POLL: Qualifying Fandoms

[Eventually I will work out the kinks and quit posting about qualifying fandoms so damn much. Hopefully this post will help to alleviate that.]

Now polling for potential qualifying fandoms. Anticipated sign-up dates are May 1-7, with stories due July 1. (These dates are not definite, but the remix will not start any earlier than that due to real-life commitments I have and to give interested writers plenty of time to make sure they qualify.)

This is not the definitive list. It is based on the fandoms most often mentioned in the preliminary posts at my DW and femmeremix. There is an option to add other fandoms in which you qualify.

Qualifying means that you have written at least THREE stories with female characters of 500+ words or FIVE stories with female characters of 100+ words in that fandom.

Official poll is HERE.

Do you mean "you've written at least THREE stories with female characters of 500+ words IN THE FANDOMS YOU NAMED"?

Or do you mean "you've written at least THREE stories with female characters of 500+ words, PERIOD"?

Yes, it does! Thank you!

About the wild-card option. If we're matched on a fandom we don't know, how do we remix? Are we supposed to take the premise of the story and adapt it to a fandom/female character we know?

How are crossovers handled? I have one crossover of exactly 500 words in which the female character is fused in her role in both fandoms (Kitty/Jen from Sherlock/IT Crowd). Can I count that towards Sherlock?

So ... the thirteen fandoms in the original list we can't count on?

You've split up DC movies into Batman and Superman? Darn! I don't qualify on either by themselves but I do on both together, and the main remix has them together.

There's also no option for "I don't qualify now but I will probably qualify for the deadline."

How long does the poll run? Because I want to get to where I qualify in October Daye before I answer the poll.

I suspect I know the answer to this but I'm asking anyway: a fic in the form of a limerick, where making it a hundred words long would make it cease to be a limerick. Can I count it as one of my fics to qualify? I doubt it, but I gotta ask.

That's what I thought. Thanks.

I can't retake the poll! I haven't posted any of the fics yet ([community profile] pt_lightning; they'll be up by the end of the month), but I now qualify in October Daye, and I can't retake the poll!

I took the poll, too. Now I can't see what the fandoms on the list are...and that unfortunately means that I don't know which to work on.

Thanks! The list will help!
