    Bàner creat per Ania per celebrar el Dia Internacional de les Obres de Fans, on es presenten diverses obres de fans, incloent-hi el cosplay, text i art visual.

    Com mencionarem el mes passat, l’OTW (Organització per a les Obres Transformatives) presentarà esdeveniments per al Dia Internacional de les obres de fans (IFD en anglès) una altra vegada aquets any.

    El 15 de Febrer, celebrarem el Dia Internacional de les obres de fans a tots els fusos horaris. Aquí baix tenim unes poques coses que l’OTW està patrocinant, però voldríem que ens digueres als comentaris, altres esdeveniments i activitats que conegues, perquè puguem fer-ne córrer la veu.

    1. Festival dels Comentaris: A tothom que crea i comparteix obres de fans li encanta sentir de la gent que n’han gaudit, així que presentem un Festival dels Comentaris per a celebrar les obres que estimem. Participa deixant un comentari a la publicació del Festival dels Comentaris entre el 10 i el 15 de febrer amb les vostres recomanacions o un enllaç a la vostra publicació en un altre lloc amb les vostres recomanacions. Comparteix allò que t’agrada sobre les obres de fans, mentre animes a altres a deixar comentaris també. Fins i tot podries guanyar un regal!
    2. Reptes d’obres de fans Curtes: Treu la teua taulera, el teu portàtil o el teu telèfon, i crea una obra de fan curta amb el següent tema:

      De què serien fans el teu personatge favorit o la teva parella favorita? Per exemple:

      • Què passa quan Hetalia's Axis Powers i les Allied Forces competeixen en The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim?
      • Kermit the Frog s’ha disfressat alguna vegada de Yoda?
      • Què passa quan els Avengers es prenen un descans de la guerra civil, i en lloc d’això dediquen una vesprada a cridar com fans sobre Hamilton?

      Publica el teu haiku, drabble, drawble, short vid, obra d’àudio, o un altre format el 15 de Febrer, i etiqueta-la amb #IFDShare al tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, o on siga que eres fan. I si la publiques a l’Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Un Arxiu Propi), etiqueta-la amb l’etiqueta International Fanworks Day 2016.

      Mantin-la en segura per a veure-la al treball, i podríem ferne córrer la veu!

    3. Què signifiquen les Obres de fans per a mí: En desembre, enviàrem una crida perquè contribuïreu amb una redacció sobre què significaven les obres de fans per a vosaltres. Distribuïrem publicacions convidades a través de les notícies de l’OTW entre ara i el 15 de Febrer amb alguns dels resultats. Però si havíeu perdut l’oportunitat de participar, #IFDShare també és per a meta! Deixa que la gent sàpiga com et sents i ajuda a propagar les celebracions per al Dia Internacional de les obres de fans.
    4. Activisme de Fans: el Comitè Legal de l’OTW ha treballat molt de temps per a protegir les obres de fan. Han demanat recentment històries de fans d’arreu del món sobre com l’avís de supressió està impactant el fàndom. Heu, o algú que coneixeu ha sigut objecte d’un avís de supressió? Què fereu amb ell? Com us vau sentir? Heu tingut una obra de fan pròpia eliminada o ha estat eliminada una obra que us agradava? Presenteu la informació que teniu fins al 28 de febrer. Ajuda a què l’OTW informe els governs del món sobre l’importància de les obres de fans per a vosaltres!
    5. Jocs i Xats de Fan: El mateix 15 de febrer presentarem un xat a la sala de xat per a Discussions Públiques de l’OTW a tots els fusos horaris. Uneix-te a nosaltres entre les 16:00 UTC el 14 de febrer i les 06:00 UTC el 16 de febrer per a compartir obres de fans, o jugar a jocs com ara concursos de preguntes o Cartes Contra l’Humanitat. Podríes, fins i tot, guanyar un premi!

    Ara que t’hem mostrat els nostres, mostra’ns els teus plans de fàndom per al IFD (International Fanworks Day), comentant aquí o enllaçant-nos a la teua publicación en un altre lloc!

