Ramzan begins this weekend across the world, which means it's also time for our annual fanworks challenge! Our challenge asks for fanworks (fic, art, vids, icons, meta, picspam &c.) that focus on a fictional Muslim character. They do not need to explicitly focus on Eid or Islam, and can be about cultural rather than religious Muslims. Depending on local moon sightings, Eid Al-Fitr this year will be 19th August.

We are once again running the fanfiction challenge this year on Archive of Our Own. You may post fanfiction of any length to the Eid 2012 collection. Icons, vids, fanart &c can be posted or linked to in this community or the one at livejournal. If you do not have an A03 account please do request an invite and we will send you one.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to: ekc [dot] mod [at] gmail [dot] com

The master list of fictional Muslim characters is a good place to start. We look forward to whatever all of you can offer.

Ramadan Kareem everyone!

I happened to go to Ao3 without being logged in, and noticed that my eid_ka_chand story was up as a "mystery work" to be revealed soon. The reason I've never noticed before is that I've always been logged in and able to see my own stories...

I tried to edit, but couldn't find a place to un-mystery it. Is it something one of the mods can do? Otherwise I suppose I'll have to take it off the collection so that at least people can read it.

Eid Mubarak everyone! Our EKC 2011 Ficathon is now live on AO3! We will also release the master list for this year's works soon, so if there are any icon posts, meta, vids, or art that have not been posted to the community over Ramzan, you may either post them directly to the community, or link in comments & we will add them.

Cheerio & this challenge shall be back on 20th July next year!

I'm not entirely sure what's going on with the DCnU. Hopefully Billai Asseiah(Nightrunner) hasn't got completely lost in the shuffle.

However, I was just reading an interview with Paul Cornell about the line up for his new sword and sorcery book Demon Knights, and we finally got a full team line up.
But he did reveal that besides Etrigan, the comic also features Vandal Savage, an immortal who's been around since the days of cavemen.

Cornell has since revealed more line-up for the comic during convention appearances, including: Horsewoman, an archer who can ride horses but cannot walk; Shining Knight, a young sword-carrying hero whose true identity (and gender) is masked behind armor; Madame Xanadu, a mystic with a mysterious background; and Al Jabr, a Medieval playboy inventor

The crescent moon has been spotted in various time zones across the world, & Ramadan has begun! Which means it's also time for our annual Eid fanworks challenge. We are not running a sponsored challenge yet but are open to suggestions.

Eid-Al-Fitr will be celebrated across the world on or around 30 August 2011, depending on local moon sightings. Our challenge asks for fanworks (fic, art, vids, icons, meta, picspam &c.) that focus on a fictional Muslim character. They do not need to explicitly focus on Eid or Islam, and can be about cultural rather than religious Muslims.

The master list of fictional Muslim characters is a good place to start looking for fandoms.

We are once again running the fanfiction challenge this year on Archive of Our Own. You may post fanfiction of any length to the Eid 2011 collection. Icons, vids, fanart &c can be posted or linked to in [community profile] eid_ka_chand/ [livejournal.com profile] eid_fic. If you do not have an AO3 account, feel free to ask for an invite.

Last year we had a tremendous response - let's do that again this year! Sign up and we look forward to whatever you have to offer.

Any questions or concerns can be directed as a PM to this mod account, or via email: ekc [dot] mod [at] gmail [dot] com

Ramadan Mubarak!

ETA: Feel free to ask for original characters in case the canon doesn't have any.
2) Please write the fandom and pairing and/or main character(s) in the subject line of your request. Prompts can be words, themes, a situation, anything that strikes your fancy. One prompt per comment. We welcome multilingual prompts/replies, please make a note of that in your prompt/reply and it will be included in our master list.
4) Reply directly to the prompt and if it's too long for one comment, reply to your first comment. Kindly include FILLED: title, fandom/character and rating in your reply subject, with any relevant trigger warnings. If replying to Part 1, you can repeat the subject or just write "Part 2".
5) Multiple replies to a single prompt are most welcome. Writers may write as many responses as they like, and prompters may write as many prompts as they like.

Hi folks - my deep apologies for not getting to this sooner!
I totalled the amounts in the reciepts forwarded to me by sponsors of the Eid-al-Thon that we held last year to raise funds for the survivors of the Pakistan earthquake, and, thanks to several generous doners who contributed more than their pledged commitment, we managed to raise...

45 Pound Sterling, 5,000 Yen, and $1,655!!!!

(It is possible that we have also raised an additional $72.50 - if you're one of the people whom I PMed yesterday asking for a copy of your reciept, just let me know and I can add your amount to our final tally.)

Once again, a huge thanks you to both all the generous sponsors, and the fan creaters who produced the many fanworks that helped raise this money.

Also remember, the collection at AO3 is open for submissions of fic centering around a fictional Muslim character all year round, and in addition has subcollections for each year of the Eid-al-Fitr challenge.

I'd also like to mention that the lovely [personal profile] azuire and [personal profile] kairia will be taking over as the mods of this comm since I need to step down, and will be running the Eid-al-Thon in August this year.

Once again, thank you everyone for your support of this comm!

Hey, thought I'd post some of my older vids since this community is (mostly) unaware of them! And it seems some of you have been pulled into checking out the fandom too which is always a good thing!
This vid is more depressing though :(

Since many don't have a scooby who Christian and Syed are I thought I'd post here my ten minute round up I made for the story so far... it was my first vid in the fandom when my clip choice was limited and not great, I have improved it in the last few months with better sourced clips so it's not my favourite work but for any interested in 'falling' into looking them up more (pimp hat on) then you might like this...
It's a repost from the lj chryed community.

Unfortunately, youtube doesn't like the video for music copyright so I've uploaded it elsewhere this time, which is annoying because I'd prefer to have all my videos together. I'll be working on my own site and will hopefully have everything collected there shortly.
