Welcome Post


Hello everyone! And welcome to camelot_drabble, the first drabble community for our beloved Merlin characters. We are very excited to be here, and we hope you are too, so feel free to watch/join and get ready for some awesome drabbles.

This community is for Merlin lovers. While we know that there are several fests going (and we can’t wait for them ourselves) this community was created to have fun, to challenge yourself, to let loose, and write and draw. This could be for old time writers to write and have fun in between writing for fest, and for beginners to ease into writing. A community to share your stories/arts. Yes art, while the community is called camelot_drabble we also want artists. This community is for You!

Each weekend there will be a new “prompt”, it could be a word, phrase, picture or drawing and with the given prompt, you must write a drabble or draw something in the allotted time. Awesome huh?

Have fun! Any questions or concerns please feel free to comment, PM, or email us at camelotdrabble@gmail.com.

Welcome to camelot_drabble Rules Page

If you're an author, your fanwork must meet the following criteria:

1.]All fan-work must involve Merlin characters in some way. As long as one of your main characters appear somewhere in the seasons, then you're good to go.

2.] There is NO limit on how many people can sign up each round.

3.] Sign ups are on a weekly basis, no 'skips' are available. That just wouldn't make sense (:P). Please, if you sign up for a round, turn in your drabble. If for some reason you can't once, that is all right. But if a member continues to do it then they will be banned from future rounds.

4.] All Character, Rating, Genre is allowed. RPF is also welcome.

5.] Each week, sign ups are optional. You can sign up every week or for none.

6.] All drabbles MUST follow the guidelines presented with the prompt at the beginning of each week. The guidelines WILL change from week to week (the prompt, maybe pairing) so please pay attention to that. If we see something amiss, we will simply ask you to revise your drabble.

7.] All drabbles must be a minimum of 100 words but no more than 1,000.*

8.]All drabble/drawble must remain exclusive to the camelot_drabble archive until the masterlist is posted which would be on Wednesdays. Once the masterlist is posted you can post it everywhere.

9.] Absolutely No flaming! These are people’s baby creations and should be treated with respect. If this occurs you may find yourself in the stocks overnight, and if it continues you could find yourself relocated to the caves under the castle, spending eternity listening to the riddles of the Great Dragon. Going from what my mother always says, if you have no constructive criticism to offer, or anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

10.] As this community has an open membership all must label their entries correctly. There may be younger members, and any and all drabbles containing explicit adult content must have a NC-17 rating, this is a must and drabbles will be removed if not rated accordingly.

  • Entries containing any kinks must also be warned for. Noncon, Dubcon, abuse, violence, incest, character death, etc. Nobody wants to offend, and if your work is not labelled or tagged correctly this may happen.

  • To avoid any mishaps, please tag for the following; Rating (Gen – NC-17), Genre (canon, AU) and Pairing. We don’t want any nasty surprises, while a Gaius/Uther NC-17 may be your thing, it may not be for others – make sure they know what they are opening beforehand!

This is a fanlore community and these rules must be followed for the enjoyment of all! To not follow, may end up with a night spent in the stocks and there is a basket of rotten tomatoes stored! =D

* We understand that sometimes we want to go on, but we have set a minimum and a limit of 1,000 words which is a huge drabble ;)

If you're an artist, your fanart must meet the following criteria:

1.] The fanart must be an original work that has not been previously posted anywhere else, either in full or as a work in progress. Every piece of art or media must be created specifically for the prompt.

2.] The fanart must contain Merlin characters.

3.] The fanart must be rated.

How it works!

Weekly Schedule

So here is how it will work.

  • Prompts/Challenges will be Issued on Friday at 10 AM! You have all day Friday to sign up to participate for that week. Sign ups will end on Saturday at 10 AM Eastern/Standard Time.

  • Drabble/art are due on Tuesday by 9 PM Eastern/Standard Time. This allows three days to complete your drabble or art.

    Note: If your drabble/art is done before Tuesday, you can start posting as soon as the sign up for the prompt closes.

  • A master post will be posted on Wednesday at 1 PM Eastern/Standard Time, and then on Friday, we will start all over again.

    Note: We would ask that you do not post your drabble's anywhere else until the master post of the drabble's has been posted.

Sound good? =D I hope so!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask the mods. We would love to help you out in anyway!
