...to DJ PJ, a Percy Jackson remix community - fanfiction remixing, that is!

What is a fanfiction remix?
Ever read a story and think, wow, what a fascinating story, but if I had written it...? A remix is just that: it's a retelling of someone else's story.

So just take another person's story and change everything?
Yes and no. You can do whatever you like to the story - change POV, dialogue, mood, characterization, make it longer or shorter, whatever - except for two things: pairing(s) and the basic plotline. Keep in mind that a remix is meant as a tribute, not an insult. If you want to change that much, write your own fic! (And the rating must be the same or lower than the original fic. Do not add porn when there wasn't any to begin with.)

There's a longer explanation of the remix concept here, too.

How do I participate?
You can make a request, write for an existing request, or simply go ahead and write something!
Request Post: Have an idea for a great remix, but don't think you can do it justice? Make a request!
Mixable Fic: This is your pool of source material. (keep in mind that this list is currently INCOMPLETE, however, better safe than sorry.)

What if I don't want someone remixing my fic?
That's all right! Leave a comment HERE and we'll make sure your fic stays off the list.

So this isn't a challenge?
No. There is no deadline, there is no assignment, there is no limit on how many or what you can do. We will, occasionally, have separate challenges, but the remixing itself is an ongoing process.

What is okay to post to the comm?
Remixed fic itself, challenge entries, meta about remixing.
What is not okay: new fic, questions, wank, randomness. Let's stay on topic, guys.
When posting fic: Always link back to the original fic. Anything over 500 words or over PG-13 must be under an lj-cut.

I have more questions...
Leave a message for the mods here, and we'll try to answer it as fast as possible.
