Welcome to the October Challenge: Bingo and Inktober!

Its time to celebrate Fall/Spring, by turning bingo and Inktober prompts into artwork and words! Below the cuts, you’ll find the rules and also this month’s offerings.

Bingo is likely familiar to all, but ask if you have any questions. Inktober may be new to some - it was to me - but it seemed like a lot of fun, so we thought why not? The idea is to turn the Inktober prompts into visual art of any sort: Hand drawn, painted, digital art, icons, banners, collages, etc, etc, etc. Of course, if the Inktober prompts inspire words instead, that’s fine too- i’ll include the fill/reward rules for that below as well.

Thanks to Haldoor for her help with the bingo cards, and here’s to October- good luck!

Deadline:
Bingos and Inktober Fills must be completed by Friday, November 1st at 11:59pm US EST. You can post anywhere you prefer: here, AO3, journal, personal blog. We're on the honor-system, so no need to link us to them if you don't feel like it, but it'd be cool if you'd share them here on this post, or with a post of your own on the comm so we can all squee for you and share in the bingo joy. Whatever you choose to do in that regard, do comment, in the post we put up at the end of the month, to say you achieved a bingo and which card and bingo type you achieved so we can do up a reward for you!

To achieve 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 - 2 prompts in one work requires that work to be 200+ words long to qualify, and so on.

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

Interpret the prompts however you wish: There’s no wrong or right, only your interpretation.
