First: thank you. You’re interested and therefore awesome.
Second: If it’s Sam Winchester/Arthur, it’s encouraged. If it fits Eames into the love triangle, it is pounced upon. If you have any idea what Saito’s Limbo-strained mind is going to think of Dick Roman — send it in!
Bonus but not required: If you’re at a loss or just curious about how to get these two crazy kids together, you can check out existing “Not Such As I Was” stories or the timeline first.
Next: submissions illustrating, elaborating, or adding new ideas about any thing (character, objects, locations, feelings, events) in the existing Not Such time line will be accepted*, and tagged as ‘Not Such’ or ‘AU’ as appropriate. While we’re on the subject: all other tags — characters, pairings, time frame, extra foot-note-like-danglers — should be included with the submission.
*With one exception: The Thing That Eames Did That Landed Him in the Service. You may allude to things rumored to be included in The Thing, but NO ONE will ever be able to Explain The Whole Thing. Not even Balthazar. No, Balthazar hasn’t a clue what went on there.
Were we numbering? - Ply your craft, whatever it may be. If you like captioning, go forth; if you like fic-let-ing, have at it; if you do art, please help us; if you’re ambitious, we’re damned glad to have you.
Memes sometimes happen. If you submit a great thing that gets resubmitted with new material, be flattered. Along that line: give credit; reblog rather than repost when possible.
Please, don’t ship/character/person/canon/fanon bash, all of which falls under the greatest law of all…Wheaton’s Law: Don’t be a dick. Let’s all have fun. And the BB dimple faces will multiply.
So, now that you’ve got all sorts of ideas to contribute: members select “post to: Project Lavoisier Has…” in the upper right corner of the entry editing page; non-members can submit here. And remember, the ask box is always open for new members, questions, comments, and occasional breakdowns into incoherent keysmash.
Last: thank you again, everyone, but especially the girls at Novakcest, whose guidelines I pretty much lifted whole cloth.
