Ten minutes of your time for my thesis? [Jun. 21st, 2008|10:59 pm]
Battlestar Galactica Flashfiction

noctuabunda
Dear fanfic authors,

first of all I’m sorry if OT posting isn’t allowed in this community, but there’s no other way for me to do this; just delete this if it isn’t appropriate.

I’m a fanfic reader and occasional fanfic writer myself, so what did I pick for my thesis in communication sciences? Fan Fiction, of course. I designed a survey to find out more about our writing habits and media use; it takes about 10 minutes to complete.

If you could go here and fill it out, I’d be forever grateful. Of course I’ll publish some of the results at my journal in about a month or two, so you’ll know what happened with your answers.
The survey is completely anonymous; I have no way of finding out who gave which answers.

Please, please help a fellow fan out. It’s only ten minutes for you; it’s a very important part of my work for me.

This has been cross-posted like crazy, and I'm sorry for spamming you guys, I'm just a little desperate, too.

Now that our dear show is back and kicking it on American tv, bsg_flashfic is back from its little unplanned hiatus.

The new challenge is the Power Challenge. Power outages, power struggles, The Powers That Be, flying under one's own power. Take it however you want and do with it what you will.

This challenge will run til late Thursday night - early Friday morning (EST).

As always, any responses should have the subject line "Title by Author". The community rules can be found here and any suggestions for future challenges can be left in a comment to this post. Remember to mark spoilers for all season two episodes clearly (even if it's been months since it aired in the states, it might not have aired in other countries).

Have fun and feel free to pimp the comm and challenge like woah.

Note: real person fic is now allowed. Please be sure to mark all stories clearly, with actor names (not combinations or pairing smooshes) and a clear disclaimer. If RPF isn't your thing, simply don't read any stories marked as such.

things kind froze up 'round here while I was away in New Orleans. this makes me sad. so, to (hopefully) jump start things again, a new challenge.

the point of the Frak Challenge is to write about frak or frakking (or however the hell it's supposed to spelled). whether that intales cussing, sex, mistakes or other fun things is totally up to you.

as always, any responses should have the subject line "Title by Author". the community rules can be found here and any suggestions for future challenges can be left here.

have fun and remember to feedback like woah.

This Sliver of Time by minerva_fan [May. 31st, 2005|05:27 pm]
Battlestar Galactica Flashfiction

minerva_fan
Title: This Sliver of Time
Author: minerva_fan
Fandom: BSG2003
Character: dead!Roslin
A/N: Written for the “Future Challenge.” I’m not sure if it completely fits the challenge criteria, because it only gives a glimpse of what's happening in the fleet.
Summary: Time moves differently in the afterlife, and you're supposed to move with it. Some people just don’t get it.


I watched as they struggled. I watched as children were born, and friends died, and dreams were crushed and born in Cylon nightmares. I watched as they traveled, crawled in miniscule FTL bursts toward sanctuary. Collapse )

Oops. Looks like we kinda missed a week there, huh? Well, how about we get things going again.

This week's challenge is the darkness challenge. The goal is to put your characters in the dark - whether it's literally or figuratively is up to you.

Have fun writing and feedbacking. And feel free to pimp the comm out to your friends - the more people we have playing the more fun and fic there is. ;)

Since this is a pretty busy week for...well, at least for me, I thought I'd pick a challenge that won't take too much time. The 33 challenge means that you have 33 minutes to write your fic. It can be about anything you want as long as it was written in 33 minutes or less.

Just as a reminder, any responses should have the subject line "Title by Author". The community rules can be found here. If you have any suggestions for future challenges, go here to offer them. And now, go write. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

ETA: The challenge will close next Monday at around 10 p.m. PST (or possibly Tuesday morning, since I'll be computerless for most of Monday).
