Title: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Complete! Second post: Library Catalogue

Note: This is not extremely subtle propaganda for White Rose. It is not subtle at all, y'see. Hint: Look at the book Patchu is reading. :S

So I've had this idea going about in my head lately. It's so crazy that it just might work. Behold, the idea behind this all:

Quote from: Doctor Purvis MD
You want to drum up attention for people's stuff? (Get someone to) Write a <time period-based repetition> literary review of the works going on there. Give a quick summary, both of the story's events and the type of story, then link it. Then post it up in Math Class or Everything Else or wherever you think people need to see it. Maybe spotlight older works worthy of attention. It'll help people know what's what and what's interesting, and natural curiosity will follow.

Project name: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing

We are going to go through all (as of January 31st, 2010) nine pages' worth of fanworks here and list them as a directory. It will give a title, link the piece, and give a short summary and genre list. Here's an example of what I have in mind:

Sweet Dreams (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=4587.0)
Author: Sakura Rurouni
Status: Unfinished
Genre: Drama, mystery
Summary: This is stupid don't read it

So far, the only people working on this are me and Moe Moe Sakana Katana (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1079). Right now, we're working on a preliminary listing of names and writers. Nine pages' worth of fanworks is nothing to laugh at, but this task will be substantially easier if we can get help from you, the userbase. (Some of these fiction pieces are so long that I fear brain implosion if we do this on our own.)

Everyone is welcome to help, no matter if you're an experienced member or a complete newbie. The only thing I ask is that no writers submit their own summaries, as we want to keep this as unbiased as possible. There are two ways you can help:

1. Submit summaries of fanfiction in this thread, using the format shown above.
2. Join this project team by PMing me or Sakana. After we get ourselves more organized, I will send out a PM indicating which fics you are to read and summarize. This is mostly because of fics like White Rose or Frame of the Undying Fortitude, which are multi-chapter epics that I cannot expect to be read and summarized in a few minutes like oneshots can.

Unless you want to see me and Sakana turn into undead literary zombies, you are welcome to help any way you can, as this is a rather difficult task and we really need the help.

Current list of project members:
Sakura Rurouni (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=142) - Project leader, please defer to me for assignments/decisions
Sakana Katana (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1079) - Project leader when I am not around, please defer to him accordingly
Roukanken (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=85)
SenSageUn (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=206)
Chaore (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1587)
Copyright (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1474)

Esifex (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1413)



List of tasks (tentative):
- Getting organized
- Preliminary listing
- Sorting (mostly between short fiction and long fiction; some stories are one shots and some are epic tales that span five pages, etc)
- Reading everything (we are here)
- ???
- Let's Tour MotK!

If you do not want your fanwork listed here, please PM me or Sakana with your request to have it removed (and therefore remain unlisted) and I will do so, no questions asked. People who don't say anything to me get NOTHING changed, your sorrow is pathetic compared to my amusement at your expense, etc etc.

Note: Not all the stuff in fanworks is actually fanfiction. There will be categories for visual arts, musical arts, and miscellaneous stuff later.

Edit: I will lock this thread until tomorrow so Sakana can have the second post, which will probably be where the listing will be when it's all done. Hee! Hi, Sakana o/

The Grand List of MotK Fanworks
Current as of: April 26, 2014

-----

IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all stories belong to only one genre. Any story with more than one genre has been placed into the general genre heading that it most closely belongs to, but it has all of the other genres listed, with a double pound mark in front of them. For example, if a drama story has action and mystery elements, it will be listed in the Drama section, with a specific genre listing of "Drama, ##Action, ##Mystery". This way, you can use your browser's text search function to make sure you catch all the stories belonging to a specific genre instead of missing out on all the ones that weren't placed into the genre section you checked!

Action Stories

Author: A-F
Genre: Action, ##Drama, ##Crossover
Summary: The population of Japan has been used as breeding stock for Gensokyo for years - a few people at a time, over the decades, are spirited away via Yukari's gaps.

She gathers Reimu and a few select others to accompany her to Japan with a survivor from the zombie uprising to uncover some surprising answers. Being a Left 4 Dead crossover fic, expect to see lots of zombies, including the Special Infected.

Holy god are those ALL of the lit fanworks? O_O I was kind of thinking I would set up a GoogleDocs or something, but that works too.

@ Moe Moe Sakana Katana (I'm sorry, I can't help but type that): We have six people working on this. As much as I would love to have lots more help, I also fear for my management skills. It's going to be quite difficult to work with a larger group. How does a cap of seven sound?

If anyone else really wants to help, they can just send in summaries directly (which would be incredibly useful, actually). The whole point of this team is to burrow deep into Patchurry's Printing Press Scarlet Library and review the works that people don't really want to summarize or haven't seen.

Note: Thanks to forum reorganization, we no longer really have to deal with art and music stuff. We can worry about those a later time. Yay!

Also, reserving this post for later changelog. I use Mountain Standard Time, if you must know.

Yes, those are all of the fanworks. Took me a good two hours just to make that list, but it should be worth it.

Sure, seven people is a good number.
Same goes for people sending summaries directly to you.
I suppose it will be especially the longer works that will be the work of our team, but we'll see.

Which means we have one free slot right now! We're still recruiting, so sign up fast and join the librarians! We have free tea!

Post by: Alfred F. Jones on February 01, 2010, 07:04:23 PM
Right-o. Here's what I'm planning so far:

As soon as I get home I'll start organizing the main fanworks list into six or seven smaller lists and assign each of you one to read. Ideally, no more than one really long work should be in each list, but it depends on how many we've got.

Also, I think we should make a special note for Genre: Short Story Collection, as I know Rou and I seem to be fond of writing those. :toot: Some of the fics in there are serious, some are tragedies, etc. No way to categorize them all. We'll leave that to the writers themselves if they want.

And my stance on fiction with images is something like this: If it has a plot, it's a story, so it belongs here. Exceptions can be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, though.

I'm pretty sure that won't work, there were more than six really long works there  :V

Also, should I add links to the titles before you split the list?
Might be a pain to find the works on one's list without that.

Augh, you're right! D: Hmm, but now that I look at it more closely, I see Sweet Dreams listed as "long", which puzzles me because I think it's short. >_> What standards did you use for categorizing them? More than two pages is the only thing that strikes me as qualifying for "long". (Also hi UD and Mima. I SEEEEEE YOUUUU.)

And yes, please add links. I have to run off to class soon or I would help out with this. :x

I also request that Sakana give this initiative a Scary German WordsTM title, else I shall be tempted to take this project too seriously. :S

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 01, 2010, 07:30:41 PM
What standards did you use for categorizing them?
Arbitrariness, to be honest  :V
I only scouted over the pages briefly and decided on the number and lenght of posts and text density.
Short should take <15 min. Medium 15-30 min. and long >30 minutes, or something like that.

Hm, a German name....let's see....how about that:

Patchouli's Helfer ~ Der wunderbar magische Bibliothekstrupp
(Patchouli's helpers ~ the wonderful magical library troup)

Second idea:
Abenteuer Motk-Bibliothek ~ J?ger der verlorenen Werke
(MotK-library adventure ~ hunters of the lost works)

(It's not scary, but I didn't know how I should have fit 'Blitzkrieg' in  :V
Also, I'm uncreative with names <_<  )

Alright, off to linking works now. Farewell, next two hours of my life~

/me dashes off into the dephts of the library again


*An hour later*

/me dashes back, chased by some flying fanworks trying to bite him

Ahhhh, someone save m.... oh, they gave up. Good.

Phew, alright, I got us links for every work in the library on our list.
And while I was at it, I found some stray works that must have strolled in recently, and added them to the list.
Look, some song parodies. No need to worry, those don't bite, you can pet them. There, there~

Oh well, you're getting my summaries soon enough. Someone shoot me a PM and list what stories have already been summarized - I have gone through a whole bucketload of the shortfics here on MotK, and can recall most of them well enough to summarize without a re-read. And those that I can't? Well, the only thing better than enjoying a story with a cup of tea after work is enjoying it again.

Actually, I've been waiting for you. :S You're the one person I'm highly willing to make an exception for, precisely because you've read like every fic here ever. Consider yourself recruited, Esifex.

I just got blindsided by a bio assignment that's going to eat up all my time tonight, so I'll post this publicly and get it out of the way so Sakana can see this when he wakes up and organize you accordingly.

Summary guidelines:

For a short fic, one or two sentences, maybe three. For a medium-sized fic, three to five. For one of the scary epic tales (White Rose, Flame of the Undying Fortitude, Any UD Fic Ever), five or six.

However, it's really up to you how wordy they should be. As long as your summary gets the general idea of the fic, it's all cool.

Except I already did something stupid and wrote up summaries for a couple of stories because I misread the post and didn't realize I was supposed to be assigned stories to read (and write summaries about) instead of just choosing a story from the list to write about. (Which means that I just chose a story from the list and wrote about it ;_;)
and I don't think I did the genre part right either

*Yawn* Awake again. Yeah, you only came back when it was 1:30 am here, Sakura, couldn't stay awake that long.

Oh, the team is complete, I see.

Welcome aboard Tyltalis and Esifex!  :D

Thanks for taking the time to edit the list, Sakura, guess we're almost ready to go then.

Before the big summarizing starts, I'd suggest that we try to come up with a list of genres that we want to use for classifying the fics.
Because I know that I will have a lot of trouble coming up with the right genre names, and maybe other people will as well.

