Assignments all out

Just to keep you posted, all assignments should now have gone out.

If you haven't received yours and it's not in your spam folder, please email the mod address at spnj2xmas(at)gmail(dot)com and I'll resend it.

Once you've received your assignment and had a chance to look it over, please reply to the assignment email. It only needs to be a quick response to say you've got your match-up - please don't make me chase you up later in the week!

Also, we may occasionally send emails with questions from your gifter so please remember to check your mailbox regularly.

As always, feel free to email if you've got any questions/problems, but otherwise happy gifting! :)



The matching process for this year's round of spn_j2_xmas is now done and assignments will be sent out tomorrow from about 11am UK time. It will take me a while to get 100+ emails out so please don't fret if you don't get yours immediately.

I've done my best with the matching but if there are any problems with your assignment, please let me know as soon as possible. Mistakes do happen and the sooner you let me know, the better the chance is of reshuffling assignments. Please bear in mind that it is a challenge and you may need to stretch yourself a little but if you're concerned about your assignment for whatever reason, please do drop an email to the mod account. We would much rather you let us try to help instead of being quietly unhappy!

I'll make another post tomorrow when everything's been sent out; if you haven't received your assignment at that point and it's not in your spam either, let me know so that I can resend.


Sign-ups closing soon!

Hi, guys! Just a heads up that sign-ups for this year's round of spn_j2_xmas are coming to an end shortly.

As in previous years, the official deadline is midnight tonight BST (i.e. in about seven hours) but since the matching won't start until I get up tomorrow, it's not exactly going to be a problem if they trickle in before morning UK time. The sign-up post will be edited and all comments locked once the matching has started, so if you can still comment then you're still good to be included. :)

Assignments should hopefully go out next weekend so get any last minute sign-ups in now!


Intense reindeers (and other promo banners)

Sign-ups for this year's spn_j2_xmas exchange are open (*jazzhands*) and there are five shiny promo banners below, courtesy of the very lovely ldyghst, in case you need some motivation or want to coax your flist into playing. \o/

four more below the cutCollapse )

Sign-ups close at midnight on Saturday 6 September with assignments going out the weekend after, so snag your favourite banner and spread the word! ♥


As promised, spn_j2_xmas is back for a 2014 round!

This is a Secret Santa style fanworks exchange for the SPN and CWRPF fandom. You sign up with what you'd like to receive and what you're able to do, then you're matched up to create a SPN or CWRPF fandom gift for another participant and to receive one in return.

Art, fic, and vids are all welcome as are any and all pairings. Despite the community name, this is not a J2 only exchange - you can request Sam/Castiel, Abaddon gen, Jensen/Misha, Osric/Genevieve, or whichever other pairings float your boat.

A run down of the rulesCollapse )

Drop-out/sign-up policyCollapse )

Signing up!Collapse )


Sign ups will run for one week, from today Saturday 30 August to midnight BST on Saturday 6 September (i.e. the Saturday night.)

Assignments will be sent out approximately a week later, on or after 14 September. We'll post when they've been sent out and ask everyone to confirm receipt.

Posting of gifts will run from December 1 to December 25 2014. You can post your gift any time in that range - there are no assigned posting dates - and we'll be checking in with you along the way. We will give you full posting instructions nearer the time!

If you sign up, we would also recommend joining and watching the community now so that you can be granted posting access and so that you don't miss out on any information.

One last thing: If you have participated in any of the past rounds and have changed your LJ name since, please let us know, either in your sign-up comment or in an email to spnj2xmas @ This is to try and prevent people getting the same match-ups as they've had in the past - we want to keep things new for everyone!

Any questions, please send them to the mod email address: spnj2xmas @

Pinch-hitters, as always, are lifesavers. A post will go up nearer the time pinch-hitters are needed, asking for your sign-ups. ♥

Here's to another fantastic round! Have fun!

2014 exchange opening this weekend

Thank you to everyone who voted in the poll recently!

The earlier set of dates won and so sign-ups for the 2014 round of spn_j2_xmas will be opening this weekend. As always, sign-ups will run for a week (to 6 September) and assignments should go out around 14 September.

More details will be given in the sign-up post but if you have any queries, please feel free to email spnj2xmas @ If you'd like to participate but the sign-up/assignment dates are going to cause you problems, please do drop an email to the mod address and we can try to work something out. ♥


2014 exchange

Hi, guys!

Just a quick heads up that there will be a 2014 round of spn_j2_xmas this year.

Don't panic, I know it's only mid-August and the exchange won't be starting for a little while yet, but there are a couple of options for dates this year and so I just wanted to run them by you to see which works best for most people.

Please note that whatever start date is chosen, the posting period will still run from 1 December to 25 December 2014. The 'assignments go out' dates are also best estimates - it could be a day or two earlier or later depending on how long the matching takes.

Poll #1979162 Round 7!
This poll is closed.

Which dates would you prefer?

Sign-ups open on 30 August, assignments go out 14 September
Sign-ups open on 20 September, assignments go out 5 October
I have no preference

Much more detailed information on the exchange and sign-ups will be given nearer the time but if you have any questions in the meantime, please let me know! :)


2013 masterlist

It's a wrap! 134 gifts have been exchanged and the 2013 round of spn_j2_xmas is now finished. \o/

Thank you so so much to everyone who participated in this round! Extra thank you to our ever-excellent pinchhitters, especially those who didn't get gifts of their own and those who stepped in to help out when we had very (very!) last minute dropouts. You are all wonderful. ♥

There's a masterlist beneath the cut for you to check out any of the awesome gifts you may have missed. I know it can get busy around the holiday season and that some gifts were posted late but please be sure to acknowledge and thank your gifter for the time and effort they put in to creating your gift if you haven't done so already. :)

There's a lot of coding here so please let me know if there are any typos/mistakes/missing links etc. in the masterlist. I've also included a handful of facts and figures about this year's crop of gifts below the cut.

bonus facts and figuresCollapse )

Thank you again to everyone who took part this round. I hope you all have a fantastic New Year and hopefully we'll see you all again in September for the next round! ♥
