Fanmix challenges are due TUESDAY at 11:59 pm, in case there's anyone that needs more time and because I've been so out of it that I honestly forgot that a fanmix challenge was happening. : )

So if you're freaking out over making the deadline, you've got more hours to complete it.

Chat Party TIME! [21 Mar 2007|12:24am]

Happy Birthday to seriouslyrent

Thank you all for a wonderful first year in business!

The chat has started over on MSN Messenger since no one wanted to go on AIM.

Comment here if you want in! I'll have it up all day long. : )

Chat Party! [20 Mar 2007|02:03pm]

Wow, so tomorrow came more quickly than I anticipated. ^_^"

If you're interested in taking part in the Birthday Party for seriouslyrent tomorrow just send an IM to me on AIM (my screen name is fadeinonme) and I'll invite you into the chatroom. I hope to start the chatroom at approximately midnight and will hopefully have it up all day long. If you'd prefer you can comment here or send an e-mail to seriouslyrent@yahoo.com with your screen name on AIM and the best time to invite you into the chatroom. If you don't have AIM, I may start a seperate chatroom on MSN messenger if there are enough people who need that.

I would just like to say thank you to all of the members and mods who help to make this community, and a lot of who have stuck by for the whole year. I really appreciate everyone who has ever participated or helped in the community in any way. When I started this community a year ago, I never anticipated to have more than 50 members and now we're up to over 100 members. So thank you very, very much.

I know this community is kind of dead at the moment, but I hope to revitalize it. It's certainly been dead before, and it has come back! It's the community that just won't die. ^^"

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions as to what they want to see happen in this community, please comment here, or let me know during the chat!

Seriouslyrent Anniversary! [05 Mar 2007|01:25am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

So March 21st will be seriouslyrent's first birthday! (Yay!)

We were thinking of having a massive chat-party to celebrate, one that I would leave up for (hopefully) 24 hours and you all will be invited to join!

I realize not a whole lot has been happening with this community lately, but part of the party can be deciding just what to do with this poor, lost community. The rest of the party will give you the chance to 'meet' fellow Rentheads, make some friends, uhm... internet-dance?, and partake in some fun and games (does anyone know any good chat room games ;) )

This post is kind of just to see who would be interested if we make this happen. It'll probably be over AIM and next week I'll create a post with screened comments so I can get everyone's AIM name to invite them into the chatroom.

If you have any neat ideas about this chat-party, please, post them here.

It's hard to believe this place has really been open for a year now. Thank you to all 124 members for joining and participating in whatever way you do. I really appreciate it so much!

Music Prompt [19 Feb 2007|03:40am]

I know that we have been really sporadic with our prompts lately, but it's because we want to encourage you all to participate in rentchallenge... really. >.>

Use the lyrics below for inspiration to write.

Any minute now, my ship is coming in
I'll keep checking the horizon
I'll stand on the bow, feel the waves come crashing
Come crashing down down down, on me

And you say, be still my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in
But don't you understand
I already have a plan
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

The music prompt for this Monday comes from the song, "I'm Waiting for my Real Life to Begin" by Colin Hay.

Awards for Fanmix Challenge #6 [19 Feb 2007|03:28am]

[ mood | sick ]

I hoped to have these done earlier, but my power adapter on my laptop is broken, and there isn't another computer in the house with a decent graphics editing program. -_-

Thank you for all the wonderful entries and for your participation!

I know voting must have been very hard, because all of the entries were really fantastic. Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to all of you for all your hard work in making these and for sharing your music with us.

Another fanmix challenge will be coming in the very near future so be prepared. < 3

If you haven't voted for the Mark/Roger fanmixes yet, please do so by tonight!

I'll be counting up votes, and hopefully have awards ready by sometime tomorrow (hopefully).

After the awards are posted there will be another fanmix challenge, because I'm too much of an addict to say no.

Awards for Fanmix Challenge #3!

Sorry for the extreme lateness. It was an awesome fanmix, and it deserved a banner that was more on time.

