    Ah, I see what you both meant now. It does feel like a good way to 'ground' things, in a sense.

    Thanks!

    Puns are not jokes, they are an unfortunate byproduct of civilization.

    But on topic more seriously, Arashi's advice in that post is on point. There's a difference between writing plain, ordinary smutting and writing an interesting lemon, and it's all in the flow.

    What's interesting to me is that we're still scandalizing citrus fruits in this part of the internet. In AO3 land, smut has obtained a more forgiving and broad definition.

    People have been bugging me about it, so I guess I'll start asking here.

    Any more interest in more exchanges? I'm not sure if putting so many exchanges back-to-back would be wise, lest we start tiring of them, but people seem to be interested.

    On another note, if we were to start another one, would you rather it be themeless (like Secret Santa) or themed (like White Day and lemons)? As for possible themes, I was thinking of doing pairings (anything focusing on two char's relationship, be it romantic or friendly or antagonistic) for Tanabata. Thoughts?

    I'm all for more exchanges, especially ones of the romance type.

    My sense of the vague fanfic writers' buzz, on and off forum, says that burnout isn't approaching yet.

    I generally feel themed exchanges are more interesting, and I think it does help people to get some guidance for their prompts in that way. They're not always easy to come up with. And, when they've done that, they're probably also in a mindset more attuned to the prompts that they're going to be getting too.

    I'd be down for another exchange.

    Honestly I'd rather it be themeless (more variety) but I'm not against themed; I skipped the lemon one because lol but character pairings sounds good to me.

    Alright. Thoughts on pairing-based then? Where we either have:

    A) Prompts as usual, centered about the pairing, or

    B) Prompts that consist only of a pairing (ex: "Touko/Shiki", "EMIYA/Artoria", "Ciel/Akiha"), and the authors are free to do with their pairing whatever they wish, be they make it romance-based or shippy, or a fight scene of the two, or just an exploration of their relationship, et cetera?

    B) I think runs the risk of too many prompters not enjoying what they get, which would sorta suck. And I'm not sure if this is the same for others on here - I know it tends to be the consensus for exchanges I've done elsewhere - but really minimal prompts actually tend to cause more writing paralysis than a good few lines do. You want a spark that sets you on your way, not a blank sheet of paper to stare at for a month.
