Remix 2007: banners

I said I would make banners, and my banner mojo is kind of failing me so these might be sort of meh, but I figured I'd put them off for long enough.

Shiny, maybe? )

Remix 2007: END

Congratulations everyone! *hugs and drinks!? all round* Every single player got a remix in (and I say 'psssh' to your "halves", everything is wonderful)! A lot of these are really interesting, especially those that elaborate upon or play around with ficlet-length fics. From R-rated to het, Plastic Tree to Johnny's to K-pop — we've got it covered here *attempts a winning grin* right under the cut. So please do check them out and maybe even comment! It's nerve-wrecking, playing with someone else's creation.

Thank you to all the players ♥

last_pleasure Remix 2007: end. )

If anyone with more design talent than me would like to make banners, badges, or other mix graphics please do and I'll pretty-up this entry! (As it goes I thought I'd spare you my attempts — they were very bad.)

Final Extension

Remix deadline extended to the 9th. Comment with your remix on the previous post. There will not be any further extensions (and I'm afraid I'm not around today to field questions) so good luck!

Remix Compilation


As usual, please comment on this entry with the details of and links to your remix fic.

Also comment with extension requests (preferably before the 5th!) and any general comments on how it is or is not going. This is also your reminder that the deadline is December 5th. I will probably accept late entries.

Here are the people I am hoping to hear from(, other than myself, who I hear from rather too often for my liking):
[livejournal.com profile] velvetgunfire — thank you!
[livejournal.com profile] narcomanic — thank you!
[livejournal.com profile] loftec — thank you!
[livejournal.com profile] hakuen — thank you!
[livejournal.com profile] mayo_polyphony — thank you!
[livejournal.com profile] traumerei__x — thank you!
[livejournal.com profile] mimei — thank you!
...and possibly anyone who joined but didn't comment here.

ETA. I'll probably compile on the 11th (my time). There's still time, people! O:

ETA2. Thanks everyone! That's them all! Will compile later today.

Attention, Attention (may I have all your eyes and ears...)

Hey Army! And hi to any new members.

o1. I'll be taking over the remix. How's everyone going with it? Would you like me to screen submissions and then stagger the posting of remixes over December? Remember the deadline is December 5th. Comment, comment, コメントをして!!

o2. it's a little late for a Christmas one, so how about some kind of New Years challenge? Vote below. Suggestions please! I'm keen to see those who haven't participated before getting involved.

and o3. ADMIN instead of having thirty-three mods, who would prefer it if we cut it down to those who are actually active in administrating this community (not just posting challenges). Posting access is a separate thing and could still just as easily be awarded (we could have one post for requesting posting access). It just seems tidier to me (i.e. I do a lot of admin here, but my ficjournal really doesn't need to be a mod). AFAIC, maintainers ONLY need be people who actively administrate the comm and need the permissions to do so and (to my knowledge) there are only about 4-5 of us who do. But I can be a right neat freak, so if this is a terrible idea please vote so. Thanks.

[Poll #1096966]

ETA. Please comment if you wish to remain a maintainer.

Round 4 (long overdue) end-summary post

*squints at date*

...yeah. I apologize; for y'all that aren't on my flist and didn't know what happened, at the time the round ended, my grandmother was in hospital, and died a week later. Between one thing and another, I just never got this posted until now. But it does need to be posted!~ the fics submitted deserve the love.

Prompt no. 1 was the only one entered... ;_; I dunno, guys, I might have to just reuse the others sometime. I like them.


The prompt:
May is the Merry Month of Masturbation. Please to be bringing the smut.

The fics:
AU Fic, Challenge #1 by [livejournal.com profile] screaming_003
And she certainly brought the smut. Oh my did she. xDDD

Would you like a mermaid with that crack? )

Needless to say, at least two of the current round's prompts are intriguing. Maybe I'll actually be able to write something.
Entry tags:

(no subject)

Okay, so I kind of volunteered to do challenges, but since this is first time.... hopefully I don't repeat anything from the past ^_^;

This round will go from July 23 - August 7.

