Beginnings


Beginnings - I love 'em.

Is it love at first sight? Ah, maybe it's antagonism at first sight (it is John and Rodney after all).

But this definition - little messy or imperfect - has John & Rodney and their romantic endeavors written all over it.

To start off the Fest, we are having a prompt roundup! Prompt suggestions should be left in a comment to this post.

What you consider a prompt is up to you.

Prompts may be anything including, but not limited to, pictures, poetry, or song. You may offer as many prompts for the fest as your romantic heart desires. We'll continue with our shameless begging for prompts until midnight (wherever you are) Jan 8th.

You may leave more than one prompt but please be clear and separate multiple prompts by using numbers or separate lines.

Remember too, since this is not an exchange there is no certainty that your prompt will be chosen but any offered inspiration is greatly appreciated.

I'm sure the question will arise, What can I post for an entry if I'm not a writer?

The answer is - Anything goes. If you've made a pancake of John and Rodney kissing, we want to see it!

Truly, how you imagine John and Rodney's Romance is up to you.

All mediums, stories, meta, rec lists, podfic, pancakes, etc will be met with welcome delight. Remember - this is a Fest!

Don't think this means a story has to be fluff. Some of the best tales involve a rocky road, misunderstandings, and angst. The only requirement for the Fest is to give our boys their happy ending.

"John, look, it's time for our happy ending!"


Yes indeed, it's almost time to celebrate Valentines with John & Rodney and let our guys have their happy ending (er, which sounds vaguely dirty).

As last year, there will be a prompt post - a gathering of inspiration if you will. You may choose an idea or several from the prompt pool or use your own prompt for this years entry.

Then we'll have be a prompt-claiming post and a chance to select your posting date. I'd love to see an entry a day for the first 14 days of February if there's enough interest. Sign up dates will continue throughout the Fest (because it's never too late for a happy ending).

Further info on how this will work is on the profile page and if you have any questions just ask.

This is the announcement post. The prompt post will go up tomorrow.

This is a happy ending McShep Romance Fest - so unsurprisingly - a happy ending for our guys is required. Other than that, the Fest is open to your choice of medium, story, art, podfic, rec list, meta, etc. We're all about Romancing John and Rodney and the happy ever after.

We are about to embark on -oh gosh - The 2016 Romancing Mcshep Fest! Can you believe it?

As I'm blowing the dust off last year's banners it occurs to me that a banner request is just the thing to kick this off. I've never done banner request before so this could get interesting.

I'm starting by counting backwards. Ah, this explains so much about my life.

Banners should be submitted and available to post 6 weeks before Feb 1st to give plenty of time to promote [livejournal.com profile] romancingmcshep should anyone want to do a longer piece for the Fest.

Feb 1st is the first day of posting so if you'd like to create a banner for the fest please have in by Dec 20th.

Banner requirements

Here is are example of previous banners Banner examples

The banner should have the posting dates ( Feb 1 - Feb 14, 2016 ) and have a reference to Romancing McShep and Happy Endings. Everything else is up to the artist.

Have fun and thanks for playing!

Yesterday we had Pilots and sexy planes. (No my dears, this is not the same as plane sex, but I won't stop you from going there.)

As for astrophysicists...

FlashSpect950

...let's just say I'm fairly certain Rodney would find this very sexy. If you stare at it too long, it's bound to give you ideas.

starry night for romance

John and Rodney are camping under the stars with the Milky Way galaxy lighting their night. Er, where are John and Rodney? Maybe I'll just leave that to your imagination.
