Rating: Suitable for most.
Warning(s): None.

From the south came Woo-san, 吴暹, who again was saved by childbearing, though she saved herself again. She was born of vengeance and dead of hate, except she sold her daughter and her daughter slew her.

There is no joy in fairytales. The power which is woman’s is subsumed into clay, into earth and womb, as though there were no mode of womanhood outside this form of gore. Sister strives against sister for the hand of a saviour: no union, no sorority, for that is not allowed.

What   is this community about?

This is a ficathon dedicated to celebrating characters of color in comics.


Because characters of color are awesome. Comics are awesome. Combining them is pretty much the highest level of awesome. It also exists due to my frustration at not finding the types of Yuletide stories I wanted to read in the comics sections.

What's with the name?

The name comes from Ian Sattler's comment about "diversity" in the DCU:

A serious topic came up about how characters who are minorities who happened to be legacy characters like Ryan Choi are killed off so their caucasian counterparts can return and how they feel like they are being cheated or sidelined out of their roles. Sattler took a more serious tone. “It’s so hard for me to be on the other side because it’s not our intention. There is a reason behind it all. We don’t see it that way and strive very hard to have a diverse DCU. I mean, we have green, pink, and blue characters. "

What is acceptable for this ficathon?

Any character of color in any type of relationship, or in a gen story/artwork. Your stories can include white characters, but the focus of the story should be the experiences of the character of color.

If you are writing about current canon Luke Cage, for example, feel free to include Jessica Jones. But the story should not be about how hard Jessica finds it to be married to Luke and have a baby. If you write a Jaime Reyes/Jason Todd story, you could feel free to explore Jaime's interaction with the batclan - which could be awesome, by the way - but the story should not be "Jason finds dealing with his family hard."

All genres are welcome here: het, slash, femslash and gen.

Traditional superhero comics are acceptable, as are webcomics and non-marvel/non-dc comics.

What types of work are acceptable?

Fic - at least 500 words.
Art - Sketches are fine, as are more complicated works.
Icons - at least a batch of ten or more.

What is not acceptable?

Stories should not be transphobic, biphobic, homophobic, racist, ableist or sexist. That being said, your characters may deal with these issues within the course of the story and every story does not have to be happy. Exploring issues is fine, and cathartic for many.

Starfire is not a character of color. Neither is She-Hulk. Seriously.

Bashing of characters, pairings and creators is not okay. Find a way to request without doing that.

What about racebending characters?

The purpose of this community is to celebrate characters of color that already exist in comics. Writing yet another Bruce Wayne story where this time he happens to not be a white man does not meet that goal.

If you want to write about a Captain America who is a person of color, you're in luck! One already exists and Isaiah Bradley is pretty cool.

What is your policy on warnings and headers?

Warnings: please provide content warnings for rape/non-con, dub-con and any death fic. If you choose not to include warnings, please make that policy obvious in your headers.

Headers should include:

Author or Artist:
Summary or Description:

Important Dates:

Prompting: January 2- January 23
Claiming: January 25 - February 9
Posting: February 14 - March 14


Each person can claim up to TWO prompts.

Every prompt can be claimed up to two times.

You can post anywhere you like, but you must post to the community with a link to your work if your work is not posted directly to the community.

Any other questions?

Ask them below.
