Fiction and RP Gift Post

Receiving gifts is all well and good, but really it is better to give than to receive. Of course, we can all only give so much. So we need you to tell us what you're willing to give.

We do have a few rules for giving. What good would moderators and communities be without rules?

For fiction: Make sure you list what fandoms you are willing to write ("anything" is not acceptable, because there are SO many fandoms out there) and the maximum rating you are willing to write. Also mention whether or not you are willing to "pitch hit", which means if for some reason a gift-giver is unable to give a gift, you could step in at the last minute and whip up something wonderful for our gift-getter.

For RP: The rules here are pretty much the same as the rules for Fiction. Except we want you to let us know your preferred style of RP. Everyone has a different style, and we want to know yours. Tell us your fandoms, your ratings, what you don't want to RP and your preferred style and if you're willing to "pitch hit" as far as RP goes as well. It's as easy as that!

For more information check out the rules or feel free to contact one of the mods. We're always happy to help!

And because we enjoy giving just as much as everyone here does, we are giving you a nifty little text box to copy and paste!



Remember to post in the Request post, so you can get a gift, too!

The Rules!

The rules on requesting:
For fiction: Make sure to request a certain fandom or characters from that fandom. Make sure you spell out what you want and don't want, but don't make it too complicated, allow your gift-giver to give you some of their own creativity as well!
For example:
Fic request: Doctor Who, Ten/Martha. Martha takes the Doctor out for banana sundaes.
Please include: Romance, a cheesy joke, and references to the Doctor's shoes
Please don't include: Angst, mentions of Tom Milligan, or Daleks
Rating Preferred: Anything works for me!

For RP: Make sure you say where and what you'd like in your RP thread! Don't spell out your thread to the point of a piece of fiction, remember that RP means working together and therefore things may not go as planned. That's the beauty of RP! The most special thing about requesting this gift is you get to play with someone you might not have!
For example:
RP Request: My character: the Doctor (Ten) from Doctor Who.
Place: Earth, 1978, at a rock concert.
I hope to play out: Dancing, singing, and running for our lives.
Maximum Preferred Rating: PG-13 or less, please.
Preferred RP Style: Story format, 3rd person, past tense

Most importantly: Be grateful! Gifts are wonderful things!

Remember! Your style of writing isn't important, but make sure that you put heart into your story, someone special will be receiving it as a gift!
For example:
Fandoms: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Firefly, X-Files, Strange Luck, Highlander, Heroes, House MD, Pirates of the Caribbean.
Maximum Rating: Up to PG-13
Will not write: Doctor/Master slash, Mulder/Scully

There are no rules about length of your stories or your RPs. Just remember these are gifts! You know how you'd rather receive a gift that was worked hard on rather than something that's expensive? Same thing here! Quality and not quantity is what's important!

Rules for RP
Make sure you say what you're willing to write and what style you prefer to write in. Everyone has a different style!
Fandoms: Hell Girl, Blood +, Death Note
Maximum Preferred Rating: Will write up to NC-17
Would Prefer Not To RP: Slash, overt violence
Preferred RP Style: Single/multiple line, 1st person, asterisk style

RP in this community will not be restricted by adult content, slash, or anything else. Do what you wanna do. But please respect your fellow RPer, make sure you don't go beyond the RP rating they've requested, godmod (control) their characters, or push the other player into something they don't want. Naturally, the same is expected from the receiver to the giver.

By giving RP, you're giving the chance to meet a new person and have a lot of fun! However, although we want everyone here to interact, we do understand that for whatever reason some people cannot RP together. In the extreme case where you would feel uncomfortable RPing with a certain player, please let us know. All comments are screened so no one will know except for us.

Also:

If you can pitch-hit, that's the thing where you pick up a gift to give last-minute in case someone else drops out, make sure to say so on your comment!

Remember, you can not receive unless you give. So give!
