No bus you've ever been on has ever had a sunroof, you say? Only because you've never been on one designed by me. In my world everything has a sun roof. ;-)
So, as I said in my original post, the fest is going to work a bit differently this year. Between now and Sunday the 29th of June (so two weeks), we're going to be collecting prompts. These can be Sharing Knife, Chalion, Vorkosiverse - whatever you want. Suggest as many of them as you wish, even if you don't think you'll be able to participate. They should answer at least one of who? when? how? So, for example:
Cordelia and Aral following Mirror Dance
Caz/Palli during the events of Chalion
Kareen and Mark on Beta (any point in the timeline)
On the 29th (or shortly thereafter), I will make a post listing all of the different prompts, broken up into categories. At that point you can claim prompts - as many as you want, even if someone else has claimed it already, though I advise against claiming more than you can reasonably write (don't get people's hopes up for nothing). You can claim at any point between the 29th of June and when posting starts, so if you finish one, feel more than free to come back and grab something else.
Posting will be the week of August 10th through the 17th. I'll assign categories to each day of that week (so hopefully we'll have Chalion 'verse day, a TSK day, maybe a crossover day, etc.). You post your story (or fanart, as the case may be) on the appropriate day - but should you miss your day, do not fear! The final day of the Fest, Sunday, August 17th, will be Free-for-All day in which you can post any and everything you might have based on a prompt from the Fest.
SO! Here is a rough and dirty run down of the details:
