*Jan 1st Update: All Secret Santa gifts are due today! If you have not yet submitted your gift and there is an issue with submitting on time, please note the group so that something can be arranged. Thanks to all those who have participated, and happy new year!
*Nov 20th Update: The Secret Santa folder has been opened early to provide for those who have already finished their gift. Submit here: zelda-fan-club.deviantart.com/…. For the rest of you, you still have 41 days to complete your gifts!
*Nov 8th Update: All notes have now been sent out with Secret Santas' recipients! Enjoy your gift making, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. If you accidentally deleted your note from your message box, don't worry! You can still see it by going here: zelda-fan-club.deviantart.com/… .
Thank you everyone for your enthusiastic response to the idea of a Secret Santa event! #Zelda-Fan-Club is excited to bring you this opportunity. Since we want to give everyone plenty of time to complete their gifts, sign-up will go from October 24th to November 1st.
January 1: Secret Santa folder closes, gifts due
Rules(Read before signing up!)
This event is open to both visual artists and writers of all skill levels. Secret Santas will be assigned randomly. This means whom you will receive a gift from is a total mystery- adding to the fun!
Sign-up will be open until November 1st. Once you have successfully applied you will be added to the list of participants (in this journal).
Following the end of sign-up, replies will be sent out with assigned gift recipients and info. Don't tell anyone whose Secret Santa you are until you've posted your gift. Remember, it's meant to be a surprise!
Submit your completed gift to the #Zelda-Fan-Club Secret Santa 2012 folder. Then notify your gift recipient and enjoy their reaction!
All gifts should be posted by January 1st, 9pm EST. Late gifters will receive a reminder by note and be given one week to respond and renegotiate a deadline. If there is no response or the participant is unable to complete their gift, we will enlist the help of an "Angel".
LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS- ANGELS
Angels are artists willing to contribute an extra gift in the case that someone's Secret Santa falls through. All volunteers for this position are greatly appreciated. Please comment on this journal if you are interested.
*Please sign up for this event only if you can commit yourself to completing your gift by the deadline.* We don't want anyone left without a gift after putting effort into theirs! People who fail to post their gift will be asked to refrain from signing up for future group events.

Q. Are OCs allowed?
A. Zelda universe OCs can be included on your form as long as most of the mentioned characters are canon. Please include a link to reference of your character(s) if you do so. This is not an OC-central event, therefore focus should remain on canon characters.
Q. How long should my piece of writing be?
A. There are no strict guidelines for poetry, but short stories should be between 300 and 2000 words. If you make them longer, please try to keep the reading time around 10 minutes.
