Lunar mission relaunch: welcome back to Purnima!

Last year, on Nov. 5, I launched this community with high hopes of creating a thriving home base for fanworks featuring characters from South Asia and the South Asian diaspora. It was a lofty goal that came crashing down a short time later, thanks to a) my lack of commitment and b) a lack of community activity. I'd like to fix that this time around.

This year has seen a significant increase in South Asian presence on TV, including Sendhil Ramamurthy's Jai on Covert Affairs, the cast of Outsourced, and Sunil and Arun from In Treatment. (Check out this November 2009 list of South Asian characters in media for more.) But it's not just about fresh faces and fresh stories to play with. Everything from the Mahabharata to classic Bollywood films holds fannish fodder, and I know there are pockets of people out there working on stories and art to that effect. Let's see if we can make this community a place to host all of that...and meta discussion as well.

To kick things off, I have a simple prompt, running through December, in honor of Diwali: light. Turning it on, shining it, contrasting it to darkness. Candles, flashlights, oil lamps, Bic lighters. Whatever you've got in you, it's time to bring Purnima back out of the shadows!

Non-themed fics are enthusiastically encouraged!
