tag exchange

(Anonymous)
(bless you heavensqueen for this post)

I think I bit off more than I can chew with this fic idea. It feels like a longfic that I don't have enough time to write. :(

Re: tag exchange

(Anonymous)
I hear you. I really wish the writing time were longer.

I know what trope I want to write (I might throw in another one, too), but I can't even figure out which two characters should do the trope. The ones she listed as her three favorites are ones I can't write. She sort of says she loves everyone but I can't tell how much she means that. It's a big universe; if I took that too literally, I could end up writing a pairing she doesn't care about.

What other exchanges are there?

(Anonymous)
Okay, so what other exchanges are there that have not closed sign ups yet that we could still sign up for?

YT got a really early jump this year, so some other stuff might still be open. Tell me what you've found!

*grabby hands*

Re: What other exchanges are there?

(Anonymous)
It's not an exchange, but intoabar (intoabar.livejournal.com ) sign-ups are still open?

I think the Marvel Ladies sign-ups might still be open too: http://mml-exchange.livejournal.com/

fandom_stocking

(Anonymous)
Anyone know if this is running this year? I had fun writing treats for people last year (except for one person who never acknowledged any of their gifts, ugh) and kind of want to put up a stocking of my own this year.

Re: fandom_stocking

(Anonymous)
Yup, it's running. Or at least the mod said recently that she plans to run it again. Sign-ups are scheduled to take place during November.

Re: fandom_stocking (Anonymous) Expand
Signed up for an exchange that I'm really excited about, but all I have from my recip is the bare bones of what we matched on: (characters, pairing) and a max rating... and that's it. Perusal of their blog shows they're a bit of a BNF... who has blogged about this fandom maybe twice in the last 6 months and written no easily findable request letter. O_o;;;

...that's not a whole lot to go on and it's stressing me out a bit. -.-;;;

intoabar

(Anonymous)
Who else is doing Into a Bar? My character/fandoms are guaranteed to result in something very entertaining to write.

Re: intoabar

(Anonymous)
\o

I do not know why I did this to myself, but a 500 crack break seems like it might be nice admit all the other sign-up/exchange fics I am writing right now.

Dream Exchange?

(Anonymous)
What kind of exchange would you love to see?

I'd like something focused entirely on 5 Minute Fandoms myself.

Re: Dream Exchange?

(Anonymous)
A 5 Minute fandom one, the comic one meme was talking about, the Elementary one someone was talking about somewhere else, more exchanges that allowed art as well. IDK

NCIS ficathon

(Anonymous)
My beta seriously told me that my fic is perfect.

...holy crap, I hope my recipient likes it.

I have like 12 hours to write a pinch hit for something but all week my cat has been waking me up an hour before my alarm goes off and I am SO TIRED and just want to sleep, ugh. I think I'm going to have to nap even though it's 10PM because I just can't concentrate on anything.

Kushiel's Legacy Midwinter Masque

(Anonymous)
Signups for the 1st ever Kushiel's Legacy holiday fic and art exchange are now open through November 15th, with stories due December 15th, just slightly ahead of Yuletide. You know, for all your bdsm and kink related holiday fanwork needs...though we won't judge you if you want gen or vanilla fic. Love as thou wilt and all...

you can find a link to the signups here at AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/Midwinter_Masque_2013/profile

Oh holy polly

(Anonymous)
I purposefully left my this character out of my offer so I wouldn't get this threesome

Sigh

But thanks! I guess i have to write this shitty threesome anyway



Re: Oh holy polly

(Anonymous)
None of the person's other options work for you? That sucks though.

I got a threesome that I love, I'm just trying to figure out how to write it. Especially considering the person and I apparently see different people as the connecting points.

Stocking up any prompts, guys? Hoping to avoid fic from Certain People?

Is it definitely running?

Motivation not Cooperating with Deadlines

(Anonymous)
I have tons of inspiration and motivation for a fic that is due in late December, and absolutely nothing for a fic that's due at the end of this month.

Anyone else getting inspired in all the wrong ways?

