Die x Shinya ~ Christmas Gift Exchange

Hey guys :3

Since Christmas seems to be coming faster every year, it’s time to start thinking about presents already!
Hopefully you haven't signed up for all of the fic exchanges going on, since this year  melinen & I would like to try this in dxs_love as well. Because this pairing (and the whole fandom too) needs more attention & loving!

Is there something you have always wanted to see in a Die/Shinya fic? This year someone might write it for you as a Christmas gift! And in return you'll make someone else happy by writing them some of this pairing to read during the holidays.

About this exchange:
- all fics must have Die x Shinya as a main pairing (Die x Shinya x ? is allowed, too)
- the minimum amount of words is 1000 words
- the fic doesn't have to be Christmas themed

About the dates:
- You have until 23.10. to sign up
- The assignments will be sent out by 26.10.
- We will send the gifts by e-mail to their recipients on 24.12., so you have to send them to us by 17.12. so that if someone was unable to write their own, a pinch-hitter can be assigned. However, if you know in advance that you cannot write your fic after all, let us know as soon as possible!
- On 25.12. you can post the fic you have written in the community, or we can do it for you if it’s easier for you.

To sign up, copy&paste and fill out the below. To receive a fic just the way you like it, please be specific!

What would you like to read (genre, prompts etc.):
I prefer plot over porn, though sex scenes are sometimes nice to read too, if they really feel like they belong to the fic.

If the fic is not AU, I prefer romance and beautiful realism. With AU, I have a strong preference of things like pirates, geisha & samurai themes and also hurt/comfort. Both AU and bandfic are just as good choices. Though, with bandfic I want to see the other members as well, at least glimpses of them from time to time.

When it comes to writing, I want it to be meaningful in some way, or beautiful, or making me think. Maybe something in present tense and/or first/second person POV in the mix?

Animals! Preferably in a little bigger role, too. :D

Some prompt ideas:

1) Die kidnaps Shinya.
2) Die wants Shinya, so he courts & teases him until Shinya can only promise to be his. (my favourite idea :D)
3) Die and Gackt both want Shinya, but how can Shinya choose only one of them? (another favourite idea)

What you DON'T want to read:
→ death
→ angst (except in tiny doses if it fits the plot)
→ rape
→ kinks; blowjob/handjob/light role playing/shower sex etc are okay, but anything above that are not my cup of tea
→ unhappy end
→ cheating
→ hating on a band member(s)
→ PWP

Rating preferences (in writing and reading):
In writing, I am not a smut writer so I guess R's the limit.
In reading, anything goes. (Though, of course I would like to find at least a kiss or a touch in there somewhere, but if G works for your fic then it works for me, too. ^^)

Do you have other secondary pairings you would like to see in your fic? And if you absolutely don't want other pairings and/or crossovers, make sure to mention it as well:
Anything between Kyo, Kaoru and Toshiya (especially KaoruxToshiya)
GacktxMana
and threesomes with DxS are god too, especially DiexShinyaxGackt would be lovely :D

Do you have a preference for who is top/bottom? (This goes for other pairings too.):
No real preferences, though a part of me still loves the old idea of Shinya being bottom (especially in fics from the beginning of Diru). But either way is good, and variety is even better. :D

For the fic you'll be writing, is there something you are NOT WILLING to write?:
Death, rape, heavy kinks, torture, stuff like that. Severe angst, as this is a Christmas thing. Mpreg. Am not much of a horror or scifi writer, either.

Can you pinch-hit?:
Maaaaaybe. If I have enough time that is. :P

Can you beta read?:
Not a native speaker here, so no.

What would you like to read (genre, prompts etc.): fluff, smut, happy stuff, I really like a bit of drama but in the end love wins out. I would like non AU something realistic. With some smut would be nice too. It can be hardcore stuff or just nice lovey and slow ^_^ If there is AU I would love a vampire story XD Im obsessed with them but less twilight more buffy style please.

What you DON'T want to read: angsty stuff, sad endings, character death and the like. I have enough drama at the moment so I would request something nice and sweet to bring my mood up.

Rating preferences (in writing and reading): anything but NC-17 preffered

Do you have other secondary pairings you would like to see in your fic? And if you absolutely don't want other pairings and/or crossovers, make sure to mention it as well: Eh other pairings are cute I like KyoxRuki or KaoruxToshiya even if its only a mention its good in my book ^_^ If you want to add more characters to the pairing its good with me too. Voyeur stuff works for me too xD

Do you have a preference for who is top/bottom? (This goes for other pairings too.): Die top XD definatly

For the fic you'll be writing, is there something you are NOT WILLING to write?: Rape, Torture, Character death, unhappy endings,

Can you pinch-hit?: Pinch hit? ... I dunno what if is lol xD

Can you beta read?: Yup yup
12th-Oct-2011 02:47 pm (UTC)
Ahh we should have explained this! Sorry!

