*UPDATE 06-25-2010*
The deadline for submissions for the "Alternate Shippers Challenge" has been extended! Submissions will be accepted until THURSDAY 07/01 11:59 PM Pacific Time!

Due to Extended Submission Deadline, Voting will be from July 3rd through July 18th.

What type of challenge are we asking, you wonder? We want you to step out of SM’s shoes for just a moment here, and bring your favorite character with you. Now let’s mix things up. We want something different, non-canon, straight off of the “What the fuck? No you didn’t.” pairing list!

Challenge yourself to do something different. Do you think Carlisle and Aro would make a good couple? Or is Aro too controlling, maybe Aro taking control isn’t such a bad thing. :wink, wink: Is Charlie enough man to satisfy Rosalie? Maybe she can bring the animal out in him.

CANON Pairings:

Bella/Edward

Bella/Jacob

Bella/Mike

Bella/Tyler

Bella/Yorkie

Alice/Jasper

Maria/Jasper

Rosalie/Emmett

Rosalie/Royce

Esme/Carlisle

Renee/Charlie

Renee/Phil

Sue Clearwater/Charlie

Charlotte/Peter

Tanya/Edward

Kate/Garrett

Renesemee/Jacob

Jessica/Mike

Angela/Ben

Victoria/James

As long as your couple doesn’t fall into that list of canon pairings…. Then you’re good to go! If you have any questions regarding your pairing, send us a PM or shoot us an e-mail and we’ll help clarify anything we can.

Now, for the content. We have few restrictions here. The obvious… no pedophiles, rape, incest, all that. Got it? You can basically use your common sense here.

A Lemon is not required, but something we are hoping to see. Which means… you MUST be 18 years of age or older to enter if smut, a lemon, some citrus -whatever you want to call it- is in your story. If we find out you are not 18 years old, your story will be removed from the challenge without question. A few fluff bunnies running around wouldn’t be horrible either. Think you can give us that warm fuzzy feeling?

If you’re not sure on anything, ASK!! We are here to help you, clarify, and make sure you understand everything. So please, don’t hesitate to ask questions. You can e-mail us at Alternateshippers@gmail.com

Entries may use characters from an existing fic, but the entry must be new material, written for the contest, and must be able to stand on its own as a one-shot.

One-shots may not be expanded until the contest is over. (If you do choose to expand afterward, let us know!)


Rules and Guidelines:

Submissions will be accepted until June 27th Extended! Submissions will be accepted until THURSDAY 07/01 11:59 PM Pacific Time!

Collaborations are acceptable.

Limit of two entries per author or collaboration group.

Entries will be accepted from fanfiction.net (FFn), LiveJournal (LJ), and Twilighted (T’ed). Please note that we will not be able to add entries submitted via sites other than FFn to the FFn Community (C2). The Open Voting poll will include links to all entries – FFn or otherwise.

Submitting an Entry:

Please PM the profile (FFn) or email (Alternateshippers@gmail.com) the entry link to make your official submission.

All entries must use a “The Alternate-Shipper Challenge” header, which is below.

Entries will be validated for quality grammar/punctuation and rules compliance when the entry is submitted. After an entry has been validated, if submitted via FFn, it will be added to the "The Alternate-Shipper Challenge" C2. Authors will be PMed or emailed when their entries have been validated. If an entry is disqualified, the author will be PMed and may modify and resubmit the entry by the submission deadline, if she so chooses.

We encourage any author with need for a beta to check out Project Team Beta.


Voting:

After the submission deadline has passed, there will be an open/public voting round featuring all validated entries.

In addition to Open Voting, there will be a Judges’ Selection round. The judges will assess all submitted entries, and will do so anonymously – all header information (author, title, etc) will be removed from an entry before the judges read it.

All winners will be announced on July 25th.


Prizes:

This is a challenge, and while this may not necessarily change the nature of it, we consider everyone a winner.

There will be a public poll of all validated entries.

First Place A banner for their entry and feature spotlight on Fanficers Anonymous Blog

Third Place A banner for their entry and a shout out on FanFicers Anonymous Blog.
