GENERAL RULES & INFORMATION

1. Please make sure you join the [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang community. It will be the Author’s responsibility to watch or track the community to make sure you don’t miss anything.

2. Your fandom must be verified before you sign up. If your fandom wasn’t verified during a previous round (and hasn’t since grown too large to qualify), then you should comment here or at the What Qualifies as a Small Fandom post at our sister community [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest to have it verified. The general rule for this community is that any fandom with less than 2,000 fic qualifies.

(For a list of fandoms that have already been qualified, please check the Qualifying Fandoms Database; for a list of fandoms that have already been disqualified, please check the What Qualifies as a Small Fandom post at [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest.)

Don’t forget to check the list for fandoms that have been disqualified since the last round.

3. Stories must be at least 10,000 words long. There is no maximum length.

4. All ratings, pairings (gen, het, slash, threesomes), and genres (from horror to romance) are welcome here.

5. AUs are allowed. Crossovers between small fandoms are allowed. Fusions between small fandoms are allowed.

6. Stories must be fictional person fiction only; this challenge does not include real person fiction unless the real person has been fictionalized. (For example, if you’re writing Alexander the Great based on the movie Alexander, or Napoleon based on the Temeraire series.)

8. Stories must be complete and new – no WIPs or previously posted work will be accepted.

9. Authors may sign-up to write more than one fic, and/or to co-write a fic. Please read the FAQ before doing so as there are limits to the number of fic you may sign up to write.

10. If you choose to co-write fic, please only sign up once and list both usernames in the form.

11. If you choose to sign-up to write more than one fic, please sign up separately for each fic.

12. Please note that check-ins are mandatory.

13. Stories must not be posted anywhere on the web prior to your posting date, in part or in whole. You will be able to share snippets of your story at our support comm, [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomcafe.

14. Authors may also sign-up to do art, but may not claim their own fic.

15. Authors, please note that you may be called upon to assist your artist with screencaps, character descriptions, etc. Since this is a multi-fandom, small fandom challenge there is a high probability that Artists will be asked to create artwork for fandoms they are unfamiliar with, so your assistance will be necessary.

For more information, please read the Rules and FAQ before you sign up.

Hello, everyone! The Author Sign-Up form goes live tomorrow and I wanted to let you know about one change I've made to it. From my experience signing up for other challenges I've realized there's an option to send the person filling out the form a copy of their information, so I have enabled that option so everyone has a access to the fandoms they've signed up with in case they need a reminder or need to change their fandom.

In order for that to happen I had to set the form to 'collect e-mail addresses', which is something I can't edit. So that you didn't have to submit your e-mail address twice I deleted the original e-mail item, and now you'll be asked for you e-mail before your LJ username.

It's a little thing, but I didn't want anyone to look at the form and wonder what the heck was going on.

See you all tomorrow!
