Represent your OTP!  
THE SHIPPER MANIFESTO CHALLENGE


het_reccers presents the first round of a project designed to show off your OTPs! Got a favorite pairing? That One True Pairing that is your sole or primary interest in a given fandom? Well, time to REPRESENT! Do a "Shipper's Manifest" for that pairing. This is a public declaration of fannish love for a particular pairing or ship, but unlike ship_manifesto, our comm is centered around - you guessed it - fanfiction recommendations!

Round One is now open!



Timeline:
Sign ups - until Wednesday, March 31st, noon PST.
Manifests should be posted to the comm by no later than April 30th, 2010. You can start submitting anytime.

Sign-ups: So, you've got an OTP in mind, right? Sign up to claim it by dropping a note to this post! First come, first serve - only one person can claim a pairing at a time. (Next round won't begin until another six months have passed.) You must be willing to rec at least 10 fanfiction recommendations. As per comm rules, only het pairings are allowed, but you're free to choose any het pairing from any fandom, anywhere. ;)

What should be included in the Shipper Manifest?
Your posts should include:
Fandom:
Pairing:
Blurb: [Tell us about why you choose to ship this pairing. Talk about the characters, the relationship, the canon, the fandom - be as detailed or as brief as you like! Sell us on the awesomeness of your OTP!]

Then list your recs.


Use one of the following templates to make your Shipper Manifesto post. Either list your top TEN recs of said pairing/fandom, using a truncated version of our standard het_reccers format, OR you can use an alternative template, which asks for a variety of different types of fics. (i.e. Alternative Reality, Best Angst, Best Smut.) If you don't think you've got enough variety to pull off the second template, you can always use the first standard one which asks for 10 recs of any flavor. ;) Because we're asking you to rec, at minimum, 10 fics, we've truncated the rec template to make it easier to fill out. Both templates are HTML format, so you can cut/paste for easy use! Also, feel free to rec more than 10!

Template #1: 10 Recs of any flavor.


Template #2: 10 specific recs! Includes spots for best: Drama, Action/Adventure, Alternate Universe, Angst, Fluff, Hurt/Comfort, Long Fic, Short Fic, and Overall Romantic story.

Kelly: CM Emilybowserbabe on March 17th, 2010 01:51 am (UTC)
Stupid question.

What if there aren't 10 good fics for a ship? >.>

If I swear to read all the fanfic I can possibly find and still can't find 10 I like, can I rec less than 10?

Must I rec subpar fic?!

Must I choose a less awesome ship?!

WHAT DO I DOOOO.
Kellybowserbabe on March 17th, 2010 01:52 am (UTC)
Also this is a super great idea even if I end up not participating myself.

I always like to know why people like the ships they like.

Bobby Goren/Alex Eames from Law & Order: Criminal Intent, please. Thanks!

Also, a question...two of the best ever Goren and Eames fics (two of my top 10) were recced here about a year ago by another member. May I still use them?

Rafiki, the crazy baboonirony_rocks on March 17th, 2010 05:16 am (UTC)
If you can find new recs, that would be preferable. If you can't find any other, then yeah, we'll allow it for the shipper manifesto. ;)

One question before I choose my pairing - can several of the fics be from the same author or is more variety required?
Rafiki, the crazy baboonirony_rocks on March 17th, 2010 05:17 am (UTC)
Variety is good, but if one author is that awesome, we'll accept it!

What an awesome idea! :D

And may I have McCoy/Chapel from Star Trek IX?

And I've got the same problem as above, at least two of the fics that must be rec'd have already been rec'd. Is it okay if I have a slightly separate list that mentions those? In addition to the new 10?

Again: Awesome idea!
Rafiki, the crazy baboonirony_rocks on March 17th, 2010 08:20 pm (UTC)
