WELCOME to the club where you can upload all your art of male characters and by just being a member you can claim a Bishie of your very own!

(We say Bishies because we aren't picky about them actually being bishounen - Bishie here just means "any male character".)

:star:Claimed Bishies:star:
check this list first to see if your boy is free

Didn't see him there? Good, that means he's probably yours! Take a look at this...

...and now send a join request, listing the Bishie you want and the series or fandom he comes from.

Please follow this format, for easier listing:
Given Name - Surname (if applicable) - series/fandom - what type of fandom it is (anime/manga, game, movies, tv show, comics, cartoon, book... other?)

You'll be approved (or rejected because you didn't list those things) pretty quickly. If the Bishie you want is claimed, you'll be informed of that and still approved, but you'll have to choose a new guy.

All joined up? Good! Now you have until the end of the month to fill this out:

If you don't, you will risk losing out on him, because he won't be reserved - anyone can come in, make a card, and take him from you.

Now that you're a full-fledged member, you'll have to submit a picture or story about him at least once a month - if you miss three in a row, your Bishie will no longer be reserved, just as if you hadn't made a card. Someone can join the group and take him from you until you submit again.

You can also submit pictures or stories about any other male character. Fanart and original guys are both welcome. Submission limits are 3/day.

Have a Bishie and want to change to a new one? Make sure he's not claimed, and then:


Hello all. :]

I thought that Hallowe'en was a good excuse to do a Secret "Santa". ("Secret Jack Skellington" maybe? Heh. I slay me.)

This isn't in any way required, of course. There will still be a prompt for October and life will go on as normal.

:bulletpurple:We will be drawing (or writing about) each other's Bishies. :) Gifts don't have to follow the Hallowe'en theme, but it is available for inspiration.
:bulletpurple:Writers and draw-ers will not be mixed unless there are people who are all right with receiving something from the other medium, but if more than one writer signs up they will be paired together.
:bulletpurple:Large participation would be nice but not required; if even one other person signs up it shall go on.
:bulletpurple:The assignments will be sent out the same day October's journal goes up, probably October 1st, and will be due at the end of the month.
:bulletpurple:Even though you aren't drawing your own Bishie, you will still gain points for this submission.

:bulletpurple:Open to all members who have a claimed Bishie with a card submitted. If you don't have a Bishie but want in on gift trading, now is a great time to get one. ^-^
:bulletpurple:Because this is a gift for another you should put serious effort into it. Drawings must be in color. Writing must be at least 1000 words.
:bulletpurple:Aside from starring your partner's Bishie there is no requirement about what you draw. They may make requests but you aren't required to follow them if it's too difficult for you. However, if they list some restrictions (things they don't want in their gift) please honor them. It's not much of a gift if you know the recipient won't like it.
:bulletpurple:Late submissions will be accepted (late is always better than none at all!) but will receive a reduced award. If you do not submit your half of the trade you will receive -5 (negative five) points and will be barred from future trades until you have made up the one you missed.

Sign Up
Just copy-paste this into the comments and fill it out.

Name: ( your account name )
Bishie: (your claimed Bishie and where he's from)
I will be: (either "drawing" or "writing")
Okay with receiving writing (if drawing) or drawing (if writing)? (either "yes", if you are willing to take a fanfic even if you are drawing or drawing even if you are writing, or "no", if you only want the same medium)
Requests or Restrictions: (you don't get a lot of control over what your partner makes for you, but you can list things you don't want to see - if you only pair him with certain people, for instance)

Sign up will close October 1st when the assignments go out.

I used to be part of the group 4 years ago! It looks much more organised than before.

I'm glad you think it's an improvement. ^-^ Of course the founder and original mods didn't do anything wrong, but the groups system was very new at the time and I'm working with a lot more experience.

That's true! Back then groups had only just started being a thing and they had a flood of members, it must'v been tough as nails for them back then. But still, now the group is very lovely (there are groups out there nowadays that are still extremely...chaotic). Thanks for accepting me in the group, by the way!
