    • Matt Binder wrote in Salon that right-wing conservatives in the U.S. were trying to exploit the activities of misogynistic fans for personal gain and political capital. "A common tactic used by right-wingers is the call to 'stop politicizing everything' — while at the same time trying to push forth their own political agenda in the culture wars, of course. Keeping politics out of any art form is laughable, but there is a certain extra level of hilarity in attempting to do so with one that already has a long history of social justice...these are actual panels from an actual Green Lantern co-starring Green Arrow comic from April 1970 addressing racial justice head-on."
    • At Medium is the Message, Rex Sorgatz discussed changing habits regarding spoilers. "Back in the aughts, we survived a similar crisis, when two cultural events coincided:The quality of television programming suddenly got much better [and] The conversations around television exploded on social media. The collision of these trends triggered a nuclear reaction — a pop culture fission, spewing immense heat. People got very, very serious about The Spoiler Alert. The burgeoning recap society, in particular, was put under immense scrutiny."
    • Japan Times talked about how marketing tricks meant fans were skewing the music sales charts. "The problem is that music purchases by idol fans aren’t really music purchases at all: They are a sort of abstract currency by which the fans make extravagant expressions of love for the group — the more you buy, the greater your love. They’re a completely different class of consumer from someone who simply buys a song in order to listen to it, and trying to force them to behave like traditional music fans misses the point."
    • The Millions featured a long piece from Elizabeth Minkel on academic courses on fanfiction. "The cynical side of me expected to hear that a fanfiction class in an Ivy League English department would’ve been met with criticism from the old guard...But [Jamison] hasn’t encountered professional backlash at Princeton or back home in Utah. 'I’m sure there are people who think that but they haven’t told me about it — not my colleagues...I get more pushback on YA and, frankly, on Victorian women’s poetry than I do on fanfic. Nothing can match the snideness with which male scholars of modernism tend to regard Victorian poetry by women.'”

    • Bustle's Emma Lord focused on the successful protest of a fanfiction 'comedy' act at WonderCon as part of discussing misconceptions about fanfic writers that she's tired of. "WonderCon recently had to pull Chris Gore’s 'Fan Fic Theater' panel, in which he was going to read out loud actual fan fiction and make fun of it for sport. Like many fellow authors, I took to Twitter to question what the panel was for, and within thirty seconds of my incredibly civil tweet asking what was up, I’d been blocked by Chris Gore himself...It didn’t take long for the convention to cancel the whole thing, because duh, WonderCon, you can’t make fun of the very audience for your event and expect them to not get defensive about it."
    • The Age reported on fans' reactions to the murder of a cosplayer in Australia with a display of numerous pieces of fan art. "[A] global group of cosplay fans...are expressing their grief through art. Masa Vukotic was a well-regarded member of the cosplay - or costume play - community...Many members of Melbourne's cosplay community have paid tribute to the teen with sketches and paintings of Masa dressed in her signature 'lolita' style. Some admitted they had never met Masa, but felt compelled to draw images of her or post photos of themselves wearing pink in her honour, her favourite colour."
    • Comic Book Resources wrote about a discussion on The Nightly Show about fandom and diversity. Marvel’s director of content and character development, Phil Jimenez, said "It feels strange to me that we would partition race, gender and nerd as if they were distinct things...All human beings are this combination of experiences and ideologies. […] Everybody’s get some nerd in them. But the idea that, somehow, being a nerd is separate from one’s religious or moral or political beliefs is strange to me. We all bring everything to our decision-making on a daily basis.”
    • Fusion.net reported on the success of various actor-led charity campaigns. "Padalecki’s campaign is the latest example of a burgeoning form of celebrity activism—one inextricably intertwined with social media and the nerdiest brand of superfandom. The new activism is kicked off by a star—in this case, the lead of a show that has a massive following on Tumblr—but powered by his admirers. (Incidentally, all examples involve male stars and their largely female fan bases.) The star, in turn, interacts with fans about the campaign, energizing the cause. Everyone feels good knowing they’re fighting for the same thing."

