dhobikikutti: Crescent moon in pink dusk sky over mosque (eid_ka_chand)
[personal profile] dhobikikutti posting in [community profile] eid_ka_chand
The crescent moon has been spotted in various time zones across the world, and Wednesday the 11th of August, 2010, will be the start of the month of Ramadan.

Which means it is also time for the start of our annual fanworks challenge - this being the fourth year we've been running it!

Eid-Al-Fitr will be being celebrated across the world between 10th to 12th September, 2010, depending on local moon sightings. [community profile] eid_ka_chand's annual challenge asks for fanworks -- be they fic, art, vids, icons, meta, picspam etc. -- that focus on a fictional Muslim character.

Fanworks do not need to explicitly focus on Eid or Islam, and can be about characters who are culturally rather than actively practising Muslim.

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

We are running the challenge for fanfiction this year at the Archive of Our Own. Post to the collection there if you are create fanfiction of any length. We will be creating a master list of other fanworks generated that we cross-post to both [community profile] eid_ka_chand and [livejournal.com profile] eid_fic, so you can choose to post or link to icons, vids, fanart etc at the community of your choice.

Last year we had 12 stories and 5 icon posts... and not a single piece of fanart or vid. The visibility of Muslim characters in dominant Anglophone media is minor and one-dimensional. We really really hope that fandom can help us increase the representation, and join all of us who celebrate Eid!

Please sign up! We are looking forward to enjoying whatever you make!

Ooooh, I've no idea what to do this year, but sign me up for at least a fic - and maybe art, if I ever draw again (it'd be so much fun to draw Nazhin from my story)...

I'm pretty sure I'm gonna do it though my story might be short. What I really wanna do though is Harry Potter RPF about Afshan Azad and Shefali Chowdhury, but the challenge is just for fictional characters, is that correct?

I'm currently monofannish with a fandom where I can't think of a single Muslim character. Is it cool to take a character with unspecified background and make that a Muslim character? (Kind of like Xibolai.) What about OCs?

Just a question here... [personal profile] rydra_wong was talking about Eid al-Fitr/Days of Awesome crossovers and said that you had (I think?) talked about the idea of doing "Adam Lambert meets Aladdin." Which is pretty cool. But I thought that RPF wasn't allowed? Or is it only RPF about Muslims that isn't allowed?

*edited for names*

[personal profile] deepad told me about this challenge and convinced me to volunteer to do fanart. Actually, this sounds like an amazing idea in the first place, so she didn't really have to work hard to convince me. The conversation actually went thus:

[personal profile] deepad: You sign up to do fanart eid_ka_chand!

Me: Ooooh! What is that?

[personal profile] deepad: *explains eid_ka_chand and its amazing awesomeness*

Me: *mind is blown* I'M IN.

So I am doing fanart :D

There's should be a "should" in "You should sign up to do fanart in eid_ka_chand". My fingers were too happy as I typed, and I did not check for typos. I suspect this is part of the reason why I draw art and not write fic.
