The Organization for Tranformative Works, the good people who bring us AO3 (kudos to them!), are throwing a party celebrating fandom!

That sounds right up our word-loving alley, doesn't it?  :).

The first-ever International Fanworks Day is almost exactly a month out from now: February 15, 2015.  Here's how you can participate...


- Take part in the AO3 Drabble Challenge. Details on this are TBD and the AO3 folks should be sharing more on it soon. It struck me as a great way we could celebrate the first ever Fandom Day together, and also drive some words for our January and February counts!  I'll know I'll definitely write some drabbles specifically for this - if you are up for it, too, comment below and we can come up with a mini-challenge. Like, maybe we all base our drabbles off of one shared pool of prompts?  Hey, who knows, maybe it'll bring us a few new members if people see our work on the drabble challenge.

- Day of: Tag a fanwork to the International Fanworks Day tag on 2/15.

- Show that you are someone who cares and shares: AO3 will put up a post on 2/15, where you can link to five fanworks on which you've left comments. Show that you care enough to share your thoughts with the artists and writers who post fandom works.

I'll put up a second post/reminder/call for drabbles once there's more released about the challenge!

I'd be more willing to try and do something here.

I don't have an AO3 account and have never really had the urge to explore the place. /waving cane at you crazy kids

Ha. :}.

I'm sure they'd be glad to see a fandom day celebrated wherever people prefer. Maybe we can post our drabbles here, and also have a tag made on our group AO3 page for it - I'll ask K and H about that.

Every once in a while I'm BAMF. Not often, but every once in a while.

Well, I think you're pretty damn BAMF around the clock, so there! :)

This sounds great! I love AO3 and I love the idea of an international fanworks day. I'd definitely participate in a mini-challenge of sorts!

Coolness! Feel free to come up with a few prompt suggestions to have ready. I'll do the same, and I'll post again when they put out more specifics on the Drabble Challenge.

Ah thanks for posting this, I think it's a great idea for AO3 and a great idea for us to join in as a community.

I think pooling a load of prompts together would be great, especially if it's for drabbles, people might be able to grab several for their various fandoms :D

Great! I think it's very smart of them to make it a drabble challenge - seems like a reasonable commitment level. And drabbles can be so much fun. It'll be a nice change from the long stories I seem to get myself wrapped up in lately!!

I would think they'll post more about it one month out, in a couple of days. Will put up another post here with a call for prompts when they do!

Does AO3 allow artwork yet?

It's a fanwork.. LOL I'll do artwork here!

Yes! They sure do. I know I've posted still images - and I've seen other post vids. That'd be great, 'cause the event is definitely for all fan artists and all types of fan work! :)

Awesome! I should be able to participate, even with a couple of class papers due at the same time. 😄