    • The EFF reported on Japanese fans and organizations protesting the terms of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). "In addition to opposing lengthy copyright terms, the anime and fan-art community are also concerned about the TPP's criminal enforcement provisions. There is a particular section that says that 'competent authorities may act upon their own initiative to initiate a legal action without the need for a formal complaint' by the copyright holder. The fear is that this would lead to a major crackdown on derivative works, including written or drawn fan fiction, recorded music covers of songs, or cosplayers, who may upload photos of themselves dressed as characters."
    • Le Devoir.com wrote about the origins of fanfiction. "To understand the phenomenon of fanfiction...begin by remixing the famous list of Daniel Pennac's "The Rights of the Reader," which will become those of "the consumer." Literature becomes just a commodity, and it's permissible to do whatever we want. From one chapter to another, the reader is free to react, to have equal exchanges with the author, to make special demands, or even to write his own fanfiction." (Article in French).
    • lesen.net focused more on legal issues than the rights of the author. "The law is also problematic when it comes to the inventions of fanfic writers. There are stories where, in addition to well-known people, original characters occur in crossover stories which combine different book universes. Behind the new characters and the stories themselves are original, but unprotected, ideas. Original characters outside of the accepted world in principle belong to the rights-holders of the (story's) world. Meanwhile, within the fanfiction community virtually all characters and plots can be easily transferred and plagiarized." (Article in German).
    • The Washington Post also discussed appropriation in art using a variety of different examples. "There are no perfect, lawyerly answers to this. But general rules apply: The artist must add something — an idea, a nuance, a criticism — to the work he or she appropriates; it mustn’t be done simply to deceive; and no one should prosper by borrowing if it comes at the expense of another artist."

  • OTW Fannews: The Mirror Writers

    • A number of media articles have recently mentioned fanfiction in relation with the pro side of writing. One was in TIME where Rhys Griffiths discusses the continuation novel. Describing various works not written by the original authors, Rhys calls them an attempt "to obscure the act of literary ventriloquism that is occurring. The continuation novel differs from fan fiction (also enjoying a purple patch, which is unlikely to be a coincidence) chiefly in its ‘official’ nature. The books are commissioned by the deceased author’s estate, written with its approval, and marketed using both author’s brand associations."
    • A more direct example of 'literary ventriloquism' appeared in Flavorwire, which posted about fiction ghostwriting. "In this respect, both the YouTube megastar and the self-effacing ghostwriter are weirdly analogous to the writer of fanfiction and the self-published author, both of whom publishing has gone to great lengths to exploit in recent years. The now competing self-publishing models of Apple and Amazon point to an automated future...of a 'consumer' driven model that relies on upvoting." The article concludes that "The fact that the reader gets to choose 'precisely what she wants to read before any work goes to press,' neutralizes the dream of fiction...to alter what we think is possible. It becomes nothing but a magic mirror that reaffirms our prejudices."
    • It is writers' prejudices that concern Jordan West, who gives advice on diversifying characters in fanfiction. "As much diversity as there is in fan communities, it shouldn’t be difficult for people to find reflections of themselves in fic. Fan works aren’t restrained by the same conventions as mainstream media, so we can’t blame editors or producers for telling us what we’re allowed to write. The go-to feeling for reading a fic should be based on whether you like it, not gratitude that it even exists."
    • Games Radar profiled tie-in novelist Karen Traviss, who discussed both the freedoms and restrictions of being paid to write for a gaming franchise. "One guy told me he'd proudly showed the first novel to his family to demonstrate that the game that had kept him working almost 24/7 for the last couple of years was something that had an existence beyond gameplay, and that a novelist, an 'independent' arbiter of its worth in a way, had seen the same magic in it that he had. I thought that was very touching, and I don't use the word touching about the industry very often."

