Apocalypse Kree 2017 - Call for Prompts

The rules can be found here.

Call for Prompts!

1. Anyone can submit prompts, whether or not you plan on creating something.
2. Prompts must be more than one word. Traditional apocafic prompts are welcome, as well as those that put a different spin on things. Feel free to be creative. You can use specific scenarios, a series of words, lyrics (try to keep these down to a few lines), quotes, pictures (please link to and warn for non-work safe pics), episodes, etc.
3. You can choose to specify a single character, two or more characters in a platonic relationship (A & B or A & B & C), a pairing/threesome/moresome (A/B or A/B/C), or 'any' (meaning any character in any relationship). The default is 'any.'
4. Once again, there is a limit of seven new prompts per person.
5. I reserve the right to throw out prompts that are only one word, that are repeats of another prompt (unless they’re a different pairing) or that are graphic and intense. (You really have to submit something pretty sick to gross me out, so I don’t foresee this as a problem. It’s really more of a 'don't post pics of entrails' type of thing.)

TL&DR:
Specify character OR pairing OR 'team' OR 'any,' and then give a prompt of more than one word.

Note that "&" means a gen relationship (usually friendship, but you can use it for an antagonistic relationship if you like) and "/" means a sexual and/or romantic relationship.

Prompts will be taken through November 25th. Prompts will be posted around November 26th. Works are due, at the latest, by January 31st.

FYI: While you're certainly welcome to leave multiple comments as you think of more prompts, you're also welcome to leave multiple prompts in the same comment, as long as they're on different lines (with maybe an extra space in between if they run for more than one line).

If you have questions, you can ask them over here.

Apocalypse Kree 2017 - Official Rules Post

Another year, another round of apocalypse_kree! This is the rules post; the prompt post will go up right after this.

Once again, we're going with a multi-fandom fest. Write a story. Make some art. Make a vid. Record some podfic. Whatever you like, as long as it involves Stargate and destroying the world! Or at least badly damaging it.

Similar to last year, there's a limit to number of prompts you can submit in order to keep the already unwieldy list from growing too much more. Once again, you'll be able to pick prompts from a list of all past prompts.

The Official Rules

The Process:

1. Interested parties will submit prompts to the prompt post.
2. I'll add the new prompts to the central prompt list.
3. Creators will claim a prompt or two that they wish to create something for.
4. Creators will have a significant amount of time to create their fanworks.
5. Creators will post their works during the week that works are due.
6. ALL SHALL ENJOY! (Also, there will probably be a master list of works at some point.)

The Timeline:

November 13th - November 25th: Prompts may be submitted.
November 26th-ish: Prompt claiming begins.
January 15th: Prompt claiming closes.
January 16th to 31st: Works can be posted during this period.

The Prompts:

1. Anyone can submit prompts, whether or not you plan on creating something.
2. Prompts must be more than one word. Traditional apocafic prompts are welcome, as well as those that put a different spin on things. Feel free to be creative. You can use specific scenarios, a series of words, lyrics (try to keep these down to a few lines), quotes, pictures (please link to and warn for non-work safe pics), episodes, etc.
3. You can choose to specify a single character, two or more characters in a platonic relationship (A & B or A & B & C), a pairing/threesome/moresome (A/B or A/B/C), or 'any' (meaning any character in any relationship). The default is 'any.'
4. Once again, there is a limit of seven new prompts per person.
5. I reserve the right to throw out prompts that are only one word, that are repeats of another prompt (unless they’re a different pairing) or that are graphic and intense. (You really have to submit something pretty sick to gross me out, so I don’t foresee this as a problem. It’s really more of a ‘don’t post pics of entrails’ type of thing.)

The Rules:

1. Prompts will be claimed first come/first serve. I realize this gives my half of the world a slight advantage, but I’m hoping there will be plenty of prompts, and people often take a while to decide which prompts they want.
2. You may claim up to two prompts to start.
3. You may claim your own prompts if you wish.
4. If you finish early, you're welcome to come back and claim another prompt. And then another, until we run out of time.
5. If you find a prompt isn't working for you, you're welcome to return to the claim post and trade it in for a different one at any point.
6. If you know you're not going to finish before the close of the claiming period, I'd appreciate it if you could let me know by replying to this post so that I can add your prompt back into the pot.

