The ShatterStorm Productions Dog Days of Summer 2005 FemSlash Advent Calendar
And now for the obligatory rules list…
First the administrative rules:
- FSAC DD05 (huh? What's that stupid acronym mean? Oh! Duh… Femslash Advent Calendar Dog Days of Summer 2005) has exclusive rights to all stories until July 1, 2005.
- Once your story has been posted on the FSAC DD05 site, you may feel free to link to the FSAC DD05 site or the ShatterStorm Productions site, but please do not link solely to the individual story. This is to ensure that people have the opportunity to check out the entirety of the FSAC DD05.
- Stories cannot be permanently posted or archived anywhere else (lists, sites, LJ, etc) until after July 1, 2005. (See Rule #2 above.)
- Oh! And please make sure that these are new fics, unpublished anywhere else. We're only gonna hold 'em hostage for a little while, and then you can have them back.
- Dates will be assigned to authors unless they specify a date they want. The calendar will be updated as regularly as humanly possible.
- Sign-ups begin on 4/16 and end on 4/30.
- All entrants must have their submissions in to aj & Jenn no later than midnight PDT on Friday of the week before they go live on the site. If you cannot get your submission in on time, and we don't hear from you, we will put in a ringer.
- Stories dated 5/23 - 5/29 are due no later than 5/20.
- Stories dated 5/30 - 6/05 are due no later than 5/27.

- Stories dated 6/13 - 6/19 are due no later than 6/10.
- Stories dated 6/20 - 6/22 are due no later than 6/17.
And now for the more creative rules:
- Femslash only… DUH!
- No bestiality (the dog can sleep at the foot of the bed, but that's IT).
- No underage over PG (this is just playing with fire).
- No real people. Period.
- And, for the love of little green apples, make sure they're NOT related if you're gonna get smutty! Incest is squicky.
- There is no rule number six.
- Any rating is acceptable. Please make sure to note and warn of any potential "squicks."
- Fanfiction, fan art, and music videos are acceptable.
- The individual requirements:
- For fanfiction: Minimum length of 500 words. There is no maximum length on these stories. Wherever your muses take you, we'll take it. Provided it is a finished piece.
- For fan art: Any original or photo-manipulated artwork will be accepted. Please ensure that your images are classy, not tasteless. No images over 1 MB in size.
- For music videos: All music videos must be playable with Windows Media Player or Quicktime. If you have a specific codec used, you must provide a link for people to obtain it. No videos over 20MB in size Please contact us if your video will be larger than this.
- Pick an inspiration, any inspiration, it's all good with us! TV, films, animated, comics, books, weird dreams after too much pizza…
