In the sea are lobsters, long in body as two tall men,
alive one hundred years. And a church bell meant for an island,

never steeple-rung, sunk with the Genevieve and all hands.
No one asks what I believe. And I would not say very loudly:

I believe in ice, in ice only. It's true,
there is no kind of original earthworm in this country,

all were ice-killed. The old glaciers,
million-ton frontal planes culling millennial topsoil.

Do twelve-foot lobsters seem not as improbable as gods?
Feelers in lengthy syncopation, eyes

deep occupied manholes.
Here one can live at any dark system's edge -

underwater canyons, sewers, storms, stars-
know little about, and die of it, being old.

Terminal winter, our skulls painted with coal dust.
A bell blessed in the ship's punched hull, plunging down.

Most fanwork fests don't involve collaboration from Day 1, but this month's guests talk about one that does: pod_together. KLB and Paraka discuss what it's about and also why a last minute code push at AO3 made for a memorable day. Read more at https://goo.gl/FDa3vy

Altruism is for those
who can’t endure their desires.
There’s a world

as ambiguous as a moan,
a pleasure moan
our earnest neighbors

might think a crime.
It’s where we could live.
I’ll say I love you,

Which will lead, of course,
to disappointment,
but those words unsaid

poison every next moment.
I will try to disappoint you
better than anyone else has.

The banner for the International Fanworks Day Fanlore Challenge 2019

Come celebrate International Fanworks Day with Fanlore this week by participating in our IFD 2019 Fanlore Challenge!

Fanlore is pleased to announce that our week-long editing challenge for International Fanworks Day is making a comeback! Every day from 11-17 February, you can take part by completing the editing task of the day – and be rewarded with an awesome badge for your user page.

Day 1, February 11th: Get started by creating a Fanlore account!

Day 2, February 12th: Add some fanwork examples to any trope or genre page.

Day 3, February 13th: Add some fanon details to any character page in your fandom.

Day 4, February 14th: It’s Valentine’s Day! Share the love by adding some ship examples to any fandom page.

Day 5, February 15th: Happy International Fanworks Day! Celebrate fandom by adding to the page for a fan community that is meaningful to you.

Day 6, February 16th: Find a short page on the wiki of any kind, and add to it!

Day 7, February 17th: For our final challenge, edit any page that is part of a FanloreProject. If you’re unsure about what counts, feel free to ask on that project's Talk page.

If these tasks seem too easy for you, there are bonus tasks for more experienced editors on the IFD 2019 Fanlore Challenge Fanlore page, so give those a go! You can qualify for a badge by doing either one of the day’s tasks – or both.

Happy editing, and happy IFD week! Feel free to ask any questions about the challenge in the comments of this post, or contact us on Tumblr or Twitter.

If you’d like to spread the word about this challenge here on Dreamwidth, here’s some copy-pastable code with our banner:
