Hello and welcome to what_she_saw! Created in 2007 by memorysdaughter, what_she_saw serves as LiveJournal.com's first souce for fans of the CBS (former NBC) series MEDIUM (2005-2011) (starring Patricia Arquette and Jake Weber), to post and read fanfiction based on the television series. We are (as far as I know) the very first "MEDIUM" fan fiction LJ in existance. Go us! While its currently being considered to allow other media related to Medium to be posted (Icons, Wallpapers, Manipulations, Banners, Fan videos, the works), this community is, first and formost, for the posting of "MEDIUM" fanfiction. Feel free to post one/two shots, drabbles, [epic] chapter stories, whatever comes to mind! We will also have challenges once a week every Monday, and everyone is welcome to participate. The entries for the challenges should be between 100 and 1000 words.
Eventually we would like to create a program modeled after joss100, where brave writers would crank out 100 fics (again, between 100 and 1000 words) based on a prompt table. Just remember to follow the rules of the community and everything should be hunky-dorey for all invovled. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact the Moderators and someone should get back to you as soon as [humanly] possible. Thank you for reading and enjoy the community!
Please feel free to write on ANY prompts in the community! Start at the beginning and head for the end, pick out random ones, do it in any order you choose! Just WRITE! :)

#1. Spell check all your stories and poetry. There is no excuse for not performing this duty. If you do not have a word processor that has the spell checking feature, use a search engine such as Google.com to find one.
#2. Proofread all entries for grammar and other aspects of writing before submission. 'Hot off the press' content is often riddled with errors. No one is perfect but it is the duty of the writer to perform to the best of his/her ability.
#3. When posting fanfiction please remember to Title Your Posts. Especially Chapter Stories [EXAMPLE: "What She Saw - Chapter One, Two, Three (or 1/20), etc." or "The One Behind the Wheel - ONE SHOT/DRABBLE].
#4. When leaving Reviews or Comments be courteous to the author and do not flame them (the same can be said to the authors as well). Offer them constructive criticism on the things they could imrpove instead if you didn't like something. If you disagree with something or a certain type of fanfiction, then stay away from it. Do not venture beyond the reading the prompt.
#5. Absolutely no character / pairing Bashing. The same rules above apply to this. If a certain pairing or character bothers you, then stay away from it.
#6. Remember to label your ganfiction with warnings to give the reader a heads up on the content inside your stories.
#7. Label your stories with the proper ratings (See: Fanfiction Ratings for an example)
#8. When posting a story, please use this basic format outside the LiveJournal cut:

+ You have no associates (friends) nor are you a member of any communities.
+ Your journal is new and not established.
