Sticky Post + Welcome + Application

SOOOO, I did a boo-boo, as I'm prone to do, and deleted the original welcome/sticky/application post, which, if I do say so myself, was epically awesome. 



It is now lost into the ether of hyperspace, never to return, I'm afraid. 

BUT. womenverse is still 100% awesome, yeah? And I know new folks might like to get in on it. So, suffice it to say, womenverse is a landcomm dedicated to celebrating all girl/women characters in fandom, in books, video games, television shows, movies, comics, what have you. All challenges are women-centric, and all fanworks produced focus on the women of fandom. That doesn't mean works can't include men, or that works have to be femslash or not shippy, but it does mean women characters are at the center, and they're always respected. No hate, no bashing. Just friendly competition. 

We have three teams, Combat Boots, Flip-Flops, and Stilettos. And they're all awesome : ) We are currently toward the end of our second phase, but anyone can join at any time! 

So if you'd like to join, please copy/paste the below form into a comment:

The Post

Hi there!

This is The Post! The post in which we are saying that we will hereby close womenverse and probably not reopen it. We hope you all had an awesome time in this landcomm, we certainly did, and hope that we all will continue making awesome things for our favourite women at other landcomms, such as gameofcards, or future landcomms.

We wish you all the best and thanks for participating (for eight rounds, wow, how awesome is that!) in the celebration of women, which, like I said, will hopefully continue in other landcomms (it definitely will from our side :D).

This was a PSA from your headmods dance_the_dance (who's sitting next to me :D) and me.

Challenge #5

Crossover Conversations
(closes 5 October 2014 at 3 pm GMT)


Challenge:

- Choose any female character(s) and post comments that the character would post if she had lj. Reply to other people's threads with the things that your character(s) would have to say.

- Sign every comment with [character - fandom]. If you're in a longer conversation it's enough to sign it with [character].

- Post all the entries outside of the team threads (as new comments or replies to other people's comments).

- The team threads are for you to link your comments after you post them. You will NOT get points for anything you don't link.

To get the link to your comment, click "(Link)", which is in every comment right next to your icon. If you can't find it or have any other issue with it, please tell me.

- Feel free to keep adding the links to comments as you post them, and edit/delete/repost the comment with links as many times as you want (before the deadline). Of course if you make more than 20 comments, you only need to link 20.

Rules/Guidelines:

- This is not regular role-playing! You don't describe what your characters are doing, or come up with things for them to do with each other. This challenge is like a spam post for all female characters, who sit on their computers right now (even if in canon they have never seen a computer) and talk to each other on lj. :D

- When it comes to topics, ANYTHING GOES. It can be completely cracky, or serious, or canon, or AU... (If it's something R-rated or triggering, please post a warning.) You can ask questions for other characters to answer, or you can just ramble/squee/rant/etc.

- You can play as many characters as you want! You can choose one character to play for the whole challenge, or you can play multiple ones. You can even play a different character in each of your comments. :) You don't have to claim characters anywhere. (Which means that it's totally okay if multiple people play the same one.) Just remember to sign your comments with the character's name every time!

- If two other characters are talking to each other and your character has something to add, always feel free to butt-in. :D

- The comments can be as short as you want. They can also be as long as you want, but they're supposed to be lj conversations, NOT fics or scenarios, so they're going to be mostly short. If it's a reply, it can even be just a gif, without any text. Just remember to sign every comment with the character's name, even if the gif is of the character. (Gifs don't have to be of the characters, you can also use reaction gifs that your characters would use.)

- Example: This is what this challenge looks like in practice. It was almost 2 years ago, we can repeat it. :D

Points:

5 points per comment (it doesn't matter if it's a new comment or a reply to someone else's comment). Up to 20 comments for points (100 points), but you're more than welcome to keep playing after you get full points. :)

+ 1 point for using a sig tag in the comment with links which you post in your team thread. Don't use sig tags in the actual entries.

- Post all the entries outside of the team threads (as new comments or replies to other people's comments). The team threads are for you to link your comments after you post them. You MUST link your comments in your team thread to get points! (Since the comments are supposed to be short, I imagine there can be A LOT of them and it would be easy to miss people who have only made a few.)

Feel free to keep adding the comments as you post them, and edit/delete/repost the comment with links as many times as you want (before the deadline). Of course if you make more than 20 comments, you only need to link 20.

- To get the link to your comment, click "(Link)", which is in every comment right next to your icon. If you can't find it or have any other issue with it, please tell me, and I will make a screenshot/tutorial.

- Example: [click]

"MY PET DIREWOLF, LET ME SHOW YOU HER.


[Arya Stark - Game of Thrones]"


And, for example, your characters could reply to that comment with pictures of their pets, or their werewolf-selves, or even with "pfff, whatever, I prefer cats" if that's what in-character for your character.


Points:

5 points per comment (it doesn't matter if it's a new comment or a reply to someone else's comment). Up to 20 comments for points (100 points), but you're more than welcome to keep playing after you get full points. :)
