We have some exciting returners and great writers already signed up. You know you want to play!
All can play :P
(art by purple_moon123)
First, here are the rules for anyone who might be new:
1) We take sign ups for a month.
2) We send out assignments and you have about a month to work on them.
3) We then collect the works.
4) If we have some that didn't get filled, we get a "pinch hitter" or someone who offered to do a missing project last minute to create something so that everyone gets a gift.
5) We post everything anonymously first and for a week, you can guess who did what on the speculative posts.
6) Then about a week later, we will reveal everyone.
7) Minimums to play: Fic must be at least 1,000 words, Videos must be 1 minute, and if you do icons, you need at least five. There is no maximum!
Second, here are the dates:
Sign-ups: September 10th - October 17h
Assignments Sent: October 20th
Presents Mailed to mods (instructions will come later in early November): November 20th
Pinch-Hitter Assignments Sent Out: November 23rd (for those not from America, that means alternates/spare writers/artists)
All work must be in, including pinch hitting: December 5th
Full list posted but anonymously by mods: December 6 - December 16th (dates may changed depending on # of ppl who sign up)
Full Reveal: December 20, 2016

An email we can reach you at (required):
Finally, it's been a while since the last bash and we'd love to have anyone who can come out do so. If you've been in retirement, we're all rusty so feel free. If you know someone on Tumblr/Twitter/AO3/Fanfiction.net/etc. who isn't livejouranl active but might be interested please ask them to participate. We do NOT require that participants have an LJ. Since the moderators can post the fiction or art or vids...etc. for participants, all you need to have is a love of Chlark and a desire to post!
If you are new and do not have a livejournal, then we can work around that. If you would like to participate, please send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org" with all the sign-up information and you will be added to the exchange. Since the mods post the work anyway, you don't ever have to worry about LJ access. When the time comes, we'll provide information for how you can submit your work to us via email or youtube...etc. Thank you and we'd LOVE to have you :)
- Current Mood: bouncy
I have had such a time with school starting up that I ended up postponing things. I want this to be a winter festival so I'll put up sign-ups this weekend (for really real) and then we'll have the claiming for a month, a month to write, and unveil everything in November so, in other words, if you want to have holiday themes in your prompts, I think that would defintely fit!
I know we haven't had one in about a year, I was wondering if we could get between 8-10 people even interested in playing, please let me know in comments below.
...will be up on the 17th and then everyone can fill prompts there until October the 1st!
I apologize. I've been on the road traveling a ton. I did ten hours in the last two days and my mom's birthday was yesterday. It's just been a mess.
And free for all opens Monday!
