Fanfiction, Graphics*, Fanvids and essays.

Please note that all content must be new and should be created for winter_of_faith.

*Graphics: allowable content this year will include icons, wallpapers, and edited picspams. By edited, I mean picspams that have a theme of some sort and you have edited. I don't want to see just a bunch of random screenshots of Faith from the series.

It certainly has been. I've since been able to add your date to the calender. Thanks for signing up.
I'm late, but I can't bear to miss out. Could I get 4 Feb, which seems to be still free? Or 10 Feb would be even better unless you're saving it for a free for all or closing post.
can I post multiple content, for example some icons and then a fic? and if so, can I do icons of Eliza herself (from photoshoots, etc)?
Yes you can post multiple content.

Images of Eliza Dushku herself: no. However, I will allow it if:

a) It's a photoshoot of Eliza as Faith.
b) You somehow transcend the photoshoot image so it's recognizable as Faith and not Eliza the actress.
