Up for another go round?

Whew! The second half of 2009 seemed to go quickly! How is everyone - feeling plotty??

That's right, plot_wout_porn is BACK! How does the long weekend of August 13 - 20 sound?

I'm intending to run this like last year, so this is the (non-binding, for self-commitment's sake) Sign Up Post. If you'd like to sign up, please comment with the following:

Name: eg. Quinara
The sort of thing you might end up writing: eg. Hmm, I've been on a proper Hamlet kick recently, so who knows? And I have an idea for a Dollhouse fic. Buffyverse is always my standby, though, so maybe a sequel to what I did last time...


A quick review of the rules is under the cut:

  1. Fics must have some sort of plot; that's the point of this ficathon. Events must progress from beginning to end. To describe one of my own fics, a character walking into a room and catalysing a complicated reunion is not a plot. We want external action, people, not just internal.
  2. Any sex must be necessary to the plot and go beyond titillation/incentive for readers to keep reading. If it needs to be NC-17 it can be NC-17, but label it!!
  3. All fandoms and 'ships are welcome, as are crossovers. Bashing is really not appropriate in this context, though I'm never one to say no to good-natured, gentle ribbing.
  4. Completed fics must be at least 2,000 words long and WIPs must have at least 8,000 words posted to the community over the posting period.
  5. All content must be new when posted to the community (additional chapters to existing WIPs are fine, as long as the WIP as a whole abides by the other rules).
  6. All stories must be posted between 13th-20th August 2010 (inclusive) behind an LJ Cut with the following labels:
    • Title
    • Author
    • Prompt (if any)
    • Fandom
    • Pairing (if any)/Characters
    • Rating


An extra piece of clarification, because it always bears repeating: fics can absolutely have sex in them - it's an exact analogy to plot in porn-without-plots PWPs, where all plot elements serve to bring on the sex; it's just the other way round. If something happens because of your seXXors, it's fine. :)

And please mention it on your journals so other people can come and play! We have shiny banners. (Thanks again, maharet83!)

Check out this year's prompts! :)
