  • OTW Fannews: Speaking Out for Fandom

    • While quite a few articles in the media continue to portray fanwork creators as somehow abnormal, even while acknowledging their part within a larger remix culture of popular entertainment, others set fandom more positively in this cultural environment. This support has come from fans and entertainers alike.
    • The 'Not Another Teen Wolf Podcast' interviewed actress Eaddy Mays about fanfiction. "'First and foremost, the media portrayal of fanfiction infuriates me. It’s immature, among many things. It’s bullying. And it should be illegal, frankly." Mays proved herself an it-getter. “It’s when she’s talking about a book the Sterek Campaign sent her about the popular slash ship that you can see exactly how much she takes this issue to heart. She picks it up to make a point, flipping it over and noticing something written on the back for the first time...'It says, ‘Made with love.'' She has to pause, the emotion evident in her voice. 'Can you wrap it up better than that? I don’t think so. That’s it. It’s made with love. So why would you cast any dispersion on that?'”
    • Not all actors seem as in touch with slash fanworks. The Mary Sue focused on contrasting comments made by Benedict Cumberbatch and Orlando Jones in the same week, with Jones saying "'I get it—it’s another way to go but it’s no less valid than what we’re doing and it’s certainly interesting, so I really get a kick out of that. To read fan fiction and to see fan art and to watch other people’s artistry paint different colors on top of what we’re doing… how can you be mad at that? That’s just completely awesome!'"
    • At Bustle, Emma Lord wrote about getting over her embarrassment with fanfic and countering common arguments. "[W]hen did any form of writing get deemed 'lazy'? We’re actively creating something, whether or not it will be widely consumed or appreciated. We’re testing ourselves as writers all the time, trying to see if we can keep the original author’s characters true to themselves, or if we can find ways to surprise and intrigue readers who are into the same fandoms we are. That is the polar opposite of lazy!"

  • OTW Fannews: Women's Experiences In Fandom

    OTW Fannews Banner Women's Experiences in Fandom

    • Comic Book Resources reported on a NYCC panel about female fandom in which Kelly Sue DeConnick said, "'I think that there's an important thing to remember too, that what you're seeing now, the influx of female readership and female creators is not a revolution, it's a restoration...Back in the '30s and '40s there was a girls' magazine that had a distribution of 300,000 copies per month and it was comics... [In the decades since] women were discouraged, dissuaded, made unwelcome, and now for a plethora of reasons, women are returning...There are enough comics for everyone...Say it with me now: equality is not a loss.'"
    • In another panel at New York Comic Con, on harassment and assault, the "crowd was greeted with some sobering statistics...25% of women at cons have reported being sexually harassed, 13% report receiving unwanted, inappropriate comments, and 8% of all attendees have been groped or outright assaulted or raped." This sheds light on the post in The Awl discussing rape charges in web celebrity fandoms, which speculated on the thinking of perpetrators. "Internet celebrity is just another opportunity, like management or teaching or parenthood, to assert power over victims in new and profound ways."
    • Blogger ladyloveandjustice, wrote about why the Mary Sue is a sexist concept. "[O]ne of the CONTROVERSIES listed on the TV Tropes page is if a male sue is even possible. That’s right, it’s impossible to have an idealizied male character. Men are already the ideal. In our culture, male tends to be the default. Women take on the distaff parts. 'Him' and 'mankind' are what humanity are, 'her' and 'womankind' are secondary. Yet this isn’t true for Mary Sue as a term. That name was created first."
    • An article in The Guardian cited fanfic on AO3 and Tumblr as places where teenage girls are the creators of sexual fiction. "'There is a lot of PWP (short for ‘porn without plot’ or ‘plot, what plot?’) out there,' 23-year-old Julia Schnorrer said. 'However, every sex scene in fanfic always has a narrative, since it is integrated in a realm of existing characters. Characters are well-rounded human beings who also have a sex life – not off stage but right in the middle of it. Most fanfic writers are women, and I think it derives from the male gaze that dominates visual pornography.' In fan fiction communities, and on sites such as Tumblr, all types of sexuality are represented – as well as the absence of a sex drive entirely."

