Master List, Small Things Made Large Amnesty [Apr. 4th, 2009|11:15 am]

[Tags|, ]

Five new fics in the amnesty portion of the "Small Things Made Large" challenge!

This challenge began with 50 drabbles written as prompts for longer fics. I'm posting these amnesty fics with the authors' names revealed, and the drabble that inspired the fic is included at the beginning of the story, along with its author.

Enjoy, and thanks to everyone who contributed in every phase of this challenge!

Drabble: #47 by [info]xie_xie_xie
Notes: post S-5 so beware of spoilers if still necessary. By popular demand, this is the second part of Into the Night, but it is not absolutely necessary to read the first part in order to understand this (though you are of course very much welcome to read it! ;))

The snow was glistening beautifully in the late-afternoon sun...  )

Small Things Made Large: The amnesty! [Mar. 11th, 2009|08:50 pm]

[Tags|, ]

As promised, I'm going to have a short amnesty period for full length fics from the second phase of the "Small Things Made Large" challenge.

The challenge is to write full length stories -- minimum word count 500 -- that are inspired by the drabbles in phase one. The drabbles are here.

Unlike the earlier challenge, you can write a full-length fic for any drabble, even if you are also the author of the drabble(s),

Because this is a short challenge, I really need you to sign up for it so I know what to expect. Please sign up on this post, even if you already let me know on my earlier post that you were or might be participating.

Fics will be due on Friday, April 3 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time (the time in San Francisco, California). There will be a ten minute grace period. I will post them on Saturday, April 4.

Please carefully read this earlier post to see all the rules, the header info that I need, how to submit your fic, etc.

Questions? Ask here!

Thanks, everyone!

Small Things Made Large: The reveal! [Mar. 11th, 2009|01:19 pm]



Xie's little helper, [info]fansee, will be assisting me in adding the authors' names to each drabble and fic in both phases of the challenge, as well as the master lists. We'll be doing this ASAP, but it might take some time to complete because between LJ and IJ that's 146 fics.

In the meantime, for those who want to know now now now, and to allow the authors to link to, respond to comments on, crosspost, and otherwise own and claim their works... the reveal!

The drabble master list, currently listed by drabble number, is here. Until we have updated it with authors, you can cross-reference with this list:

Master list, with authors, phase one drabbles )

The full length fic master list is here, by title of the story. Until I have that updated, here is a list of stories and authors here, with links to each story:

Master list, with authors, phase two full length fics )

Have fun and give all the authors as much love as is humanly possible!

And as always, please comment here or email me at xie.kay at gmail.com if I've made any mistakes, have broken links, etc!

Also, I will be announcing the details of the forthcoming amnesty for this challenge, as well as the next challenge, later today!

Amnesty? [Mar. 9th, 2009|02:22 pm]


I've had an amazing number of requests for an amnesty for the "Small Things Made Large" challenge. I'm happy to run one, and I'm going to throw in a twist: authors can write full length fics for their own drabbles if they wish.

However, unless I get at least five firm commitments for amnesty fics, I'm not going to do this. So if you missed the deadline, or inspiration hit you after it passed, could you please comment here and let me know if you're in? If you are tentative, please let me know that, too.

Amnesty fics would be due April 3 at 11:59 PM California time.

This will not delay the announcement of the next challenge, by the way. I'll be announcing that on Wednesday when the authors of the current fics are revealed. :)

Master List, Small Things Made Large, Phase Two [Mar. 7th, 2009|12:10 pm]

[Tags|, ]

I've finished posting the amazing selection of fics from the authors of the "Small Things Made Large" second phase fics. These are the full-length fics inspired by the drabbles written for phase one, which are here.

Reminder: If you are an author for either phase, we will be revealing your names in five days (Wednesday, March 11). Until then, please do not crosspost these anywhere, do not respond to comments on your fics, and please don't reveal that you're the author. After we've posted the reveal here on the 11th, you can do all those things. :)

Please remember to check back for comments or to track comments to posts containing your fic(s).

These fics are being crossposted to both LJ and IJ; the LJ mirror of this post is here.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to both phases of this challenge. I had a wonderful time reading your stories, and there are some spectacular drabbles and full-length fics here. Congratulations to everyone for a job very well done!

I'll be announcing the details of our next challenge right after the big reveal, so don't forget to keep an eye on this community on both LJ and IJ!

Master List of Authors, Phase 2 )

As always, if I made an error, have a broken link, received a fic that I didn't include, or there's anything I need to fix, please post here or email me at xie.kay at gmail.com.

Enjoy the fics and leave the authors lots and lots and lots of love!
