Dear all,

I present to you, in all their belated glory: the reveals! Click on the cut below to see who wrote what!

Round Four RevealsCollapse )

As for the guessing challenge, congratulations to lindenmae for nailing every single author! Way to go! I have nothing but fic/graphics to offer you as a prize, please e-mail me whenever you're able to and let me know what you prefer.

In regards to the theme challenge, it saddens me to say that I am unable to declare a winner, as we have a four-way tie. Not many of you have voted and I don't really feel like having everyone win is the way to go. However, to satisfy your curiosity, the names of the tied fics are: Past Perfect, The World Becomes Us, And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer (or maybe it's just you) & Madness Smiled, tied with 2 votes each.

A million thanks to everyone who participated in this round, both authors and betas, particularly to ekmisao, who helped me transfer everything to DW when LJ was being naughty. I hope you have all enjoyed the challenge!

Hi all,

I present to you now our fics for this round of khr_undercover! They've all been posted to our anon journal cedef_guide.

The list of writer IDs and links to the fics.Collapse )

Participating authors and their respective writing archivesCollapse )

GUESSING TIME! All comments guessing the identities of the authors above should be left as a comment to this post. All comments will be screened. When you guess, please format your guesses like this:

[author id]: author's lj name

You may guess for as many or as few IDs as you like. You may leave a new comment to amend your guesses at any time. Do not place guesses for authors for whom you have betaed or who have otherwise shared their stories with you. Guessing will be open until August 11, 2011. Up to three prizes will be offered at the discretion of the mod.

A post for authors to share clues, hints, and red herrings as to their identities will go up on hitman_hangout shortly. EDIT: There you go!

A poll for the theme competition will go up shortly, once the mod has had time to review all fics to confirm they are elligible for the theme challenge.

Go forth and read and make guesses! Don't forget to leave feedback for the fics you enjoyed! (For you authors who are participating, just leave an anonymous comment and sign it with your id.)

Hi all,

The deadline has come and gone and I have received a very small number of fics, but they are very nice fics, so please stay tuned to the comm so you can read them all. All fics will be posted on Sunday, along with the LJ usernames of the participating authors and links to their respective writing archives so you may take part in the guessing game. Thanks to all of you who participated and also to those of you who signed up as betas, you made my workload a lot lighter.

Please look forward to posting on Sunday!

Hi all,

There are only a few hours left until the new deadline I set for people who asked for extensions, and I have only received fic by less than a third of the authors who signed up for this round, including myself! So I am making this post to remind you all that your deadline is tonight at midnight -- please submit your fics by then!
17 July 2011 @ 08:53 pm
Hi all,

I have received extension requests from several of you, and have answered your e-mails to let you know that you have until Wednesday, 20th July to submit your fics. Those authors who have not requested an extension, but could use the three extra days, e-mail me as soon as possible to let me know you'll be submitting late. I believe I have answered everyone's e-mails, but if any of you have e-mailed me over the weekend and not received a reply, please reply to this post or e-mail me again.

Happy writing!

Hey all!

This is a gentle reminder for all you undercover writers out there: the deadline is one week away! Hope you're all tapping away at your keyboards. I will expect your fics in my inbox on Sunday 17th July at midnight. If you do not think you can get your fic to me by then and would like to request an extension, send an e-mail to the gmail account used for this exchange (hitman.undercover@gmail.com). If by Sunday you have neither submitted your fic nor sent me an e-mail requesting an extension, I will assume you no longer wish to participate.

And since this post is all about reminders, the drabble game at our sister community is still underway, so hop on over to read what's been posted so far or make/fill a request!

Happy writing!

Dear all,

I have just finished e-mailing your writer IDs. Please check your inbox and leave a comment here or reply to my e-mail to let me know you got yours. On this matter, I'm calling out to demoerin: the e-mail address you gave me does not appear to exist, please give me a working e-mail address as soon as possible!

In other news, beta sign-ups have now opened here for those who wish to contribute to this challenge as beta readers. All pertaining information is in that post, and comments are screened. I have already asked this of you in the ID e-mail, but please, if you don't know anyone who could beta your fic for you, let me know as soon as possible and I will match you up with someone shortly.

As you all know, fics are due on July, 17. Happy writing! :)

EDIT: To get our writerly engines running, I have started a drabble game over at our sister comm hitman_hangout. Please have a look!

For this round of khr_undercover, I have decided to keep the mandatory beta rule from previous rounds. No exceptions will be made. I understand that there may be people who are interested in participating in the challenge but do not know anyone who could look over their fics for them, so this is a post where all of you kind souls out there with a good grasp of the English languages can offer your services.

If you are unsure as to what a beta is, or what they do, please have a look at this post. Of course, if you still have questions after reading that you can ask them here, but we ask that you read that post before coming to me.

So if you're not confident enough to participate as a writer, don't have the time, or just don't feel like writing anything (but you'd still like to pinch in), this is where you can offer your services as a beta reader.

The information you need to provide is under the cut. All comments will be screened.

Preferred name:
Profile: e.g. brief intro, the sort of fic you prefer to read, the sort of things you are good at checking.
Amount of fic willing to beta:
Restrictions: (Any type of fic you absolutely won't read.
Past beta experience/other relevant experience:
Will you do pinch-hit beta reading?
Anything else you want to add:

If you're unsure, you can find a filled-out example here.

EDIT: To answer a question that some of you have asked in the comments, when I ask if you will do pinch-hit beta reading, I'm asking: if I come crying to you a day or two before posting day asking you to beta a fic whose author has nobody to proofread for her/has had their beta show them up, would you be willing to beta that fic and send it to me lightning-fast? As in, a day or two? (Note that I may not require any pinch-hitting from you if everything goes as it should, but because things rarely go as they should, I want to know if I can count on you to help me out if I need you to.)
