Though whether or not Novel Koushien or something like it will happen again is undetermined (that, of course, depends on you guys), just in case we'd like to hear what everyone thought. Just let us know your opinion, if you enjoyed yourself, and what might help you enjoy it more.

All feedback is welcome whether it be from participants, watchers, or anyone else who's taken interest. Though it might be helpful if you let us know which one of those you are.

If you're not sure what to say, some questions you might consider are under the cut. Thanks everyone!

And that concludes Novel Koushien 2010! Yay~

Community Word Count: 14,810
Community Completed Works - 27
Pairings Completed (Fic) - 13
Pairings Completed (Art) - 14

Though things quieted down and we went out with a bit of a whimper, I'm frankly impressed we even got you all here and making so many nice things at all. ^^ And no matter what way you slice it, you all definitely generated more Oofuri fanworks than the English Oofuri fandom has seen in quite a while! And I'm sure the boys appreciated all that attention.

As for our top performers...


Most Runs: ajthefourth (2) (6 submissions)
........Runners up kaoro (1 run, 4 subs), tomoe_daeva (1 run, 3 subs), choukaku (1 run, 2 subs)
Most Completed Fic: ajthefourth (4)
........Runners up 06seconds_left, kaoro, rueli (2)
Most completed Art: tomoe_daeva (3)
........Runners up ajthefourth, kaoro, choukaku (2)
Highest Total Wordcount: ajthefourth (5591)
........Runner up kaoro (2306)

As a reward to AJtheFourth and tomoe_daeva for their valliant efforts, they may if they so wish have their choice of 4 slaves volunteers to give them a little something back in return. (AJ, since you were top in 3 categories you may chose 3 people's offers, though of course if you don't care to you can always take less). Samples of the volunteers' work are linked.

rueli offers art (1 or 2 full-color character(s) [waist-up] with a very simple background. Nothing over PG13 (i.ei. No nudity or suggestive poses) please.)

daisy_chan offers podfic (with the understanding that she may not be able to get to it till possibly May), art (a wiggles drawlet (like this only less hastily drawn ;p;;), or a volume of the latest Oofuri tankoban when she's able to get her hands on it in May.

jinsunpyo_18 offers art or fic (sample Oofuri fic here). I have not gotten a chance to ask her yet what she has time/is willing to do, but I do happen to know she is shameless. (...Though ok, she finds the Oofuri boys rather too innocent to imagine them doing dirty things easily. ^^)

narwhaltorte offers art, fic, or choice of what Oofuri doujin she scanlates next. (With the understanding she has done the first two little enough there's basically no telling how long something could take her or what length or quality it will be when finished. ^^ As for the latter, she'd need a little time to collect the options to show you your choices. (Only one of them has anything pornish, though. ^^) Though if it's ok with them, you could probably also request she translate any of the doujin other scanlation groups have but that don't have translators.)

Comment to let us know who you'd like to claim and what you'd like to request!


Thanks to everyone who participated in Novel Koushien by helping to set the community and game structure up, contributed ideas, watched and commented on submissions, and of course especially to those who made the actual submissions for everyone to appreciate. I'm glad you didn't leave me to create an overambitious community and then sit all alone in it. I hope everyone had fun~

Stay tuned for the Novel Koushien feedback post and let us know how things went for you.

Now we really should hold hands. *points to comments*

The end of Novel Koushien is upon us!

To assure any final submissions are posted, please submit it before 12 AM CST Friday (that's Friday morning, aka MIDNIGHT THURSDAY, 22 hours from now).

We look forward to seeing your entries!

PS: Apologies for the lack of updating the fic/art master list. Now that things are coming to a close, I'll try to get on it!

As you may have guessed from the lateness of this post, no submissions for this inning. We've now entered the final inning of Novel Koushien, so if there's anything left you've been wanting to do, you've still got this one week left to try and make your last claims and submissions!

As we wind down, consider some suggestions or feedback you might leave for Novel Koushien in case we try it again. We'll have an official post for feedback after we finish!

That concludes submissions for the seventh inning! Just two more innings to go (and 12 days till the second season starts airing~)!

(Sorry for the lack of inning ending warning. Totally spaced it. ^_^;)

Sadly, no submissions to post this inning! Better luck next week!

Perhaps we shall spare ourselves the embarrassment of summing up an inning with two entries. ^_^ (Thank you both for not making it not-zero~ Hahaha.)

Instead, let us rejoice in the fact that the end of Novel Koushien will coincide quite nicely with the airing of the first episode in the second season of the anime. (If only the sub would “air” at an exact time, we could have a after party/chat watching it together. *sniff*) Yay~ Let anticipation fuel our efforts.

And remember, now that we are in the final month of Novel Koushien, each inning will now only be ONE WEEK long. The fifth inning, for example, will start now and end March 5th.

And that concludes the 3rd inning of Novel Koushien.

Pairings claimed this inning: 8 (42(!) overall, 6 pending expiration)
Submissions turned in this inning: 6 (23 overall)
Fanfiction: 1 (11 overall)
Fanart: 5 (12 overall)
Word count: 510 (13,067 overall)

Though average word counts in previous innings were either on track or exceeding the necessary amount to reach our 50k goal, the drop this inning takes even the overall average low enough that continuing at this average will mean we only make it to about 80% of our goal. The number of fanart submissions beat out fanfiction for the first time this inning (in both the numbers for this inning and for overall), however pairing claims and submissions turned in continues to drop. Hopefully everyone will be a little less busy after the holiday is over! Everyone have fun!
