I'm considering doing Kaleidoscope this year - I've seen it linked around a lot, but just in case here are the basics:

It's a fanwork exchange for fandoms by chromatic creators featuring chromatic characters/people - there's more info in the official announcement post. And it's for all kinds of fanworks, vids and fic and art and icons and picspams and etc.

The good: I love a fanwork exchange! I love making something especially for someone else and getting something made especially for me. And I love the mods and the concept behind the exchange. And I really do need external pressure of some sort to actually post anything.

The bad: The schedule overlaps a lot with [community profile] kink_bingo's schedule - all of the busiest KB modding times are also the important kaleidoscope times. But that won't mean I'll have no free time! But it probably will mean that I'm cranky and kind of tired of fannish things. It might feel more irritating than fun when I'm looking at an assignment next month. So I don't know.

The difficult: Nominations! People only get to nominate three fandoms, and there are so many cool things not currently on the list, and how would I decide what I want to nominate. I haven't been thinking about doing any multi-fandom exchanges, so I don't have a ticky-able list of Cool Things I Would Nominate For X. It's all just exclamation marks. Sleep Dealer! I want fanworks in that universe so much! Especially if they contain cool speculative fiction or threesomes! Janelle MonĂ¡e's Metropolis/Archandroid universe! All the Samuel Delany, all of it! (Except I still haven't read Dhalgren, whoops.) Game fandoms! Whale Rider, which I asked for for yuletide one year, but maybe [personal profile] glass_icarus is going to nominate it! Etc.

Decisions are hard.

I nominated Sleep Dealer, so it should show up on the list. So you should sign up and make me something! ;)

I am waiting til the very last minute to nominate so that hopefully other people's nominations will help me narrow down my list. XD

I actually had half a moment where I thought, "Well, I could try to finish Dhalgren by the time assignments go out..." and then I realized I was being VERY SILLY.

I share your nominating-angst!
