The Lifeboat: Pan-Fandom RPG

All Characters, All Fandoms Welcome

Twin Moons THE END
The earth is gone.

A year and a half ago you, and the rest of the world, learned that everything you thought you knew about the world, the galaxy and the universe . . . was wrong. We aren't alone in the universe and while all the aliens out there weren't out to get us, there were more than a few who were.

In the mass hysteria and martial law following the revelation, other information leaked out: the earth was under attack, the survival of humanity was at risk and the world powers had secret plans in place to save a remnant of the population and save humanity from certain extinction.

You were one of the few, either chosen by your rank and station or randomly via lottery, to go through the stargate, an advanced alien device that afforded nearly simultaneous transportation between worlds, to a lifeboat colony. There, alongside 7500 others, you would begin to rebuild human civilization.
You are part of the remnant of earth's population, surviving and rebuilding at the lifeboat colony known as Gamma Site. Though earth is gone, there is a stargate at your disposal and thousands of unexplored worlds at your fingertips.

[ profile] the_lifeboat is a post-apocalyptic panfandom game based in the Stargate universe.
Twelve months ago, the world as you know it changed. The Stargate Program went public and the population of the world learned that aliens were real and that the earth had been in contact with them.

Eleven months ago, unknown to the public, a devastating threat hung over the earth. Secret lifeboat colonies were created and those lucky enough to be chosen migrated to these safe sites via the stargate.

Seven months ago, an unknown hostile alien species destroyed the earth's sun, and earth as you knew it was gone.
You are part of the remnant of earth's population, surviving and rebuilding at the lifeboat colony named Gamma Site. Though earth is gone, there is a stargate at your disposal and thousands of unexplored worlds at your fingertips.

Fic: Distorted Reflections

Title: Distorted Reflections
Authors: [ profile] lizardbeth_j and LoriWright
Fandoms: Stargate SG-1 and Jeremiah
Rating: R (violence, language)
Category: Gen Adventure Novel
Characters: Season 7 SG-1, including Jack, alternate versions of other SG-verse characters (including Goa'uld and Tok'ra), and all the characters of Jeremiah.
No pairings (well, okay, Markus/Meaghan, but that's about as gen a pairing as you can get)

While searching for the Lost City, SG-1 is trapped on a strange and frightening alternate Earth. Fifteen years ago a plague decimated the Earth, killing the adults and leaving the children to fend for themselves. Now those children have grown up and a war is brewing over who will control the future. Sam, Jack, Daniel, and Teal'c are going to have to fight, risking everything, if they have a chance to find their way home.

This is a crossover between Stargate SG-1 and Jeremiah, however, you do NOT need to be familiar with Jeremiah to read it.

This novel is complete and edited. The first twelve chapters are up at its community, [ profile] distortd_ref, which completes the first story arc. I'll post at least a chapter a week (though usually two) each Wednesday until it's done. To keep spamming to a minimum, I won't post notices of updates here. Please watch [ profile] distortd_ref if you'd like updates.

Start here with Notes and Acknowledgments or jump straight to Chapter 1

This has been a labor of love for us, for quite a long time. So please come and check it out!

Multifandom Challenge: Small and Fuzzy During an Apocalypse

Multifandom Challenge: Small and Fuzzy During an Apocalypse

It's spring! The sun is shining, the birds are nesting, and I don't have to wear 20 layers to go outside. I love spring. You know what spring makes me think of? Bunnies. And puppies! And the end of the world (nothing like a springtime apocalypse, I always say).

So - isn't spring a great time to have a Small and Fuzzy During an Apocalypse Challenge? I think yes! Although, it's possible I have a vested interest.

This challenge is about fuzzy (and possibly small) creatures and an end of the world scenario (or a post-apocalyptic one). How you include small fuzzy creatures is up to you! It could be in passing (Daniel mentions a legend involving puppies of the apocalypse?); they could be central to the story (zoonotic infections, anyone?); penguins could take over the world. So many possibilities! Funny or grim, whatever strikes your fancy. Go nuts!

