Gameplay will closely resemble that of the past several years, but we're running two experiments that many players requested, and holding one jubilee that most players approved. If these work well, making the fest happier and more fun, we'll keep them for future games:
- Crossovers optional
In addition to the three baseline prompts (gen, pairing, wildcard), players may choose to submit a fourth optional prompt (crossover). Qualifying works cross/fuse Forever Knight with another fandom such that FK receives more than half of the focus. As long as the same one prompt description is used, the requester may list up to three fandoms from which the writer may choose. (I expect that matching on crossover fandoms will be chancy! I'll try, but please have realistic expectations. We all love FK; what else we love differs.)
- Add up to total word count
All fiction contributions must total a minimum of 1,000 words. A series of closely related shorter stories (including the popular "5 Things" and "5 Times" frames) are permitted, as long as the stories add up to at least 1,000 words and post as a unit (that is, within a single file on the AO3; use the "chapter" functionality instead of multiple files as needed).
- Past defaults forgiven
The slate is clean. In a jubilee to celebrate our fifth annual game, all past defaults are absolved. Come play again!
I plan to post announcements to ForKni-L, fandomcalendar, last_writes, oldschoolfic and femme_fic over the next week, pending permissions and such. If you think of anywhere else that we should wave our flag, please feel free to post there yourself (or let me know, or both)! Comments on Dreamwidth:
