sv holiday fic exchange?  
Hey everyone! So, I pimped out a holiday gift exchange recently. That was multi-fandom, but it got me thinking: has there ever been a Smallville fic exchange for the holidays? I know that there are ship centric ones, but an overall SV one?

If there isn't, would anyone be interested in having one? It's our last season and I thought it'd be fun, because I don't know what's going to happen to this fandom after the show ends.

Obviously, it'll be a lot of work and I probably can't do it alone, but I just want to see if I anyone would be interested in participating, should I decide to run one (only if someone else isn't doing one already, of course).

Any suggestions/comments/advice would be much appreciated, especially from those of you who have run this type of thing before.

That would be great. I'm afraid I'm of no use concerning any information about fic exchange in the smallville fandom (as you know, I barely am in the fandom since I mostly ship Clark/Oliver). I've participated in a secret fic exchange once last year for christmas. A smallville one would be nice! I think you should start asking around in the SV fandom, perhaps with a poll, to see if there would be people interested in doing this. I sure would be ! :)

I think you should run it, if anyone, you should do it. And I'd be more than happy to help you if need be :)

Yay! I'm glad I am not the only one who would be interested in this. :)

Good idea, thanks! I think I will do a poll to figure out dates, specifics, etc. :D

I probably will run it. As for the help, we'll see. I'm trying to go for people who are not going to participate to help me with this. But I appreciate the offer.

Sounds fun, but I take way too long to write to do so on demand. :/ I could make a banner if it's not at a super busy time for me though!

It may not be limited to fic. I am still trying to figure that out. But banners would be needed, at least to promote it. I may take you up on that offer, thanks! I guess we'll see how your schedule looks when I finalize this, and if you're too busy at that time, I understand. :D

I've seen quite a few exchanges but none specifically for the SV fandom as a whole that I remember. Though admittedly I'm not a part of a lot of SV commnuities, just a few. Though I really should go in search of more....

BUT I think its an awesome idea. I just signed up for the crossover exchange one and I just finished with the Chlollie exchange and I'm super excited for both. An SV would be awesome. And I think a lot of people would be interested (myslef included). If you do do one, I'd totally be willing to help out if you'd need it.

One suggestion and this is just an idea, feel free to impolitely say no, but you might want to do more than just fic.It would open it up to a lot more people. You could also include graphics (though you'd want to make sure that there was a certain amount required so someone doesn't end up doing like a 10,000 word story and someone else only gets a header), vids and maybe even fanmixes. The more options people have the more that would probably be willing to sign up.

Same here. All the ones I've seen are ship specific. I used to be in more SV comms, but I removed a bunch after I came back from hiatus.

Yay! I'm glad to hear that there's enthusiasm and interest. I am going to see if I can figure out some specifics but I may take you up on that offer.

You know, I did think about that, but I wasn't sure, because I don't know how to make it even. I've seen people get screwed over that way, and I was just worried on how to make it fair. But I know that it will allow more people to participate so I will keep it in mind. Maybe take a poll. Thanks! I appreciate all suggestions, since I've never done this before.

Love your icon btw. Cassidy is gorgeous.

I took a stroll through dcu_fandomguide, and didn't see anything specific to SV as far as a holiday exchange. And that list is pretty extensive, so if I don't have anything like what you're looking for over there, then it probably doesn't exist yet.

I like the suggestion of making it a multi-fanwork exchange, to include the artists, manippers, vidders, podficcers, etc. :) Don't know if I'd have much time to help out, but I'm good for organization and whatnot.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for a holiday exchange!

ETA: On second look, there's clexmas, but that's obviously just a Clex thing. :p

Oh yeah, there are ship specific stuff. I am pretty sure there used to be a Chlark one. There is also a Chlollie exchange, and I know the DI runs something holiday related too. As far as I know, there's no general SV one. :)

Thanks for looking! :)

Yeah, the person above you suggested that too. I just don't know how to make things equal, you know? But I'll definitely think about it.

Thanks! I'll probably make a poll soon. I want to give people as much time as possible to sign up, and work on their gift, especially since NaNo is going to be taking over lives in November, lol.

I haven't heard of a general SV fic exchange, but I'd be interested in participating I think. :)

Yay! That's exciting to hear. :D

I love the idea! I think it should cover fics and vids and art and fanmixes and manips and picspams and anything else that people can come up with! Don't know exactly how to match people up but I'd be more than happy to help you organize lists or whatever.

Yay! This makes me happy. :D

Yeah, I think I may end up expanding it. I just want to make sure it's even, you know? And I appreciate the offer to help. I may take you up on it, once I get the details straight. Probably I'll have a longer poll soon.
