Last week, I mentioned I had an Outlaw Star related surprise in store for everyone starting today. Well, time to reveal and explain. For 5 weeks, I plan on spending, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays sharing some of my favorite Outlaw Star based fan produced works, primarily fan art, with everyone. Why not Tuesdays? Well, as I said in my last post, that’s because I’ll be sharing Outlaw Star based Tune for Tuesdays, so that day of the week is already covered. As for why I won’t be doing weekends, and why I’m starting this week and not last week, well, Outlaw Star first premiered on American televisions on January 15, 2001, which is a week from this Thursday. And while it’s true that it first aired in Japan on January 8, 1998 (which was last Thursday), I figured I’d go with start on the week that was the anniversary of when I first discovered Outlaw Star. And lastly, the 5 week thing is because each week, Toonami would air 5 episodes of Outlaw Star, and after 5 weeks, they’d start again from the top. So I keeping up with that pattern. And who knows? Maybe by the end of this “month” of Outlaw Star, I’ll have at least one post ready and posted at the exact same time it aired on TV (thank you Toonami wikia for keeping track of those details along with many other things), but no promises. Speaking of which, looks like I’ll have to pick out something REALLY special for Thursday, huh?
As for today’s Fan Work Spotlight, I’ve picked a piece of art of what is my favorite pairing of all time by Inuyatta, who can be found on deviantART and fanfiction.net. Not only do I like her fan art, but her stories, especially one in particular, have been a major source of inspiration for me. But I digress. Also, before I go, I have two last pieces of business to address. First, because this is a pairing that holds a dear place in my heart, it’s admittedly going to be very hard to limit the number of times I pay tribute to this pairing ain’t going to be easy, and for those who aren’t crazy about it, I apologize in advance. I completely understand not being crazy about particular pairings, but everyone’s got their own opinions, and not everyone’s going to see eye to eye on who belongs with who. So at the very least, I can promise I won’t just upload shipping fan art the whole month. Second, with regards to the works themselves, while I don’t have every piece of fan work picked out ahead of time, like with most of my Tunes for Tuesdays, I’ll be trying to avoid picking works made by the same person, and I’m afraid I won’t be taking requests or suggestions. I apologize, but that is how it’s going to be, I’m afraid.
Anyway, I’ll see you all again next time! You better get ready!
