Secret Santa Fic Exchange 2016

Welcome to the fourth Secret Santa Fic Exchange, for those who love to read, write and exchange Sherlock fan fiction. 

Everyone is welcome, no matter what their prefered pairings, settings or ratings are.

How does the fic exchange work?
It's a Secret Santa gift swap. Everyone who participates will be secretly assigned a recipient, and will write a story (or poem if you like) fulfilling their prompts. In return you will receive a story written to your own prompt, composed by another participant (not necessarily the person you are writing for). You will send your finished stories to me, and I will post them in a separate thread with the name of the recipient only, so that initially no one will know who wrote which story. The authors will be revealed at a later date after all the stories have been posted.

So, who would like to join?
Send me a PM before October 1st. You will get a questionnaire telling me what you would like to write about (and what not) and what you would like the fic written for you to be about (and what not). You can also include a prompt if you like, or give a heading or key words.

I'll match wishes and offers as well as possible and send you your tasks around the beginning of October.

You can be as creative as you like! The minimum story length (prose) is 221 words. The maximum word count for stories is 10,000 but don't feel that you have to write this much! Poems can be any length the author wishes. The fics should be rated General Audience or Teens and up, nothing explicit. You don't have to be an experienced writer and definitely not a native speaker. The only condition for taking part is that you are willing to read all other fics that will be posted. Of course, it is perfectly fine if you won't manage to read all the fics but if you rule out certain topics (like good!Mary or Johnlock) completely, this exchange is not the right place for you. 

I am very excited about it already and hope there will be lots of you joining, like always!

Re: Secret Santa Fic Exchange 2016

I am considering taking part this time... but I'll have to think it over before I promise too much.

It sounds like a lot of fun!

That's true. And all participants are supportive if you need help or more time or simply an opinion.

Thanks girls! I am certainly tempted! I just wonder where my head will be... and I hate committing to something that I can't finish

Re: Secret Santa Fic Exchange 2016

[sigh]  I would love to participate again, but since that would mean having to read slash, I will have to decline this time.

Just to be perfectly clear for newbies: no fic will be explicit, but there will be fics with m/m or f/f pairings of course, just as there will be Warstan or Sherlolly fics.

Re: Secret Santa Fic Exchange 2016

I would love to read Sherlolly, simply because we never had it before.

Or did  we have one already?

Re: Secret Santa Fic Exchange 2016

Not sure about that. I think we usually have no relationship or Johnlock stories.

Re: Secret Santa Fic Exchange 2016

It´s that part of the yea already, huh? Time flies like crazy....

Count me in. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png


-----------------------------------

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Secret Santa Fic Exchange 2016

Yay! Welcome aboard. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


I guess you have noticed  by now that I'm sending out questionnairs already. I felt like there is no need to wait, with you all being so enthusiastic. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


Of course I will only start matching after the time for applications is over and I got the last questionnaire. Whenever somebody joins, they will receive the questionnaire as asap as possible.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
