Ever wondered what would happen if Scotty accidentally beamed Kirk back to the Academy? Or maybe you’ve wondered what Mal and the rest of Serenity’s crew thought the evening of Wash and Mr. Universe’s funeral.

For the All-Fandom Challenge, your options are many, but the task is simple: write a 300 (or more) word story for a fandom you enjoy, but haven’t written in (much) yet. So Ringers, it’s time to boldly go where no elf-lover has gone before. Browncoats should be advised that it’s not lupus, and if you got LOST, maybe Mulder and Scully can show you that the truth is out there.

There are three prompts to start the fun:

Option 1: One of Each
Pick a Genre —
a. Romance
b. Mystery
c. Humor

Pick a Pairing —
a. Canon Character + Canon Character
b. Canon Character + Own Character
c. Canon Character + A Pet, an animal, or an element of nature (i.e.: a thunderstorm, a carnivorous plant)

Pick a Conflict —
a. Trapped in a small space
b. “No hablo Clingon/Mandarin/Vogon”
c. Experiencing Technical Difficulties

Option 2: Point of View Party
Choose 2-5 characters from your fandom, and write about the same event from their individual points of view. This challenge’s event: A birth or death.

Option 3: Roll Credits
Tell me your preferred fandom, specifying a particular incarnation if more than one are available (i.e. Star Trek, Star Trek DS 9, etc.). I will then visit the Internet Movie Data Base page for that film/show, and using a polyhedral die, will randomly select your character.

To illustrate: If I were to choose “Roll Credits” for the LotR:TTT, and the die showed #7, I would write my story about Saruman the White, since Christopher Lee is the 7th actor listed on the IMDB page for the film. If I rolled a 1 instead, I would write about Samwise Gamgee, since Sean Astin is the first actor in the (alphabetical) credits.

Any randomly selected characters must be requested before 1st June and will be emailed to participants on or before 5th June. Writing will end on the 30th, at which time, completed works should be emailed to the address in my profile. You will then receive a story by another participant for whatever beta help you feel comfortable giving. If there is a particular fandom you do not feel comfortable reading, please let me know before May 30th. Betas will have 1 week to read and comment on stories and send them back to their original authors, who then have 2 weeks to tweak and post their stories, on or about July 21st.

Questions may be directed to the organizers through PM, email or post here to the forum.

I would like to do option 3, but can't decide which fandom to use. What do you think:

Buffy? Angel? Eureka? Star Trek TOS?

I'm willing to do whatever you decide ... pm me, please!

I also like flavor number three, but I have the same problem as Nancy. I could possibly do Charmed, Hitchhiker's Guide, Pirates of the Caribbean, Narnia, and Starwars (though I'm not really wanting to do Starwars). I guess if I had to narrow it down I would do Pirates of the Caribbean or Hitchhiker's Guide, whichever of those you like best. Very Happy

Okay, we'll solve this the way my college years Dungeon Master always did: Ladies, high, middle, or low? (Just pick one.)

Uh...do we all have to choose something different?

I guess middle, then.

*chuckles* D&D noob. Razz

I would like option 3, and I believe I will take a crack at Star Trek: DS9, as all I have ever done in that genre before amounts to about three paragraphs that I found out are hopelessly inaccurate. Rolling Eyes (If you have a choice between seasons on the IMDB lists, I'm most familiar with seasons 1, 6, and 7.)

ok, just to check... it *has* to be a fandom we haven't written much for? only I have only 2 fandoms, only one of which I haven't written much for - and that one is pretty much slash centric : ~(

Eira, you get Hitch Hiker's Guide. Smile

How High, Middle, Low works is: the options are listed in whatever order, and a D-6 is thrown once for each option. So, lets say I had the chance to make out hard-core with Karl Urban, Christian Bale, or Hugh Jackman, and just couldn't make up my mind. Twisted Evil To solve that most horrible of problems to ever befall a horny straight girl by "High, Middle, Low", I'd pick high, middle or low, then grab a D-6, roll once for Karl (got a 4), once for Christian (6), and once for Hugh (1). If I'd picked "middle", I'd end up making out hard-core with Karl Urban (and I could die a happy woman), but if I'd picked low I'd spend some up-close-and-personal time with Hugh (and I'd still die a happy woman).

PipIo: There's nothing that says you have to write something sex-related (it just seems to be a default setting for my pervy mind). Smile There's nothing in the site guidelines that say you can't have a gay couple *in* the story, just that they can't make out etc. etc.
