    Here we are again. Yep, it's that time of year once again where you get to open a gift that you know you want, (none of that returning gifts here!) and give a gift you're pretty sure someone is going to love!



    Welcome to the 9th Annual Winter Holiday Fic-Gift Exchange
    Holy moly, has it really been 9 years? Wow!



    If you are new around these parts this is what I guess could be considered a tradition here in SW fanfic where you get to pick the story you want written and write a story for someone else, a story they want to see written. It's a fun way to give something to a fellow fanficcer and get something in return.



    To Participate:

    Send me, mavjade, a PM with:
    1. Three things you would like in your fic-gift
    2. Something you don't want in your fic-gift
    3. The main characters you want in your fic-gift (Please no more than three)
    4. The era in which your fic-gift should take place
    5. The era(s) for which you would like to write

    Example PM:
    I want a story in Beyond with​
    1. a stolen kiss​
    2. an accident that almost happens​
    3. a celebration​
    I do not want: anyone dying​
    Characters: Corran, Mirax, and Jysella​
    I would like to write in Beyond or Saga​




    It is very difficult to trade fic-gift requests once they have all been sent out, so please think carefully about what era's you agree to write in. If there is a character(s) you refuse to write, let me know but please do so sparingly





    After I've sent my request, what happens?

    After the deadline for requests, I will send you someone's request and you will write for them. (It sometimes take a day or two to organize, I'll state in the thread when everyone should have their stories to write.)
    Your request will be sent to someone to write. Your request will not necessarily be given to the person for whom you are writing but it is possible that will happen.

    You will then write the fic that the person has requested doing your best to keep it a secret from them until you post. If you have a question about something in the request, send your question to mavjade and I will ask the person for you and get your answer ASAP.

    When you've finished writing, you post the fic-gift in the story boards for the person to 'open' and read.






    Deadlines/Posting:


    Fic-Gift request: Need to be PM'd to mavjade by 7am PST Tuesday December 1st


    Final Deadline for your fic-gift to be posted: 11:59pm PST Sunday January 3rd 2016


    When you post your fic-gift, please put in the title "Fic-gift for ___" and then put a link and who it is for here in this thread.

    If you have not posted your fic-gift approximately two weeks before it is due, you will receive a PM from me just checking in and giving you a reminder.





    FAQ

    Can I include more than three things in my request? Less than three?
    Yes. You may include more than three things that you want, but the author is only required to use three of them. If you put more than three, the author is allowed to pick which three (or more) that they use.
    You may also request less than three things, it just means the writer has more control over what happens.


    Does my request have to be holiday related?
    No. This is whatever you want, it doesn't have to have anything to do with a holiday unless you want it to.


    Can I request a fic-gift with my Original Character?
    You may but if your request has an Original Character in it, please provide a link to stories where someone can read your OC and get an idea of the character. If you are feeling particularly helpful to your fellow writer, a character description and some character traits would be appreciated. But do realize the person writing your fic may not have read your OC (and is not required to do so) so they may not get the character the way you see them


    Can I request characters from Non-Star Wars randoms? Is this open to NSWFF?
    Sorry, no. It's too hard to know who would know which characters in the many, many fandoms other than Star Wars and it's not fair to make someone write in a universe they may know nothing about. At least sticking to Star Wars, they know the universe.


    How creative can I be with the fic-gift?
    When you are writing, feel free to be as creative as you want, just remember to include at least the three things for which your fic-gift recipient asked and the characters they ask to be included.


    I'm not going to be able to finish my fic-gift, what should I do?
    If you find that you will not be able to finish your fic-gift before the deadline for whatever reason, please let me know as soon as possible! That way I can find someone else to write the fic-gift. We want everyone to receive one.


    I'm finished with my fic-gift. Can I help?
    Yes! I can always use a pinch writer to write a fix-gift that someone can't fulfill. Please let me know if you'd be willing to write another fic-gift.


    Can I write a multi-chapter fic?
    Sure! But please try to include the elements requested before the deadline.




    If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or post in this thread. Also, feel free to post if you plan on participating in this thread, but you must PM your request to actually participate.


    Happy Winter Holidays! Whatever you may celebrate I hope it is joyous!


    ~ Mav

    Still want to participate?
    There have been a few people who missed the deadline that have PMed me. If anyone else wants to join in, let me know very soon (by say, 5pm PST tomorrow December 2nd) and we'll make it work... I just might not be able to guarantee you'll get to write in the era you want to.
