This year's prompt meme is open for sign-ups. Sign-up form is here.

Rules and guidelines:

You must have an AO3 account to participate. You can get an invite code here. The waiting-list is currently short: about 2 days.

For those unfamiliar with AO3 here's the AO3 FAQ dealing with collections and challenges, and here's the specific bit dealing with sign-ups for prompt memes on AO3.

You must specify at least 1 fandom in each of your prompts: you may specify (up to) all three Forest fandoms and 6 characters in each prompt.

You may make up to 6 prompts. They may be as detailed (or not) as you like, but somewhere in the middle hinterland between 'anything at all about anyone at all' and a detailed plot outline for your Ginty/Patrick/Giles crime caper with bonus tentacles tends to get best results. State clearly any non-negotiable Do Not Wants: e.g. underage sexual content.

The default setting is an anonymous prompt: you can de-anonymise your prompt if you wish. Anonymity is not absolute: in a small fandom like this, it is probably a bit compromised from the start.

You may prompt for art or fic. If prompting for art, please use the 'optional tags' section and enter 'fanart'.

Works may be of any length, but must be complete. It's fine to do minor edits (typos, changing a few words or adding a sentence) after posting and before reveals, but please don't post placeholder works.

You may claim as many prompts as you like and feel able to produce work for.

There can and may be multiple claims on the same prompt.

There are no restrictions on content or rating, but obviously, do try to be respectful of your requester's prompt, especially their DNWs. Ratings and Archive Warnings can be helpful, but Choose Not To Warn is sometimes the only possible option too.

Schedule

Nominations: from today, 17th May. The tagset is here.
Promotion: Please feel free to promote the fest in your own journals and on other social media platforms. I'm not on Facebook, so I'd be particularly grateful if someone who is on the Forest community there would promote it.

Sign-up Opens: Fri 27 May 2016, 10:00AM UTC (11:00AM BST)
Sign-up Closes: Sun 26 Jun 2016, 08:00PM UTC (09:00PM BST)
Collection will remain open until 7pm UTC on 9th September for you to post works in response to prompts.
Assignments Due: Fri 02 Sep 2016, 08:00PM UTC (09:00PM BST)
Works Revealed: Sun 04 Sep 2016, 08:00PM UTC (09:00PM BST)
Authors Revealed: Fri 09 Sep 2016, 08:00PM UTC (09:00PM BST)


Any questions, just comment or PM me!

The Forest Fanworks Prompt Meme Challenge was a lot of fun last year, so I thought people might like to have another go. The idea is to have a fairly low-pressure form of commitment, but with a structure that will create bit of a sense of occasion. Signed-up creators can browse the available prompts left by other fans and choose ones they'd like to fulfil, rather than (as in a gift exchange) having a recipient assigned to them. But there will be a sign-up period and a deadline, followed by reveal of the collection.

I've written a short Patrick centred piece set during his recovery from the accident. It can be found at my journal (link below). I think it is the first time I've attempted to write about the Marlows, and was inspired by Josephine Tey's Daughter of Time.

There were a few unclaimed prompts after the AF ficfest. I have been amusing myself having a go at the one about Nicola having to sing for money - I don't know who suggested it but for whoever it was it can be found on my LJ !

3rd May 2016 Edited To Add: Twenty-seven 'chapters' later and this is all but finished; I want to send a big, belated thank you to   [livejournal.com profile] mheloyse for prompting Philip Scott for the fic fest last summer and helping me fill fill many a boring moment over the past nine months or so!
[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
I'm delighted to see that five people have offered/requested Marlows fic for Yuletide. If you've requested it, and written a Dear Yuletide Writer letter, would you perhaps consider linking that letter here and/or commenting on the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide letters masterpost? People may be interested in writing treats to some of your prompts.
[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
Yuletide nominations are now open. I haven't nominated the Marlows this year, but I would certainly be interested in offering/requesting both the modern and the Players books if anyone else would like to do the honours. You can nominate 3 fandoms and 4 characters in each. Please do comment here with the characters you've nominated, so if there are multiple nominators you can avoid character duplication. Nominating does not commit you to participation in Yuletide. You will need an AO3 account to nominate, and nominations close at 9am UTC on 3rd October. You can go direct to the nominations page here.
[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
Yuletide nominations open on 25th September. 2014 was a good Yuletide for Forest fic, and it would be great to see something similar this year. Here's a schedule for Yuletide 2015, and here are the nominations rules. It's the same as last year: you can make 3 fandom nominations and nominate 4 characters for each fandom. That means a bit of co-ordination is probably desirable to get a good spread of characters. Please feel free to discuss co-ordinating Forest-related nominations below. Nominating doesn't commit you to signing up, so if you're still undecided, think you might only want to write treats &c. you can make nominations. You will need an AO3 account to make nominations, however.
[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
The collection is now open for you to go and read! There are 13 stories by 9 writers, which I think is a respectable tally, bringing the total number of Marlows fics on the AO3 to 99. Thanks very much to everyone who participated. Please do leave kudos and comments: it is by such that fic writers live! And if you'd like to, do promote the collection on your own journal or in other places where you think people might be interested. I'd especially appreciate it if someone posted a link on the Antonia Forest Facebook comm, as I don't have a Facebook page these days.

