 Hey everyone!

Time for our fifth check point! This isn't mandatory, but highly encouraged for both authors and artists. We're just seeing how everybody's doing, if there are any concerns we need to be worried about, etc. Comments on this post are screened, so nobody else can see your comment, so feel free to vent as much as you need to. But please let us know how you're doing with that WIP/art. Any closer to done? Even if it's only a couple of words to assure us you're alive, please check in! :)


  • Posting date claims will go up on Wednesday, June 28th. Posting dates will run from July 8th to around mid-August. Be sure to talk with your author/artist about what date is best! If you or your proxy has not claimed a date by July 2nd, one will be chosen for you at random.

  • Posting begins on July 8th! We're so close to the end, guys!!

Hey everyone!

Posting time is fast approaching! I hope you’re all doing fantastically on your fics. Even if you’ve finished and looked over your story yourself, it’s a good idea have a beta reader give it a second look before posting. Sometimes it can be hard to find a beta, so that’s what this post is for!

If you need a beta or would like to offer your beta services, please leave a comment below. I’ve even included nice little text boxes you can use as a base for your request or offer! (Please ignore the <br /> tags in the boxes... I've not been able to figure out how to get rid of them on here.)

For writers:

For betas:

Feel free to contact a writer or beta with the information they've included and try to match up! The Livejournal post can be found here if you'd like to widen your scope or crosspost.

Hi everyone!

This is the Rough Draft Check In. Unlike the other check in's, this one is mandatory. You do NOT have to turn anything into us, your assurances are enough. By this point you should be at least 80% done, though I know several people are already at the beta and editing stages! If you're not at least 80% done, please also let us know if you think you'll be able to finish by the deadline and if there's anything we can do to help you finish.

Comments are screened, so we're the only ones that will see. If you did a double check in on the last check in or have already confirmed with us through email, there’s no need to check in again. So come one, come all, come vent, come celebrate, come worry! Let's do this thing! :D

Reminder: Posting date claims will go up on Wednesday, June 28th. Be sure to talk with your author/artist about what date is best!

This is a week later than the original date of Wednesday, June 21st, bc we still have several fics that have not been claimed for art and we want them claimed before posting dates opens. Please PLEASE check out the art claims post and send over anyone you think might be interested!

Unconventional Courtship 2017

It's late, but it's back -

Welcome to 'Unconventional Courtship 2017'!

'Unconventional Courtship' is a panfandom fic fest where you write and post a 1000w+ fic based on a M&B/Harlequin plot. Fics will be posted to this community, staggered through August and September 2017, from 18th August.

How to play:

It's as simple as:

1. Sign up! All you need to do is comment on this post with the day you want to post your fic. You can tell me which summary/pairing you're going with, but you don't have to. You can also ask me to assign you a summary, if you want. (You don't need a Dreamwidth to play - just comment with OpenID, although you will need to ask me to post your fic on the com. If you are on DW, please follow the community!)

2. Choose a M&B/Harlequin summary (or two etc) - we have hundreds of suggestions here, but there are literally thousands. Our prompt generator may also help (thank you [personal profile] john_amend_all) You can write more than one fic, if you want. You can also combine prompts, if you like.

3. Replace the names (and pronouns if necessary) with the names (and pronouns) of the pairing of your choice. Any any all fandoms and pairings are welcome in this fest.

You can also replace place names and jobs as long as you keep to the spirit of the prompt. So, if you want to write Kirk/Spock, but you don't want to write a modern day AU, you could replace 'the Sahara desert' with 'a desert planet' and Kirk wouldn't need to be the boss at a law firm, he could be the boss... in the sense that he's the captain.

4. Write a fic based on your altered summary. You can take the prompt seriously or use it as an improbable basis for lols.

4.5. Pimp the fest far and wide. I'm hardly going to do this at all, so it's up to you - the players! I've re-uploaded the make-your-own banners and of course you can use any that I've already made. But please do pimp where ever you think would be appropriate.

5. Post the fic to this community on your assigned day.

You can also post to our AO3 collection, but please post to the com whatever you do, and please post to the com first.

You can see some examples of Unconventional Courtship fic by looking through the collection, or earlier in the com.

6. Profit! Fics for all! I'll post a masterlist once all the entries are in. Crossposting is encouraged.

Any questions? Leave a comment or PM me or email me at

Days for posting )

If you have questions, feel free to ask! And/or consult the FAQs from last year, which are still mostly accurate.

Please leave comments for art claims on the Livejournal post. This post is only for reference.

Fifth round of story claims are up, let’s definitely make this the last. At the time of this posting, 17 stories are still left. Stories are listed by fandom in alphabetical order and each story is tagged with the story name and a number identifying that story (for my records). These are all great stories that deserve an awesome artist. Please look into your hearts and see if you want to claim any of these. Also, TELL YOUR FRIENDS. Bribe them with kisses and pie. I've just checked with my lawyer and it's perfectly acceptable to grab your artist friends and stuff them in a sack and bring them over here*. There will be posts on the tumblr for each fic for easier sharing!

*Actually, my lawyer's words were more like "Don't do that."

To claim a story, please leave a comment below with these details:

First Choice
Title of Story & #:

Second Choice
Title of Story & #:

Willing to Take Both?


Stories are first come, first serve. I'll update this post as stories are claimed. Official posting dates begin on July 8th. Sign-up sheet goes up on June 28th for posting dates. This is a week later than the original date of June 21st, bc we still have so many fics that have not been claimed for art and we want them claimed before posting dates opens.

Authors, if something is wrong with the info for your stories, please let me know ASAP via email.
