Call for prompts!

he loves me (not)
Curious to see what happens on Halloween with an impending apocalypse?

Well, now's your chance! Reply to this post with your prompts for the Supernatural Halloween challenge!

A few reminders:

1. MUST be a Supernatural Halloween prompt!

2. All genres, characters, pairings, casefic, futurefic, pre-series, MOTW, crossovers, RPF/RPS, AUs, PWP, missing canon scenes, vids, graphics, gen, slash, het, crack, horror, etc. are welcome as long as it coincides with rule number 1! If you are not sure, please ask!

You're welcome to submit as many prompts as you want, and you do not have to participate/claim a prompt to do so. The goal is to produce as many Supernatural Halloween media as possible and the prompts help toward that goal!

You can certainly borrow from the prompt lists for previos years, even if just looking for an idea or recycling an old prompt. I love to see what everyone can do with the expanded scope of the challenge! You have until September 25th, on September 26th the list of prompts will go up for claiming.

(Also, my apologies for getting this up late, I've been sick for a while and have been scrambling to fit everything in.)

September 15th, 2009

Every so often you feel those chills up and down your spine, and you pretend you cannot hear those noises in your basement. Sometimes the wind in the trees howls at night...and you think you're being watched...

Then you know it is time for the Supernatural Halloween Challenge!

Despite my delay, I am looking forward to see what everyone can create! What do the Winchesters do on Halloween? Is it their quietest night? Does Dean make an attempt to find evil creatures and fail? Does Sam have nightmares about wearing yellow polo shirts? Do sprites hypnotize them and make Dean replay the scary cat scream over and over and over?

This is your chance! The challenge kicks off on Friday, when we will start collecting prompts. ETA: This year we will be adding the opportunity for participants to chose between fiction, art, and vids!

Challenge Dates for 2009

September 18 - September 25: Collection of prompts for Supernatural Halloween stories, art, and vids.

September 26: The list of prompts will be posted for claiming and remain open until the end of the challenge.

October 1 - November 7: Post your stories!

November 8 (or sometime that week): A master list of stories and media will be posted.

Challenge Guidelines

1. This challenge is for Supernatural Halloween stories, art, and vids only. If it doesn't have to do with Supernatural and Halloween, and it's not a piece of fanfiction, graphic art, or vid, it doesn't belong here. Crossovers and AUs are fine; real person fic (RPF/RPS) is only allowed if it is part of a Supernatural crossover. If you're not sure your media fits, just ask.

2. There will be a list of prompts to choose from, but once the challenge opens on October 1 all Supernatural Halloween media are welcome, whether or not they are based on a prompt. Stories, art, and vids can be any genre, rating and style, featuring any characters and pairings (or lack thereof). All stories must be at least 500 words long.

3. Posting for the challenge opens on October 1 and closes on November 7 (for a given temporal location of "November 6" which is determined entirely by me, the moderator). Membership for the community is completely open and anybody can join, but posting will be moderated until October 1 to keep people from jumping the gun.

Feel free to look at previous years' master lists and prompt lists for ideas. Don't be shy, let's make this an awesome challenge!

Title: This Ominous Bird of Yore
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Dean/Sam
Warnings: Wincest, S4 spoilers
Prompt: spn_halloween #1, "Something is making ravens flock to a small town in the Northeast. At first they'd just shared the town with the people, but now that Halloween is coming, they've started attacking, and it's up to Sam and Dean to figure out what's going on."
Summary: Sam and Dean find themselves in Reynolds, Maine, a town that is the victim of what seems to be a 160 year old curse with famous roots.
