Here's the breakdown for how nominations to the tagset should work this year. I'll post a link to the tagset tomorrow, please use this post to ask about any questions related to the nominations process or regarding metafandoms. As we approve tags and have questions related to your nominations, I'll start a new post with those questions.

Nominating fandoms:

For Marvel and DC, generally we end up with nominations for the top-level All Media Type tags (which are Marvel and DCU respectively), mid-level metafandoms (eg MCU, DCU (Comics)), and specific fandoms (eg Hawkeye (Comics), The Flash (TV)).

For things like video game series (Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem) and TV shows with rolling continuity (Doctor Who and Torchwood, Buffy and Angel) it’s preferable to nominate on a metafandom. If you’re planning on nominating something like this, feel free to discuss in comments, otherwise we’ll ask for clarification as they come up in nominations. Fandoms with mostly rolling continuity but some bumps (Star Trek as a whole vs AOS, X-Men movies, etc) usually get grouped into multiple metafandoms in the same way as Marvel or DCU, but there’s less need to get as detailed (ie Star Trek and AOS as the only two categories is fine, no need to specify TNG vs DS9).

Nominating fandoms in this way also helps cut down on the need for crossovers. If you’re nominating a relationship that is a crossover, it gets nominated to the fandom Crossover. But if you’re nominating within a metafandom, that’s not an issue (see below for more details).

Generally speaking, if one media format AND the All Media Types format of a fandom are nominated, we’ll select the AMT type, though we will try and ask for clarification if it happens (since directors can make movies very different from the books).



Nominating relationships:

Please make sure it has three characters, and uses the / symbol instead of the & symbol between all characters.

Please always nominate to the highest applicable metafandom. If you do not disambiguate while nominating a relationship, it’ll be placed in the highest applicable metafandom. If you have multiple disambiguations in one relationship, it will be placed in the highest applicable metafandom.

Examples:

James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson: gets assigned to Marvel, since it could mean comics or MCU.
James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson (MCU): I assume this means one disambiguation for the relationship as a whole, and put it in MCU.
James "Bucky" Barnes(Ultimates)/Steve Rogers (MCU)/Sam Wilson (MCU): there is a comics disambig and a movies disambig so it gets assigned to Marvel, which covers both.

[personal profile] bookblather posting in [community profile] rainbowlounge
I would like to apologize formally for dropping the ball on this community. These last couple of weeks have been a garbage fire, but it's still on me, and I will do my very best not to let that happen again. Let's get me back on the rails and start our fall art movement!


Cubism

Set yourself a goal that you think you can complete between today, September 20th, and December 1st. This can be a number of colors completed, a certain palette, a number of styles or supplies used, a word count, a combination of these-- anything that you regard as a challenge. Comment on this post with your goal.

On December 1st, one of the mods will put up a post where you can comment reiterating your goal and whether or not you completed it. If you complete your goal, you get twenty Novelty Beads prompts, with an additional five prompt for every quarter to third you go over your goal, at the mods' discretion.

Goal-setting runs from today, September 20th, to October 15th. The challenge runs from today to December 1st. We will have an Amnesty Week immediately after as usual.

Set your goals in this post, and happy writing!

Pattern by Tereena Clarke of Artecy Cross Stitch based on a painting by Joseph Anton Koch.

Stitch parking level 2: achievement unlocked. I can't tell you how many times I went to park a thread and found another thread already parked there. I think I properly fixed everything I caught, but goodness only knows if this looks anything like it was supposed to.

I can’t decide if I’m ready to level up to the pattern I’m dying to make, or if I should do one more slightly harder pattern first before working my way up to that. My end goal is a massive HAED pattern with 234 colors.

The second picture is a distance shot because this pattern was done in the pointillist style, so the farther away you stand, the more detailed it looks.

This week was a good week for the project, I managed to get lots done. Helped in no small part by having the day off on Friday and having decided to binge listen to a podcast series while I was at it. Unsurprisingly, around five solid hours of cross-stitching does make an impact on a project.

