The Aurors is happening!
No, not the TV show; the fic thing I mentioned before. If you were interested in participating — and btw, we’ve scheduled it so as not to land entirely atop Yuletide — details are inside the cut.
starlady38 and I decided to run this as a prompt meme, rather than a gift exchange, because it’s more flexible for all involved. What does that mean? Well, a gift exchange requires one-to-one matching, where we make sure everybody gets assigned a recipient, and a different writer is assigned to them, and then we have to worry about people defaulting. A prompt meme is more like communal brainstorming: your signup consists of prompts for potential stories, and then people “claim” those prompts (i.e. write fills for them). You can sign up without writing stories; you can write stories without signing up; you can write multiple stories if you want to, and multiple stories can be written to the same prompt. The end result is fic for everybody.
(One thing will be like a gift exchange, though: the stories won’t be revealed until they’re all in, and they’ll be anonymous at first; the authors will be revealed later.)
We’re running this on the AO3, so you do need an account to participate. However, if you don’t have one, give us the e-mail address you want it attached to, and we’ll send you an invite.
The page for the collection is here (with further details if you need them), and the signup form is in the left sidebar. You can also see other prompts that have been submitted, and click “Claim” for the one(s) you might like to write. Signups will remain open for a week, closing at 8 p.m. EST on December 8th; you can claim things at any time, but the deadline for the actual stories is 8 p.m. on January 8th (i.e. after the Yuletide rush). Authors will be revealed a week later.
Any questions, just let me know! And feel free to link this (or the collection page, which is probably more useful) anywhere you think people might be interested.
