07/28/2009, 04:35am. Mod update! Okay, I have decided to have themes added for challenges. So please read the rules and let me know if you have any problems.:3.
1. This comm is for Katsushiro Okamoto only. So you can write for him, him in a pairing. Het - Slash/Yaoi/Shounen-ai - Friend - Gen - Even Genderbend him if ya want! Oc pairings are fine as well.
2. I understand about real life and internet problems getting in the way so there is no time limit for the claim. So don't worry about it.
3. How many of you are waiting on this part? When you are done, let me know and I'll add you to the hall of fame and even make you a completion banner! My skills are limited to Paint but I am using the paint on Windows 7 and it has some nifty stuff!
4. I don't care what Genre you write or draw your claim in. Just claim and interpret the themes however you want. Just include it in some minor way.
5. Yes, you can do both fanart and fanfiction for your themes. Heck, you can even make a video using one of the themes. Variety is the spice of after all, right?
6. After you make your claim, you can go ahead and start writing since there is a chance that my net may be out. The weather over here is supposed to be bad the rest of this week.DX.
7. Before requesting or posting, you need to join the community and no flaming of any kind will be tolerated. People enjoy different things so just don't read it if you don't like.^_^.
8. To help prevent said flaming, please post the whatever it is you have created using the following format.
The following does not need to be in this order, just what you need.:D.
Author: Rating: Warning: If needed or contains spoilers. Title: Disclaimer: Summary: Claim: Some link to the story, it can be a link from it's posted at Fanfiction.net or MediaMiner.org or anywhere else. Those are just examples.
And please tag your entries as follows. Authors Name - Your claim - Samurai 7.
9. I am trying to cover everything in the rules but if you questions feel free to e-mail me. RogueWarrior869@gmail.com or MatsuoMiwa@hotmail.com
I check both frequently.;^^;.
10. Collaborations are allowed. And you can do the themes however you want. Individual pieces, multi-chaptered fanfic. You can however, have only one claim at a time and there is no limit for who to have what.
11. Below are the themes and when making your claim please state the numbers either 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30. As for the moment there are only going to be 30 themes.
Example: Picking 5, means you only have to do five from the list. I am also setting a special challenge but this should do for the moment, I hope. And feel free to interpret the themes however you want.;b.
1. Sword(Can be any kind of sword or more than one.)
3. Hurt/Comfort.(This can be however you want it to be.)
