 I'm just gonna headcanon all missing fictional ladies as having navigational impairments. Possibly even if they're dead.

Not as an explanation for why they're missing, but just because there's no evidence to stop me. If I find evidence to stop me--like, "oh, she's a scientist "--it's usually because I'm too narrow-minded and should consider it CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

1. Ryoko is a BOSS!

2. Sasami, I think you are my favorite.

Cut for discussion/speculation about canon incest )

Episode 4 now! Mihoshi is coming! YAY!

 I'm now in season 3 of Soul Eater, which means:

--I've met Marie, and she is fabulous! LOOK HOW FABULOUS SHE IS!

Marie, lost )

--Death the Kid's favorite number is 8, because it divides evenly and is perfectly symmetrical. And guess how many main students are at Shibusen right now?:

I did this as an ordered list, even! Also, spoilers )

Eee! Bestill my polyshipping heart!

Heroes Arrive Last: Not-so-frequently asked questions:

What is this?

Heroes Arrive Last is my birthday party a fest celebrating characters who get lost easily or who have navigational disabilities. All types of work of all ratings are welcome, from original to fannish, including RPF. For a list of possible fannish characters, TV Tropes’s No Sense of Direction page is a good place to start. (It’s not exhaustive, though) There's also some discussion of characters in the comments of this brainstorming post.

Why?

I have a navigational disability; I also wanted something fun to do on my birthday!

When?

Now open for prompts! Linking to fanworks starts February 7. There’s no end date.

How can I participate?

You can leave prompts; you can make any type of work (fic, art, graphics, icons, meta, vids, recs, etc., etc.) There’s no minimum or maximum size requirement. Making something for a prompt isn’t required, however--indulge your own plot (etc.) bunnies, and post them/links to them. You can ask for recs; you can make/respond to love meme-style threads for different characters. You can do things I haven’t thought of!

There's also an AO3 collection.

I’d like some resources about navigational impairments, please!

Some articles about navigational impairments are here!

Anything else I should know?

Have fun! If you have any questions, you can ask them in the comments or PM me.

In honor of the fest celebrating easily lost characters, here are some resources about navigational impairments.
 

a list! for science! )

 

I'll explain more about how my navigation skills work in the comments; anyone who'd like is welcome to do the same/join in.

ETA Jan. 31: Now open for prompts! (Though hopefully posting fills/linking to fanworks should still start on February 7.)  Also, a more official-sounding FAQ, and some resources about navigational impairments.

I decided that I am going to have a celebration of characters with navigational impairments on my birthday! As such a thing is incredibly esoteric, it's a good idea to start planning now so anyone who wants to participate is comfortable enough to do so. Some thoughts so far:

Original and fannish work is welcome; it'll be open for prompts, but party guests don't have to use them. All types of work, from graphics to podfic to FSTs to filk to meta (I'm very ambivalent about something I'm reading right now!) are welcome, too. ETA: Also, recs! Favorite bits of canon!

Also, I'm collecting some resources about navigational impairments, which is a challenge. Navigation is a really complex process with a lot of skills involved (and lots of things that can go wrong); according to the stuff I'm reading, it's not very well-studied, either. Navigational disabilities are found in a bunch of different conditions like Alzheimer's disease, nonverbal learning disability, (one of my diagnoses), traumatic brain injury, etc. or by themselves, like in developmental topographic disorientation which was named within the last few years.

(The phrase "visual-spatial skills" is a pet peeve of mine. Visual skills and spatial skills are two incredibly broad and separate skillsets. It's possible to have no vision at all and a good sense of space; it's also possible to use vision for things most people use a sense of direction for. *waves*)

It's also good to reach out to people who might want to play! So I spent the day coming up with a pithy name and making promotional graphics:

I'm getting better with GIMP now )

Any questions? ideas? Complaints? (Especially if you'd like to play but aren't sure how to participate.) How can I help you have fun at this party? ETA: Signal-boosting welcome!

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Drop a link to your wish-list in this post. Maybe someone will grant a wish.


I'm actually...pretty comfortable wishing for things! Like:

Man, I am greedy )

There's also my wishlist for [community profile] eastasianfandomgiftbag (Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, Disgaea: A Promise Unforgotten, Excel Saga, Ga Rei: Zero, Ranma 1/2)
