Easy to offer fandoms: list and resources

Hello, doers of darkness -- As you're strategizing for Kaleidoscope sign-ups, here are some works originally published online or have been made available online for your further consideration, and check out our post highlighting sources from underrepresented regions as well.

We try to limit ourselves to mostly linking to legal sources or to works out of copyright or not licensed for English distributions, and most of the links have regional restrictions. Posts like How To Access BBC iPlayer And More Online Video Internationally For Free, How to access BBC iPlayer, Hulu, Fancast, Pandora, any other region-restricted sites, On The Internet, Nobody Knows You're Not In The USA and Using BBC iPlayer, Spotify or Hulu internationally offer advices on how to bypass regional restrictions. Our locked source-sharing resource post also provides links to ambigously legal places where you may be able access some of the works listed below if you are unable to access them due to regional restrictions (and some works not listed below, but nominated for Kaleidoscope).

For folks with Netflix,

Pumzi is currently available on instant watch (in the Africa First volume 1). So are Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame and Smoke Signals. I imagine a bunch of other movies and some of the TV nominated might be as well. Since Netflix is a subscription service not available to everyone, it's probably not worth checking them all, but maybe a reminder to folks who already have it that sources they're interested in might be available on instant watch?

Hòugōng zhēn huán zhuàn | 後宫: 甄嬛传 | The Legend of Zhen Huan (TV) is available in its entirety online through LeTV, which claims it offers material through legal channels: http://www.letv.com/ptv/pplay/73868.html

(Mandarin dialogue with Chinese subs & there are 76 episodes, but so far I'm the only requester and watching, say, every 10th episode would be more than enough to write any fic I can imagine. It's a harem melodrama with pretty costumes and a basic plot following a concubine who participates in shenanigans and plotting and loses her innocence along the way.)
