About 578 fandoms were requested in this exchange. A third of that is 192 fandoms. We currently have works for 140 of them. We're just 52 more fandoms away from meeting the general community challenge. You can check out a list of fandoms that don’t have any works over here.
For the Chocolate Box Challenge we have 49 works tagged. Almost half way there to the goal of 100 works focusing on relationships.
Monster Mash isn’t doing as well as the other challenges. Only 26 works have been tagged. Getting 74 more works before Halloween is doable.
1. General Challenge – This year’s general challenge is to have at least one work for a third of all the requested fandoms.
2. Trick Challenge – For the trick challenge the goal is to create 100 gifts involving monsters. These can be traditional monsters, human monsters, monsters specific to the canon, and original monsters. You may include magic using humans as monsters if you feel it fits. Any gifts created for the Trick challenge should be tagged as ToT: Monster Mash
3. Treat Challenge – In honor of gaining a sibling exchange, the treat challenge is to create 100 gifts involving relationships. These can be romantic or platonic, healthy, unhealthy, between any gender combination. Any gifts created for the Treat challenge should be tagged as ToT: Chocolate Box.
While the Trick Challenge and the Treat Challenge were created with Tricks and Treats in mind they do not have to match. You can do a Trick that is also part of the Treat Challenge and vice versa.
So, this year's community challenge is for every participant that gives a gift to receive two gifts. Length does not matter. I do not count as a participant, so no need to gift anything to me.
I was thinking of having a challenge for the community in terms of making gifts. So, the community challenge is to make a total of 255 gifts between everyone combined. This includes assignments, pinch hits and extra gifts. If half the accounts in the exchange made one extra gift it would hit 255. This is not something required, this is just for fun. While it would be fun to have a prize for the community, I don’t have many ideas. So, if you want the community challenge to have a prize, please suggest it on this post.