Also, should we set a standard of which file-types to use when we upload the summaries in a file?
I think .rtf like Tyltalis did it is alright.

Tyltalis: It's no problem that you already summarized something, quite the contrary.
After a quick look, the summaries look good, bonus points for adding the tags for formatting the text.
Even more bonus points for taking one really long work. Good, job, recruit! o7


Only thing is, I don't think we need a 'Fantasy' genre. Because we're talking about Touhou-Fanfiction here, which is 99% Fantasy by definition.
Actually, a 'Reality' Genre might be more useful  :V


I guess we'll have to wait until Sakura has the time to make clear which of the works belong on the list and which don't.

But as that may still take some time, I'll ask a question to everyone:


Which fics have you already read and can remember well?

Depending on the answers we may organize the to-do-list for everyone accordingly.
(Unless Sakura decides that we will force everyone to read something new :3 )

SenSageUn already said he has read UD's work, so I'd like to leave those in his care.
Esifex seems to have read pretty much everything, so I declare him our secret weapon in terms of fic knowledge.



Lastly: Once summaries start coming in, I'll update the big list regularly (which means several times a day probably).
I'll mark all the works that have been done in blue in lime green, because it's a nice soothing color to mark our successes  :D
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 02, 2010, 07:25:12 AM
Alright everyone, tea time is over!

Empty your cup of tea and line up over there.

I've gotten permission from leader Sakura to handle the assignment of works to each of you, and will do so right now.
That means you can ignore the question I asked before about who had read what, I'll simply assign more UD works to SenSageUn, the rest of us will be victims of randomization.
I'll of course look to it that everyone has about the same amount of work to do.

However, some things have not yet been cleared up, so stay tuned for changes:
-The file format we will use, please use .rtf or .txt for now, that should be best for everyone, or send the summaries to me or Sakura via PM
-The inclusion of some works. I will not include works into your lists that have still a 'Included?' Note on them, so those will be assigned later once their status is clear
-Handling of Short Story compilations. Leave those for last for now.
-The genres we will use. I suppose we can go with some standard ones for now:
>Drama
>Humor/ Comedy
>Parody (includes Crossover's I'd say)
>Action
>Romance
>Mystery
>Short Stories

NO >Fantasy genre for now
MAYBE >Reality if you find a fitting work.

As for genres I may have missed (which I surely have), simply make suggestions here and I will include them if they seem good.

An example for how the summaries are to be done can be found in the first post.

What I wrote above applies for the freelance summarizers as well, those who are not part of the team but want to submit work as well. It doesn't matter if we have multiple summaries for one work in the end, the more material we have the better our project will turn out.


That should be everything. You will receive your assignment lists via PM soon.
If there's still questions about how to handle something, post here or PM Sakura or me.

/me hands everyone a list, pen and paper and a duster

Alright, now the battle begins.
It'll be a rough ride out there, but stay strong.
That duster will be the only thing for you to defend yourselves out there.
Don't split up, or you'll get lost in the dephts of the library.
Always watch your back, some of the bigger works like to bite.
Don't take the song parodies and shorts back home, even if they are cute.
Stay tuned for mission updates.
And most of all, HAVE FUN!

/me points into the darkness ahead

Mission: Let's Tour MotK, heading out.

Librarian Squad, Charge!!!

List updatd with Tengukami's newest thread 'Down On The Corner'.

I'll not add new works to anyone's assignment list, we'll deal with them once the current batch is done.

Also, this work reminded me of one thing: Please add >NSFW to the genres or information on the works as well, everyone.

EDIT: Oh, right, another information on genres:
You may use multiple genres for a single work.
There may be some that combine >Comedy and >Action, for example.

I'd say we try and keep it at a maximum of three genres per work.

Mmk, I managed to steal a school computer long enough for me to finish this.

Another Dream Issues 6A and 6B: They should be included, but they're also impossible to summarize, because the stories are by various authors and some are fanfiction while others are doujins. A link to both of the relevant threads should be fine.

Aki Sisters Appreciation Anthology, Mizuhashi Parsee Anthology: A link should suffice under the "Other" category, because there's no actual content within the threads themselves, but they lead to content and discussion.

Creative Musings and Inspiration: Should be listed under "Others", and its summary should just be "Post your story ideas here!"

And I think that's it for the iffy threads.

As for the work itself: I am amazed at how fast you folks seem to be working on this. I don't think school will let up on me for at least another two days, though. :/ Sakana, you're doing a great job coordinating all of this, keep it up.

My summaries will be done in large batches and just mass-dumped on one of the two SKs via PM - I'm working nearly 12 hour days 6 days a week right now. I wake up and leave for work before the sun comes up, and I get off the clock after the sun goes down.

Doesn't mean I won't stop and read, though - just give me a day or so to burn through the stories that've been assigned to me and you'll find the correlating summaries floating around your inboxes (as I plan to inflate them with helium)

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 03, 2010, 07:14:41 AM
Alrighty, list updated with the already summarized works and two new additions (reading all that fiction got you into the mood for writing again, Rou?  ;))

A note for the ones who have been given compilations of short works to summarize:

-If it's only a small number of works (maybe up to four), please try to summarize them individually (especially if they are linked

-If there's many works, then have a look at them and do a general summary of what kind of stories the reaer may expect. Chaos did on KimikoMuffin's fiction thread a very good job with this method, like this:

Quote
Summary: This is a massive list of works by the Author KimikoMuffin, master of puns and silly references. Muffin manages to create a Gensokyo of his own to explore and define, taking stories you've heard before and doing them over.


Other than that, keep at it, you're all doing wonderful work  :D
And you don't have to rush things if you're busy, we've got lots of time.
In fact, I believe the last one to submit all of his summaries will be me, as I haven't even gotten to starting yet  :V

MISSION UPDATE:

I hereby declare February 4th, that is, tomorrow, to be Patchouli-Day.
As such, every member of the Librarians is asked to change their avatar to a Chibi-Patchy for 24 hours starting midnight at my place.
Whoever hasn't done so at that point shall be victim to abuse of the temporary powers that I will potentially gain at this time :3

Also, I cannot guarantee that there will be no victims outside of the Librarians', be warned :3




PROJECT RELEVANT EDIT: Fanwork list was updated with the 'Other' section. The works there will be included in the final listing, but do not need summaries.

Granted, I got lucky; one of the fanworks on my list of assignments is one I've already read, Subconscious Dream. Hell, I was Gpop's proofreader. Koishi is <3. (Granted, one of the other ones is Valesta's Thought's End...)

Hey, does this mean that you all have to put on Shiki avatars for my birthday in two weeks? :3
Have a nice day then~

In two weeks? Cool. You could actually fool around without it being your birthday as a mod, but sure. I wouldn't mind Shiki.

May I make a suggestion, wrt submission guidelines?

Perhaps from here on out, writers should include a summary with each submission. Would certainly make your lives easier.

You could even encourage those who have submitted so far to write their own summaries. 
Just a thought.

As much as I appreciate your concern, writers writing summaries for their own stories is exactly what we did not want.
There is always a risk of an author making their own work look especially good, intended or unintended, and we want the list to be as objective as possible.
We decided on this right at the start, and that's why we will keep the system as it is now.  :)

And, speaking for myself, I don't mind checking out and summarizing new works and keeping the list updated once we're done with the current workload.
It's a nice and fun way of doing something useful for the community, and I'd love to keep this job.  :D

Of course, the final decision on how we will handle updating the list in the future also depends on MTG, since she is responsible for the creativity boards now.
And concerning that: Congratulations on your new position, Gappy  :D




EDIT: And speaking of updates, a new work was added to the list right now.

I hereby declare February 4th, that is, tomorrow, to be Patchouli-Day.
As such, every member of the Librarians is asked to change their avatar to a Chibi-Patchy for 24 hours starting midnight at my place.
Whoever hasn't done so at that point shall be victim to abuse of the temporary powers that I will potentially gain at this time :3
Does this qualify? Asking now so I have time to change later. >_>

I was thinking that way myself, but there are some problems that arise when you think about how this could be implemented.

First: If the summary is in the thread itself, then you'd have to go to that story itself to read its summary. The nice part about this listing is that it's a go-to directory for all these other pieces of fiction, where we assume that you haven't read a given story yet, and you don't have to go into the fic itself to find the summary thereof.

The second reason is a touch more cynical: A lot of people don't finish writing their fics. They have a good idea of what the story is going to look like, but they just plain never get there. The writer knows the summary for their own fic, but if they never finish it, then there may be some things in the summary that haven't shown up in the fiction proper and likely never will.*

And lastly: I tend to trust the recommendations of my peers more than I would an author who wants to promote themselves. This last one is purely subjective, though, and I don't think it applies to everyone. That's just my view.

And yeah, it helps us feel like we're doing something useful for the community. =]

@ Sakana: I asked Zucchini Sukima to help you guys out with post editing powers and the like if you need them while I'm not around, and she said yes. I think we're fine on that front.

* This brings up a good point, come to think of it: the current summary of Sweet Dreams, for example, lists it as a comedy/drama, which it is, so far. However, my current plot for it will turn it into a drama/
tragedy
, so.... are we going to update these periodically?

Well, to this, the summaries could be PM'd to one of you librarian people.

