(From the asylum profile
) The month of May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, a time to celebrate and honor those who are Asian and Pacific Islander descended.
While APAHM in real world terms is about celebrating the heritage of Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders, I decided that the term was too narrow to fit the scopes of fandom (especially those characters in the sci-fi/fantasy realm that are played by Asian/Pacific Islander actors or characters who are Asian but aren't American) and have broadened it to include any Asian or Pacific Islander descended character and/or actor. /end
That said, I want to give apahm
as much love as it deserves. Last year, I did a picspam and a roundup of fics. This year, I want to do more, much more, but I need help in the form of submissions.
For those want to share your squee about a specific Asian/Pacific Islander character/actor. The outline of the spotlight is completely up to you, and can include icons/fics/vids, or just meta and squee.
For those who know or have written about Asian/Pacific Islander characters, please submit links to those fics. The only stipulation is that the fic must have the Asian/Pacific Islander as the main focus or part of the main pairing.
For those who know or have created art of Asian/Pacific Islander characters, please submit to those creations. The only stipulation is that the artwork must have the Asian/Pacific Islander as the main focus or part of the main pairing.
What do you
want to see? I'm only one woman so any suggestions/ideas would be appreciated.
