Official "Love Games" Challenge Rules & Guidelines

(as posted to my Yahoo Group)


This is a love triangle (or rectangle) challenge.

Basically, one or both girls (Buffy and Faith) are involved (or about to get involved) with another person, and I want to see some sparks fly. I mean, emotions, all sorts of them, and what it causes them to think and do.  I'm especially going for some sort of jealousy bug here.

Why? Cus I think it's hot. It's one of my favorite elements in a Fuffy fic, and when it's done right, I really can't get enough of it. Of course I'd love to see our girls get together in the end, but that's totally up to the author.

In my perfect world, the 3rd party is primarily a catalyst for Buffy and Faith to confront their feelings.

Also, when I say love triangle (or rectangle) I don't mean 3 way (or 4 way) sex scenes. However, if you can include some sort of emotional impact that the event may cause either girl to go through, then by all means, have at it. I was going more for the traditional love triangle idea, but if sex is where you want to take it, I'm sure all sorts of creative things can come of it.

The Basics

1. Must be Buffy/Faith Centric
2. Season 4 or after, please. I'd like them to be adults

In Closing:

I realize the holidays are pretty busy for most of us, so I kept that in mind when I came up with the time frame. Hopefully it's not too much and it's not too little, because I'd really like for a lot of people to participate. And that means writers, readers, and reviewers alike, because submitting a challenge entry is not the only way you can participate. I have prizes for our loyal list reviewers too!

So December 6th, my lovelies. Let the Love Games begin!


PS: And to our incredible List Crier, will you start a daily countdown beginning December 6th?  You know I appreciate you!! :x :x :x
