Good Thor's Day, Puzzlers! I know many of us have half-finished puzzles in the wings, June is mine and my first comm Terror SciFi's birthday, and there is so much flying at us through the screen (good and bad) that it seemed like a good time for another amnesty month. But with some options to make it more fun...

Your Puzzle Choices:
1 - A specific month’s puzzle.
2 - Make your own puzzle from any previous pieces, one to unlimited.

*To fics of either type and any length, you may (but don’t have to) add your own visual stimulation.
Example:
picture, icon, banner, gif, screencap, etc. Must be posted with the fic (no larger than 350x350px above cut). Please use sources where appropriate.

This means that you can essentially add any new prompt you want to a puzzle, as long as you are able to post a visual representation of it. This also means that a specific character/pairing/fandom of your choice can count as a prompt. And yes, an emotion/phrase/word can count, if you have an icon for it.
Example: A sexy fic using the random object from Whatober and a banner of Bucky and Steve kissing counts as a two prompt puzzle.

*If making your own puzzle, you may duplicate categories as you wish.
Example:
A fic using one creature feature, 2 power hours, 3 random objects, and your favorite Dali painting.

What: October’s Puzzle.
Why: For striving, accomplishment, glory, and banners!

Apologies: To last month’s champions and participants for not having your banners done yet. I’ve had a forearm issue, but it’s getting better now.

Happy Amnesty month, everyone! Below the cut are direct links to all previous puzzles and reminders of their themes.

Up to four puzzles may be submitted this month. You may answer any previous puzzle. When posting, please include the month with the number of prompts and fic title in the post subject line. 

Reminder - December will be another amnesty month. October’s pieces will be seasonally themed - ghosts, witches, zombies, etc. November will focus on avian shifters and other mythological birds.

Apologies - I am way behind on everything right now, including my duties to you all. I am very sorry. Let’s say I’ve been ‘having issues’, and leave it that? But I promise, I am slowly pulling my head out of my ass ;-) Thanks to everyone who contributed in August! The masterlist will be posted soon.

What: August’s Puzzle.
Why: For striving, accomplishment, glory, and banners!
When: To enter the contest proper, post fics to [livejournal.com profile] puzzleprompts by 11pm EST, Wednesday August 31st.
Thanks: To everyone who has posted this week! I think I have your tags all given out now and look forward to reading your fics :-)
Apologies: I meant to have this puzzle up sooner, but your mod has been having some health issues. Which is also why there was no newsletter on Monday.
Reminder: September and December will be amnesty months, when you can answer any puzzle (up to four) that you like.
Note: As usual, each piece has some extra descriptions, examples, and restrictions. Even more than last month, many of the pieces are influenced by the existing ‘Creature Feature’ themes in myth and fandom. So depending on your interests, this will either be a ridiculously easy or frustratingly difficult puzzle.
For Author’s Notes: For fics longer than 500 words, with more than three prompts, or where a prompt is being used metaphorically/obscurely, it is super helpful to me if you all give me some description of how you are using each prompt. Likewise for original or small/obscure fandoms, where I may not know so and so or such and such is a whatsit. Thanks!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask below, or PM me if you feel more comfortable.
Cheers, and happy puzzling!

I'm sure some of you have been wondering when this was gonna get posted. But have no fear, if I haven't left you enough time -- September is going to be an amnesty month, where you can post completed puzzles from April - August.

Coming soon will be an announcement on how we are crossing over with the Cosmic Collision. For now, July's Puzzle...guess what the Creature Feature is?

Up to three completed puzzles may be posted to the comm by 11pm EST on July 31st for bannery goodness. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to leave them here. Or PM me, if you’d be more comfortable speaking in private.

What: May 2016 Puzzle.
Why: For fun and glory!
How: Combine the prompts however you can. Interpret them however your muse wants.
When: For prize banners, May puzzles must be posted to [livejournal.com profile] puzzleprompts between Sunday, May 1, 12 am EST to Tuesday, May 31, 11 pm EST.
Note: This month, I’ve added some extra description to the pieces, for clarity/inspiration’s sake.

Note 2: Reminder - you can enter up to three puzzles per month for bannery goodness.

Note 3: Modification of categories - to make my job easier, and the categories more sensible, I’ve separated out the geological feature aspect from ‘Cosmic Constant’, into it’s own category of ‘Geology Rocks’. As this doesn’t actually change anything, I'm including the change in this puzzle.

Note 4: For your fellow members' benefit, if anyone has any questions specific to this puzzle, please ask them here, if you like, instead of the Page a Mod Post, which is where more general questions/concerns can go.
