The Die J/C Die Contest was an annual Star Trek Voyager fanfic contest for anti-Janeway/Chakotay fic, both slash and het. The contest ran in 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005.

Rules

First place: Break up J/C in any way possible, without killing either Janeway or Chakotay. J & C don't even have to be in a relationship for you to break it up. The mere notion, even an idea of J/C, is enough to warrant our fervent desire to stomp and stab it to death. The messier the J/C death, the more fun it is.

Second place: All anti-J/C pairings allowed. C/P, C/7, C/T, C/Tu, J/Tu, J/T, J/7, J/P, and so or and so forth. Threesomes, foursomes, J or C paired up with original characters. Whatever you may want to cook up, go for it.

3. Be nice. No character death stories. That means all main characters, not just J/C.

4. No cheap plot devices. No alien mind takeovers just for the sake of breaking up J/C. No instant personality transplants. No gender bender--don't turn Chakotay into a woman or Janeway into a man.

5. No male pregnancy. It's a personal bias, but we're running this thing. So there. ;)

6. No WIPs allowed. All stories submitted must be complete before submission. One author can submit up to 3 stories. Older stories are allowed if they fulfill all the requirements. Stories entered in the earlier installment of Die J/C Die cannot be entered again.

7. All ratings are allowed. NC-17, blood, violence, Angst, Hurt/comfort. Whatever strikes your fancy, feel free to try it out--as long as proper warnings are in place.

8. Stories that don't meet the criteria will be rejected. The final decision rests with the organizers. Please note there are more than one of us involved here and the decision won't be made by just one person.[1]
