Would you guys be interested in a genre-twisting challenge or ficathon of some sort? Any suggestions, if you are?

My three personally favourite types of challenges:

- Porn-Battle: First a post goes up collecting prompts, then the prompts are posted on a second post, from which anybody can pick whatever prompt they like. And then you try to see who writes most. Of course if we did this the porn would be entirely optional... (As far as I know, originates with Oxoniensis on LJ.)

- Drabble Tag: In which you start with a short list of initial prompts collected in a previous post, and then everybody who has written a response to one prompt gets to add two prompts to the list. Can Go On Forever. (Picked it off Femslash100 on LJ, but not sure where it originates.)
- Kink/Cliche/whatever adaptable set list of prompts OR blind scenarios. So, for example, you get a list of prompts and can choose your characters, or you choose your characters first and are then given scenarios to write "X meets Y on an intergalactic space station to discuss the alien invasion situation but don't know that Z has already betrayed them to the alien queen".

Big Damn Heroes

The, the third one! I like the blind scenario.

Sorry for not posting here or anything, have been having...many examinations.

So I've heard! :)

I'm thinking maybe a blind scenario bingo card or ten scenarios to choose as many as you like from. Blind scenarios can end up with some perfectly impossible - even in AU - scenarios or ones the most willing mind won't be able to work through, though the working through is SO much fun. The blind scenario could work wonderfully for genretwisting, though, if you adapt it... Hmm!
