a Christmas fanworks exchange for Watchmen fandom

He sees you when you're sleeping,
He knows when you're awake,
He knows if you've been bad or good,
So be good, for goodness sake...

Welcome to wm_secretsanta, a festive fanworks exchange for the Watchmen fandom.

The concept is simple – gift a fellow fan and receive a gift in return <3

How it works

Step 1. Join the community!

Step 2. Fill in and post the following in comment to the signup post:

LJ username/email:
Because we all need a little redundancy in our lives. If you do not have PMs enabled, please provide an email address as well.

Things I'd like:
Make a wishlist! Be as general or specific as you want, but give your Secret Santa plenty of options, e.g.:
– Fanart of Adrian/Eddie
– Some Bubastis icons
– Fic about young Walter's experiences with Christmas (angst/bittersweet is okay)

It doesn't have to be holiday-themed, of course. :D

Things I wouldn't like:
Squicks, characters you don't care for, scenarios you wouldn't like? Scared of glowing blue genitalia? Mention it here.

Max rating of what I would like:
Because not everyone wants explicit NC-17 art in their inbox!

What I can give:
e.g. fic, art, graphics; which characters/pairings you are best with.

Max rating I'm willing to create:
Because not everyone likes writing the hardcore stuff!

What I can't do:
Assignments that would be disastrous, e.g.:
– I'm no good at writing Doctor Manhattan!
– I cannot draw to save my life D:
– I can't get my head around rule 63

Pinch hitter?
Can you step in at the last minute to save the day if things go awry?

Please don't sign up if you do not think you will be able to complete your gift – this exchange is as much about giving as receiving: don't be selfish.

Step 3: Once signups are closed, you will be contacted by PM or email with details of who you will be gifting. Don't reveal yourself to them, that'll spoil the fun!

Step 4: Get creating! If you run into trouble, leave a message soon as possible in the screened post (see "Contact" link below), so I can arrange a pinch hitter if necessary. Life gets in the way, things can go wrong, it's okay <3

Step 5: Time for the big reveal! Post your gift any time between December 21st, 2011 – January 8th, 2012!
