Lewis Secret Santa 2015.jpg

Before signing-up, please make sure you have read the Lewis Secret Santa Exchange Q&A first.

To sign-up, email us with the below information. We will email you back to acknowledge your entry.


***PLEASE EMAIL YOUR ENTRY TO lewismod@hotmail.co.uk****

Let us know if you want us to use an alternative email to the one you're sending your entry from.

I would like to receive: Please provide as much detail and options as possible here about what type of Secret Santa gift you would like to receive. For example, characters, pairings, genres, types of fanwork, any specific prompts etc. See below for 'good' and 'bad' examples of how to fill out this bit.

I would NOT like to receive: Please provide details here about what you would NOT want to receive, for example any squicks or pairings you don't like. See below for 'good' and 'bad' examples of how to fill out this bit.

I am willing to create: Please provide as much detail and options as possible here about what type of Secret Santa gift you are willing to create. For example, characters, pairings, genres, types of fanwork, any specific prompts etc. See below for 'good' and 'bad' examples of how to fill out this bit.

I will NOT create: Please provide details here about what you will NOT create, for example any squicks, pairings you don't like, or other limitations. See below for 'good' and 'bad' examples of how to fill out this bit.

Are you willing to act as a pinch-hitter? I.e. are you willing to step in to create an additional fanwork if someone has to drop out of the Exchange? We're hoping that all participants will receive something so you can help make this happen.


Providing details of what you want to and don't want to receive:

Don't be too vague or too narrow in your requests. Provide as much options as you can. If you say 'I would like some fic, anything is fine' then you are forfeiting the right to complain if you happen to receive a fic with e.g. a theme or pairing you don't like.

Good examples:
I would like fic, Lewis/Hobson if at all possible but Gen is also good. I like romance, humour and happy endings. Case fic would also be awesome. I really love the 'pretending to be married' cliche so would be over the moon if you can incorporate it. I'm also happy with any graphics or e.g. a fanmix, again Lewis/Hobson preferred, but Gen ones are also great. I like classical music and colours green and blue so something with those would be cool.

I'm not too keen on m/m or f/f slash so not that please. I don't like heavy kink or graphic violence (some violence is okay, like if you have a murder in the case fic, but not too many details please). I don't really get videos so wouldn't know how to appreciate it. Oh, and I hate techno music so none of that on fanmix please.

Bad examples:
Too vague: I want some art/Fic please/Slash only/Anything goes (you can put this last option but must be prepared to accept literally anything then).

Too dictatorial: I would like a fic where Lewis and Hathaway live on the moon and adopt space monkeys and then there's civil war and it should all provide some in-depth social commentary about the nature of power and democracy.

Providing details of what you are willing and not willing to create.

Good examples:

I'm willing to write fic, can write Gen or Slash (Lewis/Hathaway preferred but guess I could try my hand at femslash too...). I'm particularly good at angst and darker stuff, can do most kinks. Other fanworks I can create include fanmixes and icons.

I don't want to write het. Not very good at fluff or happy fics. I'm bad at creating original characters. I can't do videos and my graphic skills aren't great so I wouldn't want to try any larger graphics.

Bad examples:
Too vague: I'll write some fic/Het preferred/Anything goes (you can put this last option but must be prepared to receive a request of literally anything then)

Too dictatorial: I've been planning on this oil painting of naked James so I'll do that/I hate everyone except Lewis so I'm only going to write fic about him.


We hope this is clear enough. If not and you have any questions, please ask them HERE


Lewis Secret Santa Exchange 2015 Q&A


Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle aaaaaaaaaall the waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy... Yes! It's that time of the year again. The fifth Lewis Secret Santa Exchange is here!

This post is for information and for you to ask any questions you may have. To sign-up to the Exchange, go to the Sign-Up Post but please read the familiar guidelines below first.

Q: How will the 'Secret Santa Exchange' work?
When signing up for the Exchange you provide details of the kinds of fanworks you would like to both receive and create (and anything you definitely wouldn't (see Sign-Up Post for information). Mods will match all the requests to creators as best as we can and 1. send your request to someone and 2. send you the details of the request you are expected to fill. You will only know your recipient's name and all fanworks will be posted anonymously (by the mods). Everyone will receive a lovely Secret Santa treat. Authors' and creators' names will be revealed after the Exchange is over and in the meanwhile you can all enjoy a little excitement and secrecy to spice up the winter time.

Q: What are Minimum Requirements?
You are expected to create at least:
Fic - 1000 words
Icon set - 10 icons
Larger graphics(headers, banners, wallpaper) - 2 graphics
Fanmix - 10 songs
Videos - 1 minute

Q: Can I sign-up just to receive a gift?
No. This is an exchange so if you post a request for a gift, you will be asked to give a gift in return. Therefore, please do not sign-up if you believe you will be unable to complete a request given to you.

Q: Can I create a sequel/missing scene to an existing fic/fanwork?
No. All fanworks must be new creations. This is for two reasons: 1. You are creating a 'gift' for somebody else, which means you should be aiming to write/create something that matches their wishes. 2. Creating something linked to an existing fic/fanwork would negate the anonymity of the posts.

Q: Do I need a beta reader/viewer?
We strongly encourage this practice if at all possible. As you're creating a gift, it's a good idea to get it checked over by a second pair of eyes. Feel free to keep using the community Beta Post to find a beta.

Q: What if I my recipient requests for something I really don't want to do?
This shouldn't happen. Everyone is encouraged to provide a variety of options and prompts and the Mods will do their best to find a suitable match for everyone.

Q: What is the time schedule like?

Sign-ups open: 6th November
Sign-ups close: 13th November 6pm (GMT)
Assignments are sent out: by 15th November
Check-in: 4th December
Posting starts: ~22nd December (mod travel arrangements permitting, we're both in transit around Christmas time)
Author/Creator reveals: Once all fanworks are posted, probably after New Year

Q: Sounds awesome, how do I sign-up?
Go to the Sign-Up Post for all the necessary information.

Q: Can I pimp this to my friends?
Please do, and feel free to use the above banner to do so.

Q: I am confused and still have questions, what to do?
Comment in this post with your questions and we'll do our best to answer them.

The Case of Potter's Persuasive Powers

So I wrote this ficlet. More of a drabble, really. And it was written for the monsterfest at ushobwri but then I realised it was going live in time for the frightfest here. Not sure whether we're allowed to post to two comms so I'll let the mods decide about tags etc. or even throw me out...

Anyway, you can see it here (complete with illustration):

This was the first story I wrote for Frightfest but for reasons chose not to post first.

Title: Off-kilter
Author: fortesomniare
Characters: James Hathaway, Robert Lewis, Laura Hobson.
Pairing: James Hathaway/Robert Lewis
Rating: Mature
Word count: ~2000

James tried to concentrate, to will the memories to form. He saw the faces of Laura Hobson and Robbie as they stood on the bank. Whatever Laura was saying, she’d made Robbie roll his eyes. He remembered flaring white lights and the sound of shattering glass. Then nothing.

James followed the line of their gaze. His head slowly tilted as an unexpectedly familiar yet foreign shadow appeared along the rear wall.

“Shouldn’t be here,” he muttered. “Can’t be here.”

My deepest thanks to barcardivodka for providing background about the Museum of Natural History and the streets of Oxford, including taking two videos to give me a better idea of the lay of the land. Her help was invaluable.
Thank you, hun. *mwahz* We’ll walk those streets together in 2017!

I have tinkered with it quite a bit since it came back from beta. All errors, etc., are all mine.
