**Post title with apologies to Douglas Adams**

Thanks very much to all who wrote, read and commented on the fics for the Kara Thrace Fic Exchange! What we lacked in quantity, we surely made up for in quality! I hope you all had fun and maybe we can do another gen fic battle with open prompts in the spring? What do you think? Who's interested?

Also, before I post the list of fic authors, I'd like to reiterate that this comm is open for anything sorta general interest relating to Kara (so no shippy fic/art please, but anything general that celebrates this character is welcome!). So feel free to submit posts here if you like. I am moderating/approving mainly just so we don't get any spam or other unwanted stuff, but I'm happy to speedily rush through the queue anything relevant to Kara and our collective interests here!

Now without further ado, the results of our Fic Exchange:

(Athena flies the raptor, Dee's there for communications and also it's her turn on the roster, and Kara's there to mock raptors for their inefficiency and general lack of sexiness) - OR, Boomer could be there, which could put it pre-series or season one.”

I've changed it slightly so she's adjusting to life on Galactica, but there is some friendly Helo and some victorious excelling, even if the bacon she saves is mostly her own. Enjoy!

Just a note to participants that all Kara Fic Exchange Assignments have been emailed. (ETA: One of which just bounced...so if you were the person I had to chase about sending me an email that works....please contact me again with a proper email. Thanks.)

The 1500 (or more)-word stories are due by November 30, midnight EST.

The plan is to post a story a day anonymously for eight days and then a reveal list.

As always, feel free to let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or problems.

[identity profile] callmeonetrack.livejournal.com

So sign-ups for the Gen Fanfic Exchange are due to close at Midnight EST tonight (just over 3 hours away) and we thus far only have 8 entries.

Those that have already signed up: do you care if there's only 8 of us participating?

Those who are definitely planning to participate, please get your comments in at the sign-up page.

Those of you still on the fence, what would tip you into participating?

Do you need an extension/longer time to submit the story? Is November 30 too soon, what with NaNo and Yuletide and Porn Battles taking up your time? Or ...do you not like the 1500-words count? Too much? Should we make it a 1000?

I look forward to your comments! Thanks! (And of course, feel free to spread the word. This has been all over The Wireless, Galactica News, and posted at bsg2003fics and battlestarblog. I didn't post at the shipper comms because it's a gen fanfic challenge.)

Just wanted to post a quick reminder that sign ups for the Kara Gen Fanfic Exchange continue through Thursday at Midnight EST for those of you who are interested.

Sign Up Post is Here

Turnout is low right now, but I imagine some of you guys are big procrastinators like I am. ;) Hope you all will come and play.

Welcome to the Kara Thrace Lives Fic Exchange!

What’s it all about Alfie?

This will be an anonymous general fanfiction exchange. General fanfiction may include allusions to romantic relationships, maybe even employ romance as an element to illustrate a larger theme, but, romance, or the lack of it, should not be the point of focus for the story. Action-Adventure, Friendship, Humor, Angst, Comfort, all of these are good categories to explore. Kara could lead a mission, make a sacrifice, exact revenge, solve a mystery, confess a secret, come to a decision, teach a student, go on a quest, reflect on a mistake, celebrate a victory, learn a lesson, question an order, save a life, or roll the hard six (just to name a few options). The possibilities are endless.


How does it work?

You specify a story you'd like written for you with one or more (if you’d like to give your writer a choice) very specific prompts (i.e. I’d like to see Kara teach Dee how to fly that raptor in Eye of Jupiter or how about a Kara/Laura friendship story set on New Caprica?) and in return you'll be assigned someone else's request to write. You'll submit the story via email and it will be posted anonymously in this comm for at least one week before all authors are revealed.

Rules:

1. Minimum length: 1500 words

2. Please have your story beta read before submitting.

3. If something comes up and you won’t be able to write your assigned story, please let me know as early as possible. We’ll have some pinch hitters waiting in the wings.

4. Remember it’s anonymous, so fic should be a surprise for its recipient, so don’t mention it to them in advance.

5. Also remember, it’s a gen fic exchange, so don’t ask for romantic or sexual stories involving Kara. Romance or sex can be a PART of the story that you write, but don’t make it the main focus.

Schedule:
Signups begin October 1, 2009 and close October 15, 2009 11:59 PM EST.

Assignments will be sent out October 20, 2009.

Stories should be submitted to the mod (Taragel [at] aol.com) via email NO LATER THAN November 30, 2009 11:59 PM EST.

Posting begins December 1, 2009.

A master list revealing all authors will be posted a week after the final entry goes up.


TO SIGN UP:

Simply copy & paste these bolded prompts into a comment with your answers and reply to this thread. All replies will be screened to help with the anonymity of the exchange.

LJ Username:
E-mail address:
What I’d like to have written for me:
(ex. I’d like a story where Kara unexpectedly bonds with another woman in the fleet )
One thing I do not want written for me:
(i.e. if you hate Leoben and don’t want him in your story, say so)
One thing I do not want to write for someone:
(i.e. if you don’t like to write about Kara’s childhood with her mother, say so and I’ll be sure not to pair you with someone who wants to read about that.)
Would you be willing to pinch-hit?



Please feel free to spread the word about this ficathon far and wide!
