And it all BEGINS!!!

Hey all,

So... today is the long-awaited day! The very FIRST day of the D/G Fic Exchange A-GoGo of 2013/14! I'm so glad you're all here! We're going to have a GREAT exchange.

So here's what to do now.

Write up a request for the fic you'd like and email it to us at dgfics @gmail.com. Here's the template-- and remember that the basic theme is rebirth/regeneration.

Name/Pen Name:
LJ Username: (If you have one)
Will you be 17 by February 12?
Have you participated in the dgficexchange before?


Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic:
The tone/mood of the fic:
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic:
Preferred rating of the the fic you want:
More canon, or more AU?
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?):

Are you willing to receive art instead of a fic?
If yes, what kind of artwork would you like to receive?
Is there anything you specifically don't want?

If you don't have a livejournal account and don't want to sign up for one, you can cut, paste, and fill out the template and email it to the mods at dgfics[at] gmail.com anyway.

Check out the rules on the userinfo page if you need a refresher, and let us know if you have any questions! Signups will be open until DECEMBER 10TH.

The previous mods USED TO take the prompt requests as comments on this first post, but I've decided that the email option will be easier to handle. That having been said, PLEASE feel free to comment on the prompts or anything else right here. :)

Don't forget, send them to dgfics @gmail.com

I just dedicated like 10 minutes of time to doing this. I feel like such a good person now. I've decided that fic exchange makes me happy. Particularly D/G fic exchange. Those guys are my OTP.

Re: I just did this.

YAY!!! Thanks. :) I think it's going to be a good exchange.

I am pretty much a horrific writer and I simply cannot do anything on command when it comes to creative writing (but I can punch out a research paper, lit review, or action research proposal like it is no ones business)!

I look forward to being a spectator and cannot wait to read some new stories!

I'm the same way! But when the inspiration hits, it hits. It's not about how good a writer you are, it's about how much effort you put in (especially with grammar, in my opinion). I've read lots of fanfics (and even some published books) with horrible plot lines, but finished them and enjoyed them a bit just because the time was taken to make sure the grammar was correct.

Either way, I'm glad to see someone else interested in the exchange! It's been so long since the last one, I've been afraid that we wouldn't get too good of a turn out.

ANIIIISE! I was so set on NOT doing another fic exchange this year! D: I'M WAVERING.

CO-O-OME to the dark side. We have your favorite kind of cookies. (Um... something with chocolate, right? No? Yes? :)
Well, you know, it is totally up to you. There are no giant plot bunnies coming to kidnap you or anything. Really. BUT... you've written for this exchange for a long time. I think you're good luck. :)

Chocolate chip. Classic and the best!

There are no giant plot bunnies coming to kidnap you or anything.

That is TOTALLY not true. Because I'll go into this thinking, "Oh, I can write a short story. I don't have to go crazy with my prompt." And you know what will happen? A giant plot bunny will kidnap me and force me to write a crazy long story. This is what happened five months ago. And I wrote 30,000 words in two months. THIRTY THOUSAND. HOW? WHY??

Really. BUT... you've written for this exchange for a long time. I think you're good luck. :)

I mean, when you say that, how can I resist? :D

30,000 words in two months, and you say that like it's a bad thing!! ;)
Anyway. I'm starting on the virtual cookies right now. Lots of chocolate chips. :)

Not bad. Amazing. Astonishing. Miraculous, even!

The more chocolate chips the better!!

I've had a renewed love for D/G lately (I'm even finishing up the fic I've had hanging around for, oh, a year or so :P), so I'm signing up! So excited, this is my first fic exchange ever.

Questions - does the theme have to factor into what we request, or is that more something to take into account when writing?

Yay! It's a good time to have renewed D/G love. :)

The theme isn't something that we're expecting anybody to Strictly Follow or Else... (plot bunny hops ominously around;) I look at it as something to have in mind when we request and write.
