1st-Oct-2016 07:50 pm - This is the POSTING POST!!!
Bridge Snowing
Alll-righty, then! It looks like the prompts are being considered and sorted. So now what remains is to sign up for a posting date, the day you will post your work for the world to enjoy.

If you haven't officially joined the comm, do it now. We don't post for you. Hell, you know how this works; no need for us to do it.

You may post your work here, on your LJ, and/or on another site, such as AO3. There is a tag for "spacewrapped 2016" on AO3. Please add that to your metadata.

One final rule--We don't have many, but this one is paramount, so let's make it clear--This is a Jim/Bones comm and a Jim/Bones fest. We don't care if they're BFF's, lovers, brothers, or colleagues, but their relationship should be the primary one depicted in your work. If you have any questions about that, email us for clarification.

If you find you cannot post on your selected date, that's okay. Good lord, we know life can implode during the holidays. Been there, done that, got the mental scars to show for it. But please email us at spacewrapped @ gmail (.) com just to let us know. And if you find you can finish it, please post! Also, we want to have at least one work per day. There are 21 days on our calendar and about....26 of you, so there will be some multiple works on a few days, especially if you post later than your claimed date. Again, it's okay. Just let us know.

Claim your posting date!Collapse )

Jones Holiday
So, okay, I said we'd take prompts until tomorrow. But dang, y'all came up with 60 of them! Sixty!! There's only about 22 of us writing/arting.

Here's how it works:
--Read through the prompts
--Think about the prompts
--Select a prompt
--Tell us in comments. Comments are open, everyone can see. Just so you can see what's being claimed. Hey, if you want to write or art a prompt that's already been claimed for fic or art, go for it. We know you'll come up with something unique. But if you don't want to share, then hey, now you know. Find another.

In a couple of days, we're gonna set up the claim-a-date-to-post entry so you can sign up for a day to post. Check your calendar, see what your schedule looks like. We'll be posting December 12-January 1, or thereabouts.

The 2016 SpaceWrapped Prompts!!Collapse )

Any questions? Let us know!
9th-Sep-2016 04:08 pm - PROMPTS!!! We want 'em!!
Bridge Snowing
Did ya ever think to yourself, "Self, I wanna write a fic for space_wrapped but I just know what I wanna. Have you ever had enough time to sit put together brain and go to the computer wanting to create a graphic for space_wrapped but just didn't have a clue what to do, so that the blank screen just sits there and mocks you?

Yeah. Me, too. Except it happens on a daily basis.

So let's help each other out. In comments, leave a prompt. A prompt can be a word or a couple of words, a brief sentence or two. Just enough to create a buzz in the brain, enough to tickle a fancy. (Beyond that and it becomes a full-blown idea and you should take it up and run with it yourself.) Give us something to get the creative juices flowing so that someone can look up from the blank screen and go, "OMG! That's it!!!"

It's the weekend, and I'm sure you all have copious free time. Write down some prompts and maybe you'll even get inspired.

We'll take 'em until September 28. I'll compile them into one post and y'all can peruse them at your leisure.
6th-Sep-2016 11:07 pm - Announcing the 2016 Fest!
Jones Holiday
Well, once again, we are a day late and more than a few credits short, but there will be a 2016 Space Wrapped Holiday Fest!!!!

As it has been in the past, this is your low-stress holiday fest:

* You aren't writing for anyone except yourself (well, except for everyone who reads it. But you're not assigned to anyone)
* You aren't even require to post, though we really really really want you to.
* If life around you implodes, as life does during the holidays, we don't come after you in the night with a pitchfork.

Here are the details:

--From now until September 20, think about if you want to participate. Leave us a comment so we know someone out there is interested.
--Starting in the next few days, we'll throw up a post for PROMPTS. Yeah, we haven't done them for a few years, but we figure y'all might want some inspiration. We'll take prompts until September 28.
--One of us will compile the prompts, and y'all can claim them. We don't care if 10 of you write or art the same prompt, because frankly, that'll be 10 different pieces.
--Starting September 20 you will sign up for a posting date (depending on how many of y'all leave us some sort of sign you're interested), which will be mid-December to January 1. We'll close the posting time on October 1.

That gives you about 2.5 months to create!!!

