Pimping Banners - 2019 Wishlist Event

Hi friends. Wishlist is only fun if people make a wish! So spread the word using a banner code from below on your LIVEJOURNAL and DREAMWIDTH!

Happy wishing!

How The Event Works: The Wishlist Event is here to bring you lots of writing fun! [AND ART]

You reply to this post with your wishlist. Your wishlist can be as long and as specific as you want (within reason, of course - please contain your list to one comment), but must contain requests for ficlets (or art) of rare pairings – pairings.

Other info: You can post your wish list on LJ or Dreamwidth. But only at one place.

DO NOT PM THE MOD ACCOUNT. EMAIL US: rarepair.shorts.mod@gmail.com.

Comments are screened. If you post something and it disappears, don't freak out. I promise you, it's there. Don't post multiple times. If you post your wish list anonymously, it will disappear, and you won't be able to see it. (But we will be able to see it, and it will be revealed on May 31).

Happy wishing!



How The Event Works: The Wishlist Event wants to to bring you lots of writing fun! [AND ART].

This event runs in two parts. Part 1 – You make a wish list. On May 15, we will make a post where all members will be encouraged to post their wishes about what kind of fic/art they’d like. It’s open to all rare-pairs and gen fics (and art). The signup for the wishes is from May 15-30.

Your wish will be hidden from the general public until May 31. On May 31, we will do the big reveal and everyone can see who wished for what.

Part 2 – Members will be encouraged to fill those wishes from June 1 until August 31.

There is no obligation in this event. If you post a wishlist, you don't need to grant other people's wishes; similarly, if you don't post a wishlist, you may still grant others' wishes.

Your wishlist can be as long and as specific as you want (within reason, of course - please contain your list to one comment), but must contain requests for ficlets (or art) of rare pairings.


After MAY 30 (10 pm EST), no one else may post a wishlist. If you do post a wishlist, you may certainly edit or add to it at any time before May 30th.

Please note, there is no wishing format. You can post your wish in any style you want. Pairing specific prompts. List of prompts. List of pairings. – The wishing will begin on May 15.

For gifts, all fic must be between 200 to 2000 words. No more than that. There is no obligation in this event. You may write as many fics for as many people as you like. More than one person may grant the same wish.

If you have never participated before, and have questions, you can ask below. Comments will be screened. When we answer your question, we will unscreen them. We are both on Livejournal and Dreamwidth). Please note, on May 15, we will post more information. But we welcome questions.
