Mod post: Dreamwidth backup

Apr. 21st, 2017 | 10:05 am
posted by: railise in robinsociety

Hi, all!

It's been awhile since this community (and fandom) have been active, so I'm not even sure what sort of response I'm going to get to this post-- but, here we go...

There's a lot already posted around LJ about the new servers and Terms of Service, and the moral and potential legal issues involved with those, so I'm not going to get into it here. What it boils down to for us, is that many LJ users and fandoms are moving en masse to Dreamwidth. (For those unfamiliar, DW is a very similar platform to LJ, but is a vast improvement in the moral/legal sense.) Some parts of what's left of the Robin Hood BBC fandom are among those moving, or at least backing up, journals and communities at DW.

As several of the owners of RHBBC communities are concerned about them being taken down, either due to content or lack of use, we were discussing backing them up at DW. Not wishing to lose the history at this community, I quickly did so-- it's here: THE ROBIN APPRECIATION SOCIETY AT DREAMWIDTH. However, it wasn't until after I'd done so, that it was pointed out on other communities that there is fanfiction posted to these communities, which shouldn't be moved without the authors' consent.

Therefore, I locked the DW community and went to community-lock any fic posts until I could get in touch with the authors, but then I ran into a problem: admins can't change the security level of posts made to a community at DW. So, I can't make these posts un-public. However, I also don't want to delete the community, since there is support for having it backed up at DW. So, here's what I've decided to do:

Looking at the "fanfiction" tag, there are 150 fic entries at RAS, which is a totally manageable amount. I'm going to leave everything alone for one week, starting today. ANY AUTHOR WHO WANTS THEIR FICS KEPT UP AT THE DREAMWIDTH RAS COMMUNITY NEEDS TO COMMENT TO THIS POST, OR PM ME, NO LATER THAN NEXT FRIDAY, APRIL 28th. (Not to shout, but this is already tl;dr, so I want to make sure nobody misses this.)

Relatedly, I will immediately delete any fics by authors who comment or PM that they do not want them at Dreamwidth. It was my intention to protect this community, and I apologize for inadvertently not protecting authors who have posted here. That was never my intent.

I will try to PM any authors who haven't responded to this post by Wednesday, April 26th, but I can't promise that I'll have time to do that, as many people have contributed to this community over the years. So, if you see this post, PLEASE respond one way or the other. As of April 28th, 2017, I'll be deleting all fic posts at the DW community from authors who haven't gotten in touch with me. I will not be deleting posts which merely link to fic journals or personal journals, only posts which actually contain fics.

This is the best solution I've come up with for preserving the Robin-love-- which was the whole point of starting this community in the first place-- while respecting the rights of authors who've shown love to Robin through their works. If anyone has any concerns or questions beyond what I've addressed in this post, please feel free to bring them up.

I hope this post has found you all well, and that I'll be hearing from you soon! :)





EDIT 2017.04.28: All fics by authors except those who contacted me have been deleted. I'm sorry, but I didn't have time to send out PM's to those I didn't hear from (which I pretty much expected; that was a hopeful statement but not a realistic one). If any authors who didn't get back to me do want their fics at the DW site, I encourage you to re-post! :)

New Season 2 finale AU fictions

Mar. 14th, 2015 | 07:30 pm
posted by: amarantheaa in robinsociety

So few fictions have be posted in this society in the past months… I feel obliged to make my small contribution to the life of this Robin-centric society.
Robin is my favorite character on the show, so I have written many things devoted to our hero.
Below you can find new Season 2 finale AU fictions.

Title: Price Of Loyalty
Characters: Robin of Locksley (Robin Hood), Marian of Knighton, Guy of Gisborne, King Richard I of England, outlaws, Carter, and some original characters
Pairings: Marian of Knighton/Robin of Locksley, Marian of Knighton/Guy of Gisborne
Summary: Season 2 finale AU. The journey to Acre to save King Richard ends in the most unexpected way. The price of utter and unconditional loyalty might be very high. Loyalty has a reverse side. The love triangle of Robin, Marian, and Guy is untangled differently.

The battle in Imuiz ends differently. However, the Black Knights gathered a large army near Acre, but the outlaws don't know about it yet. There are detailed, rich descriptions of fights.

Title: Lost Illusions
Characters: Robin of Locksley (Robin Hood), Marian of Knighton, Carter
Pairings: Marian of Knighton/Robin of Locksley

It's Robin's birthday, and the 5th anniversary of the RAS!

Oct. 14th, 2014 | 01:51 pm

So, I'm never really around LJ anymore and sadly don't have a lot of time for fannish sorts of things these days, but when I realized this was Robin's canonical bday and that the RAS had been started five years ago (!!!), I made time to throw this together:



As an added bonus, have some pervtastic screenshots from Jonas's latest film, Edge of Tomorrow...

A few thoughts on Robin the Crusader

Jul. 5th, 2011 | 12:40 am
mood: thoughtfulthoughtful
posted by: railise in robinsociety

Most of this is pure conjecture, and almost none of it's based on solid research, lol-- just brief internet searches. But for awhile, I've been relying on a couple of sources to give me an idea of the routes Robin and Much might have taken to and from the Holy Land, which I've now revised. And, I think I have a rough date for the assassination attempt on the king and Guy stabbing Robin.

SHORT FIC - AD 1186: The Nottingham May Faire - PRE-SERIES

Apr. 26th, 2011 | 05:10 pm
mood: mischievousmischievous
posted by: nettlestonenell in robinsociety

Title: The Nottingham May Faire
Author: Nettlestone Nell
Word Count: 4857
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Marian, Robin, Much, Robin/Marian, OCs.
Spoilers/Warnings: 100% pre-series speculation. No spoilers for the show. It does build somewhat on my prior flashback, AD 1185: The Pleasure of a Peasant's Revel posted at 'Society of People Who Are Afraid of Maid Marian'.
Summary: Pre-series. Following the autumn betrothal of Lady Marian of Knighton and Robin of Locksley, the May Faire festival comes to Nottingham and reveals how much one of them has been forced to change, and the other, how little.
A/N: Another (pretty much) entirely stand-alone excerpt from a far longer fic I wrote trying to mend the deadly outcome of Season Two.

Title: The New World
Author: Nettlestone Nell
Word Count: 2263
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Robin, Marian, Much, OC
Spoilers/Warnings: Pre-series speculation. No spoilers for the show.
Summary: What was the day like when Robin, Marian and Much first found their way into Sherwood Forest?
A/N: This is an entirely stand-alone excerpt from a far longer fic I wrote (which was abundantly full of flashbacks). I have decided to publish the flashbacks discreetly, for people who might wish to read them (but not an epic-ly long version of an alternate Season Three). And to make it easier for me to find them myself. Yes, I'm that vain, I like to re-read them from time to time b/c they make me happy.
*The only thing you need to know is that, unlike the series, Marian has an older brother, (my OC) Clem, nine years her senior. (Later, still pre-series, he will die as one of Richard's knights.)
