***This is the page for submissions. Please visit the Master List for links to all of the submissions that have been posted so far!***

Comments are completely open so you do not need an LJ account to post. If you do have an LJ account, you may post a link here, or just make a post to the community. We will still include a link on this list, but that way if you are submitting media that is in a format other sites may not host (such as FSTs), you will have a place to make those posts. If you choose to post to the community, please make sure your entry is viewable to the public! That way we are not linking to entries that are locked or friends-only!

Please use the following format when posting your submission in the comments:





Other Info:


*If you have a twitter and would like your account linked please put that above the title of your fic in your submissions comment

*You may post either here or the submission thread at ff.net. Please pick one.

*If you want your story translated by Alessia Heartilly to Italian, please give permission in this thread.

*To add to A03 - we need you to submit your piece to the "Where I Belong" collection so it may be approved

*Also at A03 please tag both "Where I Belong" and "Where I Belong collection" until the we are given our own official tag.

*You may submit a Work In Progress, so it may be added to the C2/Collections pages! It will be listed on the LJ master list as a WiP. The submission must be completely by August 31 or it will be removed from the challenge--we still want people to find your story, but as the challenge in August-only, everything needs to be completely by the end of the month!

Please DO NOT post any submissions until August 1, 2012, 12:01am PST.

FFVIII-deliver me in a black winged bird
Well, here is the welcome post to the LJ page for the Where I Belong challenge!

Even though if you have found this page you probably already know a little bit about the challenge, here is the copy and pasted basic information the idea's creator, ashes_and_wings originally posted to her LJ:


This August, to celebrate Squall's birthday, we have decided to make his present one that's difficult for even him to return -a month-long Rinoa and Squall fandom challenge! (He truly is impossible to buy for... it tends to go badly for all parties involved.) Over the last decade many authors, artists, and even readers have drifted away from the fandom - it's only natural - people change, fandoms change, and things that you may have enjoyed in your free time might no longer be a priority.

Here's where the challenge starts! It's is not about bringing people back to the fandom to stay; this is simply about encouraging everyone to return to the roots of something we all enjoyed. It is also important to help the new authors/artists gain the confidence to post/draw/etc. We all had to start somewhere and for a lot of us it was in Final Fantasy VIII's little corner of the 'net.

Why Rinoa and Squall? Well, at one point, we were a close-knit group. Another reason? Romance was one of the most important aspects to FFVIII's designers - it remained a key, pivitol aspect through the entire game and to the franchise. To be clear - this challenge is about the relationship between Rinoa and Squall in a positive light. Yes, we easily can say that there were holes in the story, but that's what fan-created works do - give one a chance to explore.

We understand that everyone's tastes differ and there maybe interest in exploring other characters in the future. But for now, the "Where I Belong" challenge is designed with a single ideal - to explore the canon romance. We'll need help in spreading the word for the upcoming challenge.

Though you may think of this as a family or class reunion of sorts, we encourage everyone to take part. It doesn't matter if it's your first story/piece of art or your hundred and first - you are part of the challenge!

Again, this is open to all - writers, artists, icon makers, fanvid-ers, audio programs users, you name it, as long as it's Squall and Rinoa centric - we want to include it.


So, as she has said, this is for having fun! If you have come here through livejournal and have not seen anything related to this challenge yet, check out the links post for information on the ff.net forums, twitter page, A03 accounts, and facebook page, as well as a more detailed list of guidelines for the challenge.

Welcome once again!
