Yowsas! My, how time flies! I have no excuse for ignoring this community. None whatsoever, and I apologize for doing so. I am going to get myself back on track. If you want to request a couple, let me know in the request. Given that I've not been active in a few years, if you have a claim from that time, you definitely can keep it for a little while longer.

Here's to making a comeback!
As of today, I am removing the claims list and all deadlines. What everyone can do now is write their favourite pairings and post at their leisure using the themes of the community.  All fandoms welcome. All original material welcome. The rest of the rules still apply. If you've asked for a claim, consider this your go-ahead with what you've asked for. Just post something here every now and again so I know people are still participating.

Thanks for partcipating and have fun!
I know this community is quite possibly dead, and that's mostly because of my lack of participation and moderation, but I'm going to try this yet again. Yeah, my real life situation has sucked. No excuses, though.

Anyway, I'm going to attempt yet another comeback and get everything squared away. I've noticed that a few people were quite close to finishing out their claims. I would very much like to see them completed (since you're so close anyway!)  before I do the purge around the first of October. Yes, I know I should do it now and start everything all over again anew, but I don't want the efforts of those who have already posted (and maybe even completed) their claims to go to waste.

So here is the deal: For those of you who have posted and nearly have your claims complete, you're getting one more extension. You have until the first of October to post your snippet of fiction (or your artwork) then add a comment to the I'm Done/I Quit thread to let me know. However, if you're not inclined to complete your claim, you need to let me know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so I can clear that claim out and let someone else have a stab at it.

If I do not hear back from the participants by October 1st, I will assume no one wants their claims any longer. I will then purge the community clean of claims, and, if the person wants that claim back, (s)he will have to wait until November 1st to reclaim. Sorry, guys, but I need to clear things out and allow others to play. I've got a lot of time now so I'm going to do my best to catch up and hopefully whip this place into an awesome writing challenge community.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment here or to send me a PM. I promise I won't bite you! (Unless you ask, of course. ;))

Until October, kids, have fun!
First of all, I'd like to apologize for my lack of involvement with this community, and I really have no good excuses for as to why. I created this place. I need to take better care of it.

Just a few things I would like to address.

One - if you've completed a claim or if you can't finish it, please don't make a separate post for it. There is a thread for dropping claims and for telling me that you've completed your round of challenges. I'm more likely to see the "I'm done" or "I quit" reply in my inbox faster than I will checking the community's posts. It may seem like a bit of a hassle but that is part of the rules.

Two - I will be purging claims that have not been updated on May 1. There will be no extensions granted for this round of purging since I was to have purged the claims list at the beginning of the month. I feel since I've not been keeping up in my mod duties, you've been given extra time. (This means if you've got something written, now would be the time to post what you've written in order to keep your claim.) I will be getting back on to a regular schedule for updating the claims list and clearing out "dead" claims so please check the bio page for when the claims purge is to take place.

Three - I really do wish for people to have fun with the themes and the writing/art. Having fun is the main reason for the creation of this community and its sister communities. If it no longer feels like fun for you, then please do yourself a favour and pull back for a while. I don't want members to hate the stories/artwork they're trying to create.

Finally, I would like to say I don't care if you want to post your stories and/or artwork on another website, like deviantArt and fanfiction.net. The creations are yours to show wherever you want. Just make sure you let others know where the themes came from. ;)

The claims list has been updated so please take a look at it and let me know if there's something awry with what's on there. In the meantime, enjoy the works posted and have fun!

If you lost your pairing, you may claim said pairing once again on June 1st, providing no one else has taken the claim.

Claims are now open!
If you made a claim before February 1, 2008, and have not posted, you have until the weekend to post an art piece or a work of fanfiction at least 100 words long.  If you do not, you will lose your pairing and will not be able to reclaim it until the end of May.  Just a reminder, there are no extensions for this purge as no purge has been done.  Plenty of time has been given.

Title:  Memories Are to be Cherished

Pairing: Sephiroth x Cloud Strife
Warnings:  Disturbing imagery, yaoi, eventual dark situations

Summary:  Let the game of cat and mouse begin.

Perhaps it was the fact a fire remained in those eyes, even after time had passed since they had last seen each other. Perhaps it was the younger man’s determination, his will to succeed no matter the cost to himself. Both were traits anyone in SOLDIER strived to achieve, and the sights of both burned themselves into his memory, as if he possessed a camera in his mind, and his mind taken a photo of those qualities.

Either reason hardly mattered, in Sephiroth’s opinion. He just knew his nemesis possessed something unique, something he at least wanted to taste once in his life.

As he faded away, Sephiroth vowed he would come back, despite Cloud’s words to him. He would not remain a memory, not for anyone.

It's about time I did one of these.  ^_^

Anyway, this is the three week notice for all members who have not posted or made claims after February 1, 2008.  Claims made before that date either need to be updated or dropped.  I am not taking any requests for extensions.  I've not done a purge in almost a year.  I think that's been a long enough extension for everyone, including myself.

The purge will take place on May 1st around midnight.  All participants in danger of losing their claims have until then.

Remember, your claim is only in danger if you have not posted or made a claim before February 1, 2008.

Thank you and love,

The Moderator (that's me.  the one posting this.  ;))
Real life has been hectic on my end but I have not forgotten about this place or any of my other comms, I swear!  ^_^ 

This is just a little FYI.  April 1 the purge notice will be announced, meaning I will be getting back on schedule for purging dead claims.  Please note that I give everyone ample warning about when purges will take place so drabbles/chapters can be posted or extensions requested.

I hope everyone is having fun with their claims and getting some really juicy ideas.  More later!!
