I’ve been thinking: There are not nearly enough trans fics out there. Seriously. They’re few and far between, and they’re not always even relatable for all of us trans folk in fandom.
So here’s what I think should maybe happen: A tumblr-wide fanfic challenge, sometime early next year. Initially, I was thinking BBC Sherlock, because that’s my main fandom and what I mostly read, but I think it would honestly be really cool to make it a huge thing and open it up to all fandoms.
But here’s the thing: I cannot in any way, shape, or form make such a thing happen on my own. I’d need help figuring out guidelines, spreading the word, letting folks in other fandoms know, answering questions, gorganising the blog, and sorting submissions/entries when the time comes. Since this is my brainchild, and I’m kind of a control freak sometimes, I’d kinda like to have the last say on stuff, but I definitely need a number of people willing to help out. For hopefully obvious reasons, I’d prefer my helpers/co-mods be trans folk of some flavour or another, though I’d be okay with one or two cis folks who are really good with trans stuff. In terms of entries, I’m definitely okay with cis people submitting to the challenge, as long as they’re willing to research and educate themselves on how to accurately portray being trans.
So, yeah. Anyone interested?
Interested folks so far include 50shadesofnahson, asflkjndsf, fuckyeahftmsherlock, and oldamongdreams.
I’m interested but I have no idea what to write… But I am interested
