Treats have been sent out, and everyone should have received their gifts! ^_^ So now it's time to try and guess who made them!





Comment here with the title or a brief description of the piece in question (since everyone got multiples) and who you think might have written it.

If you've been guessed, and it was you, feel free to say "Yes! It was me!" and you can post that story/art right away if you like. But ONLY that story/art. Wait until your other pieces have been guessed correctly before posting them.

If you've been guessed, and it was not you, go ahead and say "Nope! Guess again!" and the person will be free to guess again.

Remember, just yes or no answers! Don't spoil it by saying "No, I wrote for so and so," or saying, "No, I wasn't even playing," or anything like that. And if you're not guessed or if not all your stories are guessed, you may begin posting those in two days, on November 2nd.

Have fun, everyone! And Happy Halloween!

[edit] because of the sheer volume of stories and detail it would require to explain which story each guess is for, I'm going to forego posting the guesses in the body of the post. So pay attention to the comments!



And as an aside, thank you for the well wishes everyone. ^_^ No, I didn't lose power. We were very lucky, though another of our mods, Sungreen, did lose power. She does seem to be okay otherwise, though.

Just a reminder that Trick or Treat stories are due NO LATER than the 29th! That means you have just over a week to write your stories and art and email them to me! Remember that they don't need to be anything huge unless you want them to be. They can be as small as 300 words (and pictures can just be sketches) and that's perfectly okay! But even so, if you find that you don't have time to finish any or all or your pieces, let me know ASAP! ^_^

Let's talk about unlocking entries for the Tumblr digest!


It looks like the Tumblr digest is going over well, and that's great! ^_^ We've had some questions about how to unlock your entries from some of our new-to-LJ members. So let's go over that quickly!

Yes, it's finally time to choose your houses! You should have received an email from me letting you know which house is yours and a reminder of how many houses you will be able to visit.** Please comment here with the numbers of the houses you would like to visit, and when all is said and done, I will send you an email letting you know for whom you will be writing/drawing as well as due dates and whatnot. ^_^

Most houses are fiction, but we do have 2 giving art, so you may receive either. :)

Also, houses are first come first serve, I will try to keep on top of this—houses that have run out of treats will be gray—but in case a house runs out of treats and gets chosen before I can make it so, I may ask you to choose a different house.

And that's it!

Check out the neighborhood under the cut, and have fun trick or treating! )

**If you didn't receive an email from me with this information, let me know, and I'll get right back to you.

It's that time again! The leaves are starting to turn, the nights are getting cooler, and All Hallows Eve is upon us! Wish you could still go out trick or treating with the kiddies? Well [livejournal.com profile] wl_fanfiction is giving you trick or treating of a different kind!

Trick or Treat? )

Randon mod aside—This event usually introduces more art into the comm, so it seems like a good time to talk about it. I was thinking, especially what with the new art tag, that art should be allowed in the comm without needing special circumstances like events. A picture is just a visual story, right? And we have so little as it is that I think it would be an added bonus for the comm rather than something that would bog us down. So let's embrace our art! A picture is worth a thousand words after all. ^_^

Happy Halloween, everyone! ^_^ I hope today finds you well!

I was thinking—anyone want to do a little squee about their gifts? Sure, we'll all be commenting when people actually start posting, but when you're feeling that initial squee, you just need to get it out! So if anyone else is looking to share the love, come on in!

my own squees, just to start things off )

Now, you don't have to be as specific as mine, of course. If you just want to do a general "thank you" to everyone who crafted for you, that's cool, too. ^_^ I just had a lot to say, I guess!

Also, what did we think of the complete lack of control over who and what we got this time around? Should we do it again this way next year or go back to knowing who and what we're getting? Or something in between?

Just a reminder to everyone that all stories/icons/art/etc. should be finished and emailed to me by the evening of Friday, Oct. 29th. Thank you!

And since this was brought up to me, and I know I didn't make it particularly clear, just so everyone knows, yes, you will be revealed as the author/artist behind your work when I send the gifts out. So if you want to go ahead and sign your work, feel free. :)

It's finally time to start trick or treating! Beneath the cut, you will find our neighborhood. Choose your houses and leave a comment with the numbers in this post. As the houses run out of candy, they will go dark, and you will no longer be able to visit them.

Houses this way! )

I will try to keep the neighborhood up to date as best I can. Once all houses have been visited, I will send out emails letting everyone know who they will be crafting for, and reminding of further instructions. Have fun!

