Vote on the Themes for Azure Week 2022

We’re finalizing the themes for Azure Week 2022 and we need your help!

Head on over here: https://forms.gle/TecDTDQzArJSW7QQ9

We’re narrowing it down to seven theme sets, so you can have “dual” themes for each of the seven days of Azure Week, Sept 16-22, 2022!

Vote for your favorites—it takes less than 5 minutes! Once we have all seven themes, we’ll determine what the overall theme of the week is and start sharing the themes with everyone in prep for the week!

Azure Week 2021, the celebration of Seto Kaiba and Anzu Mazaki/Téa Gardner started September 16, 2021 right here on Blue Eyes and Apricots and around the Web! Check out the official Azure Week 2021 page here for details on our Discord server, this year’s themes, extra challenges, and more!

Recent Updates

As of February 2022, I’ve now embedded an RSS feed of the latest fics tagged ‘Kaiba Seto/Anzu Mazaki|Téa Gardner’ on the Archive of Our Own, which should bring you the latest Azureshipping fics. However, the simplified feed does not display any additional tags or other information (yet), so read at your own risk! Let me know if you’d like me to add similar feeds (where possible) for fanart or other sites.

I’ve fixed errors with the Last Updated date not showing properly, and the codes not displaying, because I got rid of the plugin that created the code galleries. Whoops! I’d love to get more codes, so if you have any Azureshipping fanart or ready-made buttons to donate, please do!

I’ve updated several of the forms throughout the site, updated the fields on the Join/Register and Update Your Profile pages, and hopefully made joining the fanlisting easier– though you DO still have to confirm your email address! Please use the Contact form if you have any problems with ANY of the forms or pages on this site.
