We have moved the art hosting to imgur (the album is here) and have replaced all the links. So please: check your ao3 posts and make sure that all the art is in the right place! We are only human and mistakes can happen. Here's a handy link to the 2016 ao3 collection for quick access.

Hello everybody!

In light of recent events, we're in the process of moving the fest community to dreamwidth. The community can be found here: rs_collab. (DW is quite busy right now, so the import is not complete as of this moment.)

All the art from the 2016 round of the fest is currently hosted on the mod LJ scrapbook. We are looking into new hosting so that in the event that LJ implodes/LJ takes down the art for being offensive queer content/whatever, the art won't disappear from ao3. However if our participants would like to use their own hosting, they're very welcome to do so! Please drop us a line if you do, as that takes a lot of pressure off us.

When the fest returns in 2018 (knock wood) it'll do so at the dreamwidth community.

- Your friendly neighbourhood mods

Hello everyone!

Instead of announcing the 2017 timeline, I'm here to tell you that we have decided to take a break. For several reasons, including the mods' own personal reasons, we have decided this is for the best. We are very sorry, but hope you understand.

We will be back in 2018!

In the meantime, check out the [livejournal.com profile] rs_games masterlist (voting just ended so reveals & awards will be up soon!) and watch the [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts space for upcoming treats.

Reveals!

First of all, we want to thank everyone who participated in the 2016 round of [livejournal.com profile] rs_collab - you have all been fabulous and creative, and without you, this fest wouldn't have been. It certainly wouldn't have been as varied, interesting, funny, touching...you name it, you've got it, and it has been wonderful. ♥

We also want to thank everyone who commented and recced so far! Thank you for supporting this fest and helping to make it a success. We are forever grateful. ♥

Now, on to the reveals!

"In potion making, certain ingredients have a particular affinity, making them more effective in combination.

A record of various potions attempted by Remus and Sirius at different points in their lives - many of them disastrous, but at least one works like a charm.

Team members: [livejournal.com profile] cmajalis, [livejournal.com profile] dustmouth, [livejournal.com profile] epithalamium & [livejournal.com profile] nerak_rose

Comic: A Month in the Life of Sad Spinster Sirius Black: In Which he Unwittingly Stars in a Sexy Mechanic Soft Porno (except, not really)

And that concludes the posting for the 2016 round of [livejournal.com profile] rs_collab!

We've had a blast with all these wonderful submissions and can't wait to tell you who's behind each and every one - but that'll have to wait for a bit. In the meantime, we've put together the anonymous masterlist for your perusal. We've been seeing a lot of amazing comments, which is thrilling (and humbling!), and we hope you'll continue to take the time until the reveals to check out collaborations that you haven't yet checked out, and leave them some love. ♥

Notes: One of the artists traced a car instead of drawing one. They apologise. Another artist definitely also traced a car. They also apologise. (Cars are hard.) A third artist came out of the woodwork and also admitted to tracing a car. That leaves one upstanding specimen of the human race on the team. The final artist wishes that they had known about all this car tracing business earlier- or better yet, that they could remember who came up with all of this car nonsense in the first place... All the artists would like to thank the mods for the extension! Much appreciated. We had a tremendous amount of fun creating this and couldn't have had a better team. *circle-jerk back-patting ensues* P.S. This is really not a soft porno. P.P.S. Really.

A massive thank you to the artist for being so willing and wonderful at making this writer's dream come true! The artist would also like to thank the writer, without whom, this would have been a confused mess on the floor. It has been a long labour of love, and I can't think of anyone better to have been slipping words underneath my pictures.

Hello everyone!

On a scale from
to
How are you all doing?

Still in the planning stage? Halfway through putting together your final product? Is everything sweet roses or are there shifty cogs in the machinery? Whatever you'd like to share with us, we'd love to hear it!

We're pretty chill about the check-in, so no forms to fill out or anything. We'd just like each team to drop by in the comments (which are screened) within the next week and let us know how it's going. No need to write us a novel, but a heads up would be much appreciated!

Claiming is here!

Each team can claim up to two tropes. You can claim one trope from one of the lists, or you can claim one trope from each list.

It is allowed to incorporate other tropes in the final work! However, the trope(s) that each team claims must be the main trope(s) of the work.

There's no cap on how many times a trope can be claimed. If everybody picks the same trope, we aren't going to stand in your way... we are just going to look forwards to all the different takes!

Comments are screened for the sake of anonymity.

For trope explanations, if needed, tvtropes has almost everything. In addition to that, trope_bingo has some explanations here as well.

On to the claiming form:



Claiming closes on Monday the 15th, giving the teams a week to discuss which tropes to choose. Don't forget to put in a claim before the claiming ends, or we'll have to chase you down.
