WELCOME to the club where you can upload all your art of male characters and by just being a member you can claim a Bishie of your very own!

(We say Bishies because we aren't picky about them actually being bishounen - Bishie here just means "any male character".)

:star:Claimed Bishies:star:
check this list first to see if your boy is free

Didn't see him there? Good, that means he's probably yours! Take a look at this...

...and now send a join request, listing the Bishie you want and the series or fandom he comes from.

Please follow this format, for easier listing:
Given Name - Surname (if applicable) - series/fandom - what type of fandom it is (anime/manga, game, movies, tv show, comics, cartoon, book... other?)

You'll be approved (or rejected because you didn't list those things) pretty quickly. If the Bishie you want is claimed, you'll be informed of that and still approved, but you'll have to choose a new guy.

All joined up? Good! Now you have until the end of the month to fill this out:

If you don't, you will risk losing out on him, because he won't be reserved - anyone can come in, make a card, and take him from you.

Now that you're a full-fledged member, you'll have to submit a picture or story about him at least once a month - if you miss three in a row, your Bishie will no longer be reserved, just as if you hadn't made a card. Someone can join the group and take him from you until you submit again.

You can also submit pictures or stories about any other male character. Fanart and original guys are both welcome. Submission limits are 3/day.

Have a Bishie and want to change to a new one? Make sure he's not claimed, and then:


August Prompt

Hello again claimants. Apologies for the late journal; your faithful admin was at a con until yesterday, but never fear - it is time for our next monthly prompt. Since it's August and nothing fun happens in August, this time around our prompt shall be:


You can take this prompt however you would like - adhere closely to the words if you want or just be sort of vaguely inspired by it. There are no prompt police here to say you're doing it wrong.

There is no quality requirement, but please make an effort to color your pictures and write more than 500 words for your stories (depending on which you do) - effort counts for more than quality. Please submit your finished pictures or stories to the Monthly Activity folder here, and in your artist comments mention that it is for the prompt so I leave it in that folder.

You don't have to participate in the monthly prompts to keep your Bishie, but you do need to submit something every month, so why not take the inspiration?

If you have suggestions for a prompt, feel free to leave it in a comment.

Endangered Bishies

:star:Important announcement:star:

There is a slight change in the Bishie-keeping policy as of now; instead of the rather blurry "submit something every month and then have a grace month before losing him", your Bishies are now endangered the month after their points total drops into the negative. As a reminder, he loses five points every month you do not submit something for him. (For more information on points earned, see the FAQ.)

Here is the current list of Bishies who are officially "endangered", meaning that if anyone wants him they can come and claim him out from under the current owner:

Sebastian (Black Butler)
Silver (Pokemon)
Naruto (Naruto)
Lelouch (Code Geass)

There are other Bishies who are sitting right at zero and will be vulnerable next month, so if you want to check on your current points, you can look here.

I used to be part of the group 4 years ago! It looks much more organised than before.

I'm glad you think it's an improvement. ^-^ Of course the founder and original mods didn't do anything wrong, but the groups system was very new at the time and I'm working with a lot more experience.

That's true! Back then groups had only just started being a thing and they had a flood of members, it must'v been tough as nails for them back then. But still, now the group is very lovely (there are groups out there nowadays that are still extremely...chaotic). Thanks for accepting me in the group, by the way!
