It's beginning to look a lot like ... The end of the year!

Well hello there!

It’s is fast approaching that time of year again! That’s right! SWAP OF JOY! Are you as excited as I am? HA!

The 1_million_words Swap of Joy is a chance for us to do for each other. It’s an opportunity for each of us to say thank you for all the cheering and support that is what makes this comm wonderful! It’s an occasion to stretch a bit and MAKE EVEN MORE WORDS! And you know how I feel about more words! ;)

This year we are going to change things up a bit. Instead of H and I deciding what who gets who, we’re going to have anyone who wants to participate post a Joy list. You have from now until the end of October 15th to post your Joy list (the form is below). We ask that you do not use links in your Joy lists, and use a rough limit of 10 options. Comments are screened so go wild!

Some time on the 16th we will post the Joy lists without names, and we’ll be asking you to claim a Joy you’d like to fill. We will ask you to list 3 Joys you could fill (first, second, and third choice). Claim comments will also be screened. Joy claims will be filled on a first come first serve basis. We will PM you each to let you know which Joy is yours to fill. We would like to have you each think about sticking a toe or an entire foot out of your comfort zone. Wouldn’t it be fun to say thank you with a new adventure for yourself?!?

The other change is that we are going to be asking you to sign up for posting dates as well. We are looking for the Joys to be posted from December 1st to December 15th. And we’re not going to tell you who’s Joy you’re making, we’re going to let you each shout out that it’s you when you see the post! That's right! It's a Secret Swap of Joy!

1 – If you sign up with a Joy list you must claim a Joy to fill.
2 – Joy fills can be written or graphic. Written Joy fills should be a minimum of 1,000 words. Graphic Joy fills should be a minimum of a wallpaper or 10 icons.
3 – Joy fills must be beta read. And to be fair, we’re asking that if you make a graphic, you run it by someone as well.
4 – Each Joy should be an individual post to the comm and not a comment (you can post elsewhere and post a link post at the comm.).

We will be looking for pinch hitters as well, but we’ll hit you up for that when we do the claims.


Sign ups are now closed :(

Monthly Challenge for October!


It occurred to H and I less than a week ago that we had no challenge in mind for this month. But we've come up with one heck of a plan now!

So every day we're going to give you a list of artists and a separate list of songs that you may do with as you like. Let them inspire you to make up a fic about a character that hates one of the artists, make a wallpaper from the song's video, or make your own video! Whatever way they make you creative then let it flow!

October is Kaige's Birthday Month!

And because she's the only one on the books for this month, I am officially declaring a Flash Challenge for the whole month! You guys know how much our fearless leader loves words, right? So I am challenging ALL OF YOU to make her something! Be it graphic or written words, the fandom matters not! Because the wonderful KAIGE LOVES ALL THE WORDS YOU MAKE!

All I ask is you write at least 100 words or create one icon or more/something bigger, in one of her favourite fandoms OR one of your own, and dedicate it to Kaige! Post it before the end of October, either here in the comm, or elsewhere and link us, so we can all appreciate it, and Kaige can squee even more than usual!

Go on, you can all take time to make Kaige's month the best!!! ♥ I LOVE YOU ♥, MY DARLINK, and so does this comm!!! Right, everyone? (you can PM me if you have any questions)

Her actual birthday is the 9th, in case you need to know that.
