rules  

Welcome to the working world

Rule 1: There are three sets of themes to choose from. Please, just choose one. And remember to stick to it!

Rule 2: We would like to see at least an update every three months. If you are going to disappear go abroad, or require an extension, please comment here. Don’t be afraid! We don’t bite.

Rule 3: You may claim up to two individual characters/pairings at a time! Everyone say “Hurray!” with me! Threesomes are allowed, but please keep in mind that in each fic, ALL of them have to appear. Oh, if you want to claim two individual characters/pairings, they have to be from different fandoms~.

Exception - Collaborations are permitted, but please, keep to the maximum number of two. This means that the both of you will work together to do set of themes you’ve chosen. Not doing 2 different sets on your own! The pairing/character will count as one for the each of you, and also, Rule 3 still applies~

Rule 4: To claim a character/pairing, please comment here. Be sure to include the subject line of “request” Also, please include the full names of your character/pairings and the fandom they belong to~ Remember to check the claims list to be sure that your character/pairing isn’t already claimed~

In addition, if you have already claimed a pairing and would like to claim another one, please make a new comment thread instead of replying to your old one. Well, when we go through the list, the chances of us missing your claim are very high. Very, very high.

If you decide to drop your claim, please comment here. Likewise, when you complete your claim, please comment here. This would ensure that we would be able to free up the character/pairing for others~

Rule 5: When a pairing/character is claimed, please remember it counts for both art and writing. If you want to do both, then… go you!

Rule 6: The themes can be interpreted in any way you desire. You can twist any word to suit your desire~. Please just include the general theme of “smiles”. It doesn’t have to be the focus of the entire thing, but it has to be there in one way or another. Be it literal, metaphorically, ect, it has to be there. As to what “smiles” means… well, it’s up to you to decide!

Rule 7: Style: It’s up to you, really. The length of the story/fiction doesn’t matter; it is the content that matters. The same goes for the artists. The art could be a very complicated piece that you spent ages on, or just a doodle, or maybe, a rough sketch. All of that doesn’t matter as long as the theme of “smiles” is captured.

Rule 8: Worry not too much if your work is good enough to publish. Don’t be too hard on yourself, after all, as the saying goes “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.” So there! Don’t worry so much!

Rule 9: “What if I want to use the work I did before and published…?” Sure, you can do that. Just try to make a habit out of it yea? This community is meant for creating new things no?

Note: Disclaimers is a must. Even more so if your fandom involves real people. Please include in your disclaimer that everything written is purely fictional and your works do not mean anything to the actual relationship/event. This is not optional. You must include that in your disclaimer. The only exception is when you are using your original characters.

Rule 12: Ratings of all kinds are welcomed here! However, anything with a rating of R and higher must be stated clearly. Please do state very clearly in your lj-cut that the rating is R or above.

Rule 13: If you're posting something with more than one chapter, it's up to you whether you want to post a chapter at a time, or wait until you've finished the whole thing.

Rule 14: Plagiarism will not be tolerated. Be original.

Rule 15: Flaming is not allowed here. Constructive feedback is very welcomed. We help and encourage each other, not discourage.

Rule 16: Tags will be added to the list when you request a pairing/character. Therefore, all you got to do is to click on the edit tags and search for yours! In the case of not being able to find your tag please tag your entry with the “!needs a tag” tag. This will allow us to know that we didn't create a tag for your claim. We apologize in advance should this happen.

Note: should you break any rule, you'll get three warnings before you are banned and your claim dropped. Minor issues like forgetting to add a "[fic]" on the subject line may be overlooked, but we suggest that you make it a habit to follow the rules and make your time here an enjoyable one (:

Last but not least;

Rule 17: Have fun~
