challenge name: the modern au challenge

challenge deadline: 15 may 2020

accepted fandom(s): pretty much any fandom is fair game, no original fiction though since a modern au sorta requires source material for the og universe :P

accepted ratings: give me anything ya got

challenge details: as you may have been able to piece together by looking at my author's page, i fucking love modern au's. give me all of them. so the challenge here is to write one of your own! i'm also happy to give you a random au idea if you want one.

rules:

  • no prewritten entries
  • can be any length, rating, genre, whatever
  • can be combined with other challenges
  • multiple entries are allowed!
  • please include 'for down-in-flames' modern au challenge' somewhere in the story summary/notes

rewards: 

  • third place: award graphic, 3 reviews on stories of your choice, and a picspam inspired by your entry
  • second place: award graphic, 4 reviews on stories of your choice, and a picspam inspired by your entry
  • first place: award graphic, 5 reviews on stories of your choice, a picspam inspired by your entry, and a link in my signature for 3 months

 

alright, let's do this! :elmofire:

this might be a dumb question but... what *exactly* constitutes a modern au? does it have to be a muggle au or can it have magic? i'm sure i've written a modern au before, but i'm not entirely sure that's what i called it, ahaha :P

i'm good with finishing up a draft! (mostly because if you hadn't asked i might not have known that's what it was anyways :P)

i would say in general no magic! the concept is mostly just that you stick characters from a fandom into today's world, more or less. you've definitely written modern au's before - i'd classify glass and dumb ways to meet teddy lupin as modern au's for sure!

I'm in and already have a crazy idea- Draco gets his reluctant cousin in on the crime of the century: stealing the County Inter-School Rugby Championship Trophy from their rival school's team.

okay so, i technically have a modern au that are wips on my ap and my docs, so how do you feel about a new chapter being an entry ? (if not i also have some ideas that i've been wanting to do so like it's no biggie)

(also, i don't wanna jinx it but you may see multiple entries from me?)

(i love how this is what inspired me to finally write again)
