the points spreadsheet, if you want to double-check my math.
OK. Both I suck, and Time Warner Cable sucks for leaving me without internet for most of the day. Anyway.
For May 8, the challenge is to make an icon or banner for an XF fic. The fic doesn't need to be posted on Dreamwidth, but your icon or banner should. It doesn't have to be a fic of your own, or have to have been posted on Dreamwidth.
For May 9th, the challenge is to play in a game of XF Fight Club. (I have cribbed this game, in altered format, from the LJ community rememberlaura; all props go to icedteainthebag for inventing it, or at least putting it into my field of vision. Check it out as they play it here.)
Here's how to play:
1. Post a comment initiating a fight. Basically, you should propose two (or more) characters, episodes, scenarios, props, or other nouns-of-some-sort from the series that you want to have duke it out for victory, and also specify the category. Such as:
Freakiest Mutant: Flukeman vs. The Manbat
Liquid You Would Least Like To Encounter: Black Oil Vs. Scary Green Alien Blood Vs. Monkey Pee
Most Inappropriate-Yet-Hot Kiss: The Red And The Black Vs. The Truth
2. Comment on threads supporting your preferred position. As icedteainthebag says, "Propaganda, vote rigging, bitching, infighting, slurs, anger, mudslinging, macros, and polite discussion are welcome." (Let's try to have two basic principles: 1) Do not actually insult your fellow players, and 2) Assume that things being said are being said in good humor. Let's try not to create a wankstorm.)
3. In tomorrow's post, I will announce THE WINNERS based on number of comments on each side.
4. Points: you get 3 points for initiating a fight, 2 points per comment contributing to it, and, as always, you max out at 10 points.
The game will end...well, when I post the tallies tomorrow, so around 24 hours from now. Assuming the cable gods are with me. *shakes fist*
