The BZPower Fanfic Exchange 2017

What's better, giving or receiving gifts? Why not both? Not everything has to be an O. Henry story. And why not make those gifts the greatest gift of all, Bionicle fanfiction? We're bringing a time-honoured fandom tradition to BZPower this year with a fanfic exchange.

It's pretty simple. You let me know what you want to write and read, I take that info and find someone wanting to write the sort of stuff you want to read, and everybody gets a-writin'. Then, in late December, you'll post your stories for your giftee and all of BZP to read. You won't know who's writing for you until then, so it's a fun little surprise. They'll most likely be a different person than who you're writing for, though.

As part of the exchange, you'll submit the following info through this form. Once you receive your giftee's details, you'll have until December 26 to write your gift. There will be a couple of check-in points along the way to make sure everything's running smoothly. If you finish early, then great! The party doesn't have to stop there. You can ask me for more people's prompts, or lend your proven heroism to stepping in for someone who can't submit a gift. I may also put out an open call for people to do just that later in November. Please don't post any stories until December 26, though; part of the fun is seeing all these new stories pop up one after the other!

Successfully fulfilling your end of the bargain will also qualify you for tangible prizes. Write a story, get a story, and also get a select constraction set of your choice. Not a bad deal, eh?

Again, to participate, you'll need to fill out this form. If you've got anything to add between now and October 27, just PM me and let me know. After that, though, it's time to get writing!


Rules

1) All stories must follow the BZPower Rules & Guidelines.. Inappropriate or offensive stories will be reprimanded.

2) Bionicle stories and prompts only, please - remember, they're the greatest gift of all! Though this topic is in Short Stories, they can be for any of the subforums (though if you're wild enough to write a full-blown epic, please see rule 5.)

3) If, for whatever reason, you think you might be late or unable to submit a gift, let me know! We can sort through just about anything as long as I know you need a little help. Just leaving your giftee hanging, however, is inadvisable and will carry consequences for you.

4) When posting your story, don't forget to say who it's for! Detective work is not a traditional element of the fanfic exchange.

5) Please don't overextend yourself; a nice short story is fine. At the same time, please make sure your gift is more than a couple of paragraphs. If a prompt really calls to you and you won't be satisfied until you write a whole epic from it, please have at least a first chapter ready to go for December 26. You'll be able to post the rest at your own pace after that.


Schedule

You will have from now to October 27 to sign up for the exchange.

Matches will be sent out before November 5.

You will have from November 5 to December 26 to write and finish your stories.
-First official check-in is November 22; let me know what you're writing, or if you need help.
-Second official check-in is December 10; you should have a draft you can show me.

After December 26, post your stories! Please try to have them posted between December 26 and January 7, or let me know if you won't be able to get on BZP during that time. In that case, I'll send your story to your giftee so they'll be able to read their gift along with everybody else. (You'll have to send your story to me to make sure that happens, though.)


Prizes
Successfully fulfilling your part of the exchange means you get a select constraction set of your choice. More details will be available in December. Thanks to LEGO for the vast bounty of sets!

Cool, I'm game, although that will be conflicting with NaNoWriMo, so that'll be interesting...

This sounds like a great idea!  I'd love to participate!

Just a quick inquiry, though; I went to look at the submission form, and I'm a little confused as to what the "Preferred Characters" field entails.  Could I have a bit of clarification on that, please?

Basically, it's more information to help make good matches. If you really like the Toa Mahri, and a potential reader would really like to read something about the Mahri, then that could be a match right there. You can name specific characters and/or groups of characters, and it'll tell me more about what you're looking to get out of the exchange.
