Hi-ho, ficcers!

I wish to apologise for my extended absence. Work and sickness and school have made for very little time on the internet.

This is the main reason for this post. I am advertising for a new moderator. It's not fair on you to have to keep waiting for me to reappear during term time. If anyone is interested, please contact me (clairebunny @ gmail . com) and I will give them any further details they need.

Thank you again for helping this community grow and thrive - I'm sorry I can't keep it running on my own!

Keep ficcing, chaps!

Master List

Here it is, ficcers. The Jam Pony Fic Winter Ficathon Masterlist. This is where you will be able to find all the fics written for this event, collected in one place. When you post your entries for the ficathon, post a comment with a link to the fic on this post so I can update it. Also, please make a note of the prompt you chose and who you wrote for in the fic post.

Enjoy, ficcers! Thanks for all your participation!

The List )

Hi-ho, ficcers!

As you all should know, the Ficathon entries should be being posted from Monday. I will put the Masterlist post up on Sunday night and it will be updated throughout the week with links to all the ficathon entries. Please make sure to clearly mark your fics as ficathon entries, and also to say who the fic is for. This will make it easier for me to collect the list together.

Once all the ficathon entries are in - and as I've had no requests for extensions I'm assuming they should all be in by the end of next week - I'll re-start the last Contest, Life After the Bus Ride Out, which was put on hold due to NaNo and Christmas etc. Entries for that will be due in at the end of February.

One final note, please remember to tag your posts. There's a list of tags in the community profile and if you want any more tags adding, please email me and let me know - I don't bite!

That's all for today, ficcers!

Hi there, Ficcers!

I just want to wish you all a happy new year, and to thank you all for making this group what it is.

When I started this back in June, I never would have guessed that anyone would have joined it - and if you'd told me that six months later there would be over 100 members, I never would have believed you. I'm thrilled, flattered and utterly overjoyed that you are all here, making this community what it is - even if I've been lax in my duties for the past few months thanks to University.

Happy New Year, everybody, and here's to more ficcing in 2007!

Hi-ho ficcers, apologies for my absence - November seems to be the month of assignments and DEATH here at the University of Leicester!

Just a quick reminder about this month's Contest - Life After the Bus Ride Out (Catchy, hm? I needed something to put on the banner). It's still open! The original closing date was to be November 30th, but as yet we've had no entries and November is NaNo WriMo month. What would the reaction be if we started setting the contests every other month? It would give people more time to write their entries at any rate. Comment and let me know! Or, y'know, e-mail me (clairebunny(at)gmail(dot)com) if you don't want everyone else to see!

Thank you for keeping this community alive while I've been drowning on my end - I really appreciate it. Can I just ask to make sure everyone tags their work. If you want a list of tags they can be found in the userinfo - and if you want another one adding, just let me know!

That's it for now, ficcers. I'm hoping to have the sign-up sheet for the ficathon up in a few days, so keep an eye out!

Now, back to work! Bip bip bip!

Contest #3

Well Ficcers, as we all know - the lovel [livejournal.com profile] savannahjan won the last contest, and was set the task of coming up with a challenge for this month's one!


Write the after story of someone who had to leave Seattle. So many characters were on for an episode and then sent on their way, usually on the bus? Do they have a good life? Do they ever encounter one of their transgenic friends again? Do they come back? This is wide open. Just make sure you have a character that was sent on their way in the series.


So there you go, chaps. What about Kendra? Hannah? Hell, even Herbal (although I privately believe he hitched a lift on the TARDIS and went back in time to live out the rest of his days with Bob Marley). Asha, maybe?

Entries will be due by November 30th, so get to work ficcers!

Bip bip bip!

The voting for the last contest is now closed, a little later than anticipated, thanks to the internet in my halls being a pain.

Thanks to everyone who took part, either in writing or voting. Sorry this challenge seemed to be harder than the previous ones!

Now, to business...

And the winner is... )

If you could e-mail me with the subject for the next entry by November 6th, that'd be great!
[identity profile] mythverdandi.livejournal.com
Aloha, Ficcers!

Just a quick reminder for the current contest - Unadulterated Loathing - is still open for entries until October 31st. We've got four entries now, but there are 92 of us! That's a bit feeble, chaps!

For those who don't know the process, a poll with links to all the fics will go up on November 1st for 3 days. The winner will be announced on November 4th and then they have until November 6th at the very latest to come up with the topic for the next contest and e-mail it to me. The sooner the better! As well as that, they will be presented with a nifty little banner that they can use wherever they see fit to pimp their work and general awesomeness.

Welcome to all new people, by the way! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to see this little community growing. I know I've been a bit absent lately, and I can make all the excuses in the world, but you guys don't really care, and I'm just pleased how well the comm's running without me.

In other news, I've been toying with the idea of a ficathon to try and really kickstart the rest of you sleepy ficcers out there.

[Poll #855314]

Any other comments? Ideas?

That's all people, remember to enter the contest!

Alright Ficcers, I've been a little lax in my reminding duties this month due to everything that's going on, but this month's contest - Unadulterated Loathing - is still open and your entries are due in just over a week!

If you're interested in hearing the song, I've reuploaded it here. We've only had two entries so far and there are nearly 90 members now! The entries are due in by October 31st for a poll to go up the following day.

Come on ficcers! Once we get this contest out of the way we can move onto an easier one!

Bip bip bip!

Hi-Ho ficcers!

