The Fag Ends Halloween Challenge 2016

Our old nemesis Mortifex is back! It took the wily old necromancer a while, but he has crawled his way out of hell and has set up again in his ruined gothic castle to brew up his revenge.

The problem is, as a mean, nasty wizard who never respects the dead, he’s terrible employer. His bats complain that they have to circle the turrets all night and all day, the spiders have to spin their webs 24-7 without any tea breaks and even the monster in the moat grumbles that he hasn’t been fed in weeks. What a swine Mortifex is.

Faced with the endless thunderstorms Mortifex creates, the maelstroms that dump gallons upon gallons of hammering rain on the top of the ramparts, the gargoyles have had enough of removing that much water with no gratitude from their boss! They don’t care if Mortifex exacts his brutal revenge on the lands around, but they are not going to stand for the lightning strikes that chip away at their stonework without proper maintenance anymore.

So to fight for better conditions, some of the gargoyles have formed a trade union (Gargoyles Unite) and they hope to recruit the rest of their number, along with the other grotesques that decorate the castle walls for their strike.

You can help! The prompts will be posted in a following post and are all titles from the Gargoyles TV show (of course). Discuss, write, design and create from any of the prompts to collect drips of water to motivate the other Gargoyles to join up. Collect 20 drips and a gargoyle will join the picket at the castle gates. Keep recruiting and the one who collected the most by 8pm GMT, 30th October 2016 will win a small prize.

But there is a twist! Different types of creations equal different amounts of drips:

  • You Tube Playlist* - 5 drips

  • Meta (approx. 500 words) – 7 drips

  • Meta (501 to 1000 words) – 13 drips

  • Icon – 1 drip**

  • Drabble (100 words) – 5 drips

  • Fic (101 to 500 words) 10 drips

  • Fic (501 to 1000 words) 13 drips

  • Vid – 15 drips

  • Wallpaper - 10 drips

  • Other fanart and anything else – drips will awarded at Mod’s discretion based on the effort we judge was required to create them.

*To qualify, a playlist must have a Spuffy theme related to a prompt and link to a YouTube Playlist you have put together or have the videos embedded in the post. There must be at least 5 songs.
** Icons/wallpapers must be more than a cropped screencap.

In addition, each of your creations will go towards your rank in the final union as follows:

  • New Recruit: 20 drips

  • Paid-up Member: 40 drips

  • Shop Steward: 60 drips

  • Regional Officer: 100 drips

  • Diversity Champion: Over 100 drips, with at least 50 that don't come from fic

  • General Secretary: 500 drips

  • Union Chair: 1000 drips (Yes, it is meant to tough!)

Additional Rules – read carefully!

  • Please add a link to your creations in a unique thread below so we can easily keep track of them.

  • All submissions must relate to a prompt somehow and comply with normal community rules.

  • Rules are subject to change at the discretion of the mods (to ensure the game is working and everything is fair or even to shake things up if we want to!).
