[livejournal.com profile] harlequinkradam has been imported to this mirror comm on DW on 4/19/17. I imported the community for archival purposes only; I don't want to lose the fic links here should anything happen to fandom on LJ. If you're new to the Kradam fandom, please feel free to browse around.

Please comment here if you have any questions.

Thank you.

Our seventh round at [livejournal.com profile] harlequinkradam is now closed. I’m sad to say that there will be no master list this round because there was no fic or art created. :(

Also, due to this fest (and the fandom in general) not being very busy, it is likely that there will be no further rounds held. I will create a poll closer to June, 2015 to gauge the amount of interest before I make a final decision to close down the fest for good.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in this fest in the past; it's been fun!

Hello, everyone! I've been asked if I'm going to hold another round of Harlequin Kradam this year, and the answer is yes! I've also decided to make some changes.

~The first major change is to the schedule. The posting period will now end on October 31 (instead of September 30) and there will be a 15 day amnesty posting period following that.

~The second major change has to do with prompt submissions, which will now be done via form and and all the prompts saved into a spreadsheet so they don't have to be re-submitted each round. (Though I will remove prompts that have been filled from the spreadsheet unless someone asks me not to.)

The revised schedule for this round is:

Prompt Submission Period: June 15, 2014 - July 5, 2014
Prompts Available for Claiming: July 6, 2014
Claiming/Posting Period: July 6, 2014 - October 31, 2014
Last Day to Claim/Post: October 31, 2014
Amnesty Posting Period: November 1, 2014 - November 15, 2014

Tropes: To make it easier to search for certain prompts, there will be a trope category in the prompt submission form that will ask you to select the trope that best describes your prompt. (In fact, I'm considering including three such questions because I can think of a dozen prompts off the top of my head that will include more than one trope.) Therefore, if someone is searching for 'marriage of convenience' prompts (or marriage of convenience/baby on board/estranged lovers prompts), they can choose that (those) trope(s) from the drop down box(es) and see them all in one place.

I don't want to leave out any tropes, nor do I want to include too many. Please take a look at this list of tropes I've compiled and let me know if there are more I should add, some I should remove, or some that can be combined. Thank you!

Before we get to the actual prompt submission portion of this post, an administrative housekeeping note: From now on the Harlequin Kradam Fest will be held once a year (June-September) rather than twice. It is my hope that by holding the Fest annually we’ll get more people interested in participating, and by holding it in June rather than December we miss out on conflicting with all the holiday challenges, etc.

And now, onto our regularly scheduled Prompt Submission Post! *g* Welcome to our fifth round of Harlequin Kradam Fest! Please comment here with your prompts.

~We will accept prompts through July 5th.

~All of the prompts will be collated into a list and posted here at [livejournal.com profile] harlequinkradam on July 6th for claiming. Prompts will be available for claiming (and you may post your fanfic or fanart submissions) from July 6th through September 30th.

You may submit:

~general prompts or more specific scenarios;
For example:

General Prompt: marriage of convenience

Specific Scenario: Kris Allen is the son of a wealthy businessman who must marry by his 25th birthday or lose the inheritance he plans to use to fund his own charity. He sees Adam Lambert, a struggling musician, perform one night and is smitten; Kris makes Adam an offer he can’t refuse.
~blurbs off the back of Harlequin romance novels, or blurbs from the back of DVD cases, or scenarios you’ve made up yourself, or mix ‘em up; and

~prompts from the last round (just c&p them into a comment here), whether they were claimed and filled or not.

The only requirements are that the prompt be Kris/Adam and be of a Harlequin nature (which we will interpret broadly). Harlequin is a type of romance that includes everything from traditional to historical, intrigue to supernatural. If you’re not sure what we mean by the term ‘Harlequin’, check out the eHarlequin writing guidelines.

For more information about the Fest please read the rules on the community profile. If your question isn’t answered there you may ask us here at the Q&A post.

Please note: If you plan to post a fic this round that you started for a previous round, please make sure that the prompt you claimed is re-submitted for this round so that you can re-claim it.

