Poll about monthly challenges

kriadydragon and I are thinking of running a monthly challenge, open to new fic, old fic, and fic recs. It would be similar to the sga_flashfic challenges, but the emphasis would be on exploring (often over-looked) characters and aspects of canon. There are a lot of cliches and fanon floating around, and we'd like to encourage people to take a good look at what's actually there in the shows.

To kick things off, we were considering a "beginnings" challenge, which might mean the events during the beginning of one of the shows, a character's beginning with the Stargate program, or even the beginning of the program itself--after all, the very first, aborted start of the Stargate program was back in 1945.

Participants could write new stories, post stories they have already been written, or recommend stories that fit the challenge requirements. The deadline would be the end of the month. And, of course, the stories would have to meet the requirements for posting to the library.

So, what do you think--yes? No? Have a better idea you'd like to share with us?

I think that sounds fabulous!
So that's one down for "yes"!
Sounds great! I really like the idea of a beginnings challenge. Lots of potential.
That sounds great. Especially since [Unknown LJ tag] is mostly slash.

Good call!
This is a wonderful idea since we can rec stories instead of writing them.
I think it sounds great too.
