So, we have a project going on. For Zhou Mi,
I have thought that we could craft him a book filled with things that make him smile. A book of Love
is the project name, and I hope this tells you the essential meaning and overall line of the book. I wish you could help me to fill this book with such things. But why are we doing this?
Recently, Zhou Mi's sina blog [weibo] got hacked, and now he has had to quit using it. The media is after him, the anti-fans are bolder than ever. I sincerely hope we can do this to show him that there is not only hate, but also love and support for our Honey Prince. As it will be a birthday present
for him, I hope we can include birthday wishes and generally more happy stuff in it, not remind him of the events that are currently in the media. Book of Love should be filled with :
- photographs of Zhou Mi [concerts, weibo, Zhou Mi with other members - just as long as they are happy pictures]
- supportive messages telling how much there is love for him - probably both translated and in English [nothing dirty, though!].
★ Because the book is supposed to be for his birthday, it would be nice if you could word your message thinking that it's April, not January. We don't want to remind him of the bad stuff he's been going through, so it would be nice if the messages would not concentrate on the hacking. But tell Zhou Mi why he is special, why we like him - positive things about him, birthday wishes, etc.
- Also, if you are capable of drawing fanart - it would be lovely if we’d get to fill the book with pictures for Zhou Mi. Those that we have drawn ourselves.
art are approved. If you can, please print it or include it in your crafted page, but it's completely okay if you want to send it to me via tumblr askbox
, or link it to me here on livejournal. It is, although, approved if you could send it to me via mail.
- Aphorisms of life, perhaps? Little things about life, everything supportive~ [things Super Mario, Hello Kitty, leopard printed stuff, high fashion, song lyrics - the options are endless~ ]
- Short stories of Zhou Mi the Koala and his vegetable/animal friends
It would be really lovely if we got some stories included, but please keep them pg [nothing dirty, nothing angsty, and without any obvious pairings beyond friendship]. Just.. something nice that would make him smile? (: You can send your stories to me via tumblr askbox
, or to Arienne's post
page, where it will get translated sooner.
EDIT! If you just can, it would greatly help if you could make a crafted page/pages yourself [preferred!]
- Just.. in general, if you have any ideas, please do tell me? (:
- a card, something, you can also send it to me via mail. Another option, is to send it to Ruth, who lives in the UK,
[I have linked you to her tumblr askbox, where you can ask her address]. Ruth will then ship the pages to me. If you want to participate like this, just send me an ask and I will give you an address where you can send your craft. Just note that the maximum size is A4
[8x11] - the usual size of paper, so it shouldn't be too hard to find something of that size. It can be smaller too, though - the more love we can fit in this book, the better~
- The costs of sending a letter will of course vary on its weight and where do you send it from (I think?), but hopefully you don't find this too expensive - it shouldn't be more than a few dollars, max. Probably not even that.
- The book has 40 A4-sized pages, so we have to fill either 40 or max 80 pages. This will be a tough job, so I hope we'll get as many pages done as possible.
★ I hope we could send this to him as soon as possible, but it will probably have to be a birthday present.
[his birthday is April 19]important! If you know anyone who is in contact with the people organizing baidu projects or other SS3 projects, or can get in contact with comeone who can deliver this to Zhou Mi, please do contact me?
- For now, I have asked if AA-Chan could help us to deliver this to Zhou Mi when the time comes, but if he refuses, any help would be greatly appreciated.
For now, let's say that the sooner you can send me your crafted page / message / fanart / whatever you choose to do, the better. It will take some time to ship, and I need to see how many pages there are left / organize the posts and send it forward, and this will all take time. Another deadline extension: Please send your page before March 1st~In order to get the address where you can ship your page, send me a PM.
To make things a bit simpler, lets do a quickie.
- vintagentleman - all the general stuff, just if you want to send anything concerning the Book of Love, I am here for you. Askbox is the fastest way, but also livejournal works.
- doumyoujitsukas - will translate your birthday wish to Zho
- ari_enne - will translate your koala!Zhou Mi adventures with vegetable/animal friends. [short stories without nothing dirty, too obvious pairings or anything angsty.] I would love if we could get people to write something. (:
- misslemonbar - if you need to ship something and for a reason or another don’t want to send it straight to Finland, Ruth is the person you ask for. As well as for me, the fastest way to get Ruth's attention is through her tumblr askbox
