Is anyone else having issues getting on Dreamwidth? I'm missing my fandom snowflake fix! :P

In other news, bunn has painted a scene from Paradox! It's on her deviantart (victoriaclare); I will embed it into the story when I'm not meant to be working!

I think I did a few in 2012. I might do some, if I have finished Magnificat by then.

The Sad Demise of Tolkien Archives

I was reading a post by Indy on Dreamwidth about her updating her list of Tolkien-specific archives and so many are dying. Only 3 are really active now: The Silmarillion Writers Guild, MPTT (Many Paths to Tread) and Faerie. I will link to Indy's Tumblr post which anyone can see.

I feel it's very important to keep these smaller Tolkien-specific archives going, and I do think there'll be an upsurge in fic once Amazon?s Lord of the Rings series is launched. So let's do all we can. If you know anyone who does not post on here, please encourage them to do so (or on one of the others). When I came into online fandom there were loads of Tolkien archives and they have just withered.

Here is Indy's Tumblr post:

That makes me sad as I am fairly new to the fandom and wasn't aware of many of those other archives.

Of note: Teitho is still going. It's a little different format than most archives but they are still posting prompts and stories very month. They have recently revamped their criteria and are now accepting fic with any Tolkien characters, not just Aragorn and Legolas and they have opened it up to mild slash as well.

I see Teitho on Tumblr, and am glad it is still going :) And that it’s now opened up a little.

Stories of Arda and N&N both Genfic Tolkien archives are still going.

Sadly, everything seems to come to an end in this world. Even the lotrfanfiction.com which was my favourite (before the debacle with the ownership at any rate) seems quite dead. A bit sad realization, while returning for while to a once dear hobby. Fortunately this site still seems to be going. Got to check out Stories of Arda and N&N too.
