What is it?
The "Sing Me a Love Song, Baby" Amnesty Challenge. Participants will fill a bingo square using a song (or several songs) for inspiration. You can choose whatever song you like, and the inspiration can come in any form. Suggestions: you can name the fill after a song, put lyrics in the story, or just try to recreate the 'vibe' the song gave off. Whatever you're inspired to do! Remember, even though this is pairings bingo, it doesn't have to be a romantic relationship (think friendship, frenemies, family...), so you're not limited to just love songs.Open to?
Everyone! Just join the comm and play.When is it?
October 31st 2013. Turn it in by midnight on Halloween.
November 15th.What do we win?
20 points for Round 2 of Pairing Bingo (coming this December) & a Halloween banner with your name on it.How do we play?
Comment below and tell us if you'd prefer a het, slash, femslash, or mixed card. We'll reply with your 2x2 card. Pick one of the pairings and create a fill inspired by a song (or perhaps several songs if you're making a fan mix). When you post your fill, be sure to tell us which song served as your muse. See minimum fills on this page
for size requirements of the fills.
Now, get to it and have fun!
Hi, all! Just a couple of things here. First, a little reminder. As of right now, it is a little over a week's time before the end of our first amnesty challenge, the instructions and such for which can be found here
. Remember, this is an art or fic challenge ONLY
. And if this challenge wasn't your cup of Craig, then maybe our next one will be, so never fear!
As for those of you still awaiting prizes, they're on the way, promise. I can safely say that one is halfway done. RL has just been very busy for your mods, as this one is expecting a baby in about 4 weeks.
And finally, the character listing has been updated. You can check this out here
. And if you have any questions, comments, or requests about the characters, please comment on that post. Any other questions can of course be directed here. Can't wait to read those stories, guys!
AKA our First Amnesty Challenge!
Took us a bit longer than we would've liked to get this together, but your mods are busy folks both in fandom and RL, LMAO. So, what does that title mean? What's the challenge? Read on.
Your challenge shall begin on this post. Comment here, and then either myself or twisted_slinky
will reply with a 4x4 bingo square. In that square, there shall be only one name per square.
So how do you get a pairing from that? Well, you have two choices:1) You can take TWO or MORE characters within your square and pair them together. However, the story you tell MUST take place in a CROSSOVER fandom. Examples include anything ranging from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to Glee, to Teen Wolf, or to little known fandoms such as certain anime/mangas or short-lived TV shows. So long as it's a fandom, it's game.
2) You take one character from one square and pair them with a CHARACTER FROM A CROSSOVER fandom. See above for fandom examples.
So why is this challenge called "Secondary Characters"? Well, that's because the names that will appear in the request squares will NOT
be Sam, Dean, or Castiel. Your fellow mod and I have decided that these three are the only ones that we can logical count as the show's main characters as they are the only ones who have been listed--at one point or another--as series regulars.
And what do you get for all this hard work? Well, prizes
will be 20 points toward Bingo Round 2, coming later this year.
As for fills, this challenge is for Fic, Art, or Vids ONLY!
See minimum fills on this page
for size requirements. Sorry, mixers, we'll make this up to you in another challenge, promise.Deadline to sign-up/complete this Amnesty Challenge is Aug. 9th, 2013.
Also, your mods have decided that the general amnesty period will continue up until just before the start of Round 2. A more solid date on that to follow, but don't worry, this gives you plenty of posting time.
What else do you need to know about this challenge? Only two things. One, no opt outs--since you have a wider pairing option with this one, and two, you may still continue to post your general amnesty fills from last round throughout any and all challenges we do. Just make sure to tag things appropriately. With this post I'll be adding the tags for this round of amnesty, as well as for this challenge. Now, get to it and have fun!
Hello, all! Thanks for all the great participation this year! So, what's next for all of us? Well...
Amnesty Round is OPEN!!
So, what does that mean for all of you? Well, if there were fills you did that you didn't get to post in time, now's the time to do so! Sadly, this will also include this mod, as time sort of got away from me. We just ask that that you follow the same posting guidelines as before. Oh, and if there are any tags still missing, don't worry. We're still working on that. Also, the amnesty round is dated to end on Aug. 15th
but if there is enough interest, we might let it go on longer. Just comment here to let us know what you want. Also, we might do some amnesty games for possible extra points... again, if there is interest, please comment and say so!
Also, for those still missing prizes, your humble modelves are working hard on them! So, keep your eyes peeled for more prize posts!
We've had a great round, and it's all thanks to YOU! Give yourselves a hand!
End of Round 1!
Well, everyone, we've reached the end of Round 1. The Amnesty period begins on June 15th, so if any of you are trying to wrap up stories to fit your bingo fills, you still have time to share them with group. We might even play a few Amnesty games for Round 2 points, if there's any interest. Speaking of Round 2, feel free to use this post to voice any suggestions you have for the comm.
You're a creative group, that's for sure! We ended our first game with several wonderful stories and works of art. I'd highly suggest you all check out what your fellow players have created.WINNERS!This round, we had 10 players who acted on behalf of Cupid and completed a Bingo (or two). Thank you all for playing! You all did a fantastic job! I hope we have even more players in the second round.
So are any of you interested in who earned the most points this round?
