Get ready for a three-ring extravaganza of daring and devilry! image

Ring 1 opens July 27★

Come one, come all, and join the Kuroshitsuji Fanworks Circus! To prove yourself, you will need to conquer three challenges, one for each ring in the Big Top! Each challenge will consist of three images, chosen by the ringmaster. Your task is to choose one of those images and create a fanwork inspired by it.

To successfully audition for the Fanworks Circus, you must complete an entry for each ring. In other words, you have to complete Ring 1 in order to enter the Ring 2 challenge. If you completed Ring 1, but not Ring 2, you can’t enter Ring 3. Get the point? Each ring is open for roughly two weeks — you must submit your entry before the ring closes in order to successfully move on (see the schedule below).

Do you have any feelings on the latest WTNV controversy? (That the co-author of 'Summer Reading Program' episode has been revealed to write underage rape fanfiction, and as the creator of Tamika's character, people are skeeved out and upset by this.)

I’ve read the accusatory post in question as well as the rebuttals from people who say that the AO3 tags don’t actually do justice to the fic, that the fics were actually victim-focused and not actually erotic.

Personally, I think it’s absolutely despicable to police someone’s ID this way when all you have for a justification is literally “won’t someone think of the children!”, and I think that it’s especially despicable in fandom where we might have 10000 reasons for writing specific tropes or kinks that people outside of fandom might view as harmful. You don’t know if she’s a victim. You don’t know how she’s treating the topic. You don’t know if she wrote those fics when she was 12 years old herself and trying to explore sexuality in ways that were comfortable and safe for her. You just don’t fucking know, and more importantly unless she signed up with the AO3 name “[Real Name Redacted]” or linked to her AO3 account from LinkedIn, you weren’t supposed to know. It seems like someone deliberately tied her real life professional identity to her fanfic identity, which is bullshit, absolute BULLSHIT. you do NOT out fanfic writers. What the fuck. That’s what got me fired from my job 11 years ago, that is the #1 first fucking rule of fandom, that is why we would rather pull an article than endanger people in the fandom who feel less safe because of it. You do not out fans. You do not out fans.

It’s possible that someone might one day go through my Prince of Tennis fics and try to blacklist my work because I’ve written numerous fics about various characters, aged up significantly, who started out as 11 and 12 years old in their respective canons. Or criticize me because I wrote fics where two teens had sex at age 15, or decide that I’m unfit to do my job or represent fandom in public because I wrote a fic where a gay serial killer and a sociopath practices dubious consent with bloodplay and then gets a happy ending, or because probably somewhere in my recs I’ve bookmarked fics that feature non-con or abusive relationships or incest or who the fuck knows. If someone wanted to go on a witch hunt, they’d have plenty of material. 

And the same thing applies to every single person reading this. If someone wanted to connect your fanfic handle to your real life and then take a stroll through your kinks and tags looking for dirty little secrets, then use it to create controversy and try to ruin your professional career, are you sure they wouldn’t be able to? I wouldn’t take that bet. And I’m way more horrified by the fact that someone thought this was an acceptable way of creating dialogue than by the content of her fics.

I think there absolutely is a time and a place and a context for discussing whether someone’s fictional work should factor into their professional reputation, but the way to have that discussion is not to fucking stalk them on AO3 and then screencap the content of their fics in order to out them on Tumblr. Absolutely disgusting, and the quickest fucking way to ruin fandom as a safe space.

This whole situation disgusts me. It’s common for people to write and read things they have absolutely no interest in doing in real life, not only in fanfiction, but in original fiction as well. Writing about underage characters having sex no more makes somebody a sexual predator than writing about a violent crime makes them a murderer. There is a huge difference between fiction and real life.

I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT last night’s episode did not address the very important issue of HOW DEREK HALE IS GOING TO AFFORD EMBELLISHED HENLEYS NOW. I am envisioning an A Little Princess-style situation where the creditors will show up and TAKE Derek’s shirts and he’ll have to wear terrible bargain basement henleys without even a scrap of ribbon or interesting detail on the collar.
I also appreciate how Derek is working through his past trauma by owning as many things that set other things on fire as possible and using them frequently, like I know we like to badmouth Derek’s therapist a lot, but I think this one might have been onto something when she told him that his homework this week was to buy a zippo lighter. A nice one. Embellished. Carry it around for a while, see that it couldn’t hurt him.
