As of now, there are still some people who have written stories who have no stories for them in the archive. I'm posting details for their prompts. If you have any of these people, turn in your stories ASAP. If you can write anything for these people, it would bring us that much closer to the archive opening. Request 1 by betony12th Century CE RPFAny CharacterSummaryAnything about any of these women would be amazing:D. There's LiangHongyu, basically a real life version of Disney's Mulan (brilliantstrategist and general in the Chinese army, winner of battles throughunconventional methods, national heroine in her own right, married toa fellow general who she fought alongside). Or Tamar of Georgia, Queenregnant during Georgia's Golden Age, strengthening it politically andculturally.Rusudan, her aunt, married to two sultans before returning back toGeorgia; she was apparently a keen scholar, as she was the patron andtutor of Tamar's second husband David Soslan, and one of Tamar's mostimportant advisors.Nest ferch Rhys, the Welsh Helen of Troy, abducted against her willbut nonetheless iron-willed enough to first smuggle her husband out tosafety and then to negotiate her children's return to their father,before ultimately being rescued. Not to mention her sister-in-law,Gwenllian ferch Gruffydd, who organized Robin Hood-like raids againstEnglish colonizers of Wales and eventually led her troops into battle.More babble and possible ideas can be found in my letter.Letter URL http://betony.dreamwidth.org/4493.htmlRequest 2 by betonyGyeongseong Scandal | Capital ScandalAny CharacterSummaryI love all these characters! (And more, so um, if you feel inspired towrite about Sachiko, or Yeo Kyung's mom, or a sympathetic look atWan's stepmother, I will absolutely not mind at all!) Yeo Kyung, withher earnest belief in Patriotism! and Morals! is a particularfavorite, as earnest adorable idealists is a character trope I'vealways loved, but also I love her mentoring of Yeong Rang, and howshe, in turn, is mentored by Song Joo.Cha Song Joo is obviously awesome, seeing as how she's (appropriately)everyone's favorite, so if you want to write more backstory about her,particularly as it relates to her relationship with both Yeo Kyung andher fellow gisaengs, go ahead, by all means.And Yeong Rang, for that matter--what happens to her after the eventsof the series? How much does she ever find out about what happened?Also, I'd be interested in something about Miyuki, and her perspectiveon things, was something I found really interesting--her introduction,as a Japanese character who nonetheless is more sympathetic andreasonable than we'd seen so far--and how she approaches the events ofthe drama would be very neat.More babble and possible ideas can be found in my letter.Letter URL http://betony.dreamwidth.org/4493.htmlRequest 3 by betonyMuch Ado About Nothing - ShakespeareAny CharacterSummaryOh, I know everyone focuses on the Beatrice/Benedick (and they are myShakespeare OTP as well, so if you want to include them, YES PLEASE)but I'd love something about these four women. They're close, and onecan assume they've all lived together for years if not all theirlives, but they're so different. What are their relationships andtheir loyalties like? They're all clearly upset when Hero is slanderedat the wedding, but at the same time, it's not all sweetness andlight; I've read at least one critical study that hints that theothers' criticisms of Beatrice during the gulling scene are due toresentment of her cleverness and popularity (which I'm not sure Ientirely buy, but it adds an interesting dimension to theirrelationship). Ursula just hangs out in the background and doesn'thave much character development, so expanding on that would also besomething that I'd really like to see! Margaret has no qualms dressingup as Hero or flirting with Benedick later, but none of the othersseem to mind, which says interesting things about her friendship withthe others and what role social class plays in it as well. So to sumup; any backstory of their lives and relationships that we don't seewould be great!Or, I mean, run with a wacky AU, like the cheesy fantasy one whereHero is a Hero (shining armor and all), Beatrice is the crankyenchantress, Ursula is the angst were...bear, I guess, if we're goingwith thematic names, and Margaret the cheerfully amoral thief everyquest fantasy must have.(Also, I am....not the biggest fan of Claudio. I'd prefer that Hero beindeed innocent of any betrayal of him, but uh, if you want toconveniently write him out or or have him exit pursued bya...bear?...I would not mind. At all.)Letter URL http://betony.dreamwidth.org/4493.htmlRequest 4 by betonyPerilous Gard - Elizabeth Marie PopeKate SuttonAlicia SuttonKate one of my most beloved heroines for how very atypical sheis—basically, she gets everything she ever wanted by being surly andpractical and plain-spoken, and her character arc over the novel isone of my favorites ever, but I’ve had this bizarre fondness forAlicia that I’ve never been able to explain, so anything about Kateand Alicia's troubled but loving relationship would be great. Or, thecomedy fic where Alicia attempts to help Christopher plan to woo Kate(because I can't help but imagine Alicia being horrified at allChristopher's initial ideas of courtship.) In particular, I've alwayswanted to see an AU where Alicia