Hey guys! [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  fics are up, so you know what that means... the traditional author guessing posts! For anyone new, this is how it works. Some authors put up posts for their own private guessing game- offering some kind of prize for correct guesses. It can be a fun way to get drabbles and stuff out of people. ^_~ The post should, obviously, be screened for comments so other players don't potentially give you away. That being said, guesses should not be confirmed or denied until the reveals, because that disqualifies them from guessing on the actual [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  post! Also, even though it's a tradition, not everybody does it, so you shouldn't feel pressured into making one if you don't want to. Prizes don't have to be writing, either. We've had people offer up icons, art, FST's, playlists, layouts... your imagination is the limit, yeah? :D

I don't know how many people were planning on putting up guessing posts, but should anyone be interested... this will serve as the gathering place for those posts. It's always useful when those things are in one place. ^_^ So if you have a post up for guessing, just comment here and it'll be added to the list. :D

Also, don't forget to guess on the main post where the fics are. The deadline for guessing is May 19th, 11:59 pm EST- you don't want to miss it! Comment! Guess! Love! <3



Non-chat Drabbles~

Okay, so you guys know how we do drabbles in [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  chat sometimes? Well, we're going to do that in this post here so everyone can participate, not just the people that happen to be in chat at the time. As always, this includes readers and non-readers alike. Cool, right? :D

For anybody that's unfamiliar, here's how we play:

1. Somebody comments with a short prompt. Remember, this has to be written in a drabble, so prompts that are longer than the writing probably aren't a good idea. :P
2. The next person fills it! By definition, a drabble is 100 words, so that's what's required here. EXACTLY 100 words of fic. If you need one, this online word count comes highly recommended. (Also note, it's great for [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  fics, too!)
3. When you fill a prompt, make another thread with a prompt for the next person. And so on.
4. One drabble per prompt please! Also one prompt/drabble per comment thread, just to make reading easier for everyone.
5. Using [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  ID's (or your own made up one, if you're not writing this round) is allowed and encouraged. Of course, you can always stay signed in or just be an anonymouse as well. All are great options. :D
6. All comments to this post should be for drabble writing and prompting only. If people want to leave feedback or commentary, you can post it at the support thread.

Also, this is the last of the participation-y posts... at least during the writing process. In case you missed them, there's also a round robin and a free the bunnies post. Enjoy and have fun!

It's a... Round Robin!

Hi guys! It's Ver again with another participation-y type post- this time it's a ROUND ROBIN~! We haven't done this in a long time, but we've had great fun with it in the past, so Qem and I thought it was time to bring it back. Here are the rules, which I totally stole from Tari. Shhh. :P

1. One person starts off the fic as a comment to this post, with a title of their choosing in the subject line of the comment. People dropping by can continue the story by posting the next paragraph as a reply to the previous comment. (If the threads get too long, we can move to a new thread.)
2. Anyone can participate, even if you didn't sign up for this round of [livejournal.com profile] blind_go . (Heck, even if you've never signed up for a round of [livejournal.com profile] blind_go .)
3. You may, if you choose, comment anonymously. As a twist, you could comment anonymously but leave your ID with the comment so we can look back after the reveal and see who wrote what. As a further twist, people who haven't signed up can make up their own IDs/pseudonyms.
4. All comments to this post should be for round-robin writing only. If people want to leave feedback as the fic grows, you can post it at the support thread.
5. People can start more than one round-robin fic in this post. Please make the stories easy to distinguish by keeping them in separate threads with different titles in the subject lines.

As another rule, I'd like to say that these DO NOT have to go with the theme of the challenge, though we're certainly not discouraging that, either. Whatever you guys want to do is fine. Just have fun~

Free the Bunnies!

ID's have gone out, which means that this round of [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  has officially started! Qem and I had brainstormed a bunch of ideas a while ago, so now it's time to spam you all put some of them into action~

This first one is something we'll call "Free the Bunnies." This is a place for everyone to post ideas that they'd like to see written. Have a bunny munching on your brain you just don't want to write? Don't have time/energy/the right muse? Or maybe something you've always wanted to see in fic, but haven't wanted to do it yourself? Well, tell us here! No pressure for anybody else to write it, just... set the bunny free in a field with its friends and see what happens.

As always, [livejournal.com profile] kifu_archive  fun is open to readers and writers alike, and anon is allowed but not required. However, if you comment to a bunny with the intention of writing it for [livejournal.com profile] blind_go , please do so anonymously so that you can keep your identity secret for the challenge!

There will be a couple of more posts for you all to participate in, including a drabbly kind of thing and a round robin. Maybe we can get more bunnies flowing? :D Have fun and stay tuned!

Hi! It's April and I'd love to see more people getting the chance to talk with other Hikago fans via the Blind Go chat, so I've created a poll to get an idea about how we're going to manage some of this round's chat sessions. Don't forget that the chat room isn't limited to participants; so if you've never joined Blind Go but love Hikago, feel free to join in when someone posts a notice!

By the by, I'd love to see some volunteers for the chat. Volunteers will be the ones keeping the chat open and helping people get in by sending invites.

The poll is right below this cut! )
Please comment if you have suggestions or issues getting into chat. Some people had some problems a couple of rounds back - maybe someone can offer tips and tricks! I'll be crossposting this to the main Hikago comm, and this poll is only open until FRIDAY April 9, 12pm PST so get voting while you can!

Hello, fellow Hikago fans! As you've probably seen, sign ups for round 11 of [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  have arrived, and you guys know what that means: lots and lots of flailing, starting now! For anyone new to our challenge here, this is the place we come to flail, cry, procrastinate, plot, ask and answer questions, and support each other.

Anonymouse is encouraged, especially if there could be clues to your fic, but obviously isn't required, and comments will be screened during the guessing period just in case.

Writers: Complaints about lack of progress, procrastinating, requests for ideas, and more are all awesome.

You guys are more than welcome to participate too! Leave your reassurances, fanfic ideas, and helpful random spam here.
