Welcome fellow students to XOXO High, aka the exoberance community! This is an EXO fic fest that focuses on high school or college au.

The fic fest is open year round, but is divided into four "semesters":

  • September - November: Fall Semester

  • December - February: Spring Semester

  • March - May: Summer Semester

  • June - August: Summer Vacation

The semesters are purely for convenience, you don't have to write season-themed fics. Prompting is open all year round, so donate your high school/college prompts today! To sumbit a prompt, use this form. The compiled prompt sheet will not be available to view until the Fall Semester round starts!

---About Prompting

To clarify what is meant by high school/college!au, EXO members must be enrolled in high school or college at some point during the fic and the fic must have a general theme of school life. That being said, you may make your fic whatever you wish for it to be. Your characters must attend school/college but think of that as the backbone to your fic. School life must be an aspect of your fic but doesn't necessarily have to be the focus of it. Let me give you a few examples of some prompts:

  • college!au where kris is the captain of the varsity football team but starts to notice that quiet bookworm kai is coming to his every single game, and he wants to know why

  • high school!au where xiumin is struggling to juggle studies and a part time job at the local pizza store - enter chen, that cute guy from math class who offers to tutor him in return for free pizza

  • college!au where baekhyun has finally gotten into SNU and can't wait to start his first psychology class, but he can't help thinking that his psych professor park chanyeol is extremely attractive

  • college!au where lay is a sophomore and is rooming with a cute senior by the name of kim joonmyun - five years on and they bump into each other at the mall, romance ensues

If you have any questions about what would be acceptable for a prompt, feel free to contact us.


To ensure the fest runs smoothly, please follow these few simple rules!

  • Word count minimum must be 1000words. Of course, though, we encourage you to write more!

  • Underage smut is not permitted - the age of which a student enters high school differs around the world but in many cases it is around the age of 14. Please keep in mind that we do not accept any prompts/fics that include underage sexual activity. Due to the age of consent in South Korea being 13 years of age, we have decided to go by the age of consent in the United Kingdom (which is where both mods live). To clarify, this is Western age 16. Therefore we do not accept smut/mentions of sexual activity between characters who are under the age of 16. Thank you for your understanding!

  • Please don't mention what prompt you have chosen before reveals! Keep your identity a secret!

  • Please try your best not to drop out! We'd be sorry to see you go!


Keep up to date with us by following us on Twitter! We'll be posting information about the first round closer to the date!
