Moving on, this is just like all the other Boot Camp's. You need to write fifty different AU settings, they can be as close or as different from themselves as canon as you wish, the only thing is they need to be different. (Note: I would count Harry and Hermione breaking up with Ginny and Ron and getting together before the epilogue, since they would be against canon and therefore AU.) Feel free with combining this with as many other challenges as you can, but you just can't combine the prompts in a linear story, but you can post your story as a one-shot or drabble collection. Sound good?

I think that there should be two AU ones, one were we can choose our own au and then one were we do fifty different ones. But you don't choose the fifty different, I only work well if I can choose my own worlds to work with. I think you should just do the regular old prompts. I am not a History geek, nor are most of the people on here I don't think, so there is no way that I will be able to write ones such WWI or a character gets sorted into a different house. I can only write characters canon, so I can't write them in other houses. There is just no way I can write a Slytherin!Harry or Ron.

So basically, I would like to have one were I choose one AU World to write 50 stories on, and one were I can choose 50 of my own AU ideas to write 50 stories with.

Oh, and sign me up please. :D

I've adding the prompts, which will be fifty different AU ones. Some will be pretty vague, but some will be detailed. If they're not up by the time you see this, post some idea's, I'd love them. ;D And I'll add you guys in a minute.

Not to be nitpicky or anything, I would just like to say that if there is going to be a boot camp for a single AU then you should probably change this to AU Diversity.

Though, personally I think that this should be a What If Boot Camp not an AU one.

8/7/2012 #10
I'd like to see a bunch of AUs that place the characters in totally different universes (this may be because I want to write the Snatchers as pirates). I don't really like the idea of altering the canon personality to have them in another house, or writing about Snape or Remus etc. -- but I think I could manage a few drabbles, so sign me up. 'What if' might be a good name for this if another AU one is planned...

Change of plan. After the thirty-first example, I couldn't think of anymore situations. So I wrote fifty word prompts, and you need to choose fifty different AU's to write about. It can be close to canon or as far from canon as you want it to be, the only rule is that all fifty of them need to be different from canon and the other's in some form. I would count Harry and Hermione getting together before the epilogue as AU, since that didn't happen in canon. This okay?
