How to Post an Entry to Seasonal Spuffy - the Beginner's Guide

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.

The season for seasonal_spuffy is May and November from now on

Thank you all for the poll votes and the patience! The mods have decided on the fixed schedule for the future rounds of seasonal_spuffy.

All spring rounds will start on the second Monday of May. All fall rounds will start on the second Monday of November. The length of the rounds will be two to three weeks depending on how many people sign up.

We'll be back in early March to choose the theme for the upcoming spring round and launch the banner contest as always. :)

All the future rounds of Seasonal Spuffy: what time of year do you want them?

Hello, friends in Spuffy! This is just a reminder about the poll from the end of the fall round. If you already made your opinion known, thank you! We have about two weeks left to decide whether we're having a March round or a May round (and also whether a November round is what we want in the fall for our permanent schedule, though so far it looks like most of us do). The mods would be happy to hear from more of you guys before we make these decisions.

For the previous solstice free-for-all I made a diorama of Buffy and Spike's bedroom in the comics. Then it was Summer, now it is winter -- so I decided to make a Christmas version. Here it is, with a Merry Christmas to all!

This is an entry I had planned but didn't have time for during the last round of Seasonal Spuffy. It's a gifset I made for my last buffyversebingo prompt, "Surrender".

Sunrise manips

Creator: thenewbuzwuzz
Title: Sunrise manips
Setting: The first screencap is, I believe, of Spike right before he says, "So you'll give me what I want. Make me what I was. So Buffy can get what she deserves." But I think it looks similar to Spike in the final scene of "Intervention" too, and upon reflection I don't mind. The second screencap is of Buffy as she's about to say, "What you did, for me, and Dawn ... that was real."
Notes: I don't know about you guys, but over here it's half past eight in the morning as I type this, and daylight is just starting to dawn in this gray, urban light-polluted murk. Sun's not going to rise for another half hour, and then it's due to stay till *winces* 15:37. (Now that I've finished the post and copied it over to LiveJournal, we have 15 minutes left till sunrise, and it's visibly getting lighter, and some birds are flying around and it's very exciting!) When I heard my alarm at seven, the general concept of being woken up shocked and offended me and I snoozed it for an hour. But right now, I'm persuaded that there's some merit in being awake, and I know we will get a little more sunlight tomorrow, and a little more the day after that, and I've always had big feelings about sunrises and about solstices, so even though I hadn't planned to make anything for this free-for-all, I spent most of yesterday in a flow state browsing Flickr for photos of winter solstice sunrises and playing with the hard-light blending mode in Pixlr E.
Maybe I should technically call these wallpapers, but I'm not sure how big a wallpaper should be. The full versions of them are as big as the screencaps were.
