Sign up for the Mob City fanworks exchange!

mob-city-exchange:

Do you finally want some fic about your favourite Mob City pairing? Or a graphic with those song lyrics that fit so well for your favourite character? This is the place where you can get someone to help you out with that. All you have to do is write a fic or draw something or make a graphic for someone else in return.

In order to participate, please

1) follow this blog and/or track #mob city exchange
2) reblog this post and add your sign-up information:

Name:
What kinds of fanworks can you make? (Fanfic, fanart, graphics, fanmixes, fanvids …)
Which characters and pairings are you willing to make a fanwork about?
Which characters and pairings do you NOT want to make any fanworks about?
Optional: Any kinks/themes/genres that you particularly like or dislike to write/draw? (e.g. if you love AUs, if you can’t write/draw porn etc.)

Give 4-6 prompts for the gift you want to receive. Every prompt should consist of a medium (fic, art, graphic etc.), a character or pairing, and the prompt itself (a situation you’d like to see explored in a fic, an idea for a drawing, a quote for a graphic etc.). Write “any” if any medium or any character/pairing is fine.
Optional: Any kinks/themes/tropes/genres that you particularly like or dislike? Anything that triggers or squicks you?

Please remember that this is a very small fandom, so try not to make your prompts too specific because it may be hard for me to find someone who can fill such prompts.

You have until April 7th (next Monday) to sign up. The next day you will receive a message from me telling you who your giftee is. After that you have until the end of the month to complete your fic/art/graphic. On April 30th, post (or link to) your gift on tumblr and tag it with both your giftee’s URL and #mob city exchange. I will reblog your work to this blog so everyone else can see it. If you won’t be able to finish your work, please let me know so I can make sure your giftee still receives a present from someone else.

If you write a fic, it should be at least about 800-1000 words long, not just a 100-word-drabble. Of course there’s no equivalent minimum for art or graphics, but it should be something that you put some actual work and effort into, not something you scratched together ten minutes before the deadline. You have to fill at least one of your giftee’s prompts, but you’re welcome to fill several. The more, the merrier. You can also combine prompts - write a fic with an accompanying graphic or something like that.

Attention: If you change your URL while the exchange runs, please let me know so I don’t wonder where you disappeared to.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. I’m also open to suggestions.

Name: Iris (swallowedkeys)
What kinds of fanworks can you make? fanfic
Which characters and pairings are you willing to make a fanwork about? Sid, Ned, Ben, in any combination, for preference. Could write Ned/Joe, if called for, or Joe/Jasmine, or Sid/Jasmine. Also, as our glorious leader well knows by now, I’m happy to step in and write any and all kinds of things that I don’t ship. That’s how I roll.
Which characters and pairings do you NOT want to make any fanworks about? I’d rather not write Mickey/banana, just a heads up.
Any kinks/themes/tropes/genres that you particularly like or dislike? Anything that triggers or squicks you? You know me, Linn. I’m easy but I probably won’t write porn.

Prompts
1. Fic: Sid/Ned or Sid/Ben or platonic or both, post season 1 fic about what happens next. Sid reacting to Ben’s death, dealing with it. Something about what LA’s like under Mickey’s rule. For preference, I want Ned rising up to take the throne, with Sid at his back. But, y’know, write your own story.
2. Fic: Sid/Ben (platonic or shippy), anything about their life before the series - in New York or after.
3. Fic/art/anything about how awesome Jasmine is. Because, let’s face it, she is the best.
4. Fic./art/anything about Sid Rothman and how he’s so much more than just the sociopathic hitman.
5. Fanmix: anything, character or ship-based, or some kind of music of the era soundtrack.

Any kinks/themes/tropes/genres that you particularly like or dislike? Anything that triggers or squicks you? Not into non-con or mpreg but who is? Honestly. I am a fan of character studies, don’t mind a little misery and dirt under the fingers, a little reality, I guess. And, really, I’ll take what you want to give me.

In truth, the young lord commander and her king had more in common than either one would ever be willing to admit…Both men were unbelievers by nature, mistrustful, suspicious. The only gods they worshipped were honor and duty.

linndechir asked: 4, 8, 9.

4. what are some themes you love writing about?

Betrayal, UST, people being torn between different things they feel that they owe something to. 

8. is there a character you love writing for the most? the least? why?

I really don’t know! I have been in so many fandoms and written so many different characters that I don’t think I have a favourite. Sometimes, writing a new set of characters is rapturously enjoyable - like learning all about a new person, seeing how they feel in your hands - though that can just be hard work. I do really enjoy writing Jon Snow because he is dumb and angsty and torn between the different things which matter to him in life but he’s not my one favourite forever. As for least favourite, I think if I disliked writing someone, I’d probably try and avoid it. I should probably just admit that I have completely failed to answer this question properly. Sorry.

9. a passage from a WIP

This probably shouldn’t count but I recently read over a draft from back in 2012 of a Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy fic I had half-finished and I like it a lot so I really want to get back to it. It’s an AU where things end a little differently for Jim and Bill: they run away together.

"How would that work, exactly?"
"Well, I’d just apply a couple pounds of pressure, snap your wrists. You’re Senior Detective. Think I’m lying?"

After another great episode of JUSTIFIED on FX last night, I had to draw our favorite bad boy BOYD, definitely as part of the success of the show as Raylan Givens.
