About Fast and Furious
Fri Feb 24, 2017 13:56

I just realized that this hasn't been explained for anyone who does not know what it is.

What is it?
Sonora Fast and Furious is a posting event where the word count is waived. This leads to short, sharp exchanges between characters, which can happen in almost real-time if both authors are on at the same time. Whilst we appreciate the skill and craft that goes into writing here, this can make one thread take a long time, each conversation taking weeks to complete. This means that building friendships (or rivalries) takes a long time, and that you only know how a limited number of people interact with your character. Sonora F&F is a chance to quickly change and expand that.

When is it?
This weekend! For 48 hours, starting from 6pm site time on Friday, and running until the same time on Sunday.

Where is it?
We are going to use the Hospital Wing board, as it is rarely used, to do a trial run of this idea. If it is popular, we may choose or build a dedicated space for it. However, in character, the interactions can be set anywhere within the school. You can also continue your threads elsewhere on the site during the weekend, but normal posting rules and word counts apply to anything posted outside of the event.

The rules:
There are no rules! Ok, there are... In that all the usual rules, such as God-modding and the site's PG rating apply. The word count rule is waived. If you find your word count is creeping up and you hit the site word count anyway in a post, it doesn't matter - it's great if the event inspires a longer, more detailed thread.

      You mentioned in a few posts last year that Kir would be welcome over the summer. Can we assume that happened and/or post it on wts to know how it went?
      • Sorry for the delay!Sawyer, Fri Mar 31 00:45
        Yes, we can assume Kir came over anytime he wished too. Sawyer's family is pretty easy going. All fun summer activities are welcomed to be assumed. :)
