Welcome to 30kisses on Dreamwidth! We're the Dreamwidth counterpart of the LiveJournal community 30kisses.
This is a low-pressure fanfiction community catering to people interested in a bit of a challenge or thirty. Or more! Chances are, the bulk of people joining are going to be hailing from anime and manga fandoms, but other fandoms (comics, TV, movies, books, original) are also welcomed, as are pairings of any orientation.
(Note: I said PAIRINGS, not threesomes, foursomes, or any other mass 'get-togethers')
Even better, you're not just limited to fanfiction-- aspiring artists can take on the challenge too, and submit fanart or artwork for the 30 themes.
Check out the original 30kisses list and all of the other themed set lists by clicking here.
The whole idea is to write 30 fics (of any length, but obviously the preference of most writers is to do 1 theme/piece, with the fics being drabbles or general oneshots) to fit the themes. But you can also write > 30 fics that use MULTIPLE themes.
That is, Fic A can use 29. the sound of waves, 27. overflow, and 30. kiss. The same concept applies to artwork-- any number of submissions is okay, so long as the themes being used is clear/stated.
The trick is that EACH FIC *MUST* incorporate a kiss somehow. Not necessarily a lip-lock kiss-- it could be a metaphorical/figurative kiss, a Hershey's kiss, or it could be an actual, physical kiss. It's up to you.
The fun in this is that while the themes are set, it's up to you to interpret them and write them for the pairing of your choice. So you're not 100% restricted.