Any questions? Leave it in comments or send it to us at {spacewrapped @ gmail . com}
15th-Aug-2016 11:17 pm - Fic search + icons
hobbit: kili laugh

I hope it is okay if I post this here. Wasn't sure where else to post. If it is not okay, mods you can take it down.

First, I just want icons of Jim and Bones. Not sure where any are. Help?

I am in search for two different Bones/Jim fics. I think they were written by the same person. Username might have started with I.

In one, for some reason, maybe diplomats are coming to visit or something, but Jim proposes that he and Bones be in a fake relationship. I remember there was a scene at the cafeteria. I think Spock was skeptical of the true nature of their relationship. I think they fake came out to the crew. I know it isn't much to go on.

The second one was set pre first movie. Jim and Bones are still students. I think it started out with Bones seeing Jim having sex with a girl in the bathroom of a bar. Jim has a motorcycle he calls Jess or Jesse. They make out and have sex on the bike. Lots of sexual tension. I seem to remember had a sequel too about them navigating their way through their relationship.

I think one of the fics had a public sex scene at a gym. Kirk had been helping Chekhov with skills when Bones comes in. They end up having sex on the gym mat. I think Bones freaked out about it afterwards.

Both were written before Into Darkness came out.

I have no clue if they were on AO3, but I know they were on LJ. Both are multi-chaptered.

Thanks for your help, guys!

ETA: Both are found! Two Men and a Motorbike and Playing Pretend by inell! Thank you so much heavenlyxbodies! You are so awesome.

Title: Colour of the Glass (and the Foolish Games You play)
Author/Artist: anon_be_done
Word Count/Medium: uhm, no idea
Rating/Warnings: T
Summary: James T. Kirk doesn’t do subtle; everyone knows that. Jim Kirk is the one who would stomp over everything; loud and brash, bold and daring, quick to point things out and call attention to them. Only Leonard McCoy knows that Jim Kirk can be subtle, and there are times he most certainly is. A pity that Leonard decided to play games with Jim's feelings only a blue coloured glass can end. And not a moment too soon.
Notes: Written as a fill for an old prompt over at st_xi_kink meme, since I really had no idea what to write about. Also, late as heck, because I suck (and am clumsy at work, how disasterous can it be, orly?)

Notes: It seems I'm still really bad at this time management thing. To motivate myself to finish this I'm going to post the first few chapters up.

Additionally, I originally wanted to post something sweet and fluffy this year; however, unfortunately this little plot bunny wouldn't leave me alone.

Please enjoy and happy holidays.

Rating: PG
Summary: Jim had always had a hands on approach when it came to the ship’s Christmas celebrations, this year though, he was having trouble focusing. The problem came down, quite simply, to one thing, or one person, rather. It had taken him almost five years to realize he was in love with his best-friend, another two to even consider acting on it.

…of course, the command staff may have been a little help with that last part.

AN1: written for space_wrapped 2015
AN2: Yes, I admit it, the title is a twisted ‘round line from Roger Whittaker’s Country Christmas.

Title: Pour Some Sugar On Me
Author: sadie_yuki

Word Count: 5136
Rating/Warnings: PG-13
Summary: Jim walked onto that shuttle in Riverside with literally the clothes on his back. As his roommate at the Academy, Leonard notices the lack of attire variety soon enough. With his new high paying job at Starfleet Medical, he's more than willing to gift Jim with a few clothing items or any other necessities, but Jim isn't so willing to accept charity. So he offers the only thing he has to give in exchange: sex.

Basically, a story in which Jim tries to convince Bones to be his sugar daddy.

Notes: This story is actually planned out to be much longer, from the beginning of the Academy as you'll see here all the way through and past Christmas (see, we hit the holiday spirit here kinda). I severely overestimated how much energy I would have to write after getting hired to a full time position, so I came up short on my original goal.

But while there's definitely more to come, what you see here can still be considered a full story on its own. If you'd like to read the rest, follow it on AO3! Otherwise, I really hope you enjoy what I have here! :)

Title: My True Love Gave to Me

Word Count: 3,470
Warnings: Fluff with a teeny bit of angst.

Summary: It's their first Christmas together and Jim wants to give Bones a special gift.

