100 Fandoms

Multifandom Insanity

The 100 Fandoms Challenge
Posting Access:
Anybody , Moderated
This is a multifandom challenge community, where the idea is to get people to write stories in one hundred different fandoms. I shamelessly ripped off the idea from fanfic100, and freely acknowledge that they came up with it first. There's no claim table for this community, as I can't imagine any two people will write in the same one hundred fandoms.

To inspire and frustrate you, you also get one hundred prompts to write your stories around:

001.universe 002.edge 003.cleave 004.distance 005.away
006.home 007.key 008.star 009.dust 010.shadows
011.old 012.new 013.borrowed 014.blue 015.promise
016.dishonor 017.wreck 018.fix 019.crack 020.clip

Many thanks to everyone who suggested words for the table.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: One hundred fandoms?! You're crazy!

A: Why, yes. I probably am. Care to join me?

Q: What do I need to do, exactly?

A: Probably you want to go get the code for the claim table and put it in your journal. Then you start writing and filling in the table by linking from the prompts to your stories. You can post your stories in the community, too.

Q: How long do the stories have to be?

A: At least one hundred words each. (I'm not planning to go around counting them, though.)

Q: Isn't it going to take a long time to write in one hundred different fandoms?

A: Unless you are really fast at writing, I imagine so. I plan to take at least a few years. There's no time limit and no hurry.

Q: Can I use stories that I've written before to fill in the table?

A: I'm not going to stop you - in fact, I may join you.

Q: What constitutes a 'fandom' for the purposes of this community? I mean, are Flash and Batman two different fandoms or do they both fall under DC Comics?

A: I have neither the time nor the inclination to settle your moral dilemma over whether Justice League and Justice League Unlimited are two different fandoms. Please decide this kind of thing for yourself.

Q: How about crossovers?

A: I love crossovers, so knock yourselves out. Conceivably you could get to one hundred fandoms after only fifty stories that way, but you still have to write a story for each prompt to complete the challenge. If you've written some crossovers, feel free to double up on some fandoms. You don't need to write in more than one hundred. That would just be silly.

Q: This looks too crazy for me. Is there something else that's like this, but more sane?

A: If you like the concept of writing one hundred stories based on prompts but aren't nuts enough to want to write in one hundred different fandoms, then I suggest you take a look at fandom100 and the many affiliates listed in its profile. That's just a start - there are many other fanfiction communities with claim tables out there. I don't have time to list them all!
