Supernatural Crossover Fic
The Fandom Firsts Crossover Challenge

I love adding new fandoms to the tags list. I just gives me a little jolt to see SPN crossed over with another fandom. And if it's a story crossing SPN over with a fandom I love, yipee!

And this gave me an idea for a challenge.

As you can see, there are plenty of fandoms listed in that sidebar over there. But there are still plenty of fandoms that haven't made the list yet. And that's your challenge.

Write a crossover between SPN and a fandom that's not on the tags list.

That's the only rule, really. Whatever fandom you cross SPN over with, it can't already be on the list as of right now. (I actually have a copy of the current list, so we're set. :D )

Other than that, you can write anything you want. Gen, het, slash, humor, angst, action, fluff, smut, crack...feel free to go where the muse takes you. But, remember, to qualify as a crossover, at least one character from each fandom must make an appearance in the story.

Here a little FAQ for ya.

1. How long should your story be?
The minimum length is 1,000 words long. There is no maximum limit, but keep the deadline in mind.

2. When is the deadline?

Monday, Sep. 8th is the deadline. As soon as the calender on your computer says it is Sep. 8th, you can post your story.

I'm not going to put a specific time on the deadline. Just try to post your story before it's officially Tuesday wherever you are. :D

3. Can you write more than one story?
Sure, if you feel really inspired.

4. What if a fandom is on the tags list, but there aren't actually any fanfic posts for that fandom?
If the only posts for a fandom are fanart posts, or requests/plot bunnies, or anything else than an actual fanfic, you can use it for this challenge.

I have a copy of the current list of tagged fandoms. Even if someone dropped by tomorrow and posted a crossover between SPN and The Care Bears, you can still use The Care Bears in your own fic because they aren't on the list.

And that is all.

If you're interested in taking the challenge, comment below. Just don't mention the fandom you have chosen. We want it to be a surprise. :D

Also, if you want to drop a few hints about what crossovers you'd like to see, go for it. You just might give someone a great idea.

I just happen to be working on a crossover right now that *isn't* on the list. So I'll take up this challenge! *grins*

Man, I can't wait to see what that fandom is.

See, it's like crossover Christmas. :)

Hmmm... maybe this should kick me of that darns writter's block.

Aw, a fellow sufferer. I know how you feel. I hope the challenge gives you a boost.
2nd-Sep-2008 12:18 am (UTC)
Ooohhhh... now that's an interesting challenge and I've had the urge to write a crack!fic lately. *scampers off*
2nd-Sep-2008 08:27 pm (UTC)
There can never be too much crack.

Here is a suggestion something historical, like Band of Brothers or Saving Private Ryan. (Or is that just the history major in me?)
2nd-Sep-2008 08:29 pm (UTC)
I like that idea. I'd love to see Sam and Dean in different time periods.
2nd-Sep-2008 05:29 am (UTC)
Technically, Batman is on the list, but I don't think The Dark Knight . Could I use that? Someone posted a TDK/SPN a few weeks ago, but it involved Bats and Tamara (that lady from the season 3 premiere whose husband died), and I really want to write a fic involving Dean and Sam and either Batman or Ledger!Joker.
2nd-Sep-2008 08:31 pm (UTC)
Hey, The Dark Knight isn't on the list, so you can definitely use it. :D

When searching for a possible muse, I noticed that some of the fandoms that are listed just have one post for them containing GRAPHICS, of all things. No fic at all! (Knight Rider, for example.) Are these fandoms therefore still closed?
3rd-Sep-2008 01:45 am (UTC)
I actually thought about this...but promptly forgot it again. :D Thanks for reminding me.

So here's a slight alteration to the challenge rules.

Even if a fandom is listed, if there are no actual fanfic posts for that fandom, it's up for grabs. Because, technically, your story will still be the first fic post for that fandom in this LJ.

I'm definitely interested in taking on the challenge. We'll see what I can come up with.

Right now I'm thinking about a crossover with The Professional and/or The Fast and The Furious, etc

We'll see.
7th-Sep-2008 08:12 am (UTC)
Oh, I'd want to read either one. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
6th-Sep-2008 09:27 pm (UTC)
Oh FUN!!!!, I will defintely take a look and see what I can add :D
7th-Sep-2008 02:18 am (UTC)
The more the merrier!
7th-Sep-2008 01:25 am (UTC)
I just ran across this, and who knows if I'll come up with something. Could you direct me to a copy of the list, please?

You'll find the list here:

http://community.livejournal.com/sn_crossovers/tag/

Just ignore anything that starts with a period. :D
7th-Sep-2008 05:28 am (UTC)
Is the story supposed to be posted before the 8th, on the 8th, or after the 8th? Because this looks really fun and I'd like to try...but I don't think I can get anything written and beta'd (that's even remotely legible) by the 8th.
7th-Sep-2008 08:15 am (UTC)
The deadline is the 8th. Also, posting something that hasn't been beta read is fine. Just mention that it's a rough version in your header. We're pretty forgiving 'round here. :D

*lays head down* I have *checks watch* fifteen minutes of monday left, but I finished. But not only is it the first SPN crossover, I think that it's also the only story for that movie period. And after I finished it, I had other crossover ideas. I'd blame you, dannyblue, but right now I'm too tired. *crawls into bed* I'll blame you tomorrow.
8th-Sep-2008 01:28 am (UTC)
I've got a crack-tastic two-part crossover in the works. The first part is ready right now and over the minimum, but the second part, not so much. Is posting part 1 now and the second part later okay?
8th-Sep-2008 04:14 am (UTC)
I've finally thought of something to do for this. *runs to meet deadline*
13th-Sep-2008 07:11 am (UTC)
Hey, I thought I'd like to play too! I will be posting tonight. Hope crack!fic is okay...

Looks fun! Thanks for hosting. ♥
