MUCH NEEDED UPDATE
HI EVERYONE, FIRST OF ALL, I WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU GUYS FOR BEING SO PATIENT ABOUT THE ZINE'S FIRST ISSUE. AS YOU ALL KNOW, IT'S QUITE DIFFICULT TO GET A MAGAZINE STARTED, AND IT'S TAKING QUITE A BIT OF TIME TO ASSEMBLE ALL OF IT TOGETHER PROPERLY. SO FOR ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH ME AND MAL ABOUT IT, THANKS A LOT. IT MEANS MORE THAN I CAN SAY THAT YOU GUYS ARE STILL SO INTERESTED.
ANY SUBMISSIONS THAT HAD BEEN SENT IN TO MAL THAT WE'RE NOT USED FOR THE FIRST EDITION WILL BE PUSHED BACK TO THE NEXT ISSUE. I DID NOT RECEIVE MANY OF THE SUBMISSIONS, BUT ANYTHING SENT TO MAL WILL BE USED. ANYTHING SENT TO ME WAS ALSO FORWARDED OVER TO MAL, SO NO WORRIES.
AS FOR THE DATE OF THE NEXT DEADLINE, I'M NOT QUITE SURE, BUT YOU CAN SEND ANY SUBMISSIONS OR QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS OR ROUGH DRAFTS OVER TO LO0SER.CHELZA@GMAIL.COM
THAT'S MY DIRECT EMAIL, SO IF YOU SEND IT THERE, IT WILL DEFINETLY BE SEEN AND FORWARDED OVER TO MAL.
I REALISE THAT MAL IS QUITE BUSY ATM, SO ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE, EITHER COMMENT HERE, OR FORWARD THEM MY WAY. AGAIN THANKS FOR YOUR DEDICATION, AND PATIENCE.
ALSO, I'M LOOKING FOR ANYONE WHO IS GOOD AT SETTING UP A WEBSITE FOR THE ZINE. BESIDES THE LJ ACCOUNT. LIKE A WEBZINE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, OR ARE QUALIFIED TO DO THIS, LET ME KNOW.

You all know what tomorrow is right? DEADLINE! for issue 1. For some of you, it's already the 23, but don't worry, issue two will be excepting submissions soon enough.
Ok, so on with the details.
anyone who wants a copy of the zine should reply to this with their address. (comments will be screened) don't worry. As soon as I get the address, I'll erase the comment, to insure your confidentiality, or whatever x]
remember, without readers, the zine won't go anywhere, so if you want multiple issues, please ask for multiple issues. $2 AMERICAN per issue. you can pay Mal via mail, or paypal. ask her for more information. or in your reply, ask me, and i'll give the info to you.
Give this to your friends, your family, strangers. We need more members to get this off the ground and so it can get to the guys.
AND IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY. THANK MALLORY. SHE'S WORKING WAY TO HARD FOR US TO JUST LET IT GO UNNOTICEDany further questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
that's me, and I check it very frequently. so no worries :)

Or whatever you call it...
Sooo I'm looking for someone who wants to help me out with something :]
I'm writing a multiple-chapter story for the zine and I'd like to have 1 drawing with every chapter to kinda illustrate it.
About the story: it'll basically just be the story of The Patient. I'm following TBP's tracklist, writing a chapter for every track. If you're interested in this, you can go to my blog for an example story -- that's sent in for the zine too :]
So... help? Pleeease? -puppyeyes-

DEADLINE NOW SET IN STONE
Okay guys, the numbers of submissions that I've been getting have picked up considerably so APRIL 23 IS THE CONCRETE SET IN STONE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS
. Anything you send in after that will go into the second issue. So, keep that in mind! Also, Bamboozle Fest is happening in a little less than a month, so if you'd like to say hi to me or (hopefully) pick up an issue of the zine, don't be shy! I'll be posting photos of myself in the coming weeks so you'll know who to look for.
EDIT: More graphics guys! This time, a header and userinfo banner made by akaka
and here are the links!

