Round 5: Vices - Master Story List
by escargoat (escargoat)
at July 12th, 2009 (07:24 am)

It is indeed time to start posting those fics that you've been working so slavishly on for the past few weeks (or days or hours).

To allow for time zone differences and the hassle of real life, you have from now until July 18th to post your fics. Please post them in an area accessible to your average reader (aka not password protected or a friends locked post).

Once you do that, simply comment to this post with the following information and I'll add it to the master table:

Title:
Pairing:
Rating:
URL: (just the url itself, don’t pretty it up with tags, please)

A big thank you to all the writers who participated this year.

ETA: Posting is now closed for Round 5 - a big thanks to all who participated.

And without further ado:

Round Five: Vices - Soon Coming Posting Period
by escargoat (escargoat)
at June 29th, 2009 (12:29 pm)

Time flies when you're thinking of ways to kill the new mod because of the prompts that she gave you.

Because the ficathon didn't start at its normal time this year, I figured I'd put up a reminder that the posting period for your fics will start on July 12th and run through July 18th, so your fics should be completed by July 11th.

If something has come up and you're no longer able to participate, or you just want to send me a tuna casserole recipe, you can contact me at escargoat {at} hotmail {dot} com.

Round Five: Vices - Prompts
by escargoat (escargoat)
at May 14th, 2009 (05:50 pm)

In the spirit of wanting to lower my chances of getting lynched  niceness, I put together the prompt list today.

While they were not due until Saturday, I figured that having a couple more days of possible procrastination/writing time never hurt anybody.

Your prompts are under the cut below. Remember that your prompts can be used in anyway that you desire.

The prompts were picked by me, but randomly assigned by my number generator for the "fairest" balance that I could have.

You will notice that although I signed up for the ficathon, I did not assign myself any prompts.  It would have been rather unfair, in the spirit of the ficathon, to give myself a prompt as I could've completely controlled what I got.

So, I'm giving all those who signed up the chance to get their revenge on me. You may each assign me one prompt by replying to this post.
 
If you hated one of your prompts, you can certainly make me share your misery. If you don't want to participate, you do not have to; this is strictly voluntary. My only request is that your prompt (should you decide to give one) fits into one of the three prompt categories.

Without further ado, here are your prompts:

Round Five: Vices
by escargoat (escargoat)
at April 28th, 2009 (05:36 pm)

Welcome to the Fifth Round of The Sentinel Slash Ficathon!

This round is set to celebrate our dear Detective Ellison's short career as a member of Vice. Now before you start to worry, this isn't a theme requiring you to write a Vice department story. (Although if you decide to write that, you certainly may.)

Rather the prompts are going to be based on 'vices' that some people have. You will be given three prompts for this ficathon: a Drink, a Dessert, and a Drug.

An example prompt would be something like this:
Drink: Tom Collins
Dessert: Cherry Pie
Drug:  Zantac (And you thought they were all going to be hard-core drugs)

Your prompts are yours to play with in any manner that you choose.

Now that I've rambled on enough, here are the specifics:

TS Slash Ficathon Round 5
by escargoat (escargoat)
at April 27th, 2009 (05:44 pm)
Tags:

As spikedluvmentioned in the previous post, I will be your moderator for the next round of The Sentinel Slash Ficathon.

I know that sign-ups typically have started in March with the fics being due in May, but I think we can all agree that particular timing isn't going to work out this year :)

Of course just because we have missed the normal timing period, it doesn't mean that we cannot still have a ficathon this year. So with that in mind, I will be posting the Round 5 ficathon sign-up sometime within the next week once I get the timing straightened out. 

(It would, after all, be rather embarassing if the mod couldn't be on-line to make the post for the big fic reveals.)

The timing for sign-ups, writing, and posting will remain similar to previous ficathons as will the basic format of the ficathon.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I hope to see you at the sign-ups.

