 Genre Swap

For this main round, we’d like to see you take SPN and turn it on its head by changing the genre completely. Choose your favorite genre (or just one you think would be cool) and ruthlessly throw your ship (and any other characters you’d like) into an AU based on that genre. To clarify, they should always have existed within this genre in the context of your story--this shouldn’t be a French Mistake sort of deal. You are also welcome to blend genres, if you choose, so long as those genres aren't the same as SPN's.

This prompt is open to your interpretation, but if you need ideas, here are some things to consider:

  • What challenges will this genre pose for your characters? What’s the conflict?

  • What roles do your characters play in this new setting?

  • How will their respective backgrounds have changed? How will this change their personality?

  • What is your ship’s new relationship in the context of this new genre?

    • Are they enemies or allies?

    • Have they even met prior to the start of the story?

Entries can be produced by any member of the team, or by the entire team in collaboration. Main Rounds can be in any media, but some media have restrictions.

  • Written entries must be between 1000 and 4000 words.

  • Graphical entries should be no longer than 10 images/panels.

  • Written AND graphical entries should be between 1000 and 4000 and have no more than 4 images.

If your text is somehow embedded in an image, you must include a transcript of the text.

The deadline for Main Round 1 is October 20th. We’re working on creating a MR1 comm, team leaders should receive invites shortly.

Remember to keep all entries anonymous until after voting is over for this round.
