Sign-ups are open

Sign-ups for Missy This Fic 2017 are now open:

Sign-up form on AO3

(If you need an AO3 account, you can request one here.)

Sign-ups will remain open until 8pm GMT on Thursday, 10th August. (When is that in my time zone?)

To sign up for this fest, you must have written at least three remixable fics of at least 500 words each for your remixer to choose from. To count as "remixable" these three fics
  • must be set in the same version of Doctor Who canon - for example, New Who, Old Who, Torchwood, Sarah Jane Adventures, Class, ...
  • must be posted publicly and must be easy to find for your remixer (have a link to a masterlist of your Doctor Who fic ready if you don't post your fic on AO3, please)
  • must be complete (no works in progress)
  • can't be crossovers or fusions with non-Doctor Who fandoms
  • should stand on their own (one shots that form a series are fine, as long as they can be truly read and remixed on their own merit)
  • should not be co-written with anyone, or previously written remixes of other people's work
For reference, here are the full Rules & FAQ.


Here you need to choose the canons that you have written the appropriate amount of eligible fic in and that your remixer will be matched to you on. So all Doctor Who universes you’ve written the required amount of eligible fic for that is not a WIP or crossover can be chosen from among the AO3 canonical tags in the fandom section.

Under "fandoms", please enter all Whovian fandoms you are remixable in.

Under "Link to my fic", please link to the place where your Doctor Who fic is accessible to your remixer.

Under "Details", please fill out the following information using this template (you can copy it directly from the textbox below):

Pairings: (list all pairings you have written at least 3 qualifying fics for)
Characters: (list all characters you have written at least 3 qualifying fics for)
Safe Story: (here you can specify ONE story that you don’t want remixed - you can also specify that you have no safe story)
Previous Remixes: Information about/list of or link to list of previously written remixes)
Are you fine with Missy being included in existing pairings/shipped with the characters in the resulting fic?


Here you can enter all the canon versions, pairings and characters you’d like to write a remix for. So everything you’re good to read and remix goes here.

Under "fandoms", please enter all Whovian fandoms you’re willing to write.

Under "Details", please list all pairings and/or characters you're willing to work with. "Any gen", "any m/m", "any f/f", "any m/f", "any poly" are also allowed, if you're feeling adventurous!

Please also mention if you have characters and pairings you want to avoid at all costs. We’ll try to take it into account.

Please use this template (you can copy it directly from the textbox below):

Pairings: (list all pairings you’re willing to write a remix for)
Characters: (list all characters you’re willing to write a remix for)
Characters/pairings to avoid: (list characters or pairings you definitely do not want to remix)

Requests are visible on AO3 - you can look at them here.

Please direct all the questions about signing up to the comments on this post.

Psst, the link to the requests page isn't working for me. Probably an unclosed HTML tag or a missing character or something somewhere?

In addition, I'd like to just express my joy again that this is happening, even if I probably can't sign up at this point! I hope you get many sign-ups and have fun! I'll be following and eagerly looking forward to the results. :-)

Aww, thanks. It all depends on how quickly I watch! If I suddenly binge through S7 and find myself at S8 so I have more than S10 to go on her, who knows, I might! Though it might be helpful if I had more fics out that wouldn't be a headache to add Missy into. (Though Missy suddenly barging in on Jack and Nine flirting could be fun, I'm sure. Just odd. Okay, now I'm trying to figure out how it'd work out...)

You know, you two still have nine days to talk me into this. This might be dangerous. :-D

And I suppose I could always make sure it's S10 era Missy that I write into it. A little complicated as she spends most of it in a vault, but...

[personal profile] auroracloud 2017-08-05 10:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, the possibilities... (Besides, Missy should survive S10 without regenerating. There needs to be more Missy. Not that her final scene wasn't awesome. But still. Especially with Thirteen on the way, Missy needs to be Not Gone.)

That is the fun of show that plays with time and space. XD I just want to throw everyone into every era all the time.

Next up: Ultimate remix where you do just that! Well, maybe not everyone at the same time 'cause that would get crowded.

You know there was never a DW specific remix. Maybe there should be one where this is a possibility. Maybe... not right now, but I'd love to run something like it.

If it happens, I'm game!

(Theoretically, I could even consider helping at modding or something. Even though I've never done any modding before. 'Cause it would just be really cool if it happened.)

There was, possibly even more than one, as this was a later fest: dw_remix

Oh, cool! Never heard of it though. Thanks for linking. :)

I hope it runs again then! Looks like it didn't come together last year?

No, but the mod is still around - you could always comment at the comm to ask if she's thinking of running it again. She might well if there's an interest.

Sign-ups will remain open until 8pm GMT on Tuesday, 10th August.

... should that be Tues 8th August or Thursday 10th August? (Or are we actually time-travelling?)

Say, um, if I were to plan to participate, let me just check: I'll be eligible if I have three fics fulfilling the requirements in any one Whovian fandom, for example New Who or Torchwood? But if I'm to list a pairing, I need to have written three fics for that pairing? So if I have three New Who fics and three Torchwood fics, but they're all different pairings (or at most two per pairing), then I'm eligible but can't list a pairing? But can list a character who is in at least three fics? And do different incarnations of the Doctor count for different characters/pairings in this? (I'm just wondering if Jack/Doctor counts if I have two Jack/Nine and one Jack/Ten.)

[personal profile] navaan 2017-08-09 08:54 pm (UTC)(link)

You need to have three fics in total and then you can list all pairings and characters (for gen) that you've written eligible fic for, so that we know what to match you on, so preferably those you have three fics for.

Jack/Doctor or Doctor/Master or Doctor/River etc would all count as "one" pairing in any case, even if different generations were involved. So you're set!:D

All right, thanks for the clarification! Um, I think you two have talked me into participating. Maybe I should do the sign-up tonight so I don't miss it in case I get Worldcon-busy tomorrow.
navaan: (DW TardisinSpace)

[personal profile] navaan 2017-08-09 09:01 pm (UTC)(link)

Haha! I'm very excited to hear it!!!

And have fun with Worldcon!! That is also so exciting!

I signed up! I signed up!

My Torchwood Jack/Ianto fic isn't up on AO3 yet (it is on [community profile] torchwood_fest) but I will get it up soon.
