wendelah1: redverse Lincoln and Olivia making faces, text reads "Fringe Exchange Mod" (Fringe Exchange Mod)
[personal profile] wendelah1 posting in [community profile] fringe_exchange
It's that time again. Anyone feeling in a festive mood for Fringe? Since we are getting an earlier start this year, I have moved up all of the dates to avoid conflicting with Yuletide.

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 by the 27th of September.

2. RESPONSES to gift requests are to be posted by December 2, 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. Now! To join the exchange, post your request with the following information:

Name: [DW handle] OR [LJ handle] OR [AO3 account] OR [ff.net handle] OR [...]
Things I'd like: Please request at least three 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 icons or vids too -- we all know the likelihood is low in a small fandom such as this one, but hey. 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? One of the excellent Fringe vidders out there, or an icon-maker with aspirations? One of the folks on tumblr who brighten every Fringe fan's day? As ever, specifics are great so 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 September 27. Since we are getting an earlier start this year, the deadline to default is November 25; with all gifts due in on December 2, that should give us a little extra 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 September 27! NOTE NEW DEADLINE.

We're a small fandom, so please advertise this gift exchange anywhere you think would be appropriate.

Things I'd like:
- literally any flavour of Lincoln & Olivia fic including OT3's, but Olivia/alt!Lincoln and amber!Olivia/amber!Lincoln don't get much love so one of those would be fab.
- a character vid for any/all Lincoln's, as usually Lincoln's are only in vids as part of a ship.
- blue Peter/Olivia/Lincoln threesome. Because I've never seen that done due to the canon progression being so focused after Stowaway when blue!Lincoln first appears.
- won't say no to podficcing, remixing or art of any of my fic
- in general I love gen/friendship/team/ensemble thoughtful character pieces with weird ass events/science, so pretty much just as happy for one of those as anything shippy.

Things I wouldn't like:
- not interested in icons as I already have plenty.
- not that into Peter/Olivia in gen fic.
- re: vid songs, I'm not a fan of anything too ballady or country & western music and anything too pop probably wouldn't be my thing for a Fringe vid unless it's a suitably cracky vid.

What I can do: Predominantly I write het fic but I'm up for gen stories too and slash/femmeslash as long as it's fine to be low rated as I'm not so experienced on slashy smut. Especially love to write Lincoln/Olivia, Lincoln, alt!Olivia, alt!team, redverse but I'd be happy trying my hand at other characters or pairings.

Have been known to make graphics/icons.

Can also vid but not done so for Fringe yet, but if there's someone with a vid request and no one else to give it a go then I'd be happy to try.

Podfic is also a possibility but I have a UK accent so not sure it fits for Fringe fics.

Totally willing to make fanmixes too.

What I can't do:
Can't do original art.
Or very explicit slash fic.
Really not one to do Peter/Olivia fics either unless that's Peter/Olivia/Lincoln.

Pinch hitter? Sure, can pinch hit for fic/podfic/graphics as long as I've finished my own by then.

Things I'd like: For you to write what you like, whether gen, het, or slash. I have a not-secret fondness for Lincolns of all permutations, especially Red. A Red!Lincoln/Blue!Olivia fic or vid would make me cry with joy. Or the fic where Red!Linc survived and he, Liv, Charlie, and Blue!Lincoln figure out their new dynamics. Or Lincoln/anybody fic, including himself. *g* On other notes, anything about the Red'verse team! Any permutation of Astrid/Lincoln or Astrid/Peter would be delightful. And the world always needs more fic featuring Charlie Francis and Nick Lane, any flavor. Threesomes are like catnip and *awesome* in any combination.

Total vanity request: Anything for the FringeTrek verse would be amazing. Or heck, any AU! Werewolves, Pacific Rim fusion, Haven crossover, go for it.

Things I wouldn't like: I read fic for the things the show didn't give me, so P/O isn't my first choice. (Not allergic to it, though.) S5 didn't really rock my world. Heavy angst not so much, either.

What I can do: Gen, het, slash, mostly dialogue and characterization. You probably don't want me writing your epic Peter/Olivia romance, but otherwise I'm flexible.

What I can't do: Graphics or vids, sadly. Big action!fic unlikely as well.

Pinch hitter?: I just realized I'll be out of town the week before the exchange is due, so it's probably unfeasible.

Things I'd like: Fic or a vid or podfic too, as long as it features Olivia/Lincoln. I'm most partial to Our Side's amber versions, but since I think I've written and enjoyed almost all permutations, any of 'em would make me happy. Feel free to add Peter or Astrid or, hey, Charlie <3 to make a threesome; I'm up for OT3s. In fic, I'm fond of first times, slow tumbles, and long walks on the beach. Also genderfuckery, D/s, and sex pollen stories (with all that entails, yes). Vids are best when they're funny and fast. Podfic is always great.

Things I wouldn't like: Physical pain is not my thing (but angst, as appropriate, is). Time jumps or flashbacks in stories. AUs not already folded into the Fringeverse.

What I can do: I can write fic, make fanart, or podfic a short piece -- by no means a master of either, but game for it. Fic-wise, I haven't met a genre I didn't like, although I prefer writing femslash, slash, and het to gen when it comes to Fringe -- these people are just all so attractive! Save for animated icons, I can do most things with 100x100 pixels, and of course desktop backgrounds or any kind of webart are a-go. Podfic should be relatively short, and I note I have an accent (California via Germany, Austria, Georgia the state, and London, UK), but I do love hearing the sound of my own voice, so.

