|rachel500||08:53 pm - Women of the Gate - 12 in 12 Challenge - Open for Sign-Ups|
Welcome to the 12 in 12 Challenge!
The results of the What Next poll definitely suggested the 12 in 12 Challenge was very much wanted! The challenge is simple: sign-up to deliver 12 posts in 2012 to the Women of the Gate community. The individual posts can link to any kind of fanart (fanfics, podfic, vids, art, etc.), recommendations of fanart, or meta.
You can have 12 posts all related to fanfic or 12 posts all linking to something different; highlight one character or explore more than one! The only rule is that the posts must feature female characters of Stargate!
Signing up is easy - read the rules below and simply comment to this post confirming you're taking part!
A few rules:
a) Can be any length (if posting longer than 5000 words, it's suggested you post to your own LJ/archive and simply post the link).
b) They must feature a female Stargate character as a primary character/Point Of View. C
c) Crossovers between Stargate shows are allowed. Crossovers between Stargate and non-Stargate shows is allowed for this challenge only.
d) GEN/friendship fanfic is encouraged but slash/ship is allowed, just ensure that the pairing is clear in the header information you provide.
e) No bashing of any character whether male or female is allowed.
f) Be generous with warnings for triggery content (violence, rape, physical/mental illness, etc.)
g) Links to fanfics/podfics entered in other LJ challenges such as big bangs, five-things, alphabet soups, etc., can be posted here too (on the assumption that the mods on those challenges have given the OK for authors to reveal their fics/post their fics elsewhere other than the challenge community).
2) Fanart of any kind is very welcome in whatever format/size. Please post to your own LJ/website and link here. Pairings must be stated in header information. Be generous with warnings for triggery content.
3) Meta exploring the female characters in Stargate is welcome. This can be anything from exploring the evolution of a character through a show (or shows in the case of Sam), their usage compared to male characters, whether they are considered feminist icons or whether the writers/producers failed to highlight the female characters, etc. Wider meta on sci-fi female characters or female characters in television generally will be acceptable IF the Stargate characters feature heavily.
Typical Header information:
Pairings (if any)
Any questions, please comment below or send me a message. An Open Challenge will also be held for fanart/fanfic later in the year (dates to be confirmed).
Is this 12 posts in 12 months, like last year you did 11 posts in 11 months? If so, consider me signed up!
Effectively 12 in 2012 so still 11 months rather than 12 but it's only 1 extra tiny post :)
12 in 11 months... that's doable! :)

I'm all over it like white on rice. Sign me up, please!
I managed in '11, I can try it in '12. :)
I may have failed last year... you know... so maybe this year is the charm? Right? Um... yeah. :)
I'm going to try again. Please sign me up!
I hope this year's the charm as I also, alas, failed last year. :)
Welcome! Good to have on board. You need any help just shout out. :)
I would like to sing up :)
I think I may be a little late to the party, but it took me a while to get things sorted on my new blog.
I have a question regarding the posting though.
Can I put a link to something on my blog thats on another site - blogspot? Or do I copy and pate the material here? I have a Carter meta piece that at the moment is 2 and a half chapets long! Should be around 5 or 6 chapters at 1500 - 2500 words long each when I'm done. I'm posting them on my blog first, but I'd like to post it here too.
I intended to finish the meta last year to go on here, and it didn't work out that way but I did like the writing so much this time round that I thought its worth continuing the writing into something more, hence the blog idea.
Welcome! You can post to your own blog and just link back. :)
Hiya, forgot to do the actual replying and signing! Signing up!

I have no idea how many items I submitted for this challenge. I don't know how to check on it, either. I hope I had enough - if not I'll try to keep better track of things next year.
