Torchwood fic for counterfeitcoin: "Fairy-Tale Ending" [20 May 2007|06:50pm]

astrogirl2
Well, apathocles said we could post 'em if we got 'em, so here's mine. (Also crossposted to my LJ.)

Title: Fairy-Tale Ending
Author: astrogirl2
Fandom: Torchwood.
Word Count: About 775.
Rating/Warning: Rated R-ish for generally disturbing and icky content. Unlike my previous zombie stories, this really ain't a comedy. Also, this is an AU story, but it contains spoilers for Torchwood's "End of Days."
Author's notes: This was written for counterfeitcoin, who said, "Zombie porn is totally a plus but not a requirement." It isn't quite zombie porn, but it's probably as close as you're ever going to get from me. I apologize in advance for, um, everything.

Huh. Never did make an official you-can-start-posting-your-stories-now post, did I? Consider this to be said post. Stories are due by next weekend. Woot.

[ mood | sheepish ]

Okay, I am keeping this weekend as the official start of the posting time for stories, but I'm kind of stretching out the posting window until, um, next weekend. So, we'll have a week or so in which to post our stories.

This is as much for my benefit as for anyone else's. *koff*

yay now is panic time [16 May 2007|06:33am]

apathocles
So, the deadline is almost here, and I'm wondering whether we'll need to whack a few extra days onto the end. (Because the thought of having something run by me actually wind up on time is kind of foreign.)

If there's anyone here who feels they'll need a little extra time, this is the place to mention it. Comments are screened.

Sorry about the delay! Assignments have been sent out; if you have any problems, either comment here, or e-mail me at apathocles [at] gmail [dot] com.

I've set the deadline at the weekend covering the 19th and 20th of May; hopefully, that'll be plenty of time for everyone, and we'll see how things are going closer to the deadline, with adjustments made if necessary.

If you have any other pieces of zombie flotsam you feel like posting here in the meantime, feel more than free. (I'm thinking bad zombie Paint drawings or haiku over Easter, myself.)

Have fun!

Technically, sign-ups end about a day from now, although whether I actually get around to officially closing them tomorrow is another matter. However, the assignments all work out nicely, so they'll be going out pretty much as soon as sign-ups close (provided there isn't a late sign-up that throws a spanner in the works). I'll have a definite deadline worked out by then; early-to-mid May is sounding most likely.

If you wish to make any changes to your sign-up, now is the time to do so!

We've had several sign-ups already, and it looks like people are making requests/offers in enough overlapping fandoms that we shouldn't have any problems. Yay! Fandoms requested/offered thus far are listed here.

If you wish to change any of your requests/offers, drop me a comment.

And welcome to the new folks around here!

This here would be the sign-up post for Resurrection Shuffle, 2007.

Sign-ups are open until around about the end of Thursday the 8th of March, just-east-of-the-International-Date-line time. No, it's not long for a sign-up period, but I'm running hideously late, and it's not like there are going to be an enormous amount of people signing up.

apathocles
[ mood | sleepy ]

It's that time of year again... and then some. Sorry for the delay in kicking off sign-ups; RL's been hectic.

Given how late this is starting, the deadline will once again most likely be pretty relaxed, although people will be encouraged to get their stories in at Easter if possible. And it's only a 500-word minimum, and I don't want this to be a high-stress ficathon, so feel free to keep it short, if the timeframe's stressing you out.

The sign-up post will go up shortly.

A more-or-less exact re-post of the FAQs from last year, because I am lazy:

Vacation in Hell (Farscape, for kazbaby, with apologies) [19 May 2006|02:17pm]

counterfeitcoin
[ mood | accomplished ]

Title: Vacation in Hell
Fandom: Farscape
Pairings: I never thought I would do this. Crichton/D’Argo/Scorpius
Rating: Adult, in 1,092 words or less. But not less, because it’s exactly that.
Summary: It isn’t like a George Romero movie.
Disclaimer: Come on, do I look like I own this shit? The answer is no. The song I’m quoting below is from this great horror movie band. Everyone should check them out.
Notes: Thanks to apathocles for the beta. Written for kazbaby, for the dialzforzombies ficathon. I’m really sorry this is so late. It was a real bitch to wrap my head around, but thanks for the challenge. Sorry there isn’t more apocalyptic city action. I sincerely hope you enjoy it. AU, set sometime in the series, anytime.
Warnings: So I have this friend, Kez, who tells me that zombies give her nightmares. I don’t want Kez to read this. And you might have a hard time liking this if zombie porn squicks you, because, while I’m a fade-to-black kind of writer, I wouldn’t want to read this if I couldn’t dig zombie porn.