    • Writer Shawna Benson examined patterns of fandom growth and activity that she'd observed while moderating social media for The 100's Writers’ Room, as well as social media lessons learned. "Yes, we sell the US shows to other countries, but what do we do to accommodate those fanbases which spring up in other countries? Suddenly, the 'official' accounts feel less useful. They don’t get the CW in the UK, Australia, Brazil, France or Spain, or even Canada — the main countries which outside of the U.S. watch The 100. How do we accommodate those fans? The official accounts are restricted in this. Guess what? Writers’ rooms are not."
    • As part of International Fanworks Day, LiveJournal community Mari di Challenge interviewed OTW Translation Committee chairs Hele Braunstein and Priscilla del Cima about the committee's work (article in Italian). Both spoke about their fannish backgrounds, how AO3 fits together with the OTW and its other projects, how the organization sustains those projects financially and personnel-wise, what the OTW's vision of fandom is, and what changes might happen in the next five years.
    • Book review blogger Traci began a series of posts about the OTW. "I was recently reading an article and it was mentioned that media seems to 'see bronies as far more newsworthy that Organization for Transformative Works or the Vlogbrothers' Nerdfighter movement.' Now, I see a lot of things about Nerfighters, and the Green brothers in particular, but have not seen much on OTW outside of those in the know. So I decided to fangirl all over one of my favorite organizations for a post. Then I realized that I would need at least a couple posts to fully share my love and appreciation."
    • The Verge's Entertainment Editor Emily Yoshida discussed her discovery of fanfiction on the StarWarsChicks.com posting board. "One of the first things I was drawn to besides the message board was...The Library, it was a fanfic archive of the stories everyone in the community had written." She was asked to speculate about why fanfic writers seemed to be mostly by female writers. She suggested that the medium of writing was better suited to women. "It's non-visual, it takes a long time to read somebody's whole novel...and that's the payoff is this expectation and this waiting and this buildup...but it gets that same kind of following and addictive aspect to it."

    Ania tarafından hazırlanan, cosplay, metinsel ve görsel sanatlar gibi çeşitli hayran eserlerine sahip afiş

    Zaman geldi! Bugün her türlü hayran eserinin kutlaması yapılan yıllık Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü’nün ilki. Aşağıda OTW’nin (Transformatif Eserler Derneği) sponsorloğunu yapan ya da OTW ile bağlantısı bulunan bazı şeylerin listesi var ancak bize yorumlar kısmında bildiğiniz başka olay ya da etkinlik varsa bildirirseniz biz de duyurabiliriz.

    1. #IFDrabble adlı bir kısa hayran eseri meydan okuması düzenliyoruz. Tabletinizi, dizüstü bilgisayarınızı ya da telefonunuzu alın ve hayran eserlerini kutlamak için en fazla 100 kelime yazın! (Neden 100 kelime?)

      En sevdiğiniz karakter—ya da en sevdiğiniz çift—neye hayranlık duyuyor?

      • Tony Stark gizlice Transformers hayran filmlerini izliyor—ve seviyor—mu?
      • Athos, Aramis/Porthos çiftini destekliyor mu?
      • Shinee üyeleri Final Fantasy karakterlerinin cosplayini yapıyorlar mı?

      Ancak meydan okumamız sadece yazmak üzerine değil — meydan okuma için bir drawble (resimli kısa hikaye), kısa bir video, sesli bir eser ya da farklı formatta bir eser de gönderebilirsiniz. Kutlamaların bir parçası olarak bugün gönderin.

      Bulmamıza ve paylaşmamıza yardım edin — tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth ya da neredeyseniz orada #IFDrabble etiketiyle paylaşın. (Ve eğer Archive of Our Own – AO3’te (Kendimize Ait Bir Arşiv) paylaşırsanız, Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü 2015 etiketiyle paylaşın.)

      Uygunsuz içerik kullanmazsanız biz de duyurabiliriz!

    2. Geribildirim Festivali: Hayran eserleri yaratan ve paylaşan herkes, onları beğenen insanların düşüncelerini duymayı sever. Geribildirim bıraktığınız eserlerin linkini yorum olarak bırakarak siz de katılın. Bu şekilde hayran eserlerinde sevdiğiniz şeyleri paylaşabilir ve başkalarını da geribildirim bırakmaya yönlendirebilirsiniz.
    3. 8 Şubat’ta yazarlar Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me ve Racheline Maltese ile birlikte"Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (Hayran Eserleri Neden Kutlanmalı) üzerine canlı sohbet etkinliği yaptık. Bütün bu yazarlar hayran kurgusu yazarak başladı ve daha sonra eserleri basıldı—ve hala hayran eserleri içinde yer alıyorlar. Panelistler moderatör Francesca Coppa ile birlikte her türlü hayran eserinin değerini ve önemini tartıştı. Eğer kaçırdıysanız hala transkripti okuyabilirsiniz.

