+ A collection of short vignettes/drabbles are acceptable as long as the minimum word count is achieved (750 words).SIGN UP SHEET:
- When you fill in the sign up sheet, post it here in this thread. You don't need to send me the sign up sheet through PM or E-Mail. Where most mods would have you e-mail your stories to them to post them, I'm trusting you do that. My only request is that if you end up posting the entry at your journal, could you please create a duplicate entry for the community? It's not a requirement, but it would be great or archival purposes.
When entries are made, look out for the tag #!dakotaverse ficahon: entries when posting begins and remember to use the fanfiction template located in the profile.SPREAD THE WORD:
- If you've got a Dreamwidth, LiveJournal, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr,...MySpace, whatever. Please let other Milestone Media fans that this activity is active and awaiting the rounds of its fandom. Seriously, this ain't gonna go nowheres if no one knows its here.
