Remember to Sign Up... and Also: Discussing the Issue of Prompts...

Hello everyone! =]

It's VERY, VERY IMPORTANT that you read this post if you plan on participating in this year's Rymon Fest.

In case you didn't catch the Sign-Up post that was posted on this comm a few days ago, Sign-Ups have started for the 2009 Rymon Fest!

Click here to go to the sign-up post.

We ask that all people who plan on participating in this year's Rymon Fest to please comment on the above post so that way we can put your name on the List of Participants.

So far we only have 5 people, which isn't very many at all =/ (I decided not to assume from the poll who was going to participate and who wasn't, especially since some people are still undecided and also things might have changed) So please, sign up and/or spread the word!

Next order of business: Prompts.

While most of those who voted in the poll felt that we still had a lot of good prompts left over from last year, and that we should reuse them, Jordan and I are a bit unsure as to how this is going to work...

The problem is that we want to have room for new prompts too. But we don't want to have an overwhelming amount of prompts, so much so that they greatly outnumber the participants.

So we have a few different options...

1.) We could completely start fresh and allow only new prompts, unless we don't get enough new prompts in which case we'll add back the old ones.

2.) We could vote (in a poll? in comments?) on the prompts we'd like to keep/see written from last year.

3.) We could use only the older prompts... in which case the people who voted for completely new prompts this year would be screwed...

4.) We could open up prompt claim for last year's prompts until a certain date. Then, after that date, none of the old prompts can be claimed anymore and new prompts will be brainstormed.

So please comment here with your opinion/what you would prefer.

If you have any other ideas, please let us know those too. =)

Thanks!

-- Lissa

P.S. I think #2 or #4 might be the best routes to go... Although the voting would take a little time, it would be fair and we wouldn't just have some of those prompts lying around. #4's sort of nice because it seems like a win, win, win for both options on last week's poll, but... I'm not sure. So please let us know what you think!

Readers can answer this, too =) We want a bunch of people's opinions.

Hello Rymon Fans! This is an important post concerning Season 8... or, RymonFest 2.0

Hey Fellow Rymon/AI Fans!

As the title suggests, please read this post!

American Idol Season 8 is upon us and...

I'm uncertain as to whether or not this comm should host another Rymon Fest... last year wasn't TOO much of a success, but it was fun to read the prompts and fics that resulted. This year I'd like to see more people participate, but I have to make sure more people would be interested/follow through. It's totally okay if you didn't make it last year, I don't want you to feel guilty or like you shouldn't participate this year, but just think of it as a second chance :D And btw, we'd love to see new faces here, too, as well as those who wrote fics for Rymon Fest 1.0... tell your friends about this comm!

Last year's Rymon Fest...

-- Of the 13 contestants interested, only 5 wrote fics. (congrats to jenncho , elenauial , mia6363 , strawberrytatoo , and redwhitedresses !)
-- Out of the 25 prompts that we came up with as a comm., 14 were claimed but only 6 were written for.

So I need to know how interested everyone would be in this! I'd love to do it again, but I have a few questions...

EDIT: Please vote in the polls in the post above this one =) Thanks!

Please comment! I hope there are still people who watch/are in this comm even though it has been on hiatus during the off-season of AI!

-- Lissa ♥

P.S. I'm planning on the deadline for the Rymon Fest to simply be the Finale show of Season 8... does that sound good? Should be plenty of time... also I might post monthly reminders or something, haha. =P

There were some good fic ideas on that prompt list. Did the deadline change?

Prompt #6
by Beta (strawberrytatoo)
at March 22nd, 2008 (08:45 pm)

Title: All tied up
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Rymon
Summary: Prompt 6, Ryan discovers Simon likes to be tied up. Instead of apologizing, Simon lets Ryan tie him up after being rude to him on the show.

Author's Note: Concrit and all comments more than welcome. Although I'm not new at writing fic, this is my first attempt at writing Rymon, I'm becoming somewhat psychotically obsessed with them, so this probably won't be my last Rymon fic ;)
