Authors' names have been added to the fics at the CamelotRemix collection at the AO3!

Just be sure you keep the link to the fic you've remixed and the original author's name wherever you post.

Here's an updated version of the fic masterlist that was posted last Friday, also with added authors' names. Thanks to everyone who participated, with special thanks to [ profile] clevermonikerr, [personal profile] glim, [personal profile] lilian_cho, [personal profile] netgirl_y2k, and [personal profile] woldy for pinch hitting. Hope you had fun, everybody!

We have 31 stories by 26 authors, remixing fics by 30 different authors. Special thanks to the pinch hitters who did an awesome job coming through with some great fics in the last few days. [personal profile] lilian_cho is planning to make another post here soon with a list of links to all the stories, but for now there are lots of ways of finding what you want to read at the AO3.

The collection's Works page will display 20 of them at a time and you can browse back for earlier ones. By default it orders them by date, but you can use the buttons on the top right to reverse the order or sort alphabetically or by length or hit count. You can use the right sidebar to filter the fics and only see a particular rating, genre, tag, etc. Please note that the sidebar is only displaying Relationships that can be used for filtering because they've already been wrangled by archive support, but we do have a few fics with other ships.

It's possible that pages will be a leetle slow to load at times because new Yuletide business is increasing traffic at the site right now. But I've been clicking through a lot in the last few days and haven't had any problems.

Please comment on the stories you enjoy! Even though they're anonymous now, everyone should get emailed copies of their comments. If you're logged in with your AO3 account your comments will automatically show up with your name, and you'll get e-mailed any responses, just like on LJ or Dreamwidth. You can upload an icon if you want.

You can also use the AO3 bookmark feature either to mark stories you want to read later or as a quick way of reccing them, with or without tags, much like a Delicious save. We hope people will post recs too, and we'll have another post soon for linking to them.

If you don't have an AO3 account (hello, lurkers!) you can still comment on stories: just fill out your name (if you want) and e-mail (which won't be displayed). If you don't have an account and you'd like one, we have some extra invite codes, so please don't hesitate to ask

Participants, even if you didn't end up posting a story of your own, please, please, thank your remixer!

If you see a problem with your fic, remember that you can still do edits yourself. If there's a problem we need to know about, as always you can comment here or e-mail camelotremix at gmail. Have fun, everybody!

Hello, remixers! We’ve reached October 9th, the deadline for uploading your stories to the CamelotRemix Collection at the AO3! So far we have stories (or drafts) for 14 out of 30 participants. The posts are looking great (love the funky titles especialy) and the fics [personal profile] netgirl_y2k and I have had a chance to read so far are made of awesome and win. We can’t wait for them to go live.

The rest of you are getting ready to post tonight (or have contacted us to say when you will), right? It looks like we never got around to specifying a time zone, so we’ll wait to until tomorrow to see who still needs a remix and start assigning pinch hitters.

Here’s a link to the posting instructions and here are a few reminders:
  • The AO3 will allow you to keep editing after you submit. If you’re still revising your fic, please go ahead and post your draft now so we mods can see that you’ve written a story and we don’t need to assign a pinch hitter. Fics won’t go public until Wednesday at the earliest (we should have a better idea tomorrow) so you can keep editing until then.

  • Please leave out beta thanks and other potential identifying information from now. You’ll be able to add them in later, after the author reveal.

  • Additional Tags aren’t required but they help readers find your story.

If you are the kind of person who likes shaking the boxes before you open your presents, you can play with filters on the side of the CamelotRemix Works page or take a look at the Additional Tags cloud. If you’re logged in at the AO3 you can also check on your Gifts in the left sidebar to see if a remix of your fic has been posted yet. If you don’t want to have any clue, forget I said anything!

Best of luck to those of you who are rushing to finish your fics and post tonight. Please let us know if there’s anything we can help with!

