    Slashing Fandoms -Spring Mix- due July 21st, 2014

    Due!: July 21st, 2014
    Withdraw Date: Let me know at least a week prior to the due date.
    Swapping: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Unlimited players
    Mediums: Any







    Welcome to the Spring Mix edition of Slashing Fandoms! Same rules apply as Summer Lovin', but with added FLOWERS. We're going to really Anime it up in here. Flowers normally spring into action when there's romance happening, so they should be blooming around your couple of choice.



    From Wikipedia: "Slash fiction is a genre of fan fiction that focuses on interpersonal attraction and sexual relationships between fictional characters of the same sex. While the term was originally restricted to stories in which male media characters were involved in an explicit sexual relationship as a primary plot element (also known as "slash" or "m/m slash"), it is now used to refer to any fan story containing a pairing between same-sex characters. Many fans distinguish female-focused slash as a separate genre, commonly referred to as femslash (also known as "f/f slash", "femmeslash", "altfic" and "saffic"). The characters are usually not engaged in such relationships in their respective fictional universes." Because there are some wonderful canon couples, there won't be a restriction on them.


    Whether you ship TV (see: Dean/Castiel up there, Sterek, JackXIanto), Movie (LokiXStark anyone?), Anime (WolfwoodXVash, SebastianXCiel...etc), or Book (Jean ClaudeXAsher, MagnusXAlex) characters, this is the swap for you! We welcome lady!slash too, so if you like your girl characters together, the more the merrier!
    We can be as innocent or (Adult!)naughty as we like, as long as we put the cards in the correct gallery.


    ATC Details
    Please be sure your card conforms to ATC standards for size, and do not send anything too flimsy or with pieces falling off. Your substrate should at least be cardstock. Be sure to put your cards into sleeves for protection.

    I do not accept stickers as the primary image for an ATC in my swaps. For collage you should be combining at least 3 images to create something original, such as an different head and arms onto a dress and a background of some sort.

    Cards that do not conform to the rules will be returned at the player's expense and will not be swapped out here. I'm not mean about these things, I just want everyone to get back returns that reflect a suitable amount of work and originality.

    Postage
    Please do not send SASE. I will supply envelopes.
    US players: $1.25
    International: $2 in US or Canadian funds.
    Canada: Appropriate stamp/s
    If your cards are heavy or you're sending more than 3, please add extra postage to accommodate. You can pay by PayPal with an additional $0.50 for fees, just PM me for details.

    An extra card on theme is wonderful, but certainly not mandatory nor expected for participation.

    Cards must arrive on time (or early!), must all be in sleeves, and should be your best effort.

    Please include a large, filled-out address label and I will supply the return envelope. NO SASE please. See above for amounts to send. Please don't send those tiny return address labels.

    Please PM me for the addy when you are ready to mail out.
    Thanks all!

    Sorry!
    Summer Lovin' was the first edition. Basically, we learned we can't post up anything explicitly sexual to the site. Penises are okay, but no sex can happen. If you want to do sexy cards, I would suggest thumbnails and then I'll swap them out with those who opt in for that sort of thing.

    Lovely! Yes, I'm not limiting where they're from, just as long as they're LGBTQIA, snuggly, and have flowers somewhere in the picture.



    Also, what are your favourite couples?

    Thanks a lot for the invitation! I loved the last swap and would generally love to play again, but I'm not sure I'll be able to... I'll try to get the cards done and then sign up!
    Hugs, Sarah

    Mizgoat, those are freaking fantastic!
    We're getting more and more spring flowers around here. I took a few pics of some tulips and cherry blossoms before my camera decided it was too damp and started overexposing everything e.e

    How are we doing? Ice and I went to X-Men and it was pretty cool! Lots of potential for slashing there.

    Do you have any references for Gray and Orlando? Fan fiction or something?
    Also, have you seen the newest incarnation of Gray on Penny Dreadful?

    I was looking them up and they're in separate books, which is totally fine, I just wondered. I bet it would be brilliant if they got together.

    Femslash, well, I put a few pairing in the first post, but I've also ran across Cosima/Delphine on Orphan Black, Rizzoli/Iles from that same show, Xena/Gabrielle...all kinds of them.

    I actually went and got Orlando (DVD) from the library, so we're going to watch it tonight for inspiration.
