At this point, December 25TH, 2012 is the official cut off point for the_dakotaverse ficathon
(as far as prompting goes. I imagine if this was anything like a secret_santa, I'd still be posting material from other members or vice versa). Signs up began the 16TH of November and ended on the 30TH of the same month. I stepped outside of the realms of the community promotion sites of LiveJournal.com and Dreamwidth.org and visited tumblr to advertise
. It got generally positive reblogs and likes from fellow Milestone Media fans (most especially from BFMC
) and a great turnout of prompts throughout the latter months of November and December.
Yesterday (December 24TH, 2012) was (and still is) the day when posting for fics was supposed to be begin and prompting ended, but those who responded either are still working on their stories or never got past the “oh, this looks interesting” bus, forgetting it and getting swept up in other things. Others had legitimate problems occurring in RL they felt comfortable with messaging me about. So, while this sounds like a “thanks, but no thanks” post, I’m really appreciative of the response this ficathon got, but considering the size and lack of cohesion the Milestone Media fandom has a result of being unable to obtain the multimedia that’s attached to their interest beyond a few trades released by DC Comics --- or other issues entirely, I really don’t see anything like this occurring for a third
Nevertheless, big thanks to all who participated in the ficathon; Prompts will remain in the thread and can be used to the discretion of whoever visits this community and feel free to continue to post prompts if that’s what you want. I’m certainly not gonna dissuade you.
