Hello Gallifreyathoners,

Your fics/arts/podfics are due in THIS SATURDAY, SUNDAY, MONDAY.

That's still plenty of time, though. I've finally updated the list of available betas, although I assume many of them will be working on their own stuff this week, they may well be happy to help if you need a beta (I'm around, probably, and could help.)

The real point of this post is:

I need to know - do we know who is on the High Council in series 1 and 2? I've talked to [livejournal.com profile] bagheera_san and asked the TARDIS Index file (which confusingly says that the High Council is tonnes of guys like a parliament, but I think we're working with a number around five). Narvin: yes. Brax: no. Darkel? Valyes? The TARDIS index file says no to Valyes, but yes to someone called Delox.

Any more for any more?

Thanks!

This may seem a bizarre reminder time, but I am (ironically) worried I will forget if I don't do it now. Perhaps I should have done it yesterday when it would have made more sense. Anyway!

Gallifreyathoners:

You have 11-13 days to write/art/podfic!


Posting begins on the 25th and ends on the 27th. Post whenever you like within that time frame.

OK - everyone should now have an email containing their prompts. A bit later than I'd hoped, but there we are.

If you don't have an email (or a PM) please let me know. If you do have an email, please reply to it and let me know you've got it - otherwise I will panic and bug you FOREVER.

If you've been sent an email full of prompts that you really don't want to do, let me know, but hopefully I've selected something that you'd be interested in writing/drawing/podficcing.

Also - quite a few people said 'I will write anything except hard core sex/beastiality/incest/etc!!!'

GUYZ- nobody asked for that. All is OK.

Final Day

As I'm sure you all know by now - sign-ups for [livejournal.com profile] morepolitics close today (or whenever I wake up tomorrow morning).

Assignments should be sent out by email tomorrow afternoon. I'll post to the community once this is done.

I didn't consider this when I was writing the rules, but if it is quite acceptable to request podfic of a story that you didn't write (as long as the story you choose is Gallifrey fic) - which should open up that category a bit more.

Should you wish to take advantage of this option, please ask the author for permission before you nominate their fic. Thanks!

Sign-ups for [livejournal.com profile] morepolitics, the BFA Gallifrey-athon close THIS FRIDAY. So, get your applications in now (or some time this week) for more Gallifreyan funtimes!

Signups for the Gallifrey ficathon 2012 are OPEN.

You'll find the sign-up form below. Submit your form, with the types of fic or art or podfic you want to create and receive, by Friday the 20th of January. After that, all the forms will be shuffled and you'll receive three prompts for fic or art or at least one for podfic from which to choose your project.

How to sign up:

1: READ THE RULES. If you have any questions, the answer's probably in the rules. If it isn't, leave a comment.

2: FILL OUT THE FORM. There are separate forms for art and fic and podfic, all of which can be copypasted from the text box below. You can request art, fic, podfic, or any of the above, and sign up to produce fic, art, podfic, or any of the above. You can make three fic prompt requests and/or three art prompts and/or some podfic prompts, but will only have to answer one (even if you agree to produce any of the genres). There are prompt guidelines in the rules.

3: SUBMIT THE FORM in a comment to this post. All comments will be screened, to protect your privacy and keep you all in suspense.

4: Your prompts should arrive by 23rd January (if not sooner).

Since Yuletide sign-ups are happening now/soon, and since it was kind of Yuletide that inspired this ficathon in the first place I thought I'd make an official announcement that -

It is my intention to run [livejournal.com profile] morepolitics again, early in 2012. Hurrah! (Even if it's only me and [livejournal.com profile] neveralarch, who has already expressed interest, writing stuff for each other - that's fine, but hopefully other people are still interested. Are you interested?) Sign-ups should be in January, posting towards the end of February, so start thinking of prompts and clear a space in your diaries :)

I know there are lots of other places to discuss it, but if you feel like you want a place for thoughts on Gallifrey series 4 to be collected, they could go here.

THIS IS A NON SPOILER FREE ZONE i.e. you can post all the spoilers you like. I must just remember not to click on them until I've heard the last two... :D

As you may remember from this post, we're putting all the un-used [livejournal.com profile] morepolitics fic and art prompts up for general inspiration and claiming. Anyone can play at this point and you can do whatever you like with your pomrpts- if you write something as a result of any of these prompts it'd be nice if you linked it to this post or the masterlist, but you don't need to. Please also feel free to write new prompts in the comments (although potentially there could be another round of this next year - if there was enough interest - so bear that in mind).

