Sharknado your faves or create your own hybrid force of nature. The choice is yours, and a Sharknado POP Vinyl figurine could be, too.
Sharknado 4 will be released during the summer of 2016. Your moderators saw the news and thought: why stop there?
There are two avenues of participation in this challenge: Sharknado Your Faves or It's Hailing Llamas. In the first, you bring the tried and true Sharknado to your favorite characters or world. In the second, you create your own mind-numbingly amazing force of nature and apply it at will.
Stories must be at least 1500 words. The challenge runs from 15 April 2016 to 30 June 2016. You have that long to complete and submit your story to the appropriate collection in order to be considered for the drawing.
Every story submitted will be counted as one entry into the drawing. Two winners will be chosen at random the end of the entry period. Multiple entries are allowed; if you want to Sharknado every fandom you've ever been in, we salute and welcome you, friend.
Feel free to use this post as a place to brainstorm or chat about your stories, or to throw out ideas for others who might want to run with them. Go forth and Sharknado! Or Tarantusoon. Or Zombcano... you get the point.
it's that time of year again! well, it's almost that time of year again. it's getting close. but i like getting a jump start on my holiday cards, so i'm putting this up now. if you'd like a holiday card - or a general "happy winter" card - then fill out the google form. (why google form? because i cannot lose a google form. i have lost addresses in the past and it makes everyone involved sad. help me, google.)
we do not have to know each other well for me to send you a card. we don't have to talk a lot. we don't have to be mutual followers. you don't have to follow me at all - heck, go ahead and signal boost this, because i'm 100% fine with sending cards to total strangers. i just really like sending cards, okay.
if i have sent you a card before: please give me your address again! i cannot find my holiday cards address book. i'm assuming the move ate it. i do not have a single address, so please fill out the form!
and, last but not least, i love getting cards, too. if you're sending out holiday cards, i'd love to get one, so please let me know :) also, if you have sent me one in the past and would like to do so again, i will be the happiest - but ask me for my address, because i moved, so cards going to the old address sit in my mother's kitchen for two months until she remembers to give them to me.
Title: The Next Food Network Star Author: somehowunbroken Fandom: DCU Characters: Tim Drake, Jason Todd, Dick Grayson Word Count: 1,531 Rating: PG Warnings: none Notes: Dedicated to everyone who saw my tumblr post begging for someone to stop me from writing this and ignored it and/or laughed at my plight, but especially redundantthinking and ephemeraltea, who outright encouraged it. Summary: "I hate him."
Dick snorts from his seat on the sofa. "You can't hate him, Jay, you've never even met him."
"I can and I do," Jason insists, slapping the magazine he's been holding down onto the counter. "Food & Wine thinks he's better than me! Look!"
Hey, so, I send out holiday cards every year. I love doing it, I don't expect anything back in return, and I want to send you one. Yes, you. Whoever you are. We don't have to be mutuals, you don't have to follow me at all. We might never have even spoken. You might be browsing tags at random and just chance upon this. I just enjoy sending cards out, so if you're seeing this, chances are 100% good that I want to send you a card!
I'll send anywhere in the world, so don't shy away on that account. I default to Christmas cards, but if you'd prefer a Hanukkah card, or a generic "happy holidays" or "nice winter we're having here" card, or something else, that's totally fine. Just let me know.
If you want a card, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to send me a card too (TOTALLY NOT REQUIRED), let me know in the email and I'll send you my address. I'm US-based, so if you want to send me a card, keep that in mind :)
HOLIDAYS, THEY ARE UPON US, I AM THRILLED. Let me send you a card to celebrate. :D

Hi! Thanks so much for writing for me - I'm excited to see what you come up with :)
Things I like: pretty much all of the really tropey tropes, but especially the fake dating/fake married one. Found families. Slice of Life. I love angst and happy fic equally. I like kidfic if that's the direction you want to go but it's by no means required. I love AUs and canon-compliant fic equally. Pretty much if it's not a dislike it's something I'll enjoy. Dislikes: noncon/dubcon (if you're not sure if what you're writing is non or dubcon, please skip it). Power play within relationships. There are a few fandom-specific ones that I'll talk about below.
