Well, I haven't messed with this post lately, but since the announcement of the fall season premier, it seems like a lot of people are coming up with challenge ideas for our fanfic writers, so I figured I'd do my duty and actually update this list.  I apologize for not doing it more recently; from here on out, I'll do my best to actually keep up.

It would also be very helpful if people posting challenges could tag them as such (WARNING: someone, there's both a "challenges/prompts" AND a "prompts/challenges" tag, for some reason), thus making it easier both for myself to add them to this list, and for people who are to lazy to link to this.  ^_^

Also, this post IS in the community's memories, so it's easy to find!

So here it is: the compendium of contests/challenge ideas going on right now (going back a bit):

Contests with Due Dates:
[info]cyandragon put out the (what has the potential to be infamous) Animated Zutara Challenge, which also has a separate claims post, in case you want to sign up (there have been requests for certain movies as well).   Due Date:  May 30th

mdotj has issued the Musical ChallengeDue Date:  June 1st

icedragoncat has done an OVERWHELMING CONTEST OF DOOM AND GOODIES with lots of different categories and prizes and yummy yum yum stuff.  Participate, people!  This one's going on all summer.  Due Date:  Check the post


miss_mephisto did the really cool hour-long fic idea that was technically for springing forward, but I think it's still valid as a writing exercise, so it gets to hang out here.

nuitsansetoiles (hey!  I get it!  cool username!) suggested an All in a Year challenge, though I don't know if anyone's picked up on that one either.

mathkid threw out the You Talk in Your Sleep challenge, which has prompted both humor and angst.

xxoathkeeperxx has thrown out The Space Between as a fic idea as well.

fandomme has suggested a Tea Not Tension prompt

Things That Ended Recently:
I didn't see any entries for this challenge, so I'll go ahead and pimp it here.  rashaka asked for some reverse capture fics specifically incited by Iroh back in January.

I don't know if this is technically "over," but I haven't seen any entries recently.  fuzzy_ninja officially declared the shuffle challenge (which spawned a LOT of responses) on January 22, and it has no official due date.

I never saw any fic for jakia's dream sequence idea, either.

stripes714 did a 13 Sayings Challenge that garnered a few responses as well.

If anyone can think of anything else that goes on this list, just tell me and I'll put it up here!

Thank you for putting those all together in one post. That saves me, and others, a lot of trouble.

No problem--I've been wanting to know myself, and meaning to do this for everyone else for a few days now. ^_^

Ahh, yes, thank you.
So many prompts and challenges and stuff. D:
This clears up so many questions. And makes things easier.

The Soup prompt was never meant to be contest, actually. It was simply an attempt to challenge people with something unusual.
Sep. 21st, 2006 03:46 am (UTC)
darn. I wanted to win. :-b Thanks for answering the question!
Sep. 21st, 2006 03:47 am (UTC)
Hey, feel free to make yourself a crown and schedule a parade. ^_^

The CD Challenge was only meant to be a challenge. I guess if enough people want it to be a contest, I could make it one. I'd have to come up with a prize though.

EVIL! But I didn't say I was going to do it yet. I want at least 10 entries before the challenge becomes a contest. So I have 4 already. That means 6 more of you lovely fanfic-ers need to contribute.

So, HA! I got all of you!

Aww, I remembered about my own challenge two seconds ago and went here to post about it--but now I find this lovely little collection of painstakingly collected challenges!

You're so awesome for digging these up. (And I'm glad you think my photos are pretty. :))

You win at katara_zuko! Thanks for compiling all this. Should keep us all busy for a while.

I really don't want to be nitpicky but... my name is Kirschreich - not KirschreichE. As much as I appreciate someone making an effort in using correct German grammar (since I'm female in this case the 'e' would be totally correct) that's not my name. XD
Sep. 21st, 2006 01:25 pm (UTC)
...wha? There's no "e"? I could've sworn I saw an "e"! Oops! I'm sorry! It's fixed now!

Irrel did a large prompt list with quotations from BTVS. I also did a music prompt earlier today.
Sep. 21st, 2006 01:25 pm (UTC)
I think I got them both. Thanks!

Is this going to be updated periodically, or was this in the past? Someone should make a new post at the end of every week (maybe Friday?) and state all the contests/challenges going on, etc.

That way we don't have to scroll through tons of entries just to find a few prompts ^^;
Oct. 3rd, 2006 02:19 am (UTC)
There's also irrel's AU kiddie contest.
Apr. 3rd, 2007 12:16 am (UTC)
Thank you... i was getting confused
with the contests already...
Apr. 3rd, 2007 04:07 am (UTC)
Thank you ♥ I'd been trying and phailing to find the original shuffle challenge post ^_^
Apr. 3rd, 2007 06:36 am (UTC)
Something tells me that the animated challenge is going to be infamous too. (Especially the conversations about Dimitri in the claims thread. XD)
Apr. 6th, 2007 12:59 am (UTC)
Thaaaaaaank youuuu! <333 I see so many entries that are all "This is for so-and-so's challenge!" and I'm like "....bwah? o_0"
Aug. 3rd, 2008 07:56 pm (UTC)
I've got what I hope is a good idea. It's been stirring around in my brain for a while:
A Zutara Kill Bill fanfiction.
Any takers?

Katara x Prince Zuko Shippers

water & fire

One moon (one moon)
One star (one star)
I love the one we are
One thread (one thread)
One line (one line)
That runs through our lives

After all is said and done
One and one still is one
When we cry, when we laugh
I am half, you are half
