Please check the participant list below to see if you are cleared/completed with the exchange! (Marked as "cleared")
November is ending soon...time for a slightly different event that is not a contest!
I have seen several groups host this and I thought this might be fun.
What is this Secret Santa business?
According to wiki, it is a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift at a set date (usually Christmas). But in our case, the gift is a picture/comic or some piece of writing/fanfic.
Also in our case, we do not care if you actually celebrate Christmas. This is just a fun secular gift exchange event.
How do I join?
If the idea of Secret Santa is appealing to you, sign up! However, you should be 100% committed in participating in the exchange or we end up with people not recieving gifts. I can see that irl can cause some people to be unable to finish their gift, and if that happens, tell us ASAP. This way, we can try to assign a replacement santa.
Now here are some rules to sign up!
1) Make your wishlist in your journal and label it as "Secret Santa Wishlist"
2) Send a note to the %Ky-nimNuzlock-Fans group (Click here: ky-nimnuzlock-fans.deviantart.… with a link to your wishlist.
3) We will add you to the Secret Santa participants list!
SIGN UP DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 7TH, MIDNIGHT EST.
FYI, I do realize there are multiple Secret Santas happening in different groups. If you wish to recycle the wishlist you made for another group for this event, that is totally fine.
What do I put on the Wishlist?
Here's a format you can use for your wishlist journal.
- I want my gift to be: A drawing, a piece of literature, etc. Please do not ask for points or money.
- In my gift I'd like to see: Here you list what you want to see in your gift. For example, a drawing of a character/OC that you made or just happen to like.
- References: Please provide links to references or at least a textual description. You don't want your Secret Santa to have to dig through your gallery to find out who or what you're requesting.
- I will be willing to give: Are you an artist, writer, etc? It's important you let me know your strengths so that I can better pair you up with someone who requests your skills.
SAMPLE WISHLIST (version *ky-nim)
- I want my gift to be: Any sort of picture, comic, or even fic is fine with me.
- In my gift I'd like to see: Any of my white run characters in a wintery setting...snowball fighting, sledding, etc. You do not have to include all of the cast members for this.
- References: For the team, this ky-nim.deviantart.com/art/Whit… is a good ref. If you wanna draw gijinkas, ky-nim.deviantart.com/gallery/…. You can read the white run here: ky-nim.deviantart.com/gallery/…
- I will be willing to give: A digital drawing!
I signed up. What do I do next?
1) Participants will be given a number during sign up (listed below) and I will start pairing people up for their Secret Santas.
2) Around Decmber 8-9, I will send you a number via note. Find the number on the list. You are now that person's Secret Santa!
3) You are not, under any circumstance, allowed to to tell them what you're drawing/writing for them. It's supposed to be a surprise!
4) Start working on your gift! Be sure to manage your time responsibly and to put forth your best effort.
5) From December 30th to January 2nd, you will post your gift on deviantArt! Do NOT submit your gift earlier than the dates listed.
6) After this, you need to send a note of the gift to the person and %Ky-nimNuzlock-Fans to prove that you did follow through with the exchange.
