    [hl=white]Welcome to the Winter Holiday Fic-gift Exchange Challenge!![/hl]

    It is that time of year when gifts are given to those you love, so how about we show some love to each other by giving someone a Fic-gift. (It is sort of like secret santa, without the religious connotation. We don't want to leave anyone out! :) )

    How to participate:

    Send a PM to [link=http://boards.theforce.net/ASP/pm_send.asp?usr=1213679]me (mavjade)[/link] with the three things you would like in your fic and the main characters (no more than three, please) you would like in your fic.

    Please also include what era(s) you would like to write in and any characters you refuse to write.

    I will then send you someone else's request and you will write a fic with the three things they request. You will then post the fic as a gift to the person who requested it. (Clear as mud right? :p )


    Example PM:
    I would like
    1. Luke and Mara to not be married
    2. First real date
    3. Something that Mara thinks is funny but Luke doesn't

    My characters are Luke and Mara

    I would like to write in Beyond
    [hr]

    [color=purple]Did that help any?[/color]

    Please don't make the requests super specific, this isn't the DARE challenge, and this is a present for you!
    [color=purple](Don't you always love picking out your own presents? I guess you should act surprised when you receive it! :p ) [/color]

    In writing, you can be as creative as you want as long as you do/include the three things requested!
    I'll start passing out assignments at the beginning of December and your gift should be up by midnight board time, [b]January 1st.[/b]

    [b]When you post it please put in the title "Fic-gift for [i]the persons name[/i]"[/b] and post a link in this thread.


    Let me know in the thread if you want to participate, so it will be eaiser for me to keep track. Thanks!

    [b][color=red]Good Luck and Happy Holidays!![/color][/b]
    [:D]


    [b]EDIT:[/b] [color=purple]I was unaware that DarthIshtar and AnakinsFavorite did something similar to this last year. I would like to thank them for their hard work last year, an apologize that I jumped in on it this year. If you would like to take a look here is a link to the thread from last year! [/color]

    It really can be very vague as far as what you want, something like... An explosion, a healer and a lightsaber fight. That just gives your writer more room to make up what they want.

    As far as writing, you can PM me with things you would/wouldn't write and I will do my best to give you a fic that would fit what you would like to write!

    You have time if you want to think on it a while! :)

    Oooh this sounds FUN!! I'm in in in!! [face_dancing]

    I'm just wondering something...can you request certain things as to what fic you write? I mean...for example, I know absolutely NOTHING about the era before the OT (other than the prequel films) So, could I ask to write a gift-fic that would be after the PT? Does that make sense? Or is it, as you said, "clear as mud"?

    Ooooh! This sounds really fun! On question though, can you ask for AU things, or things that happen before the prequal trilogy? (AKA a mission between Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon or something)

    Just wondering!

    Yep, you can! Make sure to put that in your PM and I will make sure not to give you one before the PT!


    Absolutely! This is your fic, you can ask for what ever your heart desires!

    Okay, I want to be in :D When I first saw this, I was all dissapointed- I wanted to do it but had no time (and even then, I'd probably do it with time I didn't have ;)).

    Then, I remembered that I will have time since semester is almost over ;)

    I'll send you a PM later on when I've had time to think!
