Marvey Secret Santa 2017 - Kicking It Off

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! Welcome, dear Marvey shippers, to Marvey Secret Santa 2017!

For everyone new to this – and isn’t it amazing that there are new people every year?? –, here’s a quick run-down of how it works…

It’s a Secret Santa, that means:

It’s a fandom gift exchange for all kinds of lovely Marvey gifts: fanfic, fanart, gifsets, manips/edits, fanvids etc.

How Does It Work?

  • You sign up by filling out our sign-up form. Just copy & paste it into the submission window and fill it in there. What you send us in your sign-up form will determine both what kind of gift you’re going to create and what kind of gift you’re going to receive, so please read and fill in carefully! :D
  • We will then match you with a recipient for whom you will create your gift.
  • Once you’re finished, you submit your gift to us via email or, if     necessary, via a file sharing platform (see submission guidelines).
  • We will then post your gift on this blog during the week from Christmas Day (Dec.,25th) to New Year’s Eve (Dec., 31st) for your recipient (and for everyone else because we believe in sharing *g*) to savor and enjoy.
  • The big Secret Santa reveal will take place on January, 5th. We will then post a list all the Santas involved and that list will tell you who created which gift.
  • After that, you’re free to post the gift you created anywhere else (your own tumblr, your lj etc.).

And this is the timeline:

  • Sign Up: open now until September, 30th, 2017
  • Assignments Sent Out: October, 5th, 2017 (latest)
  • Gifts Due: December, 15th, 2017
  • Gifts Posted: December, 25th, – December, 31st, 2017
  • Secret Santa Reveal: January, 5th, 2018

(See? Beautiful, easy and, of course, fun!)

People who have taken part in this exchange before may have noticed that we’ve decided to go with a slightly different posting schedule this time around. We’ve received feedback mentioning that the individual gifts “drown” a little when all of them are posted on the same day, especially on a day that is a day of industry and festivities for many.

So, this year, we’ll spread the posting of gifts over a week (Dec., 25th, - Dec., 31st). We’ll queue the gifts and shuffle the queue, just like we did the last two years, but – depending on how many of you take part in this this year – we’ll only have just a few gifts posted per day.

We hope this works for you!

The last two years Marvey Secret Santa were a huge success and we’d love for as many Marvey shippers as possible to join Marvey Secret Santa 2017! The more the merrier!

So, don’t hesitate! Sign up today! And please share! Reblog and spread the Marvey love!

You can find more info, the rules and guidelines in the side bar on our main page.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us when you have any questions!

∟ 6x07: once more with feeling >> “I gave birth to a pterodactyl”

There’s something to be said about the secrets that are spilled through songs in this episode. Xander and Anya’s doubts first surface and foreshadow the events of Hell’s Bells.  Tara and Willow have their last moment of happiness before the break up which is so beautiful and Amber Benson shines in this episode.  To cap it all off though, Buffy finally admits through song to the Scoobies that they tore her out of Heaven.  Willow’s face after the realization tells it all.  Also Spike and Buffy have their first real kiss in a truly Hollywood moment.  I listen to the soundtrack more often than I care to admit and the poster is on my wall.  Never has a musical episode played so well than in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I still think it was the bunnies.
