|Challenge Name||The Apocalypse'verse|
|Challenge Type||Personal Challenge|
|Category||Multiple Crossings > General|
|Description||Inspired by our good friends at the TtH forums, this challenge is offered to all.|
When the First Evil got smacked down, it decided to regroup and try again (see the first story, 'The End's Beginning' by myself for the set up).
Now, here’s the challenge to authors: Pick a single (only ONE) BtVS/AtS character that you like to write and one or two fandoms to go with them (no more than two, though…at least until everyone has had a chance to pick). Then start a ‘verse based on the adventures they have there trying to prepare for the final showdown. For example: Fred goes to a world where she encounters the geeks-- er, guys from The Big Bang Theory and from Eureka.
Rule #1: I don’t mind some powers, but they shouldn’t be a Sue or Stu, okay? The reason they are going to these ‘verses is to gather people to help defeat the First in that dimension. If they are a Sue/Stu, they don’t need anyone else.
Rule #2: No excessive bashing of other characters or the crossovers you choose to use…unless they are evil and deserve to be bashed – like Voldemort. What is excessive bashing? Well, if somebody was treating your favorite character that way, would it upset you? Be honest with yourself.
Rule #3: It’d be nice for these to be long stories. If you don’t think you can handle at least 20,000 words, please don’t sign up. (10,000 for a minor character like Owen, Buffy’s first date in Sunnydale)
Rule #4: We also don’t want unfinished fics. If there hasn’t been an update for a year, a warning will be sent out. If there are six more months of no updates after that, the story will either be removed from the Apocalypse‘verse or a new author will take over where the old author left off.
Rule #5: If there is blatant violation of the other rules, a warning will be given. If it continues, a majority vote of all the authors in the ‘verse will decide whether the story and author in question should be removed from the Apocalypse‘verse. It will remain on TtH because I don't have - or want - the authority to remove it there; it just won't be listed on the Apocalypse'verse official list of stories.
Authors can suggest other rules or revisions to these ones and when there’s at least 7 authors total, they can vote on the changes. I hopefully made these ones reasonable, though.
Keep an eye on this story for any updates as to which characters/fandoms have already been selected by other authors. In the case of a fandom that has a spin-off fandom which isn’t being used, the spin-off can be taken by a new author; just avoid any characters from the original fandom.
Anyone who would like to handle fanart for the ‘verses is welcome to join the team!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that dead characters don't have to be dismissed; they could have started their adventures when they died. Also, if you truly want to make this 'verse epic, you can go the evil route and have the Senior Partners make the same offer to their side. Just imagine...Adam or Darla going off on their own.
