Third Monday sign-ups are open!

Sign-ups will run until 11:00 PM EST on December 16. The basic sign-up instructions are on the form, or you can review the full sign-up rules. We're also happy to take sign-ups for pinch-hitting at this time.

Please take note of the message on the top of the form: some characters, especially those related to The Newsroom, may not appear in the autocomplete. The Archive coders have tracked down the bug and hope to have it fixed soon, but in the meantime, you can copy and paste their names as they appear in the tag set and everything will work fine. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If you need an Archive of Our Own invitation, please let us know by leaving a comment on this Dreamwidth post or e-mailing us at (By the way, we've added our RSS, ATOM, and LJ feed information to our profile, if you'd like another way to keep up with the updates posted here.)

Third Monday Sign Ups

Read the Rules Here

Can I request crossovers?
Yes. The borders between Fakenews, Realnews, and Polislash are thin anyway. If you want Rahm Emanuel/Wyatt Cenac during the Bartlet Administration that’s cool. If you want Jon Stewart to interview Howard Dean, that’s cool too. Use your imagination.

Do I have to request a crossover?
No. If you want Keith, Rachel and a stuffed squirrel, go ahead and request that. Jon/Stephen or Rahm/All the members of Congress are cool too.

I want to request The West Wing FPF, how does that work?
The West Wing characters in whole or part are eligible for this fandom solely as crossover characters. The means if you want Josh Lyman to appear on Countdown with Keith Olbermann, go for it, but a Josh/Donna romantic epic that includes no RPF characters isn’t really what this ficathon is aiming for.

Do I have to be willing to write a crossover/all of these fandoms to participate?
No. One the sign up form there will be a place to tell us what fandoms you are comfortable writing for, and you will get at least one prompt that matches your requirements. (Hopefully more than one, but it depends on what people request.)

What is the difference between Stephen Colbert and "Stephen Colbert"?
Stephen Colbert is the real person whereas "Stephen Colbert" is the character who Stephen Colbert plays.

Does my request have to be slashy?
No, this ficathon is open to gen, het, slash and any other category you care to name.
