2014 Themes Finalized!  
Our themes for the 2014 Themeatic Week will be:
  1. Soulmates (Poll - Round 1, 24 votes)
  2. Pretend Relationship (Poll - Round 1, 17 votes)
  3. Fix-It Fic (Poll - Round 1, 16 votes)
  4. Arranged Marriage (Poll - Round 1, 15 votes)
  5. Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics (Poll - Round 2, 14 votes)

Someone mentioned that most of the themes are geared toward romance. This is true; for a bit of extra challenge, I dare you to podfic something Gen that fits one of the shippy themes. ;-)

To give some leeway to fans of rare fandoms and rare ships (that often have few works over 10,000 words, much less works over 10,000 words that match the assigned themes), podficcers have the option of recording multiple works in a SINGLE rare fandom or rare ship that fit any mix of the above themes in order to meet the 10,000 word minimum requirement. For the purposes of this challenge, a rare fandom will have fewer than 100 podfics on the audiofic archive and a rare ship will have fewer than 50 podfics on the audiofic archive. If you intend to take this route, please notify me.

The anthology of short podfics option currently applies only to the Themeatic Week. If you wish to do something for Free-For-All Week, I will accept arguments for very small fandoms or ships.

Feel free to suggest fics that match the above themes in reply to this post!

Oooh, exciting! I love the rare fandoms compilation idea. I may have to go and check out some of my favourite tiny fandoms that don't have much fic or podfic, and see if I can try this out. :)

Just to check I'm not misreading: is the rare fandoms/ships compilation purely for the Thematic week?

Yes, for now. Though I'm willing to take arguments, since even with the themes, it may be hard to find enough to record for really small fandoms/ships.
