My 2013 on Fanlore

I decided that I’d like to keep a better record of my activities on Fanlore, and thought that a “year in review”-type post for 2013 would be a good place to start. So I've trudged through my Fanlore edits from 2013 and now present to you some of my Fanlore projects from the past year.

Most everything below is Harry Potter-related.  Though I also worked on a handful of other fandom pages (e.g. The Walking Dead, Baseball RPF, some Les Mis, ...), HP was my focus in 2013. All of the pages linked here are works in progress, and anyone interested is welcome to edit or expand them.

Some of my favorite pages to work on last year were for Harry Potter fanfiction.  I made pages for the now-offline R/Hr story Lotharius by Jane and the early triofic Veritaserum by Calliope, and expanded Maya's Draco Malfoy, the Amazing Bouncing... Rat?.  I also created a page for Cassandra Claire's Weasleycest fic, Mortal Instruments, and started individual pages for each part of The Draco Trilogy (Draco Dormiens, Draco Sinister, and Draco Veritas).

In other Cassie Claire news, I made a page for a list of her fanworks, and started several pages for Cassandra Claire-related wank: The Cassandra Claire Plagiarism Debacle, CharityWank & LaptopGate, and StalkerGate.

Relatedly, I created a page for Sarah Rees Brennan and a (pretty pathetic) stub for Cassandra Claire's Mortal Instruments profic series.

One of my other projects (spilling over from 2012) was working on pages related to Harry Potter femslash, including pairing pages (e.g. Pansy/Luna), websites/resources (Girls Today, Madam Hooch's Broom Closet), and fanwork challenges (e.g. Femmefest, HP Femslash Holiday Exchange, and Dark Witches).

Another of my (never-ending) projects is documenting Harry Potter doujinshi, and I worked on pages for HP doujinshi and circles, including OMEGA 2-D, PRT, EGJ, Mochiya, Master and Pupil LOVER, Kurukuru Girl, Sisters of Franders, ADULT Children, Kurosusutou, and PARSIFAL.  I also continued my effort to document all Gankutsuou doujinshi.

I started pages for the minor HP characters Bellatrix Lestrange and Angelina Johnson, and expanded Blaise Zabini and Cho Chang.

I also started a number of pairing pages, including Harry/Dumbledore, two Weasleycest pairings (Ron/Ginny and Bill/Charlie), and a handful of canon pairings (Draco/Astoria, Neville/Hannah, Arthur/Molly, Bill/Fleur, George/Angelina, Fred/Angelina), inspired by Tumblr's hpshipweeks.

I took a small step in organizing the Harry Potter category by creating the Harry Potter Mailing Lists subcategory.  I also created a number of pages for mailing lists, including ParadigmOfUncertainty, hpslash, Roughside, Draco_101, and hermione_ginny.

I also worked on pages for HP and non-HP archives, including The Firelight, SnitchFiction, HDFF Online, and The Good Omens Library, and pages for a number of fans, including Jane Rucker, Anna Maria Moss, Ashwinder, Firebolt909, Jenny Star, alicexz, and Laura Freeman.
