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:


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
