FFA on Ozymandias, and other fandom/writing advice

Coal discusses: "is it okay for the author of a Yuletide-nominated original canon to write a treat?" With bonus "if you were the recip, how would you want that treat delivered?"

Challenging meme to find Characters Who Are Not At All Problematic (and then to figure out how they've actually been problematic all along).

The origins of the term "SJW", in serious detail, by someone who actually knows what they're talking about.

"What kind of summaries (on fic or anything else) actively draw you in?" Examples + advice.

Some anon filked Ozymandias, and I'm copying it in full for posterity:

I met a fan from an antique canon
Who said: "Two vast and readerless archives of fic
Stand in the internet...With them, in an lj comm,
Half f-locked, an abandoned meta discussion lies, whose detail
Tell that its writers well that canon read
Which yet survives, stamped in these activity-less things,
The troll comments that mocked them, and the juggernaut slash ship that fed:
And in the profile information these words appear:
'My name is Former Megacanon, Fandom of Fandoms:
Look on my fics, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The post- geocities and livejournal internet stretches far away.