    Decembers förhandstitt på International Fanworks Day

    Dagen är kommen! Idag är den första årliga Internationella dagen för verk av fans, en dag då vi hyllar fans och alla deras verk. En lista följer nedan på lite olika saker som OTW (Organisationen för Transformativa Verk) sponsrar eller är kopplade till. Vi vill gärna att du lämnar en kommentar och berättar för oss om andra händelser eller saker du vet om inför dagen så att vi kan ge dig PR.

    1. Vi står värd för en utmaning för korta verk, #IFDrabble. Sätt på din platta, din laptop eller din smartphone och skriv upp till 100 ord som hyllar verk av fans! (Varför 100 ord?)

      Vad är din favoritkaraktär – eller ditt favoritpar – ett fan av?

      • Tittar Tony Stark i hemlighet på – och älskar – fanfilmer för Transformers?
      • Vill Athos para ihop Aramis och Porthos?
      • Klär medlemmarna i Shiree ut sig i cosplay som Final Fantasy-karaktärer?

      Men vår utmaning går inte bara ut på att skriva – du kan göra en drawble, en kort video, ljudfil eller något annat format till utmaningen istället. Bara lägg upp det idag som en del av hyllningen.

      Hjälp oss hitta den och dela den — tagga den med #IFDrabble på tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, eller varhelst du har din fandomaktivitet. (Och om du lägger upp den på Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Vårt Eget Arkiv), tagga den med International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Håll det någorlunda barntillåtet så kanske vi ger dig extra PR!

    2. Feedback-Fest: Alla som skapar och delar verk av fans älskar att höra av personerna som haft glädje av dem, så vi står värd för en Feedback-fest för att hylla verken vi älskar. Delta genom att lämna en kommentar här med en länk till verk som du har lämnat feedback på. På det sättet kan du dela det du älskar i verk av fans, samtidigt som du uppmundrar även andra att lämna feedback.
    3. 8 februari hade vi en chatt vid namn "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (“Varför verk av fans bör hyllas”), med författarna Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, och Racheline Maltese. Alla dessa författare började sin karriär med att skriva fanfiction och har gått vidare till att publicera professionella verk – och de deltar fortfarande i fandom. Tillsammans med moderatorn Francesca Coppa diskuterade panelen hur värdefulla och viktiga alla sorters verk av fans är. Om du missade det kan du fortfarande läsa chattloggen.
    4. Andra har också pratat om Internationella dagen för verk av fans. Här är några ställen där du kan läsa och höra om det:

    Vi känner också till följande hyllningar bland fans:

    ¡Llegó el momento! Hoy es nuestro primer Día Internacional de Obras de Fans (IFD por sus siglas en inglés), un día para celebrar las obras de fans de todo tipo. A continuación mencionamos algunas de las cosas que la OTW (Organización para las Obras Transformativas) está patrocinando o con las que se encuentra conectada. Nos gustaría que nos hicieras saber, en los comentarios, acerca de otros eventos y actividades de las que estés informandx para poder mencionarlos.

    1. Estamos llevando a cabo un reto de obras cortas de fans, #IFDrabble. Saca tu tablet, laptop o tu móvil, y ¡escribe hasta 100 palabras para celebrar las obras escritas por fans! (¿Por qué 100 palabras? [NT: en inglés])

      ¿Con qué tipo de obras fandomeras se emociona tu personaje favorito —o tu pareja favorita?

      • ¿Acaso Tony Stark ve —y ama— en secreto las peliculas hechas por fans sobre Transformers?
      • ¿Le gusta a Athos el ship Aramis/Porthos?
      • ¿Quizá los miembros de Shinee realizan cosplay de personajes de Final Fantasy?

