TBH I was going to add a load more tables, but then peeps started claiming all twenty at once and I figured it would get too chaotic if everyone wanted to swap...but dammit I want to play some more :D

What ideas did you have in mind? This is as good a place as any.

Hi, I claimed Elle for the challenge and I have my first fic for it done but I can't post it.

So I was wondering if you could fix that?

Just a quick question. Can we only work on one prompt table at a time? Or can we pick and choose?

Nope, you're quite welcome to bounce across to whatever tables your muse takes you to :D

Okay, I have a question, specifically about this rule: "If you're writing Adult scenes I need for all characters to be over 18." Right now I'm working on a oneshot that has a minor and an adult having sex, but it's not really explicit and the main focus on the fic is how it affects their relationship. Is it okay to use that as a prompt anyway, or can I not use it as a prompt at all for this community? If I can, can I post it in the community, with a link to a (friends locked, probably) post or another site that CAN have fic about that without the fear of banhammer (adultfanfiction.net, for example)? Or should I just keep it in my own journal? One last question, for clarity - it is okay to have non-adult scenes with a minor and adult, yes? Phew, hope I worded those right. XD Thanks!

Hi there

TBH that rule is in place to save me and the comm from people writing explicit pedo and getting us into bother/unbearable squickyness (While I'm not someone who'll censor things that squick me, I am going to draw the line there). Since your story's a one-shot I'm going to hand-wave it, especially if it's relationship based rather than for fun/hawtness. You can link to wherever you feel most comfortable putting it, I'm fine with that. And non-adult scenes between under-18s and adults are perfectly alright, as previously mentioned, the rule's there purely so I can delete anybody who's taking it too far without them pulling the but-I-didn't-know card.

Hope that helps :D

Insane Question
Thank you for accepting me into this insanity. I do have one question, If I choose Harry Potter, do Harry Potter characters have to be in all 200 fics,(Wow, 200 fics, thats a lot of fics)
:) or can I use Harry Potter for one Table, and maybe Queer as Folk for one, and the Vampire Lestat for another?. I would try to broaden my ficage to more than just Harry Poter althouhg he is my first and true love. On another note, I have been Diagnosed with ADD, an am a manic depressive, asidefrom that I have also practiced paganism, so the mental illness and the religion tables will be written with the love and respect they deserve.
Thanks again for letting me into this insanity I can't wait to get started.

Re: Insane Question
Yes, your claim is for one fandom only, so if you claim Harry Potter all 200 fics must be Harry Potter. Crossovers are welcome, but your claim must be crossed over into the other universes, so if you claim Harry Potter and I find a QAF/Lestat crossover among your stories which doesn't have any Harry Potter characters in it then the fic will be disqualified.

Also I'm not entirely happy about accepting a fic for Lestat, as Anne Rice has expressed an intention to sue fanfic writers. I don't really want to be associated with any issues that arise from that.

Questions about the length matters table!

Do ficlets have to be exactly 500 words or over 500 words.

Do you HAVE to do a separate prompt for each chapter of an epic, or can you do one overruling prompt for all of it?

Eeep, I'm really sorry about not getting back to you sooner, I didn't get an email alert for this post :(

Ficlets have to be 500 words or over.

You can do one overrulling prompt for the lot :D

I've already made master list based on Transformers, but is there any way/format/stipulations about organizing/assigning each last in the table even further lke say AU for claims 1-3 or something like that...
Just something Muzaiden and I were wondering about...
Thanks alot..

Hi there, sorry about not getting back to you sooner, I didn't get an alert for this comment until the person below you posted :( Stupid gmail *hits it*

There's no real stipulations on further organisation, as long as I can find everything when I check your tables. If you're swapping out words I'd like to know which table you're swapping from or words you're swapping for, but otherwise it's up to you guys.

