Twisting The Twilight Zone 2009 Challenge
I saw this via the sv_ledger and it looks interesting. It's a multifandom challenge in which the titles and/or synopsis from Twilight Zone episodes are used as prompts. They're accepting a wide range of entires from fic to vids to art. Deadline to sign up is February 28th and posting closes on March 21st.
There's no limit on fic length or on the number of entries. There are over 100 titles to choose from and titles can be used by more than one person.
There's a part of me that wants to participate. Nothing in the rules states that the fic has to be Twilight Zone-esque but if I play I would prefer to go that route and do something a bit off kilter. Mustangsally and rivkat's X-Files fic Tikkun Olam, which is a real trip, comes to mind, as does the Smallville episode "Labyrinth" and Forever Knight's "Curiouser and Curiouser". Actually, all of Nick's dream sequences on FK come to mind. LaCroix as the short order cook from hell anyone? And one of the titles lends itself to a story set in the "Curiouser and Curiouser" alternate reality. Hmm, something to ponder.
