An Original Challenge

Welcome to 100_original, a spinoff of fanfic100 and a community to share your original fics! We ask that you please refrain from posting before your claim has been added to the table, and to beware the swinging doors (they bite >.>;) as you look about!

Step One:Start writing. Who or what about is your choice--everything is. Delve into your world and pull out an idea. And latch onto that idea as best you can. Inform us about your work here!

Step Two:Once your claim has been registered, go here to request a tag for your claim. If you would like your Big Damn Table linked on the Gigantic Frickin' Table, submit the link to your Big Damn Table here.

Step Three:
Write one hundred fics about the work (the 'fandom,' as it were) you've chosen. They can be anything: narratives, poems, drabbles, scripts--anything, so long as it works in your 'fandom.' They needn't be posted all at once; your entries can be posted in any quantity, whenever you want.

All entries must be posted behind a LJ-cut!

And you knew they were coming--the prompts themselves.

031.Sunrise.032.Sunset.033.Too Much.034.Not Enough.035.Sixth Sense.
091.Birthday.092.Christmas.093.Thanksgiving.094.Independence.095.New Year.
096.Writer‘s Choice.097.Writer‘s Choice.098.Writer‘s Choice.099.Writer‘s Choice.100.Writer‘s Choice.

Are there any deadlines?

Nope! Deadlines = stress. Stress = writer's block, in cases (myself included). Just... try not to forget about it, mm?

Do I have to pick a specific focus?

Nope! If you want to focus on a certain character, that's great. Pairing? Wonderful. But if you want to just work on your story as a whole, that's fine, too!

If I pick a pairing, does every fic have to have that pairing in it? What about if I pick a single character?

Not physically. However, if your story has a pairing as its focus, it needs to at least involve those characters--be creative! A character talking about them, a note, anything. In that same vein, each story with one character as its focus needs to at least provoke thought about that character.

What is considered a group? What can I claim for a group?

Yep. You can claim pretty much anything specific (I certainly won't know!). No 'female characters' or 'villains', though. That's just a titch too broad, I think.

What is the minimum word count? Can I write a haiku?

Your entry needs at least 100 words to be considered a fic. You can write haikus, yes, but you need to be sure that you have at least 100 words within them.

When do I post? All a once or one at a time?

Post as you go! Don't leave us hanging, mm? This also cuts down on flooding the community with posts, which is what happens when you post a bunch of drabbles at the same time!

How many stories can go in one entry?

We'd prefer to see only one drabble per entry, please! Doing this makes it much easier for the memories to be kept neat and clean--plus it makes the memories an easy way to find older drabbles (that 'alphabetical' sort tool is a wonderful thing...).

Are fake cuts okay?

Lovely. :D

How many works can I claim at once?

Eh, we'll start with two--just make sure you're working on both, not letting one sit abandoned!

What is the policy on AU? What about crossovers?

Beautiful. Your choice. Hell, if you'd like, claim a crossover on your own (I certainly will be!). We just ask that you at least let the other person (if the second work belongs to another person, of course) know you're doing it, mm?

Can we post the stories elsewhere that we write for this?

Hah, we're not stopping you! They're products of your own mind, which means you own them all.

Do we have to post them in order? Or can I post number 34 before number 1, etc?

Whatever floats your metaphorical boat. Misordered is fiiiiiine~!

How central do the prompt words have to be to the story?

They don't even have to be in there. The prompt words are just that--a prompt. Be creative; take your own spin on them!

Can I use more than one prompt in one fic?

Preferably not. Rather defeats the purpose of 100, wouldn't you think?

Can I do a claim jointly with someone else?

Nope, though I won't know if you do. >.> Get opinions, ideas, but you write it yourself, mm?

I have a question that's not answered here!

All right! Go here with it, then, and we mods will get back to you as fast as we can!
Step Four:When you're finally done with all your entries, post here to be acknowledged!
