It developed spontaneously after lavvyan posted the story Cycle in March 2009. Almost immediately (and in accordance with lavvyan's blanket permission) other authors added sequels and prequels, expanding on the AU only vaguely outlined in the original story. A LJ community (with a name inspired by Pon Farr) was created four days later.
In the beginning, stories were added so quickly that it became hard to keep track of a consistent timeline. Later multiple tracks were created, each of them consisting of several stories by different authors. Two master lists attempted to keep track of the stories.
The original story established a world in which genetically compatible people are overcome by lust during their "cycles" when they touch. This was expanded upon and common elements soon included "universal receptors", people who are compatible with anyone and are regularly exploited and insulted. Specific terms for worldbuilding details were invented (e.g. "bike", "socket", and "uni".) Several stories include commentary about prostitution and sex work.
