This is a community dedicated to the submission and discussion of plot bunnies for fanfiction for the show The O.C. on Fox.
1) Post story ideas and challenges: Ever had an idea for a story? Submit it here and maybe with some luck it will get claimed by a writer and written up for you! Become a member here and post your plot bunnies in their own entry, or as a non-member post your plot bunnies as comments here.
If you post in your own entry, please add the appropriate tags for the characters, genre, and season.
2) Find story ideas: We invite writers to come here and browse the list of unclaimed plot bunnies. Maybe you are looking for some ideas for your Big Damn Table? Maybe you are suffering from writer's block? Maybe you'll find some inspiration here. Maybe you'll find the exact idea you were looking for, or perhaps something here will inspire you to write something else entirely. You never know. The idea of this community is to encourage more writing of any sort.
Note that it is okay if you express interest in an idea and then don't find the time to do it. However, once you have determined that you will definitely not be following through on a story idea that you have claimed, please reply to the post with the plot bunny and officially unclaim it, so it can be freed up for someone else to pursue.
3) Bribery: Bribery, like offering icon making skills, fanarts, fanfictions covers in exchange for stories is permitted (and encouraged) but not mandatory.
4) This community is open to everyone: Writers, non-writers, aspiring writers, livejournal members, anonymous posters, anybody. (You don't have to be a writer to submit plot bunnies! Anybody with a good story idea is encouraged to share it!) This community accepts ideas and discussions about all pairings and all genres. Slash is accepted.
Note that ideas submitted here may be explicit in nature, but please if so, put them behind an lj-cut and put a warning outside the cut.

5) FLAMES WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! Any post or comment containing flames will be summarily deleted and the poster banned from this community. Come on, guys, there is never an excuse for being nasty. This community is a place people should enjoy and flaming is not cool at all.
