All stories should be live and accounted for! If for any reason you do not see a fic that should be here (either you wrote one or the one for you is MIA), please let me know ASAP.
Also, I believe I have given everyone posting access again, but if you delete and repost and it goes back into the queue, I will approve it tomorrow.
Thanks to everyone for everything. I really appreciate it. Special thanks to my pinch hitters! You all rock!
Title: Public Display
Recipient: Cousin Shelley
Fandoms: Iron Man / The Incredible Hulk
Author's note: This story is a variation from the story idea suggested in the prompt. ( Public DisplayCollapse )
Title: it's hard to be a saint in the city
Fandoms: Iron Man 2/Daredevil
Characters: Pepper Potts, Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson, Tony Stark. Background Pepper/Tony and Matt/Natasha.
Prompt: (Post-Iron Man 2) Tony needs a lawyer who specialises in superheroics, what with all the shit he's constantly getting himself into. Pepper calls upon Nelson and Murdock, Attorneys at Law.
A/N: This didn't turn out quite how I expected it would. I hope you like it anyway? Title from Bruce Springsteen. Also, Matt Murdock's secret identity is still mostly secret; that is, Matt is a lying liar who lies. Much thanks to resolute
for the fabulous betas; all remaining mistakes are mine.( it's hard to be a saint in the cityCollapse )
Rating: Probably a very soft R
Warnings: Mild language, adult situations
A/N: This is set before the first X-Men and before the first Spiderman, assuming that those times mesh up. Scott is a bit younger than in the films, and mutants are a given in the world of Spiderman. It's also set early enough that Erik is still at the school. I don't know if Scott and Jean would have been old enough to teach there at that time, but hey, let's pretend. Thanks to patih
for reading and making suggestions!Specific Request: Norman Osborn/Scott Summers (slash or gen), Jean Grey. Scott comes to Norman for some funding help. They discover more in common than they ever expected to, friendship (or more) comes out of it. I'd prefer this set pre-Spiderman movie but that's not essential. I'm completely open to threesome dynamics with Jean as well, or dealing with her in a good way if it goes to slash. (Again, I want this to be about Norman, not the Green Goblin.) ( Masks )
Fandoms: X-Men/Wolverine and Kick Ass
A/N: This takes place after the end of both X2 and Kick Ass, and pretends they took place at about the same time. Thanks to patih
for giving it a read and making suggestions!Specific request: Wolverine and Hit Girl. Gen please! Or at least no relationship with Hit Girl without aging her significantly! I'd love a story where Wolverine runs face to face with Hit Girl, who makes him recall all the young kids he's trained and wonders if he's crossed the line. Shenanigans welcome.
( Supergirl )
Title: Lose These Blues I've Found
Fandoms: X-Men Movieverse/Fantastic Four
Characters: Hank McCoy, Ben Grimm, Jubilee, Kitty, Johnny Storm. Hank/Brand.
Warnings: slight body image issues?
Summary: A chance meeting at a clothing store leads to an unlikely friendship between Hank and Ben.
A/N: Post-X3, no spoilers for the Fantastic Four movies. Abigail Brand is imported from the comicsverse, but I don't think prior knowledge of her is necessary to this fic. Title from Bruce Springsteen's "Lucky Town". (Fills a mundane_bingo square: buying new clothes and/or shoes.)( Lose These Blues I've FoundCollapse )
Title: You Get What You Need
Author: Joanne/[Bad username: joanne_c]
Recipient: Guen/[Bad username: ragingpie]
Fandoms: Iron Man/Spider-Man
A/N: Takes place between the two Iron Man movies, and after the events of Spider-Man 2.

A Girl's Gotta Do...RECIPIENT: likeadeuceMOVIES:
Daredevil/Iron Man 2REQUEST:
Daredevil/Black Widow -- Boxing, a missing document, perfume. Shippy preferred, but sexual tension, matching of wits is also awesome. Feel free to use comics canon or ignore it -- I'm only vaguely familiar with their comics verse history.SUMMARY:
Sometimes, Natasha Romanov hated her job. And sometimes, it's most... satisfying. Also featuring Tony Stark because he's an attention hog.RATING:
1900( Sometimes, Natasha Romanov hated her job.Collapse )
Title: Common Cause
Written for a_q
Prompt: Female characters & a team-up
Fandom: X-Men movieverse
Characters: Raven Darkholme (Mystique), Natasha Romanova (Black Widow)
Word count: 1,305
Disclaimer: These characters belong to FOX and Marvel and God knows who else, but certainly not me.
A/N: We don't really know anything about movie-Natasha's background, yet, so I've invented one loosely based on the comics. God knows if any of these assumptions will turn out to be true.( FIC: Common CauseCollapse )
Thanks to the volunteers for pinch hits. The MIA fic has gone out and none of you that responded to double check that it wasn't you was the cause of my angst.
I hope to go live by the end of the week.
I am missing 1 fic. The person writing it has gone MIA, so if you see this post - and you KNOW who you are - at least have the decency to tell me that you're dropping out or post to the queue.
