I just want to thank everyone who participated in any way in the fest/comm!

You can check the fills post if you want to support those authors. If you are ever in need of inspiration in the future you can look at the prompt list again, and if you have any Kon-related posts you want to make here, the community will remain open.

Do you have any songs that remind you of Kon in some way? I'm including a little mix behind the cut. Please comment with any links of your own to other mixes or to individual songs you think are appropriate! Or just tell us what they are and discuss!

Firstly, I'm thinking of extending this thing through July, because there haven't been very many fills for all the lovely lovely prompts we got. Hopefully giving a bit more time will get some more results. What do you folks think? Also, I encourage you to join the comm if you haven't already, as some posts may be member-locked, and I will also open up posting to all members so if anyone has any fun ideas, go ahead and post them! After the end of the official fest the comm will continue to exist that way for all Kon-related items.

Next, scans!

What are some of your favorite canon Kon moments, especially the ones that best serve to illustrate his essential Kon nature? The little things in amongst the plots and relationships that really show who he is?

scientist tied in steel bow knot

A certain clone has just escaped from his tube and tied up the scientist guarding him, as you do. With a steel pipe, as you do if you have superstrength. In a pretty little bow, as you do if you are Kon. It's a nice little touch in one of his first panels that shows what they were going for when they introduced him.

Round Robin Fic!

Well, really, Round Kon Fic! Take the beginning here and add on to it in comments. Then add on to what other people write in comments. Eventually we will have at least one fic!


Superboy was sitting on the sofa watching No Signal when the TV monitor burst into a brilliant, multi-colored shower of sparkles. He leapt away but the sparks rushed outward and engulfed him.

Suddenly he was floating (floating!) in a strange mist of static. In front of him were three boys all with his same insignia. One boy was dressed like him, but slightly larger, and had another lounge-room swirling vaguely behind him. The second was wearing a flannel shirt over the S-shield tee and backed by an image of a barn. The third was dressed in tights and spandex and a leather jacket and many belts in front of a ghostly beach.

"Dude!" said the leather jacket one.

"Wow," said the barn one.

"Oh, shit," said the large one.

It's June, it's the month, it is now ~officially~ 18 years of Kon!

You've probably all seen anonymous love memes before, yes? Well, if you haven't, what happens is that people leave their own names or other people's names in comments, and then go through and reply to comments and tell everyone how awesome they are and how much they love them.

But this is a Kononymous Love Meme, so it's with a twist!

Step 1: Leave a top-level comment with your own username, someone else's name, or a fictional character's name. You may be logged-in or anon for this part.

Step 2: Make anon replies to these comments as Kon, telling people what you love about them and how amazing they are! Pick any version of Kon you want, from any medium or era! Please make these comments anon! Just channel the Kon-love!

Check the first thread here for an example.

Discussion #2: MBTI

Sometimes I like to run fictional characters through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and decide what personality type I think they are (Myers & Briggs Foundation, MBTI Wikipedia entry). Personally, I've decided Kon is an ESFP (extraversion, sensing, feeling, perceiving). It's a pretty good description of him: ESFP on wiki, elsewhere, and more. (Also, I think comics-Bart is an ENFP, and Smallville-Lex is an INTJ (and a Scorpio).) Yes, whatever, I have to keep myself entertained somehow. So, a poll! And also comment!

I'm posting this early in case it comes in handy later.

If Kon were a drink, what would be in it?

I'm not sure myself, I just know it would be pretty strong. But what does he taste like? Sunshine and citrus? Red and black licorice? Minty fresh? Cinnamon sharp? Sweet tropical fruit? Cream and sugar?

I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to run this whole comm; since I'm planning on doing stuff for the next two months, there is lots of time and space for input from you lovely folks! I do want this to seem like a very long, virtual birthday party, so I'm trying to think of games we can play online, and ways we can maybe get together to read/watch the same thing at once. What are some activities you would like to do? Things I'm considering are recs, scans, music, round-robin fic, and silly discussion posts. Possible games include hangman, puzzles, a scavenger hunt, pictionary, and Kon Has Never. But I'm not sure how to virtualize all of them! I'll probably post once or twice a week, but I don't want to set too firm a schedule. So please comment with any suggestions, questions, anything!

Now on to Hangman. For those who don't know, each dash represents a letter, and you leave a comment guessing one letter. If it's in the word, I'll reveal it. If it's not, the little guy gains a limb. When he has fully materialized on the platform, he is dead. If the word is guessed, he is saved! If you guess the word, you win, uh, the satisfaction of heroically saving his life?

(For DW, it's actually easiest if you leave Hangman guesses on the LJ post, so all of them are in the same place. I don't want to discriminate against DW! I love it best! But more people are watching the LJ comm. All other suggestions can definitely go here!)
