Welcome to 15_photos! This is a friendly, low-pressure community for writers and artists who want to explore and develop their skills through and inspired the original 30 Kisses Themes. People of all fandoms are invited to participate and couples of all orientations are welcome. Neither homophobia nor heterophobia will be tolerated.

Feel free to join just to enjoy the fanworks, but don't be intimidated. Writers and artists of all levels are welcome to participate.

The Themes (as inspired by 30_kisses, 30_hugs, 30_romances, _50gravi_, and other LJ writing communities.)

01. a day at the beach
02. nudity
03. family gathering
04. unsuspecting
05. picnic
06. a walk in the park
07. disastrous vacation
08. a moment to share
09. an embarrassing moment
10. my little super model
11. smile!
12. photos never lie
13. professional vs amateur
14. digital vs old-fashioned
15. photo

How It Works


(rules ripped from 30_kisses)

[x] Claims: You (and up to one other collaborator) may claim up to two [2] couples at a time. The only caveat is that they must be from two different fandoms. Please note that if you claim two couples, you are committing yourself to complete all fifteen themes for each of the two couples. When a couple is claimed, it counts for both writing and art. No one is required to do both, but it's definitely encouraged.

[x] Specifics: Original characters, original stories, crossovers between two fandoms, AU stories, RPS, and songfics are all acceptable. Icons and/or banners are not. (Try iconfiend100 for things such as that.)

[x] Request: at this post with the subject line "photo request". Make sure you include the full names of both characters and the fandom that they are from. (And please check the list of claimed couples first to make sure they aren't already taken.) The claims list will be updated at least once a week, maybe even quicker. I'd like to try and get back with everyone ASAP.

[x] Done!: When you are done with a couple or decide that you can't/don't want to finish, please leave a comment in this entry. You cannot request a transfer of your couple to another person but someone else is free to request it as soon as you drop it.

[x] Posting: Only fic/art may be posted to this community. (Advertisements for other communities are absolutely not tolerated.) You may use fake cuts, but you must have the correct subject and header information as well as a link to it's actual location.

[x] Archives: All entries are archived once a week. Please let two weeks pass before notifying us of a missing memory. If you do not want your entry archived, please state so in the header.

[x] Viewing/Watching the Community: This is an absolute must. Purges are announced and it is up to the author/artist to keep their claims updated or to ask for an extension.


____ The Idea


[x] Order: Themes do not have to be written in any particular order.

[x] Interpretation: Feel free to interpret each theme however you wish. Just remember, a photo must be involved. It doesn't need to be the focal point, but it must be in there one way or another. The interpretation of how the photo is taken or appears, however, is entirely up to you.

[x] Style: The style of your entries is completely up to you. For authors, it can be as short as a paragraph, or as long as a multi-chaptered novel. For artists, it can be a full watercolor or the five-minute sketch you did before class. All that's important is capturing the feeling of the theme.

[x] Works in Progress: You may submit works that are in progress, but please don't make a habit of submitting works that you've already finished and made public.


____ Posting


[x] Format: When you post, please use the following format:

Subject line:
Title (fandom, pairing, challenge #)
For example, the subject line for my drabble for challenge #07 (disastrous vacation) would be: Remind Me Never to Go There Again (Gravitation, Tohma Seguchi x Sakano, #07). Note: I'm not going to be too picky about subject lines. Just keep the entries fanfic/fanart related. :)

Title:
Author/Artist:
Pairing:
Fandom:
Theme: (include the # and the theme)
Disclaimer: (yes, you need one every time! unless you're doing your own original work, in which case I'd suggest including a claimer.) IF YOUR FANDOM INVOLVES REAL PEOPLE, your disclaimer MUST state that your fanworks are purely fictional and do not imply any actual relationship or event.
Warnings:

[x] LJ-cut: Anything longer than a paragraph and ALL artwork must be put behind an LJ-cut.

[x] Ratings: All ratings are welcome, but anything of an R or higher rating must be clearly marked as such in front of the LJ-cut.

[x] Plagiarism: will absolutely not be tolerated.

[x] Feedback: is encouraged. Please state the type of feedback that you're looking for as well.

[x] Warnings: These are a must if your story contains spoilers or male pregnancy or other "squicky" ideas.
