IT IS TIME FOR THE ANNUAL SHONEENCLUB JUNE CONTESTS! \o/
I know the community has been rather quiet as of late, and we haven't had one of our contests since October, but I still love this place and am excited about what is to come. ♥ There was no way I could let June pass without doing this. I look forward to it now and I hope all of you do as well.
The theme for this year's June contests is --
All of the fiction and fanart submissions should be centered around the concept of vacation, travel, a journey (literally), or some kind of time spent away from the normal day to day activities that Sho and Nino would go through.
For Example: Sho and Nino get time off and decide to go to America together, but somehow they get lost in San Diego.
Or, if you wanted to go AU -- Nino and Sho are traveling salesman together, and things happen over time with all those hotel rooms.
Use your imaginations! I know this community is filled with creative energy and we'll have a great time as usual. :D Find out more about the contest guidelines under the cut!
