Dark Angel for Remix

I imagine a lot of the members of this community already know that the multi-fandom Remix Redux is gearing up for its ninth year. What I'd love to see is enough Dark Angel writers signing up that we can get the fandom on the qualifying fandoms list. To express interest, and to see what it takes to qualify for offering a particular fandom to be remixed, see this post at the remixers_lounge.

[admin] Broken Toys master list

Okay, guys, here is the master list of stories. As of right now (2:15 pm ET on 1/3/10), it looks like everyone who turned in a story has received a story, so unless any of the janey-come-latelies* posts in the next day or so, I am not going to worry about lining up pinch hitters for them.

Broken Toys Master List of Stories

That was fun! We'll have to do it again sometime. *g*

Thanks for playing.

*Merriam-Webster lists this as a possible plural, and it sounded better to my ear in this context than janies-come-lately.

Author: templemarker
Summary: She was feelin' me so hard half the club turned to watch, and the other half were lookin' away 'cause they jealous.
Rating: R

Rating: Adult
Recipient: some_stars

Title: Figure Out This Thing
Author: Rana Eros
Recipient: Clare (clare328)
Rating: Inexplicit
Pairing: Max/Alec
Word Count: App. 1800
Summary: "You would stand at the end, the beginning of something good."
Author's Notes: This is not the first or even second story I set out to write, but the first grew into a monster and the second wouldn't gel. Then a friend reminded me of the existence of the song "Maybe Mexico," by Russell Wolff, and this story kind of wrote itself. Sadly, it wouldn't go porny places, but I hope the skinny dipping reference makes up for that. Well, and the cars. Title and summary from "Maybe Mexico," speed beta by the mighty Eliza.

Figure Out This ThingCollapse )

All the Wonder That Would Be (Max/Alec)

Title: All the Wonder That Would Be
Author: obsessivemuch
Summary: Temporarily taking care of an abandoned baby has implications for Max and Alec, both political and personal.
Rating: G
Recipient: callmesandy
Warnings: None
Notes: Title from "When I dipt into the future far as human eye could see / Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be" – Locksley Hall by Alfred, Lord Tennyson - thanks to both callmesandy and musesfool for the prompt and the challenge.

All the Wonder That Would BeCollapse )
Title: The Trials of a Hacker
Fandom: Dark Angel/Veronica Mars
Pairing: Original Cindy/Cindy Mackenzie
Rating: Worksafe
Recipient: templemaker
Summary: It's come time for Mac to give up her cushy desk job, and she's not sure she can do it.

The Trials of a HackerCollapse )
Title: And her mouth on a valentine
For: minim_calibre
Author: callmesandy
Pairing: Original Cindy/Sam
Rating: mild swearing
Warnings: none
Notes: Thanks to templemarker for awesome beta, all mistakes mine. No profit garnered, etc. Title from Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Summary:"Original Cindy ain't her and there is no trouble around here. Reconnoiter, reconnect, renew with people and then head home in five months. That's the mission."

Title: Donuts
Author: clare328
Summary: The decision whether or not to head back to Seattle is made by a 300 pound security guard who thinks that donuts are preferable to doing his job.
Rating: M, for language.
Recipient: for evenasiwander
Warnings: None.
Notes: from the prompt - Biggs just being cool. Or Whatever
I tried to include Max and Alec on a run, witty banter, but unfortunately I struggle with dialogue full stop, let alone witty dialogue, so hopefully Biggs here is cool enough to make up for that. This is how he always is in my head.
Un Beta'd, and though there are no spelling/grammar issues, there are some serious structural ones, that are annoying me, but that I don't have time to fix if I want to get this in on time. That and I'm not sure how to fix them just yet. So feedback would be really appreciated.

recipient: obsessivemuch
pairing: Max/Alec

Thanks to amberlynne for hand-holding.

Feedback is always welcome.


Admin: Signups Open

Broken Toys: A Dark Angel gift ficathon.

This is a fic exchange, which means that everyone who signs up gets to write a story, and have a story written for them, based on one of four (or five) requested scenarios you'll list when you sign up.

All stories will, obviously, be based on the show and feature the characters from Dark Angel. Slash, het, and gen are all welcome, and with your optional fifth request, you may ask for a crossover, though there's no guarantee you'll get it.

We all have personal pairing preferences (including no pairing, for some folks) so to make things a little easier on everyone, one of your requests MUST be gen - no pairing involved. It can be mission fic or a character study or slice of life fic or whatever, but just so there's no "I got someone who requested four different White/Joshua scenarios and I can't write that!" situations (not that I think that would happen), one request must be gen.

To reiterate: You must make four requests, of which one MUST be GEN.

You may make a fifth, optional request, if you'd like a crossover (obviously Dark Angel must be one of the sources involved), or if you'd like to give your writer more flexibility.

Please keep your requests relatively open and flexible (i.e., don't write the story for the author), and know that everything you requested may not make it into the story.

In writing your story, you do not need to include all of the requested things – you only need to use one of them. If you'd like to do more, that's fine, but it's not required.

You'll be matched randomly, with the "ten things I don't want/won't write" part taken into account (i.e., if you won't write White/Joshua, you'll get something that has other options *g*). While stories won't be posted anonymously - you'll all post your stories here in jamponygifts - please keep your recipient in the dark while you write. It's more fun that way.

Mark your calendars
Sign-ups open today, November 7, 2009 and will close Wednesday, November 11, 2009.

You’ll receive your assignment no later than Saturday, November 14, 2009.

Stories will be due on Saturday, January 2, 2010.

Please do not post your story anywhere else for a week, i.e., until January 9 (though feel free to link to it).

4. Alec and Original Cindy hang out and bond (i.e., my gen request)
5. Optional crossover request: John Winchester discovers his sons' DNA has been harvested for cloning and is not okay with that; how does he take Manticore down? (Maybe he served in Vietnam with Lydecker?) OR optional fifth story request: Zack returns and tries to fit into life in Terminal City

2. You'll receive your assignment sometime on (or before) Saturday, November 14. It's a secret, so please don't tell or let your recipient or their friends know who you received.

3. Join jamponygifts so you can post your story. It's also probably a good idea to friend the community while the ficathon is going on, so you'll know if there are any announcements.

4. Write a story of 1000 words or more by Saturday, January 2.

5. On Saturday, January 2, post your story to jamponygifts. Please use the following headers:

Warnings: (if your story does not need a warning, say none. If you choose not to warn, say choose not to warn; if you need to grey out your warning, use the code in this post)

6. In addition to using this post to sign up, we'll also answer questions here.

If you are going to drop out, please let us know as far in advance as possible, so that we can find a pinch hitter, so everybody gets a story.

If you have any questions, please comment to this post.

Signups will close Wednesday, November 11
