fandom, we have done the impossible

[admin] reminder of remix author reveal

Just a reminder:

Tomorrow at or after 12 noon Eastern Daylight Time, you should log into your sockpuppet and put your names on your stories, both in the headers and in the remix author tag. To be clear, when editing the remix author tag, please leave the "remix author:" in place, but substitute your name for the sockpuppet name, e.g., I would go from "remix author: ll_cool_cj" to "remix author: victoria p."

Thanks again for participating.

Remix/Redux V: Archive Open for Business

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, may I present to you:

Remix...Redux V: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

The Archive is open. 325 stories in 77 (or so) fandoms from Alias to Yami no Matsuei, and many more in between.

The best way to navigate the community is via the tag list - you can find the remix of your story by finding your name in the original author list, and you can also navigate by fandom, pairing, and character.

Read. Love. Send feedback, even though the authors will remain anonymous until next Sunday, April 29th. Speculate on who remixed whom. Thank your remixer. Have fun and thank you all for participating.

To track comments on your story, please use the "track comments" feature of LJ.

If you feel the need to reply ASAP to your feedback, please do so anonymously, or via your sockpuppet LJ. We went through a lot of work to make this anonymous, and I don't want that blown the first day.

Thanks, guys! I hope you had fun!

Thank you especially to my fellow mods, who helped shoulder some of the burden this year:

amberlynne, devildoll, girlinthetrilby, laurificus, and mousapelli.

Thanks and love to all the pinch hitters, for helping out above and beyond the call of duty. I owe you guys, and I appreciate your willingness to help out more than you can ever know. I don't think I've forgotten anyone, but if I have, let me know. I apologize profusely.

devildoll, girl_wonder, marksykins, laurificus, mousapelli, ignipes, megthelegend, eilandesq, krabapple, ranalore, oxoniensis, callmesandy, gblvr, tartanshell, likeadeuce, inksheddings, florahart, nopejr, aillychan, zooey_glass04, zelost_mind, bironic, reddwarfer, rynne, zvi_likes_tv, lls_mutant, riko, sathinks, and shayheyred.

As you can see, a number of you are getting more than one remix, because, oh frabjous day, some of the original remixers came through in the end as well. Be happy. *g* I figured nobody'd mind having *more* fic to read. *g*

And again, remember to acknowledge your remixer ASAP!

Thanks again to amberlynne for the hot banner, and to mousapelli for the icons.

Thank you to dracofiend for providing the matching algorithm, and to tripoli and lonelywalker for helping me with the data entry.

Let me know if there are any glitches or thingies not working right, either here or via email at remix [at] illuminatedtext [dot] com.

[admin] sockpuppets and icons

All the Remix sockpuppets have been added to the remix_redux community, which is currently friendslocked and moderated.

Only remix mods and remix sockpuppets will be given membership in the remix_redux, so please don't try to join.

On the morning the archive goes live, I and the other mods will change the security level of each story so it becomes visible to the public. The archive will not open until everyone has a story. Don't be the person who holds that up.

mousapelli and I made some remix icons, based on the lovely graphic amberlynne made, for your use. One has been uploaded to each sock account as needed. Some of you have already uploaded your own sockpuppet icons, which is fabulous. Feel free to use icons you've made for the purpose of Remix, but 1. please remember you are sharing the account with 9 other people, so do not delete someone else's stuff, and 2. the icon cannot be recognizable as one of the icons you use on your own LJ or associated with you in any way.

A sample Remix story post template has been posted. Please follow it when posting your story.

Three weeks until stories are due! I hope you're all having fun. If you are planning to drop out, NOW IS THE TIME TO MENTION THAT.

and they have a plan, a loaded god complex

sample fic entry: Strange Bedfellows (Rhapsody in Blue) [LA Confidential; Ed Exley/Bud White; adult]

This is the general template of how you should post your remix.

Subject line: Fic: Story Title (Remix Subtitle) [Fandom; characters or pairing; rating]

Title: Strange Bedfellows (Rhapsody in Blue)
Author: [this line should have your sockpuppet name listed, until the reveal]
Summary: He wonders again what the hell he was thinking, coming here.
Fandom: LA Confidential (movieverse)
Pairing: Ed Exley/Bud White [if your story does not have a pairing, you type: Character(s): Character 1, Character 2, as needed]
Rating: NC-17 [please use MPAA ratings for consistency. use your judgement on how your story should be rated.]
Disclaimer: Ellroy's, not mine
Original story: Strange Bedfellows by Saklani [please include a link to the original story, as well as the title and author]
Notes: [beta thanks etc. can be added in when you put your author name in after the reveal]

Collapse )


You will tag your fic as follows:

fandom: [fandom the fic is in, no abbreviations], character: [full character name] (tag for each main character of your story), pairing: [character 1/character 2 - please use the full names of each person in the pairing] (if there is more than one pairing, you tag for each), rating: [rating], original author: [name of person you've remixed], remix author: [lj sockpuppet name to be changed when author names are revealed]

if you've written a crossover, tag for each individual fandom, and also use crossover: [fandom 1/fandom 2, again, no abbreviations].

If your story does not contain a pairing, you do not need to use a pairing tag. Use only such tags as are applicable to your story.

Please set comments on your story post to "Don't Email." You should use the "Track" feature (as yourself, not your sock) to track when your story gets comments, because all email for the sockpuppets comes to the Remix gmail account, and you don't see it anyway.

After the author names are revealed on April 29, you may post your story in your own LJ and wherever else you like.

If you have any questions, please comment to this post.
