Hi everyone,

Apologies for such a long radio silence from the mods, and for the belated nature of this announcement. After much serious discussion, and a long, hard look at our schedules and commitments, [personal profile] renay and I regret to say that we will not be able to run Mega Flare in 2012. In early 2013, we will regroup and gage interest in hopes of running a third round next year.

We hope that this announcement doesn't come as too much of a disappointment to anyone. And if you had a story idea you were hoping to write, please don't let this discourage you from doing so! If previous rounds of Mega Flare proved anything, it's that there is an audience for longer stories set in the Final Fantasy universes.

Also don't forget that previous rounds produced almost 20 great stories, and they are all still available in the AO3 Mega Flare collection. Check them out, and leave our authors and artists some love if you enjoy them!

Thanks to everyone who has supported and created for this project with so much enthusiasm, and we hope to see you all again in 2013.

Cheers,

KJ and Renay

Congratulations to our participants who made today's official posting deadline!

Two more stories have been posted, one with artwork:

Reap the Whirlwind by [personal profile] stealth_noodle, a FFIV story featuring Barbariccia.

A Means to an End, written by [personal profile] deadcellredux and illustrated by Bix, a Turk story set after the end of FFVII.

Many thanks to everyone who participated in this year's 2011 round of Mega Flare! :) Late posting will be open until at least next spring, so if you finish late, please feel free to go ahead and post your work. Although we will no longer be checking for new stories every day, we'll continue to post and promote every week or so. Please do take a look at your fellow participants' stories in the AO3 collection, and if you like them, make sure to let the creators know!

It is June 22nd, and as of the composition of this message, we have 45 authors and eight artists. It's not too late to join the rad times sure to be had — author signups close July 2nd, 2010 (check this time in your location).

However, artist sign-ups will continue until September 3rd, so if you know of any artists that might want to take part, feel free to pass on the word about the project. We are definitely searching for different ways to get in touch with artists, so if you have any ideas, please pass them along. If you feel like spreading the word, you can use our new graphics if you've a mind, made for us by [personal profile] rose_stanhope and [personal profile] justira and located in this entry. We thank them very much for their generosity. :D

Don't forget that anyone can volunteer to be a beta, whether a participant in the project or not. Also, if you're looking for a collaborator, you can swing by this entry and leave a comment, and with luck someone will ping you. :D

Remember, if you've signed up, you can feel free to start creating! No need to wait for signups to close. Good luck!
