Welcome!

If you're seeing this post at the top of all the other posts, it's because this comm is a closed community. That means that in order to join, you have to fill out an application after reading our Rules and FAQs. I promise it's not hard, but because we're a landcomm with challenges and points, and because writing is a personal activity, we do prefer to have a set up that allows our many authors to retain as much control over their work as possible. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either a maintainer or moderator of this comm. Otherwise, everything else should be fairly self-explanatory. Have a great day!

[Banners and LOVE]



Of course, we had more than a few super members who wrote and wrote and wrote. With the MOST points (1449), we had Poetry's shana0809!


For MOST challenges completed (as in, every single challenge this phase), we had Prose's turnerwolf!


Everyone here was wonderful and we can't have a comm without every single member. So for everyone who participated in Phase 2, here's a banner for you as well :) 




Be sure to check the spreadsheet, as always. Also, be sure to check the NEW Phase 3 spreadsheet - if your name is in red it is because you were inactive for the last two weeks of Phase 2, but indicated that you wished to stay. Removal will happen mid-June, so jump in and get writing!
