I totally forgot about this until I was meeting with my prof about my writing portfolio yesterday. Well, we've got all of a handful of sign-ups but hey, I'm game if you are! Actually my DZ fic is something I'm going to be working my ass off on for my Creative Writing major capstone, amazingly.

So, just checking in to see that people are still interested. Spread the news around, still, because people could sign up late if they want.

Ta for now.

This is a tentative post, likely to be updated.
Wave Two

For this round writers will sign up for genre challenges. Writers are not required to pick one specific movie this time around, this is all about genre characteristics (and clichés). The stories written can be anything from serious to ridiculous, using clichés of a genre does not mean the story must be a parody. Feel free to refresh an old plot element! Add a new twist!

While claims this round are not for specific films/books/etc., writers are certainly allowed to follow plots of such as was done in the last wave.  

Sign-up: Until September 1, 2008
Preview event: November 15, 2008
Posting: January 15-31, 2009

Want to stake your claim? The format for commenting is below. The information is very basic. While I hope making a claim means that you’re committing to writing the fic, I won’t fault you for dropping out.

(See example claim post in the first comment.)

Please direct your questions to the FAQ post!

I'm curious if (a) anyone's still watching this come, and (b) is there any interest in a second wave? Whether you wrote before or not, I'd like to hear some input. Hell, I never finished my stories. *sigh* Another question related to this: Should I somehow get a theme for the next wave?

Title: Killing Time, Waiting For My Mutant Powers To Explode
Fandom: BtVS
Character, Pairing: Faith, Buffy/Faith
Rating: pg-13 (sexuality, swearing)
Disclaimer: not my characters
Notes: written for the alterego_thon This is an AU, inspired by Daniel Clowes's 'Ghost World' (both comic and movie). No hellmouth, everybody's human.

The only thing Faith really wants is Buffy. And superpowers.

Title: Soul Heirs
Author: shimere277
Rating: PG-13
Fandom/Claim: Drake’s Venture/Solaris
Pairings: Thomas/Francis; Elizabeth/Leicester
Summary: Stellar explorer Frank Drake receives a message from his old friend Walter Devereux, summoning him to the mysterious Solaris.
Note: The general story and many of the plot twists follow Soderberg’s version of Solaris pretty closely, so if you haven’t seen the movie, you will be spoiled. I have left out a few of the major plot points - for example, Kelvin’s reaction to the first Rhea is unnecessary given Drake’s prior relationship to Doughtie; I’ve omitted Gibarian’s son entirely as a symbol unnecessary and difficult to convey without the use of visuals. The relationship between the characters is obviously different, the most obvious example being that the relationship between Gordon and Snow is nothing like the relationship between Tudor and Dudley.
And the ending – well, that’s the way the movie ends. There are no answers – only choices.

Title: Rebels and Amagons
Author: Vilakins
Rating : Gen
Fandom/claim: Blake's 7 in the style of Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome (a classic 1930s British children's novel) though none of the B7 characters are children
Pairings: None
Summary: After the shootout on Gauda Prime, Vila, Avon, Dayna, and Tarrant end up on the shores of a lake...
Note: I have lifted five of Roger's lines from various books and given them to Vila (Roger's similarity to a young Vila was what inspired me), but the rest is mine.

Holy cow, is it really 2008? Damn. O____O

Well, since it is the new year, it's time to open up the gates to posting your completed fics! Now don't worry if you're not done. (*cough*like me*cough*) You've got a lot of time. I looked on the group page and was surprised to see I'd said April 1 was the latest due date, but hey, I'm not complaining at the moment. LOL. 

So, you're welcome to start posting as you like! To clarify: you are welcome to post to your personal blog/site and here and link from wherever. You're also welcome to link from here to your personal page (since I know there was a concern about posting mature content to LJ). Oh, if you hadn't noticed, I've set the group setting to "some adult material" now that LJ has allowed for some labeling on journals. 

Anyway, good luck!

Title: Court/Ship
Author: executrix
Rating: PG-13
Fandom/Claim: Firefly; Emma (Jane Austen)
Pairings: Inara/Simon, Kaylee/Jayne, Mal/Nandi
Summary: Although Companions are trained to guard their own emotions, some of them develop harmless weaknesses…such as a fondness for matchmaking.
Note: A number of lines are taken unaltered from dear Miss Austen's work, and put to other purposes. This is also true of certain lines springing from the workrooms of Mutant Enemy. Spoilers for all of Firefly, AU after Heart of Gold.

(It's Jan. 1 where I am & I'm thinking to sleep most of the day, so I'm posting it now.)

* Title- Avonhawke
* Author- entropy_house
* Rating -Two men are substituted for a man/woman romantic couple, but it's about at the same level of non-sex as the movie- PG, I think.
* Fandom/claim Characters from the Blakes 7 universe take over roles in the movie Ladyhawke
* Pairings - Blake/Avon (although there is no nookie)
* Summary - ReaLife kept me from doing anything clever (didn't get to START until Dec. 22), so basically I rewrote Ladyhawke. If you haven't seen the movie, this will spoiler you for nearly every scene. As a large part of the movie's charm for me lay in slowly figuring out what was happening, I won't give you a proper summary.

Ladyhawke is a fantasy involving a heroic knight who rebels and his lover who has no choice but to follow him, but who would follow anyway (they are kept close but unable to consummate their love), a good-natured thief, a failed priest who seems to have special insight, a wicked and insane despotic ruler who desires the hero's lover, and the despot's savage knight minion.

Blake's 7 is a science fiction series involving a heroic high-class citizen who rebels and his unofficial second in command who has no choice but to follow him, but who would follow anyway (albeit complaining the whole time) (they are kept close but unable to consummate their love due to TV at the time- it was fairly obvious to fans that they were infatuated with each other), a good-natured thief, a failed telepath who comes up with a lot of semi-religious platitudes, a wicked and insane despotic ruler who desires the hero's lover, and the despot's savage high-class citizen minion. (There are a few other main characters, but I dispensed with most of them except for Zen, the computer that runs Blake's spaceship. Zen becomes the knight's horse, Goliath.)

Around 9,000 words. Slash strongly implied, but nothing more explicit than a kiss actually occurs.Collapse )