PROMPTS

1) Harry Potter: Yup, you knew it was coming! (hears groans from jaded people who talked to one too many Harry Potter fans). To celebrate the coming of the last book and my revenge for one of the worst endings ever, the theme tonight's Harry Potter. Write anything pertaining to Harry Potter - crossovers, AU's, parodies (especially parodies :D).... Anything you can think up of. Not much more to it. Just something to do with Harry Potter.

2) Urban Fairy-tale: These things are, from all the literature I've ever read on this subject, either quite tricky to make or the wrong people are writing this stuff -____-. Incorporate elves, fairies, or other otherworldly creatures into the otherwise mundane everyday life. HINT: Don't make it into LOTR in Suburbia of Chicago, unless you think you're up to it. Please.

3) Themed:  flowers [blame Oscar Wilde and his obsession with them in Dorian Gray]
     a) Poppy + remembrance
    b) Rose + desert
    c) Lilac + hometown
    d) Lilies + college/university

4) Crack!Pairings: So I've heard of Gackt/Kirito, or Gackt/Miyavi, or even Seo Taiji/Miyavi.... But have you ever heard of Isshi/Hyde??? Basically, make up the most cracked out pairing, and write a fanfic on it. The key, is though, to make it BELIEVABLE. Well, somewhat believable. We'll leave the "somewhat" part open to interpretation ^_~.

5) Guess the Characters: Obviously in order to actually guess them, you have to know most of your j-pop people. But it's fun to guess. Don't give the people in your fic names, but try to make the characters as recognizable as possible. Obviously, most people in the show biz are way open to interpretation, as most of the fics you find anywhere tell you, so many people would have different guesses based on what they like, were exposed to, hate, etc etc. But seriously, don't worry if people will guess who the people in your fic are or not. Or maybe you should *shrugs*

6) Standardized Testing: Simple as that. J-poppers/rockers take any standardized test you can think of.

Yeah, um, somehow I feel one of these was used once before, but that's okay. Hopefully, you'll actually understand my convulated attempts to explain these prompts and have fun with these. Happy writing!

EDIT: Since the pacific coast at least is now on Tuesday, date has been moved to August 7th

End of round 5;

Yes, yes, I'm laaaate. -_- Anyhow...

Entries for this round:

"The Sensation of Falling" for 4.(a) by [livejournal.com profile] chantrea_johari.
"Murder Most Foul" for 1. by [livejournal.com profile] loftec.

Late entries are also accepted, but you can't request! ;_; And so... [livejournal.com profile] chantrea_johari, I'll try and get your request ready in time. ^^


Anyone up for the next round's challenges?
Entry tags:

CHALLENGES; Round 5

Let's get back on track, shall we? This round will run from June 11th to the 25th.
Hopefully the prompts didn't turn out too vague... <.<



CHALLENGES


1. Crime is abound! Think of shady crime novels with their secret inspectors and whatnot; or the criminal minds and illegal gangs of the reverse side. Hell, it can be of pickpockets and shoplifters if you want to. You can write a completely AU story or slip a few offences into real life.

2. Once upon a time... Jrock goes fairy tale. I've seen a few fics with more or less dealing with this theme but I guess it wouldn't hurt anyone to have a few more of them. Like with theme 1. I'm giving you freedom to decipher this how you want. Rewrite a fairy tale with Jrockers or twist a bit of magic into everyday life, whatever suits your fancy.

3. Transgressive. Blame this on me reading Exquisite Corpse all weekend. Stretch your moral, the law, the boundaries of good taste, if you will. However you view transgressive to be. I understand this can get kind of.... too graphic for all to stomach so proper warnings in your fics are appreciated!

