The August Fic-A-Day Challenge is an annual Buffyverse Crossover event run on the Livejournal twistedshorts community, with most stories also posted to Twisting the Hellmouth. Participants must be Livejournal members.

The Rules:
1. Write one fic per day during August. Stories must be complete and stand alone, but series are more than welcome. The stories should be BtVS/Angel Crossovers of any rating with any fandom, minimum 300 words, maximum 3000 words.
2. Entries must be posted to the TwistedShorts Community to be counted.
3. Post more than one a day if you want, but only one fic per 24 hours counts toward the challenge. Backdating stories is strictly forbidden (and underhanded).
4. There's no 'miss a day and you're out'. If you can't post one day that doesn't mean you're out. Keep posting when you get a chance.
5. Regular posting rules apply: proper header, fic behind cut, adult rated fic comm-locked, disclaimer, etc.
6. Have fun Smiley

Special Note:
If you are cross-posting to TtH we strongly urge you to space out your posts more than a day (several days to a week would be preferable) and in situations where posting the stories as a collection of ficlets makes sense then please chose to do that rather than post them all as standalone stories.

Let’s not overrun the Latest Page and make this challenge fun for everyone!


Write 31 fics in 31 days and receive a nifty banner and, as always, bragging rights.

The challenge is moderated, and stories posted to TTH must follow the normal site rules. As may be apparent from the "special note," this challenge has a tendency to over-fill the "latest" page on the site, and some users may prefer to avoid posting other stories while it is running.
