BANNER TIME

(Insert this code to signal boost!)




As much as we love the LiveJournal banner that [personal profile] mimblexwimble has created for us here at OhSam (Thank you so much, lovely!), it's time for a little update. BRING OUT YER BANNERS.

Put all your abundant creativity to work and cook up a new banner for our comm! Details:

~Landscape orientation
~980 x 500 pixels, 100 dpi
~Any colors, b&w, graphics, original art, animation, font-art, you name it!
~SFW
~Include “Oh Sam, hurt/comfort, fanworks and recs” somewhere in the image. (Or space for us to add later, if you're not comfortable with fonts.)
~Since we're a hurt/comfort comm, Sam should be in some form of discomfort or being comforted, but please keep the gore to a minimum, out of courtesy for our squeamish members. ;) Believe it or not, there are a few.
~Previously displayed art can be used (as long as it's your own handiwork), but please re-design it to fit our size requirements.

DEADLINE: September 29th, 2017

After which, we'll display the entries anonymously and let the community vote for the one that would work best for our header!

Submissions: please email us your entry as a link, .png, .jpg. or .gif to ohsamtumbles@gmail.com

Questions or concerns can be posted below in the comments or DMs or emailed to us, and we'll get back to you asap.

Just a reminder that the fills for the Celebrating Sam meme are now closed. Thanks for participating! We've seen some awesome stuff over the past week. The mods will be working on updating the masterlist, but let us know if you see something missing once we give the word that it has been updated.

And here we are! Time to celebrate our Sammy the best way we know how!

This is the official fills post for the Celebrating Sam challenge, brought to you by OhSam (LJ/tumblr) and spnlittlebro (tumblr)! If you’ve created a fanwork for one of the prompts from our list of prompts here, please post a link to it in the comments of this post, along with which prompt you’re filling. Anon commenting is enabled for tumblr users to also post links if you don’t have an LJ account.

You can use the format in the text box below for posting your comment. Copy and paste it into a new comment and fill all of the "your info goes here" blanks with descriptions of your work. On the last line, specify what type of work you're linking to (i.e., type "Fic" instead of "Fic/Art/Work Category" and "AO3" instead of "LJ/tumblr/AO3/etc" if you're linking to a fic posted on AO3).





Posting will run from Monday, May 1st to Sunday, May 7th. A few reminders before you post:

• If you’re posting something on tumblr, please don’t forget to use the #celebratingsam tag so the mods can track and reblog your fills!
• Each prompt is open (no claims were made), and can be filled by multiple people. Please post each fill as a new comment to this post, though, with the prompt you used, so we can easily track them. Don’t post a new fill as a comment to someone else’s.
• No spoilers for unaired episodes.
• No self-insert fics, please.
• Play nice – no flaming, no bashing, no fighting. Any comments that break this rule will be deleted.
• Feedback is love!
• No spam.






Send any questions to the mods of OhSam or spnlittlebro:
quickreaver on LJ/quickreaver on tumblr
cowboyguy on LJ/spacecowboyguy on tumblr
samshinechester on tumblr
wetsammywinchester on tumblr

Have fun! Happy birthday, Sam!

It's almost time, folks! Starting Monday, May 1st and running through Sunday, May 7th, you can post your prompt fills for the Celebrating Sam fanworks event! As a reminder, submit any hurt/comfort, Sam-centric original work (fic, art, graphics, poetry, gif sets, vids, you name it!) based on one of the 200+ prompts in the prompting post.

What happens on Monday?

  • A masterpost will go up here on OhSam to keep track of the fills.

  • You can post your work on either LJ or tumblr (tagged with #celebratingsam).

  • Make sure to reference which prompt you're filling in your post.

  • If it's a fic, include any rating, warnings, and pairings information for readers.

  • If you post a fill on LJ, please comment on the masterpost with a link to your LJ.

  • Tumblr users should tag with #celebratingsam and mods at spnlittlebro and ohsamtumbles will reblog (these will be placed in queue to spread them out so don't worry if you don't see it reblogged right away).

  • If you post on tumblr, also comment with a link to your work on the LJ masterpost (anon commenting will be enabled for this purpose). We want people who provided prompts to be able to find all the fills!

  • If you want to track the posts on tumblr, track #celebratingsam.

Let us know if you have any questions! See you tomorrow!

Here we go! Welcome to the official Celebrating Sam masterpost of prompts, brought to you by OhSam (LJ/tumblr) and spnlittlebro (tumblr)! Thanks for joining us, and we hope you all have a lot of fun this month as we pay tribute to Sam Winchester in this multi-platform fanworks extravaganza!

