To sign up and play the game, leave a comment below requesting a bingo card. If you're going to post under a different name, leave that name, as well as the type of card you'd like (Het, Slash, Femslash, or Mixed. If you choose "Mixed" specify which ones you want mixed.) and any "Opt-Out" requests.Example Post
Mixed (Slash & Femslash)Opt-Outs
: No angels, Bobby/John, season 9 characters, or JoAbout "Opt-Out" requests -
You can choose up to 5 Opt-Outs (more upon request, but try to limit yourself so that we don't get a migraine making these cards).
To see which characters we'll be creating pairings with, check out our Character Listing
. As always, the more often a character appeared in the show, the more likely they'll appear on the card, so don't be afraid that we're going to stick you with a whole line of minor pairings (unless you hint that you'd be into that type of thing). You can "Opt-Out" of
a.) certain types of pairings such as specific couples ("no John/Mary or Dean/Crossover Character please")
b.) specific season characters (for players who don't like certain seasons/haven't watched the newest seasons)
c.) specific characters ("no pairings with Lucifer")
d.) specific groups of characters (no angels, demons, minor characters etc.)
e.) specific types of relationships (such as incest, cross-species).Helpful Hints -
- Make sure you come back to this page to copy your LJ code from the comment instead of copy/pasting from your email.
- If you're keeping up with your fills on your LJ page and want to strike a square out, look at your HTML coding, find the square name, and make it look like this: <*s><*a href="LINK TO YOUR STORY"*>SQUARE NAME<*/a><*s> (take out the asterisks)
- Don't forget to label each fill you post with "spnpairingbingo" so that we know the fill really was intended for us and to let your reader know about us.
- You can sign up to play the game any time throughout this round, and you can start playing as soon as the round begins.
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!
