Welcome! You're here to bring about the end of the earth three times in a row or more! And here's how to do it...

1. Claim a bingo card HERE.
2. Create fanworks (all fanworks welcome: 1 square minimums = fic/meta 300 words, 3 icons, art min. size 100x300 pixels, 3 recs/300 words, 30s of vid, 3 songs for fanmix. No upper limits!)
3. Post completed bingos to the comm.
4. Prophesy doom to all your fandoms.

Works created for the challenge must involve an apocalyptic threat arising from the prompts on your card. However, you are not required to end the world with every square, if that's sounding a little too downbeat.

An apocalyptic threat is one that threatens an entire region/country/continent/planet/solar system/galaxy/universe etc, so it's up to you to pick how wide the threat is. The threat can be averted, postponed, or the fanwork can be concerning the survivors post-apocalypse, or your characters visiting a world destroyed long ago. It doesn't need to be "rocks fall, everyone dies" every time. It's up to you what you go with - total Destruction, inevitable doom, survival against the odds, bleak but with hope, “cosy catastrophe”, apocalypse averted, crackfic, parallel universes. The choice is yours. Using a canonical apocalypse scenario is fine, too, as long as it fits the prompt you're filling.

You're welcome to interpret the prompt as you please, but if you would like to know more about prompts/apocalypse types, most of the prompts are from these sites - please click the links for more info: Wikipedia's Apocalypse page, List of Risks to civilisation, List of Apocalyptic Fiction and TV Trope's Apocalypse How. There's also a Discussion & Resources post for further info or recommendations.


All fandoms are welcome, as are original works. There is an AO3 Collection.

As this is an unusual kind of bingo, there are no rounds or deadlines - merely sign-up for a card and complete a bingo whenever you choose.

It's fine to double up prompts with other challenges (provided the other fest/comm/challenge allows it).

It's now been around a year since this community went live! Since then, members have created 53 works in 43 fandoms in the AO3 Collection, with more posted elsewhere. \o/


This is chiefly a reminder that (as a bingo with no rounds and no deadlines) [community profile] tic_tac_woe is still active and open for fictional annihilation at any time. Please continue to post any fills to the collection and your bingos or any isolated fills from abandoned cards to the comm whenever you choose.

If you would like to drop your card, you may do so here or at the Sign Up Post. (Once formally dropped, you can claim a new card should you wish.)

We are always open for new sign-ups (and those who have achieved a bingo are welcome to sign up for a second card should they wish to). Just go to the sign up post as above & begin.


We also have a Resources Post, with links to useful apocalyptic sources for research & inspiration. If you have any other sources/links to add, let me know here or there & I'll update it.


One last (but important) thing: this community has no rounds, but I will annually review the prompts. Given the theme of the challenge (among other things), I don't anticipate changing anything much, but if you feel any particular type of apocalypse is missing etc., just comment to the post & I'll look into it. Thank you!


Otherwise feel free to chat about bingo progress and general apocalyptica here!

Just a reminder that (as a bingo with no rounds and no deadlines) [community profile] tic_tac_woe is still live! Please continue to post any fills to the collection and your bingos to the comm.

If you would like to drop your card, you may do so here or at the Sign Up Post. (The difference between actively dropping a card and merely not working on it again is that once you've officially dropped it, you can claim a new one - but everything you created for the previous card will not count towards the new one, even for the same prompts. But if you like to draw a line under things that didn't work out, or would prefer to start afresh, the option is there.)

We are always open for new sign-ups (and those who have achieved a bingo are welcome to sign up for a second card should they wish to). Just go to the sign up post as above & begin.


If you want to discuss anything, give feedback on the comm, or share creating triumphs or woes, or just general love of the (fictionally!) apocalyptic, please feel free to do so in the comments here.


Don't forget that we also have a Resources Post, with links to useful apocalyptic sources for research & inspiration. If you have any other sources/links to add, please do so there (or here) and I'll update the post.


Otherwise, carry on as you are - and don't forget to check out what's already in the Collection, as we currently have 36 world-ending works in 30 fandoms.

Since [community profile] tic_tac_woe is still new and those of us who've signed up are now contemplating the apocalypse several times over, I thought a post for discussion and sharing of resources might be fun/useful to start us all off, especially as it's a sad but true fact that not all our fandom friends understand the appeal of the apocalypse!

So...

* Wondering about the different ways of interpreting a prompt, or looking for good fictional examples of various apocalypse types to inspire you?

* Got any handy recs for any good/inspiring/unusual apocalyptic canon or fanworks, or songs for vidders, fanmixers, and those who like to have an appropriate playlist to work to?

* Wavering as to which fandom you want to use for which square? See if anyone else is interested, or is prepared to toss a coin for you, or help you narrow down which squares to fill out, or which medium to use - and its challenges.

* Bat a few ideas around generally.

* Anything else you want to discuss relating to the fest & all things apocalyptic.

etc. etc., in this post.

Resources, Ideas etc. under here )

(If you have any specific questions about the comm, or the meaning of a prompt, please ask at the Info & Guidelines post as usual. If you're lost and looking for a card, go here. Anon commenting is on at the comm for those who want/need it.)