The second reason is a touch more cynical: A lot of people don't finish writing their fics. They have a good idea of what the story is going to look like, but they just plain never get there. The writer knows the summary for their own fic, but if they never finish it, then there may be some things in the summary that haven't shown up in the fiction proper and likely never will.*

To this, a summary requirement on unfinished pieces would be that it must cover only what has been told in the story so far (summaries seldom give away endings anyway), and that it be lablled "UNFINISHED"

And lastly: I tend to trust the recommendations of my peers more than I would an author who wants to promote themselves. This last one is purely subjective, though, and I don't think it applies to everyone. That's just my view.

And yeah, it helps us feel like we're doing something useful for the community. =]

Now this, I can see. That makes total sense, as was pointed out before.

Anyways, you guys are doing a bang-up job. Keep up the good work!
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 03, 2010, 08:30:08 PM
Hehe, thanks Tengukami. Your concern is very much appreciated.
The authors PMing us the summaries would be a way indeed. But a potential problem would be that new writers would have to read and remember that they are required to do so, and frankly, I think many would not do it at once. And if we have to poke people for their summaries, we might as well save them the trouble and do it ourselves, enjoying some (hopefully) good ficiton in the process.   :)

Other than that, Sakura's words pretty much sum up our stance.
My vision for the future is that, once the big list is done, Sakura and I will remain in charge of updating the list regularly and writing new summaries.
I said it before, but I really want to keep that job  :D
(Hey, if we do a good job, maybe we'll get a Librarian tag one day  ;) )

@Sakura:
It's good to know MTG (or Gappy, or Sukima... how many names does she have?  (o_0) ) supports us. I don't think any post editing powers will be neccesary, since the only thing for me to edit is the list, and that's my post, but now I know where to turn if need arises.

As for your question on changing genres: I don't see a problem with that. It will simpy require us to not only read new fictions, but also additions to existing ones. I doubt it will be that much extra work, and there won't be that many fics where a new genre needs to be added, so we should be able to deal with it.


Lastly: I highly approve of Rou's and Chaore' Patchys. Good job  ;D

This is a good point, In fact, it may even end up more apt to summarize things differently at different points. We should at least, ponder if things should be changed after each update of a fiction, or have it so authors or others inform us when they think we may want to second check our current summaries.

Hell, when works finish, we're already going to have to update the status. It kinda seems like a redundant question.

(Hey, if we do a good job, maybe we'll get a Librarian tag one day  ;) )

This seems a bit silly, I'm not saying I'm calling it quits, But past the massive load, the community fan works kind of updates slowly. An entire group might be overkill once everything is summarized and done. Sadly, I don't think the Super Librarian Rangers will last past that. >:

Also, yes, keeping all of the group after that is too much, that's why I proposed Sakura and I will be in charge of future updates (unless she doesn't want to/ is too busy).
I think two, maximum three, people staying on the job is enough, and I wanna be one of them  ;D

You mean that the summary should be revised completely when a fic changes direction drastically?
Hm, yeah, that sound like the best way, same goes for your idea of authors informing us about big changes.

Kinda. Mostly, when the summary is just too small and focusing to include the full scale. If a summary just over all fits the setting of the first chapter only and the fic increases in size drastically, it obviously needs to be considered and redone.

A good example would be Mad Magic, it seems like a drama currently, but apparently Stein intended (Or intends) to take it in a whodunnit direction. If he hadn't added that, it'd be more of a 'Blank died.' than 'Blank died, but why?'. Certainly, when a fic expands into a new direction, that tends to count.

This is the kind of situation I'm mostly reffering to with summaries.

Post by: Tengukami on February 03, 2010, 09:50:41 PM
Yeah, I think that's why an "Unfinished" tag is warranted.

Also: are you librarians going to alphabetize? By title or author? Both? Sort by genre?

Not trying to add to your workload, just genuinely curious. And a bit excited.

Sorting on the final list is going to be alphabetically by author, that's what Sakura decided when we started.

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 03, 2010, 10:52:32 PM
Summaries won't go public before they're all done, which might still take a week or longer, depending on how busy we all are.
After that, we'll have to look over all the summaries to check the genres that were used and the formatting, for example, which might also take some time.

I also can't say yet whether the summaries will be in this thread as well, replacing the list that we have now, or if there will be a whole new thread for the complete list. That's up to Sakura to decide, I'd say.

Arrr, dammit. Seems Birthday Powers are invoked depending on the server time, not local time...which makes sense, actually.

MISSION UPDATE: When looking through my assignment list and checking the works on there just now, I realized that I messed up on UsuallyDead's works.

I assumed that all his threads were for one of his stories, but saw now that his works (except one iirc) are all part of 'Retelling of Oriental Stories', which I listed as a work in itself.

As far as I can see it right now, not all of the works in this series had respective threads here, so only some were assigned for summarizing. There's ten works in total that fall under 'Retelling of Oriental Stories'. I will see to it that I update the list as soon as possible with all of UD's works in the series and will leave them for anyone to summarize.

'Retelling of Oriental Stories' has been divided into its respective stories and added to the list.
Except for the last three stories, none of those are assigned to anyone.

My reputation precedes me - it's been said that I may as well have read everything here, but, truthfully, I haven't - I only recently joined MotK and started prowling the fanworks forum. I haven't had a chance to dig through the earlier pages of the works, and now that everything is being shuffled around, I'm starting to prowl through it.

I'm pretty sure I already mentioned, for example, that I've never read any the stories on my assignment list yet.
That is rapidly changing, however.

Author: A-F
Status: Unfinished
Genre: Drama, mystery
Summary: The alternate telling of the Yama of Gensokyo: Shikieiki Yamaxanadu's life before Gensokyo. Entwining the legacy of Old Hell, before the downsizing and formation of Makai and Higan, to the disappearance of Oni-kind and centering on the legacy of the Yama who will become the unsung heroine of all times. A worthy read if you are patient, and certainly if you like Shikieiki and lots of drama.

Unfortunately, no.

As much as we appreciate your contribution, we decided that summaries are not to be done by the authors of the works themselves (it should be in the opening post as well).
That is to assure the summaries are not biased in any way, please understand.

However, we at least can use the genres you have given us, so it helps a bit.  :)

It is busier. Having our own forum was a great idea.

Also, currently outlining a new story. Work gives me lots of free time, heh. My method is:

1. Write outline. 2. Handwrite story with pencil and paper. Handwriting takes longer than typing, but that's the point - helps me really think about the story as I write, making changes as needed. Often, this means trimming plot details out. And using pencil is cleaner when it comes to changes.
3. Type it up. Minor edits are done at this stage.

Announcement to the Librarian crew:

While I was working on my assigned summaries, the need for different "status" terms occurred to me. I didn't want the only two statuses to be Incomplete and Complete; that doesn't give me enough information. So here's a thought:

Complete: Exactly what it sounds like. Note that this is different from Ended.
Ended: When the author posts a final update, saying that "I will no longer update this". Valesta's Thought's End is a good example.
Stalled: When the writer says they're taking a break and doesn't come back to the piece for a month or longer. Note that the only thing that separates this from Ended is that they at least state their intent to return. However, if this continues for six months, it goes to Permanent Hiatus.
Incomplete: Fics with a constant rate of updating. Updating at least once a month is enough to receive this designation.
Sporadically Updated: This designation exists because of short story threads, which most writers tend to update whenever the hell they feel like it. (I know I'm like this, and Rou, Benny1, etc tend to show signs of this too.)
Halted: When a fic is forcibly ended because the writer has been banned. Can and should overlap with Permanent Hiatus.
Permanent Hiatus: Should only be given to works that have not updated in six months or longer. It's a politically correct way of saying "this fic is dead". :|

Is this a good idea, yes or no?

While I was working on my assigned summaries, the need for different "status" terms occurred to me. I didn't want the only two statuses to be Incomplete and Complete; that doesn't give me enough information. So here's a thought:

Complete: Exactly what it sounds like. Note that this is different from Ended.
Ended: When the author posts a final update, saying that "I will no longer update this". Valesta's Thought's End is a good example.
Stalled: When the writer says they're taking a break and doesn't come back to the piece for a month or longer. Note that the only thing that separates this from Ended is that they at least state their intent to return. However, if this continues for six months, it goes to Permanent Hiatus.
Incomplete: Fics with a constant rate of updating. Updating at least once a month is enough to receive this designation.
Sporadically Updated: This designation exists because of short story threads, which most writers tend to update whenever the hell they feel like it. (I know I'm like this, and Rou, Benny1, etc tend to show signs of this too.)
Halted: When a fic is forcibly ended because the writer has been banned. Can and should overlap with Permanent Hiatus.
Permanent Hiatus: Should only be given to works that have not updated in six months or longer. It's a politically correct way of saying "this fic is dead". :|

Is this a good idea, yes or no?

Good. :V

I kinda did this, using 'Unfinished', 'In Progress', and 'Finished'. Totally support a formal version.

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 05, 2010, 08:54:12 PM
Yep, those new statuses are usefull. We should use those from now on.
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Tengukami on February 05, 2010, 09:03:35 PM
I think the statuses are a good idea. Could I suggest simplifying them though? Some are quite similar - e.g., Stalled, Permanent Hiatus and Halted. How about:

Complete - The story is done.
Ended Unfinished - The story is left undone and will not be completed.
To Be Continued - The story is left undone and will be completed later.
Updated - The story is updated, regularly, semi-regularly, or occasionally.

