Family Ficathon Rules

I love to read about boys and girls in love. But I also love to read about the relationships outside of the big gay romance. So, let's write some stories about Clark and his mom, or the quasi-paternal relationship between Harry and Sirius, or the quasi-sibling relationship between the various Robins.

Your sign up should look like this:

Name: zvi
e-mail: witchqueen at poboxes.com
fandom: fastlane
character: Deaqon Hayes
Family by law: Andre Hayes (brother)
Family by choice: Billie (boss/mom/sister)
Will write in (minimum of three): smallville, popslash, fastlane, farscape
character I won't write: Lionel Luthor
ETAPinch Hit: No

Some rules:

1) No incest. The point of this is to explore those intense but non-sexual relationships.
2) You have to pick one each of Family by Law and Family By Choice. By Law means all blood relatives, all in-laws, adopted parents/children, and the turning/siring relationship. So, Darla counts as Spike's great-great-grandmother. It doesn't include student/teacher relationships of any kind, so Master/Padawan winds up under Family By Choice.
3) 500 words, minimum.
4) If you pick a small fandom, either recruit friends in that fandom or pick a backup character in a larger fandom.
ETA5) Let me know as soon as possible if you will not complete your story or will not complete on time
ETA6) Participants are only required to use one of the family members listed in their story, although, the more the merrier.
ETA7) It is fine to include romantic content (slash or het) in the story, but the focus of the story should be on the familial relationship.