I have a quick question before I start submitting fics and getting my table in order here... When some of the table pages say that "You can swap out any three of these prompts for a word of your choice that suits the table’s theme" does that mean, out of all of the tables you choose for that particular category, you can only switch three prompts out of ALL OF THE tables you've chosen under that category? (For example, under the themed tables, if I choose horror and cliche, I only switch out three prompts between the two of them?). Or does it mean that we can switch any three prompts out in each table? (In other words, I can switch three out of horror and three out of cliche.) Just wanted to clarity on that. Thanks!

Hi there

It's per table, so for food you could swap guacamole, stew and strawberries for custard, cake and jelly, if you wanted. And then you can still swap out three of the quotes for three different quotes :)

hope that helps

This community seems really cool, but not too sure how the whole system works. It's probably really simple and I'm just dense or something, but if someone could give me a little overview, that'd be awesome. Thanks!

Hi there

have you seen the other prompt challenge communities on LJ? If so, jump down to the next paragraph. Basically you use each prompt to start off a story, so Night, story set at night, etc. etc. Although you don't have to be literal, the Barley Sugar prompt could be a collection of sweet themed drabbles, and so on and so forth. As you complete each story, you post it and make a link to your table.

With this challenge, instead of getting a single table of prompts, you pick out the twenty that you like the look of most and build a master table with them. So someone who wants to read the stories just pulls up the master table, then goes to the table they want to read, then pick out the story. Here's a link to Lana's master table at our journal so you can see how it works. just, be warned, most stories are NC-17.

Once you've filled out a table you get a banner, then as you complete more and more tables you get more and more of the emblems (like badges in Boy Scouts and Girl Guides). Once you've done all twenty tables (and the Bonus Crazy Prompts table, if applicable) then you've completed the challenge and go into the hall of fame :D

Does that help?

Hi there!
I've written my first story, but it seems I can't post it in M:I! Can I please have posting access? :D
Sorry to be a bother!

Hi, I am really sorry about how long it took to get back to you (RL pwns all, I'm afraid)

I'm glad it seems to have been sorted before I got here (especially since I can't work out what the problem must have been).

Not a bother! Sorry to have been so long responding.

Hi there

unfortunately RL decided to hand me a whole big plate of no fun and fail recently. I am going to start on them as soon as I get my shit together (things are still shaky at the mo). I'm also going to be advertising for another mod who has photoshop so that we don't have this problem again.

sorry about the delay!

I am about to ask you the craziest question you have ever heard.

Is it possible to have more than 1 claim at a time?

Hi there

sorry about the delay getting back to you, RL pwns all (and I really must remember to ask my co-mod to check here, I get comment notifications for this post, she doesn't).

Believe or not, you're not the first to ask this XD You're allowed 2 active claims at any one time.

Hope that helps!

Hello, i think i might have been deleted from the tags list since i haven't posted anything as yet(after many many months). The reason for the latter is because RL interferred. So i have a question and a tiny request.

May i re-join?

This was my insane_table: http://mon-ami-runa.livejournal.com/26435.html

and i have created a LJ specifically for my fanfiction under the name of monoceros_writ could my tag be for that LJ?

thank you and i apologize for the delay in posting

Ah, the claims post... We don't talk about the claims post... Sorry, everytime I go to change that be-damned thing RL rips my legs out from under me and lands me in a sloshing pit of fail. I've developed a strange sort of Pavlovian response to it.

You are still an active member (we informally decided that - if there were no other issues - then anyone who joined before that 9 month notice thing had nine months from the date of the rule being posted), and it's no problem to shift your tags over, I'll go do that now for you :D

Do we have to post every fic we write, or can we pick and chose which ones to post here? Because I really wouldn't bother cross posting drabbles and stuff to this comm, cause they're so short and random. I'd just post them on my fic journal and link my master table to them. Is that okay?
capn_mactastic
Aug. 14th, 2008 08:08 pm (UTC)
I'd like to have at least a link, otherwise the tagging system is a bit redundant. Quite a few people do a post to multiple fics, say if you did five drabbles over a couple of days, just make one post with fake-cuts to the five drabbles. Or even save them up for when you finish a prompt table.