?

Just my two cents.

EDIT: I know I'm not a librarian and yet I keep piping up in here. Hope I'm not butting in on staff stuff only.

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 05, 2010, 09:14:51 PM
Every opinion is gratiously accepted and treated equally, Tengukami.

Librarians is just the name of the unlucky persons who were the fastest to react to Ruro's and my asking for help and were hit with loads of work in response  :V

Yes, the categories may be too detailed, but I think we should see how many fics fall under all the categories Ruro made once we summarized everything.
And if one category only contains two or three works then, we may drop it and add those to another similar category.
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Alfred F. Jones on February 05, 2010, 09:28:22 PM
excellent suggestions

Sure, those sound good. Sakana and I will probably work on streamlining all of this once we get all the summaries in. And yes, feel free to give us suggestions; a good idea is a good idea regardless of who it comes from. I just used "to the librarian crew" as an indication that these people in particular should pay attention, but anyone is free to give us ideas. We want audience participation, after all; we're doing this for the readers' benefit to begin with.

Post by: Serp on February 05, 2010, 09:51:46 PM
I think that Stalled and Permanent Hiatus are distinct enough that they ought to get their own separate entries.  Might also motivate authors to get back to writing if they don't want their work to be listed as dead. :3

Also, I think it might be a good idea to expand the Length parameter beyond the current three values.  The number of pages it takes up in Microsoft Word would be more useful.
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!

Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 05, 2010, 09:59:57 PM
I said it before, the lengths were decided arbitrarily :V

I'm welcoming every idea on how to describe the lengths more objectively.
From your two suggestions, I like word count more, because I myself wouldn't have any idea how long one page in MS Word is.

Hope y'all like the new, pre-emptive birthday avatar I picked.
Bad Apple Shadow Art is always good.

And to not fall behind, I have prepared something as well, even if Ruro's birthday is still a bit away.

I'll leave it up to Ruro to chose which one of those shall be my next avatar:
(http://i853.photobucket.com/albums/ab98/Twilight0402/Shiki_tuna_flailing.png) [size=8]VS[/size] (http://i853.photobucket.com/albums/ab98/Twilight0402/Shiki_transparent_tuna_small.png)

(Excuse the stray pixel on the first image. I have no idea where it comes from as it only appears after I upload the image, but doesn't exist when I try to erase it >_<




And now back to topic with an important notice:

One of the summarizers had problems with four of his works and has asked if someone else can take them.
So here are the works in question which are now free for everyone to take:


Name:      Welcome, to My Delusion (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=471.0)
Author:   Zer0Axiom
Length:   Short

Name:      The Twilight Spark Zone (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=1862.0)
Author:   Stein
Length:   Long

Name:      Touhou Kuroneko ~ The Black Cat from the Outside World (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=346.0)
Author:   [K] Merlin Prismriver
Length:   Medium

Name:      Rou's Random Shorts (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=1681.0)
Author:   Roukanken
Length:   Long, contains a lot of small works


Ruro has already implied that she will probably take Touhou Kuroneko.

What Sakana said: Shikieiki had the most awesome appearance in the Bad Apple shadow art video. Yuka was a close second.

I choose the first avatar: It's cuter and adorable and I love it. :3 (But why do all of your avatars have a fish in it?)

I'll take Kuroneko and Random Shorts, myself. I've still got Apocalypse Awakening and Thought's End to get around to doing, but I've read Kuroneko already and I want to enjoy more of Rou's short stories, so \o\

It shall be done. Right now, that is, because I like it a lot as well :3

As for the fish: That's me, more or less. And I plan to use it in every avatar I'll have in the future. Look up Sakana in a Japanese dictionary and be surprised :3
That combined with my first IRC session led to the creation of the Fish-Sword.


Also, I guess I'll have a look at 'Welcome, to my Delusion'. I can do a short work right now.

That means Twilight Spark Zone is still open.

Okay, so chief Zucchima is working on making Ijiatsu an MotK-wide project (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=5007.0) now. Since I support this development, here's some notes concerning us librarians and our work:

-Ijiatsu work that may pop up in the future should either get an 'Ijiatsu'-genre, or maybe someday even a separate category (depending on how much it will become)

-Roukanken: To make a good start, how about you take your Ijiatsu-short-stories and give them a thread here in the library?

-Lastly, I'm tempted to make our Librarian Squad part of the Ijiatsu world, if noone minds. We could work on an Ijiatsu-depiction of our group together and make it a short-story or something. It sounds fun~



EDIT: And here we go. First Ijiatsu work by TranceHime, work #102 on our list. I'll add an extra section for Iji-works on the list for now.
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Tengukami on February 09, 2010, 07:54:04 PM
Guess what: I have another question!

I was thinking - being able to post our writing, and read the works of others in one forum, is really fantastic. And I'm really impressed with the hard work you librarians are taking up in cataloguing everything so neatly.

But what I'm wondering is, how about a general fiction discussion thread? You know, the kind of thread where we talk about influences, sources of inspiration, writing methods, work habits and so on.

I think it would be a great way for the community to gel, for newer writers to get tips from older ones, and for everyone to get turned on to writers and processes we never heard of.

What say ye?

Alrighty, three updates:

- First of all, new work by Tengukami added

- Second, Ijiatsu works are numbered with #IJI- for now, to prevent confusion in the counting

- Third, the library now has 'Koakuma's Writer's Parlour' as a general discussion thread, enjoy it~

That was a really awesome idea =D Now that fiction has been split off into its own board, we can afford to do that, it'd be excellent. The only objection off the top of my head is that it might lessen reader response posts in the fiction threads themselves, but it doesn't have to be that way. Hmm, now I'm getting to thinking.

Very yes. The librarians begin to write up a massive story to inspire a growth in intelligence, to fight the Idiot Energy. Unfortunately it has the opposite effect by somehow killing brain cells.

The first ... anniversary? of my grandfathers passing is this Friday, which I'll be working, then probably drowning myself in World of Warcraft, and the Thursday before I'll be off from work but probably visiting him.

In either case, I'm gonna be too mentally screwed up to read and summarize anything for ... probably the rest of the week. I really miss him, and it still tears me up to think about Granpa.

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 10, 2010, 07:24:36 AM
Chaos: I always keep the list updated with finished summaries as soon as I ca after I receive them, so if something is not green and is in the 'unassigned works' section, then you can take it. Or you just take work from fellow librarians like Esifex ^^

Esifex: Take a rest for now, sounds like you have some hard days ahead of you.



As for Ijiatsu-Librarians: We don't need to draw anything. If someone of us can do it, nice, otherwise we'll just write about ourselves until we threaten impress one of the artists enough to draw us.

My first thoughts were this: The Librarian Squad is a group devoted to gathering all written works in the world of Ijiatsu into their library. To do that, they roam the land day and night in search of new works and don't even hesitate to break into someone's house if he has written something. If you write something in Ijiatsukai, you should always make a copy, because no matter how well you try to hide it, the Librarians will find it and take it for their collection.
In their daily life, the Librarians consist of members of different species and statuses. There are some powerful members that fight in the 'Incident', for example Ruro and Rou, while others are just normal humans/ youkai/ werefish.

We could have a lot of fun with writing about how everyone became a member of the Librarians, and how the Squad came into existance in the first place.
What Esifex suggested about the Librarians writing to boost intelligence, that might be a way we can link our group to the events of the 'Incident' (it could also be that this is how the Librarians' try to support Ruro and Rou, who are fighting the idiocy actively).

And lastly: #103 added to the list

EDIT: Copyright reported in. List updated again. So much green~

More EDIT: The stupid guy with the fish couldn't hold back on the self-insert-fest, so we have a new Ijiyatsu-entry on the list as well (>_<)

Even More EDIT: Two more greens added thanks to Chaos~
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 10, 2010, 09:38:15 PM
Okay, here's an order for everyone:

Since it seems my start into the Ijiyatsu world is received pretty well, I would like for everyone to think about what they want their character in the Librarian Squad to be like. Because that would be important when I, or someone, wants to write more about the Librarian Squad.
(And it would help Sukima as reference material, who will likely be the one to draw a picture of our Squad for us, if we behave nicely  ;) )

So if you have any ideas or wishes what your character should be like (species, habits, personality, powers...), then write that down and maybe post it in the Librarian Stories thread I made.You could also make it a story if you want, everything is welcome.
If you don't want to do that, or don't care, then your character will be subject to author arbitrariness once they appear in any story. ;D

Okay, in light of recent events, I have decided to take the Ijiyatsu-category out again and have numbered the two works from this category normally as works #107 and #108.
I would suggest a new genre named 'MotK' for stories based on this forum to label works like those two.

This doesn't mean our personification of the Librarians has ended, quite the contrary. The fun's just about to start >:3

Start posting the summaries that have been completed, and let the Librarians finish sending in the rest.

Better to have a few of 'em up so the people browsing the Library have SOME kind of ideas as to what each story is about, rather than a promise and hot air.
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 14, 2010, 07:16:42 AM
Esifex: While your proposal sounds reasonable, it has a flaw: The list of summaries will have to be done by Ruro and me, but we two are also the ones who still have stuff to read, so it might rather delay the completion a bit.

I'd say we go with deadline:
Exactly three days from now, Tuesday midnight. At that time, I vow I will have completed all my summaries, and so should everyone who has some left.
And someone please take care of the still unassigned works as well!
After that, we'll start to go over the summaries and check for consistent formatting/ use of genres and so on.
That won't take too long I hope, since everyone has been working diligently.

