Earlier today, jane_elliot and I were discussing the fact that it can be hard to get recommendations for het fanfiction from ficsearching communities, as many of them are dominated by people who read slash and gen.

So we decided to create a multi-fandom community specifically dedicated to finding het fics:

het_ficfinders

Both searches for specific stories and requests for recommendations are welcome.

You're all invited to a new community for stories, discussions, recommendations and artwork on the theme of women in authority. This can mean anything from women in leadership positions to femdom BDSM.

women_lead

To get the community off the ground, we're having a Women in Power Challenge - feel free to submit prompts or even fill them! Fanfiction of any fandom is allowed, as is original fiction and artwork.
 
 
The last challenge here at tw_exchange was back in Autumn 2008, and I'm fairly sure that in the past we've always had a challenge after each series of Torchwood.

So, would you all like a challenge after S3, Torchwood: Children of Earth finishes?

As usual you would have around 3 months in which to write and post your stories, which would have to be a minimum of 2,000 words (there's no maximum limit).

If enough people vote to have a challenge, then I will set up a poll to choose the theme. So far our rounds have been: general, crossovers, AUs, character's pasts, and unused prompts. Here are all of the ideas leftover from the last poll:

Things (or people) coming through the Rift
Travel (to other countries, planets, time zones, realities)
Crossovers with DW or SJA
Stories inspired by the lyrics of John Barrowman songs (NOT songfics)

And one I've just thought of: Torchwood families. (So fics could be written about Jack's daughter, Ianto's sister, Rhys, Gwen's pregnancy, etc, as well as purely fictional families made up by the authors or prompt-writers.)

Suggestions for themes to add to the poll would be greatly appreciated.


Would you like to see another Torchwood fic challenge?

Yes, definitely, and I'd take part
15(65.2%)
Yes, but I can't take part (beyond contributing prompts and reading fics)
6(26.1%)
Maybe, I don't care either way
0(0.0%)
No, there's already a Torchwood challenge underway elsewhere that lothy doesn't know about
0(0.0%)
No, for some other reason
2(8.7%)

Do you have any suggestions for the theme of round 6?
