    The holidays are coming up quick and, naturally, our thoughts all turn to the more important questions in life:

    What's this holiday spirit they're always talking about?

    How do I tactfully get rid of Mom's fruitcake?

    Do I really have to sit next to Aunt Mary at Thanksgiving? She smells weird!


    Okay, so maybe not those important questions, but we know that we're always trying to figure out what to get for the special people in our lives.

    We, AnakinsFavorite and DarthIshtar, would like to put forth the theory that the fanfic writers and readers of boards.theforce.net constitute another group of the "special people in our lives." On the other hand, we know that sometimes it's more fun to try new things and benefit someone we don't know very well.

    With that in mind, we'd like to set up a Sithly Secret Santa Storygiving Exchange.

    What does this Exchange entail?

    Basically, all people who are interested shall PM AnakinsFavorite or DarthIshtar depending on what era they work in most. Specifications can be made (Example: I want a Saga fic, with purple Ewoks and orange Gungans getting drunk). After collecting all of the PM's, we shall randomly draw names and PM you back with a person you are to write the fanfiction for.

    Anyone who wishes may be involved but must follow these Guidelines:
    1) All [link=http://boards.theforce.net/ASP/tos.asp]TOS Rules[/link] must be followed.
    2) The identity of the person you are writing for must remain a strict secret.
    3) To be included in this exchange you must PM the following host with your name:
    AnakinsFavorite- Before the Saga
    DarthIshtar- The Saga and Beyond the Saga.
    The Message Subject for the PM should say the following: Secret Santa Exchange
    4) If, for any reason you are unable to complete this, you are to PM the person in charge of your era.
    5) Upon posting your gift, the title must include the following words: Gift For (Name)

    Is this like a Dare Challenge?

    In a way, yes, but this is meant to be more fun than challenging (hopefully). This is just to get us all in the holiday spirit and show each other that we view this forum as a big, happy family.

    All participants are to have submitted their PM's to the corresponding host by midnight November 30th. The names shall be passed out by December 5th and the gifts are to be posted by December 25th.

    If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, do not hesitate to PM [link=http://boards.theforce.net/ASP/pm_send.asp?usr=344920]DarthIshtar[/link] or [link=http://boards.theforce.net/ASP/pm_send.asp?usr=1245279]AnakinsFavorite[/link].

    Your Hosts,
    @};- AnakinsFavorite and DarthIshtar@};-

    Is this similar to the "I Dare You" challenge, in that we get a name and a plot bunny?

    No, it's not like the I Dare You challenge. It's more like someone is assigned to you and they want a Saga fic, with purple Ewoks and orange Gungans getting drunk... Or something like that. Anyway, you'd write something for them.

    You'll be getting lingerie-clad Ewoks under your Christmas trees. That's the only rule. ;)