If we do so, we should have the final list with all summaries up until next Friday.
That's the plan, and we're gonna go through with it.


EDIT: Deadline has been extended to exactly one week from now. Next Saturday, at midnight, the list shall be drenched in green. Work on the final listing will probably take place Sunday then.
It's a more reasonable schedule then before, since I ignored that not everyone has holidays like I do here >_<

I see you've gotten used to your new powers already, Rou and Chaore. Nice work.
Also, thanks to Tyltalis for sending two more summaries (one for a work that wasn't even on the list until a moment ago  :V) and reminding me that I missed to mark two other works he had summarized in green.
That list is looking good now, and I will make sure that Everlasting Wanderers and Blood Diary of Remilia are gonna go green tomorrow.

Edit: And I just noticed, we made a Librarian-post-chain right now. We can actually take on the Janitors like this  :V

I don't know why we'd ever want to, though!dibs on broom breaker

Seeing as a 'work' of mine is in the librarian Megathread, should I avoid summarizing it by default? If not, I'll crash through anything that isn't summarized in the unassigned section tommorow.

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 14, 2010, 10:50:41 PM
I actually don't think it would matter if you summarized the Librarian thread, because it only needs a very general description anyway, BUT: We made some rules and we're gonna stay true to them till the end, so you, Ruro and me are not allowed to summarize that one thread.
The rest, you can take.
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Accepting Summaries!
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 15, 2010, 10:17:06 PM
Two works, #113 and #114 added. Also several more works marked thanks to Esifex.

EDIT: Also added the 'Weekly Short Writing Challenge' to the list, in the no-need-for-summaries group

As I said, I'll do that with Ruro presumably on Sunday. I can understand how eager you are to finally see some results, but please be patient for three more days.

I'll go over the assignments again tonight and send reminders to the people who have yet to submit work.

If someone really can't make it for some reason: Say it!

We won't bite anyone's head off, rather we can then reassign the work in time so it will be done till Sunday.

I'll see to it that I can at least take two or three of the new unassigned ones myself, so that Chaore won't do all of it by himself.

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on February 20, 2010, 08:29:26 AM
Okay, after looking over the list again, here's what's left to do:

There's currently six unsummarized works. Two of them are still assigned. Those are 'Thoughts End' and 'Yama of Xanadu' which belong to Ruro and Esifex respectively. If one of you thinks you can't make it till tonight, just post it here so that someone else can take over, but I guess that won't be neccessary.

The other four works were ones the original summarizer had problems with, so they are free for everyone to take. Here are the works in question:

#065
Name:      Touhou Kuroneko ~ The Black Cat from the Outside World (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=346.0)
Author:   [K] Merlin Prismriver
Length:   Medium

#007
Name:      Welcome, to My Delusion (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=471.0)
Author:   Zer0Axiom
Length:   Short

#033
Name:      The Twilight Spark Zone (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=1862.0)
Author:   Stein
Length:   Long

#073
Name:      Rou's Random Shorts (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=1681.0)
Author:   Roukanken
Length:   Long, contains a lot of small works


I'd especially like to ask for someone to take over the long works.
I'll try to look into the other two myself, but I can't make any promises. If they are not marked in about eight hours, then I didn't make it.

It pains me to admit that I can't finish Another Origins in one sitting, but it's true. I've been trudging through it, but it's a beast - very long.

If you want me to summarize up what I've gotten read so far, I'd be happy to - after all, a summary is just a teaser, right? Not the entire story summed up. Then you'd just read the summaries and not the stories.

Exactly. ^_^

Summarize it from what you've read already, that's okay. I did the same for Blood Diary.
Since both are from A-F, I expect the style to be similar to Blood Diary. In that case the intent of the story and the genre should be pretty clear from the start and not changing much within the story.

Just gotta find your muse, is all. I sit down and listen to some music, and the ideas just start comin' along. Whatever does it for you, if you wanna write, sit down and enjoy yourself and your inspiration. Friend of mine plays games to get his inspiration (although he doesn't write much to begin with).

Post by: Alfred F. Jones on February 22, 2010, 04:17:25 AM
Right then, let me clarify some stuff now that the initial exhilaration is over~

- The "length" category was struck out. I didn't much like the idea of people avoiding the "long" ones for that reason. The lengths were for us summarizers in the first place, to share work evenly when making the assignments.
- The "status" category still needs some hammering and standardizing.
- As to Gpop's question: Yes, the summaries will change as needed. That's why the Librarian usergroup exists. They're responsible for the maintenance of the Fanworks Listing now. :3
- Short stories had a much bigger chance of being seen as "incomplete", depending on the summarizer. We'll work on standardizing that later.
- Jan: Shanikusai is a monster of a translation project, you've just translated the first chapter. Still, since that's all Kira.Lu has posted, it's technically complete. My bad.

Awesome job, all~ Grats on the victory!

Finally the members and visitors of MotK can have a clear view of all the nice written works that had been hidden away in the dephts of the former Fanworks section.

It was wonderful to work with everyone on this project and it is thanks to everyone's efforts that we have finished that smoothly.
Thank you very much, everyone. *bows*

Though some of you are now dismissed from their duties as a Librarian, you'll always stay members of the 'MotK Librarian Squad'. \(^_^)/

Just saying, the next time you feel that urge to be snide, starting to move your fingers to the keyboard, ask yourself if you really want to post that comment. It's something I'm working on myself. It doesn't add anything, and it makes things weird for others.

Seems just about everybody who I interact with around here knows by now. But for a week there I was getting that reaction. All the surrounding info - profile, links in sig, MSN, AIM - they're all the same, though, so it didn't take long to clear up. Wasn't trying to be intentionally sneaky; just thought it'd be obvious who I was.

Hello, I'm happy that my fic is there, however when I look at it, it needs improvements. I will take down it for a while and re-write the whole thing. So if you can please erase it from the list.
I'll try short, one-shot stories to improve my writing and complete Touhou Dark War before posting it. It's the story I love, I can't abandon it nor can I leave it half-assed like this. Thanks in advance.

Done.

Y'know, it just occurs to me that we'll have to reorganize the numbers if anyone else takes their fic out of the list. :/ I got lucky with yours; it was 117 out of 119. I guess I'll just make the Librarians do that next time >:D

Such is the price of keeping order. :<

Though, I'll leave it to Sakana and the other librarians if they want to keep the numbers. I find them more convenient, just to keep track of how many fanworks there are, but it's up to them.

Are they all really in order of time of creation? If not then you could simply fill in empty gaps with new stories.

Like if 117 leaves and then a new story is made, then that one fills in 117.
Title: Re: Let's Tour MotK Fanworks Listing - Now Complete! See second post
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on March 10, 2010, 07:56:17 PM
I wanna keep the numbers.
And I don't like the idea of filling gaps with newer works, because the numbers also makes it so that newer works are always on the highest numbers, which makes work for us easier because we can immediately see works that need summaries at the bottom of the list. (Speaking of which, there's still no summary for Ammy's fic, guess I'll have to do it myself after all).

If it's a work that's no more than, let's say, ten numbers away from the most recent one, then renumbering is okay.
But imagine what happens if someone decides to delete #4x ? Renumberig hell~
In such cases, I'd say we simply leave the numbers blank or put in a -Deleted by author- notice in its stead.

Thanks, appreciated.

Just note that it will usually only be the Librarians who will make the summaries, as this is what we decided on when this Project started. We want to avoid any bias that may come from writers writing their own summaries.

Plus, managing the list is the sole reason the Librarians exist, so it would be stealing our job  :3

I'm gonna make an exception this one time, as your summary is written completely neutral.  :)

The 'canon' genre is meant to imply that the story is supposed to be read like it's backstory for the games themselves.

Rising Star is one such example; the goal of that story isn't just to entertain, but to explain more of the story behind the cast of UFO.

In that case, I'll have to add "canon" to White Rose's genre list, won't I?

Librarians are supposed to earn their keep by maintaining the Fanworks listing and keeping it up-to-date, but they get delayed from time to time. Don't worry about requesting your story to be added, they'll do it for you.

In fact, the only fanworks-related request you might ever want to do is a request to unlist your fic, if you choose. Doesn't happen very often, though.

And, well, White Rose is pretty long, so that might have something to do with it.

WHO submitted it matters jack all to me either.

So callous, it feels, that you easily mention 'equally worse' pieces. Then again, I'm not a full-on Librarian, so I've been picking and choosing what I've wanted to read lately, so you've got the one-up on me.

That being said, I'm a bit afraid now to volunteer my time reading/reviewing and summarizing some of the newer works, for sheer sake of being afraid of being assigned one of these reputed terrible works. Lemme know if you need another reader, anywho - it's been far too long since I've helped out.

Currently NaNo is taking away time, so big summarizing action to get the List back up to date will be done in December. I apologize for the inactivity and the backlog that piled up, I had a few rough months back there >_<

As for the VG555-fic: That was posted by 7hs who hijacked the account, actually, not by the guy himself. It will still be listed normally. It's in the library, so it will be on the list.

Notice to Librarians: Please do not touch the second post in this thread until further notice. I have today off from work, so I'm finally going to fulfill the offer I made to Ruro a month or two ago. This process shouldn't take more than just today, but any work you do while I'm doing what I'm doing will be completely lost once I'm finished.

