The posting period is October 25th through November 1st. We're not going to be crazy sticklers about that deadline, but we would LOVE to be able to read all of your stories as soon as possible, so if you can, try and plan to be finished during that time frame.
One last note: this is a rich and wonderful resource, so by all means, don't limit yourselves to the prompts we've listed! Go forth and find your own as well! Any pairings, any genre. This is a Due South challenge, but crossovers are welcome, including RPS.
