|Challenge Name||The Buffyverse1000 pairings challenge|
|Challenge Type||Personal Challenge|
|Description||1000 Buffyverse Pairings|
Because our fandom's the sluttiest of them all, dammit!
Once upon a time there was drabble tag. People wrote 100 words of Buffy fic and challenged others to do the same, and it was good. Then someone said, "There are a lot of characters in Buffy and Angel. If somebody wrote all the possible pairings, that would be a lot."
And thus an idea was born.
The goal? 1000 Buffyverse drabbles and ficlets, 1000 different pairings. Sounds insane, yes? Yes. That's the fun part.
So, how it works: at the end of each ficlet the writer provides the next pairing. Actually, this time, people can give up to three. Someone replies with a ficlet for that pairing, and their choice for what's next. And on we go.
This all occurs on the buffyverse1000 LiveJournal site, and has but a few rules : No repetition of couples. Since we're trying for 1000 different pairings or threesomes, it'll make the count easier if there are no repeats in the thread. As such, there's a running list of already completed pairings. And secondly, any combination of characters is allowed; conventional, unconventional, het, slash, femslash, incest, poly or anything I've left out. The inclusion of very obscure characters is not only allowed but encouraged. Rating can be anything - if you can bring the smut, great. Crossovers and RPS are both allowed, provided one person in your pairing/trio/etc is a Buffy or Angel character. There's no set length: if you want to write exactly 100 words, that's fine. A longer ficlet's good, too. More than 500 words will get you an imaginary cookie.
Lastly, Spike and William can be taken as different characters. So can Liam/Angel/Angelus and Willow or Xander/vampire Willow or Xander. If somebody's written Xander/Angel, for example, then Xander/Angelus is still up for grabs.
This challenge is just to enable people on Twisting the Hellmouth who have already posted pairings to be able to have them all located in one link. Both 'pure' BtVS fics and crossovers can be linked to this. Thanks to Jinni for letting me post this challenge link, and doyle_sb4 for coming up with the idea in the first place. Good luck, and happy writing!
