Just a reminder that you have a month to sign up and prompt in the Forest fanworks challenge. Probably because of the move over here to DW, we've had a lot fewer sign-ups this year: it would be lovely to see some more participants.

Information about the Forest Fanworks Challenge is here.

*

I've signed up for Remix Revival, so my Marlows fic is available to be remixed as part of that exchange. If you'd like to participate, there's information here.

*

I'm also going to nominate some of the rarer characters and relationships in the fandom for Fandom Growth, an exchange for ultra-rare fandoms, characters and relationships. If you're interested, there's more information here.

Well, I have just written my first fanfic. I have posted it in AO3 but don't know if it is available immediately or not. It's a bit of a work in progress -I shall edit and add to it in due course but wanted to get something posted rather than delay any longer as I have been meaning to write this for some time and have finally managed it. I've never done anything like this before so hope I haven't made too many mistakes!

Returning for a third year!

The idea of the prompt meme is to have a fairly low-pressure form of commitment to create Forest-based fanworks, 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.

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 3-4 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.

Prompting

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.

Here are the prompts for previous years: feel free to repeat unfilled ones (or even filled ones that you'd like to see a different take on) or use them for inspiration:

Prompts 2015

Prompts 2016

Filling Prompts

Works may be of any length, but must be complete and finished.

Please include all the characters/relationships prompted for, unless the requester has stated that they're happy with works about just one or two of the prompted characters/relationships.

You may claim as many prompts as you like and can reasonably commit to.

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:

There's no nominations period this year; I think the tagset is fairly comprehensive, except for works based on The Thursday Kidnapping (of which we haven't had any yet.) If you want to request a character who doesn't appear to be in the tagset, comment below, and I'll add them. Once characters have been added to the tagset, you'll be able to request them.

Signups open: from now, Wed 31st May. Sign up here, by clicking on the 'Prompt Form' link on the left sidebar.
Signups close: Sun 20th Aug 2017 08:00PM BST
Assignments Due: Fri 08th Sep 2017 08:00PM BST
Works Revealed: Sun 10th Sep 2017 08:00PM BST
Authors Revealed: Sun 17th Sep 2017 08:00PM BST

Any questions, just comment below or PM me.

Enjoy prompting and creating!

One of the unused prompts for the summer fic exchange was about the Marlows having children. I haven't written that prompt exactly but I have written a few scenes about Nicola and her children, including a new, longer one posted today. All on my LJ.

Nominations for Yuletide, the annual small fandoms exchange (What's that?) open on 9th September. Here's a schedule for Yuletide 2016, and here are the eligibility rules. The Marlows books (the Players books count as a separate fandom in AO3 terms) are all eminently eligible, and there's been some great Yuletide fic in years past.

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 or at the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide nominations post here. 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.

Owing to the doziness of your mod (mea culpa) the box to keep works in this year's prompt meme collection 'unrevealed' was left unchecked, meaning that one industrious contributor's story has already appeared. Sorry! I suggest that we leave things as they are, so that the stories will appear as they are posted, meaning (with luck) a gradual drip feed of Forest fic over the course of the summer, rather than a big feast at the end. I did, however, manage to keep the collection anonymous, so we will have a reveal of authors on the 9th September, as planned. The collection will close on the same day, so you have until then to pick up prompts and write. Do leave kudos and comment on the stories as they appear -- authors should be able to reply to comments and stay anonymous: comments by the author will be listed as from 'Anonymous Creator' (I hope.)

My apologies again! I hope nobody is too disappointed, and that you'll still enjoy writing and reading.

Meanwhile, here's the first story in the collection:

Kingscote School Speech Day 2016 (1110 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Marlows - Antonia Forest
Rating: General Audiences

Sign ups continuing for the fanworks fest until June 26th: we've seven participants and 29 prompts so far. Drop along and see if there's anything you'd like to claim. The collection is now open for posting, too.

Fanfic.
