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.

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.

Please comment with the below information:

Willing to contribute fic, art, or either:
Teams you're willing to be on:
Did you participate last year?:
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 if you have any questions.

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!


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]

2008 Triatha Ron!

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!


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.

Mod Post: The Winners!

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.

Look for a master list of fics later this week!
