Fic: Once and Never Again (1/?) Rated R
Hey, I'm a little new to the Degrassi livejournal fandom but hell, I decided to post some of my Degrassi fan fiction here.
Title: Once and Never Again
Summary: Emma Nelson has the best luck until she forgets the essentials.
Disclaimer: I do not own Degrassi in any way, shape or form. No money is being made off this. It is also not intended for copyright infringement.
Rating: M; rated for later chapters Current Mood: full
Warning: Excess cursing in later chapters, alcohol references, and maybe some smut that I will have to tone down for this stupid fucking site. Also fluff and humor galore. I think Jay’s quite a bit out of character but six years of maturing and some new redemption can mellow a person out so let’s pretend Jay redeemed himself and mellowed out.
Author's Note/ Beta Credit: Takes place six years after season six. Emma’s twenty-four and Jay is twenty-six. There shall be three to six chapters and then a multi-chaptered sequel. Beta credit to the lovely Tammywammy. And before I forget, the title Once and Never Again is a song by the band, The Long Blondes. I don't own the song so lets not sue me.

We're a fantastic, ubber friendly and flexible Degrassi game looking for a few more great people. We'd especially love to see Toby Issac, Jimmy Brooks, and Danny Van Zandt. We not only welcome any canon Degrassi characters who are not already taken (or are dead) but we also allow original characters to be added to the mix. Come check us out!

Also, does anyone know the contact information for the guy/girl who ran the official Degrassi Myspace before it was hacked? I meant to get in touch with him for my research earlier, but now I'm not sure how.
Here are some more questions for you awesome Degrassi fans to help me out with. Again, you can leave your responses here (picking & choosing which questions to answer, if you want) or email them to rachael.maddux @ gmail.com.

I watched Degrassi right up until Liberty gets pregneant (like the one where she tells JT).
Can anyone please tell me what's happened since then? Thanks so much!

My name is Rachael and I am a senior at Oglethorpe University
in Atlanta, Georgia (USA). I am currently working on my Honors thesis, for which I have chosen to research the online Degrassi fan community.
I started watching the show in August 2006 after my roommate signed us up for a ridiculously extensive cable TV package which included The N. I’d heard about Degrassi before from some friends (who are all college aged and older), so when I saw that there was a marathon on I decided to check it out and see what all the fuss was about. This was when The N was showing “every episode ever,” just before Season 6 premiered… needless to say, I didn’t get much done for the next few weekends! The show was completely addictive and I immediately understood why my friends were so hooked.
I had already decided to do my Honors research on some kind of online fan community, but when I discovered Degrassi I knew that it would probably attract a really interesting group of people to study, so I scrapped all of my other ideas I dived right in.
I’ve created a Livejournal to use as a blog and also as a means to connect with other Degrassi fans. I’ve already joined a few Degrassi-related LJ communities, and I’ve been reading a few of the friends pages of a couple of Degrassi RPGs. I’ve also been investigating non-Livejournal Degrassi sites (like the Degrassi Boards
and some others).
Although I am just in the early phases of my research now, after I get a better idea of the “online world” of Degrassi, I would like to eventually communicate directly with some fans (you!) to get their (your!) first-hand perspective about what they think about Degrassi and how they interact with other fans. Until then, I will probably just be lurking around here (so I thought it would be nice if I introduced myself first!).
In the meantime, it would be great if you would like to friend me going_there
if you’re interested in reading my thoughts on my research and possibly commenting on my posts. I know I will probably have some Degrassi-related questions as I go about this project, and I figure that you all would be the best people to ask!
For now, if you happen to know of any great Degrassi websites, messageboards, or other communities, I would totally appreciate you leaving me a comment here or at my journal with those links.

Since the new episodes of Degrassi are airing tonight on The N. I thought I would post this to start discussions on what you think about them. Feel free to keep this community alive!
