|Bill/Fleur Last Drabble Writer Standing|
|""What do I care how 'e looks? I am good-looking enough for both of us, I theenk! All these scars show is zat my husband is brave!"|
- Fleur Delacour
Salut, and welcome to bwfd_ldws, a drabble writing community that focuses on the relationship between everyone's favorite quarter-Veela, Fleur Delacour, and that sexy cursebreaker of a man, Bill Weasley! We scoured the wilds of LiveJournal, searching days and nights (actually, it was more like two hours) for a Bill/Fleur LDWS community, only to come up with naught but despair and shattered hopes.
So, we decided to rectify that. Thus, bwfd_ldws was born!
What's a LDWS, you ask?
Well, its a drabble writing competition in which the strong are awarded and the weak are poked with sharp sticks! Actually, every week competitors submit a drabble in response to a prompt we (the mods) provide. Then, the masses (you) read and vote on their offerings and decide their fate. At the end of the week, one person will be crowned king (or queen) of the challenge, Mod's Choice, and one writer will, sadly, be voted off the island. This then begins all over again for the next week and continues until there is ONLY ONE.
And what do the writers get for this grueling task?
ETERNAL GLORY! Also, banners will be awarded to first-place winners and moderator's choice for each challenge. Additionally, each participant voted off will receive a participant's banner. Therefore, everyone gets a shiny! Oh, and I guess the Last Drabble Writer Standing might get something too. ;)
