The Seven Sins/Seven Virtues Challenge

This time around, we're looking for fic based on the medieval Christian concept of the Seven Sins and the corresponding Seven Virtues. You may write something based on one virtue or sin, or something incoporating all seven of sins or virtues, or, if you're feeling ambitious, something that manages to use all fourteen concepts.

I'm listing the current Catholic sins and virtues, however, if you want to use one of the older sins or virtues, feel free.

Sins/Virtues:

Lust/Chastity
Sloth/Diligence
Greed/Charity
Gluttony/Temperance
Wrath/Patience
Envy/Kindness
Pride/Humility

The Seven Deadly Sins at Wiklipedia
The Seven Virtues at Wikipedia

Any questions? Ask 'em here! :)

You have until August 30.

The Fusion Challenge

So what if the entire TNG crew was at Hogwarts? Or what if Kira Nerys was a Slayer? How about Kirk, Spock, Sulu and Uhura as a 'gate team with the SGC?

Conversely, what if Sam and Dean were the Enterprise's beta shift pilot and navigator? What kind of adventures could Captain John Sheppard, First Officer McKay and the rest of the crew of the USS Atlantis get up to?

A fusion is not a crossover, so this isn't about John and Rodney suddenly finding themselves on the Enterprise D, or Kirk and Spock needing Sam and Dean's help to get back to their own universe. This is about either Trek Characters always having been in another fandom's universe, or charcters from another fandom always having been in any of the Trek universes.

Any questions? Ask 'em here! :)

You have until August 9.

The Five Things Challenge

So, Five Things fic...you all know the drill, right? You write a set of five pieces of any length that fit a theme. What that theme is, well, that's up to you, as is the genre. So whether you want to write "Four Times Jim Kirk Didn't Have Sex With Farm Animals (and the One Time He Did)" or "Five Holidays Observed on the USS Voyager" or any other five things fic, this is the place for it! You can also do 5 + 1 if you like; for example: Five Times Spock Didn't Show Favoritism Towards Uhura (and the One Time He Did).

Because we extended the last challenge, you'll have a few extra days to write for this one. The deadline is Sunday, July 26.

The Family Challenge

Family can mean a lot of things, from a small nuclear family to a vast clan, from the family you were born into to the one you and friends make for yourselves. This is the place to explore what family means in the Star Trek universe and to the Star Trek characters.

You have until July 5. :)

In an attempt to be organized, we're tagging posts. When you post a fic, please use the tag for that challenge and your author tag, if there is one. If there isn't an author tag for you, hang tight; we'll be adding one.

For example, if [personal profile] helens78 were to post a Mirror 'Verse story, she'd tag it: author: helens78, challenge: mirror verse.

Ah, the Star Trek Mirror 'Verse, the Mother of All AUs. It started with the TOS episode "Mirror, Mirror" and continued in episodes in other Trek series and in novels and comics. This is the place for stories set in the Mirror 'Verse, or for stories about characters from "our" universe ending up in the Mirror 'Verse, or Mirror 'Verse character showing up in "our" universe. Basically, if it's connected to the Mirror 'Verse in some way, it's fair game for this challenge.

Any iteration of the Mirror 'Verse is allowed, so if you have something based on the non-canonical, but still totally awesome, TNG Mirror 'Verse as presented in Diane Duane's Dark Mirror, go for it. (Please!) Likewise, although Voyager never had a Mirror 'Verse ep, feel free to make one up.

Resources:

Mirror Mirror -- "Mirror, Mirror" on CBS.com

Memory Alpha's Mirror Universe article -- includes links to recaps of the various canonical Mirror 'Verse episodes as well as a section on Apocrypha and links information about the various novels, comics and other non/secondary canon appearances of the Mirror 'Verse.

Just reminding you that our first challenge--Academy Days (and Nights)--will close sometime Sunday evening.

Because everyone had to start somewhere and because this is a brand new comm, our first challenge is "Academy Days (and Nights)." We want this to be as broad as possible, so anything connected with Starfleet Academy goes, whether it's about cadets, teachers or cadets and teachers.

[personal profile] eleanorjane has some useful information about Starfleet Academy here.

Memory Alpha is an incredible resource; their page on the Academy is here.

Because this is the first challenge on a new comm on a newish site, we're giving you a little extra time. The challenge will run from now until Sunday, June 7.

Please note: this is not a comment fic comm. Anyone who joins the comm has posting access, so post your fic to the comm unless it's too long to fit in one post, in which case you can post it to your own journal and link back to the comm. The rest of the rules can be found in the user info or here.

This community is modeled somewhat on [community profile] sga_flashfic which in turn was modeled on DS Flashfiction over on LJ. We thank the mods of both comms for inspiring us.

Star Trek Flashfic welcomes all flavors of Star Trek--TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT; reboot, prime, and in-universe AUs such as the Mirror universe; the Animated series; and works based on the novels and comics are all welcome! Crossovers and non-canon AUs are welcome as well.

All genres and ratings of fan fiction are welcome as long as they fit the challenge in some way. Some challenges will be geared toward TrekSmut, but most will work for gen as well. Although this is primarily a story comm, we do welcome both art and vids as long as they match the challenge somehow.

Challenges will be posted every two weeks on Sunday evening, at which time the previous challenge will be closed. You will then have two weeks to write something for the new challenge and post it to the comm. During the period of the challenge, we ask that you only post your stories to [community profile] star_trek_flashfic. After the mods close the challenge, you are, of course, free to post the story wherever you like. If the challenge deadline is looming and you're sure you could get your fic done if you had just a little more time, you can request an extension of the challenge.

Please feel free to suggest challenges here here!

Stories will be archived in the tags section by challenge name. Please use a cut tag; pairings, warnings, and other information is appreciated but not required. If you are writing about the Original Trek characters, please indicate somewhere in your header whether you're writing TOS or Reboot.

Stories of any length are welcome; however, if your story is too long to fit in one post, please post it on your own journal and then link back to it on the comm.

If you have questions, feel free to ask here!

Your mods are [personal profile] helens78 and [personal profile] telesilla.

We've already got quite the list of challenge ideas for the comm, but we'd love to see what people come up with because it's entirely possible that we've totally missed something obvious and very cool!

So this is the place to leave a challenge idea. Please remember that this is a comm for every flavor of Trek and one that welcomes both gen and TrekSmut, so try to make your challenge ideas as inclusive as you can.
