Rosawyn

Fandom: Open, but certainly quite limited by canon characters

(Yes, Sherlock from the BBC show is an obvious candidate, but he is not the only possible character; an argument could be made that Castiel from Supernatural also fits, and no doubt other characters with whom I am not familiar.)

Issuer of Challenge: Rosawyn

Victors:

Trickster Tricked by The Death Frisbee, Unrequited by ckorkows, secrets by starlight.moon.princess.

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It:

Write a realistic and believable fic for a non-canon pairing where one half of the pairing is an asexual virgin. You must keep everyone in character to the best of your ability.

Please note: there is no requirement that this be a "romance" story. You can certainly write the "pairing" as entirely one-sided.

There is no minimum or maximum word-count, but oneshots under 5000 words will very likely be read and reviewed by me much faster than longer fics.

There is also no time limit.

Quick question: would we be expected to post about our fills here, or would we PM the issuer of the challenge?

You can do both! But you should totally post here, too, so we can all see! ...but then also to make sure that they know, you can also PM.

Alright. So my challenge is quite labor intensive. On my profile, I have posted a list of 64 themes. The goal is to write something for these themes. You may accept the Mega Grand Challenge and attempt to write something for every theme (preferrably all within the same fandom) or just pick and choose themes to write for. To become a victor at this challenge, you need only write for one of the 64 themes. I'm currently in the process of completing the Mega Grand Challenge for Bleach (I've been working on it for just over a year now, and just recently passed the half-way mark). Please PM me if you decide to take up this challenge; I probably won't be checking this thread very often in the future, so that's the best way to get yourself added to the victors. I'll add your name and a link to the story associated with this. If you're going for the Mega Grand Challenge, PM me anyway, and I'll add you to the next category below of Works-in-Progress. :)

No time limit is in effect, nor are there any restrictions on qualifying length.

Works in Progress:

Sixty-four Little Stars, by reminiscent-afterthought, Sailor Moon

The Inoue Girls and Boy, by reminiscent-afterthought, Digimon

Timeframe Darkin? for Moose of the Brotherly Love? And does he (the mascot) have a name?

I never set a timeframe...just whenever you get one out. And nope, I don't think our moose has a name. At least, I don't know of one. You could add a name in your story if you'd like.

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It: Write a story with the main protagonist from your other story, but make him/her completely opposite to their normal self. For example, if he's is normally a kind, caring person, make him cold and calculating; if he's witty, make him dumb; or, if it's a guy who has many lover girls, turn him gay! Etc., you get the idea.

However, all other characters are their normal selves. How do they react to this sudden change? What problems it causes? What are the reasons? Is there a cure? Show us! :D Any genre are welcome, comedy or thriller or even a horror. The only condition is that you don't make a new OC for this, but change an existing one, so we can compare their normal self and the new self. :D

@Ventisquear

I wanted to ask what length shall the story be of?

Also can the story be a crossover?

Does it need to be complete?

Should the story be set in canon?

Can it be set in after the anime/book/game/ETC is complete?

Does it need to have connection with the characters the main hero/heroine being portrayed in the Fandom as in cannon have? I mean like person 1 has relationship of family and all with person 2. Does it need to be there as well? If it needs to does the relationship needs to be same?

Man! lots of question. Hahaha. Oh well! :D

(Edited to add more questions)

9/4/2012 . Edited 9/4/2012 #16
Ventisquear

I never cared about the word count. A drabble or 10k story, all is fine with me. More than 10 k would be bit problem only because I don't have much time these days. I'd prefer if it was finished, though an open end is fine with me. Any genre is fine, including the crossover.

However, the point of this is to make the other characters think that the main protagonist went crazy, for whatever reason. It doesn't have to be set in canon, but it should be set in the universe of your story from which you took the character (let's call it "original story"). The setting and other characters are the same; only the main protagonist is different, "OOC". You can make it a crack story, but you can also make it serious and full of difficult decisions. It can be a prequel or sequel or an episode of the original story, or it can be AU to it.

For example, in the original story the main protagonist is Jack, a secret agent with brilliant mind; he has a girlfriend Jill and a best friend Bob. But for this challenge, Jack will suddenly become very clumsy - he can't walk from one end of the room to another without tripping twice; and he litarally can't put 2 and 2 together. Maybe it's because he's drunk and now he makes fool of himself and they will all laugh at it tomorrow. Or, maybe it's because the enemy damaged his brain and now he's dangerous to himself and others, and the only solution is to kill him. What will Jill and Bob do?

If I am going to make it a crossover than how can I make it an original story? If it is going to be AU then how is it going to be original? I don't get that part here.

Do you get what I mean? Or did I got something wrong here? Please excuse me for that and explain me my folly!

9/4/2012 . Edited 9/4/2012 #18
Ventisquear

I'll try to explain it on the example I used before. Let's say that the story about the secret agent Jack and his friends Jill and Bob is called "Jack Bond" and it's for the fandom of James Bond. I don't care if the story "Jack Bond" is set in canon, AU, crossover or whatever. What I want is a story with the same settings and characters as in "Jack Bond", only with Jack suddenly clumsy and dumb.

Whatever else you do with it, is entirely up to you. :) If you make it a proper part of the "Jack Bond" story, if it's set before or after "Jack Bond", or if it is an AU to "Jack Bond", or if it is crossover with, idk, Torchwood, I don't care. That's also entirely up to you. :D

So: take the story you already have, turn one character upside down and show us the chaos it causes. That's all.

9/4/2012 #19
Aspiring Hobby

Oh, okay! thanks a lot for clearing it all out!

:)

Okay I know I am being annoying here but I wanted to ask I have to do this challenge with an already existing story of mine?

If I have to than I think that's not possible because all of stories of mine has the main protagonist different than that of cannon! In none of story My main character Kagome that is from Inuyasha fandom is just entirely different from the story. So?

:)

Edit: I am so idiotic here! I get what you mean! I am so sorry for being annoying here. Will post the story soon!

I just have to alter a character in one of my stories and show the chaos! Right?

:D

Great! I'm so glad everyone is embracing this challenge. It has me all excited.

PS: I forgot to mention that if anyone does my challenge, it will result in a review and most likely a favorite from me as well. :)

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It: Breakfast in bed. I'd like to see that incorporated into the story somehow. I think it's a very basic idea that can be elaborated in many different ways. The story can be all kinds of things: fluffy, gross, spiteful, tragic, etc.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with, if you should accept my challenge.

Edit: There are no time restraints, and the theme can be used in an already existing fic, or a completely new one.

A couple of questions: do you have a cut off date for this? Also, can it be part of a WIP, or does it have to be a one-shot?

9/15/2012 #29

There is no cut off date, and it can be either be a completely new story or embedded into one that you already have. Just be sure to tell me which chapter it is featured in. Thanks for the interest. :)
