I don't mind fanfic but crossover isn't really my favorite kind.

That being said I have a great idea and it's been almost a year since I wrote for the contest.  Hopefully I can manage to set aside some time to write a story this month.

That was a lot harder than I thought it would be. It's been fun to dive back into some of my favorite books and re-visit the characters, but it seems very difficult to do cross-over fantasy fanfic without breaking some of the rules of one world or the other. (And remembering all the rules well enough to write within them and come up with plausible conflicts...oy.)

Regardless, I pushed my way through and have a first draft now.

Does Resident Evil novels count for this contest? Alice and Umberella Corporation are heading into the murky Malazan world at Morn!

I have a plot theme, where Umbrella Corporation unearthed some ancient historical texts and performed a ritual which opened up a link (Warren)  to Morn where the K'Chain Che'Malle matron resides. Her influence is what leads Umbrella to wreck havoc in Earth and give the bad men powers, like when she helped the Pannion Seer before.

Now Alice discovers this, invades the Warren, travels to Morn   and closes the link..... With lot if hack and slash.... Plus maybe with help of some characters from Malazan world.

Sounds within rules? I'm gonna call this Resident Evil : Fallen!

I emerge from my hole into the light once more, only to realize it's fanfic February, the month is half gone, and I suck at fanfic ;).

I at least have one side figured out if we are allowed to use the classics. The other day I found my old CD copy of Return to the Center of the Earth. A gift from my parents over a decade old and I thought "why not, to the center of the earth we'll go" after listening to it again.

Dude, I say go for it! Fanfic month is for fun, IMO. Last year, I wrote a Nathan Drake vs Lara Croft fanfic (both have books, after all!) and it doesn't get more videogame than that. :)

Welp. I forgot about this. And fanfiction is my specialty. *sigh*

I'm hoping a bunch of entries are going to appear in the last few days, per normal. Only four days left, folks! So many good crossovers to be done!

haha, I'm gonna nope outta this month.  You guys have been waaaaaaaaay outta my wheelhouse the last few months.

Consequently, I have kindly offered to provide prompts for the rest of the year.  My descriptions are a lot shorter than yours.

March: Paranormal Romance.  Because I just really want to read porn.
June: Fantasy, IN SPACE
July: Rogues.  Give me a heist story.
August: Epic Fantasy.  Instead of 1,500, the word limit will be 150,000
Sept:  Rogues again. Because I like rogues.
October: Horror.  Gore! Blood! Guts! Splattered everywhere!!!!!
November: Write a play-by-play of your best ever D&D/RPG campaign
December: Monkeys.  Write a story with monkeys.  Don't ask why, I just love monkeys.

Come on, who likes monkeys? Who wants to review 150,000 words? And we already did rogues.
But fantasy in space instead of sci Fi sounds like a downright good challenge.

@Nora

HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE MONKEYS
and if it were up to me we'd do Rogues EVERY month

(Also, in retrospect I shoulda put the 150k word one in Nov for NanNoWriMo  :) )

Jan can be twitter month where you have to write a story in 140 characters or less.
(actually that could be fun if you had to follow the submission before you....)

While I'm not serious, I would (and probably have previously) *totally* write the hell out of all of those prompts (save paranormal romance)

Spoiler for Hiden:
Unrelated, and in spoilers b/c... I have no idea...   but while I suck at writing crossover stuff, I do enjoy reading it. My fav crossover Fanfic of all time has to be this one:
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5256888/1/Courage-VS-The-Golden-Girls-VS-The-Lion-King
maybe that will get someone's creative juices flowing

I was joking as well Bea.

Though, WHO LIKES MONKEYS, I'm not joking. Have you been near monkeys? They're little shits.
@Bradley Darewood wanna play a game? I challenge to write about rogue characters every month for the next 4 months. *diabolic laughter*
