Let's make July a fantastic month again!
 
 
Hello, everyone! It's that time of year again - Summer/Winter Holidays are about to start, for the ninth time now! It's one of my favourite times of the year - it's been a fantastic fest every single time, with so many wonderful submissions. So let's do it again - and for a small change, let's do it on LJ and DW this year! (Yes, this means we're crossposting everything.)

As usual, here's the deal:

Summer/Winter Holidays Round 9

Every year, during the entire month of July we're throwing a Doctor/Jack party here at [community profile] wintercompanion (and [livejournal.com profile] wintercompanion). During that month, we post new fic and art created to a prompt list kept secret until the month starts. On 1 July, we start posting the created works, and all of the prompts are open for anyone in the comm. Each year, it's been a great opportunity to showcase the really fantastic stuff you all create.

So here's what we're looking for:
  • up to 15 writers willing and excited to write at least 500 words of Doctor/Jack based on specific prompts, to be finished and submitted by 25 June

  • up to 15 artists interested in producing a Doctor/Jack-centric work (wallpapers, icons, banners, drawings, vids, etc.) based on specific prompts, to be finished and submitted by 25 June
(As usual, prompts can be interpreted as strictly or loosely as you like.)

Interested? In the comments, leave us a note telling us:
your name,

your email address, and

whether you're interested in creating fic or art!

We'll email you our secret list of prompts, and you'll pick your top three choices. Once we have everyone's choices, we'll assign everyone a prompt - we'll do our best to match you with your first choice, but we can't promise.

Sign-ups will be open until 28 May - they'll close when it's no longer the 28th anywhere in the world, and assignments will go out no later than 31 May.

Of course we always have a need for pinch hitters for art and fic - life has a way of happening. Let us know if you're willing to join the ranks of those lifesavers! And if you're willing to beta, please check out our beta volunteer post (LJ | DW) to leave your information.

It doesn't matter if you're new to the comm or if you've been here since the beginning. Anyone and everyone is welcome! Feel free to spread the word - the more the merrier. :D

Hey all! In response to a few inquiries we've had lately: yes, we're going to start archiving and crossposting the comm over at Dreamwidth. Stay tuned for more details, and watch for Summer/Winter Holidays sign-ups later this spring!

Amazing [livejournal.com profile] wintercompanion people, we need YOU! Or one of you, anyway. ;)

Which is to say, we need a pinch-hitter for our Summer/Winter Holidays - a person who can write 500 words of Doctor/Jack fic, or create some Doctor/Jack-centric artwork, for a specific prompt. One of our participants has had to drop out, so we're urgently looking for a replacement.

Can you help out? Please leave us your email in the comments, and we'll be in touch. Many thanks in advance!


All sorted, thank you very much! :D

Title: 22 Measures
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] mahmfic
Pairing: 12th Doctor/Jack
Rating: G
Spoilers/warnings: None
Type of Artwork: Fanmix

Short Summary: Jack is a dance instructor for the Nooce Retirement Center. It's supposed to be another normal summer teaching waltzes to the elderly. He plays one of his favorite big band/jazz tunes on the drive to work [1]. Except there's one student who is rather different this year. He's the youngest in the class but the oldest at the same time. He's grumpy, hates waltzes and everyone in the class dislikes him. After playing the first waltz[2], the Doctor grabs his electric guitar and plays a song that wouldn't be out of place at a rock concert[3]. Jack is memorized by this man. He decides to learn more about him. After much protest on the Doctor's part, they become friends, learn about each others past etc [4]. Soon enough they fall in love [5]. They get their freak on [6]. Jack decides that a traditional waltz won't fit for the Doctor. So at the end of the class when everyone showcases the waltz to the rest of the retirement center, Jack and the Doctor waltz to the song Nothing Else Matters [7]. Then happily ever after/hopeful future, yada yada yada XD [8].
