[Round 6 signups] Alternate Universes

SIGNUPS ARE NOW CLOSED


Thanks to everyone who came out and voted for this round.

The focus for this round will be ALTERNATE UNIVERSES!

This can include canonical AUs (BtVS Wishverse or Angel Birthdayverse, for example). Or the classic All-Human AUs or Penguin AUs. Or AUs arising from variations on canon events (like “BtVS season 3 where Faith doesn’t kill the mayor’s aide” or “BtVS season 7 where Tara didn’t die.”)

No additional thematic challenge this month, just have fun with the alternate universes!

Artists are free to create original art, or create art inspired by previously written stories for the community (with author's permission).

Schedule Round 6:
Sunday August 7: poll goes up
Wednesday August 10th: sign ups go live
Saturday August 13th: assignments go out
Saturday Sept 10: assignments due

Remember our standard rules:
+ No slashing, no canon-pairings, no popular fandom-pairings.
+ No romance, no UST, no lust, no sex as emphasis
+ You may offer two story prompts, if you wish. If you are assigned two prompts, you are only required to write one of the prompts.
+ There is no upper limit, but you have to write at least 500 words.
+ If for some reason you cannot write your story, or it's gonna be late, let me know, either by LJ PM or at punch_kicker15 at ymail dot com.

Artists
At this point, there is a pretty substantial body of work to choose from so - you can choose to apply the artist challenge to an older piece (with the author's permission), work with an author for this round, or create an original piece. There is no additional thematic challenge this round for any art you create.

[masterlist] round 5: Giles

Thanks to everyone who was excited to get this going again! We have some great writing and art this round.

fic:
mierke wrote "Best festival ever" (Giles, OCs, PG-13) for baphrosia
punch_kicker15 wrote "The Day Job" (Giles, G) for mierke
baphrosia wrote "Pointy Horns and Black Hats" (Giles, OCs, PG) for punch_kicker15

art:
rbfvid created two awesome artworks: cover art for "Someday My Prince Will Come" by punch_kicker15, and a banner for "A Tumult of Kinsfolk" by baphrosia

Take some time to check these out, y'all!

Round Five: Best Festival Ever (Giles) for baphrosia

Title: Best festival ever
Characters: Giles, OCs
Rating: PG-13
Words: 1,579
Recipient/Prompt: baphrosia
Three elements you'd like included: Telling girls he was a founding member of Pink Floyd, something supernatural, his father
Setting: Pre-series, before going back to being a watcher.
A/N: I haven't yet read the comics, so I have absolutely no idea of any of Giles' background that was revealed. Also, English isn't my first language, and I'm pretty sure it isn't as British as it should be... Hope you still enjoy!

Summary: After playing at a music festival, Ripper tries to pick up a girl. Things take an... interesting turn.

Best Festival Ever

Round 5: Pointy Horns and Black Hats (Giles) for Punch_kicker15

Title: Pointy Horns and Black Hats
Characters:  Giles, OCs
Rating:  PG
Word count: 3250
Recipient/prompt:  punch_kicker15
Three elements you'd like included: 1) Timeframe: early in Giles’s Watcher career, 2) A supernatural or magic threat brings out Giles’ ruthless side, 3) A weapon
Two things you don't want: canonical vamps (Angel, Drusilla, Spike, etc.), the Eyghon crowd.
Warnings:  OC death
Setting:  1980-ish, England
Betas: foxstarreh, sparrow2000 (many thanks to Sparrow for Brit-picking and all-around beta-ing).
