Rules and Requirements
We do have a few rules and requirements for Chromatic Vision, to make the challenge fun and smooth for both the mods and participants.
Our biggest rule is that a significant portion of the fannish work must focus on said character of color, whether in a gen setting or as part of a pairing. What this means is that, as an example, if you sign-up for Blaise Zabini from Harry Potter, he cannot be a secondary character to a fic about Harry/Severus. Nor can, as an example, it be a fic of Daphne's POV from Queer As Folk musing about Brian/Justin's relationship. If you have any questions concerning this, please contact the mods.
Warnings are suggested on all headers when needed (Major Character Death, Underage, Rape/Non-Con, Graphic Depictions of Violence), or at the very least "No warnings." If you do not wish to warn for any of the top four, you can Choose Not To Warn instead. You may add warnings and/or contains for other things, but that is at your discretion. If you are using kinks in your fannish works, it is suggested to add them to your header.
Requirements for Works:
Ficlet (100-500 words)
Fic (500+ words, multi-chapter fics also accepted. No works in progress)
Drabble (exactly 100 words)
Drabbles (min. 5 drabbles, 100 words each)
Meta (min 500 words)
Art (at the artist's discretion)
Icons (min 5 icons)
Vids/Trailers (Trailer 1 minute, Vid over 2:50)
Picspams (min 5 pictures)
Poetry (at the poet's discretion)
Podfics (at the podficcer's discretion, remember to ask permission to record podfics that weren't written by you)
Recs (min 5 recs featuring characters of color, can be of any fannish work)
If you are based off-IJ or wish the mods to host, whether temporary or permanently, your fannish works, we do have some formatting rules. Always email the header you wish to use along with the work. Don't forget your name!
If it is a fic, please send it in txt files with no SmartQuotes, a singular space between paragraphs/dialogue lines, and with basic html already in place (html for italics, bold).
If it is art or icons, please also send your sample picture (the first thing viewers will see before they click to the rest of the post) or indicate what 3 icons you want viewers to see first. If this isn't done, the mods will decide themselves.
