reel_merlin: because every fandom needs a film challenge community. (Plus colacube and merelyn really want someone to write a Bring It On AU.) We'll put up a list of film prompts. Choose a movie and then use it to write a story of at least a thousand words or create a piece of art. It's that simple. And awesome.

Timeline for the current challenge (Take 8):

Signups open - Wednesday 24th August 2016

1. Only one writer/artist per prompt. That is, each prompt can be claimed by both a writer and an artist, but two writers cannot write for the same prompt. Co-writing/co-arting (not a word, I know) is allowed.

2. We're asking that all stories must focus/draw from the canon Merlin-verse. Sorry, no crossovers or RPF for this challenge.

3. We also ask that every story be betaed before posting. If you need a beta (or would like to offer your services) please go to this post here.

4. It's not required but we do have a template for posting available here. If you'd prefer not to use it, please include the title, writer/artist, rating, pairings, as well as any warning or spoiler information in your post. You can post directly to the community or link to your personal livejournal.

5. Other than that, anything goes! You can even pick a film not on the list, we don't care! (Unless it has been submitted in a previous round) Stories can fit directly into the canon Merlin-verse, or can be complete AUs. Any genre or rating is allowed. Gen, het, and slash/femslash stories are all welcome and encouraged.

If you still have questions about the challenge please refer to our FAQ Post.
