14th-Dec-2011 12:20 am - Introducing the yalit100!
Writing (Typewriter)

yalit100 yalit100 yalit100 yalit100 yalit100


Love YA lit? Love writing fic?  Love writing fic for YA lit and wondering why there doesn’t seem to be very much for most books?

Join the YAlit100 challenge!

  • You MAY claim more than one table at a time.
  • You MAY do crossovers, fusions, and AU fic! If you intend to write crossovers and/or fusions, claim the table for the MAIN WORK (so, for example, if you want to write 100 godly-parent-fusion fics, your claim would be “Percy Jackson,” unless all 100 fics would star characters from Anna and the French Kiss or something. SOME ASPECT of all 100 fics must be constant for the book/table you choose!)
  • Fics can be ANY LENGTH. You may write 3-sentence fics, drabbles, one-shots, six-word-ficfests, whatever. The whole point is just to encourage more YA lit fic! :)

So far, there are just the first few tables up, but I will be adding my usual amount of ALL THE YA BOOKS.  :P  Join and/or Watch the
comm on LJ for updates, and make sure to suggest any book(s) that you may think I’ll miss or that you want to see sooner!

7th-Jan-2011 04:43 pm - I had some theories . . .
Artemis
I just finished reading the series, and damn. I love iiiiiit~~ I actually read it out of order: 1, 4, 6, 2, 7, 5, 3. I had read 1, 4, 5, and 6 like four years ago, and obsessed over them, and I've just recently decided to get into the fandom. Thus, I was able to read it out of order, since I already had some form of orientation.

Now, one of the benefits of reading a series out of order like this is that it makes it easier to spot things like foreshadowing, symbolism, the tropes, and all that good stuff. I've also been to the AF tropes page without managing to get badly sucked in, which is quite a feat, I must say. XD

So, here are some theories for the eighth book. You're welcome to discuss or comment on them as it pleases you. ^^

So, here we go~!
