Well, since we had a few people definitely interested, we figured- why not? Even if it's a small exchange, we can still have fun, right?
Hello and welcome! Please read over all
the following before signing up. Thank you!What 'Secret Santa Exchange' Means:
You create a fanwork, and you'll receive one in return. Everyone who wishes to participate will provide a few prompts that they'd like to see completed, and another community member will be assigned their prompts and will complete one of those (which one is completed is up to the person they're assigned to). When you submit your prompts, you are welcome (and encouraged) to tell me anything you are uncomfortable with or don't wish to do (pairings, genre, rating, etc), that way the prompts you're given are something you're comfortable writing/drawing.Rules and Regulations:1) Join the Community!
You MUST join this community
so you can post your fill here when it is completed and keep up on important information and announcements posted pre-due date. 2) All fanworks must be focused on Prussia/Switzerland.
This is not a general Hetalia fic/art exchange, it is for this pairing. As such, their relationship needs to be the focus. Other pairings may
be included if want in your prompts (for example, it is allowed to ask for a fic that's Prussia/Switzerland with some Germany/North Italy), but again, Prussia/Switzerland as the focus.3) Can I ask for ____?
You can ask for whatever you want- rating, genre, etc. However, please keep in mind that if you're asking for something super unusual, you might want to provide some broader prompts as well.4) How long do I have to signup?
Signups will end on Monday 11/08. Assignments will be sent out by 11/10.5) When is the deadline?
Please have your piece completed and posted by 12/24/10. You may post your fanwork any time after 12/01/10.6) How do I post it?
I'll put up the posting format later, but you just post it directly to the community. You may put it below an lj-cut or link off community (to a writing journal, ff.net, deviantart, etc).7) How long does fic have to be? At least eight hundred words.
It doesn't need to be super-long of course, but we want everyone to get something that's more than drabble length.8) Are there any extra requirements for the art?
Aside from the stipulations listed above for both fic and art, no. It can be done in any medium (digital, colored pencil, copic, sketch, etc). Just remember that this is a gift for someone, so make sure it's a completed piece!9) Can I do fancomics?
Yes. Absolutely.10) I have another question.
Then please ask it in reply here.11) What if I need to drop out?
Then I would ask you to please let me know as soon as possible
so we can arrange a pinch hitter for you.12) What is a pinch hitter?
If someone has to drop out, I'd still like their giftee to get a gift. A pinch hitter is someone who is willing to do a second fanwork in order to make sure no one goes without a gift. 13) What type of prompts should I give?
Prompts can be anything from something vague like "Prussia/Switzerland under the mistletoe," "Prussia/Switzerland, chaotic date" to something specific like "I'd like to see a human AU where Prussia and Switzerland both work at the same office. Prussia keeps playing pranks on Switzerland to get his attention. Eventually he agrees to stop if Switzerland will go on a date with him. Over time, the two legitimately fall in love. Can have US/UK and Germany/North Italy as well!" You must
give me three prompts or I cannot fairly give your requests to your Santa.Okay, I'm ready to signup!
Great, here's a sample form. Just reply to THIS post with your form. You can use the handy dandy provided html. Comments are screened.
