2021 Round - Artist Claims
Claims for artists are open! The first round will go this week and then I'll post a new round on Thursday, opening it up for seconds. Everybody spread the word! We have 96 story summaries for you to choose from!
This year, art claims are working a little differently than in years past. We are using a google form to streamline things, which should make things easier both for you as participants and us mods. To claim a story, the form requires email, check in ID, and the identifying number of your first choice of story. Putting your top three choices is best in case your first or second has already been chosen. Please be sure you've read the FAQ before claiming.
Click here for the story summaries!
Stories are listed by fandom in alphabetical order and then by the story name, with a number identifying that story (for our records). Stories are first come, first serve. I'll update the post as stories are claimed. On Thursday, I'll temporarily close the form and post the stories that are left.
Official posting dates begin on August 8th. Once all stories are claimed and all artists/authors have been notified, I will put up a sign-up sheet so authors and artists can choose their posting dates.

I don’t think agents of shield, new girl, or superstore get enough hype for how satisfying their endings were

“ c’mon - since when did rex lapis back away from a educational adventure ... i want to go explore some ruins. maybe you could teach me something ~ ! ” doubt it. she simply wouldn’t listen if he began to even TRY to teach her something.
@fateshift ( zhongli hehe ) 🔥
on this newly-fashioned shield,
portent rather than pity
my grandfather said,
bronzed as broken bones, bodies
forget—every day a holy-water
index finger like
lions that fall upon
them—you can’t save anything
not because I could
but because I would have to look,
at the shield’s slow patina—green as day
the mouth tries to say: I am old
there are stars tonight, but I do not remember
the story is wrong-sided, hanging on
strapped arms—what’s the point?
in pictures, when loss is
left lying in a road—you never
fulcrum to pivot pain away from
the center of a field—savage
straight-horned cattle—you can’t save
the truth: I never wanted children—
find them, by the side of the road,
every day, here
spores spilled from the fruitbody
though my eyes are young, I know
I do not recognize
even one constellation
Matthew Minicucci (B.1981)
Graphic - František Kupka 1871-1957