Request 1: Batgirl (Comics) Renee Montoya, Kate Kane, Cassandra Cain
I would love fic about any of these ladies! mMy dream come true for this fandom would be to have Kate/Renee and Cass talking to them (about relationships? about crimefighting? WHO KNOWS) but anything you want to do involving any combination of these three (or just one of them!) would be amazing. I'd also love fic about any combination of these ladies, or a piece about any of them on their own. Please don't include Joker-related stuff, even as a mention.
Request 2: Captain America (Comics) Sarah Rogers
Sarah. Sarah and her baby, Sarah and her job, Sarah and anything. There needs to be more Sarah Rogers fic in the world. I am totally okay with you breaking my heart if that's how the spirit moves you, but I'd also love happy stuff with them. Anything Sarah, basically.
Request 3: Demon Knights OH GOD anything. Anything. If you write me something Demon Knights related I will be so happy. I love everything about this comic. I love all of the characters, any ship you can come up with, any storyline. Gen is great too. If you want to write about one of the characters that wasn't listed in the tags here I'm totally fine with that too.
Request 4: Rat Queens Anything. Adventuring, hanging out in town, shipping, gen, anything. Rat Queens, okay, that's it. I love Dee and Hannah the best, but it's only by a very little bit. Sawyer is also excellent. And the Daves. Gary as comic relief is great too. Like I said, anything goes here.
Request 5: X-Factor (Comics) Shatterstar, Julio Richter These two. Just. Please. I love them, okay, and their whole entire team. I would love a glimpse at them at any point, or an exploration of what they're doing after the end of volume 3, or an AU, or anything. They're really great.
Request 6: Forever (TV) Henry Morgan, Abraham, Abigail
I really, really want something that explores their familial relationship and how it has evolved over time. I know that could get long and involved, so if you'd rather just do something shorter, that's fine too! I'd also love something that looks into the past, so a snapshot of Abe growing up would be fun too.
If you're struck by some sort of idea that doesn't really fit with what I blabbed about, that's totally fine! Those are just ideas in case you want somewhere to work from. If you have something in mind for one of the fandoms, I'm sure I'll love it as long as it doesn't fall into the dislikes category. Thanks so much for writing for me, and happy Yuletide to you!
Title:Hellfire Author name: taichara Beta name: eliyes Characters: Inferno, Saturn Girl, Computo, Cosmic Boy, Lothar St. Maixent, others Fandom/Universe: Legionnaires (SW6 Legion of Super-Heroes) Rating: PG-13 Word count: 11, 210 Warnings: Author chooses not to use warnings Summary: The people of New Earth are still trying to pick up the pieces after the planet's destruction; even with the aid of the Legionnaires, it's been rough going, between the hijacking of desperately-needed convoys, the need for reconstruction, and the lingering aftereffects of the Dominator control of Earthgov.
When people are placed under stress, they tend to lash out -- and when one of the Legionnaires is the young image of a man seen as having sold out the people of Earth to the Dominion forces, he makes a convenient scapegoat.
Title: ghosts in the rearview Author: somehowunbroken Fandom: MCU Characters: Howard Stark, Maria Stark, Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers Word Count: 1.896 Rating: PG-13 Warnings: major character death Notes: Written for a prompt that was floating around tumblr by midnighttypewriter. Thanks to queercap for enabling and for reading it through. You're a star <3 Summary: Howard brought his ghosts home with him. They're not real, he knows, except for when they are.
Title: Cards Against Certain Avengers Author: somehowunbroken Fandom: MCU Characters: Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Bruce Banner, Natasha Romanov, Tony Stark Word Count: 2,210 Rating: PG-13 Notes: Written for a prompt that was floating around tumblr by bonzai-bunny. Thanks to queercap and the-lost-amazing-city on tumblr for enabling the hell out of this, and to ariadne83 for beta reading all of my crack. Summary: Cards Against Humanity is not a good game to play with the Avengers, just not for the reasons that Clint was expecting.
Title: read between the lines Author: somehowunbroken Fandom: DCU Characters: Tim Drake, Dick Grayson (Tim/Cullen in the background) Word Count: 2,201 Rating: PG Notes: Written for queer_fest 2014: DC Comics, Tim Drake, he's bisexual and at no point was he ever really in the closet. Is it his fault everyone just assumed? Thanks to defcontwo for the prompt and to ariadne83 for beta work. Summary: It's not like Tim was hiding. Dick just chose not to see, and now Tim has to deal with the fallout before coffee.
