[personal profile] jadelennox posting in [community profile] access_fandom
Does anyone have the resources/time/desire to run a challenge similar to [community profile] dark_agenda's chromatic Yuletide challenge? At least in my perception, that challenge has done a fair amount to raise visibility of and thoughtfulness around chromatic sources. I think it would be fabulous if we did a similar challenge for characters with canon disabilities, but I am (obnoxiously) promoting the idea while admitting that there's no way on earth I have time to help run it.

(Only one of my Yuletide nominations is for book starring a character with a disability: Dia Reeves' awesome Bleeding Violet, whose protagonist has bipolar disorder.)

I think this is a fabulous idea, and have been wondering the same thing myself. Unfortunately, with volunteering for dark_agenda and my own RL obligations, I have no time whatsoever to help this year. :( But I'll go signal-boost, at least.

I would certainly be interested and can think of several fandoms I'll be offering that would fit the bill.

I wish I could help, but I cannot even meet the needs of my own comm without begging kind souls for assistance.
However, a thought! Since intersectionality and all that... if people here wanted to add to the list of chromatic disabled characters we were compiling a while ago to help promote festibility, they could be easily added to a new column in our awesome spreadsheet of information, so that folks could easily find fandoms with chromatic AND disabled characters to write in.

I don't have a huge amount of spoons to spare at the moment, but I could certainly help out with this in some capacity. I'd be very happy to mess around with spreadsheets, for instance!

Can't run anything at the moment and probably until 2011, but:

Perhaps instead of straining anyone's spoons with a formal challenge, this year we could just have volunteers list disabled creators/characters that they recognize in the nomination list, and compile them here? And then transition to a more formal challenge next year if people feel more organized then?

Resources? Yes. Time? Probably, yes. Desire? Absolutely. Spoons? Not so much. D:

This is a brilliant idea. I realise you already have lots to organise, but it could be good to add a column for lgbt characters too.

I don't really have the time/spoons for doing a lot right now, though I might be able to help with compiling things, but I do want to mention that I nominated Mark O'Brien's poems -- he wrote poems about being disabled, about assisted living, about having sex, about breathing using an iron lung, and about baseball, among other things. He wrote two books of poetry, and some selections are available on his website.

Go for it!

I think a fic challenge for
characters with disabilities
would be cool.

Not exactly fanfic, but a
shared world -- Torn World has
some disabled characters. One
of mine, Rai, is legally blind.
One of the adoptable characters,
Marai, is deaf; she's available
for any TW contributor to
write about.

If you (or anyone else here) can think of a name and do a quick banner/graphic, I'll do a post of [personal profile] aris_tgd's idea below, of an informal thing this year, which can be expanded next year.

Is your awesome spreadsheet of information posted anywhere publicly, so we can use it as a model for this, or would you mind emailing it to me, please?

Spreadsheet of Awesomeness!

And I'd suggest you poke around at all the various admin lists and post we have at [community profile] dark_agenda to see how we ran stuff last year and are trying to this year so you can figure out what stuff of ours might work for you.

Also our list of chromatic disabled characters

Oops, sorry. Shortly after posting the comment I thought "Way to go Sophie, what are the odds they haven't thought of that already?"

Wow, that is awesome :)
