Ever wanted to stick your favourite characters in a Shakespeare tragedy to see what they'd do? Ever wondered how Hamlet or Taming of the Shrew would translate in your fandom? Ever thought about one of your muses reciting one of Bill's famous soliloquies? Then you've come to the right place. The Pan-Fandom Shakespeare Ficathon is, as it sounds, a fest for all people from all fandoms, and gives you an opportunity to test out your writing skills and to have fun mixing worlds. Whether you choose to write a pastiche, throw characters from two worlds together, or just use the Bard's genius as inspiration, everything is welcome here. And they do say Shakespeare is the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
