1-20th of September: sign-ups are open; 25th of September: all pairs will be announced; 30th of September: all pairs need to inform the mods about the lady they have chosen; 1st of October-30th of November: time for working on stories; 31st of October: check-up point; 30th of November: all stories will be posted.
You can choose any Marvel lady you want to tell a story about.
Your story should be based on comics, not movie universe.*
You need to know character’s comics background and history, so please choose wisely.
Your work must consist of three comic pages.
You can create a whole little story, a part of the story, a prologue to a bigger story or a story in any other form you want to use.
You can create a completely new story that can take place after/during/before on-goings or older comics, you can rewrite a certain storyline you’re not happy with (e.g., Cassie Lang’s death), you can write a pamphlet, an action story, a story showing your character in domestic surroundings, et cetera et cetera.
You can NOT write a vampire/coffee shop/elf AU or any of the sort.
Male characters can be represented in your story, but your main focus should always be on the lady.
Make sure your story is not out of character: your lady doesn’t react in a very unusual to her way, she doesn’t make unnatural decisions, doesn’t wear clothes she would never put on and so on and so forth.
You can choose any costume for your lady: the one she wore before, the current one or you can do redesign (this doesn’t concern domestic clothes: here you have absolute freedom).
After choosing a lady together and informing the mods about your choice, you have two full months to create a story.
Try not to put off the work till the last day, but don’t oppress yourself and have as much fun as possible, the event shouldn’t be a torture!
By 31st of October you must send a synopsis of your story (from a writer) and a rough draft of three pages or a complete page (from an artist) to email@example.com.
Make sure your comic page has proportion 2:3 (width no less than 500px).
If you won’t be able to do lettering yourselves, write to the blog/email/any of the mods and we’ll solve the problem.
If you do several stories but feel that you don’t have time to finish all of them, try to finish at least one and inform the mods beforehand.
If you’re certain you can’t finish any story, please write to the mods as soon as possible! We’ll try to help with finding a replacement.
Please try to finish your story in time! Of course, if there are any problems and you don’t have enough time to finish, we’ll give you an additional week or so, but please don’t count on that time.
All works will be posted on the 30th of November.
You can either submit it to the blog or post it yourselves.
If you post it yourselves, every pair should agree on who of the two will post the story (it can’t be posted twice, by both artist and a writer).
If your work is done earlier, it will be posted with other stories on the 30th of November.
You must credit everyone in the post: a writer, an artist and a letterer (if lettering is done by another person outside of your team).
Give a name to your story and don’t forget to indicate it in your post.
You can add any personal notes on how it was to work together, any difficulties, et cetera – anything you’d want to share.
Make certain the template of your post looks like this:
Give your team a name! Have fun! Create something that pleases you! Do your story with love! The point of the event is to share love to your favourite female characters with others.