  • OTW Fannews: Celebrations in Focus

    Fireworks overlaid with the text OTW Fannews Celebrations in Focus

    • Fandom in 2015 was more "out" than ever before, with increasingly insightful takes on it that questioned common assumptions and sought to educate the public (and not just through academia.) Some of the developments had to do with changes in the media itself, and some due to an understanding of its rewards to both the media, as well as everyday efforts.
    • Hypable noted how fans were likely to spend the year-end holidays. "The fact is, everyone has their own traditions, and if you’re a part of a fandom, these traditions could (and probably do) relate to your passion. If you’re looking for ideas on how to add some flare to your celebrations this holiday, here are some ideas from six different fandoms!"
    • For some people, as in The Burlington County Times the real celebration was discovering a new fannishness. "[W]hen 'Star Wars Episode VII' was announced, my sister almost cried with immense anticipation. I, on the other hand, wasn’t exceptionally fazed, but in the spirit of sisterhood, I agreed to attend a showing two days after the movie’s release. I hadn’t minded the original six films that I had been emphatically encouraged to watch as a child, and I knew that Laura would appreciate someone to whom she could fangirl.
      I had no idea that I would leave that theater shaking and screaming with joy over what is now my favorite movie. Somehow, I had been involuntarily indoctrinated into the 'Star Wars' cult, and I regret nothing."
    • While some fannish meetings turned pretty permanent other fannish developments were personal revelations. "One of the awesome things about burlesque is that even when mainstream media usually only shows a limited ideal of women’s bodies, burlesque embraces all bodies. Big or small, tall or short, fit or not so fit. I’ve found the whole thing to be a very body positive experience. When I perform, I don’t care if people see my cellulite. And you know what? They don’t care either. They care that I’m performing as The Joker, or Edward Elric, or a post-apocalyptic road warrior. They care that I’m funny. They care that I’m showing them a great time. When everyone is having a great time being geeky, that’s all that really matters."

  • OTW Fannews: Fandom Awakens & Stretches

    • New York magazine took the opportunity to point out what the release of a new Star Wars film really means and included some early numbers from AO3. "[I]f you have even passing knowledge of the internet you won't be surprised to hear that hundreds of authors and illustrators in the fan-fiction community are already hard at work asking tough questions, like, 'Yo, what if these two (or three) characters kissed?' But in a Star Wars universe with at least four major new roles, the key question is: Who are we most excited to read about boning?"
    • Birth Movies Death was stuck on the idea that we're in a remix culture where official and unofficial fanworks all co-exist. "The most interesting fanfic is the kind where the fan takes a property they love and says 'I don’t see myself in here, so I’m putting myself in it.' I don’t mean that in general Mary Sue terms, but social progress terms - making characters queer, introducing characters of color, bringing in characters of other backgrounds...when Lucasfilm finally hires a filmmaker who isn’t just a white guy who grew up on Star Wars is when we’ll truly be entering a truly new phase of the saga."
    • The Mary Sue considered the relative importance of fanon vs. canon. "This all seems to be part of a larger conversation that I’ve seen happening lately, across fandoms in genre fiction everywhere: how much should canon matter? How much should creators’ opinions matter? Can our own passion for what we believe the canon should be overpower what the 'truth' of the source material is? And does the 'truth' really matter, at that point? Can fandom bring about Death of the Author so effectively that we make our own 'truth'? Even referring to the canon as 'truth' here makes me squirm, because it suggests that fan-fiction and fan-art and fan interpretations are somehow false and therefore wrong … which they may be, according to the source material, but they feel true and so valid and so life-affirming to fans."
    • Meanwhile Upvoted discussed the continuity of fandom across generations. "An immigrant from Vietnam, Greenleaf’s electrician dad developed a love for science-fiction in America watching TV shows like Star Trek and Johnny Quest. Then he saw Star Wars in the theaters when it came out in 1977. 'Definitely seeing Star Wars was a big thing for him, but I think he kept it to himself'" Now, however, it's all in the open. "'Once he saw me bringing a lot of costumes home and making them, he got interested...He’d ask me, ‘Can I try it on? Can I wear it?’ I’ve taken him to a lot of character events and introduced him to a lot of people, and he’s really gotten into it.'”

    Make sure fanworks and events surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens don't get forgotten! Write about them in Fanlore! Contributions are welcome from all fans.

