    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    Quote:
    Now in case you missed it last year and are new the premise behind this is simply. The various Authors on the site are donating their time to write something specifically for you!

    That's right. You can finally get that story where Harry Potter turns into an Elephant Animagus and shits all over his enemies... literally!
    The following are a list of some basic rules this will follow to protect the Authors from any rampant fuckery that may or may not have occurred last time we did this:

    • Post here if you want to either Donate Your Skills or Donate your Ideas. If you do not you will not be put in the draw.
    • The Authors are under no obligation to fulfill your request. They are doing this of their own good will and if they are uncomfortable with the request they can decline it.
    • Winners state the outline. That means that while you can control the general gist of what Authors write you cannot control the details.
    ENTRY DEADLINE: 24 December 2014

    It'll then be up to you to contact your significant other if you're the guy with the challenges. I recommend that you ask to check that they can write.

    For example, I'd probably prefer writing Dresden Files fanfics, but I might also do Buffy, RWBY or Harry Potter. Then you deliver the challenge and the author either accepts or declines.

    Lemme know if any problems that you absolutely cannot solve yourselves arise and I'll try to help out and maybe re-assign you.

    Put me in for write and request - Naruto/HP I suppose. Might be able to do Dresden but that'd require me to do more research into it, not nearly as familiar with Dresden as those other two.

    Write and request - RWBY, STALKER or Half-Life.

    I assume it will be set up so people only get fandoms they actually know? I for example know nothing of Dresden Files and the little of Naruto I have seen tells me I wouldn't be able to sit through the first episode.

    Yup, you don't have to worry about being paired with someone with completely different fandoms

    Write and request for me. I can actually write in tons of fandoms, so whoever draws me can contact me and we'll figure something out.

    Write and request for me as well. Can't guarantee a masterpiece, but I'll give my best. Fandoms: HP, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Doctor Who and, maybe, Marvel and DC.

    I'll put my name down to write.

    Harry Potter, Dresden, Doctor Who and DC/Marvel (largely the big names from each) would be the main ones, but there's probably a few other fandoms I could turn my hand to if asked.

    I did this once before and had an interesting story out of it so I'll volunteer to write again. I'm not sure I have a good "request" idea though.

    I'll write, I'm happy to do HP or Dresden fics, up for crossovers based on discussion though :)

    Not interested in requesting, that way maybe someone else has better chance at getting a writer :D

    I'll write. HP, Naruto and Dresden Files are what I feel comfortable writing.

    I'd be happy to write. HP or Naruto. I could probably pull off Starship Troopers, Cthulhu Mythos, or How to Train Your Dragon (HTTYD) fandoms as well.

    Edit: "ENTRY DEADLINE: 24 December 2014" is a bit confusing, btw.

    I still have a badass idea from 2014 that I haven't finished from Xantam. I've been playing with it off and on, but... yeah, it's not done.

    Then again, pretty sure I have a request out there from AlbusPHolmes that he hasn't finished either. ;)

    ...anyway, I feel like I should sit out this year instead of offering to write again, since I didn't finish last time.

    Ping me if you end up super short of ideas though, because I can come up with those if you're short. I've got a list somewhere.

    I'm newer at writing so I can't promise to be stellar, but I'm comfortable writing for either Star Wars (Empire/Rebellion era for best results) or Dresden Files. I could jump in on the request side as well.
