Codes for Prompt Tables
To post your claimed tables in your journal, click here.
( See who's claimed what.Collapse )
Each prompt set has 25 words. New prompt sets will be provided every six months (on June 1 and December 1). Choose as many prompt sets as you want, but you must complete them all by the time the new sets are out!
Each prompt is meant to be taken as a theme. For instance, if you write on "wind", every third word doesn't have to be "wind", and actually shouldn't!
There must be a different fic for each prompt.
The current prompt sets can be found here. If you have any suggestions for words for the new prompt sets, send them to alaisiaga or crystallicrain.
Each fic must contain the marauders in a major way. You make your own canon. Aside from alternate universes and crossovers, any era and pairing is yours for the taking. However, make sure your fics do not contradict each other.
Original characters are not particularly encouraged, but they are not necessarily discouraged either. However, if she's a Mary Sue, be prepared for critical comments.
If you must provide criticism, please make sure it's constructive. Don't be mean. There's always a nice way to offer suggestions for improvement. If you point out something that you don't like in someone's fic, please make sure that you do suggest an alternative. Also, rate the fic on a scale of 1 to 10. Do not give anything less than 0, or more than 10.
General Fic Guidelines
All fics must be more than 150 words. However, no novel-length fics based on one prompt. If you would like to use one prompt for each chapter, it's up to you, and have fun. Whatever the length, please separate with an lj-cut.
Fanfics must be either G, PG, PG-13. No R fics. This means nothing explicit, and there can only be mild cursing kept to a minimum.
Please have your fics beta-read before you post them! If there is an inordinate amount of grammatical, spelling, or punctuation errors (10 for every 100 words), the post will automatically be deleted.
For format, please look at the first fics posted in the community.
As stated before, there must be a different fic for each prompt. All fics must be your work and yours alone, but may be cross-posted to other communities or fanfiction sites.
Also, variety is good! We all like an angsty unrequited love fic now and again, but please don't make every fic like that.
