erasureathon round 3 masterlist!

posted by: zempasuchil in erasureathon

It's been a while since the last pinch-hitters posted, and we only have one rogue erasure still unfinished, but as it is for someone who ended up dropping out, I am going to declare this post something of a closing ceremony. I want to congratulate you all on your hard work, and thank you for coming together and doing this! I have met a bunch of new fabulous people through this, and it's been wonderful to see all of your fabulously creative poetry-art creations! Hope to see you all next round!

Instead of confetti and balloons, I have a masterlist for ye, sorted by the eraser's name alphabetically.

Erasureathon round three: Forty-three erasures by thirty-five erasers :DCollapse )

a selfish person.

Jan. 14th, 2012 | 01:56 pm
posted by: xenoamorist in erasureathon

Title: “a selfish person.”
Original text erased: "But Everywhere"
Original text by: fatalnocturne
Erased by: xenoamorist
Fandom of original text: Final Fantasy VII
Fandom: None, but you can still see Final Fantasy VII if you squint.
Summary: You prayed for this.
Notes: I did this piece of erasure shortly after I signed up for erasureathon but didn't bother to crosspost it anywhere. I wasn't assigned fatalnocturne, but I'm good friends with her and love her work; this story in particular lent itself well to an erasure poem. Contains an accompanying illustration.

( to give everything could only end in tears / wish / and destroy )

poll: for science!

posted by: zempasuchil in erasureathon

I have some questions for you guys. Results are visible to all; I believe you can vote anon? I opened the poll to everyone. I'm curious about the participants in erasureathon and your processes. I'd love it if everyone could answer at least some of the questions - I know the age one is a little personal, but honestly as far as I know doing erasure poetry in a digital format is totally new and I am curious to the span of you guys's ages. I wonder if there is some correlation.

We still have three people working on erasures - keep on at it, folks! I will post a masterlist when everyone is done. In the meantime:

ETA: okay somehow when I made this I did not manage to realize it was hilariously bad in the age question part. So if your age lies on the border I would ask you to pick the higher bracket that your age is included in. Or just laugh and scroll past.

Poll #1810640 erasureathon participants

How old are you?

I prefer not to answer
younger than 16
older than 32

Are you a graphic artist (use programs like Paint Tool SAI, PaintShop Pro, or Photoshop?)

basically only MS Paint

Are you a traditional media artist?


How did you create your erasure poem?

Graphics software
Word processing software
Paper and pencil
Paper and other media (paint, markers, etc)

Anything else you'd like to add to your answers?

Thank you all! This has been fabulous <3

This is an erasure I made of someone's fic that just struck me.


Thanks to zempasuchil for allowing an unsignedup person to post an erasure, because she's awesome. :)

two erasures! Caesar's In The White House and When The Man for tree

Jan. 7th, 2012 | 01:30 pm
posted by: mrinalinee in erasureathon

Title: Caesar's In The White House
Original text(s) erased: Capacity, Out of the Forest, In the Family of Things, Instructions, Alchemy, The Arrival and the Reunion, Everywhere in the Dark, and Five Times David Duchovny Said Goodbye to Gillian Anderson
Erased by: mrinalinee
Original text by: tree
Fandom (of original text): X-Files, X-Files RPF
Fandom (of erasure): X-Files
Notes: The erasure is set up so that Instructions forms the backbone, so to speak, with the rest sort of...interspersed between its parts. I've changed the order of words twice, minutely, messed with spacing in a few areas, and deleted blocks of text where they were too block-of-texty, but other than that, I've made no changes to the shape of the fics.

Title:When The Man
Original text(s) erased: Everywhere in the Dark
Erased by: mrinalinee
Original text by: tree
Fandom (of original text): X-Files
Fandom (of erasure): X-Files