Here are several more prompts to get us started:

~Kris Allen signs up for Theater 101 because it’s the only open course that fits his schedule. It’s not long before the professor learns what Kris has always known: he sucks at acting. Kris is handed over to the not so tender mercies of TA, Adam Lambert, who teaches Kris about acting, and a whole lot more.

~Single dad Kris Allen finally bows to the inevitable and hires a nanny to help him take care of his daughter/son. Picturing the staid nanny types who suck all the fun out of life, he tells the service that he wants someone who is imaginative and artistic. When Adam Lambert first appears on his doorstep, Kris isn’t sure he’s the right man for the job, but Adam soon convinces Kris otherwise.

~When photographs of Kris Allen kissing another man are posted on-line he refuses to deny that he is gay. His record company claims breach of contract, but they give Kris a choice: either he will be banned from performing publicly for the remainder of his contract and sued for damages, or he can agree to allow them to sell his contract to Adam Lambert, a man who has made no secret of his desire for Kris.

Now go ahead and submit your own prompts!

If you've moved your fic to another location, please comment to this post, the master list, or any admin post, really, to let us know what the new link is so that we may fix it in the master list. It would be a great help to those trying to read your fic.

Also, if you've deleted your journal/the fic and the fic will not be uploaded/archived anywhere else, please let us know somehow so that we may make that notation on the master list, as well.

Thank you!

Tomorrow the Prompt Submission Post for our third Fest will go up! I can’t believe it’s already that time. I hope you're all ready to hit us with some awesome prompts!

I just posted entries for Fic/Art Recs (rec us Harlequin-themed fanfic/artwork that wasn’t created for this Fest) and Related FanWorks (tell us about fanworks, such as podfic and fanmixes, that were created as an extension of your submission for this Fest).

While this community is just for the posting of fic/art created especially for the Fest, we’d love to hear about other fic/art that you think is worthy of being rec’d, as well as if you or someone else created a fanwork related to your submission. Everybody likes listening to podfic or looking at cover art, yeah?

We’d also like to remind you that we have a collection (and subcollections) at AO3, for those of you who post your fic there, as well as a Delicious account that lists all the fic/art created for the Fest.

If you or someone else has created fanworks related to a submission you created for the Fest, we’d like to invite you to tell us about it here.

Related fanworks include, but aren’t limited to, podfic, sequels, cover art, fan mixes, etc.

Just comment here with the name of and link to your original creation, and the creator’s name and link to the related fanwork.

While this comm is only for the posting of Harlequin fic and art created for the fest, we know that there’s a lot more of it out there, floating around LJ.

If you’ve written or read a Harlequin-themed fic, or created a piece of artwork, that you’d like to share with us here, please rec it in a comment to this post.

At a minimum, please include the title, author, rating and reason you’re rec’ing the fic/art, as well as a link.

In addition to a Master List (which will be posted here after the fest concludes), my co-mod [livejournal.com profile] mercilynn has set up a Delicious account to keep track of all the fic written for the Harlequin Kradam Fest. Fic from all rounds will be added and tagged with round, author, length and rating.

Harlequin Kradam Fest @ Delicious

Please remember to include the entire prompt in your header. As a reader I like to know what prompt inspired a fic, but we’ll also be using the prompt in the notes section when the fic are listed at Delicious. Thank you in advance for remembering to do this.

A reminder for those of you who archive your fic at AO3, my other wonderful co-mod, [livejournal.com profile] selu set up a Harlequin Kradam collection, with a sub-collection for our first fest: hk_round01.

Because we have been asked, and we thought that others might have the same question, we've tried to clarify what types of fanart we will accept for this fest. Basically, pretty much anything. *g*

I've added the following to the rules on the profile, and will also add it as an ETA to the rules post:

Fanart includes (but is not necessarily limited to) the following: Animated Buttons, Banners/Headers, Book Covers, Colorbars, Fanmixes, Icons, Manips, Music Vids, Wallpapers.
