"Canon Character Spotlight Challenge" by RedwoodAlChan
Categories: Anime & Manga, Books, Cartoons & Comics, Gaming, Movies & TV, Poetry & Song
Description: This contest is simple: write a fanfic starring already-existing canon characters--and ONLY already-existing canon characters.
The rules are as follows:
1. The main protagonist of the fanfic MUST be a canon character.
2. Any secondary protagonists (i.e., the best friend, love interest, etc.) MUST be canon characters.
3. As much as possible, more minor roles (i.e., former love interest, mentor, etc) as well as roles occupied by antagonists should be taken by canon characters. If that is not feasible, then an OC can do the job; however, said OC MUST NOT divert attention away from the canon characters (admittedly, an OC villain may get people's attention because villains do that, but you must do nothing to force this).
4. NO Real Person Fic allowed
5. Most genres will be accepted, as long as the canon character can be made to star in it. For further qualifications, see below:
5a. ABSOLUTELY NO PORN!
5b. CYOA's are allowed, but the POV character must be a canon character.
5c. Slash fic of any kind is a valid option, but is not encouraged.
6. Story length should be limited to 10 chapters max.
This challenge will run for one year, starting today (2/15/12).
