Welcome to our second annual Camelot Bingo! Instead of having weekly prompts, with four days to write for each one, we are hosting a month-long Bingo Challenge! This is how it will work:
1.] Sign-up! A mod will assign you a randomly generated, 5x5 card. We are doing a 5x5 card this year because there are five Fridays in the month of July.
2.] Over the course of the month, create and post as many drabbles/drawbles as you'd like, inspired by the prompts on your card.
3.] Everyone completing a bingo will win the opportunity to choose the prompt for a week of their choice.
4.] We're offering an incentive to reading/commenting on other fanworks this year. For every ten comments you leave on works that are not your own, you earn a free space on your bingo card. Leave enough comments, and it's entirely possibly you could complete a bingo without ever writing a fic or creating a drawble!
Well, that's not completely it. Like any challenge, there are certain rules.
1.] Request a bingo card on this post. You can sign up all the way until August 1.
2.] Review the card to figure out which bingo line you'd like to fill. All pairings, ratings, and genres are allowed. Everything will be accepted, as long as it contains the prompt in some form.
3.] To win, you must make a bingo of some kind. A bingo consists of the following: horizontal line, vertical line, diagonal line, or (if you're feeling daring) a blackout of every square on the card. The minimum number of drabbles/drawbles to complete a bingo is five. You may only use one prompt per drabble/drawble. Free spaces earned from leaving comments count toward the minimum.
4.] Post your fills to the community with the normal posting format. The "Prompt" will be whatever the prompt is in the square you're filling.
5.] If you finish a bingo, make a single post to the community with the links to your completed works, using the following template:
Bingo Completed: (horizontal, vertical, diagonal, blackout)
6.] Posts for both fills and bingos can be made at ANY TIME throughout the month. Bingo ends on Tuesday, August 4th.
7.] The same prompt tag will be used throughout the month. It is pt 419:bingo-round 2.
8.] There will also be a single AO3 collection for all works created in this first round of Camelot Drabble Bingo.