Otherwise, is anyone available to pinch hit a very quick turn around?
I will do my best otherwise, but it'll be a few days. Real life is not kind this week. If someone can pinch hit, we'll go live as soon as the last fic is in.
I'm screening comments.
I could really use one more pinch hitter. Is anyone willing?
Otherwise, all stories should be posted within the week and with any luck, we'll go live at the beginning of next week!
So far, I still have three stories outstanding and am in DESPERATE need for two pinch hitters.
Please? People, if you have to wait for me to write them all, this won't open for a long time. I'm just saying...
For anyone who has had issues posting to the queue, I think I've got it figured out. I'm still missing a few stories - please, PLEASE, let me know if you're still planning to post a fic if you signed up!
The deadline to turn in fics is Sunday the 15th (tomorrow)! Please post directly to the community. All posts should now be locked and I will open the queue when everyone has a fic.
Please make sure your headers include the following:
Warnings: (If you choose not to warn, please state that you are choosing not to warn. Oherwise, please include warnings for any major triggers. I trust your judgment.)
In the header, please include the title of your fic and your recipient (MOST AWESOME FIC EVER for Recipient).
I have need of some pinch hitters. PLEASE let me know if you're interested and able to write a pinch hit for me. I'd really appreciate it.
A few of you have asked about extensions until Monday. Take them. But if I don't have fics by Monday, or an email swearing that a fic will be up by Tuesday, there will be a pinch hit sent out. Go ahead and post your fic if you finish it and consider your recipient a very lucky individual!
There is still time to get those fics done and in - remember the deadline has been moved to August 15.
However if you know that you won't get a fic turned in already, please comment here and let me know so I can find a pinch hitter.
Also, I know of one fic that will need a pinch hit, so if anyone would like to volunteer, please drop me a note in the comments (which are screned) and let me know what movies you're willing to write.
A few people have asked about pushing the deadline out a week, making fics due Aug. 15, which means they'll go live on the 21st.
I have no objections to this if no one else does.
If this will cause anyone any problems, let me know, please.
Otherwise, I'll go ahead and extend the deadline a week.
I have sent assignments out. If you have a problem with your assignment, please let me know ASAP. You can drop a message here (screened) or send me an email at bewize @ yahoo . com.
I know that I extended sign ups, but everything else seems to be on course, so at this point, I have no intention of extending the deadlines. Please let me know if you think you'll need more time and I can reconsider.
Sign Ups: June 14-25
Assignments Out: First week in July
Fics Due: August 6
Pinch Hits: August 7-15
Ficathon Goes Live: August 16
Hey guys, we've got 9 people signed up and I'm going to extend sign ups so that you can all go and lure other writers here to play. :)
I'd hate for people to miss the deadline because they actually *miss* it.
Hi folks! I’m your moderator, ficwize
. You can contact me at bewize @ yahoo . com (no spaces!). I'm still looking for a second mod, so if anyone is interested, please let me know! I'd really appreciate someone who is tech savvy enough to do things like… update the tags!General Info
To sign up, you'll make four requests. For each one, you'll request a crossover of up to three movies or characters from various movies, or a pairing and a specific request or scenario. Your writer will pick one of your requests to write a story about. We ask that you keep your prompts vague enough to allow your writer to have fun, but don’t be afraid to ask for what you want, either.
This year, one of your requests may be crossing a Marvel movie with a non-Marvel-but-still-comic-book movie. (Batman: The Dark Knight/Iron Man, Kick Ass/Wolverine: Origins, etc.). It is important to note that this request will NOT be used to match you with your author. It is a wild card request and will be treated as such! For now, if the movie you'd like to use as your non-Marvel movie has a comic attached to it, it is a valid choice. If you do not want a non-Marvel crossover, you may request a fourth Marvel crossover instead.
You'll also list at least at least three movies (preferably five) that you are willing to write. Please do not list X-1,2,3 or Spidey 1,2,3 and think that you’re meeting the guidelines.
You must pick at least two franchises (X-men, Spiderman, Hulk, Iron Man, etc.) to include, although more is better. (Keep in mind that the source material is only a few hours of commitment to absorb, too. So, stretch out, if need be!)
In addition to the movies, you may name characters, pairings or scenarios that you will not
write. This is very important! If you are not willing to write Rhodey from Iron Man, then you need to make sure that you say that! If you don’t, and you receive a request asking for Rhodey, that will be YOUR problem, not mine. (Please don’t make it mine. You won’t like me if your problem becomes mine.) Likewise with slash, teacher/student, incest, etc. Be as specific as you need to be!
Finally, if you are willing to write comics characters that aren’t in the movie, please give me an indication of who that would be.I reserve the right to beg you to change as need be, but I won’t force the issue.
Last year, given the nature of the requests, I did end up with one person who was nearly impossible to match. So, please keep in mind that the more varied your requests, and the more generous your offers, the more fun this will be for me. *ahem*
All stories must be at least 1000 words.( Click Here for All the Details!Collapse )Thanks to the xmmficathon for providing a format for the rules, which I stole and tweaked.