    OTW Fannews Banner What's a Fanwork

    • NPR's "Pop Culture Happy Hour" featured a look at fanfiction with "resident fan-fiction expert, Petra Mayer" who was asked for some recs. Mayer herself reviewed After, and a discussion ensued among listeners as to whether or not RPF qualified as a fanwork. (Partial transcript available).
    • The Daily Dot featured a video it qualified as a fanwork, a genderswap Ghostbusters. "A bunch of middle schoolers put together a shot-for-shot remake of the original Ghostbusters trailer and managed to make it even better. This time around, boys are playing the roles of Dana and Janine, while the girls have the Ghostbusters and Louis Tully covered, complete with self-aware visual effects and gags."
    • Meanwhile the play Badfic Love focused on fanfic writing groups and their personal dramas. "Director Nick Thornton says this production shows just how much talent WMU theatre graduates have. Thorton says it also encourages artists to keep creating. 'We have so much power and we can go out into the world and create our own reality...In a world full of things that are saying, you know: stay at home, don’t do anything, tear down other people’s work. We’re kind of saying, you know, what is your world? What are you going to do with it?'”
    • Jezebel's interview about mpreg with the male mod of an mpreg site focused more on the interest in the topic than its history in fanworks. "Some of our writers focus solely on the birth while others only gloss over it. Some people love it, some people hate it—much like mpreg itself. The positive and negative aspects of pregnancy are usually always included, and many of our artists are sure to include them in their pieces. Pregnancy is made up of so many emotions, symptoms, and milestones. These are part of the visceral experience pregnancy offers, and our members love talking/drawing/writing about it."

  • OTW Fannews: Social Media for Fans

    By Kiri Van Santen on Saturday, 15 November 2014 - 5:36pm
    Message type:
    • The Wall Street Journal wrote about different fandom activities on different social media platforms. "[T]he CW is trying just about everything in social media. Interestingly, once its fans tell the network which platform they want to use to interact with their favorite shows, the network leans in hard. 'We attack all the social media,' said Rick Haskins, the CW’s executive vice president of marketing and digital programs. 'Very, very quickly, the consumer says ‘this is the social platform we like [this particular show] on.’ When we see upticks, that’s when we move in quickly.'"
    • At The Daily Dot, S.E. Smith pointed out that not all fandoms embrace social media. "It seems to run counterintuitive to the idea that tech determines the pulse of popular culture. The NCIS website is crude and clunky, the show's Twitter is an anemic promotions vehicle, and the Internet doesn’t exactly come alive with fans livetweeting NCIS on Tuesday nights. The Internet isn’t interested in it for all the reasons that it appeals to vast numbers of viewers, illustrating that what the Internet wants from television is not necessarily what the Nielsen viewer wants."
    • The Asahi Shimbun discussed the importance of the decision to go royalty-free with vocaloid Hatsune Miku. "Developer Crypton Future Media Inc. released guidelines that acknowledge the creation of fan fictions for noncommercial purposes. To encourage collaborations between users, the company also set up Piapro, a social networking website where fans can post their songs and illustrations. 'It's meant to make creative efforts widespread without making users feel intimidated,' said Hiroyuki Ito, Crypton Future Media president."
    • Wattpad continues to pursue amateur authors and to focus on readers. In a discussion with The International Business Times, the inline commenting feature is mentioned. "This adds another dimension to the social interactions on Wattpad. With Inline Commenting, readers can comment on specific words, sentences and paragraphs of a story...Not only does Inline Commenting provide valuable and in-context feedback to writers, but it creates a new social experience for readers. It’s almost like they're reading alongside their friends and they can exclaim, commiserate, and react as the story unfolds."

    OTW Fannews Banner Fitting in Fanworks

    • Blogger Marie Larsen wrote about her daughter's classroom success in writing fanfiction. "The story is a Transformers fan fiction piece, long enough and worthy enough of being an animated episode." But she was "concerned of its fan fiction style. Recently, I read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, where the main character received a failing grade from a teacher that didn't find any value in fan fiction. I wasn't sure how my girl's teacher would receive this piece." However, her story had a happy ending. "To praise her in front of her peers, to give her the only A+ out of all those very bright, accelerated students was a self-esteem booster I could never give her."
    • Dorkly featured 15 People Who Turned Wheelchairs Into Amazing Cosplay, including the Black Knight, Superman, Wall-E and General Loveless.
    • Engadget was one among many that featured a remake of The Empire Strikes Back utilizing fan clips. More than 480 fan-made segments were picked from over 1,500 submissions to make The Empire Strikes Back Uncut. The result included a mash-up of styles including live action, animation, and stop-motion.
    • The Blacktown Sun wrote about the fanfiction generated in a creative writing program. "Year 8 student Ashleigh's 27-chapter novel, Collision Course, was an extension of a fan fiction she wrote based on YouTube gamers Mitch and Jerome, known for their Minecraft reviews. 'I took the real people and twisted them to make characters that would fit the universe of the story,' she said." Meanwhile "Year 10 student Kate's 11,000-word novel The Fantastic Not-so-Real World of Samantha Colt balanced macabre, dark elements inspired by the Martin Scorsese film Shutter Island with bookish fantasy inspired by the film Inkheart."

