Two Ficathons  

The 2009 femme_fic ficathon is now accepting sign-ups here.  (As a reminder, this event celebrates female characters, minimum 1K words, sign-ups throughout February.)  Voting determined that FK will be a wildcard fandom again this year, so participants will need to sign up for two of the voted-in fandoms in addition to FK (or, you know, some other fandom ~g~).  What's different this year is that the sign-ups are not screened, so you can look over what has been requested/offered, and perhaps even craft your entry to match.  This was a very good event last year.

And the Claire Rankin-character Drabble-a-thon (hereinafter the Fleur Mini-Ficathon) is now open here.  Submissions are accepted throughout February (no claiming, no limits).  Some new Fleur stories would be cool (but of course her Atlantis and Voyager characters are also eligible).  Thanks to everyone who submitted Fleur prompts!  For your convenience, I'm sharing them here:

I am still planning to participate in your Mini-Ficathon, by the way. I just haven't been able to seize the time yet...

I have drafted three pieces for your Mini-Ficathon. Beta-reading has begun. Stand by for further updates this week. ;-)

I heard back from the beta-reader on the last piece on Friday. I will post by the end of Saturday (the end of February)! But I will be meeting the deadline as the clocks run over here in North America, not on your side of the globe. :-)
