Due to lack of participants, I'm cancelling the first round of exchanges. Instead, I'm going to try to host a fest. Everyone can write any fanfic they want, as long as it is based on a canon set in the 19th c.

1) This is the sign up post. Sign-ups will last from now until the end of April. To sign up, all you have to do is comment with your name, the fandom you *think* you will be writing for, and whatever you want to say about what your story is about. If you decide to change fandom or write a different story, that's a-ok. If you don't know what you want to write yet, that's okay too. Putting down your name just means you're making the commitment to finish a fic.

2) Why should I sign up? Signing up just means you're planning to finish a fic by a certain day. You'll get reminders, and at the end, hopefully we'll have a tiny explosion of cool fanfic. If you don't sign up, you can still write for the fest, but it would be nice to know how many people are really interested.

3) For the fanfic, these are the rules:
-Modernizations are okay, as long as they are based on canon set in the 19th c.
-Any length of fanfic is okay, though I encourage over 500 words.
-If you're unsure whether the fandom you're writing for qualifies, just ask.

4) Fics are due August 1. Extensions will be granted, and if you have to drop out, you'll still be able to participate in the next round. I do want there to actually be some fics as a result of this, so let's try to hit the deadline, but if you can't--well, you can't!

5) A call for prompts will be posted directly after this. There, you can post any ideas you have for a fanfic, or anything you would like to see. There will be no prompt "claiming"--anyone can write anything from the lists of prompts, or use whatever ideas are in the prompts to make their own prompt. You do not have to choose something from the prompts post in order to sign up for the fest; you can write anything you want, as long as it's based on a canon set in the 19th c.

The prompts post is merely to get the juices flowing. People can continue to add prompts even after sign-ups are over.

Here is the format for the sign up. Everything but your name is optional. Commenting with your name means you'll at least try to have something written by August 1.

<b>Fandom I'm going to write for</b> (optional, and subject to change)
<b>Idea for the story I'm going to write:</b> (optional, and subject to change)

Here you can post any ideas for fics based on 19th c. canon. You can request stuff, say what you think would be cool, offer stuff up for grabs, etc.

You also don't have to post a specific prompt. You can post a canon you would like to see someone write fanfic for, or an idea you would like to see explored. For example, "Someone please write a Daniel Deronda fanfic!" or "I'd like to see a fic that examines class issues in the Victorian era!" or "Someone write a fic set in 19th c. China; I don't care what canon, for the love of God!" etc.

Please remember that no one is required to write any of these prompts; you are not making a request that will be filled. Please also remember that multiple people can use one prompt. Once it's posted here, you can't claim a prompt, even if it was initially your prompt to begin with. Anyone can use it to write their fic.

Ready, set, go!