  • OTW Fannews: IP From New to Old

    Message type:

    • A post at JD Supra focused on the way fair use is being seen in U.S. courts following a decision in Fox News Network, LLC v. TVEyes, Inc. "More broadly, decisions like TVEyes suggest that courts are moving away from viewing fair use as a narrowly-drawn exception to copyright holders’ exclusive rights in their works, to the view that fair use promotes the creation of transformative works and thus serves one of the goals of copyright law itself. The TVEyes opinion, which essentially presumed transformativeness of the work at the outset of the fair use analysis, suggests that the trend toward this broader view of the role of fair use continues to gain traction in the federal courts."
    • OTW legal staffer Heidi Tandy reported on a lawsuit against LiveJournal (LJ) that was thrown out of court. The company Marvix claimed copyright infringement when its photos were posted on the LJ community OhNoTheyDidnt. But Marvix failed to first file a DMCA takedown request, moving immediately to a lawsuit. "LiveJournal has done other sites, platforms, communities, fandomers, news sites and forums a great service by seeing this lawsuit through. Mavrix has a pattern of using a threat that sites owe it hundreds of thousands in damages if one of their users - or even they - post a single photograph owned by one of Mavrix's paparazzi."
    • In a column on intellectual property in India, Zoya Nafis wrote about trademark and fanfiction. "Intellectual Property Rights are granted with an objective that they shall promote innovation and encourage creators to create more. They act as an incentive to create the work. They should never be used to impede innovation. Fan Fictions are creations by amateur creators who if given opportunity might create something great in future; therefore a lenient and balanced approach must be taken towards them."
    • The copyright education project CopyMe released a third episode, focusing on the history of how copyright came to be. "On the one hand, history shows us that copyright was designed for control more than anything else and that the state got away with this for over two centuries. On the other hand, businesses always feared new technology and lobbied for state protection, with arguments about authors’ safety. These two sides have always lurked in copyright’s underbelly and, over the course of three more centuries, managed to erode all the public good that copyright was primarily designed to promote."

    Farklı rütbe ve statülerde insanlar arasındaki duygusal bağlara odaklanan çok fandomlu bir hayran kurgu ve çizim arşivi olan Boys in Chains, Archive of Our Own'a – AO3 (Kendimize Ait Bir Arşiv) taşınıyor. Arşiv, femslash ve genel eserlere de açık olduğunu vurgulamak için ismini Chains: The Powerfic Archive olarak değiştiriyor.

    Bu yazıda bulacaklarınız:

    Sitenin geçmişi

    Boys in Chains 2000 yılında erkek/erkek slash köle hikayeleri arşivi olarak açıldı. Zamanla içeriğini genişleterek her türlü güç eşitsizliğini konu eden eserler için bir arşiv halini aldı. Bu eserler arasında köle hikayeleri, cezaevi hikayeleri, fahişe hikayeleri ve BDSM temalı hikayeler vardı. Arşiv hem hayran kurgu, hem orijinal kurgu kabul ederek; erkek/erkek slash, kadın/kadın slash, genel ve heteroseksüel hikayeler ile yaoi, yuri ve gey/lezbiyen kurgu da barındırdı. Kurgunun yanı sıra benzer temalara odaklanan bir de hayran çizimleri galerisi vardı.

    Chains: The Powerfic Archive AO3'te orijinal arşivde yer alan tüm eserleri barındıran ayrı, aranabilir bir koleksiyon olarak kendi kimliğine sahip olacak. Boys in Chains'ten AO3 koleksiyonuna eser aktarımına Aralık 2014'te başlayacağız.

    Bu bölümde sizin yardımınıza ihtiyacımız olacak!

    Yaratıcı adına aktarılan tüm eserlerin özet bölümünde yaratıcının adı belirtilecek ve ileride eserin sahiplenilmesi için ne yapılması gerektiğini anlatan bir not eklenecektir. Eserlerin aktarımını yaptıkça eserle ilişkili e-posta adresine bildirim göndereceğiz.

    Aktarılan eserlerin hepsi sadece giriş yapan AO3 kullanıcıları tarafından görüntülenecek şekilde ayarlanacaktır. Eserlerinizi üzerinize aldıktan sonra isterseniz herkese açabilirsiniz. Sahiplenilmeyen tüm eserler 3 ay sonunda tüm ziyaretçilere açılacaktır.

    Boys in Chains, un archivo de múltiples fandoms tanto para ficción como arte, con un enfoque en las historias sobre vínculos emocionales entre gente de diferentes rangos o estatus, se está mudando al Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Un Archivo Propio). Y para reflejar su apertura al femslash y al gen, su nombre cambiará a Chains: The Powerfic Archive.

