I actually wrote my Remix Redux 11 fic and turned it in early (thanks [livejournal.com profile] jezziejay!), but the stories won't be revealed until Sunday. By coincidence(?), that is also the deadline for Remix Madness, a free-for-all in which you can remix any story from any fandom not forbidden by the requesting author. Here's a link to my sign-up page in case any of you are interested in remixing one of my fics!

Either your link to your sign up doesn't work or AO3 hates me - it says 'you are not allowed to do that'.

ETA - I forgot to say, I defied AO3's instructions and found it anyway under prompts :)

Drat! I guess I can only follow that link because I created the request. There doesn't seem to be a way to link directly to a particular request otherwise.

Congrats on finding a way to beat the system ;).

I couldn't get there either. I did wander around their FAQ a little,though. Enough to confuse myself. Do you know what a "safe" fic is?

You can designate one fic that you don't want anyone to remix. That is your "safe" fic.

Apparently I can't link to my specific request, so one would have to wander through the prompts until one happened to stumble upon my name. Bah, humbug.

I don't have menolly's computer savvy, so I couldn't get in either...I am curious about what fics you have offered for remix. Some? All?

And having really enjoyed your remix, I'm looking forward to reading a few more.

I offered all of my fics for remix. But you have to find my prompt in order to fulfill it (submit a remix fic).

I still remember the first remix I ever read, and still the most awesome one to date. It was bironic's Alexander Pope remix of a fairly ordinary House & Wilson get drunk fic - in iambic pentameter!

I found it!! Well, Menolly found it for me.

Iambic pentameter...I should read that, despite my inability to relate to most poetry!!

So, I think someone has already made a claim on one of your fics????

Actually, might be heroic couplets - is that different? But it's hilarious! http://remixredux08.livejournal.com/47063.html

It's heroic couplets. Iambic pentameter doesn't have to rhyme. I have no idea what induced the Augustans to go for couplets -- I think couplets sound hilarious rather than heroic, but maybe that's just me. The fic -- sorry, epic poem -- is great, absolutely great, and in this case couplets totally fit.

Dang -- I'm definitely too late for this. There's no way I can write anything in less than a week.

Nope! Inspiration at the moment - I have none.

No? Perhaps I have a secret admirer. lol

And I know what you mean. I don't know yet whether I'm going to fulfill any prompts myself...

It's currently at this page although it's near the bottom so as more people sign up it will slip back to page 3. You have to sign up yourself to do a remix.

Good point - I'd forgotten about that. Offering your fics to be remixed does not obligate you to write anything, however.
