Ficathon! (Or ficlet-a-thon, whichever you prefer.)

Now that all the holiday challenges are over, I can finally put my plan for this community into action! I know a lot of people are probably a little burned out, but the minimum word count on this is only 350 (hence "ficlet-a-thon"), and stories aren't due until April 1st, which gives you nearly three months to come up with something. This is just a character-and-prompt challenge, no big assignments. Little character pieces are the goal here.


- There is no sign up deadline. You can sign up any time up until the day stories are due.

- Characters will be chosen at random out of the SGA bowl, the SG1 bowl, or the combined bowl.

- Two prompts will be chosen per person at random. You can write either or both. (Don't worry, I'll make sure the prompt goes with the show - ex., Teyla and Chulak obviously don't work together.)

- minimum word count: 350 - the point of this ficathon is small character pieces. Gen would be great! You can write a 'ship piece, but the character and prompt you were assigned should be the focus.

- If you'd like more than one assignment (only 350 words!) to start out with, please indicate that. One assignment should be in by the deadline, additional assignments can be turned in after.

- If you finish before the ficathon closes and want another assignment, just come back and sign up again with a note saying you've already completed one. Second assignments can be turned in after the deadline.

- Ficlets should be posted to ordinarymoments on or before April 1st.



Your sign up should include:
1) username and email address (so I can send you your assignment)
2) if you want SG1, SGA, or either
3) a maximum of three characters you absolutely cannot write (per show)
4) optional! two prompts: a place (example: Atlantis) and a thing (example: ZAT gun), to be tossed into the prompt pile

Example:
1) amitee / notreally@myemail.address
2) either
3) Teal'c, Hammond, Davis, Halling, Radim
4) gym, encyclopedia



Characters crossed out have been assigned. If they all go, I'll throw them all back in the bowl and start fresh!

SG-1: Jack O'Neill, Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter, Teal'c, George Hammond, Hank Landry, Cameron Mitchell, Jonas Quinn, Janet Frasier, Vala Mal Doran, Paul Davis, Malcolm Barrett, Harry Maybourne, Carolyn Lam, Bra'tac, Jacob Carter (Selmak), Lionel Pendergast, Paul Emerson, Walter Harriman

SGA: John Sheppard, Elizabeth Weir, Rodney McKay, Teyla Emmagen, Carson Beckett, Ronon Dex, Radek Zelenka, Aiden Ford, Steven Caldwell, Evan Lorne, Peter Grodin, Sgt. Bates, Dave Kleinman, Halling, Acastus Kolya, Ladon Radim, Laura Cadman, Michael Kenmore, Simon Wallace, Sora, Marshall Sumner, Dillon Everett, Lindsey Novak, Kate Heightmeyer, Richard Woolsey

2) Either (but I've only seen the first few seasons on SG-1)

3) I've only seen the first few seasons of SG-1 so I don't know who Cameron Mitchell, Jonas Quinn, Vala Mal Doran, Paul Davis, Malcolm Barrett, Carolyn Mal, Lionel Pendergast, Paul Emerson or Walter Harriman are and I only know Landry from SGA.
in SGA - rather not write Kleinman, Everett or Novak.

2) SG-1 preferably, but SGA is good too
3) SG-1: Paul Davis, Malcolm Barrett, Caroyln Lam // SGA: Halling, Ladon Radim, Dillion Everett

BTW, I haven't seen much of either show so I'm not familiar with a lot of the characters. If I end up with someone I don't know much about, is it okay to change?
