Welcome to the Animorphs Gift Exchange!

Do you write fanfic or create fanart? Do you like Animorphs? Then this is the exchange for you!

Everyone will give one gift, be it fanfic or fanart, that fits with one of three prompt words chosen by the recipient. Everyone will receive one gift, be it fanfic or fanart that fits with one of 3 prompt words they choose. Pairings and other details may be suggested, but givers are not required to adhere to requests beyond the prompts. The only guarantee participants get is that their gift will focus on one of their chosen prompts, though every effort will be made to ensure that everyone will be pleased with their gift (the more info you give in your sign-up as to your preferences both for giving and getting, the better we'll be able to match you).

Rules:

1) All work created for this exchange must be new, Animorphs-centric, and created with your recipient in mind, using one of the 3 prompt words chosen by your recipient. You may use 2 or all of the prompt words if you wish, but are only required to use one of them.
2) None of the work created may be posted anywhere until your posting day. Please do not reveal who your recipient is until then! Gifts should be posted to this community (links to AO3, LJ, or Tumblr also okay, but you must post your link with title/rating/recipient). A template will be posted in October to make this easier for anyone new to the exchange.
3) If you sign up for the exchange and DO NOT complete your assignment, you CANNOT participate next time around. If you find you will be unable to complete your assignment, PM [livejournal.com profile] frenchroast immediately so an alternate giver can be found.
4) Again, givers are only required to create a gift that fits with one of the prompts requested by the recipient; givers are not bound by other requests by the receiver. It is up to the giver to decide whether to gift fanfic or fanart.
5) Other-fandom-specific Alternate Universes and/or Crossovers are allowed IF requested by the recipient, but not otherwise.
6)FanFic: 1000 words minimum (may be divided into more than one story/multiple drabbles, but must be complete)
   FanArt: 20 icons minimum, OR 1 detailed drawing/sketch/wallpaper/gif set

Prompts:

Everyone should choose 3 words as prompts for your giver. At least 2 should come from the list below.

Title: Love the Warrior
Characters: Tobias, Ax, Toby, Loren, ensemble
Rating: All Ages
Warnings: (skip) Ableism, graphic violence
Beta: lit_luminary
Summary: Tobias joined the war because he had nothing else. Now, he has a true reason to fight. A retelling of #23: The Pretender.
To new readers: This is part of my Dæmorphing series, a fusion of Animorphs with His Dark Materials. If you're new to the 'verse or don't know HDM, refer to this primer.

Read on AO3. Feel free to comment here or there.

Title: Put a Light On
Characters: Loren, Tobias
Rating: All Ages
Warnings: (skip) Mentions of past abuse/neglect
Summary: Loren thinks she might be ready to be a mother. But is Tobias ready to be a son? A coda to Carry On Wayward Son.
Notes:

This is an experimental podfic that I "wrote" by saying a line, thinking about the next, saying that one, then when I was done, going back and editing out the pauses. This is meant to be experienced as a podfic, because it represents Loren's primary way of understanding the world after all her years of blindness, but a transcript is provided as well.

Thanks to Malathyne for beta-listening. The intro and outro are "Put a Light On" by Generationals, which inspired this audio adventure, and the arrangement of the Benedictus is by Simon & Garfunkel.


Download the podfic from Mediafire. (8 minutes, 27 seconds)

Read the transcript on AO3.

Title: The Word of Your Body
Author: [personal profile] joking
Characters: Main six, Berensons, Aftran, Temrash
Pairings: Rachel/Marco, implied one-sided David/Rachel
Rating: Adult (for disturbing themes, not gore or sexuality)
Warnings: (skip) Transphobia, dysphoria, bullying, intersex genital mutilation, body hatred, slurs, misgendering, stalking
Beta: [personal profile] lit_luminary
Summary: In a world where the Animorphs are all transgender or intersex, it isn't the ability to morph that makes all the difference; it's having comrades who can see them for who they truly are.
Notes: This fic attempts to faithfully represent what it might be like to be a transgender kid in the 90s, when Animorphs is set. As such, the kids describe themselves in terms that could be considered offensive today, but were probably all that would have been available to them.

Title: An Invasion of Beasts
Summary: North of the wall, a group of skinchangers capture a man of the Night's Watch.
Crossover/fusion of: K.A. Applegate's "Animorphs" and George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire.”
Spoiler alert: No spoilers for any character specific to either series, but I suppose you might be spoiled for a little bit beyond-the-wall culture if you're reeeeally sensitive about that sort of thing.

Hey guys, I know it's the last day, but I wanted to real quick throw in the information about the Fan Fic Remix Challenge happening on tumblr! The link for the original post by featherquillpen aka [livejournal.com profile] joking is here, and this is the text:

Animorphs Remix Challenge

What is a remix challenge?

Have you ever read someone else’s fanfiction and thought, I really like this story, but I wish there had been more action scenes, or, I wonder what happens in this AU five years later? Then you’ll enjoy a remix challenge. You’ll be matched up with someone else, and your task is to pick one of your recipient’s fics and rewrite it with your own spin.

The characters, pairings, and basic plot have to stay the same, though you can move background pairings to the foreground and vice versa. Everything else is up to you. You can rewrite the story from another character’s POV. You can set the story in a cowboy AU. You can add missing scenes or timestamps set before or after the story you remixed.

For examples, you can always browse the Remix tag on AO3 and look for links to the original stories.

When is this happening?

Signups will start today, December 29, and go until January 14. Assignments will go out a day or two later, and your fic should be posted with the #animorphs remix challenge tag by February 20.

Who can sign up?

To have your fic remixed in the challenge you must have written at least 3 Animorphs fics, to give your remixer some amount of choice. If you haven’t written 3 fics, feel free to sign up as a pinch hitter. Even if we don’t need pinch hitters, I will announce a “Remix Madness” period at the end of the challenge where anyone can remix anyone’s fic, so you’ll get your chance.

How do I sign up?

To sign up, send me an ask with a link to a masterlist of your fic or the tag on Tumblr/DW/LJ you use for your fic. Then give me three things you would like to have in a fic you remix, and three things you’d rather not have. For example:

Yes: Slash, Animorphs families, Jake. No: Het, Visser One, explicit sex.

I will do my best to match you with someone who’s written at least one fic that suits your preferences. If you’re signing up as a pinch hitter, just send me your preferences and I’ll keep you on file.
