Welcome to yet another one of those low-pressure writing challenge communities! :D How did this one come into existence, you ask? It's a short story; I said the BPAL fragrance titles would make interesting fic challenges. My friend replied that I should create a community for this. And so I did.

What is BPAL, you ask? Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs. They make things that smell pretty.


The Rules


1. Do. NOT. Feed the Drama Llama. For any reason. If you're having a problem with someone, talk to a mod. If you're a troll, go find a bridge to play under.

2. If there is adult content, there is a warning and a LJ-cut, always. You will also lock the adult content so that your lovely mod's ass is not kicked by LJ and angry parents.

3. If there is a large amount of text, a large image, or more than two small images, there is a LJ-cut, always.

4. You may claim a pairing, a character, a group of characters, anything. Het, Yaoi, Yuri, Threesome, so on, all accepted too. But please make sure that someone else doesn't already have your claim, and please only take on two claims at a time.

5. If you don't think you can finish your claim, let a mod know so we can free it up for someone else. It's the polite thing to do, yes?

6. Tags love you. I love tags. So use them. You should have a tag for the Fandom, the Theme, and the Prompt Number.

7. ???

8. Profit.
