My apologies for the lateness of this post the holidays got in my way and I just got to it now.

Soliciting feedback on how you felt round 3 went.

How can we make this community better? Was the amount of reminders and post on tumblr helpful? Too much? Was it easier with one genre or should we go back to multiple genres per round? What are we doing that you like? What would you like us to change? What would you like to see for the next round? Genres? Word limits? Opinions? Suggestions?

With the servers moving to Russia do people want to continue on this platform or move somewhere else?

Also, I'm not sure when round 4 will be. I'm going to aim for May 2017 because the next few months are going to be very busy for me work wise. It will hopefully settle when the academic semester ends.

Finally, THANK YOU all so much for participating in the fantastic discussions. Thank you for your insightful comments. Thank you for the good discussions. Thank you for joining in.

Here is the link to all the fics and discussions in round 3.

The results are in and the people have voted in favour of going with one genre per round!

Fic's will be limited to 5,000 words or less this round and now it's up to folks to select which genre they would like to read. The options are:

Canon compliant - fics that adhere to the Inception canon.
Femslash / genderbend / rule 63 - fics where genders are swapped for one or all characters.
Gen fic - General rated fics (as per AO3), so fics with no teen and up, mature or expicit content.
Kid fic / Parent fic - Inception characters can be kids or have kids.
Missing scene - Scenes that are missing from the film.
OT3 - Poly pairings! Any pairing is accepted.
Remix - Remixes of other fic's.
Underrated fics - fics that don't have a high kudos or hit but that people love and want to give the author love.

SURVEY CLOSES SUNDAY OCTOBER 16, 2016. We will be doing a "holiday" genre during the month of December which is why it is not on the above list. Check the calendar for additional dates.

Round 3

Hi everyone!

Is everyone ready for round 3?

I have a question to ask in regards to the format of round 3, since there isn't a long list of genres I was wondering if a format change would be acceptable. Instead of doing multiple genres per round we select one and read a number of fics in that genre. This could open up for thematic discussions, comparing and contrasting between fics in the same genre.

We can certainly go back to the old format if people don't like the idea of one genre per round.

I was also thinking, that for this round at least, we have a word cap on the fic. Say no more then 5k words to keep them short so people have time to read. We've had a lot of long, multi-chaptered fics that are difficult to fit in during the school year/real life.

Additionally, in December I'd love to do a "holiday" theme. It doesn't have to be limited to Christmas/Hanukkah, but could incorporate other holidays like halloween or valentines day.

After this poll, I'll open up another to select the genre(s) we choose to read.

My apologies for the lateness of this post. I wanted to have it up the week after we discussed wild card: gateway/fandom classics but life decided to kick me around for the last two weeks of July. (Don't worry, it's all sorted out now it was just a rush to get things completed before I took a week of vaction).

Soliciting feedback on how you felt round 2 went.

How can we make this community better? Was the amount of reminders and post on tumblr helpful? Too much? What are we doing that you like? What would you like us to change? What would you like to see for the next round? Genres? Word limits? Opinions? Suggestions?

These questions will be added in comments below.

Finally, THANK YOU all so much for participating in the fantastic discussions. Thank you for your insightful comments. Thank you for the good discussions. Thank you for joining in.

Here is the link to the post of the fics we discussed for round 2. It is also linked on the side bar.

Slight change of dates to accommodate discussion leaders.  Calendar will be updated to reflect the changes.

[livejournal.com profile] msbrightsidesh and [livejournal.com profile] kate_the_reader will be leading the novel length discussion on June 1st and 8th.

[livejournal.com profile] flosculatory will be leading the au: alternate narriative on June 15th.

Thanks for being so accommodating everyone!!

Thanks for all your feed back guys! It's been great to read about what you would like to see in the next round. A clear request was that we post more reminders about upcoming fics. This can be easily done.

If you would like to give some feed back please do so at this post.

Round 2 will be starting up in May** and we will be doing the following rounds:

  • Angst

  • AUs: Alternate Universe – includes stories like; cat!boy, vampire / werewolf, Dom & sub universe (focus on the relationship) , historical, alternative professions, or different ages like high school and college AU.

  • Novel length

  • Omegaverse

  • PWP

  • Rare Pairings

  • Wild Card – a space for fics that don’t fit other streams

One question about the Wild Card, do we want to make it a theme like alternate narriative POV, Fandom Best Bets, Hidden jems, or just open it up to anything that people can't find a genre to fit in?

Please start thinking about the fic's you would like to nominate for round 2.

A refersher on nominating fic's.

**Dates will be posted to the calendar soon. The community will be advised when dates are set.

How can we make this community better? What are we doing that you like? What would you like us to change? Opinions? Suggestions?

There are some questions we would like answered in the comments, but feel free to add your own.

