April Challenge: Crossovers!

Welcome to the first April challenge: Crossovers! (There is also another challenge, WIP Push, that will be run simultaneously.)

We're getting started a little late, but don't worry, you will still have a few days more than a month to complete the challenge.

The challenge itself is simple. Create a crossover — either fic or in graphics — between two fandoms. You can do a real crossover, where characters of both fandoms are present in your work (Disney princesses and Harry Potter team up to save the world!) or you can do more of a fusion where one fandom is transported into another (Disney princesses at Hogwarts!).

When you have finished your masterpiece(s), post it to the comm or post a link of it to me here.

If you write at least 500 words, or make at least 5 icons/graphics, you will receive your own reward banner at the end of the month. If you write at least 1,000 words, or make at least 10 icons/graphics, you'll get a personalized reward banner at the end of the month.

You have until May 7 to complete the challenge because I'm traveling for work and won't be home until that night! (As long as it is May 7 anywhere in the world, you will still be on time.)

Throughout the month, I will be making some encouragement posts, where we can brainstorm, cheer each other on and even discuss some our most favorite crossovers ever.

For now, pull up a chair and let us know if you're in — and if you have an idea already, we'd love to hear it. Or if you don't and need help, let us know too!

Happy Crossovering, everyone!

April Challenge: WIP Push!

Welcome to our April Challenge: WIP Push! (We will also be doing a second challenge, Crossovers, at the same time.)

Do you have a fic that is just languishing in your writing folder that you can't ever seem to find time to work on? Do you have a pile of screencaps just waiting to be made into graphics but yet day after day you just pass them by?

Well, this challenge is for you! This month, we're going to work on GETTING OUR SHIT DONE (or at least making really good progress).

Throughout the month, I'll be posting a bunch of encouragement posts, brainstorming posts and even some 60 in 60s that I am stealing from kaige68.

And if, by the end of May 7, you've have successfully finished one of your WIPs (fics or graphics) and posted it to the comm or linked it to me here, you will get an awesome completion banner for your efforts! If you don't quite finish but do make super good progress, you will also get an awesome banner for your efforts!

For now, start digging through those folders and thinking about what you'd like to work on — and if you already know, then why not share? We'd love to hear!
