Signing Up
- You my claim something from any fandom: anime, movie, book, etc. Please, fictional characters only.

- You may claim a fandom, character, couple, group, or pretty much anything you can think of that isn't already taken.

- If you claim a character or couple, you may write about other characters as long as your character or couple is featured. If you claim a fandom or group, not every character has to show up in every story, but try to include a variety in your thirty stories.

- Series in the same time period with mostly the same characters are not considered different fandoms. For example, both John Munch from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and John Munch from Homicide: Life on the Street could not be claimed at the same time.

- You may claim up to two subjects at one time. All thirty themes must be written for all claims you make. Only one person can claim a specific subject at one time.

- Check the claims list, then make your claim here.

- If you have any questions, check the FAQ.
- There are no deadlines, but I may contact you if you haven't posted in a while to make sure you're still interested in your claim.

- When posting your story, please use the following format:

Subject Line
Title (Fandom, Subject, Theme #)

So, your subject would look something like "Float (Kingdom Hearts, General Series, #15)"

Subject: (This is where you list the character or characters you claimed.)
Theme(s): (Include # and theme.)

Please ALWAYS use the above format. You may add to the header, but please don't subtract from it.

- Either put your story behind an LJ cut or link to an off-community page with your story. You can make an LJ cut with the following tag: <lj-cut>

- Themes can be interpreted however you'd like to interpret them. Just don't write a story, then tack on a completely unrelated theme.

- More than one theme can be used for a single story, but at least 100 words should be dedicated to each theme. Chaptered stories are allowed.

- Please don't use the theme as a title. The theme may be included in the title, but it shouldn't be all that you use. For example don't title your story "Masquerade," title it "Exquisite Masquerade."

- Please give all of your stories some sort of title. "Untitled" gets a little old.

- Once you've completed all of your themes, comment here.

- If you have any questions, check the FAQ.
