Get Ready for the 12 Years 12 Seasons Challenge!
Did anyone notice that we're only hours away from October and the 12 Years 12 Season Challenge? We're definitely not sitting here staring at the site time clock.
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, please let us know in the comments. There's a lot of information here, but please read the whole post in order to learn about all the amazing things happening this month...
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 new checkbox on the page where you add a new story:
As soon as you see that box, you're free to post. If you're adding a new story that is part of the challenge, check the box and you're good to go.

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 51 banners submitted by the talented artists of our community, and 30 fic sign ups by authors. You can see the banners HERE. 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.

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.
What if you're not an author or an...
