A final year of stories that need to be told, of fantasies that need to be acted out, of small naked grey aliens that have a desire to wear festive hats.
It's been a good run, and each and every person involved has been amazing.
So, for the final time, I give my battlecry:
Bring us your gen, your het, your slash.
Bring us your OTPs, your threesomes, your forgies, your puppypiles in the middle of the gateroom.
Bring us John and Teyla and Rodney and Ronon.
Bring us Elizabeth and Jennifer and Radek and Evan.
Bring us John, watching Rodney and realising that he came across a galaxy just to find home. Bring us Sam, as she looks out across the gateroom and understands that every path was designed to lead her right here. Bring us Ronon's fingers on Jennifer's body, worshiping her with each touch.
Bring us a team. Bring us a family. Bring us the ones who fell and the ones who still stand. Bring us the stories of how they made it through.
Bring us the tales that yearn to be sung, notes woven through the stars into eternity.
Bring us your requests, and bring us enough fic to see us, for one more time, all the way through the festive season and out the other side.
The relevant dates:
Sign-ups are between now and Monday October 6th. All the requests will then be jumbled up and sent back out by October 13th (gives us time to match everyone up).
Responses to gift requests are to be sent to one of the moderators (moonlettuce or alyse) on or before December 10th.
Between December 14th and December 23rd all gift!fics will be posted for your delight and delectation.
To join the exchange, simply sign up to the community and post a request with the following information:
Things I'd like: You can request as many things as you'd like in here. That doesn't mean you'll get them all, but there's no harm in asking. If you'd like a specific pairing, or character, then speak now or forever hold thy peace :-)
Things I wouldn't like: If there's anything you wouldn't like to receive (pairing, character, etc) then here's the place to mention it.
What I can do: Are you a slash only person? Do you only write a specific character or pairing?
What I can't do: If there's anything you feel you can't do, then please say so here. If you can't write NC-17 fic, or have no desire to write het / slash, or a specific pairing or character then please say so.
Pinch hitter?: In the event of someone not being able to complete their gift!fic, are you willing to be stand-in writer?
Please post your request as a new post in the community.
For those people without LJs, the non-LJ sign-up post is here: http://sga-santa.livejournal.com/451421.html
All stories should be a minimum of 1,000 words in length and everyone who signs up to receive a story will be expected to write one in return.
In previous years, there have been a few people requesting crossovers in their requests and we would like to point out that there is no guarantee the person who receives your request will know the other fandom.
As such, if you put down that you would like a crossover, it is entirely up to the author whether or not they ignore that part of your request.
After all, please remember that this is a SGA Santa which means that, ultimately, Atlantis is the only fandom we all have in common
Please note, if you do not get a story to us in time we will organise a pinch hitter so that your recipient isn't left without a fic at the end of the fest. If we do this, do not whine at us, because all we will do is mock.
Other information can be found here. Any questions, just ask.
