The Rules & Timeline

Everyone may submit up to three prompts, but will only have to write one story. Writing more than one story gives you brownie points from your recipient and from your friendly ficathon mods, who won't ever complain at there being more female-centric fic.

Two of your requests must be from the list of official fandoms, with no crossovers. The third request may either be a crossover, or from the fandom of your choice. Consider it your wildcard entry.

Fics must be a minimum of 1000 words. There is no maximum. Please be sure to have your fics betaread prior to posting. (Ficathon mods are not available for betareading purposes, nor are we able to find you a betareader. We will, however, put a post up for betareaders to volunteer in.)

Gen, het, and femslash (as well as background slash) is all acceptable; however, the story should still retain the theme of celebrating female characters. Please note during sign-ups that an ampersand ('&') designates a gen prompt, and a slash ('/') designates a relationship-based prompt.

You will be asked to list characters you want. Please be sure to list a reasonable number for your writer, who is allowed to include any other characters he or she wishes to write. (Also: Please, no incest prompts. That's a can of worms your mods don't particularly want to open.)

Defaults: We understand that sometimes there are problems with RL that get in the way of ficathon commitments; however, defaulting means that we have to scramble for a backup writer. If you are going to default, please do so by two weeks before the due date. That's March 17, 2007.

Defaulters will not be allowed to participate in any future femme_fic ficathons.

Posting: The community is currently set to moderated posting. When you finish your story, please post it to the comm. Stories will be released from the moderation queue as soon as all ficathon entries have been turned in. (Yes, this is our incentive for getting all stories in as soon as possible. Also, it's always felt fair that everyone gets their story simultaneously, instead of some people having to wait longer than others for their fics.)
