[Challenge 01] Voting post!

Sorry for taking a while to get to this.

Our first challenge is over, and it's up to you all to decide who the winner is. I'll be using a similar format as FE Contest uses - select a story for first, second, and third place (no more, no less). Stories assigned 1st place will get 3 points, 2nd, 2, and 3rd, 1. The story with the most points wins.

Votes will be screened. Anonymous and non-member/watcher votes will not be counted. You may vote for your own story.

Voting will be open until Sunday, June 5th. Please vote!

The submissions:

A. Mercenary, by rethira
B. A Tea Party for Two by crimsonmorgan
C. Lotus Queen by xirysa
D. To Bear the Mantle by lacunose
E. Until Midnight by nagasasu
F. The Making of a King by taywen

Awesome stuff, everyone :D

Hey everyone!

We've gotten some awesome submissions for the "Royalty" theme challenge, but there have been a couple requests for an extension. Since I know this is exam/cram/not-fun season for a lot of us, I'm going to push the deadline back to May 30th. All submissions must be in then, and I will post the voting at that time.

Please remember that we have no word minimum or maximum, and that art is absolutely in the running.

Uhm, happy Magvel-ing! :D

Challenge #1: Royalty

Magvel Challenge #1: Royalty

After considering all the opinions and ideas of the comm, crimsonmorgan and I have decided to open up the comm's first challenge.
The theme is "royalty", and you may take that in any direction that sings to you.

The rules for this challenge:
1. Art and fic are both welcome.
2. You may also use your piece for other comms/challenges, but you may not enter an old piece (as in, posted somewhere before this challenge began).
3. Canon characters are not a necessity - the only requirement is that it takes place within the world of FE8, or an AU thereof.
4. There is no minimum or maximum word count for 'fic.
5. There are no rating restrictions - however, please tag your work appropriately.
6. The deadline is April 30th, 2011 at midnight EST. Entries will be judged by screened-comment voting by members.

Prize will be a sweet, delicious banner by raphien and bragging rights as the one, the only winner of the first magvel community challenge!

Questions, concerns, and all other matters related to this may be posted here.

Editing to add that I (raphien) will be handling the vote counts and such, and am thus excluding myself from participating. It is open to everyone else.

Question for the community!

Hey everyone!
When the comm was originally bounced around as an idea, crimsonmorgan and I couldn't come to a decision on whether or not we wanted to set up a periodic (monthly or bimonthly, perhaps) fic/art challenge.

I'm torn myself - on the one hand, we have fe100, fe_fest, emblanon, fe_exchange, fe_contest, and probably some others I've missed that offer prompts and challenges which can get overwhelming, and fandom as obligation is a great way to suck the fun out of it.

On the other hand, offering a challenge here would be completely optional, and could offer challenges around specific characters, themes, and elements that are more specific to Sacred Stones, plus shedding some light on things that are rarely touched on.

So, I figure I'll raise the question here, what do you all think? Would you participate? If we do offer challenges, what kind do you want, and how often?.

Also pimping out our fic rec list - feel free to chime in there :3

Welcome to the comm!

Everything is officially set up and ready to go, so feel free to post!
(If anyone has any other genre tags they'd like to be added, please let me know.)

As you may already know this is a community where you can discuss characters and meta, pimp fics and art, talk gameplay, ask questions, and everything else you can come up with. The only rule: it has to be connected to Magvel/FE8 in some way.

Rules and fic/art header behind the cut!Collapse )

Hey everyone!

crimsonmorgan and I are still getting things up off the ground, but here are the basics!

This is a comm for discussion, ficcage, art, and just about anything else pertaining to FE8, in an attempt to spread the love a bit more.
Full rules will come within the week, but any suggestions or questions you have, feel free to post them right here.

Especially of concern - tags! Do we want tags for individual characters? Which characters get tags? Is Gheb as tagworthy as Eirika? (We will not be adding pairing tags. There's no way we can predict if someone's going to write, I dunno, Selena/Morva, you know? too many options.)

Also, would anyone else want to be a moderator?
