TITLE: Changing Times
GIFT REQUEST: Not really fussy about the genre as long as it's BJ, the characters are recognizable and they have a happy ending. Would like it to be Christmas themed, but don't have any particular storyline in mind. Sorry it's so vague, but really any bj fic where they wind up together is fine with me.
NOTE: I haven't written QaF in a while, but I make sure to always do this exchange. Wren, I did the best I can, and I hope you like it. Also, this was betaed by the wonderful [ profile] predec2.

FROM: [ profile] lupin111
TITLE: Two Loves
GIFT REQUEST: Video canon-compliant, Feed Me Diamonds by MNDR. I'd LOVE it if my gift vid with have that version of Diamond because it's such a stunning song and goes together with B/J's story imo :) Any AU that has something like B and J as Historic figures and so on.
NOTE: Beta by Xrifree. Oookay. So, first my apologies; I know you wanted a video, but unfortunately, I have ZERO video skills (except for viewing). I had to write you a story instead. I watched the video, listened to the song, and read about the singer’s inspiration for writing it, especially her frame of mind at the time of writing it, and tried to capture that mood in the story – also, you will find some of the lyrics scattered through the story.
The story is based on your other request for an AU with a historical setting. This is definitely AU, and definitely a mix of history and fiction. I seriously doubt that this is anything close to what you had in mind, but I hope that you enjoy it nevertheless. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and all the very, very best for 2017!

FROM: [ profile] kate_anders / Severus_divides_into_H
TITLE: The New Cycle
GIFT REQUEST: angst, hurt/comfort. Justin+Ben friendship. Ben comforting Justin after fighting with Brian or after something bad happened. No character death, no bittersweet endings. If Michael or lesbians are in it, very little of them, or stories that paint them in a negative light. Everything else is fair game.
NOTE: Merry Christmas, everyone :) I hope you’ll all have a wonderful year, and that Brian and Justin will forever live in some parts of your hearts.
As asked, this story has some anti-Michael undertones, though I do think it’s all pretty canon-compliant. It’s AU that happens somewhere in Season 2.
To [ profile] slashluv18 – I hope you’ll like this story! And thank you for an interesting prompt, I love stories that have Justin/Ben friendship :)

Welcome to the 2016 GIFT EXCHANGE!!!!!

This notice is coming out early SUPER so you'll have plenty of time to write, draw, photoshop, vid, or whatever other medium you work best in.

~ The sign up post will be posted shortly.

~ Sign ups will remain open until November 2nd, 2016 11:59pm Eastern

~ Assignments will be sent out by November 10, 2016. I will make assignments and pair you up with your gift recipient.

~ All gifts must be submitted to me at qafgiftxchnge @ with the subject line: 2016 GIFT by 11:59pm Eastern December 29th, 2016. (this will give everyone a little extra time around the holidays)

~ Gifts will be posted December 30, 2016 to January 5, 2017
**If entries are received early, I'll start posting on the 26th of December
***if you end up giving multiple gifts, we'll sort out a delayed submission.

~Fic gifts do not need to be epic multi chaptered sagas. 10,000 words MAXIMUM. Drabbles are welcome.

I hope many of you will participate. Last year there were 42 gifts given, so come out, come out wherever you are, old fans and new! Let's see if we can top that phenomenal number from last year!

This exchange will be held on Livejournal. I will post limited reminders to Insanejournal, but will not be cross-posting everything to IJ. If someone on IJ wants posts to continue there and wants to take on that responsibility, let me know. I'll also be spreading the word on Tumblr, so hopefully that will add even more participants into the mix.


  • Please don't sign up if you may not be able to fulfill your gift. IF an emergency happens and you can't participate, please let me know as soon as possible so I can beg someone to stand in so that no one goes giftless.

  • Please, NO Brian/Michael, no MPREG, no RPS. Everything else is fine.

  • Gifts cannot be posted in your own LJ, IJ, tumblr or elsewhere until one week after they are revealed here.

  • All submissions have to be new and complete, everything else would be just plain rude. Find more rules about submitting your worksHERE )

  • All submissions must be stand alone pieces created specifically for this fest. You may not submit a part of a work-in-progress as your submission, nor can you include fic/art/graphics that you've already posted elsewhere.

  • And don't forget to put the work behind an lj-cut.

Submitting Your Work

All submissions should emailed to qafgiftxchnge @ by the due date (Dec 29th).

In the subject line of your email, please include your screen name, gift for: [name], and title. This makes it so much easier for us to find and organize your work.

Please remember to copy, paste, and fill this out to include in your email along with your submission:

Adapt this to fit your needs, such as word count/length.

Please also ensure straight quotes are used when adding links and usernames!!

When submitting a fic:

  • Please be sure that it's been saved as an ".rtf", ".doc", or ".docx" format. Also, please include all html coding (bold, italic, underline) in your finished fic. If you're not familiar with html or don't know what the code is for a specific one, check it out here. I WILL be sending back fics that are not html coded as there have been some nightmares trying to break up posts for fics with giant character counts.

  • There is no maximum or minimum for the gift exchange, but the mods ask that you keep your plot bunnies in control. 100,000 word fics will probably make us cry because we scan each fic for glaring spelling/punctuation errors. If you exceed 8,000-9,000 words (please please don't), the mods will have to break your fic into parts due to LJ character restrictions, and we will need to know where you want those breaks to occur.

  • Multi-chaptered fics will still be accepted, but nothing will be posted until the fic in its entirety is received. So please don't get in over your head if you're not going to be able to finish it by the due date.

  • Please make sure that you spell all character names and places according to their canon spellings. Just ask if you're uncertain.

  • While having your fic beta read is not a requirement, it is always encouraged.

  • The mods reserve the right to ask you to correct any spelling, punctuation, or grammar issues before your fic is posted.

  • If you are using Word to prepare your manuscript, please make sure to turn off smart quotes! Tools >> AutoCorrect >> AutoFormat As You Type >> Uncheck "straight quotes with smart quotes"

  • Please ensure automatic spaces before and after paragraphs are not a part of the document. These spaces should be put in by you manually. This helps when the doc is pasted into the LJ/IL html editor.

When submitting a fanart/graphics:

  • Please include your art/graphic as an attachment in the email. OR the links to where you're hosting them.

  • When submitting a fanmix:
  • Please include a link to your fanmix in the email.

  • Please include any information (artists, titles, featured lyrics) that you'd like to be included with your download link in the body of the email or in a text document.

  • When submitting a fanvid:
  • Please include a link to your fanmix in the email. Please post it 'secretly' youtube or another video hosting site you use.

  • Please include any information (artists, titles, featured lyrics) that you'd like to be included with your download link in the body of the email or in a text document.

  • ***If these formatting guidelines are not followed, you will be contacted and requested to make required changes.*** I will make every effort to match requests with talent. I will also make every effort to fulfill each request. However, if for some reason, your request cannot be fulfilled, I would hope that whatever is substituted will be accepted with gratitude and dignity and with the spirit in which is was intended.

Please feel free to pimp away...and beg all fans to come and participate. Questions? Ask away!

If you're a non-writer and non-graphic maker, leave a prompt below and artists/writers may choose to claim your prompt after assignments are sent out! -no guarantees though!
