July Pool Party



Pool Party!


In the month of July, we want you to play in someone else's pool.

Put on your bathing suit, grab your towel, and grab your cooler. We're heading over to the neighbor's pool! You will be playing in fandoms you have never played in before.

1,000 word or 10 graphics in any fandom you haven't written or graphic's in before.

The pool you play in is up to you, just choose one you haven't stuck a toe in yet.


Cannonball!

In order to help anyone who might have issues finding a fandom to play in, I have compiled this list. Writing in a new fandom can be scary, but it can be loads of fun. If you are not fully comfortable writing in a completely new fandom, try doing a crossover. When done right, the outcome is spectacular. You do not have to do a pairing, Gen works wonderfully too. Maybe a case fic, a monster/alien of the week fic, a guest star that was never on the show/movie; but dag nabbit, you felt that they would have been a perfect fit!

The cosmos and your imagination is the limit.

Resources:

Literature:

100 Best Novels List

Free Old Books Online (Including some Audio Books)

Movies Lists:

Children's Movies

Action Adventure Movies

Horror Movies

Comedy Movies

Romance Movies

You can find several older films/television series to watch on Youtube (free of charge)

Write about your favorite Sports Team (Any Sport, including Olympic)

Write about your favorite band. Perhaps, how you think they spend their free time.

Like an actor, but not the movie/Television show, write a RPF

(Rule of thumb for writing RPFs, only do so if the actor is over the age of 18 in Real Life, though you may deage any actor. Imagine a baby Jensen Ackles trying peas for the first time. Imagine reading/writing about your favorite actor/actress taking their first steps, staring in a school play.)

Maybe write your favorite Porn Star chilling during their free time.

If you still need help. Let the mods (or myself) know. Prompts, pushes, cheers are given freely.

I am looking forward to see what everyone come up with.

Yay, I'd been looking forward to this one, now to decide which of two possible fandoms to submit something in - oh what the hell, I may even do both.

Go wild and play in as many pools as you want. :) I admit that I love this month. Simply because I get to see someone (other than me) play in a new fandom. :)

OOh, I do love a good pool party. Hmm... what to do, what to do? I have a few choices I guess, so no decisions yet, but I fully intend to give it a go!

I really love this idea! I feel like the list of fandoms I like is double the list of fandoms I actually write in. This is a good way to stretch myself!

It's always good to stretch yourself. Keeps you limber. :)

if only I woulda held out writing for Teen Wolf I could have participated in this. I have to find another fandom to write for

Aw, I have faith that you can still find a new fandom to play in.

YAY! I had so much fun with this last year. Now, to figure out what I want to write in. I watch so many freaking shows you'd think it'd be easy. :D
fairyniamh
Jun. 29th, 2015 09:36 pm (UTC)
I think its harder because there are so many shows, but I love the diversity. :)

Ha I totally forgot about the annual Pool Party's :D

Now to find a new fandom (or unearth an old one - I've been having Robin Hood BBC vibes lately). Time to dip the toes :D

\o/ I am looking forward to seeing where you dip your toes. :)

For graphics - I'm thinking the new show on syfy Dark Matter

Writing - hmm - possibly a crossover of something - or maybe I'll make a fanmix for a character/pairing/show I've never tried before -

That sounds awesome. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Let's try this again since I replied in the wrong place before, twice *bangs head on desk*

I love the Pool Party!

This is the push I need to make some graphics for some movies that I've watched and have wanted to make graphics for. I'll admit it I watched because of an actor in all of them :-)

Question...can the 10 graphics be a mix of icons, wallpaper and headers?

Hmm, so many fandoms I love but haven't been brave enough to write for whatever reason. Now the tough part is choosing one! :) Off to make my list of fandoms so I can maybe just put them in a hat and grab one! Probably the easiest way to choose!
fairyniamh
Jun. 30th, 2015 12:53 pm (UTC)
I've done that more than once. :) I look forward to seeing which fandom you pluck from your hat. :)

SHIT SHIT!

I don't know whether to Write for Arrow (Its 2015 it's time), Agent Carter or Sense8 -screaming-
fairyniamh

Assign them a number, got to http://www.random.org and use that, or put them on a slip of paper and pull from a hat, or do all three. For your sanity, I would suggest one of the first two. :)

This is TOTALLY not a problem hahahaha I do fic exchanges so I keep ending up writing for new fandoms.

In fact, I just got an assignment earlier today for a Sky High + MCU/AoS fusion, and I've definitely never done Sky High before.

Haha, I've been doing soooo many new fandoms recently!! (It's one of my goals this year so)

Question: does it have to be just one fandom that we count for this? Cos I plan on writing a bunch, and most of the challenges I'm writing them for are drabble challenges...

Whatever way, this is great and I'm excited!! <3
fairyniamh

You may certainly use Drabbles and more than one fandom... as long as it is new to you. :)

Glad we could make you excited. :)

Okay, so I had a few questions about this one, but I found some answers in the comments here. I do still have one lingering query, though: If I do a crossover, does both fandoms involved have to be new? Failing that, what about a crossover that is mainly centered in one fandom but has, like, a cameo of a character from a fandom that isn't new for me?

I'm a fandom whore myself, so it can be tricky sometimes finding new ones to write in. ;-) I've got a couple of ideas, but one's a crossover and I kinda think the other two will prove to be short pieces.

Hey there, and welcome!!!!

I'm going to jump in here and answer for Fairy. I'd say that a crossover with one familiar fandom would not quite fit the bill here. A cameo would be fine. Of course, me being me, I'm not going to say no to any words, but the spirit of it should be a brand new fandom.

I'm so thrilled you're on board with us!!!