replaces or accompanies Kate on herexile and also stumbles into the world of the fairies. Thepossibilities are endless: Alicia finding another way to freeeveryone? Alicia charming the Fairy Folk, or being frustrated whenthey don't respond to her? Alicia/Lord Geoffrey? Alicia/one of theFairy Folk? Alicia/her own previously-unknown awesomeness? (That said,Kate/Christopher is a childhood OTP, so if Alicia is replacing Kate,I'd prefer Kate and Christopher not be split up.)Request 5 by betonyThe Squire's Tales - Gerald MorrisLynetLorieEileenI love this series (and I've squeed about it in previous letters, sodefinitely check those out if interested!). Lynet and her practicalityand steadfast unromantic nature is a delight, as is her banter withGary, so anything that bridges the gap between SD&D and Lioness andher Knight would be amazing. Cameos from Lyonesse, or Morgan, or fluffwith Gaheris, would also be fantastic!Lorie, on the other hand, is still a cipher to me. She has a fewcameos, and is clearly Ragnelle, but whereas Dame Ragnelle in theballad is enchanted, we never really find out what Lorie's deal waswith the loathly lady thing. Moreover, she's rude and brash in hervery first appearance but then settles down into Proper Lady mode; butwhich is her real self? (And is she secretly much snarkier than sheappears?) I would love to read anything that delved into her and hermotivations (or at least what she was doing behind the scenes inAvalon all those years.)With regards to Eileen, I'd love to hear about another adventure thatshe had with Gawain and Terence (we might never hear about her goingquesting in the books, but I refuse to believe she just sat quietly atCamelot all those years.) Otherwise, anything about how she managed tokeep a secret marriage under wraps for sixteen years would also besomething to explore.Otherwise, anything that kept the general feel and delightfulness ofthese books would be wonderful.Request 1 by liliaethIn the Flesh (TV)Jemima WalkerAmy DyerJanet MacySue WalkerShirley WilsonSummaryI love all the characters on this show, and all the potential storylines.Whether it's the mothers dealing with their children dying or comingback from the dead, whether it's any of them living through the zombieapocalypse and then finding out that there's a cure.Or just them dealing with life after the three aired eps.Letter URL http://liliaeth.livejournal.com/464915.htmlRequest 2 by liliaethWarm Bodies - All Media TypesJulie GrigioNora GreeneSummaryI'm especially interested in what happens to the characters after themovie (or the book) is overLetter URL http://liliaeth.livejournal.com/464915.htmlRequest 3 by liliaethSupernaturalEmma (Supernatural)Nancy FitzgeraldLinda TranNaomi (Supernatural)Claire NovakCassie RobinsonMissouri MoseleyTessa (Supernatural)Jody MillsTamara (Supernatural)Summaryoutside pov, different perspectives, characters actually surviving...Letter URL http://liliaeth.livejournal.com/464915.htmlRequest 4 by liliaethGrimm (TV)Juliette SilvertonMarie KesslerKelly BurkhardtSummaryI love anything to do with the Grimm mythos, or the character's senseof purpose in the storyLetter URL http://www.livejournal.com/editjournal.bml?journal=liliaeth&itemid=464915Request 5 by liliaethTeen Wolf (TV)Kira YukimuraErica Reyes (Teen Wolf)Female char wise I'm easy, but I have to request two things, one myfave char on the show is Scott McCall, without a doubt. So please nobashing him. Two, I'm not a fan of Stiles, and Sterek is a NOTP, soplease no reference to it.Letter URL http://liliaeth.livejournal.com/464915.htmlequest 1 by LittleRavenRomeo x Juliet Cordelia (Romeo x Juliet) Lady Ariel (Romeo x Juliet) Juliet Fiammatta Arst De Capulet Hermione (Romeo x Juliet) Emilia (Romeo x Juliet)Summary I'm particularly keen on their relationships with each other and the city. How their journeys are affected by them on and off-screen. More detail will be in the letter.Letter URL http://tigerlily.dreamwidth.org/32497.htmlRequest 2 by LittleRavenOnce Upon a Time (TV) Widow Lucas | Granny Cinderella | Ashley Boyd Mulan (Once Upon a Time) Milah (Once Upon a Time) Jack (Once Upon a Time)Summary More detail to come in the letter, but: - I'm curious about Granny and her postwerewolf life, before and after Red/Ruby. In Storybrooke, how much of a figure is she, especially after the curse was broken? - What is Mulan's OUAT backstory, and why was she traveling and having adventures and not in the military or at home or in her land's court? - Milah's pov to fill-in canon. Also, that Milah-is-Captain-Hook AU I ran into on Tumblr. Make up your own reason for it or go with the same motivation of the canon Hook, with the bonus of her wanting to find her son as well. I personally would still ship this version of Hook with Emma by the way, but I'm not in an exclusive relationship with that idea! Especially because I get feeling the taboo when it could be seen as pseudo-incestuous. - Jack. What is her life as a rogue James Bond? - Cinderella | Ashley Boyd. What was it like trying to make it work in Storybrooke, where after Emma's interference she was getting her happy ending well before the curse was actually broken? It's interesting that it seems she got a happier ending there than in the Enchanted Forest. How was she in that time between the loss of Thomas and when the curse hit? There is canon het--and a little femslash--in some of