December 2017 Anonymous Fictrade!

posts: 53

What is a fic trade?
Close your eyes. Picture a magical place where you could put out an idea for a fic, and a wonderful stranger over the internet would write it for you. Okay, now open your eyes. You are at that place right now! Please celebrate as you see fit.

This is basically a gift exchange but with fics. Remember, to get one, you must write one.

What is a Secret Santa fic trade?
All of the stories will be posted on the same account! Part of the fun of these rounds is that you can guess who the author is. Once the round is over, stories will be moved to the correct author’s account.

Validated authors will be given the account name and password. Unvalidated authors must have either a validated author participating in the fictrade or Shade post their story to the account after edits are made as necessary.

Who can participate?
Everyone can participate in the Fic Trade, regardless of whether or not they have already posted stories on Lunaescence. The only exception applies to those who signed up in the last fic trade and failed to fulfill their assignments; these individuals are not allowed to participate in the current round. Should you fail to fulfill your assignment in this round, you will be barred from the next round. WE DO KEEP TRACK.

Can unvalidated authors participate?
Absolutely! Unvalidated authors are more than welcome. For the anonymous fictrade, they are required to have a beta reader (a validated author participating in the Fictrade or Shade) to post their story to the anonymous account.

Registration and Posting Thread?
Posting doesn't start until a few days after registration ends, and since this round is anonymous, please don't spoil the fun by posting that it's your story! There will be a guessing thread instead where you can place your guesses for as many of the fics as you want! Please don't reveal that you're the author until after the guessing has closed, even if somebody guesses correctly!

Max Rating? Length?
Max Rating: Choose from All, Youth, 13+, 17+, Adult, Adult+.

Length: This is a range. Choose from Any, 100-500, 500-1000, 1000-5000, 5000-10 000, 10 000+ words. (Please don't pick all 10 000+. It's not very considerate, especially for newer writers who may not have written something that long before.)

Fandom? Pairing? What if I want to make that the writer's choice?

Fandoms:
• If you want to leave the fandom up to the writer, that's perfectly alright. Just write "Any" under fandom.
• If you want to provide a fandom list for the author to choose from, put "See List" under fandom and put a list somewhere in your application.
• If you want an original fiction story, state "Original Fiction" under fandom.

Pairings:
Since you can't specify a pairing without specifying a fandom, you have the following options if you choose to leave the fandom open:
• "Canon/Canon," "Canon/OC," "Canon/Reader," "Any," or "None."
• If you want to leave the pairing up to the writer but are uncomfortable with OOC pairings or homosexual pairings, please make a note of that, as in "no shonen-ai" or "no OOC" or something like that.
• Even if you do specify a fandom, you can always choose not to specify a pairing or to request a story with no specific pairing.
• You can also, of course, request a story about one specific character with no specified pairing. For example, you could put "just write about John" under "Pairing" or you could switch it to "Character: John."

Basically...just customize the application as needed.

Please note: All authors must have one prompt (the fourth one) that is not specific to fandom. This is to accommodate original fiction writers and people who write for obscure fandoms who would otherwise be impossible to pair. If you do not include this fourth prompt, I will NOT let you participate in the FicTrade.

What is this round's over-arching theme?
Secret Santa / Warm & fuzzy

What is a prompt?
Prompts are meant to inspire stories rather than define them. They are not summaries, just ideas. They can be a quotation, a single word, a brief phrase, or even a song, video, or image. In this trade, they're given for you.

What is a Spare?
A spare is someone who is willing to take a second prompt, if necessary. This only happens if someone drops out of the trade or doesn't turn in their fic on time. Spares are free to ignore the requested length, but not the maximum rating.

Who is organizing it?
The moderator in charge of this current round is Shade. She will be the one responsible for distributing the request assignments after registration finishes on December 8. Lunaescence's posting policy still applies.
