DEC Scan Journal : February 2012
4 Learning journal These self-confessed shy girls have found their voices and share their love of fan fiction on their blog, Fantasy fan fiction <www.det.nsw.edu.au/blog/ 258571-fantasyfanfiction/>, with the descriptor: Peppercorn Feat Nuggets are pioneers who want to inspire our audience. We are young, we are inspirational, writing fantasy stories and anything else that's creative. Read and enjoy. Chatting via blogED, the entire group manages to meet once or twice a Term. Stories, poems and artwork are shared, along with writing tasks, such as The magic story and Little Miss Blue. Here is an excerpt from Huang's The magic story. The following blog entry by Bubble Nugget is just one of many that sum up the shared excitement for reading and writing and the camaraderie of this special group. Victor Davidson, teacher librarian at Birrong Girls High School, NSW, introduces the Peppercorns featuring Nuggets, a group of 15 girls from Years 7 to 9 who have a passion for reading, writing and community. @ victorjd Fantasy fan fiction and community The Magic Story Yuki was walking along a path that she made up. She did not know exactly where she was going, but as long as she was walking in the opposite direction from where her parents' home was, she decided that she would be fine. She had a backpack filled with her things and necessities she would need in order to survive the so-called 'real world'... The world she lived in felt quite artificial and absurd. Yuki did not like that type of world.
