Timeline

Sign-Ups Are Open: 26 June through 15 July 2017
Assignments Out: 19 July 2017
Stories Due: 27 August 2017
After Party: Complementary Fanworks (With Fic Author Permission) Due: 10 September 2017

If you can help us spread the word, please do!

So, how does this work?
~ This is a fic exchange. You will sign up by giving details of the kind of fic you would like to have someone create for you. You will commit to write a fic for someone else. [personal profile] eilidh17 will read all the signup comments and match fic writers with requests.
~ Comment on this post to sign up (the format is below). You don't have to have a Dreamwidth account to participate. All signups will be handled here on Dreamwidth. Assignments will be sent out via e-mail. Stories will be due 27 August 2017. However, if you finish early, you can post, and we'll leave your story in the moderation queue until the day the ficathon opens.
~ Keep your assignment secret until the deadline. We do suggest you get a beta. Options for getting a beta will be covered in a future post, or you can email or message the admins at any time about locating a beta.
~ If you have any questions about your assignment, contact [personal profile] eilidh17, or another admin, not the person you're writing for. The other admins are [personal profile] princessofgeeks and [personal profile] magickmoons.
~ Stories must be at least 1000 words, but there is no upper limit.
~ Feel free to post either here in the comm, or somewhere else with a link to your story. More details about posting will be spelled out closer to the deadline.
~ Join the comm on Dreamwidth in order to post an announcement of your fic, or the fic itself. If you aren't normally a user of Dreamwidth, contact an admin when you post your fic so that we can announce your fic here and link to it. All comm members have immediate posting access, but posting is moderated so that the fic will all be unveiled the same day.

After Party

This year, we will again hold an After Party for complementary fanworks, to allow people who create fanworks other than fanfic to participate! All fanfic writers who sign up for the ficathon will be asked whether they give permission for other artists to create related fanworks after the stories have posted.

Fan artists of all types are encouraged and urged to take a look at the signup comments and note which fan writers have given permission for complementary works to be posted during the After Party.

The deadline for these complementary works is 10 September 2017.

To announce your complementary work for the After Party, join the J/D ficathon community on DW, and then post to the community with a link to your work. Please include the title and author of the fanfic to which your work is related (and include the link if possible). If you need help joining, or don't usually use Dreamwidth, please contact one of the admins so that we can announce your fic for you on DW and link to it in the AO3 collection.

Crossposting Policy for Fic

~ Stories may be hosted on Livejournal, Dreamwidth, Archive of Our Own, or any other website. Stories may be hosted on more than one site, but please provide all links when you announce your fic. We are planning an AO3 collection for the 2017 ficathon (and by the way -- nearly all previous entries for this ficathon going back to 2003 now have subcollections by year on AO3); details will be announced as they become available. We will also create a Master List on Dreamwidth for all the stories and all the complementary works in the After Party.
~ You may announce your story anywhere you post.

Defaulting, Dropping, and Extensions

~ If you drop out without emailing eilidh17 at yahoo dot com, you will be banned from participation for the following year.
~ If you need more time to finish, simply email eilidh17 at yahoo dot com BEFORE THE DEADLINE. There will be a reasonable deadline for late fic, after which a pinch hitter will be recruited to write for your recipient. If something comes up and you can't complete the ficathon, just let [personal profile] eilidh17 know in advance of the deadline, so your recipient will get a fic from someone! We want everyone who signs up to receive a story.

For the after party, there is no signup necessary. Post an announcement of your work, by the deadline, in the DW community. That's it. A master post of complementary fanworks created for the After Party will be posted to the DW community after the deadline.

Sign-Up Form

Here is the sign-up form for fic. You can specify two things that MUST be in your story, and one optional thing that you'd like to be in your story. Also answer the IMPORTANT question: Are you willing for someone to create related fanwork(s) for your story for the After Party? You must answer YES or NO to this question. If you leave that out, the mods will hound you for an answer!

