How it works

  1. Claim as many prompts as you like, announcing to the world your intent to write.
  2. Prompts can be claimed by more than one person.
  3. The prompts are grouped into days by pairing, spread out over the week following the April 27 due date. Post your response on the day for that prompt.
  4. Last day is free-for-all; post a response to any prompt.
  5. If you've picked a wild-card prompt and selected a pairing for it, post on the day for that pairing. The idea is to have a day chock-full of Giles/Xander hurt comfort, then another one for Giles/Buffy, and so on.
  6. Claim anything up until the day it's supposed to be posted. If you miss that day, post on the free for all.
  7. We won't be chasing anybody down demanding stories. But only claim what you think you'll really write. Don't get anybody's hopes up.
  8. And hey, we'll take stories written to these prompts from now until LJ crumbles to dust.
