Project: Title by Author (Fandom)
House: Pick your challenge word count from the list above!

Example:

Project: Patient Zero by Keira Marcos (Stargate: Atlantis)
House: Hufflepuff

Q. Why have different levels?
A. Because it’s fun.

Q. Can I use a work in progress?
A. No.

Q. Can I use my Rough Trade project for the Quantum Bang?
A. No. Your bang fic is supposed to be a secret, dude!

Q. What does “mutant” mean in relation to the challenge?
A.  Someone who is at least half-human who has extra-human abilities derived from their own genetics or some post-birth event such as experimentation or exposure.

Q. Can you give me examples of what does and does not qualify as “mutant” for the challenge?
A. We created a list of mutations/powers that we feel keeps the challenge broad and fair for participants. Obviously, not everything is included here so if you have questions regarding a specific topic that isn’t covered, please feel free to comment. We made the decision to exclude paranormal and magical creatures for simplicity’s sake. It’s not up for debate.

Qualifies: X-Men type mutations, experimental science, technological, or chemical exposure leading to mutation, zombies, psychic powers (telepathy, psychometry, teleportation, telekinesis, precognition & clairvoyance etc), Sentinels/Guides, half-alien, & demigods.

Doesn’t Qualify: werewolves, vampires, alien, fey, witches/wizards, angels, demons, ghosts, magical realism, A/B/O AUs, & gods.

Q. Can I start engaging in the challenge in the last week of the month like a total twat?
A. No, because I will have deleted your ass on Day 14 of the challenge if you haven’t posted at least once. I mean it and I’m not going to waste my precious, immensely valuable time emailing you about it either.

Q. Can I write a sequel to another story?
A. Yes, but it should stand on its own.

Q. Can the story be part of a larger arc?
A. As long as the story stands on its own as a complete work, yes.

Q. Do I have to post daily?
A. No, but no less than 3 times a week during the course of the challenge.

Q. Can I post more than once a day?
A. No.

Q. Is there a minimum post length?
A. 1,000 words

Q. Do I need to finish by 11/30 or can I keep working on my project after the challenge is finished?
A. If you fail to meet the deadline then you’ve not completed the challenge. I may or may not allow posting after the challenge ends.

Q. Is there a limit to title length?
A. No, but don’t be fucking ridiculous either.
