Welcome!
Welcome to Small Fandoms Flashfiction, where we will offer up a writing challenge every two weeks in the hopes of generating more fanfic in our favorite small fandoms. Got a small fandom or two you'd like to support? Then join us in our quest to give small fandoms the love they deserve. *g*

ETA 2: As of 5/31/17, Small Fandoms Flashfiction community on LJ is closed. All future challenges will be posted at the Small Fandoms Flashfiction community on DW. (Additionally, no further challenge responses will be allowed here. I'll be turning off posting access immediately.)

For those of you who do not have a DW account, but would like to see the new challenges that are posted, I have created an RSS feed: sfflshondw. (You may post to DW using OpenID.) If you do have a DW account, please come on over and join us at the Small Fandoms Flashfiction community on DW!

ETA: On 4/17/17 I imported this LJ community into the mirror community on DW: smallfandomflsh. When new challenges are posted, the challenges will be posted to the LJ comm, after which a new import will be done that will carry the new challenge, as well as any fic written and posted to the LJ comm during that two week period, over to DW. This means that there might be some lag time between the challenge appearing on this community, and it appearing on the DW community, though it should not be more than a few minutes.

When posting a challenge response, please post your fic or fic announcement to either community, but not to both. If you post to LJ, your fic/announcement will be imported to DW with the next import. If you chose to post to DW, your fic/announcement will only appear on the DW comm.

Thank you!

For those of you who would like a different (and perhaps easier) way of browsing our complete list of challenges, rather than clicking on the '!challenges: complete list' tag to view them numerically, you can check them out here in alphabetical order.

lfodh: john&matt - blank by troyswann
Hello, everyone! I'm sorry to say that I'm going to be closing the Small Fandoms Flashfiction community on LJ. (The creation of # hashtags, which has screwed up the tagging system here, was the last straw for me.)

Challenge 201 is the last challenge that will be posted here. Beginning with the next challenge, all future challenges will be posted at the Small Fandoms Flashfiction community on DW.

(Additionally, no further challenge responses will be allowed here. I'll be turning off posting access immediately.)

For those of you who do not have a DW account, but would like to see the new challenges that are posted, I have created an RSS feed: sfflshondw. (You may post to DW using OpenID.)

{First time posting a challenge that needs to be imported to DW. *bites nails*}
hawkeye: clint - face palm by ellasaidlu
As of 4/17/17 I have imported this LJ community into the mirror community on DW: smallfandomflsh.

When new challenges are posted, the challenges will be posted to the LJ comm, after which a new import will be done that will carry the new challenge, as well as any fic written and posted to the LJ comm during that two week period, over to DW. This means that there will be some lag time between the challenge appearing on this community, and it appearing on the DW community, and right now that lag time is approximately 2 days. When the import queue isn't quite as long, the import will happen much quicker, but there will still be a lag time of several hours.

When posting a challenge response, please post your fic or fic announcement to either community, but not to both. If you post to LJ, your fic/announcement will be imported to DW with the next import. If you chose to post to DW, your fic/announcement will only appear on the DW comm.

If you have any questions you may comment here or e-mail me at spikedluv @ livejournal.com.

Thank you!