The posting deadline for [personal profile] camelotremix/[ profile] camelotremix is October 9, two weeks from today. You’ll need to post your Remix to the Archive of Our Own, which is pretty easy to do, even if you haven’t used it before. The short version is:

1. Go to the Camelot Remix 2013 collection and click on the Post to Collection button.

2. Fill out all the relevant fields on the form, including checking the remix box, filling in the URL of the remixed story, and filling in your remixee’s name as a recipient.

3. Click on Preview (bottom right, below the text box for the story) and make sure everything displays the way you want it. If you need to change something, click on Edit. Edit, Preview, and repeat.

4. Click on Post (bottom right) when you’re ready to post!

You’ll be able to see your own story and you can make any time, but the stories won’t go public until the mods flip the switch. The earliest this will happen is October 12th but it will probably closer to the 16th. (It will be whenever we have a remix for everybody.)

If you like visuals, there’s a nice simple Tutorial on posting to a challenge at the AO3, which has screencaps. (Just ignore the part about “My Signups” - since we didn’t do signups there, it doesn’t apply.)

How's it going, Remixers? The deadline is coming up on October 9, two weeks two days from today. The minimum word count is 1000. We can do it!

Are you finished? Are you close? I know of one person who's their remix already. We'll try to get detailed posting instructions up this weekend, but if anyone's eager to post it should be pretty easy, especially if you've used the AO3 before. You go to the Camelot Remix collection, click on "Post to Collection", and fill out all the fields, including "Recipient" and the fields that come up when you check the "This work is a remix". Once it's posted you'll be able to see and edit it, but it won't go public until the mods unlock all the fics together.

Are you not finished? Have yet to start? You're not alone! I ([personal profile] sophinisba) had planned to set a good modly example and free myself up for pinch hits by finishing early. Instead I made a couple of short attempts that didn't go anywhere, and at this point I haven't touched it in two weeks and still don't know which story I'm going to remix. Um.

Need to freak out a little? Need a peptalk? Want to crow about how good it feels to be finished already? Have questions or helpful tips you want to share with the group? Here's the place for it. If you're afraid that what you want to say could give you away, feel free to comment anonymously (but please avoid dissing your remixer or their fics!). If you'd like to communicated just with the mods you can use the Contacting the Mods post (LJ|DW) or e-mail camelotremix at gmail.

Speaking of anonymity, someone asked if they should try to tone down aspects of their remix that would out them as an author. My opinion is that this is up to each author. I think people should be careful about staying anonymous before the fics go up and in things that are not the fic itself. If you post to your journal or comment here about how much you're enjoying writing epic femslash for the first time or if you ask for someone to beta 1400 words of Uther/Lancelot with crossdressing, you're kind of giving away the game.

On the other hand, if the fic itself has a lot of your kinks and quirks, readers who know you are likely to have fun recognizing them. I have three times been remixed by friends whose style I know and recognized (most recently by my co-mod [personal profile] netgirl_y2k) and each time it was really exciting to think, "Oooh, only she could have written that line." Some people get a kick out of trying to disguise themselves in anon exchanges, but I think it's not really necessary, especially in a remix where part of the point is making the story your own.

But, like I said to the author who asked about this, that's just my opinion and not any kind of Remix Rule. I'd love to hear other people's opinions and experiences with this. What have you done to try to keep the magic secret? Did it work? Was it worth it? (Or do you wish you'd told him the truth a long time ago?)

Have fun. I'll be offline most of the day but I hope you have some good discussion and we'll try to answer questions tonight.

Greetings, Remixers! We sent out assignments a few hours ago. Please let us know if you have not received yours.

Also, here's a space to comment or link to a post on your journal if you have anything to say to your remixer, such as giving an alternate link to a different fic listing or telling them that you're planning to post another fic next week. We'll update this post to say who's commented on the LJ and Dreamwidth sides. This note is completely optional.

In LJ comments: vivitchi, pepperlandgirl4, mellacita, xsmoonshine, itachitachi, tetsubinatu.
