Portland Metro Area Yaoi Fen
Saturday, January 5, 2008
Hi there! I see that this community has been inactive for a long long long time, but hopefully someone is still reading.
I'm a diehard slasher relocating to Portland, but I know absolutely nothing about the city. I have a million questions (okay, just 5 really), and this community seemed like the closest thing to a good place to post them. (I hope this sort of post is allowed, if not please delete this entry, or ask me to!)
( questionsCollapse )
So, TL;DR version: I'd love to hear about anything slash/yaoi-fannish going on in or around Portland. I'm afraid I'm going to feel super isolated until I can find out where other fans like me shop and hang out, plus I'd like to have some interesting places to show visiting fannish friends. :)
Thanks in advance for any input!

10:17PM - Hi, I'm full of LAME~
Really, I ought to have started this once finals finished, but I'm a super slacker, times a million.
It is time, once again, for the PMA Yaoifen to attempt a meet up. In the past, we've met at Uwajimaya in Beaverton, unfortuantely, the restaurant that is (was) attached is now moving elsewhere, so it doesn't work as well for going and having lunch as a group. I welcome any and all suggestions (Powells on Burnside has been mentioned in the past) for a "central" meeting place.
As for date: I know the weekend of the 21st/22nd of January won't work, is there another prefered day? Other than that, my days are pretty open.
Feedback from other fen is most appreciated, lest I make all the decisions myself. ^_^

Is anyone still around in this community? T___T please say yes.

There were tenative, sketchy, in-theory plans to do a meetup today?
But I think nothing ever actually came of it. And wasn't at least one person protesting that weekend meetups were generally impossible for her?
So: I'd like to put in for a weekday evening meetup, maybe this upcoming Thursday or Friday? Get together for dinner and/or drinks and/or anime and/or manga shopping etc? Anyone? Maybe some red-hot Friday Night Yaoifen Roller Skating? Maybe just episodes of Loveless a la groupe so we can argue about what the heck is going on?

Anyone who didn't show up saved all kinds of money and probably got some sleep at some point or another. BUT YOU ALSO MISSED OUT, LADIES. Be there or be straight for the hotly-anticipated May 21st Meetup!

11:46AM - [meet-up]
Sorry ladies, I need to stay home and play catch-up. I don't get enough time at home during the week. Looks like the 21st is better for me, after all!
I have some marketing and maintenance stuff to catch up on, as well as some other responsibilities I've taken on that need to get sorted out.
Hope you have a great time! =D

6:14PM - [meet-up]
Yeah, so we've got two opt-outs for Saturday the 7th, two opt-ins for Saturday the 7th, and one person running on four hours of sleep incapable of making decisions.
That leaves...dammit, someone else decide. Mod?
I'm afraid something's come up, and I'm going to have to back out of any meet-ups for May. I hope y'all report on the fun you have, though!

5:50PM - [meet-up]
All right, folks, 4 votes were for Saturday the 21st; three votes were for Saturday the 7th.
Both Sunya and I have suddenly discovered ourselves unable to do the 14th for wildly different reasons.
Saturday the 7th or Saturday the 21st: discuss.
5:18AM - Poll take 2
Okay, folks, I narrowed down some dates and locations, and I think I figured out why my ticky-poll wouldn't work.
Please to visit this entry and vote on the pma_yaoifen poll, and I'll post the results here.
And, heck, we can discuss the next meet-up some more right here.
So far I count:
interested in the meet-up, does that sound about right?

5:07PM - Newbie Intro
So here's some info about me:
( Read more...Collapse )
That turned out pretty long. Thank god for LJ cuts. (Gods forbid I should try to restrain myself! ^_^)
ETA: Originally posted this to my own journal. See what I mean? *points at head* Swiss cheese.
10:46AM - May meet-up
Is it possible? *gaspshock* Do we actually have the chance to revive a community dedicated to local animanga gay porn lovers?
I think we do!
Seize the chance! Vote now! Join us in objectifying men through the admiration of gay erotica at our next meetup.
It's a ticky box poll, because everyone loves tickys. RIGHT? Besides having a general love of ticky boxes, this also means you can select more than one day, or more than one place to enjoy the company of other yaoi-fen.
When should we have our next meetup?
Where should the meet-up take place?
If you have a date/time suggestion or preferred locale other than those on the poll, please enter it in comments for discussion. We are nothing if not...flexible.

