[personal profile] answer_key posting in [community profile] blind_go
Hiya, Hikago fandom! It's your new mods, Ver and Aki here. You're probably surprised to see us so soon after the last round, but in honor of Touya Akira's birthday which mostly gets ignored, we have a surprise for you~ a mini-round! :D

Also, since this is our first time in our shiny new mod chairs, we'd like to say that we are incredibly honored and excited to be in this position. Please take care of us! *bows* Even though it's scary having to deal with new mods in a community, never fear- we don't plan on making a whole bunch of changes on you guys. We've both been around a long time and we love [community profile] blind_go the way that it is. We intend to keep things more or less the same, mostly just with more mini-rounds and stuff. We have IDEAS. So look forward to that. :P

That being said... Trixie and Pye, before they left, set up the beginnings of a move to DW, lovely people that they are. The one "change" that we are implementing is that we're finishing this process- [community profile] blind_go will now be primarily on DW, with posts showing up on LJ with links to the DW comm. Along that same vein, the support comm [community profile] kifu_archive has been copied to DW and all of the activities for that community will be completely on DW from here on out.

Anyway! Onto business!

⛄ Winter!... Anything and everything related to winter/snow/ice/etc. is fair game!

⛄ This is a mini round... in other words, short fic! Normally, mini-rounds have a much shorter turnaround time than this, but we figured between NaNo and Yuletide and various other holiday challenges this time of year, we'd give you guys extra time. Because every once in a while, we're nice people. XD

⛄ All fics MUST focus or include the theme Winter in some fashion or another.

⛄ All fics will be due by December 13th, at 11:59 pm EST. Anything submitted after this time will not be posted. Fics not received by the deadline cannot be added in afterward because this is a blind challenge, so the late added fic and author would obviously be paired together. Thank you for your understanding.

⛄ Fics will be posted to [personal profile] answer_key on Akira's birthday, December 14th, as soon as possible.

⛄ You must sign up officially to participate. Sign up to this post with your:

DW/LJ username (or whatever you'd like us to call you):


Writing archive: (can be a link to LJ memories, a fic LJ or a separate site)

⛄ Sign ups will close November 20th.

⛄ A unique ID will be sent to everyone who signs up shortly after sign-ups close.

⛄ Email all fic to be submitted to

⛄ Fics should be attached in .txt format (plain text tutorial)

⛄ In the subject line of the email, please include:

- Writer's user ID

- Title

⛄ In the body of the email, please include:

- Title:

- ID(s):

- Word count:

- Themes used: Only if themes are used

⛄ Multiple fics can be submitted in one email, or in several, whichever works for you

⛄ Collaborations are allowed; please be sure to include the user ID of both authors in the email along with the Title and Word Count

⛄ Fics should include all HTML tags for formatting; the mods will make a cursory check of all fics during posting, but will not be able to format your fic during posting

⛄ All fics must be for the Hikaru no Go fandom (Crossovers and AUs are allowed as long as the writing features Hikaru no Go characters)

⛄ The word count for this round is less than 1,500 words! (Remember, we said that we're nice people only every once in a while. XD) Any singular fic more than 1,500 words will not be posted. That being said, if a writer has a fic over the word limit and it can be split into multiple parts/chapters that make sense, feel free to do so as long as the total number of fics allowed isn't exceeded.

⛄ Writers can submit up to five fics. If you collaborate with someone, that fic will count as one for each person involved.

⛄ All fics must be focused on or include the overall theme of Winter!

⛄ There will be optional themes provided again this round

⛄ Writers can choose to use a theme or not

⛄ Writers who chose to use theme(s) will be eligible for a theme prize, most likely a graphic of some kind

⛄ More details are available in the Theme Post here!

⛄ Once the posting of the fics is done, a list of participating authors will be posted, and guesses as to who wrote what will be accepted in a screened post

⛄ The Guessing period will be open for one week, until December 21st, 11:59pm EST, and All Will Be Revealed on December 22nd, as early as we can

⛄ Until the guessing period is over, authors should not reveal themselves, but are welcome to leave hints or accept guesses of their own

⛄ If fewer than five authors submit fics, then the Guessing Period will be omitted, and fics will be posted with the author's identified

Questions? Post them here, send a PM (Ver or Akichan), or email (Ver or Akichan)! Don't forget that [community profile] kifu_archive is around for flailing and support, and the support thread is already up, because Ver is awesome like that. :D

Thank you!! And happy ficcing!!!

The theme options will go up either tonight or tomorrow, so maybe those will trigger something? Good luck!

Yeah, we decided that since we're new to the process, getting sign-ups would be easiest, even for just a mini. We're excited that you're excited! :D

I don't have time this holiday season (trying to pass the darned exam--I'm so going to spam as soon as I get out of school and settled into New Job), but I requested some AO3 codes for the war effort! ^_^ I'm afraid people need to comment to request one, since I don't have them yet.
