I'm also wondering if things need to be standalone. I'm writing ficlets in a 'verse for a Merlin drabble/ficlet community, which lets me do short snippets once a week with characters and situations that intrigue me. I'm wondering if I can do something similar with this for Spuffy.
Is there someone out there who's comfortable with the comm who can answer my questions? I know I can always pm a mod, but...okay, I feel like an idiot doing that, and completely out of place and intimidated and over my head, so I'm hoping I can avoid it by asking here instead.
