Title: Sehun the Tiny EXO Member

Pairing: Luhan / Sehun, Kris / Tao

Summary: Sehun wakes up to find himself as small as Luhan's thumb.

Rating: PG-13

Author's Note: Written for beloniika's trick over at exochocolate's trick or treat post. I decided to post it on Halloween, because it's magical and fancy and adorable. Haha. It was inspired by this adorable, you should go check it out.


( Luhan laughs and mutters a soft 'who's small now?';. )

NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER

Hello everyone!
Welcome both old members and new (are there any besides me?) to the revamped Magyk Carousel. A place where you can find boyxboy fanfiction that involves mythical and magical creatures.

UPDATES ON REVAMPING
As you’ve probably noticed the layout and the profile page of the community have changed. We hope you all like the new look. There are info posts on rules and posting among other things so please take a moment to read through them. You might also want to have a look at the welcome post and meet the mods post where you can also write a short introduction yourself. A masterlist for all the fics posted in the community is in the works and will be posted sometime in the (near?) future. We’re also trying to work out a new holiday points system but that will most likely take more time.

WELCOME RIA~ 8D
Hello, everyone~! This is me, Aki, and I'd like to introduce my partner in creating fun activities and event line-ups for next year, bianca747 or Ria~ Let's all say hello, Ria~! So, you guys will be seeing Ria and I around, and we hope to hear more from you! Do you want to see events here in the community? Just let us know, okay? Let's all give Ria a warm welcome, okay? ^^

ACTIVITIES OF THE MONTH
November 1-28: Nomination round for the MCA
This is going to be the main activity for this month. There will be a separate post for the nominations where everything is explained in detail. Once the nomination round is over the voting will begin (assuming we get enough nominations to pull this through).

November 29 onwards: Voting round
This will technically be more of a December thing but because the voting starts in November it’s listed here.

MYTHICAL CREATURE OF THE MONTH
Since the winter is fast approaching and the days are getting shorter at least in this mods (Ria’s) part of the world. Therefore the mythical creature of the month is something related to sun aka the phoenix.

The mythological phoenix is a bird that has a long life-span (500-1 000 years). Once the phoenix nears the end of its cycle of life it builds itself a nest that it then ignites. Out of those ashes a new phoenix is born. The phoenix has remained quite popular through the years and it’s usually seen as a symbol of rebirth or renewal. If you wish to have a look at how the phoenix has been used in modern popular culture, please take a look here as the list is quite long.

If this inspires you to write a story with a phoenix that’s great, if not that’s fine too. Maybe another mythical creature of the month will.


BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday in advance
to everyone who’s celebrating
in November!

Title: Surfing for Answers
Pairing: Changmin/Yoochun, Yunho/Changmin, Jaejoong/Yoochun
Disclaimer: They belong to me with the same percentage of certainty that merpeople exist.
Summary: Changmin is floundering with nothing to keep him above water. Yoochun is running with nothing to show him where he belongs. Both are drowning under deep expectations.
Rating: R
Warning: Fair bit of angst, mentions of sex
A/N: I've been wanting to write a surfer!Min and a merman!Yoochun fic for a long time, so I combined them. This is not your typical fantastical merman/human story.

Mermen: Jaejoong and Yoochun
Humans: Changmin, Junsu and Yunho

Part 1
Part 2

Meet the Mods aka Hello, Let’s Get to Know Each Other and Be Friends, So Introduce Yourself Here Please~ Post

Hello, everyone~
It’d be nice if we all become friends ^^
So let’s have fun, yes?

Since Ria and I are relatively new here (I’m not exactly new, but I never got the chance to make friends before I vanished from LJ-verse. ;---;), we’d like to introduce ourselves and make friends!

