I saw that a few other fandoms have done something like this, so I’d like to see what sorts of people make up the Homestuck fanbase. Once I get a large enough sample size, I’ll pore through the data and make some fancy charts and graphs and share the information with everyone. Over 500 people have already completed the survey. I’d really appreciate it if you would fill out the survey here!
Studio Ghibli just announced its first ever TV series, and even more exciting it’s an adaptation of a book by Astrid Lindgren. “Sanzoku no Musume Ronja”, or “Ronja the Robber’s Daughter”, will be aired in Japan starting on August 31. It is a coproduction with 3DCG studio Polygon Pictures (known for animating some of Ghost in the Shell, among others), to be directed by Goro Miyazaki. More details are forthcoming.
The story is of a little girl named Ronja, the daughter of a colourful robber chieftain who lives in a castle high on a rock in a dark pine forest. She gets to know the creatures of the forest, meets another kid like herself, and questions her father’s life of robbery.
It will be interesting to see the new route Studio Ghibli takes now that it is making TV animes.

Lori Nix constructs these small dioramas using cardboard, foam, glue and paint which she then photographs using an 8 x 10 inch camera. Each piece takes about 7 months to complete.

Hello there! Got the post-Ladystuck blues? A big fan of witches and space? We have just the thing.
Jadefest 2014 is a fandom gift exchange dedicated to Jade Harley, and/or all versions of her, e.g. Jadebot, Jadesprite, Grandma English. All artists and writers are welcome to join up. Sign-ups open 1 Feb and will run until 15 Feb, 11.59 pm PST.
Our ao3 collection is here and if you need an ao3 account, please email us at email@example.com.
So why only Jade?
Jade is a very underrepresented character despite her prevalence in Homestuck canon; Dave Strider has ~9000 fanworks with him as a character, whereas Jade only has about ~3500 on ao3 currently. Jade is a fantastic character and this exchange exists so that there is more fic/art centered on her and not her as a side-character!
So I can only write/draw about Jade Harley?
Nope! All iterations of Jade are welcome! Grandma English, Jadebot, Jadesprite and Jade Harley are all welcome. Unfortunately, no genderbends/sex swaps are allowed. Trans characters are accepted. Also-another important thing to note that of course other characters are free to feature, as long as they are not the main star of the show!
Please signal boost to let your fellow fans know about this!
