A Brief Introduction:
Hello! Welcome to the CLAMP Fanfiction Mailing List page (and a drab page at that but I'm gonna work on improving this site.) ^_^ My name is Tin Mandigma, list owner. I've been an avid CLAMP fan for a couple of years now and am always on the hunt for CLAMP fanfiction. There is a CLAMP mailing list in existence but no Fanfic ML as far as I know ^_^ So I thought, hey why not set up a ML and gather all the CLAMP fanfics in one place? I hope this ML could provide some sort of, uh, territory for CLAMP fanfic fanatics like me to discuss the art and craft of writing CLAMP-based stories. While CLAMP does not stick to one genre in terms of story type, nearly all of their works fall under the umbrella of shoujo manga. What interests me most is how they managed to create a unified 'feel' for their stories (in terms of rationale, style and technique in both their art and writing) while maintaining highly-diversified and, at times, divergent plots, characters and settings. One of the main reasons why I decided to start this list is to see how various 'fic authors streamline their own particular preferences and blend in with (or perhaps stand out from) the 'general' structure of CLAMP's works, to provide a melting pot of sorts. Whew, I'm getting prolific here ^^;;
Before we proceed, below is a basic run-down of CLAMP's published anime and manga works. I took the liberty of providing links to general info sites per series so as to give you an idea of what to expect overall:
*I'm aware that I missed other titles ^^;; but I think the list above contains the most popular of CLAMP's works and thus those most 'prone' to fanfiction. Take your pick ^_~
However, before you join, there are some rules which you need to be aware of. Yeah, I know, rules suck but, hey, we all need some sort of order in our lives, in the fanfiction world (where anything and everything can happen) most especially. Here's a sampling of what you need to know in case you should join the CLAMP Fanfic ML:
WARNING: Some of the material on this list may be considered potentially offensive to conservative readers since most CLAMP series (like X, Tokyo Babylon, RG Veda) depict shoujo ai (girl/girl relationships) and shounen ai (boy/boy relatioinships) and, naturally enough, fanfics which follow these series pick up on the above aspects. That is why this ML is considered appropriate for people aged 17 and above only. However, if you are below 17 and would still like to join, you are free to do so as long as you keep the above warning in mind.
Any member could invite other people to the list through theauspices of ONElist's Member Center. Tin exists to lay down the ground
rules and do the bureaucratic stuff involved with running this list effectively.
