Upcoming Event - "Shortaki Week"!

Post by LeSkuh on Sun May 15, 2016 10:50 pm

I'm not involved in running this, but I wanted to boost this event for all of our fanfic writers/artists/creative peeps!  Originally posted on THE SHORTAKI WEEK TUMBLR.




Hello Hey Arnold! fandom! Welcome to Shortaki Week 2016, which will run from July 2, 2016 to July 9, 2016! The purpose of this week-long event is to celebrate the timeless pairing that is Helga/Arnold through the creation of new fanworks!

So how does this work? It’s super easy! A theme/prompt has been designated for each day between the 2nd and 9th of July. Participants choose however many prompts they want! On your prompt’s designated day(s) you post the work to tumblr using the tag #shortakiweek (must be in the first 5 tags!), either in its entirety or as a crosspost, and we reblog it to the community!


  • Day 1 - Growing Pains
  • Day 2 - Correspondence
  • Day 3 - Magic
  • Day 4 - First Time
  • Day 5 - Travelling
  • Day 6 - Family
  • Day 7 - Regret / Creator’s Choice


We encourage everyone who’s interested to participate and will be accepting a wide range of fanworks (i.e., fics, art, amv’s, cosplays, graphics, podfics, music, crafts, etc) so no one feels excluded! Not the creative sort? No worries! We still need moderators!

Please make sure to READ THE RULES before anything! Have any questions or suggestions? Message us here!

Also, please spread the word! Let’s make the first Shortaki Week an utter success! <3

I'm super curious as to who is running it! I don't think it's anyone I've really ever talked to in the fandom before, which... for me is actually very odd!! Haha!

I was thinking Limey mainly due to the fact that her picture is being used, if not I wonder who it is.

I don't think it's Limey - honestly people treat her art v. much like graphics so they might have just snagged it. Although maybe they asked permission??? IDK.

I know it's still a month away but who else is really pumped for Shortaki Week?! Very Happy

I'm editing an AMV for "Secrets" on Day 7... actually, I finished it tonight (after about a week's work) and it's probably going to kill me waiting a whole month to show it! lol  Why am I such a workaholic? Razz  Makes me wish there were pop culture conventions near me where I could actually enter into a contest or something.

Well, I can work on a few more little things for the Pataki Press... something else I am just DYING to see when the first issue is done?  Makes me wonder if in some way Craig Bartlett will set his eyes upon it somehow and comment on it - a guy can dream, right? Smile

I really should start prepping for this now so I'll actually follow through. And I need to redownload a movie maker program because I haven't made an amv for years and I've got an idea for one of those days.

I'm looking forward to seeing your AMV, AlainRacette! Awesome job and getting things done so quickly!

I use my time away from work efficiently, what can I say? Cool

Do you know which prompt/theme you're going to focus on? I'm looking to July so I can submit it... and to see the works of everyone else Smile

The song I've got picked out can kind of apply to multiple themes. I'm going to try to write out some fanfiction, too, but we'll see.

Not sure about the fanfiction for me... it's been SUCH a long time Razz I can write dialogue all day but prose slows me down way too much and I get impatient lol But one day I'll try again. I usually stick to poems or write in screenplay format instead - I've submitted a few poems to the folks in charge of the Pataki Press so hopefully some will make it to the fanzine Smile

I've got some more poems percolating in the creative part of my brain... now it's to get them down just right the way I like them... and then decide whether to save them for Shortaki Week or send them to the gals in charge of the Pataki Press LOL WHICH ONE?