Could I re

Sure you ca

 :V

I'm basically reorganizing the entire listing. Stories are going to be divided up into categories based on genre, and listed within those categories alphabetically by title. The reason I do this is because, to be perfectly honest, the index as it is now is just a giant blob of info. I look at it and ponder how someone could use it to search for something they might like, or something they remember liking but forgot where it was. And I have no particular answer to this, because there doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason to the order in which things are presented now that is functionally useful on a user level. (Maybe they're organized by date? I haven't checked that extensively, but if they are, that's not useful to a user at all.) With the stories organized even just by genre, a prospective new reader can go into it and think "Hmm, I want my Toohoos to be subject to something grimdark" and they can skip straight to the grimdark or suspense sections instead of having to wade through a huge list of stuff they don't care about to randomly find the occasional nugget that might actually interest them.
 
This does raise a few obvious questions, which I will do my best to answer right now.
 
What about stories that are in more than one genre?
 
- They will be put in the category that corresponds to the first listed genre, and every additional genre after that will have a ## in front of it (hi Mafia!) for ease of Control-F. Thus, a story that was originally listed as "Action, Comedy, Slice of Life" would now be listed under the Action category as "Action, ##Comedy, ##Slice of Life". That way, a person looking for a Comedy story can browse through the entire Comedy section, and then search for "##Comedy" to find everything that they missed.
 
Why not just have them use Control-F on the current listing?
 
- Because it's still nicer on the reader to have the vast majority of what they're looking for in one place that they can scroll up and down and use to make comparisons between two or more stories that may interest them, instead of having to jump up and down to look back and forth. It also looks slightly more professional.
 
Why alphabetically within genre, as opposed to retaining the current numbering system?
 
- Because sometimes people will remember parts of titles. If you can't remember the name of the story you really want to get back to, but you remember what genre it was and what the first word or two at least began with, alphabetizing them makes it easier to find it again. Admittedly this probably won't come up very often, but it's still a better user-end function than listing them chronologically.
 
What about organizing based on character appearance?
 
- No, or at least not right now. This would be incredibly hard to do in a meaningful capacity. Some stories may stick entirely within one game's cast, some stories may branch out to touch on as many different games as they can. And where does one draw the line in defining that any given character has appeared prominently enough within the story to be worth considering as the story gets categorized by game? Different people will have different opinions on this. If there is ever a consensus answer to this question, then perhaps I will go back and look through everything again and reorganize by game/doujin/CD of origin, but until then it would be an incredibly subjective exercise and thus not necessarily conducive to proper reference use on the user end.
 
If there's anything else you'd like to know, feel free to ask.

Reorganization finished! Many thanks to all the #s-l users and staff that helped me with the specifics as I plodded along in taking care of this, but major thanks go out to Drew McIntyre and Shaman's Harvest for keeping me sane all day while I did this. Everyone give Broken Dreams a listen as a thank you to those guys! (http://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=2OGgI1lTbQ4)

If anyone would like to look over the new organization and point out anything I might have screwed up, feel free to let me know. There is also the small "Needs Organization" section at the very bottom: any Librarians with time on their hands that can help sort that would be much appreciated.

Worth noting: Entries #067, #136 and #235 no longer exist.

This is actually a general service to all stories in the listing, to note- Just send a PM my way. Summaries change as stories lengthen, after all.

Post by: Alfred F. Jones on August 07, 2011, 07:13:31 AM
Are you ready to work like a slave reading fiction for the Touhou community? Are you prepared to dive into the depths of our unorganized bookshelves to track down elusive summaries? Are you willing to not save 15% off your car insurance by switching to PSL?

If so, then this project is for people like you!

The MotK Fanworks Listing, version 2.0: The Bookshelf Menace

(http://i.imgur.com/eGSNj.jpg) (http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/856698)
Depicted: An artist's rendition of Sakana's reaction when he sees disorganized bookshelves. For srs.

The Perspective
About a year and a half ago (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,4840.0.html), we decided that the fanworks section needed some serious tidying up-- a listing of works, with summaries and genres attached, to stir up interest in reading from people who would otherwise read, but didn't have time to sort through the mess. That project came to fruition as the PSL Library Catalogue, which stands proud to this day.

Well, mostly.

Y'see, the original plan was to have three Librarians (now four) tasked with keeping the catalogue up to date. However, in the months following the completion of the catalogue, something curious happened as an unforeseen side effect. We suddenly started getting a lot more fanfiction in PSL. Enough that the Librarians, limited as they were by time and IRL priorities, haven't been able to keep up.

The Plan
So we are launching another incentive to fight back against the forces of chaos and disorder! I hereby announce that we are going to overhaul our original plan, and move to a new system where we will try to have a big "cleanup" every few months (either once every four months, or once every six months), where we sort through all unsummarized works and file them into the Fanworks Listing.

And for that, we will take any volunteers that want to help out; old regulars as well as new people are all invited to take part. We are hoping for a few volunteers, but no more than ten, since that makes work distribution terribly unwieldy and gives my moe-moe Sakana headaches.

So for those who would like to help, please post here or PM me or Sakana. After we get ourselves more organized, the work that needs to be done will get organized into preliminary lists and sent to the volunteers, who will then send back summaries in the style of the current listing (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,4840.msg238887.html#msg238887). Or, like this:

Code: [Select]
[b]Name: [url=web address of the fic goes here]title of fic goes here[/url][/b]
[b]Author:[/b] author goes here
[b]Status:[/b] is it ongoing, on hiatus, or what?
[b]Genre:[/b] Primary genre, ##secondary genre-- use your best judgment on this
[b]Summary:[/b] Summary goes here

Currently we have as main genres Action, Adventure, Drama (includes Tragedy), Romance, Slice of Life, Comedy, Parody, Crossover, Mystery and Suspense, Poetry, Short Story Collections, and Miscellaneous and Other. Try to use those main genres as the primary genres, if you can.

The Plea
Unless you want to see me and Sakana turn into undead literary zombies (again!), you are welcome to help any way you can, as this is a rather daunting task and we really need the help.

Alright, so I've been going through the library and searched out all the works that need summarization. The end result is a nice list of 92 works, which is quite a bit, but shouldn't be too much considering our group-size.

Here's the deal now: Mr. Rabi, you are part of the team now, and so are you, Logos!
Joveus, if you happen to get the 10 post-limit until I leave for the weekend tomorrow afternoon, you are in as well.

I myself will have to refrain from taking on summaries myself for the moment, since I have an uni-assignment to deal with next week, but once that's done with I'll help out with any work that's left.

So here's the team at this point:

Brave Summarizers: Iced Fairy, Roukan, Chaore, Squawker, Polaris, Sect, rdj, T-A-C, Mr. Rabi, LogosOfJ

The Organizer: Sakana

Looking pretty on the sidelines: Sakuramochi~

Nooooooooo!



So here we finally go! The battle against disorder in PSL!

Here's what's going to happen now:

-Soon after this is posted all the eleven people that are signed up to help will receive PMs with eight works from the big list above. That is, except Polaris and Chaore, you two have nine works on your list, because you are cool like that!

-Your job is to make a summary for all the works on your respective list in the following way:

Code: [Select]
[b]Name: [url=web address of the fic goes here]title of fic goes here[/url][/b]
[b]Author:[/b] author goes here
[b]Status:[/b] is it ongoing, on hiatus, or what?
[b]Genre:[/b] Primary genre, ##secondary genre-- use your best judgment on this
[b]Summary:[/b] Summary goes here

Currently we have as main genres Action, Adventure, Drama (includes Tragedy), Romance, Slice of Life, Comedy, Parody, Crossover, Mystery and Suspense, Poetry, Short Story Collections, and Miscellaneous and Other. Try to use those main genres as the primary genres, if you can.

The primary genre is important, since the big Fanworks Listing is sorted by those!

-Once your summaries are done, send them to me via PM. I will cross out all works that have finished summaries from the list above, so we know our current progress.

-The works were assigned at random. If you notice you have tons of very long works or something, just ask your fellow Librarian Squad members if they can help you out and if you can get a shorter work from someone else.

-Feel free to use this thread here for discussion about your progress, for questions if you run into problems, etc. etc.

-Don't feel rushed. We have as much time as we need. While swift progress would be cool, we have no time-limit or anything.

Lastly: I will be away for the weekend and not return until Monday. If any urgent business comes up during that time, please refer to Ruro. Alternatively you can also ask Chaore, he's a cool bunny and will help you out!

-------------------------

I hope I covered everything important here. If not, I'll be away anyway, so you have no way to blame me, ha!

Again, big thanks to everyone that signed up for this! I'm confident you will all do a great job on this! ^^

Librarian Squad, move out!

I asked you this in a PM, but on deeper thought, I think I should ask this here in case anyone else has the same question. Do you want us to send the summaries as we finish them, or should we send them all at once when we're finished?

Of notice to the person who got Through the Wormhole:

The story has ended up having an extra update that wasn't in the thread proper (Scene IV Electromagnetic Radiation), so i'd suggest a second look if you already did the summary.

Apparently, game2011's Touhou: Journey to the Smashing Beyond (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,9715.0.html) is not only continued over at fanfiction.net, but it also has grown into a 550k word monstrosity.

Would it be alright if I make my summary of it its premise? Or is it necessary to read the entire thing first?

