It's that time again. I hope everyone is feeling in a festive mood for Fringe
The Fringe Gift Exchange is open to fanfic, podfic, fanart, and fanvids; on the fic side, anything goes— all we ask for is a minimum word count of 750, that kinks are tagged, and warnings included.
1. To SIGN UP, all you need to do is add a comment to this very post containing your request and what you're offering to create by October 1.
2. RESPONSES to gift requests are to be posted by December 3, in a separate entry to this community, preferably by your Dreamwidth (or validated open id) sock of choice. The entries will go into a moderation queue until the reveal. All entries will be unveiled by the mods at the same time once every participant has a gift.
3. If you don't want to make a sock journal, that's not a problem. Just let one of the mods know ahead of time. We will put up a separate entry for you to post your gift as an anonymous comment.
4. To join the exchange, post a comment with the following information:Name:
[DW handle] OR [LJ handle] OR [AO3 account] OR [ff.net handle] OR [...]E-mail:Things I'd like:
Please request at least three different things here...but ultimately feel free to add as many things as you'd like at this point. Doesn't mean you'll get them all, but there's no harm in asking, and it ensures you get a great Secret Santa match. If you'd like a specific pairing or character, then speak now or forever hold thy peace. Don't forget to ask for podfic, art, icons and vids too—we all know the likelihood is low in a small fandom such as this one, but hey, it's worth a shot! Things I wouldn't like:
If there's anything you wouldn't like to receive (pairing in a fic, French electropop for your vid, bright-green textures in your icons) then here's the place to mention it. Without character-, pairing-, or kink-bashing, of course.What I can do:
Are you great at a certain genre (gen, het, slash)? Are you the specialist for writing specific character/s or pairing/s? Do you make icons and graphics? Are you a pod-ficcer? Are you one of the excellent Fringe vidders out there, or an artist with aspirations? As ever, specifics will help us ensure your match brings you tears of happiness instead of, you know, the opposite.What I can't do:
If there's anything you feel you can't do, then please say so here. Same disclaimer as above applies.Pinch hitter?
In the event of someone not being able to complete their gift, are you willing to be a stand-in writer, pod-ficcer, artist, or vidder?
The deadline to sign up is October 1. The deadline to default is November 26; with all gifts due in on December 3, that should give us a time to organize a pinch hitter. Obviously, the sooner we know you can't do it, the easier that task will be. If the assignment you received is not what you signed up to do, let us know that as soon as possible. We're doing the matching by hand so that shouldn't be an issue. Feel free to snag one of these Fringe Exchange icons:
Or make your own!
A Fringe gift exchange for the holidays, signups end October 1!
We're a small fandom, so please advertise this gift exchange anywhere you think would be appropriate: personal journals, Twitter, Tumblr, forums, at Fringe communities at home and abroad.
