Currently being referred to as "G-Tekketsu" (G Blood and Iron), the countdown to the new Gundam series reveal finishes tomorrow!

Looking forward to seeing what this might be about --

Check out the suit design they've been slowly revealing, and whatever else may crop up post-reveal, at the official site:


I'm liking that face sculpt and v-fin design but I want to see that beastie assembled :D

Our first discussion topic! Yay!

And what better way to kick off than with the question: How did you get started with Gundam?

What was your first series? Did you start with a series, or maybe model kits? Browsed around a little? Maybe it was a fandom-first sort of thing?

If it's beginnings and you, feel free to share here.

Title: A Moment's Consideration
Series: Gundam Wing
Wordcount: 383
Characters: Sandrock
Prompt: 'beginnings'
Summary: A certain amount of disgruntlement is to be expected when you've been left out of planning stages, knocked about and generally ignored. But sometimes, all it takes is one little thing to turn it around ...

No one had asked her opinion, of course. )

All prompts may be tackled at any time. There is no maximum word count or minimum qualifications for visual media of any sort.

New prompts will be posted every other week, somewhere near mid-week.

Since this is the first prompt, it's only fitting that it's: beginnings

Have fun!

Hi, [community profile] gundamstories!

After a lot of random talk, along with a lot of Gundam-y activity so far this year, I thought it was time to reinvent and revitalize this community.

• This is everyone's community. If you want to host a re/watch, post discussion or news or anything, please feel free!

• Anonymous commenting is going to be ON -- please do not abuse this or it will be turned off.

• Basic rules are in the profile.

• Fanwork prompts (100+ words/no maximum for writing, no minimum qualifications for visual creations) will be posted bi-weekly, though any Gundam fics/art/etc. are welcome here.

• Discussion posts will be posted bi-weekly as well.

• Everything Gundam is welcome!

Whew! Aside from all of that, if you're looking for Gundam stuff to do, [personal profile] nanslice is hosting a weekly Gundam Wing rewatch on her journal. We're on episodes 11-12 this weekend. The first half of Turn-A Gundam came out in June! If anyone is interested in a group viewing, let me know.

• fail/succeed prompt ficlet. Apologies to anyone who got this twice.

Fandom: Gundam Wing
Disclaimer: I don't own GW and am not making a profit from it.
Characters/Pairing: Zechs, Treize.
Rating: general
Summary: Chess, sunlight, responsibility.
Notes: This is a rework of a much older ficlet which is no longer available. Set well before the start of the series; I don't think this actually plays well with canon timelines.

While there is no need to 'claim' any of these, if making a public comment about which you're working on helps with motivation (and if you would like a 'deadline', I'll give you one), feel free to comment. ^_^

Table code modified from the bingo code here.

How does the community work?

By posting lotsa Gundam stuff! Fanfic, art, discussion, icons, re-watches, macaroni-sculptures, whatever as long as it's Gundam! Previously, this was a prompt community but it wasn't very active so the prompt posts have been consolidated down (in case anyone still wants to write for them) and the space opened up to everything. If you'd like to start a project here, like a re-watch, feel free. If you'd like to suggest a project/ask about interest, that's fine too.

Which Gundam series are welcome here?

All of them. Really. Even the ones I've barely familiar with (and if I've missed one in the interests, feel free to mention it). Feel free to try your hand at Sentinel and SEED MSV, Last Outpost and Katana. It's all welcome along with Wing, Unicorn, G Gundam and all the rest.

What if I have a question not answered here?

Feel free to Prod-a-Mod.
