Hello everyone,

thank you to those who took part in the poll I posted at the beginning of this week.

Unfortunately only 8 people expressed interest in participating in Fic Games. As this is a team challenge, where 3 teams should be formed, 8 potential participants means we would not even have 3 members in each team. To mods, this signals there is too little interest for Fic Games to be run and to be fun.

Moreover, I have taken into consideration the very little general participation in fandom fic events. When I look at the last general exchange - FQF, in general the only people who seem to be interested in the fics are their recipients. This has been a trend lately. Fic Games as such is built not only on writing fic, but then on reading them and voting for them. With current situation, this part of Fic Games too would most likely be ineffective.

Therefor, Fic Games 2013 WILL NOT RUN.

Mods are not giving up on the event though. I will stay optimistic and hope that a year of break for several exchanges will give us all more enthusiasm for the year to come. I will poll for interest next year as well, and hopefully Fic Games will come back just like it did last year. Until then, recharge!

Dear gamers,

before the referee makes the final decision, it is necessary to hear the voice of reason (or voice of masses, you chose). There is a huge slump in JE fic, and many exchanges has stopped running or suffered drastic drop in participation. While Fic Games isn’t an exchange, mods fear the same faith. Especially since for Fic Games to be fun, there should be several members in each team. Thus, here is the poll time!

Poll #1928697 Fic Games 2013

I have serious interest in participating in Fic Games 2013 as a writer.

Yes
9(81.8%)
No
2(18.2%)


The schedule would be quite similar to last year, with assignments going up at the beginning of September and due date for submissions at the end of October. Please answer honestly and direct people who are interested to the poll as well.

If you have anything else to say, please do not hesitate to comment on this entry or email us.

Title: Sands of love; Hourglass of our lives
Pairing/Group: Tamamori/Fujigaya (Kis-My-Ft2)
Rating: PG
Warnings: Minor language.
Summary: Tamamori believes in magic and finds something special in Fujigaya.
Notes: I feel strangely proud that there is not a single reference to Tinkerbell or horrendously sparkly costumes 8Db

To wait until all the mysteries are unfolded.Collapse )

Title: Cross The Line
Pairing/Group: Ueda/Nakamaru bff-ery, KAT-TUN, Nishikido.
Rating: R
Warnings: drugs use, angst.
Summary: It starts with a break-up. Ueda's world crumbles.
Notes: It's far from the original idea, and very angsty. Sorry.

Ueda would like to say that it started with Akanishi leaving, but it didn’t.Collapse )

Title: Tales of a Psychiatric Patient
Pairing/Group: Kanjani8, KAT-TUN, NEWS, with apparences of Yamashita, Akanishi, Nagase, Inagaki, Kusano, Koyama/Ryo (friendship), Ryo/Shige (friendship; patient/psychiatrist), Ryo/Ueda
Rating: PG-15
Warnings: mental illnesses
Summary: The difference between sane and insane can’t be truthfully defined.
Nishikido Ryo, age: twenty-seven, disorder: schizophrenia. Date admitted: October 29th; stay period: unknown.
What you hear about mental institutions aren’t always what it appears, it’s not all smiles and trying to help. Nishikido could tell you that. And it isn’t all depressing and rude doctors either. It’s like a community with all different types of people who just live their lives as best they can.
Notes: So N-chan sent me a study a month or so ago, called: On Being Sane in Insane Places. It was a very interesting study that I felt matched my prompt perfectly. All parts indicated by a single asterisk (*) are from the book which can be read here.

Title: Rumour Has It
Pairing/Group: Kame/Anne
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Summary: Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Similarly, where there are onions, there are tears.
Notes: This fic is built on a lot of quotes and tidbits from magazines and video interviews, but I hope it can be enjoyed nonetheless. ^^ And a big thank you to my beta.

Title: Zero Gravity
Pairing/Group: Ryo/Ueda friendship, Kame/Ohkura; Kanjani8/KAT-TUN + assorted females
Rating: PG
Warnings: lots of married-with-children, extreme liberties taken with the tolerance of Japan, and everyone cross-dressing. Oh, and KAT-TUN are broken up, sorry.
Summary: Ohkura finally ties the knot.
Notes: Self-indulgence mixed with guilt makes for a clusterfuck of whatever this is. All my love to my teammates, my beta, and the mods, without whom this wouldn't have happened. ♥

Title: The cunning ways
Pairing/Group: Ryo/Ueda, cameos of the rest of KAT-TUN
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: silly boys
Summary: In his apartment building, Ueda is much more famous for the pretty girls leaving his flat every odd morning than for his songwriting.
Notes: 7794 words. Thank you to my beta and to all the helpers for pushing me towards the finish line ♥

You're ruining my reputation!Collapse )
