For those who do not know what a ficathon is here's a quick explanation. Each person in a ficathon puts in a request (or several – in this case 2) for a story, these can be as specific or as broad as they like, and are guaranteed one story will be written for them. In return they agree to write one story for someone else (minimum 800 words) and to meet the required deadline for hand in that signals the end of the ficathon. No one apart from the organiser knows who's writing whose requests until stories come in, so you get a - hopefully nice - surprise when the deadline is up; a fanfic specially written to your specifications.
