    That's right. Back by unpopular demand, and just barely in time to still call itself the 2005 edition, it's fanfic trivia. The contest that strains eyes, frazzles brain cells, and is somehow considered fun.

    'What is fanfic trivia?'

    I can hear the newbies asking that now. Fanfic trivia is a yearly contest where teams of fanficcers compete to show who knows the most about fanfiction here in the forums. Why should you play? Well, obviously for bragging rights, the envy of your friends, the everlasting hatred of your enemies, and, best of all, two weeks of VIP status and a title proclaiming that you know more than the anyone else.

    The rules are simple. You can play the game as an individual, or with a co-conspirator - er, I mean teammate. No more than two people per team, though.

    One week from today, still stuffed with leftover turkey, I will post a looooong list of questions. The game will continue for 9 days until the next Sunday. Completed answer sheets can be submitted any time within that time frame, but no later.

    More rules will follow as I make them up until the game starts. For now all you need to do is snag a teammate and sign up in this thread, preferably with a witty team name.

    Why is it unpopular demand?

    Perhaps the demands themselves were unpopular? There must have been thousands of angry, flaming PMs in Herman's in-box, demanding the Fanfic Trivia Game be held immediately . . . or else. [face_devil]


    Since I tend to be online at odd hours, I think I'll go alone. Call me . . . Too Lazy To Think Of A Team Name. :D

    This is a neat idea...only problem is, I don't even remember hearing the names of some of the stories in last year's trivia when I checked the link, and I lurked the boards for quite a while.
