We will be using the Dracotops_Harry Collection
for this year's fest
Fest fics that are longer than one LJ post (approx. 7000 words) will be posted to the Dracotops_Harry Collection at AO3.
- Does this mean I have to have an AO3 account?
If you're an author and submitting a story that is longer than 7000 words, then yes, you need an AO3 account.
If you have no AO3 account and your are submitting a story that is longer than 7000 words, please contact the mods. We happily provide a code for you to set up an AO3 account.
- What if I don't want an AO3 account?
If you do not want an AO3 account and you are submitting a story longer than 7000 words, you still will be named as the author of the story on AO3, but there will be no link on the AO3 page to an author's account.
- My story is shorter than 7000 words but I want it posted to AO3, too
No problem. Just let us know when you submit your story.
- Authorship, Comments, Kudos
All fest fics posted to the AO3 Collection will be posted anonymously with just the mod showing as the "author". However, you will be from day one listed as the "co-author" but remain anon until the Reveal. After the Reveal, the fic will be listed in your Dashboard/Works page, just as any other fic you have posted on AO3, and you'll keep all comments and kudos you've received during the fest.
We will encourage AO3 readers to leave comments and provide a link back to the LJ post with the header of the fic.
- Editing After Submission
As the author is listed as co-author from the moment we post your fic to AO3, you can edit your story even after you submitted it. Please do use this option sensibly. Don't rewrite your entire fic. ;)
If you have questions about how we use AO3 for the dracotops_harry Fest, please comment here or email the mods @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
