No need to declare a card or cards, but feel free to comment here with your pick(s)!

Here are the ways you can achieve a bingo and claim a reward. (more on rules and rewards below).

2x2 Bingo
1 Square – Fill 1 prompt on a chosen card
Doubles –  Complete 2 prompts on that card
Blackout – Fill all 4 prompts on that card

3x3 Bingo
1 Square – Fill 1 prompt on your card
Line – Complete 3 prompts in any one line: across, down, diagonal
Corners – Fill 4 prompts in the corners of said card
Blackout – Complete all 9 prompts of said card

4x4 Bingo
1 Square – Complete 1 prompt on your card
Line – Fill 4 prompts in any one line of your card
Double Bingo - Complete four prompts in any two separte lines: across, down, diagonal
Blackout – Fill all 12 prompts of the card

Floating Free Spaces and a 'pick a prompt' opportunity for one particular category:
The free spaces on the 3x3 cards need to be filled where they sit, but on the 4x4 cards the free space can float. If you find yourself one darned  fill short of a line bingo or double bingo but are stuck on a prompt doesn't speak to you then feel free to slide that free space on over there and make up your own prompt. One such move is allowed per 4x4 card - and if you use it, consider the prompt you are replacing to have floated on over to the free spot.

On the Smut/Kink 2x2 cards, you'll see that one of the squares asks you to select a prompt from another smut/kink card. Choose any one of the prompts from the 3x3 or 4x4 kink/smut card(s) to fill that spot.

What constitutes a fill?
Words:  At least 100 words per prompt, of any sort: Fic, non-fic (meta, journal entry, RPF). You can use prompts alone or combine them in a single work - 3 prompts in one work requires that work to be 300+ words long to qualify, etc.

Graphics:
Make 2 icons per prompt
Make 1 Wallpaper or other-type 'large' banner or image
Make 1 Gifset

Also, you're welcome to ask for clarification if a prompt confuses you but know up front that however it speaks to you is fine - interpret and fill it as works for you.

Deadline:
Bingos must be completed by Sunday, July 2nd at 11:59pm US EDT. You can post anywhere you prefer: here, AO3, journal, personal blog. We're on the honor-system, no need to link us to them if you don't feel like it -- but it'd be most appreciated if you'd share them here on this post, or with a post of your own on 1-million-words so we can all squee for you and share in the bingo joy. Whatever you choose to do in that regard, do comment here by 7/2 to say you achieved a bingo and which card and bingo type you achieved so we can do up a reward for you!

Speaking of which....rewards!  They are:

2x2 cards
1 Square  - a June 2017 Bingo icon
2 squares - a personalized participation banner
2x2 bingo blackout - a personalized bingo mini-blackout banner

3x3 cards

Blackout - a personalized bingo blackout banner, and one of these two options:

I'm going for the romance 4x4. Will be attempting the whole thing to be my OTP in a particular fandom: Logan/Veronica (LoVe) in Veronica Mars.

What is a *floating* free space?

Oh and you've got the last 'Cute and Cuddly' card posted twice. :)

Got it! The 'cute and cuddly' section is fixed now - the second 3x3 card is now where that duplicate 4x4 was.

Here's the info from the post on the floating free space. It's basically just an option to let you move the free space on that larger card, if it helps with a bingo or double bingo that doesn't already involve using the free space.

The free spaces on the 3x3 cards need to be filled where they sit, but on the 4x4 cards the free space can float. If you find yourself one darned fill short of a line bingo or double bingo but are stuck on a prompt doesn't speak to you then feel free to slide that free space on over there and make up your own prompt. One such move is allowed per 4x4 card - and if you use it, consider the prompt you are replacing to have floated on over to the free spot.

YEEEEEEEES! BINGO!

That 'Vampire AU' spot is calling me... I think I'm going for the first Dark & Dangerous 3x3 card.

Sweet! I'm thinking I might go with a dark and dangerous card, myself- and maybe one more card, if I get ambitious.

Good luck with it!

really really going to try this time. I've been trying to do more drabbles and shorts.

question - can "first recital/school play" be the OTP's child? because if that's allowable I have an idea for it...

BTW, does someone want to explain what the heck "meet cute" means??

thanks for the cards!

Good luck! I know what you mean- I always try/hope to keep the bingo fics short and not let them morph into 10k+ chapter stories. I find I enjoy the bingos more when I succeed at that, lol.

Absolutely - the recital/play can be anyone's event, i.e. doesn't have to be a member of the actual OTP itself.

And a 'meet cute' is a Hollywood term - Here's the description and an example from the TV Tropes web site: "A meet cute is a fictional scene, typically in film or television, in which a future romantic couple meets for the first time in a way that is considered adorable, entertaining, or amusing. The term has existed since at least the early 1940s. Non-romantic example in Star Trek. Kirk and Spock's first meeting involves Spock getting Kirk court-martialed for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru test. The writers have actually stated that the heart of the film is them falling in love with each other - but in a platonic sense."

So, really, it can be any sort of canon or AU fic where your main characters meet in some way that's cute, funny, or a little over the top. :)
