[Yullen Week 2011] Open Discussion  

This year, we weren't able to have Yullen Week on Kanda’s birthday. However, the celebration will still be held with a new concept. Yullen Week 2011 will run over for two whole weeks, starting December 18th and ending December, 31st, 2011, to celebrate both Allen’s and Kanda’s (belated) birthday! And of course, this will be a Christmas and New Year’s gift for us ^^

We’re going to have a festival, and both Yullen and Arekan fans are invited to join the party! We also encourage not only authors, but also artists, cosplayers, graphic designers, and practically every Yullen/Arekan fan, regardless what your field is, to join us! Because as we have stated on our profile, this community was formed to widen the scope of Yullen Week participants and archive all varieties of works, be it wallpaper, fanfiction, fanart, icon, doll photos, cosplay photos, or whatever you could think of.

We also encourage any kind of relationship between the two, whether it's friendship, bromance, or family piece; it's not limited to romance, as long as it is about Kanda and Allen. Let your creativity run wild, there’s no limitation! But there’s one thing we’d like to ask you, please always put the following information about your work:
- Pairing (whether you make a Yullen, Arekan, or even a reversible piece).
- Rating.
- Theme and day.
- Warning (if necessary).


This year, we’ll be holding celebration weeks. In other words, 14 days of celebration. Thus, we will have a total of 14 themes! Is it too many? Of course not! Because you are not obligated to submit all of the themes. Still, we greatly encourage you to finish at least 7 themes (or even all the 14!). 

Then, the 14 themes will be divided in two:
- 7 basic themes.
- 7 additional themes (or you can say, these are the optional themes).

Each basic theme lasts for 2 days. The table below is our example:

18Basic Theme 1
20Basic Theme 2
22Basic Theme 3
24Basic Theme 4
26Basic Theme 5
28Basic Theme 6
30Basic Theme 7

Because each theme is for 2 days, you can choose to publish your work anytime during that 2 days period. For example, you can choose to submit your Basic-Theme-1 on either December 18th or 19th.

Alternatively, you can even publish 2 submissions with the same theme if you have the idea for it (i.e. December 18th you publish Basic-Theme-1 fanfiction, and December 19th you publish Basic-Theme-1 fanart).

But if you want to work on a new theme, we provide 7 additional themes for you to use, too. You are free to choose the themes, because they are not restricted by dates. You can also use them as replacement for the basic themes if you can't come up with the idea.

So how is it? Isn’t it fun? :D

Again, everybody is encouraged to share their works, no matter if it's only 1, 2, 7, or even 14 pieces! Late submissions are accepted, just like the past Yullen Week. But of course, if you can finish at least 7 themes on time, we will give you a token of appreciation. Our banner maker will give you a banner! And if you can finish all of the 14 themes on time, we will give you a special banner with the picture of your choice for your achievement!

But what if you post 14 submissions with only 7 themes? You can do this, because each theme is for 2 days (as explained above). We will still give you the special banner, because you’ve succeeded to submit 14 submissions on time! ^^
So be creative, be joyful, have a celebration!

I'm so excited <3
This is great, the new concept brings fresh breeze to the fanbase, in my opinion. Because now people can submit anything they want (not that I can draw or icon, but well. I'd love to see a lot variety of submissions). I'm a huge yullen/arekan fan, so the 2 weeks celebration makes me excited! :D

Please help spread the words too. Thank you ^^

I always enjoy the Yullen Week, but I this year I'm going to try filling the themes *is nervous*. However, my first language it's spanish and I'm not very good with english at all. It's that okay anyway?

Well, even if I don't can enter officially, I still whant to do it in my own. I hope I can, unless you tell me not to do it.

Err, sorry for the Engrish. I really wish to read, watch, whatever you guys going to do!

Hi there~~

We would love to have more participants, so yes you can write fics! If you have difficulties in writing English, why not try finding a beta-reader to help you out? :) I'm sure there are many who could help you out :)

If you have a fanfiction.net account, you can browse for beta-readers there. :D
Kini Ainotsuki: Kouichi Realkamikaze_tai on June 8th, 2011 04:43 am (UTC)
Thank you for your answer. Yes, I do have a ff.net account, but it will be a nightmare for a beta-reader with all my gramatical and vocabulary mistakes (I know maybe you are suffering with my english right now, I'm sorry). Maybe a translator? Or some beta-reader who can survive my engrish.

I had one translator, but I think she's pretty bussy right now. I'm going to search for someone who can help me anyway. Thank you for the advice!
~Ai~: YW11 mod - kisua1y_puff on June 8th, 2011 08:26 am (UTC)
.....oh hey, I didn't really pay attention before but--oh my god I KNOW you! I've read your translated fic, Apostles of God, right? I really liked it ♥ though yeah, I noticed it hasn't been updated in a while. I guess kisproductions is busy? :(

And your English isn't horrible! I'm sure there's someone who can help! I wish I could but English isn't my first language either and I still make mistakes as well >.<

But yeah, I'd love it if you could participate this year ♥

Kini Ainotsukikamikaze_tai on June 9th, 2011 04:06 am (UTC)
Heh, yeah, that's me *blush*, I'm glad you like it, it makes me happy. Thank you!

Ah, I haven't talk to Kassy in a while, so I think she's busy with college (was it college? My memory it's not good at all).

I couldn't tell because your english is very good, I still feel like that mexican foreigners with a heavy accent in the movies, not to mention the mistakes and all. Yeah, I will contact someone. I'm so excited because this is my first time trying in the Yullen week. I hope I can do it!
~Ai~: YW11 mod - BYSa1y_puff on June 14th, 2011 07:45 am (UTC)
eep sorry, forgot to reply. I had no working internet at home XD;

And yeah I enjoyed reading it and I wanna know how the story would unfold buuuuuut yeah, it hasn't been updated for so long ;A;

Haha I don't really know her personally, so I don't know, but last time I heard.. maybe school? XD;

Aww thank you :"> but yeah, if I have to speak English, my accent would probablyb e weird too XD
At any rate, I hope you can participate :D

I'm so excited already! You're brilliant for thinking of this! <3 I like the idea of themes lasting for 2 days as well. =D More Yullen over more days! HOORAY!

*le gasp * 2 weeks of Yullen? Scandalous!
haha, but really, it sounds wonderful.
I got into Yullen literally a couple days after a Yullen week sometime back, and was too busy ever since to submit stuff, so this time, it's definately going on my calender!
It sounds great and I can't wait... how is it that you've made me so anxious for a date several months into the future?
Nel: YW Mod Icon - Sakuranherizu on June 16th, 2011 05:31 pm (UTC)
Haha, I knoooow, right? xD
That'd be nice if you could participate this year! :D
and it's not me who makes you anxious, but the awesomeness of Yullen, right? xD
(Anonymous) on June 18th, 2011 07:36 pm (UTC)
:) I can't wait for Yullen Week!!!
~Ai~: YW11 mod - kisua1y_puff on July 3rd, 2011 09:44 am (UTC)
I can't wait for it too ♥
We'd love to have you to participate as well :D

I read in a previous blog that if we were submitting fanfiction we had to have a beta reader. If thats the case, is anyone interested in becoming my beta? on FF and dA I'm known as Sandarikka (www.sandarikka.deviantart.com)... Also, is there a forum or something here where we submit art? Or do we just do it straight onto dA?
In any case, I'm really excited as this will be my first time participating in Yullen week!
Nel: YW Mod Icon - Allen's hugnherizu on August 2nd, 2011 12:45 pm (UTC)
Re: Betas
I believe my partner, a1y_puff has answered your questions through your FFnet (or is it dA?) account :)

Thank you~
