Round opens: March 3rd, 2013
Round closes: March 2nd, 2014
Amnesty period begins: March 2nd, 2014
Amnesty period ends: TBA
Round two begins: TBA and it might not happen at all; it depends on how this first round goesThe Goal
Once you have signed up
and received your Bingo card, your goal is to achieve a Bingo horizontally, vertically, or diagonally by creating fanworks based on the prompts on your card. You can also aim for a Blackout, which would be achieved by creating fanworks based on EVERY prompt on your card.
In order to "win" at XMFC Bingo, you must achieve at least one Bingo by March 2nd, 2014. Everyone who posts a Bingo during the round will receive a name tag on the community. If you do not achieve a Bingo during the round, or if you have created fanworks for one or more prompts but have not managed to achieve a Bingo, you can still post to the community, but only during the amnesty period. All posts to the community during the round must
be either Bingos or Blackouts.Rules
All types of fanworks are allowed. If you can think of it and want to do it, go for it!
Every size/length of fanwork is welcome.
All fanworks must be centered around X-Men: First Class characters. Crossovers are welcome, but XMFC characters must play a major part of your fanwork in order for it to count.
Only newly-posted fanworks may be used for XMFC Bingo; anything you posted before signing up may not be used.
All fanworks must be finished prior to being linked to on the community.
Fanworks must not be posted here; they should be posted elsewhere, and your post here will include the links.
Required warnings for this community are: Major Character Death
, and Graphic Depictions of Violence
. You may also Choose Not to Warn
. This warning must be either included on the story in your post here to the community, or included on the story wherever you post it (so if you're posting on AO3 and have followed their warnings system, you're good).
This one's not a rule, but if you're posting your fanworks to AO3, please post them to the XMFC Bingo collection
When posting Bingos/Blackouts to the community, please use the following format:
Subject Line: [Bingo/Blackout]: # of Works: Type(s) of works
It's fine to vary the format a little, but please make sure to include a bare minimum of your works' titles, ratings, warnings, prompts, and of course a link.
