The Profound Robin is a Round Robin writing challenge hosted on #ProfoundBond. Round Robin is defined as a story where each installment is by a different author.
The Profound Robin is a writing exercise meant to challenge and push the boundaries of the participants. Each week a different author takes their turn to tell the next chapter of a story. The goal is to knit the individual chapters together to create a cohesive fiction. Each round of the ProfoundRobin has a different goal and theme meant to challenge the participants. These may include but are not limited to: a minimum and maximum word count per chapter.
At the conclusion of the sign-up period, all registered participants are randomized and assigned a posting date. Each week a new chapter, created by a different author, will be posted on A03. The next author in line has one week to read, review, and write their instalment and post it on Ao3. From there the process begins again until all authors have participated and the fiction comes to a conclusion.
Sign-ups for Round 1 started on January 10th, 2018. The signups were conducted by casually gauging interest on the ProfoundBond Discord chatrooms.
Destimushi began this round; the theme was an AU (or Alternate Universe) revolving around the use of themes or quotes from the movie The Princess Bride. Participants were challenged to write a maximum of 1000 words per chapter and were given a one-week time frame in which to do so.
Round 1 began posting on January 26th, 2018 and continued to post weekly on Ao3 until it concluded on April 10th, 2018.

Due to the nature of Round Robins, sometimes we don't always manage to wrap up in our expected amount of chapters. This round robin is still on-going and there is talk about it continuing on just a little longer, based on how the next few chapters come out, so that we can sort out the plot before the end. Originally, it was only supposed to have 13 chapters.
