The final day of Lilith Faire. Enjoy it!

Main Stage: Supergirl, Krystal Harris
Second Stage: Follow Your Arrow, Kacey Musgraves
Village Stage: Angels & Airwaves, Angel Haze <-- suicide mention in this one.


ETA: It has come to my attention that Angel Haze is actually agender, not female. This is completely on me, and I apologize for misgendering them. It was never my intention. The song still qualifies for Lilith Faire since it's a bit late to fix it, but I do want to reiterate my apology and assure you folks that I will not misgender them again.

You may write three fics every day, if all three songs catch your fancy or spark something. One to 500 words will get you one novelty bead, and so on for each additional 500 words. There may also be special bonus novelty beads for completing all three fics each day and for completing all fics. Today's songs:

Main Stage: No Fear, Terri Clark
Second Stage: South Tacoma Way, Neko Case
Village Stage: Things I'll Never Say, Avril Lavigne

Our annual Dead Time prompts and a fan favorite event!

-Dead-Time meaning no more than one hour can be spent on any stories produced (it's like flash fiction that way).

-And you must use a prompt before pulling a new one, although you can mulligan if nothing comes to you in a day.

-Stories to run in the comm at 1 novelty bead per post. You can pull as many as you want through the event. The posting limit will be raised to seven stories per day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

And as always, prompts are surreal finds from around tumblr. GET READY WRITERS YOUR MOMENT OF GLORY APPROACHES.

Hello, Rainbowficcers! We have some business to take care of.

First of all, Kon-Mari technically ended on June 20th, but since the mods (and by the mods I mean me) were busy (and by busy I mean was a total flake), we are extending it to today, with a special two-week amnesty period. You have until July 9th to finish any of the challenges or your goals. Post here to claim your novelty beads!

Secondly, this summer we are having our own RainbowFic Summer Olympics!

Events are as follows )

And of course, we haven't forgotten our two annual challenges. This year's special color, Olympic Gold! Earn ten novelty beads for completing this during the Olympics event.

Olympic Gold

1. medal
2. team
3. gold
4. silver
5. bronze
6. games
7. summer
8. winter
9. event
10. athlete
11. village
12. torch
13. trial
14. rings
15. international


Second, the Summer Blockbuster! Do a mosaic of at least 2,500 words using your favorite action-oriented media source as the second canon. This year, get bonus points for using a canon other than Star Wars or Pacific Rim. Five novelty beads for 2500 words, plus an extra novelty bead for every 500 words more, additional bonus novelty beads for using different canons to be determined.

GET EXCITED, WRITERS. I know I'm ready!

The lusty month of May! The weather's finally warming up, so let's heat up the comm too. Summer's not the only thing that's coming.

This challenge has three levels:

1. Cuddling - characters being physically close, hugging, holding hands, snuggling, in all manner of non-sexual and platonic ways.
2. Intense Cuddling - characters engaging in the tomfoolery that earns one an R or X rating.
3. Molotov Cocktail - we don't have time for sex! characters plotting or bringing about the downfall of governments, corporations and conspiracies against the people.


Each story written for this challenge earns a novelty bead for the first thousand words, an extra bead for each thousand words above that (eg, three novelty beads for three thousand words), and ten novelty beads for anything over five thousand words. This challenge will last until the beginning of the Great Summer Challenge.

Go forth, writers! Set the comm on fire!
