Short version: It's Fic Telephone.

Long version based on Muccamukk's MCU Rolling Remix.

How would it work?

1. One person would write a fic and post it to a moderated collection on AO3.
2. The mod would send that fic to someone else, who would remix it in the tradition of remixes everywhere.
3. They would post their remix to the same moderated, unrevealed comm.
4. The mod would send the remix (but NOT the previous story) to someone else, who would remix the remix.
5. Repeat steps three and four until we've run out of people.
6. The mod gets everyone to change the posting dates so that they're the same and make sure there's no order identifying information.
7. Comm goes live with authors and dates secret, and everyone can guess who wrote what, and what the remixing order was.
8. Mod posts a reveal of authors and remix order.
9. ???
10. Profit!

What fandom would this be?

Star Wars, limited to the Episode movies:
  • Prequel Trilogy
    • Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
    • Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
    • Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith

  • Original Trilogy
    • Episode 4: A New Hope
    • Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back
    • Episode 6: Return of the Jedi

  • Sequel Trilogy
    • Episode 7: The Force Awakens
References to other parts of the Star Wars Universe, such as Rogue One, the Legends books or the Clone Wars cartoon are fine, so long as they don't contain spoilers and are understandable with sole knowledge of the Episode movies (mod reserves the right to call this). Not everyone participating will have extended universe knowledge.

What's a remix?

The fanfiction equivalent of song covers: you take a story and rewrite it. For example, you could expand on a moment in the fic or cover a larger scale or focus on different characters.

Is there a pairing rule?

No. Unlike in other remixes, remixers may change the pairing, or make the fic gen, or make the fic about a minor character, or go off on a tangent completely. However, the mod would request no ship bashing (mod reserves the right to call this). You do, however, have to be somewhat prepared to deal with most characters in the Star Wars Episode movies.

Are there restrictions on what can be in the remix?

Yes, they are:
  • No rape/non-con, non-canonical character death, graphic torture, incest, or sex involving characters under sixteen.
  • No remixing into a crossover, as other users may not know the crossover.
  • No setting-change AUs. All fics must be set a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. Other AUs (ex: canon-divergence) are fine.
  • No grudge remixes that mock the fic being remixed (mod reserves the right to call this).

How long would each fic be?

At least 1000 words, but no upper limit.

How long would we have to write?

Two weeks from when you get it. So that means it's going to run long, and everything won't get posted for a while, which is annoying, but I don't see a way around it, unfortunately.

My turn has come up, and RL is kicking my ass, can I defer?

The mod will e-mail when it's your turn to make sure you're good to go. You can defer once, before you get the fic to remix, and be put back into a later slot. However, if you've already seen the fic, you have to take you turn, as the point is that you don't see more than one version.

What if I take my turn, but then can't do it?

More notice is better, but if for some reason you can't finish, the mod will arrange for someone further down the stream to step in, and let everyone else know about schedule adjustments. If you end up finishing your fic before reveals, you can still post it, but it won't be remixed by someone else.

When will this run?

I'm hoping the first story will be written over February. The end point will depend on how many people sign up.

How do I sign up?

Sign-ups are here! They'll close on February 11 2017.
