Challenge 151: TROPE BINGO  
In addition to any recs you wish to post at any time, the comm has monthly rec challenges issued by the mods.


Challenge 151:

Category: Anniversary Trope Bingo
Deadline: November 1
Challenge: To celebrate het-reccers’s anniversary, we’re kicking off a month of TROPE BINGO! Comment on this post (on LJ) or send us an ask (on Tumblr) to receive your bingo card, then post tropey recs based on your squares—five in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row gets you bingo, and each bingo (up to five) gets you an entry into our prize drawing. Any and all pairings are welcome; your bingo squares can be from as many or as few fandoms as you like. Reccing more than one fic rec per bingo square is allowed (and encouraged!), and you can complete your bingo row in just one post or a series of them. As always, be sure to check the tags for your fandom and ship and try to avoid reccing any fics that have been previously posted to the comm.

At the end of the month, 5 winners will receive a podfic of their choice, and the whole community will get to enjoy awesome recs with all your favorite fanfiction tropes, from sharing-a-bed to road-tripping to your-OTP-in-the-apocalypse!

As always, to post a rec on Tumblr, follow the simple directions on our submit page.

To post a rec on LiveJournal, you don’t need to ask for posting rights—just become a community member, copy/paste the text below, and post it as a new entry!

Okay, I want to try, I'm always thinking i need to rec more but then never actually do it. It's gonna be hard with how busy uni is getting (and the fact that I've been reading so much f/f lately) but hopefully I can manage to rec *something*!

Thanks for signing up! Your personal bingo card is below, and you have until the end of the month in your time zone to rec at least five fics that match up with the squares on your card. Five in a row means bingo! On October 31, we’ll remind you to check in with your complete list of trope bingo recs and enter you into the prize drawing—where five lucky winners will get a podfic of their choice recorded!*



*To keep things simple, stories to be podficced must be posted on Archive of Our Own, available in English, no more than 4,000 words in length, and have clear pairings, ratings, and content warnings stated up front. You must also obtain permission from the author to use their work, if it hasn’t already been granted. We’ll do our absolute best to match your request with a reader, but you may want to have a few potential favorites lined up just in case.

Happy reccing!

For mind games... something related to brainwashing okay? I'm not quite clear on that one!

And first time(s)... can be ANY type of firsts, right? (My first thought when I read it was that you were asking for characters having sex for the first time then my mond came out of the gutter and I thought, maybe smit isn't required...

And the I'm at a complete loss for nonhuman lovers, what like animals? or cartoons? I just, I have no idea what this means. Ohhhh wait, Aliens?

Mind games: anything involving someone's head getting messed with is valid.

First time: anything! I think this trope tends to be used for sec purposes (and that's my first reaction, too!) but any "first" for the couple is cool.

Nonhuman lovers: anything where at least one (or both) of the people involved isn't human. This can be a canonical situation, like how in Doctor Who the title character is an alien, or it can be an AU where one or more characters is an alien, vampire, angelic creature, etc. I think the prompt is meant more for humanoid nonhumans than, like, bestiality.

Hope that answers all of your questions!

Yes, yes it does, thank you!
