This short thing shall be my contribution to AUGUST. The premise was inspired by Arkas' rather, ahem, 'artful' Dutch rapping during a stream, and a prompt from /r/writingpropmts. Once I get some other more monstrous fics out of the way, I may end up making a short series of this. If that happens, this can safely be assumed to be a preface of sorts to said series. Til then, it stands as is. Enjoy!
Well I got more inspiration. This collection includes wereshark AU (...yes), flowers and ribbons and spies (oh my) AU, and solarpunk AU. Small warning for a bit of blood. It's not too much, but I thought I'd be safe.
My submission for A.U.G.U.S.T Many thanks to my beta SyrupWink for both checking it and coming up with a name when I struggled.
On a distant planet, where nights are long and days are filled with extreme dust storms, the craft U.S.S. Mindcrack crashed. Left to fend for themselves on the alien world where Zombies rose in the night and death was less permanent than they remembered.
Jsano, with Seth’s assistance, looked for a cure for Zombism. And the group survived well enough for the first year, staying in their broken shell of a craft, trying to fix their transmitter.
Once their Shell had finally broken beyond repair they began crafting forts to temper the night in. Many had their own place, a few shared, and they all helped out if someone was in danger.
But the forts now crumble, their resolve is weakening and a few days ago people started vanishing. No-one knows how much longer they can hold out, nor who will vanish next.
A short collection of short AUs. My contribution for A.U.G.U.S.T.! There might be more of these if I get some additional inspiration. This collection includes police detective AU, Harry Potter AU, and Star Wars AU, because I am a nerd with 0 shame. Contains many notes, uh, apologies for those who don't know the source material for the latter two, I did my best to explain.
Not written for the purpose of A.U.G.U.S.T. exactly, however it does fit the theme, and it gives me the perfect opportunity to intro this story. Some interactions can be perceived as a ship, however that is the reader's interpretation.
The Mindcrackers' plan for a fun vacation takes a turn for the worst as they become stranded and must learn to work and live together to survive.
Twitch SUPERFIGHT Tournament (http://www.superfight.tv - Guude, Doc and Pakratt will be participating. Check out the site for a schedule and torunament plan as well as any other relevant information.) Oh, and don't foget: the Mindcrack Deck for Superfight has been released in physical form now. And of course there's the DLC version too, for the steam game.

So, how's everyone doing? I know I'm very busy at the moment. Are you?
Announcing: A.U.G.U.S.T. (Allround Universal GEN Utilizing Story Time)
August is here and with it we shall celebrate an idea that has been discussed since about November-ish last year: A month emphasizing on strories that are completely without shippings in the usual interpretation of the word: romance.
We want to take some time to look at other aspects. Other relationships. Other types of love.
Want to write a story that focuses on that one unique friendship that makes you smile? Want to write that character study about an interesing quirk or hobby of someone? Want to write that AU that takes in the time of pirates and exploration? Or something so unsetteling that it was even to scary for Halloween? Wheter you explore a completly new or a familliar setting is your choice! All stories are welcome, as long as the romantic aspect is kept to zero.
Of course that doesn't mean that you can't or shouldn't post any stories during this month that don't fall under this theme. By all means, write, post and read what you enjoy! This is meant as a community theme, a challenge, a source of inspiration if you will; hilighting the endless possibilities that exist.
All authors that contributed to this theme with a story (or more) are free to post a link to their project in the comments until the end of the month, so that we can look back at this event in future. You can also add a story you've written prior to this, as long as the criteria are met. Just add a small note about this somewhere, so we can differenciate between "old and new".
Furthermore, if you have an idea for something that you would like to see someone else pick up or would generally like to help out, feel free to leave prompts in the comment section below as well. Please title your comment with "Prompt Suggestion" if you do, for easier visability. =)
That's it. Don't forget to tag your works accordingly everyone and happy writing!
UPDATE: We now have a fancy, new tag for everyone to use: salad event: a.u.g.u.s.t. 2016
