It seems the Mashou and Kayura doujinshi well has run a bit dry lately. Meaning I can’t find any new ones to add to this site. So I’m addressing this to you my dear visitors. What other content to you want to see posted or shared here?
Here’s some of my ideas that I’ve been thinking about.
- Fanfiction blog posts:
Since I switched to WordPress and have a blog, I can make blog posts advertising/linking to Dark Warlord/Mashou and Kayura fanfic. I can tag these with character names, genre (horror, sci-fi, romance, comedy, tragedy, adventure, next generation/future, etc), give the author, have a small summary (that author submits hopefully) and a link to the fanfiction. May make it easier for us to find fics dedicated to these characters. Of course I would allow stories that have the Warlords/Mashou and Kayura with the Ronins/Troopers too. Though the fanfic, like this site, must be Warlord/Mashou and/or Kayura centric or at least have them playing a very big part in the story.
It’s been a long while since I’ve dipped into the fanfiction area so I would need to depend on submissions to do this.
- Fanart blog posts:
I can also use the blog to link to fanart I find online. Basically a copy of my Tumblr, but with the added advantage of using WordPress’ tags to make it easier (hopefully) for you to find a certain character or artist. Full credit will be given with the post.
- More merchandise images:
I do have some of the original Mashou toys, some model kits, etc. I can take pictures or scan some of those up. I have obvious gaps in my collection though and I’d need to find images online for whatever I’m missing.
The advantage to this is hopefully people will submit images, or links to images, of merchandise they have. Like the trading cards I’ve seen and obviously don’t own. Or cell images. Basically sharing around all our wonderful finds for other fans to see and drool over. And again credit to the person/their website/etc will be listed. 🙂
- Make Icons or Avatars:
I’d have to do some research on what sizes people need and find images to scan up, but other than that it should work fine. And again if other people have made these on their own, I can link to them and give credit.
Like I said these are just some ideas of mine. I’m hoping some of these ideas will lead to other fans submitting links to their work so that they can be posted here. That way other fans can find their work easier. And as you’ve certainly noticed the trend, I will give credit in any form that person wants. (Email, website, artwork website, blog, etc.)
Feel free to suggest your own ideas in the comments.
Thank you in advance!
