If you're not sure about any of this, please ask! This is the place for initial questions, but any Bingo post is fine, or you can email me at tkeylasunset@gmail.com.

What about when I finish my first card?

If you complete ANY of the above bingos you have the opportunity to attempt a different bingo with another card.

- Completed Bingos can be completed/posted all throughout the month until July 1.
- You can post your completed Bingos anywhere: here at the comm, in your own journals, AO3, personal websites - it's entirely up to you. If you post them direct to the community, please use the 'challenge: bingo' tag and a creation tag for your post.
- How you fill a prompt is up to you. There is no right or wrong way to interpret a prompt.
- You can change 1 prompt of your Bingo Card if you are uninspired. This can be any square, and the subject you choose is up to you. Change for any prompt on another card, or choose your own.
- Picture prompts on regular Bingo can be interpreted any way you choose.
-Prompts on the Graphics Only cards can be interpreted in whatever way the muses inspire you.

What constitutes a fill?

Prompt Fills can be completed in several ways:

Words:
At least 100 words Per Prompt.
You can include several prompts in your fic, but the combination must still reach the word count minimum, e.g. Incorporate 3 prompts into your fic and it must be 300+ words long. 9 prompts and it must be 900+ words long.
Fics can be connected i.e. several 100 word drabbles of the same theme, or all stand alones.
All types of writing are accepted, from fanfic (any fandom), meta, original, RPF.

Graphics - per prompt:
2 Icons
1 Wallpaper
1 Friends Only/LiveJournal Banner
OR
1 GIF

You can mix and match and fill your bingo with fic and graphics if you want. Even the graphics only cards can be used as written prompts if that’s your choice.

You'll find the cards at this post. Anyone can choose any card, and more than one person can use the same card, although it would be great to see them all in play, so check what others have chosen and aim for something different if you can! If you can't, no big deal.

Comment there to say which Bingo card you're playing, then head off and create - start straight away if you like.

If you complete your first card and wish to play with a second, go for it! Just head back to the card post and comment with the name and number of your new card.
