Marvel Tony KoNY

Growin' Up (Iron Man/Fantastic Four, gen)

Title: Growin’ Up
Author: harmonyangel
Crossover: Fantastic Four and Iron Man
Characters: Tony, Reed, cameos from the rest of the Fantastic Four. Gen with some canon Reed/Sue.
Word Count: 3,400
Recipient: inlovewithnight
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None
Request: Reed and Tony, gen or slash. They're the smartest men in the world. And completely dysfunctional in completely different ways. There should be something with that.
Summary: Four times Tony Stark saved Reed Richards’ life, and one time it was the other way around.
Author’s Notes: Many thanks to second_batgirl for beta and hand-holding, and to likeadeuce and transemacabre for encouragement and feedback along the way. Title and section headers are from Bruce Springsteen’s “Growin’ Up.” Also, I haven’t taken a real science class since high school, so forgive me if my scientific mumbo-jumbo is a little less than plausible. It’s comic books, right?

Posting Guideline! (ETA: Posting is NOW OPEN!)

So tomorrow is the big day. A few of you have obtained extensions, but there should be plenty to read and I, for one, am terribly excited!

Please feel free to post your fic directly to this community. If you'd rather, you may post at your own journal and link to the community, provided that your post is unlocked, of course.

Please use the following heading:

Author's Notes:

Please make sure you use an LJ cut, if you decide to post directly to the community.

I will make a master list on Monday and post it here. Thank you all so much! You've been absolutely wonderful. ♥

Two Days!

Now is the time to send those fics to beta if you haven't already, make those final changes, and if you're going to drop out - to tell me.

Good luck all! I'm so excited to see what's coming. I've had the privilege of sneak peeks (thought I haven't cheated too badly) and I *can't wait*!!

Points of Interest

Hi all!

Two things:

1. If I haven't seen a draft from you, and you haven't discussed it with me, please do at once. Even if you had an extension, that was only until the 24th. I want to make sure everyone is covered. :)

2. The xmmficathon is geared up again! They are going to extend the deadline to sign up until after the posting deadline here, so that you can all sign up knowing what request someone has written for you and don't risk duplicating fics. More information about sign ups can be found at that community.

We're heading down the home stretch folks! Five days until all the shiny fic is posted for our enjoyment! You've all been excellent so far! Keep it up. :)

Hello, all.

This is just a quick note that drafts were due to me yesterday.

I'm still waiting to hear from four of you. If you could please either send me a draft, or drop me a note here and let me know that you need an extension, you would help me sleep better tonight. :)

For those who asked for extensions, please let me know if you feel like you're not going to make it after all, so I can arrange a pinch hitter.

If you signed up to pinch hit (especially if you've already turned in a draft), I may be contacting you for your services. :)

The Deadline Approaches!

Hi all! Just a quick reminder that drafts of your fics should be sent to me (bewize @ yahoo . com) by July 20th, per the deadlines, so that I may find pinch hitters if need be.

Thanks to those of you who have already sent them along. I'm so excited for the posting date!

Now, several of you have approached me about possible extensions for various reasons - the most common one being the femslash deadline. If you need an extension, please drop me a note in the comments here and let me know.

I want this to be fun for everyone, so if its a problem, we can try and work something out. But if you ask me for an extension and then don't come through - I will hunt you down. Just saying... *grins*

Good luck and thanks to everyone for playing!

Also, if anyone needs help finding a beta, drop me a note here. I'm screening all comments.

Marvel Movies Crossover Ficathon: Rules and Sign Ups

Hi folks! I’m one of your moderators, ficwize. You can contact me at bewize @ yahoo . com (no spaces!). hockeyiris has also graciously offered to help, and the pretty community format is thanks to her. Feel free to bug her at hockeyiris @ gmail . com.

General Info

To sign up, you'll make three requests. For each one, you'll request a crossover of up to three movies, characters 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.

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, 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.

All stories must be at least 1000 words.

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