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. :)
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. :)
I am curious to see if anyone is interested in participating in this ficathon again this year. It definitely won't be held until after Iron Man 2, but if you are interested, when would you be interested in seeing it held?
Lastly, I'm toying with the idea of allowing one crossover idea that is NOT between Marvel Movies. Would that be of interest? Or would you rather see something else totally dealing with Marvel/non-Marvel crossovers?

You know how those Catholic boys can be. Matt Murdock gets a pen-pal.Author's notes: joanne_c
, I'm so sorry this is late! This story plays fast and loose with comics canon, but since this is movieverse, I figured I could Make Stuff Up, Dammit. ;) Takes place pre-X1, pre-Daredevil. The summary is taken from "Forgiven" by Alanis Morissette.( A Thousand PagesCollapse )
Thank you so much to everyone who has posted their fics already! I have only had the chance to read a few, but they have been very good. I can't wait to read the rest!
There are several fics still outstanding. If you are waiting for a fic, please rest assured that I have conferred with all the authors and there are fics on the way.
Authors, if you're not going to be able to post within the next 24 hours (by the end of Monday night), please let me know. I will be assigning pinch hits if I do not hear from you.
For now, keep the fics rolling and if you haven't had a chance to read much yet, you are in for a real treat!
Title: The one that didn't go well.
Crossover: Iron Man/Daredevil
Characters: Tony Stark, Matt Murdock, Pepper Potts.
Author's Notes: The prompt was: Tony Stark looks upMatt Murdock and wants to help support him with eye surgery to repairhis sight, not realizing that Matt is Daredevil who sees in specialway. Thanks to Layna for the beta work!( the one that didn't go wellCollapse )
Her Place in the WorldAuthor: ficwizeRecipient:

X-men Movieverse/Iron Man MovieverseRating:
Extrapolation of characteristics from only vague movieverse facts. (Or, I don't know Pepper that well and did my best to fake it.) Allusions to movie violence.Summary:
Pepper Potts figures out her place in the world. And it's no where that she thought it would be. Disclaimer:

Many thanks to pdantzerl2
for both holding my hand as I wrote and then for the beta reading. All remaining errors are mine. Also, I totally fail at being timly for my own ficathon. So sorry!Her Place in the World
Faster Than Angels Fly
Warnings: Implications of sex
Prompt: Logan has never met him before, as far as he can remember. Remy is playing his cards close to the vest, but Scott notices how strange he's acting ...
If you're going to walk on thin ice, you might as well dance.Some souls only know one speed
Faster than angels fly( It's a long flightCollapse )
Seduction of the Somewhat InnocentAuthor: pdantzler2Crossover:
Iron Man and Spider-ManRecipient: liliaethRating:
Lots of graphic sex. Request:
Tony falls for Peter as Spider-Man, and thinks he might be interested because of Spidey's habit to flirt, even with the bad guys. He's surprised to find out that Peter's straight and sets out to convince him otherwise.Author's Notes:
Sorry, guys, I got started and I couldn’t stop with the porn. Tony made me do it. This is my first time writing explicit sex so don’t judge me too hard. This is supposed to take place after Iron Man and Spider Man 2. liliaeth
, sorry I read the prompt wrong and then it was too late to change my story. Tony meets Peter as Peter, not Spider-Man. Hope that’s okay. I like sex – plain and simple.
The (extra)Ordinary Life of Stan LeeAuthor: eldeeCrossover:
Origins: Wolverine / X-Men: The Last Stand / X-Men / Spider-Man / Fantastic Four II / The Incredible HulkRecipient: harmonyangelRating:
Marvel owns it... AND THIS IS FICTIONAL. This is not Stan Lee's real life. I do not own Stan Lee. I don't even know him! And I'm not making any money off this.Notes:
Have I mentioned this is FICTIONAL? Because it really is. Based on the cameos of Stan Lee, as if he was the same character in all the films. (Well, some of the films. I did what I could!) There is also a great vid here
at YouTube that shows all of Stan Lee's cameos, which was a great resource for me. Anyway, I tried, and I hope you enjoy it, harmonyangel
!! Many thanks to lonelywalker
for the beta! <3Growing up, Stan Lee thought of himself as an ordinary child.
Title: Black Tie
Author: Ion Bond (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Crossover: Spider-Man/Daredevil/Iron Man/X-Men/Fantastic Four/The Incredible Hulk
Warnings: Comicverse cameos! Non-explicit mayhem!
Summary: A New York City-based charity is having its first annual fundraising banquet and silent auction. What could possibly go wrong?
Author's Notes: This story is very canon-light across the board, but is meant to take place post-Spider-Man 1, post-Daredevil, post-Iron Man, post-X2, post-Fantastic Four 1 and pre-The Incredible Hulk. Any character you recognize, I don’t own. Many thanks to lilacsigil
