First to the moderators, if this isn't allowed, I'm sorry, but I didn't see where it said it wasn't. Delete it, or ask me and I'll remove it. I honestly did check, but I could have overlooked something somewhere. I also fully accept that this is not an excuse and take the blame that is due me if I've failed to read something important.
Now to the rest of my friendly comm mates! :-) Many of you are probably familiar with the concept of land comms where the members compete in various activities to see who can gain the most points or reach a goal line first. I thought it was a really neat concept when I first came across it but quickly found myself bored with the art competitions. It's the fan fic I want, and all fan fic that I've geared this new land comm after.
There are five teams -- one for comics, one for movies, one for TV shows, one for cartoons and anime, and one for books --, and each team will be striving to reach 5,000 points first. Challenges will be both weekly (drabbles/short fics -- from 100 to 1,000 words) and monthly (longer fics -- 1,000 words and longer). Other things may also be done to earn points as we go along.
The URL is http://community.livejournal.com/fanficland, but there is a simple form that must be filled out before memberships can be approved. The form is posted in the first message on the board and should be answered in a comment left to that message. Please do not reply to this post if you are interested but post over at Fan Fic Land if you are as this is the only time I plan on bothering this wonderful comm with my own comm.
I hope to see at least some of you there! Thanks to the mods for this chance to share. Thank you all for taking the time to read this post and for all the talent, work, and effort you already put into making the world of fan fic a bigger, brighter, and better place for us all!
Thank you, Zen, for letting me use your artwork! Unfortunately, the layouts are driving me insane!!!! Does the artwork scroll? No, it tiles. Fine. I'll deal. OK. Want to throttle Computer Monkey!!!! I have had NO SLEEP! I may become a mutation of some sort...very soon. And I still need to make Prey icons ::Innogen Pulls Hair Out::
Sounds:computer protesting head slamming against it

More changes are coming soon to the LJ Prey Community. I'm waiting on the word for permission to use some artwork, so hopefully things will be far more livelier looking around here. I'm crossing my fingers.
Okay, I've been up 36 hours straight now. Time for bed.
