Posting has nearly come to a close for our Back to Babylon fest. We're still hoping to post at least 2 more fics for this year's fest. (And there may even be some special posts in the coming months for those authors who were delayed).

On that note, I (mander) just want to send out hugs to everyone in fandom that has been going through tough times this summer.

"Mourn the losses because they are many, celebrate the victories because they are few."

So to celebrate, please check out the entries below and leave the authors feedback on their contribution. They worked hard and deserve to reap the rewards!

Title: For Right Now
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mander3_swish
Pairing: Emmett/Drew
Rating: barely R
Word Count: 2100
Warnings: nope
Summary: After Emmett set Drew free near the end of S5 by essentially telling him "Help yourself to whatever you like with whomever you like," they don't see each other for years.... until they finally do.
Author's Note: The prompt I used was the song "Don't Get Married Without Me," and I just immediately thought an Emmett and Drew fic would fit perfectly. Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] museme87 and [livejournal.com profile] sxysadie21 for giving this story a read though! Much appreciated!

Title: Forgive Him
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sangwin
Character/Pairing: Brian/Justin
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 1315
Warnings: none
Summary: for the first time, Justin does not see it as his own loss
Author's Note: I originally had something else in mind for this but with the fall of DOMA and Prop 8 any former bunnies are gone and you are left with this. On June 26 I also asked my partner of 12 years to marry me -- but that’s not really true. I asked her to marry me 6 years ago. She asked me again 2 years later. We have known for a long time exactly what we are. As of two weeks ago we are officially married. Real-married. Legally. Federally. And I couldn’t be fucking happier about it.

A million thank you to [livejournal.com profile] mander3_swish for forgiving my tardiness and giving me a wonderful last minute beta.

Forgive Him )

Title: Bed, Baths & Beyond
Author: [livejournal.com profile] xheartrockx
Character/Pairing: Brian/Justin
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: approx 3,300
Warnings: unless you’re offended by public sex... none
Summary: Brian pulled his jeep into a parking spot in the alley outside the baths and killed the engine. "You're not scared, are you?" Set after 1x09, in reference to season 4x06.
Author's Note: This is not the story I originally meant to write. The one I started just wouldn’t work out for numerous reason so I went ahead, tossed the idea and started something else. I hope you like it. And many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ju_311 for righting my most glaring wrongs.

Now that you've read the rules (community and back to babylon) and checked out the prompts, it's time for sign-ups.

But, just one or two reminders first:

  • Inevitably, someone doesn't read the rules before they sign-up. Some of us are seasoned mods, so we speak from experience. So we're going to stress this again. Read.The.Rules. We've linked to them above in the first line. The community rules are highly, highly important. And just so you know, every time someone reads the rules, Brian Kinney gets laid. We all want to do our part to support his sex life, right?

  • There are no restrictions on how many times a prompt can be claimed. If you don't want to create for a prompt that a lot of folks are creating for, just skim the sign-up forms below to see what's popular.

  • You may only claim one prompt at a time. After you turn in your submission and the mods have approved it, you may claim another.

All set? Then please use this form for claiming:

Please direct all questions to the mod comment below, if you have any. And if you would be so kind, please pimp the fest so that we can have a great turn out this year.

Happy creating, Folkers!

The gay bars on Liberty Avenue are known for nothing if not their colorful array of contests and themed parties. In going back to Babylon this summer, the mods have selected a handful of memorable events from the show to draw inspiration from and, hopefully, respark your creative flames.

Much like last year's fest, each event will have five subcategories: image, quote, place, item/word/concept, and song. The prompts that follow relate heavily or loosely to their event category, and as always, your mod team has done their best to select a variety of prompts that lend themselves to countless interpretations.

Remember, when selecting a prompt for this fest, you will be selecting an event and a subcategory. When providing the mods with your prompt selection in the sign up post, you will, for example, put Dyke Night - Image. Please do not select an event only.

Click for Prompts! )

Feeling inspired yet? If so, head over to the Sign-Up Post.

Welcome to our summer fest at Woody's Place, everyone! As you may know, June is a pretty big month for not just the LGBTQ community because of annual Pride events, but the QAF community as well. We celebrated at the Rise ‘n Shine Convention in LA, and coming up on June 18th is the 6th annual B/J Cuddle Day! Woody's Place will be holding its own celebrations this summer, and we want you to come along for the ride!

Our theme this summer is Back to Babylon, and the mods are gathering together a number of prompts that evoke the spirit of Babylon and a return to generating excitement within our fandom.

Below you will find the rules and submission information for the fest. Please be sure to read the rules very thoroughly, as most questions that participants have can be answered here. If you still have questions after, please don't hesitate to leave a comment. The mods will get back with you promptly.
