    [face_devil] I DARE YOU!! [face_devil]



    Do you have evil plot bunnies following you around, whispering in your ear, wanting to be let out? Well now is the time to set them free!

    Welcome to the Mod's Dare Challenge!
    A fun time to torture your fellow fanficers and get the chance to torture your mods while you're at it!​

    What is the Mod’s Dare Challenge?
    It’s a challenge that pre-dates either of your mods by quite a bit and has been pretty popular in the past. We haven't done it in awhile and there was a request for us to do it again, so here we are!

    It’s basically a challenge where you think of a crazy bunny, as crazy or evil as you want. You are daring your fellow fanficers to write your story. The mods then give your dare to someone to write and you get someone else’s crazy bunny to write. (Think the fic-gift challenge, but instead of something you want, it's something off the wall, crazy or just weird) It’s basically a silly challenge to have fun… and maybe be just a little evil.

    Example of Past Dares:

    [​IMG]
    Pictured: You writing writing the story you were Dared to write


    Okay, I'm in for this insanity! How do I participate?

    Send a PM to either mavjade or Briannakin with:
    1) Your Dare
    2) What era(s) you would like to write in.
    • You may state more than one era or all eras.
    • You may preference what Saga era you would prefer (PT/OT/ST/New Movies) but we can’t guarantee you’ll get it.
    • You’ll then be sent a Dare and you’ll have about a month to write and post it.
    After the end date, we’ll open it up for voting and then we’ll have a winner.


    The dare you submit may be as specific or as vague as you would like. You can have required elements, a word limit, a bizarre/funny plot point, or anything else those crazy plot bunnies want to come up with that still falls within the TOS.



    Writing Rules

    1) No more than 2,500 word story. If you end up making it an epic or more than one post, only the first post will be counted toward the challenge. All elements of the dare must be in that one post.

    2) You must post what you were dared to write somewhere with your story. At the beginning or end is fine, under a spoiler cut is fine.

    3) Make sure to indicate in the title of your story that it is a Dare Challenge Response

    4)Post a link to your story in this thread once you have posted it

    5) As always, the TOS and all board rules apply to your dare and writing.


    Voting Rules
    In the past, only those who posted their response to the dares were eligible to vote. Due to low number of people voting in things, we’ve changed the rules.

    • Anyone may vote
    • If you completed your Dare (as in you posted your story in the time given), your vote counts for 2 points
    • If you complete your Dare and you vote, you get 1 additional point added to your point total
    • If you entered the Dare Challenge but did not complete your Dare, your vote counts for 1 point
    • If you didn’t have anything to do with the challenge, but want to vote, your vote counts for 1 point
    • You may not vote for yourself

    Example of Points System:
    Luke - Completes his Dare; votes for Palpy​
    Leia - Completes her Dare; doesn't vote​
    Vader - Doesn't complete his Dare; votes for Luke​
    Palpy - Completes Dare; votes for Leia​
    Han - Doesn't enter challenge; votes for Palpy​

    [​IMG]

    So, Palpy wins with 4 points. Luke and Leia tie with 2 points each.​
    Had Leia voted, she would have had one more point (since she completed her Dare) and would have come in second and Luke third.​

    Didn't get it? (Don't worry!)​

    We wanted to encourage more votes, but also give those that completed their dare added weight to keep a similar structure to previous Dare Challenges. Basically if you complete your dare and vote, you get a point. Whoever you vote for gets 2 points. If you don't complete your dare, or were just a reader, your vote counts for one point.​



    So what can I get for putting up with all of this?

    The person with the most points gets 1 week of colors and a title

    2nd most points gets 72 hours of colors and a title

    3rd most votes gets 24 hours of colors and a title

    Mod’s Choice Dare - The person the mods choose as having submitted the best dare (regardless if it gets written or not) will get to torture the mods for 1 week with: whatever color combo you want to choose for our names, our icons, and we’ll say you are responsible for this and had the best Dare in our signatures.



    Dates:

    Your Dare must be sent to the mods by: 11:59 pm PST Saturday, February 11th

    Dares will be sent on or before: Monday, February 13th

    Your response to the Dare must be posted by: 11:59pm PST Monday, March 13th

    Voting Begins: Tuesday, March 14th

    Voting Ends: 11:59pm, Sunday April 2nd



    After voting starts, the dares that were not written will be posted so anyone can give them a try!




    So that’s it. We DARE YOU to go out and think of those evil plot bunnies and join in!

    Good luck... you're gonna need it!

    I love that first GIF! I hereby nominate that as official GIF of FanFiction. :-D

    This is very tempting. I can definitely think of a story I'd like to see written, although I don't have anyone in particular in mind to write it. I'm a little afraid of what I'd have to tackle in return... (wanders off to see how long 2,500 words is...)

    So, I'm still thinking it over... but in the meantime, I was looking back at the thread for the last one of these (2014), to see if I could glean a few ideas, and noticed that the "Entries List" in the first post never actually got anything added to it, nor are the dares (written or unwritten) listed anywhere. Is there any chance of that being done for that earlier thread, just as an aid to us who are trying to think something up?

    Thanks for considering. :)

    Oops! [face_blush] I've done it now.
    Only three people completed Dares that year. We're hoping for more this year! :D

    Do I have to submit a dare to receive one?

    Edit: It's always good to read the directions before asking questions. [face_blush]

    so i have two questions:

    1: legends is acceptable, yes?

    2: are crossovers acceptable, or is this only SWs?

    either way i'm definitely interested in this. kinda been wanting to get back into writing outside of the RPF, and this seems like the best way to do that.

    Yes, Legends is perfectly fine.

    While you could certainly add elements of another fandom, it needs to be geared toward Star Wars. But yes, a cross over would be acceptable.

    Seconded. Mine was evil. I want to write a dare that's equally evil.

    I don't know how evil mine is, but its definitely something I'd like to read. I like to attempt evil ones though. I guess we'll see if it lands in my lap, Chyntuck.;)

    I will say, the dares we have so far are amazing. AMAZING. I'm so looking forward to seeing the results of them!

    And this is your reminder that you have 1 week to submit your dare if you want to participate. You know you want to!

    They will be soon! We had a few people last year that didn't get to participate because the submission time was shorter, so we wanted to give people plenty of time.

    And this is a your reminder that there's only a few days left. Dares must be submitted by 11:59 pm PST Saturday, February 11th

    It's going to be a lot of fun and you don't want to miss out!
