A Fantastic Legacy [Oct. 11th, 2014|10:59 am]
Diana Wynne Jones Community

A month ago I was at a conference about the life and work of Diana Wynne Jones, and now I have posted about it in my LJ: first day here and second day here. I haven't cross-posted to this community, because they are very long posts, but all readers and comments are welcome!

Google Doodle [Aug. 16th, 2014|12:55 pm]
Diana Wynne Jones Community

Today, in the UK and rather more mysteriously,  in Iceland, Russia, Greece and Indonesia*, the Google Doodle is for DWJ's birthday!


* Maybe the maker of the Doodle wants a door that will open in those four locations...?

Hello! [Jul. 20th, 2014|03:56 pm]
Diana Wynne Jones Community

Hi guys, new to the community here, although I've been her fan for a number of years.

This entry might be slightly off-track, but it's really about Diana's books.

I've been re-reading her books recently, and moved to HMC when I remembered someone telling me that 'Stardust' (by Neil Gaiman) was equally as good (both novels use 'Song' so). So naturally out of curiosity, I (sorry) downloaded the free PDF version from the Internet. Now I'm not bashing Gaiman... but how can Stardust, be possibly compared to HMC? It's just worlds apart. In my own (perhaps biased) opinion, HMC is way better in all aspects.

Just wondering, has anyone read Stardust and felt the same as me? :)

Sign-ups are open at The Exchage at Fic Corner [Jun. 19th, 2014|11:47 pm]
Diana Wynne Jones Community

Sign-ups are open at The Exchange at Fic Corner, an exchange for children and YA books.  Several Diana Wynne Jones books were nominated this year!

Originally posted by hhertzof at Sign-ups are open
Sign-up on AO3. You will need an AO3 account, but their queue is down to less than a day. Please note that you must be logged in to sign-up.

Fic Corner Tag Set.

Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters at DW/LJ.


You must request at least three fandoms, and can request up to ten. You may request between 0 (any) and 10 characters. The exchange is set up to match ANY, not ALL to increase odds of matching. You may not be matched on ALL the characters you request.

By requesting Any, a participant is requesting Any characters on the fandom's nomination list. Do not be that person who requests Any in Fandom F, but writes about specifically wanting Character Z from Fandom F who wasn't nominated.

You may also request Any if you want fics focused on worldbuilding instead of a specific character(s).

Prompt URL: If you want to leave a Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letter for your writer, this is the place to do so.

Description: Optional details are optional, however, if you want to give your writer ideas, this is the place to do it, whether you write a letter or not.

Rating: List all ratings you're comfortable with. Some people prefer fic that celebrates their childhoods, some people want to see it totally ruined. Like characters, you will be matched on one or more ratings. Please choose all ratings you are comfortable with.. Any means that you are comfortable with ALL of the rating possibilities.


You must offer a minimum of 3 fandoms, maximum of 10. You may offer up to 10 characters or offer Any.

The bucket list is enabled, so you can offer more than 10 fandoms, but any fandoms in the bucket list default to ANY characters, ANY ratings. More information about making a bucketlist offer (including a lovely diagram) can be found in the Yuletide sign-up instructions.

Don't forget to request/offer fandoms you want. If you're lukewarm about a fandom, don't request it or offer it. Chances are this will be the fandom you receive/are assigned.

Once at least five people have signed up, you'll be able to keep track of current request/offer numbers via the signup summary.

You may edit your sign up form until sign ups close on June 25th.
