Okay, folks, it's time to claim your stories, to put your names (and your betas' names) on your work.

Please don't forget to change your remix author: tag (i.e., replace the sockpuppet name with your own in the tag), but um, until we do some deleting there, if you are slow to put your name in, you might run up against the 1000-tag limit, so please be patient if you run into that problem. I'm pretty sure we'll come in (just) under 1000 tags once the sockpuppet tags are removed, even with the addition of 250+ new tags.

I want thank you all for participating. I hope you had fun.

I especially want to thank laurificus, who did most of the work this year on answering participants' questions and emails.

Maybe we'll do it all again next year. We haven't decided yet.

Once again, I strongly encourage you to acknowledge your remixer, and also to answer your feedback.

You are now free to post your remixes to your own LJs or wherever else you'd like.

Thanks again for playing.

We all lost things in the war.Collapse )
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, may I present to you:

Remix...Redux 6: There are many copies, and they have a plan

The Archive is open. 270 stories in 50 (or so) fandoms from Angel to Yami no Matsuei, and many more in between.

The best way to navigate the community is via the tag list - you can find the remix of your story by finding your name in the original author list, and you can also navigate by fandom, pairing, and character.

Read. Love. Send feedback, even though the authors will remain anonymous until next Saturday, April 26th. Speculate on who remixed whom. Thank your remixer. Have fun and thank you all for participating.

To track comments on your story, please use the "track comments" feature of LJ, since we've turned off the comment emails on the stories, as they come to the remix address.

If you feel the need to reply ASAP to your feedback, please do so anonymously, or via your sockpuppet LJ. We went through a lot of work to make this anonymous, and I don't want that blown the first day.

Couple small housekeeping items:

+ in the interest of keeping the total number of tags down, so we don't bump up against the 1000-tag limit, we've tried to use only one tag per character, so married ladies might be listed with both their maiden and married names if they're referred to that way in canon (e.g., lily evans potter, andromeda black tonks, zoe alleyne washburne, etc.). Also, I am not familiar enough with Doctor Who or the animanga fandoms to sort those tags out any better, so hopefully they work for you.

+ If you've posted a multipart story - and a number of you have - please make sure you've linked to all parts in each section, and labeled them all correctly in both the body and the subject line, so people can navigate easily.

Thanks, guys! I hope you had fun!

Thank you especially to my fellow mods, who helped shoulder some of the burden this year:

amberlynne, devildoll, and laurificus, and to merryish, who stepped in at the last minute to help out.

Thanks and love to all the pinch hitters, for helping out above and beyond the call of duty. I owe you guys, and I appreciate your willingness to help out more than you can ever know. I don't think I've forgotten anyone, but if I have, let me know. I apologize profusely.

Special thanks to nopejr, medie, kassrachel, and poisontaster, who answered the call more than once.

As you can see, a number of you are getting more than one remix, because, oh frabjous day, some of the original remixers came through in the end as well. Be happy. *g* I figured nobody'd mind having *more* fic to read. *g*

And again, remember to acknowledge your remixer ASAP!

Thanks again to amberlynne for the hot banner, and to soundingsea for the signup form, and to dracofiend for providing the matching algorithm.

Let us know if there are any glitches or thingies not working right, either here or via email at remixredux [at] gmail [dot] com.

I am going to go have many tasty alcoholic beverages now.

Author's Notes: Many thanks to my ever-delightful beta, hotelmontana. She is always patient when I hand over unintelligible gobbledy-gook and is wonderful at figuring out what works and what doesn't. Also, thanks to the mods for being so patient with me. I made a bloody mess out of the posting process this year, and they were terribly kind and didn't torment me with the scary poking stick. Finally, thanks to ficwize for writing such lovely things that I had quite a time deciding which one to remix. It was a pleasure being your remixer this year.

It probably isn"t the first time. After all, the first memory you have of someone doesn"t mean they didn"t exist before. But the first time he remembers it happening is when he was six.Collapse )