    • Tor.com discussed the appeal of fanwork exchanges and four factors that make them so special to participate in. "That’s the amazing thing about online fandom: It’s built on the notion of giving year-round: granting each other new stories in worlds in which the writers no longer roam; lending each other an ear when no one we know has read those books or watched those TV show; giving each other stories with the utter delight of not knowing what happens next."
    • Classicalite discussed wardrobe decisions made in The Leftovers, and its co-showrunner called for fanfic about the outfits. “You know if somebody wants to write fan fiction, tell me what happens when he puts on the G.R. outfit. Tell me what happens when he puts on the priest outfit. I think that is definitely implicit. And the other fun detail, of course, is that once he chooses the assassin's outfit and he gets it wet and he goes to look back in there's no going back. It wasn't like he could suddenly become a cop. That's gone. The choice is gone now.”
    • Conversely, Bustle highlighted Amy Schumer's self-insert RPF. "Do you love fanfiction? Who doesn’t? Well, my friend, does Gentlemen’s Quarterly ever have just the thing for you. When GQ's Men of the Year issue honoree/guest editor Amy Schumer was asked to invent fantasies about the other folks featured on the list, the award-winning comedian did not disappoint. Every last imaginary scenario concocted by the goddess among mortals is heartfelt. Creative. Moving. Inspired. Beautiful. Perfect."
    • Blogger Natalie Luhrs wrote about what makes something fanfic-y. "It is the idea that there is a locus of shame in pro fic that I find so intriguing and why I have different reasons for reading fan fic versus pro fic (I like both!). But every so often, there’s a piece of pro fic that has qualities that strike me as particularly fannish--they’re usually the books where, as I’m reading them, I’m thinking to myself, 'This is a terrible premise for a book and I can’t stop reading it because I am completely sucked into it.'"

  • What Fanworks Mean to Me

    From time to time, the OTW will be hosting guest posts on our OTW News accounts. These guests will be providing an outside perspective on the OTW or aspects of fandom where our projects may have a presence. The posts express each author's personal views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OTW or constitute OTW policy. We welcome suggestions from fans for future guest posts, which can be left as a comment here or by contacting us directly.

    On December 10, OTW's Communications Committee sent out a call for essays on "What Fanworks Mean to Me" as part of celebrations for International Fanworks Day. A number of you responded, and we'd like to thank everyone who contributed! Today's post shares some of those submissions.

    Kasey, currently in USA

    Fanworks. Wow. Where do I start?

    The vast majority of my fiction-reading in the past, oh, seven or eight years has been fanfiction.

    Through these stories I have gotten some idea what being genderfluid feels like, and felt okay getting medical help managing my depression; I’ve seen my deep love of dancing put into words I’ve never been able to find, and learned about things (winemaking, for example) the authors are knowledgeable about that I wouldn’t have researched on my own. I’ve gotten to read about theatre people like myself, and been ridiculously happy when characters were shown being competent with wrenches (that almost never happens in fiction, have you noticed?).

    Plus there’s the wonderful plethora of AUs which make it easy to just ignore the utter tragedy of several canons (HA, TAKE THAT, lit-teachery sensibility!).

    Fanart, comics, picsets, gifsets, fancasts, and headcanons bring stories from people who prefer those media or didn’t want to write a full fic, and lots of different ways of seeing characters beyond what’s shown by a book cover or source film or limited narrative point of view.

    Fanmixes have introduced me to some new favourite songs.

    And fanart and fancasts and headcanons have begun breaking me of the habit of automatically imagining characters as white, for which I am very greatful.

    In short, stories get much more interesting when the knowledge and life experiences of hundreds of millions of people are thrown at them.

    (Also, International Fanworks Day and Femslash February have turned February from my least favourite month of the year into one I actually look forward to. /Tusen takk/, fellow fans!)

    KathNatsumezaka, Portugal

    Eu escrevo porque é um escape da minha rotina. Cada vez que alguma coisa boa ou má me acontece, eu tento encaixá-la numa história que estou a escrever juntamente com alguns traços de fantasia. Sendo assim, as fanfics fazem parte da minha vida e são a coisa mais preciosa que tenho. Posso dizer que é uma das poucas coisas a que sou boa a fazer é escrever sobre o que quer que seja.

    Durante 6 anos escrevi inteiramente em Português mas agora com 21 anos estou a tentar escrever noutro idoma não só para o meu trabalho chegar a mais pessoas como também para me superar. Gosto sempre ver onde fica o meu limite. Resumindo, a escrita para mim é como a minha vida. Se me tentam tirar isso, é como se uma parte de mim morresse.

