New Fic Challenge - Crime Takes A Holiday

About New Fic Challenge

Previous Entry New Fic Challenge Aug. 10th, 2004 @ 10:16 am Next Entry


Announcing Crime Takes a Holiday: The All-Holiday Crimefic Challenge



The challenge is open to all characters and pairings in all crime fandoms. The only rule is that fics must revolve around a holiday -- any holiday -- in any culture/country/nationality. So send Jack home with Sam to meet her mother over Thanksgiving. Send Jimmy to a fire started by a Fourth of July firecracker. Let Warrick take Catherine's daughter trick-or-treating. Anything goes, as long as there's a holiday involved.

Challenge guidelines are as follows:

  • The challenge is open to het, slash, and gen, any pairing (or no pairing at all).
  • Any and all characters from crime fandoms are fair game. Below is a list of eligible fandoms, but if you want to write in a crime fandom that's not listed, e-mail me at carolinecrane @ yahoo dot com and I'll add your fandom to the list.
  • Submissions can be in the form of fic, fan art, or songvids. If you need a place to host your fanart or vid, just e-mail me and let me know.
  • The challenge archive opens on October 31st. You can post your fic any time between then and December 31st.
  • Participation is easy -- no sign-ups required. If you decide to participate, just post your fic on the challenge archive any time after October 31st.

So send Jack home with Sam to meet her mother over Thanksgiving.

If you mean Stargate, Sam's mother is dead.

I was referring to Sam and Jack from Without A Trace, actually. Stargate's not on the list.

Very cool idea for a challenge! I pimped it at the Monk Message board so I hope there will be some Monk stories *g*

I pimped this challenge to my multifandom flist.

Suggested additions to the fandom list:

21 Jump Street
Angel (because it's a PI firm with victims as clients)
The Shield
Oz

And how about Man from UNCLE if you are going to have The Pros and MI-5 on the list?

I thought about including Angel, but in the end I decided not to. I'd just like to steer clear of the Jossverse on this one. But I'll add the others; thanks.

okay....colour me un-intelligent....but how are we supposed to post stuff to the archive? (I ended up here through a random series of links, and this looks like fun.)

I hadn't thought about it, but since the challenge has been over for almost eight months it doesn't really matter.

Aw, crud. I'm so bored out of my mind I've been looking for decent challenges all over... Might you have any to reccommend? :)

I'm afraid I'm so far out of fandom these days that I haven't got a clue. Sorry.
