Master List Update for 2016 J/D Ficathon

Hello everyone,

I've updated the Ficathon master list with the last few stories.  You can find it here:  2016 Master List

After Party for Jack/Daniel Ficathon

(clone of this announcement on Dreamwidth)

This announcement is a bit late, but I want to remind everyone about the After Party for complementary fanworks, to allow people who create fanworks other than fanfic to participate! All fanfic writers who sign up for the ficathon were asked whether they give permission for other artists to create related fanworks after the stories have posted. All said Yes!

The deadline for these complementary works is 9 August 2016.

To announce your complementary work for the After Party, join the J/D ficathon community on DW, and then post to the community with a link to your work. Please include the title and author of the fanfic to which your work is related (and include the link if possible). If you need help joining, or don't usually use Dreamwidth, please contact the admins so that we can announce your fic for you on DW and link to it in the AO3 collection.

Posting to This Year's "Jack/Daniel Ficathon" Collection on Archive of Our Own

Below are some basic posting instructions. If you're still uncertain about the process, AO3 has a tutorial for posting new works to collections and challenges.

The main page for this year's 2016 ficathon, Lucky XIII, can be found here.

The overall page for the umbrella collection of all the Jack/Daniel Ficathons is here.

Posting Before the Due Date
If it's before the due date, please post directly to the current year's subcollection (so that we can reveal all the works together). Go to the subcollection's page and click the button POST TO COLLECTION. This will load the Post New Work page as usual, with the collection already filled in. Don't forget to include your recipient's name in the 'Gift this work to' field!

Posting On/After the Due Date
If you're uploading the work to AO3 for the first time, you can do either of the following: (a) Click the POST TO COLLECTION button at that year's collection (as described above). (b) Click the POST NEW button on your Dashboard, and put the collection name (jd_ficathon_xiii) in the Post to Collections/Challenges field. Don't forget to include your recipient's name in the 'Gift this work to' field! (It's OK to include even if they don't have an AO3 account.)

If you're adding a work that's already posted to the archive, all you need to do is connect the existing work to the collection. To do that, go to the work's page. Right above the comment area on that page, there's a row of buttons, including Add to Collections. Click that button, in the input field start typing "jd_ficathon" -- without the quotation marks and with the underscore -- and pick the year/number you wrote the fic for from the dropdown list. If the system doesn't offer to autocomplete the collection name, type it in yourself. This year's name is jd_ficathon_xiii. (For prior year's collections names, see the Collection FAQ.)



Stories for the 2016 Jack/Daniel Ficathon will be due this Tuesday, July 12, by midnight central time USA.

In a day or so a post will go up here with reminders and instructions on how to post your story.

Let your admins know if you have any questions -- comment here or email one of us.

Can't wait!

Also don't forget about the After Party! Reminders and instructions about that coming soon as well.

IMPORTANT: Email Princessofgeeks at hotmail ASAP if you know you will not make the deadline. If your story has not posted by the deadline and you have not emailed her, the admins will assume you have dropped out and proceed accordingly. One writer has already let the admin know she will be posting a bit late, which is okay within reason.

Thank you all for participating! I know the stories will be yummy.

Jun. 6th, 2016



ADMIN POST: Assignment Emails Are Out!

We have 18 writers who signed up for the 2016 Jack/Daniel Ficathon!

You should have just received your email giving you your assignment. If you didn't receive it, let princessofgeeks know asap and she will resend.

Stories are due July 12.

(There will also be an After Party for all types of related fanworks, and all writers have given permission for such related works to be made for their stories! Hurray! If you would like to do a related work, take a look at the prompts in the comments to this post and start mulling over your ideas. After Party works can be posted through August 9 after the fics post.)

I am so excited about this year's event. So many wonderful writers, and some great and intriguing prompts!

Jack/Daniel 4 evah!

SG-1 Jack/Daniel Serious


Fic: Deeper Than Memories

Title: Deeper Than Memories
Author: Em
Summary: Navigating a relationship with Jack is difficult enough, but when Jack doesn't even remember Daniel it's almost impossible. With all the times Daniel's lost his memory, it's starting to feel like the bitter taste of his own medicine.
Word count: ~10,000
Rating: PG-13 for some language
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Written for: alobear
Prompts: action/adventure, mission fic; optional request: established relationship that the rest of the team knows about, set before Jack's promotion to running the base
Notes: Thanks to green_grrl for the as always quick and efficient beta and support.

In addition to the above prompt, this story fills the last prompt sidlj left for me—amnesia... but Jack for once is the one with amnesia. This story is dedicated to Sid. This fandom is better for having had you in it. We won't forget you.