Fanmix Reminder [09 Feb 2007|01:39pm]

Just a reminder that Mark/Roger fanmixes are due February 10th, which is tomorrow (in case you're one of those people who never know the date like me)!

I realize I didn't put a time on when they were due, but I had assumed February 10th by 11:59pm.

Is there anyone who has been working crazy on this fanmix thinking it was due by like 12am of February 10th? If that's what most people have thought then I will change the time. ^_^"

Good luck everyone!

When did we get 117 members?

Hey everyone! Thanks for joining! I'm Carissa one of the mods! I started this community almost a year ago actually so it's nice to see that we're still alive if nothing else and that we have so many members! Feel free to introduce yourself here if you want in a comment, especially since we have so many new pople!

Also we have two new affiliates!

_lostconnection which is a new place to put your fanfiction! You've got to be willing to review a story for every story that you post. This way you're sure to get feedback so that's exciting!

And this community has been long over due but:

capslock_rent Every other fandom under the sun has one! Rent definetly needed one!

Situation Prompt [27 Jan 2007|01:34am]

Thank you to lilchibibunny, guest prompt provider, who gives you all the following prompt.

Window says:
How about Alison comes to one of the people after she break up with Benny?

Window says:
What if she contacts Mimi?

Window says:
Like, "Yo, what's up, you totally got my husband to cheat on me."

Window says:

Window says:
But, y'know.

So to put it a little more clearly: The prompt is to write a fic in which Alison breaks up with Benny and then interacts with Mimi in some way, knowing that Benny cheated on Mimi with her.

FIC: The World Just Stopped [26 Jan 2007|05:10pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

Title: The World Just Stopped
Characters/Pairing: Mark/Roger, mention of Roger/Mimi, Benny/Mimi and Maureen/Joanne
Word Count: 1542
Rating: PG-13
Summary: While Roger's caught up in events, Mark feels like the world has suddenly stopped.
Notes: Totally Christopher J. Hanke's Mark, and Tim Howar's Roger. This resulted from just seeing Rent with Christopher J. Hanke, and... at the end of "Halloween" he looks completely terrified at the idea of being alone. And then "Goodbye Love" starts, and Roger walks on, and as soon as Mimi mentions Santa Fe Mark's expression shifts from scared to completely broken. It was... ow. Written for the rentforbastards prompt in which a character feels like time is moving too slowly or accelerating too quickly, and this seriouslyrent prompt.
Disclaimer: I don't own Rent, Mark, or Roger. Nor do I own Christopher J. Hanke or Tim Howar, I'm afraid.

( Frozen in a moment... )

Fan Mix Challenge #5 - Promptish [25 Jan 2007|10:24pm]

For Fanmix #5 the challenge is to use the prompt: 'childhood' to make a Rent fanmix.

Now I don't care if you want to focus on just one of the character's childhood or if you want to have a childhood song for each character. It's all entirely up to you.

Feel free to travel into their teen years, but there will probably be a specific teen fanmix
challenge in the future sometime. ^_^

Fanmixes are due January 30th!

Good luck! Guidelines in case you've forgotten.

And DOWNLOAD AND REVIEW THE OTHER FANMIX. ...:-D Seriously. These are hard work (which is why I never get one done >.>)

If you have any questions please ask them here or send us an e-mail: seriouslyrent@yahoo.com

Word Prompt Wednesday [24 Jan 2007|02:41pm]

I know that I'm late again, but since we don't really have deadlines anymore for any of our pompts... ^_^" I figure as long as I get them out for you all then I'm doing good, right?

The prompt for today is a quote from Ally McBeal:

"Verbal spankings leave me wanting for more."

[ Something New ] [23 Jan 2007|12:24am]

I'm trying something a little different this time around. This idea has been swimming around for a while but we never put it to work, so, why not now? This won't affect the other prompts, though.

This is a picture prompt. Write fic inspired by the image or including the image or the scene. Whatever comes to your mind, just keep it RENT related, obviously. ;x If this goes off well, they might become a regular occurance.

time –noun 1. the system of those sequential relations that any event has to any other, as past, present, or future; indefinite and continuous duration regarded as that in which events succeed one another.