We would also love to get to know all of you~

So please take this opportunity to get to know other people as well~Collapse )

HI, I am Aki.
Aki's responses~Collapse )



HI, I am Ria.
Ria's responses~Collapse )


There you go~ I hope we were able to introduce ourselves nicely~
Remember to comment your responses, okay? We can’t wait for your responses~ ♥

Have fun, okay? ^^

HOW TO FORMAT YOUR POSTS
Your post should look something like this:



Title: The Misadventures of Sehun the Tiny EXO Member
Pairing: Sehun/Luhan
Disclaimer: I do not own EXO nor will I ever will.
Summary: Sehun wakes up to find himself as huge as Luhan's thumb.
Rating: PG
Warning: If the fic deals with character death, or rape, or incest or fetishes like BDSM, you put it all here.
Author's Note: This is inspired by Sheldon the Tiny Dragon.

Sehun sees a thimble and sits on it. He finds is extremely comfortable.



See other stuff under the cut: like free codes.Collapse )



GUIDELINES IN GENRE TAGGING:


See how to differentiate your genres here~Collapse )

The other genres are easy to understand, so I won't be putting them up here anymore.
But if you want it cleared up, you can just comment here and we will happily add them here, with examples too.

If you need other tags, just comment on this post and the mods will make the tag. ♥

As any other community, we also have rules. These rules are to be strictly implemented, because the moderators have a lot of time in their hands.

The rules may be modified or edited whenever necessary. Please check on this post whenever the moderators notify the members of changes through the monthly newsletter.

[You are allowed three offenses, and on the fourth one, you will be removed from the community.]You are allowed three offenses, and on the fourth one, you will be removed from the community.

RULES:

  1. Since this is not a community limited to only one band, the most important rule would be, BE NICE TO ALL FANDOMS. We understand that there are bands that don't suit your tastes, but then, we can keep those little negative comments to ourselves, could we?

  2. Be nice to everyone: meaning, no flaming. This includes: no demanding of comments, you can ask politely, but no demanding. No bad words for other authors, artists or whatsoever. We believe that there are other comms appropriate for your bashing needs.

  3. Please keep posts related to the community. No posting of non-magical works, fanart, fanmixes, and other fanworks. This is a magical fanfiction community. If it is not magical or fanfiction, it does not belong here, sorry!

  4. There is a limit to posting. Only one post a day to prevent f-list spamming. Compile your updates into one large fic dump, if you must. If caught posting more than once a day, the entries will be deleted, and the user will receive a warning from one of the mods. Please be reminded that the time stamp of an entry is based on the time this window is opened. The mods will look over all time stamps, so please follow this rule.

  5. No using of specialized and colored fonts, and no capital letters in the middle of a sentence. This may be okay for your eyes, but it may be painful to others' eyes.

  6. LJ-cuts are to be used.

  7. Follow the posting format. Look over the sample entry which can be found here. You may occasionally check your sidebar as well, we linked it there. The user will receive a warning if the sample isn’t followed. It’s not that complicated, do not worry. This is to keep this community organized.

  8. All fanfiction rated higher than PG must contain a WARNING, especially those that deal with fetishes, crime and other heavy material.

  9. Every member is responsible for his/her own choices of reading material. Therefore, the mods nor the author of the story are responsible for any offense taken by the reader. However, if the author fails to post a warning, the responsibility to take the fault will belong to them, and not the reader.

  10. Disclaimers are to be used. This is necessary.

  11. Also, all fics to be posted in this community must be accessible to anyone within the next 96 hours after posting. No one should require friending of fic journals.

  12. Crossovers are allowed. Books, Anime, Manga, TV Series or anything else you want to crossover is okay, as long as there is at least one kpop boy band member who plays lead and it is slash fiction (boy x boy).

  13. Have fun~



If you have questions, do not hesitate to comment here or PM akihikaru or bianca747.

Hello, everyone!

I apologize for disappearing all of a sudden. All of the mods have vanished from the face of LJ for a while, with our creator finally purging her journal.

I emailed the creator of the mod and I have decided to revive this community! :)

We will be having very big changes soon, I hope you all enjoy it!

Also, there have been a lot of new groups that have debuted since how many years ago, so let's welcome them warmly! I will be affiliating with them soon.

Till then, let us all have a blast!




That would be all,

akihikaru
