We've had some questions pop up in the last couple days re: nominations, and they are ones which require participant input. If you are likely to request or offer any of these fandoms at sign-ups, we would greatly appreciate your comments. As always, mods will have final say, but we want to make informed decisions.

  1. The Hunger Games: Currently, there is a nomination for "Hunger Games Series - All Media Types." If we accept this as-is, then anyone who has written a combination of book-based and movie-based stories which meet our matching criteria is eligible to use this fandom for requests. However, anyone who offers to remix this fandom must be prepared to write a remix for stories which may be based on the books or may be based on the films.

    Neither of the mods are familiar enough with the books or films to know whether there are significant differences between the two media types that would make it difficult-to-impossible for someone familiar with one to remix a story based on the other. If there are not significant differences, we would be amenable to accepting the nomination as-is rather than requiring separate nominations for "Hunger Games Series - Suzanne Collins" and "Hunger Games Series - Movies."


  2. Star Wars: At this point, the only Star Wars film currently nominated is Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, we had a query about whether the films would be taken as solo films, as separate series (IE, prequels, original trilogy, new series), or as a single umbrella fandom. We are leaning toward accepting these as separate series, with The Force Awakens as a one-off since the challenge will end before any more films are released. We would also be willing to accept the films as an umbrella fandom if there is a consensus among participants.

Nominations are clicking along well, but we need clarification about two pending nominations:

  • Hunger Games Series - All Media Types
  • Les Misérables - All Media Types


To the people who nominated these fandoms: We need you to specify whether you are nominating the books, or the films and/or theatrical performances based on them. We have neither accepted nor rejected these nominations at this point, so you may edit them, or you can leave a comment here with the specific media type you want and we will change your nomination.

Thank you!

The FemmeRemix 2016 tagset is now up and nominations are now live.

Please only nominate fandoms in which you have written three or more stories of 500 words or more OR five stories of 100 words or more about or involving canonical female characters. This is to help us streamline matching.

As a reminder, here are the rules regarding crossovers and megafandoms:

For the purpose of matching, stories which require knowledge of one or more canons are considered crossovers. This includes most instances where two canons take place within the same universe, though there are some exceptions.

Example: You have written three 500-word stories that use characters from both Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion. You do not qualify in either fandom because we cannot guarantee that you will match on both Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion.

The biggest exception to this rule is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has multiple interrelated canons. To simplify the MCU as best as possible while still allowing for the prolific overlap of many of these canons, we have divided it thusly:

The Avengers (Marvel Movies) — Includes all stories involving characters who are currently part of the Avengers team: Ant Man, Avengers 1-2, Iron Man 1-3, Captain America 1-3, and Thor 1-2.
Daredevil (TV)
Agent Carter (TV) — Includes both the TV show and the short film.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV)
Guardians of the Galaxy (Movies)
Jessica Jones (TV)

All stories for the collection are in, so the collection is live! You should receive a gift notification in your inbox shortly.

If there is not a remix of your work in the collection, please contact the mods at femmeremix@gmail.com immediately and we will take care of it!

Thanks once again to everyone for participating; we hope you'll join us again when we do this next year!

All stories are posted and accounted for, save one, which due to uncontrollable circumstances has been delayed. Therefore, the collection will remain open for edits until it arrives. Once it has been added to the collection, we'll reveal stories, though authors will remain anonymous until next Thursday.

Thank you all for your patience and participation!

All pinch-hits are claimed now!

Also, if you do not appear to have a gift yet, do not panic! There were about ten stories that were either pinch-hits or granted extensions, so your story should appear at some point between tonight and tomorrow evening (EDT).

There is an outside chance that we will have emergency pinch-hits going out tomorrow night, but if everything arrives when it should, we will have story reveals on Thursday as scheduled!

I'll be reopening the collection for pinch-hit submissions and to allow edits in just a few minutes, but we have three unclaimed pinch-hits remaining. Story reveals will happen only after all stories are in, so the faster these get claimed, the more likely we're able to do reveals on schedule. The requests are as follows:

- Pinch Hit 5: Glee, MCU, X-Men First Class, Supernatural CLAIMED

- Pinch Hit 6: MCU, Leverage, Pacific Rim CLAIMED

- Pinch Hit 7: MCU, Supernatural, CW Network RPF CLAIMED

If you are interested/able to remix any of these (or if you know someone who wants to do so), please contact the mods immediately at femmeremix@gmail.com with your AO3 name and the pinch-hit you want.

