Anyone participating? How's the writing going?

I finished mine! Now I'm working on a treat.

I have a page of really meh writing with a lot of useless description of setting and flat dialogue, and another page of notes.

I PROMISE IT WILL GET BETTER ;__;

I have the last scene written! I just... have nothing else yet, haha. My recip was pretty vague about her wants & prompts, and it basically amounted to "hot sex please!" for the fandom we matched on. The only porn I've ever written has been m/m, so I'm just feeling intimidated. I have the aftermath of the sex written, but nothing else. Hopefully the sex itself will go all right - maybe I need to canon review a second time to get up my courage.

My recip has never commented on previous gift fics, plus didn't bother leaving any optional details or a letter, so I'm feeling pretty unenthusiastic about the whole thing. I know the answer is just to write the best fic of my life featuring all my own kinks and headcanon and everything and if they don't like it then tough, but that's really not why I sign up for these things :(

(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. :(

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.

On the off-chance you are talking about me/Marvel 616, I really do mean I love everyone and I'd love to read any characters/pairings, even if it's not something I actively ship (as long as it's also not something I mentioned not shipping)!

My assignment may have gotten away from me? I'm hoping to have it done by this Saturday, so I've still got two weeks force my friends to beta it/do edits.

I can't really start my work on YT beyond sketching ideas for it until I get this thing done, so I'm trying to work as much as I can on it.

You too?

I've had to change from Fandom A to Fandom B entirely just because my plot bunny spanned like two and a half season of Fandom A. Good news is I was watching Fandom B anyway, and now I'm almost finished to do some relationship fic that can be wrapped up in 2k or so.

If this is me and the MCU or SHIELD, please don't stress yourself out.

1) I tried to touch on my thoughts on everyone, but I am not much of an OTP girl anyway.
2) Pairings are SO not as important as tropes in this challenge.
3) I will read basically anything if it hits one of my favorite tropes.

♥ ♥ I know you'll do great! Seriously, if you have 1000+ words on a concept that made me grin when I selected it (aka all of them) then you will have fulfilled your requirements and made my heart glad!

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!

I am not terribly enthusiastic with what I'm writing for a lot of reasons and was thinking about defaulting, but I've been wanting to write this fandom/pairing for a while and I really like the idea of the exchange, so I'm going to just do it anyway.

I want to keep it a manageable length- no more than 5k or so- but looking at the outline I've got going I'm mildly terrified it will want to be a lot longer than that. Ugh ):

Re: What other exchanges are there?

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/

I got someone I wrote a Yuletide treat for in the past, so I'm caught in-between "I have no idea what to write them because we share so many fandoms and pairings" and "yes, you do, you wrote for them before and they liked it."
