Introduing a New Fan Fic Land Comm!

    First to the moderators, if this isn't allowed, I'm sorry, but I didn't see where it said it wasn't.  Delete it, or ask me and I'll remove it.  I honestly did check, but I could have overlooked something somewhere.  I also fully accept that this is not an excuse and take the blame that is due me if I've failed to read something important.

    Now to the rest of my friendly comm mates!  :-)  Many of you are probably familiar with the concept of land comms where the members compete in various activities to see who can gain the most points or reach a goal line first.  I thought it was a really neat concept when I first came across it but quickly found myself bored with the art competitions.  It's the fan fic I want, and all fan fic that I've geared this new land comm after.
    There are five teams -- one for comics, one for movies, one for TV shows, one for cartoons and anime, and one for books --, and each team will be striving to reach 5,000 points first.  Challenges will be both weekly (drabbles/short fics -- from 100 to 1,000 words) and monthly (longer fics -- 1,000 words and longer).  Other things may also be done to earn points as we go along.
    The URL is http://community.livejournal.com/fanficland, but there is a simple form that must be filled out before memberships can be approved.  The form is posted in the first message on the board and should be answered in a comment left to that message.  Please do not reply to this post if you are interested but post over at Fan Fic Land if you are as this is the only time I plan on bothering this wonderful comm with my own comm.

    I hope to see at least some of you there!  Thanks to the mods for this chance to share.  Thank you all for taking the time to read this post and for all the talent, work, and effort you already put into making the world of fan fic a bigger, brighter, and better place for us all!

Prompt: Stargate:Atlantis crossover prompt

Ok well - I'll leave a prompt.

This one has been biting at my heels for a while - ever since watching the finale, actually.

ETA: I don't appear to be able to add tags.


Hello Again

Hey All,

So here I am with a sad, sad list of fanfic ideas. Mostly just to demonstrate the variety of ways you can post an idea. It doesn't have to be some big long twisted, novel length thing. Mostly because you should be aiming to discuss it with other authors- add things in, take stuff out and two- lets face it- those trashy, slutty, overused storylines, are sometimes some of the fucking best.
Also- I will be adding an FAQ section to the profile, hopefully in the next day or so- so any questions, any questions at all, or any points you think should be included, leave us a message.
Oh and TAGS... you'll notice, or you'll notice soon, depending on when you drop by, that your LJ name is now part of a tag. Please use these if you happen to post an idea- simple because if you make several and someone likes one and would like to see any others, they can click that tag and come up just with your ideas. Nice, clean easy. One of my less moronic ideas I think.
A final note: two things have been brought up with me, one- please, please, please, don't think you have to post story's here. You can by all means, but if you prefer having them on your personal LJ or if your part of a comm, feel free to leave just a link here. Second, I've been asked about plot points being given away with posting what you were working with, with your story... or with the other story's in your group if you post it at the end of your story. Well, you don't actually have to post the 'summery' with your story, you can post it separately here if you'd like and link to it to minimize the exposure, that way readers have to actually going looking, instead of accidentally skimming over it.

Oh and yes, I didn't forget, also aiming for the world's longest post here... Thankyou too

Hello All

Oh Hi...

Somebody actually showed up... that's encouraging...

Please go read the profile if you haven't.

For those of you who have, I came across this principal a couple of years ago, with professional writers. Three got together and discussed story details and then all went off and wrote three very different books. It was wonderful. They also were running something of a competition by comparing sales records to see who's book sold better. However considering the nature of the idea's and story's here you probably shouldn't try that part.

Also for everyone who is interested- please post, Leave an idea, or a fandom or pairing you'd be interested in writing. That's how these type of things tend to get off the ground. Unlike other challenge comm's and such, one person can't really do all that much here. I will be offering support and ideas and participation where I can. But I'm one Slash writer and I only do so many fandoms and two other people writing 60 story's with me... yeah...

So jump in with both feet, and play nice.
