In honor of the Glorious 25th of May...

(banner by chomiji)

Below the cut tag is a table with all the prompts suggested by our community watchers and a wild-card category.

Each prompt can be claimed by up to four people (two artists and two authors) - and yes, you may claim a prompt that you suggested.

Prompts with ART specified are at the top of the chart, but all other prompts can be claimed by artists or authors (note: crossovers are listed at the bottom of the chart)

I've screened all comments so that prompt claiming is anonymous. As prompts are selected, I'll update the LiveJournal and Dreamwidth posts to indicate how many claims have been made.

Prompts will be available for claiming until midnight (New York time) on June 1, 2012

For more info, take a look at the earlier background information posts on Livejournal and mirrored on Dreamwidth If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below or email me at: discfest.mod [at] gmail [dot] com

Please use the following form to sign up:

(note: information about what sort of header to use for your submission will be sent to you with the confirmation of your prompt)