4. Themed; colour + something else.

a. red + city view
b. blue + playing
c. gold + feast
d. purple + illness


So, there's time until June 25th, and as it's a tradition, everyone who turns their stuff in in time can request from me.. <.< with their own discretion.

(Disscussion - I hope -) RE: Access

Ok, I was writing an entry explaining my position on this and asking for opinions when I decided my position would stunt any actual discussion, and that working from the primary materials in a public post to [livejournal.com profile] last_pleasure would probably elicit more interesting responses, so:

These are direct quotes from public posts in fanfiction communities I follow, over the last 48 hours or so.

i.
IMPORTANT: You have to join the comm in order to view anything rated NC-17.*

* bolding removed.

ii.
This story is posted as a locked entry to the [name excluded] comm. You need to be eighteen to join, so after clicking to join, stop by this* post and leave an age statement.

* hyperlink removed.

i. concerns a personal fiction community where posting access is held by one individual, ii. is controlled by two mods who will (correct me if i'm wrong) award posting access so long as you swear by your age, and who, in their userinfo/mission statement, cite discomfort at "unrestricted reading list[s]."

And now consider this a general call for your thoughts/feelings/personal opinions.

Edit interestingly, the age-declaration entry re: ii. is a public post with unscreened comments, asking the individual to state "Yes, I'm old enough to vote!"

Challenges ~ Round 4

May 13 through May 28 since it's already the 14th for many.

I'll take any kind of fic. Asian music RPF, other fanfic if that's what's got hold of your brain right now, original. (Anyone who pulled out some Kakashi/Iruka might be especially beloved in my sight.) But you know the Jrock etc. is our lifeblood, yo.


CHALLENGES.

1. May is the Merry Month of Masturbation. Please to be bringing the smut.
This may be entirely alone, with a partner (imagined or otherwise), with any number of people in the vicinity but ignorant/lending a hand elsewhere/watching/jerking off together, and any other actions along the way that appeal, as long as somewhere in there, there's someone getting themself off. (And this could degenerate into discussion of how all of getting off is done by the self anyway, but I'm looking for the more basic physical sort here, unless you have some great idea.)

2. Pick a member of a band, or a solo artist, and write at least a hundred words of a same-world AU where they aren't in the band due to choice or changed circumstance/didn't make it. The band may have made it (with someone else? how does this change their sound/chemistry?) and they may still know the band (or a member, whatever); up to you. This need not be angst at all! although I'm sure Mimei would appreciate it.

3. Drunkfic. Join in on the party post of d00m, if you like, or post it here/separately. Your options are:
  • Get drunk and write whatever comes to mind, or
  • Write something with drinking/drunk characters
  • Or both.
  • No drugs plz (for this challenge round's purposes only). I'll get too jealous since I can't.
4. Themed.
  1. vanilla + headache
  2. roof + crystal
  3. bottle + light
  4. drive + plastic
  5. sand + bitterness
5. Write a self-insert and/or Mary Sue fic.
  • Option A: Fic in which you are a character, whether major or minor or just part of the crowd. You may fictionalize your job, location, etc. within reason (this may take the form of placing it in the future/past *shrugs*). We do write RPF, after all... I like to pretend I'm a real person, how about you?
  • Option B: Mary Sue you or a stock Mary Sue runs into/meets ____. No holds barred here, but keep in mind that humor and/or evilness are probably what will determine success. (Well, now I'm seeing something with the sad confessions of a real-life Mary Sue, but... you get the idea.)
  • The options may be combined at your discretion, though I'd prefer not in the same character.


Go to it, guys~! Comment with a link or with the fic itself if it's short enough, and if you do so by the end of May 28th anywhere in the world, you get a free prize. =O It will be very shiny and awesome, too.

Also, if you'd like to take the next round, holla!

