Thank you to the people who've already voted in the poll regarding the next ficathon but I would like to hear some more opinions before I decide! If you haven't voted yet please do so!

Also, feel free to pimp the poll. :)

Sorry for the unexpected absence I've been having computer issues so I'm behind with all my comms. But now it's time to get back on track.

We didn't have any entries for the fourth ficathon, and since that was with the unexpected hiatus too I've decided to close that challenge rather than extend it and move on to the next one.

For the next ficathon I had the idea of doing a kind of secret santa exchange (but up to New Years) but first I wanted to find out what people would prefer so if you're interested in participating please vote in the poll!

If lots of people are interested in having it as an exchange, I'm also open to widening it to become a general robin/marian gift exchange type thing to include more than just fics, but again it's up to all of you so please vote.

Poll #1295295 Ficathon Five

For Ficathon Five I'd like to...

have a fic exchange (like #1)!
have a regular ficathon challenge (like #2 & 3).

If you voted for an 'exchange'; I also think we should...

keep it only fics (duhs).
let it include fanarts, fanvids, etc

The current ficathon, ficathon four: picture prompts ends on Monday 27th October but right now we have no entries! Will we be getting any by then?

This poll is closed.

ficathon four

I will definitely be entering by the deadline on Monday (27th)
I definitely want to enter, but I'll only be able to if there is an extension
I might enter.
Eh, I'm not very inspired. I'm waiting for the next challenge.

This is just a reminder about the current ficathon! The deadline is October 27th and we don't have any fics yet. :( The challenge post is here. I hope some of you are planning on entering! (Of course if anyone needs a slight extension just let me know.)

I hope to see some great Robin/Marian fics from soon. :)

Thank you very much to the people who voted. :) Now it's time to announce the winners...

The winnersCollapse )

Don't forget about Ficathon Four: Music Prompts! You can find the full details at this post.

Please don't forget to vote in Ficathon Three! I would like to post the winners soon since voting has been open a while, but we still only have 12 votes! We have lots more members than that, so please vote! Thank you. :)


It's (finally) time for the fourth ficathon... *g*

This time you get to choose your own prompts...as long as they are music-based!


1. The idea of this challenge is to use music to inspire your fic. You can choose any song that you somehow relate to Robin and Marian, and you can even use more than one song if you want.

2. The songs can be used in any way you like. Perhaps you want to write a songfic, or maybe a ficmix - or maybe you've heard one lyric that really relates to Robin and Marian and want to write a fic about that. It's all good! :)

3. You do not need to sign-up to take part in this ficathon. (As such, songs will not be assigned for you to use.)

Music SamplesCollapse )

General Rules:
1. It's fine to include other characters/couples in your fic as long as Robin/Marian is the focus. Writing a fic that is more focused on either of them as an individual character is also fine, but the Robin/Marian relationship must be involved in the fic somehow.

2. You are allowed to write more than one fic but only one can be put up for voting. (I will contact you before the voting goes up to find out which you want it to be.)

3. The length of your fics should be a minimum of 600 words. Your fic can be as long as you want, even more than one chapter if the prompt has particularly inspired you, but it should be at least 600 words. If you write a multi-chapter fic make sure all chapters are completed by the deadline.

4. The deadline for fics is Monday 27th October. Please have your fics submitted by then to be eligible for voting!

...and that's it! Don't forget to check the rules/faq post but if you have any other queries just leave a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Also, as I've already said, we're not having sign-ups for this ficathon but if those of you who are thinking about participating could leave a comment letting me know that would be great. Just so I can have a rough idea of how many people are interested! :)

Thank you - and happy writing!

The third ficathon is now closed. Thank you very much to everyone who entered! :D We have some lovely fics to vote on.

The categories for voting are: Best Use of Prompt, Best Fluff, Best Angst, Best Characterization and Favourite Overall. You have to vote for one fic in each category.

Voting Rules:
+ Don't vote for yourself.
+ Voting is open to everyone and you are welcome to tell people outside of the community to come vote (I'd be happy if you did - the more votes we get the better!) but please don't try to solicit votes from anyone.
+ Make sure you vote in each category. Try to spread the love and not vote for the same fic the whole way through.
+ As different people used different prompts when voting in the Best Use of Prompt category you should consider the specific prompts the author used.
