So I talked it over with Mage, and she thought it was a neat idea and gave it the go-ahead. If she has more to say on this she'll post right here, so stay tuned, yo.

Anyway, this is just a note about a little thing writing style we thought would be cool for Weavers to participate in, that isn't an RP of any sort. It's really more of a short story deal; a really short story, at lest IMO. They could be as long as you want them to be, really.

And basically that's what you do. Just tell a little one-shot story. It can be anything from a tiny little arc with a full plot, or simply an extended scene. It doesn't just have to be with your character either--that's the only catch, is that basically Mage and I are giving Weavers permission to use each other's characters. Making up for this is the fact that these one-shots will not just be taken as canon immediately, if at all. If it's going to be used as canon, you can bet Mage will probably post saying so. The stories can also be used for critiquing. So if you think you need to practice your writing skills a bit, please, do write something and post it.

Each one-shot story should be posted in this forum (Midgard Below) as its own topic (not this topic); this will make it more conducive to discussion about the stories too, if desired.

And that's about it. If you have questions, post them here. It's a pretty opened ended thing--we just want to encourage people to write and have fun with it.

I like this idea. I'll see if I can come up with something. I presume this is an open-ended affair - no time limit; we just post at any time now and in the future that we happen to feel like writing a story?

Correct. I doubt it'll ever actually end either.
