That's all she wrote, folks! The challenge is closed for new entries. We'll be back in a few days with the masterlist and news about amnesty!

You have just about three hours to submit your work!

Please remember to add content notes to your entry; as per the posting guidelines, you must warn if your entry contains major character death, graphic violence, and/or non-con, but you're welcome to add other warnings as you see fit. If your story requires no warnings, write "no warnings apply". This is mandatory and non-negotiable.

Also please note that your entry must be in the community moderation queue by midnight CDT. If you are asked to change something, or if your entry does not appear on the community by midnight, don't worry! All that matters is being in the queue.

Good luck!

Hello everyone! You have two days before the big deadline! You must post your entry or notify a mod before 11:59PM CDT, May 7 or be ineligible for next year's round.

As you might have noticed, we're a bit behind in answering comments. Rest assured that if you commented to tell us you were dropping out, we have your names recorded. You are fine even if you don't hear back from us!

If you have dropped out, that's okay! We will be opening up the community for late entries at some point later this month.

Go go go!

It's about that time, folks! Signups will be opening next week!

In the period leading up to signups, you are welcome to post stories to the comm that you didn't finish in time for any previous round. If you didn't post or contact a mod during the last round and are ineligible for this round, you can become eligible by posting your story during this period!

Also, if you were ineligible for the last round, congratulations! You are eligible again!

Here is the list of users who are ineligible for this round. Please check this list, and if there's an error, contact a mod immediately. Read more... )

Amnesty will be open until the end of signups. Again, please notify a mod as soon as possible if there is an error. Otherwise, get excited!

Hello and welcome to the amnesty round! From now until just before the 2016 round opens (which will be some time in March or April), feel free to post any outstanding entries to the comm. That includes entries from any round that were not posted, as well as bonus fics, if your prompt was just too good to do once!

If you did not finish in the 2015 round and did not notify a mod, you can regain your eligibility for the 2016 round by posting in this period. No need to notify us, even if you defaulted previously; just post and we'll take care of the rest!

Please follow the standard guidelines. As always, remember your warnings statement and don't tag your own posts.

Happy posting!

That's all folks! If you put a post in the moderation queue before midnight and it was rejected, please submit it to the comm again. If not, sit back and relax! We'll have the masterlist and information on amnesty in the next few days.
sabinetzin: (marvel - by the hoary effing hosts)
[personal profile] sabinetzin
This is your two hour warning! Get those posts in, or let us know you're not going to be done.

Your post only has to be in the moderation queue by midnight CDT. If we reject your post, you are not disqualified. Fix it and resubmit. The most common reasons for rejection are lack of rating and lack of warnings statement, so make sure you add them!

[personal profile] sabinetzin
Right around 24 hours to go, folks! You have until May 9 at 11:59PM CDT (when is that for me?) to submit your work or notify a mod that you're not going to finish (which you can feel free to do by PM or in the comments to this post).

Remember to follow the guidelines, and get those entries in!

Just nine more days, barflies!

As a housekeeping note, let me say again: do not tag your own posts. Let us do it for you. If you do it on DW, we're going to take them off anyway while you're in the moderation queue, so save yourself the work! Tags are how we keep track of whether or not an assignment has been marked as complete. If you tag your own post, you may be marked as incomplete at the end of the round. So don't tag your posts, please, and save the trouble of having to straighten things out at the beginning of next round!

If your post has already been approved, no need to change things. Just be advised if you haven't posted yet!

Posting closes on May 9 at 11:59PM (when is that for me?). Get those works in!
sabinetzin: (marvel - talk to me)
[personal profile] sabinetzin
Posting is now open, barflies! The community is on moderated posting, so whenever you're ready, just submit your post and a mod will approve it.

Remember to follow the posting guidelines! In particular, please make sure to include a warnings statement (write "no warnings needed" if none apply) and refrain from tagging your own post.

You have until 11:59PM CDT, May 9 to post (when is that for me?). Have fun!

We're getting ready to close signups pretty soon! You have until 11:59 PM CDT (When is that for me?) to get those signups in!

We'll also be closing amnesty at the same time, so make sure to post if you want to regain your eligibility. Don't worry if your post doesn't appear by the deadline- if you are using amnesty, please post your signup directly after putting your post in the moderation queue.