Story Assignments Are Out

From Princess of Geeks:

Emails with your story assignments for Ficathon XII have gone out. Please email Princessofgeeks at hotmail dot com if you did not receive your assignment. Alternately, you can contact princess via messaging on Dreamwidth.

Please do let me know if you have any questions or issues of any sort regarding your assignment.

Stories are due July 26. You may post your story anywhere you like, but be sure to announce it here on that day. Please do not reveal early. Let the mods know asap if you need to drop out or if you think you will need an extension of the deadline.


Remember this year we will be hosting an After Party for any sort of related fanwork that takes a ficathon story as a jumping off point. Those works can be posted anytime between July 27 and Sept. 7. Post them anywhere and announce them on this community.

There is an Archive of Our Own collection for the fanworks from this year's ficathon and After Party. [Note from Paian: You can post your story for this year to the AO3 collection and/or to this comm and/or to the Dreamwidth comm whenever you're ready. Let us worry about the reveal so you don't have to. :-D]

We have 20 writers this year! I think this is an enormous number and it makes me very happy.

J/D 4 Evah.

Jun. 8th, 2015


Ficathon XII Signups Closed

Signups for the 2015 Jack/Daniel Ficathon are now closed.

We have 19 amazing writers signed up to participate! Hurray! Some new-to-the-ficathon names and some old and dear friends.

Also, every writer has given permission for complementary fan works to be made with their work and posted during the Ficathon After Party!

The stories will post July 26, and the After Party runs through Sept. 7. Posting for the After Party can occur in the community any time during that period (unlike the ficathon itself, which has a story reveal for the entire slate on the deadline day). We'll post reminders about the After Party as time goes on, but any artist or writer who's interested can take a look at the requested stories and starting thinking of ideas. After Party works could include (and this is not an exhaustive list) podfic, remix fic, banners, 'inspired by' fic, artwork, icons, poetry, manips, crafts -- just any type of related fanwork.

It's going to be a great year.

Jun. 6th, 2015


Reminder: Signup Deadline Tomorrow

The final day to ask for a story and offer to write one in the J/D Ficathon 2015 is Sunday, June 7.

The signup post is here, and the LJ announcement post is here.

Remember that after stories post on July 26, other fan artists are invited to choose a story and make things like podfic, remixes, art, icons, etc.!

We're really looking forward to this year's event!

After Party

This year, we are adding an After Party for complementary fanworks, to allow people who create fanworks other than fanfic to participate! All fanfic writers who sign up for the ficathon will be asked whether they give permission for other artists to create related fanworks, after the stories have posted.

Fan artists of all types are encouraged and urged to take a look at the signup comments and note which fan writers have given permission for complementary works to be posted during the After Party.

The deadline for these complementary works is 7 Sept. 2015.

Posting instructions

(copypasted from [personal profile] princessofgeeks's post at [community profile] jd_ficathon)

Our deadline for posting is in a couple of days!

This year's fic should be posted on August 14, any time after midnight the night before.

You can post the entire fic here, behind a cut, or post it anywhere you'd like and link to it here. You can also post to the Dreamwidth community.

Also, don't forget about the collection for this year's fic on Archive of Our Own. I will be posting instructions on how to use that shortly.

For this community on LiveJournal, moderated posting is turned on, so post early here if you need to.

Please keep the secret of who you're writing for until August 14. Don't post outside the comm earlier than the 14th.

I have had three writers request extensions, and am happy to do that. Just let me know ASAP. In fact, I may need an extension myself, but hopefully not.

Last, the posting format:

Subject Line: Fic: Story Title

Word Count:
Written For:

Please use MPAA ratings for consistency. Use your judgment on how your story should be rated.

Stories should be tagged by author, recipient, genre, rating, and season. Use the tags provided. If the tag you need isn't there, drop us a note and the admins will make it for you.

So, a story from a few years ago would have looked something like this:

Subject Line: Fic: Misunderstanding
Tags: author:melayneseahawk, writee:faerie_mistress, genre:action/adventure, genre:romance, rating:nc-17, season:any

Title: Misunderstanding
Author: melayneseahawk
Summary: You're a much better damsel in distress than Carter. I guess it's because you have more practice.
Word Count: 3193 words
Rating: NC-17 (graphic m/m sex)
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Written For: faerie_mistress
Prompt: Requirements: Action/ adventure, the rest of the team should be involved in the plot line to some degree; Optional Request: Higher end rating (MA15+ or higher please), angst; Restrictions: No AU/ really OOC main characters, Neither Jack or Daniel should die (although Ascension doesn't really count as dying). Also, aliens did NOT make them do it.
Notes: Many, many thanks to trelkez for the extension, and to starkravingsane, brainofck, and theemdash for the beta-reading, for without them this fic would ne'er have seen the light of day.

If you have any questions, email me at princessofgeeks at hotmail dot com.

