So... I've been toying with the idea of trying to run a new gift exchange fest.

...Wait, why are you laughing?

Alright, alright, I am not known as Miss Super-Organisation or Miss Committed (Miss Should-Be-Committed?) but then again, doesn't that give me a... special perspective on gift exchanges? The perspective of the terminally useless? And I've got a whole host of delicious technologies I think would really help out, most of them made by Google, and I'd love to try them. Maybe I will even make use of Twitter. *nods like big interwebs geek she is*

I'd also like to host it Dreamwidth-only, because, well... it's no good me whining about how sexy it is and how everyone should use it, then not actually use it myself. And y'know, it might keep sign-up numbers down anyway, it'd be my very first fest, after all. Although I have invite codes to offer still, and I will be emailing someone about the mass invites DW will supposedly give out to RP comms and such to help 'em move to the dark side.

Anyway, here's the pitch: Weekend Slash. A gift exchange for those with commitment issues. With a weekend to write your gift in, a pretty rapid posting schedule, wham bam thank you ma'am. A short burst of high-pressure excitement with no long drawn-out stress-outs and shame and simply no time for procrastination. Just, yknow, for the fun of it.

I have given it somewhat more thought than that, but that's the general principle. Anyone interested? Anyone boggled by my lunacy? Anyone wanna point out it's been done somewhere already? And most importantly... anyone got any advice?

(BTW the Snarry Holidays reveals are up and this is mine.)

First of all, a quick note: who here uses the Rich Text Editor to write entries? Anyone? Because I don't, but I switched to it to see if I could make a poll, and EVERYTHING EVER BROKE. This has been my experience every single time I have tried it. Pah.

Well, anyway. Some thinky thoughts on fandom participation. )

So I was wondering... am I alone in this? When was the last time you read the HP books? And would anyone be interested in some sort of canon project? A read-along or something? A fest?
