The Site is Being Archived!… What Does That Mean?
Hey guys! I come to you all with some hard news, and it’s certainly going to be very important for you all to read this carefully.
With the ten year anniversary of the site’s creation, along with our many Origami Universes starting to approach a conclusion, me and the council have decided that it’s best to end it when it all… well, ends. So, for the next 24 weeks, we’re in the active process of streamlining and completing the appropriate stories needed. For example, there’s five (maybe six) DCOU Fold 4 stories (Yep! DCOU Fold 4 is happening), and I got to write two more for it, including the finale. When those are finished, then DCOU Fridays will begin again.
I’ve discovered that this has been the most effective method for content output. By collecting the entirety of the DCOU and then posting it weekly, it gives you guys something to read every week. Yeah, yeah, there’s content droughts, but that’s where this new scheduling process comes in:
On Mondays, there’s BTFOLDs/Video Games Origami Universe Mondays. This includes stories by Origami Master for his Video Game Universe, or the Between the Folds stories that other users have written (I’ve been told someone wants us to post Pirates of the Caribbean stories for the longest time, and so… we’ll get to it. I promise.)
On Tuesdays we have the Percy Jackson Origami Universe Tuesdays. Rather than Sundays, the Tuesdays release gives Hades time to put them out, and they make a lot more since for the schedule we have running.
On Wednesdays We got Wizarding Folds Wednesdays. This might be fairly short-lived, I don’t know how many stories Guillermo has left to post.
On Thursdays we have Revisited/Fold of the Rings. YES! These are still in the works, and hopefully they’ll be releasing in the next almost half-year.
On Friday is DCOU Friday, like usual.
NOTE: If there’s no stories for that week, that’s fine! There won’t be a post that day!
Everyday of the school week, because, well, we’re in school, these stories are to be posted at 4 PM – 10 PM. So when you guys get home, you have a fun story to read in your favorite Origami Universes!
ALL ORIGAMI UNIVERSES MUST BE DONE BY NOVEMBER 30, 2022.
That means that the stories for these Origami Universes will be posted by November 30, or Earlier. Throughout December is our Finale Arc of the Origami Universe, which we’ll announce the full slate next month for the 10 year anniversary.
Legends, elseworlds, one-shots, etcetera are also included in this Archive plan. COME TIME FOR DECEMBER 31, THE SITE WILL BE CLOSED TO POSTINGS. NO NEW STORIES AFTER THAT DATE. That means you have to finish what you want to do, and because of that…
BY MARCH 31, USERS THAT WANT TO WRITE STORIES FOR THE SITE MUST SEND AN EMAIL TO DC.Origami.Universe@Gmail.com ABOUT THEIR FULL SLATE.
If you’ve written one-shots that haven’t been posted, tell me! If you are still working on your new Legends story for 2022, tell me! I need slates, people! Slates! Your individual list of stories you’re writing! Some of your slates might need to be cut, and I’m happy to talk with you all about why we might think that.
I find that the best way to keep track of this is on a checklist on your phone. I have my goals all in track and people — we are finishing by the end of September!
These stories will also be collected into various Omnibuses. These Omnibuses will be collected into pages on the tabs of the VGOU, DCOU, MOU, Etcetera, and also saved onto our computers (when I have enough money, I’ll probably get them printed to have in my office, that way if something happens to the wordpress site, the stories are never, ever, ever truly gone.)
This Pinned page also acts as a Q&A too. If you have questions, you NEED to let us know! Me or one of the mods will answer it for you. This is going to be a time of many things: Great content, great stories, great conclusions, but most of all, it’s going to be a… a kind of stressful time.
