Title: Something I'm Not
Author: Sashataakheru
Fandom: Egyptian Mythology
Characters: Wesir (Osiris), Aset (Isis), Ra, Yinepu (Anubis), Set
Pairing: Wesir/Aset
Rating: FRM
Prompt: Mythology - Egyptian, FtM!Wesir (Osiris), what it means to undergo death as a trans* god for [community profile] queer_fest 2014.
Warnings: Er, character death. Of the god variety.
Author's Notes: Bastardised version of the Osirian myth, with Wesir as a trans* god. Which presents its own set of challenges and that's why it's not particularly canonical. There are mythic things in there, but I wouldn't call this anything like a faithful retelling. It is what it is.
Summary: For a long time, Wesir thought there was nothing worse than human priests who couldn't understand they'd been making statues of him all wrong. But then he met Aset, and ran into the other gods of Ra's court, and suddenly human priests referring to him as a goddess seemed quite bearable, after all.

I made a spreadsheet of the prompts, which can be found here @ Google. I thought that might be useful. You can download the file (though it's so big it crashed on me a few times).

If I left any prompts off, you can add them in the comments here. If you did not follow the prompt posting rules and did not post prompts as Comma Separated Values ("Fandom, Characters, Prompt"), your prompt will be messed up. There are over 1000 prompts, I'm not tidying them up, this already took way too much time, sorry.

There are going to be some changes in Queer Fest this year. Unfortunately, personal issues for the mods mean that the usual claiming and posting schedule cannot be accommodated.

However, prompts have already been made, so the fest will proceed. We are simply proceeding in a much less formal manner.

Essentially, the entire fest is being run on the same basis as the freeforall basis.

The rest of the rules do still apply. Absolutely no changing of the gender identity or sexual orientation from the original prompt will be tolerated. Please review the rules before you proceed.

Sorry for the way that the fest has gone this year, but the personal and medical problems cannot be avoided. This is the best compromise we can make. Hopefully it can be back on track next year.

We hope you plan to participate this year, despite the chaos.

Due to modly personal emergencies, claiming for queer fest has to be post-poned. The claiming post will go up by Monday, April 7th.

Sorry for the delay!
queer_fest_mods: (Default)
[personal profile] queer_fest_mods
As a reminder, today is the last day queer fest will be taking prompts for 2014.

(In reality, the prompt post will stay up until the mods are awake tomorrow morning. That should roughly translate to 10 a.m. EST.)
queer_fest_mods: (Default)
[personal profile] queer_fest_mods
The prompt post is not a discussion post. If you have a problem with a prompt or with a mod decision about a prompt, it is not the place to bring up your problem. It is a place for prompts alone. Discussion in the prompting post will be deleted, because that is not where it belongs.

If you have problems with mod decisions, take it to PM or to the rules post. Alternately, you may take it to the tumblr ask box.

To clear up some things:

1.) Characters can certainly experience self-hatred and internalized phobias. If, however, it sounds like a prompt is portraying these things as positive, we may ask you to reword the prompt. That does not mean that we are assuming you are oppressive yourself. We don't know anything about you. It simply means that the prompt doesn't fit the fest as it is currently written.

2.) The community is going to remain a safe space as much as we can make it one. If you consider that "policing" that is unfortunate, but not our concern.

This is the prompting post!

Prompts can be from any fandom. Please read the rules first.

When leaving prompts, please leave them in the following form: Fandom, characters, prompt. 

Crossovers should be left in the following form: Crossover, fandom a/fandom b, characters, prompt. (please put fandoms in alphabetical order)

RPF prompts should be left in the following form: RPF, fandom(s), characters, prompt.

You can leave as many prompts per comment as you like and as many prompts in one comment as you like! You do not have to plan to claim prompts in order to post prompts and posting prompts does not mean you have to participate in the claiming round. If you wish to recycle prompts from previous rounds of queer_fest or lgbtfest, you are welcome to do so.

Any questions/concerns about prompts should go to the rules post or via pm to the mod account. The rules post has been set to screen all comments to preserve privacy. If it's just a general question and not a problem with a prompt, it will be unscreened. Please contact us if you have a problem.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Comics fandoms: When prompts are compiled for claiming, all Marvel comics will be grouped together by universe - i.e., Marvel 616 or Marvel Ultimates, including the X-Men. The same is true for the DC Comics universe. Movies will be grouped together as well. The Avengers movies will be grouped together, but the X-Men and Spider-Man movies will be listed separately because they are not the same 'verse. Likewise, the Nolan Batman movies and Superman movies will be listed separately from the comics and from each other.  So if you want to keep that in mind when you are prompting, that's great! If you don't, that's fine, too, and we'll take care of it during the compiling period.
  • Agents of SHIELD will be listed under Agents of SHIELD, not the MCU.

Happy Prompting! Don't forget to read the rules! Prompting ends on March 29.

Prompting for 2014 Queer Fest is now closed.

Hi, and welcome to the 2014 edition of queer_fest! Please be sure to read the rules carefully before participating. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to leave a comment to this post or to PM queer_fest_mods.

Q. What type of prompts/stories/art are allowed?

The purpose of queer_fest is to celebrate and examine the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, genderqueer, asexual, intersex, and trans characters through fanfic and fanart. There are many themes of intersectionality that you can explore through prompts/stories about disabilities, race, being poly, being kinky and all of those are welcome, as long as they focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, genderqueer, asexual, intersex, or trans characters.

