the tswift song challenge | 13 december 2019

Recommended Posts

down-in-flames

while approximately a quarter of you on twitter told me that i need to calm down, i'm delighted to report that i'm doing nothing of the sort and proudly presenting you with a new challenge:

tenor.gif?itemid=10107659

Challenge Name: the tswift song challenge
Challenge Deadline: 13 december 2019 (my choice of deadline is very intentional 😉)
Accepted Fandom(s): hp, original fiction, potentially other fandoms (just ask!)
Accepted Ratings: ~anything~, as long as it's hpft archive compliant
Challenge Details: 

  • if it wasn't obvious by... well, everything about me, i love and adore basically every song taylor swift has ever made. the point of this challenge is to use one of those songs in a fic - how you choose to do this, however, is entirely up to you. you can make it into a songfic, you can directly incorporate the lyrics into your story, you can just adopt the general theme of the song, or hell, you can even subvert the lyrics into a fic with a totally different mood (i've done this one before, and i can attest that it's quite fun). 
  • you can choose a song yourself, or you're welcome to pick a random number from 1-117 (the track order is shuffled but still in order by album 1-15 are taylor swift, 16-33 are fearless, 34-49 are speak now, 50-68 are red, 69-84 are 1989, 85-99 are reputation, and 100-117 are lover) and i'll assign you a song. 

Rules:

  • all entries must be posted on the hpft archives.
  • wips and/or chapters in existing wips are accepted. nothing needs to be fully completed by the deadline.
  • you're welcome to double up with another challenge.
  • nothing prewritten, please. (although if you've previously written something tswift-inspired, please point me to it anyways.
  • must include 'written for down-in-flames' tswift song challenge' or some similar derivative somewhere in the summary.

Rewards: 

  • every entry gets a review!
  • 3rd place: 2 bonus reviews, picspam based on the story, link in my signature for 3 months
  • 2nd place: 3 bonus reviews, picspam based on the story, link in my signature for 3 months
  • 1st place: 4 bonus reviews, picspam based on the story, link in my signature for three months

so I've been tempted to write a fic for 'look what you made me do' pretty much since the first time I heard it, so maybe this will give me an excuse to write something :P

just in case that doesn't work, can I see a number from either speak now or 1989? I'll be a maybe!

This is absolutely perfect, the one-shot is already writing itself in my head 😊 
My idea works either way, but to clarify, are modern aus okay?

Hey, can you randomly give me a random number?  I know all of five Taylor Swift songs off the top of my head, so I'd like to broaden my horizons.

Thanks!

The fact that almost the entirety of my "recently listened to" on spotify is Taylor Swift and my twitter name is currently "be an alpha type"....I definitely need to do this. 

Can you give me a random number? I have multiple ideas running through my head and I can't pick just one.

 

Note: I did write a Harry/Ginny songifc based on Superman a few years back. I'll try to find it and reupload it here if I can!
