Submission Guidelines

 


 

Hey everyone! Usually we are putting up the Submission Guidelines way later, but there are quite a few of you who are finishing early this Round!
So we decided to put said guidelines up early ;)
Thank you for your hard work! We really appreciate that!

 

And without further ado here are the things to be mindful of about Submitting:

> The minimum word count is >1000 words

> The final day of Submission is October 4th. Please hand in your work any day before said date. If you can’t make it, please ask us for an extension. (We may be able to offer you a few more days, but please, do inform us!)

> Do not upload your fic on your personal account until Colorful World Round 3 is over, as this would otherwise ruin the purpose of this fest. However, you are free to do so as soon as it is over on October 16th   : )

> Please use one of these formats for your fic: .doc, .docx, google docs, .txt, or .rtf

 

Please copy-paste this section into your submission Email and fill it out with the respective words/paragraphs:

Title: FILL IN THE TITLE OF YOUR FIC
Prompt-#: THE NUMBER OF YOUR PROMPT
Pairing: THE MAINPAIRING OF YOUR FIC (and sidepairing(s) )
Author: YOUR USERNAME WITH WHICH YOU SIGNED UP + THE PLATFORM (eg. ModK@lj) or "Anonymous"
Word count: FILL IN YOUR FIC’S WORD COUNT
Rating: FILL IN THE RATING/RATING RANGE OF YOUR FIC
Warnings: FILL IN ALL OF YOUR WARNINGS HERE
Summary: FILL IN A SHORT SUMMARY OF YOUR FIC

Attach the document of your fanfic to the Email and send it to colorful.vvorld@gmail.com !

Please use the Subject line [Final Submission] – your #number (prompt number)
And that’s about it!
There is still time left until the final Submission day so please don’t rush! This is only for everyone who wants to hand in early. (and maybe claim a second prompt ;) )
We will still send out Submission Reminder Emails later when time draws close !

Happy Writing and Cheers!!

!!Important Notice!!



 
Hello guys here are ModK and ModY from Colorful World.

We are writing to you today to inform you about an important change in the schedule for Round 3!
Due to personal circumstances of the Mods we have to push back the Submission Period as well as the Posting Period.

We apologise, but both Mods think that this is the best option we came up with, as it gives the writers more time to work on their stories (or to write another ;)) and it also works out for us Mods with our personal schedules J  

Haven’t claimed yet? Head over to our prompt archive and check if there is something waiting for you ;D

 

So here are the new dates that will be relevant for Round 3!

>> Claiming ends: 15th September

>> Submission Period: 27th September – 4th October 

>> Posting Period: 9th – 15th October

>> Reveal’s Day: 16th October

 

We apologise again for this change!
And we want to thank everyone who has been supporting us so well! You guys are great!
Additionally, we will also put up the Submission Guidelines early again for you early birds ;)

 

Have a good August!

ModK & Y

Check-in Time!




Hey guys! It’s already End of July! Which means we have reached our check in period that runs from 1st – 6th August.
We have sent out Emails to all participants and hope that we will hear back from everyone soon!
The informal check-in doesn’t require of you to send in your progress in a document, we only ask you for your current word count and if you intend on finishing!
So even if you have 0 words till now, don’t fret! ^^
Just tell us and let us now if you want to continue.

If any of you need to drop out, please message us as soon as possible.
It will help us a bunch in the future when we have to plan the postings and stuff.
Thank you!

You can do it!!  Our minimum word count is only 1000 words! We want everyone to be able to share their work may it be small short story or a lengthy work! Your work is appreciated!!
We believe in you ^o^

One more month until Submission Day!

Fighting!!

Claiming is [OPEN]

 

And now…
.

.

.

[CLAIMING IS OFFICIALLY OPEN!]