Re: Motivation not Cooperating with Deadlines

(Anonymous)
Me too. I have lots of ideas and inspiration for fics other than those I committed to writing for exchanges and fests.

FANDOM STOCKING IS A GO!!!!

(Anonymous)
http://fandom-stocking.dreamwidth.org/361511.html#cutid2

Re: FANDOM STOCKING IS A GO!!!!

(Anonymous)
I'm frustrated by the people who list dozens of fandoms but only mention particulars for one or two fandoms. It's abundantly clear that they really only care about getting fic in those one or two fandoms.


Stories apparently went live today in the exchange (I've never gotten an email with a link to mine, so don't know what's up there), but AO3 has been screwed up all afternoon. Can't read the stores, because you can't get to them. Anything with a filter or search involved in the page brings up an error page. AO3 have been working on the problem for the last 7 hours or so, according to their Twitter feed.

This is referencing the Teen Wolf Holidays 2013 (http://archiveofourown.org/collections/tw_holidays2013/works) exchange. The first time I posted it locked up and I had start over, and forgot the damn subject line the second time.

Subtlety backfired

(Anonymous)
I wrote a story in first-person for an anon fest, where the intention is to fool the audience into believing that the narrator is someone else than they actually are. (Let's say there are two Bobs in this fandom, and I'm setting it up to make you think Robert's the narrator, but at the end the real Robert shows up to imply it was Bobby all along.) I labeled the story as about Alice and Bob, but the mod has tagged it as Alice and Robert. I could maybe bring this up, I could maybe ask mod to tag as "undisclosed characters" as well because Robert does technically have a line or two, or I guess I could just ignore it because my attempts at subtlety failed. :/

new GOT/ASOIAF exchange

(Anonymous)
http://smutty-westeros.livejournal.com/

Just posted for an assignment I didn't really enjoy. And I still don't like the title I came up with, but I guess I have a week to come up with something else.

I finished one like two weeks late, but it turned out awesome! :D

http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2013/works/1100359

WAIT, SERIOUSLY? So, Pete Wentz/Patrick Stump is an elegible Yule fandom now? Fallout fucking Boy (starring in the music video universe as... themselves)???

Oh come fucking on. This is worse than Clint/Coulson.

my own stupid angst

(Anonymous)
So there's this exchange, and it's not the largest community, not super small but nowhere near as big as yuletide, and there's another fan who... we hooked up, they were shitty to me, it sucks, no one else in the fandom knows because they are little bit of a BNF and I don't want to look like I'm causing drama, it's over and there's nothing to do about it, i sorta doubt it will happen to anyone else given what i know of them?

ANYWAY I really fucking don't want to comment on something they made and then find out after reveals i was all "omg this is so awesome you rock" so i'm considering not commenting on *anything*. Which feels insane, but I know I'd feel a bit sick if it happened. And they tend to make a lot of treats, so the odds are high.

Basically, am I being insane? I think I'll do it anyway, even if some of my friends might notice? I guess this means no recs. Well, I could rec locked in my journal and they'd never see?

Anyone ever dealt with shit like this? Advice appreciated. But just writing this out has been nice because I never talk about this to any fandom friends and only a little bit to nonfannish friends. I just feel so stupid about the whole thing.

Re: my own stupid angst

(Anonymous)
You could always just comment after the authors are revealed so you can avoid this person. Better than not commenting at all, and you get to avoid leaving a squee comment on something the person wrote.

Fandom_stocking noob question

(Anonymous)
I get the impression from comments here and on the main coal post that f_s has an AO3 collection. Is that the way for fic to be posted, or is commentfic okay? What if you're not sure of the AO3 name for the recipient? Or is the idea to add it to the collection without a recip? Help?

Re: Fandom_stocking noob question

(Anonymous)
Comment fic is totally okay! The AO3 collection is there if you want to use it. Your story may get a little more attention from others if it's posted to the AO3 in that collection. If you don't know their AO3 name to gift it to them, you should still be able to post to the collection without naming a recip. Just provide the link in the comment at their stocking post.

The stories are anonymous now and show as an anon gift in their gifts, just like Yuletide stories, and will show when they reveal all the stockings on the 6th.
