The HDM fandom has been a little slow recently, and I'm hoping that it isn't going to stay stale... so I've decided to help the process by reviving jordancollege.net (fanart/fanfic archive)! Unfortunately, it still needs your help, O Awesome Fandom-people. ;)

If you are interested in helping out this link does a good job at consolidating all information, but for LJ-reading, here is a list of open staff positions.

Staff PositionsCollapse )

I think it's sad that the HDM community is becoming inactive. I want to help change that, and want you to help too. :)

Thanks for reading!

HI, KIDS!

it seems to have been deathly quiet here, which saddens me. as such, i have a question for discussion. it's not as srs bsns or in depth as our "weekly" (totally need to get on that, y/y?) topics but i think for the hdm fan, it still carries some relevance:

THE MOVIES.

yeah, so. essentially, i want to bring up the controversy of the golden compass when it was released in the united states - i can't speak for other countries, as i lived in the united states when it was released, but perhaps others of you can add an international perspective. anyways, some of this fanbase (albeit not a large section) is christian or perhaps belongs to another monotheistic religion ('sup to the two jews who mod this community with me, represent), so i have some questions for both sides:

+ do you think the controversy surrounding the movie was called for? &explain
+ was the film adaptation watered down too much, or was this appropriate to make it accessible to a wider audience? &explain

ALSO.

+ will the poor reception the film received from opponents in the united states (and perhaps other countries) prevent us from seeing blue-richards, kidman, and craig in the subtle knife and the amber spyglass? &flail

because, damnit, i really want sequels!

aaaaand go.







(on another note, we need more members to get this place rockin'! there is not enough hdm love around here. anyone want to help get the word spread? we should have a contest of sorts.)

In the His Dark Materials multi-verse, certain characters' stories and lives parallel those those of Biblical figures. How do you think Pullman's characters relate to those Biblical figures and how do you think they are different?

As the most obvious example, Lyra is supposed to be Eve, we've been told this throughout the series. How do you think Lyra is like Eve? How do you think she's different?

And please, feel free to submit other discussion topics in the comments for further consideration, and pimp this to your friends!

Hello, citizens of Lyra's Oxford, and our world, and Cittagazze, and the land of the Mulefa, and every universe in between. Welcome to cloudedmountain! Here at the clouded mountain, we love His Dark Materials: its characters, its universes, and its wonderful possibilities.

If you'd like to affiliate, please post below and we'll get back to you! At the moment we're accepting affiliation requests from any and all His Dark Materials communities!

Some things to note: We'll be having weekly discussions about something in His Dark Materials. If you join later and you want to go back and talk about something we've discussed, we'd love that. Discussions don't end and there's just so much to say!

In addition, we'll be having a monthly drabble fest. The first one will go up in the first week of September, so look forward to it!

And now, some rules to follow:
