dear trick or treat exchange creator

Dear trickortreatex Creator!

first of all - happy Autumn and hello! ♥ I am very excited to be getting to know you in the near future; thank you so much in advance for creating my gift - I am very much looking forward to reading or seeing it. What I would like you to know is that, to me, it is most important that what you write or create is something you are comfortable with and that you enjoy writing/creating the art; you will find a list of things I love below, but these are merely suggestions, because no matter what direction you end up going to, I sure am going to love it!

GENERAL:
I love angst. Anything angsty, really, angst is my crack and my favourite thing to read in fanfiction. Angsty art is also amazing, though! I have to say that, while I adore dark pieces in general, I am not fond of the extremes; so I'd prefer if there were no highly graphic stuff - no heavy torture or kinks (including PWP, m-preg, mutilation, etc) please, if possible! What I do not enjoy as much either are extreme AUs (i.e. modern!AU for ASOIAF, which is something I highly avoid - I didn't request it, but it's always a good example) and crossovers, nor do I like very fluffy fluff in the written word a lot. It doesn't have to be all darkness, destruction and gloom (unless you want it to be!), but 100% fluff is not something I particularly enjoy reading. Looking at it is great, though, I love adorable fluffy artwork! I do have a very soft spot for hurt/comfort and hints of romance in an angsty/dark piece, though.

So, you see that I generally prefer Tricks over Treats, even though I did request Treats as well. Again, though, whatever you choose to go with, whether it's a Trick or a Treat, I am super excited to receive my gift and will absolutely adore it!

Whatever you do, it also doesn't necessarily have to centre around Halloween or Autumn itself - you can go into any direction you like, but it would be perfect, if it could somehow capture the feel of it... In case that makes any kind of sense?

Anyway, onto the fandoms! ♥

Thank you so much for creating for me in advance, and as I said, what- and whoever you choose to go with, I will surely love it! ♥

Dear Darkest Night Creator! ♥

First of all - Hello! ♥ I am very excited to be getting to know you in the near future; thank you so much in advance for creating my gift - I am very much looking forward to reading or seeing it. What I would like you to know is that, to me, it is most important that what you create is something you are comfortable with and that you enjoy working on it; you will find a list of things I love below, but these are merely suggestions, because no matter what direction you end up going to, I sure am going to love it!

GENERAL
GENERAL:
I love angst. I mean, duh, this is a dark exchange, haha. Anything angsty, really, angst is my crack and my favourite thing to read in fanfiction. I have to say, though, that, while I adore dark pieces in general, to read as well as to write, I am not fond of the extremes; so I'd prefer if there were no highly graphic stuff - no heavy torture or kinks (including PWP, m-preg, mutilation, etc) please, if possible! What I do not enjoy as much either are extreme AUs (i.e. modern!AU for ASOIAF, which is something I highly avoid - did not request that, but it's always a good example) and most crossovers. I do have a very soft spot for hurt/comfort and just tiny, delicate hints of romance in an angsty/dark piece, though.

Limiting myself to just 20 tags (I know, technically 40) was more difficult than I believed it would be, but... I think they give a pretty good idea of what I generally like and look for in my dark fics - basically, they all reflect the psychological horror aspect rather than the gore (Which, again, please... no.), so everything similar to these tags (again, limiting myself was hard!), and similar to that pattern... It's all fair game!

And now, onto the fandoms! ♥

Again, though, I want you to be happy with what you create - you are the creator, and you decide on what to do or where to go. What matters the most is that you enjoy writing and creating. I really cannot wait to see what you come up with!

Stock Christmas Present

"have yourself a merry little christmas... let your heart be light..."



HOLIDAY CARDS ARE OUT! <33333 I mailed them on Thursday afternoon and am SO proud of myself there, not even gonna lie, haha. ♥ So, all of you who requested a card should be receiving mail soon! ♥ Hopefully at least a few of them will be here before Christmas (also, apologies to my Jewish friends for missing Chanukah entirely! Eep!), so let's cross our fingers! ♥

Also, if you haven't requested a card yet but would still like one, it's not too late! Simply fill out the form in my Holiday Card Post, and I'll send out a second batch early-to-mid next week! ♥

And don't forget to link me to your holiday_wishes lists, in case you have one! ♥ Here is mine, because somehow I messed up the link in my latest post, which is obviously just here in case you're interested in knowing what I wish for, haha. I think it goes without saying that I ask none of you to get me anything at all <3333.

SPEAKING OF MESSING UP, I am currently HIGHLY frustrated with our mail situation. Like... I know that Christmas and pandemic are an insane combination, I mean, even I ordered 98% of my stuff online when usually I find a relatively good balance between that and real life shopping, and ADORE Christmmas shopping in malls, but this year as just an online year for known reasons, haha, but... What is absolutely beyond my understanding is the fact that our mailman only delivers mail mamyvbe once, twice if we're lucky, per week. And then it's all backlog basically, like magazines that are suddenly out-of-date because they weren't delivered on time, and just... It's all very clear that the huge stacks of mail we do find aren't all from that one day they were delivered. I did already call the customer service of Austrian Post to inquire what was going on, and one day later I got a call back where they told me they'd already had taken care of the situation, had a "talk" with our mailman (eep!) and that from now on I would get mail Monday to Friday as usual again, so... Cross your fingers, please, haha.

This totally throws me off in my timing, though - I'm not only waiting on parcels for myself, there are also quite a few Christmas presents outstanding. I am still waiting for two presents for my parents (one for Mum and one for Dad, haha), one part of Marie's present, three (!) parts of Pat's, and one of a Secret Santa parcel that I had to send in an incomplete state because I was way post deadline, promising in the card that the final part would come in a separate parcel. I am only semi-worried about my parents' presents as long as they get here by Thursday, and here still is a tiny chance that I might get the remaining two (and a quarter) parcels sent out on time because they're all shipping domestically, so I still have a couple of days leeway before Christmas Eve, but stiiiiill. Sigh.

It's jut insane, haha, the one Christmas I am actually on top of things in a way that I barely recognise myself, it's something I cannot influence at all that puts me behind, so... There is quite the irony involved, haha. I will not give up hope to finish everything on time present- or at least parcel-wise until at least... Wednesday, though!

ANYWAY, last weekend was a total Christmas Bakery weekend! ♥ And this one is as well! I have changed into my Minnie Mouse Christmas PJs (I only wear nighties to sleep, so I got those to wear around the house when I don't have to go out haha) that I am not intending to take off - except at night - until I need to exchange them for a leotard again or have to leave the house, and am very much in the middle of an intense weekend of baking and tidying up! ♥ More baking, less tidying up, though, haha. I made so many kinds of cookies already, 13 baking tins yesterday alone, today it was maybe 8 or 9, and I thiiiiiink I wanna make a second batch of our very own cinnamon stars that are some of our favourites <3333. Also still gotta make 1-2 batches of roasted almonds despite having made one already today, but we give them out as presents, so I've made so many kilos of them it feels like! Other than that, knowing that mum will make the Vanillekipferln because I'm too scared of them still, haha, I should be mostly done! I did attempt to bake some Lussekatter for Swedish Lucia last Sunday, but the recipe I used was different to the one last year, and they ended up being super dense, unfortunately. A pity, but well.

Honestly, though, I am SO proud of myself, honestly, because I remember that in the pat couple of years I always made SO many plans to bake such a huge variety, and then ended up panickedly rushing down half-portions of two sorts (regular cookies and the cinnamon stars) on the 23rd or Christmas Eve afternoon, haha, but now... Now, we have so many of them and I am so excited! <33333 It's only the 20th! ♥

PICTURES UPCOMING! SO MANY PICTURES.





[follow the divine smells]

Baking Gingerbread <3333








Lussekatter! Taste was awesome, texture a mess.


Spitzbuben, Linzeraugen, awesome cookies with apricot marmalade, however you may call them!






Nussbusserln! Hazelnut Maraoons, I think you can call them!


Kokossbusserln! Coconut Macaroons!




Some of our favourites in the making: Cinnamon Stars. <333




<333333


They have an Insta filter on them, but it still looks very close! ♥ SO GOOD <3333. gonna make a second batch to glaze, because we love eating them without it too, but I do wanna try the glaze again, haha, so... YAY MORE CINNAMON STARS! <3333


Attempting Russian Bread Alphabet Biscuits. I am... Not very talented with the piping bag, as you can see, hahaa.


Slight progress!


Not as good as the ones we buy, but it was a nice attempt!


Roasted aaaalmonds in the making <333.






Regular cookies <3333.


BALLET COOKIES!





It's pretty crazy to think that it's the Fourth Advent Sunday already - time passed SO fast! ♥ I still have two days of classes left, and then I'm on Christmas break at last! YAY! ♥ Very much needed, honestly. ♥

Mum and I are gonna buy the Christmas Tree tomorrow (since I am off Mondays on my virtual schedule) - SO EXCITED! - and I just cannot wait to pick it, and to put it up <3333. We won't decorate it until Chritmas Eve, but we're definitely gonna put it up and position it as soon as we get it, or only a little bit after that, depending how tired we are and how tidy it is already, oops, haha. But I am honestly sooooooo excited <3333.

I have also already received my Reddit Secret Santa Card (a cute self-made Nutcracker one! It may not be super pretty, but I really appreciate the thought put into this <333), aaaaaaand the first part of my AviClaus Secret Santa present from my dear gelsey! ♥ She gave me an immensely generous LUSH Gift Card that I cashed in right away into the "Winter Garden" Gift Box as well as the "Polar Bear Plunge" Bubble Bath that I will put under the tree and not use until Christmas! THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN, JASMINE, SUCH A PERFECT PART ONE! <333333

Between classes and baking I've also very happily been enjoying Christmas baths, and reading! I just finished "The Nutcracker Mice" for my Ballet Book Club which was REALLY cute, and, well, we all know I will happily jump onto anything ballet and Nutcracker, haha, so... My spirit just keeps on growing and growing and growing. ♥ ALSO, I bought a Disney Christmas Cookbook that I very much need to study in more detail soon! I just wish it was going to snow in Thursday, or before, or before AND on Thursday, but I'm afraid there won't be a White Christmas Eve, sigh. Siri actually just told me it was snaining (snow-raining), but looking out of the window proved me otherwise, haha. There might be a White Christmas Day, though, because it looks like it's gonna snow there, so... CROSS YOUR FINGERS! <3333 We haven't had a White Christmas for so, so long, unfortunately.



[have yourself a merry little christmas]

I mean, they kind of have six different kinds of cookie dough on them now, but I AM STILL NOT TAKING THE MOFF, HAHA! ♥ Unless to briefly wash them, maybe.


The best slippers <333.


THE BEST CHRISTMAS STORY CD <3333.


Reddit Card!


Christmas through and through. ♥


Also in my hair!


HOT PUUUUUUNCH <3333.


THESE ARE AMAZING, NGL.

LOVE IT <333333


Christmas Bath Delight. ♥



HAPPY FOURTH ADVENT SUNDAY <33333.


ANYWAY, before I ramble more and start gushing over how I'm finally watching Miracle on 34th Street (the 1994 one) which is my ultimate favourite Chritmas movie and that I always wanna watch as close to Christmas as possible because it's just so very, very special an dear to me, have a Christmas survey that I snagged from sictransits. ♥

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
WRAPPING PAPER!

2. Real tree or Artificial?
Reaaaaaaal. ♥

3. When do you put up the tree?
Usually we put it up around the 23rd and then decorate it on the 24th and then it gets "revealed" when we celebrate on Christmas Eve, but I think this year we'll be a tad early and put it up tomorrow or on Tuesday! It's still only going to get decorated on Christmas Eve, though <333.

4. When do you take the tree down?
Around the 6th, so Epiphany, sometimes the week after. I never like that, haha! So let's definitely not think about that just yet.

5. Do you like eggnog?
I've never had it actually because you cannot et it here... I should try to make it myself, since the last time I started an attempt I failed miserably, haha.

[the remaining questions]6. Favorite gift received as a child?
I cannot decide, I've received so many, many wonderful gifts, I just couldn't possibly pick one! ♥

7. Hardest person to buy for?
My Secret Santas, haha? Because I never know what to expect, and some just give you ZERO info.

8. Easiest person to buy for?
My parents! The hardest thing about shopping for them is that I run out of money before I can get them everything I want to, haha, so I always have to limit myself!

9. Do you have a nativity scene?
Yes! A small one we always have on/in our tree, and also a bigger one that I finally want to build up again this year! We haven't had up forever!

10. Mail or email Christmas cards?
Mail for sure.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received?
This box of ancient weird Vermont (?) fishing pier merchandise including an old teddy bear with a creepily sentimental story from an imgur Secret Santa a couple years ago. That was fun.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie?
Miracle on 34th Street <333333.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?
Usally around very early December up until around the 20th-22th, sometimes I still get a thing or two on Christmas Eve, but this year I started in November, and by the end of it was mostly done! Entirely done by the 10th-ish, I think.

14. Have you ever re-gifted a Christmas present?
Pretty sure I haven't, not a huge fan of re-gifting, ngl. At least not for Christmas!

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?
Our family recipe Vanillekipferln and Cinnamon Stars. <3333

16. Lights on the tree?
Yes of course!

17. Favorite Christmas song?
"Maria durch ein Dornwald ging" will always be one of my favourites. ♥ I also love "Do You Hear What I Hear", and many more!

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?
STAY HOME!

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Donner, Blitzen, Prancer, Vixen (?), Rudolph, and... Errrrr... I'm lost, someone help me, please!

20. Angel on the tree top or a star?
Staaaaaar. Angel right beneath. ♥

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?
Christmas Eve!

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?
Too many people in the shopping centres, haha. Also, those who are only here for the alcohol on the Christmas Market, instead of enjoying the atmosphere!

23. Favorite ornament theme or color?
Nutcracker! Colours red or silver or gold or rose or everything, really, as long as it's festive <333.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner?
Oven-baked salmon on spinach. No idea when that happened and became our tradition (or at least when I decided it was going to be a tradition, haha!), but I don't ever want to miss it on Christmas Eve!

25. What do you want for Christmas this year?
Anything Russian, Disney or Ballet themed, Dancewear, Lego Harry Potter Sets, Pandora Charms, or gift cards! ♥

AVI CLAUS' SECRET SANTA FRIENDZY 2020! (HOLIDAY EXCHANGE + FRIENDZY!)



AVI CLAUS' SECRET SANTA FRIENDZY 2020


Hello to an incredibly exciting thing for the second year in a row! ♥ Last year, I hosted a delightful Secret Santa Friendzy, which I took over from the phenomenal phenomenal's version of it back in 2018. I did also take over the rules and basic information, as well as the form, even if with a few minor additions - so if you haven't participated last year and it looks familiar to you, that's why! :D

I have always adored Secret Santas, and I really hope that some of you will be just about as excited about this as I am; even if you won't participate in either the friending meme part or the Secret Santa one, I'd be incredibly happy if you could share it, so it reaches as many people as possible! ♥

WHAT IS THIS, EXACTLY?
♥ An LJ (DW Users are also welcome, so share this on DW and LJ! :D) wide Secret Santa Exchange.
♥ A friending meme.
♥ An international exchange, but with the option to have gifts sent directly to your recipient from the site you ordered (i.e. Etsy or Amazon), to save you as many shipping costs as possible. Personal packages are encouraged, though, of course! (Please do consider, however, that shipping to certain countries may be limited these days, so resorting to direct shipping is definitely something to be given a thought!)

THE RULES
❄ Fill out the application below. It will serve as both friending meme questionnaire and the info your potential Secret Santa receives, should you participate!
❄ Go and make friends, have fun! ♥
❄ If you want to participate in the Secret Santa, fill out THIS Google form. This is how you provide your address! Everything will be handled with the utmost discretion.
❄ You need to fill out both the Google form AND the questionnaire - one is for the official stuff, one for the fun part!
❄ Your gift should be at least around $10-15 in value; there is no upper limit, of course, but that is highly up to you.
❄ Please check the timeline below - and follow it! Ideal case, everyone has a gift by the beginning of their holiday. (Note that Chanukah starts on December 10th this year!)
❄ Once you get your present, post about it in your LJ or DW, in a way that your Secret Santa (who hopefully signed the present with their name) can see it!
❄ If you sign up for the Secret Santa Friendzy, please share this in your LJ/DW - that way as many people as possible can participate! ♥
❄ Please drop me a PM to confirm your match as well as once you've sent your present. I will be chasing after you if I don't hear anything, but only to a certain extent. Let's be fair and ensure that everyone receives a gift!

