THE CHALLENGE:

 

The "Challenge of Five" is a year-long challenge created in 2006, in celebration of the 5 year anniversary of the Spectrum Headquarters website. Although we are now beyond  the 10 years mark  of this website's life, the Challenge is still ongoing and you still can present stories to meet the challenge.  See the participation rules below.

 

Read the following information and rules to know what the CHALLENGE OF FIVE is all about...

 

 

The following text, originally written on January 2006, has been modified for today's presentation:

 

 

More than Ten Years ago

 

A website slid gently onto the Internet. 

 

It sat quietly and waited…  people found it.  People visited it – they liked it and participated.

 

In the first five years of its life, the website flourished.  It grew.  Sections were added, subjects were debated – and the fan fiction section expanded exponentially.

 

With more than 500 stories today – hosted on its own space, or linked to other sites – the Spectrum Headquarters site owns the largest ever online collection of Captain Scarlet fan fiction.

 

The site continues to grow, but those five years were crucial to its survival

 

And that was why, five years after its initial launch into the online community, the Spectrum Headquarters  presented its FIFTH Fan Fiction Challenge.  And the subject of this challenge is…

 

   

 

What could a ‘FIVE’ Challenge possibly be?

 

It could be a story about five characters; or a story using five different fandoms, or even five universes (think multiverses, people…).  It could also be a fanfic in which the events happen during five hours, five days, five weeks, five months…  It could be five years into Spectrum, or five years before Spectrum.  You can also write a five part story or even submit five different stories within the same arc.  Or you can get together with four others and have a story written by five authors.  Or if you are really ambitious – it can be a fanfic with five threats from the Mysterons.

 

Anything – as long as the ‘Five theme’ is found within the story.  There are probably other examples of ‘Five themes’ that you can think of, and I won’t name them all.  It is for you to decide what you will do!

 

Use your imagination – and participate to the CHALLENGE OF FIVE.  It's a year-long challenge,, so you have plenty of time to present your story. 

 

So far, since 2006, two one-shots stories and two series have been posted.  At least one more story should be  needed to complete the "Challenge of Five", in celebration of the Five year anniversary of the Spectrum Headquarters site!  \

 

Do you have a story that fills the requirement for the Challenge of Five?  If you think so, please send your submission or contact the webmaster at spectrum_hq@hotmail.com.

 

Can you answer the Challenge?

 

TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CHALLENGE:

Rules and conditions:

As always, the same general rules as with all previous and still running fan fiction challenges apply.  They are as follows:

Remember that all the information presented on the Spectrum Headquarters site can serve as tool to help you write your story, whenever you need useful details for it.  If there is a question the site does not answer, feel free to write me.  The question will be submitted to the website collaborators.  If you are a member of the Spectrum Headquarters forum, you are also free to use the Fan Fiction section for help!

As always, submitted projects will be presented on this page.

Authors who have presented one story or more in the past are invited as well to participate to this challenge, as they're in part responsible for the success of the Fan Fiction section of this site!

People interested in contributing or having any questions or comments,  can contact  the webmaster at spectrum_hq@hotmail.com.
