This year, to mark both Valentine’s Day and International Fanworks Day, lewis_challenge is trying something new.


Lewis Roulette


How Does It Work?
Like roulette, you pick a colour (red or black) and you pick a number (0-36) and you spin (comment in this post) and you see what Lady Luck (that’s us) has in store for you. Essentially, it’s a lucky dip of song prompts. You pick red you will get a love song (for the hopeful romantics among us). You pick black you will get a non-love song (songs on various other themes, nothing romantic here per se). We have a randomised list of 36 songs in various genres (pop, rock, rap, opera, blues, classical…) for each colour.

List of Claimed Prompts Here - CHECK THIS BEFORE SPINNING!

How Should I Use My Prompt?
As an inspiration for your fanwork, however you choose to interpret that. You can let it inspire you in general ways, insert it into a story (last song in the murder victims mp3 player?), use the lyrics in graphics, do a vid with it, use it as a starting point for a fanmix… The possibilities are endless.


What If I Hate My Prompt Song?
Tough. Remember though that you don’t have to use the song in a positive manner to inspire your fanwork… You can write a ficlet about Robbie ranting how the kids nowadays just don’t understand music.


How Many Songs Can I Claim?
Max two in the first instance. There may likely be spares left over as we get toward the end of claiming period.


What’s The Minimum Output?

  • 500 words of fic

  • 6 icons

  • 1 larger graphic

  • 30 sec vidlet

  • 6 song EP fanmix

  • Other forms of fannish creativity are more than welcome, just let us know your plans


What’s The Timeline?

  • Prompt claiming opens: 24th of Jan

  • Prompt claiming closes: 12th of Feb / as long as there are unclaimed prompts. That’s right, you can claim right up to the posting period but note you have to have your fanwork ready for that!

  • Posting starts: 13th of Feb

  • Posting closes: 15th of Feb


Sounds Awesome, Can I Pimp This To My Mates?
Please do. And feel free to grab the banner to do so.


I’m Still Confused And Have Questions
Then ask away.

If I understand this right, I can ask for two number/color combinations in this first request, I think. So I would like to claim 7 red and 21 black, please, if I may.

Yes you are entirely correct. And what an interesting spin. Lady Luck brings you

This may be a very, very bad idea (I'm neck deep in small fandom bang) but, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

May I please have Red 36?
kat_lair
25th Jan, 2015 13:54 (UTC)
Hee you most certainly may. Lady Luck brings you You’re The One That I Want by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta :D Have fun!

I haven't written a word of fic in over a year. But I'm going to be doing quite a bit of travelling in the coming couple of weeks and perhaps this might help me get started. Especially with just a 500 word minimum.

Red 4
Black 4

please, and thank you!

*cross fingers and hope to get songs I actually know*

I really shouldn't as time is somewhat limited at the moment, but I love this idea and can't resist having a go. It looks like Red 0 is open, so I'll go with that.
