8th-Aug-2011 01:00 am - Round 7 Assignments Sent
smoca cat
I have sent out all the assignments for round 7 by email and in two cases by note. If you did not receive your assignment for whatever reason, please contact me by email at catyen AT gmail or send me a note, and we'll try to sort things out. If you have questions or comments about your assigned prompts, don't hesitate to message me.

Good luck and I hope you have fun with your prompts!
5th-Aug-2011 12:07 am - Round 7 Sign Up Ending Soon
Boat Ride
Sorry about not being so active lately, but that's partially the fault of LJ. XD

This Friday (August 5) will be the last day to sign up for Round 7. Thank you all for signing up or showing interest so far~ This is shaping up to be an exciting round all because of you!

The schedule is as followed:
Sign Up: July 18 - August 5
Working Period: August 7 - September 4
Display Week: September 4 - September 12

So far I have one person expressing concern about not being able to complete his/her prompt in a month. If there are more people interested in a longer working period, I can officially extend the time limit to around 45 days or even 60 days. The reason why I'm considering an extension is that I noticed that the deadline for melorasworld's fanart contest over at the History of Hyrule is September 30. Her contest needs as much love and support as the exchange, and I don't want people to miss out on either the exchange or the contest because of the time constraint.

As usual, please use the sign up form when sending your requests:
http://community.livejournal.com/zelda_exchange/1108.html You can send your form either by emailing me (catyen [at] gmail [dot] com), posting your form in this entry, or noting me in DA. Because LJ has been kind of wonky lately, maybe it's better for you to email me.

So far the following people have signed up. If you do not see your name on the list and you did send in a form, please send it in again because I might have missed it completely.

I don't normally ask for help, but this time around we have some unique requests and offers...

In the making department, currently we have two people (Searaph and Selenere) who are interested in making crafts. We also have someone who really wants to write (looking specifically for Marin-related prompt or prompts that work well as fic). I think I need to start recruiting writers to the group--our resident writer is getting a bit lonely. :( If you are interested in craft or fic, please contact me.

In the receiving department, I'm looking for someone who can fulfill any of these requests. I need a crafty person who can either make miniature items that can be attached to a cord or wearable items (like cap). I'm also looking for someone who likes to make icons or graphics. If you're interested in fulfilling any of these request, let me know. The person who made these requests did include some art requests so if you end up not deciding to do any of these crafty prompts, you can still have the choice of doing a drawing.

Based on the updated info, if you want to change or append your sign up sheet or if you can help in any way, please contact me asap either email.

Thank you!!

Thank you all for your responses about my previous blog entry. Round 7 sign up begins now. It was supposed to start on the 15th, but I forgot. XD I've adjusted the schedule accordingly so you'll have plenty of time to sign up, work on your prompts, and post.

Now the schedule is as followed:
Sign Up: July 18 - August 5
Working Period: August 7 - September 4
Display Week: September 4 - September 12

There are some gifts for round 6 that hasn't been posted here in LJ yet. I'll try to remember to post them soon, but you can always check them out at DeviantArt.
8th-Jul-2011 12:34 pm - Round 7 Discussion
smoca cat
Hey everyone~ Round 6 looked to be another successful round. Everyone did their prompts and received their gifts (I think?!). I'm thinking about fitting another round before the school year starts again. Currently I'm leaning towards another regular gift exchange round for Round 7 with the sign up in July and working month in August though if you guys have suggestions for a special round or theme, feel free to post your ideas here or send me a note. The tentative schedule is the following:

Sign up: July 15 - July 28
(I send out the assignment around July 30)
Working period: July 30 - August 28
Display week: August 28 - September 4

What do you guys think? This isn't set in stone so we can change stuff around if needed.

Also, how many people in the group does pixel art? I got a fun idea, but I need to figure out the logistics as well as do a couple examples before I make an official announcement.
18th-Jun-2011 09:42 pm - Seclusion for DagronRat

Title: Seclusion
By:hikaruno5 
Fordagronrat 
Request: Impa watching over Zelda after fleeing Hyrule Castle
Medium: CG
Game: Ocarina of Time
Characters: Zelda, Impa
Rating: PG
Warnings: None

View at DeviantArt

Creator’s Notes:
I've never drawn Impa before and seldomly draw child Zelda in her princessy suit (hmm...Zelda in a suit ) so here it is! This would be set in Ocarina of Time sometime after Link acquires all the spiritual stones and Ganondorf takes over Hyrule Castle forcing Zelda and Impa to flee. I imagine they would hide in ruins bordered by forest but my background doesn't portray that too well.
Resolute
By: kotukawi
For: AnIncoherentMess
Request: Wind Waker
Medium: Fanfiction
Game(s): Wind Waker
Character(s)/Pairing: Tetra, Ganondorf
Rating: ESRB T
Warnings: Very minor language
Creator's Notes: I think this is one of my least favorite works to date here at the Exchange, but apparently my beta reader said that it was still a good story, so HOPEFULLY it still will be appreciated all the same. :)

Summary:
Tetra isn’t have a good day. First, she gets her butt kicked by Ganondorf. Then she finds out her great-great-grandfather upset Ganondorf long ago and he wants revenge. Then she finds out that she has to wear a dress. An all-out bad day. But if there’s one thing that would take the cake, it’s that Tetra gets left behind while Link and the worst king ever attempts to thwart her enemy in her stead. All “for her safety” to boot. A tale of what really happened beneath the waves... and a tale of how princesses shouldn’t just be damsels in distress.

