OTW’s 7 Wonders membership drive to raise $70,000 by Oct 27 starts now. We need everyone’s help so find out more.
IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN
Welcome back to the OTW’s yearly membership drive, the time of year when we all take a moment to look back at our collective fannish history and do our best to support the organization that has given us Archive of Our Own, Transformative Works and Cultures, Fanlore, and so much more.
It’s also a time to remember that it will cost the OTW will spend $75,000 in 2014 just to replace old servers and expand capacity. All of the OTW’s other projects aside, Archive of Our Own by itself will cost over $155,000 to maintain this year. AO3 is an incredible fandom resource, and as the site has expanded and grown it’s become easy to become accustomed to it being there for us. But any site that has 4,800 page views every minute isn’t going to be cheap to maintain, and right now it’s our turn to give back. (Please check out the OTW’s 2013 annual report, the OTW’s Hardware and Hosting costs, and AO3’s 2013 site stats for more information.)
Other than tumblr, I literally can’t think of a site that I use more frequently and consistently than AO3 — and it’s given to use entirely for free and with no gross advertising.
Even if it’s only $10, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO THE ORGANIZATION FOR TRANSFORMATIVE WORKS TODAY!

20-year-old German photographer Katharina Jung uses her camera and masterful photo manipulation to create otherworldly scenes of strange beauty. Although she’s only been pursuing photography since 2012, Jung has already amassed a portfolio full of dramatic portraits and spectacular conceptual photos that blend surreal and fantasy elements to create compelling visual narratives.
