Birthdays for July!

Hey everyone - it's time to start thinking about those July birthday gifts you promised people, or would like to make now you have had more time to think on it!

banner-birthday-candles.jpg




First off we have the lovely guineamania on the 14th! Guinea's wishlist

Then on the 17th, one of our newer members, scribble_myname has a birthday! Scribble's wishlist

Another late add in is for for the 20th when sio (or dracosdreamer) celebrates! Sio's wishlist

From there, we go to my good friend thtwzjustadream's birthday on the 21st! Dreamy's wishlist

And, late edit, sharing the 21st with Dreamy, we have another new member, clarahow, joining us on this challenge! Clara's wishlist

We move right along to the 28th for kapuahi's birthday next! Kapu's wishlist

And our last birthday person for July is another newbie, xxgingerchanxxx, on the 31st! Ginger's wishlist



So if you haven't already started, now's a good time to start making any gifts you want to give for this month! I will post again on each of their birthdays so you can link or post your creations for our wonderful July birthday people.

For those of you who haven't managed to give many gifts yet this year and/or those who want to up your word count, this is a perfect time to pull dig into your creative spirit and see what you can do! If you want to check out any other people whose birthdays haven't yet arrived in 2015, go to the main post here, and scroll through the list of people taking part.

I'd especially like to see those who got some great gifts themselves but have yet to find someone to give to (or you've just not had time) check out and plan for the upcoming giftees! What goes around comes around and all that! You can slip through the link at that post and offer up a few recipients if you wish, or just wing it as the months come along; it's all good! ;-)

No worries, I'll add you in! Choose a few people you might like to give gifts to later in the year, and comment if you like, otherwise diary them/start work/watch out for them as their months come up and get ready to create! ;-)

Sounds good!! (Oh just a notice, I hadn't realized that I'd already commented, so the comment is actually here instead of the link you have. I just changed it a few minutes ago.

Thank you!!!

OOps, sorry! Didn't realise I'd missed adding you to our list when you commented before. Link above now fixed! ;-)

Out of curiosity, are you the one who requested for Catastrophe/Knockout for Rarepairs Fest? I'm afraid I couldn't remember the username but I did come across a request for that pairing, and I know you do some fic exchanges.

Ummm I don't remember, but honestly, it's quite probable. I am indeed doing that fest, actually! I don't remember what I requested, though. I just hope I'll be pleasantly surprised :)

Don't worry, I wasn't assigned to you - so you'll still be pleasantly surprised :)

Shh...don't want anyone to narrow it down!! Besides, I'd only not be surprised as to the author, I'd still have no idea what you were doing :)

Yep, which is why I'm telling you, it's not me :P since you can actually narrow it down based on my fandoms if you knew I was assigned to you.

I got assigned to a friend for Every Woman and he accidentally spilled the beans before the reveal ~.~

Jul. 4th, 2015 09:45 pm (UTC)
hehe indeed. oops for him! I don't know that I'm friends with anyone in any of my fests...except for the ones with letters, I sort of start to feel like it since I'm looking at their journal to read their letter and get a feel for them, yanno?

Jul. 4th, 2015 09:51 pm (UTC)
Hahaha I made my friend sign up for Every Woman because nobody was gonna offer for any of my requests and I didn't want to end up as a sad lonely pinch hit.

And I ended up writing an Allydia fic, which may or may not be something you might enjoy based on your list of favourite pairings. Do you like non-Explicit femslash?
clarahow
Jul. 4th, 2015 09:57 pm (UTC)
oh my goodness that's kind of hilarious actually

indeed I do enjoy Allydia (is that not on the actual list? it should be) and yes, I enjoy non-explicit! I used to only let people know that I read non-explicit work because I was a gay Catholic teen ashamed of ~being sexual~ and shit I mean I also was sexually active IRL so I don't know why hiding the fiction was so important to me but w/e so I straight-up had secret folders, etc. for all that. It's only last year I basically said 'fuck it' and decided that I wasn't gonna keep hiding that I was interested in reading and writing sexytimes.
Also because of that instinct to hide, writing it isn't all that easy for me, so it's something I'm pushing myself to do because I want to get more comfortable writing those sorts of stories.
Thanks for the rec!

It is on the list! Which is why I thought of the fic, because I just finished getting the promos and everything done today.

Because you said you wanted Explicit, and femslash, and I was thinking like I can't make you a gift if that's the only thing you want!

Ah, I see.

Yes, I'm up for anything!! Any rating is good. That's just the highest rating.

(I'll actually go see if I can make any clarifications in my comment post.)

thanks for considering it :) *bats eyelashes*

You're good! I have added you into the schedule and will fix links above now (under Sio, btw)

Oh, and thanks for adding a comment about who you'll make for - that is super-awesome! ;-)

So many!! :D

Let's see if I can squeeze a few more - mutual fandoms permitting, of course - into my ridiculous July schedule. Which already has 50k words of required fic.

It is one of our busiest months!

You're fantastic; thanks so much for offering! Good luck with the required words and don't stress if you don't manage the gifts ;-)