Notes: This story is set six months after Nineteen Days: A Tale of Coffee, Love and Baseball (not necessarily in that order)

The series is set in present-day San Francisco where our heroes met when Leonard was working at coffeehouse before starting med school. Jim's an engineering student who has been deaf since birth. While it isn't necessary to read that to understand this story, it might be helpful to read the one that directly precedes this one: Come and Adore Him.

Star Trek: Mistletoe Jim &amp; Bones
We now have a community for this year's Space Wrapped stories on AO3.

When you're doing all the info for your story in the AO3 template, look for "Associations", then under that is "Post to Collections/Challenges". Type in "Space Wrapped 2015", and it will add your story (virtually, not actually) to the collection. This way anyone wanting some Jim & Bones holiday goodness can click that tag and find stories from this, and every past years' Space Wrapped.

thalialunacy and starsingertx, please edit your stories. Thanks!

Jones Holiday
So, space_wrappeders, the time drawing nigh for our frivolity to commence! Can you feel it in the air? Are you listening for the pitter-patter of Jim and Bones doing fabulous and holiday-type things together?

I'm so excited!

But, like some of you, I still have work to do. While you're busily beavering away on your creative project, here's a header for you to use:

Word Count/Medium:

Pretty easy, huh? Just enough to let readers/viewers know what goodies await them.

Since I've already had one question about this, I'll re-iterate: Please post to space_wrapped first! You can stash your fic anywhere you want--Your LJ, AO3, etc.--but please put in your metadata a link to this community. We want folks to visit the comm and discover your compatriots' works, too! And, please don't post early. Post it on the day you're supposed to. It's like getting a little gift that we all unwrap together, yes?

Tagging: Please tag yourself along with the rating of your fic or art or whatever. If you aren't there, create a tag for yourself using the model "by: ", "advent 2015", and the rating.

Looking forward to this, bbs! Any questions? Let us know.

Oh, shit, bbs! We totally got wrapped up in our own dramas and totally forgot to do this post.

So here's the deal: we're serious about this being a low-fuss fest. Shit happens, life gets in the way--hey, we know. If you find that you cannot post on your date, just drop us a note. No judgment, no scolding will you hear from us. We'll try to post a picture or something, just for everyone's amusement and inspiration.

But just because you can't get it done in time doesn't mean you don't finish. Oh no. You must finish it! Because damn, bbs! We need more Jim/Bones in our lives. Right?

Happy writing/arting/whatevering!
Jones Holiday
It is that time of year again! Time to think about the holidays! And the holidays mean Jim & Bones, Jim & Bones doing things together. It's time for


The low-fuss, low-muss Jim & Bones fic/art/graphics/anything else you can dream up fest! The fest to put you into that good mood at the end of the year.

I know, I know. It's still hot as Vulcan out there how can it be time to think about the holidays? But it is. It’s time to think about writing Jim and Bones. At the holidays. In the snow. In the tropics. Celebrating, not celebrating…. Hey, we’re easy.

The laid back style seems to work, so if it ain't broke, we ain't fixing it. And that means we're still saying, 'Fuck it, do what you want.'

...Well, maybe not THAT casual, so the rules are:

1) There will be no call for prompts, nor a formal claiming of prompts, though we have prompts from yesteryear you MAY claim if you find one that strikes your fancy. Otherwise, you can write whatever you want. Just as long as the focus of your creation is Jim and Bones, and they’re together. AU, Crossover, STID-compliant, ignore STID, holiday, not holiday, whatever stirs your grits.
2) THIS RIGHT HERE is the sign-up post. Just say 'HEY! I’m a-gonna create something for' space_wrapped. Ya know, just to get a feel for how many of you are out there interested in doing this.
3) In October, once you’ve had some time to think about your story and consider your calendar and start negotiating the holiday/New year’s plans with your family (which, yeah, can be as delicate as negotiations with angry Klingons, oy vey BEEN THERE DONE THAT) --oh, let’s see-- how about October 19 we’ll come back at you with the CALENDAR CLAIM, as in, the day in December you agree to post your creation.
4) On your selected day in December YOU WILL POST!

That’s it. That’s how we're doing it again this year.

Any questions? Direct them to spacewrapped@gmail.com

Yo, let's do this!!! SIGN UP!!

In addition I have to thank weepingnaiad and abigail89 for the numerous rounds of word-warring that finally got me to finish up over the last few weeks. Thanks ladies...