Pinch-hitting means that if someone for some reason isn't able to finish their fic in time or at all, someone else will get their assigned person and write a fic to this person instead.
15th-Oct-2011 01:20 am (UTC)
Sure I could do that ^_^
12th-Oct-2011 09:51 am (UTC)
omg this is exactly what we needed!!!signing up and I hope I will manage to give somebody their gift! XD

What would you like to read (genre, prompts etc.): fluff, romance, a bit of comedy,
What you DON'T want to read: angst, gore, rape, crime, AU, etc. ...just keep it real that's enough..
Rating preferences (in writing and reading): I can read anything but I'm not really able to write porn sorry:/
Do you have other secondary pairings you would like to see in your fic? And if you absolutely don't want other pairings and/or crossovers, make sure to mention it as well: I don't really want other pairings but since it's Diru it's ok to mention the other guys lol XD
Do you have a preference for who is top/bottom? (This goes for other pairings too.):....well, maybe Shinya as a bit more dominant one would be something I'll enjoy XDD
For the fic you'll be writing, is there something you are NOT WILLING to write?: again I'm not good at porn and any other things like BDSM,S&M, etc or any other things I mentioned I don't wanna read.
Can you pinch-hit?: I dunno.

LJ-user name/e-mail: tomaattikopio, laoya@live.fi

What would you like to read (genre, prompts etc.): Anything warm, preferably in dim lighting or rain, at a comfortable home or in nature, parks, night time city center. In general, while I like my guys mature and the story to be rather tame in terms that I prefer normal, everyday life instead of alien attacks and overflowing drama, I'm not opposed to a little twist and turn every now and then - or even a big twist and turn, as long as it doesn't turn the fic into a gun slinging action movie.

What you DON'T want to read: Sad endings, deaths, cruelty, unchristmassy stuff. Christmas is depressing as it is. D:
Also, AU. I don't bend that way.

Rating preferences (in writing and reading): Any.

Do you have other secondary pairings you would like to see in your fic? Usually, none. If some, I prefer Kyo/Kaoru.

Do you have a preference for who is top/bottom?: My preference is that roles are not set. Fluctuation keeps things interesting. The character can prefer something all they like, as long as the preference isn't given by God or set in stone at birth so that nobody ever questions it once. You get the idea.

For the fic you'll be writing, is there something you are NOT WILLING to write?: Umm. None. Willing to try anything once. My characters tend to fall in love with each other no matter what circumstances though, so I can't write very plausible and realistic hating.

Can you pinch-hit?: Technically yes. Practically, a shy positive maybe.

Can you beta read?: No.

Mo!
24th-Oct-2011 05:20 pm (UTC)
just to make things clear: What you DON'T want to read: unchristmassy stuff. Christmas is depressing as it is

eli saako ficissä olla jouluisia juttuja vai ei?

LJ-user name/e-mail: gigikay gomiho.91@gmail.com
What would you like to read (genre, prompts etc.): Something winter themed, doesn't necessarily have to be Christmas but I ADORE snow scenes or fireplace scenes, stuff like that. I'm not picky when it comes to AU or non-AU.
What you DON'T want to read: I don't mind drama and angst but I don't want any death and would like a relatively happy ending
Rating preferences (in writing and reading): Any but if there's smut I would like it to be relevant to the story and not just smut for smut's sake
Do you have other secondary pairings you would like to see in your fic? And if you absolutely don't want other pairings and/or crossovers, make sure to mention it as well: I don't mind secondary pairings or crossovers so if you want to put them in, go ahead. If you want to keep to Dir en Grey I like Kaoru/Toshiya and/or Kaoru/Kyo
Do you have a preference for who is top/bottom? (This goes for other pairings too.): I like it better when Die tops. For the other pairings I don't care much
For the fic you'll be writing, is there something you are NOT WILLING to write?: Scat, vore, the REALLY kinky stuff
Can you pinch-hit (= if someone can't finish their work, you'll take over & will be writing two fics)?: I can't promise it'll be GREAT if it's too last minute but yeah
Can you beta read?: Yes

finally having a little bit of internet so i can see this post. if i hadn't checked so far into my flist i would've missed it completely :/



