Q: Who can participate?
A: Anyone and everyone who has the desire to write Closer/Major Crimes fic, make graphics, edit a video for these awesome shows.

Q: Which ships are participating?
A: Any and all! You can submit prompts for any and every Closer ship and you can claim any prompts from the prompt list. We're open to het, slash and gen as long as it adheres to the livejournal terms of service.

Q: I don't have a livejournal though...
A: First of all, that's not a question... That is not a problem! Prompts can be submitted via tumblr (with the link above) as well and anonymous comments are enabled here on livejournal so if you don't have either you can still prompt and I'm happy to post links to fics/graphics/videos during the submission window if you don't have a tumblr either.

Q: What about crossovers?
A: Absolutely! Crossovers are amazeballs - they just have to contain at least one character from the Closer 'verse. Because otherwise this would just be anarchy.

Q: What if I'm not able to complete my claim?
A: If you're unable to complete your claim LJ message or Tumblr ask me so I can open your claimed prompt back up to other writers.

Q: Is this just for writing?
A: The prompt categories that I'm including are: fics, drabbles, graphics and videos. More details in the prompt submission page.

Q: My question wasn't answered, can I contact the mod?
A: Absolutely! I can be LJ messaged, you can comment to this post or Tumblr asked.
