Kaleidoscope is a multimedia fanwork exchange hosted by for rare chromatic source fandoms running for a second year. We are open to all sources with chromatic characters or people and by chromatic creators and welcome artworks, graphics, mixes, podfics, stories and vids. Our Kaleidoscope AO3 Collection and Kaleidoscope Treats AO3 Collection are now live with ~56 fanworks!
It’s basically all Becca’s fault that I signed up for three different fic exchange challenges this year. Which probably just goes to show what an awesome friend she is, because I got the most awesome gifts!
new revo[lu]tions - The Lizzie Bennet Diaries [source material] Charlotte Lu, Emily Lu, Maria Lu, Lizzie Bennet
Charlotte Lu feels! One of the very best things about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is the chance to see Charlotte as a full person with her own feelings and agendas, and the very best of friendships with Lizzie, along with an awesome little sister who is so much more interesting than Maria Lucas of the books. This is a pitch-perfect exploration of Charlotte’s feelings about her falling out with her best friend, and just how awesome her family are. And and and HER MOM.
our dreams will carry us – Capital Scandal Fanmix
GUYS GUYS I GOT A FANMIX. And I can’t stop listening to it, because Let’s Face the Music and Dance is now indelibly swing dancing revolutionaries in my head. And Korean songs! And Korean jazz! And family feeeeeeeeeels. BRB listening to it again!
But I’m discovering what everyone knew, is that the beauty of fic exchanges is that EVERYONE WINS. As there are works of sheer beauty here. And lots and lots of femmeslash!
Jezebel - Cha Song Joo video
This video is absolutely perfect. The recipient and I watched it together, fanning all the feelings out of our face and crying and gasping and generally flailing under the weight of emotions. Absolutely perfect and tragic character study of Cha Song Joo. Also full of spoilers, so you know, warned.
Nothing Like a Fairy Tale - Na Yeo Kyeong
Yeo Kyeong’s experiences at the party in episode 6. Beautiful, emotional and bonus friendships.
Yeol. Han 열, 한 - Cha Song Joo, Na Yeo Kyeung
Can we just establish that I love female friendship and Cha Song Joo AND Na Yeo Kyeung and there can’t be enough of it in my life? Good.
Five Times a Woman Became A Man: Five versions of Mulan
Secrets and history and changing mythology and family relationships and science fiction and trans men. I love every inch of this amazing work.
General Studies of Division – Dominique/Max.
Dominique and Max talk about us vs them, loyalty and sexuality.
Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2010)
A Branch in the Wind Cannot Find Peace – Empress Wu/ Jing’er
A beautiful and noble insight into Empress Wu. Determined, powerful, and suitably terrifying.
Whistle Down the Wind fanmix
Alright, I haven’t even read Kaze Hikaru, but this fanmix has suggested, with its use of Polly Oliver and the Mulan soundtrack, that I might enjoy the heck out of it!
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
Seven Wishes for Charlotte Lu Charlotte Lu, Lizzie Bennet, Maria Lu.
A fantastic character study of Charlotte and her relationships with her sister and her best friend, starting when she first holds a camcorder aged seven and following her through teenage crushes and college and her first job.
every third year the moon rose Cho Seon/Ha Hyo-Eun
An absolutely gorgeous tale of romance between two fascinating and exciting ladies. I loved this SO MUCH.
