You know, it's a shame this community is so dead because...

It'd have been neat to do like a secret santa gift exchange over the holidays or something. I don't think we've ever done anything like that, but seeing as there are only like, maybe 7 people that have posted here as of late, it would almost be pointless. Plus, somebody would end up drawing the short stick and have to receive/get a gift from Hol. So ... perhaps it was for the best.

Eh, I've had a secret santa gift exchange this year (and the previous year) with my own little community and even though only 6 joined in in total, it worked out pretty well. I can't see why it shouldn't work on here.

Plus, there's all sorts of other occasions one could arrange a "secret gift exchange" for.

It's a novel thought.  After Lemocon one year and a few anime cons every now and then, it would be nice to connect a bit better.  Life's been boring for too long, and it's been hard to cobble together the money and time for an adventure for a while.

Though, Hol might not be so bad gift-wise.  Some makeup to help him attempt vanity or a 54 DDDD wonderbra and false tits for his fat fetish would do the trick.  H Hog and Shinmera would be more troublesome for how annoyingly high shipping rates are to continental Europe.

I would rather have another LemoCon than have any of you know where to send explosive packages to have me assassinated.

I'll write some fatwas to celebrate the occasion and bring fabric so we can do Pac-Man cosplay.  Girls can be the ghosts.

I'm not sure what's so bad about getting a gift from me. We actually did a Story Exchange in the Transformation Story Archive, the story I wrote was beloved. Plus I'm not an asshole, most likely I just would have gotten someone something off someone's GoG or Steam wishlist. For a couple of my friends that's exactly what I did. I even remember my friends' birthdays. So I'm not getting it, was there a phase I don't remember where I specifically stated "I give everyone a box of shit for Christmas!" or have I ever come off as being incredibly selfish?

And yeah I would have accepted make up or girl clothes, or even an art comission, could have been a bad MS Paint drawing of my tigress character with Amy's Hammer jammed through her stomach. Would have just been nice to have been thought of, my two cents.

For those curious the story I wrote was about children fighting to the death in a tournament to get magic beads that turn them into furries, one boy becoming a female foxtaur due to a mix up (surprisingly not a Hunger Games ripoff) and the story I received was about me turning into a living cartoon character in an amusement park and then being made a glorified slave of Disney World Adventure Studios. I didn't really like the story I wrote, I felt I could have done much better, but Vulpinetaur Ty loved it, so I guess it worked out in the end.

If drawing me would be annoying for the high shipping, how d'you think it is for me? With a few small exceptions, no matter who I'd have drawn, I'd have ended up with the same problem. =P

Oh, of course.  I know the pain goes both ways.  I shake my head at how stupidly expensive it is to do business anywhere in continental Europe.  I'd love to just say, "Oh, I'll bring the gift the next time I'm in the area"...but it's been a few years since I was last in your part of the world.  The general cost and still horrible exchange rate make it a little harder to do than one of my road trips.
