This community is based on vm_santa, which is run by the superlative sarah_p. simplytoopretty shamelessly copied her with due notification. The reins have been handed over to pukajen as of November 2009.
Well it's that time of year again: Christmas! Come and play with us. I'm going to open for wishes on November 7th, and close on November 25th. Assignments will be handed out on December 1st. Secret posting can start right via emails to the xfsanta gmail account. Gifts with user names will be posted between midnight on December 24th and January 1st.
All questions may be addressed to xfsanta AT gmail DOT com.
Please format them in the following way:
Name/LJ: So your gifter knows what to call you!
E-mail address: If you prefer not to list it in public, please just shoot me an E-mail with your address and LJ username.
Presents! : Request as many things as you want. Keep in mind, the more stuff you list, the more likely you'll get something you want. Be as specific or as general as you'd like. Let us know if it’s MSR, gen, slash, angst, baby William, casefile, secondary character inner monologue, or whatever else that makes your holiday cheer flow. Please also indicate the highest rating you'd like to receive (PG/PG-13/R/NC-17, or Teen/Adult/Mature).
Please list several different scenarios to make sure we can match you up. If you only want one pairing or character, that’s fine, just make sure that you don’t just ask for Frohike babysitting drunk Mulder season one. There are so many potential times for Frohike to have looked after intoxicated friends.
Presents, The Truth : When making your requests, if you aren’t attached to just one format, please mention it. For example: I would love a vid with Scully doing autopsies OR some hot-up-against-the-wall-sex fic between Deep Throat and Marita. It will up the likelihood of you getting something you really want, as opposed to a bundt cake apology.
I would rather get CSM’s cigarette butts: Character death not your holiday joy? Slash makes you siggy when you’re spending quality time with the parents? Rum in the eggnog hookups gives you hangovers? Please let us know.
Timeline: Matching up specific episodes will be a bit hard, but hate season one? Let us know. Really like ‘Fight the Future’? Happy Hanukkah, have a bees-and-genetically-modified-corn-themed lj. Didn’t watch season the Mulderless seasons? Well, we’ll make sure you don’t get matched up with someone who wants to wants a Dogget/Skinner buddy vid.
What I can do: Wanna write? Just into graphics? Let us know. Like MSR or do you think Mulder and Krycek are the show’s OTP? Here would be the place to tell us if you can write slash, make a shipper vid, or design a swanky new Reyes/Pheobe lj layout.
What I absolutely CAN'T do: Pretty self-explanatory. If you can’t do graphics, tell us. Love to read NC-17, but can’t write it, please, tell us. Angst and Christmas doesn’t give you a warm fuzzy? TELL US! This is supposed to be fun, don’t get something to bring you down.
Are you able to be a back up? Please, let us know. Also, if you’re able to help with some teaser gifts for someone who had real life interfere with their online existence, and will be late in posting. Volunteer away, please.

Once you receive your assignment, you may make "teaser" gifts at any time (but they're completely optional). If you do decide you want to post any small gifts prior to December 24th, don't reveal yourself! Send any teaser gifts and notes for your recipients to me, and I will post them on your behalf.
If for some reason you're unable to post your gift between December 24th and January 1st, please send it to me at xfsanta AT gmail DOT com, and I'll post it for you :).
Requests can be of any type--fics, icons, videos, graphics--just make sure you leave more than one option for your Secret Santa, so they can work in the genre they feel most comfortable with. Remember, these are VIRTUAL gifts. Please, refrain from purchasing anything for your recipient--not everyone has the means to do so, and no one should feel alienated when the real purpose here is to make a gift.
Most importantly, have FUN!
