While LiveJournal has choc_fic and Dreamwidth has chromatic_fanfic, there isn't a multi-fandom asylum on InsaneJournal specifically for characters of colors/nonwhites/chromatic characters. With that in mind, Chromatic Vision is opening its arms to allow fannish works featuring characters of colors to be posted here. Please use the tag event: nonfest when you post. (Note, this only applies to the IJ comm and not the DW mirror comm).

In other news, round 2 will be announced shortly. That means round 1's amnesty period will end once sign ups begin. If you weren't able to post during round 1's amnesty, you can still join for round 2.

There's only a few more days left until the end of our July mini-challenge and for participants to post their recs featuring characters of color! More information can be found here concerning rules and guidelines.

If you don't have an IJ, you can post your recs in this entry.

All recs will be gathered in a masterlist at the end of July.

Your mods have decided to ramp up to round 2 with a July mini-challenge. The theme for the mini-challenge is recs. The dates for posting recs are July 15th-July 31st.

There aren't nearly enough works about characters of color out there (at least we think so anyway!), but what is there is cause for celebration. Show us your recs featuring characters of color.

Rules
- Recs can be of works created by others, or self-recs.
- Recs cannot be linked to a work that's locked or members only.
- Reccers must comment to let the reccee know they've been recced (more about this below).
- Pretty self-explanatory, but works must heavily feature characters of color. So fics of, as an example, Lanie from the show Castle helping Beckett and Castle get together doesn't fit. Lanie dealing with her job, or her friends, or her love life, however, does. (If you have questions about this, please don't hesitate in asking). Please, please do not rec works that stereotype characters of color and/or appropriate their cultures (like the fic ranted about here). This is not what Chromatic Vision is about.
- If you are uncertain about a particular work(s) you wish to rec, please don't hesitate in contacting the mods.

Guidelines
- Recs can be posted in one big batch (behind a cut tag) or singular or split between several days. The choice is entirely up to you.
- The minimum information needed for a rec is the link, author, title, summary (if any), fandom and pairing/character. Warnings/Contains, ratings, reasons why you recced a specific work, and other information are optional, though encouraged.

*It's not enough to just rec. We want to let people know that the works they've created were wonderful enough to share with the rest of the world. For those who are comment shy in writing something original or who don't want to vary each comment per rec, your mods have a Copy & Paste Comment you can use.

Example
Hello. I'm just letting you know that I've recced your work at chromaticvision on IJ. Thank you for creating a memorable work featuring a character of color. <3

Copy and paste code


All recs will be gathered up in a masterpost after the 30th.

If you don't know where to readily find fics featuring Characters of Color, here are some links:

Other news

While your mods ramp up for round 2 of [community profile] chromaticvision, we'd like to hear from our participants and watchers on what we can do to in order to improve the experience of the next and other future rounds.

Dark Agenda has announced the Racebending Revenge Ficathon:

Re-write one or more white characters in the fandom(s) of your choice as chromatic/non-white/PoC, in a story of at least 500 words, with some acknowledgment of how the racial difference would make a difference to the story being told.

Details and sign-ups are here.

If you plan on writing something for the ficathon, feel free to also post it here. :)

Amnesty period starts today! If you were unable to post your work during the original posting dates, you may do so from now onward. Your work will still be included in the masterlist as well as the archive if you had indicated opting into the latter.

Thank you for participating!

[personal profile] bridgetmkennitt
For those who opted into the Chromatic Vision Archive, I will be uploading your works in the next couple of days. I will also be emailing for details, such as if you currently have an AO3 account and header/tag information. Those who posted works on Everything Old Is New may also have their works uploaded into the archive as well.

If you have any questions regarding the archive, please take a moment to read our FAQ.

If you have an older and completed work that features a character of color, and want to participate in [community profile] chromaticvision, you may do so today. Odds are, your work is new to us, and we're all about giving love to characters of color. ;)

Just like the subject title says, posting begins now until the end of April 14th. Everything Old Is New starts April 16th. Amnesty period begins April 25th onward.

Tomorrow is the start of Chromatic Vision's posting dates. Your mods are very excited to see what everyone has created.

If you're in need of temporary or permanent hosting for your works, please comment below and let us know (also whether it is temporary or permanent).

And if you haven't finished yet, never fear! You can still post something through Everything Old Is New on April 16th if you have an older work that features a character of color. We also have our amnesty period which starts April 25th onward, and your works will still be included in the masterlist as well as the archive if you opted in for the latter. Our drop out form is posted here if you need to drop out.

Posting: 4/13/10 to 4/14/10