      Nuestro reto no es solo para obras escritas; también puedes enviar un drawble[NT: en inglés], un video corto, un audio o una obra corta en otro formato. Solo publícalo hoy como parte del día de la celebración.

      Ayúdanos a encontrarlas y compartirlas — etiqueta la obra con #IFDrabble en tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, o donde quiera que seas fan! (Y si publicas en Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Un Archivo Propio), etiqueta tu obra con International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Mantenlo apto para todo público, y con suerte ¡te promocionamos!

    2. Festival de Comentarios: A todo quien crea y comparte obras le encanta recibir comentarios de la gente que las disfrutó, por lo cual estamos realizando un Festival de Comentarios para celebrar las obras de las que nos enamoramos. Para participar, deja aquí tu comentario con un enlace a las obras en las que has dejado comentarios.

    Baner autorstwa Ani przedstawiający twórczość fanowską, włączając w to cosplay, tekst i inne sztuki wizualne

    To już dziś! Pierwszy Międzynarodowy Dzień Twórczości Fanowskiej (IFD), dzień by świętować wszelkiego typu prace tworzone przez fanów. Poniżej znajdziecie kilka akcji, które OTW (Organizacja na rzecz Twórczości Przeobrażonej) sponsoruje lub jest z nimi związana. Dajcie nam znać w komentarzach o innych wydarzeniach lub działaniach z okazji tego dnia, a my się nimi podzielimy z innymi.

    1. Będziemy gospodarzami challengu dotyczącego krótkich prac, #IFDrabble. Wyciągnij swój tablet, komputer lub telefon i napisz do stu słów, by uczcić twórczość fanowską! (Dlaczego 100 słów?)

      Czego twój ulubiony bohater jest fanem?

      • Czy Tony Stark w tajemnicy ogląda (i kocha) stworzone przez fanów filmy Transformers?
      • Czy Athos shipuje Aramis/Porthos?
      • Czy członkowie Shinee robią cosplay bohaterów Final Fantasy?

      Nasz challenge nie jest tylko dla piszących — możesz też stworzyć drawble, krótki vid, pracę audio lub w innym formacie. Opublikuj je dziś, jako część swięta.

      Pomóż nam znaleźć i podzielić się pracami — otaguj je #IFDrabble na tumblrze, Facebooku, Dreamwidth, lub gdziekolwiek chcesz. (I jeśli opublikujesz je w Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Naszym Własnym Archiwum), otaguj je jako International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Jeśli twoja praca będzie safe for work (odpowiednia dla każdej grupy wiekowej), możemy podzielić się nią z innymi!

    2. Feedback Fest: Każdy kto tworzy i dzieli się swoimi pracami lubi usłyszeć komentarze od osób, którym się one podobały. Dlatego organizujemy Feedback Fest, by uczcić prace, które kochamy. Dodaj komentarz do tego wpisu z linkiem do skomentowanej przez ciebie pracy. W ten sposób możesz podzielić się tym co kochasz w pracach fanowskich, a jednocześnie zachęcić innych by też je skomentowali.
    3. Zostaw komentarz dla U.S. Copyright Office: OTW jest tylko jedną z wielu organizacji, która wnosi o wprowadzenie na stałe poprawek do DMCA tak by fani mogli tworzyć i dzielić się swoją twórczością. Podziel się swoją historią o tym, dlaczego prawo do remiksowania materiałów multimedialnych jest ważne. (The Copyright Office opublikuje wszystkie komentarze na swojej stronie.)
    4. 8 lutego mieliśmy okazję porozmawiać na temat "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (Dlaczego twórczość fanowska powinna być świętowana) z takimi autorkami jak Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me i Racheline Maltese. Wszystkie z nich zaczynały jako pisarki fanfiction, a następnie zaczęły publikować profesjonalnie — i wciąż biorą udział w tworzeniu prac fanowskich. Panel moderowała Francesca Coppa, a uczestniczki dyskutowały na temat wartości i znaczenia wszelkiego typu twórczości fanowskiej. Dla tych, którzy nie mogli wziąć udziału, przygotowaliśmy transkrypt.
    5. Inni ludzie też rozmawiają na temat Międzynarodowego Dnia Twórczości Fanowskiej. Oto kilka miejsc, gdzie możesz o nim przeczytać:

    Wiemy też o następujących działaniach fanów:

    Daj nam znać o innych miejscach, gdzie świętowany jest Międzynarodowy Dzień Twórczości Fanowskiej!

