Easy-to-consume canons post

[personal profile] alias_sqbr 2012-09-03 07:11 am (UTC)(link)
I vaguely recall a post about short, easy to obtain canons last year, could we have one this year? I am unfamiliar with a lot of the canons, but would happily watch and offer to draw for music videos etc, and I don't know which ones they are!

Sorry for the error, we thought sign-ups would automatically open based on our challenge settings, but in any case, sign-ups should be open now. Could you try again?

I did and it worked, thanks!

Having modded a demographic-specific community myself I know how tough and also annoying this kind of question can be to answer, but I'm wondering how circumspect requests (and entries) should be with regard to non-nominated white characters. For example, Knives Chau is one of few chromatic characters in Scott Pilgrim, and most of her significant canon relationships are with white people. Thus most shipfic I could ask for would in some sense go out of the scope of the challenge - but given that her love life is the number one catalyst to her character development, it is also relevant to who she is. Should I consider requesting such shipfic basically off-limits and restrict myself to gen or more obscure chromatic relationships, or throw in a simple "if you feel like going there I really enjoy Knives/Kim"?

Sorry!

[personal profile] wistfuljane 2012-09-03 10:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Hi -- requests and fanworks containing relationships that chromatic characters or people have with white characters or people are fine as long as the chromatic characters are the focus of the fanworks (& requests) and, if possible, the point of view characters.

carmarthen: "Would you like my hat?" (Default)

[personal profile] carmarthen 2012-09-04 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
Relevant to one of my planned requests but possibly also more broadly, is there a policy on crossovers with sources with white creators (e.g. is it okay to suggest in my letter/optional details that a Doctor Who crossover could be fun, although of course not as my ONLY suggestion)? I didn't see anything in the FAQ addressing crossovers with ineligible fandoms....

[personal profile] wistfuljane 2012-09-06 02:12 am (UTC)(link)
Hi! Sorry for taking so long to respond, but after discussion, our mod team agree it's fine to request crossovers; however, we would prefer if these crossover requests focus on sources by chromatic creators presently.

[personal profile] carmarthen 2012-09-06 02:24 am (UTC)(link)
Okay, cool! Thought that might be the case, but wanted to be sure (I long for someone to write Martha Jones and Sei Shonagon fighting alien crime in Heian Japan, but it's a rather specialized wish...maybe Yuletide will produce it someday).
