It's That Time Again: FIC OR DIE.

Welcome to our now annual Fic or Die challenge! This year the Administrator will be assisted by a herd of threatening and/or cute goats, because goatfarm reasons.



However, other animals are very welcome to join in the bullying encouragement.





As previously established, some of you appear to be hiding away finished, nearly finished, half-finished, or barely-begun fic on your hard drives. Or you're thinking about fic but haven't started writing any because writing is hard. Or you're having fic ideas that you wish someone would write, y'know, someone not you.



Welcome to Fic or Die. Start That Fic. Finish That Fic. Post That Fic. Or Else.

The Rules:


  • Please comment below to pledge to take part in Fic or Die. Throughout the challenge, you will be encouraged (here on IJ and/or on Twitter) to keep going by the Administrator, her trusty assistant(s), the aforesaid herd of goats and other beasties, and hopefully other participants. Consider pressure your friend and ally, or at least the person who in a zombie apocalypse would scream insults at you to keep you angry and alive and killing zombies until you're out of that tight spot.

  • Complete a fic (any fic) by the end of November 30th (deadline will be considered met as long as it's Nov. 30th anywhere in the world).

  • There are no limits on fandom, characters, length, or number of stories. If all you have time for is a drabble, do a drabble! If you want to use this time to churn out 15k in 2 weeks and finish that long-languishing WIP, DOOOOO EEEEEET! Crossovers, AUs, original, anything goes.

  • To assist those who are lacking inspiration, a separate prompts post will follow shortly. The prompts post will be open to all participants and onlookers and will be a place to share prompts that will hopefully inspire people. The prompts post is now live.

  • Post your completed fic anywhere you choose.

  • A submissions post will appear in this journal on Friday, November 20th. Any time between then and Nov. 30th, please post links to your fic in the comments to that post so we may all pounce and delight in your accomplishments. The submissions post is now open.

  • Entries on the submissions post must include a header with all the usual labels, warnings, and information.

You're an oppressing oppressor who oppresses!




Fine, I'm in...
My goal in life! :DDDDDD

You get a gold star for being the first to sign up! <33333333333



(this is in no way a reason to rest on your laurels. I shall await your fic with bated breath and eagle eyes! MWAH.)
Okay, FINE. It's not like I'm going to meet my NaNo goal, so might as well throw ANOTHER writing deadline at myself. GOD.
YEAH BABY!!! Think of it this way: You will be relentlessly badgered for this one, but output is minimal. We will cheer as hard for a Days of Our Lives ficlet as those over-achievers at NaNoWriMo will for whatever ridiculous word count they're demanding. And/or if you choose to post an excerpt from your NaNo here, we will be super-impressed and give you impetus for keeping at it. THERE IS NO WAY TO LOSE. <33333333333333
Alright, alright! I pledge. I pledge. Something. Dunno what yet, but I'll do at least 1000 words for the challenge.
A sizable pledge! SWEET. The Administrator and the goats approve of your commitment (and shall harry you relentlessly until it is met). YAY!!! <3333333333333333333
Okay, okay. I should be able to come up with something, even if it is only Ragnar musing on goats.
Only? I say, please let it be Ragnar musing on goats!
Yeah, I second this! There can never be enough Ragnar/goats. #OTfuckingP
UGH OKAY YOU TWISTED MY ARM I GUESS I'M IN OMG YOU ARE SO ANNOYING MUUUUUUUMMMMMMM FINE I'LL DO IT BUT NOT BECAUSE YOU TOLD ME TO. I WAS GONNA DO IT ANYWAY BEFORE YOU TOLD ME. IT'S JUST COINCIDENCE.

*peeks into fic folder*
*immediately regrets decision*
*will enjoy every second*
Ahahahaha, YES DARLING, I SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT REBEL WAYS.

(lol, omg I haven't even looked at my folders yet. This is going to be torture. Torture but fun!)
Okay okay okay. I'm in!
Yaaaaaaaaaayy!! At this rate, I won't even *have* to oppress anyone, lol! (Also, mad icon love. I want Watchers fic now!)
I do indeed pledge. Or, if I were to apply the distinguised legalese that I have lately been learning:

I, amo-amas-amat, do hearby undertake, swear, pledge, and promise, to produce at least one item of Fic for the Challenge entitled 'Fic or Die' in accordance with the above-mentioned Rules before the deadline so mentioned in the Rules, namely, 30th November.


LA DEE DAA!
Ooooh YAY FABULOUS. All that legalese should come in super-handy for Good Wife fic! (I'm all of 3 eps into the show, but that totally entitles me to all the fic, y/y?)
I solemnly pledge something will happen. It might be a mad, ragey fic where some helpless secretary goes bananas and ties up everyone in her office for a detailed, loud lecture about all the ways they suck.

Or SGA - it'll probably be SGA.
Ooooooh. A "The Reason You Suck" speech? I WANT. Make it happen.

And huzzah for pledging!
Late to the party, but I'm formally pledging! (because my brain really needs to take a vacation from reality rite now)

Brainstorming a certain prompt as we speak ;)

OMG YAY WELCOME!! This makes me so happy! <33333333333333

(and yes, reality is the suck and needs to be ignored so hard.)
Oh hey, I didn´t see this post! Good thing I went back a page... I pledge I will finish something AND produce something new! <3 Thank you for setting this up!!!
Double pledge! HUZZAH! <333

Wow, IJ must really be alive again if there's more than one page to go back to! :D
