2008 Triath-a-Ron [Feb. 17th, 2008|06:43 pm]
Triatha_Ron Team Slash

[Current Mood |aggravatedaggravated]

I am choosing not to participate in this year's Triath-a-Ron. I'm not comfortable with the people who are running it.

I am the creator/maintainer of this comm, and I want to turn it over to whomever would like to take it on. All y'all are fabulous writers, and I wish you the best of luck in your endeavor.

Go Team Slash!

Well, Team Slash, we're down to the final day. Mine will be the last of our team's submissions. It's NOT an enviable position to be in, believe me.

I have to admit I never saw the popularity of Ron/Neville. By my count (and my maths is about as good as Jo's) five fics with Neville; three each with Harry (and 1/2 of one) and Draco (one with a trio with Viktor), one each with Seamus, Snape, James and Bill. Mine features Oliver.

The overall tone has been dark throughout the three teams. Egads. What's been your impression?

My fellow slashers, it's been real. We must have a pub night. Drinks and drabbles all around!

I hope you all don’t mind, but I’m borrowing this comm as a place to post my musings and ramblings about the triatha_ronCollapse )

Finished! Praise the lord, I am finished at last! :) Unfortunately, it's not as good as I would have liked :( But oh well. I suck at deadlines.

How is everyone else doing? I have complete faith in our team. :D Go team slash!

Beta? [Feb. 15th, 2007|03:53 pm]
Triatha_Ron Team Slash

I asked for beta help from my personal flist, but I figured I'd ask here, too. I'm willing to beta-swap, if you like. Or bake you scones. Or just publicly proclaim your awesomeness.

My fic is Harry/Ron war/post-war, angst and a whole lot of ramble. I am quite sure it sucks (is there a point in this fic? Somewhere? Probably not), but at this point it'll have to do, so we're talking general SPaG corrections/suggestions and salvage, not complete overhaul. I'd like to have it back by, say, Monday night (US Eastern) at the latest, so I can fix it by the deadline. Fic is ~8000 words/17 Word pages, with a few light R spots and otherwise PGish.

Anyone? Or is everyone too busy frantically finishing their own stories?

Sooooo....Team Slash! How goes it? Is the writing going well, so-so or not at all?

I must confess, I'm in the not-at-all category. A bit stuck. I think I may have found my *hook* today that will save my concept, but I'm still not writing.

It's okay. I get this way, and then I vomit up the story all in one sitting. It's an awful way to write, but sometimes I do my best work when the OMGFEAR!DEADLINELOOMS! feeling sets in.

Anything any of us can assist you with? Coffee? Chocolate?

Carry on.

Help. [Jan. 23rd, 2007|12:32 pm]
Triatha_Ron Team Slash

Late to the party - only discovered yesterday that I'd been chosen for this darn thing at all, because, for whatever reason, I didn't get any notification email and therefore assumed I didn't get chosen.

Anyway - I got Gold as the prompt; I could do something money-oriented, but that feels too obvious for Ron. Instead, last night, as I was going to sleep, I thought of Robert Frost's poem.

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Whaddya think? Would this be interesting to people? It would imply, I think, that whatever relationship Ron is in comes to an end by the end of the story. I usually ship H/R for Ron!slash, but it's hard to think of a reason why they'd break up. :P Anyone have any good ideas here? Harry just withdrawing into himself, perhaps, and shutting Ron out? Something happening to Harry, leaving Ron 'widowed', so to speak? Incidentally, I'm competing against emmagrant01 (Team Gen) and am having a hard time not just throwing in the towel straight away. :P

So, gang. The prompts have been posted.

Now, if you're unhappy with yours, give it a few days and allow your fertile mind to ruminate over it. If you're still unhappy, we can trade around here in the comm.

I think we've pretty much decided to let the muse run our writings (which is the way it should be), so we shall NOT write Ron with a different character for the sake of diversity.

Do we want to post who we are writing Ron with once we start going, and plot points we might want help with? I've recruited magicofisis, my own very helpful, very fast beta for the comm. She's a Ron/Harry kinda gal, but hell, she betas my Harry/Hermione for me whilst holding her nose. :D
If you have a beta reader you think would agree to help out, then please encourage them to join.

*nope, still not the mod*

If you haven't seen the look of the comm, go have a look!  And then thank the lovely and talented <lj user=mamalaz> for creating a unique headline banner for us.

We also need y'all to pimp the Triatha-Ron on your LJs to find new team members, and not just for Team Slash (though, if you have a favorite slash author who hasn't signed up, go poke them).  I think Team Slash has 5 openings.  Signups run through Monday.

OH, and I'm not the mod here.  We're all in this boat together.

This is the inaugural entry for this comm.

Obviously, I cannot do graphic design to save my soul, so I'm calling on my teammates to help out. Please....

Okay, Team Slash, this is the place for us to discuss strategy and give each other support and cheer each other on and provide plot bunnies when the Muse deserts us and beta read and generally make this the best team ever!

I look forward to playing with you all.

Go Team Slash!