The hour approaches! Make sure to sign up!

Hi all! Just a reminder that there's just about one week to go until signups (and amnesty) close! We'll be shutting down signups on 11:59 PM CDT, April 5 (When is that for me?)

So if you want to sign up and have yet to do so, you have a week to go over to the signup post and get right on that! And if you want to post something for amnesty so that you can sign up, well, you have the same amount of time.

We look forward to seeing the interesting combinations you (and our dice) come up with!

A Ficathon Goes Into A Bar


Signups: March 22 to 11:59 PM CDT, April 5 (When is that for me?)
Prompts Distributed: By April 8
Posting Opens: April 9
Last Day to Post/Notify a Mod: May 9
Masterlist Posted: Late May

FAQ
Even if you have read the rules before, read them again, as some things have changed.
(To jump to the changes, ctrl/cmd+F * or look for the red letters!)

How does this work?

Here's what you do:

1. Pick a character, any character.
2. Pick up to four fandoms that you feel comfortable writing in; the fandom your character comes from can't be any of them.

That is all you need to do. What we will do, using highly scientific methods (and by that we mean Wikipedia, our list of characters, and a bag of dice), is pick a character from one of those other fandoms to meet your character in a bar. You will then produce a fanwork from your prompt (see below for guidelines).

What?

Okay. Let's say you sign up. You pick Kara Thrace, and you feel comfortable writing in Dragon Age Inquisition, Mythbusters RPF, Blake's 7, and Agents of SHIELD.

I roll the dice, and through my magical methods, decide that the other character is Josephine Montilyet. So your prompt is, "Kara Thrace goes into a bar and meets Josephine Montilyet," and you need to produce a fanwork about it.

Further Information Under the Cut! )

I am totally on board! Sign my ass up!

Hot damn! Go directly to this post and sign your ass up!

Please, pass it around! The more the merrier!

I has a question!

Please use the comments of this post to ask! You can also PM a mod for help. Please make sure your journal is set to accept PMs from non-friends, or we may be unable to respond.

Hello, barflies! We'll be opening signups before you know it, but here are a few things to tide you over.

1. We now have a fanlore page! We'd like some notable works from each round to liven things up, so tell us your favorites!

2. We've fleshed out our guidelines on signing up for franchises. Please proceed here if you're interested in writing a long-running or particularly sprawling fandom, including Doctor Who, MCU, or Star Trek.

If you don't want to dig through it, there's also a cheat sheet in the FAQ. We won't tell.

3. Feel free to ask us any questions you might have! We're always happy to provide answers and demystify anything that needs demystification.

We're getting close to the next round!

In the period leading up to signups, you are welcome to post stories to the comm that you didn't finish in time for any previous round. If you didn't post or contact a mod during the last round and are ineligible for this round, you can become eligible by posting your story during this period!

Also, if you were ineligible for the last round, congratulations! You are eligible again!

Here is the list of users who are ineligible for this round. Please check this list, and if there's an error, contact a mod immediately. Read more... )

Amnesty will be open until the end of signups. Again, please notify a mod as soon as possible if there is an error. Otherwise, get excited!

We are looking for one new mod for intoabar!

Seeing as how we are all clearly very bad at masterlists, we are looking for a masterlist mod! The only thing you'll be responsible for is compiling the (long overdue) Fall '14 and Spring '15 masterlists. You won't be required to answer questions, handle signups, or work on tagging during the round. The masterlist generally takes a few hours to compile, but you can stretch it out over the course of the round.

Special one time offer! If you are presently ineligible because you didn't post or notify a mod by the end of the Fall '14 round, you will be given instant amnesty if you sign on as the masterlist mod!

Please comment if interested; comments are screened for your convenience. Preference will be given to people who have modded challenges before and people who need amnesty for the Spring '15 round. The Spring '15 masterlist will need to be completed in mid-May.

Join today!

ETA: We have filled the position. Thanks to everybody who volunteered!

We are done here! There are still some posts left in the moderation queue, so if you've posted, don't panic! You should see yourself shortly.

Thanks for a great round, guys! You all did a great job. We'll have a masterlist for you in a few days, so you can see all the great things that were made!
