Genshin Halloweek

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is this event?
This event is a special Halloween-themed creative event for Genshin Impact. The goal is to inspire content creators and fans of the game to create Halloween-themed content for Halloween!

There will be creative prompts provided for every day of the week, and artists, writers and content creators of all kinds will be invited to share content following those prompts during the event week.

No signing up is required and everyone can participate!

2. Do I have to create content for every day of the week?
Not at all! Every day of the week is optional, and you can use as many or as few prompts for every day as you want. You can mix and match prompts for the same day, or do something outside of the prompts for the free day!

3. Is NSFW content allowed?
Yes! Please note that all NSFW content has to be hosted externally (on websites such as pixiv, poipiku or Privatter) with SFW previews only.

Our tagging system on Twitter will be as follows:
#GIHalloweekTreat for SFW content;
#GIHalloweekTrick for any NSFW content;
#GIHalloweekTerror for dark, horror, “dead dove” content.

4. Is dark, creepy, “dead dove” or otherwise unsavoury content allowed in the event?
Yes, it is! However, in order to make sure that everyone can have a safe and comfortable experience viewing the works for the event week, we require that the following tropes and elements be tagged with #GIHalloweekTerror:

  • Dubcon, rape/noncon

  • Drugging, drunkenness (if in a work rated M or E)

  • Hypnosis, somnophilia and mind control

  • Psychological horror

  • Predator/prey kink and feral sex

  • Blood, bloodplay, knifeplay, breathplay

  • Torture, amputation, gore, body horror, any kind of severe bodily harm

  • Murder, snuff, necrophilia

  • Cannibalism, vore

  • Bestiality

  • Confirmed incest

Additionally, we require to include trigger warnings for those elements on the site where the work is hosted (Privatter, Poipiku, AO3, etc.).

Any kind of graphic depiction of violence must feature the #GIHalloweekTerror tag, even if it is mild compared to some of the tropes included in the list above.

Please note that Diluc/Kaeya is not considered incest by default, but in order to allow people who don't want to see this ship to filter it out, we require that the #Kaeluc or the #Luckae hashtag be included in your tweet, even if they are a background ship. If you represent them as brothers, please make sure to include the #GIHalloweekTerror tag.

Furthermore, please note that sexually explicit content featuring characters with the child model (such as Klee, Diona, Qiqi, Sayu, etc. and Paimon), underage content, and lolicon/shotacon are not allowed in this event.

5. What if I can't post during the event week?
We will continue retweeting works shared with the event tags for 2 weeks after the event, so don't worry if you can't finish on time!

6. I have more questions. Where can I ask them?
You can contact us on our Curious Cat or send us a DM on Twitter!
