We are GO for February Bingo launch!!! Repeat: We are a GO for BINGO!!!

This post (hopefully) contains all the pertinent information you need to have a fun and successful Bingo event!! If anything is unclear (which it probably is), let me know and I'll try to elucidate further.

Very very special thanks to craterdweller for taking on the task of making the cards. You rock the most!!!! Thanks also to craterdweller, erinm_4600, and guineamania for volunteering to help provide rewards! (See below for rewards.)

*A quick note of clarification - we are trying to limit the cards to one or a maximum of two per request to start. When you finish your first card, please come back and request another. I wasn't clear on this point and I apologize.*

As per the suggestions of the fabulous members of this fabulous community, there are seven categories of cards:

ROMANCE
AU
GRAPHICS
CELEBRATIONS
SMUT/KINK
LOCATIONS
TROPES

By popular vote, we are concentrating on cards that are 2x2 and 3x3 (which include a free space.) (Cards that are 4x4 can be special requested and may take an extra day or so.).

In order to receive your card, post a comment here requesting the category and the number of squares – 2x2, 3x3 (or 4x4 if desired).  craterdweller will make your card and we’ll get it to you.

If you're not sure about any of this, please ask! Or you can email me at tkeylasunset@yahoo.com .

If you complete ANY of the above Bingos you are welcome to come back and request second card - same category or different. It's up to you. (You may also request a second card if the first simply doesn't trip your trigger, so to speak.)

- To be eligible for rewards, completed Bingos need to be posted by midnight your time, March 1. You are welcome to post your work any time!
- You can post your completed Bingos anywhere: here at the comm, in your own journals, AO3 (you can tag your works on AO3 with Community: 1 Million Words), personal websites - it's entirely up to you. If you post them directly to this community, please use the 'challenge: bingo' tag and a creation tag for your post.
- Be sure to comment with a link to your Bingo fill at this Bingo 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 on your Bingo Card if you are uninspired. If you need a substitute squire, post a comment here and I’ll provide you with a replacement. Please be sure and tell me the theme of your card.
- Graphic prompts for any graphic or non-graphic Bingo card can be interpreted any way you choose.



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
