Weekend Challenge Schedule through to June 2016

Hi guys, here is the first schedule for the Weekend Challenges for this year. It covers the next 23 weekends so far; I'll revisit this in another 4-5 months so we can set up the schedule for the rest of the year. That way if anyone doesn't want to do any more or we have new volunteers, I can slot them into the schedule.

I have assigned everyone a colour to make it easier to pick out your rows in the schedule. I've also assigned you a nick-name (if I didn't already give you one) so sorry if it isn't what you'd choose, but this makes it easier for me! If there is a YES after your name, this means you want me to remind you when your weekend is coming up. I will email or PM you on Wed or Thurs of that week so there's time to find a replacement, if for some reason you can't do it. Let me know if I've got this wrong!

The current list of volunteers:

guineamania = GUINEA
thtwzjustadream = DREAMY - YES
sagaluthien = SAGA - YES
tkeylasunset = TKEYLA - YES
kahuna_burger = KAHUNA - YES
haldoor = HALDOOR
hanorganaas = LADY - YES
heffermonkey = MONKEY - YES
flipflop_diva = DIVA - YES
sharpiesgal = SHARPIE

Collapse )

So everyone I've listed here, if you can please advise in a comment here if the dates I've assigned are good or not, that would be great. Monkey, there's a comment just for you above, so please let me know as soon as you can if I can firm this up or if you want to swap.

And if anyone else wants to volunteer as back-up or for later in the year, let me know in a comment here too! Thanks, everyone, and I'm sorry for the delay! ;-)

Oh, and I must add a BIG THANKS to the members who so very kindly jumped on board and ran the weekend challenges for the weekends already passed this year, guineamania, elasticella and tkeylasunset! You are all stars! ;-)

Comment Fic Friday

And here it is, another Friday, so let's start the ball rolling on 2016's Comment Fic friday posts. This year I'll be posting these prompts once a month, usually on the second or third Friday of the month.

And if you don't know how comment fic works, this is all you have to do: use the prompt given in whatever way you like for whichever characters from any fandom (or an original fic of your own) and write a ficlet of any genre (unless I direct a specific one, which may happen on occasion!) that will fit into a comment (or two) and post it as a reply to the Comment Fic entry (or link it if you get a bit carried away with size!). Typically, a comment fic is around 700-800 words long, but anything around 1000 words or less can still fit the bill.

Now, this month's prompt is:

Glass half-empty or half-full?

So whether it's about a couple of your favourite characters arguing the age-old question of whether the cup is half-empty or half-full, or maybe it's one person contemplating why his/her life always seems to leave them wanting when they could be celebrating what they do have, or some other thing that the prompt sets your muses onto, comment here with your fic!

No deadlines, no limits on posting or writing. If it's a snippet from something bigger, or that's all she wrote, we'd love to see it!

And for the graphics people, how many icons does it inspire you to squeeze into a comment? Or perhaps a sigtag or a small banner? Go for it! ;-)
