Hello everyone!
Sorry your mods have been MIA this past month. You know school - it thinks that it is the most important thing. Pshaw. What could be more important than piratefic? ;)

Anyway, here is a short challenge for you.

Hey everyone. Hope that you had a good weekend. This next challenge is going to be a full week, Sunday evening to Sunday evening. Hopefully we'll get a few more people involved. The points are as follows right now:

summerstwilight is leading the pack with 27 points.
heatherlayne_n has 14 points.

Remember, you can post as many stories as you want for each prompt, so don't think you can't catch up to these two. Again, the prize is for the first person to reach 100 points and it's a custom-made PotC-themed wallpaper. But, in all honesty, the points don't really matter. I'm just trying to boost participation. That's all. So, please write, even if you don't give a shit about points.

Author: Summerstwilight
Pairing/Characters: Jack, Gibbs, various and sundry sailors
Word Count: somewhere around 800, I should think.
Rating: G
Genre: General/humor

Disclaimer: Not my characters, no infringement meant.
Spoilers: Really just for PotC 1. This is an odd backstory story.
Warnings: None
Notes: None.
Special Thanks: I guess to my friends Joey and Donnie, who told a story of oranges and retrieval that was so outlandish as to inspire this one. Also to anyone who read this ^_^

We're not talking about ordinary oranges here...Collapse )

Hi, everyone. Until we get the prize list squared away, here's what I would like to do with the challenges I post and prizes:

1.) If you participate in the challenge and write a story, you get 10 points. You may submit as many stories as you would like as long as they are in accordance with the requirements and are in before the deadline. At the end of the challenge, I will make a post of where people stand, points-wise.

2.) I will offer bonus points TBD in each challenge for various things within the story, e.g., include: a sandbar, a doll, and a handshake; or for 50-cent words.

3.) First person to reach 100 points will receive a custom PotC wallpaper made by yours truly, featuring anyone you like (and I'm not above making naughty manips, either ;)).

4.) Everyone who submits will get a participation banner.

5.) Other than that, all rules apply.

Now, without further ado (adieu?), here is (a weekend speed challenge, as requested):

Hi everyone! I'm tenacitydrader and I've recently been asked by elvensorceress to help out with this comm. I am excited about it and am now going through the process of archiving all the old challenges to see what has been done and posting an index in the user info. Before I post the next challenge, I would like to know what you guys think about this community and the direction you'd like to see it go in. There are 104 members, 87 of which watch the community, so I'm really hoping for some feedback.

Back when it first started, people posted a lot of great work, and seemed very fired up about the community and the challenges. But as I go through the archives, I see that people have started to taper off. I understand that a lot of you are in school and life gets in the way, but my goal as your new co-mod is to try and re-vitalize the community and get people involved once again. So, I want to hear from you. For example:

Did anyone (besides me)/is anyone doing challenge 12?
What do you want to see on this comm in general?
Are long challenges better or short ones?
Is there anyone out there?

#12 Haunted Past

Posted by tenacitydrader on 1/30/07 at 06:22 pm
Title: Haunted Past
Author: tenacitydrader
Characters: Pretty much everyone
Pairings: Tia Dalma/Davy Jones, Tia Dalma/Barbossa, Tia Dalma/Beckett
Word count: 37,529
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Speculation for III
Summary: The best summary is in the requirements for the challenge. This fic has a lot of backstory on Tia Dalma, Barbossa, Davy Jones, and Beckett that is used as a context for what happens after DMC.
Disclaimer: All characters and settings herein are property of Disney and Bruckheimer productions. I do not profit from this in the form of monetary or other compensation.
Spoilers: Because this is set after Dead Man’s Chest, there are massive DMC SPOILERS!!!
Warnings: This fic wraps up the trilogy, so there is character death herein (also in accordance with requirement group “B”).
Notes: I did all of requirement group “A” and most of “B.” I stuck to canon fairly well, except I did take some creative license by making this other fic I wrote a while ago part of canon backstory. You don’t have to go and read it, but you should know what it’s about. In a nutshell: between movies, Norrington, near death, washes up on Tia Dalma’s beach and she saves his life, lets him crash at her place, plus through supernatural means, she shows him what marriage to Elizabeth would have been like (not so good).
Special thanks: I’d like to thank my indefatiguable beta, linaerys

Title: Her Game
Author: heatherlayne_n
Pairing/Characters: Jack/Elizabeth...?
Word Count: approx. 1,440
Rating: mild PG-13
Genre: Gen, angst-ish
Summary: Challenge #20 = Jack needs rescuing
Disclaimer: Not mine, not for profit.
Spoilers: For DMC, barely. I don't know when this would take place. Perhaps after AWE, though since I haven't seen anything about that movie, there are no spoilers for it here.
Warnings: Messy eating
Notes: I started this before work today, and finished it later at night. Sorry it wasn't in in time for the actual deadline of Challenge 20.

Title: Return to Me
By: St. Minority
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Barbossa, Jack, Elizabeth, Will, Gibbs, Tia Dalma
Word Count: Around 1,714
Warnings: little bit of gore I guess, and a m/m -kiss kind of
Disclaimer: I don't own POTC - all belongs to Elliott, Rossio, Bruckheimer, Disney...I make no profit.
Summary: Dead men tell no tales, but they can be restored.
Spoilers: Not really, unless you don't want to read about the way I see World's End.
A/N: I worked on this all day, and I'm glad I was able to get it done. :D This is my sort of interpretation of what World's End would be like and was inspired in part by the dead army from Lord of the Rings and a lyric about "phantom ships lost at sea" from a BBMak song (woo! Anyone remember them?).