NSFW Yurio Week Roundup

Sep. 17th, 2017 06:30 pm
yurionicefans: (Default)
[personal profile] ashiiblack posting in [community profile] yurionicefans
 I created something for every day of NSFW Yurio Week! Here’s what I made (please note everything listed below is Explicit):

Wondrous Moment - Pliroy (underage - Yuri is 16) - Theme: First Times - JJ tries to seduce Yuri by reading him terribly cheesy Russian poetry. Bit of humor, bit of smut. 

Pinned and Marked - Otapliroy (ambiguous age) - Theme: Biting and Marking - JJ catches Yuri flirting with his Yuri’s Angels and decides he and Otabek need to show them who he belongs to. Pretty much PWP.

[podfic] Why Can’t I Touch It? - Otayuri (underage) - Theme: AU/Crossover - Yuri and Otabek are friends from childhood, but there is a LOT of unresolved sexual tension. That changes when they begin masturbating in bed beside each other. I loved recording this fic by boxwineconfession (plus, her HBB verse is so much fun!).

Fifteen - Vikturio (Yuri is 25, but roleplays as though he is 15) - Theme: Size Difference - Yuri finds out that Viktor had a crush on him when he was fifteen and teases him in the most sexual way possible. Just two consenting adults enjoying some roleplay.

Stolen Moments - Vikturio (underage - Yuri is 16) - Theme: Possessiveness/Jealousy - Viktor and Yuri are having an affair behind Yuuri’s back. Viktor gives Yuri a ring to show his affection and Yuri shows it off whenever he has the chance. An exploration of the dynamics of a very inappropriate affair.

Madness in the Locker Room - Pliroy (underage - Yuri is 15) - Theme: Exhibitionism/Public Sex - This fic was inspired by art from the FABULOUS Luscious White Flame. JJ had turned Yuri down twice before, but after watching his exhibition, he couldn’t stop himself if he tried. (also, Otabek is a good bro) 

Open My Doors - Yu2 (Yuri is 19) - Theme: Free Day - In a post Viktuuri world, where Yuuri coaches Yuri, they have also started a secret relationship. It focuses on their decision to finally tell Viktor. This is a WIP, and I should be posting the second chapter sometime in the next week!

[personal profile] hauntedd posting in [community profile] yuletide
Hi fellow Yuletiders! Noms close in less than 24 hours (or maybe they've already closed by the time this is approved?) and as we move into signups and writing and reading, freneticfloetry and I wanted to give a small reminder/invitation (ok honestly, it's a copy/paste job with minor edits... #efficiency) to participate in the Misses Clause Challenge*.

Now in its seventh year, the Misses Clause Challenge was created to promote the inclusion, expansion, and celebration of women in fanfiction. We'd like to challenge you all to think about the ways women are represented in fanworks, and write fic either centered on female characters or fic within a fandom with a rich and diverse cast of characters that includes valuable and important female voices.

Participation is easy! Initially, the challenge set out to include more female characters in fic using the Bechdel Test as a barometer. But honestly, plenty of sources can (and do) successfully pass without putting female characters anywhere near the forefront. So the general rule for participating in the Misses Clause Challenge is simple:

Write women.

That's it! Write women who are celebrated, who are unsung, who are the heroes of their own stories or the unfortunate victims of circumstance. Write women talking, fighting, saving the day, or just going about their business. Write women of all ages, shapes, sizes, races, creeds, sexual orientations, mental and physical abilities, or moral fiber. Write women, full stop.

Easy enough, right? So if you’re willing, and we hope you are…

· Write a Yuletide assignment or treat with one or more women as the focus. Femslash, female POV, ensemble fic, whatever works for you — as long as there's a female character front and center, your fic fulfills the challenge.
· Tag your finished fic with "Misses Clause Challenge".

There is still maybe time to nominate women, if you're so inclined. And there is definitely time to think about requesting prompts that feature female characters so that the letters post is full of options.

From there, search out those that request women, maybe bookmark one for later, or even start a treat. There's a lot of female characters nominated annually and a number of requests will coincide with that. Maybe one of the letters might start or keep the creative juices flowing.

