Disney on Acid - Farscape Potluck Ficathon

There are several different types of ficathons out there: General prompts or requests that are traded, the remix, and using quotes or lyrics. I've given this some thought after reading comments/suggestions and noticing which way the polls were blowing. ;)

So... this one is going to cover them all because Farscape characters come from all walks of life and so do its fans. What I've decided was to allow each participant to work with what is comfortable to them when they receive their assignment and hopefully each person involved will get a fic they'll be very happy with in the end. Hopefully there will be far less freaking and fretting this way (at least from me). :D

What does that mean?

- You comment here using the format below.
- You make your request, pick your favorite quote or lyric, and if you've written more than three fics - link to your fic archive. This gives each person a choice on the type of story he or she will write once they receive their assignment.
- If you have not written three or more fics in the past - please put "Opt Out" next to Remix to let me know. You are still allowed to participate in the ficathon using the remaining two methods, but this will make matching you far easier.

Comments will be screened.

ETA: I switched the comments to be viewable because I wasn't getting notified when a new one came in and it was driving me nuts! :D

Signups Begin: Today (June 19th)

Signups End: Thursday (June 28th)

I'll have assignments out that Sunday. (July 1st)

To Be Posted In Comments

Name, e-mail and LJ or blog address if you have one:
Requests (up to three):
Remix - Link to your fic:
-- Safe story: (any story you do not want remixed)

These do no apply to the remix stories:

Pairing/Other Character (if any - this doesn't have to mean sex):
Setting request:
Prop request (i.e. - Farscape module):
One restriction (meaning the thing that'll make you stab your eyes out with a spork if it appears in the story. But folks, be nice-ish:):
Ratings (meaning what you're comfortable with):
What I won't write - one restriction: (think carefully about this folks - remember this is Farscape)
Pitch hit:

Also, please make sure and notate what you have and haven't seen (ie: the miniseries) so as not to get spoiled.

Remix stories (I'm riffing on remixredux's guidelines here):

- Basic plotline and pairing(s) must remain the same as in the original story.

If you're not sure about an exact quote or lyric they're pretty easy to Google, but here's some links to help:

Brainy Quotes
Quote World
Think Exist
A-Z Lyrics

If you have any questions or notice if I've messed something up please comment here or email me at kazbaby13 at yahoo dot com.

Thank you to everyone that has participated in my polls and given suggestions/tips. I really appreciate the input.

Please use caution in wording your requests in case there are those that have not seen all of the series. Thanks.
