Round One Redux: Fest Format - Official Sign Up!
lettered wrote in 19thc_exchange
Due to lack of participants, I'm cancelling the first round of exchanges. Instead, I'm going to try to host a fest. Everyone can write any fanfic they want, as long as it is based on a canon set in the 19th c.

1) This is the sign up post. Sign-ups will last from now until the end of April. To sign up, all you have to do is comment with your name, the fandom you *think* you will be writing for, and whatever you want to say about what your story is about. If you decide to change fandom or write a different story, that's a-ok. If you don't know what you want to write yet, that's okay too. Putting down your name just means you're making the commitment to finish a fic.

2) Modernizations are okay, as long as they are based on canon set in the 19th c.
Any length of fanfic is okay, though I encourage over 500 words.
If you're unsure whether the fandom you're writing for qualifies, just ask.

3) Fics are due August 1. Extensions will be granted, and if you have to drop out, you'll still be able to participate in the next round. I do want there to actually be some fics as a result of this, so let's try to hit the deadline, but if you can't--well, you can't!

4) A call for prompts will be posted directly after this. There, you can post any ideas you have for a fanfic, or anything you would like to see. There will be no prompt "claiming"--anyone can write anything from the lists of prompts, or use whatever ideas are in the prompts to make their own prompt. You do not have to choose something from the prompts post in order to sign up for the fest; you can write anything you want, as long as it's based on a canon set in the 19th c.

The prompts post is merely to get the juices flowing. People can continue to add prompts even after sign-ups are over.

Here is the format for the sign up. Everything but your name is optional. Commenting with your name means you'll at least try to have something written by August 1.

aww. i'm terribly sorry. i do really want to participate, but i'm so busy at the moment that i hardly have time to check in on anything. sorry -_-*

Name/LJ: miss_morland
Fandom I'm going to write for Do Sarah Waters's Victorian novels qualify? (They're set in the 19th century, albeit written in the 20th/21st...)

Yep! They certainly qualify. The canon you're using just has to be set in the 19th c, that's all! Glad you signed up!

Name/LJ: choco701
Fandom I'm going to write for: Austen, most probably Emma or Mansfield Park. Might write something for Gaskell's North and South.
Idea for the story I'm going to write: I have lots of ideas for Emma fics at the moment; don't know which one I'll end up writing for this though - probably one that is finished only a little before the deadline. Otherwise I won't be able to resist posting it elsewhere, review-whore that I am ;).

Hi tkp!

Just a question - the due date is August 1, right? What do we have to do with the fic once it's written? Send it to you, or post it straight away somewhere here?

Sorry to bother you, but I've just never participated in one of these before, and actually only joined LJ to do so in your one, and don't really have a 'journal' of my own - so I am pretty clueless about how it all works.

Choco :)
