Twisting the Hellmouth - Latest News

Just a friendly reminder that if TtH doesn't archive stories that cross with certain author's work, because said author has strictly forbidden it, please do not request challenges that cross with these fandoms. Challenges violating this rule will be deleted.

Game of Thrones falls under this umbrella. It might be a television show on HBO, but George R.R. Martin wrote it first and he doesn't approve of fanfiction. He's on that handy list provided in the Rules Section (reference Rule 3).

Below are the list of rules for posting challenges to TtH. They appear every time you click on the 'Add Challenge' button. Please read them before posting a challenge.

Rules for Challenges

1. This is a crossover site. Therefore, you must challenge respondents to write a crossover story between Buffy/Angel and some other fandom. Crossing Buffy with Angel does not count. Challenges purely for one fandom are not accepted here, but may be posted on our forums.

2. All challenges should have a proper title, just like stories. "Buffy/Stargate Challenge!" is not a proper title - make sure it's got a name that will make people a) stop and actually read it, and b) remember it so they can find it again to post a response.

3. We require the same standard of spelling and grammar for challenges that we do for stories. If you can't even manage to spell the names of characters right, the challenge will disappear rather quickly. Hint: press the "Check Spelling" button.

4. Challenges that just ask for a specific crossover, Halloween costume, reincarnation, real parent, or pairing with no other details are not permitted.

5. Read the rules for posting stories. Challenges to write stories that would not comply with these rules (e.g. A real-person fic) will be removed.

6. A good challenge should include a specific scenario / "plot bunny" but not completely prescribe the entire plot of the resulting story. Ask yourself whether it would be possible to write 2 stories with different plots both of which satisfy the challenge?

7. You may post length requirements, but be honest with yourself. If you're asking for a 50,000+ word story, you're not going to get it. Most of the people who respond to challenges are authors with regular stories, who aren't going to put off all their projects to do your story.

For those of you who are new to Twisting the Hellmouth every year a LiveJournal community that is affiliated with TtH, TwistedShorts, hosts a short story challenge. The challenge is to write 31 short stories (300 to 3,000 words in length) in 31 days. One story to be posted each day of the month.

Every year in the month of August most of the LiveJournal members cross post to TtH and that tends to overrun the Latest Page. The moderating team is contemplating implementing a rule in an attempt to curb that influx.

If a TtH member is participating in the Fic-A-Day challenge then all stories posted to TtH must be posted as a ficlet collection rather than as 31 standalone stories. The only exception to this rule would be if a writer is adding to an existing series.

If you would have an objection to this rule being implemented, or support it, now is the time to voice that opinion. Please see the comments link located below to join in the discussion.

It’s almost that time of year again. The International Day of Femslash is July 19th and this year we have a site challenge to coincide with this joyous occasion.

Stories for this challenge should be posted on July 19th, 2014, your local time.

The “2014 International Day of Femslash Crossover First Meeting Challenge” can be located here.

If you have any questions, or just wish to chat about it all day, the forum discussion can be located here.

If you're on the hunt for our annual stunt,
Thursday this week, is the day that you seek.
Not a rhyme-lover? I suggest you take cover,
for thick and fast will verses fly past.
So arouse your muse and write rhyming reviews!

As 2012 comes to a close and a new year approaches, I encourage our authors to look to the future... and where the characters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel: the Series might fit into that future.

Assuming you're one of the people who doesn't ignore the Buffy Season 8/9 comics and their Angel counterparts, the present day in the universe is roughly 2006. For those of us who don't accept the comics, that rolls back to 2004. Either way, you're looking at a significant gap in time between the end of canon and the present. But the point of this event isn't to bridge the gap. No, my brave authors, I am asking you to leap that gap… and return to the world of today.

Almost a decade after the fall of Sunnydale, where are the Scoobies? The core Scoobies and those around them are now in their early thirties or so; a few are a bit younger while others are a bit older. What has become of them in middle age? Are they still together? Are they still on the front lines of the good fight, or have they ceded that to a younger generation while falling back into an advisory capacity? Are they all even still alive? Furthermore… where are the Slayers they have called? Are they depowered as per the end of Season 8's comics, or is there a small army of superpowered girls roaming the world? If it's the former, how have they dealt with their sudden ascension to superhuman status and return to mediocrity? If it's the latter, how is the world dealing with them?

While the primary objective of this site is to encourage crossovers, it is not a requirement for this event. However - and this is important - these stories will not be exempt from Rule 8. If you have a brilliant idea but it's a non-crossover and you don't have the ratio room for it? I suggest writing a new crossover story or posting more of an existing crossover to make room. Because I bet it's a really cool idea and I want to read it… but I can't play favorites. Sorry, folks.

Oh, and one more thing. Nobody's saying you have to go it alone. Grab a few friends and split the story between you; one person can write the brave new world from Satsu's perspective, while another takes Dawn's and another takes Andrew's. I'll be available to help any newer users - or older users who've never touched them before - figure out our special private round robin feature.

There are endless possibilities here. Who's up for exploring them with me?

A few years back we had the rather popular To Boldly Go challenge, where we asked you to write in a fandom where no-one had written before.

This time around, we're going to narrow the field a little, and your challenge is to write a fic that crosses over with one of the IMDb Top 250 Movies of all time, but one with which we don't already have a crossover fic posted to the site.

Add your responses to the challenge
