We’re fast approaching the beginning of October, which means it’s time for a little Q&A about the Called Challenge.
Pull up a headstone and get comfy. This post should cover everything, but if there's a burning question you have or something else you're curious about, please let us know in the comments and we'll get back to you ASAP.
How and when do I post my story?
Starting at midnight on October 1 (site time, which is Eastern US time-it's listed under the shoutbox), you'll see a checkbox on the page where you add a new story:
As soon as you see that box, you're free to post. If your story is part of the challenge, check the box and you're good to go.
This message is going to be kept short and sweet. Timezone differences and spotty wifi has meant this post has gone up several hours later than it usually would for this stage of an event. My bad.
Not only does this news post share with you all the link to the banner request master list, but since the site clock has ticked over to the 12th of September that means the requests are officially live and up for grabs.
If you are an artist in the Elysian Fields community, and you're thinking about signing up to create one of the banners (or if you're just curious to get a sneak peak of some of the fic that will hit the archive come October) then you can browse the list HERE.
Artists, make sure you read over the request information carefully if you’re thinking of claiming one of the art requests.
With author emails coming in thick and fast for the Called Challenge, I’d rate the enthusiasm level on par with s01e10 Nightmares Willow making fun of Xander for his clown fear. Giddy and bubbly and with a grin from ear to ear.
For any fence-sitting, Watcher-like authors currently pondering the decision of whether or not to sign up: don’t take your brooding lessons from Angel… Be like Spike and swagger up to the challenge like you’re the biggest bad in the room.
Come on, sign up. You know you wanna.
For participating authors: if your visualisation of your fic is as clear as Dru’s visions of stars on the ceiling, and you can picture the art that has to accompany your words, now is the time to get those banner requests in.
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 four dot points...