TIMELINE
☆ Sign-ups will be open until November 25th. The friending meme will be running for as long as possible, but Secret Santa closes on that day.
☆ I will send you your matches via LJ (or DW) PM on November 26th!
☆ Please have all presents out by December 5th if possible, but December 10th at the very latest. We gotta consider postage delays and other possible hiccups this year in particular!

dear yuletide author

Dear yuletide Author! ♥

First of all - Hello! ♥ And Happy Holidays! ♥ I am very excited to be getting to know you in the near future; thank you so much in advance for creating my gift - I am very much looking forward to reading it. What I would like you to know is that, to me, it is most important that what you write is something you are comfortable with and that you enjoy working on it; you will find a list of things I love below, but these are merely suggestions, because no matter what direction you end up going to, I sure am going to love it!

GENERAL
GENERAL:
I love angst. Anything angsty, really, angst is my crack and my favourite thing to read in fanfiction. I have to say, though, that, while I adore dark pieces in general, I am not fond of the extremes; so I'd prefer if there were no highly graphic stuff - no heavy torture or kinks (including PWP, m-preg, mutilation, etc) please, if possible! What I do not enjoy as much either are extreme AUs (i.e. modern!AU for ASOIAF, which is something I highly avoid - obviously not applicable of Yuletide, but it's always a good example) and most crossovers, nor do I tend to read very fluffy fluff in the written word a lot. It doesn't have to be all darkness, destruction and gloom (unless you want it to be!), but 100% fluff is not something I usually very much enjoy reading... Unless there is some depth to it! I do have a very soft spot for hurt/comfort and hints of romance in an angsty/dark piece, though.

And now, onto the fandoms! ♥

Again, though, I want you to be happy with what you create - you are the author, and you decide on what to do or where to go. What matters the most is that you enjoy writing and creating. I really cannot wait to see what you come up with!

first of all - happy Autumn and hello! ♥ I am very excited to be getting to know you in the near future; thank you so much in advance for creating my gift - I am very much looking forward to reading it. What I would like you to know is that, to me, it is most important that what you write or create is something you are comfortable with and that you enjoy writing/creating the art; you will find a list of things I love below, but these are merely suggestions, because no matter what direction you end up going to, I sure am going to love it!

GENERAL:
I love angst. Anything angsty, really, angst is my crack and my favourite thing to read in fanfiction. Angsty art is also amazing, though! I have to say that, while I adore dark pieces in general, I am not fond of the extremes; so I'd prefer if there were no highly graphic stuff - no heavy torture or kinks (including PWP, m-preg, mutilation, etc) please, if possible! What I do not enjoy as much either are extreme AUs (i.e. modern!AU for ASOIAF, which is something I highly avoid - I didn't request it, but it's always a good example) and crossovers (except for maybe a Narcissa Malfoy / Catelyn Stark or Druella Black / TV!Morticia Addams fic because those would be amazing), nor do I like very fluffy fluff in the written word a lot. It doesn't have to be all darkness, destruction and gloom (unless you want it to be!), but 100% fluff is not something I particularly enjoy reading. Looking at it is great, though, I love adorable fluffy artwork! I do have a very soft spot for hurt/comfort and hints of romance in an angsty/dark piece, though.

Below you will find the relatively basic information about my requests - and I think my requests when it comes to Spooky/Seasonal/No Theme should be relatively logical when it comes to the fandoms... Just as an example, how cool would an Addams Family piece set on Halloween be? ANYWAY. Again, I am incredibly excited to see what you come up with, and I'll absolutely adore it! ♥

AVI SKELLINGTON'S SECRET PUMPKIN FRIENDZY! (HALLOWEEN EXCHANGE + FRIENDZY!) REMINDER!



AVI SKELLINGTON'S SECRET PUMPKIN FRIENDZY 2020


HELLO, LOVELIES! ♥ This is your Friendly Friendzy Reminder! ♥ Because time flies like crazy, we are now LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY FROM THE SECRET PUMPKIN SIGN-UP DEADLINE! I have no idea how that happened, but here we go, haha. ♥ Obviously, the friendzy will remain open for as long as participants keep it alive, but sign-ups for the exchange end on September 15th. I have a delightful bunch of pumpkins already, so it will definitely happen, which I am particularly excited about, but the more, the merrier! ♥

Even if you don't want to participate in either, I would be super grateful if you could just share it and spread the word, so it reaches more people! Let's get this going again for the final couple of days! ♥
