This is part 5 of the LiveJournal tutorials that I've been posting on tumblr and Facebook. If you've participated in Seasonal Spuffy before, feel free to scroll past -- you're good. :) If you haven't and you might want to, welcome! An overview of how this community works is available in the profile, and this post demonstrates in detail how to create an entry, assuming one is new to LiveJournal.

...that next Wednesday, March 20th, will be a free-for-all day here on Seasonal Spuffy, just in case anyone would like to share some new work without waiting till May. Information and optional prompts here.
The 26th round of seasonal_spuffy, a Spuffy stuff creation&appreciation party, will run for three weeks from Thursday, May 2, until Wednesday, May 22, 2019.

SITES. For this round, you can post here on LiveJournal or in our Dreamwidth community, or both as you prefer! Links to all entries will be available during the round on both sites and also on tumblr and Facebook. We will post some information on Elysian Fields and BuffyForums, as well.

THEME. Our theme this round will be Dark Carnival! Thank you to rahirah for the suggestion! Props also to garnigal and javajunkie247, whose themes put up a good fight in the poll, and thank you to everyone else for suggesting and voting. As always, creators are free to interpret the theme however they want or do something else altogether.

SIGNUP. You may sign up for a posting day of your very own by leaving a comment below. (Logging in is not necessary for that; if you don't see the comment button, keep scrolling.) Posting dates are available on a first-come, first-served basis, but days can be shared once enough people sign up. We're also offering some free-for-all days on which anybody may post without signup, as long as they do it the Seasonal Spuffy way: May 6, May 12, and May 18–19.

Here's our SCHEDULE:
scheduleCollapse )

Plan to create an original, never-before-posted Spike/Buffy fanwork to share with the community! :) We never met a medium we didn't like. Here's an incomplete list of things people have posted on Seasonal Spuffy to general acclaim: fic, drabbles, drawings, playlists, poetry, manips, mood boards, wallpapers, WIP chapters, artwork resources, icons, comics, fanvids, maps, magnetic poetry kits, puzzle games, polls, podfic, Other Art... you get the picture. Anything goes. For the few formats of fanworks that are impossible to get into a LiveJournal/Dreamwidth post, posting a link is fine.

Please check the rules before you begin. Most are fairly standard, but be aware that we don't allow all-human AUs. All-penguin AUs are enthusiastically welcomed.

Have fun! Any questions, feel free to ask.
You have been active voters, but there were so many good theme suggestions that we have a three-way tie. Let's put the leading options in a room and let them wrestle it out!

This poll is closed.

Which of these will be the best theme for Seasonal Spuffy Round 26?

"Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come." (Robert H. Schuller)
Déjà Vu
Dark Carnival

This poll will be up until Friday noon, New York time, or until we have a winner, whichever takes longer.

As before, you can vote in a comment instead.

If you already voted for one of these themes and you don't recast your vote, I'll assume you haven't changed your mind. (But the graph will be prettier if you do vote again.)
[Votes from the previous poll that aren't in this poll (last I checked) but will be counted:
2 for Déjà Vu (flow, the_wiggins)
2 for Dark Carnival (relurker, wolfshadoe)
1 for "Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come." (Robert H. Schuller) (garnigal)]

Thank you for your patience! This is the final thing we need to take care of before we can open signup. :)
Current Mood: fight fight fight!

We got soooo many fun ideas from you all! <3 Now it's time to choose the one we like best. The theme will be a uniting prompt for the whole round, and creators can interpret it in their contributions if it inspires them.

ETA: the final, tie-breaking battle for the theme is raging over here.

This poll is closed.

What would be the best theme for Seasonal Spuffy Round 26 (Spring 2019)?

About Time
"Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come." (Robert H. Schuller)
Dark Carnival
Déjà Vu
Demon Dance
Drunk Buffy and/or Spike
Fun and Games
Hope Springs Eternal
Past and Future
Post-After The Fall
Soap Opera
Spuffy smut
Turn Back the Clock

If the poll won't let you vote, please feel free to tell us your favorite in a comment. Thank you! It's not necessary to log in in order to do that, and I swear the comment button is right there below the ads that are below the post.

Signup will open later this week. :)

Time to think about what else we want to do this spring, apart from that lone free-for-all day on March 20th! ;) Your mods here at seasonal_spuffy are planning the Spring 2019 Round, and we'd love to have your input to help decide where, when, and how long it is to be.

ETA: this poll is now closed, but you can still help us pick the theme!

This poll is also available in Google Forms for those who prefer not to use LiveJournal. Please only fill out one of the poll versions. Thank you!

Though it may not feel that way, spring is within reach! And you know what that means. :)

The spring equinox, March 20th, is going to be a Seasonal Spuffy free-for-all day.

We welcome fic, art, and most other things you could dream of making, as long as it's Spike/Buffy, it was made by you, and it's not been posted anywhere else yet. Please see our posting guidelines for details.

You're free to post here on LiveJournal, in our Dreamwidth community, or both!

No signup is needed to participate in this one-day event. Just show up and post if it sounds fun. :)

This free-for-all day doesn't have an official theme. Anything Spuffy goes! That being said, if you're in need of inspiration, consider:
optional promptsCollapse )
If nothing inspires you just yet, do not despair! A month is a long time, and the nice thing about free-for-all days is you don't have to commit to anything at all.

Any questions, feel free to contact the mods, e.g. by commenting on this post or emailing sspuffy@gmail.com. If you could use some help with LiveJournal, try the pinned tutorial.

One last note: if you're from Elysian Fields and you want all your EF friends to know about this event, please trust that we will take care of announcing it. Because of the new EF shoutbox guidelines, the best way to help us spread the word on Elysian Fields is to leave general announcements to us. Thank you! :)

Have fun! And stay tuned, because soon it will be time to start planning the full spring round, as well. \o/

I really wanted to do something with the wonderful Spuffy Aesthetic Pack javajunkie247 contributed to the past round, and this wallpaper is the result:
