The Seeing Red: Festival of Fanfiction archive has just had an upgrade and a bit of a makeover. There are several new features to the site, including options to add livejournal and other links to members' profiles. We've also introduced a new 'non-fiction' category to include essays about writing, characters and other topics.

If you have any questions about the site or the Festival in general, please don't hesitate to ask. :)

We'll be announcing an exciting new challenge for the Festival soon, but meanwhile we are open for business, attending to all your redhead-related fanfiction needs!

Enjoy. ^_^

Due to an attack on the Seeing Red archive some of the settings were warped (apparently our little site has some kind of self-defence mechanism o.0;) so people may have had difficulty uploading fics.

It should be okay now, but if you have any difficulties with any aspect of the site, at any time, please let us know.

Things have been a bit quiet lately as we're both mired in academia at the moment, but please keep posting those fics, challenges and reviews! We will be back in January with new prize-challenges!

Write! Read! Review!

Thanks to the authors who entered our 'Do It Yourself' challenge mini-contest. All three entries were of a very high standard.

We are pleased to announce that the winner is [ profile] blehmeh05 for 'Traffic'. Congratulations!

The challenge remains, even though the mini-contest is over, so it's not too late to respond. We are also almost at a point where we can resume the distribution of prize banners from the previous contest. Please bear with us just a little longer!

More mini-contests will be announced soon. Meanwhile keep reading, writing and reviewing!

We have added a new category to the Festival site, called 'Writing Craft'. We would like to collect articles here that will help Festival members to improve their writing.

Articles can be on any topic to do with writing: grammar, finding inspiration, structure and form, dialogue, anything you'd like to pass on to your fellow writers. Articles may be pitched at beginners, developing writers or the more experienced. They can be full-length articles or a few quick tips, even links to your favourite writing-lore sites - whatever you think might be helpful to other writers.

We will moderate the articles and edit them for grammar and readability if we see fit, but if we do edit rest assured we will make sure you're happy with the edited version before it's posted.

There will also be prizes in the Autumn for the most useful and popular articles! So share your favourite writing tips and best advice with us now. Just submit as you would a story, but choose 'Writing Craft' as the category. And be sure to keep an eye open for articles coming your way soon!

We now have 29 stories and 30 reviews in the archive - that's good but we need more!!! Write! Read! Review! And enjoy. :)

We would like to extend our apologies to those who are still awaiting their prize winning banners for the Seeing Red 2005 contest. It has come to our notice that vote-rigging may have taken place and thus we may have to readjust some placings.

At the present time we believe this only applies to one entry, in a runners-up position. However, to be fair we feel we should scrutinise all the voting logs to be certain that the contest results are fair.

Due to an associated incident we have also had to change the settings of the Festival so that only registered members may leave reviews and ratings.

To say we're pissed off about this is putting it mildly. We beg the patience of our honest winners while we're sorting it out, and will inform the affected parties as soon as we're sure what's happened.

If anyone wants to own up and withdraw their entry, that would make our life a whole lot easier, by the way.

There are already 16 stories up at the Festival site ready for reading and reviewing. Thanks to our early-bird authors for getting us off to a great start!

Of course we want loads, loads more. Beginners and expert writers alike are very welcome to join the site and upload their stories - if you have any problems just let us know.

Work on the Scarlet Seduction Charity CD has been rescheduled, and we have reopened submissions until the end of April, should anyone have any stories, pictures or AMVs to add.

Also, the Scarlet Seduction site has had a tidy up. Do let us know if you find any missing links or pages!

Read! Write! Review!

We hereby declare Scarlet Seduction's Seeing Red Festival of Fanfiction open!

We've decided to do something a little different this year. After running three very successful contests, we thought it was time to try something new. There will be a contest later in the year for the more competitive souls amongst us. But the main intention of the Festival is to celebrate all that's good and fun about fanfiction: to give writers a place to share their work, readers a place to find it and give feedback, and from time to time some inspiration and ideas to help the creative processes along.

We hope you like the idea and our new-look archive. Go check it out, get writing and spread the word!

Hurrah for fanfiction and most of all, of course, yay for redheads!!
