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:
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*
