I meant to post the Fall Fest treat baskets at the end of September, but I'm going out of town tomorrow on a work-related thing (I'll be gone 'til Wednesday or so), and the week has completely gotten away from me! I'll put them up for filling when I get back, and then push back the gift-basket reveals until Nov. 7 or so, to give people plenty of time to do fills.

So go ahead and post your treat basket requests here (instructions at the other post), and I'll get those up in the first week in October. :)

Welcome to Collarcorner Fall Fest 2016!

This is run like fandom_stocking and fandomgiftbox. If you've done those, this will work the same way.

1. Leave a comment with your requests, using the form below.
2. I will post your "treat baskets" to the community in late September or early October.
3. People can fill your "treat basket" with ficlets, fanart, picspams, and other goodies. Everyone is guaranteed to get something. Comments will be screened so it's a surprise.
4. On (or around) Nov. 1 I'll unscreen all the comments and you can see what you got!

Copy and paste the following form, with your answers filled in:

Name on LJ:
Name on AO3:
What kind of treats do you want? (e.g. fic, wallpapers, fanart, fic recs, icons, vids, etc)

Favorite WC characters:
Things you like in fanworks:
Things you don't like in fanworks:

Prompts: (optional - can be for fic, art, vids, etc)

Any non-WC things you might like to receive: (e.g. your other fandoms, other interests, etc)

Anything else?

Other rules:
1. Because this is a gen comm, all treats must be gen. Please don't request pairings or non-gen prompts. Non-gen fills will not be unscreened.
2. Feel free to use some of your old unfilled prompt ideas. If you include a link, please put in the whole URL to make it easier for me to copy-paste your requests. Any special formatting will probably be lost.
3. You can continue to edit your comment until I post your treat basket to the comm.
4. There is no minimum/maximum size for treats; they can be any size or length.
5. You don't have to stick to a person's prompts (those are just for inspiration). However, please do not include any of their dislikes in a treat.

If you have any questions, you can also ask them in the comments.

The poll I posted yesterday on a Collarcorner gen fanworks exchange is still open and you can still vote in it! Right now the votes are running exactly tied for whether to do an exchange vs. a fandom-stocking type "treat basket" fest. The votes are also exactly tied for whether people could participate in the fall or later in the winter.

... so, that being the case, why not do both? We do have enough people to do an exchange (I was thinking we'd need a minimum of 6, and right now we have 9, not counting me). People have pointed out that the White Collar Big Bang is going on right now, so possibly fall might be better for a low-pressure "treat basket" fest while people are busy, and then we could do the exchange in Jan/Feb.

So here is my suggested timeline for upcoming events:

Collarcorner Fall Fest!

This will be set up in the style of Fandom Stocking. I will put up a post where people will post their requests in comments (I'll have a template for you to use) and then I'll post them as individual "treat basket" posts to the community starting in early October. You won't need an LJ account to play, since I'll be doing the posts on the players' behalf. Comments will be screened, so people can put "treats" in the "treat basket", and then I'll unscreen them on Nov. 1, or thereabouts. Everyone is guaranteed at least one treat, and everything must be gen. Basically, if you've done Fandom Stocking, that is exactly how it works (except for the gen part).

Collarcorner gen fanworks exchange

In order to skip the busy holiday season, I'll probably have signups in late November and then the deadline in February. There ARE some fests that have their deadlines then -- there's a whole new crop of new-year fests and exchanges now that go from roughly Jan-March -- but I think this way we'll skip the worst of it; you'll be able to think about your assignment in December, but don't have to start writing/arting until all the Yuletide and Secret Santa and Fandom Stocking stuff is out of the way. Vidders are also very welcome to participate, and that should be long enough to make a vid!

So here's a poll! Does the above sound good to you? (Treat baskets in Sept/Oct, and fanworks exchange in Nov-Feb.) A "yes!" vote does not commit you to participating.

Sound good?

Maybe? I have some modifications to the schedule or rules; see comments
No, I do not like this plan

Sorry about the delay in getting this community rolling again! I'm back from vacation and thinking about what to do next. Earlier in the year, we discussed doing some kind of gen fanworks exchange. At this time of year, if we did something like that, it makes the most sense to do it as as either an autumn or winter holiday exchange.

Have a poll!

Are you interested in participating in a gen fanworks exchange?

I'm not sure

If yes or maybe, which of the following would you be able to participate in?

A fall exchange (signups soon, fanworks due in late Oct. or early Nov.)
A winter holiday exchange (fanworks due around Christmas or early January)
Something else (answer in comments)

Which of these sounds fun to you?

An exchange (people are matched up to create fanworks for someone else)
A Fandom Stocking type fest (people post a letter and other people make things for them)
I have another idea! (see comments)

If we run an exchange, where should we have it?

Signups and assignments on AO3 (AO3 account needed)
Signups on LJ, assignments mailed to participants by the mod
Something else? (post in comments)

If you don't have an LJ account, you can answer in the comments. Feel free to elaborate on any of your answers or ask questions in the comments, also.

I think we will need at least 6 interested people for an exchange to work. A Fandom Stocking type fest could be done with any number of people (and everyone would be guaranteed at least one present, so no one would go away empty-handed).

Now that I'm looking at the time of year, I think it might be fun (and suit the season very well!) to do a trick-or-treat style fest, modeled along the lines of Fandom Stocking, with "candy baskets" instead of stockings. Each person would provide a set of requests and other people could put fic, art, pictures, etc. in their "candy basket". This would also allow people who aren't fanworks creators to participate.

However, a regular exchange would work just fine as long as we get enough people, and I'm also perfectly ready and willing to run one of those!

So go ahead and let me know what you want. :)
As I will be traveling for a lot of July and August, we're going to have a round that will stay open for two months - this round will close on Sept. 1 (or thereabouts) and we'll do something new.

For this round, you can repost up to three unfilled prompts you left in past rounds that you'd like to see filled. You can also post new prompts (no limit on those).

Use this template when posting:

I Would Like:
I Don't Want:

All prompts and fills must be gen. Commentfic, longer fics, art, vids, etc. are all great. Fills may be posted anywhere as long as they're linked from here, and can be posted as new posts to the comm if you like. You can also use your fills to fill other challenges, bingos, etc. as long as their rules allow it.

Round 45, the commentfic lightning round, is closed to new prompts, though still open for fills. And it was a great success -- thanks, everybody! We will definitely do it again.

New round coming up!
