A group of Saiyuki writers have come together in the interest of supporting diversity in fanfiction. This community is the result. We love fanfiction. We love the ideas, the creativity and effort that goes into a good, well-written piece. Particularly romance ones, which most of us are here to support in one way or another. Unfortunately, the quality and diversity of fics lately seems to have thinned out. We want to revive it, somehow, and hopefully this is a good place to start.
Rules and Regulations for all fanfiction and art:
1: All pairings welcome. This is from tv canon, manga canon. This is pairings some hate, incest, squick, shounen-ai/yaoi, shoujou-ai/yuri, *gasp* hentai(as in perversions, not tentacle rape, got it?), het pairings. Anything(except mary sues) goes. The type of fiction is welcome as well. General, comedy, whatever! All artists welcome, whether it be of the word, or the paintbrush.
2: Try something new. If you specialize in one pairing, try another. If you like a yaoi/shounen-ai, try yuri/shoujou-ai, or just pick a different pairing that's entirely different than what you normally write or draw. If you do drama, try comedy. If you specialize in romance--try straight drama. If you go for comedy, try general fiction. It wouldn't be a challenge if you didn't have something different to see what you are capable of writing or drawing, now would it? These are only suggestions, let your imagination do the rest....
3: No original characters, unless they are background to your story and help move it along in some way or another. No Mary Sues, no exceptions. Main characters must be someone from either the animated series in its many incarnations, or the animated movie or the manga. Gensomaden Saiyuki, Saiyuki:Gaiden, Saiyuki:Reload, Saiyuki:Reload Gunlock, Saiyuki: Requiem. No exceptions here either.
4: All entries must be behind a LJ Cut-tag. No exceptions.
5: Your Format: to be used for all entries. The story is NOT required to mention the challenge in its title, by the way.
Author: Rating: (think movie ratings; G, PG, PG-13,R, NC-17) Description: story, art, behind a LJ cut
6: Have a little fun. ^_^
Please observe a few guidelines:
-NO fighting. We're here to build our fandom up, not tear it down. Anyone who wants to stir up shit is gone. End of story.
-Spamming sucks. This also means flaming as well. If it happens, the user will be banned from this community. This usually isn't much of a problem, but I'm putting it in here just in case.
-Goku owns you al---er.... I mean, we love you, Sanzo! Um..Gojyo? Sorry.. Hakkai--put that away! You're scaring me...
--Enjoy yourself. Half the fun of writing is the challenge, or in the case of the visual artists, the drawing. Do it because you love it,and this fandom.
