meredavey: (royed 1)

We’ve had an amazing turnout so far, and are super excited to see what everyone has planned, but we have also had some questions regarding the “Wave” formats, so we’re hoping to clarify.

The event is broken up into three waves.  Artists and writers can choose to sign up for one or two waves, but not all three (pinch hitters excepted).

Wave One: Signups close CLOSED

Creators

—Authors write a 20k fanfiction piece.
—Artists create one complete piece of artwork and two additional sketches, all with the same theme.

***All works from the two following waves will be based off works from this first wave.

Wave Two: Signups close August 6 (this has been changed!)

Claimers

—1 claimer per first wave piece until ALL pieces have been claimed.
—For writers claiming art: Fanfiction must be at least 15k.
—For artists claiming fanfiction: Art must be 1 complete piece

Wave Three: Signups close August 28

Claimers

—1 claimer per category per first wave piece until ALL pieces have been claimed
—For writers claiming art: Fanfiction must be at least 5 or 10k, depending on the category claimed.
—For artists claiming fanfiction: art must be a sketch or lineart, depending on the category claimed.

—All wave one pieces must be fully claimed before we open more claiming slots.

All the above content requirements (word count and art complexity) are only the minimums—individuals are absolutely welcome to go above and beyond!

Also, even if you are unable to participate, we would appreciate a signal boost!  We’re going strong with signups, but we’d like to reach everyone in the fandom that we can!

About

First of all: What is a Fandom Challenge?

At its most basic, the fandom challenge is such:

A first wave of artists and writers, known as Original Posters or “OPs,” create a longer or more detailed work.  After some time passes, a second wave of artists and writers sign up to claim these pieces and collaborate with the OP to draw or write something based on the piece they claim.  After the second wave of claims, a third wave for shorter or less detailed works opens for those who are unable or don’t wish to create bigger pieces.  In addition, there is also a category for those who wish to create graphics, gifsets, fanmixes, or fanvids for OP works.

The OP and both waves of creators will then post all of their works on tumblr (or a similar service like Livejournal)  together on a predetermined date!

(This may sound a bit like a Big Bang, and there are similarities, though we have no affiliation; this has been in the works for some time before it was announced and we’ve tweaked our dates around to avoid too much overlap with the deadlines of that event.  The more the merrier, we say!  This event was partially inspired by some of the old fandom run challenges over on LJ.)

How it Works


  1. There will be two categories of participants: “OPs,” first wave creators who create a fanwork on their own, and “Claimers,” second- and third-wave creators who claim a work and create something for it.

  2. OP fics must be at least 20k words.  OP artists should create one “complete” piece of art (we know this differs for everyone–some people work better in black and white, some people do backgrounds, etc.; just use your best judgement) and two additional sketches.

  3. This is, of course, the minimum: fics can go over, and artists can create as many works of as much detail as they would like, if they feel so inspired!

  4. Both artists and writers can be OPs.  However, you can only sign up for one thing as an OP and one thing as a Claimer.  However, you can only choose one “wave” to claim (pinch hitting doesn’t count).

  5. When signing up to be both an OP and a Claimer, you don’t have to have separate mediums (you can post and claim art twice, for example, but if you want to do one of each, that’s fine too).

  6. Claimers will be allowed to claim works once we have confirmed OP participation and progress.

  7. Initially, only one claimer (15k for writers, complete piece for artists) will be allowed per OP work, and then that OP work will be closed for claims until every OP work has been claimed.

  8. Once they have all been claimed, we will reopen OP works for small claims (5k and 10k for writers, sketches and lineart for artists) with a maximum of three claimers.

  9. Pinch Hitters of both kinds will be brought in in the event that we have unclaimed OP slots left over.  Completely unclaimed works will take priority over works with only one or two open slots.

  10. Fanvids, fanmixes, edits, graphics, and gifsets will open with second wave claims.  We will initially open one slot per OP work, though this may change based on volume of signups.

  11. Anyone may also sign up to be either a beta reader or a pinch hitter; you don’t need to be participating in any other capacity to do so!  Beta readers provide their services to fic writers, reviewing for spelling and grammar, and pinch hitters are brought in near the end of the event to fill in unclaimed slots.

  12. As this isn’t something we’ve run before, we may adjust certain policies after evaluating signup volume, and we will let everyone know immediately if we choose to do so.  (For example, if we have a huge amount of claimers, we may increase available slots.)


Rules

These are the rules we expect you to abide by during this event.


  1. Any hate or harassment whatsoever is unacceptable and will result in a block and removal from the event.  This includes messaging participants with negativity or posting nastiness in public tags.  Note that all ships will be accepted and tagged, and if you’re not sure you’ll be able to handle working with a creator who might ship something you don’t, even if their work isn’t focused on that ship, this event is not for you.

  2. Works must focus on canon FMA characters, whatever universe they’re in (alternate universes are fine).

  3. Creators will be required to note if their OP works will have explicit content or any other common trigger warnings (gore, noncon, dubcon, underage sexual relationships, etc.) as well as list ships in the summary, including background or implied: do not mark a work as gen if it has romance involved.  Claimers, please communicate with your OPs and avoid creating anything with which they are uncomfortable.

  4. Anyone under 18 will not be permitted to claim works with explicit content.  We will not be releasing ages, but you will be required to provide yours in order to sign up.

  5. We will have a “no explicit works” note for those creators who are uncomfortable receiving them.

  6. You are not required to have your work beta read, but we highly encourage it.  We will be releasing a name of beta reader volunteers, and feel free to message any of them for help!

  7. We will make every effort to ensure that no one is claimed by someone who makes them uncomfortable; if you know in advance that someone is participating who you do not wish to work with, you may contact us and let us know.  We will keep this in the strictest confidence.

