a geek in such the wrong way


OMG, failing so badly! Thank you, oh fearless leader for kicking me. I had completely forgotten it was a new month and I had people's birthdays coming in early May. And May is a big month too, so I've stuck the 'kick me' sign on my back and you may all berate me for my slackness. *hangs head in shame*

Yes, there are FIVE of them! I know there are people out there who will be able to create a gift in double-quick time, but for those of you who may find it takes a little longer, please offer them late if need be. It's all my fault, but to look on the bright side for wanderlustlover and heffermonkey, this may mean your birthdays last longer! And because I have been such a slacker, and haven't even managed that many gifts so far this year, I am offering both of you a short fic of your choosing, so please prompt me with fandom/pairing/prompty thing in the comments here and I will attempt to have something done for you before the end of May, if not on your actual birthdays!

For everyone else reading this post, please check out the wishlists and dates below, and offer up some goodies for our lovely birthday people ON the appropriate date (or late, as previously discussed). I am about to put up another post for you to link any gifts for wanderlustlover, and will post also for the others on their actual birthdays (or a little early since, as most of you know, I am in the first country to get each sunrise) for you to place/link any of their gifts. If the giftees follow those posts, they will not miss a single present!

First off, and most importantly since the birthday in question is the 3rd May, is the ever-wandering wanderlustlover. Wishlist:

Types of gifts wanted (Words, icons, banners, wallpapers, etc): Words, Icons, Banners, Podfic
Main fandoms: Hawaii Five-0, Haven, Once Upon a Time
Genre/style, subject etc: Everything really (but I'd really like to never get only pwp in something)!
Prompts and/or special requests: Love, relationship, research, canon shoutouts, connecting things no one did before

Following on Wander's heels is the delightful heffermonkey on the 4th May. Wishlist:

Types of gifts wanted (Words, icons, banners, wallpapers, etc): Words / Icons / Wallpapers
Main fandoms: Stargate SG1 / Hawaii 5-0 / Stargate Atlantis
Genre/style, subject etc: Slash, Happy endings, Kink, Angst, Au, Apocolypse, Slave!verse, BDSM, Jack/Daniel, Mitchell/Sheppard, Danny/Steve, Sam Carter, Team!fic
Prompts and/or special requests: I'm happy with anything :)

Then, phew, we have a bit of a breather before our irrepressible witchyemerald joins the fun on the 18th May! Yay, Witchy! Wishlist:

Types of gifts wanted (Words, icons, banners, wallpapers, etc): Lets spell it out together A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G.
Main fandoms: Teen Wolf, Harry Potter, Hawaii 50, Merlin, NCIS (an not in any order)
Genre/style, subject etc: Gen or Slash. I will tell you I have trouble enjoying 1 person, and anything gory. Stay away from scat, gore, and watersports and you would be fine.
Prompts and/or special requests: I can tell you some of my favorite tropes are: pretend boyfriends/husbands/mates or forced to; Case fic; Magical AU (for the non-hp or Merlin ones); Creature AU; hurt!comfort; awkward confessions, But really ANYTHING!

Then, we move on to our exciting and enthusiastic hanorganaas on the 19th May! Wishlist:

Types of gifts wanted (Words, icons, banners, wallpapers, etc): Words or even Fan Mixes
Main fandoms: Stargate Atlantis, Whoiniverse (I think Torchwood/DW fit together), Hunger Games, Supernatural, Hawaii Five-0
Genre/style, subject etc: Kink, Hurt and Comfort, Fluff
Prompts and/or special requests: Go wild, but if you do kink I like handcuffs, blindfolds and gags
Squicks: Mpreg and Death

And finally, but never last, is one of our most loyal and lovely members, tkeylasunset on the 31st May! Wishlist:

Types of gifts wanted (Words, icons, banners, wallpapers, etc): Banners, icons, words
Main fandoms: Hawaii Five-0, Star Trek Reboot, Sleepy Hollow, Avengers movie
Genre/style, subject etc: I'm open to anything. My pairings are Kirk/Spock and Steve/Danny. The rest of my fandoms are non-sexual in nature. Could be why I don't write them as much? Hmm...
Prompts and/or special requests: None what-so-ever. Except I LOVE this idea!!! Thank you!

And there you have it! And, may I say, just in case I am so slack that this happens again (I'm setting up my calendar next, so hopefully not!), June birthdays start on the 2nd with amaryllisssa, and I'll get a post up about all of them shortly before the end of the month, so you have a bit more time to get started on presents!

Now, in case you're new and you don't know how this all works, go here for the main post. You can still sign up too, even if your b'day is past for this year, as we're looking at doing it all again next year.

If you're not sure on what size gift is expected, the only rule is: THERE ARE NO RULES FOR SIZE! Be a Size Queen and make it ENORMOUS, or just offer a wee something; whatever you can create! It's all up to you, as long as you think the recipient will like it.

Apologies for the slackness once again. I will be better (I hope) in future! HAPPY HAPPIES! ;-)
