Ho Ho Ho! adventchallenge is pleased to announce that sign-ups for its 2011 Xmas Round are open until the 30th of November. We want to make this year bigger and better than ever, and the most important part of that is you guys, which is why we're inviting every artist and writer who wants to take part to come along and sign up!
What is the Advent Challenge? Simply put 25 stories or artworks posted in the 25 days running up to Christmas. We're a multi-fandom challenge, and although we focus on Yaoi pairings, Het and Yuri are welcome too. For more information or just to have a nose at some of last year's excellent entries go to adventchallenge or go straight to How to Advent . Hope to see you there and looking forward to seeing all the wonderful things you come up with this holiday season!

Hey everyone! Have you read the news? naruto_meme , a monthly anonymous writing memes comm for Naruto fans, has got three new mods and accepting suggestions for new prompts right now!
Got a few favorite themes, genres, styles, or characters you want to add to the growing list of prompts? A few favorite ones that were already featured that you want to see again? Now’s your chance! Head over here to let us know what prompts you’d like to see!
Come on over and join the fun! ♥
It's time for us to examine our bestial side with this week's prompt, animal
. Will this mean that Lee gets a pet iguana that takes all his attention from a now-jealous Gaara, or that Hinata a wildcat in between the sheets? Or maybe Mizuki, driven mad by humanity's disapproval of him, turns to a more... natural state of mind? Release the beast within the queer ships this week!
(And just a reminder, our Sasuke/Naruto challenge is still open. We have had some wonderful submissions so far, and would love you see more posted! The theme is post-series, and further specifications and rules can be found at the announcement post

G. AU. For queershinobi100
's prompt 15 (down the rabbit hole).Summary
: Her eyes caught her eyes and didn't waver. Now, now there is nothing but the chase.Follow her.
: Dreams of the SpiderCharacter/Pairings
: PG-13Word Count
: This heavily alludes to sex but I feel is not nearly descriptive enough to deserve a higher rating. All the same, those who are shy of sexual activity, beware.Summery
: Everyone politely continues the facade while behind closed doors everyone already knows better.Notes
: I am brand new to this community so please forgive me if I don't get this exactly right ^^; This is for queershinobi100 Challenge oo1 - Post Series: Sasuke/Naruto( And they were all none the wiserCollapse )
The weekly prompt is the other new aspect of our community. This is a word, phrase, or scenario prompt given each week; please note that word or phrase prompts are just prompts, and do not need to be used directy in the drabble. All pairings are welcome, and you can submit as many drabbles for the prompt as you would like. For formatting, tags, and other questions, please check out the rules on our profile page or ask us here!
Drabbles for the weekly prompts should have a minimum of 100 words or a maximum of 300. Drawbles are allowed for weekly prompts, so artists, draw away!
Our prompt for this week is down the rabbit hole, in celebration of Tim Burton's film being released this weekend. Does this mean that Sakura dons a blue dress and follows a rabbit to another strange world or does it mean Sasuke is as mad as a hatter? Or maybe it's something philosophical, like Neji opening up to the possibility of more? Tell us with your drabbles!
As part of our community make-over, we decided to create a monthly challenge!
The monthly challenge will last four weeks. Writers can submit a drabble between a minimum of 100 words to a maximum of 500 words. Like our weekly prompts, the monthly challenge will include a word, phrase, or scenario prompt, but unlike our weekly prompts, the challenge will have a specific pairing that must be adhered to. Anyone can submit a drabble for the challenge; there's no need to sign up for anything!
The monthly challenge is broken down by weeks. After we post the challenge, you will be given three weeks to write a drabble and submit it to the community. (If you're unfamiliar with how to submit your drabbles to the community, please read the rules on our profile page.) We'll remind you of the challenge deadline periodically. At the end of three weeks, all submitted drabbles will be collected and voted on in a screened entry by community members. By the end of the fourth week, a winner and runner-up will be announced and given banners for their drabbles.
So, without further ado, queershinobi100
presents the first challenge:
Our first pairing is Sasuke/Naruto
! We decided to go with a classic and well-loved pairing to get the ball rolling; please note that Naruto/Sasuke and Sasuko/Naruko is also welcome, but het variations of this couple (such as Sasuke/Naruko or Naruto/Sasuko) are not. Clones are always welcome, but threesomes (such as Sasuke/Naruto/Gaara) are not. The prompt for this challenge is post-series
. To clarify, post-series is what you believe will happen once the Naruto
series is completed. It can be moments after, months after, or years after, but it must contain elements that prove to us that it is after the fact.
We hope to see some wonderful drabbles from everyone. Good luck and have fun!
♥ Faor and Steve
Help us pimp this challenge!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
Okay folks, here’s the scoop.
Faor and I debated on whether or not to keep queershinobi100 a challenge community or change it into a noncompetitive community. After much feedback and brainstorming, Faor brilliantly said, “Why not both?” So, now we have both.
For the noncompetitive aspect, we decided to have a weekly prompt. This prompt will either be a singular word, a phrase, or a scenario. (As a reminder, word and phrase prompts are just prompts and do not have to be directly incorporated into your drabble.) For these prompts, you can write about any pairing of your choosing. However, unlike before, the drabbles submitted for these prompts will merely be for the enjoyment of the readers; there will be no competition to see who writes the best drabble for the prompt.
For the competition that many of you still wanted in this community, we’ve decided to do a month long challenge. The challenge (a word, phrase, or scenario prompt) will be issued once a month and will have a specified pairing that must be adhered to, such as Sakura/Karin or Shino/Kiba. Writers will have three weeks to complete and submit their drabble for the challenge. At the end of three weeks, the submissions will be voted on by community members; this will last for one week. At the end of the month, the winner and the runner-up of the challenge will receive a banner as a prize.
Faor and I plan to have the first prompts for both the noncompetitive and challenge up by tomorrow, so if you have any questions or comments, feel free to ask!
Although it is a bit obvious, I feel the need to say that queershinobi100
has been in a bit of a slow spell in the last couple of months. I have thought about what to do, and I've decided that there needs to be a change.
First of all, I have recruited help in the form of asking calciseptine
to join me as a mod. She has accepted, and cannot wait to begin working.
Secondly, the way in which the competition is held will be changed. I based the current formula on the now-dead kakairu100
back when I started this community; since then, I have a lot more knowledge about how other drabble comms work and work well. People have shown their concerns about having a writer choose a winner. I have not decided if the competition will continue with a poll (as seen in kh_drabble
) or no competition with the mods posting prompts (as seen in snape100
). Feel free to comment here with suggestions.
Thirdly, whatever we do decide in terms of competition, we have confirmed that drawbles will be allowed
! If you don't know what that is, drawble is basically a quick drawing that is the art equivalent to a drabble.
Steve and I will be suspending queershinobi100
for a week or two, until we decide what we are going to do.
Hope to see you all then,faorism
Time to pick this week's winner! I want to thank everyone that submitted a drabble for this challenge. :) You guys made it really hard for me to decide! But I've finally chosen calciseptine
's drabble the needle and the thread
as this week's winner. I'm really feeling the angst and potential there.
Also, if you haven't checked out

Congrats, Steve. Can't wait to see what your challenge will be!