Q. How much of the of the prompt/fanfic/art has to be devoted to the character's experience of being queer?

At least some of it. That's a vague answer. But what this means in practice is that if you want to prompt/write/draw the adventure of Steve Rogers and Tony Stark slaying a dragon together and you want that to be the main plot, that is fine as long as the experience of being queer is mentioned in the fic! Maybe Steve is really disappointed that this is the third time that his attempt to visit the queer friendly toy store has been thwarted by a dragon attempt. Maybe Tony is happy to be slaying dragons and away from asshole republican reporters. Maybe they are both getting texts from Bucky, who has decided to catch up on Bomb Girls without either of his two partners.

Importantly: Simply having Steve and Tony in a relationship is not exploring the experience of being queer. That's your standard slash fic, and that's cool! But not the point of this community or this fest.

Alternately, if you want the entire prompt/fic/art to focus on the experience of being queer, that's cool too.  

Q.  What types of themes are allowed?

Themes can include, but are not limited to: stories about coming out, figuring out sexual orientation or gender identity, planning your awesome same-sex wedding, attending pride celebrations, figuring out your place in the queer community, the politics or social structures involving queer individuals in fictional worlds, or dealing with prejudice.

We want to make it very clear: positive stories about queer experiences are very much welcome and encouraged, but this is a safe space for many who have not had a positive experience, whether with family or society. Please do not bash prompts on either end of that spectrum. If you cannot be respectful of multiple types of queer experiences, this is not the fest for you.

Again, because it comes up multiple times each year: Happy fics and art and prompts are loved and encouraged. Not so happy fics and art and prompts are loved and encouraged. If that's not okay with you, this is not the fest for you.

Q. Do characters have to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, genderqueer, asexual, intersex, or trans in the canon source?


Q. If the characters are lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, genderqueer, asexual, intersex or trans in the original canon, can I request them to be a different type of queer character? AKA, can I request a gay male character to be a bisexual male character?

Yes. This is true of RPF fandoms, too. However, you may not change the gender identity or sexual orientation of a prompt. If someone prompts a gay male character, you cannot write them as a bisexual male character.

Q. What types of fandoms are allowed?

All fandoms are allowed, including RPF. For RPF fandoms, characters involved must be at least 18. This is only an RPF fandom rule, and characters in fictional fandoms do not have to be 18.

Q. What's not allowed?

  We want this fest to be as open as possible, but the following are not welcome here:

  • PWP stories ARE AWESOME. But they are not the point of this fest. Stories that are merely hook-up stories, or which focus on the relationships between characters and not their gender identities or sexual orientations, are not within the spirit or scope of the fest.  Stories can definitely include characters having sex, but should be about the experiences of being lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, genderqueer, asexual, intersex, or trans.

  • Prompts/stories that focus on non-queer individuals or allies are not in the spirit of the fest. This includes their reactions to their queer family/co-workers/teammates.

  • Prompts/stories in which characters question their sexual orientation/gender identity and decide that they are not queer after all are not welcome here. The focus for this fest is on individuals who do identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, genderqueer, asexual, intersex, or trans.

Q. What are the story/art length requirements?

All stories must be at least 1000 words long. As for art: you should put comparable amount of effort into it and it should be complete, not a sketch of what you would have finished if you'd had more time. Most types of art are acceptable: i.e., Tumblr gif sets are fine, traditional art is fine, comic strips are fine. Icon sets are not acceptable.

Q. What other story and art requirements are there?

Stories and art are not gifts, but they should be in the spirit of the prompt you claim. This means no changing the gender identity or sexual orientation from the original prompt. For example, if the prompt you claim specifies a bisexual character, do not change that to a gay character or vice versa. It's our goal to respect all members of the queer umbrella, and changing the original request doesn't really do that.

Stories posted to the community should be respectful of all aspects of the queer community. If your story is about sexual gay men, it should not bash aromantic asexuals. If your story is about lesbians, do not bash bisexual women. This is not to say that homophobic/biphobic/intolerant characters cannot be included. Those themes are within the scope of the fest. But the story itself should not be used as an excuse to bash other types of queer individuals.

Q.  What type of warnings do I have to include?

The following must be warned for: rape/non-con, dub-con, underage, child abuse, character death, incest.  Anything else is up to the author.  If your story features one of these elements and you do not wish to warn for it, you must include a "Choose Not to Warn" or similar type of warning.

Q. Where can I post?

You can post your fic anywhere you want - LJ, DW, AO3, your own website, tumblr. Anywhere you feel comfortable. But you must post at least a link on this community.  Additionally, there will be an AO3 collection.

All posts should be tagged with the appropriate fandom(s), using the fandom: fandom name tag.

Q. What type of headers do I need to use?

All posts should include the following information in their header:

Warnings: (if any)
Author's Notes: (if any)

Q. How does claiming work?

Everyone may claim up to 3 prompts and every prompt may be claimed up to two times. When  you claim a prompt, you must claim a posting day. Up to 10  people may sign up for each date. If you pick more than one prompt, you will need to pick different days, one for each prompt.

You do not have to prompt in order to claim and prompting does not obligate you to make a claim.

Q. About the Free For All Period
During the Free For All Period 
anyone can submit fic of any length from any unclaimed prompt on the prompt list.

Q. What happens if I am inspired to write fic after the fest is over?

After the fest closes, a post will go up that allows you to link to any fic that you post during the year that is inspired by any of the prompts.

Q. What is the 2014 Schedule?

Prompt submission: March 14 to March 29
Prompt claiming: April 1 to April 15
Posting begins: May 15
Posting ends: June 15
Free For All: June 16-June 30

Q. What happens if I find a prompt offensive?

Please let us know. We will be checking each of the prompts and making that call, and it's possible we simply haven't seen that prompt yet. You can PM us or leave a comment to this post.
