Round Seven - Author List

No anonymous entries, please!

a) Check your own ‘profile’. Tell me if there’s something missing or you want to change/add anything.

b) Choose THREE authors (no more, please no less)

c) Reply to this post with your requests (max. 3, one per author). Comments are screened.

- Author ##

- Author ##

- Author ##

The average request is:
Characters/Pairings you want the story to focus in.
Characters/Pairings you want in the story too.
Things you want: setting, timeline, quotes, specific objects...
Things you don’t want: characters, pairings, angst, fluff...
Extras: highest rating, genre...

Make sure the request fits the author.

- If you agreed to be available to write back-up fics, THANK YOU!

d) Yes, you can have the same request for two (or the three) authors.

e) I’d like your replies by Sunday (5th) night.

f) The ‘official deadline’ is April 19th. However, you can email me the link to your betaed story and I’ll link to it from the masterlist. (Due to broken links in the old masterlists, I'd like you to post a copy of the story at cya_archive)

Happy Choosing!

I delete authors from the list as they get four fitting requests, so please make sure your choice is still up for grabs before you post - or I'll tell you to choose again. Thank you!

Round 7 - Buffyverse

The people have spoken, and this new round will again be focused on the Buffyverse. Any character, any pairing, any season, and if you want to play with characters from other fandoms, crossovers are *love*! Btw, comic-based stories are welcome too.

Spread the word, I'm looking forward to 20 25 30 Buffyverse authors on this round, but we all know that it's more fun when there are more people to play with!

It seems cya_ficathon is coming back tomorrow for a seventh round.

Rules and details can be found at the profile.

Tentative dates are:

Sign up - Jan 19th to Jan 29th
Choosing your Authors - Jan 30th to Feb 5th
Assignments - Feb 7th
Posting Deadline - April 5th.

Now, Poll Time!

Poll #1811915 Choose Your Author, 7th Round

Should this round focus on...

the Buffyverse (BtVS/AtS)?
the Jossverse (BtVS, AtS, Firefly, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible...)
another fandom? (leave suggestions in the comments)

It is true that this ficathon was meant primarily for BtVS/AtS writers, but that was back in 2004. If your muse has traveled to other fandoms over the years, it should be a great challenge to integrate new interests.

But if you prefer to keep this a BtVS/AtS community, I'd love that, too!

14/07/08. Hello everyone! I have to say, this has been the best round ever. Everyone has been very considerate, and the one person who needed to drop out told me with time enough to arrange a back-up. Now, I'm hoping that doesn't mean tomorrow I'll be getting 'Sorry, but....' emails. lol

So, to all the authors who've participated in this round: THANK YOU! The first and foremost objective of Choose your Author is to let you all have some fun, both as requesters and as requestées. ;) And in that spirit, I hope you had as much fun as I did. Hopefully you'll consider signing up in November!

To add your story, please add a comment with title, link, main characters/couples, rating and any other information you consider necessary.

To all the readers who'll happen along... I hope you'll enjoy this collection of stories - and send some feedback to the writers! You're also invited to browse through the memories, where you can find stories by character.
