"Until the end, I'll fight alongside you."
(Finalized main overall theme; 2k13~2k14)


The main overall theme brings together the 7 basic themes, and is based on the events in recent chapters of the manga. As there have been no new chapters, and that last year had very few participants, the overall theme for this year will remain the same.

You may interpret this theme however you wish, whether it be fluffy or angsty, etc.
The fic/work doesn't even need to relate to the main theme, it can just relate to the individual basic/alt theme.

[Extra/accompanying phrases for use in banners]

» elenawindwalker: “We are opposites, yet we are the same.”
  » hanabimonai: “Sinking Moon, Rising Lotus” (alt: “Drowning Moon, Rising Lotus”)
  » hanabimonai: “I’ll carry you through this, like you did for me.”
  » anon: “You are my last salvation.”
  » Bani: “I pretend not to notice what draws me to you.”
  » Bani: “Until the end, I’ll fight alongside you.”
  » Bani: “What’s left of me, devoted to you.”

So... after 2 years, we -- nherizu and a1y_puff -- decided that we can't organize Yullen Week any longer. We have too many things to do in real life, so we decided that it's time for us to retire. These past 2 years have been so much fun, and we can't thank you all enough for your support! We're also sorry if we ever made mistakes (we're sure we did). But the point is, we really love this event and we also really love you all :DD

We honestly don't know if anyone is still interested in having Yullen Week 2013, but if anyone is interested to take over this community, you can comment here and tell us everything about you. All comments will be screened so no one can see your comments aside from us.

We don't have exclusive rights to organize Yullen Week. If anyone wants to hold Yullen Week separately, you have every rights to do so. We're just looking for people who can continue maintaining this community and event, so it won't be purged/deleted (so we can still have all the archives for a long time). Besides, if anyone is still interested in holding Yullen Week, it'll be a waste not to use this community. :)

We're searching for 2 or 3 people who:

  1. Love Yullen/Arekan and will not make a fuss over who tops who (it's a must).

  2. Can be online regularly to take care of this event and willing to actively promote it everywhere.

  3. Are at least 18 years old.

  4. Can commit to take care at least Yullen Week 2013 until it finishes, before passing the responsibility to the next generation of mod.

  5. Want to also take care of our Yullen Week Forum on FFnet.

  6. Understand how LJ communities work and can do basic maintenance (we will teach you if you don't understand, of course!)


Please fill in this form:

LJ user name:
FFn/AO3/DA username:
Email address:
How long have you been loving Yullen/Arekan?
How familiar are you with Yullen Week?
Tell us why you think we should choose you:


Thank you! :)

Your happiest mods,

nherizu & a1y_puff

Hello! Kanda's birthday is near, and now I'm going to post 2012's archive and banners to close the celebration before Yullen Week 2013 starts (if there's Yullen Week 2013?). Thank you so much for participating in Yullen Week 2012!

This is where we archive all the submissions for Yullen Week 2012. If you haven't finished your entries and still want to publish them as late submissions, please inform me the links. That way, I can put them on this list as well ^__^


List of FanfictionCollapse )

List of FanartCollapse )


If you know any submissions that haven't been included on the list, please do kindly inform us, thank you :)

Also, this year the people who'll get their Special Banners are: darket15. And congratulations to SherlockedinErebor, SasuSakuisforalways, ilanitaliaXD and hanabimonai for having finished at least 7 themes on time!


Love,

nherizu and a1y_puff

Today is December 18th, so Yullen Week 2012 has officially started!! Hope we'll all enjoy this event :DD

We will archive all of your submissions here in our community. Thus it will be nice if you could link us to your entries by commenting here. It is not obligatory, but it will certainly help us do the archiving easier. Especially for late entries, since the mods won't be able to check on every community/FFnet/dA once we have passed December 31st. So yeah, if you'd like to help us, please kindly post your links here ^__^

We also have a similar thread on Yullen Week Forum for you who post your submissions on FFnet. If you post your submissions on AO3, LJ, DeviantArt and other places, please drop your links here (because FFn forbids outbond links ^^).

Well then, thank you and enjoy the celebrations!

xoxo
