003 - Reality Is Really Real  
Your task is to create a reality show and have fictional characters participate.

What you need to do:
1. Name your reality show
2. Describe it in 1-3 sentences
3. Have at least 8 fictional characters - up to two from the same fandom, no more - participate. For this part, you have several options and you only need to do one:

- picspams - 4 images of each character
- gifs - 2 of each character
- 100-ish words about why each character joined in their words - like an audition where they get a minute or two to say why they want on the show


You may not mix&match and these are the only options.

If you for whatever reason cannot or don't want to come up with a reality show, you can do only step 3. for partial points. For example, you can simply put 8 characters in the Big Brother house and do picspams or gifs or auditions for them for 45 points.

Please post your entries elswhere - your journal, your fic/graphics comm or satellite_the and link them here.

Deadline: September 14th, 11:59pm EST

Points: 25 for an original show - name & description, 45 for picspams/gifs/writing, +1 for sig tag = max of 71

Questions and/or comments

So, you mean we have actual characters (say, Sherlock, or Captain Kirk) participate in a reality show? Or characters we totally invent as played by real actors?
founder_the: the avengers: BAMFSfounder_the on September 3rd, 2013 07:24 pm (UTC)
Actual characters.

you're talking 800 words, right?
founder_the: the avengers: BAMFSfounder_the on September 3rd, 2013 07:24 pm (UTC)
Yep!
meredith44: TSHSS Wanda defaultmeredith44 on September 3rd, 2013 10:35 pm (UTC)
I have two questions.

1. In other comms, sometimes for challenges like this, we can have the option to have a partner and just do more work. So we would write more about the premise of the show and then either have twice the characters, do twice the amount for one option (so 4 gifs or 8 images) or we do two options (picspam and gif for example). Would that be a possibility here?

2. Does this have to be a reality show for our reality? Or could I set a reality show in the Marvel comics universe and pull "normal" characters into a world with aliens and superheroes and stuff and have a reality show geared toward that? (Like on another planet or something?)

Thanks. :)
founder_the: the avengers: BAMFSfounder_the on September 4th, 2013 12:10 am (UTC)
1. Sure! The description should be at least 5 sentences and you need to have 16 characters in that case.

2. Any reality is fine!

Thanks! So if I chose to do the partner route, it would still be just one of the options for the 16 characters? Or could one of us do picspams for 8 of the characters while the other made gifs for the other 8 characters? (I really have no idea if I'm even going this route, but I figure I might as well get it all straightened out first before I decide. :) )

Different options are fine!

I just read the part about not being able to mix and match, after being more than half way done setting up my "show". I had thought to mainly do pics but with a few lines along with them -- not trying to hit the 100 word mark, just a comment or two as to why the characters are involved. I'm not trying to get extra points or anything like that. Since I'm not aiming for the 100 words but am including both text and pics, would my entry not be allowed, or would a bit of text be okay?
Kat Lee: Team Firekatleept on September 9th, 2013 06:51 am (UTC)
Here's what I had in mind: http://katleept.livejournal.com/138095.html . I decided I wanted to do it regardless of rather or not I could actually use it, but please let me know if it's acceptable or not. If it is, I'll post it as an entry; if not, I'll do a second with only the pictures. There's not a hundred words for any one character, I'm quite sure, BTW.
founder_the: the avengers: BAMFSfounder_the on September 9th, 2013 12:53 pm (UTC)
That's ok. I'm never going to deduct points for extra work! If there is any one of the options present, it's good for me, anything else is up to you - you can have as much or as little of the rest as you want. Even if you had over 1000 words for each, it would be fine.

No mix&match simply means that you can't do - in this case - picspams for 3 characters, gifs for 2 and writing for 3 but as far as I'm concerned you could do picspams, gifs and writing for every single one of the eight of them - it'd just be a lot more work for the same amount of points, not disqualified.
Kat Lee: Wick!katleept on September 9th, 2013 01:27 pm (UTC)
Cool! :-) It was a little more work, but it was a lot more fun than I thought it would be when you first posted the challenge!

Sorry, last minute question, do animals count for the 2 characters from a fandom?
philstar22: Doctor Who: Jack Harkness kinda hotphilstar22 on September 14th, 2013 11:23 pm (UTC)
Oh, and if they don't, can I use Sirius as a pet in dog form and not have him count as a third character? I'm amused by the idea of James Potter entering the context with Padfoot as his pet. I'm not using the animals as among my 8 characters, only as the pets that they bring along with them.

Sorry for missing this, I babysit almost all nights so after 7 - sometimes 7:30pm if I have a ride but usually I leave at 7 - I'm not always able to answer questions!

Animals would've been fine and/or you could've done that with Sirius. If you did either, it's ok - I just woke up and I haven't gone through the entries yet, I'll do it later when I tally so I'm not sure what you did but I wanted to reply now.

I'm having trouble coming up with characters after plotting out this whole thing, so I'm hoping it's okay to just submit the show for the partial points? If not that's fine, but I figured it was worth a try.

Title: Horror Within
Description:
Sixteen contestants. Fifteen classic horror themed arenas.

Survival reality television may never be the same.

Watch as contestants battle their way through different arenas each week, individually designed and populated with creatures for the sole purpose of exploiting and exploring classic horror genres. They’ll have to face werewolves, zombies and demons; survive paranormal activity, surgical horror and slashers; and fight to the death with their own worst fears to survive.

Each week, one must die for the others to live.

There is only one rule.

Survive.

I hope this is okay since I haven't heard back. I tried to hedge my bets and do nine characters just in case there was a problem. But I really liked my idea and couldn't come up with another.

I couldn't come up with a concept. So I'm going with option 2, where I just pretend they are all stuck in the big brother house or something.

Eight picspams at my graphics comm