The houses have been chosen, and everyone should have received emails concerning their assignments! Any problems or mistakes, please email me ASAP.

REMINDER! TRICK OR TREATING SIGN UPS END ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14TH.
Check out the original post here!

We have about a dozen people playing so far, but of those, only 2 are offering art or icons; the rest are doing fiction. Anybody want to jump in with a little variety? Huh, huh? ^_^ Of course more fiction is also more than welcome.

Stuck at home this Halloween handing out candy to the kiddies? Missing the carefree days when you, too, were free to pillage your neighbors and indulge your sweet tooth with the aid of your trusty plastic pumpkin?

Well reminisce no more! Because [livejournal.com profile] wl_fanfiction is bringing back trick or treating with a twist! How would you like to go shopping from door to door, not for candy, but for fic, art and other fandom goodies galore! Curious? Take a peek inside...

It's time to pick at which houses you'll be trick or treating! Please leave a comment here naming the people from whom you'd like to receive your treats! Remember, only pick as many houses as gifts you're giving yourself. Since I'm playing, I'll leave the first comment to give you an idea of the format.

Peek inside to view the neighborhood. ) just have to smooth out the last few kinks, and then you'll get your emails.  ^_^Peek inside to view the neighborhood. )

Have fun trick or treating!

The poll that I posted a couple days ago isn't being too helpful, unfortunately. Like us mods, the players also seems to be of two minds about the idea of whether the type of craft is visible or not, with the preferences being practically split down the middle. Personally, I think it would be safer our first time around if everyone knew what they were in for (we can always switch it up at a later date if we decide to play this game again) but there IS one more vote in favor of keeping them hidden, so I'm at a loss.

So my question is: how would you feel if you didn't get your way?

We know it's impossible to please everyone all of the time, but we'd really like to make the most of you as happy as possible.

So, is it a make or break deal for anyone? Please only comment if you're playing, and if you are playing and haven't made your opinion on the matter known yet, I'd really like to hear it. If you're uncomfortable sharing your opinion in a public setting, feel free to email or PM me.

*laughs* Damn, this thing is complicated, isn't it? ^_^ I do apologize for the profuse amount of set up, but once we get the kinks smoothed out, I think we're going to roll just fine.

CHECK OUT THE ORIGINAL POST FOR SIGN UP INFORMATION Last day for sign ups! However, I will be putting off the choosing post until later in the evening tomorrow. I won't be around the majority of the day, and I'd like to be here to update everyone's "candy" giving status while that's going on. So if anyone's going back and forth on wanting to play, I'll let you know that you technically have until the morning to decide. ^_^

BUT SIGN UP NOW ANYWAY! BEAT THE RUSH! :D


Also, I had someone who tried to sign up through PM, and she said she'd email me, but she never did...? Did you still want to play?

Rmember, sign ups end on the 8th!! So if you want to play, check out the original post and email me your sign up! (PMs will not work for this; must be email.)

Also, a question has arisen pertaining to the choosing process, which is the next step. There's a debate over whether—when you're choosing who you would like to receive something from—we should or should not post what a particular person is doing. A.K.A., if I happened to be doing icons and Sun happened to be doing fiction, should this be stated or should it be a surprise? Meaning, you could pick me or Sun to receive from, but you wouldn't know what type of thing we'd be doing? Please vote!

Hey, everyone! :) I've spent a chunk of today trying to smooth this thing out as best I can. I've asked around and had some extended conversations with both mods and participants, and I wanted to add an adendum to the previous post. These things have been added to that post as well, but I'm making a separate post so I'm sure everyone sees it.

1. In trying to keep everything nice and even amongst the participants, we're limiting this time around to 5 crafts per person. You can have less, but you cannot have more.

2. If you are writing fiction, please aim to make the story between 300 and 500 words. It can be more if you like, but try very hard not to make it less.

3. If doing icons, 2 well thought out icons are the equivalent of one story. (For example: If you sign up and say you're willing to do 6 icons, that's the equivalent of writing 3 stories, and those 6 icons will be given out to 3 people, 2 icons per person.) If you're planning on doing slap-dash, cropped a picture and called it a day icons, please choose another option as this would be unfair to others.

If there's any forseeable problems with these adendums, feel free to PM or email me at clayangel@comcast.net. (If you PM me, please make sure your privacy settings are such that I can PM you back, however.)

Thanks,
Clay
