Love YA lit? Love writing fic?  Love writing fic for YA lit and wondering why there doesn’t seem to be very much for most books?

Join the YAlit100 challenge!

  • You MAY claim more than one table at a time.
  • You MAY do crossovers, fusions, and AU fic! If you intend to write crossovers and/or fusions, claim the table for the MAIN WORK (so, for example, if you want to write 100 godly-parent-fusion fics, your claim would be “Percy Jackson,” unless all 100 fics would star characters from Anna and the French Kiss or something. SOME ASPECT of all 100 fics must be constant for the book/table you choose!)
  • Fics can be ANY LENGTH. You may write 3-sentence fics, drabbles, one-shots, six-word-ficfests, whatever. The whole point is just to encourage more YA lit fic! :)

So far, there are just the first few tables up, but I will be adding my usual amount of ALL THE YA BOOKS.  :P  Join and/or Watch the
comm on LJ for updates, and make sure to suggest any book(s) that you may think I’ll miss or that you want to see sooner!

Ok, so this community looks pretty much dead, but I might as well shamelessly pimp out a little mix I made for the book, just on the off chance anyone still looks here. . .

It's uh...it's me again...

So I made a forum for fans of Looking for Alaska. And so far...I'm the only member. And it's bumming me out. So join me? ¿Por favor?

Yay! Join me!

So, this community is quite dead, but I'm going to try anyway!

A friend and I are thinking of starting a Looking for Alaska Role Play game on Livejournal...is anyone interested in joining us?

We don't have the premise yet, but we can always negotiate that after we have a basic cast. The only thing is, which I know will bum a lot of you out, is that Miles and Alaska are taken. But we can use a Colonel, Lara, Takumi, Sara, any of the weekend warriors, etc, etc.

So! If you are interested, either comment or message me and we shall talk. :D

(And, Mods, if this isn't allowed, feel free to delete or yell at me or whatever.)

My name is Lauren and Looking for Alaska is one of my favorite books. I first read it a few months ago at the beginning of my second semester in college and recently picked it up again to read it a second time because I love it so much.

I'm so happy that someone made a community for this book! I'm surprised I haven't found it sooner!

So, to start a little discussion, I'm curious. As you guys probably know, this book is being turned into a movie. I'm pretty okay with that, as the entire time I read it, I pictured it as a film...however, I feel like the actress they pick to play Alaska needs to be absolutely PERFECT for the part. Otherwise, it could ruin the entire film.

Does anyone have any ideas or preferences as to who should play her? I saw the movie Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist a few weeks ago and while the movie itself wasn't as good as I thought it would be, I couldn't help but think that the girl who played Norah looked exactly like how I had pictured Alaska to be. I think she could possibly pull it off.

Any other ideas?

Anyway, I'm so excited that there's a community for this book! I'm in love with it!

Peace and love.

-P.S. - There aren't many existing tags, so I created some tags of my own. If they aren't what you had in mind, let me know and I will certainly edit them.

Welcome to Looking For Alaska, a fan community for John Green and his amazing novel, Looking For Alaska. His other work, such as An Abundance of Katherines and Paper Towns, are also welcome here, but remember that the main focus is Looking For Alaska. You're free to post anything (from fanfiction, art, and videos to music, discussion, and dream casts) as long as it follows the rules in the next section of this post.

About the Author: John Green has been an editor for mental_floss and a contributor to National Public Radio's All Things Considered. His favorite last words are those of Oscar Wilde. Dying in a garishly decorated hotel room, Wilde turned to a friend and said, "Either this wallpaper goes - or I do." When he was little, he wanted to be an earthworm scientist. (There is a word for such a person: oligochaetologist.) But he killed off his entire earthworm farm due to his general inability to care for pets. Later, he made a list of things he was good at. The list included "telling lies" and "sitting." So he became a writer. Looking For Alaska is his first novel. (taken from the back of his novel and his website)
