2012 August Fic a Day Challenge

Once again it's almost that time.

The Rules:

1. Write one fic per day during August. Stories must be complete and stand alone, but series are more than welcome and they should be BtVS/Angel Crossovers of any rating with any fandom, minimum 300 words, maximum 3000 words.
2. Entries must be posted here in the TwistedShorts Community to be counted.
3. Post more than one a day if you want, but only one fic per 24 hours counts toward the challenge. Backdating fics are not allowed for getting a fic to count within a 24 hour period.
4. There's no 'miss a day and you're out'. If you can't post one day that doesn't mean you're out of the running. Keep posting when you get a chance.
5. Winners will be decided by who has posted the most during the month. I.E. If Author A posts 28 fics on 28 days, Author B posts 31 fics on 31 days, and Author C posts 25 fics on 25 days, then Author B wins.
6. Regular posting rules apply: proper header, fic behind cut, adult rated fic comm-locked, disclaimer, etc.
7. Have fun :)

Prizes:
Write 31 fics in 31 days. Nifty banners by FaithUnbreakable will be awarded to those that complete this task.

Weekly Roundup:
There will be a weekly roundup/announcement of standing each Monday. However, the mods will be checking the submissions daily to make sure they fit the rules, are tagged correctly, etc. If you feel your daily submission is questionable (in regards to crossover-ness), please contact avamclean or azraelz_angel directly so we can address the issue before the day is up.

Tagging Policy:
Be kind and please tag your posts so that future visitors can easily find stories by the fandom they want to read, the author or the challenge year. This also greatly assists the mods when they are compiling status updates.

If you post and do not have either an author tag or the fandom tag you need, please select the appropriate tag seen below and one of the mods will get you a tag.

Tag for New Authors: !tag needed: author
Tag for New Fandoms: !tag needed: fandom

Also, tag each post for the appropriate year challenge with:

!2012 august event

Happy fic writing everyone and please keep a lookout for the suggestion post (here)!

Yay! I haven't come close to winning this thing in years, but I look forward to it each and every time it comes around; it's the greatest excuse ever to get me off my writing butt and back into my favorite sandbox. *starts plotting*

Neither have I, but it's fun while it lasts. I'm honestly hoping to get the rest of my WishList fics done so I can participate again this year. Though perhaps not 25 fics in 25 days this year. I failed at that. ;)

Yay! I really hope I can win this, as well as finish a big bang that's due on August 31. It may be close, but we'll see! :D

I have been debating trying to do this for a couple years now. This year, I plan on trying it. However, I will definitely need an author tag. That being Contstance Truggle, please and thank you!

Welcome and good luck!

We don't add author tags until a story has been posted. Just use the '!tag needed: author' tag and we'll add you then!

I think I'm going to give this a try! I'm new and what better way to introduce myself to the community by falling face first in this attempt? :P It's an awesome idea, though, a fun way to get the writing juices flowig.

When you say "adult rated fics comm-locked"--do you mean we should both mark it for only "members" to read, and then also mark it as "explicit adult situations" (down in the area below the tags)? I just put up a 21 rated fic for day 2, and I wanted to make sure I did that right. Don't want the kiddies seeing my shame, hehe.
