It wasn't that long ago that we got things heated up with the summer mini-round, but it's time for the 14th round of blind_go/[community profile] blind_go!!

This round is Author's Choice! 1500-8000 words, up to five fics... due date is September 19th so we can celebrate Hikaru's birthday in ficcish style!!

And... as you may have surmised already... we are experimenting with mirroring the challenge on both livejournal and dreamwidth. However, you do NOT need either a livejournal or a dreamwidth to play! Anyone who loves Hikaru no Go is encouraged to participate!! There's nothing we love more at blind go than participation!! Because we are testing out mirroring, we ask of you this favor: please only comment to posts in the blind go community of the platform of your choice... that is to say, if you prefer dreamwidth, sign up here on [community profile] blind_go. If you prefer livejournal, sign up here on blind_go. This will help us determine how to proceed with mirroring in future rounds. Don't worry, though, it's all one round that will all be compiled together!!

Looking forward to having a great round... with YOU!! What?!?! Did you think we could have a great round without you?? Heck no!! It's always better WITH you!! And yes, I mean you, the person reading these words right now. So, please think about signing up, and signing in for fun and hikagoness!

Thank you!!

You may have already seen this, so apologies for spam, but blind_go is doing another speed go/flashfic mini-round...

Mini-Round 004: Summer Heat!

You can read all about it here. Because this is flashfic, speed go, sign ups are not necessary, but the whole community is hoping you, yes, you are thinking of writing! Even just 100 (sweaty!) words would be enough!! Without your participation, everyone will just be a little sadder, so if possible, please think of submitting!! You've got nearly a whole week! ^_~

Thank you, and looking forward to the sizzling fics! Right off the griddle!!

[personal profile] qem_chibati has mentioned [community profile] not_primetime nominations being open already, but I'd like to highlight a few other things...

- Remix Madness: If you didn't sign up for Remix but would like to still remix Hikago fic, there's Remix Madness going on! People who have opted in and mentioned Hikaru no Go in their sign-up (that means that they have given permission for others to remix their fic for Remix Madness):

List of Remix Madness sign-ups )

Let me know if I missed your opt-in comment, and I'll add you to the list!

- Bring it on at AO3!: I am happy to announce that there are now 704 Hikago fanworks on AO3!

To give a sense of scale, we were only at 365 fanworks when [personal profile] qem_chibati first posted the call back in late January. Congratulations for doing such an awesome job! If we beat Yuu-gi-oh, which is currently at 874 fanworks, we will be in the top 10!

170 fanworks to go...

- OTW Community Survey: On the subject of AO3, the archive is run and maintained by the Organization for Transformative Works, which is a non-profit being run by fellow fans. In addition to creating AO3, they also have a number of other projects, such as Fanlore (a sort of fannish Wikipedia), which you can read about at their website.

They are currently holding a community survey:

OTW Community Survey, April 18-May 2, 2012, survey URL
OTW Community Survey

If you use AO3 or Fanlore (or any of their other projects) in any way, I really encourage you to take the survey because this is our chance to give them feedback. In particular, the OTW has had a history of issues with reaching out to anime/manga fans, and I think it would help a lot to show that we, as anime/manga fans, are using the OTW's projects and tell them what we want from the organization. (And if you're feeling especially motivated, please signalboost to other anime/manga fans as well!)

In the comments to the last post, [personal profile] qem_chibati pointed out some other panfandom activities and challenges that we could invade bring Hikago to, and I thought they could use some more attention.

Running now

Running on a slightly tighter timescale than [ profile] ihikago, [community profile] chromatic_podfic is running its second annual challenge, and any podfics for Hikago will automatically qualify. Sign ups are open now until January 28! (Disclaimer: I mod [community profile] chromatic_podfic so yes, this is completely self-interested.)

[community profile] fancake, a themed multifandom recs community, is collecting fic recs with Established Relationships until February 15. There's already been some recs for Hikago, but let's add more! All your favorite "Akira and Hikaru are so married" stories should count.

Coming soon

Porn Battle XIII opens for prompting on January 28...let's try to leave some prompts for our fandom!

And later down the line, there's [community profile] not_primetime, a fic exchange for medium-sized fandoms, coming up in April.

In the meanwhile, let us know if there's anything else going on we should be linking to!

Hikago fans: in ur challenge...bringin' the igo. XD

[ profile] ihikago is running its fifth round. Readers can sign up until January 24. Authors can give permission for their fics to be recorded at any time.

[community profile] eastasianfandomgiftbag is a wishlist exchange that's been running for the past two months, but you still have until the end of January to fill any prompts/requests on people's wishlists. Here are the wishlists that include Hikaru no Go: manga: hikaru no go, anime: hikaru no go.

Are there any other panfandom challenges or activities going on that could include Hikago fans? Leave links in the comments!

Hikago Day!

[personal profile] dorrie6, who runs Manga Bookshelf, hosted a roundtable discussion on Hikaru no Go in honor of Hikago Day and the release of the last volume in official English translation.

The site is also hosting the annual Let's Five Meme.

And fics are up for [ profile] blind_go at Round 11: Directory!

(If there's anything I've missed, please drop links to any other May 5 fandom activities in the comments.)

Happy Hikago Day, everyone!

While we’re waiting for our wonderful!volunteers to set up the Open Beta celebration activities and while the dust settles at all the brand new Dreamwidth journals, I thought I might share with everyone a couple of fun links about Go...

Via [personal profile] thistleingrey, here's an amazing compilation of photographs showing the history of the game of go:

Normally I try to keep some distance between this fannish name/journal and what I publish under my real name, but for just this once...

Last night, I posted a review of volume fifteen, which will be released by Viz here in English on May 5th. If you're interested, here it is. :)