@geosis : ‘ you are too afraid of the future to let go of a past that was never kind to you. ’ —— grave suggestions ( accepting )
❝ ——— you are so very dire, zhongli, ❞ it’s so easy to tease / that’s why it’s their DEFAULT, after all. a bemused smile curling his mouth and a chin propped on his hand and he’s peering up, lounging sprawled across the bed, sheets askew ( if not utterly akimbo, truly ) and tangled, slipping off of one leg, hardly covering the other.
ZHONGLI IS SO VERY DIRE ——— at all times, even !! oh, alright, not quite, though he looks so young / yet speaks as though he carries eons in his bones, moves as though he had once carried the earth upon his shoulders ( like that hero in the tales that he was told once upon a time long, long ago, of the colossus who had held the surface of the earth upon his shoulders and turned to stone, creating space for LIFE TO FLOURISH beneath the surface, saving those who lived above from a terrible end for all that they would never acknowledge nor thank the colossus ) and is now learning how to exist without such weight upon him. sometimes it’s as if his shoulders lower / as if he’s surprised, only for them to tense again ——— there is a curvature to his neck ( which kaeya has, naturally, studied rather extensively ) that speaks of centuries upon centuries of TIME UNDER PRESSURE.
ancient eyes / ancient lies.
ANCIENT EYES WHICH PEER AT HIM / imperious / passing judgment? or perhaps it’s none of the above, something else, something they have yet to put a name to. there is something fascinating and enthralling, there, something beyond a man’s looks, deeper than ( currently ) nail—scored skin, well hidden in the vastness which is the physical condition.
kaeya so often wants to know, wants to know every last inch and crack and surface of the foundation of a person, their quirks and wants and wishes and hopes and fears and dreams ( and it’s all SO VERY EASY to discover, isn’t it ) / it’s an instinct, a compulsion, well—ingrained into their very cellular structure. so it’s no surprise that he wants to dig his fingers into zhongli’s chest and pry it apart / burrow deep into the marrow, discover what lurks in those cavernous depths, excavate his secrets.
they drag their fingers through the valley of zhongli’s chest, grinning still. ❝ is this what your pillow talk shall consist of from here on out? so severe, ❞ nails dragging lightly, lightly. i’ll sink myself into your skin bury myself in your bones like ice in the earth. ❝ i may have to brush up on my EXISTENTIAL THEORY to keep up with you... ❞ a hand settles high on kaeya’s back, between their shoulder blades, and he shifts up on the bed, hand curling around zhongli’s shoulder, pulling gently. zhongli is IMMOVABLE, as always. how fun.
the edges of zhongli are obfuscated ——— there is a thread which he consists of that is tightly twined, difficult to follow, KAEYA WANTS TO KNOW HIM. every last inch of him. every last shadowy hidden part of him / wants to eat him alive, or perhaps be eaten by him. there is something here that is mirrored / ice settling into the ragged cracks of the earth and trying to open them wider, wider, wider. kaeya is a master liar, after all / and perhaps zhongli is not a LIAR but they know truth—tellers ( such a strange, stalwart breed ) and zhongli certainly IS NOT ONE.
they sit up fully, slide into his lap and settle quite comfortably upon their throne / the hand upon his back slides lower, settling in the dip carved there by the tilt of their hips. ( officially, the sheet is useless !! ) he brushes his fingers along zhongli’s jaw / presses his thumb against the swell of his lower lip / presses their mouth against the curve of zhongli’s cheekbone, tucking his grin against his skin.
❝ what is there to fear about the future, truly? things yet to come to pass? ❞ many things, indeed. a great deal of things, a plethora of things and occasions and events to come, paths diverging / converging / unbecoming. LIES BROUGHT TO LIGHT, waiting in the wings, steadily defrosting beneath the weight of the sun, never meant to gaze upon his deceit.
❝ no sense in dwelling on the PAST, either, ❞ a birth in the darkness, plied with lies, draped in the mantle of THE FINAL HOPE, running hand in hand with their beloved brother, a loss and a loss and a loss. kaeya wants to press his mouth to zhongli’s ——— drag out all of his memories / gorge himself upon them. HE KISSES HIM, INSTEAD : fleeting / teasing / a not—quite glimpse at their glacial heart. ❝ best to live in the present, don’t you agree? once such as THIS, especially, ❞ they curve comfortably when zhongli wraps his arms around them, settling against his body / THERE’S STILL THAT LOOK IN HIS EYES, KAEYA WANTS TO PLUCK IT OUT. not the eyes, of course not / those lovely dire vast too—ancient terrible eyes. no : he’ll kiss them, instead. later, perhaps.
❝ ——— seize the moment. ❞

How I rate fan fiction
Reads FF instead of doing work/sleeping
Right in the feels
Well...at least it’s funny
Clearly written by a minor who has no idea what the real world is actually like
Clearly didn’t pay attention in language arts class
(not including fics written by people whose first language isn’t English)
Dumpster fire full of shit

How to effectively and quickly reduce the damage caused by radiation to the human body!
The harm of radiation to the human body should not be ignored. Long-term exposure to radiation will cause discomfort to the human body, which can cause serious damage to human organs and systems, leading to the occurrence of various diseases, such as leukemia, aplastic anemia, various tumors, and fundus diseases , Reproductive system diseases, premature aging, etc.
It is imperative for everyone to start radiation protection! With every day of delay, more people are suffering from the damage caused to them by radiation!
The most effective way to reduce radiation damage to you is to place a shield between you and the radiation source! So you should know this anti-radiation fabric! Clothes made of this fabric can achieve a radiation shielding effect.

My Brother's Keeper - Open Starter
"You must be either very brave or very foolish for interrupting my solitude. State your business. You have two minutes before I separate your heart from your chest or your head from your shoulders."
Elijah hadn't been home in many years. He had separated himself from the world and was thusly behind on any current events regarding his family.
