Suggestions and Feedback  
As stated in the profile, the first three months will be considered a trial period to see how active this community can be within that time. We ask that the members of this community provide feedback during that time to let us know what works, what doesn’t, and what you would like to see improved.

Also, if you have suggestions for prompts, you can comment here with some of those ideas and we will take each one into consideration.

The format we use for prompts is:

Word Count – 100 to 1000, 1000 to 3000, or 3000 to 5000
Character(s) - maximum of three
Pairings – just one, please; or state optional, any, or none if you’d prefer.
Bonus Guidelines – give extra challenges that don’t necessarily have to be used.

Let’s make this community last, guys. We’ll work hard for you, so work hard for us by contributing.

That's all for now. Welcome to the write_and_run , everyone!

Hi! I just want to thank you so much for taking time and effort to organise this wonderful comm (: I love writing for KHR but I never have enough muse for it, haha. I like the idea of making prompts character/pairing based because it lets authors move out of their comfort zones, but to a small extent I find that restricting as well, but that's just my opinion (:

Just a suggestion from me, but maybe you can split the challenges into 'character-based' and 'prompt-based' ones? For the latter, you could just post a prompt and let writers run wild and do whatever they want with it, and use whichever characters they feel like. And prompts could shy away from simply words, like you could use poems, pictures, songs etc as a prompt instead (assuming that isn't already happening) (:

I haven't come up with a specific prompt yet but I'll try to soon!

Hello! Hehe...We should be thanking you for taking interest in this, so thank you. :)

Regarding the prompt-based ones, we might do some prompts with no characters or pairings and the participants get to choose themselves, but otherwise, most times the prompts will include characters or pairings that are mandatory to include in the fic.

I see... Poems, pictures and songs... I'll discuss that with the other mod.

Thanks for your suggestions! We'll take it into consideration on how to improve this community and make our members happy too. :D

Hello there^^ I'm really interested in participating in this community, will that be reading&reviewing or writing.
Though I have already written for DC/MK, I'm quite new around the fandom and I never actually wrote anything officially for KHR, but I'm working on that! More so, I have a really good beta, so I hope the grammar & coherence in my stories will be good enough!
Anyway! I think I should say the most important thing now: I'll be writing yaoi/shounen ai. The only pairings male-female that I may make some references to are Tsuna/Chrome & Mukuro/Chrome.
My favourite pairings are Hibari/Tsuna & Giotto/Tsuna. I really like Tsuna/Enma, and Gokudera/Tsuna is not that bad. Yamamoto/Gokudera is good as well^^
However, I understand people liking other pairings and I really respect everyone's preferences! I come in peace xD
I think that's it, I should stop the ramble! I'm not posting in the name of a community, that's okay, right? Any questions, don't doubt asking me!

Kinda late to propose sth for Hibari-san's birthday, right?

Thanks for posting this up here and welcome to community~! We look forward to seeing future stories from you and good luck. We hope the prompts will be enjoyable for you, or at least a majority of 'em!

We already have the first prompt set, actually. Sorry about that! You're free to suggest a prompt you'd like to see with Hibari, though, for future use? We'd love to hear any ideas you have!

Lots of nice prompts! Thanks so much for sharing and we'll make sure these get saved in our contest prompt .doc, most definitely ^^

As for the sentence prompts, yup. We'll be using some that are like that as well. We're planning a rotation right now for prompts, though. First optional/no pairing, then a pairing prompt, and lastly open choice prompts. We'll alternate along those lines.

(And really loved that our destiny prompt, saved that one as well.)
Елен Гриевесellen_grieves on May 5th, 2011 05:32 am (UTC)
Also, I wanted to make a suggestion of 'sentence or phrase prompts'?

Like for ex. a prompt can be: our destiny is written in the stars... the writer would have to use that phrase or sentence somewhere in their writing or base it on that. (Ex. Uni comments to Tsuna that every person's destiny is written in the stars and that destiny can't be changed etc.)
fuwacchifuwacchi on May 5th, 2011 06:30 am (UTC)
That's a lot of prompts you have there, Cain.

I'll copy it down for future use. Thanks for your contribution. ^^

And yeah, we actually have some prompts with a sentence. -coughs- Most of our prompts are sentences actually. Thanks for your suggestion. (:

HI! I was just wondering when you plan to start? I'd like to contribute as a write ;]
lost in thought100paperfans on May 5th, 2011 11:16 pm (UTC)
Just two more days and then we'll have the first prompt up! :3 We plan to start Saturday, May 7th. We're just giving the community a chance to gain members and for us to make sure everything is in order, haha.

Can't wait to see what you come up with for our first prompt~

This is a really awesome idea. I'm super new to the fandom aspect of KHR, so this could be a great way to see what's out there and really get involved.

I'm really looking forward to this now. :)
fuwacchifuwacchi on May 6th, 2011 05:55 am (UTC)
Thanks for taking interest in our comm and welcome~ We hope to see you there on Saturday when it officially opens. :)

Hope you enjoy your stay. <3

Xanxus/Levi—imagination; "was the loyalty forced subconsciously?"

Belphegor/Fran—wounds; "the cuts made his indifference grow."

Levi/Kyouya—facial hair; "they were mature in different ways."

Bluebell—immaturity; "the perks of being under appreciated."

Haru/Kyoko—sweetness; "cakes were overrated anyway."

Byakuran—white; "attraction to purity."

Mukuro/Chrome—make believe; "anything could be an illusion."

Mukuro/Dino—inevitable; "collision."

Really like the Bluebell one! Thanks for sharing more prompts with us.

Re: Let's get some hot Levi and Kyouya action going, neh? :'D
Nice prompts! Added them to our list. Thanks for sharing them ^^

So I've noticed that for the judging, the character interpretation catagory says

"10 points for each character (who is included in the prompt) that remains in character. "

But most people are grading as if 10 is the max. So which should really be followed?
fuwacchifuwacchi on May 22nd, 2011 01:01 pm (UTC)
What is meant by "who is included in the prompt" is the characters that are included when the prompt was posted up. For the first round, only Tsuna was included so ten points is the max one can give.

However, if most or all of the characters who are included in the fic (but not included in the prompt) is OoC, you will also lose some points for character interpretation.

I hope that answers your questions. :)

What about creating a new page for fic masterlist? Alphabetical order preferred; it can be sorted by author's user name, by the fic title or the lead character's name.

Do authors have to submit the entry to their own journal or are they allowed to post the stories to this community?
fuwacchifuwacchi on May 23rd, 2011 06:30 am (UTC)
I've already considered creating a new page for the fic masterlist actually, but thank you for the suggestion! More information about that will be put up later.

Participants are allowed to post their entries under a LJ cut on the community, or post their entry on their journal and linking back to it on the community. Any is fine, we don't mind as long as the fic is there.
