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...

Reminders! Deadline Approaches!

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).


Pinch Hits:

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.

Drop Outs

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!

Check In and Pinch Hits

Hi guys!

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.

Extended Deadline

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.

Sign Ups Are Open!

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.

Thanks to the xmmficathon for providing a format for the rules, which I stole and tweaked.

Non Marvel Crossover Options and Co-Mod Search

Hi folks!

I've been pondering the non-Marvel crossover option and have come to a decision about it.

I will be allowing ONE non-Marvel movie crossover request, but the crossover must be with another Comic Book movie. The whole point of this ficathon is that all the source material was supposed to easily consumable. That way, if anyone gets a request for a crossover involving a movie they've not seen, it's only a 2ish hour commitment!

I would be curious to hear suggestions for non-Marvel comics movies to be allowed. (Think Batman, Dark Knight, Watchmen, Kick Ass.)

Lastly, if anyone is willing to volunteer as co-Mod, I'm interested! Please let me know. :)

Tentative Schedule

Okay! Enough people seemed interested that we will indeed be having the marvel_crossing ficathon again this year!

I am tentatively scheduling as follows:

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

For my own sanity, I'm going to change a tiny bit of what goes on behind the scenes. Mainly, if your fic isn't into me on the 6th of August, a pinch hit will go out. I do not care if *I* am the author who's late - PINCH HIT.

Last year's delays stressed me out. I think this will work better.

Also, since last year had the bizarre happening where someone sent me a draft, but never bothered to post, fics will go into a queue on the 6th, which I will open on the 16.

I have tried to work around schedules - especially if people have told me that they plan to participate and that they have conflicts, but this is about the best I can do.

DATES ARE STILL SUBJECT TO CHANGE. But they probably won't by much...

If you have any MAJOR problems with this, please let me know. :)
