I noticed a few of you mentioned wishing there wasn’t so much crackfic and you wished regular fic was allowed or there was more of it.
Let me make it clear that the type of fic written is completely up to the writer. We joke around and do silly stuff here, but that doesn’t mean you have to write crack.
In fact, of the 18 fics I’ve written for SPNColdestHits, only 8 were crack. The point is to get the least amount of points. In doing so, some people choose to write badfic or crackfic, but from what I’ve seen, crackfic does not equal a winning fic. In fact, I haven’t figured out the right combination to win yet. As you have probably noticed, since I’ve never won 😀
The themes we post are simply themes. They’re a starting point for your fic. You can interpret it however you want, no matter how crack-y the theme sounds.
Speaking of which, if you win and you’d like to pick a totally serious topic, please feel free to do so. The winner has complete control over the theme.
Each writer also has complete control over pairings, tags, characters, etc. A lot of the participants tend to write Dean with Castiel, which is fine, but all pairings and genfic are welcome 🙂
