Non-Con 2011

Share
SPN quote know a little about a lot of t
It's that time of year again. Wincon is Thursday, October 13 – Sunday, October 16, 2011 this year, and as always we strive to match those dates, as the point of this community is to be the convention for the fans who can't attend Wincon in-person.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to organize and participate in this year's events. I will be attending Creation's Supernatural Toronto convention October 7-9, and my family is also in Ontario so I will be visiting them and have spotty-at-best internet access until October 18th (and most likely only through my Android phone). So I am looking for someone to volunteer to take over the responsibilities of this community. I can help plan and code and host images, but the overlap with my family-time just won't let me do the whole shebang.

If you are interested in taking over this community, please let me know. Comments are screened, so you can also leave me your email address so I can email you passwords/coding/whatever if you decide to help out. If no one volunteers to take the ball and run with it, I will close the comm on October 6th. Even if you are not able to/want to take over, please help spread the word. I love this community - and this fandom! - and I really want someone to make it successful again this year, and hopefully throughout the run of the show.

Closing Remarks

SPN quote know a little about a lot of t
Another year, another win_non_con. This is the smallest turnout that we've had, so I honestly don't know if this is something that we can continue in its current form. I have really enjoyed being a part of this community from the beginning, and I really want to see it continue until the run of Supernatural is over, so I am open to suggestions on how to change it to make it more successful.

Friday we had livewatches of the new episode, Weekend at Bobby's. I think it was a fabulous episode, don't you?

Friday we also opened up

There is still my terrible drawing of a scene from Hookman in there that no one guessed. (I never made ANY promises about my MSPaint skillz, yo.)

Saturday we launched

This was a lot of fun, and we got more participation in this the longer it went on.
We do have a winner to announce for this one...
the Bullwinchester-Lytton Worsr First Line for win_non_con goes to caffienekitty for this masterpiece of badfic:
As Dean lay on the pavement he consoled himself with the thought that Sam had a new family with Samuel Campbell and the cousins and would be alright even though they were so obviously evil, so he died with a clear heart, went to Heaven and got liquored up with Ash and Pam, developed a complex three-way open sexual relationship that worked out fantastically even though they were dead and technically didn't have bodies to smear with Nutella and he never thought about Sammy again for the rest of his endless afterlife.
Isn't that terrible? Amazing!

Saturday night we also rewatched Monster Movie, one I really enjoy, especially at this time of year. ;)

Today we had fun over at
.
Some great ideas in there! Check them out if you get a chance, there are some great screencaps too.

I have not had any response to the virtual prom, so it will be cancelled for tonight.

Anyway, that pretty much wraps this up. I want to thank everyone who participated in this little weekend activity, especially ysbail, who made the graphics, and my partner in crime this weekend, caffienekitty, without whom we would never have been able to run so many activities.

Thanks for playing along!

Caption This!

Below the cut are ten screencaps from season 5 and the season 6 premiere. Your mission is to give them silly captions! \o/

Make sure your captions are clearly marked as to which picture they apply to, and caption as many as you like. No spoilers past 6.04 in captions please!

No voting this year; this is just for fun, crack and the odd mutant plot-bunny. Spread the word, tell your friends!


Here are the pictures in need of captions!Collapse )
ETA: at 5:15 PM EST we still have a tie! So I'm going to leave the poll open for another hour!



Here are the winners from the three rounds of the WORST FIRST LINES competition; there are actually 4 options as there was a tie in the third round. Now. YOU MUST CHOOSE. One, and only one, vote will count per person in this round; as always please click on the TOP radio button for your vote. Could I be a vessel for a certain someone? PERHAPS.

Pick one, and only one, worst first line. Me? I'll be in the hall, removing my eyeballs with a melon baller.

Voting will close at about 5pm EST - you get plenty of time to decide on the best of the worst.... or worst of the worst? - with the "winner" being announced at con closing at 7pm EST.

Poll #1632073 Bullwinchester-Lytton Round One
This poll is closed.

Entry 1

The handkerchief was sodden, turned a vaguely yellow colour, and clutched tight in the grip of an openly sobbing Sam Winchester, who was experiencing pain

unlike any other in his young life, as he stood at the altar with his brother Dean, who was getting married to a woman and thus would no longer be a potential

0(0.0%)

Entry 2

Bobby knew he was in trouble as soon as the kiss with Crowley ended, because his initial thought was not, "ew," or "I hope I never do that again," but "hmm, so that's what
1(100.0%)
the girls mean about beard burn... interesting," and as such could not look anyone in the face for a good twelve hours without reaching up to play with his own beard.
0(0.0%)

Entry 3

It was a dark and stormy night, or rather, it was a bright and sunny afternoon inside a dank basement with electricity issues, when Sam Winchester discovered that
0(0.0%)
not only was he afraid of giant rat-king demons but also little tiny mice that seemed to be populating said basement, leading to his embarassingly urine-soaked
0(0.0%)
appearance and girly shrieks that caused Dean to laugh hard enough to knock himself out when falling over the railing and into the corpse of the rat-king.
0(0.0%)


Also, to clarify, these lines should be your own creations. Come up with the worst first sentences you can - run-on, gross, eye-gougingly terrible gems should be shared freely! :)


So, if you've played in previous years, you know what this is all about. It's the brainchild of deirdre_c that I took over a couple years ago.

It's a spin on the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, which celebrates the worst first lines in fiction. Your mission? To put that ol' Winchester spin on things and make people cry with how bad you can be.

It consists of three rounds of submissions and three rounds of voting. Check the itinerary for submission and voting times; each round will continue until the new one opens.

The basic rules:
1. Each person can enter up to three "first lines" per round.
2. Sunday afternoon the three "winners" will be put up in one final voting poll to determine the ultimate champion. Winner gets two months free paid LJ time and some nifty graphics.
3. You can submit any characters, any genre. This means Wincest is OK. So is het. Go wild, kids.


To get us in the mood, let's look at last year's co-winners:

Eyes pink-rimmed after a long night of sobbing into his teddy bear, the rest of Dean's face fared little better: freckles standing out like cancerous pimples, skin as pasty white as last night's undercooked pancakes, and the final straw, dried snot flaking above his upper lip... and all this because the damn car wouldn't start for him, but did for Sam.

Dean moaned, the sound almost entirely unlike the mournful death croak of an Abbysinian bullfrog being crushed by two decorative paving stones on a hot August morning in Nantucket, but it did have sufficient tonal elements of that sad final amphibian warble that both Sam and Castiel wondered if suggesting Dean eat just one brussels sprout was too much to ask of a man who'd been to Hell.


Now, those are eye-bleedingly bad, but I know we have it in us to top that this year! Come on and show us what you've got!

First round submissions should be submitted as comments to this post. Submissions will close at 4pm EST/ 1pm PST.

WARNING:Comments may include spoilers for all US-aired episodes, including last night's Weekend at Bobby's.