It's fine if you just summary it- This is a list of Summaries after all :V Reading is mostly so you can understand and summmarize, but you only need read enough to be able to aptly summarize it. We're not explaining the entire plot and storyline, we're just summarizing so people can be interested.

Also I'm done as well. Ship anything you guys can't do to me. I HUNGER FOR STORIES TO SUMMARIZE.

Good god. That is indeed a monstrosity!
Just summarize what we have here, and then link to the continuation on FF.net. If you feel it necessary to read at least a bit of it over there to get an accurate summary/preview, then do so, but I sure as hell can't expect you to read the entire thing first.

Let's get down to business
to create, this guide
Are you sad lot truly
the best this site can provide?

You're the saddest fairies I've ever seen,
but I swear before we're through
Sister I'll make a librarian, out of you

Silent as a church mouse
but verbose within
Once you find your muses
your words will fit in!

You're a nameless small pathetic lot
and you haven't got a clue
Somehow I'll make a librarian, out of you

:Never gonna reach the end
:Say good bye to my sanity
:Boy was I a fool in school for cutting lit

:Sakana's got them scared to death
:Hope nobody complains to me
:Boy I really wish that I could find my wit.

Read the books
You must be swift as the springing ferret
Read the books
With all the depth of a great lagoon

Read the books
With all the strength of a raging tuna
Mysterious as the the dark side of the moon

Time is racing towards us
'til the fish's, return
Read with great persistence
And his thanks, you'll earn

If you're not ready for this bad fic horror
Pack up, drop out, you're through
How could I make a librarian, out of you?

Read the books
We must be swift as the springing ferret
Read the books
With all the depth of a great lagoon

Read the books
With all the strength of a raging tuna
Mysterious as the the dark side of the moon

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on August 19, 2011, 05:20:57 PM
Haven't gotten around to scratching finished summaries off the list yet, but judging from the amount of PMs I got you guys are doing very fine and we are well on our way to finish this soon.

Now this is coming tremendously late, so if you already sent in your stuff, don't worry about it, but for those still summarizing that wonder which statuses for fics there are: Ruro summed it up nicely back then (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,4840.msg243867.html#msg243867).

"Stalled" and "Sporadically updated" aren't that important, you can leave those out if you want. Incomplete / Hiatus / Halted are useful statuses though (together with Finished and Ongoing of course)!

If you've got doubts, prefer Ongoing over Hiatus. It's not exactly a big problem if it happens that you mark a thread as Hiatus and it gets updated soon after though.
Title: Re: IMPORTANT: Operation Thunfisch: The Library Catalogue Cleanup
Post by: Aya Squawkermaru on August 19, 2011, 10:16:31 PM
Ah, that would have been useful info. If you want, I can re-do the status section of my summaries and re-send them to you.
Title: Re: IMPORTANT: Operation Thunfisch: The Library Catalogue Cleanup
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on August 20, 2011, 04:21:26 AM
Up to you, if you are okay with re-doing things and adding in those statuses according to Ruro's list, by all means, do so. But you are under no obligation to do  it ^^
Title: Re: IMPORTANT: Operation Thunfisch: The Library Catalogue Cleanup
Post by: Aya Squawkermaru on August 20, 2011, 04:26:30 AM
Yeah, I just think that those statuses are more accurate, and if it helps the library be a better place, I think I can handle going in and changing a few words. :P

Edit: Just noticed that I was only assigned seven (I was assigned Some Random Shorts twice) instead of the normal eight. So, if anyone needs to hand one off to somebody, I'd be more than willing to take it since I did less than the average.

Alright guys, here's the status: I've updated the list on the first page and as you can see, there's a lot of green in there now, you did a good job!

But there's also some black left. Rabi, Logos and Sect, could you give some kind of status update on how far you are with your assignments? Don't be afraid to tell if you don't think you can manage, we will just split the works amongst the others then.
Title: Re: IMPORTANT: Operation Thunfisch: The Library Catalogue Cleanup
Post by: Aya Squawkermaru on August 21, 2011, 01:45:20 PM
Sakana. Did you assign What Lies Beyond to someone else, too? It's in the list twice, once green and once black. :P
Title: Re: IMPORTANT: Operation Thunfisch: The Library Catalogue Cleanup
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on August 21, 2011, 02:00:39 PM
Goddamnit :V

I know exactly how that happened, but I didn't have the extra time to double-check when I sent out assignments XD

Yeah, WHOEVER GOT THE SECOND "WHAT LIES BEYOND" (I think that sould be Logos), DON'T SUMMARIZE IT, IT'S ALREADY DONE.
If that comes too late and you already finished the summary, well, that happens XD

Post by: Aya Squawkermaru on August 28, 2011, 05:50:46 PM
Hm... Only ten left, eh? That's good.

So, after this is done, will we still have Librarians doing summaries AND do this on a regular basis, or will we just do this every few months?
Title: Re: IMPORTANT: Operation Thunfisch: The Library Catalogue Cleanup
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on August 28, 2011, 06:06:20 PM
Sect is working on his stuff and will fill in the last blanks soon, then we'll be done~

After this, I'm currently thinking the following: There will be a part at the bottom of the Fanworks Listing where the Librarians add in all new works, but just as a title and a link. Then every half year we'll gather together and take all of those works and put in summaries for them. Of course, if someone feels really bored enough they can do summaries anytime they want for unsummarized works as well :V

That would be Chaore. <3

Also, an offhanded comment last night that I remember is that some summaries that have already been written need updating, particularly A New World, since it's finished since Iced is the only one of us with an actual work ethic. But that's much harder to take care of than simply summarizing fics as they are added. Any chance further cleanups could include something like this?

I'll probably have the boredom free time to do some summarizing on the side as well. I take it we'd continue to send those to one of you two?

I have plenty of free time, so I can help summarize new works and update existing summaries. Just point out whatever needs taken care of and I'll take care of it

Remember that little subforum we have called KGB? Yeah, we kinda need to look into works that should go in there at some point as well, A New World amongst others. I was aware of that before we even started here, but decided to start with the main task and keep this for later to deal with.

Alright, Sect sent in his stuff, and the listing is looking mighty green now. One black remains (aside from TEiPW Remake), that one must have slipped through somewhere. Anyone up to taking care of Scarlet Rivalry?
Either way, this means I can merge everyone's great work with the big listing on the weekend and we can call this project finished soon!


EDIT: Iced has declared the last story to be his prey!

EDIT 2: Iced has hunted down and slain the last story and sent its summarized hide to me. That means we're all done. LOOK AT ALL THAT GREEN!

The Fanworks Listing gives you the status of the works that are here on the forum, with a small few exceptions where the threads contain links to the stories being hosted on another site (some of UD's and Tengukami's works). We're not gonna monitor if works are posted on ff.net or wherever and if they are still continued there or not.  If the author wants to promote that they put their work on some other site, they can do it themselves, we're not gonna do it for them.

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on September 08, 2011, 05:31:52 AM
I don't think you understand how summaries work. The point of them is to give the reader a rough idea what the story is about, usually going from the premise set in the first few chapters the author posts. For the work you are talking about, I see three posts with story, that is more than enough for a summary. Furthermore the status is given as "In Progress", and the link to ff.net is in the OP. If the summary makes a reader interested in the story they will easily be able to get to ff.net and continue reading there. There is literally no problem here.

Introduction courtesy of Stein.

Chaos.

As ever, discord courses through the land as structures build up long ago feel the ever gnawing tooth of time.

Bridges fall.

Cities disappear.

Civilizations become more extinct than the bloody Dodo bird.

But, as long as there are warriors or order, be they of good or evil alignment, there is hope.

(http://i.imgur.com/2jS1n.jpg) (http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/1169017/)

Hear ye, hear ye!

All you who wander these lands lost without hope of finding your path, the call is being sounded for you to take up your ink imbued sword and aid us in the reconstruction and reinforcing of the grand library's fanfic listings.

The grand scribes Sakana and Ruro ask for volunteers, old and new, up to ten men or women, young or old, strong of mind, willing of hand, and joyous of heart, to aid in cleaning up a mess most uncouth of this grand establishment.

Aid us in filing the new stories that have not yet been sorted into the system, so that future generations may understand what the flying monkey fluffs each person put down on paper.

Hear ye, hear ye, ye who would aid. Leave your message here, or leave the grand scribes Sakana and Ruro a personal message, and allow their minds to be freed from at least an ounce of the stress that causes them so much pain that they become beings of undeath if exposed to it too long. Aid us, one, aid us all!

The work will be thus, that you will be send a list of literary works to read, and briefly summarize and categorize, so that it may be in line with preestablished norms and standards, as outlined below.

Code: [Select]
[b]Name: [url=web address of the fic goes here]title of fic goes here[/url][/b]
[b]Author:[/b] author goes here
[b]Status:[/b] is it ongoing, on hiatus, or what?
[b]Genre:[/b] Primary genre, ##secondary genre-- use your best judgment on this
[b]Summary:[/b] Summary goes here

Genres currently present and used are those of Action, Adventure, Drama (includes Tragedy), Romance, Slice of Life, Comedy, Parody, Crossover, Mystery and Suspense, Poetry, Short Story Collections, and Miscellaneous and Other. We ask that you adhere to these genres in your listings as best as possible.

Thanks to all ye who would hear these words.

