round four sign-ups [closed]  
EDIT: Sign-ups for this round are now CLOSED.

Hi all! Welcome to round four of khr_undercover, the Katekyo Hitman Reborn! guess-the-author challenge that has returned from the depths of hell to bring together writers and readers in the Reborn! fandom once more. What follows are the guidelines for participants and the form you must fill in order to sign up. A separate post for those who wish to participate as beta readers will follow shortly.


1. Sign-ups will be open from May 16th 2011 through June 10th 2011, or until we have fifty participants.

2. Leave the following information in the comments of this entry:

LJ username:
Writing archive: (can be a link to LJ memories, a fic LJ or a separate site).

3. At the end of the sign-up period you will be e-mailed with a unique user ID, and you must use that ID to submit your fic to hitman.undercover@gmail.com before or on July 17th 2011.

To: hitman.undercover@gmail.com
Subject: [assigned ID] Title of the fic

In the body of your email, please include the following:

Word count:
Rating/Warnings: (warnings are required for materials rated NC-17 or that contain instances of explicit violence, sex with or abuse of children, or instances of dubious or non-consensual sex/rape)
Character(s) or pairing(s):
Name of beta reader:
Theme challenge: (y/n)

(text of fic)

Attach your fic as a TXT (preferred, please do not wordwrap your paragraphs), DOC, or RTF file with the same formatting. If your fic exceeds 10,000 words (or the LiveJournal post word limit), please indicate chapter divisions so that I can post your fic in proper installments. (For example, feel free to send three separate attachments for a three-chapter fic.) Please also include HTML tags for any formatted text in your fic. The mod will post the fics as-is and will not format the fics besides conforming to the above format.

4. The mod will post the fics anonymously to the community on or before July 24 2011. The members of the community will also be supplied with a list of all the authors that wrote for the challenge and their writing archives, in the interest of facilitating the guessing game.

5. The deadline for guessing is August 7 2011, at which time the author reveals will be posted.


1) Submissions must be at least 1500 words long; must be works of fanfiction, and must feature at least one KHR character, although crossovers are acceptable.

2) This round I will accept up to two fic submissions per author. Collaborations are acceptable.

3) a) For this round I require that all fic submissions be proofread by a beta-reader. If you do not have someone who can beta-read your story for you, please contact the mod who will make arrangements for beta-reading.

Because of the complications of deciding which writers should be exempted from this requirement, there will be no exemptions this round. Remember, no matter how good a writer you are, it's never a bad idea to have a second person look over your writing for those niggling little typos!

4 b) Once sign-ups have closed, I will open up a post to match beta-readers with writers who need someone to look over their writing. If you would like to sign up to offer your services as a beta reader, please visit the sign-up post for beta readers.

5) This round's optional theme challenge will be Guardians. It can be any guardians you choose, not just the Tenth's Guardians. That is, if you feel like writing about the Guardians of any of the past generations of Vongola, that's fine as well! Or perhaps you'd like to speculate about a similar guardian-based organization in Dino's Family, the Cavallone? Go for it! Just remember, if you do decide to enter the theme challenge, you must indicate it in the body of your e-mail when you submit your fic.

At least one prize will be awarded this round for the winner of the theme challenge.

6) As before, I ask that if you choose to participate in this round, I ask that you friend khr_undercover for the duration of Round 4 in order not to miss out on any announcements.

7) I also encourage you to participate in the associated social interaction community hitman_hangout; however, this is completely optional.

In summary:

Deadline for sign-ups is 10 June 2011.
Deadline for fic submissions is 17 July 2011.
Fics must be at least 1500 words long; each author may submit ONE or TWO fic(s).
All fics must be read by a beta-reader.
The optional theme for this round is Guardians.

If you have any questions or queries, please either PM the mod (umarekawareru) or leave a comment to this entry!

Sign-up by leaving your username, e-mail address, and a link to your writing archive in the comments of this entry.

ETA: Also, it just occurred to me that I never heard back about a prize for the last round's theme challenge. (I don't even know what it was, haha!) Is that still available, or is it too late now?

Oh, drat, must've slipped our minds. Well, don't worry, I'll cook up something for you. How about, say, a manga-coloring to use as header in your LJ, or something like that? If you PM or e-mail me the code you're using for your layout at the moment, I'll send you the modified code so you only have to copy and paste into the box.

I'm afraid the only thing I can offer is graphics (unless you'd like fic?). Either way, I'll be happy to produce a prize for you. Hop on over to my graphics comm themafiahouse and the fic comm (it's in my sign-up) and decide which one you want, then let me know. Sorry this is all so late!
