Promoting Oldschoolfic

I did sign up for oldschoolfic, the ficathon for canceled series.  Join us?  They've got just ~5 players for their spring event and may have to cancel without a few more.  (I would hate to lose this playground for out-of-production fandoms; there are so few places for my best-beloved series.)  This time, I offered FK, HL, YB or BSG'78.  I know that others have offered B5 and FK; I assume that many more are offered, too.

Sign-ups close this Wednesday, 02/29.  Stories come due 04/30. 

As I posted over the weekend, oldschoolfic works like this: Players submit three prompts, usually two from two listed fandoms and a third from any canceled fandom ("wildcard"), but the rules also permit multiple prompts in a single listed fandom.  Listed fandoms:

Angel, the Series
Babylon 5
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Battlestar Galactica (1978, original)
Forever Knight
Sarah Connor Chronicles

The listed fandoms have been written in past oldschoolfic games (and also meet some other criteria known only to the moderator).  They povide a baseline to ease matching.  Remember to note any unlisted canceled fandoms ("wildcards") that you are willing to write (for example, Young Blades or Quantum Leap or Dungeons and Dragons (the animated series)).

This game's minimum 1K words may be accomplished in a single story, or two 500-word stories, or ten 100-word stories, etc.

A new twist this time is that in addition to another player's slate of three direct prompts, each writer also receives a third player's random song-lyric prompt.  (The lyric is "bonus points," not required.)
