It's that time of year again!
It has become an annual tradition in Shiver to host a gift art exchange for Halloween. If you're interested in participating, we encourage you to sign up below.
1. Fill out the form and sign up below by October 7. Sometime on the weekend of October 8-9, we will PM you with your partner for the exchange. If you wish to join after this date, you must contact Divine Providence and we'll try to figure something out. On October 31st, you can post your creations in the "Off the Island" forum!
2. For the Halloween exchange, we really encourage people to draw fanart. (The Winter exchange is more fanfiction in nature.) If you absolutely don't want to draw, you are welcome to write a story instead, but it still must be completed by October 31st.
3. As this is the Halloween exchange, all fanart should be spirited in nature. We encourage participants to draw characters in Halloween costumes, whether they are period or not.
4. Artwork or fanfiction must be PG-13 (i.e., game appropriate) in nature.
4. If you'd like to use other characters in your story or picture beyond the one requested by your partner, you MUST get permission from the other characters' players. Some people might give blanket permission for their characters to be used for the sake of the challenge, but if you think the story is questionable in nature or if you're not sure if it's okay, please contact the player and ask!
Requested character: (You may request more than one, but your partner will only draw or write about one)
Do you give permission for any of your characters to be used in other stories for the challenge? If so, please list any that are okay for other people to use. If you'd rather be asked for permission, you can specify that here too!
And as an addition this time around, we are really asking people not to sign up unless they intend to complete the gift exchange. In the past, we've had lots of people get screwed over because they spent a really long time on someone else, only to get nothing in return because someone flaked. If you sign up for this exchange and don't carry through, you will not be allowed to participate in the big Secret Non-Denominational Present Giver Exchange for the Winter Holiday of Your Choice or Lack Thereof.
