2. Stories may be slash, gen or het.
3. AUs and Crossovers are both allowed.

5. You will be able to post your story on your own journal or site, and we'll create a master list of links and summaries at the community.

You must sign-up to participate by June 1st.
Your first draft (20,000 words minimum) must be completed and turned in with a summary, story warnings and final title by September 10th. (This is important and required, because we need to know that you will be finished with your story by the final due date BEFORE the artists begin work.)
On September 15th, your summary and title will be posted (anonymously) for a participating artist to claim as a prompt. The artist will create at the very least one piece of art (title banner, illustration, manip, etc.) to accompany your story. Alternately, a vidder may do a trailer for your story. This will depend on vidder participation. If the artist/vidder requests additional information to work from, you must be prepared to send a copy of your story draft.
Your final draft must be completed by October 26th. This is also the due date for all art and vids.
The posting window will be between November 2nd and November 13th. The moderators will contact you with your posting date.
