So! You may have heard of the OTW - Organization for Transformative Works -. It's a non-profit organization run by fans that wants to help fandom in all its forms - when fandom wants it, of course -. Among other projects, the OTW handles the Archive of Our Own, an fanfic archive that accepts every kind of fic - RPF, anime, manga, TV series, movies, comics, video games, ice cream flavours... - and that's completely funded by donations. No ads! There's also the Open Doors project, that's available for fic archives which are in danger of going under, Fanlore - a wiki about fandom -, etc.

I've been a tag wrangler at the AO3 for a few years now and this year I became a staffer - that is, a volunteer with more responsibility -. If you're ever interested, there are many ways to help. (Tag Wrangling is easy! And doesn't take that much time! Many fandoms need people who can take care of the tags.)

I know many people have issues with the AO3 and the OTW in general, and this is your chance to give feedback! We're doing a survey right now that covers ... many, many things, to try and figure out what people think of the OTW. :)

solesakuma: Nino with an amusing expression (Nino is amused)


- My friends came over to my house yesterday. I had such a great time! We spent some time at the pool, had heart-to-heart conversations, we watched the Countdown and silly Arashi stuff. Before we went to sleep, we ended up discussing Akanishi and his bad pick-up lines for like an hour. Roo even dreamt of the Jimusho.

- I watched the Countdown! It was great. Shiny yet not so shiny costumes, fanservice between people that hardly ever speak, a great amount of drunks, Johnny's from the past - my favourite part of the Countdown, since I actually like those Johnny's -. One of my favourite Countdowns.

- I also watched the Doctor Who finale. HM. HM. Can't wait to the 2010 season, though.

- JE_Hols reveals! I wrote Hello, you fool, I love you, a Kameda AU fic. Ueda is a paparazzi and Kame is a movie star and together they fight crime. Yes, really. Random appearances of most of the Jimusho, but mostly V6, KAT-TUN, Arashi and K8. Here at LJ, at DW and at the AO3.
I also uploaded my Yuletide fics to my DW/LJ fic journals.

- I'm a tag wrangler for the Archive of Our Own now! I'm really excited about it.

- The JE remix has more than 30 sign ups. I'm excited! Sign up before the 10th!
