IT'S THAT TIME!! Now that all of you have been flooding my inbox with ideas of “creatures not stirring, not even a moose”, I’m giving you the opportunity to pounce on one other to in order to claim these silly notions so you can make each others holidays desires come true.
Claims are now open for the Crowley’s Covert Christmas Fic Exchange. Remember, only those who submitted prompts are eligible to claim, otherwise you will find yourself answering to me.
To claim, enter a comment to this post. This is first come, first served - so please give me your first, second, and third choice. You are claiming a person (delightful concept, isn’t it?), not a specific prompt, so I just need the lj usernames of your top three choices.
I will PM you to let you know which one you get. Hopefully, most everyone will get their first choice. But please remember, I am the King of the Hell. That position comes with responsibilities other than running this little challenge and responding to your every comment. So clearly I might take a moment or two to get back you!
The comments are screened, because this is SECRET. Don't tell anyone who you're writing for. We want it to be a bloody surprise, not some silly free for all. That’s why we have rules people.
All fics will be due by December 20th. You will need to email them as an attachment to me, your King, at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do the actual posting under my account. Whatever format you have should be fine, but I'll let you know if there are any issues. I’m sure we will be able to work out some sort of payment if there are any problems.
I will begin posting on December 24th and all stories should be posted by January 6th. I will reveal the authors who gifted you with your sappy stories soon after that. At that time, you will be free to crosspost your story and/or share it on other sites. Doing so sooner will result in torture.
You should also be prepared to email/PM which prompt you have chosen no later than December 1st so that I can give artists a chance to jump on this holiday bandwagon.
Finally, none of you should get any ideas about trying to make my heart grow three sizes this holiday season. I’m not the Grinch, I’m the sodding King of Hell!
