    It is because Purim is the celebration of Esther who was Jewish, female, and her people were being persecuted by an evil Vizier... It's a way to make the fic contest celebrate the holiday. Not a kink just a narrative.
    Imagine that the world is made out of love. Now imagine that it isn’t.

    Imagine a story where everything goes wrong, where everyone has their back against the wall, where everyone is in pain and acting selfishly because if they don’t, they’ll die.
    Imagine a story, not of good against evil, but of need against need against need, where everyone is at cross-purposes and everyone is to blame.

    I admit I've never heard of the Purim. Strangely, the character I find the most interesting in that story is Vashti.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    Vashti is interesting because some people will read it as some kind of promotion of passive woman/wifehood. She refused to obey her husband's every whim, so she got divorced an demoted. However, based on how Esther does use a certain kind of feminine powerbrokering from her attained position and it's clear that the king was drunk and asking Vashti to dance, it is likely that this "dancing" was more like "hey do a strip tease in front of me and my bros!" and Vashti was like "um, no," so it is showing a theme of, like, how precarious power was for women even when they were in the right. Esther is awesome.

    Anyway, I updated the OP with the missing links, and I would also like to share this link of theirs explaining the rhyme and reason behind their sign-up: http://purimgifts.tumblr.com/howtosignup

    Also, an issue I have had that you might face if you have ever signed up for purimgifts before is that my old nominations from, like, 2014 are still on the "new" nominations form. I'm not sure what's up with that, but I've asked the mods to take a look as they see fit. It shouldn't be a problem to move forward with nominations, though, because they give you 20 fandom slots and most of us don't have that many unless you wanna nominate every rare book you've ever read.

    Also, reminder to please link your Dear Author letters for ChocolateBox or PurimGifts here if you end up doing them???

    OP updated for Not Primetime. Nominations are still open for a couple of days! (April 15 is closing day.) Should be a good exchange to nominate Fate/stay night (all media types), Fate/Zero, and Fate/Grand Order characters and relationships for.

    OP updated with Trick or Treat exchange 2019 nominations open.

    I hope to continue work on the fic rec thing when I'm back in Japan, this time with a functioning computer.
