Welcome to Lewis Challenge, a community dedicated to running various fanwork challenges and exchanges for the Lewis fandom. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please don't hesitate to drop us a comment here.

Masterlist of MasterlistsCollapse )

***
Official Signups will be open for the Women of the Morse Universe fanwork challenge will be open on lewis_challenge until 11:39 p.m. EST this Sunday May 23.

This challenge is open to any and all fandoms in the Morse Universe (Endeavour, Inspector Morse, Lewis, and/or Colin Dexter’s novels). I've tried to keep the requirements as open and as minimal as possible to foster creativity and encourage participation.

This challenge is open to any and all  types of fanwork you may wish to create. This includes but is not limited to: fanfiction of any length, graphics of any kind, fanmixes, videos, memes, etc.   Any and all pairings (or none) are welcome including: gen, het, femmslash, slash, polyamory, crossovers, and OCs.Similarly, all genres of fanwork are acceptable. We only ask that people warn for anything that might be potentially triggering in their prompts or fills.


To learn more and/or signup for the challenge, see here.
To make or view  prompts, see here (You don't have to be signed up for the challenge to do so!)


Hope to see some of you there :)

In  comments of this post, leave prompts for the Women of the Morse Universe Fanwork Challenge

Prompts can be short or detailed, and take any form you like.

Write the preferred fanwork type and  fandom/pairing/characters in the subject line of the comment box. This makes it easier for people to find the type of prompts they might be interested in filling.

Provide warnings if you are discussing or linking to potentially triggery content.

Examples:

Subject: Art, Fred/Win
Prompt:  Sharing a Sandwich

Subject: Fic, Gen or  Innocent/Maddox, Warning: violence
Prompt: I would like fic where Innocent helps Maddox fix her broken-down car while a killer car mechanic is on the loose.

This post is solely to find inspiration or leave your unwanted plot bunnies and express your deepest fannish wishes. However, remember to keep all prompts to the guidelines

  1. The canonically female character(s) must remain in equal or greater focus than the men (ex: Joan Thursday appears in at least 13K of a 15K Jarse  fic and plays an active role in the proceedings;  Laura Hobson is giving or receiving the majority of the romantic/sexual attention in a Lewis/Hobson/Hathaway podfic).

  2. Please no genderbends. The intent of this challenge is appreciate the canonically female characters as women. Fan art of “Petra Jakes” or “Laurence Hobson” would be kind of missing the point. (Save them for another time.) Exceptions may be made—if the gender-bent characters are minor to the story (Ex: If someone is planning on doing a Lewis “Everyone is a Lady AU,” the focus of the work should still be on Jean, Laura, Lizzie, and/or Julie—as opposed to “Roberta Lewis” or “Jane Hathaway.) Ask if you are unsure whether your desired work would meet the criteria.

  3. In reference to the above, trans interpretations/head canons are welcome, but any works must comply with the first rule. In other words, a character that presents as female in canon must be in equal/greater focus than a character who presents as male in canon. In other words, even if you head canon Morse as “assigned female at birth” or Gurdip  as “currently undergoing a male-to-female” transition,  there must be a canonically-female-presenting character as a major player in  any fanwork created for this particular challenge.  Some examples might be, trans!male Morse discussing his transition with his half-sister Joyce or trans!female Gurdip in a line drawing  with Lizzie Maddox.  Remember that the purpose of this challenge is to recognize the  canonically female characters, as they are often overlooked in fanworks in favor of Morse, Jakes, Thursday, Lewis, Hathaway, etc.

There is no need to 'reserve' a prompt for yourself (though feel free to comment on each other's prompts, the prompter will undoubtedly be thrilled to know if you're considering their idea or even agree that it's the best ever). More than one person can use the same prompt as inspiration. Similarly, no one is obligated to use the prompts here.

Play nice. There will be no mocking/insulting of each others' prompts/pairings or exclamations of disgust/horror. Your kinks are not everyone else's kinks and vice versa, be respectful. Or else.
Thank you to lewis_challenge for allowing me the fantastic opportunity to guest-mod a fanwork challenge dedicated to the wonderful female characters in  the Morse Universe.

Unlike the normal challenges on this comm that are Lewis-centered, this challenge is open to any and all fandoms in the Morse Universe (Endeavour, Inspector Morse, Lewis, and/or Colin Dexter’s novels). I've tried to keep the requirements as open and as minimal as possible to foster creativity and encourage participation.

What Types of Fanworks are Acceptable?

This challenge is open to any and all  types of fanwork you may wish to create. This includes but is not limited to: fanfiction of any length, graphics of any kind, fanmixes, videos, memes, etc.


Any and all pairings (or none) are welcome including: gen, het, femmslash, slash, polyamory crossovers, and OCs.Similarly, all genres of fanwork are acceptable. We only ask that people warn for anything that might be potentially triggering in their prompts or fills.

Specific Requirements

There are two specific requirements for this challenge in order to make sure that the desired  goal of lady-appreciation-and-recognition is achieved. You may want to keep these in mind if you are on the fence about signing-up.


  1. The canonically female character(s) must remain in equal or greater focus than the men (ex: Joan Thursday appears in at least 13K of a 15K Jarse  fic and plays an active role in the proceedings;  Laura Hobson is giving or receiving the majority of the romantic/sexual attention in a Lewis/Hobson/Hathaway podfic).