Challenge #19

Posted by st_minority on 1/14/07 at 09:40 pm
Title: Bittersweet Freedom
By: St. Minority
Rating: PG-13/R
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Will, Gibbs, brief mention of Bootstrap
Word Count: Around 3,577
Warnings: M/M, nudity, brief language, depression....
Disclaimer: I don't own POTC - all belongs to Elliott, Rossio, Bruckheimer, Disney...I make no profit.
Summary: Some hurts run too deep.
A/N: This is based off of justawench's astounding "Longing" series manips found here, here, and here. The "misery" got to me and weaved the pictures together in a sort of dismal way. :D
This also plays heavily on the fact that Will's lost everything (in my mind), so it's set after DMC.

Hi everyone,

Sorry this place has been so dead for a while. Since I wasn't getting submissions, I figured no one was interested anymore. But I've been getting quite a few requests and I'm more than happy to start things up again.

First things first, I have a few changes in mind regarding awards which you will see with the newest challenge. Basically, I am doing away with the 1st-2nd-3rd system in favor of participation awards. I think this is the best for everyone because you are all so talented and amazing, and hopefully, it will encourage more participation from those who don't like to compete. Award banners will be emailed, so be sure to let me know your email address.

Second, as often as I can, I'm going to issue 1 to 3 day long speed challenges. Now, I will need your help with this, but if you miss a challenge or don't finish in time, feel free to submit your fic as soon as you complete it. At the end of the month (or sooner if there are enough) I will post all the fics from the missed challenges. That way you may take on any challenge you want on your time schedule. But you MUST post somewhere in your header (or preferably the subject line) which challenge you wrote for. Does that sound all right?

Also, so everyone knows which challenge(s) are active, I will make a post that will appear at the top of the community's page. It will also have links to all the previous challenges, so that you may find old ones to complete.

One more change, so there are no more time zone translation headaches...challenges will close at midnight on the day listed. This means you have every minute of the day of the deadline to complete your fic.

And if anyone is working on challenge #12 (as found here) or is interested in completing challenge #12 let me know because the deadline is still set for the end of this month.

I look forward to new stories from all of you!
love,
~Jenwyn

Now, please don't kill yourself and try and do every single one if you don't have much time. I will issue a "go back and complete a past challenge" every ten challenges or so in case you miss one that you'd like to try.

Good luck and here be...

Challenge 12

Posted by tenacitydrader on 9/30/06 at 11:52 pm
Title: Haunted Past
Author: tenacitydrader
Characters: Pretty much everyone
Pairings: Tia Dalma/Davy Jones, Tia Dalma/Barbossa, Tia Dalma/Beckett
Word count: 37K
Rating: PG-13; everything really bad is implied (R if you’re picky)
Genre: Speculative?

Summary: The best summary is in the requirements for the challenge, honestly. This fic has a lot of backstory on Tia Dalma, Barbossa, Davy Jones, and Beckett that is used as a context for what happens after DMC. Anything else I could summarize would sort of be a spoiler…

Disclaimer: All characters and settings herein are property of Disney and Bruckheimer productions. I do not profit from this in the form of monetary or other compensation. No copyright infringement is intended.
Spoilers: Because this is set after Dead Man’s Chest, there are massive DMC SPOILERS!!!

Warnings: This fic wraps up the trilogy, so there is character death herein (also in accordance with requirement group “B”). I don’t kill Jack, but I sort of give him a fate worse than death.

Notes: I did all of requirement group “A” and almost all of requirement group “B.” I think that I actually stuck to canon fairly well, except I did take some creative license by making a this other fic I wrote a while ago part of canon backstory. You don’t have to go and read it, but you should know what it’s about. In a nutshell: between movies, Norrington washes up on Tia Dalma’s beach and she saves his life, plus she shows him what marriage to Elizabeth would have been like. I also sort of fudged Ragetti and Pintel’s first names and I don’t really care if they’re wrong.

Special thanks: I’d like to give a shoutout to everyone who participated in this debate including, but not limited to galadhir and sparrbecuecook; your points of view re: Norrington were incredibly useful in writing this. Finally, I’d like to thank the fine folks who took the time to put the DMC script together.

#12 - the decision

All right my crew, I've come to a decision about #12 -the month long challenge- because I think it is something that everyone would like to try.

The challenge will come to an end this weekend as scheduled, BUT this end will be a "first draft" contest.

What I mean by this is anyone who has a story or who has started a story may enter it for "Challenge 12: DRAFT 1"

The only requirements will be:Collapse )

The new deadline for DRAFT 1 will be 11:59PM EST on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1st in order to give anyone who wants to start or edit things a chance to enter.


Now, since we have a draft 1... we're also going to have a draft 2 contest.

Details for this half of the challenge are:Collapse )



Just to be clear, you do NOT have to enter both phases of this challenge. You may enter one and be done with it, you may enter Draft 1 and then do editing and enter Draft 2 or you may submit half a story for Draft 1 and leave it as a cliffhanger and then enter Draft 2 with the ending (or you could leave your story as a cliffhanger and not enter Draft 2, but please try and finish for the sake of your fans readers ;) ), but really, do whatever makes you happy.

Hopefully this will allow everyone who wants to the chance to participate in this challenge. Sound good?

If you're going to submit a story for Challenge 12: Draft 1, comment here so I know you read this. Thanks! :)

And as always, comment or email if you have questions. elvensorceress@livejournal.com

Love,
Your Captain
