hear me out: a cutthroat kitchen-type contest for fanfic writers. contestants are given a different trope to write each round. sabotages include making an opponent write in first person, requiring them to write in a particular AU, making them incorporate the opening structure of my immortal. alton brown looks over your shoulder while you write the smut.

Oh, god.


A grab bag of horrible euphemisms are on the table, you bid for the privilege of being the only author allowed to use “cock”

  • You only get to use the character’s names and/or their pronouns once for every 1000 words. Beyond that, you must say “the taller one,” “the detective,” etc.
  • [fifteen seconds before you’re eliminated] “So this is a, sort of a, rustic, deconstructed high school bodyswap fake relationship fic…”
  • “I was so psyched to write my Fuck Or Die fic! I immediately picked up symbolic flowers, a prostate massager, and the dog they would adopt together…and then I realized – I totally forgot the aliens to make them do it.”
  • The most brutally sabotaged contestant ends up writing something so bad it becomes the most famous fic in all of fandom, forever. No one remembers who actually won the contest.

Okay seriously but this could be so much fun? Like we make up a list of horrible cliches or tropes and randomly assign 2-3 to each person and make them write a Cherik fic like:

– coffee shop au + no romance + PWP where you can’t use the words ‘cock’ or ‘ass’
– fake relationship + aliens + mutant politics + Great British Bake Off
– mermaid au + easily resolved misunderstanding trope + only one use of character name and then descriptors for the rest of the fic (’the telepath’, ‘the taller one’)
– mob au + Erik spelled ‘Eric’ + mpreg where someone is called ‘Mom’
– min. ten mentions of Charles’ eyes being super blue + serial killer au + overly purple prose 

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS *said in a tone of someone savoring a true DELIGHT*

omg, i SERIOUSLY WANT THIS. This kind of writing challenge is right up my alley – a list of things to include/avoid and LET ER RIP.
