Question for DA folks

So one of my favorite events on the Final Fantasy fandom calendar is the Kiss Battle. It's happened every February, in some form or another, for many years now, since 2007 I think? And I dearly hope it runs again this year, because it's always a highlight for me.

The other day, I got to wondering: is there anything similar in Dragon Age fandom?

And if not, should there be?

One thing that gives me pause is the apparent migration of DA fandom to Tumblr. Tumblr is great for a lot of fandom projects, but probably not this one -- it's similar in format to a kinkmeme, and so it depends on threaded comments and replies. Dreamwidth would be the perfect platform (or maybe LJ, but the recent changes to the commenting system make following comment threads wonky at best), but in my experience, there isn't a whole lot of DA fandom activity here, even less than on LiveJournal. Would people even participate if it were hosted on DW?

Anyway, I'm probably putting the cart in front of the horse with this concern; the most relevant question right now is whether a critical mass of people would be interested at all. What do you all think? Or, if such a community/project already exists, please point me there! Thanks. :)

I need to figure out Tumblr and get into Dreamwidth. I've just been using LJ for so many years now I'm so comfortable on it. But now my fandoms seem to be moving away. ;_;

But I couldn't tell you if something like that exists for Dragon Age. As far as I know it doesn't. I'd be interested, just not in February, or at least this February. This semester is my senior thesis and I suspect barbarians will be taking my attention instead of fandom.

I've been on LJ forever as well, but I find that DW is basically all of LJ's functions, but better implemented. If everyone would move, I would happily set up camp there permanently, but too many people and especially communities are still here for me to be willing to give it up completely.

Tumblr is fun, but it's very different. It doesn't really work as a straight-up substitute for LJ, because it's so much harder to have a conversation there. People manage it anyway, because having conversations is what people like to do on social media platforms, but it's not designed for that function at all.

Glad to know that you're interested! The FF kiss battle is traditionally in February to align with Valentine's Day, but if we got critical mass to do the project at another time, I'd be up for suggestions.
