Yuletide!
« on: October 15, 2012, 10:10:06 PM »
Yuletide! A massive rare fandoms fanfic exchange for the holidays! Lots of fun! Signups are now open! (they do say you have to be 18 to join in, though D:)

RAYEARTH IS A FANDOM THIS YEAR! (with characters-you-can-specify of Umi, Fuu, Ferio, Eagle, and Caldina. Which means I'm not the only person who nominated it, because you only get to put four characters up each. XD I know it's a bit of a random selection, but I plan on asking for any and offering any too, and that range seemed to give scope?)

I took part last year and got two fics - one Umi/Fuu/Hikaru thing and one Umi-crossed-with-Madoka-Magica as an extra, hee. You request three-four fandoms, 0-4 characters, and offer to write in four or more fandoms offering 2-8 or any of the characters. People are matched, and everyone writes a 1000 word (as a minimum, you can write more. Which is fortunate for me. XD) story in one of the fandoms they offered - and everyone gets at least one 1000 word story. Sometimes people have to drop out, of course, but there's a system of pinch hitters who write for people who still need a story. And when everyone has that story, the prompts go live and people can write extras! You're only guarenteed a story with fandom and characters you requested, but you can also add in optional details about what you like or don't like, ideas you'd love to see explored, etc etc, which usually your writer will do their best to take into account. (You can also write as much as you like, because you can add a link to a blog post or something in the optional details and ramble at length. ^^)

I had a lot of fun last year! The main faq with links to the lj comms and everything is here; maybe think about joining up?

now I am getting down off my soapbox. XDD

(PSST, SUZ, ANIMORPHS IS ALSO A FANDOM THIS YEAR. XDD)

I don't fic for enough fandoms, and I am also horrible about writing requests, so I would likely be out when it comes to this. 

I keep wanting to write some Fuu/Ferio or something, but I never can seem to get a good idea going.   Hm....

Yep!

(My fandoms are, uh, as varied as my music tastes - I think I'm going to offer about 8 this year, because I'm being good and keeping it to things I'd be really excited to write, but I've got at least a dozen I'll look at the prompts for whether I write them or not... I wrote Ballykissangel and Cadfael last year XD. I am terrified of writing requests but I really like it at the same time? Plus, it forces me to finish something...)

You can poke about the requests when they go live and write extras even if you aren't signed up, too. ^^

*raises hand* I like animmorphs too!
