Hey, how come nobody said anything when I said we'd be posting the fics on Wednesday the 31st? And I thought I was being such a good mod! Well, we're still waiting on one but just about everything else is ready, so it's possible we'll have them up tomorrow (the 31st), or we might end up waiting until Wednesday after all. Thanks for your patience and for the wonderful fics, everybody.

Fics went up this week at [livejournal.com profile] gateverse_remix, a remix challenge for Stargate: SG-1 and SGA. It was the fourth remix [livejournal.com profile] cupidsbow had done and she wrote some great meta in her journal about how she finally managed to find a process she likes for making the story her own. There are also links there to the discussions she hosted after the last two rounds of [livejournal.com profile] remix_redux. Probably a little late in the day for most of us, but maybe some of you are still near the beginning stages, and anyway it's an interesting read: How to write a remix according to cupidsbow.

Since one of your friendly mods and several other challenge participants will be mooting on July 28th (the date we'd set for posting the fics), we've decided to push the dates back a bit, which will give most of you a few more days to finish writing. Here are the new dates:

Stories are due on Friday, July 27th. It's probably best if you send them to [livejournal.com profile] danachan since I will be traveling and won't have as much time online from the 25th to the 29th. A Microsoft Word file attachment (with formatting ready for LJ posting) would be nice but other formats are okay too.

If you don't think you can finish your story in time, please let us know as soon as possible so we can make sure your recipient still gets a story.

Dana and I will post the stories anonymously, here at [livejournal.com profile] a_conspiracy, on Wednesday, July 31st [ETA: That would be August 1st /ETA] or as soon as we've received all twelve stories. You can keep track of the comments on your story by clicking on the pushpin image at the top of the LJ post.

Authors' names will be revealed on Sunday, August 5th. After that you can answer your feedback and repost them at your journal, website, or wherever else you'd like.

Do the remixes need to have funky remix subtitles?
No, but they can if you want. Read more... )

Should I get my fic betaed?
Yes, please, but do you best to keep things supersekrit. I'm happy to beta for anyone in the challenge (though again, I won't really be available after the 24th). If you would like to volunteer as a beta, please comment on this post with your e-mail address and any limitations or preferences we should know about (dates when you won't be available, areas of expertise, way you'd prefer to receive fics, etc.). That way authors can e-mail you directly rather than post details about their own fics.

Please comment or e-mail me (sophinisba at gmail dot com) or Dana (songofvarda at gmail dot com) if you have other questions, doubts, complaints, or concerns. Congratulations to those of you who have finished already. Best of luck to those who, like me, still have a lot of writing left to do. :)

I sent out assignment e-mails earlier tonight. If you didn't get yours, please comment here to let me know. Good luck, everyone!

Last night was the deadline for sign-ups, but we haven't matched people up yet so if you sign up now we'll find a place for you. :)

Dana and I will e-mail you with your assignments sometime in the next few days.

If you've been meaning to update your website, fic journal, or fic index, this might be a good time to do that so it'll be easy for your remixer to find all your fics.

Thanks, everyone! We are very excited about this challenge!

Some of this you have seen before, but most of it is new. What this means is that the sign ups are now open!

what is a remix? what are the basic rules? )

what are the deadlines? what is the timeline? )

how do we play? )

who'll post the stories? )

so, I think I won't be able to finish my story; what should I do? )

if you can pinch hit, then this is what that means )

anything else?

If you have any other questions, either email me, or comment on this post.

in closing

Hobbits are great. This means more hobbit fanfic, and that is always a very good thing to have.

rules

what is a remix? what are the basic rules?

Have you ever read a story and found yourself thinking, hey, I could have done that, too, but I would have done it like this..., and then found yourself thinking about it, but never actually writing it out? That is what this ficathon is all about – taking some other person's story, and then rework it in your own image.

This covers many things – the basic style, from tense to pov, as well as dialogue, mood, and characterization. If you think something is too short, then you can make it longer: if you think the original went on further than it should have, then you can redo it and end it at another point.

Of course, there are things you can't change: pairing, or characters, and the basic plotline.

This is a ficathon for hobbit-centric fiction, including gen, slash, het, and femslash, and may include interspecies pairings and characters of other races as long as one of the main characters is a hobbit. In order to sign up, you need to have written at least three pieces of hobbit-centric fiction, of at least 500 words.

The fic you write for the challenge should also be at least 500 words.

what are the deadlines? what is the timeline?

Signs ups will start on May 1 and go through May 14.

More information will be posted on that May 1.

anything else?
