Hey, guys! Since everyone’s receiving their beautiful
KagaKuro fanbooks, it seems like a good time to start up another fandom event!
So buckle up, because it’s time to kickstart the first (of hopefully many)
This is a spring gift exchange for the pairing of Kagami
Taiga/Kuroko Tetsuya! The theme for this exchange is AU. It’s just a little
event to bring the fandom together for something fun~ All of the details are
How This Works!
The event will run from February
to May. A more detailed timeline is found at the end of this post.
After you sign up, you’ll be given
the name/URL of your partner for the event, along with their requests, likes,
dislikes, etc. Partners will be decided at random using an online generator.
After you get your assignment, you have until May 22 to work on and complete
your gift! There’ll be an extension as well.
If you’d like to remain anonymous
for the event, that’s perfectly fine! Please let the admin know in the signup
sheet. We’ll assign you a number (such as Anon3754) to give your partner, so
keep an eye out for a post addressed to you. You can submit your work to us
through email so we can post it for you as well.
Clutch time participants.
Just like Hyuuga in the heat of a match, clutch time participants are our reliable
captains! Basically, if anyone drops out after signups
are complete, clutch time participants create gifts for the intended partner,
so no one goes without a gift! You’ll have a shorter amount of time, but
you’ll receive all of our gratitude and appreciation. <3
You can drop out
anytime that you wish! There’s a preferred date to drop out, so clutch time participants can have plenty of time, but we understand that
things always happen and come up. If you find you just don’t have the time or wish
to participate anymore, please just notify us as soon as possible.
Please keep it to
KagaKuro/KuroKaga only (there’s a section in the signup for side pairings, but
the focus of any work should be on our favorite light and shadow).
The gifts can be any of the
Fanart—must be your own
art, both digital or a high quality photo/scan of traditional are acceptable Fanfics—must total at least 1000
words long Edits/graphics—please use only
Please do not post any of your
works until May 22, the day of the exchange. If any are found before then, the
admin will politely ask you to take it down.
For fanfics, drabbles can be
combined. So if you want to write two 500 word drabbles for two of your
partner’s requests, that’s fine! And if you want to go over 1000 words, that’s
For all NSFW gifts, consensual
works are a must. If there’s any
dub-con or non-con content, the admin will politely ask you to create another
Please check your email/messages and always respond as quickly as you can.
Respect your fellow participants. Feel
free to send your partner anon messages (if they allow anon) to let them know
how your work is going! It’s all about celebrating and enjoying this beautiful
ship together, so let’s have some fun~
Signups are from February 21 – March
Signups will be done using this
Google form! You can also submit to this blog, but please include all the
same information included in the form.
Name: Your preferred name. If you’d like to participate as
anonymous, put ‘Anon’.
Email: So we can contact you, give you your assignment, and check
in with you. Your email won’t be shared or posted anywhere.
URL: Another form of contact if we need, and also so your partner
can send you anonymous messages! If you’re
participating at anonymous, just put ‘N/A’.
Clutch time: Please indicate here if you’d like to be one
of our clutch time participants.
Rating: Give a range of what ratings you would be okay with, and
indicate if you’re okay or not okay with NSFW. For simplicity’s sake, let’s use
the same rating system as AO3 (so G for general audiences up to E for explicit
Requests: Include at least three AU requests you would like! Have
fun with this! Be as broad as you want (childhood friends, canon divergence,
etc.) or specific as you want (though maybe not too specific)! And feel free to get inspiration from other places:
AU lists, sentence starters, and all those other good things floating around.If you’d like suggestions, feel
free to send us an ask!
Side pairings: Any other pairings you like and wouldn’t mind
seeing in your gift. This doesn’t mean they’ll definitely be included, but maybe
your partner enjoys them too and will include them!
Likes: Anything you would be okay with receiving. This can include
your favorite genres (fluff, angst, smut, etc.) or your favorite tropes (fake
dating, childhood friends, etc.) and other things of that nature. As above,
that doesn’t mean they’ll definitely be included, but it might spark some ideas
for your partner!
Dislikes: Anything you would absolutely notbe okay with
receiving. This could be anywhere from ships to tropes to kinks. Please
remember to be polite in this section: no ship bashing, explicit language, or
anything of that nature.
Additional comments: Any questions or concerns you may have that
weren’t included in this form! If you’d prefer contact through Tumblr, please
indicate that here as well.
There are three different ways you can exchange your gifts:
Post them on your own blog. Please
either @kagakuroexchange or #kagakuroexchange so we can reblog your work!
Use the submission box to submit
it directly to us, where we’ll post it for the event. Guidelines for
submissions will be posted later.
Submit it to us through email, and
we’ll post it from @you/anonymous to @yourpartner.
