Challenge Week #1 and Team Signups  
Firstly - the Fic-a-Thon assignments will be going out later this evening. Still trying to get everyone matched up satisfactorily.

Now - for something new.

First - The Rules of this new Weekly Challenge.

Each Monday a new challenge will be posted - a prompt or short sentence to inspire, we hope!

Take the challenge and write a fic of at least 1000 words. Crossover with BtVS/AtS, of course, since that's what this community is all about. You can answer the challenge as many times as you want within the week it is posted.

This is a team competition challenge! You'll be writing to earn your team "points" - whichever team has the most points by the time the new challenge is posted wins for that week. The team you pick determines what SPN characters your story can focus on.

There are three teams to choose from:

Team Winchester (Dean, Sam, John, Mary, & Metallicar)
Team Roadhouse (Jo, Ellen, Ash, Bill, any and all hunters and misc "good guys" like Missouri)
Team Hellfire (Meg, the Demon, and Monster-of-the-Week... the "bad guys")

Evil!Sam can be used by both Team Winchester *and* Team Hellfire, since he was sort of both.
Posessed!John can be used by both Team Winchester *and* Team Hellfire.
Lenore is relegated to Team Hellfire, since she was technically a Monster of the Week.

Choose your team wisely! That's the team you will write for Every. Single. Week. Don't everyone go jumping on Team Winchester at once. What's the challenge if you're all on the same team?

Tag your fic with the following tag in addition to the required author tag and content tag(s):

team:winchester *or* team:roadhouse *or* team:hellfire

Sign up for your team by commenting to this post. We'll keep track of the teams here.

Team Winchester

Team Roadhouse

Team Hellfire

Okay, now for the challenge.

Challenge #1: weather (wind, rain, hail, snow, etc.)

I'm gonna sign up for Team Roadhouse... hopefully it'll stave off the monster SPN/ER series currently running around my brain.

Team Hellfire.

I'm a little twisted like that.

Oh hell, what is a writing challenge if it isn't challenging.

Please sign me up for Team Hellfire and I'll see what I can come up with.

Great idea with the teams and challenges Jinni!

Oh hell, sign me up for Team Winchester. Two reasons: it'll even things up (lol) and I'm not entirely sure I could come up with a weekly story about the bad guys or the Roadhouse gang. (Well, okay, maybe the Roadhouse gang, but I'll still stick with the Winchesters. I'm on a pre-series kick. *shrugs*)

I've been feeling evil vibes of late... Let's go Team Hellfire!

Is it too late to sign up because I kind of want to be on Team Hellfire.

Two quick questions though...you have until the next challenge is up to finish right? And you don't have to use the same characters for the whole time do you as long as it fits your team, right?
Jentthjinni on March 5th, 2007 07:35 pm (UTC)
You have until the next challenge is up to post as many 1000+ word fics as you like that fit the theme of the current challenge.

And, yes, you do not have to use the same character every time. Just any character from your "team".

I'll add you to Team Hellfire. *grin*

Sign me up for Team Roadhouse, please. :D
Kayla Shay: SPN - Yes?kaylashay on March 6th, 2007 12:39 am (UTC)

Does Lenore count under the Team Hellfire characters? I mean, she wasn't technically evil, but...
Jentthjinni on March 6th, 2007 02:09 am (UTC)
Since she was a Monster of the Week (sort of), yes, she's Team Hellfire.
Nicole: Sam - weapon of mass destructionblue_icy_rose on March 6th, 2007 01:53 am (UTC)
Quick question! Can evil Sam be used by both Team Winchester and Team Hellfire since he could technically fit under both categories?

And the other thing was that my username is wrong up there on the list. ^_^ The first two words got switched.
Jentthjinni on March 6th, 2007 02:10 am (UTC)
Yes, Evil!Sam can be used by both Team Winchester and Team Hellfire.

We created a LJ for team_hellfire. Would you mind adding the link in for our team? :) We are so very excited about this team challenge idea. Dorks, we all are.

Jentthjinni on March 7th, 2007 04:48 pm (UTC)
Y'all make me laugh. Now I'll have to make a group just for Team Roadhouse, of course. LoL.

The link is up.