    Andromakhe, USA

    As a fanfic author, I would say that the privilege to write about, to "spend time with," my favorite characters and to share my dreams and opinions with the world concerning them is something very much bound up in my identity. That is, fanfic writing is fun, and joy, and a way to make my mark somewhere, a way to be heard and known. Because when one writes a story, a part of oneself goes with it into the world.

    This can be said for any kind of writing, but with stories, it's the heart rather than the brain that gets exposed, and I think that's why stories are so enduring and universal in a way essays can never match. Fan creativity is an outpouring of love and an indication that a story has taken root in people and inspired imagination and new ideas. I think it's the highest compliment to a creator that people have been captivated by their creations, and that's what fanworks show.

    Writing for my fandoms keeps my passion and my emotion alive. It keeps me in touch with the child inside, and I think that's a very important function that should never be lost. Fanfiction is where my heart is.

    Rós Vailintín, China

    International Fanworks Day is coming and I would really like to share my thoughts with you. It's really great that I'm still on winter vacation when this day falls, so I can do almost whatever I wanna do - and I've got a huge lot of unfinished fanworks, novels, arts, songs (yep I write songs), etc., and finishing any one of then can take at least one whole day, so I'll certainly have something to do for IFD.

    Sadly there ain't any cosplay parties or anything like that at this time in my area, but some of my friends would love to enjoy this day with me, so it's still not only me. In a way I think that our friendship developed around fandoms and fanworks; it's what we always chat about, and we inpire each other. Fanworks aren't just mind palaces of the fans. Of course, for people who don't get this, say, my teachers, fanworks are just 'a waste of time' or 'incredibly harmful distraction'.

    But over these years, fandoms and fanworks have become a big part of my life, and have taken up at least a quarter of my brain I suppose. It's not a bad thing though. At least when you're bored, you have something to think about. And making fanworks is a super effective way to use your imagination and express yourself, but many people just don't realise this.

    Say, when I write a crime AU fanfic, I've gotta consider every detail of the case, and that stimulates my brain better than 100 math problems. Fanworks can't help me with exams or schoolwork, but it makes you happy, and that's enough for me. Maybe it's because I'm in my terminal year that I need this much something to keep me in a good mood and motivated. When there's an uncompleted fanwork there, I really finish my shitty homework faster, it's true. Anyway my point is just that fandoms and fanworks are sort of like 'lights of my life', and I can't realy imagine how I lived without them when I was a little girl. And in the end, thanks for finishing reading this!

    SoloShikigami, USA

    I've been dying to start a major re-haul project of my old fanfiction, and perhaps getting it prepared and releasing it on IFD would be the perfect way to celebrate!

    So what does fanwork mean to me? It's a chance to explore - explore the environments characters live in, their personalities or alternates thereof, it allows me to explore the "what if?" possibilities. I feel that it opens up conversations about characters and in turn, people in real life. It's like being part of a really fun and awesome sociology project because it helps me to connect and understand people.

    Fanwork has allowed me to express myself and open up to others in a way I never knew possible - verbal communication tends to be challenging for me and to have an idea expressed, understood, and even welcomed has helped me in the many facets of my life. It may be difficult for others to understand me sometimes as I go about my everyday life, but knowing that I have a safe, warm, welcoming environment in fanwork to come home to makes life a little easier to take.

    Rainbowfootsteps, New Zealand

    Fanworks, to me, are a way of connecting with others through art. People are brought together through mutual enjoyment of shows and stories, and together we create something wonderful.

    Through my creation of fanwork I've made many friends, and gained a deeper understanding of the fandoms I'm in. But it's not just the social aspect I love. It's also the ability to create more content about something you love! Your interest doesn't have to end in canon!

    No matter what you want, you can almost certainly find - or create - a fanwork about it. It expands our knowledge of characters and situations in a beautiful way. So what do fanworks mean to me? They mean community, and they mean the creation of beauty.

    Banner erstellt von Ania, das den International Fanworks Day feiert und zahlreiche Fanwerke inklusive Cosplay, Text und visueller Kunst beinhaltet.

    Wie wir bereits im letzten Monat erwähnten, wird die OTW (Organisation für Transformative Werke) auch in diesem Jahr Events anlässlich des International Fanworks Day organisieren.

