What is FanFest?
A prompt-and-claim challenge, FanFest is a celebration of all the fandom things we want to see, want to write and want to make.
What kind of prompts can I submit?
Any fandom (TV, book, movie, comic, etc), any character or pairing, any prompt.
What can I make if I claim a prompt?
Anything! You can write fic, make a vid, graphics, podfic, crafts, photography--- get creative! Do what the prompt inspires you to do. All ratings, all genre, all material. Artist/Author is responsible for posting ratings and any warnings they feel are applicable.
A general guideline for minimum amount of material is below, use your best judgement if your material is of a different type.
+ 1,000 words fic
+ 10 icons or 2 wallpapers
+ 1:00 minute of video
Dates for Round 1
Prompting: Open NOW! until Thursday, February 24th @ 10pm EST (approximately)
Claiming/Posting: Opens Friday, February 24th until March 31st
Please read the instructions. They're easy, I promise.
1) You are not required to leave a prompt in order to claim a prompt. Same in reverse, you are not required to claim a prompt if you leave prompts. You may submit as many prompts as you'd like. You may claim your own prompts.
2) For consistency, please spell out the name of the fandom & characters and place crossovers and pairings in alphabetical order using first name. This will make it easier for people to search the prompts when it comes time for claiming. The only exception is RPF where the acronym 'RPF' can simply be listed after the name of the fandom (ie. Farscape RPF).
& = friendship
/ = romantic-type relationship
&or/ = either one
Stargate Universe, Camile Wray, thinking of home
Firefly/Supernatural, River Tam &or/ Sam Winchester, dealing with older brothers
Battlestar Galactica/Leverage, Laura Roslin/Nate Ford, the right way to steal an election
Farscape RPF, Ben Browder &or/ Claudia Black, airports
3) You may indicate 'artist's choice' if you don't want to specify either a character or a prompt. 'Team' or 'Any' is also fine. You may not indicate what medium you prefer (ie. fic, graphic, etc.) nor can you indicate what rating you prefer. That is entirely up to the artist/author.
4) If you don't care for a category, simply skip over it. Bashing of anyone's prompts or material made for prompts will get you banned. No exceptions.
5) HAVE FUN!!! :D
We have a handy-dandy Google docs form here:
Later, there will be a claiming period in which participants may claim prompts and make fan 'stuff'. Any and all material is acceptable (fic, graphics, vids, podfic, knitted hats, etc.).
