Toby - "Regards to Anne Sexton" [20 Jun 2007|02:22pm]

[ mood | apathetic ]

Title: Regards to Anne Sexton

Notes: Toby/Andrea, pre-admin. It's lacking in word count and actual content but real life is kicking my ass.

Title: O Pioneer
Author: Sternel
Character: Abbey Bartlet
Rating: G
Pairings: N/A
Summary: Every dream has to start somewhere.
AN: Much of the background information came from the wonderful and extremely readable book Polio: An American Story, by David M. Oshinsky (Oxford University Press, 2005), which I highly recommend to anyone curious about the polio epidemic and vaccine trials. The Smithsonian also has a great website up here, with some terrific pictures. (Especially if you were a history major like me.)
The PA announcement at the end takes its wording directly from a press conference on April 12, 1955, announcing the results of the polio trials.
Many thanks to athena4lynn and nnaylime for their magnificent beta work.

If you're procrastinating like I am... [18 Jun 2007|03:20pm]

[ mood | curious ]

There is a fairly large fandom/fanfiction poll on my journal. If you're looking for something to do besides write your b4td fic, head on over. It is an unlocked post, for those of you not on my friends list (not to say that you're less because of this, please don't take it personally). For those of you that are on my FL, it is one of the posts for today.

I'd like to get a multitude of answers from various fandoms, so pass this along if you like. Have fun!!

Title: One Day in January

Author: sweetly_savage

Character: Claudia Jean Cregg

Rating: Kid Friendly (No swearing, no sex)

Pairings: None

Disclaimer: Does it belong to anyone anymore?

Summary: One day in January for CJ and her brothers.

Author's Notes: It's been forever and a day since I wrote anything, so I apologize for the rustiness. Marco said CJ was "the smartest, funniest, saddest girl in Dayton", and I thought there was probably a reason for the last.

This is for oldfashionedgrl and lifeasanamazon.

I know that real life has been whomping a lot of participants and some muses have gone on Tahitian holiday, soooo...

Extension time.

There will be a three day extension for all participants, which makes your entries due on Wednesday, June 20th, 2007.
Again, if you need a personal extension for longer, please let me know and we'll see what we can do.

If you have questions contact me via email or comments.
If you need a prompt or two, let me know and I can try and help out on that end as well.

Good luck!!! A little less than a week. This is exciting.

"Pivotal Evening" (Annabeth) [18 May 2007|10:58pm]

TITLE: Pivotal Evening
AUTHOR: 38gnihsurc
RATING: pea.gee for language (and alcoholic drinks?)
CHARACTER: Annabeth Schott (and Leo and Matt Gottfried are also sorta in this)
DISCLAIMER: I don't own anyone!
SPOILERS: None. TWW general.
NOTES: 1. Thank you to docfraiser8 for encouraging me and for helping me with the post-production. 2. I don't remember politics in the early 1990s; I didn't do too much research, either. So, if I screwed up... if the State of the Union speeches weren't focused on Foreign Policy, I apologise. 3. I am from Canada and I spell some words with u's---I know it's not the American way, but even though this is an American-setting, I'm not changing it. I'm set in my ways. 4. This story centers on Annabeth during her art history days. 5. I picked Savannah College of Art and Design for her school, although I have no idea what school Annabeth attended to study art history. 6. Laurie Schneider Adams is an art historian who writes books about psychoanalysis of art. 7. Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red, Cerulean and Prussian Blue are all paint colours. 8. I made up the bit about Annabeth being at O'Hare when the AA DC-10 crashed. Clearly. 9. Oh, and I kinda swiped part of a Willow-from-BtVS line for Annabeth, near the end.

(It took her a little longer than she expected to drag her too-well-packed suitcase up the three flights of stairs to the apartment she shared with her friends.)

Margaret, age 10…Collapse )

"Encompass Worlds, But Never Try to Encompass Me", Ann Stark [15 May 2007|03:59pm]

[ mood | restless ]

Title: Encompass Worlds, But Never Try to Encompass Me
Author: Maeve
Character: Ann Stark
Rating: PG
Pairings: Toby/Ann, Toby/Andrea
Author's Notes: Whitman. Song of Myself.
Thanks to soaked_in_stars and 38gnihsurc for looking over the first section. The tragedy that is the end is not their fault.
I'm tired of trying to figure out what's wrong with it. I wash my hands of it.

You and I, Toby? We're the same.Collapse )

We're almost to the end of the sign-up time. Thursday will be the last official day to sign up for a character (although I'll probably sign people up for open characters after the deadline. because I'm easy.).

One week... [10 May 2007|09:42am]

[ mood | indifferent ]

Only one week remaing to choose your character(s). If you've already chosen a character, and you think maybe you could handle two, choose a second one.

Tell all your friends. Bribe them, beg them, plead with them with sad little puppy eyes and whimpers galore.

Character update... [02 May 2007|01:17pm]

Okay. Two characters are now closed (at least until one of the fics is written).

Characters TakenCollapse )

*** Also?! For those of you who are worried that maybe your Muse will be out of town when it comes down to actually writing your fic, I'm offering a Prompt Service. Let me know if you need a little nudging and I'll try to come up with something.

I would also like to know if there are members willing to beta stories if an author requests it. If you're willing, please comment to this post.

[ mood | impressed ]

Congrats to all those who've finished on time. I'm loving the fics. Will comment after I get a chance to read through everything.

There will be an extension for those who haven't finished. Hopefully all fics can be posted by the end of this year. I'm not gonna get snippy about it though. If you're relatively sure that you won't be able to finish the fic, please let me know though.

If there was a character you wanted to write and didn't have the chance to from the beginning of the ficathon, feel free to claim that character and write the fic. I'll be leaving this community open after the ficathon is entirely over for any fiction that is written pre-administration.

Thanks to everyone for participating! Keep writing/reading/commenting.
