Prompts Sent!

The prompts have been sent on both DW and LJ.

I apologize for some of you getting late prompts. I had computer problems that took my husband all day Friday and most of Saturday to fix. I don't know why my computer works perfectly when I'm goofing off, but decides to go kaput when I have something important to do. Again, I'm sorry for the late prompts.

If you haven't gotten your prompts, please check your spam filters, or your other email addresses. Please leave a comment here, or email me at ausar@netdoor.com if you need to have your prompts re-sent.

If you have any questions, or other problems, leave a comment here, or email me.

Spook Me Multi-Fandom Ficathon 2020

When the chill winds of autumn rattle the bare limbs of the trees, and dark clouds race across the face of the moon, the veil between worlds lifts to reveal:

The Spook Me Multi-Fandom Halloween Ficathon 2020!

This ficathon was created by ozsaur and dustandroses because we love spooky stories. trillingstar has been very helpful with finding great art prompts and is hosting this year's artwork. Halloween is the best time of year for reading stories that offer pulse pounding thrills, blood curdling dread and hair-raising horror.

All fandoms are welcome. Stories can be Gen, Het, Slash or Femslash. All ratings are accepted.

We have TWO new Creatures this year: KRAMPUS and EVIL TOYS!!!

Sadly, Men In Black was retired. Anyone who still wants to write for Men In Black can do so, but I won't be able to send artwork prompts for it.

September 17: Sign ups end.
September 19: Prompts sent out.
