People of all fandoms are invited to participate and couples of all orientations are welcome. Neither homophobia nor heterophobia will be tolerated.

Feel free to join just to enjoy the fanworks, but don't be intimidated. Writers and artists of all levels are welcome to participate.

How It Works


(rules ripped from 30_kisses)

[x] Claims: You (and up to one other collaborator) may claim up to two [2] couples at a time. The only caveat is that they must be from two different fandoms. Please note that if you claim two couples, you are committing yourself to complete all thirty themes for each of the two couples. When a couple is claimed, it counts for both writing and art. No one is required to do both, but it's definitely encouraged.

[x] Specifics: Original characters, original stories, crossovers between two fandoms, AU stories, RPS, and songfics are all acceptable. Icons and/or banners are not. (Try iconfiend100 for things such as that.)

[x] Request: at this post with the subject line "distraction request". Make sure you include the full names of both characters and the fandom that they are from. (And please check the list of claimed couples first to make sure they aren't already taken.) The claims list will be updated at least once a week, maybe even quicker. I'd like to try and get back with everyone ASAP.

[x] Done!: When you are done with a couple or decide that you can't/don't want to finish, please leave a comment in this entry. You cannot request a transfer of your couple to another person but someone else is free to request it as soon as you drop it.

[x] Posting: Only fic/art may be posted to this community. (Advertisements for other communities are absolutely not tolerated.) You may use fake cuts, but you must have the correct subject and header information as well as a link to it's actual location.

[x] Archives: All entries are archived once a week. Please let two weeks pass before notifying us of a missing memory. If you do not want your entry archived, please state so in the header.

____ The Idea


[x] Order: Themes do not have to be written in any particular order.

[x] Interpretation: Feel free to interpret each theme however you wish. Nothing special is required to be in the story itself. You're just using the themes.

[x] Style: The style of your entries is completely up to you. For authors, it can be as short as a paragraph, or as long as a multi-chaptered novel. For artists, it can be a full watercolor or the five-minute sketch you did before class. All that's important is capturing the feeling of the theme.

[x] Works in Progress: You may submit works that are in progress, but please don't make a habit of submitting works that you've already finished and made public.



____ Posting


[x] Format: When you post, please use the following format:

Subject line:
Title (fandom, pairing, challenge #)
For example, the subject line for my drabble for challenge #07 (hug; tackle; glomp) would be: All You Have to Do is Ask (Inuyasha, Inuyasha x Sango, #07). Note: I'm not going to be too picky about subject lines. Just keep the entries fanfic/fanart related. :)

Title:
Author/Artist:
Pairing:
Fandom:
Theme: (include the # and the theme)
Disclaimer: (yes, you need one every time! unless you're doing your own original work, in which case I'd suggest including a claimer.) IF YOUR FANDOM INVOLVES REAL PEOPLE, your disclaimer MUST state that your fanworks are purely fictional and do not imply any actual relationship or event.
Spoiler warnings are a must, too!

[x] LJ-cut: Anything longer than a paragraph and ALL artwork must be put behind an LJ-cut.

[x] Ratings: All ratings are welcome, but anything of an R or higher rating must be clearly marked as such in front of the LJ-cut.

[x] Plagiarism: will absolutely not be tolerated.

[x] Feedback: is encouraged. Please state the type of feedback that you're looking for as well.