  8. Additionally, if OP and second- or third-wave creator have any sort of irreconcilable differences or decide that your creative visions differ a bit too much (it happens!  There’s no shame in it), please privately contact us and we will make every effort to accommodate you.

  9. We will do our best to accommodate you in not just that, but anything you may need, whether that’s an extension, clarification, or anything else.  The only thing we ask is that you communicate with us!  We do our best to be readily available and I promise, we don’t bite.

Calendar

The timeline that we will be following for this event!

Note that these may change if needed; we will try to keep the general times the same, but circumstances may end up getting in the way.

Additionally, we are flexible.  We understand that real life happens and that time zones exist.  If you miss a date but really do want to sign up, just let us know.  We might very well be able to let you squeak in.

May 15th: signups close for OPs

Anyone who wants to participate by posting a 20k fic or a completed art piece + two sketches must have applications submitted by today.  No need to wait until then to start writing, of course!

July 23-29: rough drafts + summaries due

We will be reaching out to all OPs via email for summaries and a wip of your work to show that it’s being worked on (this can be sketches, part of a fic, a detailed outline, etc.).  If we do not hear back by the 27th, we will reach out on tumblr.  If we receive no response, we will assume that you are no longer participating.

July 30: Summary pos

We will be posting a masterlist of all OP works.  Second wave signups will close shortly after this (giving a chance for those who are still uncertain about participating to see the summaries).

August 6: Second Wave signups close, claims begin

All 15k authors/completed art piece artists may begin claiming.  Claims must be submitted via ask or email and must include your top three choices.

All who are doing edits, fanmixes, gifs, fanvids, etc. may also begin claiming.

August 28th: Third wave signups close, claims begin

All 5/10k authors and lineart/sketch artists may begin claiming.  Claims must be submitted via ask or email and must include your top three choices.

In the event that we have openings for more participants, we may reopen signups at some point!

September 25th: Check-ins

We will be asking for confirmation from everyone that their work is in progress and will be ready by the 30th

October 2nd: Pinch hitters

We will be reaching out to pinch hitters in the event that any are needed

October 30: Posting Begins

Go wild!

Upon a Kiss

Title: Upon a Kiss
Author: [livejournal.com profile] meredavey
Word Count: 2,605
Rating: R
Characters: Roy Mustang/Edward Elric
Prompt: 3 Roy/Ed (Any): It was just a kiss…until it wasn’t
Warnings: Mentions of sex.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] fma_slashfest. I feel better about this prompt. I used italics to describe what is happening in the “present” and regular font for what happened in the past (where most of the event took place). It has a kiss turning into something more with some angst thrown in for good measure. Stir in a pinch of mushy romance and there you go!
Summary: It had started out as a simple (but extremely pleasant kiss). Now it was something…different, stronger. And Ed found he didn’t dislike it.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] meredavey
Word Count: 2,873
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Roy/Ed
Prompt: 1 Roy/Ed (Any): Taking sparring to the next level.
Warnings: a bit of angst and a bit off-topicness in the middle
Notes: For the [livejournal.com profile] fma_slashfest.  I've edited and re-edited this piece and I'm simply not happy with it still. I use the old saying "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" as the focus of this piece as verbal sparring or verbal jokes on different levels can be just as cruel as physical attacks. I thought Ed would probably have some feelings about this, especially when he was younger. Kids are cruel and I bet Ed has some hangups about his automail. Hence where I started this idea. (so in other words I took the prompt kind of abstractly)
Summary: Ed wants to prove the old saying "sticks and stones may break my bones" wrong, but unfortunately Roy has saddled him with a job that requires all of his attention and Ed really doesn't want to finish it.

Summary: Rumors are stirring just like Ed's boredom, and the world begins to change. "You shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."
Notes: Hey, this is the final chapter of Ripples, so thanks for tagging along! This chapter is a huge deal because this is going to set up the final part of the trilogy. When that's going to be started, I don't know. So, thanks! I always find ending things so much harder than beginning them. I was especially torn with this one. I waffled over letting Tamin live, but in the end, as all things are in the FMA realm, it had to be equivalent exchange.

(so it's ending in a few weeks) But, hopefully this chapter explains some more things and gives you a hint of what's to come. This takes place over the course of a few months. I highly doubted you wanted to see Edward dancing through fields of gold.

Also, see if you find something you remember from early on! :D

To Be Great (or to Fall in Love) )

~Welcome~

meredavey: (bambi t home 3)
Welcome to my Fic Journal. I'm Mere ([livejournal.com profile] meredavey) and all my personal stuff will now be found over there! This is my archives, fic that has been completed (and some incomplete fic too). This is where all fic goes when I write it. Eilian Moon is actually my website for original fiction and other storage purposes. It is still under construction.

This fic contains much, much slash (yaoi, shonen-ai, boyxboy, gay love). A lot of it is NC-17 and R. While it isn't locked, I do ask that you remember your age and read appropriately. I'd hate to have to lock this journal. While I mainly write slash, I also have written a few het stories as well. Those are all oneshots and are listed under the masterlist as such.

Eilian Moon is part Welsh - eilian means a moment/second in time. The moon is in reference to the phases of the moon. So it total, the name of this archive is "a moon's moment in time" or the "moon's phases in a moment of time". Why did I pick this? I'm part Welsh - my ancestors are at least - and I wanted something unique. But like the phases of the moon, things change, each moment is different. There is always something new.

This fic journal is not to be reproduced without prior permission. I am also on AO3 and Ff.net.

Lots of Love,

Mere


Oh, right! The links!
