1. You have to concentrate only on one character. It can be in the character's POV, 3rd person narration concentrated on it, 3rd person narration just talking about its adventures, POV of someone else, who's talking about the chosen character... etc., etc. But it has to concentrate on the one, chosen character.
2. You have to write one story to *every* of the 13 prompts.
3. If you choose a character, you can write the 13 stories for this month's prompts to it only once. However, you can once again use the same character and write to different prompts another 13 stories for it.
If someone else chooses this character before you, you're still welcome to post your own answer to the same challenge. This means that more than one person can write about the same character, at the same time.
4. There are no rules that specify the type of story, warnings, pairings or ratings. It's all the Author's Choice.
(It's also one of the reasons why this community is not completely open for everyone, every age.) However see point 10!!!
5. The stories don't have to be connected to each other. But they may, of course. (If they are, please note it before them as to not mislead the readers.)
6. Stories may be X-posted to as many sites and communities as you want to, but since you're answering to our prompts it'd be nice to post here *first*, and add a note that the story was written for this particular community.
7. Every Author has a right to add a fic number zero with a prompt of his own. Still a prompt had to be stated. By writing to his own prompt the Author agrees to the possibility of others using the same prompt, thanks to the inspiration.
8. You have to post all of the13 fics at once.
For example, you can't post 7 fics and state that you'll add more. All of them at the same time.
9. Your stories together have to be written in exactly 10 000 words. All 13 together (if your adding a story number '0' it also counts in number of words). It doesn't matter how you divide words between the stories.
For example you can write 12 drabbles (regular for drabble 100 words each) and one story for 8 800. Either way it had to be 10 000 in the end.
10. What you write before your story is strictly your business and you can add there whatever you want, BUT you have to also include this:
Even if your fic is unbetad, has no pairings,no title, no spoilers and no warnings, you still have to include this before your story. Just write 'none' or 'doesn't apply' in the right places.
In special occasions it's allowed to write something like "I know but I'm not gonna tell"! For example if the whole joke of the drabble is the pairing revealed at the end, or the reader is supposed to guess about who you're talking about... As long as it's nothing offending and it's not going to really disgust the readers - you have a blessing to not spoil the surprise ;)
11. All 13 (or 14) stories, their title/rating/etc, Author's Notes etc. etc. are UNDER LJ-CUT! Everybody heard me? Let's repeat - LJ-CUT, PEOPLE!!!
What's showing above said lj-cut is:
Small photo of the character:
(AND I MEAN, REALLY SMALL! If you can't find one that's small and still looks nicely, than just give a link, ok?)
(If there's no photo or art of chosen by you character than of course, you don't have to add it, but it would be really nice if you'd try to look for something. It's really rare situation if there's absolutely none picture of some character.)
Eventually you can add some short Author's Note about all the stories or just to say how great a community we are (*coughs*). But if it's too long, hide it under an lj-cut too, okay?
It would be nice, if in said too long Author's Notes before stories, you could say in few words why did you choose exactly this character. But of course, you don't have to. You'll be probably asked about it in the comments anyway *shrugs*
12. After the challenge is closed you still may write to it, BUT you have to note above your stories that the deadline expired, got it? Ok. (That's the change made in the previous set of rules to make your lives easier ;))
Please ask any other questions you may have in the comments to this post.