You'll be glad to hear that I'm all moved in with my internet set up, although unfortunately suffering from Fresher's Flu. *sneezes*

Welcome to any new people - it always cheers me up when I see the numbers on the members section go up.

Just a quick post to remind you that the latest Contest, "Unadulterated Loathing", is still going. We've only had two entries, people! Entries are now due in by October 31st.

Get writing, people! Bip bip bip!
[identity profile] mythverdandi.livejournal.com
Okay ficcers,

I'm extending the deadline of this month's contest, partly because we've only had two entries and partly because I'm just not going to have time at the moment to sort out the poll and everything, what with the move.

So you now have until October 31st to get your entries in. Sorry about the delay!

Four Days left in the current Contest! Come on people! We've had two entries!

Surely the rest of you can do something with that prompt!

Bip bip bip, ficcers!
[identity profile] mythverdandi.livejournal.com
Happy Friday, ficcers! 77 Members! And we've only had one entry for this month's Contest! Are the rest of you asleep? You've only got a week left! Entries are due in by September 30th! And preferably before so I can start putting the poll together in a bit less of a rush!

Come on ficcers, if the prompt's that difficult then let's get it out the way asap, so we can get another one!

Bip bip bip!
[identity profile] mythverdandi.livejournal.com
Hey ho there ficcers! We appear to have acquired a few new members recently, so I'm just posting a reminder about this month's Contest! Let's see if we can get a good few entries this time - there are 73 members, after all! Remember, your entries will be due in by September 30th. Get writing, ficcers!

In other news, just a quick general reminder to tag your work. There's a list of tags in the community userinfo, and if you want another one added please let me know!

That's all for now, ficcers! Keep up the good work!

Bip bip bip!

Contest #3

Sep. 4th, 2006 07:15 pm
[identity profile] mythverdandi.livejournal.com
Okay, so, as I won the last contest I've got to think up the challenge for this month (the whole point of these contests was so that someone else could think up the challenges, come on people!)

The Challenge for September...


What is this feeling, so sudden and new, I felt the moment I laid eyes on you?
My pulse is rushing. My head is reeling. My face is flushing. What is this feeling?

Fervid as a flame, does it have a name?

Unadulterated loathing
For your face, your voice, your clothing.
Let's just say: I loathe it all

Every little trait however small makes my very flesh begin to crawl,
with simple, utter loathing.
There's a strange exhilaration
In such total detestation
It's so pure, so strong.
Though I do admit it came on fast, still I do believe that it can last
And I will be loathing, loathing
You my whole life long.

So, the rather delightful song What is this Feeling? from the musical Wicked.

Now, I think this song could be used to describe any number of relationships in Dark Angel. Max and Alec springs to mind immediately for me. Or Zack and Logan. Hell, maybe Original Cindy and Normal.

Your challenge then, ficcers, is to use this song in a fic. You can use the lyrics or just the sentiment, as long as somewhere in there there's a bit of "unadulterated loathing". Whether it lasts to the end of the fic or not is your choice entirely - remember in the musical, the two characters who sing this become best friends shortly thereafter; whether you want to go that same route is up to you.

Any characters, any interpretation. If you want to hear the song yourself, click on the song title underneath the lyrics.

Have fun ficcers! Bip bip bip!

Just a reminder ficcers! One day left in the current Contest.

As with last time, the poll will go up on September 1st and it'll be up for three days. The winner will be announced on the 4th, and then I will get in contact with them for the topic of the next contest, which I'll need by September 6th at the very latest. If you can get it back to me on the 4th, that would be great.

There's a chance that next month's contest might have a bit of an extension, due to the fact that I move into my dorms on October 1st. Hopefully I should be able to get the poll up before I go, but if not I'll post a notice and it'll be a two-month contest.

That's all for now, ficcers! Back to work! Bip bip bip!
[identity profile] mythverdandi.livejournal.com
Hi ho ficcers!

Just a quick post to remind you that there's only about a week left to get your entries in for this month's Contest!

We've had four entries so far! We passed the 50-member mark a couple of weeks ago, what're the rest of you up to?

Come on ficcers! Bip bip bip!

Contest #2

Aug. 4th, 2006 03:28 pm
[identity profile] mythverdandi.livejournal.com
As I'm sure you're all aware, this month's contest has been set by the winner of the July contest, the lovely [livejournal.com profile] minkmix.

Entries for this contest will be due on August 31st, with a poll going up on September 1st for you to vote for your favourite fics!

Here's the challenge!


In the spirit of our favorite sidelined and minor Dark Angel characters that we all know and love:

At some point within the fic... Sketchy has to beat Alec in a pool game.

But how?

Sketch distracts Alec with someone pretty of questionable gender? Rigs the table? Slips Alec some rufies? Alec has some mobsters watching and has to lose or they'll catch on to his hustling... ? Maybe Alec set him up. Or maybe Max keeps knocking his elbow every time he makes a shot just for the hell of it? Is Alec just wasted? Maybe Alec lets him win because of... why? Did Sketchy ask Alec to take a dive so he could be all sorts of cool for a lovely someone that might be watching?

Use any of that or ignore it all to insert your own way here! ;)

It can be from any character's POV, S1-S2!

It can be a happy or sad or totally neutral ending, but Sketchy comes out in the end with the dirty wad of cash and a smile or a frown.

Have fun!


You heard the lady! Bip bip bip!
[identity profile] mythverdandi.livejournal.com
Voting is now closed! Thank you to everyone who participated, either as a ficcer or a voter!

And the winner is... )

Well done, ficcers! Normal would be proud.
