. I wanted to ask if anyone was interested in having a Magneto based ficathon. A Ficathon is a gift exchange sort of thing. You ask for a story to be written and write a story for someone else in an even exchange. Everyone posts the basics about what sort of story they want and then posts what they are willing to write. Admins sort out who writes who's story. Everyone writes the story they were assigned by a certain date and posts it. So you write a story for someone else and receive a story from someone in return. Kind of like a secret santa though in a ficathon you may or may not know who the person writing your story is until the day it's released.
Ficathon's are pretty fun. Check out xmmficathon
for an idea of what a ficathon looks like and how it works.
This ficathon would be just for pairings with Magneto or the character Magneto in general. It could encompass movie Magneto, Evolution Magneto and comic book Magneto all versions like 616, Ultimate, and Age of Apocalypse. All pairings would be accepted like gen Magneto, Charles/Erik, Magneto/Rogue, Magneto/Mystique, Jean/Erik, Magneto/Pyro, Magneto/OC and any other pairing one can possibly think of. Including all those ships and all the versions of Magneto should get a fairly wide audience and peak a lot of people's interests. We could try running the ficathon on magnetic_appeal
or by creating a new community for it.
So what do you guys think? Would you personally want to participate in a Magneto ficathon? Do you think others would? Are there enough Magneto fans to make this work? Unless you guys support the the idea I probably wouldn't do it. Maybe there are enough ficathons as it is and Magneto can get covered in them.
