I was considering making a livejournal to give my fanfiction a home, but are there any good communities that are active and that house Bangel stories? Or challenge communities?

I saw a few here and in some other places, but most of them are inactive or rarely updated. :/

The Scribes of Angel, http://scribes.darkstarfic.com/ run by our Mistress Dark Star is still alive and kicking. Dark Star is always looking for good B/A stories.

Also, Writer's Toybox on Live Journal, http://writers-toybox.livejournal.com/
also run by Dark Star, has a challenge up right now. For August it's The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse challenge. Any story that involves an apocalypse or the four horsemen, and of course, Buffy and Angel.

And then there is theBA Rosebud LJ. http://ba-rosebuds.livejournal.com/
500 words or so for a story. There are prompts for those.

Thank you so much!

I may just do the Four Horsemen Challenge. Sounds interesting. Even if I can't finish before the deadline, it'll still be good practice.

Thank you again. I think I'll be joining those lj communities. :]

I don't think it matters if you are late for the challenge. You can post your story, any story, anytime at Writer's Toybox.

I'm glad to have been of some help.

I'll look forward to reading whatever you put up.

Ares is right, Sarah. While the deadline for The Four Horsemen Challenge is the end of August, you can still post your stories after the event. Writer’s Toybox is the ideal place for B/A writers because there are lots of prompts, games, articles and writing topics available. Newcomers are welcome, as they are at Rosebuds as well, and everyone from those who have never written before up to the very experienced will find something of interest.

I’m also quite likely to start something else off, and in fact I do have some ideas…!

Wow, these communities seem really great!

I've joined both of them and I hope to post up some stories soon. I also hope they'll be enjoyable, since I've been in a bit of a writing rut lately. If I'm lucky, those prompts will help out!

Haha, well thank you. :]

I've already posted up one story, but I did so with great hesitation. Since I've posted one, I feel more confident now to post more when they get written.

The next one will probably be a rosebud story, as I've already got an idea from a previous prompt. Now, that I'm quite excited about!

So nice to see new writers in B/A! If you're still looking for communities, we'd love to see you at Joyous Rebellion. It's general B/A, not fiction, but anything you want to post is appreciated.

Also, Open on Sunday is a fun, active, weekly drabble challenge community, not ship-affiliated. Drabble-writing can be addictive and it's neat to see what other people come up with every week.

A drabble community, eh? Thanks for the link, Kairos. Drabbles are addictive. Shocked

Your first story at the Toybox was a lovely one too, Drunkenbeetle. It is great to have new writers on board.

Thank you very much, Ares! I would join a purely drabble community, but I'm not very good at them.

Usually, my stories range from 10,000 - 20,000 words, but lately, I've just been writing the shortest stories I can. The ones I've been posting on lj have been 1,000 - 2,000, but I'm going to start posting and writing longer stories again. :]

Heh! A woman after my own heart. I used to write 10- 20,000 word stories too.

However, time constraints...my stories are a lot shorter now. However, drabbles can be addictive and a drabble really pushes you to cut off the deadwood and make you be more concise and utilise the remaining 100 words to their best advantage.
Does that make sense?

I love drabbles and I have learned a lot form them.
