You'll have until December 18th to complete your gift and then on December 24th all the gifts will be revealed at the community. It should be a lot of fun. A lot of skewers have signed up and you may maked skewed requests, so don't hesitate to check the exchange out. You don't have to be a member of the community to participate.

Over at profiler_fans, an affiliated community I mod at, we're having a Secret Santa Exchange. It's a Profiler themed gift exchange in which people sign-up and exchange gifts of fics, fanmixes, icons, vids, etc. A number of skewers have signed-up including myself and my lovely co-mod empty_marrow.

You're given an opportunity to request certain characters or ships for your gifts and to list what you're comfortable giving - so you may put in requests for Jack/Sam, Jack/Grace, Jack/Frannie, Jack/Sharon or if you're in the mood for something else entirely, you may ask for it. You don't have to be a member of the community to join the fun! Anyone who loves Profiler is welcome!

Check out the 2008 Profiler Secret Santa Sign-Up Post and take part!!!

This is the time of year that I start coming up with Challenges for the next year. I'd love to have some suggestions.

If you'd like to volunteer to come up with a challenge and run it, just comment to this post and we'll set up a month and I'll help you with it. Or if running a challenge sounds too intimidating but you have an idea that you'd like me to use, comment to this post or email me.

Also, since roman_romantic pointed out that I haven't signed up for the current fanfiction challenge and I can't really give prompts to myself, I've commented and anyone in the comm who wishes to give me a set of Halloween or Fall prompts may do so here.

We haven't had much participation in challenges lately but I've noticed people running drabble memes in their journals, so I thought we'd try a drabble meme challenge :o)

Comment to this post with a skewed pairing and I'll comment back to you with two prompts. You may use one or the other or even combine them.

Since it's autumn, I'll give you fall or Halloween prompts. You may specify which you'd prefer or just see what I give you. I may give you a word prompt like - pumpkins, a picture like - a pumpkin patch, or even a song - like perhaps something that figured prominently in a horror film like Dead Things from American Psycho 2 - not great examples but you get the general idea.

If you think you'd like more than one set of prompts, you may request up to 3 sets or 6 prompts intially. If you complete some of them, you're welcome to come back and request more. If I give you a song prompt, I'll try to give you a link to the lyrics and I'll give you an MP3 so you can hear it and I'm posting the obligatory statement that this is meant as a sample and that according to RIAA guidelines you should delete it in 24 hours, etc.

As always, please follow the posting requirements found here

This challenge runs through 11/7 when a new challenge will be announced.

Comment with any questions.
Title: Shattered Illusions
Author: M. Elizabeth Ravensblood
Rating: NC-17, language, violence, sexuality
Warning: Non-Con between Jack/Samantha and very graphic violence
Pairing: Jack/Samantha
Summary: For two years, Sam has been dating Albert Newquay, unaware of his true identity she pines for a man she thinks doesn't really exist. A spurned proposal leads to violence and a romantic evening turns into something dark and ugly. Post Season 3, Jack never showed up and Lucas killed himself.
Author's Notes: This is for my lovely friend moonvoice who had been craving some Jack/Samantha non-con. I tried very hard to write something that has a lot of psychological complexity and that could take the characters to a very dark place without making them unredeemable. The result was a very long and dark tale that is probably my darkest piece to date. The rape in this story is very graphic and as realistic as possible - it is about violence and not about sex. I tried very hard to capture the mixed feelings of love and hate a woman feels when someone she loves betrays her in the worst way possible.

This is the final installment of Shattered Illusions. Previous Parts: Part 1 & Part 2

Neither spoke on the way to the hospital and Samantha felt strange sitting next to Jack in the small space with the deafening silence.Collapse )
