I never thought I'd take place in a crack community (not my bag, baby) but the idea of this fic contest is too hilarious. As opposed to coming up with one idea, I had TOO many. ^_^

So here's my entry...

Bouncing across the Cosmic Era by harolacusfangirl8906.
"lacus dumped athrun for kira and now hes come back!!!!! what is a pop star to do but confide in her favorite robot who has been seeing a 10th grade girl from earth behind her back!!!! athrunxlacusxkira/haro/OC rr no flamez NO HAROXFLLAY PPLS THX rated pg-13 for human/haro yaoi'"

Written after Destiny. If the description doesn't imply the canonity, I don't know what will. XD

Hope this is nuts enough... ^_^

The Week One Writing Challenge is:

Fic Summaries.

You have 75 words (yes, there is a limit) to come up with the summary for a fic, plus however many words you need for your title. Include a "screenname" and "rating" if you'd like. For guidelines, please refer to the community rules on coming up with stuff that would reasonably be found in the Cosmic Era. If you'd like to, and particularly if you're using one of the three loopholes, include a short explanation of the general who/what/where/why this fic is popping up. For example:

Lonely Hearts Cross In The Lonely And Slightly Depressing Solitude Of Outer Space Which Is Very Big (NC-17) by lacusgrrrrrrrrrl71.
'lacus-sama may be engaged to that nasty athrun zala, but that doesn't mean she has 2 like it! after being rescued from junius-7's wreckage, lacus-sama finds everyone's favorite zaft commander... rau le creuset/lacus clyne r/r no flames plz.'

Definitely not a canon pairing, but, knowing fandoms probably around in a Cosmic Era fandom somewhere! Written where it looks like: after Lacus's rescue, but before Operation Spit-Break.

... the actual things you're summarizing can be more or less awful. You can submit as many entries as you'd like, but they'll be considered separately for voting.

Please post responses to the challenge in this post. Challenge ends Friday the 14th at 7:30 EST.

The Week One Graphics Challenge is:


Basically? It's a free-for-all. Make an icon for a SEED/Destiny character (or characters) like they're a real person -- make them as hilariously bad or amazingly beautiful as you'd like. Fit LJ's size and space limitations. Use pictures that could reasonably have been released to the public and, hence, used for icons.

If you think there could be any doubt about how you, the imaginary RPF fangirl or boy, would know about the pairing (or, hell, character) you selected, feel free to include a short explanation. In fact, you can just include an explanation -- as yourself or as some cracked out CE fanchild -- along with your icon!

Please post with the icon (in an img src tag) and with its URL. Entries will not be screened.

So: comment below with your submission. You can submit as many entries as you'd like, though it may hurt you in voting.

Challenge ends Friday the 14th at 7:30 EST.

My dearest, darling people who followed the link to this whacked out idea for a community, thank you.

But I might as well make this first post sorta business-like, so here goes.


... really, really need one. Please comment with contact info!


If we're going to run challenges with voting, banners are a great way to congratulate the winners. Unfortunately, I'm pretty much a Photoshop n00b, and would love it if anyone would like to sign up for banners -- they don't have to be elaborate, they just have to incorporate who won what, when, and where. Again, please comment with contact info!

Suggestions for the community?

While things are still in the works, pipe up so I can whip this thing into shape!

Suggestions for challenges?

So far, I have things like fic summaries, fic, "role-play" (a potential multi-user challenge), icons, fanart, colorbars... going to run out pretty fast at this rate!
