I've seen it
Through stranger's eyes.
you know whatd be a fun exercise
get a writer and an artist together. artist does a sketch, writer writes a handful of paragraphs. they give them to each other.
writer has to write a handful of paragraphs on the scene depicted in the sketch, and it cant be just like, describing it. artist has to draw a new sketch from the writing.
it’d be a neat lil’ flex-the-muscles sort of thing.
Spot the differences (there are plenty!)
i wanna draw more puella

Hey you! Have you ever written a paper and thrown in a fandom reference under the radar, but wanted to do more than a little joke? Have you ever wanted to discuss big and little issues about fanfiction, but not really had anyone to talk to about it? Do you like listening to people talk about things they care about? Well! Maybe you should think about helping out this brand new podcast, AP Fanfiction!
The goal of this podcast is to critique, analyze, and discuss fanfiction and all its byproducts. It will be built on user-submitted short essays (5-10 minutes recorded, which can range from 800 to 2000 words) about a topic of the writer’s choice - the FRQs of our AP course - and 20 minute round table discussions on tropes, characters, fics, authors, AUs, social issues, and anything else relevant for the episode - the DBQs.
Example topics to write/talk about could be (but are not restricted to):
- fic review
- author review
- gender, sex, and identity in fic
- character/trope discussion using fics as your sources!
- genre discussion
- The history of fanfiction
- language in fic
- UI design of archive sites!
- personal stories about fanfiction and what it means to you
- AU discussion
The other goal of this podcast is to be diverse in its opinions, its fandoms, and its contributors! So, if you have a topic you want to talk about for a few minutes, or if you want to debate other topics of importance with people like you, now is the time to get in on it! All skill levels are welcome. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org about what you would like to bring to the podcast, or send an ask here if it makes you more comfortable! Any level of involvement is all right as well - if you just want to write one or two essays about your favorite things, or if you want to be a regular member!
This is still in the budding stages, so any involvement on your part now would be crucial to its development. Don’t be shy!
so I’ve been planning this project with elany and others all day, and I’m actually excited about it! Signal boost for me!
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
Now this is going on YouTube and you look like an ass!
Well, I guess that makes me lucky, ‘cause, uh… I don’t have anyone.
