Hi all,

We've had a couple of posts promoting other communities recently. Technically they don't fill the charter for [community profile] symbrock as they are not fanworks about Eddie and/or Venom, even if they are open to Venom related fan works.

So, do you want them? Are they useful content to you, or should I be using my Moderation button and deleting them?

Poll #21720 Do you want promo posts for other communities?
This poll is anonymous.

Should promo posts for other communities be allowed in Symbrock?

This post is the place to post anything to do with new beginnings and Symbrock, including prompts, brainstorming, comment fic or art, and so forth.

You can interpret "new beginnings" in any way you like, from Easter to goo!preg and anything else you desire.

Have fun!

Hi everyone,

I know it's been a bit quiet around here lately. It's hit that time of the semester where it's all marking all the time. It's a bit frustrating as I have many languishing WIPs, including one for the March Fractured Fairy Tale Challenge, but that's how it is sometimes. I'm sure you all know what that's like too.

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge. Our theme for the first half of April is New Beginnings. This can include things like Easter, kid!fic, goo!preg, or things like a hot new scoop/job/romance. As long it's related to a new beginning for Eddie and/or Venom in some way, anything goes.

I'm going to post a separate thread in a moment for brainstorming, as usual, but this time I'm also going to open it up to comment fic, or short poetry, rough sketches and so forth. Anything you can fit in a comment is fair game. Hopefully that means that even with life being a bit full-on at the moment, we can share a few snippets and have some fun that way.

Go forth and multiply!!!

In the second half of April, we're going to have an Amnesty, in which any works made and not finished for any of our challenges so far can be licked into shape and posted.

Multifandom Poetry Fest

This seems like a low-key event, and I'd love to see more familiar fandoms in the prompts.

What kind of poetry does a journalist write? What kind of poetry does an alien write? I'd be curious to know.

This post is a place for discussing ideas you have for anything to do with fairy tales and Symbrock. For instance:
  • A particular fairy tale you want to see remixed for this pairing
  • Trying to figure out how to Symbrock-ify a fairy tale
  • Your fave fairy tales, why you like them, or why you think they suit Symbrock
  • Your head-canons of fairy tales Venom might tell
  • etc

Thanks to everyone who took part in the Poll about what our March challenge should be. Fairy Tales clearly won, but there were also quite a few people who chose "All of the Above." So we'll do Fairy Tales for March, and some other kind of general remix challenge later in the year.

The Rules

Pick any fairy tale of your choice -- see below for inspiration -- or make one up. If you think it's a fairy tale, it counts as one for the purposes of this challenge. You can also remix more than one fairy tale in the same fanwork if you wish, in the style of Shrek.

Once you've picked a fairy tale/s, remix in some way to make it about Eddie and/or Venom. Any kind of fanwork is welcome -- art, vids, fiction, playlist, meta, etc.

Post your fractured fairy tale any time in March and share it here on the [community profile] symbrock  community.


The person who posts the most fractured fairy tales in March can choose our next challenge, if they so wish, with the proviso that I might tweak it a little to fit better into our community's ethos.

Inspiration Bank

These resources are not definitive -- you can choose a fairy tale not included in any of these archives, or make up your own. This is just a place to start if you're looking for ideas. Please add links in comments if you have suggestions for more resources.

List of Fairy Tales on Wikipedia
Fairy Tales, Folk Tales & Mythology (public domain downloadable e-books)
The Public Domain Review's fairy tale books list (includes indigenous folk tales from a variety of sources)
Fairy Tales of the World
Grimm's Fairy Tales
Hans Christian Andersen

Have fun fracturing your fairy tales!

I was just looking at my wip file, and realised I never crossposted this series here, as I wrote most of them before the community was created. 

These stories stand alone, although they do chronologically and thematically follow each other. I have two more planned to finish off this particular 'verse.

Series Title: Role Confusion
Characters/Pairing: Eddie & Venom
Rating: PG-13 so far

1. Food/Trust 
Venom is hungry. Eddie provides.

2. Compromised
Venom learns to want; Venom learns to ask.

3. Here be Monsters 
Venom confesses his sins.

I've been thinking about what kind of event to run here in [community profile] symbrock  during March, and have decided that we're going to do a remix challenge. That is, we shall create Symbrock fanworks that are fusions/crossovers/inspired by the tropes of a well known genre.
But then I couldn't pick a genre. I do love fannish reworkings of romcoms and fairy tales, but there's so much more -- Harlequins? Detective novels? Musicals?

I mean, can't you just see Murder On the Orient Express subverted by head-chomping aliens? Or Harlequins, oh god, Harlequins! Can you imagine Eddie as a war bride for the conquering Klyntar prince Venom?

A Saxon maiden, bound to a Viking warrior...
The conquering Danes have taken everything from Elswyth - even her mother. So, despite the uneasy truce between their people, she knows where her loyalties lie. Until she meets towering Rolfe, leader of the opposing forces. Her mind knows this muscled Viking is her enemy. So why is her traitorous body so tempted by his suggestion that she become his wife?
It almost writes itself, am I right?

Anyway, I was torn, so maybe you should pick. Time for a poll!

Tell me what you think we should remix, and I shall dutifully put together a set of links to summaries of works in that genre as inspiration.

In the rules for the fest, I said that people taking part had to wait 2 weeks before crossposting their works anywhere else. I'm not sure why I made it two weeks. I'm thinking that one week is enough.

So, if you took part in Venomtime's Day, you are now free to post your work anywhere else you like. 

Be free, my pretties!!!! :)

I also want to say to those viewing the fest -- thank you for all your comments and kudos. It's made the fest a lot of fun. If you haven't yet checked it out, please do, and leave a comment or kudos if you're that way inclined.

Hi all,

Sorry for the late notice on this, as I didn't think to make a post here before now. There's a [community profile] space_swap  exchange that's relevant to our Venom interests, and it's closing for sign-ups in 8 hours.

Venom is one of the fandoms you can offer or request, for fanfiction, fan art, fan vids, and podfics.

However, there's currently a problem with not enough character tags available in the Venom fandom to enable sign-up -- I've pinged the mod and it should be resolved soon. So if you want to sign up with Venom as one of your fandoms, you should be able to. I'll edit this post once it's resolved.

ETA: The way around this is to offer "Any" if you choose to offer Venom fandom. What that actually means is "any of the approved tags" and the only approved tag in Venom is Symbrock, so you're all good. :)

I have posted short reviews of all the Venomtime's Day fanworks over on my journal:

They are all awesome!!!
cupidsbow: (venom comic - profile)
[personal profile] cupidsbow
The gifts are  now open, and you can find them here:

Great work, everyone. We may be small but we are feisty. I'm impressed with the range we've managed, as there's not only several stories, but art, a vid, and a playlist. 


Where to start?? What a great dilemma to have!

I'll be opening up the Venomtime's Day gifts in about two hours. If you didn't make the deadline but have a little something you want to share, now is the time to post it.