    Am 15. Februar feiern wir den International Fanworks Day quer durch alle Zeitzonen. Unten haben wir einige Dinge aufgelistet, die die OTW sponsored. Es wäre toll, wenn Du uns, unten in den Kommentaren, über andere, Dir bekannte Veranstaltungen und Aktivitäten informierst, so dass wir sie hier bekannt machen können.

    1. Feedback Fest: Jeder, der Fanwerke erschafft und teilt, liebt es, von den Leuten zu hören, die sie genossen haben. Deshalb veranstalten wir ein Feedback Fest, um die Werke zu feiern, die wir lieben. Nimm teil, indem Du vom 10.-15. Februar einen Kommentar unter unserem Feedback-Fest-Eintrag hinterlässt, entweder mit Deinen Empfehlungen oder einem Link zu einem Post mit Deinen Empfehlungen. Teile Deine Liebe zu Fanwerken und ermutige gleichzeitig andere, ebenfalls Feedback zu hinterlassen. Vielleicht gewinnst Du sogar etwas!
    2. Drabble-Wettbewerb: Hol Dein Tablet, Dein Laptop oder Dein Handy raus und erschaffe ein kurzes Fanwerk zu folgendem Thema:

      Was weckt den Fan in Deinem Lieblingscharakter oder -pairing? Zum Beispiel:

      • Was passiert, wenn Hetalia's Axis Powers and Allied Forces in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim gegeneinander antreten?
      • Hat Kermit der Frosch jemals Yoda gecosplayt?
      • Was passiert, wenn die Avengers den Bürgerkrieg unterbrechen und sich stattdessen einen Nachmittag gönnen, um sich für Hamilton zu begeistern?

      Veröffentliche Deinen Haiku, Dein Drabble, Drawble, Kurzvideo, Audiowerk oder sonstiges Format am 15. Februar und tagge es mit #IFDShare auf Tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth oder wo auch immer Du Fan bist. Und falls Du es im Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Ein Eigenes Archiv) veröffentlichst, tagge es mit dem International Fanworks Day 2016-Tag.

      Wenn das Werk nicht zu explizit ist, werden wir es vielleicht sogar ins Rampenlicht rücken!

    3. Was Fanwerke Für Mich Bedeuten: Im Dezember haben wir einen Aufruf gestartet und um Essay-Beiträge zum Thema "Was Fanwerke Dir bedeuten" gebeten. Wir werden von jetzt bis zum 15. Februar Gastbeiträge mit einigen der Einsendungen über die OTW News teilen. Aber falls Du Deine Chance verpasst hast, Dich daran zu beteiligen: der Hashtag #IFDShare ist auch für Meta gedacht! Lass die Leute wissen, wie Du fühlst und hilf, die Feierlichkeiten zum International Fanworks Day zu verbreiten.

    4. Fan-Aktivismus: die Rechtsabteilung der OTW arbeitet schon lange daran, Fanwerke zu schützen. Sie haben vor kurzem Fans weltweit um Berichte darüber gebeten, wie Löschmeldungen und Löschungen Fandom beeinflussen. Hast Du, oder irgendjemand, den Du kennst, eine Aufforderung zum Löschen von Inhalten gemäß DMCA erhalten? Wie hast Du Dich dazu verhalten? Wie hast Du Dich dabei gefühlt? Wurde eines Deiner Fanwerke entfernt oder wurde ein Werk, das Du liebst, entfernt? Bitte sende uns Informationen dazu bis zum 28. Februar. Hilf der OTW dabei, Regierungen rund um den Globus wissen zu lassen, dass Dir Fanwerke wichtig sind!

    5. Spiele- und Fan-Chat: Am 15. Februar selbst werden wir einen Chat im öffentlichen Diskussionschatroom der OTW veranstalten, quer durch alle Zeitzonen. Schließe Dich uns zwischen 16:00 UTC am 14. Februar und 06:00 UTC am 16. Februar an, um Fanwerke zu teilen oder Spiele wie zum Beispiel einen Trivia-Wettbewerb oder eine "Cards Against Humanity"-Runde zu spielen. Vielleicht gewinnst Du sogar einen Preis!

    Nachdem wir Dir nun "Unsers" gezeigt haben, zeige uns bitte die Pläne Deines Fandoms anlässlich des IFD, entweder indem du hier kommentierst oder indem Du hier einen Post von Dir verlinkst!