Additionally, I would love to have a co-mod or two next round. There isn't a ton of work now that the community is up and running, just someone to help me organize and contact people. Mention in the comments if you would like to help mod and I'll send you a link to a form I have.

Finally, THANK YOU!

Thank you all for your patience as I muddled through getting this up and running. Thank you for your insightful comments. Thank you for the good discussions. Thank you for joining in. Thank you.

Thank you for voting and your comments.

The majority would like to continue on with the fics chosen so we can get to the good part - the discussions!

Most of the people who commented as well asked for additional dates for the fics that tied. The calendar has been updated to reflect the added dates and which fics will be read on which day. Those who have nominated have been sent a message asking if they can lead the discussion(s) for the fics they nominated. A post may go up requesting discussion leaders if someone cannot lead their discussion.

The last discussion will be held on March 9 which would give a couple weeks after to solicit feedback on how this community can be better and put out a call for additional mods. I am hopeful that, with additional help, and the learning curve out of the way, that round 2 can start in May with a smoother process.

So, the first discussion will be held on Wednesday January 13. If you haven't started, please read the fics in advance of the discussion. For more information about the discussions and how they will take place take a look at the FAQ and the Nominating and Leading Discussion page for some more information.

Mod ladyprydian here.

I screwed up.

[livejournal.com profile] lezzerlee pointed out to me where I need to look for the link to "screened" comments and unscreen them. I have yet to figure out why this happens when it is not supposed to or what setting I have to change. For those of you who commented with fic that you wanted to nominate and I didn't see them to unscreen them, please accept this as a full apology.

There were a number of submissions to the nominations posts that I did not unscreen - they are unscreened now -  or even see until it was pointed out to me where to look for these screened comments and for me to "approve" them.

I am more than willing to make up another poll for voting with all of the screened fic added. Personally, I think this is only fair as there were nominations that did not get the best shot possible for being one of our discussions. This would, obviously push back the discussions dates I suggest pushing the dates back by at least two weeks so the new nomination poll could have it's week up for voting. It would then give me time to contact the nominators to see if they wanted to lead the discussions and if they don't put up a post requesting volunteers to be discussion leads.

USE THIS LINK TO THE POLL I should not have trusted that LJ would work the way it should. DO NOT USE the poll below. I cannot edit it and it is not functioning the way it should.

[Poll #2032081][Poll #2032081]

Thank you for your time, your vote, and for sticking with me through the first round growing pains of this community. It is, by no means, an excuse but this is my first time as a community mod and it has not been an easy one for either you or myself.

Thank you for sticking this out with me. One day things will run smoothly, I'm certain.

About
The purpose of this group is to provide a space and a conversational community for talking about Inception (2010) fanfiction. Community mods are knackorcraft and Ladyprydian

We read a story to several stories a month. Stories are chosen by nominations from members of the community. Members can spend several weeks digging into one story, or hop between two or three new stories every week – whatever your preferred mode of engagement, there will be people to talk to!

HOW OUR DISCUSSIONS WILL WORK:
We have chosen different "streams" (or subgenres of fic) to get the community started. Please stop in and nominate the fics you want to talk about! And if you see a suggestion that you like, by all means, chip in with a reply to say that you're interested, so we have some sense of which fics are the most popular choices.

If there are several nominated fics in various categories, the decision on which fic to read will be based on a community-wide poll.

Here are the individual nominating threads:

Angst – need a cry? These stories have you covered.
AUs: Alternate Universe – includes stories like; cat!boy, vampire / werewolf, Dom & sub universe (focus on the relationship) , historical, alternative professions, or different ages like high school and college AU. (Unless the younger age corresponds to character development, that fits better in pre-movie.)
AUs: Alternate Narrative – third party narrators,
AUs: Crossover/Fusion – crossovers or fusions with other fandoms.
Fluff – so sweet it leaves you with warm fuzzies.
Humor/Crack – always good for a laugh.
Novel length – Stories that you find at 10 pm and have kept you up all night.
Omegaverse – knotting, babies, and lots of lube.
Pre-movie – back stories and pre movie theories.
Post-movie canon – stories that occur after the events of the film.
PWP – Porn. All the porn.
Rare Pairings – This fandom is A/E heavy, so we want a stream that highlights other pairings.
Wild Card – a space for fics that don’t fit other streams.


This list is our best guess for getting started: we plan on having the community take stock a few months in, so that we can expand, contract, or rearrange the streams to suit the community.

A note on nominating - if the fic you nominated is chosen, then you will be responsible for "launching" discussion of that story: that is, when the time comes to open discussion on that story, you will make the post to start the discussion (which will unfold in comments on your original post), and offer some initial thoughts/questions to get the conversation going. We are happy to provide you with some (optional) guidelines for this first post to get you started.

Our fic discussions will be locked to prevent trolling and protect the privacy of the participants, but the community itself is open. We hope you’ll join us! Send any questions our way by commenting on this ask-a-mod post.
