(I'm on my phone, so I apologize in advance for any auto correct craziness. I think I caught it all, but you never know.)
 
Hey, guys~ It's May 4th, so you know what that means- fics are due tonight! There's about 13.5 hours before 11:59 EST, so if you haven't finished (or haven't started), you might want to get on that. It only has to be 500 words, so you'll be fine. We have a total of four fics so far, so we need at least one more in order to have a proper guessing round.
 
Another reminder: make sure you post to the AO3 collection and not email us your fic. Though if you use any themes you want us to know about (you can use ANY theme that's ever been used for BG), you'll want to email us to let us know about that. Info is in the sign up post and I'll link that at the end here. I'll link the collection as well.
 
Also, if there are any last minute questions/problems/whatever, PLEASE either email me (verloren1983 at hotmail) or message me via DW to ensure a more speedy response. I have a class later today, but if you happen to catch me then, I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
 
Good luck, everyone! Happy writing! :D

 Hello, fandom! We have two items of business here. First is that IDs have officially gone out (with a couple of exceptions- you should know who you are) and the AO3 collection is open to submissions. Please let us know if you find that either of these things isn't the case and we'll fix it. So if by some miracle you're already done, go ahead and submit! Make sure you check the submission guidelines before you do, though. :D

Second, it's April 12, which means you have three weeks and a day before submissions have to be in. So it's not a rush yet, but just as a friendly reminder, the clock is ticking.

Have fun~

Yes, you read that right- round 18 is here! We know, finally. Sorry we missed September, everyone! Life just kind of happened. But now we're ready to go, and after the little informal poll last May, we're bringing you some changes as well. We missed you! ♥ Read on to find out what's up for this round!

The EXTREMELY belated reveals for Round 17: Author's Choice are finally here! We are terribly sorry about this, everyone. Your mods suck, what else can we say? (And also Ver has had a lot of shit going down IRL since the beginning of May and also has no regular internet, so she couldn't poke at Aki to post as frequently as she normally would have, and she has decided to finally just do it herself. Not that that's an excuse, but you know. XD) Anyway. We had 6 submissions by 6 authors.

Congratulations to [personal profile] tuulentupa! With 3 correct out of a possible 5 (60%)! (Since she was the 6th contributor) Honorable mention goes to [personal profile] stalkerbunny with a still admirable 1 correct out of a possible 5 guesses (20%).


ID Challenge
Three people guessed the ID's and all three got them correct- they were the word "five" in different languages. Congratulations to [personal profile] qem_chibati who got it first, and also [personal profile] tuulentupa and [personal profile] phnx who got it correct after that! Good job, guys!

Theme Challenge
There was no theme this round.

For this round, there will be some kind of graphic prize that Ver will figure out later, but probably a small banner. Winners should contact Ver through PM or email with the picture they would like used for their banner(s) attached (or at least an idea of which character is their favorite or something like that). Ver will get those out as soon as she can- luckily, she doesn't need internet to use photoshop. Congrats!

Once again a huge thank you to everyone for participating. We hope you all had fun. We again apologize for the bad job we've been doing the last few rounds. We're very sorry that we suck epically. That being said, we are about due for another round, but Ver is thinking it'll be a less formal one. So keep an eye out for that soon!

As a random aside, Ver would also like to know what everyone thinks about setting up BG partially in AO3- with everything still posted here, but also set up in AO3. Which would mean that things like reveals taking two months wouldn't happen, at least there. I'm told it's a lot easier to do those sorts of things. This is an informal poll- nothing has been decided AT ALL (or... ahem... really discussed...), it's just a thought that's been rattling around in Ver's head. Let us know your thoughts about it!

Step by Step



Please leave your guesses as comments to this post in the following format:

[ID] writer's LJ/DW name

You don't need to guess for all the fics, only as many as you can figure out. You also don't need to leave all your guesses in one comment; you can comment with additional guesses. However, you can only guess one writer for each fic. In the case where you've changed your guess, the latest guess will be the one considered. You don't need to be a member of this community to guess!

All guesses will be screened to avoid unduly influencing other people with your opinions. You are free to post public speculations in your own LJ/DW but please try to avoid doing so in [community profile] blind_go itself or in individual posts in [personal profile] answer_key.

Please see this link for clarification on guessing. Some tips on how to get started on the guessing process can be found here.

Happy hunting!!

Remember, you are encouraged to constructively comment to fics - anonymously, and with your author IDs. In fact, the authors are really hoping you will!!

Don't forget to guess at the ID name theme as well! Guessing is the only way to win prizes this round, so get to it!

Please comment to this screened post...

⇒ if your name appears or does not appear on the author's list in error.
⇒ if there are any mistakes in the links to the fics, or if there is a typo or other small correction in your fic that you would like changed.
⇒ with the names of people who are not allowed to guess for your fic (e.g. betas, friends whom you've discussed it with, people whom you've verified your ID for in facilitation of your own guessing post, etc.).
⇒ with your guesses!!

Enjoy, and thank you!!

The deadline for guessing is Friday May 15th, 11:59 pm.

Apologies, I completely forgot to do any reminder posts until now. Fail. (Though in my defense, I’ve had A LOT of school/personal stuff going on, but nevermind). Anyway, this is your reminder that bg fics are due at 11:59pm EST tonight! Which means in just over 15 hours, I think, assuming I’m not counting that wrong. If you haven’t gotten your fic in, now’s the time to be working on it! Or starting it, whatever the case may be. ^_^;;;

Reminder!

Hello everyone! We know that the guessing period is supposed to end today, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we won't be able to do reveals tonight. We suck at deadlines, apparently. So that means you guys get an extension! :D The new deadline is Saturday, October 4th at 11:59 EST. That gives everyone a bit more than THREE MORE DAYS to comment and get your guesses in, if you haven't already. Which is most of you, so you're welcome. ;) Obviously, this also serves as a reminder that reveals are soon and you should make authors happy by commenting and guessing! Good luck, everyone!

Just reminding everyone that fics are due in roughly 13.5 hours- get writing and send it in if you haven't already! Remember, it only has to be 500 words! YOU CAN DO IT. (Also, other details are at the sign up post here). We'll see everyone on the other side. ;)
verloren1983: (*facepalm*)
[personal profile] verloren1983
A few things on the agenda today: First, we wanted to remind everyone that fics are due at 11:59pm EST on September 19th. That means in less than a week! The minimum word count is only 500, though, so it's probably not time to panic. Yet.

Second, ID's have (finally, we know) gone out. If you didn't get an ID, let us know and we'll send it again.

Finally, we wanted to take this opportunity to apologize profusely for our tremendous fail so far this round. We didn't forget about you guys or BG, we promise! Aki has been ill (but is getting better, not to worry!), and Ver completely underestimated how much all the IRL changes happening to her would fuck with her ability to think/post stuff. So themes never went up, and the support post never went up, and ID's took absolutely forever... ungh. We are terribly sorry. We suck. Floggings will be allowed only if forgiveness follows. ^_~ Seriously, though, this was not intentional and the only thing we can say is that we'll try to not let it happen again. *bows* Please forgive us!

(On that note, being that the word count is so short, would anyone like themes still? We can put some up if people would still like them.)

Alright, that takes care of all the items on our list. Get writing! :P
