Resources for finding stories!

Dates:

Nomination Period: January 22nd, Sunday to February 5th, Sunday 11:59pm - CLOSED! Tagset here!
Sign Ups: February 10th, Friday to February 19th, Sunday 11:59 pm

EDIT: Quick reminder, you have to nominate specific stories! Broad things like 'Egyptian Mythology' instead of a specific myth or 'Murder Ballads' will have to be queried and then possibly rejected. It helps if you link me the source to the story you're using too for the spreadsheet I make of sources, but that's not a requirement!

Get hyped!

Hello people (including presently enchanted animals and other magical beings)!

Welcome to the 2017 edition of Once Upon a Fic! It will be very like 2015 and 2016 but possibly even better because 3 is a magical number.

The FAQ is updated at the collection. It covers such things as what can be nominated, how requests work, how offers work, and what you are expected to write. If it doesn'’t answer your questions you can email the mod (jean @ hamsterbandit dot com) or leave a comment on a post here.

In just a few days (January 22nd) nominations will begin! That means it's time to start choosing your stories. The relevant part of the FAQ for nominations is found here!

The tag sets from 2015 and 2016 may give you some ideas about what kinds of fairy-tales, myths, legends, rhymes, fables, tall tales, and epics you would like to submit.

If you're looking for stories, try out these resources (and feel free to suggest other ones to me!) over here


Things to take note of:

- As said above, we have updated our FAQ! Found here on DW and here on AO3! Notable changes include: We've clarified phrasing and phased in the nominations faq so it is no longer a separate document.

- [personal profile] morbane is Co-Mod this year!

- The LJ mirror has been officially deprecated and will no longer be updated, beyond the sticky post at the top which will be edited with relevant information such as when nominations/sign ups are open or closed.

- This June, I, Benedict, will be running an Alternate Universe exchange at [community profile] auexchange (Alternate Universe Exchange/AUex) Keep an eye on that space!


See you on the 22nd!

In one fell swoop, the collection is revealed and closed!

There's a ton of good stories in it right now (I'm still working my way through it) and more have been added between collection open and close! So take a look. Explore. Remember to kudos! Or even comment, if the spirit moves you.

Thanks everyone for a great year! Thank you to Morbane for all your help!

See all of you next year, hopefully!

Hey, everyone! 3 hour warning! Except it's more like TEN HOUR warning because I've spent all day riding around/wrestling on bike and really need to get some sleep! There will be a two hour, one hour, and deadline warning later tonight!

You need to have your full 1000 words or more fic in for your recipient by May 15th, 11:59 PM central time - well, you have a few more hours than that due to fate.

See you tonight!

Archive goes live May 20th, so while I encourage you to have your fics complete and proper for your recipient, you will be able to edit until the archive goes live.

Treats can be posted directly to the main archive!

Reminder that when the final deadline comes, everyone who hasn't posted will be automatically defaulted and pinch hits will be sent out.

Hi! Your friendly neighbourhood mod (me) is leaving town until the 27th! I'm gonna be on a boat.

Thankfully you're not on your own!

While I'm gone, please direct all problems to [personal profile] morbane who you can contact at morbane[at]gmail[dot]com!

Good luck with your stories! Be good for Morbane!

Remember to be kind to the elderly in the forest and not to go into any houses that don't belong to you too.

Guess what! Assignments are out early!

If you're posting to your recipient, you can do so from your assignments tab in your ao3 dashboard but ALSO you can submit treats and stories for others directly from the collection page! Remember to put in your treat recipient's name if you do that. Not like I'm talking from personal experience or anything.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

You need to write at least one fandom and character your person requested!

Respect the DO NOT WANTS!

Your assignment must be at least 1000 words! Treats are not subject to this rule.

If you know you cannot do your story, default as soon as you know so I can set up a pinch hitter.

Pinch hits will be posted diretly to the community with screened comments instead of the mailing list this year.

UNLOCK YOUR LETTERS.
