Welcome to Monday, the day of the week named after that moody satellite, the Moon. I'd like to start a bi-weekly discussion/challenge/theme that I call Dark Side Mondays
, in which we explore characters' Dark Sides in relation to the moon, saturn, and all trans-saturnian planets (uranus, neptune and pluto).
Participants can post an essay, thoughts on a specific canon or fanon char/situation, fic, artwork...anything!DSM no. 1: the Anti-Mary Sue!
1. Post in fandomastrology
, choosing one of these premises:
* A normally "good" character's Dark Side makes them momentarily ugly or imperfect, or hurts someone they love.
* In making a tough decision, a character's "Dark Side" internal dialogue wins over.
2. Incorporate an aspect of moon cycles and/or astrology. Moon sign astrology is encouraged, but not required. If you're not familiar with the moon in each sign, please feel free to ask for some reference material.
3. Posts/Fics are due in two weeks - Monday, July 3. ETA:
Please reply to this post if you plan on participating, and (at least a vague idea of) what you're going to contribute.
Have fun! ♥
