We here at PSS are proud to announce the return of the Portal Secret Santa event for the 2014 winter holiday season! The application is now open to the general public. You may submit applications anytime between now and Friday, November 14, 2014. Please don’t procrastinate on getting them in, because the form will shut off at 12.01am on the 15th and you’ll no longer be able to participate.
And now, a quick Q&A.
Q: What is Portal Secret Santa?
A: Portal Secret Santa is a holiday gift-giving event that takes place within the Portal community. You’re randomly assigned to make a gift for someone else who wants to participate, and in return, someone is randomly assigned to make a gift for you. So it’s kinda like a chain of Portal gift-giving. And any Portal fan, regardless of how old or new you are to the fandom, is welcome to participate.
Q: What kinds of gifts does this event require?
A: Anything you can make. It could be a drawing/painting, a fict, a song, a sculpture, a plush, whatever. The only restriction is that it’s gotta be something YOU made. Knowing that you put your very own time and effort into the gift is part of what makes it special for the recipient. c:
Q: When will I know who I’m making a present for?
A: It all depends on how fast we can work out pairings. Ideally, we’re planning on having the prompts out to you by Thanksgiving.
Q: When and how do we give our gifts?
A: Gifts will be exchanged on December 24th. See the full FAQ for complete details.