  2. Please no genderbends. The intent of this challenge is appreciate the canonically female characters as women. Fan art of “Petra Jakes” or “Laurence Hobson” would be kind of missing the point. (Save them for another time.) Exceptions may be made—if the gender-bent characters are minor to the story (Ex: If someone is planning on doing a Lewis “Everyone is a Lady AU,” the focus of the work should still be on Jean, Laura, Lizzie, and/or Julie—as opposed to “Roberta Lewis” or “Jane Hathaway.) Ask if you are unsure whether your desired work would meet the criteria.

  3. In reference to the above, trans interpretations/head canons are welcome, but any works must comply with the first rule.

Challenge Update

***

Hello Lewis Fen!

Thank you to all who participated in the Lewis Trope/Cliché 20th Celebratory Challenge, what exciting stories for us to catch up with! We're working on the Masterlist of fics as we speak, so expect that within a few days.

However, here is something else for you to keep an eye on! For the first time, lewis_challenge is hosting/supporting a 'guest challenge'. We will provide a platform (one of many) for people to sign-up and participate, but the challenge is itself is organised ('guest modded' if you like) by oldmoviebuff76. The challenge will focus on 'Women of Morse-verse' and we're pleased to support it. More details and sign-ups are coming on 15th of May so keep an eye out.

This will mean that this year's Summer Challenge will be moved later into the summer, but it is still planned (provided you want it of course).

Thank you all for your continued enthusiasm and support!

Love from your mods,
kat_lair & pushkin666

Fic: Sanctuary

Title: Sanctuary
Author: perclexed
Characters/Pairing: Laura Hobson/Jean Innocent
Rating: Mature
Wordcount: 9306
Warnings: Depression
Categories: Angst, Angst and Hurt/Comfort, Friendship/Love
Summary: Laura Hobson finds herself drawn to Jean Innocent after watching the woman struggling in the aftermath of her divorce. Laura wants to help her friend, but will Jean allow it?
Notes: Takes place after Series 8.

I should make Somniare a cape. She keeps coming to my rescue, like she did with the beta on this fic. (Everyone, all together: NO CAPES!) This was written in a VERY short time frame to make deadline for the Lewis Trope Fic Challenge. Any remaining errors are the fault of the sleep deprived, too stressed author. Please note: I'd consider this more of a completed rough draft than a truly complete story. It hangs together as it stands, but I'm posting it to DW/LJ only for now. Once I have a chance to really get it to where I want, I'll post to AO3.

SanctuaryCollapse )

Fic: Invisible Leaf

Title: Invisible Leaf
Author: greenapricot
Characters/Pairing: James Hathaway/Robbie Lewis
Rating: Teen
Wordcount: 4302
Warnings: None

Summary: Foul weather, hostile witnesses, and a late night after a very early morning lead to Lewis and Hathaway spending the night in a B&B. Hathaway is far from keen on the idea.

A/N: Takes place sometime after The Dead of Winter.

Of the tropes I was given I chose magical themes, this didn't turn out particularly magical, but a few other tropes did sneak in there as well.

Story delay part 2

Mods, everyone, sorry, I cannot upload this story at all, to either AO3 or lj and I can't figure out why. Hopefully I'll be able to figure it out on Sunday. Right now I'm too upset and I have work in the morning, so.

Fic: Sweet James

Title: Sweet James
Author: LyricaXXX
Characters/Pairing: James/Robbie, James/Robbie/Laura
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 12005
Warnings: Mild Kink, Mild Discipline, Mild BDSM, Clothing Discrepancy, Power Play

Trope/Cliché: BDSM

Summary:

James is already barefoot and coatless, aroused and shivering, when Laura appears in the doorway.

She stops when she sees him standing in the narrow space between the kitchen counter and the wall, arms held stiffly at his sides to keep his fingers from dancing. “Good morning,” she murmurs. Her gaze lingers on his bare feet, making him curl his toes against the cold tile.

“Morning, love,” Robbie says brightly, looking up from his paper. His smile is a burst of warmth in the already warm kitchen as he motions Laura in.

Then he glances at James, says coolly, “Take off your trousers next.”

With thanks to guinevere_81 and perclexedfor bolstering my confidence in the story, and also to paperscribewho kindly beta read it for me, as short as it is.  This challenge turned out to be harder than I anticipated and very nearly defeated me.

Originally posted by guinevere_81 at A third career choice for James Hathaway
Ok, so this is the story I intended to write for the trope/cliche challege. I haven't been able to finish it... it just won't come together so if you don't want to read chapters of an as yet unfinished story just consider my morning posting as my contribution. This is a work in progress and I'll try to get a few chapters up today.

Title: Amarantha's Braid
Author: BlueIris4
Characters/Pairing: James Hathaway/Robert Lewis
Rating: Mature

Summary: A series of interconnected mini-stories in which Lewis and Hathaway are and always have been female.

Over the last month I’ve been playing around with a world in which Lewis and Hathaway are both women, but the odds and ends of this world haven’t come together into a cohesive story yet. So instead, here are a few interconnected stories in this alternate universe.

Strong language and explicit activities, but warnings for nothing else other than the ridiculous lengths I'll go to to get these two idiots together.
