Summer Survival Series - August 2016 - The 'Missing Moments' Challenge

Challenge Dates: submission date August 27th; publication August 28th

Open to: Fan Fiction, Fan Art, Graphics, Fan Videos

THE PROMPT:

With 16 hour-long episodes per year, there’s only so much time to devote to our favorite characters on an ensemble show. Thus the showrunners have admitted that we miss a lot of the moments in our characters’ lives. So much of what makes our heroes “Team Family” happens offscreen… dammit. Well, this is where you get to fix that by focusing on the missing moments we know have happened, but never got to see unfold on our screens. Did Lori see what was developing between Carol and Daryl? How much did Daryl resist being voted onto the council? Who taught Carol to be so handy with a gun? These and many other questions can be answered by you.

You can pick any scene that is “missing” from the series,  but remember, this is a Caryl archive, so your story has to prominently feature both Daryl and Carol.

GO DEEP ON THIS ONE, PEOPLE!  We have SIX SEASONS (whoops, almost wrote “sex seasons” there) to pull from.

THE DEADLINE: Submissions must be turned in by midnight Pacific Time on August 27.

THE RULES:

For FANFICTION:

Send a PM to Ikkleosu or subversivegrrl that you want to enter the challenge. Even if you're not sure you'll have anything ready in time - let us know you're planning on it. YOU MUST DO THIS TO BE INCLUDED.

WRITE! Stories must be at least 100 words.

Multiple entries are allowed!

No McReedus (given the theme, we assume you already knew that.)

Do not upload it yet! Wait until August 27 to upload your fic – just like in challenges past, we will be suspending automatic validation for that day for all authors who enter the challenge.

Submission Day is August 27– post your fic. It will not appear on the archive, but will enter our validation queue. Make sure you submit it under the Nine Lives Challenge category!

Publication Day is August 28 – We will post the master list and all of the challenges entries so everything shows up at once. That way, we’re all surprised by what we get to read!

Any challenge fics posted before August 27th will be deleted.
