It's been a while....

The AUgust 2016 sign ups will remain open until Sunday August 7th, 2016.

As well there's always [livejournal.com profile] fv_amnesty where you can post your late fics and/or answer older promopts.

If you've forgotten how this works, I'll give you a brief run down. On AUgust 1st, I will post a non-fandom specific prompt or two. The prompt will be a non-fandom specific word, phrase or even a picture. You then have the month to write either 5-7 drabbles (100-500 words) or 3-5 ficlets/fics (501+ words) using the prompt and focusing on your claim.

It is now January 2010 and members who have signed up can now start posting their stories to the community.

If you would like some definitions and synonyms for our prompts this month:

CAJOLE.

FEVER.

As always please keep in mind that you only need to use one of the prompts in your stories and you can choose which of the prompts you wish to use. If you want to use cajole for all of your stories, that's great. If you use fever for one story and cajole for the rest, that's all great. How you interpret the prompts is completely up to you.

For those of you who have not yet signed up, please do so here. Sign ups will close on January 5th, 2009.

Happy Writing!

After a very long hiatus, [community profile] fic_variations is once again open for business. The January 2010 sign ups will remain open until January 5, 2010. As well, don't forget about [community profile] fv_amnesty the place to post your late fics or even answer older prompts.

January's prompts will be: cajole and fever.

As always you can interpret the prompts however you want. You do not need to use both prompts for all of your fics, you just need to use one of the prompts per story. So if you want to use cajole for one drabble and then use fever for your remaining drabbles, you do so.

Please remember that the challenge is that you have one month to write either 5-7 drabbles (100 to 500 words in length) or 3-5 ficlets (501+ words).

When making your claims, please use the following form:
.

Members can make two claims. And any member can claim the same thing that either myself or [personal profile] afteriwake has claimed.

Sorry about not running this last month; both [livejournal.com profile] aaronlisa and I had personal issues come up in RL and just were not able to run it. But we're back again!

We're going to do the same format as last round. You sign up with a claim, and I give you a prompt just for you. You can write 5 - 7 drabbles of at least 100 - 500 words each or 3 - 5 fics of 501+ words each. Post them here to the community as you answer them.

Sign-ups are going to go on for one week, so they will end July 6th. And please pimp this around. We had some participation last round but we'd love to see more!

My apologies for the sign ups being late for the month of May. This time around we will be trying something slightly different. Instead of having it that there's a set prompt and people make certain claims, for this month people will be claiming a prompt.

In other words, if you would like to participate leave a comment at this post. I will then provide you with a prompt. For the month of May you would use that prompt to write either 5 to 7 drabbles (100 to 500 words) or 3 to 5 ficlets (501+ words.) Each drabble/ficlet can focus on a different fandom, pairing, or character. At the same time, if you want to use your prompt to write in the same fandom or the same pairing or character, that's okay to.

Each participant will be given their own prompt. If you would like two prompts, please let me know when you leave me a comment.

This is a trial run, if people like doing this, then [personal profile] afteriwake and I will probably run the next couple of rounds in a similar fashion.



I'd like to remind everyone about [community profile] fv_amnesty the place to post your late fics or anwer old prompts.

It's that time of month again, however this time there's a slight twist. Round 19 will consist of two months: December 2007 and January 2008.

Since we are covering two months, participants are allowed to sign up for a total of four claims instead of the normal two. Participants can either sign up for all four claims now or they can sign up for two at this time and then two more during the first week of January when I will run a week-long sign up post.

For our prompts for Round 19, participants will be able to pick and choose any of the prompts used from any round from Round 1 to Round 18. Participants can pick and choose what prompts per fic, meaning that you can write each fic per claim based on a different prompt. Or participants can use one prompt per claim.

master list of prompts )

Participants have until December 5th to sign up for either their first two claims or their entire four claims. If you only choose two claims at this time, I will be posting another sign up form at the start of January.

Please use the following form when signing up:



In case anyone was wondering, we will revert back to one month per round for Round 20/February 2008.

Claims )

If you have any questions re: Round 19 and how it works, please do not hestitate to ask.

Don't forget that you have until 11:59PM PST November 5th to sign up for the November round. Sign ups can be found here.

This also means that you have until 11:59PM PST November 5th to post fics for October's prompts and/or for October's Amnesty round.

I am also taking suggestions for future prompts. You can leave prompt suggestions at any of the sign up/admin posts.
