When hot summer days flee from the chill of autumn, when the nights grow longer and the moon shines cold and bright, the veil between worlds lifts to reveal:
You should sign up right now!
Why, you may ask?
Because everyone loves spooky stories, and Halloween is the best time of year for reading stories that offer pulse pounding thrills, blood curdling dread and hair-raising horror.
Bwah hah hah hah hah hah.....
Besides, what kind of Challenge could be more appropriate for a fandom like Buffy the Vampire Slayer? And as a loyal minion of both Spike and Xander, this was the first Buffy Community I thought of to pimp this Ficathon to! Okay, so I'll admit, the fic doesn't have to be slash, but in my opinion, there's no story that can't be improved by a little slash, and there can never be too much Spander, so I hope you'll join us for spook_me ! this year.
All fandoms are welcome. Stories can be Gen, Het or Slash. All ratings are accepted. And, yes, you may write RPF if the mood strikes you.
Don't worry, if you'd rather write humor or smut or suspense - we're cool, write whatever you want around at least one of the promps we send you, and we'll be happy! We're just here for the fic, after all.
The prompts are based on movie titles from old '60s horror and sci-fi movies and the Creatures you find in those movies. (You do not have to watch the movies! The titles are for inspiration only.) And you can either choose your own horror Creature from our list, or let us choose a creature for you.
So please join us! (You know you want to!)
(Please feel free to use this post to pimp the challenge to other ljs and fandoms, if you like. The more the merrier!)
Many thanks to Darkhavens for allowing this post!
