Major Character Death Fest - athene — LiveJournal
Major Character Death Fest

So... I signed up for mcdfest, aka Major Character Death Fest. In my defence, it was clea2011's fault, she willfully and knowingly reblogged the tumblr announcement and waved it in my direction, and even mentioned me in the tags. Although to be fair, once I'd seen the announcement, I was *highly restrained* and thought about it for all of 25 minutes before I signed up.

I already know exactly what fic I want to write, because I've had the idea for a while and just haven't quite dared to write it. My only worry is that I won't be able to make it stretch to the minimum word count of 10k. It's not due for a few months yet, so I'm also hoping I will be able to combine it with my round 7 hurt/comfort bingo card in some way.

It's also open to artists as well as writers. So, if you're in the mood to be evil and make the entire fandom wail at you, go check it out! :-)

I've somehow managed to sign up for this one too! ;-)

And I don't even have the defence of someone waving it in my direction... just saw the Tumblr post and jumped right in. I swore I wouldn't be signing up for anything else for a while too.

Oh well. I've never actually managed to kill off a main character before (although I've come darned close at times) so it might be interesting - either that or no-one will ever speak to me again!

It was lovely to meet you at WCC the other week by the way and finally putting a face to the name and fics :-) Oh, and I'm still chuffed you recognised the cosplay - no-one's ever done that before.

Yeah, I saw you'd signed up. Poor Atlantis fandom, they won't know what's hit them on posting day!

I've definitely killed Hercules, and I have a fic where it's heavily implied that Jason dies about two seconds after the end of the fic, although since we never see the body you *could* argue he might have survived. And I've killed Herc and Pyth 'offscreen' as it were in a memory. But they were all shortish fics. Actually doing a really long fic where the death is the entire point/main focus is a different matter entirely.

Yes, it's always good to meet people and put faces to online names! And the cosplay was great! :-)

Go on... you know you want to! *evil grin*

Do you know if the mcdfest is still going on because all the sign ups seem to have been deleted?

I'm still going to write what I was planning (insert evil grin here) but if there's no deadline I might take my time over it.

I see what you mean. Not just the sign ups - every single entry on the comm has gone as far as I can see. I wonder if the tumblr has gone as well? I certainly hadn't heard anything about it being cancelled, and I had been wondering about the lack of posts reminding people about the first check in next week.

Well, I suppose that means I don't have to worry about the check in deadline, but it is annoying. I might still try to write my fic anyway, as the new h/c bingo round starts soon and my fic might fit any one of several prompts.