GET YOUR GALLIFREY PROMPTS HERE )

[livejournal.com profile] reajeasa has made what I think to be a good suggestion. It is this: Once everything has been submitted, how about releasing all the prompts that didn't get used? Just to leave them available for general consumption, where anyone can see them and leave a comment if they fill one. Like a non-anon (whee rhyming) meme? I'm sure it'd only lead to good things!

I propose posting everyone's un-used prompts to the community on the 8th - which should give [livejournal.com profile] atraphoenix time to post her fic (hurrah). I know which prompt [livejournal.com profile] x_los is writing for [livejournal.com profile] neveralarch, and which prompt [livejournal.com profile] bagheera_san is writing for [livejournal.com profile] x_los so those won't be included either.

Are we cool with this? Vote here!

[Poll #1712543]

The poll results are private, and the prompts will be posted name-free. I guess people could also add additional prompts if they felt so inclined. All would be allowed to contribute - people who signed up already/people who didn't sign up/the person who wrote that prompt initially. The more Gallifrey fic/art the better.

P.S. Where are my series 4 CDs? No word from Nick Briggs on this...

Hurrah! And congratulations everyone. The first-deadline-masterlist is now complete! I'll update it as later pieces come in. If you are handing in your stuff late, could you please make a post on this comm so everyone knows that there's something new to read/look at? Everyone else - keep watching the comm, because clearly more stuff is coming.

I've given links to everything made so far to [livejournal.com profile] who_daily, so it should appear on today's edition. I've hardly seen any cross-posting, but do feel free to cross-post as much as you like - or not if you don't want to. I'm going to post links to the masterlist on various comms after this, so hopefully the flood gates will soon be open.

Extra special thank you to our wonderful pinch-hitters, [livejournal.com profile] neveralarch, [livejournal.com profile] pride1289 and (in advance) [livejournal.com profile] bagheera_san, but also thank you everyone, because before this -athon there was relatively little Gallifrey fic and art, and now there is quite a lot and that makes me about as happy as Narvin with a mind-probe :)

Hello all. Just want to remind you that Gallifreyathon fic/art posting officially starts tomorrow and continues until Monday the 28th.

I'll post a master list here tomorrow and all you need to do is post your stuff in your journal and send me a link, which I will then add to the big post.

I imagine many people will be aiming for Monday, but you can post as early as you want once the master post is live. If you don't think you're going to make the deadline, don't, as the guide says, panic. Just let me know so your prompter isn't sitting around sad and Gallifrey-less. I'm a very benevolent mod, and basically just want your stuff at some point, sooner being more preferable than later, but eventually more preferable than not at all.

Very much looking forward to seeing what everyone's done :)

Hello Gallifreyathoners. You have ABOUT A WEEK of writing/arting time remaining. Is everyone (who hasn't explicitly spoken to me already) feeling good about the 26th->28th deadline?
ext_23799: (brax is made of win)
[identity profile] aralias.livejournal.com
If you didn't get a prompt email, I probably screwed something up, so let me know. If you sense psychically that I didn't assign you to anyone, again let me know, but I think I managed it, and only had to send one OH WAIT NO I FAIL email. I've tried to give people prompts they like (there was a spreadsheet), so I hope you find something that intrigues and delights you.

You can start as soon as you like. Fic/art is due 26th-28th.

If you can, please keep your assignment as secret as Brax would keep it. That's pretty secret.

Sign-ups are now closed. Prompts should go out in the next 3 hours after I've eaten this bowl of cereal and considered how to tackle the day...

Hello all. Last day of sign-ups. If you've been watching the community and wondering whether you should or not - now is the time. Choose your destiny.

To everyone else who has already signed up, I said prompts would be out by Sunday, but I think I'll probably be able to assign everyone their prompts on Saturday because a) I'm not doing anything except trying not to spend money and b) there's quite a manageable number of (high quality) submissions. Looking forward the Gallifrey times ahead.

Sign-ups!
