Ah, mon cheries, this year wasn't exactly our best in terms of postings. Perhaps, like me, you too were feeling especially stressed out and tired and unimaginative and unmotivated to create. But again, perhaps, like me, you too are a couple of thousand words into a fic, or most of the way through creating a playlist, or have an outline drawing that you couldn't get colored due to other commitments.

That's okay.

So if you, like me, wish to continue your efforts, we welcome your postings any time. ANY TIME.

Thank you to caitri for posting her wonderful story (‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, and) All Through the Snowglobe.... Go read it and leave her love & congrats.

Thank you for signing up for Space Wrapped! We'll be back again in 2018 (god willing and the creek don't rise.)

Don't Go where I Can't Follow
Title: (‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, and) All Through the Snowglobe...
Author: caitri
Rating: PG (Language, Violence, Smoochies)
Pairings: Kirk/McCoy, Jo/OFC, Spock/Uhura, Sulu/Ben, Kitchen/Sink
Word Count: 12,452
Summary: It’s holiday season on the Yorktown as the crew waits for the Enterprise’s refits. Unfortunately, amid crises personal and professional, there’s a lot less mistletoe and good cheer and a lot more...explosions, fistfights, and drama. Jim Kirk and his crew have saved the universe on multiple occasions, but this year can they save….Christmas?
A/N 1. Many many thanks to abigail89 for organizing [community profile] space_wrapped , running Word Wars, and providing incredibly useful feedback and encouragement! Even more thanks to [personal profile] fritz42 for betaing and providing valuable feedback!! I appreciate you both more than words can say.
A/N 2. [personal profile] the_dala asked for a couple of things for [community profile] space_wrapped, and I only provided a couple of bitlets from different prompts, namely everyone having personal crises and a Santa's workshop AU. Somehow my brain went directly to the idea of Jim in an elf costume in a dramatic shoot-out, and everything went downhill from there. So here, have Die Hard in space. Yippee ki yay, motherf***ers!

“It’s bad enough livin’ in a snow globe as is,” Leonard grumbled anxiously to himself as he waited for the aptly-named Kringle to dock, “but did they have to fiddle with the weather controls to rub it in?”

Star Trek-Christmas Crumudgeon Bones
So we're about a month away. You should kinda sorta maybe have a feeling about where your entry is going, and when you may or may not finish.

Sign up for the day you think you want to post. I'll go first. (Uh, maybe) But if you don't finish by your posting day, please keep creating. Post when it's done (and tag your post so we can index it.)

1st-Nov-2017 12:41 pm - UGH! I AM THE WORST
Star Trek: Mistletoe Jim & Bones
I am the WORST fest mod ever.

Or the most laid-back. You choose.

So it's November 1. I hope y'all are making better progress on your Space Wrapped fics than I am. Which is to say NO PROGRESS at all. However, I am a member of ushobwri on DW which is a kick-yer-arse writers' community. Gentle encouragement, especially during November which is National Novel Writing Month. ushobwri is more about getting you to write 10 minutes a day, on whatever you want to write, be it on a fic, a novel, a school essay/research paper, a LJ/DW entry, emails at work, etc. There is some accountability. I'm taking it seriously this year and will post a journal entry most days and try to write on the fic every day for at least 10 minutes.

Doable? Maybe for you. *sigh*

Okay, so let's talk turkey: On November 15 I will post the posting schedule for December. By then you should have at least an inkling as to how it's going. Pick your day, and write like hell for that day. All right?

To facilitate that, I have created a Chatzy room for us here:

http://www.chatzy.com/17914311737403 called "Space Wrapped". If you wanna do some word warring or need some encouragement, please join me starting today. Uh, I have no idea what time, but I'm in the eastern US time zone, and sometime after 9pm. If you need the password it's jim_and_bones

Leave any questions or comments in comment.
22nd-Sep-2017 09:36 pm - The prompts post
Jones Holiday
Here it is--The official Prompts Post!

The rules:
--Prompts needs to be short. Like, one or two words; a short phrase. Anything longer, it becomes a story and you probably should write it yourself.
--I will gather up all the prompts and dump them into a post in about a week.
--Once I post them up in a PromptING post, that's it. There will be no scramble to claim. Take any prompt or prompts that tickle your fancy. I don't need to know about it, but if you would, make note of the prompter(s) and thank them in your notes.

