Greetings, earthlings!   tongue

Just poppin' by to see if any of you cool, hip-happenin' Futurama fans wanted to take part in a community project to celebrate the coming season? if so, details below!

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! Futurama is BACK (duh) and you know what this means--

time for a massive fandom-wide celebratory community project!  big grin


-> What is this project about?

The idea behind this project is to count down the last 100 days until the premiere. Each day will have a Character prompt assigned to it. A week's worth, or 7, Character Prompts will be revealed at a time. At the end of every week, the journal will be updated with a new set of 7 prompts and so on.

-> What do I have to do?

You may compose ANY type of fan creation <i>centering around</i> the Character Prompt (drawing, writing, fanvid tribute, cosplay, etc).

-> Does my fan creation have to be a masterpiece to be accepted?

If your fan creation is a drawing or a piece of writing, it is perfectly fine for the drawing can be as simple as a sketch and the writing to be a small paragraph, drabble length. You do NOT have to go "all out" on every prompt, though you can if you want to.

-> Do I have to do EVERY single Character Prompt?

You are NOT required to complete every single Character Prompt - you can choose whichever ones you want to do, or do them all. Your choice~

-> What do I do when I'm done creating?

After you have completed your fan creation, you may comment with the link to it on this post or my deviantArt journal. My partner, CrystalMask and I will feature your creation on our pages.

-> What will be done with all of the project entries?

Every single fan creation for every week will be saved. At the very end, on the day of the new Futurama season's premiere, I will compose a deviantArt news article or two to showcase all of our Futurama fan creations together.

-> What if I'm late to the project and I missed the character I wanted to do?

That's okay! If you are late to join the project and have missed a character prompt that you want to do, you may still make a fan creation and it will still be included in the project and the final news article(s)."

-> When does this crazy project start?

It already has! On Tuesday, March 16th, there were 100 days left before the premiere of the new season of Futurama.


Here's my page, where the entries will be featured: http://missuspatches.deviantart.com/

Here are a few of the entries we have so far!:

"We are the Brain Spawn
beings of superior mind
Your world is our lawn
here we kick your behind

Don't try to run away
You cannot escape
the wrath of our stupidifier ray
which will make you dumb as an ape

Our infosphere is almost ready
Great knowledge it contains
So get ready to scream like a lady
For world domination we'll soon obtain"

I'd do something but I can barely understand the instructions.

"hip-happenin' Futurama fans"?

« Reply #3 on: 03-31-2010 04:08 »

Freak, I edited the instructions a little. Are they clearer now?

I'm still not entirely sure what a "Character Prompt" is.

« Reply #5 on: 03-31-2010 04:58 »

A prompt is something that serves as an inspiration, 'prompts' a person into action; a Character prompt is when the source of inspiration is a character.

For example: Today's Character Prompt is 'Jellyfish Nurse', so a person participating in the project could be inspired by the Jellyfish Nurse to make something about them.

Hmm, maybe I'm over-complicating this by using the phrase... I hope it makes more sense now.

Alrighty! Thanks for your interest~ (:

Is this thing still going? Because nothing seems to be happening.