Opening the Zine to Fiction!
Okay, guys so I've opened the zine to accept works of fiction. There are a few rules, though.
1. No band slash or Waycest
. Personally, I'm not a fan of either, but I'm keeping it out of the zine because I want the guys to be able to read it and not be weirded or grossed out by anything in it. And to be more specific, no het pairings that include the guys either
. Completely original characters only
2. For now, the maximum length of your works of fiction is 3 pages.
3. I'm asking that all works be sent to me via email in Microsoft Word format, if possible.
4. Since the zine is monthly, feel free to write stories that will be part of a series.
5. No straight up smut
, but I don't think anyone would write any if they can't have a band pairing.
Okay, since I'm not allowing fan fiction, you may be asking yourself, "well, what can I write?" And the answer is, stories based on songs, or a general theme behind the band. I'm thinking about having a monthly fiction theme where we'll have a vote to pick one song and whoever wants to submit fiction, writes it around that particular song, what do you think?
Links to Deviantart Communities
Anyone in the mood to do some footwork? If so, you guys can do me a huge favor. Carla (I don't know your lj username if you're here, sorry!) sent me a boatload of links from deviantart communities that are MCR related. I want to make an organized effort to speak to as many artists in these communities as I possibly can to see how many of them would be interested in sending in art. Here are the links:
So nobody goes after the same people 12 times, I'd like to take lists of volunteers as far as who wants to cover which community and how many people they're going to talk to. So, if you'd like to help, let me know on this post. Thanks!

Ok everyone. as I'm sure you already know, the tentative deadline is fast approaching.
(to remind everyone, that is APRIL 23
please make sure you're emailing Mallory with all of your imput. Essays and Poems. For now, make sure it's all nonfiction
.. (no fan fics for the time being)
any questions, please talk to a mod. I'm also available, if you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment to this post.
Thanks again, and make sure you check out the awesome banners and icons made by the fellow members, and represent wewillcarryon
on your own LJ.

Any writers available?
So I've decided to make a comic for the Zine; only problem is, try as I might, my story-telling abilities SUCK
It would be wonderful if anyone wanted to tag-team/colaborate!
I do art, someone does story line? Even IDEAS are welcome!
And I don't want anything too long~ [to make things easy for the zine].
I was thinking it would be cool to take the concept from The Black Parade [revolving around the Patient, but band members are woven into the story as different characters..BOB SHOULD BE A LIMO DRIVER! Hah. XD] BUT I AM OPEN FOR IDEAS!
Thanks a ton [<3]
icons for the community
ok everyone. i made some icons for the community per Mallory's request :)( ON TO THE ICONSCollapse )NOTE TO THE MODS
a friend of mine is going to help with the community layout. and for the icons.... if you're looking for something different, please let me know. I've got some friends we are really creative, if these dont' work for you :)
I don't know if it's too late now, but school was being a pain and I couldn't make this until now. I saw the awesome banner and flyer en_muerte
made, so if you can't use this banner now, that's okay, I just didn't want to NOT make anything since I promised I would.
Anyway here's what I came up with:
And the link is here:http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h268/Blind_Ace/KickAssBanner.jpg
So if anyone wants to use it, I guess just credit: Current Mood: accomplished

Post Secret type thing?
I'm wondering how interested you guys would be in adding a post secret type feature to the zine? Basically fan-made postcards that will be featured in the zine. Let me know what you think.
Does anyone have or know where I can find a list of up to date MCR sites so that I can contact them about promoting the zine? So far I've contacted the Immortality Project but I haven't heard back yet.
EDIT: Nevermind! I found a pretty good list, but feel free to suggest any of your fave sites and I'll contact them. I'm also still looking for layouts guys. If you have any friends out there who can do something simple and nice, have them do it. It doesn't have to be a work of art, just something to get us through for a while.
