[sticky post] Welcome to Magyk Carousel!  
Welcome to Magyk Carousel, the community where you can share your fanfiction (ones with magical and mythical creatures). The community is open to all magical fanfiction written as long as they have at least one kpop boy band member that plays lead and it is slash fiction (boy x boy).

The community was created by zawie. It opened in September 2009 and its doors were opened to all kpop boy bands in May 2010.

Holiday points used to be awarded to every member at the start of the year and for every successful participation in community events. The highest scorer would receive a $20 YesAsia Gift Certificate (the new generation of mods are merely students so we are still thinking of good things to replace it with. We don’t have money to push that through, sorry).

Now, on its 4th year, the new generation of mods (akihikaru and bianca747) has decided it is time to make an overhaul. Several ideas have come up, and we are excited to share them with you.


Holiday/Seasonal Challenges
Magyk Carousel celebrates festivals all around the world through little community events. It may come in forms of fanfiction contests or little posts where we’d ask members to tweak their layouts a bit in the spirit of the celebrated festival or season.

Magical Fiction Challenge
The community has organized a few sets of prompts that may or may not be related to one another (that’s for us to know, and for you to find out). Claim your OTx and own the set for six-months. Write drabbles, ficlets, one-shots or chaptered fics as long as you write them in magical fiction. Have fun!

Write 50 fics from these prompts and be honored as one of the most prolific authors of the community. Don’t forget to share your fics here!

Magyk Carousel Awards or MCA
Magyk Carousel, with its aim to promote writing of magical fanfiction, wants to properly recognize remarkable authors and their pieces that brought smiles and tears all over the world. In the MCA season, the community aims to promote camaraderie among magical fiction authors, despite the wide variety of fandoms we all belong to/in (since this’d happen in the Yuletide Season).

Now that you know what goes on in this community, we hope you know want to click join (if you haven’t already). Please proceed to the Rules page. Please visit the How To’s over at the sidebar as well, so you’d know what are necessary in every post—and how to tag.

Have fun!

Thank you for reviving this comm. Though I don't post, but appreciate the guidelines posts that you made. It'll be user to memebrs who post their stories.

Good Job mods!

You are welcome,

There are typos in my previous comment. It's suposed to be "It'll be useful to members who post their stories."

Again, super huge thank you for supporting the comm (even if it died for a while) ♥

You are welcome.^^ Thanks for reviving the comm.

TBH, I'm not as active in LJ as much as last time and nowadays I don't read as much fic already.
and there she flies;: mod akiakihikaru on November 27th, 2013 03:45 pm (UTC)
Yes, I think that is the reason why the comm just stopped updating~ The members seem to have stopped reading/writing. :)

The mods want to affiliate with new fandoms so we can welcome more fics! ♥
