Sookie’s Secret Santa

Sookie’s Secret Santa – an unconventional fic swap

What could bring more Yuletide joy than the gift of writing a fanfic especially for someone or receiving a fic written just for you?

Sookie’s Secret Santa wants to bring that joy to the SVM/Trueblood fandom!

How does it work?

Send an email to: sookies.secret.santa@gmail.com letting us know that you want to take part - you will be required to write a story as this is a fic EXCHANGE (you write a story and you get one back - written especially for you!). We will need all of the participants to do this by Sunday 6th November 9pm GMT (4pm EST)

~v~

You will receive an email asking for some information. Your fanfic.net pen name and a link to it, which pairing (if any) you prefer and what you DON’T like to read. We need this information back to us by Thursday 10th November 9pm GMT (4pm EST)

~v~

On Sunday 13th November you will be given the name of the person YOU will be Secret Santa for and any specifications they outline (e.g. favourite characters, AH/Canon/AU, lemons/no lemons, no bad language). It might be someone you’re familiar with; it might be someone you’ve never heard of. We will try to ensure that everyone is comfortable writing a story for the other person e.g. If someone prefers to write Sookie/Bill pairings they will not be required to write for a Sookie/Eric shipper.

~v~

There is no minimum or maximum word limit. All we ask is that you write a one-shot fic for the person you are Secret Santa for and that you take their specifications into account when you write it. Although the Festive Season is the reason for this fic swap, fics don’t have to be about Christmas and all gift fics will be anonymous. A list of participants will be posted here so you can all have fun guessing who might be writing for you!

~v~

Send us your fic before the 18th December and we will post it under this profile in the week running up to Christmas. The email address you should send your story to is: sookies.secret.santa@gmail.com The summary for the fic will include who the fic is for and that it is from their secret Santa. Sample fics from the hosts will be posted before this date.

~v~

This is not a contest; there is no prize or kudos other than the wonderful feeling that someone wrote a fic just for you! Unfortunately, we do have to restrict participation to over 18’s only. There will be no judging process and gift fics do not have to be beta’d, if you want to use one that’s cool, if you don’t then that’s cool too – this is purely for fun and giving everyone in the fandom the chance to give and receive the very thing we are all here for.

If you really would like your gift fic to be Beta'd, the lovely Northwoman http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1930464/Northwoman has offered her services.

~v~

We ask that everyone keeps to the spirit of the Secret Santa theme and keeps who they are Secret Santa for to themselves because all will be revealed on Boxing Day (26th December). Once the list of who was Secret Santa for who has been posted, everyone is very welcome to post their fics on their own profiles and, more importantly, to thank the person who wrote them their fic.

~v~

Who is organising this thing anyway? Your hosts are Jan of Arc http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2083266/Jan_of_Arc and Blakes Boogie http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2381207/blakes_boogie , questions regarding the fic swap can be sent to us, but we would prefer that enquiries were sent to sookies.secret.santa@gmail.com

~v~

We hope this idea appeals to everyone and that many of you will take part. We look forward to hearing from you and remember to add Sookie's Secret Santa to your author alerts to ensure you keep up to date! As the SVM fandom is larger than the TB fandom, all fics will be posted in the Sookiestackhouse/SVM category, a commnuity in this category has been created so all of the gift fics can be found in one place.