Note: Prompts can go over here.

Please reply to this post with questions, comments, and early notifications of inability to finish a story so that I can release your prompt back into the wild. COMMENTS ARE SCREENED. Comments and questions will be unscreened. Drop-out notifications will remain screened.

Finally, please feel free to pimp! There are some banners here. If you want to make your own, please, go ahead.

Apocalypse Kree 2017 Is On!

The polls are closed and it looks like we have six people interested in participating in this year.

I'm going to go ahead with it. I'll post the all for prompts tomorrow. I expect it will be very similar to last year's.

Would any of the people involved in creating the prompt spreadsheet last year like to take charge of that again this year? If not, I'll do it, of course, but let me know.

Get ready to destroy the world again!

Apocalypse Kree 2017?

It's that time again: I'm here to gauge interest in another round of apocalypse_kree. If you're still around and still interested in creating something for apocalypse_kree, please fill in the poll below. If we get enough people who want to write, I'll run it again, with posting to come sometime next year.

This poll is closed.

Are you interested in participating in apocalypse_kree this year?

Definitely! Can't wait!

Apocalypse Kree, Now on Dreamwidth!

And it's done! Apparently the first rush is over, so it's no longer necessary to wait a week for the import. I'm planning to play with the layout a bit to see if we can't get something more interesting, but otherwise, everything is there.

If you're interested in seeing it, you can find a mirror of this comm over at [community profile] apocalypse_kree.

If you've posted something to apocalypse_kree and want to be able to edit or delete your entry or comment over at DW, I believe you'll need to claim you OpenID there (assuming you haven't already). The instructions for doing so can be found here. Hopefully that will work; it's been a while since I've done this.

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Dreamwidth Update

A quick note: Since no one objected to us using DW in some form, I'm going to back up apocalypse_kree over there. I'll post here once it's done.

As far as the next round goes, the results were mixed, so I think I'll ask again closer to the date and see how people feel at that point.

The Exodus to Dreamwidth

Given the recent changes to LJ's TOS and the subsequent migration to Dreamwidth, I'm considering either backing up apocalypse_kree over there, or just moving the whole community over. Before I do, how do you all feel about that?

If you participate as either a writer or reader in apocalypse_kree and have an opinion on LJ vs. DW, please fill in the poll below.

Apocalypse Kree Index 2016

Here's the round-up for the 2016 round of apocalypse_kree. Thanks to everyone who participated!

The stories!Collapse )
Title: No Plan Survives Contact With The Enemy
Author: mific
Rating: Explicit
Fandom: SGA/SG1
Pairings: John Sheppard/Ronon Dex, Rodney McKay/Jennifer Keller
Wordcount: ~10,700
Warnings: Post-apocalyptic so massive population loss. Major character loss (probably death) prior to the series (check the notes below). Story contains issues around religious belief.
Prompt: "It was a long way to travel, and they weren't sure who would be there when they arrived."
Summary: It was a very different world now.
Notes: This is a non-Stargate Earth-based AU that continues my series The Rapture. This (probably final) part of the series has been a ridiculous number of years coming, so apologies for that.

Briefly, this is a post-apocalyptic AU where John and Ronon (ex-cops from what used to be the Vegas PD) are together and are parenting Torren in Teyla's Las Vegas apartment, after Teyla and much of the world’s population—anyone who believed in gods or supernatural beings—vanished in beams of white light up into alien spaceships. Rodney worked at Area 51 and knew Teyla, but not John or Ronon. After "the Rapture”, he liberated a Humvee and drove to Teyla’s place, and has now joined forces with Ronon and John. In this story they hit the road, as it's too hard to survive in Vegas any more with easily-scavenged supplies running low. Rodney's heard about this place in Colorado, though . . .
