FFVIII 100 Word Challenge
One Word. 100 Words
|Name:||Final Fantasy VIII 100 Word Challenge|
|Theme:||Final Fantasy VIII 100 word challenges|
|Location:||Balamb Garden, Canada|
|About:||A 100-word Drabble challenge community for Final Fantasy VIII|
Ideas and text taken from the InsaneJournal Community ffvii_100 - Thank You!! The majority, as in almost all, text here is from the Final Fantasy VII 100 Word Challenge info page. The maintainers yohjideranged & guiltyred said everything perfectly. I did make a few changes as to where it pertained to FFVIII.
Everyone welcome; lurkers, occasional posters and weekly contributers all. The idea is just to get people writing more short Final Fantasy VIII pieces.
Everything is welcome - gen, shounen-ai, yuri and yaoi. If you aren't comfortable with that, then please don't read it.
As your mother probably says "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." No flames, no snide bitchiness, no impoliteness. Constructive criticism is welcome and might be asked for. Please make sure it is constructive criticism, not just criticism. The List Maintainer will delete or screen any feedback they consider off.
To make it a little more exciting, for every successful drabble (on topic, exactly 100 words), you receive ten (10) points to the team of your choice - Balamb, Trabia and Galbadia Gardens or Esthar.
You can change your allegiance weekly, as you like, but you may only choose one team per post. You don't have to choose the team for the characters you write about in the drabble. The winning team doesn't get anything other than the satisfaction of knowing they beat the others - which can be pretty nice at times.
► The Drabbles for this Comm are 100 words exactly. Online Word Counter. (if you use html when you check, sometimes Office/Word counts the html as actual words!) If you run over or under the word count by a few words, you can still post, but no team points will be awarded. Random checks are done.
► Prose drabbles only. No songs or poetry or similar. Anything like that will be deleted, unless it part of the the Prompt.
► No off-topic posts allowed. Anything off-topic will be deleted. Sorry.
► Challenges are closed and new ones posted on Monda, normally at 11:59pm. Time Zones can be an utter bitch. Mod is in Canada/US Central (GMT -6 on a world map). A world time zone map might be handy, just in case you're not sure of the time difference.
Of course, if the new Challenge hasn't been put up, you still have time to post your drabble!
► Everything is welcome - gen, shounen-ai, yuri and yaoi.
► NO CROSSOVERS We will occasionally have specific challenges for that, but until those come up, stick to the Final Fantasy VIII world and cast of characters, please.
► No AUs. This is a Final Fantasy VIII community and this is out of context. If you are uncertain at all, please contact a moderator. You will be asked to delete unrecognizable AUs. Again, we may like them, but they aren't within the purview of this community. - There will be Prompts for this!
► Original characters are okay, as long as they are not the focus of the drabble. There is probably a Prompt for OC's specifically. So get your Mary/Gary-Sue's ready!
► All drabbles must stand alone. So no chaptered drabbles. You can call them parts of a whole, but they must be readable and understandable individually, by themselves. If you want, put a link in your post so people can read the previous ones!
► Please do not number your drabbles, either as a name or a link. To indicate it's part of a series is fine, but each drabble must have its own title (i.e. xxxxseries 3: name of drabble). Otherwise it's confusing and I don't need to be confused. It's like "Don't feed the animals" only, "Don't confuse your Mod."
► There is no limit to the number of drabbles you may post per week. SRS.
► Please LJ-cut your drabbles if you post more than two at a time, leaving the header information out of the cut. If you fail at LJ-cuts, then just make it a Members Only post. (Yes, it has happened.)
If your drabble contains sensitive or explicit material,* squick or character death, it must be behind cut tags.
► Post the drabble to the community, not just a link to your LJ or another community. This is so that if you should for some reason decide to delete your LJ or the other Comm gets deleted, we still have the post.
► New challenge topics can be suggested in the new challenge post on Monday, or The Suggestion Box or by sending an e-mail to the community moderator: via LJ messages or
* Please note: the policy regarding same-sex pairings is that they are equal with opposite-sex pairings. We don't ask you to LJ-cut your drabble just because it contains a same-sex pairing if the rating doesn't warrant it. It supports prejudice to differentiate. Sensitive or explicit material for either type of pairing should be LJ-cut.
Challenges will be stored in the Memories/Tags section after each challenge is closed. Your Mod tries to stay on top of this - if it's not done, it hasn't been ignored.
Drabble titles don't count, words like 'a' and 'the' do. Hyphenated words can be considered as one or more, depending on what works for you.
If you don't use the correct posting format we will ignore those drabbles as ineligible for points. Posts should look like this:
Title of Drabble. If multiple drabbles are posted, list all titles like One / Two / Three. Untitled drabbles should have Untitled [and #]. If there are too many, write the number of drabbles. VERY IMPORTANT!
Header Information in post for drabbles
Title: Title of drabble again.
Characters/Pairings: If it is a surprise, write "surprise".
Rating: If it's under PG-13 don't worry about it. If you do need it, please follow This Rating. I have a strong hate for all others.
Team: Your team - Balamb, Trabia, Galbadia Gardens or Esthar.
Word Count: Hopefully 100. You only need to do this one once per post if all drabbles are 100 words
Author's Notes: Optional unless necessary. Subject matter warnings and anything else you have to say.
Body of drabble goes here.