 

After revealing our Archive yesterday, the time has come where you can adopt a prompt and take it home ;) Are you excited? Because we are!
Claiming stays open until August 27th so don’t worry, there is a lot of time for you to decide on a prompt ^^
However, claiming happens on a first come first serve basis, so if you see a prompt that you really really want to turn into a fanfiction, you need to be fast!
Someone else might have their eyes on it too ;)

You can only claim one Prompt at a time. However, as soon as you finished your first work and sent that in, you are free to claim another! You will find a wonderful explanation how the Archive works on its’ first sheet if you have not checked it out yet.

Now, for all of you who want to participate in Round 3, here are some things to be mindful of:

  • The minimum word count is 1000 words.
     
  • There is an informal check-in between 1st – 6th August. In this period we simply ask of you to let us know via Email if you are still participating and intending to finish. Don’t worry, we will send out reminders to which you can simply reply!
     
  • The Submission period ranges from September 4th – 8th. Please send in your finished works until then.
     
  • If you need an extension of a few days, or if you need to drop out of the fest PLEASE MESSAGE US. Please just let us know. This is really vital for our future plans concerning Posting Period and so on. So please, let us know as soon as possible.

 

That’s it!
Now all that is left for you is to head over and take that prompt home you have been eyeing ;D
And if you haven’t checked out our awesome prompts yet, we have put the link to our Archive down below here as well!


Happy Claiming guys!!

Prompting [OPEN]


And here we are!
It’s May 26th, 7 pm GMT…

You all know what that means, right?

Prompting is officially >>OPEN<< !!

 

If your fingers are already itching, you can immediately follow the link to our Prompting Form and leave as many SHINee prompts as you want!
And for all of you who want to read some example prompts again, we have prepared some for you this time as well! (These are only examples and do not have to influence you in any way)
So here we go:

Bad Prompt #1:
Minho likes his college professor Jinki.

-> There is barely any information. What do you want to happen? The prompt should be a little more specific.

 

Bad Prompt #2:
Minho really likes his college professor Jinki, who teaches advanced economics every Friday from 8 to 10 AM at his college in Incheon that is located on a small hill. Minho is always really bored in that class but his eyes always fall on the professor and he swears that Jinki, who is so handsome!, keeps looking back at him with those brown eyes, so after class he stays to listen where the professor will be heading. After getting that information he changes buildings to reach the library where he waits between some bookshelves. When his professor finally comes, he keeps watching him until he takes a turn to a very quiet and secluded section of the library. Then he takes a deep breath and confronts him…

-> Far too much information. Too many details and comments that make it tedious to follow the prompt. Sometimes less is better and gives more freedom to the writer! J

 

Good Prompt #3:

Minho has a problem. He has fallen in love with his college professor Jinki and that’s already scandalous enough. However, he swears that he catches the professor glance back at him from time to time. So Minho makes up his mind, and confronts the young professor in a quiet corner of the library.

->Enough information but not too much. J

 

Okay, enough of that for now!
Let’s get to the important stuff!
Prompting will be open till June 25
th, 7 pm GMT. That leaves you with some time to get in as many prompts as you can think of! Any SHINee pairing, including fem!slash, hetero pairings and crossovers is welcome! Any kind of AU is welcome
J
Just stick to our guidelines stated in the Prompting Manual! Thank you.

Have fun and GO WILD!

Prompting Manual



And here we go!
Today is a very special Day ;)
It’s SHINee Day!! So happy 9th Anniversary! Let’s keep on supporting the guys in the future as well! They give us so much, and they will only try to give us more ~
So let’s work as hard as them!
Fighting! ^^


Regarding our Fest, we want to provide you with a Prompting Manual for all of you who are participating for the first time, and for those who just want to ensure that they are well prepared ;)

First things first!
Prompting will be done via a Google Form that ModK will provide for you tomorrow, May 26th at 7 pm GMT! With this form we will be able to collect all of your prompts. Please keep in mind that you need a VALID E-mail address if you want to leave a prompt. (Your E-mail address will never be published. We only inquire this as a method to contact you, if there are questions regarding your prompt.)