I have sent out all the assignments for round 6 by email. If you did not receive your assignment for whatever reason, please contact me by email at catyen AT gmail, and we'll try to sort things out. If you have questions about your assigned prompts, don't hesitate to message me. I will be out of town for the rest of the week so I won't be able to respond until this weekend at the earliest.

I have extended the working period to June 11. This means that display week will start on June 11.

Sorry to spam your friends page, but a quick reminder that you have one day left to sign up for Round 6. I'll try to send out the assignments on the 25th so please get your form before then if you're interested in participating in the current round.

The blank form is at the usual place (http://community.livejournal.com/zelda_exchange/1108.html).You have until April 24 to send in your form. You can either email me at my gmail account at catyen or post a reply here.

Also, I'm thinking about extending the working period to accommodate those who have finals and other school-related stuff. Because we're not going to start round 7 right away, I figure we might as well give people some breathing room. If you are interested in the extension, please post a reply to this entry so I can gauge the level of interest.

So far the following people have signed up. If you do not see your name on the list and you did send in a form, please send it in again because I might have missed it completely.

If you're interested in participating in Round 6, please send in your sign up sheet. The blank form is at the usual place: http://community.livejournal.com/zelda_exchange/1108.html.

1st-Dec-2020 03:30 pm - Welcome to the Zelda Exchange
Boat Ride
Welcome to the Legend of Zelda Gift Exchange! The purpose of this community is to give and receive presents from fellow Zelda fans. Curious about what's this group's about?

The Exchange in Five Simple Steps
When the moderators announce the exchange, you will have 2 to 3 weeks to sign up for that particular round.

The moderators will then match up people based on their interests and requests and send out the requests.

Once you receive your assignment, you have one month to complete and send your work to the moderators for final approval/record keeping.

At the end of the one month period, the community is open for posting. You have one week to present your gift in the community LJ so your person and the rest of the community can see and comment your lovely work.

Once display week is over, the remaining unclaimed requests are opened for anyone to fulfill until the start of the next round.

For more details check out the frequently asked questions or guidelines section. As of 2011, we are also officially a group in DeviantArt. You can find us over at zelda-exchange

We're always interested in affiliating with groups both in DeviantArt and Livejournal. We're mainly look for groups that share similar interest or function as us (Legend of Zelda fans, community-oriented groups, or gift exchange), but we're really not that strict so we'll affiliate with almost any group. Feel free to send a note or a request. If I have not responded to your request, chances are I didn't see it so please contact me again (especially considering that I was on hiatus from the net for like two years)!

You can also contact us directly by email at zelda_exchangeCATstudiocyenDOGnet (replace "CAT" and "DOG" with the appropriate symbols) or in this thread if you have more questions or need clarifications. Replies are not screened in this entry so if you have something that needs to be discussed privated, email is better.
Boat Ride
The special theme round is ending soon, but you can still submit your works here and at our DeviantArt group. As long as your work fit the requirements that 1) it has either of the themes and 2) created after January 18 of this year.

I haven't really post much here lately, but I've been pretty busy dealing with behind the scene stuff. I've been gathering and collating the pieces that have been submitted to the group. I still have to write up a proper guidelines for the DA group, but there shouldn't be any major changes affecting activities here in LJ.

Tentative Schedule
Ok, I think round 6 is a go. I should be able to organize and start the next round even though I might have a friend coming to visit and also a short trip in April. This is the tentative schedule though I want to run it by you guys to see if you want to change anything.

Sign Up Period: March 19 - April 9
Working Period: April 19 - May 14
Display Week: May 14 - May 21

Three weeks to sign up, about a month (+ extension if needed) to work on your assignment, and the usual one week to display work. I'm debating whether or not to let people submit their work as soon as they're done instead of making them wait for display week. Then again, most people get their stuff done at the last minute anyway. *cough*me*cough* What do you think?

Affiliates and Members
Since I'm really bad about advertising our group and stuff, I'm asking for your help to find affiliates and new members. So if you know in LJ or DA anyone who might be interested in making Zelda-related gifts, please invite them.

Also, in case you guys don't know, melorasworld is having an EPIC art contest over at the History of Hyrule. The theme of the contest is Musical Festival and the purpose of the contest is to gather images that will be used for a free, downloadable calendar. The prizes are fantastic. If the idea of drawing Zelda fanarts isn't appealing enough, maybe the prizes will be. :D For more info, check out http://woodland-mel.deviantart.com/journal/37916777/ and http://melorasworld.com/zelda/theforest/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=405

Finally, if you can't wait to sign up for round 6, feel free to email me your sign up sheet. ;) Don't post your sign up sheet as a reply to this post because screening is off. Here's the link to the sign up sheet: http://community.livejournal.com/zelda_exchange/1108.html
17th-Feb-2011 01:56 pm - Reminder and Works Posted So Far
smoca cat
Just a reminder that the special bonus round is still in progress. The themes are 1) love and/or hate and 2) a birthday present for Link/birthday celebration. You have until March 1 to submit your work, but that deadline isn't set in stone. Also, sign up for regular round will start sometime around mid-March or early-April. Hope to see some participants then. :)

Here are some of the pieces submitted to the group over at DeviantArt so far.

20th-Jan-2011 07:17 pm - New Theme for the Bonus Round
smoca cat
Hello everyone! I was chatting with the awesome people over at History of Hyrule, and melorasworld has brought to my attention that Legend of Zelda/Link is going to turn 25 this year on February 21. This gave me an idea. How about we have a new theme a birthday present for Link or birthday celebration?

Our original theme for the latest themed round love and/or hate is still valid, but now you have a few more choices. :D
