About Parallels Fic Exchange 2011 (Parallels_2011)
Parallels is a rare fandom fanworks exchange for Asian sources.
Anime fandom and other Asian source fandoms have a long history outside of Western Media Fandom. There are many points of intersection and many fans in both, but one did not grow from the other like Media Fandom did from SF fandom. They are a parallel evolution. And within Asian media, there are many parallel traditions like manga, manhwa, and manhua.
This exchange is inspired by Yuletide but at a different time of year, unaffiliated with it, and with a somewhat different core demographic. I envision it as a complementary exchange--in parallel, if you will.
