Themed Challenge
to Art/Fic community

It is a Harry Potter and Merlin community (for now). It is a themed challenge community, inspired from other challenge communities like 12_stories, 100_colours (see credits), where almost everything and anything related to the two fandoms goes. We can add other fandoms as required, if they have something in common with wizards and kings.

The community is slash, het and gen friendly, so it will contain fiction of an adult, both homoerotic and heterosexual, nature. Mutual respect is essential, and if the idea of a romantic and/or sexual relationship between two people of the same gender or two people of opposite genders offends or upsets you, and/or you are under the age of consent within your country, then you should leave now.

I would like to approve claims within 24 hours of the claim being made. This sometimes may not be possible, so please bear with me. It shouldn't take longer than one day and if it does you can email me or leave a post in my personal journal or around this journal. I would also like to make tags for every author. I will give you the tag when I approve your claim.

I will make some banners but if you want, you are welcome to make banners too. Please let me know! I would really like to see your ideas.

There will be 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 prompts tables, in two categories: "deadline" and "no time limit".
For the "deadline challenges" category the deadline for the first post is three weeks from the day your claim had been accepted. Then you will have to post each prompt at most two weeks apart. If you miss a prompt posting the next two weeks you will have to post it too together with the prompt for the current two weeks. If you miss three prompts without asking for an extension your claim will be considered dropped.

Step one:

You will have to decide if you want your challenge to be a "deadline challenge" or a "no time limit challenge", what fandom you want to claim, what pairing/character/general fandom you want to write about. These can be slash (male/male or female/female), het (male/female), gen (no romantic and/or sexual relationships) or they can be single characters. They can be claimed once for each table. you may claim more than one pairing/character/general fandom, but please be aware of your limits. 

Step two:

Decide if you want a 5, 10, 20, 50 or 100 prompts table.

Step three:

Once you've decided which fandoms and pairings you wish to write about, go here to see if what you want has already been claimed or not.

Step four:
