Extension x2 [03 Jul 2006|09:18pm]

lostt1
I'm so sorry guys! I don't think the other mods and I realized that we extended the deadline for the "party" theme that it would fall during a holiday weekend. As such, life is a bit hectic at the moment for all of us. For that reason, we are extending the deadline once more time. The new deadline will be one week from today, July 10th at 11:59 CST.

Once again, I apologize. We have already gotten some great stories in. If you've been planning on writing a story for this theme, here's your chance!

The Way We Danced - Moxody (PG-13) [01 Jul 2006|11:58am]

moxody
[ mood | excited ]

Title: The Way We Danced
Author: Moxody
Characters/Pairings: Troy/Hannah, Veronica/Casey, Weevil/Lilly, Felix/Meg, Corny/Lilly..sorta...
Rating: PG-13 for mild swearing and mild impliying that certain people are doing certain things...*cough*
Word Count: Errr...6109 words. I made a mistake when reading the rules and thought that each seperate ficlet had to be 1000 words, not 1000 total 0.o I only realised for the Felix/Meg one, which is why it's shorter than the others.
Spoilers: Erm, none really because it's technically all AU. It's mentioned in one that Lilly's dead...=P
Summary: Five Things that Never Happened at a Party in Neptune. Mostly AU.
Notes:My first ever fanfic! Wheee! This challenge attracted me too much ^^ Well, basically the only thing that the fics have in common is the following quote:

Troy: What do you say, dawg? You ready to Collapse )? You ready to Collapse )?

Collapse )?

Duncan: My plan, and I haven't worked this out entirely yet, so bear with me, was to...
Collapse )

Troy: See, that is so you, man, Mr. Old School.
Duncan: Me, old school? You're the one who wanted to come down here and
Collapse ). So, uh, you wanna go meet the locals or what?
Troy: As long as they're humble, God-fearing, salt-of-the-earth types.
Duncan: Every last one.


One last thing, I've only started to use Lj a few days ago and am still a bit weak on the html, so please forgive me if this post is messed up ^^

"Missed Kisses" - jacedesbff (PG-13) [20 Jun 2006|12:47am]

jacedesbff
[ mood | amused ]

Title: Missed Kisses, (Logan/Veronica, ensemble), PG-13, 1/1
Author: jacedesbff
Pairing/Character: Logan/Veronica, ensemble
Word Count: 3000+
Rating: PG-13; lots of intense, yummy kisses
Summary: five unrelated stories from different universes that tell the stories of five kisses that Logan and Veronica never had at parties in Neptune
Spoilers: all of seasons 1 and 2 as stories span the entire spectrum
Disclaimer: Rob Thomas owns all.

A/N: Written for the latest 5thingsthat challenge. The deadline was extended and I really wanted to get these down on paper. Each vignette is in no way connected to the other; the thread holding them all together is that each one tells the story of a kiss that Logan and Veronica never had (although I really wish that a couple of them had actually occurred!) Oh, and while it’s firmly PG-13, it’s, um, *fans self*, *fans self*. *laughs*

Thank you forever to my insanely talented beta havemy_heart. Xposted to 5thingsthat, veronicamarsfic, fic_from_mars and damaged_box. Feedback is crack. Behold the fluffage!


( Get a clue, epic boy. If you’re ever lucky enough to get in my pants, I’d like you to remember it. )

Thanks so much to everyone who has already submitted fic and I can't wait to see what the rest of you come up with!

Author: Kantayra
Characters/Pairings: Logan/Dick, with some L/V and L/V/Dick...er, kinda...
Rating: NC17

Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,855
Spoilers: Season One: specifically, Pilot and Weapons of Class Destruction

Pretty Little Dirty - plasticeneposes (R) [29 May 2006|12:11am]

plasticeneposes
Title: Pretty Little Dirty
Author: plasticeneposes
Characters: Lamb, Madison, Dick, Mac
Rating: R
Words: 3867

Notes: Just to clarify, the parties used are: Lamb's barbeque, as mentioned in "Credit Where Credit is Due"; Madison's birthday party from "Silence of the Lamb"; the graduation party at the Neptune Grand from "Not Pictured"; Dick's New Year's party, as mentioned in "Versatile Toppings"; and the Alterna-Prom from "Look Who's Stalking". So obviously, there are spoilers for all of these episodes, as well as "The Rapes of Graff".

( If there's one thing Madison Sinclair despises, it's being told what to do. )

Round Three Challenge Post [17 May 2006|01:45pm]

offtheceiling
Round Three:
Five Things That Never Happened at a Party in Neptune


May 17, 2006 - June 17, 2006

Moderators: txtequilanights, lostt1 and sarah_p


The Challenge:

Over the last two seasons, Neptune's citizens have been hosts to every time of party imaginable. Beach raves, proms, Christmas parties complete with carolers and fake snow. We know what happens at these parties. People fight, actors get stabbed, murders are solved, and, usually, there's a good healthy dose of angst to go along with the spiked punch.

But what doesn't happen?

The challenge for Round Three is to pick a party, any party, and tell us five things that didn't happen during the festivities. Actually, pick several paties if you so wish! Your fic can feature as many of Neptune's parties as you want, as long as they were all at least mentioned in canon. For example, Logan's "Life is Short" party? Fine! Dick's New Year Party? Sadie Casablancas' Halloween party? Good and good! However, "a party Aaron threw when Logan was 5"? Not fine. If you have any questions about if a particular party counts, leave a comment and ask!

Rules:

1. All submitted fics must follow the 5 Things format. That is, they must be composed of five seperate vignettes that all relate to the challenge.

2. Submitted fics must be at least 1000 words.

3. Anyone can enter any of the challenges, all you have to do is join the community to gain posting access.

4. We ask that any writer's who sumbit fics please add one of our banners to their user info. We're not going to hunt you down and check on you, but it's a great way to spead the word and make sure we all have lots of great fic to read!


Posting Guidelines:

1. Fics are due June 17 by 11:59 CST to be considered for voting.

2. Please write the title of your fic, followed by your user name and the rating as the subject line of your post.
For example: Up-Chuck the Boogie - Me (PG-13)

3. In the heading of the post, please include:
Title:
Author:
Characters/Pairings:
Rating:
Word Count:
Spoilers:
Summary:
Notes:


4. Please post the actual fic behind a LJ cut.

5. Cross-posted fics and off-site links/fake cuts are allowed.

6. If you cross-post a fic written for this community to another community, please be sure to link back to this community in the post.


I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
