Fics went up this week at [ profile] gateverse_remix, a remix challenge for Stargate: SG-1 and SGA. It was the fourth remix [ 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 [ 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.

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

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.
