[community profile] theforceawakensbigbang, for those in Star Wars fandom, though it seems to only cover the new movie, and not many people have signed up yet, but hopefully the mod will start advertising soon.

However, it only has a 15k min, and the rules look very sensible.

There seems to be one on tumblr wherein the mod plans to prescreen all fic for problematic material, which seems to include ships they don't like. Oh, tumblr.

(For the record, I have run bangs where the mod retained the right to remove fic that wandered into George Washington's Happy Cake-making Slaves territory, which we never actually had to invoke. If I were running one now... I probably wouldn't keep that? It was in response to J2 Haiti wank, and seemed sensible at the time, but as I get older, I get less and less interested in policing people's fandom experience. However, I'm still not entirely against having a mechanism in place to deal with people who are being clueless asshats.)

The whole Star Wars ship war thing is already super tiresome. I guess it's baby's first mega fandom in a lot of cases, but I'm here for the adorable OT3 fanart, and not so much for judging people for shipping whatever the fuck speaks to their id. Do what you want, tag it, and I'll use xkit like God intended. Stop posting troll fic and running elaborate false flag operations on "enemy" ships. Use your energy for something more productive.

Though it's not like there haven't been bitter shipwars since the dawn of fandom, by which I mean Ancient Greece, so the chances of this changing aren't super high.
