Monthly Challenge: September Twist





Feel like you've exhausted all your plot bunnies with your favorite characters/fandoms/worlds? Have a story that's been sitting around for ages but you just can't figure out where to go next? Or perhaps you want to try something just a little different - then this month's challenge is for you.

The rules are pretty simple - take your favorite fandom/characters/pairings/original work and give them a TWIST.

Examples of some twists (but feel free to come up with your own):

* put them in an alternate universe
* cross it over with another fandom/original work
* bring a minor character front and center - make them the protagonist
* change POV (write the story from the antagonist/villain point of view for example)
* recast the characters (gender swap, change their age - turn elves into werewolves)


Rewards:
1K words (total - can be smaller fics) - customized participation banner/gif or 5 custom icons
500 words - participation banner or 2 custom icons
250 words - participation icon
Or I can add words to a WIP.

Post your work(s) to the comm and/or link in the "I've twisted" comment thread. I'm also adding a "twist brainstorm" comment thread in case you want to bat around your ideas.

haldoor or kaige68 - can we get a tag for this challenge please?

Re: I've Twisted
Okay, so I twisted two of my original fandoms together and gave everyone new jobs. I should have given everyone new partners, too, but someone *cough* might have had my head for that.

Re: I've Twisted
This was awesome! And you had plenty of "twists" AU plus crossover :D

Well done!

What would you like for your reward?

Re: I've Twisted
Thank you! I had a lot of fun with this, so I'm glad it translated well.

A banner works. And if you are looking for something specific, either Paul Rudd (who is my idea of Travis) or Henry Cavill (who is how I picture Andy although not quite so buff). :D

Tag is perfect. I can't claim credit for the graphic - I snagged it from google LOL. I was kinda wracking the ole noggin' trying to come up with a graphic -it was either that or a picture of the twisty Lombard street in San Francisco.

I'm excited for this challenge, especially since one of my prompts from this past weekend challenge will spur at least 1k words (if not more)!

Re: Ive twisted!
I see mention of five custom icons... Is that greedy of me to ask for that? Because if not, I am happy with words on a WIP!

Re: Ive twisted!
5 custom icons it is - do you have a preference for subject or shall I just surprise you with icons from your interests?

Re: Ive twisted!
I'm not trying to be awkward/demanding, I swear, but I can't remember the last time I updated my interests! So if it's ok, some suggestions?

Figure skating - anything with Kaitlyn Weaver &a Andrew Poje (Canadian ice dancers)
The Flash - Joe West/Caitlin Snow is my crackship but anything Joe related would be lovely. (There is never enough Joe, this is what I get for being nearer the parental age than the target demographic!)
The Flying Doctors - obscure late 80s/early 90s Australian drama. Tom and a Chris are my OTP, and I know if you Google "Tom and Chris Flying Doctors", images do come up.

If you can't make anything out of those please let me know and I'll further pull at my thinking cap!
