Attention members of ohsam
I am very happy to announce that we are, after several months' absence, holding a two-week celebration of Sam's birthday, starting May 2nd!
The challenge? Produce fanworks of any kind featuring Sam-centered hurt/comfort on the theme of birthdays. It can be about Sam's birthday, or anyone else's birthday, so long as you make Sam suffer for it. ;)
There is NO LIMIT to what you can produce. No minimum or maximum wordcount for fic, and we encourage all our artists/podficcers/vidders/other talented fandom folk to go crazy. You can post at any time starting on May 2nd all the way through May 16th, using the &birthday challenge tag. If you post after that, you can tag as usual, or else use the &amnesty tag as well.
I am opening this post up for prompts as well. Please specify if your prompt is for fic, art, vid or something else. That being said, if for instance an artist is inspired by a fic prompt, you should feel free to go ahead and use it.:::ETA:::
The prompts are for inspiration only! If you have an idea that isn't prompted here, you are encouraged
to produce a fanwork for it!
Do help us to spread the word, too! The lovely and talented quickreaver
has made us a lovely banner to help with this. :):::Further ETA:::
To those who feel disappointed by the "limited" scope of this challenge, there will be general comment-fic memes happening in the future, as well as other challenges. However, I do hope that, instead of feeling as if all your hopes and dreams have been crushed, you view this instead as an opportunity to spread your creative wings and be as liberal as you'd like in interpreting the theme of a "birthday."
And for those of you who wish to offer your services as beta, please comment HERE
. Remember to provide a way to contact you that you check regularly! Or track your comment thread, or check back here periodically.:::3rd ETA:::
Due to LJ being intermittently down for the better part of a week, the challenge is being extended so that it ends Sunday, May 19th instead. Happy writing!
