Let's make sure no one goes without a present this Christmas.
Following along the rules of 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015...here's the break-down:
1) Submit your wishlist. (November 15 - November 30) ✓
You can send me a PM or comment here. If you like, you can mention multiple items. Do you want a poem? Do you want a piece of art, fanfic, or music? Just say it!
If you don't have anything specific in mind, you can make it vague. Maybe there's a particular character you want to see or a genre you like. Whatever it is, mention it and see what happens. Dreams can come true.
To be exact, the deadline is December 1 at 12 AM EST.Caveat Lector wrote:If the request is fandom-related, please at least provide a basic reference for the characters or source material.
2) Check in with Your Work! (December 1 - December 23) ✓
I will PM everyone the name of their partner and their wishlist. Please try your best to complete your present before December 25! This will spare you the stress of rushing to finish and your partner the possibility of receiving nothing. Don't let that happen to you!
3) Get Your Present! (December 23 - 25) ✓TsukiShima wrote: The present can be in any form (if your requester didn't specify them):
- Arts : Fanarts, comics, video, animations, wallpapers, etc.
- Writing : Fanfiction, short story, review, poems, etc.
- Musics : BGM, theme song, lyrics, etc.
- Programming : Short fangame, gui, etc.
- or anything else, get creative!
It's time to play Santa! You're free to post it here or PM your partner personally. December 25 is your deadline. If you haven't received anything by December 30, let me know ASAP.
❆Are you having trouble fulfilling your request? Just tell me. I will check in with your partner and ask whether they can tweak their wishlist. Don't forget to tell me what you're good at doing (i.e. writing, drawing, programming, and so on). If there's anything you're uncertain about (the requester's phrasing, perhaps), talk to me. I'll bring it up with your partner and see if we can't get that little misunderstanding straightened out.
❆ Expect a PM from me once a week, starting December 4. I'll ask about your Secret Santa progress every Sunday evening. But there's no pressure! I just want to hear if everything's going well or if you're in need of any help. But if I don't receive a reply, I'll have to give you another shout-out a few days later. If I don't get an answer after the third time, I'll have no choice but to assume you dropped out.
❆ Do you want to be a back-up Secret Santa? Please do! I would be so grateful. Just send me a PM.
❆ You finished your present in time but can't get into the forums by December 25. It's not a problem! Send it to me. I'll hand it over to your partner for you.
❆ If you want to let me know about your progress, just post here. I only ask that you don't edit one of your previous posts. Otherwise, you'll make it difficult for me to keep track of it. Then, I'll end up sending you a "How you doing?" PM on Sunday, and I'm sure you don't want that. Or do you?
❆ Do you want to drop out? Send me a PM. Like I said, I don't want anyone going empty-handed on Christmas. I or a back-up Secret Santa will handle it!
In short, do your best to finish in time! If you run into any troubles, send me a PM. Most importantly, enjoy yourself. Have yourselves a Merry Christmas!

Dreamgazer wrote:Anything related to my Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces) series.
Aside from the main game itself (which is presently my favorite), this series includes every other game I've made so far (that I mostly used for getting the hang of Ren'Py).
Here's the breakdown:
• Death Room (teaser for Halloween)
• Don't Take This Risk (features a character who will appear in Beauty and the War)
• Ready, Set, Parody! (April Fools' parody)
• War: 13th Day (prequel)
• War: Valentine Edition (rom-com special)
(Note: If there's going to be a romantic element, I like GxB or BxG. )

It doesn't even have to be complete. I just would love to see what others can do, instead of taking what is available for free in creative commons, especially because I'm not really good at GUI, as of yet. Whoever gets me would be credited, obviously, for creating the base. ^_^
For an example of what I'm going for with my game, these are the themes of the plot: demons, angels, magic, a world being destroyed by war, and 3 different layers to the world (the heavens, the underworld, and the surface). Think D&D.
If not a base for a GUI, then I would LOVE to get an opinion/review of some characters from the VN I am working on. I don't really have a lot of like-minded VN fans around me, so I'm not 100% sure if my family/friends' opinions totally count for the vibe I'm wanting people to get from my characters. Plus, I'm more of a copycat artist than a fantasy artist, so these fantasy characters were hard to design and draw. I definitely want to ensure they are good enough that you can tell what they're supposed to be.
The ones I love, that I really want others to love, and want reviews for are these ones:
Kaiden, the incubus-demon alchemist who comes to your rescue as your body guard. He can be kinda bratty, so he gets the nickname "Bratty Bat":

Felix, the wolf-demon guardian of the forest and his wolf familiar, Fernie. They become recruited as body guards, helping you flee through the forests:

Zander, the dragon mercenary that sees you as "innocent" and "adorable" and wants to protect you from the world:

Can be as pretty, comic, or tastelessly offensive as you like. Art/writing/games/music, all is welcome! As long as there is some attempt at historical accuracy. Unless you're drawing fantasy things or ROV, then all goes