23rd-Aug-2017 09:26 pm - We're BAAAAAACK!
Star Trek: Holidays
I am standing in my kitchen, sweating like the proverbial targ and that's with the A/C on. It's August, and the last thing on my mind is the holidays. I mean, the season doesn't start until November (yes, the holidays begin with the American Thanksgiving--so sue me), and school hasn't even started yet.

But the time is NOW to begin planning the end-of-year writing season, and that means.......
*cue angelic chorus*

Okay, that was too much. But yes, Space Wrapped is back for its 9th year!!! How awesome is that?? Pretty damn awesome because of YOU, you fabulous McKirk/Jim&Bones people, with your wonderful stories and amazing art and lovely musical mixes. It just wouldn't be the holiday without your creative contributions that bring to life our lovely boys.

So, rules. Gotta have 'em. Or, not.
*We are a low-fuss, no-muss affair.
*You write/art/mix. Pick a day to post.
*If you don't finish on your day, that's okay. We know life gets totally nuts at the holidays, and if everything conspires against you to finish, it's okay. No guilt. No nasty emails from us in the middle of the night.
*If you know you aren't going to finish, just let us know.

So here's the calendar:
It's still August 23 where I am. August 24 for all y'all east of me.

Sign ups--just a "YO! I'M-A GONNA WRITE/ART/MIX THIS YEAR" in THIS post. We just want to know who's interested.

We have a list of prompts from years past that we can throw up in another post. If you want to post some prompts, we'll put up a post in early September so y'all can prompt each other.

Then first of November we'll quiz y'all again and see who's actually doing something. You will pick a posting date for some day
in December. You will post on that day.

That's IT!



Questions? spacewrapped @ gmail (dot) com or here. We're available to answer anything you want to ask.

We love you, and we're excited to host the 9th Space Wrapped fest!

Love & Hugs,
abigail89 & weepingnaiad

27th-Dec-2016 10:44 pm - Story: Longing to be told
Bones side profile

Author: blcwriter
Rating:  PG-13 for homophobic & racist slurs
Prompt/Summary:  Home for the holidays in Georgia, and Leonard's mother hates Jim.  They make it work anyway.
Warnings:  Homophobic, anti-semitic language, general family unpleasantness, too many food descriptions, random tourist facts about Savannah, GA.

This is an accidental sequel to my modern restaurant AU, The Taste of All in It, a modern restaurant AU. Link to AO3 here.

Title: Do You Wanna Build a Snowma - Dammit, Jim, No I don't!
Author: Pherryt (A03 or Tumblr) / tuberatn (LJ)
Word Count: 5124
Rating: Teen and Up
Warning: None
Leonard McCoy wasn't entirely sure how he'd been roped into this, but here he was building a snowman on some random planet because the Captain thought they could all use a morale booster.

By the time they're done making their snowman, Leonard no longer begrudged the Captain for insisting on this particular activity.


How Bones’ First Snowman Leads to McKirk

NOte My second (final) entry! Enjoy! I am almost late to work! (they changed our hours for the day last minute...ugh)


Got Paper
Title: Dammit Jim, I'm a Doctor, Not a Ghostbuster
Author: Pherryt (A03 or Tumblr) / tuberatn (LJ)
Word Count: 3232
Rating: General
Warning: None
Summary: Mistletoe keeps following the Doctor everywhere on the Enterprise and he's getting sick and tired of it. He hasn't quite caught on to where it's coming from or what the pattern is but his refusal to just kiss his Captain already is putting a serious crimp in the plans of a couple of really invested ghosts...not to mention hurting the captain...

Notes: This is the first of two prompts. I have to add something to the end of the other one and it should be good to go. (It's been so long since I've used LJ I've forgotten how to use the LJ user icon system, sorry!)

