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

- You may claim a character, couple, or group within a single fandom. You may claim groups of up to five friends. Crossovers are not currently allowed.

- If you claim a character or friendship, you may write about other characters as long as your character or friendship is featured.

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

Subject Line
Title (Fandom, Subject, Theme #)

So, your subject would look something like "Head First (Firefly, Mal&Wash, #28)"

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.

- Do not post stories or artworks you've posted publically before to fill your themes. Every story or artwork should be either completely new or previously posted under a friends-lock or in some restricted access situation. You may cross-post your stories to other communities, I only ask that they are newly available.

- 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.

- 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.
