To celebrate the upcoming 5th anniversary of AFF, AFF is bringing you the... 5th ANNIVERSARY FEST!
What's a fest?
A fest is a challenge in which the AFF members (readers and writers) provide prompts and the participants (writers) choose a prompt from a list compiled by the admin. -Original definition by fanlore, slightly edited by me
The Anniversary Fest allows
- the readers to come out of their shell and participate in the community;
- the readers to get their plot ideas/wishes fulfilled;
- the writers to get inspired;
- everyone to enjoy more awesome stories!!!
The Anniversary Fest is ANONYMOUS:
- The AFF members (readers and writers) will anonymously provide prompts.
- The participants (writers) will anonymously choose a prompt and write their story.
- Each story will be posted anonymously under the penname "Anonymous Author" until the names of the participants are revealed.
May 11 - May 19: prompting
May 20 - June 23: claiming a prompt and writing
June 24: submitting and validating
July 1st: revealing the participants
Every member (readers and writers) may submit prompts from May 11 to May 19.
Each member may submit up to 10 prompts. You may come back later and submit other prompts by May 19th.
What's a prompt? A prompt can be:
- a single word
- a simple sentence
- a quote
- a picture/image (please provide a link)
- the title of a song (please also provide the artist's name) and/or the lyrics of a song (please also provide the title and the artist's name)
- a video or MV (please provide a Youtube link)
- a plot idea (no celebrities' names, only the setting/plot... the writer will choose his/her own characters)
How do you send your prompt(s)?
1. Make sure you're logged in (prompts from unregistered members will be ignored).
2. Use this FORM
Claiming a prompt
Starting from May 20, writers may claim a prompt. I will approve your claim as soon as possible (first-come, first-served). If the prompt is claimed by another writer, I'll decline your claim and you may choose another prompt.

| FORM TO CLAIM YOUR PROMPT
- To become a participant, you must be an AFF writer (you have at least one approved story).
- Your story can be a poem, a drabble, a one-shot, a multi-chaptered story, etc. as long as it follows the rules. You know the drill.
- If you finish your story early, you are more than welcome to claim another prompt! You may write as many as you wish but you may only claim one at a time.
- This is an anonymous fest and I'd like to keep it anonymous until July 1st. Please do not post your story elsewhere. Do not tell anyone other than your beta-reader the content of your story.
If you finish your story early, you may submit it to AFF anytime (as mentioned earlier, you're more than welcome to claim another prompt).
Deadline for submitting your story: June 24th
I'll validate the stories on June 24th/June 25th and move the stories to the account "Anonymous Author".
Revealing the participants
On July 1st, I'll move each story back to the account of the participant. On the homepage, there will be a master list revealing the names of the participants, their stories and the names of the members who posted these prompts.
For example: [insert author] wrote the story [insert title]. The prompt was [insert prompt] and was posted by [insert member].
: The idea of the fest was inspired by fests I've seen in the Dramione fandom.