If you want to de-anonymize your prompts, you can do so under 'Edit sign-up' on your AO3 dash. There's absolutely no obligation to de-anonymize if you don't wish to.

Once again, thanks to all the writers, and happy reading!

Your contributions to the Forest fanworks fest are due tomorrow, 1st September, at 8pm UTC (Calculate time differences here.)

The collection will go live on 7th September.
[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
Just a reminder that there's a week to go before fics are due for the Forest fic fest. I've opened sign-ups again in case anyone wants to claim some last-minute prompts.
[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
Just a reminder that Forest Fic Fest stories are due on 1st September 2015 at 8pm UTC. We've a few in the collection already, but there are still lots of prompts to claim. I've opened sign-ups again if anyone fancies claiming and writing one. The collection is here, on AO3. You'll need an AO3 account to participate.
[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
Sign ups for the fic fest close at midnight on Friday 26th June (what time is that for me?), so you've a couple of days to get your sign-up in. Prompts can be claimed later, but you must be signed up by midnight Friday to participate.
[identity profile] learnsslowly.livejournal.com
Apparently it will only appear publicly when stories are posted to it.

Thanks to Heliopause for suggesting I request it.

A reminder that Exchange at Fic Corner is open for sign-ups and the Marlows books and the Players books are both eligible. (You'll need to offer to write in one more fandom at least to participate.) Last year this generated [livejournal.com profile] nnozomi's fine fic 'Rowan in Winter':

Rowan in Winter (7959 words) by nnozomi
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Marlows - Antonia Forest
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Rowan Marlow, Peter Marlow, Nicola Marlow, Karen Marlow, Ann Marlow, Giles Marlow, Edwin Dodd
Summary:


Take absolutely no notice. This isn't really me.


Sign-ups are here and close on June 21st.

*

Rare Pair Fest is also open for sign-ups, and the Marlows (not the Players, in this case) are eligible. You'll need to offer 3 fandoms in total there.

*

There's also, of course the Antonia Forest Fic Fest, which closes for sign-ups on 26th June. Plenty of prompts there to claim.

[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
I've nominated the modern Marlows series for Rare Pair Fest 2015: the tagset is here. If anyone fancies adding to it (or nominating the Players books), nominations are open until June 15th.

I've also made a fairly random nominations slate for Exchange at Fic Corner, a fic exchange for children's and YA fandoms. It might not have been approved yet, so here are mine:

Modern books

Nicola Marlow
Lawrie Marlow
Miranda West
Patrick Merrick
Tim Keith

Players books

Nicholas Marlow
William Shakespeare
Humfrey Danvers
Christopher Marlowe
Richard Burbage

Exchange at Fic Corner generated a little crop of Marlows fic last year, so if you're not too busy writing for the Forest-specific fest, which is here, you might like to have a go. Nominations for Fic Corner are here and run till June 11th.

It's Forest's centenary today, so I'll be raising a glass (Lidl Soave) to the Immortal Memory. Cheers!

In the meantime, the Fic Fest is open for sign-ups and prompts for the next month: go and prompt and fill away. You'll need an AO3 account to participate, but that is easily got here.

The collection will close on the 1st September and be revealed, to general delight and amazement, on the 7th September.

Any questions, ask below.

First time poster here so please accept apologies in advance if this is breaking any rules. Below the cut you'll find my first ever piece of fan fiction, a short 600-word "deleted scene", if you like, from the end of chapter 9 of Peter's Room, when Nicola has realised that Patrick and Ginty are Gondalling without her. Feedback most welcome.

Fic Fest

[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
A reminder that character nominations are still open for the fic fest. Sign-ups begin on Tuesday 26th May. You'll need an AO3 account to participate, but the waiting list is now very short, so you can just go ahead and apply, and you should have one in a day or so.

Remix Redux

May. 6th, 2015 10:49 am
[identity profile] lilliburlero.livejournal.com
Sign-ups for Remix Redux, a fic exchange challenge in which you remodel other people's fic, are now open, and for the first time there's no restriction on fandom size. There are a few rules and restrictions about writers' eligibility (you need to have written 5 non-crossover stories of 500 words or more, or 7 of 100 words or more, to make a request for your fic to be remixed) but quite a few writers here might be eligible and interested. I'm going to have a shot, anyway.

Queries are probably best addressed to the LJ comm for the challenge [livejournal.com profile] remixers_lounge: I'm a noob to this one too and can't answer with any authority.
[identity profile] nnozomi.livejournal.com
I have had great fun rounding up various fic prompts from the readthrough posts, which I include below (assuming I can remember how to do an LJ cut) for your amusement/use in upcoming prompt meme. Which seems not before time, judging from the sheer volume of these things, my goodness.

(Edit: I expect it goes without saying, but prompting for lilliburlero's prompt meme is obviously not limited to these! Possible misunderstandings occurring to me in the dark of night... . )

One or two caveats:
--I haven't included the historicals, because the readthrough isn't complete, the comments are comparatively sparse, and I haven't read them myself and don't have a feel for them...
--I have copy-pasted promiscuously from posts and comments alike, so if you want to copyright your own words or feel that something has been taken out of context, etc., please comment to that effect and I will edit accordingly.

Here we go:Be warned, there are plenty! )
