Title: The Magic Number

Summary: Cody comes home from college for the holidays.
Notes: Sorry I'm late! I had some technical problems with posting here last night. Anyway, this was written, obviously, for the prompt "Cody comes home from college for the holidays." This is also the first fic I've ever written for Shelter, so thanks to the Mods for hosting this challenge and getting me off my duff and out of lurker-ville!

Enjoy, or send raspberries!

Title: Formal Attire
Pairing: Zach/Shaun
Rating: PG
Word Count: 882
Note: Written for the holiday fest 2011 and the prompt Spiked eggnog makes Zach think it’s a really good idea to kiss Shaun under the mistletoe at his publisher’s Christmas party.

Summary: When the invitation arrived, the letter-pressed, heavy card stock, handwritten name and address should have been enough of a hint to Zach that this wasn't going to be like any Christmas party he had ever attended.

They would make it!

Cody didn't leave them alone, not for one second. He had let Zach drive him to Tori and it had turned out to be a bad idea. So he had to keep a close eye on them!

It's almost the end of our posting period for this Holiday Fest! However, since Dec 31st falls on a Saturday, I'm going to extend the posting period for one day so that you have the entire weekend to post. So, unless you've contacted me for a couple days extension, Holiday Fest 2011 fic are due by Sunday, January 1st.

If you haven't already done so, or if you'd like another, you may still claim a prompt at the Prompt Claims Post.

It’s time to start sharing the love, everyone! Today’s the first day of our exciting gift giving period for Holiday Fest 2011! *bounce* I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I can’t wait to see all the lovely Shelter goodies on offer.

Please feel free to post your fic or graphics anytime during the next two weeks. Don’t panic if you’re not ready right yet, because you have until the 31st to post. (Or to claim another prompt. *puppy eyes*)

Please include the prompt in your header so we know what you wrote, and if you tag your own fic, use the {challenge} holiday fest 2011 tag, as well.

Thank you!

The prompts are in, now it’s time to get creative!

All types of fannish creations (fic, graphics, vids) are welcome; just comment here to claim a prompt (or two). You may claim as many prompts as you like, more than one person may claim each prompt, and you may claim your own prompt. There is no length requirement.

So that you can find it again, this post will be tagged {challenge} holiday fest 2011.

Submissions will be due at the last two weeks of December, during the period from December 18 - December 31. Don’t post them before then; these are holiday gifts to each other/the fandom.

I guess that’s it for the rules; on to the prompts.

Happy writing! *g*

Today’s the last day to submit prompts for Holiday Fest 2011. If you’ve got any last minute prompts, get ‘em in now!

We’ll take general (word or phrase) or more specific (scenario) prompts. The only requirement is that your prompt must have something to do with the Holiday/Winter Season.

For more info, or to submit a prompt (or a dozen), head on over here.

I’m happy to say that it looks like we have some interest in holding another Holiday Fest, so yay for that! And the consensus appears to be that we should stick with the Holiday/Winter Season theme.

Now it’s time to hit us with your prompts. We’ll take general (word or phrase) or more specific (scenario) prompts. The only requirement is that your prompt must have something to do with the holiday/winter season.



I’ll get us started with a few prompts so you can see what I mean:

Eggnog
Mistletoe
Sleigh Ride
Snowed In

Shaun wants to make this big romantic gesture for Zach at Christmas, but it falls through. Shaun is disappointed, but Zach tells/shows/both him how much he doesn’t mind.

Spiked eggnog makes Zach think it’s a really good idea to kiss Shaun under the mistletoe at his publisher’s Christmas party.

Zach and Shaun are in NYC (or someplace else with snow) over Christmas (for a book signing or art gallery show) and they go on a romantic sleigh ride through the city.

Zach and Shaun get snowed in for the holidays.

(Please note that you do not need to duplicate these prompts because they ~are going on the list. *g*)



Now it’s your turn! Comment here with your holiday/winter themed prompts, and I’ll collect them all in one list for claiming.

Dates to Remember:

Prompt Submission Period: Sunday, November 6 – Saturday, November 19
Claim Post Goes Live: Sunday, November 21
Claiming/Writing Period: Sunday, November 21 – Saturday, December 31
Posting Period: Sunday, December 18 – Saturday, December 31

(The posting period has been changed to allow people who will be busy over the holidays to post earlier.)

~Please remember that you will be able to write fic, create graphics, vids, etc, so keep that in mind, also, when you submit your prompts.

~You will not be required to claim a prompt in order to submit a prompt, nor do you have to submit a prompt to claim a prompt, and you may claim your own prompt. Whew!

~There is no limit on the number of prompts you may submit. However, if you come back at a later time to submit more prompts, please do so in a new comment to this post rather than in a reply to your previous comment. This makes it easier for me to make sure I don't miss any.

Okay, now you guys say something! *g*
