[MOD POST] CLAIM YOUR PROMPTS HERE

Are you all ready to claim your prompts? Here's the prompt post! I'm extremely sorry for the delay on this. I HAVE extended fluffathon's deadline ten days to try and make up for it.

There are so many prompts that we had to split it up into TWO POSTS. Please reply to THIS post with your claims.

The prompt list is divided up first by character, and then by pairing. Please read the following carefully:

-Pairings are listed ALPHABETICALLY, and the prompts are NOT listed once under each character. Here's an example:

America/Japan, A chaste kiss during the westernization period.

Would be listed under AMERICA but not under JAPAN. This means that a lot of characters don't have a section, or have a small section despite being a popular character. For example, SPAIN'S section only has one prompt, and is in fact, one of the last characters listed, whereas early alphabet characters like America and Canada's sections are particularly large. If you're someone who is just interested in writing for a particular character and aren't looking for a specific pairing, it might be in your best interest to use the F3 button and search for them. AMERICA is first character-wise, but I have listed prompts that allow ANY pairing before him.

-If you listed more than one pairing option for your prompt, it is listed once under each pairing. It CAN BE CLAIMED ONCE FOR EACH PAIRING. Example:

Sewing lessons with USUK, FrUK or NetherlandsCanada.

Is listed under America ---- AmericaxEngland, England ---- EnglandxFrance, and Canada ---- CanadaxNetherlands.

It may be claimed once for each pairing, thus three people could have this claim. You must tell me what pairing you're doing it for. If you sign up for CanadaxNetherlands, you cannot later change it to AmericaxEngland (unless no one else has claimed it there).

-There are a few prompts that ask for a couple of pairings to be included in the story (i.e. a 'double date' prompt). In those situations, only one person can claim them, but I've listed a 'see also' for the first place it's shown. For example, a CanadaxUkraine and BelarusxRussia double-date fic would be listed in BelarusxRussia, but down in CanadaxUkraine it will say 'see also: BelarusxRussia.' Hope that works for you!

-Country names are list in their 'short' versions. America is under AMERICA, not the United States of America, for example. The Italy brothers are listed as ITALY (NORTH) and ITALY (SOUTH) respectively. Also, there is a section just labeled NORDICS, because we had a couple of prompts that involved all five of them and allowed any Nordic pairing. The Nordic characters have individual sections as well.

-Right now you may claim ONE PROMPT, although eventually you'll be able to claim up to THREE. Here is the prompt claiming schedule:

June 30-July 2- Everyone may claim one prompt.
July 3-5- Everyone may claim a second prompt. If you haven't claimed any yet, you can claim two here.
July 6-8- Everyone may claim a third prompt. If you haven't claimed any, you may claim up to three here (similarly, if you've claimed one, you may claim two more).
June 30-September 15th- Posting period! Remaining prompts can STILL be claimed up to the point when posting closes in September. New participants are also welcome to come in and claim at any time. If you wish to give up a prompt, I will put it back in the post and someone else can claim it.

I will do a post to the community on these dates to remind you. Please do not go claim your second prompt UNTIL I do that reminder post. Barring anything coming up, I'll do them right at midnight my time.

-If you did not reply to the signup post, you may still claim. We made sure there were plenty of extra prompts in the case of that situation. It would be helpful if you could follow up your claiming by replying to the signup post though, just for number's sake.

-Once something is claimed, I will put a strike through and the name of the member who claimed it next to it.

-You cannot claim your own prompt. If, once it gets close to the end, one of your prompts is still available and you wish to claim it, you may. But not until then. I'll make a post as to when this is okay.

-To claim, please use the following format:

I am claiming the following prompt:

Romano taking Spain clothes shopping with Italian fashionista action.

I hope this all makes sense to you! If it doesn't, feel free to ask me a question in THIS post.

Lastly and most importantly, I want to thank sirvalkyrie for coding and setting up this post. You were so, so appreciated. ♥ ♥

PROMPT POST ONE- AMERICA THROUGH DENMARK

PROMPT POST TWO- ENGLAND THROUGH THAILAND

Have fun!

[MOD POST] Posting guidelines, other info

Posting is now open! That means that you can post your fanworks whenever you are ready. Here's what you need to know before posting:

FANFIC POSTING FORMAT:

Title:
Author: (You of course)
Rating/Warnings:
Pairing(s): Please include all pairings featured. If your prompt asked for LithuaniaxPoland, but you have other background pairings, those need to be listed as well.
Prompt: Please put the prompt you've claimed here. If you'd also like to include a summary of your own writing, that's fine. Put it below 'prompt' under 'summary.' That's totally optional though.
Notes: You can include something here if you'd like to, but it's up to you. Otherwise, just don't include it.

Optional: You may also include a word count, genres, anything else you'd like to, really.

FANART/FANCOMIC POSTING FORMAT:

Title: This is OPTIONAL
Artist: You of course.
Rating/Warnings:
Pairing(s): Please include all pairings featured. If your prompt asked for LithuaniaxPoland, but you have other background pairings in the image or comic, those need to be listed as well.
Prompt: Please put the prompt you've claimed here. If you'd also like to include a summary of your own writing, that's fine. Put it below 'prompt' under 'summary.' That's totally optional though.
Notes: You can include something here if you'd like to, but it's up to you. Otherwise, just don't include it.

If you wish to include a PREVIEW image, that is fine. Please make sure that it is no larger than 300x300 and that it is safe for work. :)

ALL FANWORKS MUST BE LJ-CUT.

Please leave the header before the cut though.

TAGGING:

All fanworks should be tagged with the following:

-fanfiction, fanart, or fancomic, depending on which one it is.

-rating: G-PG, rating: PG-13, rating: R-NC-17. Please pick the one if fits best.

-rating: mature- sex. If it has mature sexual content, please lock your post to this community and include this tag.

-pairing: _____. All pairings that have been claimed will have tags (I will make ones that don't exist as claims are made). They are listed by what name comes first alphabetically.Also, if you're one of the members that claimed an AnyonexAnyone prompt, and you do a fanwork for a pairing that does not have a tag, I'll make sure and create one for you and tag it myself.

-character: ____. I am making tags for every Hetalia character, regardless as to if they have a prompt claimed or not. You may tag any character that features prominently in your fic, regardless of whether they are part of the romantic pairing. For example, if I write an AmericaxEngland fic that has Japan in a major role, I'd tag character: america, character: england, and character: japan.

Once the fluffathon is over, I will delete any tags that have not been used.

OTHER STUFF:

-You CAN post chaptered fanfics or fancomics here. They do not all need to be lumped in one post. You're welcome to do a post a chapter as you write/draw. If you decide to do a chaptered fanwork, please make sure each post links back to the previous parts.

-Your post may link to a writing journal or art journal. That's fine. You may also link it to deviantart, fanfiction.net, etc. Please make sure the post you are linking to is NOT locked though. Even if you usually do your writing or art journal friends only, we ask that you keep this post public so that everyone can look at it. Of course, you can also just post your fanwork directly to the community. You're also welcome to crosspost your fanwork to any community.

-The posting period lasts from NOW (as in right now), until September 15th.

I think that covers just about everything. Please direct any questions to THIS post. Good luck, and I can't wait to see all the amazing fanworks!
