SIGN UPS ARE HERE!!

Welcome to the 2009 season here at spring_with_xan!! reremouse and I (cordelianne) are all fired up for another awesome celebration of Xander!

Important stuff first! Here’s the dates you’ll need to know:

Sign-up Period: Monday March 9, 2009 to Tuesday March 31, 2009 (and continuing throughout the fest, if there are blank days)

You may note that the sign up period ends later than usual. That’s because we’ve decided to change things up a bit and have the Xander spring lovin’ for the months of April and May only. But have no fear – we plan to double up on days if need be so that everyone who wants to post, gets to post! We’re all about the multiple expressions of Xander love here! Also, there’s going to be two free-for-all days, one each month (on the 15th) to provide more opportunities for everyone to post!

Posting Dates: Wednesday April 1, 2009 to Sunday May 31, 2009




There are many ways to celebrate Xander here. You can post:

- One shot fic
- A drabble (or drabbles!)
- Art
- A vid
- A chaptered story
- Finish a WIP
- An esssay about Xander (eg. your favorite Xander scenes, why you like Xander, etc.)
- Recommend your favorite Xander stories ever and share why
- A fanmix
- Co-written and collaborative projects
- Or any combination of the above!

You have an idea that’s not on the list? Ask us when you sign up or email us at spring.with.xan@gmail.com




Prompts:

If you’re looking for inspiration, you can request prompts from the moderators when you sign up! So although this isn’t a ficathon, and you aren’t required to use prompts, we want the option available for those of you who want to participate but are still waiting for that idea to spark!

How will this work? When you signup below you will have the option to include a prompt request. You are not required to use the prompts we provide. They're to inspire you, either directly or indirectly.

Complete your Work In Progress Here:

Yep, we still welcome WIPs! Do you have a WIP that’s been languishing and you’d like to finish it? Well, you can sign up and use those dates as inspiration to complete your fic!

You must post the final chapter (or chapters) to the comm (and link to previously posted ones) by the end of the season. As with WIPs, writing a fic in an existing 'verse is allowed provided that what's posted works as an 'end' should the author never write more in that 'verse.

You need to post the final chapter by the last posting day (May 31).

Two Posting Free-For-All Days:

Wednesday April 15, and Friday May 15 are free-for-all days! What does this mean? Everyone who's got something, post something. Make these days spammy orgies of Xander!




Now for the less fun, but very important Rules:

Our rules are listed on the profile page here. By signing up for this season, you are agreeing that you’ve read and will be abiding by them.

We’d appreciate if you’d take the time now to click over and read them, refresh yourself with them and click back. Thanks!

A couple of things we want to emphasize (some of which aren’t rules per se):

An important new rule: If you did not post last season and did not provide 24hrs notice to your mods, or were removed for violating another rule, you will not be able to sign up for a day this year. However, you will be welcome to participate on the free-for-all days and will be welcome back next year.

Tagging:
Don’t worry about tagging, we’ll be doing that this year!

Beta’ing:
Please try to get your fic beta'ed before posting – your readers (and your mods) will be most appreciative!

Adult Content Settings:
If posting adult concepts or explicit adult content you must:
a) Label your post appropriately with ratings and (if applicable) warnings.
b) Select the appropriate LJ filter, ie. Either “adult concepts” or “explicit adult content.” It is your responsibility to ensure you do this when posting to the community.

What’s Not Allowed and What Is:
Underage sex and bestiality are a no-go here. If you are writing a teen romance that’s rated teen or less, that’s absolutely fine.




Because of our shorter time frame, we’re going to ask that you structure your requests in a different way: Please provide three dates in order of preference and also the total number of days you actually want to have to post on.

The days will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis so it’ll still be best to see if your first choice is already listed as someone else’s. We will work to fill all the days first, and then we will look at the possibility of doubling up and having people share posting days.

Also if we know how many days you’d like total, that will ensure we give you the amount of days you’d like. Please choose up to a maximum of 3 days.

If you have any questions, email us at spring.with.xan@gmail.com.

Please include the following in your comment:

1st Date preference:

The number of days total you want (1, 2 or 3 days):

If you want us to give you prompts, also include the following:
