Round 11: Poll

Since there was zero interest in the "Fallen Ladies" prompt/poll - let's try this round again and start from the very basics. I'm also interested in knowing if there's anything you'd like to see come from the comm in the future - a theme, a fandom, an event - whatever is in your noodle that you'd like to see happen, I'm always open to new ideas to shake things up!

(Revised) Round 11 Schedule:
Thursday, July 14th: Theme Poll Opens
Monday, July 18th: Round Poll Opens
Wednesday, July 20th: Sign ups Open
Monday, July 25th: Assignments Mailed
Sunday, August 21st: Assignments Due
Monday, August 22nd: Free-For-All Opens

Poll #2049710 Round 11: theme

I plan to participate in Round 11 ...


I will (probably) participate in this Round and I would like to write about

Dead WLW
The Strong Warrior
Found Families
(Literal) Pack Dynamics
Children's Literature
Historical Figures

For the theme I picked, I would like to nominate these (3-5) characters/fandoms


[Round 11: Our Fallen Ladies] Poll

In honor of a particularly bad year of television, I'm proposing a gen round focused on women who love women. Even in fandom, there's a lot of emphasis on lesbians being defined by their relationship or sexuality. I know that there is a lot of shippyness in fandom anyway - and smut - but it would be particularly nice if these characters could be celebrated in a gen-fashion.

The most important rule this month will be: I am alive. Let's celebrate the lives and hobbies and personalities and friendships of these fantastic ladies.

Here is the schedule for Round Eleven:
Polls Open: Tuesday, July 5th
Sign-Ups Open: Friday, July 8th
Sign-Ups Close: Monday, July 11th
Assignments Mailed: Monday, July 11th
Stories Due: Wednesday, July 27th
Free for all: Thursday, July 28th --- Sunday, July 31st

Here let's have a Poll to Begin

have a poll!Collapse )

Yes, that list only goes back to 2010. Yes, I realize that means that many of fandom's faves (Tara, Zena, Marissa, etc.) are not included on that list. PLEASE NOMINATE THEM. It's a small comm - chances are if two of you really want to write about *insert lady here*, I can make that happen.

Making this post curled up in my armchair watching once more with feeling and wishing there was a way to reach inside my body and pull out my reproductive organs. PM me if you need anything and consider the free-for-all open to anyone and everyone. XOXO

Assignments Sent!

I gave sign-ups a couple of extra days to see if anyone else would wander in, but have decided to cut it. If you forgot or were just too nervous to do an official prompt/exchange - don't forget that there's always the Free For All week at the end of the month and for this round, any fandom in the original poll.

If you did sign up, you should now have your assignments in your inbox. Please contact me (genficmini.mods/gmail) if you have any questions/concerns or are going to be late or default for any reason.

Hello hi hi good morning what's up how are you how's it going good to see you!!!

Welcome to Round 11: Scenerygasm

Ostensibly this month we will be focusing on descriptions and making sure that the setting is important to the story in some way.

[mod post] apology

Hey guys.

Things that are the worst: mostly just me.

I'm terrible.

Well, I'm dealing with a ton of RL stuff and this comm completely slipped my mind. I haven't been online in weeks bc my new schedule is such a mess. If you've peeked at my tumblr: that's a queue and also my Instagram, which I only update so that extended family doesn't start calling me or thinking I'm dead.


By next month, everything should be much more manageable for me and we'll do another round.

However, I want to take this opportunity to do a bit of an overhaul/rethinking of what this comm does and how it functions.

This comm has changed greatly in terms of participants since we began and as such, I want to touch base with those of you still interested in contributing - esp in terms of what you want.

I've been considering abandoning the "three fandoms per round" option because I find that it is scaring authors away? In which case, I'm not sure the best way to proceed.

Please, please, please if you have any suggestions or things that you want from this comm that you haven't been getting, let me know in the comments to this post. If you like the three fandoms option, if you preferred the nominations option, if you don't want the theme, if you want to vote on the theme, etc - please tell me everything. If you have a list of complaints as long as your arm, write it all down and leave it here. If you like how things are going please tell me.

I'm not doing a poll for this because partly I'm worried that I'm not asking the right questions.

Please bear with this momentary bout of self-doubt.

