Hey there! You've reached shootingbees, a community dedicated to Smellerbee and Longshot, two relatively minor characters from the popular American cartoon, Avatar: the Last Airbender.

Smellerbee is a young woman (often mistaken for a boy) with a rough personality, bluntly honest and given to strong emotion. Longshot, her companion, is a young man of few (if any) words and a constant calm, gifted with sharp eyes and a keen mind. Together, they fight crime!

You might want to check out the guidelines before posting, so:

Stuff You Need To Know

    1) Stay on-topic.

  • Do post about Smellerbee, Longshot, and their relationship (be it platonic or romantic).
  • Don't post about other characters or pairings, unless your post deals with Smellerbee, Longshot, and/or the Freedom Fighters in general. Jet-centric discussions will be allowed, but please remember that this is a community for Smellerbee and Longshot.
  • Fanworks must focus on Smellerbee and/or Longshot, or at least have one (but preferably both) in prominent roles. Fic focusing on Jet with Smellerbee and Longshot in strong supporting roles is cool; fic focusing on Jet with Smellerbee and Longshot in background roles is not. Smellerbee/Longshot is, of course, excellent and highly encouraged.

    2) Play cool with others.

  • Treat other members (and anyone else who comes wandering in) with respect. Not everyone will share your opinions.
  • Please refrain from bashing Smellerbee, Longshot, and/or Smellerbee/Longshot. If you don't enjoy them or their relationship, you likely won't enjoy this community either.
  • For those of you who do like Smellerbee and Longshot (and their relationship), please refrain from bashing other characters and pairings. We're here to celebrate Smellerbee and Longshot, not to rant about Zhao and Appa.

    3) Please remember to lj-cut. This is a public community, not your personal journal.

    The following should be lj-cut at all times:

  • Any posts of length, be they discussion, recap, or fanwork-related.
  • Fanfic exceeding 100 words.
  • Fanart. A small thumbnail outside an lj-cut will be allowed.
  • Icons. You may have three icons outside an lj-cut to provide a sampler.
  • Screencaps. Small thumbnails will be allowed, but please do not exceed more than three outside an lj-cut.

    A good rule of thumb: anything over 500 words most likely should be lj-cut.

    If you don't know how to make an lj-cut, this should help. :)

    4) When posting fanworks, observe the following:

  • Subject Line: Note the type of fanwork (fic / art / etc.) and the title (if it has one).
  • Post: Note your name and the title (again, if it has one).
  • Warn for spoilers and questionable content. If it isn't safe for work, make a note of it where it can be easily seen.
  • If you're posting an AMV, please note the name of the song as well as the individual or group performing the song.
  • All of the above information should be noted outside any lj-cuts.

    This information helps the mod with tagging and archiving, which makes it easier for you to find what you want in the community.

    5) Post! We'd love to hear from you. :)

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the mod at memlu(at)livejournal(dot)com or at her personal journal (memlu). (She can also be reached on AIM at londontux, though you should probably try to reach her through e-mail or at her lj first.)

Have fun!
