ADMIN: A little contest for all of you, in celebration.  
Hello, all! It's been decided that we will have a challenge for the fandom at large...with a twist.

◦ Below is a list of thirty characters. You can only use these characters and you must include at least two of them. There is no upper limit as to how many you can use. You can mention characters not on the list, however (for example, you can have Mayuri/Unohana as a ship, but Mayuri can't be in the fic)
◦ There is also a prompt. You do not need to use the entire set of lyrics; if only one or two lines call out to you, use those. Feel free to interpret it as you wish.
◦ Any het/yuri/yaoi pairing is allowed except incest fic (and by incest I mean blood relatives, therefore Byakuya/Rukia is not considered incest for the purposes of this contest). Gen is also fine.
◦ Any rating is allowed (just note that if it's NC-17 you may get less votes because less people can read it).
◦ Fics must be 500 words minimum; there is no max word count.
◦ You may enter up to five times but you can't focus on the same two characters for each fic (for example, you can't write write a mix of five Ichigo/Rukia shippy fics and Ichigo & Rukia friendship fics, just one fic focusing on Ichigo and Rukia and four others focusing on different sets).

I'm going to try and come up with a prize for the winner, but I just lost my job and am looking for a new one, so for the moment that shall have to wait. Most likely it'll be paid account time and three packages of userpics for two months, or some other prize worth the same amount (if you win we can discuss it later). Anyone can enter, even me, since it'll be left up to popular vote. Contest starts today and ends March 15th 2011. Post your entry wherever you want on LJ (so no FF.net or AO3 links for the actual contest entry, though feel free to post there as well) and leave a link back to this post using the form below; I'll put a link at the top of the page just in case you lose this post. Make sure your fanfic post is public!

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the World I’m coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home, I’m coming home
Tell the World that I’m coming

Sounds interesting! I'd love to join but not too sure at the moment about my time management. If I'm able to come up with something, I'll be sure to link back. : D

Yay! I don't think I've read anything of yours (either that or it's been a long time), so if you do get to enter that'll be great.

Contains: Spoilers for the Lost Agent Arc.
Summary: Memories of a lost night have been biting at the edges of Chad's mind. He investigates the forgotten events with Karin Kurosaki.

This looked interesting, so I wrote something for the challenge. I need to work on Karin's voice for another piece, so I used her and Chad.