Looking for new Mod

As much as I hate to admit it, I haven’t been paying Jim, Blair or The Sentinel fandom as much attention as they deserve lately, and I feel that the ficathon should be run by someone who's more involved in the fandom, so I’m looking for someone who is willing to run the ficathon this year, with an eye towards taking it over on a permanent basis.

If you’re interested, or you have any questions, please comment here (comments will be screened) or e-mail me at spikedluv @ livejournal.com.

Thank you.

The Great Beta Swap-Meet
by sara_merry99 (sara_merry99)
at April 11th, 2008 (08:29 pm)
current mood: organized

We hope the writing is going well for everyone. We've gotten questions about finding beta-readers for stories and we decided to try and make that available through the comm.

Here's how we'll work it:

If you're willing to beta, comment on this post with the subject line: Beta Offer. Include in your comment any preferences (including genres that you don't want to read).

If you need a beta, comment on this post with subject line: Beta Request. Include the length of your story and any other pertinent information.

Keep an eye on this post for offers and requests when we get closer to the deadline.

It's that simple! We hope that this will provide a place where people can find someone to beta their ficathon story.

sara_merry99 and I would like to thank you all for signing up to participate in this round of The Sentinel Slash Ficathons!

Below the cut are the list of prompts. Please remember that you may use either of the assigned titles (or both, if you’re so inclined) as inspiration for your fic. How you use them is entirely up to you, and you may twist the prompt however you like.



Prompt Assignments:Collapse )



Stories will be due the last week of May -- Sunday, May 25 through Saturday, May 31 -- which gives you eight weeks to write! Please don’t post your stories before then. On the 25th, I’ll post a Master List right here at ts_ficathons and ask you to provide links in the comments. Please friend us if you’d like to receive announcements and reminders on your f-list.

Thank you!

Round Four: Cold Case Files

at March 1st, 2008 (09:49 am)

Welcome to Round Four of The Sentinel Slash Ficathons!

sara_merry99 and I are thrilled to announce that the theme for our fourth round is Cold Case Files, where old episode titles get a fresh look.

I have culled 100 of the most interesting episode titles (in my opinion *g*) from Angel the Series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, due South, NCIS, Numb3rs and Supernatural. We’ll drop those titles into a hat and randomly assign everyone two titles, one from the supernatural collection (Ats/BtVS/SPN) and one from the crime drama collection (dS/NCIS/N3).

For example, your prompt might be: Lie to Me (BtVS)/SWAK (NCIS). Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to use either of those titles (or both, if you’re so inclined) as inspiration for your fic. How you use them is entirely up to you, and you may twist the prompt however you like.

Round Three: The Sentinel Gets a Clue - Prompt Assignments

sara_merry99 and I would like to thank you all for signing up to participate in this round of The Sentinel Slash Ficathons! We had a lot of fun coming up with lists of people, places and things for The Sentinel Gets a Clue, and we hope that you have just as much fun writing your prompts. *eg*

Each of the person, place and thing prompts we’ve assigned come directly (or indirectly *g*) from the episodes. You must use all three of the prompts in your fic. However, though they’ve been assigned in “Clue” format, how you use the prompt is entirely up to you, and you may twist it however you like. With that little disclaimer out of the way, let’s get to the big reveal!

You have eight weeks to write. Fic will be due on Sunday, May 20, when we’ll post a Master List right here at ts_ficathons. Please friend us if you’d like to receive announcements and reminders on your f-list.

Welcome to Round Three of The Sentinel Slash Ficathons!

First, I’d like to thank sara_merry99 for stepping in and helping me out with this round! Thank goodness she had no idea what she was letting herself in for. *g*

And now, about the ficathon. The theme for our third round is ‘The Sentinel Gets a Clue’, which will be based very loosely on the game Clue. How loosely, you ask? Well, we’re going to assign you a prompt consisting of a person, place and thing, and you have to use those three items in your fic. They can form the basis of your entire fic, or be mentioned in passing; how you use them is entirely up to you, and you may twist the prompt however you like.

To make things even more interesting, the “person” will be one of the guest characters we’ve met on the series.
