The Ouroboros Mix follows the guidelines of a general remix challenge. Participants submit a Homestuck work they have previously written, which another assigned participant must remix. In 2012, the main challenge took place on Livejournal and had 16+ participants. A full list of works can be found here. There was also a "silver linings" remix round which never came to fruition due to issues with the Livejournal software. A silver linings round involves remixing a fanfic with a happier tone, even if the fanfic already dealt with a sweet subject matter.
In 2013, the Ouroboros Mix moved entirely to AO3. This iteration of the Mix had a total of 54 works produced for the challenge. There is no indication that the silver lining round will be attempted in any further years.
Participants must have at least three non-crossover and non-cowritten 500+ word fanfics written for Homestuck. Only one story is required to be remixed from each participant, and a participant can select which assigned fanfic to remix based on any sort of trigger tags. A participant must not replace or erase pairings from the original fanfic. The finished work(s) must be 1,000+ words and cannot be a crossover with any other series.
