kerravonsen: I signed up to write WHAT? (ficathon-signup)
[personal profile] kerravonsen
So, the results of this poll are such that I will probably be running the Multi-Fandom Lyric Wheel in June-July.

I will be using the AO3 ficathon engine for it, so anyone who wishes to participate will need to join that site: (http://archiveofourown.org/). I have an invite going spare, and I could probably get more if need be. Please let me know if you need one. There needs to be a minimum of ten people signing up to make this ficathon viable.

I have also revised the FAQ: please give feedback!

With all this messing around with the facilities at AO3, I have a hankering to use their setup to run the Multi-Fandom Lyric Wheel again, next year.
I'm intending for the Finish-a-thon to run mid-March to the end of May, and I also want to participate in the tthdrabbles Birthday Fest in February-March, and if that's the case, there's only a few different slots available to run a Lyric Wheel in, so I thought I'd ask y'all what you would prefer.

Yes, now I officially declare the 2007 Multi-Fandom Lyric Wheel archive to be open!

Stories by universe
Stories by recipient

Despite forgettings, timezone differences and computer troubles, here we are. Now go forth, read, and comment!
You may have noticed I've made separate posts here for each story, so each story can have its own set of comments by folks.
(no, I'm not going to link to all those posts here, they're linked to from the stories themselves.)

Okay folks, I have all the stories now... but I can't open the archive yet because my mother's just arrived and she's staying for lunch (and I'm not sure for how long after that) so RL triumphs again.

My intent is to post a post-for-comments here for every single story (there are twelve) so that comments for a story get their own post (unlike last time, where there was one post for all comments and we got thread-collapse), so it will take a little while for it all to be done.

One more story, I am waiting for just one more story to arrive before the Multi-Fandom Lyric Wheel archive can be declared open.

Not yet

The archive for the Multi-Fandom Lyric Wheel isn't yet open because I'm still waiting for two stories.

Well, since

seem to have been lost at sea, I am calling for pinch-hitters to write lyric wheel stories very fast. Pipe up if you can write:
- Stargate (SG-1 or Atlantis)
- Buffy (or Angel)
- Firefly
- New Who

ETA: I have three volunteers, yay! Thanks y'all.

Don't forget! Stories are due on Friday.

It's okay if you post your stories to me early, a few people already have.
And if you don't think you will be finished in time, let me know NOW, so I can ask pinch-hitters to pinch-hit.

The Multi-Fandom Lyric Wheel assignments have gone out, barring one person whose email bounced.
One person was very difficult to make assignments for, because their "read" list was smaller than their "write" list, so I basically added their "write" list to their read list. (shrug). I am assuming that if one is willing to write in a fandom, one is willing to read stories in that fandom.

Apart from that, everyone has at least one fandom in common with their assignee, and most people have two. Note that the people who put down "Doctor Who, only 9th and 10th Doctors" were just listed as "Doctor Who" because I was not going to get that fine-grained. I did try splitting all "Doctor Who" listings into "Old Who" and "New Who", but that biased the matches towards those who listed Doctor Who, so I reverted back to treating all Doctor Who as the same.

Go forth! Write!

Welcome to the Multi-Fandom Lyric Wheel. This is a story-challenge where each participant writes a story from the criteria given by another participant -- but in this case, what you get given are song lyrics.

I did say that I'd run another Lyric Wheel in January-February, so I'd better do that; expect the proper announcement very soon. A few things to note and/or comment on:

- this is going to overlap with the RemixRedux ficathon. Sorry, can't help it, it's earlier this year than I thought.
- because Remix is increasing its word-count to 1000, I thought I'd decrease our word-count to 500. Is that okay with everyone?
- I'm hoping to start the sign-ups this week, the assignments next week, the due date 6 or 8 weeks from that. I'm inclined to make it 6 weeks, so that there's less overlap with Remix. After all 500 words in 6 weeks should be okay, even if you have another ficathon running, right?

(Edited to Add:) I'm also intending that people list fandoms they're interested in, so that I can do non-random matching this time. The idea is that participants will list fandoms they can write and fandoms they're interested in, and I will use that to try to match requests with writers. However, since I don't expect that many participants, it probably won't be possible to have perfect matches, so I also don't intend for writers to be compelled to write in the given fandoms, but it would be nice for them to try.
