To 6_by_6_by_6

A multi-fandom fanfiction community, like so many others, but also with a difference.

The difference is that, whilst you only have to write six stories, you have to include SIX prompts in each story. Also the minimum word count is 600 words per story.

Basically the prompt table consists of six categories: Colours. Vehicles. Vegetables. Terrain. Weather. Weapons. And each category has six prompts, i.e. there are six colours, six weapons, etc. What you have to do, for each story, is to use one prompt from each category, making a total of six prompts to be included in each story.

For more details see the Overview.

As this community will contain fanfiction of an adult, both homoerotic and heterosexual, nature, you should be over the age of consent within your own country to join.

The community is slash, het and gen friendly. This means it will contain fanfiction of an adult, both homoerotic and heterosexual nature. Thus, if the idea of a romantic and/or sexual relationship between two people of the same gender or two people of opposite genders offends or upsets you, and/or you are under the age of consent within your country, then this community is not for you.

Flaming will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Let's all play nicely together and remember this credo: 'mutual respect'.

I aim to approve claims and set up tags within 24 hours of the claim being made. However, this sometimes may not be possible, so please bear with me. Also, I live in the UK, so if you are requesting a claim/asking a question there may be several hours delay before I am able to respond to you. Thank you for your patience and understanding.



Azure Pony & Trap Cucumber Moorland Storm Hand Gun
Vermilion Paddle Steamer Parsnip Marsh Fog Crossbow
Emerald Bicycle Melon Mountains Drought Hand Grenade
Ebony Combine Harvester Pineapple Sea Ice Sword
Beige Airship Banana Forest Blizzard Flamethrower
Ivory Sherman Tank Turnip Desert Wind Axe

What you have to do is to include, in each story:

- One colour
- One vehicle
- One vegetable
- One terrain
- One weather
- One weapon

And each word can only be used ONCE.

For example:

Story One might contain the following prompts: Azure. Bicycle. Melon. Forest. Fog. Hand Gun.
Story Two might contain the following prompts: Ivory. Airship. Banana. Sea. Wind. Sword.

In the FAQs I have included a colour coded copy of the table showing how I have 'used' the prompts and to which story they pertain.

STEP ONE: Choose your fandom and claim.

  • A slash '/' pairing (male/male or female/female)
  • A het '/' pairing (male/female)
  • A gen '&' pairing (no romantic and/or sexual relationships)
  • A single character

    Your stories can come from any TV show/series, films, books, etc. RPS/RPF is also permitted.

    To make the claim I need to know:

    1. Your LJ Username:
    2. Fandom
    3. Pairing/Character
    3. Link to the table on your LJ:

    STEP TWO: Once your claim has been accepted, and not before, you may start to post your stories.

    STEP THREE: Posting Information.

    Stories should be posted as follows.

    Subject Line: Fandom. Pairing/Character. Prompt.

    Story Header:

    PAIRING/CHARACTER: Use full names, please, not ‘squashed up’ names. For example, if you’re writing Gibbs/Abby, please use Gibbs/Abby (or indeed their complete names), not Gabby.
    GENRE: Slash, het or gen.
    PROMPTS: List the six words you have used for the story
    RATING: Ideally please use G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17 rating system. However, any system that you use is also fine.
    SUMMARY: This can be as brief or detailed as you like, but please put one.
    WARNINGS: I'm not going to make a huge list here, as one person's idea of warning will be another ones' 'like'. However, the things for which I suggest a warning should be given are: death of a major character, heavy BDSM, any other extreme fetish, unhappy ending, partner betrayal, partner rape. Please note that slash and het are not warnings. There is a section in the header where the genre is stated.
    NOTES: Anything else you'd like to mention.
    DISCLAIMER: Something like: 'I don't own these characters, nor am I making any money from them. I merely borrow them from time to time'.

    ALL stories, whatever the length, if posted directly to this Community must be placed behind the LJ Cut. If you don't know how to do this, please go to: LJ Cut
