The Rules:

1. Can I write an AU for the challenge? No. The challenge is to combine the two sets of canon without changing either of them, timeframes included.
2. Can I write an x-over with a show not listed? No. One of these 11.
3. Can I write RPS about the actors for this challenge? No. As much I heart and enjoy the RPS, this challenge is about the characters on the shows.
4. Wait, wait, teen and anyone else? Clarify, please? One of the characters in the x-over must be a teen. But the other x-over playa can be a teen or an adult. As in, Sheriff Valenti of Roswell/Sandy or Kirsten Cohen from the OC - not for this challenge. Sheriff Valenti of Roswell/Seth Cohen from the OC or Sheriff Valenti of Roswell/Summer Roberts from the OC - totally okay for this challenge.
5. Are you calling Lex Luthor from Smallville a teen or an adult for this challenge? The twice-married owner of his own business? We're counting him as a teen. According to some canon, he's only a little bit older than the kids from Dawson's Creek.
6. Can I write a threesome for this challenge? No.
7. Can I write more than one x-over pairing? One pairing per story, but feel free to write more than one story.
8. Is it just the main-credits characters to use for the challenge? Nope. Recurring characters are up for grabs, as it were - as long as they've appeared in more than one episode and had a little more dialogue than that guy who plays guitar in the band! The fellow football player who only says 'let's beat up that guy!' every other week! Not them. But other recurring characters, your Sean and Brody from Roswell, your Oliver and Anna from the OC, your Drue and Doug from Dawson's Creek? Please, please do.
9. Will you host the story? No. Only linking. We'll link to lj entries, archives, whatever.
10. What about the people who've died? Oh, the beloved dead. As long as the story is set before their untimely demise, they're up for the challenge.
11. When you say 'canon,' what about the Dawson's Creek finale set in 2008? If you're using Dawson's Creek characters, you can set the story before or after that finale, but for this challenge, you can't disregard those events.
12. How many people can write an x-over pairing? Only two. We'll be updating the page with the pairings people sign-up for, if the pairing is bolded, two people have signed up for it, and it's no longer available.
13. Slash or het? All of it. m/m, f/f, m/f. Whatever floats your boat and you want to write.
14. Can I slash two different characters played by the same actor? No.
15. If I finish before July 28th, can I post then? We want to unveil all the stories on the same day, so please wait until July 28th. If you finish after that, post as soon as you're done and drop a line to us, we'll add your link to the page.
16. Do they have to have sex in the story for this challenge? The characters have to meet face to face at least once, have to at least kiss and/or sexual groping. Everything else is up to you.
17. Is futurefic okay? Yes.
