Welcome to the Stargate Atlantis MOVIE FREE FOR ALL!

In this challenge, you'll be able to choose a prompt from any movie ever made! That's right, from the first talkie (The Jazz Singer) to the most recently released movie at the box office, you can take the summary of the movie, or the movie itself and use this summary/movie to write a story of at least a thousand (1,000) words or create a piece of art either based directly on the film or extrapolating from it. Stories can fit directly into the canon SGA-verse, or can be complete AUs—it's up to you. Any genre or rating is allowed—stories can be as cracked out or as hard-boiled noirish as you want. Gen, het, and slash stories are all welcome and encouraged.

Characters from SG-1 and other TV shows or movies starring SGA actors (e.g., Boa vs. Python, Thoughtcrimes, Pterodactyl) are allowed as crossovers. Other crossovers are not disallowed, but I would prefer if you stuck to the universes of SGA and your prompt.

Similarly, betas are not required, but I would encourage you strongly to use one. If you do not have a beta, there is a Volunteer Post where you can request or volunteer beta services.

Sign-ups are open from January 31st, 2010, ending by midnight EST on February 28th, 2010. All works are due by April 25th, 2010; that is a little over twelve weeks. I would ask you to post your work, or a link to your work, to the community on that date. I will then add it to the comm's master list.

Please include at least the following minimum information in your post: Title, author, rating, pairing(s), any warnings/spoilers, prompt.

Please DO NOT sign-up to THIS post. This is the info post ONLY. I will edit it with links to the actual sign-up posts shortly.

If you're interested in signing up, please go to the following post: SIGN-UPS!

Reel SGA "Free For All"

So obviously the movie free for all won with a landslide of the votes. *g* I know that there are a lot of challenges going on, pretty much ALL the time, so I'm looking to find out what time period people would be most likely to sign up to write for this challenge if I go ahead with it.

The challenge would be run like the previous challenges, same rules, same basic idea. The timeline would be pretty much the same, approximately eight weeks to write the story etc.

This is NOT the sign up post *g* This is just gauging an interest in a free for all challenge.

Poll #1475488 Reel SGA

When would you most likely take part in a new Reel SGA challenge? If sign ups started...

after April

Reel SGA Challenge 2009

I've been considering having another reel_sga challenge this year but am, as of yet, undecided as to what the theme will be so I thought perhaps getting some input might make it more clear as to what theme would gain the most interest.

So, for your polling pleasure, I give you, reel_sga 2009:

Poll #1425494 Reel SGA 2009
This poll is closed.

Should the theme be...

Fairytales (any fairytale adapted to film)
Musicals (this would probably be fairly hard to represent in fanfiction but *shrugs* the idea amuses the hell out of me *g*)
Movies from the 70s (as, with both previous challenges, we seemed to completely ignore the 70s)
Horror (any film that falls under the horror genre - could be classic, modern etc)
Movie Free For All (you can choose any film ever made)
I have a better idea and I am going to tell you what it is in the comments!


Thank you again to everyone that took part!!