Thank you for participating in this Round. I know a lot of people have finals and stuff lately. Actually mine are coming up in what I'm guessing is the U.S. break? (May/June) So I'm not going to be chasing things up~ (I need to work on this procrastination thing...and there are some important origific things I have to get done). Again: I won't be accepting any late entries for Round Zero. (However, all three previous rounds will, so you could post them to those entries. Loopholes ftw :P)

Even if you can't participate in a round, it's nice to still follow the round (i.e. track the entry comments) and read & comment on submitted fics, like most members did last year (I know that I read like mad, whether I'm up to writing or not, and comments from the RSA core are utter love).

[livejournal.com profile] yokozuki will be posting the next round soon.

Round Zero Reminder

This is just a reminder that the current challenge round ('Round Zero') ends on the 29th (your time). Because this is an amnesty round, I will not be accepting late submissions. More information about this round can be found here and here.

CHALLENGES | Round Zero 2007 | 15 April through 29 April

for the record/in case you missed the announcement



ROUND 4 2007 is an amnesty (sort of) on the previous rounds.

This means:

1. You can chose any previous challenge prompt (from 2007).

2. Because there are no new prompts, this round is officially 'Round 0'.

3. Complete a challenge and comment on this entry. Or this one, I'm not at all fussed.

4. The round runs from 15 April through 29 April

5. [livejournal.com profile] yokozuki heads up! You're tagged for the round following this.

Please, don't hesitate to comment in you have any questions or...comments. You are not required to participate in the rounds...but it'd be nice if you did. Following this will be the 'wanted' post discussed earlier. いいですか? Hope you're all well & happy ♥

Round 2 End(ed)

Latelatelate, gomen nasai!

-anti-clockwise, by mimei, for "dream sequence."
-Journey & Colorbook, by sugarless_666, for "drabble."
-untitled, by velvetgunfire, for "theme & variations" / "dream sequence."
-The concept of being alone, by narcomanic, for "dream sequence."
-Heimat, by mimei, for "drabble."

I owe you all comments, and requestfic, if anyone wants. (profile) Thanks for participating!

(G)ROUND ZERO, YO.

Hay comm. ♥ First off, I love you guys. You're so cuddly and friendly and great.
HOWEVER, challenge rounds? Not going so great. I mean, dude, two/three you've been subjected to my challenges because no one's stepped up to the tag and seriously? One round a year from me is surely enough :D Round Two hasn't been rounded up (Z~~~???) but here's how Round Three went:

[livejournal.com profile] mayo_polyphony, Yozakura for 2(a)
[livejournal.com profile] mimei, Sentiment Machine for 1.
edit
Me & D did a marathon on the timed challenges. It was class.
[livejournal.com profile] yokozuki, J/Inoran thingy for 5(a)(b)(c).
[livejournal.com profile] mimei, but do you?/give yourself away in an envelope/to the world for 5(a)(c).
end edit

Okay so lol, notice how one of those is actually me? Well, I found it pretty amusing. *lols to self in the closet*

Now, it's just that time of year...Winter's coming on, business year just rounded up, big rush of assignments before- oh wait, I'm being a little self-centered there *hums* but yeah, there's University/College aps, Easter, lots of stuff happening everywhere. This is cool. And challenge rounds aren't compulsory or nothin'.

BUT, it seems a bit stupid to keep putting up new rounds unless you are not liking the challenges (speak up, plz). Personally I think the challenges are totally fly. So for this round (which I have not set a closing date for yet), you can do any challenge from the previous three rounds.

Round One
Round Two
Round Three

Unless of course, [livejournal.com profile] yokozuki, you want to post a new round?

And dudes, remember this is the partycommunistawesome comm of d00m. Discussion is encouraged. And if anyone would like to drunkfic or generally fic with me, that'd be slickster cool because I'm bored and need people to force me to write. So maybe it'd be cool to have a sorta "wanted" post (f'locked) where we can post our contact details and the type of fic we like to fic at...or, well, yknow, yknow?

In other words: yo, wassup?
Don't be shy. We're all nice people here!
