Welcome to Arthur & Guinevere Fan Fiction Contest Community, dedicated to the legendary Arthur & Guinevere from BBC's Merlin
ag_fics is a community where fans of Arthur and Guinevere (Gwen) in BBC’s Merlin can enter fics in different challenges. Readers then vote on their favourite entries. Want to introduce yourself to the COMM, then please do so in our INTRODUCTION POST.
| General rules |
Please read the rules carefully before joining/watching the community.
• This is a fanfiction community for the pairing Arthur/Gwen in BBC Merlin. The mods will not tolerate ANY form actor and/or character bashing. • You do NOT have to be a member to participate or vote in any of the challenges. However we recommend it in order to keep up-to-date with the community. • Be respectful of other people's fanfiction/work; no flaming, no cheating and no stealing. • Be nice to each other; no insulting or harassing any other members of the community. • Posts, comments and (of course) fan fiction submissions for memes and challenges MUST be relevant. Anything non-related to Arthur/Gwen or Merlin will be removed. • This community is SPOILER-FREE. We do not accept fics based on spoilers (i.e. S4 set reports etc.) Speculation fics are welcome, though.
Failure to follow these rules and/or continuous disrespectful behaviour will result in you being banned from the community. No excuses.
| Challenge Information |
The Mini Challenge
An Anonymous posting of prompts and Comment!fic responses (from members and non-members) over a number of days. Voting begins the day after prompts/entries close, whereupon all fics will be collected, (numbered) and posted by a Mod in one post for easy voting. At no point will we require anyone to De-Anon. Anon-writers who place, will be awarded a banner with their fic title on it, and Writers who DO choose to claim their fic will have their username on their banner.
Timeframe for entries: up to 4 days (subject to change). Timeframe for voting: 3 days.
The Short Challenge
The classic ag_fics format, entries will be collected over two weeks. Entered by writers to the comm email address [email@example.com] before the set closing date and time. This will be followed by voting over the next four days and concluding in a Winners & Reveal post. There is a 3,500 Word Limit imposed on all SCs.
Timeframe for entries: 2 weeks Timeframe for voting: 4 days
The Long Challenge
Writers will be given a month to write to all considerations put to them (i.e. certain things that must appear in their fic to avoid disqualification) with no maximum Word Limit. Entries will again go to the Comm email address [firstname.lastname@example.org] before the closing date and time. Voting will be adjusted accordingly to suit the number of words and entries received by participants, and this again will be followed by a Winners & Reveal post.
Timeframe for entries: 1 month Timeframe for voting: 1 week+