Oh - and I did make a reference in this story to another ST story I wrote...but probably no one will catch it, I'm a fairly new writer...*shrugs*

19th-Dec-2016 12:19 am - Fic: And the Star Said
Title: And the Star Said
Pairing: Jim Kirk/Leonard McCoy
Characters: Jim Kirk, Leonard McCoy, Joanna McCoy
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I don't own any recognisable characters .... they all belong to Gene Roddenberry
Summary: Jim Kirk, kindergarten teacher extraordinaire, adores all of his children but he has a special fondness for late arrival Joanna McCoy. And then he met her father.
Authors Note: As always, massive thanks to nursedarry for her excellent beta skills and thanks to the mods for hosting space_wrapped ... it's my first time participating but I've loved it. Slightly late but just sneaking in - it's still the 18th somewhere in the world!

18th-Dec-2016 06:26 pm - You Give Me Feelings I Adore
Title: You Give Me Feelings I Adore
Author: arrowinthesky_5
Word Count: 20K
Rating: PG-13 (for some smut)
Warning: None
Prompt: I forget the exact wording, but the basic idea is that Jim and Bones lack gift-wrapping skills.
Summary: Jim has a plan, her dad has no clue, and Joanna knows twice as much as they do. Starting with the fact that her dad and Jim are so in love that they can't make heads or tails of the wrapping paper and the tape dispenser Nana has on hand. They're too busy making eyes at each other. Unbelievable. They can run a ship together, but wrapping gifts? That's another story. Still, Joanna will always say it was a good thing she'd stepped up to help them. And, with a shared affection in their eyes, they will always agree.
Notes: I'm obviously partial to long summaries! Writing a fic that is mostly fluff is totally new for me, but it has been a nice change. I had to restrain myself from adding angst. Several times. :D Split into two parts, b/c the story got away from me.

This story is loosely based on my WIP, And if I Stand Next to You, but it's not necessary to be reading that story to understand this one. I promise. I hope you enjoy the read. Small spoiler, that's not really a spoiler because you find out from the get-go: this fic is about making a certain kind of commitment. ;)

And can I tell you I am so relieved I finished on time this year? Yes, I am.

Housekeeping rules:
*Use whatever header/metadata info you want, but please do use a header of some sort (see mine for an example)
*Tagging! Yes, please tag with "advent 2016", a rating, and an author tag. If you don't have a personal tag, create one for yourself using "by:(space)(your name)" We want visitors to find your work!!!
*If you know you're not going to make your posting date, and that's okay, just drop us a note at spacewrapped (at) gmail(dot)com. We have a couple who have created double entries and we may be able to fill in your spot that day.
* Please DO KEEP CREATING!!! We allow posting all year long, so don't give up. The holiday season extends to January 6, and Chanukah is sort of late this year (Dec 24-31), so there's still time to post during the "official" holiday season. . :D

Are we in the holiday spirit yet?

Title: Observing the Traditions
Author: abigail89
Word count: 6830
Rating: PG for mild language.
Warning: Nothing. Nada. Nope.
Prompt: “Jim attempts to make Leo’s grandmother’s Christmas cake. Not only is it a disaster, but the only copy of it gets destroyed in the process.”
Summary: Jim & Leo make it back to Starbase 5 where Joanna and her family are settled. It’s the first visit after the births of David Kirk-McCoy and Joanna’s daughter, Leah.
Notes: Many thanks to my brain twin weepingnaiad for the super-fast beta job. Any remaining mistakes are mine alone. It’s my fault there’s a distinct lack of smut. *smut-fail*

Though set in The Shotgun Proposal ‘verse, you do not have to read those stories to understand this. The short summary: Jim & Bones are nearing the end of their active mission careers; their son, David, was conceived after an encounter with an alien culture and born on Christmas Day, the same day as Bones’s granddaughter; it’s five years later.

Karl & Chris--Santa karl
In one (1) week, we begin posting.

I'm the first one. Is my fic done? Nooooo, it's not. Am I going to finish it? I'm sure gonna try.

Any questions, comments, confessions, rants? We're here for you.

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 )
27th-Sep-2016 09:52 pm - Claim your prompt (if you need one!)
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
star wars: artoo --> love this droid

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?)

Title: Crystal Lights and Far Off Nights

Word Count: 3500+ a smidgen
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.
