1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    Likewise for me on Star Wars and the writing only, although I'm sure I can rustle up a story request if needed.

    Don't let me hold you back. I've never thought of these stories as anything that I'm entitled to; rather a pleasant surprise if one ended up being written.

    Sign me up. I can't guarantee anything in regards to quality but I'll do my best.

    I can write HP, DF and Pokemon.

    I think I'll probably choose the easier/selfish route and just give an idea/request.

    I'm pretty well versed in a lot of series, so judging based off the series people are willing to write.

    I'm willing to generate ideas for DF, RWBY, HP, Nasuverse, Naruto.

    I'm pretty new at this, but I assume I'll get thrown in a draw and randomly get paired with a writer?

    Tentatively ready to join both groups, but I was unable to finish the request last time, so, no guarantee. But I'll be willing to give it a shot.

    As to the fandoms:

    Worm, RWBY, Naruto and maybe a few others (Harry Potter, maybe Fate stuff, Frozen) depending on the characters involved.

    There's no need to promise. If it doesn't work out, it doesn't work out. It's the thought and the attempt that counts! :)

    I can't actually edit the post any longer, but needless to say, I haven't missed you signing up!

    Keep it coming!

    I have a quick question since I'm new to DLP: do we put in requests here or do we have to write and request? Or do we just say, "I'd like to request _______?" For instance, I love reading what you guys come up with (I'm a huge fan) though I'm not very confident in my writing skills. Would it ok if I just requested a fic?

    P.S. - when I say I'm new I basically mean that though i've had an account for a while, I haven't really used it.

    Think it'd be fine if you just put your name down to request loki0191. It's no guarantee that your eventual request will be written, but it might be.

    Since we're actually short on requests, you're most definitely welcome to contribute with em! :)

    As has also been said, you'll have to adapt to the author you're given since he or she is doing you a favour, not the other way around.

    A few more days and then we're off. Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Alrighty. Here we go. Prompters have been informed of their Secret Santa and should be contacting them as soon as possible. If you've signed up to write but haven't been contacted within the week, let me know, and I'll see what went wrong and where.

    Same goes for any other issue that might arise. Merry Christmas everybody!
