Before you sign up, please remember this:
1) In order to qualify for the remix, writers must have a minimum of 3 complete fics with minimum 500 words each. These fics should not be original character-centric. Collaborations do not count towards this minimum.
2) Stories that are incomplete and are collaborations automatically don't count. So you can use your safe story on a fic that is outside those categories (like a story you finished but would rather not have remixed). You can put down any story you want... it just makes no sense to give immunity to a story that can't be remixed anyway.
3) Remixes have to be at least 1,000 words.
Finally, the sign up form!
<b>Author:</b> (please indicate if you have changed your username at any point).
<b>Preferred Groups/Pairings:</b> (a summary of what you usually write).
<b>WILL NOT Write:</b>
<b>Willing to beta/pinch hit?</b>
*In case you missed the explanation from our past few sign-ups -When you say "YES" to The Telephone Challenge, you're allowing someone else to remix a remix of your original story.
For example: YOU wrote "THIS."
AA remixed it into "THAT."
YOU are now signing up for Cycle 7, and answered "yes" to the Telephone Challenge.
BB is now allowed to remix AA's "THAT," which is a remix of your story.
If you say "NO," to the Telephone Challenge, BB will NOT be able to remix "THAT."
!!! ALSO, keep in mind, we are considering this answer as your default answer for the following cycle, even if you are not participating. So, if you've already answered the Telephone Challenge question, don't worry about it. We've got the records. You may, of course, change your mind at this time or during sign-ups for the next cycle, and you can notify us then.
As for this cycle, if you're interested in remixing a remix but the original author is not participating this cycle, please contact the mods and we will ask them for you. If they can't be contacted, it's up to your discretion whether or not to do the Telephone challenge.
You can also remix stories that have previously been remixed, so almost anything goes!
You have until midnight EST January 26th to sign-up.
We've posted the FAQs and Rules on the side for future reference.
As usual, if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Comment here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org :)
