A game of fan fic survival

Because I am all about PB fan fic writers doing things togetherer... especially when those things generate loads of great fan fic for the readers... I am proposing a fan fic writing game that would run through the first 10 weeks of the up coming season.

What game you ask?
** Come on! Didn't that subject give you a hint?

How about a little..
Prison break Fan fic SURVIVOR

Curious? Do you love a challenge?
If you want to know more ... look behind the cut!


Think CBS's Survivor ... an island loaded with laptops and keyboards ... think of me as a short wide, busty Jeff Probst.

If I get the 10 interested parties I think we need we will spend 10 weeks fic'n our way to the Prison Break fic sole survivor.

I've got it laid out much like the show -- No alliances folks ... you must work alone -- in the fact each week one fic writer will be voted off during a secret ballot ( I will set up an email and never tell a soul ) by the remaining authors.

The first two weeks will be team tasks ( teams chosen by some nifty random way I've yet to devise ) the winning team being immune while the losers will have to vote out one of their own.

Week 3 - 10 will be individual fic challenges.
Details on the individual challenges
~ All fics must be completed in 5 days leaving two for voting & fan fic council
~ All fics must be a minimum of 100 words and a max of 1000.
~ No help, not even a beta! If you survive you survive alone!
~ You will write for the challenge issued. You will judged by the other writers based on how well you meet, or try to meet, the challenge given.
~ The challenges WILL push you and TEST you. There will be...
- An MiSa week
- A slash week
- If I'm Probst... A Mahone week.
And many other challenges that may not be in your comfort zone.

While you need not suddenly become a slasher or MS shipper you will have to find a creative and clever way to deal with the task ( remember your fellow authors know you...will be looking for you trying... rising to a tough challenge most of all ) to convince your fellow authors you deserve another week on fic island.

The Game will be set up and played in a comm where you will..
~ Receive the challenge in a post
~ Post your responses
~ People can read and comment on responses
~ State your case -- I've never written slash so I tried to do a lot with a look or touch. I had no time so I did all I could with a angsty drabble -- before fic council take place.

I think it will be loads of fun.
While I know completing is scary because it seems as if could easily lead to bickering I want you to know I think we can all have a sense of humor -- Like having you torch snuffed... * Turn in your keyboard and leave the island * ... will be a real badge of honor for those brave enough to take up the challenge. -- and all kinds of fun together on the island.

I'll keep you all from fighting... make sure you have fun! :o)

In closing... a game needs a prize!
While I am not in a position to offer a million $$ to the last writer standing
I am in the position to say...

" The winner, the sole Survivor, will get a Michael Scofield Barbie doll "

I'll get out the brushes to paint tiny tattoos ... loving sew a little white wife beater ... and make a Michael Scofield Barbie for the last writer standing.



So that's the deal!
Do you have questions?
Any thoughts as to whether you'd like to become a contestant... Survivor!
