A Ron Ficathon where Everyone's a Winner!
Let the Games Begin! 
10th-Jan-2007 05:16 pm

Welcome to the First Running of the TriathaRon!

The TriathaRon is a new Ron-centric ficathon based in part on the model of snarry_games. Teams of Het, Gen and Slash writers will be pitted against each other in a friendly competition over one Ronald Billius Weasley. Because there can never be to much Ron love!

We have invited almost thirty of the fandom's best Ron writers to participate; the current team roster is here. But these aren't the only people who will be writing with us this year. Open sign-ups for the remaining team slots will begin on Friday, January 12 at 6pm GMT. Watch the community for more information!

The anticipated fest timeline:

January 12-15: Open sign-ups
January 16: Final team rosters posted
January 17: Prompts assigned
February 21: All fics are due to the Mods
March 1-15: Fics will be posted
March 19: The winners are announced!

For complete rules of the game, check out our FAQ post.

And lest you wonder what you're supposed to do if you're not part of a team...fear not! Moderator marginaliana will be refereeing a drabble-a-thon for our community watchers as we await the wonderful Ron fics to come. The details are here.

Under the cut are some graphics and icons for anyone to use--not just our players--to promote the TriathaRon. Please do not hotlink these images; right-click and save to your own media.

For more information, please contact us at triatharon.mod (AT) gmail (dot) com!

It's totally beautiful! It may sound partial 'cause it's my team icon, but... wow!

(is it ok to borrow at lest for the duration of the Thriathron?

Who are the artists for these wonderful graphics? *pervs over the slash graphic despite being on team het*
11th-Jan-2007 12:59 am (UTC)
reallycorking's art is used for the Het and Slash banner, while __hibiscus's art is used for the Gen banner. :D
11th-Jan-2007 01:19 am (UTC)
Who made them? I want to credit properly :))
11th-Jan-2007 01:19 am (UTC)
I made them. :D
11th-Jan-2007 01:21 am (UTC)
Sweet! XD
11th-Jan-2007 01:00 am (UTC)
okay. I am so embarassed, but I had to look three times at your icon to figure out that it did not say "Moo"


and the banners are gorgeous! <3 <3 <3
11th-Jan-2007 01:10 am (UTC)
Wow you guys, this is great. Those banners/icons are just beautiful too. Very beautiful.

I can't wait to read some good Ron fic!

Hey mods...this comm isn't showing up on my flist. Any suggestions?
11th-Jan-2007 02:25 am (UTC)
Hmm. According to the comm's user info, you're a member but not a watcher. Are you certain you have it friended?
11th-Jan-2007 02:35 am (UTC)
I friended it, but needed to watch it. Fixed it. I'm good.

I also created a comm for Team Slash. I hope that's okay....
11th-Jan-2007 04:01 am (UTC)
Of course! Let me know what the comm name is and I'll edit it into the roster post.
11th-Jan-2007 08:53 am (UTC)
I'll be at the computer tomorrow, waiting for that sign-up post. I'm dying to be apart of this.
11th-Jan-2007 12:16 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, baby, team slash!

(Is it bad I want to write for everything? Damn you, making me choose! There needs to be a special category for losers with too much time on their hands: Team Obsessed, perhaps. xD)
