Inspired by theme communities such as 30_kisses and fanfic100 and the concept of fictional character secrets by muse_secrets and writing secrets in text by textsecret, 30_musesecrets is a low-pressured community for writers (who can't create postcards because their graphic skills is lacking *coughs*) and artists alike (if you preferred drawing secrets).
You may write a secret for one character or two, a group, a pairing, let your creative skills fly! For art, you may draw your own postcard.
Just a warning beforehand: This community contain mature content (isn't that what secrets are for?) Read at your own discretion. Yaoi/slash/boy love, het, and yuri are all encouraged all around and welcomed, thus flaming is not permitted.
Rules 1) No claiming for characters. Meaning two people or even ten may write for one same character. This eliminates competition and the crazy pressure to finish on time before a certain deadline.
2) No time limit. Nope. It's free for all. No deadline, remember?
3) You may write for one theme or write combinations. However, please write more than one sentence. One sentence is not long enough, I appreciate it if you write at least 2 or 3 for depth. Word length can go up to 100 words (drabbles) to 500 (ficlets) or even more than 1,000 (shorts), but remember to put it behind an lj-cut.
If you're writing/drawing for original works and worry about the issue of showing it off in public, then have it friends-locked.
4) Please make everything fictional. Don't aim your secrets at somebody in real life. Fandom and original works only. Hey, even fanon is accepted.
5) For optimal results, refrain from saying names. :)
6) Lastly, you may write secrets for RP characters too, but no RPing in the community please.
Format Please follow the format strictly. The fandom, the characters you're writing for, I need specific information to have it listed in the memories and tags.
