[Challenge Fic] K-I-S-S-I-N-G [Sep. 21st, 2005|07:57 pm]
Follow the Sunset

Uhm. It occurs to me about a day too late that '12 AM EST, Sept 21st, 2005' might very well have meant *last* night at midnight. Crap. If that is indeed the case, I'm going to have to beg leniency for my quite-honest misunderstanding. ^_^; As it is, I'm like three minutes under the deadline as it is so I'ma hurry up through the bit about fic barely finished as in *just* barely like five minutes ago barely, somehow drifted from the challenge elements presented but the required items are still present and the fic is still very rough, will undergo much spit and polish in coming weeks but for now-- *breathes*

Author: TJ Dragonblade

Rated: 13+

The title is, of course, a reference to the schoolyard rhyme. All together now: 'Kou and Doku, sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G! First comes love, then comes marriage; then comes'...uhm. Wait. Which one gets the baby carriage, here?

Here goes!

Name: Tyrne J
Genre: Fic. Fanart (but only if you like Paint fanart, as I'm currently crying at the loss of GIMP), humor, shounen-ai/yaoi, crappy-crappy-smut (ahahaha), angst, name it, and I'll try it, with varying degrees of success

Welcome back everyone! I know the Snowed In Challenge went bust this year, but ah well. It was a good idea wasn't it? But we have the summer heat back, and all the joy and sillyness that comes with Summer Vacation. Without further adue, here's this year's challenge. sychogrl and I had some fun brainstorming this one. heh.

2005 Summer Detour

Keep the Summer Theme, just as last year. That should go without saying. This also goes for any newcomers to drop by to try it out.

Part 1: Post Your Specialty: Make an individual post right here in the community.


Preferred Elements:

Part 2:Requirements: To be used in any way you wish in the stories or art. As long as they are present in some way or form!

For fanfiction:Smores and Mango

For fanart:Water Sports!

Part 3: Audience Participation. That's right. We're asking you, the artists and writers to give us ideas. They can be anything you can think of within reason(and our short list of rules and regs). Reply to the other participants' posts. Giving ideas for something they can write. Characters to drop by, crazy situations, off color lines. Anything! It's up to you guys to see if we can challenge each other and to have fun doing it. See what we can come with, and how much fun we can have fun while talking amongst ourselves. Even us lazy mods will be taking part in it.

Part 4: Deadline Now until 12 AM EST, Sept 21st, 2005.

We start immediately! That's right, as of this very minute. Our ending date will be as last year. The end of summer in the western hemisphere, and onset of fall weather.


And that's all. Yes, we enjoyed the Fork in the Road sub-challenge so much last year, we thought it'd be fun to see what we could do with an entire summer's worth of time to play with it. *evil grin*

For all newcomers, and vic--er veterans alike to the community and it's basic idea go to here to review the basic rules and regulations to keep in mind the idea behind this community.

And now, i'm finished talking. Let's have some fun! ^_~

PS: Several entries may be made stemming from a single post. It runs the entire summer, after all. Plenty of time to stew ideas. We stil have to think of a new sub-challenge too. So keep an eye out for that in another month or so!

It's that time again. (Wheel of Morality, Turn Turn Turn...) [Jun. 19th, 2005|01:54 am]

Greetings, from your friendly lurking co-mod!

Yes, indeed, it's the time of year again to think about summer. Warm weather, vacations for the lucky few, that kinda thing. Feel like writing? If so, the Compass is in need of fic submission.

We were a little bummed that the Snowed in Challenge didn't go over too well, but that was partly our fault. I tried for a story, but the muses just wouldn't bite. So we let it slide by...

Now, though, it's summer, and hopefully summer comes with a bit more free time. (Yeah, right!) So we're issuing another Challenge. Look for more information from aliaswestgate in days to follow. Expect more variation on the Fork in the Road theme, as it seems to work well for most everyone involved.

