SunLight Sliders II Sign Ups are Now Available! · 7:25pm December 1st

About SunLight Sliders II:

SunLight Sliders II is a collaborative romantic comedy starring Sci-Twi and Sunset Shimmer as they jump between parallel dimensions of both Equestria and the Equestria Girls version of Earth where each contributor will write their own chapter, picking up from where the previous author left off.

Contributor Requirements:

  • Authors must have at least one story published on FimFiction.
  • If an author does not have one published story, they may private message a moderator with a link to a Google Doc with a sample of their writing.
  • Admin Team reserve the right to decline anyone's request to contribute to SunLight Sliders 2.
  • Notifications will be sent through FimFiction and Discord when it’s time to write.

Current Story Prompt (December 1 2017):

The original SunLight Sliders ended with the human Twilight Sparkle sitting in her room, only to be interrupted by an unstable portal erupting into existence and a bloody and bruised Sunset Shimmer stumbling out with a damaged Talisman/TPT. Sunset gasps for help before she falls unconscious and Twilight catches her as she falls.

SunLight Sliders II picks up immediately and will feature this couple.

The Basics:

  • Signups begin December 1, 2017.
  • Signups close December 18, 2017.
  • Author Writing Order will be announced December 27, 2017.
  • SunLight Sliders II will kick off on January 1, 2018.
  • Anyone wanting to join after signups are closed will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
  • Each author will have 3 days (72 hours) to write their chapter to the ongoing story.
  • Each chapter must be 1,000-1,500 words, with a maximum of 2,000 words.
  • The first and last chapters have a maximum of 3,000 words.

Content:

  • Keep the story T-rated or lower.
  • Avoid gore or grimdark themes. Remember, this is supposed to be a shippy comedy!
  • No crossovers with other shows/animes/books/etc except for the MLP comics (of course). In addition, no Anon/HiE/Displaced-style characters.

Chapters:

  • It is up to each author how they want to present their part of the story, although they should make an attempt to flow smoothly.
  • Authors may not reuse any original character, universe or organization described in the original SunLight Sliders. (No Accord, dimension-spanning Tirek, going back to a universe established in the first novel, etc.).
  • Authors should do their best to not require the next author to stay in the current world.
  • When possible, make it easy for the next author to jump into a new universe.
  • Authors must follow the previous chapter’s story before continuing. Don’t jump scenes without a transition between the previous one.
  • Try to keep the style to third-person limited. The difference between third person limited and omniscient can be found here.

It's a bit of a shame that I don't have the time to help...

Even in the first few months of the new year?

I have far too much to do in high school to be doing much writing recently. Aside from a single story that's literally just throwing ideas on a page, most of my stories have been updating quite slowly.

Hey, you're smarter than me. You know when to say no to a challenge! :pinkiecrazy:

Not to mention that I already have enough trouble with my own Author Universe as far as trying to keep it alive with updates and fics.

Ahhh...horse feathers.

I’ll do it.
