Secret (Mir/)Santa?

Hey all!

It's getting to be that time (the most wonderful, so says the song) of the year.

Last year, the Secret Mir/Santa gift fic exchange went really well, so I was thinking that we should continue the tradition.

However, time this year is already short, so maybe we could make it a drabble exchange, instead.

But before we get into details, is anyone even interested?

Summer Exchange - Dates Being Moved!

Due to the fact that only five people so far have signed up for the Summer Exchange, I am extending the sign-ups until July 14th, on which date the assignments will be sent out. The due date will also be moved back to August 14th.

Please be sure to tell any of your friends who may be interested in participating about this exchange! Remember, the more people involved, the more fanfic to read in the end.

If you're interested in participating but haven't signed up yet, please visit this post to do so as soon as possible.

The MiroSan Summer Exchange - Opening Requests Post

Hello all!

I'm sure a lot of you remember last year's Secret MiroSanta. Well, guess what? It's finally summer, school is letting out, and it's time for another round of MiroSan fiction! May I have the pleasure of introducing...

The Miroku Sango Fanfic Summer Exchange!

If you are interested in participating, please leave a comment on this post by noon PST on July 14th listing the following information:

LJ Username:
I Want to Read: (Genres, details)
Please Don't Include:
Max Rating:
Any Prompts: (Optional, up to four.)

Prompts are to help inspire the person assigned to write for you, in the case that they have difficulty coming up with ideas. The muses are stingy creatures, if you know what I mean. However, writers are not required to use these prompts if they have ideas of their own.

Also, if you are used to writing for a particular genre or have other particularities about your own work, feel free to mention that as well so that I can take that into consideration.

The entire point of this fanfic exchange is to write Miroku/Sango fanfiction, of which there is a sad dearth of within the fandom. We, being the fans we are, would like to amend this, which is why we are hosting this exchange. This is also why pairings other than Miroku/Sango are not accepted as the focus of your fanfiction in this exchange, should you choose to participate, though they may be secondary.

Next, to participate, you are not required to be a member of the_chasms, though we strongly encourage you to join. If you are not a member and you do want to join in, feel free to submit your request, but please be certain that you will be able to fulfill the obligation of writing a fanfic for someone else by the posting deadline. Actually, this applies to everyone, and I cannot emphasize the importance of this enough.

If you did not complete your submission for the Secret MiroSanta 2006, you will not be permitted to participate in this round unless you complete your last assignment by the request submission deadline (July 14th).

Once all of the requests are in, assignments will be sent out by email on July 15th. You will have a month to write your assigned fanfiction before the submission deadline, August 14th, on which date an entry will be posted where you will be able to comment with a link to your story. Periodic reminders will be sent out through July and early August to everyone, and after the submission deadline to those who do not post their fanfics.

For those curious, or still unsure of whether or not they want to join in, the submissions we received for the MiroSanta can be found here. As you can see, we have a great number of talented writers in this community, many of whom have already expressed interest in participating in this exchange. You will not be receiving a badly written story if you do participate!

On a final note, feel free to tell your writing friends about this exchange! More participants means more fanfic, and that's always a good thing. (Especially when your niche in fandom borders on neglected sometimes.) solichan is in the midst of creating a banner for you to post to your own journal(s), so look for that over the next few days.

Thank you for reading this lengthy post, and I hope to see you as part of the MiroSan Summer Exchange!

I have good news.

I'm currently taking a break from writing the last scene of The Opposite of Attraction. So far, the chapter is over 8,700 words in length - I've been working on this all day instead of my much more important original story. I may expand some bits and pieces before I post it - it depends on what advice lucindathemaid gives me after I send it to her tomorrow morning, I suppose. I'm feeling a bit too sleepy right now to know for sure.

Anyway, I'm guessing that you guys are probably interested in a sneak-peek. Am I right?

Feel free to tell me what you thought! Feedback is, as always, greatly appreciated.

Let's Help Cori Write!

All right. Here we are, well into 2007, and Corisu hasn't been on the scene. Heck, she doesn't even have a tag in this community yet! So, in order to kick start her and get her into motion, she is making this weirdly third-person post.

I'm accepting one-shot requests! But not just any one-shot requests, oh, no. I want you to dig down deep and find that stuff that you would never dare ask anyone to write, but that you'd gladly write for yourself. (No, this does not mean porn.) Have you ever watched a show and had a sudden mind-movie about something that would never happen in the series, but made you want it to happen all the same?

Well, kick start me in motion with some of your guilty, goofy fantasies!

I'll be accepting requests starting today until midnight, April 13. (Friday the 13th, spooky~) Each person can make up to two requests, in the format below:

Email Addy:
What I want:
Maximum rating tolerable? (G-NC-17):
What Cori can take liberties with:
AU or Non-AU preferred?:
Anything else?:

I will write for IY, Harry Potter, Ouran High School Host Club, Saiyuki, and Fruits Basket.

If things go as they should, all requests will be filled by May 5. So, who's for helping me get back on the scene? Goodness knows I need to write more. *slinks onto corner and hides from the Margo*

(I may X-post this to my own journal.  Putting this up on is another possibility.)

Title: Feline
Author: Starzki
Rating: MA (for those of you with dirty minds and/or understand the subtext)
Pairing: Mir/San
Summary: Had you asked him before he met Sango, Miroku would have sworn he preferred dogs.  Drabble.
