A possible future addition to the fictional Muslims list:
New comic book to feature Muslim superhero (source: San Francisco Chronicle)

The superhero's appearance hasn't been finalized, but he definitely will be a Muslim boy in a wheelchair.

I take issue with the use of "unlikely" in the first sentence of the article, but the rest sounds quite promising.

[personal profile] dhobikikutti requested that I crosspost this, so here we are. Hello!

Hey, Inception Fandom. Let's talk about Yusuf for a minute.

To be blunt: fandom is taking the only brown character, one of only two characters of color (Saito gets better treatment but not by a lot), and turning him into a caricature. Warping and dismissing his character when its not ignoring him entirely.

Which, just. No.
No. We can do better than this.

It’s an easy fix - we get about the same amount of information for him as we do for Arthur and fandom has shown that is
plenty. Let’s sit down and go through it.

We've finally managed to update our master list of fanworks for the Eid-al-Fitr 2010 challenge and together we have managed to produce - 44 fanworks! This includes 3 vids, 3 pieces of fanart, 2 meta posts and 5 wallpapers; all categories of fanworks we didn't even have a single contribution in the last four years.

And the amount of money these fanworks have raised (provisionally - we'll post again once reciepts of donations come in) is...


You guys, do you realise how awesome you all are?!

Thank you so much, everyone who promoted, wrote, drew, vidded, talked and otherwise got this festival challenge to the place it reached this year.

We will be replying to all the sponsors in a day or two with the amounts their pledges reached. Many of the pledges got maxed out, which is utterly delightful, although meta, vids and fanart could still net us a couple of hundred dollars more. (If any sneaks its way in before we reply to sponsors, we'd be happy to still count it.)

Now that the challenge is over, please do take the time to enjoy the fanworks created, and leave some feedback for everyone who put in so much time and energy making them - they deserve to be appreciated on their artistic merits as well as for what they earned for charity. Consider writing up a rec post maybe, for your favourite fanworks to come out of it!

And do remember this community is open all year round to post about Muslim characters in the media around you!

[personal profile] kairia, [personal profile] azuire and I all thank you all once again for making our Eid so awesome!
azuire: (the suspense is killing me.)

Greetings and salutations, all! Celebrations for Eid have finally ended, and the response for our little challenge has been absolutely fantastic.

But since [personal profile] dhobikikutti is away from the internet, we're extending the challenge for one more day. After that, we'll post the official master list, and the final tally of pledges.

So if you have anything you've wanted to finish or feel you could do a little extra, please go ahead :)

prozacpark: (AoS:  Rumina/Sinbad)
[personal profile] prozacpark

Fanvid focusing on the relationship between Sinbad and Rumina on "The Adventures of Sinbad."  AOS is one of the few shows that features a female villain as the male hero's main nemesis, and it comes with all the subtext of worthy opponent and enemy mine, and the show lets it be slightly canon.  Sinbad starts his career on the series by killing Rumina's father, a powerful sorcerer, but not before Rumina shows interest in him.  Most days, Rumina just wants to have sex with him.  But barring that, she'll also gleefully try to kill him, and their interactions consist of her doing one or the other alternatively, depending on what the situation calls for.  This dynamic is mostly fun because of the gender-reversed nature of it, and how Sinbad often has to use his manly wiles to distract Rumina from her evil, evil ways.  So they make out.  Often.  <3 

Title:  Masochism Tango
Fandom:  The Adventures of Sinbad
Song:  Masochism Tango by Tom Tehrer
Pairing:  Rumina/Sinbad
Summary:  Fracture my spine/And swear that you're mine/As we dance to the masochism tango.

I got a bit nervous about whether or not my comments on the LJ comm had been seen, so just in case, I'm crossposting here. (Sorry if I'm nagging!) This fic was actually meant for last year's crossover challenge, but I didn't end up finishing it until this year.

Title: Rebecca
Fandoms: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves/Ivanhoe
Characters/Pairings: Azeem/Rebecca, Robin, others
Rating: PG
Summary: When Rebecca of York asks the Merry Men to help her father, Azeem's heart is touched in more ways than one.

When Azeem first saw the woman, from a distance, her bearings and the fine cut of her disheveled clothes made him believe her to be a noble lady recently robbed by Robin's men, and it surprised him greatly that they had brought her along into the depths of the forest.
