If you're on the hunt for our annual stunt,
Thursday this week, is the day that you seek.
Not a rhyme-lover? I suggest you take cover,
for thick and fast will verses fly past.
So arouse your muse and write rhyming reviews!

As 2012 comes to a close and a new year approaches, I encourage our authors to look to the future... and where the characters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel: the Series might fit into that future.
Assuming you're one of the people who doesn't ignore the Buffy Season 8/9 comics and their Angel counterparts, the present day in the universe is roughly 2006. For those of us who don't accept the comics, that rolls back to 2004. Either way, you're looking at a significant gap in time between the end of canon and the present. But the point of this event isn't to bridge the gap. No, my brave authors, I am asking you to leap that gap… and return to the world of today.
Almost a decade after the fall of Sunnydale, where are the Scoobies? The core Scoobies and those around them are now in their early thirties or so; a few are a bit younger while others are a bit older. What has become of them in middle age? Are they still together? Are they still on the front lines of the good fight, or have they ceded that to a younger generation while falling back into an advisory capacity? Are they all even still alive? Furthermore… where are the Slayers they have called? Are they depowered as per the end of Season 8's comics, or is there a small army of superpowered girls roaming the world? If it's the former, how have they dealt with their sudden ascension to superhuman status and return to mediocrity? If it's the latter, how is the world dealing with them?
While the primary objective of this site is to encourage crossovers, it is not a requirement for this event. However - and this is important - these stories will not be exempt from Rule 8. If you have a brilliant idea but it's a non-crossover and you don't have the ratio room for it? I suggest writing a new crossover story or posting more of an existing crossover to make room. Because I bet it's a really cool idea and I want to read it… but I can't play favorites. Sorry, folks.
Oh, and one more thing. Nobody's saying you have to go it alone. Grab a few friends and split the story between you; one person can write the brave new world from Satsu's perspective, while another takes Dawn's and another takes Andrew's. I'll be available to help any newer users - or older users who've never touched them before - figure out our special private round robin feature.
There are endless possibilities here. Who's up for exploring them with me?
A few years back we had the rather popular To Boldly Go challenge, where we asked you to write in a fandom where no-one had written before.
This time around, we're going to narrow the field a little, and your challenge is to write a fic that crosses over with one of the IMDb Top 250 Movies of all time, but one with which we don't already have a crossover fic posted to the site.
Add your responses to the challenge

Once again it's almost that time.
The annual August Fic-A-Day Challenge over at Twisted Shorts is about to start.
1. Write one fic per day during August. Stories must be complete and stand alone, but series are more than welcome, and they should be BtVS/Angel Crossovers of any rating with any fandom, minimum 300 words, maximum 3000 words.
2. Entries must be posted in the Twisted Shorts Livejournal to be counted.
3. Post more than one a day if you want, but only one fic per 24 hours counts toward the challenge. Backdating fics are not allowed for getting a fic to count within a 24 hour period.
4. There's no 'miss a day and you're out'. If you can't post one day that doesn't mean you're out of the running. Keep posting when you get a chance.
5. Winners will be decided by who has posted on the most days during the month. I.E. If Author A posts 28 fics on 28 days, Author B posts 31 fics on 31 days, and Author C posts 35 fics on 25 days, then Author B wins.
6. Regular posting rules apply: proper header, fic behind cut, adult rated fic comm-locked, disclaimer, etc.
Remember to have fun and don’t forget to check out the suggestions post on TwistedShorts to make posting easier for readers and writers.

It's almost that time again. The 5th Annual International Day of Femslash is July 14th this year. A little under three weeks away, for you calendar-challenged folks out there, which means that if you haven't started writing anything for it... now's the time to get started.
I'd point out that I already have ideas for crossover femslash, but that's kinda like pointing out the sky's blue. So... what about the rest of you?
Start something new. Finish something old. Words or pictures... although we don't allow anything really raunchy with pictures and this IS a fan fiction website, so you might be better off with words.
PS: Free cookies to anyone who can do a crossover femslash story (one-shots are fine) starring Kennedy, Harmony, or one of the Cordettes as the BtVS/AtS character. The real challenge, though? They have to be *GASP* likable.
The folks from Can't Stop the Serenity are holding a Joss Whedon fan-fiction reading evening tonight, including stories from here at Twisting the Hellmouth. You can catch the livestream here.
Can’t Stop the Serenity (CSTS) is a unique opportunity to indulge your geeky side while doing some good! Since 2006, fans have organized screenings of Joss Whedon's Serenity to raise funds and awareness to support Equality Now in their work for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women around the world.
If you want to support them, you can donate here, and post challenges for the readers.

A challenge from ScottWanderer
A whole slew of people lost a major bet with one Xander Harris, now they all have to dress up as fictional or real soldiers for halloween. This would normally not do too much, Xander is on the radar of some very powerful entities. They decide to mess with the plans of the Powers that Be by helping Janus empower his spell. The Scoobies wind up with all the skills and abilities of their costumes.
-Costume Victims to include, but not limited to: Buffy, Willow, Xander (of course), Cordellia, Harmony, Aura, Amy, Gwen, Jonathon, Andrew, Warren, Angel, Giles, Dawn, Jenny, J...
Sirius Black had his own plan to protect the infant Harry Potter.
Buffy lands on Tatooine after jumping through the portal in "The Gift." Events take place through Episode 1, The Phantom Menace. Buffy/Obi-Wan
Feeling confused and abandoned, Dawn remembers someone she met in a graveyard months before... Follows "Many the Hearts"
The present may be the key to the past, but the past that is unlocked often changes how the present is perceived. Buffy stumbles upon her heritage and finds that disclosed secrets change more than she thought possible.
Even the Powers That Be can't protect mankind from itself. Civilization falls apart beneath the brunt of an unscheduled apocalypse and the Slayer finds herself struggling not only to survive, but to understand what purpose a savior has in a world lost.
(The House on the Mouth of Hell) Shortly after the Hemery High School gym is burned down, Joyce Summers dies unexpectedly from a brain tumor. And custody goes to the biological father.
The Order of the Phoenix wants allies. The Council wants answers. The Ministry wants them both to stop rocking the boat. So what does Willow want? Mostly to make it through all of this alive. WR/SS
Response to challenge by Clandestine. Buffy / Angel pairing (early in the relationship) Based on episode 12 "Prophecy Girl" with some references to the X-Men movie and comics.
After the fall of Sunnydale Buffy and Dawn move to Gotham. And Buffy starts wearing tights...
Trapped by an alien collector, Lieutenant Commander Data discovers an early 21st century android excavated from the ruins of Sunnydale and a capsule containing the frozen body of one of the Eugenic wars most notorious figures...Buffy Summers.
