Right, proles. Pin back your lugholes and listen.
Because, apparently they can’t cope without me, the bunch of inadequates that run this place have asked me if I would help them again to organise the holiday celebrations here because they're all too bone idle to do the bloody job themselves.
So here we go. It's Crowley’s Christmas Fic Exchange mark III!
And by Christmas, I mean all the big mid-winter holidays which you lot feel the need to celebrate - you know, Christmas, Hanukkah, Yule, Kwanzaa ... what-sodding-ever. I don't care what you celebrate, I’m just happy to enter into whatever arrangements are necessary to help you receive the gift you most want in this sorry little shindig. Yeah, I know. The indignities I suffer for a few stupid souls …
So, here's how it works:
Prompting will begin NOW and run for one week until midnight on Tuesday 3rd December wherever you are in the world. Post your prompts in the comments below; remember the spirit of this place (no I don't mean a bottle of Craig), I mean the spirit of fun and fluff and sunshine.
Excuse me while I go and puke rainbows!
Submit three to five prompts which should be fics or art YOU would love to receive. Prompts can be gen or slash and can be as general or as specific as you like. Prompts don't have to be Christmas/holiday related, but, I mean, c'mon - it's a holiday fic exchange; I’m working my perfecty-formed arse off to get this bleeding hoedown organised - at least TRY to make a sodding effort and include at least one holiday related prompt.
Feel free to give guidance on your preferences too; I want to make sure you get exactly what you want so I can
justify nabbing your souls make you happy. Therefore, for instance you might say:
Favourite Character: Crowley
Least favourite character: That smug git, Dean
But anyway, I digress ...
Remember, this is an exchange, so by prompting, you are also signing up to produce something for someone else. You know, a bit like a Crossroads deal, only far more fun - you get your wish, I get your soul; but without all the waiting ten years bollocks.
One more thing I need to add. That dopey bint Dizzo has the organisational skills of a peanut, and so time is of the essence. Therefore claiming of prompts will begin on Wednesday 4th December, and will be open only to people who have submitted prompts.
Claiming will continue for one week, (or until all prompts are claimed). I'll put up a separate post for claims, because we’ll wait until Hell freezes over – and I’ll never let that happen - before Dizzo gets her act together and does it.
Also, because we're running to a tight time schedule, the minimum word count for fic will be 750 words.
You can start producing your
illiterate tripe masterpiece as soon as your claim has been granted and fics/art willl be due back to me at my email address email@example.com Monday 23rd /Tuesday 24th December. That gives you up to three weeks to do your stuff (the sooner you claim, the more time you get).
Fic and Art will be posted at the comm by me from 25th December - 6th January (in other words, the 12 days of Christmas.) What can I say? I'm just a traditionalist!
So that's it. Get prompting; get your wish granted, and
sell your miserable soul to me. It only takes one kiss, and I’ve got Tictacs grant somebody else a little holiday magic.
