Hey guys! I know it’s been months since the last mod note but I’ve decided to spice things up a bit, get more traffic into the community. Get the writers in you working. This will be our very first prompt-athlon.

It’s exactly that the same suggests. A marathon of themes or prompts I’ll drop every so often and everyone can participate. 

This is how it’ll go:
Starting from today, I will be posting a random theme along with a time limit.
Let’s say for example, sometime today, I drop a separate post it will look something like this-

>Link to this entry<

Prompt/Theme: Bad birthday parties.

Time limit: One week – Ends 3rd Feb 11:59 PST.

This means your fic or drabble must be related to ‘Bad Birthdays’ in some way, and must be posted by the 3rd of February.

Rules/need to knows:
1) All entries must be 500 words+

2) You must post them to the community with the heading- [Promptathlon # 2012]. Works must be posted to the community itself and not linked to from your journal and locked to the community. However once the prompt closes, you are free to cross post anywhere you like.

3) You must use the new separate tag for your entry along with the other usual tags: !promptathlon

4) You don’t have to participate in each one once you start, it isn’t required. Anyone can join in at any time. You don’t even have to make your fics/drabbles related to any previous submitted, but it would pretty frikken awesome if you did.

5) Once one prompt closes, I post the next one within days of that.

6) There is no limit to your creativity when it comes to genre or rating unless specified with the prompt I post.

7) As always top!Hyuk or top!Hae allowed.

There isn’t exactly a prize to this but every few prompts we’ll make some sort of master list for these fics, maybe icons for participating in a certain number of these. Let’s just see how this goes \o/

Please leave comments with questions or suggestions if you have any.

Question. Do we have to wait till the prompt closed to post the fic or we can post it whenever before the prompt closed?

Posting is before I close the prompt.

Make sure to add the proper heading and tags!

[Promptathlon 1 2012] <------ this in the heading.
