Things I'd like: I'd really like fic or video. I'm partial to happy stuff: humour, fluff, crack, happily ever afters are all good. MWPP and next gen are my two most favourite eras, but not exclusively so. I like reading about unsual settings: what goes on inside the Slytherin dormitories, or the Ministry of Magic, or even in the basement of Grimmauld Place when everyone else is gone.
A list of my favourite ships (this is not all-inclusive, obviously) would include the following: Andromeda x Ted, Angelina x Fred; Bill x Fleur; Draco x Ginny; Ernie x Millicent; Harry x Luna; James x Lily; Katie x Oliver; Remus x Sirius; Rose x Scorpius; Teddy x Victoire.
I know that must seem restrictive, so here are characters are I'd always love to read about: James, Sirius, their epic friendship; the First Order of the Phoenix; Blaise Zabini; Slytherins in general; Luna Lovegood; Fred and George Weasley and Harry's first year Quidditch team; any and all of the Next Gen kids.
What I can do: Fic :D
What I absolutely CAN'T do: Fic with higher ratings like NC-17. Dark/excessively angsty fic. Also, I'm no good at writing Albus [Dumbledore] x Gellert, Albus x Scorpius, Draco x Hermione, Harry x Draco, Harry x Ron, Harry x Snape, Ron x Hermione. Everything else is fine :)

Things I'd like: Creature, Veela, Mate, Mpreg, Hurt/Comfort, any or all of these and more for fic and art :) Slash pairings only, favs are Harry/Lucius, Harry/Draco, Harry/Charlie, Harry/Snape, Harry/Al, Harry/James Sirius, Harry/Sirius, AS/S, AS/James Sirius, James Sirius/Scorpius, Scorpius/Harry, Scorpius/Draco, Draco/Al, Draco/James Sirius, on and on, just no het, Ron, or Voldie :)
What I can do: I am best with graphics (icons, wallpapers, banners, picspams, etc) but I can write fic, just not long ones.
What I absolutely CAN'T do: I don't do Het at all, I also have a hard time with really dark fic. Lastly, I can't draw. I love doing other graphic things, but I can't do original art for the life of me, just photomanips and things like that.
Sign-ups begin today!
Here's what you do:
In a new post, please post your wish list using this format:
E-mail address: This is so I can let you know who you'll be getting. :)
Things I'd like: Pretty self-explanatory, right? Here's where you put what you'd like whether it be fic, icons, or some other type of graphics like banners/headers or videos, heck even if you want podfic, throw it in here. You want a fic about the epic love of Dobby and the Giant Squid (hey, it exists...probably)? Ask away! Just remember that the more requests you post, the more likely you are to get something you want. Just try not to write something the length of an epic novel. ~_^
What I can do: Let me know what you can do. This way, if you're hopeless with graphics, I don't give you someone who wants a batch of icons or something and if you absolutely can't/don't write fic, I don't give you someone who wants fic only. So whatever you can do, put it here. :)
What I absolutely CAN'T do: Again, this helps me match people up. If you can only do fic or only do graphics, make it clear. You can't write slash or you can't write het? You only write gen or you don't write any/some kinks or whatever? That goes here too.
Make these posts from now until November 30th. So, have fun coming up with requests, guys! If you have any questions, e-mail me at email@example.com. As a back up, please feel free to PM me here on LJ as well because I know that sometimes, stuff gets sent automatically to the spam folder when you email and I don't want to miss anyone's questions.
It's nearly time for another year to start here! I've been a bit busy but I switched up the layout here - it's a lot more simple looking and I'm working on getting some promo banners done so that sign-ups can start up as usual on Halloween.
I know last year was hard for everyone to keep up with this - me included - so I hope that this year things are going better for everyone.
See you in a couple of weeks for sign-ups!
Let's get these gifts posted folks! I know there's at least one that's ready to go so hopefully the others are too!
If you're not going to be able to post at all, PLEASE either e-mail or PM me so that I can know and work on that.
This means no teaser gifts if you were planning on any.
For your posts of final gifts, please make a separate post and, to make it easier to locate, have your subject be "Final gift for ___________". This will make it so much easier to tag. Please try to put all of your final gift(s) into one post if possible so that we can keep from spamming people too much.
Please use LJ cuts for fics and graphics, guys. This way we won't take up space on anyone's flist.
If you can't post your final gift before the final deadline in January because you won't have access to a computer or the internet for a good long while, then please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can post it and the person can get their gift and no one will be left out. If you're going to be a bit late (and this means after the deadline of January 8th), then please let me know so that I can notify the person that their gift is on the way but is just a little late.
Thank you so much to everyone who has participated!
And there's also the chance that we won't have enough people to match up. I'm hoping that's not the case but I'm at work and haven't been able to do a final count.
So, if you'd be interested in being a back-up Santa in case someone else has to back out, please let me know here. You'll only be asked to do this if it's absolutely necessary so don't worry about having to frantically put together two gifts.
If you're going to be doing a fic, I'd prefer it if you sent it as a text file in an attachment. If it needs any coding for LJ, you'd be doing me a huge favor if you sent me the fic with that already included. :)
If it's going to be a graphic, you can send it as an attachment or send me the link. Either way, don't worry, no one will know who it's from since I'll save it to somewhere else.
If it's a video or a fanmix, then upload it somewhere like YouSendIt (or something similar) and then send the link.
Just send it all to email@example.com.
Assignments have officially been sent!
If you have any questions for the person you'll be creating something for, please let me know.
If you don't receive your email, let me know and I'll message it to you over LJ. I know last year, they ended up in people's spam folders somehow.
Have fun and good luck!
