Happy 5th Birthday Big Pretzel!

Wow! Can you believe it? It was five years ago that our founder,ficwriter1966 asked if I would help her with a new SPN community that would have an upbeat theme – a place to share fic, art or other things that were outright funny, or would provoke an "awwwww" response. I readily agreed and thus, spn_bigpretzel was born on February 18, 2012! We have had a variety of help over the years, including saberivojo, lolaann1 and mamapranayama. And then few years ago dizzojay came along and helped breathe much needed new life into our little comm.

Some of our original mods have moved onto other things as real life or other interests have taken precedence.  I highly recommend you go visit ficwriter1966 over at her new haunt. It is worth the trip!

But dizzojay and I couldn’t let our 5th birthday go by without a celebration. As so many people have drifted away or have gone to share their fandom experience at other places online, we are grateful that this community still has some lifeblood to it. We appreciate each and everyone you and what you contribute. And so, we will be partying, not just on our actual birthday, but throughout the rest of the month of February!

Here are some of the fun things we have planned:

  • Oldies but Goodies” –your opportunity to rec/self- rec (or repost entirely) all of your favorite fic and art we have seen in the comm from the last five years!

  • Friending Meme- we have had some new members in the last year; wouldn’t it be wonderful to meet them and add some like-minded folks to your flist?

  • DEW- we will be having a birthday themed DEW!

  • Wish List- Is there something you would like- a fic, icon or banner, that maybe one of the comm. members could help you with? Or maybe something you could offer up as a gift? We have done this before as a way to bring us all together.

  • I need a Giant Slinky- a blast from the past that we use to offer our fellow members an internet hug or word of encouragement!

Thanks to dizzojay, we have some wonderful icons to use for these activities:

Now let’s get out there and party!

I was going to try and get a rec post together but half of the lasses and lads who partake over here haven't got everything on their name tags *bad members* lol. I'll see what I can do though :)

Hey all,

I'm mainly not around much because for various reasons I am about 3 seasons behind in watching the show. I intend to catch up at some point but am avoiding finding out much from what I haven't watched yet.

Can't believe it's been five years! Congratulations on running a positive drama-free fandom space for Supernatural fans who just want to have fun and enjoy the show! :-D

I know! It is hard to believe it has been five years! But we are glad you have been a part of it :)

Happy birthday, Big Pretzel! After 5 years, this comm is still the best around.

My love to all of you guys. You are the best!

So glad you have been a part of this amazing comm! You helped make it a wonderful place!

Happy birthday, Big Pretzel! After 5 years, this comm is still the best around.

My love to all of you guys. You are the best!

I'm pretty new here but I won't miss shouting out HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
This is such a wonderful place filled with love and joy!

I am so glad you joined us! I hope you are around for years to come and I hope you enjoy the celebration!

I love this community so much - humour is as much an integral part of Supernatural as is the angst and horror, but the ability not to take itself too seriously is definitely the key to its success - so it's fantastic to have somewhere to focus on that.

Here's to many more years of Big Pretzel!

While I have always enjoyed shows with a bent towards the supernatural, the humor is one of the reasons why I was drawn and have stayed with the show. And it why I love this place too!

I'm a bit late in commenting, but I'm thrilled that Spn_BigPretzel is celebrating five glorious years of bringing the smiles.

I've always described this comm as my spiritual home on Lj, and that will never change, as long as 'the Pretzel' is around - and I hope that will be for a very long time! I love being a mod of this fantastic community and I'm very proud to be a small part of its success xx
