The Blast From The Past challenge is officially open from now until
! ETA: extended until October
8 15! Join the community
, pick a classic fandom, pick a classic challenge, and put 'em both together. If you want ideas, check out the userinfo
for a list of challenges and fandoms, and for the basic rules, which can be summarized as:
- no OT posts, only stories
- if it's dead, it's eligible
- please use the tags and lj-cut
Any length welcome (unless it's a challenge that has a specific length to it), and drop a comment to this or any admin post if you have any questions or want more tags added. Yay!
On or around October 1, I will collect up the posted stories and set up an archive. I make no firm promises, but I have vague ambitions of recruiting fan artists and vidders to arrange small fannish prizes like custom icons or vidlets for participants (to be awarded randomly based on matching fandom).
There are no official signups or assignments -- this is a low-stress, low-committment thing and is just going to run on typical flashfic rules: post early and often and have fun! (In turn, please note that if you do win a prize, there is no harm-no foul if the donor doesn't have a chance to follow through, so don't do it for that reason!)
If you would like to contribute one of those small fannish prizes, please drop a comment here with your offered donation and whatever fandoms you'd be willing to donate in -- and note that if you do, that is all the more incentive for people to jump in and write stories for your fandom(s), since that means they have a chance to win that prize. *grins*
Please do spread the word -- if you would like to link using the spiffy poster eregyrn
has made for us, here's the code:
