The Supernatural & CWRPF Holiday Exchange 2020 - Sign-Ups

Welcome to the exchange you’ve been waiting for all year - 2020’s round of spn_j2_xmas!

This is a Secret Santa style fanworks exchange for the SPN and CWRPF fandom. Whether you have participated all 12 years, or have just stumbled upon this awesome event, everyone is invited to participate. If you don’t have an LJ, you can sign up here in an anonymous comment, and when it comes to posting your gift, mods will post the header and link to your fic for you.

How it works:
  1. Sign up now in the comments with a list of ships/prompts you'd like fic or art for, and also what you're able to do.

  2. The mods will then match you with another participant to create a gift for.

  3. Over the next couple months, create your gift!

  4. Post your gift to this community any time in December.

  5. Enjoy the gift someone made for you!


Art, fic, and vids are all welcome as are any and all pairings or single characters. Despite the community name, you can request all manner of popular pairings or rarepairs, for example Jack/Castiel, Rowena gen, Sam selfcest, Osric/Genevieve, or whichever other pairings float your boat.

Timetable

Sign-ups will run for one week, from today Monday, August 24th to 11:59pm PST on Monday, August 31st. You should then receive an email with your assignment by Saturday, September 5th. 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, 2020. 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 at the end of November, so don’t worry about that now.

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

If you have participated in any of the past rounds and have changed your LJ name since or are now using DW/Tumblr/AO3, please let us know. 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 @ gmail.com

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

Also please feel free to help promote and invite your friends. Here are banners to share!

Here's to another fantastic round!

Enjoy!
Jen: DARLING LIL NUGGET

gift for wetsammy

Title: All Your Curves and Your Edges
Giftee: wetsammy
Gifter: dugindeep
Pairing: Jensen/Jared (mentions of past Jared/Matt Cohen)
Words: 9000
Rating/Warnings: NC-17/murder; sociopath!Jensen; top!Jensen/bottom!Jared; descriptions of dead bodies; gaslighting
Summary: Jensen is a professional. He’s been writing about murder for nearly two decades now, crafting all sorts of stories where good guys prevail, but with every book, he’s learned more and more about how the bad guys cover their tracks.
Notes: I tried running with your gaslighting prompt, even read up on the movie the phrase is based on, and went with a sort of AU in that vein. Happy Belated Holidays!

Gift for deans-jiggly-pudding

Title: Turn of the Year
Exchange: spn_j2_xmas
Giftee: [Bad username: deans-jiggly-pudding]
Gifter: kototyph
Pairing: Dean Winchester/Castiel, Dean Winchester & Sam Winchester
Word Count: 3.5k
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon, Hunter!Dean, Witch!Castiel, Winter Solstice, Yule, Longest Night Rituals, The Author Has Read Terry Pratchett
Notes: So sorry to be a little late with your gift, love, but hoping you like it! Leaning heavily on the creature!fic part of your prompt for this one.
Summary:

Fifteen minutes later, Dean gets back in the car with empty hands and ice in his fucking eyebrows. “Get the map out,” he says through chattering teeth, sticking numb fingers under his arms.

Sam holds up the battered 1995 Rand MacNally they keep in the side pocket turned to a page of uninterrupted green. “We’re going to die,” he announces.

Gift for Cherie_morte

Title: Machine Heart
Gifter: quickreaver
Giftee: cherie_morte
Pairing/Characters: J2
Word count: 6k
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: swearing
Summary: Jensen loves machines. What happens when a machine loves him back?

A/N: My delightful, dear cherie_morte, I don't know why I thought I should write you a fic when I'm so out of practice and you're such a brilliant writer and I'm late and I'm shooting myself in the foot here. I've completely forgotten how to build a story, unaided by the fact I'm writing blurb after a bottle of prosecco. Happy New Year, darling! *throws a pan of water* (And all my thanks to the mods, for all their patience and hard work!)

Gift for kisahawklin

Title: Five Dates
Gifter: de_nugis
Giftee: kisahawklin
Pairing: Sam/Castiel (main pairing); Dean/Castiel (background); Sam/Dean (mentioned)
Wordcount: c8000
Rating: E
Warnings: an episode of ghost possession, canon-level disturbing themes, but it's really a romcom in the end
Summary: Four times Sam and Cas went on dates and one time they stayed home.

A/N: apologies to both the mods and the giftee for the lateness, this fic kicked my ass. I hope you find a selection of your likes here, kisahawklin. See notes and additional tags on AO3 for more information.
