Kaoru x Shinya
The tour and recent vids and comments and interviews (sleepy DEG in Russia i'm looking at you) and the whole general rush in activity on the part of the band have left me so pumped up with ideas and an urge to write that I've ended up signing up for this and am actually quite excited about it.
We have some extremely talented writers on board this year that the outcome will most certainly be brilliant and i for one can't wait areading fic after fic each day in december :D.
i remember writing fic for this challenge last year and it was such a rewarding experience, especially after a long time of not being able to write anything, just that whole, someone is waiting for a fic from me made me sit down and just write all else be damned and that felt so great. And then reading great fic after great fic every day, ganwing on nails while waiting for my recipient to read their fic, then waiting for my own present... can't believe it's already been a year to be honest.
i look forward to do this again this year and i hope i'll meet some of you in there too. come on over and sign up too. seriously. remember all the challenges of the past, maybe you've been part of some, maybe you read the creations, challenges are always such a great time to enjoy fic and this is your chance to be a part of it too. plus it's always great to have good fic written for you as a bonus present on holidays no?
But thing is, i'd really like to read some KS this year too.
There are a lot of bands on board already but i think we need more Diru writers, we really do. Think about it, do you want jrockyaoi to have only Gazette this Xmas? or would you really, really like to read your band, your pair this year? with your specifications too? Like, imagine, someone might actually write that fic that you've always wanted to read about Kaoru/Shinya but nobody wrote.
Don't worry about listing 5 bands, offer more Diru pairings if deg is the only thing you're willing to write, (just say you'd prefer to write/receive KS if you'd specifically like KS). As said, there are not so many deg writers.
really, seriously, come on over. And bring your friends. It'll be great and it's always awesome to write for challenges with your friends and for your friends :) We can encourage each other, listen to each other's whining, hold hands, ask questions, look for advice and write great fic together. Even if we're just fans sharing the same fandom. I think it's worth doing it.
If you want to read last year's submissions, here you go. You can also leave comments if you like, cause it's never too late for those and they always bring a smile to people's faces. Not to mention they help writers a lot through the ups and downs of believing in themselves :)
Please feel free to invite your friends to participate and advertise the community anywhere you feel relevant. The more the merrier. Fer real. You've got time until the 23rd (that's Friday).
