Hey barricadiers!

Merry Christmas/festivus/whatever to all of you! I hope you all are having a lovely Christmas! We are short 5 Secret Santa gifts! Those who have not turned in their gifts have been notified. Get your deviations in and don't leave anyone empty handed!

Starlene proposed an idea a month or so ago that sounds like a lot of fun- Secret Santa. To mark the holidays this winter. And of course, even if you don't celebrate the particular holiday associated with Santa (aka Christmas) secret Santa is just a fun way to celebrate one another and the turning of the year.

:santa: Secret Santa :santa:

RULES:

:bulletred: Members who sign up ARE REQUIRED to create a deviation for another deviant, therefore, only sign up if you will do so.
:bulletred: Gift deviations MUST be the WORK OF THE DEVIANT and MAY NOT violate DA's rules (no screenshots!)
:bulletred: Gift deviations MUST be completed by December 20th.
:bulletred: All gift deviations MUST be submitted to the group between December 20th and 25th.
:bulletred: Gift deviations must include the name of the recipient in the title.

How to Participate:

:bulletblack: Send a note to the group with the names of your favorite Les Mis character and favorite Les Mis genre (book, musical, or movie). COMMENTS HERE WILL BE IGNORED!
:bulletblack: You will receive in return another member's name, favorite character, and genre.
:bulletblack: You must then create a deviation using their favorite character from the genre of their choice.
Ex. If they like the musical Enjolras, art deviations should probably show a red-vested Enjy.
:bulletblack: Remember the golden rule- treat your neighbor as yourself- spend as much time and attention on the gift deviation you make as you hope someone will spend on yours.

:star: ALL participants MUST note the group by OCTOBER 22, 2011

Gift deviations can be of ANY kind, so long as they have been made with care. :)

Hey! One clarification, please - the rules say the gifts must be completed before December 20. Should they be submitted to dART on that date, or is it okay to submit them earlier?

If we participate in the Secret Santa, may we send in the deviation earlier than the due date?

I'm planning to do it in rounds, first one at the end of this week, second at the end of next. To give a good mix, but also give time for people to enter.

Alright, that sounds good ^^ I sent a note earlier so I'll sit tight. I just didn't want to get someone's request too late to make something nice for them :)

Secret Santa sounds good to me - I've done it for a fanfic exchange, but never for an art exchange.

But, awkward carriage ride fanfiction sounds...interesting. I'd still prefer a Secret Santa, though.

:'D The Awkward Carriage Ride Fanfiction... I'm kind of perversely intrigued about that... ;)
But in all seriousness, if my opinion is worth anything here, I'm all for Secret Santa.
