So, that means, it's time for our traditional banner competition!!
The theme this round is Enemies With Benefits interpret that as you will, or not, it's up to you.
Here are the rules for the challenge:
- You can submit up to three banners.
- Banners must have a width of 900 pixels wide. We are more flexible with the height, it can be as small as 250 or as large as 400 (anywhere in between is fine too.)
- Banners must be new and anonymous, so please do not post your banners elsewhere, until the results have been posted.
- Submit entries as a comment to this post (either on LiveJournal or Dreamwidth.) All comments will be screened.
- The deadline is May 3rd, midnight(EST).
- If you don't have a DW or LJ, you can email the banner to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to put Banner in the subject line.
- After the winner is announced, the winner will be asked to "sign" their banner. Please remember to leave room on your banner for your tag/signature.
- When submitting a banner, give us both the image and the URL. (See example below)
The poll with all the pretties will go up the day or so after the deadline.
Past banners can be seen here
Any questions, just ask!
Have fun and show us your fabulous work!!
Just a brief PSA that a Spuffy event started today over on Elysian Fields. So if anyone could use some distraction in the form of shiny new fic, there's going to be plenty of that on EF for the entire month of April.
And after that, of course, it will be almost time for Seasonal Spuffy! As I'm sure you know, our spring round starts on May 10; here's the full schedule in the signup post in case someone missed it. If you've been wondering about the banner contest - that's going to officially open Soon. (Next week, I believe.)
Take care, and see you around!
The Spring 2020 round will run from Sunday, May 10, through Monday, May 25, on LiveJournal and Dreamwidth.
The theme for this round is Enemies With Benefits. Thank you to hollydb for the suggestion! As always, the theme exists to inspire, not to limit: creators are free to interpret the theme however they wish or do their own thing instead.
You may sign up for a posting day by choosing a day in the schedule and leaving a comment on this post. (Login is not necessary for that; if you don't see the comment button, keep scrolling.) Posting days are claimed on a first-come, first-served basis, but days can be shared once enough people sign up.
ETA: all posting days are filled, but you're welcome to share a posting day with someone! Please comment on this post if you'd like that, and we will find someone who's willing to share their day with you.
We're also offering some free-for-all days: May 10, May 24, and May 25. On the free-for-all days, anybody may post without signup, as long as they do it the Seasonal Spuffy way.
Here's our SCHEDULE:
Plan to create an original, never-before-posted Spike/Buffy fanwork to share with the community! :) We welcome all kinds of fic, art, and other fanworks. WIPs are okay, and so are crossovers. For the few formats 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 we don't accept all-human AUs. All-penguin AUs, however, are enthusiastically welcomed.
Any questions, please always feel free to ask—for example, by commenting on a recent mod post such as this one or emailing email@example.com.
Have fun, everyone! We can't wait to see what you'll create. <3
What should Round 28 of Seasonal Spuffy be all about?
If the poll won't let you vote, feel free to vote in a comment. :)
May the best theme win!
This poll is also available in Google Forms for anyone who prefers not to use LiveJournal. Please only fill out one copy of the poll - thank you!
ETA: we now have enough theme suggestions, so please just ignore the last question. :)
What would you like to do for the Spring 2020 round of Seasonal Spuffy?

Once we have everyone's input, we'll pick a theme, post a schedule for signup, and get going on the banner contest. :)

The mods will be happy to answer any questions you might have; you can contact us in a bunch of ways including by commenting on a recent mod post such as this or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's to another great round!
Sometimes less is more, and this free-for-all we had a few amazing works put up by some great creators. Once again we'd like to give major thanks to everyone who posted for the event!
Without further ado, have some links:( Collapse )
It's after midnight everywhere in the world, and that means this year's winter solstice free-for-all has come to a close. Huge thanks goes out to everyone who participated! Keep an eye out for the index post, and we hope to see you in the next round!
Title: Make Up
A/N: I'm already committed to posting one fic a day up until Christmas on my own journal, so I figured I'd just post this one here for the event and link it on mine instead! This is lightly inspired by an Ariana Grande song called Make Up, and also the Buffyverse Bingo prompt "Seeing Red" which I wanted to take in a different direction than just writing around the episode.
Also there's an AO3 tag called "no beta we die like men" and I feel like that fits this situation. Please let me know any mistakes you find so I can correct 'em.( Collapse )