    Dieser Newsbeitrag wurde von freiwilligen ÜbersetzerInnen der OTW übersetzt. Um mehr über uns und was wir tun herauszufinden, schau auf der transformativeworks.org-Seite des Übersetzungsteams vorbei.

    Jak už jsme nastínili minulý měsíc, OTW (Společnost pro transformativní tvorbu) bude letos opět pořádat akce v rámci Mezinárodního dne fanouškovské tvorby.

    15. února po celém světě oslavíme Mezinárodní den fanouškovské tvorby. Níže uvádíme seznam několika událostí, které OTW sponzoruje, ale pokud víte o dalších akcích nebo aktivitách, dejte nám o nich vědět v komentářích, abychom je pomohli zviditelnit.

    1. Feedback fest:

      Každý, kdo vytváří a sdílí fanouškovskou tvorbu, rád uslyší pár slov od těch, kterým se jejich práce líbí, a proto pořádáme Feedback fest, abychom oslavili existenci naší nejoblíbenější tvorby. Zůčastnit se můžete jednoduše tak, že nám v komentáři pod článkem o Feedback festu mezi 10. a 15. únorem napíšete seznam tvorby, kterou chcete doporučit, nebo odkaz na vaše doporučení někde mimo náš web. Prozraďte nám co na fanouškovské tvorbě zbožňujete a zároveň povzbuďte ostatní k zanechání nějaké zpětné vazby. Budete mít dokonce šanci vyhrát dárek!

    2. Výzva ke krátké fanouškovské tvorbě:
      Taste tablety, laptopy nebo chytré telefony a vytvořte něco na následující téma:

      Čemu fandí vaše oblíbená postava nebo pár? Například:

      • Co by se stalo, kdyby si Mocnosti Osy a Spojenci z Hetalie zabojovali v TES V: Skyrimu?
      • Oblékl si někdy žabák Kermit cosplay Mistra Yody?
      • A co kdyby si Avengers oddechli od superhrdinské občanské války a místo toho by strávili odpoledne rozplýváním se nad Hamiltonem?

      Zveřejněte 15. února svoji haiku, krátkou povídku (drabble), malůvku (drawble), krátké fanvideo, audio nebo cokoliv dalšího vás jen napadne a sdílejte to s námi pod tagem #IFDShare na tumblru, Facebooku, Dreamwidthu nebo kdekoliv jinde. Pokud zveřejníte své příspěvky na AO3, přidejte k nim tento tag: International Fanworks Day 2016 (Mezinárodní den fanouškovské tvorby 2016).

      Pokud se navíc vyhnete příliš dospěláckému obsahu, možná zrovna váš příspěvěk pomůžeme zviditelnit!

    3. Co pro mě znamená fanouškovská tvorba: V prosinci jsme vás vyzvali k sepsání eseje na téma co pro vás znamená fanouškovská tvorba. Některé z výsledných příspěvků s vámi budeme sdílet prostřednictvím OTW novinek ode dneška až do 15. února. Pokud jste se nestihli zúčastnit, stihnete to ještě přes #IFDShare. Sdílejte svůj názor a pomozte tak šířit slovo o Mezinárodním dni fanouškovské tvorby.
    4. Fanouškovský aktivismus: Právní výbor OTW již dlouho pracuje na ochraně fanouškovské tvorby. Nedávno se fanoušků dotazoval, jak výstražná upozornění a odstraňování obsahu (především v souvislosti s autorskými právy) ovlivňují fandomy. Stalo se někdy vám nebo někomu koho znáte, že byla vaše tvorba tímto způsobem znepřístupněná? Jaký jste z toho měli pocit? Co jste s tím udělali? Odstranili někdy i vaši tvorbu, nebo tvorbu kterou jste si oblíbili? Pošlete nám prosím své zážitky do 28. února a pomozte tak OTW sděli vládním úřadům po celém světě, že vám na fanouškovské tvorbě záleží!
    5. Hry a chat s fanoušky: 15. února budeme v chatu Veřejné diskuze OTW pořádat menší sešlost napříč všemi časovými zónami. Přidejte se k nám od 14. února v 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET) do 16. února 06:00 UTC (7:00 CET) a sdílejte svoji tvorbu, zahrajte si s námi různé znalostní hry a v neposlední řadě i partičku Cards Against Humanity. Můžete dokonce vyhrát i nějakou cenu!