Always on my Mind (DCU, for swear_jar) [04 May 2006|02:05am]

apathocles
[ mood | tired ]

Gah. This is for swear_jar, and I have no excuse for the lateness.

Title: Always on my Mind
Fandom: DCU (requested: Boostle and Batclan)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Crack, bad taste, yada. Extremely injokey -- if you're not familiar with both the source texts and the fandom, this will make no sense whatsoever. If you are... it still won't make much sense.
Spoilers: Disturbingly enough, this manages to contain spoilers for stuff that's, hmm, about a month or so old? However, this doesn't exactly follow current continuity (besides the obvious, I mean), so don't expect it to fit in.

Summary: Death! Intrigue! Extremely dodgy pseudoscience!

Farscape for astrogirl2: Zombie's On A God Trip [26 Apr 2006|11:29pm]

kazbaby
Author's Note: Written for astrogirl2 who left her request so wide open I thought I'd have an aneurysm. This is actually the fifth incarnation of this story and if you want the grisly details, I have something written up in my notebook. Thanks should go to kernezelda and thehallway for putting up with my grammar and betaing this. Much, much thanks to both of you. Also thanks should go lizamanynames for giving advice on the first draft of this a couple weeks ago and scorpy808 for the title help. *vbg*

This story is so much different than what I started out or even intended to write. All feedback is welcome folks.
Timeline: Early Season 3
Rating: PG/PG-13...ish.
Warnings: It's a freaking zombie story. That's all the warning you're gonna get. ;)
Disclaimer: Not mine. Belongs to Henson, yada yada yada.

Death After Life: M*A*S*H fic for kixxa. [24 Apr 2006|10:33pm]

swear_jar
Hope you like it some.

Title: Death After Life.
Author: Jess.
Rating: PG.
Fandom: M*A*S*H.
Notes: This is set around season three of M*A*S*H, so this fic has Trapper in it. Character death warning, too (though, that’s a condition of this fic-a-thon, so, probably I don’t need to mention it, huh?). Beta by the very best mod of this community (ha, ha) apathocles (thank you, thank you, thank you). All badness and left over mistakes are mine.

Doctor Who Fic for innle: "Nine and a Half" [23 Apr 2006|09:20am]

astrogirl2
OK, apathocles said to go ahead and post since I was finished, so here's my zombie story! I was writing for innle, who requested, well, a whole bunch of fandoms, the only one of which I can write is New Who, so that's what we've got. As requested this contains no zombie porn (and believe me, that was not a difficult request to adhere to). I didn't manage to work in the cricket bat, though, sorry, innle! This is probably pretty PG-ish, actually. It's about 2,500 words. And it's an AU branching from "The Parting of the Ways," so it contains spoilers for stuff up to that point, and probably doesn't make as much sense if you haven't seen the episode. Many, many thanks to my betas jhall1 and eve11, and to apathocles for running the ficathon!

[ mood | anticipatory ]

Feel free to start posting your stories!

That said, a number of people have said that they'll struggle to finish on time. As such, I'm giving a general extension until mid-week; if you haven't got your fic in by then (with the exception of the person writing for me, because she has good reason), I'll find a pinch-hitter to cover your assignment.

I haven't finished mine yet, either, so don't stress too much. *g*

poll thingy [09 Apr 2006|11:33pm]

apathocles
[ mood | exhausted ]

I know some of us (including myself) could use a little extra time for our stories, so I'm putting out a call for opinions on the subject. I'd really prefer it if the new deadline were no more than a week past the old one, because I have several ficathon stories due in May, and it's all about me.

If you want the deadline to remain the same, that's also cool. If you don't comment here, I'll assume that you're fine with the deadline as it stands. Comments will be screened.

apathocles
[ mood | stressed ]

Hi everyone,

Thanks for signing up, and sorry about the delay in getting assignments out. Unfortunately, I've been having trouble matching people up -- I can almost give everyone an assignment they can write, but not quite.

As such, I am asking if any of you are able to write (or request) any fandoms other than those you've already listed. The relevant fandoms are listed in the sign-up post; if there are any more there you can write, or any you'd like to add to your requests (on top of those you already have), I would greatly appreciate it if you'd let me know. Comments will be screened.

Given how long I've been taking working out the sign-ups, there is a strong possibility that I'll push the story deadline back a little, depending on how people are going. I'll ask around a little closer to the due date, and see if people need extra time.

Thanks again for your patience!