Can't wait! :D

The 2014 Ficathon is a go!

Here is a mirror of Princess's post on Dreamwith:

Sign-ups are now closed for this year's ficathon.

We have 18 participants, a nice even number. Hurray.

I am super excited about this year and feel very ready to write. (In fact, I might even have already picked out the prompt I want for myself. Mods have their privileges, LOL. )

Assignments will probably be out a little early, because of the plans that have cropped up for me for the USA holiday weekend, so watch your email over the next couple of days.

Please let me know right away if there is any trouble with writing your prompt or if you have any questions.

And if the August deadline seems to fly right at you, just let us know your plans. If you have to post late, we can deal with that. Just don't disappear without explanation. I posted three months late once, and while I certainly don't recommend that, at least I did eventually post and that's the main thing.

Paian has made sure that all our past ficathons are accessible through the Archive of Our Own Jack/Daniel Ficathon Collection, and other writers have also been linking their own fic as they have time, which I think is a great idea.

Many thanks to the other people helping with this ficathon -- Paian, Green_Grrl, and Sid.

You should be getting your assignments shortly.

J/D 4 Evah.

Amateur Hour: The 2014 Jack/Daniel Ficathon

This is a mirror post of Princessofgeeks' J/D Ficathon sign-up post on the Dreamwidth side (here). You are welcome to sign up on this post or there! No need to sign up twice.

Sign-Ups Are Open: 10 June - 28 June 2014
Assignments Out: 3 July 2014
Stories Due: 14 August 2014

So, how does this work?
~ Comment here (that is, on DW or LJ or IJ) to sign up. Assignments will be sent out via e-mail. Stories will be due 14 August 2014. However, if you finish early, you can post and I'll leave your story in the moderation queue until the day the ficathon opens.
~ Keep your assignment secret until the deadline. We do suggest you get a beta.
~ If you have any questions about your assignment, contact Princessofgeeks (princessofgeeks at hotmail dot com) or sidlj, not the person you're writing for.
~ Stories must be at least 1000 words, but there is no upper limit.
~ Feel free to post either in the comm where you signed up, or somewhere else with a link to your story. More details about posting will be up closer to the deadline.
~ Join your preferred comm on Dreamwidth or Livejournal or Insane Journal if you are planning on posting your fic there. Sign-ups will also be accepted from non-members if you are planning on posting only at Archive or Our Own. All members have immediate posting access; posting is moderated so that the fic will all go live the same day.

Crossposting Policy
~ Please sign up once, on Livejournal or Dreamwidth or Insane Journal. It does not matter which; all entries will be mixed together, so you may wind up writing for someone on another platform.
~ Stories may be hosted on Livejournal, Dreamwidth, Archive of Our Own, or any other website. Stories may be hosted on more than one site, but please provide all links. We are planning an AO3 collection for the 2014 ficathon; details will be announced as they become available.
~ You may announce your story on either the Dreamwidth or the Livejournal or the Insane Journal ficathon community, or all.
~ Once posting has begun, a Master Post of all stories will be created and posted to Livejournal and Dreamwidth and Insane Journal, so no matter where you post, everyone will be able to see it.

Defaulting, Dropping, and Extensions:
~ If you drop out without emailing princessofgeeks at hotmail dot com, you will be banned from participation for the following year.
~ If you need more time to finish, simply let us know. One of your mods once posted a story three months late. Stuff happens. If something comes up and you can't complete the ficathon, just let us know in advance of the deadline.

Ficathon 2014

Hello! This is Sid, copying and pasting from an entry Princessofgeeks posted to the Dreamwidth side of the comm. She and I are currently your new mods. :-)

Here is a link to the DW post, so you all can read the comments over there. ETA: We're branching out to Insane Journal, too!


Melayne Seahawk, who ran this ficathon for several years, has decided that last year, which was the tenth anniversary, would be her last.


She has handed over the comm to (so far) me; that is, PoG, and sid. And green_grrl has also agreed to help -- particulary along with sid on the LJ side. (I don't have a fannish LJ any more, so that is great.)

I for one want to find a way to reach out to the fans who read and post on Archive of Our Own but who may not visit DW or LJ much.

So please comment here with your ideas, with your preferred dates, your willingness to volunteer, etc.

I am thinking that the basic format of the ficathon would remain the same -- submission of prompts, and then matching everyone with a prompt. A one-for-one fic exchange.

I also would like to get this year's event rolling as soon as humanly possible. I do not want it to run past Halloween at the absolute latest, and if I am involved next year (which I hope to be) I want to open the prompt submission period in, like, early May. I prefer summer ficathons. Early fall and the Christmas season are next to impossible for me to meet deadlines other than work. But of course I would bow to the preferences of the group.

What do you think?
