What can I claim?
A character, pairing, thresome/moresome, group of characters, an AU that you have permission to write in (ie you created it or the creator has given you permission to claim), or a fandom. Any fandom is welcome. Original fiction is also welcome. If you're not sure if what you want is allowable, just ask, as long as it's something I can tell if it's in each scene I'm pretty flexible on what you can choose.
How many things can I claim?
There is no limit as long as you are working on them all at the same time. If you genuinely believe you can work on ten claims at the same time without neglecting any of them, who am I to stop you? You're clearly insane, but that's your problem, not mine.
Can I write with a partner?
Yes, but writing with a partner means both/all of you write every fic. No alternating.
Can I split a claim with someone else?
Yes but state that when you claim and how many fics you'll each be writing
How many people can claim something?
Only one person can claim any one thing for each table. So if you want to claim Horatio Caine and someone already has him for table one, you could claim on any of the others but would have to wait until the other person is done if you wanted table one
What's the minimum or maximum length?
At least 100 words. No word limit, write as much as you like, but these are scenes remember not entire stories.
What ratings are accepted here?
Any and all. Just give adequate warnings and hide anything R or above behind a cut please/
Are crossovers and AUs allowed?
Absolutely. As long as your claimed character/pairing/fandom is featured you can do whatever you want with them
Is Real Person Fic allowed?
Yes it is now. (NB This is a chance to the rules)
Can I use previously written fic?
No, not unless you've rewritten it. These are scenes after all not entire fics, you should be able to manage to write all new stuff.
Can I use multiple prompts for one story.
No. One prompt per scene.
What if there's a prompt I just can't write for?
Since I didn't give you any writer's choice prompts you can replace up to five of your prompts with prompts from any of the other tables.
Do I have to write them in order?
Can I apply fic to more than one challenge?
It's okay with us as long as it's okay with the other community that you're writing for, although I don't know of many other challenges that deal in scenes. The finished fics can of course go wherever you want.
Does my character/pairing/fandom have to be in the story?
Yes, that is the point
Are there any deadlines?
Deadlines? What are those? No but if you're not posting and there's a wait for the claim, I'll contact you to see if you're still interested.
Headers and cuts:
I'm not going to tell you what header you have to use, but please include all the relevant information outside the cut. ie Title, Author, Fandom, Pairing, Rating and Warnings. Put the fic behind a cut or use a fake cut to your own journal if you want.
Please make sure you give the proper warnings for anything that might disturb people. If you want to put them at the bottom of the fic to avoid spoilers that's fine as long as you make it clear that's what you're doing and how to find them.
I'll give you a tag when your claim is approved. Please try to use them. Make a note of the tag because I delete comments to the claims post periodically.
