Fic authors and readers - the Goldenlake Fanfiction Decathlon is now on!

The Goldenlake Decathlon is a super fun fanfiction challenge where authors attempt to complete 10 fic-events (5 track events and 5 field events) for a chosen couple or character during May. Authors stake their claim on a couple or character, challenge themselves to finish all 10 events, and cheer each other on while doing it!

Guidelines can be found here. It's a ton of fun - and the Decathlon fic is awesome :)

The day of hearts and flowers is on the horizon...

... and what better way to celebrate than to participate in Goldenlake's Secret Admirers Exchange?

Sign up here from the 23rd January to 1st February, with five pairings you would like to have written for you. (Please note that only one out of the five will usually be written!)

You'll then be assigned to write 800+ words for another member (based off your list of will/will not write), and all fic will be posted between 14th and 24th February.

Look forward to seeing you over there!

The "most wonderful time of the year" is drawing close - and that means Ficmas over at Fief Goldenlake!

What is Ficmas?

A Tamora Pierce-based fanfiction 'Secret Santa' or 'exchange', where you sign up to write fic for another person, and receive a fic written for you, all in the holiday spirit. You'll give us a short list of what kind of fic you'd like, and we'll take it from there.

Want to know more? The Guidelines are all listed here.

Our sign-ups sheet is here.

Hope to see you joining in! Don't forget that we have a specially-designated Mastiff board right now for all your discussion needs on the latest release.
 It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Goldenlake Supersite is now open for testing! Please head to http://fiefgoldenlake.com and have a look around!

The site aims to bring all our projects under the same roof:
- The King's Own can now be found at http://fanfiction.fiefgoldenlake.com/
- The Podfic Archive can be found at http://fiefgoldenlake.com/podfic.html
- The Quasi-Canon Records can be found at http://fiefgoldenlake.com/qc.html
- The Giantkiller Library can be found at http://fiefgoldenlake.com/giantkiller.html
- Neal's Guide to Fandom can be found at http://fiefgoldenlake.com/fandomguide.html

Several of the projects are still being worked on. The Tamora Pierce Wiki and Fanart Gallery are under construction and further announcements will be made down the track.

So: We would love for you to head over to the site, and test it out! Feedback and suggestions can be left in this forum: http://fiefgoldenlake.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=webpage :)

Thank you very much to everyone who worked on the site, and especially Ubiquitous for spending hours putting everything together and making the site functional and fantastic-looking!

Malorie's Peak Prompts
Prompt #50 is Milestones.

A milestone marks a significant event or change in a life stage. Every character has them; from the shaggy knight who reaches 60, to the girl page who starts her fourth year, and the lovers who finally marry. A milestone could be 25 years of Kingship, or the first steps of a baby whose mother struggled for years to conceive. It can be the achievement of a mage medallion, or the arrival of a witch at the university she has long dreamed of attending.

Milestones mean different things and come about in different ways. They demand context. Find your milestone, and tell us its story.

Congratulations on reaching 50 fantastic Malorie's Peak Prompts, Goldenlake!

This Friday (Aussie time) thekingsown.org will be moving to a new home, on the Goldenlake Supersite.

At this point, we anticipate minimal downtime and data loss (particularly because we will backup before the move). However, we recommend that if you are worried about losing fics that you do take steps to back it up before then.

Once the move is complete, we'll post up a link to the new address and the site (please note that parts of the super site are still under construction).

Thank you for your patience :)
