Our Template

All drabble posts should include the following template, posted OUTSIDE the lj-cut, at the top of your entry.

Don't worry if you mess up. Mistakes happen! The maintainers will attempt to comment and explain... smile

Please highlight, cut and paste the ENTIRE following template for your use:

NOTE: If any of the areas (lines) included in this template do not apply to your drabble, either put n/a (not applicable) or leave them blank. Thanks.

Word Count:
Pairing/Main Character:
Author Note:


Title: The name of your drabble.
If your drabble is deliberately untitled, please call it "Untitled, #_" -- using a numbering system to make it easier to refer to.

Word Count: Your exact word count.
If you need an easy way to count the number of words in your drabble, try one of the following:
**link counters**

Fandom: The full name of your fandom (or ship).
Pairing/Main Character: The full names of the main characters included in your drabble.
Using the full names of fandoms, characters and actors makes it easier for everyone. Not all members will be familiar with every fandom or every character.

For our template purposes, RP (real people) are viewed as 'characters.' Include RP names beside 'Pairing/Main Character:' -- and not beside 'Actor:' -- thanks!

Actors: The names of the actors who protray any tv or movie based characters.
Sharing the name (if known) of an actor who played a tv or movie based character makes it easier for members to picture an individual. We highly encourage you to include this. If you don't know the name, simply say so. If your fandom is book, comic or historically based, then put n/a or leave blank.

Author: Your author name.
This can be your LJ username, or any other name you like being referred to when writing fanfic (or both).

Feedback/Comments: Yes or no.
If you prefer not to receive comments to your drabble, please say NO after 'Feedback/Comments:' -- ADDITIONALLY, you might want to use the following code for that line:

NOTE: Do NOT disable comments -- in the event a maintainer wishes to post something (non-critical) regarding your work. Thanks.

!!!Warnings: Any necessary warnings.
Please read this for detailed information regarding warnings. Thanks!

Author Note: Any short note you wish to include. (Save longer notes for UNDER the cut, please. Thanks.)
A short author note might include the use of a beta (if any), a first-time post to the community, a first-time ever drabble, etc.

Once again, you may use your own template and/or additional areas (lines) under the cut at your own discretion.

Have any questions? Please post here.
