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!

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

Once again it's almost that time.
The annual August Fic-A-Day Challenge over at Twisted Shorts is about to start.
1. Write one fic per day during August. Stories must be complete and stand alone, but series are more than welcome, and they should be BtVS/Angel Crossovers of any rating with any fandom, minimum 300 words, maximum 3000 words.
2. Entries must be posted in the Twisted Shorts Livejournal to be counted.
3. Post more than one a day if you want, but only one fic per 24 hours counts toward the challenge. Backdating fics are not allowed for getting a fic to count within a 24 hour period.
4. There's no 'miss a day and you're out'. If you can't post one day that doesn't mean you're out of the running. Keep posting when you get a chance.
5. Winners will be decided by who has posted on the most days during the month. I.E. If Author A posts 28 fics on 28 days, Author B posts 31 fics on 31 days, and Author C posts 35 fics on 25 days, then Author B wins.
6. Regular posting rules apply: proper header, fic behind cut, adult rated fic comm-locked, disclaimer, etc.
Remember to have fun and don’t forget to check out the suggestions post on TwistedShorts to make posting easier for readers and writers.

(3)Xander is a wizard
(4)it takes place in fourth year when xander would have been a freshman
(5)must be loosely based on the song freshman by the verve
(6)have a reason why xander left the wizarding community for good
lyrics to freshman
When I was young I knew everything
She a punk who rarely ever took advice
Now I'm guilt stricken,
Sobbing with my head on the floor
Stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice
I can't be held responsible
She was touching her face

Xander's road trip takes a turn for the weird as a demon lord does him a 'favor' and adds a little royal blood to the Xan-man. Our favorite donut boy is about to discover exactly how deep the shadows can be.
