The Open-mind Pairing Challenge is a fanworks challenge created by Threshie .

The Challenge: To encourage open-mindedness in your romance fanworks (rather than being biased toward one pairing), choose a character and then draw/write them into couple pictures or fanfics with at least five other different characters, one work per pairing.


o Create at least 5 fanworks, one per pairing. (You can create MORE than 5 for one character if you like, or draw 5-pair challenges for more than one character.

o Works can be fanfiction, fanart, sculpture, cosplay, comics, textile arts--anything that can portray your chosen couples!

o Any fandom goes--anime, tv series, books, or something else, but it has to be a fandom. Sorry, no original characters/original stories, the idea is to open the minds of other fans of something you are also a fan of, and to do that it has to be something people have heard of. No offense if you create original works--I do, myself--the Challenge just has a purpose that doesn't relate to them. =)

o Shounen-ai, shoujo-ai, het, canon, alt and even crack pairings are fine. Think outside the box!

o No crossovers, please--show what variety of pairings your chosen fandom can have all on its own!

o Anybody can join the Challenge. If you've just found this, and the challenge is already underway, feel free to jump right in anyway! The more the merrier. :thumbsup:

Yep, people are just too busy with the holidays and such lately to submit as many works to the Group. =)
