／人◕ ‿‿ ◕人＼ Lunaescence Fic Trade 2012 — Trollround ／人◕ ‿‿ ◕人＼ ⇒ Registration ThreadUPDATES
04.08.2012 -- And we're done! /o/ Thanks all for participating and being so great about getting things done! Reveals can be found in the discussion post. :3What is fic trade?
Ever wanted to feel all fuzzy inside when someone wrote for you? Ever had an idea you wanted to write, but weren't able to do it yourself? Well then, you should enter Luna's Fic Trade! Fic Trade is similar to Secret Santa (except it's not Christmas and definitely not snowing right now, at least in San Francisco), where you suggest three prompts and someone will answer your request! Similar to Secret Santa, you won't know who is answering your request until they have posted the story.But what is an anonymous fic trade?
Trollround will, in fact, be an anonround. An anonymous fic trade is like a Secret Santa, except you don't entirely know who Santa is even after you get the gift. Basically, the fics are all posted on the anonymous account
, and people can guess who the author is in the reviews. You can also make guesses in the discussion thread
, though you won't have much time this round. Guesses can be based on fandoms, writing styles, and so on. After the author is correctly guessed (or after a certain timeframe has passed), the fic will be moved to its proper account.But what counts as trolling?
Trolling is me making Kyuubey the mascot of this round.
...okay, more seriously. "Trolling" would be defined as doing something for the lulz, basically! Do it to get a rise out of people! The difference here is that it's all in good fun, so we're not trying to make anyone angry. For this round, the theme is basically unexpected humor! This can take the form of unexpected plot twists, sticking to the letter but not the spirit of the prompt, making your prompts as ridiculous as you can, etc..
-KS was talking about a Prussia/reader prompt; I mentioned that I would be more likely to turn it into Hungary/Reader/Austria/Prussia romantic entanglement.
-Prompt: Making out with (Pokemon trainer of choice), who turns out to actually be a Ditto.
-Have one character endlessly mock/troll all of the others. Orihara Izaya is a prime example.
-"And then rocks fell and everyone died."
Since this is for fun and we actually want the recipients to enjoy their fics, there is an addition to the application form, where you can specify what you will and will not read, so as to avoid anyone getting something that actually offends them. This doesn't have to be comprehensive by any means. Use your own good judgment too! If it's something most people are likely to be squicked by, don't include it. Alternately, if it's something you would be okay with that you think most people would not like, do say that you would be all right with reading it.Who is organizing it?
