FANDOM


Supernatural is a big fandom, with a lot of amazing creations, and what better way to celebrate these by giving them the love they deserve!

To achieve this goal the ProfoundBond Discord hosted the very first SPN Commentathon!

This fest aimed to get people out there and giving love to all the fan creations — some we may know and love and some we may be new to. More excitingly, just by being involved and giving these creations love you can go into the draw to win some amazing prizes!

The first round of Commentathon ran from 9-22nd July 2018.

Our FAQ is available for any questions you might have that we've already discussed. Feel free to contact us through our official tumblr if you have any additional questions or need further clarification.

Rules (2018)

Be Respectful

Please be mindful of commenting etiquette — any hate, negative or trolling comments will not be eligible and will result in disqualification from SPN Commentathon. We will be posting commenting information and guidelines on the SPN Commentathon blog — if you’re feeling nervous about commenting, anything will do! Even a little “I enjoyed this, thank you” will probably make a creators day.

Only Enter Comments in Fest Window

You do not have to have read the fics during the fest period — but you must leave your comment during the fest period. Any submissions before or after that window will be ineligible.
But 'please' tailor the comment to match the fic where possible. We want to discourage cookie cutter (or copy-paste) type comments as much as possible. It's understandable that there will be a few go-to's when you're unsure what to say, but they shouldn't all be the same or incredibly similar.

How to Play (2018)

  • The day Commentathon starts in your timezone (regardless if the submission link is yet available), you can start commenting.
  • Participants are on a hunt! We have given 67 hunt categories and it is your mission to find fics which meet the categories!
  • You will need 10 comments in ten 'different' categories for one submission/entry. That is ten different categories and one comment per category, per submission.
We already have a spreadsheet to help you keep track of your comments — though you’re welcome to record your fics in any way you see fit. To utilize our spreadsheet, go to 'File' > 'Make a Copy.' However, you will need to submit them via our application form. [The form will be made available during the fest time frame.]
  • You can enter as many times as you'd like. There is no cap.
  • If you manage to submit across all 67 categories, you will receive a bonus entry for getting out of your comfort zone and exploring more areas of the Supernatural fandom! How awesome is that!?
  • Most importantly: have fun, spread joy, be merry.

2018 Prizes

For every 10 comments, the entree was awarded a virtual ticket. This ticket will be entered in the raffle at the end of the comment-a-thon and four winners will be awarded an art commission (courtesy of icarusinflight and the artists).

1 x commission from Migglangelus

1 x commission from Foxymoley

1 x commission from The Friendly Pigeon

1 x commission from MissAceriee