Until then!

non challenge. [Dec. 29th, 2004|09:35 am]

[Current Music |Point of No Return- Phantom of the Opera]

Title: Menomaeni(Before One's Eyes)
Rated: R(for violence, rape, disturbing images, and DESTRUCTION OF ART *gasp*)
Summary: The Sanzo party comes to a literally perfect city where all its citizens are brutally destroyed. The city is ruled by madman, who uses a young girl he has kidnapped and controlled as a paintbrush to make his visions of the canvas true and very real...
Disclaimer: Slightly inspired my Phantom of The Opera(NOT the movie, damnit!)...so tips to Andrew Loyd Webber.
Spoilers: Some to Hakkai/Kanan(wait. no, that's the NEXT chpater. nevermind.)
Notes: I can't write yaoi. I love yaoi with all my yaoi loving heart. But I can't write it. So no m/m pairings, and i'm truely sorry.
Inspired also by My Chemical Romance(I Never Told You What I Did For A Living) and Sum 41(Welcome to Hell/88). The songs are ironic to the actually piece.

Enter your nightmares when dreams formilize and become reality...Collapse )

that was the first chapter, and i'm currently writing the second. please critize, i need feedback. this is only the second fic i've written(but not came up with.)

Welcome back everyone! It's the holiday season and the weather has turned chilly. You know what that means? Time for a new fanfic/art challenge!

We present you with:

Snowed In.

Here's the general rules and regs.

1: Winter is here! So let's have a wintery theme to our fiction. What can we put our favorite parts of the cast through in relation to it? Lots of leeway to play here, folks.

2. Now for the body of the challenge. Here's the first of two things you can use in relation to the fiction. Think of them as moderator challenges...

Challenge 1 from the mind of sychogrl: Okay, so everyone is snowed in. Stir crazy and bored out of their minds waiting for the storm to end... when IT happens! Something so bizarre and unspeakable that it renders all boredom dead on contact! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to tell us what IT is. *cue Mission Impossible music*

Challenge 2 from the mind ofaliaswestgate: "Short Days, Long Nights". The phrase leaves opportunity for all kinds of mischief(nice and naughty too). What happens one day and/or on one of those nights? Was it rauchy, was it cute? How crazy did the cast drive each other? Come up with something regarding that phrase. It leaves many options to what can be done, after all. ^_~

3: Deadlines: It begins December 21st and will end with the advent of spring on March 20th. For now, Winter Solstice has heralded the cold, and with it opportunity to play.

All entries must be in by that time to be counted as part of the Snowed In Challenge.

The usual options apply for all fanfic and fanart, regarding this community.

1: All pairings welcome. This is from tv canon, manga canon. This is pairings some hate, incest, squick, shounen-ai/yaoi, shoujou-ai/yuri, *gasp* hentai(as in perversions, not tentacle rape, got it?), het pairings. Anything(except mary sues) goes.
The type of fiction is welcome as well. General, comedy, whatever! All artists welcome, whether it be of the word, or the paintbrush.

2: Try something new. If you specialize in one pairing, try another. If you like a yaoi/shounen-ai, try yuri/shoujou-ai, or just pick a different pairing that's entirely different than what you normally write or draw. If you do drama, try comedy. If you specialize in romance--try straight drama. If you go for comedy, try general fiction. It wouldn't be a challenge if you didn't have something different to see what you are capable of writing or drawing, now would it? These are only suggestions, let your imagination do the rest....

3: No original characters, unless they are background to your story and help move it along in some way or another. No Mary Sues, no exceptions. Main characters must be someone from either the animated series in its many incarnations, or the animated movie or the manga. Gensomaden Saiyuki, Saiyuki:Gaiden, Saiyuki:Reload, Saiyuki:Reload Gunlock, Saiyuki: Requiem. No exceptions here either.

4: All entries must be behind a LJ Cut-tag. No exceptions.

5: Your Format: to be used for all entries. The story is NOT required to mention the challenge in its title, by the way.

Rating: (think movie ratings; G, PG, PG-13,R, NC-17)
story, art, behind a LJ cut

8: Have a little fun. ^_^

Even your mods are taking part in this, of course. So let the games begin! *tosses a snowball at Sycho-chan and runs off*
