Last chance for Secret Santa sign-ups! Tonight when I go to bed, the post will close.

As of now, there are only 3 people signed up (including myself) so I may be fiddling with the process a little-- if no one else signs up, we would each do secret gifts for the other two participants, but with lowered requirements (IE at least 500 words of fic, rather than 700, or a non-colored drawing rather than a colored one, or 6 icons instead of ten.... etc). Does that sound ok to current participants if we get no more people?

Once stockings are posted, you are also totally welcome to spread the link around so your friends can give you treats as well. The more surprises come Christmas day, the merrier. :)

The holidays are upon us, crew, and this community has been quiet for some time. Truth be told, I miss it a great deal but just don't have the energy/time to run a round for the time being. Still, your commodore's been pining for pirates and new Pirates of the Caribbean content to be fawned over, and I know some of you have too, so here's what we'll do! Have a Secret Sparrow Santa! There should be a Captain in there somewhere...

Just fill out this form and leave it in the comments. On November 30th, this post will close and I will post screened stockings for everyone in secret_sparrow, then give a screened comment to all participants telling them who they have been assigned to make gifts for. You can make gifts for anyone and put stuff in any stocking! The more, the merrier! But you have to make something for your giftee; a minimum of one finished/colored piece of fan art or 10 icons or 500 words of fic or a music video or a fanmix with at least 7 songs and cover art. Want to do more? Go for it! :D

Here is the form!




PLEASE DO NOT FILL OUT AN APPLICATION UNLESS YOU PLAN ON PARTICIPATING.
Participation is imperative for Secret Santa to work. If you do not get your gifts in for your giftee, your stocking will not be unlocked on Christmas. ALL GIFTS SHOULD BE IN BY DECEMBER 23RD. If they are not, I will ask pinch hitters to take over with drabbles, icons, and whatever they can whip up so no stocking is left empty.

You do not have to have participated in round one to participate in the Secret Santa.

I actually have to quick start by asking everyone who's voted in the Brethren Court Icons challenge, to jump back and take a look at one of the icons again. One of the icons was meant to be animated, and I didn't think while making my table, so the icon ended up being a still image. The animated version is at the bottom now.

Moving onward! Thank you to everyone who took part in the challenge. You all made beautiful backgrounds, and everyone had votes! :)