>> Prompting is open between May 26th 7pm and June 25th 7pm

>> DubCon/NonCon prompts, as well as those advertising extreme paedophilia,  will not be tolerated. We also do not accept any discrimination against a member or any discrimination regarding race, religion or sexual orientation. These prompts will be deleted without further notice.

>> You can leave as many prompts as you want! There is no restriction.

>> You do not need to join as a writer if you leave a prompt! You can decide by yourself if you only want to prompt, only want to write, or do both :)

>> Any SHINee pairing (member/member) is welcome! However, the pairing does not have to consist of two (or more) SHINee members, yet one SHINee member has to be present. So if you want to prompt (for example) Onew/Luna(f(x)) or Onew/Taeyang(BigBang), GO FOR IT! : D (And don’t forget about OT3, OT4 and OT5 ;) )

>> Fem!slash and Hetero pairings are obviously welcome!

>> AUs in any kind can be included as well! University!AU, HarryPotter!AU, Wolf!AU, ABO!AU, Fantasy Aus in any kind, Vampire!AU… let your imagination run wild!

>> You can choose to be an “anonymous prompter”, which means that even if you leave your username in the google form for us, we will not publish it on Reveal’s Day.

>> Please keep in mind to include all your warnings at the beginning of your prompt text summary if your prompt is tagged with ‘trigger warning’ 
Example:
>[Warning: self-harm, abusive relationship] Onew has been trying to hide his misery for many years….. <
 


Okay! That seems like a long list, but most of these things are self-explanatory anyway, right?
Below, you can find a picture of the Google form that you will find tomorrow in our Prompting Post!
If you have any questions regarding the form, or if you are uncertain about anything, please contact us anytime!

 

 

Thanks guys! See you tomorrow!!

Colorful World Round 3



We present: Colorful World Round 3!


Mod K and Y are here to announce that Colorful World will have a third Round coming right your way!
And don't worry, if this is your first-time hearing about a fic fest - we will answer all your questions and hope that we might be able to welcome you on board of our 3rd journey!

We are a fanfic fest centred around SHINee and their five members Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho and Taemin. 

For general information you can refer to our FAQ post [HERE]!

Furthermore, we have compiled some general rules applying to the fic fest. Any rule breaking will not be tolerated.

1) This is a SHINee fic fest. Any SHINee OTP is welcome as well as any OT3, OT4, or OT5. But please keep in mind that the main focus should be on the boys.

2) We won’t accept any prompts or fanfictions containing noncon/dubcon content or extreme paedophilia. Keep in mind that we also won’t accept any discrimination against a member or any discrimination regarding race, religion or sexual orientation.

3) Any prompt that has sensitive content must be labelled as such. This includes material like character death, age gap, gore or heavy kinks. We will repeat this again in our prompting post.

4) No plagiarism will be tolerated.

5) Please do not talk about your prompts/claims on social networking accounts. Any fic will be posted anonymously before the ‘reveals’-post will be uploaded. This will make the experience more unique! Talking about the fic fest is, however, very much appreciated!

6) The minimum word count for your work is 1000 words. If you need an extension or if you need to drop out, please inform us Mods as soon as you can.

7) You can stay anonymous as prompter and writer, however you need at least one social network account (twitter, dreamwidth, asianfanfics, ao3, tumblr, livejournal) and a valid E-mail address so the Mods can contact you.

8) Any additional information will be given with the corresponding post (prompting post, claiming post, submission guidelines)


Thank you!
We really hope that after the first two successful Rounds we will be able to deliver yet another wonderful experience for both Readers and Writers alike ^o^
We are already looking forward to that!
Mods K & Y can't wait for all of your ideas, your prompts, your works and our general communication! If any issue rises up, you can message us anytime.
We hope that we can greet new participants this time again too! 

 


The schedule will be uploaded in a separate post.
Till then!
Get your first ideas ready ;) 


Colorful World Round 3 will start at May 26th! Right after SHINee Day!