    En esta publicación encontrarás:

    Explicación de los antecedentes

    Boys in Chains abrió en el año 2000 como un archivo de slash slavefic (ficción sobre esclavos). Más tarde expandió su contenido para convertirse en un archivo de obras que representan desigualdades de poder, entre ellas slavefic (ficción sobre esclavos), prisonfic (ficción sobre prisiones), hookerfic (ficción sobre trabajadorxs sexuales) y fics con temáticas BDSM. Aceptaba fanfics y obras originales en las categorías de slash m/m, slash f/f, gen, y het así como yaoi, yuri y ficción gay/lésbica. Contaba también con una galería de fanart representando temáticas similares.

    En el AO3, Chains: The Powerfic Archive será una colección separada con opción de búsqueda y tendrá su propia identidad para todas las obras que habían sido albergadas en el archivo original. Las obras de Boys in Chains comenzarán a ser importadas a la colección del AO3 a partir de Diciembre de 2014.

    ¿Qué significa para los creadores que tenían obras en Boys in Chains?

    ¡Aquí es donde necesitamos tu ayuda!

    1. Si tienes una cuenta en el AO3 y has publicado allí tus obras de Boys in Chains, por favor, comunícate con Open Doors (Puertas Abiertas) e infórmanos de tu(s) pseudónimo(s) en Boys in Chains y de tu dirección de correo electrónico para que tus obras no sean importadas.

  • В процессе: Мальчики в цепях/AO3 Добровольный бондаж

    Boys in Chains (Мальчики в цепях) – мультифандомный архив фикшена и арта, ориентированный на работы об эмоциональных связях людей разного служебного или социального положения, переезжает на Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Наш Архив). И, чтобы показать, что он открыт для фемслэша, гета и джена, меняет свое название на Chains: The Powerfic Archive (Цепи: архив работ, описывающих неравноправие власти).

    В этом посте:

    Немножко истории

    Boys in Chains (Мальчики в цепях) был создан в 2000 году как архив м/м слэш фиков о рабстве. Позже расширился и стал архивом работ, отражающих неравенство власти, например фики о рабстве, тюрьмах, проституции и БДСМ. Там можно было размещать фанфики и ориджиналы, таких типов как м/м слэш, ж/ж слэш, джен, гет, а также яой, юри и произведения о геях/лесбиянках. Вместе с литературой архив стал принимать и фанарт, иллюстрирующий эти темы.

    Архив был заморожен в 2005, но сопутствующие ему список рассылки и сообщество на LiveJournal продолжают свою деятельность.

    На АО3 Chains: The Powerfic Archive (Цепи: архив работ, описывающих неравноправие власти) будет отдельной коллекцией с функцией поиска и собственным обозначением для работ, переехавших с исходного архива. Мы начнем перемещать работы из Boys in Chains (Мальчики в цепях) в коллекцию AO3 в декабре 2014.

    Что делать авторам и артерам, чьи работы расположены на Boys in Chains (Мальчики в цепях)?

    Здесь нам нужна ваша помощь!

    1. Если вы зарегистрированы на АО3 и уже перенесли свои работы из Boys in Chains (Мальчики в цепях), пожалуйста, свяжитесь с Open Doors (Открытые Двери) с e-mail адресом(ами) и ником(ами), связанными с вашим(и) аккаунтом(ами) на Boys in Chains (Мальчики в цепях), чтобы мы знали, что ваши работы не нужно перемещать. (Вы можете добавить несколько работ сразу в новую коллекцию на AO3.)

    2. Если вы не зарегистрированы на АО3, но хотите собственный аккаунт, чтобы перенести работы самостоятельно, пожалуйста, свяжитесь с Open Doors (Открытые Двери) с вашим(и) ником(ами) на Boys in Chains (Мальчики в цепях) и e-mail адресом, на который хотите получить приглашение.

    3. Если вы НЕ хотите, чтобы ваши работы были перенесены, пожалуйста, свяжитесь с Open Doors (Открытые Двери) с e-mail адресом(ами) и ником(ами), связанными с вашим(и) аккаунтом(ами) на Boys in Chains (Мальчики в цепях), чтобы мы их не перемещали. (Если вы не против того, чтобы мы сохранили ваши работы, а фанаты могли насладиться ими, но не хотите, чтобы ваш ник был с ними связан, все равно сообщите нам, пожалуйста, вы можете отказаться от работ (автором будет указан не ваш ник, а orphan_account).

    Во всех работах, перенесенных от лица автора, в содержании будет указан ник автора и будет добавлено объяснение, как забрать права на работу в будущем. При перемещении мы будем присылать уведомление на e-mail адрес, связанный с работой.
    Все перемещенные работы будут видимы только для пользователей AO3. Забрав права на ваши работы, вы сможете сделать их видимыми для всех, если захотите. Все работы, права на которые не были забраны, станут видимыми для всех через 3 месяца после переезда.
