FAQ
Even if you have read the rules before, read them again, as some things have changed.

How does this work?

Here's what you do:

1. Pick a character, any character.
2. Pick up to four fandoms that you feel comfortable writing in; the fandom your character comes from can't be any of them.

That is all you need to do. What we will do, using highly scientific methods (and by that we mean Wikipedia, our list of characters, and a bag of dice), is pick a character from one of those other fandoms to meet your character in a bar. You will then produce a fanwork from your prompt (see below for guidelines).

What?

Okay. Let's say you sign up. You pick Kara Thrace, and you feel comfortable writing in Dragon Age Inquisition, Mythbusters RPF, Blake's 7, and Man from UNCLE (2015).

I roll the dice, and through my magical methods, decide that the other character is Gaby Teller. So your prompt is, "Kara Thrace goes into a bar and meets Gaby Teller," and you need to produce a fanwork about it.
