As this community will contain fanfiction of an adult, both homoerotic and heterosexual, nature, you should be over the age of consent within your own country to join.
The community is both slash and het friendly. This means it will contain fanfiction of an adult, both homoerotic and heterosexual nature. Thus, if the idea of a romantic and/or sexual relationship between two people of the same gender or two people of opposite genders offends or upsets you, and/or you are under the age of consent within your country, then this community is not for you.
Flaming will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Let's all play nicely together and remember this credo: 'mutual respect'.
This Community is a mixture of the challenge community/ficathon/commentathon/storyathon/promptathon - with one exception: each half of the pairing, in the stories, has to be aged forty or older. It doesn't mean that they have to be forty in the television series, film, book, whatever, just that in the story they have to be over forty.
Both slash and het pairings from any and all fandoms are welcome - just make sure that in the story the pair is each over forty. RPF is allowed, providing the actors/actresses are 40+
Each challenge, which will occur at yet-to-be-decided intervals will have a theme, e.g. established relationship, first time, hurt/comfort, etc. And we can tell you that the first one will be 'Established Relationship'.
For each challenge one of us will make a post inviting prompts, and give you a deadline by which the prompts need to be submitted.
The prompts can be:
A fandom and a prompt, e.g. NCIS. ?/?. Dancing
A fandom, a character and a prompt, e.g. Due South. Fraser/?. Books
A fandom, a pairing and a prompt, e.g. The Professionals. Bodie/Doyle. Wine
Just a prompt - i.e. suitable for any fandom/pairing) e.g. ?. ?/?. Flowers
And you can mix and match when submitting, or just submit one type.
We will then compile the prompts into a list, which we will then post. From that post you will be able to select the prompt which you wish to use in your story.
There will be no limit on the number of prompts you may submit.
Submitting a prompt doesn't mean you have to take part.
You can take part without submitting a prompt.
You may use your own prompt.
There is no limit on the number of stories you submit.
More than one person may use exactly the same prompt.
There are no sign ups; you just pick your prompt(s) and write your story(ies) and post it(them).
