Hey everyone!

I know it's been a while, but we really want to try and get this going.

muses_mistress has joined me as a co-mod, and we're hoping to start off with a short, two month round beginning Nov. 1.

Before that can happen, though, we need more members! And hopefully, that'll include some of you who had applied previously.

We've also decided to cut down to two teams, due to low member count. This means that we're gonna need everyone who wants to play to reapply with your team preference (Team Rizzoli & Team Isles).

1. Please read all the rules before applying.

2. To qualify, your journal must be at least a month old and show signs of activity (posts, friends, comms, etc.) Since we are trying to fill out the teams, brand new LJ members will be permitted to join even if they have nothing in their journal

3. Please answer all questions.

4. If you don't have the time to participate at least once every two weeks, please don't apply

5. If your application is accepted, we will send you an invite to the main community and your team community, all you have to do is accept.


Example Application:

Name: Laura
Username: theonlyspl
Teams in order of preference: Rizzoli, Isles.
Have you seen all the (aired) episodes of Rizzoli & Isles? Yes!
Anything Else? Dirty Little Secret ;)
Referral: N/A [if someone has referred you, please put their username here]

Copy and paste the content of the text box below and answer all questions.

*Note: in some cases, you may not get to be in your first team choice because we have to keep the number of members in each team equal but remember, team names are just that -names- all members of all teams can create works for any characters they desire, despite team names*

  1. No swearing. We want this to be a friendly environment for all members ;)
  2. No bashing. Characters, actors, teams, members - do not bash any of them, please. You are entitled to your own opinions but harsh opinions must be kept out of our community.
  3. You must participate in at least one challenge every two weeks. Inactive members will be cut. You will receive notices/warnings before you are cut, so if you have a really good reason for being inactive, let us know. If you've been cut and would like to rejoin, you will have to reapply.  Hiatus/breaks may be given if asked, but you must PM a mod if you need one.
  4. No spam. We do not accept pimp posts for other comms, etc. 
  5. Read the challenge rules. In order to keep the community rules brief, we will have extra rules for each challenge.
  6. In the "Anything Else" category of your application to join, please write one of your favourite Rizzoli & Isles episodes. (ex. Burning Down the House, Dirty Little Secret, etc.) Do not use the same as the person who applied before you or I will know you haven't read the rules!

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask ;)

  1. Games: These can be anything from word finds to luck games. Game challenges are easy to participate in, so if you're pressed for time, join in on a game challenge ;)
  2. Writings: Anything from drabbles to poems to long stories and everything in between.
  3. Graphics: Icons, wallpapers, photomanipulations, etc. (You may need a program such as photoshop)
  4. Magical: Special challenges including gift exchanges, discussions, group projects and more.


1) Every challenge awards a set amount of points for participation, this will vary with different tasks/challenges and will be stated in the challenge post.

2) Winners will receive bonus points determined by the difficulty of the challenge/task

3) Points are awarded to you and combined with those of your team. If you do not state your team name when posting your response to a challenge, no points will be awarded.

 Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a Landcomm?

The term "Landcomm" refers to an interactive challenge community for fans of chosen fandom(s) where members are split into teams and are presented with a variety of challenges (games, writings, fanart, etc.) that are to be completed by the specified deadline. For each challenge you participate in, you will receive points, which are accumulated into your team's points. At the end of each round, the team with the most points is named the winners!

2. Do I need to have a LiveJournal account to join?

Yes. Luckily, signing up is free and easy. Simply go to the home page and click "Create an Account". The rest is pretty straight forward.

3. Where should I submit my entry to the challenge?

In a comment to the challenge post, unless otherwise stated in the rules.

4. What is a round of pimping?

This is when there is a Pimp!Task in which members receive points for promoting the community ("pimping")

5. What if I can't do a challenge?

Then you just don't do it. You are only required to do at least one challenge every two weeks, this is because we know you have lives! 

6. Can I submit something old I've made?

No, you cannot. Anything submitted must be made specifically for the challenge/task. The entry must be new and kept secret until the challenge results have been posted.

7. Can I share my entry with other people?

Yes, you can, but not until after the challenge/voting is over (unless otherwise stated in the instructions).

8. Can I submit other people's work?

No. Unless it is a collaborative challenge, or the instructions state otherwise.

9. Can I vote for my own entry?

No. If this were allowed, everyone would vote for themselves and no one would win.

10. What is a sig? What are the regulations for Signature Banners?

Sig is short form for Signature Banner. Go here for more information.

11. What is the Spoiler Policy?

The spoiler policy for challenges is as follows:
No content from new episodes can be used in challenge entries for a week after the episode airs. This means nothing--not art, not fic, nothing. This doesn't only go for challenges that have voting; it goes for everything.

12. I have a problem/question. What do I do?

Contact a mod/team leader. Or comment here.

After you have been assigned a team, you are required to make your intro post and make yourself a signature banner (AKA sig)! This post will explain signature banner rules.

  1. Your sig must have your username on it
  2. Your team name must be on it
  3. Must not be larger than 300x150 pixels
  4. If you cannot make your own sig, you may ask a mod or another member of your team, and if you are lucky, they will make you one.
Here are example signature banners (made for castleland)


Keep in mind that for this comm, the teams are Rizzoli, Isles & Frost.
