I know I haven't been doing mod posts or anything recently, but I am still here and dealing with the mod work. I haven't created a version of this community on Dreamwidth (yet): if you are interested in doing so, contact me and we can talk about it. This version of the community will not be shutting down.
There is a new version of one of my communities, over_look
, now on Dreamwidth here
. From the userinfo: "The idea is to claim an overlooked fandom, character, or pairing. You define "overlooked". If you have all of canon for a fandom, but you haven't been writing for it, that counts. If you haven't written for a fandom in ages, that counts. If you'd like to try writing a pairing you haven't tried to write before, that counts. Originally, though, it was created to promote writing about minor characters, such as Tracey or Nandi from Firefly, or fandoms that haven't had much fanfic, like The Dark Is Rising. If you think it's overlooked, by you or everyone, then go for it. And although that summary was fiction-biased, if you want to claim something and then draw for it, then that's also fine. If you want to both write and draw for your claim, that's fine too."
I hope to see you there, if you're interested!
