What can I claim?
A character, pairing, thresome/moresome, or a group of characters. Any fandom is welcome. If you're not sure if what you want is allowable, just ask.
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 that means you have to write all of them together. 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?
Two people can claim any specific thing at one time for each table. However, if two people already have Gil Grissom that doesn't mean people can't claim Gil/Sara or Nick/Warrick or anything else they fancy or you can pick a different table and claim Gil on that. IE two people can claim Table 1 for Gil but then no one else can claim that table for Gil until one of them is done, but you could claim Table 2 for Gil.
What's the minimum or maximum length?
At least 100 words. No word limit, write as much as you like.
What ratings are accepted here?
Any and all. Just give adequate warnings and hide anything R or above behind a cut please.
Are crossovers allowed?
Absolutely. As long as your claimed character/pairing/group is featured you can do whatever you want with them.
Is Real Person Fic allowed?
Yes it is now.
Can I use previously written fic?
No, not unless you've rewritten it.
Can I use multiple prompts for one story?
No. One prompt per story.
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 one your prompts another appropriate prompts.
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. The finished fics can of course go wherever you want.
What exactly do I have to write?
If you've claimed a letter you have to write a letter from your character for every single prompt. If you've claimed a pairing or group one of the pairing/group must be the letter writer and another must be the 'recipient' (by which I mean the person it's addressed to whethe or not they actually recieve it).
Do I have to alternate characters if I claim a pairing or group?
You don't have to have the first letter from character A and then the second letter from character B. However you must have each claimed character write at least one letter. The first eight can all be from character A if you really want as long as 9 and 10 are from characters B and C respectively (depending obviously on how many characters you have). If they're all from the same person then claim that character not a group of characters.
Do they actually have to be letters?
They have to be some form of communication akin to a letter. That can include emails or video messages (see the SGA episode Letters from Pegasus for a good example of that). It must be some form of communication from one person to another that isn't interactive ie character A has to finish their letter/email/video without the reciepient being involved in it.
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.
Where do I find the tables?
For claims of ten prompts the tables are posted to this comm and linked from the sidebar and the userinfo. For 25 or 50 prompts you need to go to and look at the prompts there.
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.
Comment here with details of your claim if you need to drop it.
This is where completed claims will be listed.
Comment here with your username, your claim, the fandom, the table you want to use, and your posting journal if different from your username.
Please make a note of your tags when you're given them, comments will be deleted as and when I get to them so they may not still be here when you come to post.Have you remembered to join? If not do it now before you claim
