Stock: That Gentleman

We're back in the game!

Alright, ladies and gents,

Secret Santa Fic is back in business! I just got the all-clear from Zoe to run this baby, and more details will follow in the next couple days as we get everything hammered out, but I just wanted to get the word out and get you thinking about this community and what you'd like to write for someone! We're completely revamping it, so if you have any questions, would be interested in help moderating, or have some ideas of what you would like to see, leave a comment or email me at averisimilitude@gmail.com

Thanks!

I hope it is okay when making this post, but I was just wondering, since we missed out on the exchange of fics last year, what about this year? Because I seeriously love this comm and the idea behind it and would hate seeing it dying. So any chance there will be an exchange this christmas?

Big drama...HELP!

Okay, so people are going to hate me for this and I hope it doesn't kill this community because it is my baby and I really love it.

I was really hoping to have all the fic assignments out by this time, this year - as you know normally the request posts are at least up by now but I am not going to be able to organise everything this year. 

In fact I won't actually be home or be able to access the net for a good portion of the deadline time.

What I need is HELP!!!

I need mods who can basically take over - that is if people still want to do the exchange this year.  I know there was drama in the last two years because some really loyal members missed out on fics which I'm still trying to fix and I myself owe people still (but that is my drama - it's really hard doing all this, even with the great help I had last year but hang in there with me and we'll get there eventually).

This comm is really still a baby.  This would be our third year.  So it does stand to reason that we still have a few hiccups.

Now it is kinda late to get this all in and organised by xmas but if people want to give it a try and I can get mods to help - then I'm happy to get the ball rolling so to speak.

I have two suggestions:

- Either I get some mods and we try, but some people might miss out again or at the very least not get their fic until after xmas

or

- We leave it for now and instead have an exchange in like June/July of next year, a kind of Xmas in July fic exchange and then the normal exchange would take place in december of 08 like normal.

So tell me what you want to do and I'll try and make it happen.

If you were a mod last and you want to mod again this year - let me know.  If you don't - let me know.

If you are new or if you're an old member and you think you have what it takes to be a mod - let me know.

I have one new mod but myself and one other person isn't really gonna cut it especially since I won't really be involved as a mod this year.

Everything will be back to normal next year (only better and more organised - I hope).

I will be happy to write fic and everything but I just know that being disconnected at the time when the exchange is in full swing means I really can't be the main mod this year.  I just can't and I'm so freaken sorry I am.  I feel so bad.  I've actually made myself sick about this.

I don't even have time to email everyone like I have in previous years so I don't even know who will see this but life is crazy for me at the moment, so if you have people on your flists and you know they are members feel free to direct them to this post.

If you want to email me to chat about this or even just to bitch me out for being a bad person or whatever you can reach me here:

36 Dramatic Situations

I recently joined the secretsantafic community as an administrator (though most don't know me, I helped out in the very very beginning...) and since this is a rather pointed community with little to no activity in the months after Christmas, I was thinking that we have a lot of brilliant writers here, who may want to do more stuff during the year after the Christmas seasons. Therefore, I would like to instate a new challenge... for authors to partake in if they so choose. These stories can then be voted on, so to speak, for the top 4 and whomever wins will get a custom banner/gif/wallpaper by yours truly-- me! :D

So, in the spirit of this... I have found a challenge which I think would be very fun to do and also fun for everyone else to do as well. I found this challenge on adultfanfiction.net... and though I don't have express permission to use it-- the idea is pretty much free reign because it has to do with certain elements which are not of the original poster's ideas. So, here is the challenge.

The challenge can be in any fandom, any pairing (as long as it is slash), any rating, and what have you. There is no word limit to this challenge. You can write as much or as little as you want (though, as they say, the more the merrier :D). Note: Wikipedia is the source of this information. :)

"The Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations is a descriptive list which was created by Georges Polti to categorize every dramatic situation that might occur in a story or performance. To do this Polti analyzed classical Greek texts, plus classical and contemporaneous French works. He also analyzed a handful of non-French authors. In his introduction, Polti claims to be continuing the work of Carlo Gozzi, who also identified 36 situations.

This list was published in a book of the same name, which contains extended explanations and examples. The original French-language book was written in the 19th century. An English translation was published in 1917 and continues to be reprinted to this day.

The list is popularized as an aid for writers, but it is also used by dramatists, storytellers and many others. Other similar lists have since been made, some more attuned to modern sensibilities, but Polti's guide remains one of the most popular and enduring."

If you are interested in this challenge... there are two things I would like you to do. The first thing I would like you to do is 1. Post a comment here detailing which number you'd like to do and the possible fandom in which you would write it in. You do not have to stick to that fandom if you wind up changing your mind. 2. E-mail me at chemistry.kitty@gmail.com this same information (for my personal record keeping) as well as what sort of wallpaper/gif/banner you would like if you win. This way, I can keep everything organized for the end of the challenge.

I would like all of these to be taken, but if they are not-- then oh well. :) People can apply for the challenge up until August 3rd, 2007. After that, I will edit this post with the deadline of the challenge submissions, the rules for posting the challenges, and go over the voting process.

Thank you in advance for all who participate.
