Crossover Challenge Wrap-Up

Somehow February totally snuck by on me without my realizing it.

I know there's been a lot of awesome crossover stuff, but I haven't had the chance to check it all out yet.

To make the reward book-keeping easier, if you could link to all your stuff in his post that would be awesome.

As reminder, the rewards scheme is as follows:

Level 1: 500-999 words, 5-9 icons, or 1 wallpaper
Level 2: 1000+ words, 10+ icons, or 2 wallpapers
Bonus: Write a crossover chosen by someone else.

For Level 1, you get 100ish words or an icon.
For Level 2 or Level with the bonus, you get 200ish words or 2 icons.
For Level 2 with the bonus, you get 300ish words or 3 icons.

If you want, you can mix and match, i.e. 100 words and 1 icon instead of 200 words.

You get a reward for each unique work you created. If you earned two (or more) rewards, you can have them as separate fics or one larger fic, it's up to you.

Fandoms available for a fic reward:
CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Eureka, Harry Potter, Hawaii Five-0, Law & Order, Power Rangers, Rent, Sherlock, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, White Collar, Torchwood.

It's possible there's a few things I forgot, so if there's something not on the list you can ask, but no guarantees.

For icon rewards, as long as you can point be in the direction of screencaps, I can make pretty much anything.

Hope you all had fun with this challenge.

Danger Days: Party Red

End of February Works!

Once again, I'm going to go with a masterlist of my works for the end of February. Of all of them, I think I'm proudest of Bored which was a plot bunny that sunk its fangs in last night and would not let go until I wrote it. :D It also squeaks in under the wire as my last work of February. I'm also really proud of the two larger graphics I did for the comment graphic challenge.

March: Graphic Connections Challege 2.0

It was requested to start a new post for this challenge/game for the new month. I'm thinking I may just do this each month! Same 'rules' apply for this one as the February one. For new folks basically, A graphic is posted and then someone claims that graphic (in a reply to it's thread), then creates a new graphic that is connected in some way to the graphic you claimed. (be it hair color, theme, fandom, character, actor/actress etc... stock OR fandom) You post your newly created graphic in a new thread (to keep us from getting stringy and hard to read)

One person per graphic claim. If 2 people claim something at the same time, the first posted claim gets it, the next posted claim can claim the next graphic. Don't claim your own graphic.:)

If you played last month, you know how to do it. :)

If your graphic is larger than 300 pixels wide or tall, please us this code (so we have uniformly sized thumbnails)


I'm not going to worry about rewards, because it'll be too hard to really figure out, but also, the fun and reward is in watching your number counts go up as you play! :)

Have fun!!
