Oh, right, I was supposed to close posting, wasn't I?

( Spock surveyed the cavern, the largest chamber on Thieurrull, which in Standard was Hellguard. )
Offically, of course, today is the last day of the posting period. I know many writers, me included, have been delayed by real life, injuries, con plague (*cough, hack*), and other issues. That's totally fine.

Late tonight or tomorrow morning, I'll post a message officially closing the posting period and throwing all prompts open to anyone who's interested in writing them. We still definitely want to see your stories when they're finished -- post anything and everything here so we can all enjoy it.

Title: On Alien Seas, and Shores
Rating: PG
Warnings: None needed
Spoilers: For The Vulcan Academy Murders (TOS novel #22)
Summary: T'Mir of Vulcan sails from Italy to Ireland.
Word count: 12,155
Notes: My interpretation of Vulcans is based more on Diane Duane's novels than on Jean Lorrah's; I hope I managed to do both of them justice. Some aspects of this story draw on my experiences and on stories told to me while in Ireland in 2006, but all political opinions are my own. Also, I hope you like it.

On Alien Seas, and Shores.
The plan was to do a series of these. That's, erm, still the plan. When I have time. But for now...

Ad Astra Per Aspera
Story posting is open, and I am excited!

You may post the story to the community or post a link to the story hosted on your journal or website. If your story is long enough to require multiple entries, please post a link in the community instead of posting multiple entries to the community.

Please tag your story in the format novel: title. For example, novel: Uhura's Song or novel: The Pandora Principle. If your story is a crossover or encompasses multiple books, use a separate tag for each one, and separate your tags with commas.

Given the small size of the fest, I don't really think any other tags are necessary, but speak up if you think I'm wrong.
Just a reminder, the posting period begins soon!

You can start posting on Monday, August 10th, and posting runs through the 24th. This does not mean that we will stand over you with a stick and make you stop writing at 11:59PM on the 9th. Feel free to post at any time from the 10th-24th.

After that, we will still welcome stories. The prompts list will be thrown open to everyone, and hopefully we will get even more stories!


On another note, what do people think about tagging? I'm inclined to suggest that authors tag their stories with the name of the novel or novels they're writing about. Suggestions?
Prompt claiming is closed! Later today, I'll make sure that the prompt post lists who claimed what. Give me a yell if there are any corrections.

As a reminder, the writing period runs from now until August 9, and then posting runs from August 10-24.
Remember, prompt claiming ends Sunday. All the prompts that have been claimed thus far have the author's name(s) listed next to the prompt, so you can skim and see what's unclaimed. But remember that you can also write a prompt that someone else has already claimed -- we're just keeping track of what's what.
And we're off! We ended up with 111 prompts, which makes me go WOW and also Eeeeeee.

To claim a prompt or prompts, leave a comment specifying the number of the prompt you're claiming.

Prompts are listed by book title or short story title or series title, depending. I encourage you to look at the whole list, since some authors have slightly complicated universes (Diane Duane, I am looking at you). The last line of the prompt specified the universe. "Original" means the original canon; "Reboot" means the new movie canon; "Original or Reboot" means you can write in either canon.

Reminders: A prompt can be claimed by multiple people, but we think it would be nice if authors made an effort to choose a prompt that hasn’t been claimed by several people. We also encourage authors to limit themselves to two prompts. There is no minimum or maximum word count. Posting runs from August 10-24.

Please let us know if I've missed anything or made any mistakes, or if you have any questions.

Prompts behind the cut! )

Prompt claiming is closed!
It is late Sunday where I am and even later on Sunday for many of you. Prompt submission is closed. See you tomorrow with the list!
Don't forget, prompt submission closes tomorrow evening! I will post a list of prompts on Monday as soon as I've finished compiling them, probably in the afternoon or evening, depending on your time zone and/or global location.
Prompt submission is open!

The full details are in the Guidelines post, but as a reminder, please list your prompts in this format:

Book title, character or pairing, prompt or Book title, character or pairing, prompt (reboot).

We'll collect prompts until June 21. Ask if you have any questions!

Prompts are now closed!
