Banners Claims - 12 Years 12 Seasons Challenge
In two days banner claiming opens for the 12 Years 12 Seasons Challenge. Present count has us with 48 banners submitted by the talented artists of our community, and 25 fic sign ups by authors. If you are someone who has been ogling admiring the pretties as they've been loaded to the site, and want to claim one for your very own, then here's what you need to know.
Each banner will ONLY be allocated once, and it will be first come, first serve. So you need to make sure you are ready to hit send on the email when sign ups commence. Sign ups will be for your top three banner choices, in case your first or second is chosen. If you want to list more preferences than that, have at it. But understand you will only be allocated one banner per Challenge you've signed up for.

12 Years 12 Seasons Challenge
The twelfth anniversary of Elysian Fields is fast approaching, and you know what that means...? Challenge month! Welcome to your intro post on the 12 Years 12 Seasons Challenge. This year, we're providing you with a variety of written prompts. When you sign up for the challenge, you (the author) choose a specific prompt that you intend to respond to. The full prompt must be included in your fic. The location of the passage can be used as you see fit. You can use it as a fic opener or somewhere else within the text; where is entirely up to you.
Of course, we want all of our talented banner artists to be included in this challenge - and you will be. Artists, we are asking you to do the same as the authors: pick a prompt that speaks to you and create a banner. Once banners have been made, they will be added to a master list with the prompts. Authors participating in the challenge will be able to request a banner as soon as they have written the beginning/first chapter of their fic.

Welcome to the EF admin team, OffYourBird!
Here at EF, we've had 4 mods for quite a while now. We've all done our best, but with real life rearing its ugly head, and the fact that we're all in wildly different time zones, it's started to feel like we've been spread a little thin in a few areas. We put our heads together and decided that it was time to take on a new mod to help us out. We asked OffYourBird to join us, and she has graciously accepted. She's now officially a member of the admin team, and we are so glad to have her aboard! Most of you already know her because she's active in the shoutbox and she's a prolific author, but we asked her to write a few words to formally introduce herself as a mod. Without further ado...
Hi, all! Many of you know me already, but I've been haunting EF for about two years and apparently our delightful mods finally decided to go with the 'if you can't get rid of them, then you might as well bring them on board' approach. (Just kidding.)
