It gives me great pleasure to announce the 2011 following_sea Hornblower Remix Challenge!
What is a Remix?
In this ficathon, you will take a fanwork produced by somebody else and re-imagine it. You might change the POV, mood or dialogue, or you might turn a fic into a poem, fanvid or piece of art. Or vice versa, perhaps that fanvid might inspire you to write a story? You should keep the basic plot and pairing of the original though; otherwise, you're writing a new story, not remixing. The idea is to creatively play in your partner's "canon" to expose some new perspective in their work, while still respecting the basics of the original.
How does it work?
Sign up for the hornblowerremix comm and tell us where to find your fics, art or videos along with any preferences or restrictions you may have. We will assign each of you to remix the work of another participant. You then look at that person's body of work and select one piece to remix. These remixed versions will be posted to the comm on the deadline day.
ETA Just to clarify: if you want to participate, please sign up for the hornblowerremix comm and add your details to the sign up post here.
Sounds great! When's the deadline?
If you'd like to play please sign up on the comm by the 28th of February and we will assign a partner for you to remix by the 14th of March. The deadline for contributions to be submitted is the 4th of July. If you have any quesitons or queries about this challenge please don't hesitate to contact mylodon or anteros_lmc
Here's looking forward to some fabulous remixes!