And again, I apologize for my absence.

And a special note: little happyg_rl has lost her internet. And apparently her router. It's a ridiculous little bit of drama and she's quite frustrated. RL has not been kind to the Bell sisters and I'm passing on her apology as both the family representative and your friendly neighborhood mod.

Round 9. Tea and Lost Letters: Lily to Marlene

I'm posting now with the permission of the mod XD

fic: Tea and Lost Letters: Lily to Marlene
fandom: Harry Potter
rating: gen
characters: Lily Evans (And Marlene McKinnon)
word count: 2.511
recipient: happyg_rl who asked "tea, rambling letters, snide remarks" + historical theme
a/n: I really hope you like this! I tried to do my best with the rambling and the snide remarks (LOL, I had to search for the translation because I didn't know the meaning of snide) James Potter is mentioned, just to keep this thing "historically accurate" and such and to make fun of his name. Also other people, important for Lily's story, are mentioned.

These are the letters Lily Evans sent to her bestfriend Marlene McKinnon from 1971 to 1981.

I cried

Tea and Lost LettersCollapse )

wrt this community

I'm still interested in participating!
I missed it during the hiatus!
I forgot about it?
I'm over it, but it was fun while it lasted
I think if it came back, I'd want things to change (explanation in comments)

if there //was// a January round, I'd want it to be...

a special Harry Potter round
a special write-in nomination round (like the old days)
a regular poll-round
a prompt-only round where the author chooses the fandom

if there //was// a January round, the likelihood of me participating is...

about 90%
about 50%
about 10%
I'll probably wait for February
I'm no longer interested in this community

During the hiatus I...

read something pretty cool - I'll share it in the comments!
wrote something awesome - I'll tell you about it in the comments!
took a much-needed break and was actually a little relieved that the comm was on hold during the holidays
missed this comm!

november hiatus

I'm so sorry to do this, guys - but I just can't feasibly mod an exchange this month. So! Go forth and be good little nano humans or whatever, take a break if you need to. You are wonderful and beautiful little fairy creatures and I adore you. I'm so sorry, see you in December!

[sign ups] Round 8: High School is Hell

edited 10/8: signups will be open until the end of the day on the 10th to see if more authors are willing to come play this round

Welcome to Round 8!
Thanks to everyone who voted for the fandoms this month.

The (optional) theme for this month is:
Ritual Inversion
In ritual inversion, the rules of society are reversed or ignored. (source)

Rather than just a simple 'Halloween' theme, I though it would be more interesting to stretch the box a little bit. You can interpret this however you want - a character acting in a way different than their norm (ala Willow in "Dopplegangland"); the rules of the universe being switched around for one day/month/year because ~magick (or whatever); the actual writing of your story altering halfway through; be creative!

Since 2/3 of the fandoms for this month are ones that pop up here on a regular basis, I strongly encourage you to take this month and stretch your wings as you write, push yourself! try something new! hop out of your own box!

It is up to writer this month to come up with their own interpretation of the theme, which means that it is up to you to push yourself and push the prompts into new, maybe unforeseen, directions! Which means that the theme is NOT part of the request-signup. Any inversions that authors do will be up to their discretion during their writing process.

I know you all can do this!

The available fandoms for this round are:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Vampire Diaries
Sabrina, the Teenage Witch

round 8 live!

Here is the schedule for round eight:

Polls Open: Thursday, October 1ST
Sign-Ups Open: Monday, October 5TH
Assignments Mailed: Thursday, October 11TH
Stories Due: Tuesday, October 27TH

And now for the rules:

+ Let us know if you can only write for one fandom in your sign-up.
+ No slashing, no canon-pairings, no popular fandom-pairings. No exceptions.
+ There is no upper limit, but you have to write at least 500 words.
+ You have twenty days to finish your story.
+ If for some reason you cannot write your story, or it's gonna be late, let us know as soon as you can.

+ For this round: crossovers for ONE prompt are okay! but you must include a second prompt in only one fandom as well


mod note: Kelsey has a monstrous cold and so may not be as quick with the answering of questions this month as usual, please just be patient with me. And pray to whatever spirit, goddess, or forest nymph you ascribe to that this blows over quickly!
