Hi all. I'm sorry to tell you that unfortunately the fest is being put on hold until further notice. Both of us have some unexpected RL concerns that are going to make it impossible for us to devote to the fest the time it deserves. We're sorry to disappoint all of you who put your names in for the sign up and who were looking forward to the fest. We hope to be back in the game in a couple of months, but right now we just don't know.

I hope those of you so inclined will check out our affiliate rs_games, a Remus/Sirius fest.
1st-Mar-2008 09:47 am - Sign Up Post!
This is where you comment to put your name in for this year's lottery. Sign-ups will be open until Saturday (morning), March 8.

Are you willing to be a pinch hitter?:

Don't forget to take a look at the 2008 FAQ for our rules and timeline of the fest. Please comment or email us at triatharon.mod@gmail.com if you have any questions.
17th-Feb-2008 07:11 am - preliminary roster
Hi, all. Sign ups for invited participants have now ended, so here's our current team roster. As you can see, we still have plenty of room left, plus we'll be reserving two slots per team for new participants.

Open sign ups for the remaining slots will begin on March 1.

Yay Ron!
13th-Jan-2008 11:45 am - invites
Bobo
Hi all – just wanted to clear up a couple of misconceptions about how we invited people this year. Of course all of last year's participants were awesome, but we couldn't invite everyone because we really wanted to make space for people who hadn't gotten lucky in the lottery last year. So invites went out to last year's pinch hitters (for being awesome and stepping in at the last minute) and then a very small group of others who fit some combination of factors including but not limited to: not needing an extension last year, current fandom participation level and interest, expressing interest to one of the mods before we made the announcement. This was not a scientific process - we had established an overall number of invites and when we reached that number we stopped looking through the list.

So if you were a participant last year and didn't get an invite, this doesn't mean we don't want you! It's honestly not personal. It just means we didn't get to your name or you didn't fit a couple of the criteria above or we couldn't find your email or something like that. Please do come and sign up for the lottery in March, because we'd really love to have you take part.

We're really sorry if anyone's feelings have been hurt over this, and I really hope you'll understand that we were just trying to be fair and create a balance between new and old participants.

Any questions, please feel free to email us at triatharon.mod[at]gmail.com.
11th-Jan-2008 03:50 pm - 2008 Triatha Ron!
Bobo
Hi all! *waves* I just wanted to let you know that we are indeed going to have another round of the triatha_ron in 2008! As some of you may know, mad_maudlin is currently overseas, so tarie and I will be mostly running this round. There are going to be a few changes both for variety and for keeping the comm going under LJ's new rules. I'm not quite ready to roll all that out yet, but I wanted to let you know that something's on the radar so you can get your Ron engines pumping. But I think our basic schedule is going to look something like this (not set in stone!):

March 1: sign-ups begin
March 8: sign-ups end
March 9: teams listed and assignments go out via email
April 13: posting begins

I think we're going to maintain the Het, Slash, and Gen team structure. More details to follow, honest. :D If you have suggestions for prompts you'd like to see or any changes you'd like made, please comment here. I'm especially interested in incorporating art for this round in addition to fic, so if you are an artist who would consider participating, would you please just drop a comment and say "ooooh, me!" so I can see if we have enough interest? Thanks!

And many thanks to shocolate for poking me about the fest!
3rd-Aug-2007 09:17 pm - Remember me? CRITICAL MOD POST
triatharon
This is a very important announcement.

In light of the rampant crazy running through fandom right now, I have gone back and locked all the NC-17 fest fics in this journal. If your fic wasn't NC-17 and you still want it locked, or if I missed your NC-17 fic, please let me know.

21st-Mar-2007 07:00 pm - Mod Post: The Winners!
triatharon
Ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've all been waiting for.

The polls on the last set of fics closed this afternoon, and I must say, this one was down to the wire. But in the end--by a margin of 0.12 points--we had a winner. And that winner is...

Team Het!

I want to congratulate all our writers, irrespective of team, on a job well done--we've got forty-five wonderful Ron fics out of this deal. I'd like to thank my co-mods, marginaliana and tarie, because without them I'd never have had the guts to do this fest. And I'd like to thank J. K. Rowling, for creating a certain sweet, courageous, stubborn, flawed, wonderful redheaded boy.

Banners under the cut for all teams!Collapse )

Look for a master list of fics later this week!
17th-Mar-2007 11:24 am - Mod Post: Apologies and a Wrap
triatharon
I'd like to apologize for the lateness of the "Time" prompt fics--technology and health conspired against my getting them posted last night. The polls for those fics will remain open for the full four days, though, so the winning team will be announced on Wednesday, March 21.

Without giving anything away, I can safely say that the voting right now is extreme close--so pimp your teams' last two fics! This is still anyone's race!

triatharon
Hey, folks. Due to some last-minute acts of pinch-hitting heroics, today's fics will be posted rather late...as in tomorrow, probably. Don't worry, the polls will still be open for a full four days.

I'd like to take this time to thank all the pinch hitters who stepped up and came through for their teams and for the fest (not to mention the fest mods!). dramedy, attilatehbun, junesrose, kaellite, mizbean and sapphocles, you ladies are rock stars. Rock. Stars. They all deserve big, big hugs and showers of praise! And of course, no less love should be visited upon therealmarajade, frenchfriedeggs and bottomsup07, who remained vigilantly in the wings to rescue us in our hour of need.

Once again, thanks to all our writers for two weeks of wonderful Ron fic--especially those of you who came through in a pinch!

Length: 3,986
Summary: After the war, Ron spends his summer at the Burrow, trying to put the past behind him and move on. When he finds a locket, he's thrown back into the one thing he wants to escape – the past.
Author notes: (optional) I had a really tough time with this fic, especially since most of the time I was debating which pairing to use as most wanted to use Ron/Harry. So I went for the next best thing – James. I never state outright state what year James is in but I figure it's his sixth year since he and Lily don't get together till their seventh. Enjoy the fic and keep slashing!

