cold

current mood: cold

Keep in mind, this is still a work-in-progress. ;)

1. WTF is this?
I'm glad you asked! 20_fruits is inspired by The HP Character Random Facts/Things Meme Compilation and Fic [and Art] Fest put together by iulia_linnea. Basically, this community is for the posting of twenty random "facts" created by the author about a particular Fruits Basket character/relationship.

2. How do you define "facts"?
They can be based on canon, fanon, or pure speculation: In essence, what the writer thinks or would like to think is true about that character/relationship. Missing scenes, personality quirks, childhood anecdotes, a character's thoughts on other characters, etc.

3. Seriously, wtf?
If you're still confused, I'd suggest browsing through some of the entries in 20_souls (Bleach-based) or 20_truths (Naruto-based), or in the previously linked HP Character Random Facts/Things... thing.


About the Claims

4. Righto, what can I request?
A single character (Honda Tohru, Sohma Ayame, Manabe Kakeru), a group of characters (Rin and Hiro, the Mabudachi Trio, the Prince Yuki Fanclub), or a romantic relationship (Kyou/Tohru, Shigure/Akito, or the billions of other pairings you can probably think of).

5. Do you allow slash/threesomes/polygamy/etc.?
Yep! Anything goes. But if you think any of the content might squick people, please to be noting it at the beginning of your post.

6. How many claims can I make?
I won't put a limit on it, but I'll ask that you not claim more than four or five at a time unless you're sure you can finish them fairly quickly.

7. How many people can claim the same character/relationship?
Right now, let's just keep it at four. This is subject to change.

8. How long do I have to complete my claim?
I'm not going to set a strict time limit, but if I haven't heard from you in, say, three months (again, subject to change), I'll take your name off the list. Of course, I'll probably be more lenient on this if the character/pairing you've claimed isn't in high demand.

9. What if I want to claim a one-sided romantic pairing?
One-sided romances (meaning, for instance, if Momiji is in love with Tohru but Tohru isn't in love with Momiji) are still placed under "pairing."

10. Can I include any romance at all in my group claim?
That depends. Say you've claimed the group of Yuki, Kyou, and Tohru. You can have romantic feelings between Kyou and Tohru, but not between all three. Just remember that the focus should be on the group as a whole.


About the Community

11. I have more questions/suggestions for the community/words of praise/scathing criticisms. Who do I talk to?
You can leave a comment in this post, or you can email me at lady_of_ithilien87OMGDUNSPAM @ yahoo.com.

12. Say, I have a Furuba fic community/"20 facts" community. Wanna affiliate?
Probably yes! Leave a comment in this post.

13. Can you tell me really simple stuff, like how to join a community or do an lj-cut?
In Soviet Russia, LJ cut you!

I love this idea...and I have a question. If you claim a character or two, can you also claim these characters as a pairing/platonic relationship? Like claiming Hatori and the Mabudachi Trio...or Kyo, Tohru and Kyo/Tohru? I didn't see any rule about that there [and please don't make the rule if you hadn't thought of it before! LOL]

When we post, is it okay to do the fake LJ-cut to writing journal thing, or should we just post the full text here even if we're also archiving it elsewhere?

Fake LJ-cuts are perfectly acceptable. :D