LJ-user name/e-mail: rheakurokawa
What would you like to read (genre, prompts etc.): oh, generally i read everything and like to be surprised by just good writing, not caring much about details, but there are things i prefer. I like bandfic, slice of life fic and i love and am very interested in fics that depict humanity and where the author puts a lot of thought and work into character development. i like stories where the author researches, whether on canon details and makes references at something someone said in an interview or somebody else said about him or about some incident that happened to them etc (aka research into the band's and character's past - material is enough and if you need something more, orchestrated-chaos.org is always a good place to find things) and also when the author researches for the story in general. i like mentions of little things that bring the story and its character more to life, details from the Die or Shinya's life (you can invent them too, they don't have to come from some magazine or be something we all know, just let your mind play and think why someone would own a certain object or how they might do a particular thing, a little tick or a habit they have, all little things that tell the reader more about who they are as a character). i like places and geography and believe spaces (whether buildings or cities or rooms etc) affect people and people affect spaces as well so i like to get glimpses of that too, but it's not a requirement to have in a fic, just perhaps soemthing to think about. as said i'm very interested in character portrayal and development so all these things in my mind help with that. what someone eats, drinks, listens to, how they do their laundry etc etc... you know what i mean. what makes them uniquely them

i think work is an important part of a person's life and so i like references to that too. i guess, out of it all it comes across that i like realism very much in fics, which doesn't mean i need angst for it to seem real. i think life has some shitty moments definitely but i don't define reality by the amount of pain and drama one suffers. there are good moments too. what i mean is, i like realism and i like balance. so, please steer away from stereotype, clichees, melodrama etc. other than that you can write pretty much anything you like. as a guide, i love bandfic, seeing other bandmembers too, i like mentions of other people they know, staff, neighbors, some random person on the street etc, i love touring fic, i love going to places, inside and outside, i also like future!fic (where the band is in a couple of years), and i like references to childhood (they didn't meet in childhood so don't write little die loves little shinya cause that's AU) as well as references to family and old age. if you ever read what i write you know what i'm obsessing about. you can find other things i like in my memories too, whether for deg or for other bands. but that doesn't mean i want you to write in my style, or some other person's style. write in your own style and be yourself. let the things above be a guide and picck those who resonate to who you are but also use them as an invitation to look for things you don't necessarily look for usually as a writer and just write. keep asking your story "what if". and one more thing (that goes with realism), keep in mind their ages. i also like themes, as in, the fic is about something (acceptance, loyalty, friendship, love, etc etc)
21st-Oct-2011 11:29 am (UTC)
What you DON'T want to read: as said i can read all sorts of things and have enjoyed all sorts of things. i am not interested in AU though and not interested in straight out porn. i don't read to fap. (sex is welcome in the fic though, but not as an excuse for a story). am also not interested in medical type and very graphic descriptions of sex. focus on the story and the characters and what you want to transmit.


Rating preferences (in writing and reading): i can read and write all ratings. but am not interested in pure PWP not as a writer or reader. am also not really interested in kinks

Do you have other secondary pairings you would like to see in your fic? And if you absolutely don't want other pairings and/or crossovers, make sure to mention it as well:

tricky thing this.. haha. i highly doubt the realism of another pairing existing inside the band to be honest, but since i am a huge Kaoru/Toshiya shipper, i wouldn't mind seeing them too. It doesn't have to be them as a pairing though. there could be moments where KT interact in a more biased way, without it being stated whethr they are together or not or they can be not together at all. your choice. i don't mind either way. if they are together though, try to find some way to make it work realistically

Do you have a preference for who is top/bottom? (This goes for other pairings too.):

I don't.

For the fic you'll be writing, is there something you are NOT WILLING to write?:

no crossovers, no humor, no pure AU ( i can insert some supernatural elements if the story requires it or if i'm so inspired, but they would still pretty much be based on reality or the canon of the band's history as we know it). no kinks


Can you pinch-hit (= if someone can't finish their work, you'll take over & will be writing two fics)?: unfortunatelly i have no time for that
Can you beta read?: unfortunatelly i have no time for that

For the fic you'll be writing, is there something you are NOT WILLING to write?: smut (I can write hints about sex, not like entire scenes). And pretty much the same things I'm not willing to read.
Can you pinch-hit (= if someone can't finish their work, you'll take over & will be writing two fics)?: Since I'm responsible for this whole thing, yes
