Hey everyone,

Just a reminder that posting officially opens in one week, on Friday October 29th!

The AO3 collection is already available, although anything posted there will remain hidden until the reveal on Friday. Whenever you are ready, feel free to post your story here:

http://archiveofourown.org/collections/mega_flare

Here's a quick tutorial on how to add your story to a collection on AO3!

The official posting period closes on Sunday, November 14th.

Anticipating a couple of questions...

1. What about posting artwork?

You should embed the artwork in the story using the tag. However, AO3 does not currently offer image hosting, so you will need to host your art elsewhere. You are welcome to host anywhere you wish, including on the Mega Flare site. We're still putting the final touches on the uploading service; look for a link soon, hopefully early next week.

2. Oh no, I'm not going to finish by the end of the posting period!

That is okay! You are welcome to post your story and/or artwork late, no need to ask for an extension. And if you submit late, you won't be barred from participating in the future. At this time, we don't plan to close the collection to new submissions, so you can post it whenever you do finish. Of course, we encourage everyone to meet the deadline if possible: one of the points of this challenge is to bring everyone together around a common goal of creating a long story in a short time frame. But if you can't make it, no worries.

However, if you are an author working with an artist, or an artist creating artwork for a story, and you don't think you're going to make the deadline, you are responsible for communicating with your collaborator as soon as possible to work out a time frame.

Any other questions? Let us know. We are in the home stretch! Best of luck to everyone! :D

Thank you thank you thank you. And I think this works out well for my artist too because she's in a very busy period as well.

I'll still aim for the Nov. 14 deadline, but it's good to know there's some flexibility! :D

You are some very awesome folks. I've had huge problems with my story and while I think I can make it for the Nov. 14 this post was a huge relief. Thank you! <3

Can you give me any tips on finding a beta? I'm not done yet (still hoping to be done by Nov. 14 though) but I'd like to find someone to get started with it.

I did comment in the "seeking beta" post that you put up (thanks!) and in a LiveJournal beta community but no luck so far.

I thought of asking at ff_press but I doubt they want to waste space on one person's beta request.

That would be completely great if you have time to do it. You're welcome to e-mail me. You already have some of it of course and I hope to be writing a bunch in the next few days as I'm off work until Tuesday night.

Thanks so much!

I am totally a day late and a dollar short on this (as I spent the weekend, haha, working on my own megaflare story fffff), but just for the record, you can TOTALLY submit stuff like that to the newsletter!

I'm one of the editors there, and if you ever need to do a search/request for betas, you're always welcome to drop us a line. We're here to help fans find news, fanworks, communities, and each other =)

Actually it looks like I may need another beta after all, so I probably will be submitting. That's if I don't give up, but I don't want to give up!

(Thanks so much for the answer!)

No problem! =D

Since we don't link to comments, we'd appreciate it if you could make a quick post (a copypaste of your MF beta comment is fine!) about your beta search somewhere — [livejournal.com profile] ff_noticeboard is great if you'd rather not do it on your own journal, and we watch it, so we'd pick up your announcement automatically. If you decide to use your own journal, just drop us a line through any of the methods listed in our colophon, as I'm not sure we follow your journal. (Let us know if you'd like us to, by the way (= )

My journal really doesn't have enough Final Fantasy content right now to be worth following. But I'll go ahead and make a post in my own journal and drop you a link. That's what I was planning on doing. Thanks again!
