Posting Access:All Members
disaster recovery plan: this is a mirror of thearchive2 on LiveJournal

[T]he archive, as printing, writing, prosthesis, or hypomnesic technique in general is not only the place for stocking and for conserving an archivable content of the past which would exist in any case... The archivization produces as much as it records the event. - Jacques Derrida, Archive Fever

why: so we'd have a home for season four, a reservoir for our surplus desire/creativity/intelligence
what: you may post
  • BSG fic, art, vids (new work only please)
  • AUs, crossovers, RPF, crack, and whatever else
  • discussion/meta about season four episodes and issues, in text or audio/video recorded
  • ideas and invitations for collaboration
who: anyone, but especially Laura Roslin and those more or less in her orbit
when: anytime, but especially season four and extending backwards to anything post-occupation
where: optional episodic challenges will be provided

there's no need to police what "counts" as part of this project; if you want it to be here, it's allowed here. that said, you are encouraged to consider experimenting with "postmodern" schemas. below you'll find an incomplete list of potential formats. the examples are rather randomly selected for inspirational purposes only, and owe a great debt to cathexys's far more comprehensive collection of links. to offer or ask for technical resources/advice, or for other questions/suggestions for the community, comment on the open thread
