Two stories for Ancient City Bingo
McShepletGirl doesn't have a Live Journal account so I've agreed to post links to her stories.

They're both on Wraithbait.

The Hustler - Care packages from Earth provide good opportunity for hustling. But who makes the best deal?

Toast - John is not a happy man - and he knows exactly who to blame.

If you leave any messages here, I'll pass them on!

Also, there's a 'sister' comm on Dreamwidth... ask here or there!

Ancient City
If you asked for a card and didn't get it please check your spam folder, it may have ended up there.

We'll keep the porch light on for ya!

Reminder - Only 2 Days Left!
Atlantis - home
Two more days to sign up and request your Bingo card for Round 1. Sign-ups close at Midnight November 15th. We've already had an amazing response and wish everyone luck with their card. There are a lot of cool prompts out there and we're really looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with... and how many different ways you can find to fill the squares!

Just so you know, we've added recs, haiku (a series of multiple entries per prompt), and meta as means to fill your square. You can check out more about these additions in the The Rules. If you still have questions, ask them there or here in comments.


(no subject)
Ancient City
Ancient City Bingo - it's all about those stories where our hearts and imaginations want to go.

It's also a chance to bring your old SGA love and new fandom loves together, if you're so inclined. (Tony Stark in Atlantis? Yes please.)

Things we need: Please title your post, "BINGO: diagonal line" or "BINGO: blackout" or "EXTRA: postage stamp story" or "EXTRA: double line stories" or whatever combo it is that you're submitting.

Then use this template for the body of the post:

Author: (your name here)
Fandoms: (list of fandom(s)
Prompts: (list of prompts written)

title of and link to first story (fandom, pairing, prompt)
title of and link to second story (fandom, pairing, prompt)

You can include additional information (wordcounts, short summaries, etc.) if you like. Please be sure to include any and all relevant and appropriate warnings. If you like, you may post a picture of your bingo card, with X's or a line through the squares you've completed.

A number of cards have already been sent out. If you requested a card but have not received it, please check your spam folder.

And please remember when requesting your card, we need an email address in order to mail your card out to you.


Already have your card and the prompts have you scratching your head? Does your prompts say, Zzzzzzzt or Nanites R us? - and wow, that's not your typical prompt.

Remember, your bingo card is actually two prompts in one.

The first is the Ancient City of Atlantis. The second is your bingo square. Look at it sideways. Turn it upside down, shake it around a little, and see what inspiration falls out.

Still feel a little nervous, still scratching your head at that one impossible prompt?
sgamadison has created a comm for that. sga_cardplayers is a support community created specifically for those participating in Ancient City Bingo who may have a case of first-time Bingo jitters. It's a place for brainstorming and hand-holding, cheering and advice. Check it out!

(And, of course, if you have questions about the rules or procedures, or anything else pertaining to Ancient City Bingo, your mods are the ladies to ask.)

Welcome to Ancient City Bingo!
amazing mcshep fic
Ancient City Bingo is the result two fangirls’ continued love affair with all things SGA and in particular the City itself. It was one of those ideas born of a conversation between neevebrody, and myself, musing about fandom and our love of the universe created around Pegasus and the Ancient City. Remarkably, it was one of those ideas that actually got past the ‘just talking’ stage.

The concept is simple: there was so much of the City left unexplored and so much that was only hinted at. What other crazy devices did the Ancients construct? What sorts of experiments - good and bad - did they abandon? Did all the Ancients ascend? Did a few go, leaving behind work entrusted to the ‘New Lanteans’? And here’s a twist... What would happen if other fandoms found their way to the Lost City?

So, Ancient City Bingo was born. A safe harbor for every faction of fandom, a dream of many new stories that include all our favorite characters while featuring the City prominently. The stories are out there... just like all those unexplored rooms and parts of the City herself. Anything goes here - het, slash, femslash, gen, and all characters are welcome. -even original characters if you like. Crossovers with any fandom are accepted; however, the action must take place in the Ancient City.

Another twist? Fills may be accomplished by fic, drabbles and/or art, vids, vidlets, soundmixes or mini-mixes.

The one thing that will not be tolerated is any form of flaming with respect to OTPs or pairings. Another reason Ancient City Bingo was created was to be a challenge where all of SGA fandom could participate equally.

There are a few laid back Rules (and FAQ) here. And a handy Prompt List for the Free square.
