Ficathon Reminder

Hello hello.

First off, thanks to all of you who have submitted fics to the ficathon so far. It's going great. So great, in fact, that we've decided to extend the deadline by one week, meaning that fics can now be submitted at the challenge post through Tuesday, December 4 at 11:59 PM EST.

This should give all of us time to recover from the holiday and get our scrubs_smutmas fics in.

That said, keep the fics rolling!


Fic Time!

Ok, so we've compiled the prompts a bit early. They are below the cut. Before you take a gander at all the awesomeness, though, take a look at these nifty instructions:

-Pick a prompt (any prompt, even your own) and write fic/make a video/make a graphic! No minimum length. No minimum rating.

-When you're all ready to release your abomination upon the world, post it in the comments section of this entry. Format the subject like like this: Title, Prompt you're responding to (i.e. pairing, word/phrase).

-If your fic exceeds 4,300 characters, post it in your journal and comment with the link.

-Feel free to post the results of your hideous labors anywhere. Just link back here, please.

-Don't worry about repeating prompts. More than one take on the same pairing/phrase is great.

-You have until 11:59 EST on Tuesday, November 27 to post your fic!

the horror, the horror!Collapse )

Fun was had by all when it came to prompts. So let's get the fic coming!


Reminder: Prompts Due

Hi All!

One of your friendly neighborhood mods here reminding you that your prompts are due by 11:59pm EST tomorrow night. Post those last minute badwrong ideas here by then if you want to see your favorite abomination honored with fic :)


Prompt Post!


Welcome to the first ever Bad Wrong Scrubsathon! Have you ever thought of a totally cracktastic pairing and wished someone would write it, even if it was just in a humor fic? Ever come up with a pairing you were convinced would be horrible and then find yourself wondering if anyone could make it work (or at least explore it in a way that seemed convincing)? If so, this is the challenge for you.

Here's how it works:

- You have until 11:59pm EST next Sunday, November 11 to comment on this post with requests/prompts relating to the totally wrong pairings/OT3+'s that you'd like to see written.
- We will collect the prompts and post the complete list by the end of the day on Tuesday, November 13.
- You'll have two weeks from that date (i.e. until Tuesday, November 27) to post fics, videos, manipulations, or fanart based on any of the prompts. You may answer as many prompts as you like, and there is no limit to how many times a particular prompt may be answered.
-All fics/videos/fanart should be posted in the comment section of the prompts post, meaning that they should be under 4,300 characters.

What types of prompts can I post?
-Canon pairings are not allowed, no matter how wrong and painful they may be.
-Pairings that are extremely common in the Scrubs fandom are not allowed. That means no JD/Cox, Elliot/Jordan, JD/Turk, or JD/Janitor.
-The kids are off-limits unless it's a future fic. In other words, if you're planning on writing anything of the sexy variety, the characters need to be at least 18 years old.
-No bestiality.
-Other than that, all non-canon het, slash, or femslash pairings/OT3s are fine, provided that they are suitably cringe-worthy.

How do I post prompts?
-All prompts should be posted in the following format: Character/Character, prompt word or phrase (e.g. Janitor/Kelso, sponge, or Janitor/Randal, sock)
-Please try to write your pairings so that the character whose name comes first alphabetically is listed first (e.g., Franklin/JD instead of JD/Franklin).
-Please only post one pairing and prompt per line; there is no limit to how many you can post.

**Guidelines for fics will be posted with the list of prompts. None of them should be particularly surprising.**

Please Note: There is no hard and fast rule for qualifying something as a bad, wrong pairing. It can consist of anything from characters you really don't want to picture having sex to characters you think are totally incompatible to characters that have barely interacted and are just a weird choice to put together. That means that it's a subjective standard. Something someone else considers a god awful pairing might be your OTP. It happens. If it does, either suck it up or write a damn good fic that you think will make others see the light. Do NOT post a rant or attack your fellow fans for their choice. This is not a ship war. This is an activity that we hope will get the characters whose relationships are not frequently explored some love. Have fun with it.

That being said, comment with prompts!
