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
, please edit your stories. Thanks!

: I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR. ♥
ers, 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:Title:Author/Artist:Word Count/Medium:Rating/Warnings:Summary: Notes:
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.
abigail89 & weepingnaiad
Oh, shit, bbs! We totally got wrapped up in our own dramas and totally forgot to do this post.
It's time to CLAIM YOUR POSTING DATE!!!
Now, this is one thing that is sorta, kinda set in stone. Pick a date, post your fic/art/whatever. So there's one day for everyone.
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?
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 SPACE_WRAPPED!!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Yo, let's do this!!! SIGN UP!!

Star Trek AOSCharacter(s)/Pairing(s):
Modern AU. Fluff.Summary: "Why--why," he fumbled. "Did you do all this?"
The pilot raised an eyebrow. "What? Make breakfast?"Disclaimer:

Makes me happy, just play niceDisclaimer(s) can be found here (see Fandom(s) I’m Going To Hell For) Summary:
Jim and Bones have a tradition: Christmas consisted of Jim, Bones, a bottle of high-end bourbon, and questionably conceived pizza.AN1:
written for space_wrapped
So when I started this I had this wonderful idea full of Bones!angst and schmoop, about a paragraph in I must’ve started smoking crack or dropping acid, then it somehow turned into extremely light Jim!angst and a massive helping of schmoop… so, yeah, I have no idea, but there is Jim and Bones and Christmassy stuff and schmoop and of course a happy ending.AN3:
Title is from “Christmas is Here Again”
by Roger Whittaker (don’t judge me :P )/lyrics
…still going to special Trekker Hell.

Jim Kirk, Leonard McCoyRating:
So, first of all... hi!! It's the first time I take part in Space Wrapped and also the first time I post in a community. I hope I'm not making any mistake! And if so, please stop me :D
My entry is a fanmix about our beloved Jim and Bones, for which I also drew the cover. I started putting it together almost one year and a half ago and it's been edited a lot of times! The lyrics of the songs mostly reminded me of McKirk, but there's also a few that simply felt good for them despite non having too much of a relatable lyrics.
to be redirected on 8tracks and listen to the fanmix!
(click on each picture for full size)Something I Need
has been my personal McKirk theme for a long time now, so I had no choice but to name the fanmix after it! For the two of them are also just as good Demons
, and I have to thank thenizu
for sending me Falling In Love (With Your Best Friend)
; the title speaks for itself :D Unintended
is absolutely perfect as Bones's theme, while Kryptonite
are definitely Jim's. Other songs that I had chose but didn't make it in the final setlist (whether because they felt slightly out of place among the others or because 8tracks wouldn't let me upload yet another Muse song 8°°D) are: I Want To Hold Your Hand
(the version from Across The Universe soundtrack), Endlessly
and Butterflies and Hurricanes
by Muse (the latter one is sooo Jim!), Counting Stars
by OneRepublic (yet another prompt by thenizu). A little sidenote: I think Kryptonite
and Butterflies and Hurricanes
are just perfect for the Jim of the Academy Series
by Mijan. Just try listen to them while thinking about those stories. (◡‿◡)✿
Lastly, the fanmix cover without title:Happy McKirk 2014♥♥♥
Jim T. Kirk, Leonard McCoy, David McCoyRating:

Not that I can think ofSummary
:Jack Frost AU. Where Bones grew up with snow boy jim and jim always return every christmas. Bones fell in love with Snow man Jim and eventually wished Jim can stay human and be with him.A/N:
TO BE HONEST...I didn't know where exactly i was going with this but I know i have more for this (in terms of thoughts) and I only drew 2 drawings related to this etc. Since these images will be in a book for my comic last year and several winter illustrations. Mckirk Fancomic Book order form
: An Idiot's Guide to ChristmasAuthor
: Star Trek AOSRating
: McCoy, Kirk & gangWord Count
: themes of depression, alcoholism and of course Jim Kirk-hijinksSummary
: AU; Grandma got run over by a reindeer because, sorry, Santa was drunk. Or, in other words, Christmas isn't the jolliest time of year for one Santa Claus in particular. During his holiday gig, Leonard is plagued by someone who has the appearance of a grown-up but is in reality the world's most annoying kid. He wants Leonard to explain why Christmas is about celebration, which is an answer Leonard doesn't have to give.A/N
: Written for space_wrapped
; based on the prompt: McCoy is a department store Santa, and not a very good one. To make matters worse, some snot-nosed adult starts coming through the Santa line and trying to sit on his lap.
This story is not what you might expect. I started with an idea, then decided halfway through that the plot was less important than the characters. The endgame became how to bring the crew together as a band of misfits that we all know and love. There are funny moments and not-so-funny ones, too. Oh, and Santa Claus. :) I hope you enjoy it!
