Two years ago, in 2010, hazyflights hosted a ficathon that celebrated women from all fandoms. The response was phenomenal, and hundreds of fics got written. I decided I wanted to host a ficathon; in particular, I wanted to revive this ficathon because it was the one that actually got me writing. So here it is . . .
Here are the rules, adapted from hazyflights:
1. Post prompts! Given the nature of this ficathon, your prompt must focus on a woman, any woman, from fandom or RPF. Format them as such: fandom, character(s) [+ pairings, romanti if any], your choice of prompt be it a lyric, a word, etc.
ETA: Prompts should be in the following format in the text of the comment: fandom(s) - character(s) or pairing(s) - prompt (like song lyrics or a situation or something brief so the author has to make up the plot of the comment fic).
2. Answer prompts! Though you do not need one to write. They're there to serve as inspiration. Post away with or without one. Fics need to posted with a line in the following format in bold at the top of your post: fandom, character(s) [+ pairings if any], "title", rating. Also more than one person can respond to the same prompt.
ETA: OR if you'd like to leave icons or graphics as fills for prompts, go right ahead! Just list the fandom and characters at the top of the post!
3. LEAVE FEEDBACK. Let the author know if you liked their fic, an angel will get its wings if you do, FACT.
4. Beware of spoilers. /sole warning.
5. This is a pimp code. Use it. The more the merrier basically.
6. If any questions arise direct them to the first comment. I'll answer them as soon as I can.
7. When leaving feedback/replying to fic please make sure you hit reply and don't post your feedback as another comment all together. It will (a) get lost in the meme and (b) the author might not even see it.
8. HAVE FUN!
I was really bored while livejournal was down over the weekend so I made a gazillion fandom-specific banners for the ficathon. If your favorite character or fandom isn't there, let me know, and I can probably whip something up pretty quick. If you'd like to make banners, that's absolutely awesome! They can say "The Awesome Ladies Ficathon 2012" or "Ladyfest 2012," whichever you think is cooler.