Team: Gen
Prompt: Lies
Rating: PG
Pairings/Characters: Hint of R/Hr, H/Hr
Warnings: none
Length: just over 1000 words
Summary: Ron becomes philosophical; set summer of 7th year

Authors Notes: This "assignment" was a challenge I gave myself. Although I don't profess to be a writer, I have recently enjoyed dabbling in the idea of putting words down on "paper", so to speak. This has been quite the challenge for me due to circumstances in real life, the prompt being quite ironic, actually.

I want to thank my friends crikkita, copper_beech, leftsockarchive, thetreacletart, and my newest acquaintance, le_calmer_geant for cheering me on, and for their input in this little drabble.

A HUGE "Thank You" goes to my lovely beta, jaceyevans, who went over this for me in the last second. Although I must admit to adding a bit more to it so any additional errors are all mine.

And, lastly, mad_maudlin, for her patience.

Prompt: Family
Rating: PG
Characters: Ron, obviously, but Molly, Percy, Fred, George, and Ginny, too.
Warnings: Not unless you've a problem with Mum-perspective gushing.
Length: 1,685 words.
Summary: Ron has the dragon pox.
Author Notes: First off, I'd like to issue an enormous thanks to sister_dear for the beta. You're comments were indeed quite helpful. Any ensuing mistakes are thus my own.

Second off, this turned out to be a surprising challenge, indeed. I thought my prompt of "family" would be quite easy to get through, but as it turns out I went through at least eight drafts and ideas before I ended up with this piece. I had to draw a lot from my own experiences as a child, for this one, which was emotionally draining in the extreme.

I'm still unsure about my feelings of Ron in this; he's the star, especially for me, but a lot of this fic is about nuance, about being the youngest (or second to youngest, but youngest boy) in a family with large personalities. Sometimes children get a bit lost, I think. I wanted to show Ron in conjunction with his family, through the eyes of his mother, but as a bit of an enigma, still, because he's a boy who's not done growing and who hasn't established or asserted his full individuality yet. I dunno if I succeeded, but I sure did try.

1st-Mar-2007 11:48 am - Team Gen: A Drop of Red
triatharon
Story title: A Drop of Red
Author name: approximedic
Team: Team Gen
Prompt: ' Memory'
Rating: PG
Pairings/Characters: Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Harry Potter
Warnings: Character Death
Length: 3170
Summary: What you remember and what actually happened are two things which rarely coincide. Ron finally realises what he had done, the day the prophecy was fulfilled.

Author notes: This is definitely the weirdest prophecy theory I've ever had and came to me when I was sleep deprived, incredibly stressed and craving chocolate. A whole lotta love goes to chesnutella who listened to all the complaining I did about the plot holes and gave helpful and not so helpful suggestions that at least kept me entertained and stopped me trying to kill off all my characters in a fit of writer's wrath. Long live teh Gen! : )

Hello all! I know you are all very excited in anticipation of the first fics to be posted, as am I!

I want to once again thank all of you who wrote in our drabble fest, and also those of you who commented and supported the writers. There was some tremendous work produced on all three teams. Also, I want to remind you all that voting was cumulative, so even if your drabble didn't get the most votes for its prompt, all the votes it received counted towards the total for that team. That said, it is my pleasure to announce that the Drabble Fest winning team is...

*drumroll*

Team Gen!


Second place goes to Team Slash and third place to Team Het. Thanks again to everyone who participated - the world always needs more Ron-osity. :D

Beneath the cut are some icons that can be used by anyone who wrote a drabble for any of the prompts. Please do not take these if you didn't write drabbles in this fest. If you did participate and wish to use one or more of these, go wild!

icons!Collapse )

If you have any questions about the drabble fest, please let me know. Otherwise...

Happy birthday, Ron!

triatharon
Hey writers! It's almost time for the TriathaRon posting to begin, and I just wanted to give a few pre-emptive kudos. Mad wacky props to co-mod marginaliana for running a wonderful Drabble-a-Thon, and to all our writers whose hard work will shortly be going on display!

Before we begin, I want to give everying a crash course in how to vote for stories. Every fic will, at the bottom, include a poll with three questions, each good for 1-10 points:

How well was Ron portrayed in this fic? Not necessarily "Is Ron a good guy?" or even "Is Ron shown in a positive light?" but how skillfully the author evoked the character we all know and love (warts, freckles and all).

How well did the author use the prompt? The prompts were very general, and authors had free reign to come up with creative interpretations. The fic might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "fire" or "summer" or "loss," but it might just evoke that word in a way you didn't expect.

Overall, how much did you like this fic? This one, at least, is obvious. :-)

Votes will be collected for four days, give or take a few hours, after a fic is posted. After that, the score will be entered into the Modly Scorebook, and the poll will be deleted. So writers, pimp your teammates' fics! The more votes you get, the merrier!

The average score for each of these questions will be summed, so in the end, each fic will have a total score out of thirty. Each team will have a score out of 450 (30 x 15--see, I can do maths!). The highest-scoring team will, in the end, win the TriathaRon!

If you have any questions or concerns about the voting process, please comment here or email us at triatharon.mod@gmail.com.

Drabbling Rules RefresherCollapse )

This post will close to drabbles Sunday. This is the last drabble prompt before the fics are posted!

Prompt #11: Since March 1 is both the start date of our main fest and Ron's birthday, that's our prompt - birthday! It doesn't have to be Ron's that you write about - it could be Ron celebrating someone else's birthday as long as, per usual, Ron is the central character.

Writing for this prompt is now closed. Please vote for these drabbles over at the voting post.
