I've been convinced to sign up for Kink Bingo by ldybastet. I just now put in the request, so I don't have my card yet. I chose to opt out of enemas, because . . . um, yeah. What ultimately made up my mind to take the plunge is that it's low-stress and low-pressure - you only have to post one fic meeting their criteria between now and next year in order to qualify for next year's challenge, and there's no obligation to do the entire card. Odds of the entire card consisting of I-will-most-definitely-not-write-this are low to nonexistent. (Some of the categories are broad enough to include several things, too. "Bodily secretions" at first seems to be a do-not-want until you realize that could cover bukake. Um, there is an unfounded rumor going around that there is a slight possibility of my being able to write that. Maybe.)

By the way, when they say they give extra credit for "underrepresented characters" . . . would Kai be covered under that? (Lord knows all I would need to do is show the mods a typical week's postings on gazette_yaoi . . .)

If anyone else wants to sign up for Kink Bingo (aleksiina_26, I'm looking at you), it's http://kink_bingo.dreamwidth.org

Oooh this is year is going to be exciting if all three of you participate :D

I hope it works out that way! Meanwhile, I'm watching my E-mail box like a hawk for my card . . . from work, so I have to be as discreet as possible.

"Underrepresented characters" is kind of weird... It's talking about identities/ethnicities rather than characters that get no love. Kai does count, because chromatic characters (e.g. Asian) are listed as underrepresented.

You so have to show us your card once you get it! :D

Oh, I will! (Watching E-mail box like a hawk now. From work.)

Ah, so the "underrepresented characters" thing seems aimed at Western fictional character-based fandoms - where everyone seems to be white, heterosexual, supermodel-level gorgeous and anorexic - and applies to characters outside those parameters. *boots Hollywood* Too bad, a "characters/people who get no love from their fandoms" thing would be appreciated.

Ah, I've done that before... XD

*nods* Pretty much! I think it may be because so much of the DW fandom is Western-media based? There's very little love for anime or Jrock on there, so the statistics are a little on the skewed side. I do like the unloved character idea though! There's an achievement for doing a rare pair bingo though, would that count?

Well, not only on DW actually. The same holds true for a lot of places, archives for example. AO3 is hugely dominated by Western media fandoms, to the point that they don't even quite know how to "reach out" to non-Western media fandoms. Most multi-fandom archives are pretty much like that though... :( On LJ, I think it's just that we have focused our flists on anime, manga, and JRock. LOL Otherwise that, too, is mostly dominated (in fandom terms) by things like SPN, HP, SGA, etc.

I've seen some discussions with the KB mods about the issue, and it seems like kink as a whole has an underrepresentation of chromatic people as well as ppl with disabilities etc. So.

But any pairing with Kai must be considered rare, I think! :D

Oh, really? I guess I spend so much time in non-Western fandoms that I've never seen how popular they are in comparison. -_-;

Also, that is a very sad thing. Kai shouldn't be rare! D:

*nods* I still see some of it since I haven't cleaned up my flist from my time in HP. I do a lot of scrolling. :( (I know I should just drop the ppl I never read, but... once in a while, when I make an emo post, ppl I haven't talked to for years drop by and give me hugs, so... that makes it hard. *g*)

Kai should be plentiful. That way we can have one Kai each!!! :D

Funny thing is, when I used to play in a lot of multi-fandon online RP games, they were evenly split between animanga and Western fandoms. (You weren't, and aren't, allowed to play J-rockers there). The funnier thing is there sometimes seemed to be a Great Divide between the two. You had Western media people who would refuse to interact with the animanga characters. It was a bit ridiculous. Granted, most Western media fandom characters were cool with playing with anyone, but there were those few . . .

Kai could be a plural word, couldn't it, given how Japanese works? Kai for everyone!

Wooohooo! Mwahahahahahahahah! I'm good! LOL

Bodily secretions also include tears!!! Crying Gazeboys! What? They're adorable! :D But yessssss... Bukake! I may have a thing for that too. *g*

Now I'm excited to see your card! :D

I just posted it! There's some stuff on there that's a definite yes for me, an equal amount that's a definite no and several I'm on the fence with. I would say I could get 8-10 fics out of it, though!
Jul. 3rd, 2012 04:20 am (UTC)
There was so much stuff to read, but it certainly looks like fun. owo I am going to join in too.