Your two requirements should be limited to items from this list (you do not need to include all these, but you may if you wish):

* a prompt -- which might be a setting (examples: "an ice planet at night", "a plane trip to D.C.", "the Land of Light"), an object (ex.: "a letter", "a dog", "a new car"), a line of dialogue (ex.: "And then I shot her!"), etc.
* an episode or season -- for example, "Beneath the Surface" or "season 5"
* a genre -- action/adventure, angst, established relationship, first time, humor, hurt/comfort, schmoop, UST, fluff, curtainfic, smarm, etc.
* a rating -- for our purposes, following the MPAA system, so G through NC-17

For your optional request, you can be as specific as you like (e.g., "Jack and Daniel are stranded on an ice planet and Teal'c and Vala come to the rescue, but only after Jack tells Daniel a deep dark secret"), but keep in mind that the writer won't be obligated to include that request in your story.

Restrictions should be things you absolutely don't want in your story. You can specify up to two.

If you only want to fill out the requirement field, that's fine; you don't have to specify optional requests or restrictions. You must answer the question regarding additional fanworks for the After Party.

As for the assignment you'll receive: please specify the maximum rating you'll write. You can write an actual rating here, or just "I'll write anything," "no sex whatsoever," "fade to black only," and so on. You can also list up to three specific things you won't write. If you've only watched up to a certain season, haven't seen earlier seasons, haven't seen the movie, etc., please make sure to note that, so we don't accidentally match you up with a season-specific request you can't write.

Note: If you list more than three things you won't write, only the first three will be considered; if you list more than two requirements, only the first two will be passed on to your author. (We apologize if that sounds overly restrictive, but please stick to the limits.)

Your comment should look like this:

Name:
Dreamwidth user name:
Email:

Requirement (#1):
Requirement (#2):
Optional Request:
Restriction (#1):
Restriction (#2):

Maximum rating you'll write:
You won't write (#1):
You won't write (#2):
You won't write (#3):

Do you give permission for another fan artist to make a work related to your fic for the After Party? (This may include such works as podfic, art, crafts, a remix or other fanfic of your fanfic, etc.): Yes or No?

Will you pinch hit? (This means being willing to be called on to write a fic to a certain prompt in the place of a writer who has defaulted, and to finish by a given deadline.) Yes or No?


For an example of a finished sign-up form, see the first comment below.

Questions? Feel free to e-mail eilidh17 at yahoo dot com.

I've made some icons, and since some of them are Harry Potter icons, I figured what better day to post them than Harry Potter day?

10 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
8 Kingsman: The Secret Service

Today is beautiful, mostly cloudy, breezy and cool.  :D  

Round 1, I took pictures and planted morning glory seeds.

Round 2, I transplanted some wild morning glories and started clearing weeds and brush around the purple-and-white garden. 

Round 3, I sowed more grass seed in the bare patch.  There is a chance of rain tonight.   I also cut more brush around the purple-and-white garden.  It's about half done now, I think.

Round 4, I cut more brush around the purple-and-white garden.  It's about 3/4 done, although I'll probably need to go back and touch up parts later.  It already looks a lot better though.

This week's half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics had only modest participation, despite having the quarter-price option. However, I do have one donor who's still picking out poetry for funds already sent, so there will be something more.


Poetry in Microfunding:
"A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics and has 15 new verses.  Aidan and Mrs. Ozenne talk more about Saraphina as she interacts with another toddler.  "Essential for Human Survival" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Cassandra and has 11 new verses.  Groundhog and Cassandra encounter one of the monks. "The Inner Transition" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies.  Valor's Widow finds out what Stylet has in his backpack.  

Weather has been cooler and pleasant here.  The nest of baby robins fledged!  :D  The cardinal nest lost its egg.  :(  Currently blooming: dandelions, carnations, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, snapdragons, zinnias, firecracker plant, torenia, yarrow, white and red clover, penstemon, daylilies, rose campion, coreopsis, morning glories, aster, spiderwort, echinacea, golden rain tree.  Mulberries and black raspberries are winding down.
