoy single malt scotch as much as she'll let me. I mean it. As much as it will let me.
The Chief: I resolve to quit being an emo girl and realize that my surgical program sucks because I suck.

Get the point? :) Let's see who has the funniest!
[identity profile] nursebadass.livejournal.com
Today, they're reporting that there's a very real chance that LJ may go under- which frankly causes me to weep like Cristina in the season 3 finale. (I'm free...dammit dammit dammit).

So anyway, below is a poll on what you would like to see happen with In The After. I'll glance over the results probably tomorrow at some point and start working on a replacement just in case on Thursday for anyone who is interested in having a backup.

Personally, I think this is a great group of people and I'd love to see this community continue to thrive. So anway- answer polls away.

(Thank God for my paid account with all these polls, but then I'm wondering- wtf is going to happen to my money?!)

[Poll #1326378]
[identity profile] nursebadass.livejournal.com
I just have to post that we officially have 100 members y'all. It's been just a couple days over a month and we're already at 100 members. It truly speaks to these awesome characters, but more than that? Our awesome community.

Keep joining, keep participating and let's make December fly by!
