There’s an idea that’s starting to come up in discussion. XXXEauDeToilettexxx, who runs a D/G Spanish language FB page, is asking if we can put up Spanish language fics on FIA. YES!!!!! was my first reaction. 😉 I would love to get some diversity there!!
The only thing, though, is that I can’t do what ffnet does, which is to make fics searchable by category. The Efiction platform itself is going to need to be updated first, and who knows how long that will take. BUT. If we get them up there, I will do everything in my power to pimp them. I will read and review, even if I have to put the whole fic through Babelfish. (I had six years of Spanish in high school and college, but it’s unbelievable how fast a language goes if you don’t use it…) Spanish has got to be the most practical language you could learn in the U.S., by far. So I need to get back to it, and reading these fics is the perfect reason! 🙂
I will also do the same thing for fics in any other language. Okay, if they use a different keyboard, this may start to get difficult. But I DO have a friend in another fandom who speaks and writes Japanese pretty well. So we’ll make it work.
Hey,everybody out there in the non-English speaking world!! What do you think?
P.S.: To all: And Happy Day-After-Thanksgiving! 🙂
aka, eating all the leftovers for breakfast even though you said you’d never eat again after last night. 😛