Rebloggable version is available here.

Thank you!

ALL CLAIMED!

All outstanding remixes that have not been granted extensions will be defaulted and sent out as pinch-hits momentarily!

ETA: The collection will remain closed until approximately 8AM EDT. It will reopen for pinch-hit submissions and edits then!

We will be closing the collection in a little over an hour, so if you are waiting until the last minute to upload your fic, please do so now! If our spreadsheet is correct, all but a handful of stories are accounted for.

This is also your last chance to request an extension--any unfilled assignments will be going to the pinch-hit list. If both you and your remixer have defaulted, we will not be sending your name to the pinch-hit list.

Thank you!

Just a reminder that there are about TEN hours until the collection closes.

Again, if you need an extension, please contact the mods at femmeremix@gmail.com IMMEDIATELY. If you do not contact the mods before the deadline, you will be defaulted and your remixee will go to pinch-hits.

Also, if you default AND your remixer defaults as well, you will not go to pinch-hits.

If you have your story saved in drafts, we need you to officially publish it before we can count it as received. Right now there are about five stories saved as drafts; we cannot access them until they are published, therefore we cannot accept them as complete.

The collection will be closed tonight at midnight EDT and reopen sometime in the morning (probably around 8:00 AM EDT) so pinch-hitters will be able to post. You will have an opportunity to make SPAG edits or tweaks before reveals, so if you are waiting for your beta, please go ahead and post so your story gets counted as complete!



I will make a final reminder post this evening about an hour before the collection closes.

Hello everyone! You have approximately 35 hours until the deadline! The collection will close at midnight EDT tomorrow night. So far we have about 20 stories in the collection, so we are almost halfway there!

All pinch-hits from here on out are due at midnight (11:59 PM) EDT on August 5. We currently have one outstanding pinch-hit which needs to be claimed. If you or anyone you know is interested in writing for Books of the Raksura (Martha Wells) or Stargate Atlantis, please contact the mods at femmeremix@gmail.com immediately!

If you have posted your story as a draft, we need you to publish it before the deadline tomorrow so that it does not go to pinch-hits.

And finally, if you are at crunch-time but you know that you will be able to finish your story before reveals on August 6, please contact us immediately via femmeremix@gmail. We are willing to work with you, especially if it means fewer pinch-hits.

Thank you all, and good luck with your stories!

Hello all! This is just an informal check-in/reminder that stories are due in TWO WEEKS AND TWO DAYS.

This means if you are considering dropping out, now would be a good time to do so to allow pinch-hitters more time to write! This also means that if you have not started writing your story, now would be a good time to go do that.

ALSO, we still have an outstanding pinch-hit for the following fandoms:

Once Upon a Time (TV)
Poltergeist: The Legacy
The Wicked Years Series - Gregory Maguire
Babylon 5
E.R.

If you are interested in writing in any of those or if you would like the complete list of fandoms this remixee has written, please contact the mods via email at femmeremix at gmail!

And if you are interested in picking up a pinch-hit and have not already signed up for our pinch-hit list, you can do that here!

Matching is mostly going well, but we've hit a couple of snags in the process. If you or anyone you know are able to write any of the following fandoms, please contact us via email (femmeremix at gmail).

  • Dexter
  • Haikyuu!!
  • Parks and Rec


You do not have to be signed up for the remix proper to volunteer for these fandoms, so please spread the word among your friends!

As soon as we have viable remixers for everyone, assignments will go out!

ETA: Here is a rebloggable version for tumblr.

ETA2: We have someone to write Parks and Rec. We are still looking for people to write Haikyuu and Dexter.

ETA3: By request in the comments: The person who has requested Dexter has also written for Once Upon a Time and Hannibal, as well as crossovers for Doctor Who/Battlestar Galactica and Dexter/Sherlock. The person who has requested Haikyuu has only written for it.

We have 47 sign-ups, and we'll get cracking on matching in the (US) morning. Assignments should go out sometime on Sunday, though if matching goes smoothly, they may go out tomorrow.

Once assignments are out, we'll set up the pinch-hit sign-ups post.
