I am back from my traditional New Year's holiday at Chez [personal profile] solo, where there was much boozing, some laziness, some whore epilogue writing, much being snubbed by the cat *sob*, fangirl visitors ([personal profile] mec and [personal profile] threewalls), YAMAPI IN A CAR CALLED AKKUN, Scottish breakfasts at garden centers, and rain. LOTS of rain. RAIIIN.

But have made it home, and have the weekend to resign myself to going back to the office in Monday.

As many of those Present And Snubbed By The Cat were involved in some sort of fic bingo writing, we were at some point joking and wondering about an Akame fic bingo, and, well, the idea had some appeal to me and sort of sunk claws into my brain.

I haven't given much thought to how exactly this would go, in part because I am currently brain-free, but I wanted to throw this out there to gauge general interest. The best-known example in fandom is probably [community profile] kink_bingo, just for cards and rules and concept, though obviously that has a a different thrust than an Akame-centric challenge.

So, basically, I'm asking: If there was a bingo-like challenge about Akame themes -- you get a bingo card with randomized prompts and try to fill those in by writing fic of a to-be-specified length over a to-be-specified-time-period -- would you be interested in participating?

The sort of prompts those cards would include would probably involve a communal brainstorming exercise and some more coherent thoughts on feasibility. I could see both specific things like 'Okinawa' or 'conbini sightings' or 'Yukan Club' and more generic things like 'hair' or 'rumours' or 'dating'. There'd also have to be some thoughts on how to deal with getting too specific -- if seven people have cards with 'pinky rings', it might not be the most interesting thing to have seven pinky ring stories, is my thinking, etc.

But that's sort of... detail. Mostly I'm curious if there'd be enough interest to maybe put some thought & work into how something like this might... work.

Any thoughts / discussion / votes?

Oh, votes: on DW I can haz poll!

This bingo thing sounds fascinating! As long as it's not restricted to a short period (wouldn't a year be cool?), and there's no pressure, I think I'd take part! :D And I can't deal with max. word counts, because I find it difficult to write drabbles, or exact word counts, like those 100 words challenges.
The more I think about this, the more I like it. And I like your examples. Actually, I'd love to start right now. xD (Only no time until middle of January.)

Count me in for a brainstorming post! :D

Additional thought: I saw that the kink_bingo community thing has prizes, but personally, I would be fine without any prizes. But that's just my opinion. ^^

So... this hypothetical bingo, would we be talking just about fic? :O

Aww I hope more people were interested. As that lovely person up there pointed out, over a long period of time it wouldn't even get stressful D: Also, there's still no Akame Big Bang >_>

And is that the person who wrote that fic I'm obsessed with? >_>

I meant to link you, but then I didn't because I thought we might have the same followers, but now I will #wtf u_u

With baseball no Kame! I'm pretty sure it's that person! And I still haven't commented on that story! #myshame That story needs more love!

You linked my fic journal, not this one. ^_^

I think it would be interesting to try. How many squares were you thinking? 3x3? 4x4? 5x5?

No worries! I should've just been consistent when I did my journal naming. ^_^

The smaller the card, the more likely people will have different prompts, but I guess it depends how many prompts a brainstorming session would generate.

Am planning on posting later, so will link then!

And it'd probably be best to advertise when it's fact and not project...

I think, that's good idea, and it can be any words count, right?
And I like your topics :)
