FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Posting
When posting, please use the title block example given on the rules page. Your title block should show your information, and the story itself should either be hidden behind an lj-cut or there should be a link to your story on your journal or another accessible site.

How to make an lj-cut
When using HTML editor, an lj-cut is as follows:
<lj-cut text="Read my story">


Story Requirements
Ideally, you should develop a complete short story for the theme. This isn't always possible due to lack of inspiration or lack of time to make an entirely new story.

Your story should be:
- over 500 words (no objections; this is almost laughable.)
- full developed (plot, characters, beginning, middle, end.)

If you are in the middle of a multi-chapter already and want to post a chapter, that's fine.
Be sure to post a link to where a reader can find the rest of your story, and try to make sure your chapter has a fully-developed idea.

You have a month to write a story, so stay on the ball and post your finished work anytime before midnight at the end of the month. 

Fandoms
A fandom is the realm of any movie, show, or book where fans write fanfiction.
A fandom is a fictional universe where the story takes place (sometimes referred to as 'verses. (i.e. BuffyVerse)) and each one has their own characteristics and truths. Some fandoms/verses have magic and others have Jedi knights.*
* - If you don't already know this, you might not want to write in a fandom.
 

Some examples: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Torchwood, Batman, Star Wars, ect.

You can write in any fandom you wish, including original fiction.


Voting
Polls will be posted on the first of the month. Awards cannot be given out if there aren't enough votes, so reading and casting your vote will be crucial! Please do not vote for yourself! Writers need to support each other, so take a moment to recognize each other's work - leave comments if you wish, and cast a vote for the stories you liked.

Awards
Awards will be given out to winners of the poll categories. The categories are not set in stone yet, and will more than likely vary each month.


That's all for now.  Any more questions?  Ask away!
