About Spun Sugar

spun su·gar (noun) a mass of fluffy cotton candy.Sucrose's very name means sugar and her element is anemo, meaning... Sucrose (sugar) + anemo (air) = spun sugar!A sweet, fluffy treat!Known as the Harmless Sweetie of Mondstadt, Sucrose also has her own sweet tooth and it seemed only fitting to have an event based around her!Spun Sugar as a whole is centered around Sucrose but also the genre fluff to match the texture of cotton candy. Spun sugar comes in flavors, though, so a little bit of hurt or spice is alright as long as the piece is overall sweet!Writers will be asked to write a piece and will be paired with an artist who will prepare a drawing to accompany said piece.


During applications, writers will be asked to provide a brief summary of the fic they plan to write. Although it does not have to be a final idea, it is part of what will be judged on your application, and accepted entrants will have to run new ideas through the mod team to make sure they fit the theme of this anthology.Those who are accepted through the application process will have their summaries sent to the discord for artists to look through. Artists who are accepted will be given access to the anonymous bank of fic summaries, and they will select fics that they would be interested in creating content for. Once the summaries are posted, artists will have to look over all the summaries and select a top 3 in order of preference to work with.
The mods will match and pair artists and writers on a roughly first come first serve basis - meaning the sooner you submit your choices the more likely it is that you will receive one of your top 3 picks.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Be aware that all page artists will be required to include a background with their finished piece for the bang. It can be simplified, but we ask that it is more than blank/solid color.