For more information (including about where to post fic/links so I can compile a masterlist), please go here!

Challenge will close next Monday, April 2nd (I'm not going to post a time - if it's still Monday, April 2nd somewhere, that's good enough for me).

I'm crossposting on some of the communities that I'm on, but if anyone wants to post it elsewhere/pimp on their own journals, please, please, please do!

Jeremiah Ficathon Pimpage!

For anyone who might be interested, there are three days left for signups for a Jeremiah Ficathon. Signups close Feb 20.

Signups HERE.


Please join if you're interested, we could use more writers (and more fic)!

SGA Fic: Five Ways the World Ends

Five Ways The World Ends by Kyizi

Stargate Atlantis is not mine.
Spoilers: No spoilers except a few minor S2 characters
Pairings/Ships: Only very vaguely hinted at and really not relevant to the story. I also doubt you'll figure them out. They'll possibly be explored further when if I write more.
Notes: [ profile] loriel_eris tormented me with loads of prompts for the 'Five Things' Meme and was adamant she was getting apocafic. This wasn't what she had in mind, but she loved it anyway.
Summary: One world. Five People.

( Five Ways the World Ends )

FIC: Strange Love (Gilmore Girls, PG-13)

Yes. You read that fandom right. It's Gilmore Girls apocafic. I have an excuse! Honest!

Strange Love
by Shaye

Every day is like Sunday.


DISCLAIMER: Sherman Palladino & CW own everything except the summary, which is all Morrissey.

TIMELINE: Set mid-season five.


NOTES: Going on two years ago, [ profile] gatefiction pretty much dared me to write Gilmore Girls apocafic. This is what happened. Beta by [ profile] leadensky and[ profile] annavtree, who may well be wondering where this story got to. Thanks, ladies, and I apologize for those places where I totally ignored your suggestions.

post-apocalyptic Veronica Mars fic

More post-apocalyptic fic! This time, I'm remixing an end-of-the-world-via-killer-flu scenario. Veronica Mars fandom, main focus on Cindy "Mac" Mackenzie and Dick Casablancas.

( Dark Places Where Monsters Dwell (Secrets and Lies Remix) )

Firefly fic (link): Pieces tossed aside (R)

Title: Pieces tossed aside
Rating: R
Words: 9230
Characters: Mal, crew. A touch of Mal/Simon and Kaylee/Jayne, although I would consider this genfic more than anything.
Summary: Paquin goes radio silent. Everywhere else follows. AU. Set after the TV series.

Notes: I owe huge thanks to [ profile] greenapricot and [ profile] lyrstzha for beta reading, patience and general hand-holding! Thank you so much for the encouragement! All remaining errors are my own.


Harry Potter apocific

Title: Time of No Reply
Fandom: Harry Potter

( The only difference between walking and falling is that the next foot follows the first. )

SG1 apocafic

'Cause [ profile] cofax7 said I should.

Title: Hold the Lullabies
Rating: R
Classification: Angst, drama, smidge of Sam/Daniel, even smaller smidge of implied Sam/Jack.
Spoilers: Everything through season 8.
Warning: This is an apocafic, so there's angst 'n death 'n stuff.
Notes: My eternal thanks to [ profile] splash_the_cat and [ profile] mrv3000 for enduring multiple drafts, endings, titles, and overwhelmed authorial flailings. Title and summary are from "Look Up" by Stars.

Summary: So far, keeping it together's been enough.

Slayers, zombies, and the wreckage

*waves* If you're looking for a glimpse of a post-Buffyverse world gone awry, I've just written Eleven Hours at the End of the World. An original-character slayer, some zombies, and one possible future... what can go wrong? Spoils "Chosen" and "Not Fade Away".

Two Firefly ficlets (slash)


I wrote a couple of 'end of the world' Firefly ficlets (well, end of their world, anyway). They're behind the fake cuts!

Jayne, Simon
No movie spoilers

And, its prequel (but written afterwards)

Signs of Life
Summary: It starts like this.