-----

Alternate, less purple prose-y version:
We're just going to update our grand old catalogue (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,4840.msg238887.html#msg238887) of stories here in Patchouli's Scarlet Library, and while we do have some devoted librarians, they just can't do it alone.

So we're asking anyone who would like to pitch in to sign up and give us a hand. We are hoping for a few volunteers, but no more than ten, since that makes work distribution unwieldy and gives Sakana headaches.

So for those who would like to help, please post here. After we get ourselves more organized, the work that needs to be done will get organized into preliminary lists and sent to the volunteers, who will then send back summaries in the style of the current listing (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,4840.msg238887.html#msg238887). Check that link to see how the summaries work in practice.

Currently we have as main genres Action, Adventure, Drama (includes Tragedy), Romance, Slice of Life, Comedy, Parody, Crossover, Mystery and Suspense, Poetry, Short Story Collections, and Miscellaneous and Other. Try to use those main genres as the primary genres, if you can.

Thanks for supporting us so far, guys! Please sign up or pass the message on.

Across the winds of time, the faint clash of battle sounds.  It echos across the universe.

In a small room a lone figure sits.  It is old, older then planets, yet still young compared to some that surround it.  It hears the sound and it's eyes open, then narrow.  Once again she is called to war.  Her sword once again will flash in pursuit of truth.  And while she knows that atop the hill of victory there is nothing to be found, she feels an eagerness.  For is this not her purpose?  It is a story.  Perhaps not a strong story, but a story that needs to be told.

And truly her existence is made of stories.

It is time.  She closes her book, then rises to her feet, summoning her weapons to her hands.  She turns to follow the summons.  To face foes old and new.

As she leaves a smile crosses her face.


"I wonder if they're be ice cream after~!" the Iced Fairy muses happily as she wanders towards the lounge.

I'm in.

It comes. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvCI-gNK_y4)

At first you see nothing, but there's a feeling that something in the Library pool is watching you. Eying you like you'd glance at a slab of meat on the dinner table. You cautiously take a step away from the water, but the presence moves to follow you.

By now you can hear your heart pounding in your chest. You can't help but feel that whatever's in the water wants to do unforgivable things to you. You try to run, but sheer terror has left you caught in your tracks. Your legs are like the roots of a tree, grounded and unshakable.

The monster emerges from the depths. Tanned skin. Tufts of black hair. A killer's smile. She cracks her neck as she walks towards you, hunched over and ready to pounce at any moment. The machine around her neck swirls its water across her gills. Even on land there's no escape.

You go cold. You try to scream, but your voice is gone. She creeps towards you, never looking away, never letting her twisted grin falter for an instant. Four feet between you. Three feet. Two. One-

"Jozu!" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=915tWDTvVuU)

And suddenly the feeling fades. The predator flinches as a voice perks up from the side, suddenly looking like a guilty child. The voice's owner steps forward, shaking her head as she approaches the shark.

"I thought you promised not to scare the librarians anymore! Don't get me wrong, the fairies are free game, but what if there's a job for me to do?"

Jozu frowns. She looks down at the small music player on her waist, still playing the Jaws theme.

"Spoilsport."

She turns it off, and stomps back into the water. Her master sighs as she turns to you.

"Sorry about that...she gets a little twitchy if I don't write about her for a while. So what's up?"


tl;dr - Count me in.

Title: Re: PSL Call to Arms - Library Catalogue Cleanup Drive
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on May 21, 2012, 12:40:53 PM
Miscellaneous and Other is one category. The full name as Kilga made it back when he sorted stuff by genres is: Miscellaneous Stories and Other Works
From what I see we have stuff like COYAs, fake-Wikis, Reviews etc. stuffed in that category.
As for Erotica, that might be worth considering, though I'm not sure how many of those stories we have actually. NSFW is obligatory to be mentioned in the summaries though, of course.

Alright, that makes ten people to actively work on the summaries! And with that, recruitment is closed!
Thanks for everyone that offered their help!

Now I'm gonna take the next few days to put together a list of all the works we have to summarize, then I'll split it and send everyone a list of their share. After that, it's time to read and summarize until you either lose your soul or finish your list!  :]
Estimated time for the lists is the coming weekend.

That soon?

Comp broken. Phone post. Comp should be back by Friday if not serious. Could be several weeks longer if its hardware.

Didn't realize there was a cutoff.

Ah, if you can't make it due to not having your PC available, don't worry, we can manage with 9 people too.
But yeah, we want to get this done as soon as possible, due to me and possibly others having other things they'll be busy with in a while.

And yeah, there is kinda a soft cap on 10 because that's a manageable size.

Good news! Computer works now.
Title: Re: PSL Call to Arms - Library Catalogue Cleanup Drive
Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on May 28, 2012, 06:26:11 PM
So, I finished up the list of all the 81 works that we are going to have to go through earlier today, and was planning to divide it into individual lists and send those out about now.

However, a few hours ago my PC decided "screw it, I'm gonna implode". Right now it looks like just a graphics card problem, but it means I need a new card to be able to work at all on my PC, until then I can only do limited stuff via a netbook.
In other words, the start of the summarizing is gonna have to be postponed until my PC is fixed, which might be as early as tomorrow if I'm lucky.

Sorry for that.

Post by: Dead Princess Sakana on June 01, 2012, 05:20:39 PM
Alright everyone, my computer issues are fixed and we can start with the summarizing!
I've decided to do a bit of a new system this time by not sending all the lists individually, but post them all here.
This way, if someone is done with their list already and wants to take stuff off someone else's hands, you can just see what there is left to do and who has it and contact that person.
Or if you happen to have read a certain story already and could quickly do a summary, say so and you can take that story.
So basically, you can trade and share your workloads if necessary.

I will keep track of summaries that I have received by changing the respective links to a different color.

You should send finished summaries to me via PM, the only exception is ReedRizer, I think you can only receive PMs with less than 10 posts, not send them. But you can post your finished summaries in a post here in the thread, that works.

If you need some examples of how to do summaries, check out the Libary Catalogue here (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,4840.msg238887.html#msg238887).

The standard format is:
Code: [Select]
[b]Name: [url=web address of the fic goes here]title of fic goes here[/url][/b]
[b]Author:[/b] author goes here
[b]Status:[/b] is it ongoing, on hiatus, or what?
[b]Genre:[/b] Primary genre, ##secondary genre-- use your best judgment on this
[b]Summary:[/b] Summary goes here

Genres currently present and used are those of Action, Adventure, Drama (includes Tragedy), Romance, Slice of Life, Comedy, Parody, Crossover, Mystery and Suspense, Poetry, Short Story Collections, and Miscellaneous and Other. We ask that you adhere to these genres in your listings as best as possible.

As for the "Status" field, here are the definitions for different statuses of a fic:
Quote
Complete: Exactly what it sounds like. Note that this is different from Ended.
Ended: When the author posts a final update, saying that "I will no longer update this". Valesta's Thought's End is a good example.
Stalled: When the writer says they're taking a break and doesn't come back to the piece for a month or longer. Note that the only thing that separates this from Ended is that they at least state their intent to return. However, if this continues for six months, it goes to Permanent Hiatus.
Incomplete: Fics with a constant rate of updating. Updating at least once a month is enough to receive this designation.
Sporadically Updated: This designation exists because of short story threads, which most writers tend to update whenever the hell they feel like it
Halted: When a fic is forcibly ended because the writer has been banned. Can and should overlap with Permanent Hiatus.
Permanent Hiatus: Should only be given to works that have not updated in six months or longer. It's a politically correct way of saying "this fic is dead".

Now you will notice that I have a lot more on my list than the others. Don't worry, I'm not trying to overachieve, I simply added all the apparent short-story threads to my list since those don't need much summarizing.

That said, here's the lists! Now go forth, and do your best to summarize those wordy foes until none remain!

If there's any questions, ask here, PM me or poke me on IRC.

We don't have a deadline, though of course we wanna finish swiftly, so work at a pace you are comfortable with.

I didn't think of that before, but that's an excellent thing to point out.

We will ship all the finished stories to KGB once we are completely done with the summaries, before  merging the summaries into the respective listing.

I just finished all of mine,  though there's one where I would like a second opinion on (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,11366.0.html) because the entire thing is in Japanese. I don't really know Japanese, no (complete) translation was ever given in the thread, and the results from Google Translate were not exactly coherent.

For the record, here's what I have:
Name: 霊夢の伝説 (The Legend of Reimu) (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,11366.0.html)
Author: Drake
Status: Complete
Genre: Short Story
Summary: Reimu is unhappy because she is poor. She solves her problem by stealing an old lady's bag. Note: story was written entirely in Japanese.

I felt so tempted to snark at the lack of translation in my summary.

While you shouldn't snark it should be stated up front that it's unreadable if you can't speak Japanese.

Since we haven't heard anything from ReedRizer unfortunately, I'm just gonna assume that you can't make it for some reason. If you already have some summaries, please post them here, otherwise we'll just go and find someone to take over the remaining fics.

Thank you very much for your help everyone, it's very much appreciated and we couldn't have done it without you all!

Look forward to the next Cleanup...  :]

Merging this thread into the main Fanworks Listing thread now and add it to the chronicles of the Librarian Squad's eternal struggle against disorder in the library!

Is there going to be another cleanup in the near future? I admit I kind of got out of the touhou fandom for the past 4 years, but I'd be really curious to see what new stuff has popped up in the last 4 years since I entered these forums.
