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.
