Closing notes + Reveal [Jul. 16th, 2008|06:57 pm]
Rikkai Exchange

Hi everyone! :)

Wow. We're totally done with the second round of rikkai_exchange. I hope you've all enjoyed it; it's been a bit of a strange round for me to run, so I appreciate the effort you've all put in even more. Thank you so much.

This round was really intended to be more anjenue's than mine, and it was her enthusiasm that prompted the second round in the first place. Including art was her idea too, and she was responsible for much of the early organisation, particularly sorting out assignments. I'm incredibly grateful for the work she put in, and sad that this was a project she wasn't able to see through to the end. I hope I've carried it off well enough, and I'm sorry for any hitches along the way.

reddwarfer has been providing me with help and advice behind the scenes in the later parts of the exchange, and I'm ever so grateful to her for that -- especially when I was struggling a lot with the exchange due to other events.

Massive thanks go to yuki_scorpio and reddwarfer for pinch-hitting.

Once again, I hope you've all enjoyed the exchange, whether you've been a participant or an observer! ♥


That said, all that's left is the reveal...Collapse )

Thanks again for your hard work, all!

In Conclusion... [Jul. 13th, 2008|08:11 pm]
Rikkai Exchange

Hi all. :) We're at the end of the exchange now, and I'll be posting a master-list of who wrote what later this week -- perhaps Wednesday or Thursday. Thanks so much to all of you who participated, and to the people who've been reading and commenting to support the authors and artists. If any of you have been thinking about reading but haven't yet, I really recommend checking out the stories and art that've been posted. There's all sorts of stuff so I'm sure you can find something you'll enjoy.

Can I also remind anyone who hasn't yet commented on the gift for them to please do so? Someone worked really hard to produce something for you; it's only polite to thank them! :)

If anyone wants to take a guess at who wrote and drew what, I encourage you to leave guesses in comments on this post. :D A couple of things were produced by pinch-hitters, just to complicate matters; there's a list of who actually produced something for the exchange below. Have at!

[Fic] Moments of Grace (for Lechaco) - part 1 of 2 [Jul. 11th, 2008|07:23 pm]
Rikkai Exchange

giving_ground
Title: Moments of Grace
Author: giving_ground
Recipient: lechaco
Pairing/Characters: Sanada/Yukimura, Niou/Yukimura
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: General Unhappiness.
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Konomi Takeshi. And I'm not making any money from this stuff.
Summary: A story about loss of direction and purpose, about dealing with your future not being what you expected it to be, and about making mistakes. Breaking things and putting them back together.
Notes: I think this is quite a tangled sort of story, and I hope that's okay with you, lechaco; I really hope you enjoy it, for all its oddities (this was my shot at exploring the way the characters' pasts affect their present, and fic set in the future, and fic focused on things other than tennis - hope it worked out). Thanks to everyone who kept pushing me forward on this one, anyway! Sorry for being such hard work. :)

Rating: NC17
Warnings: Gratuitous amounts of swearing?

Summary: When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.
