Irishrose (10/19 10:49pm): I third the rec for "What Happens In Quarantine...", and the tissue recommendation. If you like Shakespeare it's doubly delicious and tear jerking.

OffYourBird (10/18 08:41pm): @Firebeca: that was a fic answering this challenge, not the challenge itself.
slaymesoftly (10/18 08:19pm): I like that challenge.... It has a lot of AU possibilities.
Firebeca (10/18 08:09pm): I think it may be Etched in stone, I canít remember the authors name but itís been removed
OffYourBird (10/18 07:59pm): @ZombieRed: is it this one? https://dark-solace.org/...d=366
ZombieRed (10/18 07:10pm): Hey, all. I'm trying to find a challenge prompt that I swear I saw before. It's something like Spike is a statue in one of the cemeteries and Buffy talks to him every night, not knowing that he's trapped in the statue? Thanks~
ciderhatz (10/18 02:11am): @starrynight7 oh wow I think you're right. I hadn't realized all her stories were taken down.

Ready to get Trapped by new fic?

Anyone feeling a little anxious? Restless? Trapped? Well never fear, that’s just your brain preparing you for the flood of AWESOMENESS that is new fic about to hit the site.

We’re almost to October and that means Trapped Challenge month is about to commence. With such an adaptable theme, we’re buzzing with excitement about the soon-to-be posted gems written in celebration of the 14th birthday of Elysian Fields.

Mods Holly and OffYourBird have joined forces and combined their talents to present to all of you—the readers, writers, artists, betas and lurkers of our site—a fantabulous new skin. It will be set as the site default skin for the month of October. To take a peak or switch your current skin out, make sure to change it in your preferences page. It is called Trapped.

In order to make sure everyone understands all that's going on, we'll try to cover everything here. If there's something you're not sure about...

Trapped Challenge - banner requests

Hi everyone,

First of all, my apologies that this post comes to you all a few days late. RL has been a rollercoaster of lows and highs for me the last few weeks.

The kick off to the Trapped Challenge has been great so far, and I can't wait to read all of the future challenge fic by the actors who've signed up. For anyone sitting on the fence of decision making, consider this your literal push. Come on, sign up. You know you wanna. 

For participating authors, if inspiration has already struck and you're looking to for some art to accompany your words for when you post the story in October, then here is the info you need to know regarding banner requests.

All you need to do is shoot me an email (address available at the bottom of this post) with a combination of the following information. The first three dot points are required, the rest are optional. So, if you are looking for something specific, give me as much information as you think the artist will need. Alternatively, if you are open to the artist experimenting, then just give me the required info.

Required information:
