Name:Nyota Uhura: awesome, or AWESOME y/y?
Membership:Open
Posting Access:All Members
Community description:Fic, art and discussion of the awesomness of Nyota Uhura.
Types of posts that are welcome here:

* Fic! Slash, het, and gen are all welcome! Crossovers are welcome! Please put anything NSFW, or over 100 words long, behind a cut tag. Feel free to link to your own journal rather than posting in the comm.

* Art! Hand-drawn, digital, collages, icons, backgrounds, banners, photomanips, anything visual. Please put anything NSFW, or over 500 px wide, behind a cut tag. Feel free to link to your own journal rather than posting in the comm.

* Meta! Reviews of the shows/movies, reviews of books starring Uhura, thoughts about Uhura's history (or future!), general thoughts about Uhura, your personal fanon for Uhura, discussions about Uhura, whatever. Please put anything NSFW or super-long behind a cut tag. Feel free to link to your own journal rather than posting in the comm.

* Recs! Of art, particular shows, fic, whatever. Show us your Uhura-based rec lists!

* Challenges and other Uhura-specific communities! If you know of a Uhura-based challenge, or a challenge where they're giving out Uhura prompts like candy, let us know! In the case of comment fic/porn battle-type challenges, do link us directly to the Uhura content; don't make us wade through 2000 characters who are not Uhura. We are a focused comm. Or, well, we'll try to be.


Types of posts that (at least for now) I'd like to avoid here:

* Actor-centric posts. I love Nichele Nichols, and I love Zoe Saldana, but the focus of this comm is Uhura. Meta where the actors talk about the character is certainly welcome, but for now, please stick with the character and not the actors.

* Please PM me before posting any kind of promotion that isn't strictly Uhura-specific. If you started up a Uhura/Kirk or Uhura/Spock or Uhura/McCoy comm, by all means post it here! If your comm is general Trek, comm officers of Trek, African-Americans in SF/F, etc., get in touch with me first, please. (I'll happily link to your comm in the userinfo, but would prefer to avoid opening the floodgates to individual promotion of the massive numbers of Trek comms that are springing up. We could easily be hit with 20 of those in a row, which is not the intent or focus of this comm.)

* Quizzes, memes, and so on. As awesome as it is that Uhura could conceivably be the focus of internet quizzes and memes, really, no.

* Intro posts. Posts should have some actual content, please; we're very happy to meet you, and I'll probably put up a meet-and-greet post eventually, but let's stay focused!
