challenge #118: genderswap
Someone isn't the gender they were in canon-- either canon. Why? How? Or do you just want to show their altered self/selves in action? Write exactly 100 or 200 words for the prompt. Use whatever means or explanation you please; be creative and have fun. Any crossover touching the greater Buffyverse (Buffy, Angel, Fray, and/or the comic seasons) is welcome, but please post each drabble behind a cut, and tag your posts appropriately.
This challenge will run until APRIL 15.
There's one left over from last year....

Here are your instructions:
1.) Pick one (1) or two (2) fandoms-- and, heck, I'm not going to list them all out again. I'll be generous and say, anything I've committed more than 1000 words in over the last twelve months.
2.) Name one (1) character or one (1) pairing of any type.
3.) Give me a brief prompt or phrase. (You may specify "do not includes" also, but try to keep the list short; and I don't do NC-17 or incest at all.) Or-- you may ask for a one-shot connected to any of my eligible-fandom past works.
My available roster of fic is at the AO3. (The fandom list at the top of the profile page is especially handy for sorting purposes, if you're looking for favorites or checking which fandoms are eligible. )
Any questions or concerns? Feel free to ask. But get those requests in ASAP!
Thanks to kerravonsen, tvashti, avamclean, jerseyfabulous, maevebran, beer_good_foamy, kerrykhat, and graycardinal for playing.
challenge amnesty will continue for the next week; but the competition is done!
For lo, I am back from my birthday and pleased with your fictive offerings. *grin* We have 11 winners this year, who have earned a combined 18,000 words! So, start thinking about what you might want to request. Whatever you ask for must be a one-shot, though it can be set in the 'verse of one of my previous fic, if you want.
Your request should include: (1) one character or pairing; (2) one prompt/phrase; and (3) one fandom or cross of fandoms. I'll put the request post up later today.
I'm currently willing to write in any fandom(s) from the following list: Buffy/Angel-verse; Stargate SG-1/Atlantis; Firefly/Serenity; Eureka; Star Trek XI; Fast and the Furious series; Leverage; The Mummy/Mummy Returns; The Dresden Files; Falling Skies; Person of Interest; Terra Nova; or Grimm. (Anything else, you could try convincing me, but I give no guarantees.)
I don't do NC-17, or incest. Just about anything else is fair game. Ask here if you have questions. If you're going with a previous 'verse, my available roster of fic is most easily sorted through at the AO3.
( Here are the final standings:Collapse )
fandom: Terra Nova
disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not.
notes: Spoilers specifically for TN 1.6 "Bylaw" and 1.7 "Nightfall", with bits from further episodes. These drabbles complete the series. They end before the season does; but the stories I want to tell after this point can't be reduced to this format. So. More later; but this is it for now.

Disclaimer: Smallville belongs to DC and Warner Bros.; Velveteen and friends belong to Seanan McGuire; the drabble belongs to me.

#5 (#75) • “Waltzing With Bears”
Title: "Waltzing with Bears"
Challenge: #78/#75 (small favor) - amnesty

( Over more coffee, Verity listened.Collapse )
( NotesCollapse )The Velveteen Vs. universe is a series of online stories by Seanan McGuire. Offering a complete listing is somewhat complicated by the fact that the stories appear in three distinct places: Seanan's dedicated Web site, her professional Livejournal, and her unofficial fannish Livejournal (note that this last includes both Velveteenish and non-Velveteenish things, owing to the state of the tags Over There). [With respect to the fannish LJ, it's also appropriate to note that while it is in no way a Big Secret, references to it are not and should not be made on the professional LJ in order to preserve its fannishness.] As a rule, the fannish LJ gets new Velveteen material first, then the pro LJ, then (eventually) the Web site.

Time being what it is, I'm going to post what I have now, with the second half of this to follow as fast as I can get them up. These are the first three of yet another "six degrees" sequence (can you tell how much that format amuses me by now?).
