Newsletter Ed. 3

First of all: massive amount of apologies for abandoning the newsletter for... HOLY CRAP, 2 months. Just imagine me wearing a hairshirt and going all Brother Justin on myself. We'll do our best to keep a regular schedule from here on.

Notes from the mods:

1) For fanfic, our policy is only to include stories on livejournal unless links to off-LJ fic have been posted in main Life-related LJ communities. If you want to read more, there is a small collection of Life fanfic over at fanfiction.net.
2) We will not be linking to comment-fic or drabbles under 300 words.
3) For WIPs, we'll hold off the linkage until the stories are finished.
4) Pairing short-hand for those unfamiliar with the custom: forward slash between the names (e.g. Crews/Reese) = romantic or sexual context, vs. Crews & Reese = non-romantic partnership story.

New Fansites:

The Bakery, which is about all things Damian Lewis, including news, links, and a large photo gallery of Lewis' works.
aj has set up a new Life community, liveblogginlife, as a forum to carry on her livebloggin' Wednesday Friday tradition once the show comes back.

SPOILERS ALERT: Casting sides for 2x01, compliments of wickedandcruel (zip file, 932KB). Note that these contain *detailed* script info for the 2x01 and that we may take down the link later depending on the, um, paranoia level. Anyway. Click at your own risk! (An alternative link to the zip on mediafire in case the original link goes kaput.) Also, please do not discuss the spoilers in the community without warning, e.g. on a separate post under a cut-tag clearly-marking the content as spoilers.
