ANY INTEREST? NICK GRIMSHAW APPRECIATION FEST 2017
I’m gauging interest in a Grimmy appreciation fest, featuring fic, art, reclists and Nixtapes dedicated to solo Grimmy or any Grimmy ships. All ships would be welcome, provided the Grimmy pairing (or threesome/moresome) is the main focus of the fan work (i.e. not just using Nick as a catalyst to get other people together). That doesn’t mean it needs to have a happy ending, of course. There would be no rating, genre or content restrictions. If you want to participate but don’t write or draw, you can participate by creating public playlists that can be hosted on AO3, with a bit about why the playlist means something to you and your Nick or Nick ship appreciation and rec lists of ten or more fanworks where Nick features as the main character or as part of the main pairing.
I’d moderate the fest, in the following stages.
1. Collect short prompts.
2. Post prompts in an open view gdoc which people could use as a jumping off point. Unlike a fic exchange, the prompts would be for inspiration only. Anybody can prompt, regardless of whether or not you create. Participants can also produce something based on their own ideas, you are under no obligation to choose a prompt.
3. Sign ups and a writing/creating period of two months.
4. Works self-posted to a moderated collection on AO3. Works would initially be anonymous and unrevealed (with the exception of playlists and rec lists, which would not post anonymously).
5. Fest works would be revealed over a fortnight. The works would remain anonymous (with the exception of playlists and rec lists) and creators would be revealed shortly after the last work posts with a Masterlist posted to Tumblr.
If you’re interested in taking part as a creator or would like to otherwise support the fest by commenting on and enjoying the fanworks, please do let me know by sending me a message/ask or by reblogging, liking or replying to this post. If there’s enough interest I’ll get cracking on following up with a proper timeline and firm details.
IF YOU’RE RUNNING OR ARE AWARE OF A GRIMMY SHIP SPECIFIC OR GRIMMY RELATED FEST RUNNING THIS YEAR, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH SO I CAN MAKE SURE MY TIMELINE DOESN’T CAUSE CONFLICT. THANK YOU! <3
