More on the Fanfic Roundrobin  
Hiyoz, everyone! Hope you guys are all enjoying the holidays and got lots of FMA goodies ^__^ *throws Edo cakes*

Ahem, anyway, remember the fanfic roundrobin idea I suggested about a week ago? Click if you don't remember
Well, we have 18 writers participating so far...

Oh, and first story due in 3 weeks, and each story after would be due two weeks after the prev. fanfic =D. That should be enough time...

In the order of first to last writer, along with titles as determined via the method from the original post:
lukita - Serendipity
laney_y - Occasion
darkazriel - Wager
ravenbell - Shuffle
tressock - Divorce
melts - Burrow
xkesshoux - Indispensible
ladymetaka - Kafkaesque
holly_san - Juxtapose
evilhippo - Lament
riyuen - Route
nzmongoose - Campaign
wabisuke - Marmalade
shido - Effervescent
random_prophet - Ensconce
wiccat - Pique
darkenedsakura - Succulent
hellangelss - Eventuate
arisato - Hydromancy
sekido - Fidelity
sailormac - Oration
tasha_mac - Seven
lost_zeppo - Enervate
lanerose - Respondent
celira - Serpentine
kill_me_faster - Epitaph

If you are not on the list, but want to participate, post here with a number from 1 to 25, and I'll reply to tell you your title and update the list :).

Also, what kind of story do you guys want? I was thinking of just letting the first writer determine the mood, tone, direction of the story as a whole, and then each writer work from there. But, if you want the story to take a specific route...Here's a poll:

What type of fanfic do you want?

Drama (woot! angstfest XD;;)
Pairings and stuff related to pairings...
All genres mixed in
No genre - work with what the previous writers did
PS. For the comedy/crack option, that's more referring to the fanfic as a whole being light, happy and humorous, not total crack like "omgzthenhavocxarmstrongtheend!!!!111!" ^^;;

Hmn. Well, given the chapter titles and images they convey, would crack!fic be a really good idea? I mean people running around just being plain silly might undermine the work itself.

Of course, I'm saying this mainly because I'm rather bad at situational humor and tend to fall back on dryer wit. :D;;;;; I dunno how comfortable/competant I'd be writing rampant crazy.

Ahh, I sees... ^^;; Well, I guess I wasn't really thinking about having a crack!fic for the roundrobin as one of the options, but more along the lines of it being light and humorous, since yeah, a total crack!fic would be kind of odd. Must go and specify in the post now XD;;
CphT, bitches.ladymetaka on December 28th, 2004 05:54 pm (UTC)
I can give it a shot :D might be fun.
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 28th, 2004 06:00 pm (UTC)
Yay!! Got a number from 1-25 you'd like?

Can I try it? I haven't written much fanfic yet, but hey, there's always time to try.

I'll take lucky 13.
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 29th, 2004 09:09 pm (UTC)
Ooh, of course you can try it ^__^!

You will be going after shido, and your title is "Ensconce"
Sailor Mac: Christmas by Ushitora Iconssailormac on December 28th, 2004 06:58 pm (UTC)
Um, hi, I'm new to this community and I think I'd like to give this a try. I've written a lot of fic for different fandoms in the past (nothing for this one yet, though).

As for a number, I'd say 18, 5 or 10.
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 29th, 2004 09:07 pm (UTC)
Hihi and welcome to the community!

I used number 18, and your title is "Oration", and you will be going after sekido ^___^

Hmm...I was on vacation, and thought that that post was too old to reply to. I'll just do it now. And yeah, I'd be interested in this ^^

Numbers 3, 9, or 14 would be fine. I guess I don't really care...
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 29th, 2004 09:04 pm (UTC)
Yay!! More writers = happiness.

Title = Succulent, and you would be going after wiccat (I used 14, so yeah XD;;)
a fangirltreesock on December 28th, 2004 08:14 pm (UTC)
I'd join, but it'd most likely involve characters I wouldn't be able to write.

I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 29th, 2004 09:04 pm (UTC)
Well, SV_chan suggested I do a community for this, since the list is kinda growing, so join and write anyways! XD;;
Pilukita on December 28th, 2004 09:29 pm (UTC)
I was thinking to start the fic with something light with the possibility for drama if the next author would go for it. Non-pairing unless they're already married. Anyone want a say in the timeline? I'm thinking either the 'missing' years before Ed turns fifteen, or episodes 48+ never happened. Manga vs anime? I won't go for something completely AU since that's just asking for headaches.
a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on December 28th, 2004 09:45 pm (UTC)
I don't think pairings are a good idea because undoubtedly people will disagree over them...unless something can be worked out.

As for timeline, depends on the fic. Is it supposed to resolve all in the FMA universe like a post series? Is it supposed to be a "what if this happened after the current manga chapter"? Is it a basic fic set in time when all is well and everyone is alive and before the end? Who knows.

I'm all for the drama or whatever else...I'm just not big on crack fics. Heh.

seph, you should also make a community for this project so we don't all get confoozed. =D
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 29th, 2004 09:00 pm (UTC)
Hmm...I should XD;; Good idea!
Shido Tôyushido on December 29th, 2004 04:18 am (UTC)
Hmm...Seeing as the list's so long already, I'll join in ^_^ Number 12, please :D
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 29th, 2004 09:02 pm (UTC)
Whee!! Your title is...Effervescent ^__^ and you're going after wabisuke
lost_zeppo on December 30th, 2004 07:56 am (UTC)
Hmmm...never done a round robin before, but I think I'll give it a shot. Oookay, gotta a number...21, coz my 21st was a few weeks ago. ^_^
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 30th, 2004 09:42 pm (UTC)
Hiyoz! You'll be going after tasha_mac, and your title is "Enervate" ^__^

Lorelei DiAngelokill_me_faster on December 30th, 2004 11:32 am (UTC)
Yes! I got Epitaph!

But am I ending? Or beginning? I think that was what I asked for. Oh, well, if I'm in the middle, it's okay, too.

I'll check back in a bit to see what's going on. (If I'm first, that means I've gotta get cracking.)
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 30th, 2004 09:40 pm (UTC)
Ahh, you would be ending...^__^ "Epitaph" does sound like a fun title XD;;

Unrelated, but omg, icon love~

Does it have to be a round robin? Maybe it could be a series of drabbles on various things? Since we can't seem to agree...?

Well, I guess that would defeat the purpose of a roundrobin.

For the record, I'm cool with whatever. Though I think we should steer clear of pairings for obvious reasons.
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on December 30th, 2004 09:39 pm (UTC)
Re: Topics
Yeah...maybe it'll be something like that...like a series of short stories or something, instead of a central theme. I'm making a community for it too, so we could all post all sorts of drabbles on there ^_^
