My stocking is up over at [community profile] fandom_stocking for any one who wants to leave something. :) Please tell me if you do have a stocking of your own. I'm looking forward to making some fills. (Sign-ups are still possible by the way.)

It's a really low pressure thing, so come and join the fun!

fandom_stocking

[community profile] fandom_stocking is taking wishlists now. :) I really love this time of year.
It will be a while until the stockings are hanging and I hope I find a few I can fill after my yuletide story is finsihed.

O.o

Okay. I’m a bit freaked out. The Detective Conan drabble I wrote for a fellow Conan fan during [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking last year is getting so many hits that it seems to be the DC thing with the most hits on Ao3. How did that happen???

There needs to be much more Conan fic on the Archive obviously...

Yuletide

I was abit sad that nobody nominated TB for yuletide this year. I’d loved to offer it (and it would probably have been my fourth request, too). I really would need a prompt to write more for my beloved fandom.

But I’m very happy with my assignment. It’s something I never wrote before and the request is right up my alley with room for interesting character exploration. I’ll do some canon review this weekend and then I’ll get to plotting and writing this thing! :D

Dear Yuletide Author!

I hope you’re having fun with the exchange and enjoy your yuletide 2012! Thank you for writing in one of my rare fandoms. I’ll appreciate any fic you’ll come up with as it will be fic for any one of these small fandoms that are all equally close to my heart.

All the things I write here are, of course, optional and you can completely disregard them. But if you want to know a little about my likes and dislikes and why I love these fandoms - here it goes:

I do like all sorts of pairings: het, slash/femslash/yaoi/yuri and moresomes. Sex in stories is fine, although I’d rather not read anything that caters to hardcore kinks. I don’t like gender-stereotyping and character bashing.

I also do love good old gen and am completely happy to see the characters everything from normal day to day stuff to outrageous adventures. I tend to read stories on the more angsty side of the spectrum, but occasionally I enjoy a good dose of humour, too.

Yuletide????!

Am I reading this right? We have a [livejournal.com profile] yuletide post in early September and nominations open at the end of the month??? \^.^/ Oh my god, yuletide!

My nominations are pretty set (even my letter is half written :P ). No surprises really. My nominations will be pretty much in line with last year and my Parallels nomination.

Yuletide is coming!

Parallels Exchange

Someone made me a wonderful Arslan senki vid! Check it out:



God, I wish this fandom was more active and would produce more wonderful fanworks for me to fawn over. *.* Small fandom exchanges are my only chance to get anything for it... So thank you very much, dear Parallels vidder! I'm a very happy person now.

You can leave feedback and check out the other fanworks (mostly fic, I think) in the AO3 collection.

The new Trailers/footage for the Kenshin motion picture looks so damn good, that I’m getting right out impatient. Isn’t it August already????

Some nice person made a roundup post with the newest trailers. Really amazing!

Sailor Moon 2013?

Interesting. Apparently after all these years we will get another Sailor Moon anime next year. And it will be closer to the manga story which I find actually a little interesting. I’m not deeply into the Magical Girl stuff, but this does make me a little nostalgic. :P

Now can I get a real Tokyo Babylon anime?

Parallels

I have my assignment for the Parallels Exchange and just now I've carefully studied my recipients letter. I always need a couple of days to think about what to write, but I have several vague ideas that could grow into a solid stories - so this is a promising start. :)

I hope whoever writes for me is having fun with this exchange!

Letter for my Parallels writer/creator

Dear Writer!

Thank you for writing in one of my rare fandoms. I’ll appreciate any fic you’ll come up with!

All the things I write here are, of course, optional and you can completely disregard them.

I do like all sorts of pairings: het, slash/femslash/yaoi/yuri and moresomes. Sex in stories is fine, although I’d rather not read anything that caters to hardcore kinks . I don’t like gender-stereotyping and character bashing.
If you’re not shippy, that isn’t a problem, because I love gen stories, too. I’m happy to see the characters do everything from normal day to day stuff to outrageous adventures. I tend to read stories on the more angsty side of the spectrum, but occasionally I enjoy a good dose of humour, too. I like complicated characters, ambiguous relationships and uneasy romance.

Parallels 2012 signups

Signups for the Parallels Fic Exchange 2012 have started - although strictly speaking it will be a multimedia exchange. I'll offer fic though. :)

Details about the exchange can be found @ [livejournal.com profile] parallelsfic. Signup announcment is here. And here you can look up what people have nominated.

Expect my Dear Writer letter soonish. :D I'm still trying to decide the details of my signup.

Ao3 hits meme

So [livejournal.com profile] navaan encouraged me to do this although I have only a few stories up on the Archive. I still don’t have too many things up because I’m too lazy to go through my old fic :P, but that will make it interesting to see how this changes when I put up more.

1. Play (Tokyo Babylon, yuletide)
2. Distraction (Detective Conan, Fandom Stocking)
3. New Tomorrow (Arslan senki, Parallels)
4. Gut Instinct (Detective Conan, Girl saves Boy)
5. In Her Heart (Final Fantasy X, X-2)
6. Forward (Final Fantasy VII, Fandom stocking)
7. Counting On You (Hagaren, Fandom Stocking)
8. She'll never know (Final Fantasy VII)
9. More Than Meets The Eye (Arslan senki, Fandom Stocking)
10. Taking Care Of Him (Tokyo Babylon)

No surprises there really. ^^; Yuletide story is on top, followed by other gifts and the bigger fandoms and the few other things up there are just too obscure. *hehe*

Fanfiction.net?

Is it true there is (another) purge going on an ff.net? What’s it about this time? I never used the site for uploading, but there are a few fandoms that have fic only on that one site. Are they trying to clean up their content again, or what?

Asian Source Rare Pair Exchange: Parallels Nominations

For everyone interested in "yuletide rare" anime and manga fandoms this might be of interest:

Nominations for Parallels 2012 are open now. You can nominate five characters per fandom.

Last year I was lucky to get an awesome fic for Jiraishin - a fandom that has no fic outside this exchange I know of. :P

GinEiDen

Why do I always - always - forget how deeply epsiodes 81 and 82 get to me. T_T Every bloody time.
You’d think I’d learn... It’s not as if I don’t know what’s going to happen after all!

Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu - Legend of the Galactic Heroes

I’m currently rewatching Ginga Eiyû Densetsu (Legend of the Galactic Heroes) and it makes me remember why I love it so much! Ever since I discovered Star Trek when I was really, really small I’ve had this very special love for epic Space Opera and loved it even more when it came with complicated politics and interesting characters. So GinEiDen obviously was destined to be one of my favourite sci-fi anime’s of all time. (Of course, it’s a novel series first, but I’ve never come around to read them. Not, yet. I will one day!)

Ginga eiyû densetsu is a complicated space opera with a cast so big it’s hard to keep track of everybody. But that is also what I love most of all about it: It has complicated characters and many of them. The story is set in a distant future where humanity has spread through part of our galaxy and Earth isn’t relevant any more. Terraforming seems to be a simple endeavour in this future.

AO3 and OTW

If you are using the AO3 you may already know about the organization behind the Archive and its other projects like fanlore and more.

All these projects cost money, of course, so maybe it is time to think about donating something! The Member Drive started today!
