First of all ... WELCOME to all the new members! We are *thrilled* to see the comm growing so fast, in its first few days of existence!
Remember that you can contribute in any number of ways: by posting your own work (fic, art, vids, etc.), or by reccing someone else's; by commenting on the posts you enjoy; or by spreading the word! We've got a couple of banners you can use, and we hope to have some icons available in the next few days.A request: if you rec someone else's work, please leave a note for them in their original post, so they'll know about the rec -- and hopefully, they'll come over and join the fun!
We've had some questions come up re: what's allowed here at the comm. Maybe this will help you out:
-- We want the members (and the lurkers!) to come away from an spn_bigpretzel
post with a smile on their faces. (Or, laughing so hard they can't breathe.) If there's a little angst involved, that's fine, but the overall tone should be light. Ideally, we shouldn't have to *warn* for anything.
-- Whump is fine if it's funny. Keep Bad Day at Black Rock
-- For R and NC-17 rated sexin' -- make sure the atmosphere is *fun*. Teasing, laughter. Ridiculous use of toys. Something that will make the reader smile and say "Awww." Or laugh until their nose starts running.
-- Crack!fic is always welcome.
-- Schmoop is always welcome. Curtain!fic. Cuddling. John having a sweet moment with his kids. Some vintage Sam/Jess.
If you're still unsure whether something will fit, drop one of the mods a PM, and we'll be glad to help you out.
That's it for now, so GO! Enjoy the comm!
