Reminder: The Who@50 51st Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon! @ 07:49 pm

jjpor:
Just a reminder that it's still not too late to sign up for the [community profile] who_at_50 51st Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon. All forms of fannish endeavour are welcome - fanfic, fanart, fanvids, fanmixes, icons, podfic, and absolutely any other medium in which you want to express your appreciation for the greatest television programme of all time. Posting of fanworks will commence from 1 November 2014 and continue throughout the month. Anything evoking the idea of the extraordinary longevity and diversity of Who would be especially welcome, but maybe the best way to do that is by creating the most typically Doctor Who-like Doctor Who fanwork you can?

If you want to take part, please take a trip to the comm and have a look at the signup post which will hopefully explain what you need to do to participate:

See you there! :)

50th Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon-a-thon, Round Nine: Three / Who Spinoffs @ 09:42 pm

jjpor:
50th Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon-a-thon, Round Nine: Three

(Secondary prompt: Who Spinoffs)


The Four-centred eighth round is on-going, but already signups have begun for the next in who_at_50's series of monthly fanwork-a-thons counting down to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. I hope this month's themes will pique your creative interests. The dashing, be-frilled, hard-driving and hard-karate-ing Three is this month's Doctor, as well as everything his presence implies; Jo, Liz, Sarah Jane, the UNIT gang and the Master. And, to keep things that bit more interesting, our secondary theme centres upon Doctor Who's various fully-fledged spinoff series. While that includes the obvious suspects in the form of Torchwood and the Sarah Jane Adventures, it could also take in curiosities like "K9 and Company" or the proposed Rose Tyler spinoff that never was, or indeed the various spinoff series we've seen in other media such at the audios. If you like Doctor Who fanwork even a little bit, I urge you once again to take the time to look at the signup posts on the comm and, if you so desire, express your interest in taking part:

The Five-centric seventh round continues, but already signups have begun for the next in who_at_50's series of monthly fanwork-a-thons counting down to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. I hope this month's themes will generate a lot of interest and creativity. The legendary Four is this month's Doctor, and he really needs no introductions; the scarf, the teeth, the curls, the arms, the legs, the everything. And, inevitable as it was that we would get to them sooner or later, our secondary theme centres upon the companions, or assistants if you prefer; all of those special people who have shared the Doctor's travels with him over the years; we all have our favourites, don't we? Although I like to think the Doctor loves them all equally, if differently. If you like Doctor Who fanwork even a little bit, I urge you to take the time to look at the signup posts on the comm and, if you so desire, express your interest in taking part:

50th Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon-a-thon, Round Seven: Five

(Secondary prompt: "Minor" Characters)


The Six-themed sixth round continues, but already signups have begun for the next in who_at_50's series of monthly fanwork-a-thons counting down to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Five is the Doctor we're looking at this month, the boyish cricketer who thought there ought to be another, better way, but was continually reminded by the uncaring early-80s universe that there wasn't, really. And in homage to the legendary who_like_giants ficathons of years past, our secondary theme is "minor" characters; all of those one-off heroes and villains, aliens and ordinary folk, who the Doctor has crossed paths (and occasionally swords) with over the years, some of them becoming fan-favourites in their own right. If you like Doctor Who fanwork even a little bit, I urge you to take the time to look at the signup posts on the comm...and if you so desire, indicate your interest in taking part:

50th Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon-a-thon, Round Six: Six

(Secondary prompt: The Time Lords)


The fifth round is still in progress, but already signups have begun for the sixth in who_at_50's series of monthly fanwork-a-thons counting down to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Six is the Doctor under consideration this month; orator, actor, bon viveur, trendsetter... And in light of the fact that they put him on trial for his existence, it seemed apt for June's secondary prompt to examine the Time Lords, in all of their heroic, villainous, godlike, ineffectual, indifferent, meddling glory, all ten million years of it. If you have any interest at all in Doctor Who fanwork, I urge you to take the time to look at the signup posts on the comm...and if it takes your fancy be sure to reply to them!

50th Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon-a-thon, Round Five: Seven

(Secondary prompt: The "Expanded Universe")


Even as the fourth round continues, already it's time to sign up for the fifth in our series of monthly fanwork-a-thons counting down to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. It's Seven this month, the very last of the classic series Doctors; sad clown, wise old magician, formidable weaver of plots. And appropriately considering Seven's lengthy post-TV career in novels and audios, May's secondary prompt considers Who's equivalent of what Star Wars is pleased to call its Expanded Universe - all of the characters and story-arcs from media other than television, that is the novels, comics and audios that have come to take on a life and form canons of their own in the years since 1989. Please, if you have an interest in Doctor Who fanwork, take the time to look at the signup posts on the who_at_50 comm...and if it takes your fancy be sure to sign up!

(Secondary prompt: Monsters)


Even as the third round rumbles on, already we're thinking about the fourth in our series of monthly fanwork-a-thons counting down to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Please, if you have an interest in Doctor Who fanwork, take the time to look at the signup posts on the who_at_50 comm...and if it takes your fancy be sure to sign up! It's Eight this month, who after the briefest and shakiest of TV starts went on to shine in novels and audios, and hopefully an inspiring secondary prompt - Monsters. That's right, all of the good, bad and ugly creatures that the Doctor has encountered, fought and on occasion befriended over the course of his adventures.

As the second round proceeds, it's time already to begin preparations for third in the series of monthly fanwork-a-thons counting down to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Please, if you have an interest in Doctor Who fanwork, take the time to look at the signup posts on the who_at_50 comm...and if it takes your fancy be sure to sign up! It's Nine this month, who deserves (even) more love imho, and what I hope will prove a fruitful secondary prompt - Other Doctors. That's right, Peter Cushing!Doctor, Shalka!Doctor, Fatal Death!Doctor(s) and all of the rest (there's a surprising number of them when you start thinking about it).