And to all of those who have taken up the challenge, or who are considering doing so this year, I just want to say, on behalf of both myself and freneticfloetry, Thank You. We try to keep this very low key with absolutely no pressure to participate, and yet we're continually blown away by the support and the number of folks who take on the challenge as well as the types of awesome fic that you guys create year after year. So, thank you, again, for your participation, your openness to the challenge, your totally legitimate concerns and critiques. Here’s to Yuletide 2017, and another great wave of new Misses Clause stories.

Sincerely,

G (hauntedd) & Court (freneticfloetry)


*The challenge name was meant to be a punny play on the fic season and a bad movie, and was not meant to be exclusionary in any way. (And yes, the "e" was intentional.)

Character Coordination

[personal profile] aunt_zelda posting in [community profile] yuletide
 Hi all!

This is a post I've been meaning to make for a few years now. Every year we have great challenges and collections, such as Misses Clause (promoting fics that pass the Bechdel Test) and collections for characters of color. However, the posts for those come during sign-ups, when people only have the tagset to work from. If nobody nominated any women or characters of color for your favorite small fandom, you're out of luck.

Look over your own nominations in these next three days. Look at the spreadsheet and the nomiations post on DW and LJ. Are these the characters you want to make requests for, write for, or both? Did you have a free slot and are you nominating them after looking at the requests tab on the spreadsheet? Are you already coordinating with a friend, or friends, to cover a big cast list?

Consider coordinating with fellow fans using the nomiantions posts and spreadsheet in these final days. Who is your cast list comprised of for your fandom? Are there women, are there characters of color, are there characters with disabilites? If someone who likes this fandom wants to participate in Misses Clause, will they be able to? If someone who likes this fandom wants to participate in a chromatic challenge, will they be able to? (Obviously not all fandoms can do this, some fandoms only comprise of a few characters at all, sometimes no one can find someone else to help with nominations. I mean this in general terms.)

I know every year only about 1/3rd of people nominating end up using the nominations coordination posts and spreadsheets. This year, why don't some of us help each other out to make the tagset more inclusive?

Edit: tl;dr: If you want to nominate more characters from a fandom, it's best to coordinate with fellow fans on the nominations pages I've linked above. If you don't want to, you don't have to.

Title: Renversé en écarté
Author: [personal profile] chestnut_filly
Pairing(s): Lilia Baranovskaya/Okukawa Minako
Rating: T
Warning(s)/contains: Characters dealing with antisemitism and racism
Word count: 7,476
Summary: In which Lilia Baranovskaya and Okukawa Minako discover that it is difficult to be the first and only, and difficult to be the latest in a line.
Notes: Pre-canon character study of Lilia and Minako meeting and dealing with the history and atmosphere of the ballet world. Terrible aspersions are cast on Vladimir Vasiliev's sexual prowess.

Links: Read on AO3

Teaser:
"Lilia can say with no exaggeration whatsoever that she’s never met another dancer like Minako. The girls and boys at the Bolshoi tend to eat, drink, and breathe dance, and Lilia freely admits she’s much the same. Minako, though. She has a life outside the theater, for all that it’s cobbled together and hasty and in the end quite shallow. It’s there, and that’s something different."
cross_stitch: Dreamwidth sheep with red cross stitches (Default)
[personal profile] glinda posting in [community profile] cross_stitch
I haven't made a sizeable cross-stitch project in ages, so I was looking for one to do and came across a very old project. Back when I first got into cross-stitch in my early teens I found a pattern for a flowerfairy that I wanted to make. It was a little overambitious for my age and patience level. (Not least because, I didn't realise when I bought it that it was just the pattern so I had to track down all the many individual shades of thread for it.) Anyways, a couple of years ago I got tired of it sitting in a box taunting me whenever I came across it, went through my thread collection and gathered all the threads for it that I had and took advantage of a craft store closing down to get the rest of the shades I needed and bagged them up so they were all together for when I next wanted a big project to work on.

Fast forward to this summer when I was looking for a bit of a challenge, I came across the fairy and decided that its time had come. I've been working away at it steadily for the last month or so but I keep meaning to and then forgetting to take photos of my progress along the way to keep me motivated, but I finally did today so I'm going to try to get back into posting weekly update posts as I've found them really motivating for large projects in the past.