    Journée Internationale pour les Œuvres Aficionados

    Elle est là! Aujourd’hui est la première journée internationale des oeuvres aficionados annuelle, un jour pour célébrer tous types d’oeuvres aficionados. Vous trouverez ci-dessous plusieurs événements sponsorisés par, ou connectés à l’OTW (Organisation pour Oeuvres Transformatives), mais nous aimerions aussi savoir, dans les commentaires, si vous êtes au courant d’autres événements et actions pour que nous puissions les signaler à tout le monde.

    1. Nous hébergeons un défi d’oeuvres aficionados courtes, #IFDrabble. Sortez votre tablette, votre ordinateur portable ou votre téléphone et écrivez un maximum de 100 mots pour célébrer les œuvres aficionados! (Pourquoi 100 mots?)

      Qu'est-ce que votre personnage préféré — ou votre couple favori — préfère en terme de fandoms?

      • Est-ce que Tony Stark regarde — et adore — secrètement les films aficionados tirés de Transformers?
      • Est-ce que Athos apprécie le couple Aramis/Porthos?
      • Est-ce que les membres de Shinee font des cosplay des personnages de Final Fantasy?

      Mais notre défi n'est pas exclusivement un défi d'écriture — vous pouvez aussi présenter un drawble (croquis), une courte vidéo, un audio ou un autre format. Vous n’avez qu’à le poster aujourd’hui dans le cadre de la journée.

      Aidez-nous à les trouver et les partager! Mettez l'étiquette #IFDrabble sur tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, ou où que vous vouliez! (Et si vous l’affichez sur Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Notre Propre Archive), utilisez le tag International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Gardez-le tout public et nous ferons passer le mot!

    2. Fête des commentaires: Toutes les personnes qui créent et partagent des oeuvres aficionados aiment entendre les réactions des personnes qui les ont appréciées. Par conséquent, dans notre publication du 15 février célébrant la Journée Internationale des Oeuvres Aficionados, nous demanderons aux fans de partager les liens des oeuvres aficionados sur lesquelles ils/elles ont laissé des commentaires. De cette façon, chaque personne pourra partager ce qu’elle aime des oeuvres aficionados tout en encourageant les autres à laisser leurs impressions aussi.
    3. Le 8 février, nous avons organisé un chat live ayant pour thème “Pourquoi les oeuvres aficionados doivent-elles être célébrées?” avec les auteures Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, and Racheline Maltese. Toutes ces auteures ont commencé par écrire des fanfictions et ont réussi à publier des oeuvres dans un cadre professionnel—et participent toujours à l’écriture d’oeuvres aficionados. Avec la modératrice Francesca Coppa, elles ont discuté la valeur et de l’importance de tous les types d’oeuvres aficionados. Si vous n’avez pas eu la chance d’y assister, vous pouvez toujours lire la transcription.
    4. D’autres personnes ont mentionné la journée internationale des oeuvres aficionados. Voici quelques endroits pour lire et écouter à propos de ce sujet:

    Nous sommes aussi au courant des célébrations aficionados suivantes:

    • Les fans indonésiens qui utilisent l’AO3 ont mis en place une collection pour le défi #IFDrabble. Ils ont aussi un groupe Facebook, n’hésitez pas à y jeter un coup d’oeil!
    • La communauté de fans italiens maridichallenge a mis en place leur propre défi, avec une promesse d’offrir à tous les participants un striscioline (bannière ressemblant à un badge) spécial dans le thème de la journée.
    • Le fandom Tolkien est bien représenté! Participez aux activités à Silmarillion Writers' Guild, à Many Paths to Tread/LotRGenfic Community, et à Library of Moria.
