Our 6-month anniversary is coming up in a few weeks (August 17) -- so we're going to use that as a finish line for YOU GUYS helping auntmo9 and me keep the comm rockin' and rolling over the summer! Here's how it goes:
1) You'll sign up for a team: Team Dean or Team Sam.
2) Beginning this Wednesday, July 11, at 9:00 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) (SPN's new timeslot for S8!), you and your fellow team members will post your brains out!
3) Each of your contributions should be in a separate post. They can be any of the following: your own fic or art; a rec for someone else's fic or art; an episode review; a picspam; meta on some aspect of your "Team Captain" (Dean or Sam); a chain of drabbles; or ... anything else you can come up with! Let your imagination run wild. :)
4) A reminder: any contribution has to be focused on your Team Captain, and should reflect the spirit of the comm.
5) Finish line is Friday, August 17, at 11:22 p.m. EDT. (11:22 p.m. was the time of our first comm post.)
Each post is worth 5 points. The team that's tallied up the most points at the end of the challenge wins a copy (for each participating member) of the upcoming SPN tie-in novel Rite of Passage by John Passarella, and a donation of $50 in the team's name to the charity of their choice. (The winning charity will be selected by votes among the team members.) If you can top 250 points, we'll make it a $100 donation.
Need some bonus points? You'll score 5 points for each new comm member you recruit -- all they need to do is PM me and say, "So-and-so sent me."
Sound good? Then go for it! Sign up, and let the games begin!
Update: \O/ The responses!! As of 5:00 pm, we've got 11 members for Team Dean and 6 for Team Sam. You guys (bless your lil' hearts) are all over this, so I'm going to cap the competition at 15 members for each team. Sam fans -- it's true Team Sam whipped Team Dean's butts during the drabble challenge even though they had fewer members -- but things are *very* lopsided here! Are you gonna abandon the title before the game even begins? Show that Sammy Spirit and sign up!
Update #2: Monday evening - We're at 12 members for Team Sam and 11 members for Team Dean. There's room for a few more, so if you've been debating signing up, go for it!
