Xmen: Brand

Sign Ups Are Open!

Hi folks! I’m your moderator, ficwize. You can contact me at bewize @ yahoo . com (no spaces!). I'm still looking for a second mod, so if anyone is interested, please let me know! I'd really appreciate someone who is tech savvy enough to do things like… update the tags!

General Info

To sign up, you'll make four requests. For each one, you'll request a crossover of up to three movies or characters from various movies, or a pairing and a specific request or scenario. Your writer will pick one of your requests to write a story about. We ask that you keep your prompts vague enough to allow your writer to have fun, but don’t be afraid to ask for what you want, either.

This year, one of your requests may be crossing a Marvel movie with a non-Marvel-but-still-comic-book movie. (Batman: The Dark Knight/Iron Man, Kick Ass/Wolverine: Origins, etc.). It is important to note that this request will NOT be used to match you with your author. It is a wild card request and will be treated as such! For now, if the movie you'd like to use as your non-Marvel movie has a comic attached to it, it is a valid choice. If you do not want a non-Marvel crossover, you may request a fourth Marvel crossover instead.

You'll also list at least at least three movies (preferably five) that you are willing to write. Please do not list X-1,2,3 or Spidey 1,2,3 and think that you’re meeting the guidelines. You must pick at least two franchises (X-men, Spiderman, Hulk, Iron Man, etc.) to include, although more is better. (Keep in mind that the source material is only a few hours of commitment to absorb, too. So, stretch out, if need be!)

In addition to the movies, you may name characters, pairings or scenarios that you will not write. This is very important! If you are not willing to write Rhodey from Iron Man, then you need to make sure that you say that! If you don’t, and you receive a request asking for Rhodey, that will be YOUR problem, not mine. (Please don’t make it mine. You won’t like me if your problem becomes mine.) Likewise with slash, teacher/student, incest, etc. Be as specific as you need to be!

Finally, if you are willing to write comics characters that aren’t in the movie, please give me an indication of who that would be.

I reserve the right to beg you to change as need be, but I won’t force the issue. Last year, given the nature of the requests, I did end up with one person who was nearly impossible to match. So, please keep in mind that the more varied your requests, and the more generous your offers, the more fun this will be for me. *ahem*

All stories must be at least 1000 words.

Thanks to the xmmficathon for providing a format for the rules, which I stole and tweaked.
