Info on the challenge in a previous post here.

You can sign up in the comments to this post, with either 10 or 6 characters with assigned numbers, a genre to twist to (Western, Romance, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror or Crime/Thriller) and an email address (or, if you prefer, permission to send you a private message). You will then be sent a list of ten scenarios to write. You'll finish as many as you like! No deadlines.

More on the scenarios:

The characters will be assigned roles in the scenarios based on their numbers. In any of the genres except Romance there will be a maximum of one scenario with a pre-deemed pairing (though of course you can write more in), and even in that one you get to select one half of the pairing. The Romance genre has a pairing in each prompt. You don't get to select the pairings for the first 8 Romance prompts (so crack aplenty is in store), but the last three scenarios are more open.

In fact, scenario #10 (which for every genre runs as "Use any of the above scenarios with any three characters from your list") allows you to ignore all suggested character assignations and if you like, you can use that several times and so just bypass the whole thing. The assignations are there to give you ideas you might not otherwise have had and add spice to the challenge.

If you want to write romance but only hetero romance, here's keys to avoid same-sex pairings:

Romance het key for six characters:

If 4, 2, 6 = A, then

5, 3, 1 = B.

Romance het key for ten characters:

If 4, 1, 6, 10, 9 = A, then

2, 8, 3, 5, 7 = B.

After some of the scenarios there will be bracketed suggestions for the subgenre, but they are just suggestions, and your story might take the initial scenario in a completely different direction.

Edit: You can now also select the genre HORROR.
