29th-Aug-2015 02:23 pm - Is There Anyone Out There?
Hi! My handle is beccadg in various places. Friends can just call me Becca. I've been a fan of Arslan Senki since the OAV/OVA were released in the United States back in the 90's. I just recently learned about the new manga, and anime based on the books. I don't think the art is nearly as pretty as the 90's versions, but the characterizations seem to be good so I'm enjoying them. I was hoping I might find some Daryun/Narsus shippers here that are enjoying the new show too.

8th-Jul-2015 08:57 pm - new anime?! and a fic.
Sooooooo...anybody out there watching the new Arslan anime?! I'm watching it and I love it. It was really easy for me to just fall in love with the characters all over again, but I know Arakawa's style might not be everyone's cup of tea.

I actually had a ton of fic ideas planned out for the old animation series, and looking through my notes I was inspired and actually got one started. It's based in the 2015 new verse, but kind of has an old verse feel.

I wanted to share it here also! Because I have such a soft spot for LiveJournal still, and hate to see awesome communities die. It's not yaoi, but I hope that's alright.

You can read it here at Archive of Our Own.

I know this community is pretty much dead at the moment, but I just found out some amazing news about Arlsan Senki and had to share before I explode! There will be a new manga adaptation coming this month! If that wasn't mind-blowing enough, the art will be done by Hiromu Arakawa, of Fullmetal Alchemist fame!

I saw it mentioned in the wikipedia entry for the series, so I googled around and sure enough, it looks legit. There is an article here about it.

I'm soooooooooo excited!

So the old manga version will probably wrap up soon?

Maybe the series will gain more popularity since it will have such a heavy-hitting artist behind it?

Maybe even a new animated version?

Whoa, is that Arslan in the pic at the article I linked to? So different! I'm used to wispy, über-bishonen Arslan. This will take some getting used to!

If there is anyone out there in LJ land who is still an Arslan fan, let's share the feels! XD

      I'm holding a fanart contest for unskilled drawings and childish style. I'm not very hopeful about people in this comm taking part (the Arislan fandom is sadly quite dead), but I wanted to post the pic I've made, so here I am.

In any case, if I'm wrong and some of you want to take part, here's the info and submission post and here's the exhibition of the works, where you can vote for your favourites. Thank you!

23rd-Sep-2007 10:47 am - The fanfiction archive
Here's what I know...

The Host that I used to house the archive is no more. They up and left with no warning. The files are not retrievable. I am not a happy camper but I will not express my disappointment and anger at someone's unprofessional behavior here.

What I don't know is if it will be back. I will have a final decision by Thanksgiving. My next period of time off where I could bring it back. The last archive I had a whole lot of help from Tavam, who without their help the archive would have never gotten off the ground.

If you are interested in seeing the archives return, either the HLOA or the RW please express this in the comments section.

As always I would be delighted to host your stories and artwork the old fashioned way, aka htmling and loading onto YaoiLuvR site.

Ella

ps. if you are on the yaoiluvr ml, yaoiluvr lj, Arslan ml or the Arslan journal you will receive/see this post multiple times

By all appearance Willow is gone. It was the host site that both Arslan and Ronin Warrior archives were located. The email I sent this morning came back as undeliverable.

Looks like I've been screwed folks. The space was paid for.

Arslan Archive seemed to have disappeared and I have no clue why. I can't even access plesk, the main sign in screen for the host to find out anything nor do I have any contact info since the host changed hands. =/

Ugh. Its not anything I can do about it til this weekend, if its not back up by then.

      I'm not sure how I should call it... more than a drabble, less than a ficlet... sorry again for the crappiness.

      Anyway, as I firmly believe that this fandom is not dead, only sleeping, here's another piece of writing I did about it.

      My most heartfelt thanks to annnimeee for the beta-reading. Thank you.

I finally got a new computer! (My last one was going on 8 years old) and guess what my new computer has: a program to make music vids!

Anyways, I made a Gieve/Arslan video and I thought some people around here would enjoy it! Feel free to tell me what you think.

PS. if someone could point me in the direction of a good (free) high-quality DVD Ripper, I would appreciate it!

We got two new members into the group!

*waves*

Yes, been a neglectful momma, many, many heartfelt apologies. Gahhh! I so want this fandom to survive.

*sighs*

I haven't pulled another contest because I still owe two prizes out. Many apologies for that too, I haven't forgotten you guys, guilt is eating me a live! Money and time and I've forgotten what the damn prizes were...Would you guys be willing to accept a gift certificate from Amazon on the first of February to compensate?

I need a bit of help. I've been looking everywhere and I can't find the mp3 for Ryoute Ippai! It's driving me nuts! Can someone help me out? I'd really appreciate it!

13th-Jul-2006 04:45 pm - In Need of Assistance!
I need a bit of help. a while back someone uploaded HLoA in Japanese and English and I downloaded it. It works fine and all and I was REALLY hoping to make some icons (especially of the scene where Gieve shakes his butt because I think that's hillarious), but of couse there is a problem:

Photoshop ImageReady won't except the file. Neither will Quicktime or any viewer other than that Combined Community Codec thing. I tried the "print screen" options (and slowed the movie down, etc etc. (I also sped it up really fast which was hillarious to watch/listen to)) but that didn't work either.

Can anyone help me out here??? Can someone tell me what program I need to use to:

A) view the file and take caps
B) change the file into a read-able file
C) something else?

Thanks in advance and sorry for any trouble! (If someone helps me out, I'll even make them a special icon or something).

       Hi!

       Since it's been a while since the last post in this LJ comm, I've decided to upload a silly drabble I wrote a while ago. I warn you, it's quite crappy and unbetaed, but at least, it's an Arislan drabble (better bad than none, it's what I always say). Just an excerpt of a conversation...

21st-May-2006 07:19 pm - Drabble challenge
Because your modliness never did post the next challenge and because sometimes screencaping is the annoying part of posting a challenge anyway, time for something a little bit different.

This week’s challenge and by ‘week’ I mean however long it takes within reason, is still to write something in drabble format (100 words) but the drabble theme can be anything you like. Centred around a word, a pairing, a scene, anything’s fine.
Go to, fine Arslan authors!


Also, by way of explanation emthornhill has been most busy and sickly of late: I’ve just been lazy so you can wave your angry picket signs at me if you like.

1st-Apr-2006 12:34 am - Tags and beagles
Just to prove that your other mod only seems to do things after a couple of glasses of wine, bad girlie wine in this instance a little key to adding tags for drabbles and challenges:

At the moment all the challenge announcements come under ‘drabble challenges’ and ‘drabble challenge whatever-number’, while all entries are ‘drabble challenge whatever-number’. So I’ve added a ‘drabble’ tag to all the drabbles so that every drabble that’s been submitted can be found under that tag.
It’s probably fairly obvious anyway but at least this way I’ll remember what I’ve done in the morning.

I may do something about adding things to the memories at some point too but so far the tags function seems to cover everything we need.


That should just about cover everything but feel free to poke me about the matter.
As for the beagles; I lied, there are no beagles involved in this post. They were just a ploy to get your attention.

24th-Mar-2006 06:36 pm - Yes, MIA
Sorry I've been MIA, but unfortunately due to RL it will be that way for a while. Possibly until mid-June.

However, I am on vacation this week. ^_^

I noticed that there was a late response to Lauand's pic challenge. Viv, dear, you can post the challenge if you'd like.

As for wanting extended deadlines. I tossed that one around awhile. If you are going to extend the deadline then the word count should be extended as well.

Comments welcomed.
