Doctor Who Remix 2015

dw_remix will be running again this year! The format will be the same as last year. So you can either offer up your fics to be remixed or remix other people's fics or both.

It's moving slightly earlier this year to get it in before Yuletide and it means remixers will get their assignments on the day Doctor Who is back (in the UK) if not before, which hopefully will inspire you all!

As before, sign-ups will be here on LJ, posting will be on LJ or AO3 or both (there will be a subcollection on AO3 and a masterlist here).

2015 dates:
Remixee sign-ups: 31st August-7th September
Remixer sign-ups: 9th-16th September
Assignments out by: 19th September latest
Posting: 27th-30th October
Master list posted: 31st October


Remix Redux

The original Remix challenge is running again this year - sign ups have just opened. You can find all the details at remixers_lounge. You used to have to qualify in certain big fandoms, this year that requirement has gone, so you can sign up for New Who, Classic Who, Torchwood or SJA - or any other small Doctor Who related fandoms (and non-Doctor Who fandoms too).

I will run this remix again later this year, probably along the same lines as last year (so you get to choose who you remix).

A combined remix of astrogirl2's stories: Home Is the Place That's There for You to Leave, Survivor, Veteran, and The Weather in Your Eyes, because all were so amazing it was too hard to just choose one. Thank you to morganfm for the beta.

His young eyes survey this unchosen birthplanet as he prepares to run away, weary of the rules and regulations, disillusioned with neglected power of his people. The stars themselves now summon, beckoning him away from this prison he'd once called home. And when Susan asks where they and his quite old new ship shall go, he replies anywhere, meaning everywhere, giddy with the possibilities.

Perhaps, he hopes,

Posting is open

It's the 4th November, so posting is now open. You can either post something here or to the 2014 collection on AO3, which is open so your story will appear immediately upon posting. (or you can post to both)

The last day you can post is Friday.

Two week warning

This is your two week warning to when you can start posting. You have two and a half weeks until the final deadline when you need to have your story posted.

Posting Guidelines

If you are not going to be able to finish your fic that's fine, I just want to know. You can either reply to the email or PM you got with your assignment, or leave a comment in the mod contact post. There are no penalties for dropping out, as long as you do it before I start chasing you for your story. If I do have to chase you and you then drop out, I might well hold a grudge for future rounds.

Posting is between 4th and 7th November. That means that if it's the 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th November in any time zone, you can post. You can either post to this LJ or to this year's collection on AO3. You can do both and you can post it in other places too, as long as you do one of the above.

If you want you can post to the AO3 collection before the 4th - currently all stories are hidden and they will be revealed sometime on the 4th November (it requires us to click a button to reveal them).

When you post here, you can either post the whole story or link to it somewhere else. Bear in mind that you have to be a member of the comm to post and it could take up to 24 hours for me to give you access.

On 8th November I'll post a masterlist of all stories and chase anyone who hasn't posted their story. You'll get one day to post your story; after that it'll be too late.

Information about remix subtitles (should you want to use them) has now been added to the FAQ.

Assignments sent

I have just sent out the assignments by email or PM. If you haven't got it in a few hours (and it's not in your spam/junk folder), let me know and I'll use a different method to get it to you.

Everyone should have their first choice (or one of their first choices). If I did something wrong and you've been assigned someone you didn't put down as your first choice, let me know and I'll fix it.
