Ladies and gentlemen, SuperFolders of all ages, the Origami Yoda Expanded Universe team would like to present you with something new, something fresh, something… marvelous.
That’s right! We are officially announcing the arrival of the the OYEU’s newest universe of stories – the Marvel Origami Universe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I, SuperFolder CJ, have the great privilege of working alongside SuperFolders Camster and Noah on this project. However, we need YOUR help (literally the help of ALL you people who are reading this) to make it happen. I’ll explain this in a moment.
This very well might be the greatest thing that’s happened to the OYEU. Big changes are coming. But they’re good changes.
You see, if I can be completely honest with all of you, we have entered a Dark Age of sorts, where there is an immense lack of SuperFolders and Origami Yoda fandom. But we want to BRING THAT BACK. Camster, Noah, and I, with the approval of SuperFolder JC himself, are trying to bring new life to the EU.
Now, this DOES NOT mean we’re done with Origami Star Wars stories. FEAR NOT! The OYEU continues to live on. The MOU is not a threat to the OYEU, but an expansion of it. We will finish Volume 3 of Origami Yoda and the Bounty Hunters tales eventually. I promise. For now, we are putting those stories on hold for just a little while longer so we can pursue work on the Marvel Origami Universe (MOU).
By the way, the MOU is not limited to the events and characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Basically, we can use anyone and anything from the HUGE Marvel Multiverse to work with. So that’s pretty stooky!
Now, here’s the juicy part – the part where you come in. Actually, you know what, let me divide this part into several parts…
1. EVERYONE can create a character name for the MOU and a character with THAT name WILL be in one or more of the MOU stories. And I’m not just talking about cameos. I’m talking about heroes to supporting characters to villains. COMMENT BELOW YOUR CHARACTER NAME ON THIS POST. (Yes, it can be your own first name but preferably not your last name please. Use a fake last name.)
2. We are in DESPERATE NEED OF WRITERS. Noah has graciously taken the job of writing many of the MOU stories. Camster and I are also helping. But there are SO many more. If you want to write something, EMAIL US AT: email@example.com. There are no first dibs. You will be randomly assigned a story to write. That way no one feels like they got the short end of the stick. Everyone has a fair chance. As of now, three phases, or Folds, are planned. While Fold 1 is full, writers are needed for the latter two. We will eventually announce the writers along with the timeline for the Folds. That will be in the near future, so don’t forget to email us ASAP!
3. We also really need ILLUSTATORS AND ORIGAMI-FOLDERS! For illustrators: instead of doodling on pages like in the original Origami Yoda book, we just want drawings that depict significant events or origami characters of the MOU. For origami-folders: we need people to fold origami characters for the covers of the stories! Once again, you can EMAIL US AT: firstname.lastname@example.org. Email us and tell us you want to be an illustrator or origami-folder, and we will randomly assign you something or someone to create. Illustrators, please, be as creative as you want with your painting/drawing (as long as it looks somewhat realistic and not totally abstract). Folders, put your best effort into making the origami character look waffle-tastic! Origami instructions are not mandatory, but appreciated!
ALRIGHTY THEN! That’s all I’ve got for now! Stay tuned for a #ThrowbackThursday-style teaser for our first MOU story coming within the week, as well more announcements about both the MOU and the OYEU!!!
