____ How It Works

[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 required to do both, but it's definitely encouraged.

[x] Specifics: Original characters, original stories, OCs with fandom characters, crossovers between two fandoms, AU stories 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 "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.

[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] The Deadline: You must for your pairing at least once in every two months period. Purges of dead pairings will occur February 1, April 1, June 1, August 1, October 1 and December 1. These will be announced two weeks before the purge occurs. If you have not already requested an extension before, you can request one in these two weeks. If you fail to do so, we will release your pairing on the 1st. Claims will be closed one week before the purge and you can NOT request a new pairing until the mods announce claims are reopen. If you cannot keep up with the deadline or fail to request an extension you will lose your pairing.

[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: The missing memories page will show when the last entry was archived. Please make sure your entry was before this date 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. Just remember, a kiss must be involved. It doesn't need to be the focal point, but it must be in there one way or another. The interpretation of what constitutes a kiss, however, is entirely up to you.

[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 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 #17 (kHz) would be: Radar (CLAMP Campus Detectives, Suoh/Nokoru, #17).

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.

[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.

[x] If you have any other questions, please check out the FAQ.
