1. This ficathon is for rare pairings and gen (yes, slash is allowed). In simple terms, no Jordan/Woody. Also, no Bug/Nigel.

Not that I have anything against Jordan/Woody...except that I do, but this ficathon is about the RARE pairings, and everywhere you turn you can find Jordan/Woody fic. As for Bug/Nigel, it's totally THE fanon slash pair.

2. Good spelling, grammar, capitalization and punctuation are compulsory. This is not negotiable. Use a beta. If you can't find one, comment to the community with a request.

3. The fic you write should be at least 1000 words in length.

4. Please don't post your fic anywhere until you post it here, after November, 30.

5. Feel free to comment or e-mail with any questions or suggestions.



September 17: Sign-ups begin.
September 30: Sign-ups end.
November 30: Stories may be posted.
December 10: Final deadline for stories.

No extensions will be given, without a valid reason.


If you would like to participate, comment to this post with:

1. your lj name
2. a number from 1 to 50.

When you leave a comment, I'll reply with a quote which will come from various sources. Your quote doesn't have to be part of the fic, it can be your inspiration, put at the beginning, read by a character, I don't care. It's only there to give you ideas. Take it however you want.

Once a number has been selected, it can't be selected again.

17. If, with the literate, I am
Impelled to try an epigram,
I never seek to take the credit;
We all assume that Oscar said it.

2.The fish trap exists because of the fish. Once you've gotten the fish you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit. Once you've gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words exist because of meaning. Once you've gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can talk with him?

7. Age is opportunity no less,
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away,
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.

18th-Sep-2005 02:24 am (UTC) - I want in!
Right, well, this Snarky the Smut Nazi (blame GE for that nickname. ;) Goddessofsnark and Snarky were taken, so I used this one.)

Anyway, I want in! I've always been lucky number 13, so I call dibs on that one.

And does it matter if we usually write one ship that's not Woody/Jordan or Bug/Nigel. *coff G/J coff*? Or should we expand our horizons a bit?

And I know you mentioned Gen, but can it be slash? I've had a slashy idea running through my head since GE and I talked about it earlier that could pan out into a nice little full fledged fic that has perhaps the MOST unconventional slash pairing you will ever see...
18th-Sep-2005 02:27 am (UTC) - Re: I want in!
It REALLY doesn't matter what the hell you write, as long as it's not one of those pairings. Slash, Gen, Het, Death, Drama, Fluff...whatever.

13. One of the most obvious results of having a baby around the house is to turn two good people into complete idiots who probably wouldn't have been much worse than mere imbeciles without it. ~Georges Courteline

28. Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Nah, I'm not gonna say no to a pairing, and then post it in that pairing's comm. Not looking to get my ass kicked ;)

16. I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here
We must have died along, a long long time ago

32. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

Hey,I debated whether or not to join this the entire day and the debate ended in favour of joining. So I went ahead and created an account just so I could do so. I'm joining mostly because it's a sure way to get me to write a fic down. I'd like to be number 9 and my username's NadezhdaSt obviously. :) However, English is a second language for me (I'm Bulgarian)and I don't have a beta. Which basically means I do need one for I'm afraid I may make some mistakes unintentionally due to the fact that English is after all not my mother tongue.

Nope, but then again, you can basically ignore whatever you got.

Just a question:

Can we post more than one fic? Or do we need another number for that?
21st-Sep-2005 06:00 pm (UTC)
Y'know, I was actually thinking about that?

Yes, you can post more than one, but you need another number for each one.

Are crossovers okay? Not crossover pairing, but I desperately want to have a few Witchblade characters drop in on our heroes. :)
30th-Nov-2005 11:39 am (UTC) - No day but today...
Hi there!!

Today is the day, but I'm not able to post my story :-(
I guess I have no posting access... Right??
9th-Dec-2005 05:38 pm (UTC)
I'll hop on the unable to post bandwagon as well.
