    Tag Wrangling Volunteers

  • OTW Fannews: Coming Together

    • 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."

    Help out a researcher!

    This month we have received a request for research participation from Jean Drzyzgula at St. Mary's College of Maryland. As part of her thesis for an undergraduate degree, she is conducting research on *fandom and identity exploration* under the oversight of Dr. Iris Ford.

    The purpose of this research study is threefold: to understand the role participation in media fandoms has on the development of personal identities for young MOGAI (LGBT, Queer) people; to understand the extent to which participation in media fandoms has impacted participants’ identities; and to understand how these trends impact individuals participating in them.

    Note that survey participants must be at least 18 years of age. You can find the survey online; a consent agreement is included on the main page.

    Contact information is jadrzyzgula [at] smcm [dot] edu and Icford [at] smcm [dot] edu.

    The final paper and any future works will be shared with the community, and some limited portions of the data set collected may be available depending on if it is judged to not impact confidentiality (and with advisor approval).

    If you have requests for research participation, please view our policy for inclusion at our website.


    The OTW encourages anyone to submit an event that's not already listed, and to check out the calendar throughout the year!

    • Public radio station WBEZ announced they would be producing fan-written minisodes of its historical drama podcast PleasureTown. "In minisode 1, we meet Esther, the town seamstress, who spins a yarn about her lost heritage and life under the watchful eye of the menacing Miz Janine. The PleasureTown legend continues... this time, at the hands of its fans."
    • Kasterborous reposted some Doctor Who Crossover fan art. "One of the greatest things about the Doctor Who fandom is their passion for all things Who and their propensity for wanting to mashup the Doctor with just about any other programme or intellectual property out there. From SuperWhoLock to Eleven and the Ponds meeting Capt. Picard and the crew of the Enterprise, it would seem there really isn’t anywhere in time and space the TARDIS can’t show up."
    • While an article at D magazine regrettably elevated fan films over fanfiction, it pointed to another Whovian fanwork, Doctor Who: The Soldier Stories, as part of an article on the “Fan Days” festivities in Dallas, Texas. "Comic books and entertainment in the sci-fi/fantasy wheelhouse tend to get viewed as escapist fare, a chance to get away from some of the more dull or soul-crushing aspects of the real world. That may be true to a degree, but it ignores the community and connections that form from an appreciation of the things that get discussed at events like, say, Dallas Comic Con. It’s a chance for the fans to let their freak flags fly proudly."
    • Fanfic writers got a little more credit in an article at Publishers Weekly which included them in A Look Ahead to Self-Publishing in 2015. "Gardner says she expects to see 'more real person fan fiction and stories about breaking news in the coming year.' Also, while genre fiction remains strong, she’s seeing a change in subject matter—'sexy cowboys' are giving way to sexy MMA fighters in the romance genre, and jinns are taking over from vampires as common protagonists in the fantasy realm."

    • The release of Fifty Shades of Grey in theaters led to a wave of stories connecting it to its fanfiction roots. A post at MoviePilot though, focused on fan art for the fandom.
    • Vodkaster asked if the movie was about what women wanted or what fans wanted (article in French). Writer Johanna Ruiz cited surveys showing that literature was a particularly female format, and stated that women were embracing writing online to create their own literature. She further suggested that there's a deficiency in representing women's desire in commercial production which has led to its expression within fanfiction.
    • Independent focused on the new markets reached by the book, while overlooking fandom entirely. "While there are all sorts of negative connotations around erotic fiction, what the mainstream publishing world never really reckoned on was the fact that women actually wanted to read these books.... Somehow EL James and a respectable publisher managed to introduce pornography to a demographic that are ordinarily notoriously porn-proof. This was soft porn for suburbia, erotica made accessible, not to mention acceptable, through its coverage in the respectable pages of the Sunday supplements."
    • Vanity Fair renewed claims that literary agents are searching fan fiction sites for the next Fifty Shades of Grey. "Her pitch to publishing houses was forthright about the book’s origins, but she didn’t lead with its fanfic roots, admitting, 'In many ways the way in which you enter publishing determines where you will be.' At the time, there was also a sense that the Fifty Shades effect wouldn’t have staying power. 'There were definitely editors that said they thought [fan] fic was over, which I think is funny in retrospect because that was 2012, and how many deals have there been since then?'"

    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:

    ¡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. De esta forma, puedes compartir lo que te encanta de las obras de fans, animando al mismo tiempo a otrxs a dejar comentarios.
    3. El 08 de febrero se llevó a cabo el chat en vivo acerca de “¿Por qué deben celebrarse las obras de fans?”, con las autoras Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, y Racheline Maltese. Todas estas autoras comenzaron escribiendo fanfiction y ahora publican profesionalmente —y aún participan en obras de fans. Junto con la moderadora Francesca Coppa, las panelistas discutieron el valor y la importancia de todo tipo de obras de fans. Si te lo perdiste, aún puedes leer la transcripción.

    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.
