Stitches in Time
A SoRiku Fashion Zine! Through the power of love and passion, we aim to produce a zine featuring a plethora of illustrations of the characters in period clothing, as well as an overarching story to follow along in a fun immersive time travel scenario!
We're a digital zine planning to split our revenue between profit and a charity (to be decided during produciton). Please follow us on social media for more updates, and thank you so much for your continued interest.~
Below is a list of our moderators~ We are so thrilled to make this zine a reality and bring our incredible writers and artists to the forefront! We look forward to working with you!^^

Below is our tentative schedule as a rough estimate of what production will look like, even if the dates change during the course of production. We realize that things are very chaotic outside of fandom right now, and will be for months to come. As such, this schedule is subject to change no matter what, and will allow as much time as possible between check ins for contributors to complete their pieces between their busy schedules offline.

Will gender nonconforming fashion be allowed?
Yes, absolutely! We welcome and encourage any way you wish to present the characters.<3
Is there an age requirement?
There will be an age requirement of 18+ to participate in the creation of this zine.
What cultures are allowed in the zine?
Any fashion style from anywhere is welcome, so long as you are not doing anything offensive, insensitive, inappropriate or culturally appropriative with it. We ask that contributors please be considerate and respectful of people’s cultures, especially if they are not your own. (Out of respect for this rule, religious wear will be off limits.)
If any content is deemed offensive, contributors will be asked to change it immediately. Understand as well that any malicious intent to create bigoted/offensive content will result in immediate expulsion.
Will the zine be sfw?
The zine will be sfw only. While some revealing clothing will be allowed, we ask that you do not put the characters in any sexual content for this project.
Will there be an overarching plot?
Yes, there will be a simple overarching plot, designed to create a simple through-line while granting writers as much creative freedom as possible to write their short stories. So long as writers mind the frame story, and keep our themes in mind, they are free to write Sora and Riku exploring any situation. :)
Will this zine have a no harassment policy?
Yes, strictly. We will not condone any harassment, direct or indirect, of any kind toward our contributors or followers. Anyone participating in cruel behavior will be expelled from the zine immediately and blocked by our accounts.
Will there be physical merch/zine copies available?
As of right now, we are only officially a digital zine, with digital merch. However, with enough mods on board, this is subject to change, and we'll be thrilled if it does.~ Regardless of that, we are determined to ensure contributors will be able to purchase a physical copy of the zine. :3
Is this zine for charity or profit?
This decision took much deliberation among mods, but we have finally settled on doing a split between profit and charity. The charity will be determined by the mods and contributors within the server and announced at a later date.