Hey, Sam fans! It’s almost time to celebrate the birthday of our favorite little brother, and we’re doing that the way we do it best – with a meme! This time it’s a little different, though. With our recent addition of the OhSam tumblr, we’re teaming up with SPN-littlebro to host a cross-platform birthday extravaganza!

Here’s how it’s going to work.

Saturday, March 25th: A master post will go up here on the OhSam LJ for people to leave one-word/one-phrase prompts (for example: “autumn”, “blood loss”, “surprise”). Please leave only one prompt per comment, to make it easier to keep track of prompts and fills. Anon posting will be enabled for non-LJ users to leave prompts, as well.

Saturday, April 1st: The masterpost for prompts will close, and no new prompts can be added after this point. There won’t be any claims – each prompt is open and can be filled by multiple people. We’re excited to see the variety of things you all come up with!

April: You have the month of April to work on fills. These can be any hurt/comfort, Sam-centric original work (fic, art, graphics, poetry, gif sets, vids, you name it!).

Monday, May 1st to Sunday, May 7th: Another masterpost will go up on OhSam LJ to keep track of the fills, and you can begin posting your work on either LJ or tumblr. If you post a fill on LJ, please comment on the master fills post with a link to your LJ. Tumblr users should tag their creations with #celebratingsam and, if you can, post a link of LJ when you fill a prompt. Anon commenting will be enabled for this purpose, but if you can’t, feel free to let the mods at @spnlittlebro or @ohsamtumbles know and we’ll make sure your fill gets added to the list.

Send any questions to the mods (either blog, either platform), and let the celebration begin!

And please, invite your friends and share one of the lovely banners below. The more, the merrier!

Hey, OhSammers! We've been experiencing a rash of spambot posts lately. Until LJ gets them under wraps, we're moderating all posts to the comm. I suspect it'll end soon, but we'll approve your recs ASAP! And hopefully, we can change the moderation status sooner rather than later.

It's November 2, an auspicious (if ominous) day for our darling Sam, so to herald his introduction to The Red Stuff, let's revisit an annual tradition. Welcome to the OhSam Triple Play 2016! This year, we're offering a focus on a reoccurring theme in Sam's life: blood.

"Blood" could be interpreted in many ways. Family don't end with blood. The demon blood addiction. Injury. Familial woes. Blood magicks. Simply the color red. If it can be related to blood, even vaguely? IT'S ON POINT.

Alright, everyone, it’s nearly Valentine’s Day! You know what this means? It’s the perfect opportunity to show our love for our favorite Winchester by doing what we do best – hurting him, maiming him, making him sick, putting him through emotional torture. Y’know, the usual.

Welcome to ohsam’s “You Only Hurt the One You Love” meme!

Saw this on my tumblr dash and thought[livejournal.com profile] ohsam would be the perfect place to pimp it, eh? :D

Most beloved [livejournal.com profile] ohsam community members,

The time has come for me to step down as moderator for this community. Real life obligations and my own slow drift away from the show (but not its fans!) have made it clear that I need to pass the torch to a new generation of people who love it best when Sam is bleeding (or fainting, or crying, or... you get the idea). As sad as it makes me to do this, I think it would be even sadder if my lack of involvement was what signalled the end of this fine community of h/c writers.

I am therefore putting out a call to any and all who would be interested in taking up the reins and breathing new life into this place. Please contact me, and we'll hash things out.

All my love,

[livejournal.com profile] ratherastory

Greetings, fair community members!

This is your friendly neighbourhood mod reminding you that the challenge deadline is this coming May 15th. If you would like an extension, please contact me or any of the other mods and maintainers, and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

If you finish your fanwork after the deadline, you may of course still post to the community! Just use the "amnesty" tag rather than the challenge tag.

Happy creating! :)
[identity profile] ratherastory.livejournal.com
Ahoy, intrepid community members!

I must extend an apology to all of you. Real Life has thrown me a curve ball, so the bad news is that claims won't be happening for another day. The good news is that you have an extra day for prompting! I will be extending the first round of claims by one day to compensate for the delay.

Again, my sincerest apologies.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] ohsam members,

Today is our FIVE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY. Can you believe it? I certainly can’t. We went from a teeny fledgling community to one that’s over 1,000 members strong! It’s incredible, is what it is, and it’s all thanks to you!

In order to celebrate, we are having a fanworks challenge! Remember those? Well, technically they used to be fic-only challenges, but we are forever seeking to broaden our horizons here at [livejournal.com profile] ohsam, am I right?
