Welcome Post 2014

Welcome back, everyone!
As you can tell from this post, we shall be having Adventdrabbles again this year! *g*

For those who may be new to the com, we are open during the Advent season and we welcome submission related to all fandoms, all pairings, genfic, art, whatever you'd like to contribute. You can see the fandoms we already list at our Welcome Post, where, incidentally, you'll also find the rules (such at they are). If you have any new fandoms you'd like added to our list, please comment on that post and I shall take care of it.

Once again, we'll be operating in the same way this year as we have every other year. The plan? Write/draw/create for any fandom/original characters/rpf and post. That's all. The prompt I put up are just to inspire, if you already know what you want to do, feel free to ignore our suggestions. The whole idea is to HAVE FUN during Advent!

Later today I'll put up a post where anyone is welcome to leave prompt ideas. Its responses will be screened. Then, on the first day of Advent, I'll post the Advent Tree with prompt 1 and we'll be off and running. :) Because many of our members are in the UK, for the purposes of our com, I post new prompts as close as possible to midnight GMT, which means the first one will go up this Sunday at 6pm my time.

As always, we encourage you to Xpost your creations to IJ and DW as well, where our sister communities (run by the fabulous [info]beren_writes) reside.

Clear as mud? Awesome.
Any questions, please ask, and I hope we have lots of participation and fun this year!
Let's all have a fabulous time!

As it is every year, this community is open to all fandoms, so if there's something you'd like to see here that we don't already have listed, all you need to do is comment to our welcome post and I'll add it. I will also add any disclaimers for new fandoms to our Disclaimers Post, so be sure to comment to that post as well.

Our tag elf, [info]torino10154, has already added the 2010 tags (she's so much more efficient than I am, lol) which should make it easy to keep track of this year's posts.

In a a few minutes I'll be putting up this year's prompt ideas post (screened) so you all can give me your ideas for this year's Advent Calendar.

2009 Welcome Post

Hello, friends!

*clear cobwebs from corners*

This is just a quick note to let you know that I am planning on hosting Advent Drabbles again this year. For those who are new, please to be checking out the Welcome and Rules Post in which is outlined the idea behind this com as well as the fandoms we are currently accepting.

This community is open to all fandoms, so if something you'd like to see here is missing, all we need is for you to do is comment to that welcome post and I'll add it. I will also need to add any new disclaimers to our Disclaimers Post, so be sure to comment to that post as well.

This year I'll be adding a new tag: 2009. That's so we can keep track of this year's posts.

In a day or so (after Thanksgiving in the US - *glares at [info]torino10154*) I'll be putting up this year's prompt ideas post (screened) so you all can give me ideas for prompts for this year's Advent Calendar. *g*

Also, I'd appreciate it you'd spread the word about the com. The more playing the merrier!

Are we ready for Advent?

*clears cobwebs and dusts off community*

I've had a couple of inquiries about whether or not I plan to run [info]adventdrabbles again this year and the answer is an unequivocal yes!
So, FYI, the plan is to run the community in much the same way as last year. I'll provide optional daily prompts for those who need inspiration, and it'll be a place for everyone to post drabbles/ficlets/drawbles as they see fit in any fandom of choice.
In a couple of days I'll repost the rules and the list of current fandoms so you can tell me what fandoms to add this year, and so we can expand the list of appropriate disclaimers. ;)

In the meantime, get ready to adventdrabble!

Welcome!

Welcome one and all.


This community is a multi-fandom for those who want to play the drabble game or do drawbles for Advent/December. It is modelled after the live journal community of the same name created by [info]beren_writes with her permission.

Fandoms included thus far (now alphabetized, thanks to [info]bonfoi): 30 seconds to Mars, Alex Rider, Angel, Anita Blake, Arrow, Avatar, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Ballet Shoes, Batman (Nolanverse), Black Lagoon, Bleach, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Captain America, Chalion, Conviction, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who, Dracula, ER, Firefly, Gakuen Heaven, Glam RPF, Glee, Good Omens, Gravitation, Gundam Wing, Harry Potter, Highlander, Hikaru No Go, History Boys, Iron Man, Jane Austen, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Jrock rps, Letocest, Lord of the Rings, Law and Order SVU, Love it or List it, NCIS, Oz, Penny Dreadful, Pirates of the Caribbean, Queer as Folk, Saiunkoku Monogatari, Saiyuki, Sanctuary, Sharing Knife, Sherlock, Silent Hill, Star Trek, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, Supernatural, Swordspoint, Teen Wolf, Temeraire, The Avengers, The Bible, The Black Jewels 'verse, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Flash, The Hulk, The Vorkosigan saga, The Walking Dead, The West Wing, Third Watch, Thor, Torchwood, Twilight, Walking Dead, Weiss Kreuz, White Collar, Women of the Otherworld, World War Z, and X-Files.

More are always welcome!



drabble: a short story of exactly 100 words (but we won't shoot you if you want to just go with short stories either :)).
drawble: a piece of art or sketch taking between ten and twenty minutes to complete (but again, art in all forms is appreciated, no matter how long you spend on it. ;))

General Idea

Write 24 drabbles/short stories, draw 24 drawbles, or do any combination of the two, and post them one a day throughout December in the run up to Christmas. You don't have to be Christian or celebrate Christmas to play; just go with a Wintery theme if it suits you better.

Rules

01. Be nice to the other members, flames will not be tolerated
02. Please place all R or NC-17 rated drabbles/drawbles behind an lj cut
03. All other drabbles/drawbles may be posted as is since they are so short
04. Please use the following template, or something similar when posting your drabbles/drawbles:

Subject line: Day, Fandom, Pairing, Title (if it has one)
- e.g. Dec01, Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, Mistletoe Madness
Main body of post:
Title: (if it has one)
Fandom:
Pairing:
Rating:

05. Please tag your drabbles/drawbles using a tag of your LJ name and the day in this format: Dec01, Dec02 etc. Once you have posted your first entry I will add a tag for you with your name and tag that entry for you and you will be able to tag your own entries from then on. The day tags have already been created (you just may not be able to see them in the tag list so you will need to type them in). The tags will make it easy for a reader to access all of your drabbles or drawbles at once or all for a day. If you have any problems with the tags just ask and I will be happy to help.

06. Because this is a drabble/drawble comm, the disclaimers may be bigger than the contents of the posts, therefore there is a Disclaimers post. If you are posting for a fandom not yet listed please comment on the Disclaimers post with your usual discalimer and it will be added to the main post. (If you would rather post your disclaimers with your entries you are most welcome to, this is just an idea for a short cut.)

Notes:
You may post more than one drabble or drawble a day if you would like.
You may post in as many fandoms as you like.
You may post in fandoms other people are posting in.

This comm is open to all who would like to play, and don't worry if you can't do all 24 31 stories (we post prompts throughout December) or drawings, just do your best, this is all so we can have fun.

If you will be posting for a fandom that is not listed in the interests then drop me a note and I'll add it in.

And above all, enjoy yourselves! :)
