[personal profile] greerwatson posting in [community profile] maryrenaultfics2
Until recently, the [livejournal.com profile] maryrenaultfics community on LiveJournal was active. Indeed, this past summer saw its tenth anniversary. However, its moderators have decided to place it on hiatus.

Their decision, of course. Unfortunately, it puts two of its members in a difficult position.

For the Ten Years On (10YO) Celebrations, my sister [personal profile] fawatson and myself planned a series of ficlets set in a metaverse that was created in 2008 by the members of [livejournal.com profile] maryrenaultfics to be a place outside space and time that can be visited by any of the characters from Mary Renault's books. Originally, the Clubhouse there was simply a place where an Interviewer could chat with the characters. (The In Their Own Words project, it was called.) Over time, though, it became much, much more. In addition to the original interviews, a number of individual stories and series were set in this ITOWverse. Some of these were celebratory in nature (for instance, the Five Years On Celebrations of 2009). Others were comments on current events at the community: the characters' own perspectives on the members. A fictional newspaper, The Renault Times, allowed another form of meta as it was ostensibly delivered to the characters in their own books, reporting to them on events in both the ITOWverse and the [livejournal.com profile] maryrenaultfics community, while "columns" from it were posted as commentary.

So, naturally, an ITOWverse series was planned for the tenth anniversary of the comm; and my sister and I duly began to write and post it at that time. But it was never completed: events in the summer of 2014 derailed our best intentions. We intended to return to it—all fall and into the winter we intended to return to it. Indeed, after the Yuletide gift exchange (in which we both participated), we did indeed start back writing; and one post was made.

However, before we could continue, [livejournal.com profile] maryrenaultfics was closed.

This community has been created, therefore, so that we may complete our intended series of 10YO stories and provide an ITOW transition to the future.
