A (not so) gentle reminder

Oi! Ideas/prompts are due today.

Remember...no more being lazy loser bitches.

Productivity/Prompt #....???

All right...today is productive day. I am going to catch up, not only on my work, but on other things I have been neglecting. Like this poor community. Which it does not deserve, because it is the world's BEST community.

So everyone front and center. Let's get this rolling. And yes, Gillian, that means you. No more excuses. Mia and I have pointy sticks and we know how to use them. (And we're your ride to the movies).

So this time's prompt is Productivity/Procrastination. How do I come up with these things? I don't know. It's a gift.

Ideas are due in by Monday and then pieces are due in by May 5th.

I shall be good and put my ideas down now.

1. Unpacking
2. Work
3. Cleaning

All things that can be both productive or procrastinated. Woo!

Assignment Four

Now that the first fic for Assignment Three has been posted (and the due date has come), I can post this.

Assignment Four is going to be Disneyland (yay!). However, unlike the food and footie challenges, there will be no ideas submitted for this challenge. Instead, everyone will write a story about all three of the OT3s going to Disneyland together. And each of these stories will include three or more of the following elements....

1. Eric and a nemo hat (or toy or whatever)
2. The longest wait EVER for Space Mountain
3. Sean and smoking (most likely NOT in the designated smoking area)
5. It's a small world
6. Cotton Candy
7. Fireworks
8. Meeting a character or some kind
9. Pirates of the Caribbean

Since I expect these stories to be rather long, I'm going to give us all extra time to write them. These stories will be due April 25th .

All Right...

So real life got a little distracting there and everyone missed the deadline. Eh. It happens. What matters is that we realized it happened and we are here to correct that mistake.

I'm keeping Assignment Three the same. I was debating changing it but in the end decided against it. So ideas for assignment three will be due this Friday, March 16 .

The same with the stories for Assignment Two. They will be due on Friday, but no one will be too upset if you don't get them in til Monday.

Let's get this back on track, shall we...

Edit: Now that we have 2/3 of the ideas for Assignment 3 in, I will say that the stories are due on April 4 . Assignment 4 will be posted when the first of the Assignment three stories comes in.


Assignment 3

As promised, here is assignment three. I was originally going to have assignment three be Valentine's day, but I think it might be a little too late for that.

So instead, assignment three will be football. Yeah. I just couldn't hold out any longer.

Ideas and claims will be due Wednesday, February 14th . Stories will be due Wednesday, February 28th .


I am going to extend the dealine for Assignment 2 until Wednesday - February 14 .

Assignment 3 will be posted later this afternoon.

Assignment the Second

Since the first deadline will soon be upon us, I thought it might be a good time to start thinking about assignment two. Again, this one is going to be pretty simple...

Food. Yes, that's right, assignment two is food. For this challenge, your ideas must revolve around food -- whether it be getting food, preparing food, or a certain type of food.

Ideas and claims will be due Friday, January 26th . Stories will be due Friday, February 9th .

A Word on Tags


Just a short note about tags. If you look at the fic I just posted, you will notice it has three tags -- assignment one, domorlimary, and ladykerradine. I'm thinking that all fics should be tagged this way; that way if you ever want to find a fic, you have three options for searching -- assignment, ot3, and author.

Any thoughts?


Assignment the First

This one is pretty simple....

Tell us your beginning. Who is your OT3 and how did they get together?

This assignment will be due Wednesday, January 24

Rules and Such (as written by Mia)

Right, so every tired fangirl has a dream - and often it involves inserting oneself into the OTP of their choice...or creating an OT3 of their own. Yes, you read that right, this is a place for OT3s...don't ask me why they're intriguing, they just are. We're trying to make this a friendly environment for our ramblings to save inbox space if nothing else. If you don't like it, don't play, but there are some rules...

Each week you will post ideas for your OT3 including challenges, thoughts, prompts, whatever. During the week the other members will claim/pick one of these ideas to write for you. You can decide if more than one person can write on the same thing, and you can decide if you want to repost an idea because it was not picked and/or you want to see how someone else does it. You will have 2 weeks to complete your story for the other member. However, to make this work, there are some rules:
1. You have to write your own beginning story. That way we all know how it started.
2. You must pick an idea from each of the other members - this way no one feels left out.
3. If you have an idea other than the one listed, you need to tell the person you're writing for - it's the nice thing to do.
4. We all understand how things are with life outside of LJ, so if something comes up and you can't make the deadline, then tell them. I'm pretty sure they'll understand.
5. Post your ideas on time, that way it can be a semi-regular thing and not a spur of the moment thing.
6. If you want to make changes/alterations to your OT3, tell the other members, it's only polite.
7. Remember to friends-lock all posts containing ideas and fics. The only posts that should be public are admin posts.
