What is gen_challenge?
A sister community to yaoi_challenge
, and yuri_challenge
is an open fandom based com for gen fics and fanart and prompts. How does it work?
1. Make a prompt
A prompt consists of a fandom, one or more characters, and an idea for a story or artwork. For example: Lord of the Rings, Eowyn and Merry, "Calm before the storm". You can see some examples from Round 1 here
Anyone can leave a prompt, and prompts can be for any fandom. Leaving a prompt puts you under no obligation to participate further if you don't want to. So if you've had any plot bunnies that need a home, feel free to leave them here!
2. Claim a prompt
Prompts are then collected into a list and people choose which ones they want to use. You can pick any, as long as you don't pick your own.
3. Complete your work
Once you've got one or more prompts, you've got a deadline to create a fanfic or fanart on each prompt. If you can't finish it before the deadline, it's no problem to drop your claims.Want to know more?
We're currently in Round 2, in the stage of leaving prompts. You can leave a prompt (or more) here
About two days ago, Magnolia Mama asked if we could do recs. Because LJ is stupid and didn't automatically make me monitor the community (why would I want my own community on my flist? *Rolls eyes*), I didn't see it until now.
So in delayed response, the answer is that the purpose of the group is to be more or less archiveish. That said, there is no reason you can't point me in the author's direction, so that I can invite them here, or invite them here yourself. :) If you want to post for a friend who doesn't have an LJ, as long as you credit him or her, that's fine.
Sorry again for the delay!
I thought I'd toss this one out -- are recs allowed on this community? I've collected a few fics that deal with sibling relationships in my wandering about the fandom, but didn't want to post any links without checking first.
