( Drabbling Rules RefresherCollapse )
This post will close to drabbles Wednesday and the next prompt will be posted then.Prompt #10:
a little something different for this one - poetry! This can be the subject of your drabble, as with the previous prompts, or you can write a poetic drabble.
We're entering the last stretch in terms of drabbles (after this, only one more prompt to go), so get writing! :DWriting for this prompt is now closed. Please vote for these drabbles over at the voting post.
::taps the mic:: Is this thing on?
Hey, folks. I've been a rather inattentive mod lately--who wouldn't be, when marginaliana
is doing such a fabulous job picking up the slack? But it's getting to be that time again, where I actually have to do my job.
This is a reminder that the official deadline for fic submissions is Wednesday, February 21.
This means we want your completed fic in our inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) on that date. If you think you're going to need more time than that, for some reason, please let us moderators know ASAP so we can work out an extension.
Sadly, we've already had two writers drop out of the fest. If you don't believe you'll be able to complete your fic at all, please let us moderators know as soon as possible
so that we can set our doughty pinch hitters into motion.
I hope everyone is having a fabuluous time writing their fics and writing drabbles. Looking forward to the first of March!

broomstickDrabbling for this prompt is now closed! You can vote on the drabbles at the voting post.
Under the cut is a table with the prompt assignments for each writer!
Prompts were assigned randomly. At some point today, each writer will receive an email from us with their specific prompt, in addition to the table. Please let us know if you notice any errors in the table!
I'd like to resolve any difficulties with prompts as soon as possible.( Prompt AssignmentsCollapse )
A quick comment about prompts: If you're not happy with your prompt assignment, you are free to switch with a teammate. We only ask that you notify the mods so we can keep track of who is writing what.

Ladies and gentlebeings, under the cut are the final team assignments for the TriathaRon!
I want to say that I'm very excited about these teams--there are a good mix of veteran writers and new people. I'm sorry that some very worthy writers who signed up were not chosen, but I hope you will all consider writing in the drabble-a-thon that starts tomorrow!
If you're curious about how the teams were chosen: I used a program called Inspiration Pad Pro
to generate the right number of random picks for each team, weighted slightly towards everyone's first choice from their sign-up message. If you object to your team assignment in any way
(ie you decide you really can't write gen after all, or you don't want to be a pinch hitter anymore) please let us know right away so that a substitute can be found!( The Teams!Collapse )
The open sign-up period is now closed. I'd like to that the 38 people who put their names in the hat! The final rosters will be chosen randomly, and will be posted to the community tomorrow.

Hey gang! Since my name is the first on the list, I went ahead and set up a comm for Team Slash
Go to ron_goes_slash
and join up, Team Slash. It'll be our own small place in the universe to plot and give each other needed support to sustain us through this competition.
Woo-Hoo! Go Team Slash. Let's write some wonderful stories about Ron gettin' it on, slashy style.
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
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.( Banners and iconsCollapse )

*proves I am capable of copying shocolate
I went and created ron_can_gen
for our tiny, ickle Team Gen.
We may want to gab and wibble about our fics, particularly those of us who are accustomed to writing a Ron who uses his bits well and often. I have invited all of you currently on Team Gen. Please come over and play!
I hope that this is allowed, darling mods....
I have created a comm called ron_tries_het
, where Team Het members can generally hang out, help each other with tricky questions like 'how many breasts does a woman have?', swap prompts, cry on shoulders, adore Ron, etc....
I have invited everyone already on the team, so just come and join.....
Here are the teams for the inaugural running of the Triatha-Ron!( Table under the cutCollapse )
Also, there are a couple of communities for team members: Team Het has ron_tries_het
, Team Slash has ron_goes_slash
and Team Gen has ron_can_gen
. Please note, though, that these communities aren't an official capacity and the TriathaRon mods do not have any control over them.
Please contact the mods if:
*You are unhappy with your team assignment and wish to switch
*You no longer wish to play
*You notice any other errors in the table
The emply slots will be filled by open sign-ups starting Friday, January 12.
