It's the MOST WONDERFUL TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME OF THE YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAR...

ANNOUNCING THE SIXTH ANNUAL [livejournal.com profile] thisengland HISTORIES FICATHON AND LOVEFEST

Can you believe we've been at this for six years? Because I can't.

This year there are a couple of special issues to take into account:

The first is that this is the first ficathon that's started since The Hollow Crown aired in the UK. It doesn't change anything about the ficathon rules, really, other than that we hope it will increase interest in histories fic.

The second, which is more substantial, is that we're going to start hosting the fics on the Archive of Our Own this year! Signups will still be done as in the past -- we thought about doing them on AO3 but I couldn't make heads or tails of the setup even with a tutorial, and this is still a small enough ficathon that it should be manageable -- but when it comes time to post your fics, you can do it yourself. This should make everyone's lives a little bit easier. All administrative business will take place here, and links to ficathon fics will still be posted to this community, so we're not going anywhere!

Administrative things, how to sign up, rules, &c. PLEASE NOTE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES FOR 2013. )

To sign up:

Email all of this info to me at strangebrooch AT gmail DOT com, AND [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire at lareinenoire AT gmail DOT com, by MONDAY JUNE 10. Don't forget to include your handle if it's not clear from your email and/or I don't know who you are. The final deadline for fics is tentatively set at THURSDAY AUGUST 15. (This is negotiable if it's a bad time for participants.) Once everyone's assignments are in, we will post all unwritten prompts at [livejournal.com profile] thisengland for anyone to write fic of any length (even if you weren't originally part of the exchange) and open the collection to all comers -- much like Yuletide Madness, in other words. All fics will then be made available onSATURDAY AUGUST 17. Authors will be revealed on SATURDAY AUGUST 24.
