[personal profile] nonelvis posting in [community profile] calufrax
Since our last sign-up post is getting a bit full, and I can't update it to include our revised rules, I'm making a second sign-up post.

If you'd like to rec at [ profile] calufrax, you're signing up for two weeks during which you rec 4-10 fics archived at the Teaspoon. All eras, genres, characters, and pairings are welcome, but the fic must be archived at the Teaspoon.

For each rec, please fill out the handy form below:

Word Count:
Author's Summary:
Warnings: Please DO NOT warn for slash or het.

Recced because:

Prefer to cut and paste into the HTML editor? Here you go:

To sign up, just leave your user name below and what eras of who you'd be able to rec in (classic series, new series, Big Finish and so on). IMPORTANT: if you are signing up using a Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or other OpenID account, please leave an email address or other online method I can use to contact you (but not Facebook messaging, please; I have no Facebook account) to confirm your reccing period and send you a reminder.

Before you sign up, a few rules:

  • Fics should be well-written -- that is, the author should know how to spell, format, and the difference between "it's" and "its" -- and avoid attacking any particular character or pairing in a malicious way (character-bashing). If you have any questions about whether the fic you'd like to rec meets these criteria, feel free to PM me.

  • Please remember that this is a general community, containing fans of all era of the show, and keep that in mind when choosing your recs. Please do not rec the same pairing all week; variations of the same pairing (that is, for instance, just 10/Rose and 9/Rose); or the same characters. Focussing on one particular character is acceptable only if they are recced in a variety of pairings; with characters of varying eras; or in a variety of het, slash, and gen.

  • Rule edited as of Jan 23, 2017: Up to 50% of your recs may be for stories that have been previously recced, provided they were recced at least two years ago. We have a handy list of tags you can use to check on the comm archives. ("Author" tags are most likely to catch previously recced fic.)

  • And worry not about tagging, your lovely mods will take care of that, yes.

  • Each fic rec should have its own post. This makes tagging much easier.

  • And finally ... please don't rec fic you've written yourself!

If you agree to rec, I'll PM you a reminder a few days before your weeks begin. Thanks for volunteering!

Okay, I am dumb. This morning it idly flicked through my mind to wonder about [ profile] calufrax and the anniversary (I think about things like this every now and then) and who would be reccing then and did the classic double take as I recollected when my two weeks were.

So: Thank you for giving me the awesomely significant date that I failed to note! And, though I am saying this now (with probably not even the minimum 4 recs to hand, or any idea if you have calufrax-anniverary plans already) but given the date I have in the middle, do I have permission to use some bonus recs on that date (should I have some suitably celebratory fics to hand)? Or do you have Plans?

I'm a dreadful DW fan, though. Still, it only took me a fraction over a week to realise!

Hee, I'm sure if it had begun or ended on the 23rd one of us would have noticed! :-)

When I'm collecting recs, I shall keep an eye out, then, because it would be quite nice to be able to mark the day in some way. I've been terrible at DW fic-writing lately - maybe I can be celebratory via Calufrax instead.

Fifty recs, one for each year of Doctor Who? ; )

I've been thinking about what to do in the way of bonus recs for the anniversary - I had a few thoughts - and in the end, the most realistic and workable (for me!) seemed to be this - a rec for a drabble/brief ficlet for each era over the anniversary weekend. I just thought I'd better check, because if I post as per the usual rules, that'd be 11 extra recs! So... is that okay? I would of course space it out over the day (the weekend, realistically) so it wasn't a sudden glut of posts - but would you rather I did posts of two or three at once just for that occasion to save on the spammage? Or not do that at all? (I did think about finding a couple of multi-era fics, but that just wasn't really working out - seems a bit awkward as well for me to single out one or two people's fic to represent the anniversary.)

If you'd rather we did something else - possibly I could post a masterpost (with maybe a multi-era/anniversary theme or something similarly appropriate, or a thread per Doctor) and people could rec away in the comments for a one-off or something?? What do you think? (I have most of the recs ready for the former already and the second is very easy to do and I'm around to keep an eye on the comments, so I am fine with either and am definitely keen to allow the comm to mark the occasion. I just don't want to do something that makes you regret you went off for your holiday weekend and left me to hold an anniversary party and leave streamers and uneaten food everywhere for you to clean up, as it were. ;-D)

(I don't think about these things too much, honest. *tries to look innocent*)

Great! I shall do that, and, yes, keep to the usual posting format! *nods* Your earlier post just reminded me that I'd been meaning to check now that I'd come up with a plan, just in case.
