Are Monsters Born or Made? A White Christmas Fic-a-thon  
Do you love the criminally underrated 2011 Korean drama White Christmas? If you've seen it you do, and if you haven't seen it, you should fix that.

Deep in the mountains of Gangwon, South Korea, the private, elite Soo-sin High School is attended by the top 1% of students in the country. Their stellar marks are the result of constant pressure and a strict punishment system, to the point where students avoid any activities outside of studying. It is in this atmosphere that seven students and a teacher remain at school for the winter break, joined by a psychiatrist who was forced to take shelter with them after he was injured in a car accident nearby. Stranded from heavy snow, they spend eight days together ― from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day. At a time when everyone else is celebrating the holidays, the students realize that the anonymous letters they each received were not the result of a harmless prank; there is a murderer in their midst. A question lies unspoken: Are monsters created, or are humans born monsters? -source

What you think you might write: Most likely Con artists!AU with pairings Jae Kyu/Chi Hoon and some form of Eun Sung/Young Jae/Yoonsu
Do you think you’ll want a beta?: Very much, yes please
Would you be willing to beta?: I don't think that would be wise

The dealbreaker being: how tbe hell will they convince Chi Hoon to go along with it?

ANNA GO DO THE THING!

AU where the kids are not AS fucked up but still pretty fucked up and where Jae Kyu is in a constant state of "I fucking hate all of you". And Eun Sung has the best/worst ideas.

For some reason my first attempt at signing up ended up getting marked as spam? Let's try this again.

Name: Audrey

URL: audreymgonzalez at tumblr (main blog) or audreyskdramablog at tumblr (kdrama-centric blog)

What I think I might write: Well, I definitely have another post-apocalyptic AU drabble to do, and I've also got an AU where Yoon-su survives his suicide attempt, and then there's that non-chronological drabble series...

Honestly, though, I adore pretty much all the kids except Kang-mo, and I'll ship pretty much anything so long as it is interesting. If the prompt grabs me, I'm game.

Do I think I'll want a beta: Probably not. I do, on occasion, make sad faces on tumblr and ask people continuity questions.

Would I be willing to beta: Unfortunately, I don't really have time to. I've got other fic commitments right now, and I shouldn't even be participating here, but I can't just let this pass me by.

Also, question for the mod: Can I post a link to my White Christmas master fic list?
Lirazelpenny_lane_42 on June 23rd, 2014 03:57 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you're here! And absolutely, link anything you want to that's White Christmas-y!
audrey_hokaudrey_hok on June 23rd, 2014 07:24 pm (UTC)
Excellent. I shall do so this evening. (What tags should I use?) I'm so excited about this fic-a-thon.
Lirazelpenny_lane_42 on June 23rd, 2014 10:59 pm (UTC)
I just made a tag post that should help you!

I'm so glad you're excited! I figure even if we only get three or four fics, that'll still be worth it. :D

What you think you might write : I don't actually want to sign up for writing because I'll feel terrible if I don't end up writing anything... However! I want to do something, I just have to figure out in what format. But if I did write something, it might just be me crying over parental figure Kim Yohan, because I have problems y'all.
Do you think you’ll want a beta? Whatever I end up doing will certainly need a beta, yes.
Would you be willing to beta? I would. I can help with structure, characterization and overall cheerleading but I won't beta spelling and grammar (I'm not a native speaker). If you want me as your beta, be sure to know exactly what you expect from a beta, because if you can't give me any clear instructions, I won't feel comfortable giving you any concrit.
