I've 30_kisses, I've seen 100_themes and I've seen 100_leitmotifs. What I haven't seen is a similar community based on phrases and quotes. I'm sure one exists, but I haven't seen it. So, I made one.
1. This community is for writing only. The communities above allow for art, so go there if you must have art.
2. You can pick up to three characters per fandom(anime, TV shows, books, movies, original works, etc). You can choose up to two fandoms. They could be in any combination you want. That is, a threesome, a pairing, or a solo. Just so long as at least one of them is in the story. When you pick three characters, keep in mind that others may take the other two. Example, if you choose Yami Yugi, Yugi and Tea, someone else could choose Yugi and Tea or just one of them. Another example would be in 30_kisses, Seto Kaiba is paired with quite a few different people, but each author has Seto in common, while the other person is different.
3. Below, I have fifty phrases. Some of them are quotes from songs and people, while others are phrases that I myself used or were given to me by those on my friendslist. The phrase MUST be in the story. I don't care if it's paraphrased or mixed or used verbatim. I just care that the chosen phrase is used. You need to use fifty phrases per set of characters you choose. You can divide them however you wish, just so long as the total is fifty.
4. Romance is not required.
5. Try to post at least once a month, but this is a low pressure community, so take all the time you need. But, if you really believe you can't do it, then let me know and I'll take you off the list and your claims will be open season.
6. Homophobia and heterophobia are not welcome here. In fact, no hatred of any sort is allowed. You're free to dislike certain characters, pairings, stories, artwork, fandoms, etc, but keep it out of this community.
7. If you don't like something and can't give constructive feedback, then don't say anything at all and just hit the back button.
8. When posting, please use the following format:
Title: Fandom: Characters: Phrase: (include both the number and the theme) Warnings/Ratings: Synopsis: (include a brief description of what your contribution is about)
9. Post all character requests in this post. Do not post to the community asking for characters, your post will be deleted and ignored if you do so.
10. The character sets will be yours and no one else's for the duration of your 50 phrases. Once you complete your 50 phrases, that set will be fair game for anyone else who wishes to claim them. (Note -- claiming two sets means you're expected to do all 50 phrases for each couple).
11. You are allowed to combine phrases.
