What if there isn't anything in the Chocobo Down Database that I want to create for? What if I want to ask for something else?
We'll open an entry for new prompts this weekend. This way everybody can look through our official unfilled prompt list first and get started there, before we generate new prompts.

Some reminders for this round:
  • Please include the prompt you are filling somewhere when you post your work!
  • Since the mods can't guarantee we have the time to look at every work ourselves, please make sure you label your work appropriately, so that we know who gets bonus points and who doesn't!


Good luck!

DOINK! Chocobo Races 2013
October/November - Minor Characters & Songfics!


Administrative Bits

  • You can browse and fill the Chocobo Down list at any time!


Bonus Theme
For the next month and a half our bonus theme is Minor Characters & Songfics Month! Do you have a favorite non-main-party character? Do you have a favorite song you've been aching to apply to your favorite characters? This is the month for you!

You can:


  • Create fanwork about your favorite minor characters! We're being broad and defining this as characters not in the main party.

  • Create fanwork using your favorite songs. Although we have specified "fics" here for our songfics theme, we would love to see some creative, non-textual interpretations of this theme. "Songwork" dpes sound a little odd! Any vidders out there? ;)

  • It's fine to choose one theme or the other — there's no requirement to combine them! All your songfics about main party characters and regular work about minor characters are awesome!



If you have any questions, please leave them on this post!

How will the scoring go?
  • Any work that fits the theme of Minor Characters & Songfics will receive 10 points.
  • Any work that doesn't fit the Minor Characters & Songfics theme, but is submitted in Minor Characters & Songfics, will still receive 5 points.
  • For an extra 5 points on top of the bonus points for our two themes, you can create fanwork featuring songfics featuring minor characters. Good luck. ;)
  • Remember that you have to be signed up for a team before you post your work in order to get points!

DOINK! Chocobo Races 2012
September -- Collaboration Month


Administrative Bits
  • If you haven't yet chosen your team, make sure you sign up here, on the 2013 roster, if you want your work to count for points!
  • Confused? Need a refresher on the rules? Wondering how to post? Get more information about Chocobo Racing here.
  • You can browse and fill the Chocobo Down list at any time!


September's Bonus Theme
This month is Collaboration Month. This is a bit complicated, so hang with us while we explain.

This month, we'll be giving bonus points for collaborative work - any work completed with another fun fandom person. This includes collaborative fanfiction, collaborative fanart, illustrated fanart, fanfiction about a piece of artwork, a series of exchanged drabbles or sketches ... honestly, the sky is the limit. This is a twisted combination of "non-written media month" and "friending meme" -- we're pretty easygoing, so there really aren't too many "rules" you'll have to follow to qualify for this month's bonus points.

How does it work?

If you're interested in collaborative work, leave a comment on this post.. List what fandoms, characters, pairings you're super excited about; list what media you create and what kind of media/creators you'd like to collaborate with.

Then:
  • Scan through the existing comments and see if there's anyone you're interested in collaborating with; if there are any prompts or ideas that catch your eye, leave that person a reply comment and get in touch with them to work something out.

  • Wait and see who replies to your bait. Once someone does, figure out responsibilities and go to town!

We really aren't being strict here; if you have any questions, you can leave them on this post as well.

How will the scoring go?
  • Any work that fits the theme of Collaboration will receive 10 points - 5 points for being submitted to the Chocobo Races, + an extra 5 points to each participant for collaborative work. Lots of point possibilities here, friends!
  • Any work that doesn't fit the September theme, but is submitted in September, will still receive 5 points.
  • Remember that you have to be signed up for a team before you post your work in order to get points!


What prompts are eligible for this month?


What if there isn't anything in the Chocobo Down Database that I want to create for? What if I want to ask for something else?
We'll open an entry for new prompts in about one week. This way everybody can look through our official unfilled prompt list first and get started there, before we generate new prompts.

Some reminders for this round:
  • Please include the prompt you are filling somewhere when you post your work!
  • Since the mods can't guarantee we have the time to look at every work ourselves, please make sure you label your work appropriately, so that we know who gets bonus points and who doesn't!


Ready, Set, Go... form your party, it's teamwork time!

August Bonus Theme -- Small Fandom Month!


Administrative Bits

  • Confused? Need a refresher on the rules? Wondering how to post? Get more information about Chocobo Racing here.
  • You can browse and fill the Chocobo Down list at any time!


August Bonus Theme
This month is Small Fandom Month! We love when we can make a small-fandom connection in DOINK! Final Fantasy Exchange because we can make someone's smaller fandom dreams come true -- but often there are smaller-fandom prompts we just can't match up. This month is to help make up for that! Basically, if you create work for a small fandom, you get bonus points! If you create work for a tiny fandom, you get even more bonus points!

How will the scoring go?
  • Any work submitted for Small Fandoms - FFIV (and The After Years), FFVI, FFIX - will be worth 10 points each.
  • Any work submitted for Extra Small Fandoms - FFI, FFII, FFIII, FFV and Legend of the Crystals, FFXI, VS, all Tactics games, FFXIV, FF: TSW, FFU, FF: MQ, FF: 4 Heroes, all Crystal Chronicles games - will be worth 15 points each.
  • Any work that doesn't fit the August theme, but is submitted in August, will still receive 5 points.
  • Remember that you have to be signed up for a team before you post your work in order to get points!

DOINK! Chocobo Races 2013
July Theme: Free For All!




Welcome to the 2013 Chocobo Races! Earlier this year in rousing final boss battle, Team Ifrit roared to victory by a slim margin of only five points! Will we see Team Ifrit charge to victory once more, or will new team captains and new team alliances lead Team Shiva or Team Ramuh to usurp Team Ifrit's place in the pantheon of Chocobo Races champions? Only time will tell. Let the races begin!

Administrative Bits

  • Confused? Need a refresher on the rules? Wondering how to post? Get more information about Chocobo Racing here.
  • You can browse the Chocobo Down list at any time!


How will the scoring go?
  • Any work will receive 10 points. Because various forms of various media have various 'standards', there will be no strict quality standards this month. We just ask that you make your work equivalent to ~500 words of fanfic — whatever you consider that benchmark to be.
  • Remember that you have to be signed up for a team before you post your work in order to get points!


What prompts are eligible for this month?


Some reminders for this round:
  • Please include the prompt you are filling somewhere when you post your work!


Ready, Set, Go! The July Chocobo Races are open!
