This is the Plot without Porn Ficathon - a multi-fandom ficathon to celebrate the plotty side of writing, where conflicts are debated, mysteries are solved and relationships are forged and tested. It's about things happening, and not necessarily the things that you'd expect.

What it's not about is the overdone, the static introspective, or porn.

That's not to say that sex isn't welcome. That would be silly! It just shouldn't be the main point of what's going on - something should happen because of it, rather than in spite of it.

Posting will be between the 13th-20th August 2010 (inclusive).

Sign-ups are here - not necessary to post, but it lets me know what we might be expecting, and it gives you a way to actually commit!

Prompts are here - again, it's not necessary to snag one, but sometimes they make everything a little easier, don't they?

So, now for the rules:
  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


It should really go without saying that neither plagiarism nor abusive comments will be tolerated. Otherwise, any queries or comments here, please. Just to keep everything tidy.