7:21PM - Whee!!
I just had the most awesome pma_yaoifen meet-up with sex-kitten sunyaharjis and Mistress chaosraven!
In point of fact, it was my FIRST pma_yaoifen meet-up *embarrassed cough* and an extreme amount of BIG FUN was had!
For all y'all who missed out on the fun: we went to Sanbi's and had lunch, and had the extreme luck of sitting in the booth with the phallic mushroom painting. Also, sunyaharjis got agedashi tofu in a
squid penis bowl. OBVIOUSLY IT WAS FATE.
We continued terrorizing the staff by visiting Kinokuniya's afterward. I was unable to get my manga fix on, so after we purchased some items from Uwajimaya grocery, we formed a caravan and went to the Cedar Hills Blvd Borders, browsed through the aisles, and I lost $50 somewhere between the manga section and the cafe. I picked up "Desire" by Maki Kazumi and Yukine Honami. I'll let ya'll know if it's any good.
sunyaharjis snagged a nook with squooshy couches in the cafe, and I brought out my
Porn Machine laptop so that we could watch a couple of episodes of Sukidakara Shouganai, or "Sukisyo." It has almost ALL of my favorite seiyuu in it. ♥
We had so much fun, we're going to do it again in a couple of weeks. Say, May 14th. Sound good, ladies?
Look, sunyaharjis, I'm using the gay=yay icon!
I had a great time (really! More than my rude, stiff, formal self could freely admit in person!) and I'm totally looking forward to MORE. Also I went ahead and friended my MEETUP PALS, because they are Good People that everyone should know and love (and show up to meetups for...)
WAI KOYASU thanks for Suskiyo and don't forget to tell me what all you guys are looking for in terms of series. Ping Pong Ball Club was the last series discussed... so it's the only one I remember. :/

5:08PM - Hi there!
Hey, I just joined up. I was wondering if there are still meetups for this group?
I just downloaded Gankutsuou and I was looking for people to watch it with... it's pretty slashable... But I'd be up for a run to Kino's or watching some of the classics or just getting together to talk about fanart and fic and doujin and all that good stuff. (And plus I'm looking for a crowd to go to Y-con with...eventually.)
Anyway you can email me or catch me on AIM if you'd ever like to chat and if anyone will be at the animepdx meeting tomorrow I'll be there too! ^_^

1:43AM - Meetup!
OK, the plans, such as they are: Meg and fyredancer are meeting around 1pm Sunday, and going to Kino's. We should be there about 1:15 or 1:30.
I have no idea where we're eating, probably at Sanbi or else the food court, but we're definitely running wildly amuck at Kino's.
Look for the slightly wild-eyed female with short red hair and glasses and probably a Grumpy Bear jacket.

11:41AM - HAY GUYZ
I'll be up in PDX this weekend, so is anybody up for a Kino's rampage on Sunday? I'll be in Beaverton around 12:45 and meeting with Tay in the Borders at Cedar Hill around 1ish, and then we're going to Kino's.
So if you want to meet up and point and laugh at me as I wibble desperately around the Japanese bookstore (";_____; SO POOR! BUT LOVE MODE! -- Aw, crap, do I HAVE to break down and buy DNAngel 10? ;______; NOOOO SHINYYYYY"), let me know so we can plot.
Friday, January 21, 2005
Please let this community still be alive. I am the only one I know who enjoys yaoi, though I only recently started getting into it.
I am always up for hanging out, yaoi, and hanging out + yaoi.
Let's do shit!