    Náš plán na MDFT už znáte, ale pořád s námi můžete sdílet plány svého fandomu v komentáři nebo přes odkaz!

    Banner creato da Ania per celebrare la Giornata Internazionale dei Fanwork; include numerosi fanwork tra cui cosplay, testo e arte visiva.

    Come abbiamo accennato il mese scorso, anche quest’anno OTW (Organizzazione per i Lavori Trasformativi) ospiterà gli eventi della Giornata Internazionale dei Fanwork.

    Il 15 Febbraio celebreremo la Giornata Internazionale dei Fanwork in tutti i fusi orari. Di seguito vi è una lista di alcune attività che OTW sponsorizza, ma ci piacerebbe che ci lasciaste dei commenti per farci sapere di altri eventi e attivita di cui siete a conoscenza, così da poterli promuovere.

    1. Feedback Fest:
      Chiunque crei e condivida fanwork adora ricevere notizie da coloro che li hanno apprezzati, quindi terremo un Feedback Fest per celebrare i lavori che amiamo. Partecipa dal 10 al 15 febbraio lasciando un commento al nostro post Feedback Fest con una tua raccomandazione o un link a un post esterno con le tue raccomandazioni. Condividi ciò che ami dei fanwork, incoraggiando altri a lasciare il loro feedback. Potresti anche ottenere un regalo!
    2. Challenge di fanwork brevi: tira fuori il tuo tablet, il computer o il telefono, e crea un breve fanwork riguardo i seguenti argomenti:

      Quali sono le attività fandomiche in cui è coinvolto il tuo personaggio (o il tuo pairing) preferito? Per esempio:

      • Cosa succede quando le Potenze dell’Asse e le Forze Alleate di Hetalia si sfidano a The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim?
      • Kermit la Rana ha mai realizzato un cosplay da Yoda?
      • Cosa succede quando gli Avengers si prendono una pausa dalla guerra civile e invece si prendono un pomeriggio per fangirlare su Hamilton?

      Pubblica il tuo haiku, drabble, drawble, breve video o audio o qualsiasi altro formato il 15 febbraio e taggalo #IFDShare, sia esso su Tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth o qualsiasi altro luogo che frequenti in quanto fan. E se pubblichi su Archive of Our Own - AO3 (Archivio Tutto Per Noi), usa la tag International Fanworks Day 2016.

      Se poi il tuo lavoro ha un rating adatto a qualsiasi pubblico, potrebbe anche essere pubblicizzato da noi!

    3. Cosa significano per me i fanwork: A dicembre, abbiamo chiesto che ci inviaste dei testi in cui descrivevate quanto i fanwork significano per voi. Da oggi al 15 febbraio pubblicheremo post attraverso OTW News con i risultati. Se non sei riuscit@ a partecipare, #IFDShare può essere usato anhe per il meta! Fai sapere alla gente quello che provi e aiuta a diffondere le celebrazioni per la Giornata Internazionale dei Fanwork.
    4. L'Attivismo del Fandom: il Comitato Legale di OTW lavora da tempo per proteggere i fanwork. Recentemente hanno chiesto di ricevere storie dai fan sull’effetto che notifiche e rimozioni hanno sul fandom. Hai mai ricevuto una notifica di rimozione? È successo a qualcuno che conosci? Cos’hai fatto? Come ti sei sentit@? È stato rimosso un tuo fanwork, o un fanwork che amavi? Per favore mandaci queste informazioni; hai tempo fino al 28 febbraio. Aiuta OTW a far sapere a vari governi nel mondo che per te i fanwork sono importanti!
    5. Games & Fan Chat: Il 15 febbraio terremo una chat nella chatroom di discussione pubblica di OTW per tutti i fusi orari. Unisciti a noi dalle 16:00 UTC del 14 febbraio alle 06:00 UTC del 16 febbraio per condividere fanwork o partecipare a giochi come quiz o Cards Against Humanity. Potresti anche ottenere un premio!

    Ora che ti abbiamo esposto i nostri, facci sapere dei piani per tuo il fandom per l’IFD, commentando qui sotto o linkando un tuo post esterno!