What I can't do: Alas, still not king a vidder.

Pinch hitter? For fanart (or icons, if anyone still needs 'em).

Things I'd like: for the writer to do as they like. Having said that, here are some pointers: I am partial to Peter/Olivia but can be flexible. They do not need to be the end-all be-all of your fic. I would not be averse to Walter and Astrid genfic (say, a missing scene? They're so often in the background), or that Walter and Nina fic that never was. I love the Alt!verse and everything about it. I would especially like that fic were Alt!Liv and Lincoln help each other after the bridge closes. If you throw in some Charlie I will send you cookies and a hug. Anything with Nick Lane is beautiful and full of joy.
I love AUs. I Like fusions and crossovers. If you come up with something you like, please write it. Also, don't feel limited by these pointers :)

Things I wouldn't like: I'm honestly not that into slash. Also not very fond of Amber!Lincoln/Olivia (if you're using Red!Lincoln, I don't mind so much. Especially if said fic happens when Olivia is in the Alt!verse, before or after she realizes she's been brainwashed).

What I can do: I can write, mostly. I can also make graphics and manips, but I can't vouch for their quality. I write mostly het to gen. I can do action fics, and fics where nothing happens just as well.

What I can't do: I'm not very good at vids, and I have no experience with slash, so I wouldn't count on that either.

Pinch hitter? No, Sadly.

Things I'd like: Fic or a vid. Ficwise, I'd really like for you to write a story that you enjoy. I like damn near everything, so have fun. Vidwise, I like character studies and team dynamics.

Specific things that come to mind but should in no way be limiting: A story about Etta, either S5 or an adult Etta after the reset. Red-verse team fic, or something focused on alt-Olivia. A crossover with either Haven or Welcome to Night Vale. Blue-Olivia/Lincoln/Peter schmoopy romance. An Olivia-centric vid to Blindness by Metric.

Things I wouldn't like: Anything that casts alt-Liv in a negative role.

What I can do: Fic, icons, graphics, art. I specialize in crack, AUs, cracky AUs, and minor characters, although I'm up for anything, really.

What I can't do: Vid, podfic.

Pinch hitter?: No, sorry.

E-mail: lidabet at gmail

Things I'd like: Would love anything at all with Astrid (gen, pairing, anything! It's up to you, except please, no Astrid/Walter.) Big fan of Olivia and Lincoln (separately or together, your choice. Not opposed to adding Peter in there either.) Anything from the Brown Betty AU would be amazing, I enjoyed Blue, Red, and Amber. Fic or graphics or vids would all be wonderful!

Things I wouldn't like: I preferred seasons 1-4 to season 5, though if you have a good idea, go ahead. Not interested in podfic. I like Peter as part of the ensemble, but specifically Peter/Olivia-focused romance is not my thing, though references to it as a canon pairing are totally fine.

What I can do: I can write short fic (het/gen/slash, whatever; more or less the same things as my likes, though I'm flexible), or record podfic.

What I can't do: Romantic Peter/Olivia, art, vids, write long plotty fic. Not sure I could do justice to Walter or William Bell-centric fic.

Pinch hitter? Probably!

Hi - I saw the post on LJ and thought I'd join in. I've written a handful of Fringe fic and enjoyed it, and this seems like a fun reason to write another. No worries, though, if you'd prefer no newbies.

Things I'd like
- Pretty much anything that's not horribly violent or negative toward any of the characters, i.e. no bashing.
- Slice of life stories, featuring them (any mix of the universes) in between cases and situations. Like the scene with Altlivia and Walter making eggs and talking.
- Some young Peter and young Olivia would be fun- a world where they grow up friends. Maybe angsty, a sad parting.
- Anything time bending and/or AU, like a 'five ways they meet' fix where Peter/Olivia are living very different lives in each one.
- Astrid taking care of Walter and him pretending to hate being fussed over but loving it.

Things I wouldn't like
-Femslash or death!fic. Pretty much anything else is good with me.

What I can do
- short fic or maybe a 2-3 chapter story.
- Gen, non-explicit het, any rating of Lincoln/Lincoln

What I can't do
- elaborate graphics, though I can do icons

Things I'd like: Anything Red!verse.
Any of the more unusual characters who never get written.
Any combination of Lincoln/Olivia.
Crossover with Lost.
Alternate timelines.
Things I wouldn't like: I'd prefer not S5.

What I can do: Prefer fic, I'll turn my hand to just about any character (and I mean any, ask anyone who knows me from any fandom). can do icons if needed but they'd be pretty basic.
What I can't do: Prefer not vids or any graphics that are too complicated.
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?
Possibly, will see how I feel at the time.

Things I'd like: I'll take anything that ends well, in whatever format you make it :) I love the Peter-Walter dynamic, the Walter-Olivia dynamic, Astrid-Peter, etc. If you are a writer, artist or vidder, it would be neat to see or read a little piece of your headcanon...an explanation for something we just take to be true, or an event that occurred that we never saw, or backstory the writers never gave us. Or, if you've had a plot bunny you've been dying to write, now's your time! Nothing is too weird!

Things I wouldn't like: Lincoln Lee/Altlivia. Baby-fic. Sad endings.

What I can do: I write fic: normal to very weird fic. Het, slash, gen, asexual are all okay. Plot is fine. PWP is more difficult for me, but I'll take a challenge :)

What I can't do: Graphic sex, Lincoln fic (nothing against him, just don't have a handle on his character)

Pinch hitter? I would be happy to pinch-hit as a writer.
