The track listing is below; you can see which songs have been claimed and which are still open. Lyrics for every song on the album are here (thanks to shinysherlock for the link) and a youtube playlist of the full album is here (each video has lyrics as well).
also: if you aren’t interested in participating but you have followers who might be, please do me a solid and reblog for the signal boost - I think it would be really neat if to bring together writers who haven’t necessarily crossed paths before.
I first posted about this a few weeks ago, suggesting that it could be fun to take a leaf out of redscudery's notebook and do another album-based fic collection, based on Paul Simon's album Graceland. A fair number of people expressed interest… so let's do it!
If you’re interested in participating, reblog and add your name. (If you’re not interested in participating but are kindly disposed toward the project, please reblog for the signal boost! I’d love it if this project ends up drawing contributions from a wide range of people.) If you can take a minute to go through the reblog history and add your name to the most current version of the list, that’s great… but I will reblog in any case in a few days, with everyone’s names filled in.
1) The Boy in the Bubble - redscudery
2) Graceland - onethousandhurrahs

I figure that we’ll set a tentative deadline of… I dunno, September 15th? It can be earlier or later, whatever works best for the participants.
* I want to stake only a tentative claim to this song… I have a fairly well-formed idea for it, but I’m not especially attached to writing it, so if you really want the song, go ahead and claim it.
