I went to the website and it looks like fun. One truly dumb question. What is the definition of "filk"?

PO1S


A "filk" is a song where the lyrics have been rewritten to make them about Firefly. Legend has it that someone once misprinted the phrase "folk song," and the term stuck.

O...kay, so does that mean "Yes, please submit your fan fic even though it's posted in the Blue Sun Room" or "No, we would prefer fresh fan fic that has yet to see the light of day."

This will determine what happens in my near future. I have a notion in mind, you see, but if I can finish editing Heartbroken and post it, that would be shiny too.

and try saying "fresh fan fic" once, let alone five times fast.

Oh - Hey, one more question.

Heartbroken comes with a ginourmous list of foreign language translations (Chinese, French, Cajun). How would you like them handled? At writer's discretion?

I'll say writer's discrection but if possible the best way to do them for the reader is to make them "foot notes" to each page.

In other words had the translations at the end of the page they're on.

I have a very dumn question - being new to all this and basically a sad and pathetic fanfic contest virgin...

Say we have produced a Fanfic in a few parts - do we submit the whole thing as one or do we need to chose a part (which is liekly to make little sense)???

Okay, I'm lost, I'm angry, and I'm

Couple questions:

Will all the entries be posted afterwards, or just the winners?

Any chance of a list of prizes, or is this a "for the fun of it" kind of thing. Makes no difference either way, just curious.

I actually plan to have all enteries avalible to for reading as they come in. I have a few already I just have to decide how I want to list them.

As for the Prizes, there are going to be prizes but I'm not sure exactly what, it'll be fun stuff like patches, buttons, key chains, and maybe a t-shirt or two. Once I decide and get all the prizes together I'll post up a list.

My question - what about "fan fiction" created by mutiple authors?

I am part of a writing collective that masquerades as an RPG - but we have about 13 authors working together to create one story. We have about 3 episodes worth of content right now.

Would this be acceptable?

As long as all parties agree to enter and the story has a "proper" ending it can be entered.

Hmm. I just sent an e-mail and it promptly bounced it back. It was wiccansly@aol.com

I want cheese cake too but instead of cheese cake, I want chocolate cake. And a BMW.

The Deadline was August 1st but due to renewed interest I'm pushing it back to Sept 1st.

I'll try to have the Site back up ASAP so that everyone can get all the info they need.
