Boobies!

Less than ten days to go now, guys. Don't forget to sign up!

ygodrabble Secret Santa

 

All you have to do is submit your name, the email address where you can be reached, and your preferences for a drabble, all set out according to the form below.

 

Remember, this is a drabble community (the clue is in the name) so don’t go requesting novella-length ideas. Use your intelligence and keep it reasonable. That’s not to say the author of your fic can’t extend it later on if they want, but be realistic in your requests.

 

Please remember to keep a good balance between no detail and overwhelming detail when making your request. Too little can leave the writer worried about what you'll like, but too much can be stifling for creativity

 

REMEMBER THAT IF YOU SIGN UP, YOU ARE COMMITTING YOURSELF TO GIVE AS WELL AS RECEIVE! YOU CANNOT REQUEST A DRABBLE UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO WRITE ONE FOR SOMEONE ELSE IN EXCHANGE!

The Entry Form (i.e. the bit that ensures you won’t be allowed to participate unless you fill it in)! Please provide at least three options for each part, to give the best chance of matching your request to an author. When you have filled in your entry, put it in a comment to this post. All comments will be screened
.


Your Name:
Email Address:
Character(s) you would like:
Pairing(s) you would like
Elements you would love to have in your gift:

Elements you absolutelyx do not want in your gift:
What are you willing to write?

Anything you won’t write?

Additional Notes (anything not covered here already)?
Are you willing to pinch-hit (write a second story if someone is forced to drop out and cannot complete their assignment)?



The Request List will be CLOSED on December 1st 2010. I'll send you your recipient's request via EMAIL (this is why it is IMPORTANT) so PLEASE check your inbox. If there are any problems, please PM me.

Secret Santa will run from Dec 1st 2010 to Dec 23rd 2010.  When you have written your drabble, send your completed assignments to me via
EMAIL so I can combine all of them into one ENORMOUS post on Christmas Day.

 

IF YOU CAN’T FULFIL YOUR ASSIGNMENT, FOR WHATEVER REASON, LET ME KNOW ASAP SO I CAN ALLOCATE A NEW FICCER.

This also means: If you don’t write your gift-fic, YOU WILL NOT BE GETTING YOUR PRESENT. It's only fair.

Normal weekly challenges will continue to run as well.

 

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, DO NOT PUT THEM IN YOUR REQUEST COMMENT. PUT THEM IN A SEPARATE COMMENT. I'll unscreen these comments so others can see if they have the same queries.

above all, enjoy yourselves, and have a great time!

I love the idea of a drabble secret santa, it's definitely something extra I can slip onto my plate. But what exactly is the word count maximum we're looking at? Still the same 600?

Due to quibbles from several corners over this one, I'll say word count is up to the individual ficcer's discretion. In other words, it's up to you and the time available to you whether you (can) produce a drabble or something longer. Do what you feel up to. Nobody can ask any more of anyone else than that. ^_^