these, but I would welcome more femslash! Or gen. Or gen that includes either or both of those.Letter URL http://tigerlily.dreamwidth.org/32497.htmlRequest 3 by LittleRavenSpellsong Cycle - L.E. Modesitt Jr. Anna (Spellsong Cycle) Veria Clayre Lady Essan Secca (Spellsong Cycle)Summary I'm curious about filling in what the books don't cover, but more detail will be in the letter. Much of it is on their relationships with each other, their ideas of each other and themselves.Letter URL http://tigerlily.dreamwidth.org/32497.html Request 4 by LittleRavenXena: Warrior Princess Lao Ma Cyane (III) Amarice AkemiSummary I would love fill-ins for how Lao Ma and Cyane (this is the one Xena met before she reformed, according to Wikipedia) ruled, and how Amarice lived her identity as an Amazon. How Akemi accepted her mission of vengeance and dealt with the fallout. AUs are good, especially in the case of Amarice. I ship all of them with Xena, but gen/other pairings are great too! More detail to come in the letter.Letter URL http://tigerlily.dreamwidth.org/32497.htmlRequest 1 by prozacparkPretty Little Liars/Twin Peaks Crossover Spencer Hastings (Crossover) Audrey Horne (Twin Peaks) Alison DiLaurentis (PLL) Laura Palmer (Twin Peaks) Emily Fields (Crossover)Summary I love Audrey and Spencer and their vintage fashion sense, and their spying ways. I would love something with an awesome team-up between the two (femslash would be make me doubly happy). Alternatively, I love the shared themes of PLL and TP and their differences, both. I love that PLL is women-positive in a way that TP never could be with its focus on discovering the murder of a woman through the male gaze. I would love a glimpse of PLL set within the moody, creepy TP world and the girls banding together to fight a different kind of evil. Or what would TP be like if the girls there had the kind of bonds that the PLL girls have? More details in the letter.Letter URL http://prozacpark.livejournal.com/130945.html Request 2 by prozacparkDragon Age - All Media Types Summary All the fandom hatred towards Isolde has made me a huge fan of hers, and what I really want out of this is a story that keeps the more questionable aspects of her character while still giving her a voice and a point of view. Or! A gothic AU where Isolde saves the castle from the demons. I love Warden!Bethany to a ridiculously degree and am fascinated by all the changes her character goes through under this arc. I love that she learns to question things she took for granted, and love the strength of character that she develops. I just want more Warden!Bethany, especially in the context of the new life she's developed colliding with her old one. The visits from Warden!Bethany are some of my favorite parts of my DAII playthroughs. Sophia Dryden as a human fascinates me and Sophia as a creepy possessed entity scares me, and I really, really find the intersection of these two intriguing. Tell me about Sophia before the war, after the war, or Sophia trying to cling to her humanity as the thing that came to wear her face slowly took over. More details on all of these in my letter.Letter URL http://prozacpark.livejournal.com/130945.htmlRequest 3 by prozacparkPretty Little Liars Alison DiLaurentisSummary I am endlessly fascinated by Alison and her tendency to perform various versions of herself. I am not at all there for an apologist view of Alison, though I would love one that's three-dimensional. I tend to think that Alison does care about the liars, but she just loves herself SO MUCH MORE that everyone else kind of gets sidelined as Alison creates the best version of her story for herself. I do buy the vulnerability that the current canon shows up with Alison, but I also think that that just makes her more dangerous (to the liars, and in general), because everything she learned for fun is now being used for survival, and every act and every lie is so much more vital now. I would love an Alison character piece. More details in my letter.Letter URL http://prozacpark.livejournal.com/130945.htmlWe'll go live as soon as the first three people on that list have stories, or at midnight, whichever comes first.
Midnight in what time zone?
Central Standard Timezone in US, so in about four hours.
Okay, thanks. (For the record, my story is done and posted! It's just a matter of how many last-minute edits I can and want to get in.)
How does one submit an unassigned 'treat'? Just through the submit to collection button, then adding the requester's name to 'gift this work to'? Should I be sure to clearly label it wasn't my assignment and how, notes/tag? Can it be over 1k for an unassigned story? And this can be submitted before the collection opens?Sorry if the answers should be clear, but I couldn't find them in the FAQ when I looked. ^^; Just want to be sure I don't step on any toes. I haven't participated in this kind of exchange before.
If you're adding to the number of stories in the collection, you get to ask all the questions in the world! ;)And yes, you're correct. Just upload the story from the collection page (be sure you're uploading it to Rarewomen 2014 Collection), and add the recipient where it says "gift to." Treats can be any length, and can be submitted before or after the collection opens. Although, before is preferable. ;)
People sometimes tag a treat as "treat."/notamodAlso, yay treats. :)
