damon & elena holiday (author2author) exchange 2016  


How this is going to work:

  1. Sign up for a LiveJournal account, if you don't already have one. You can sign up using... Facebook, Twitter, Google or create an account from scratch.

  2. Post a comment with your prompt. You can only submit ONE prompt. Your prompt must be about Damon & Elena. It must be rated either Mature/R/NC-17 or Teen/PG-13. The last day to prompt is December 15th.

  3. From now until January 7th, you can write stories for any of the prompts posted. All stories must be 800 words or more. There are no guidelines. You can answer all of them if you'd like (not joking!). The idea of this author to author exchange is the excess of giving.

  4. Be merry and read the stories that will be written for you!

  5. Only authors can participate. If you are posting a prompt, you are pledging to write at least one story for us.

  6. Have anymore questions? Tweet me at NerdDamon (#DEHX6) or ask here.

  7. Turn in your story by commenting here.

& So the fun begins....

Elena's is the owner of a busy department store. She expects Ric or Stefan (whomever you choose) to show up to play Santa Claus.

Damon is the middle of a high stakes poker game when he finds his pockets empty. Ric or Stefan happen by and give him the cash on the condition that Damon do has do something for him. He's under the impression that he has to pick something up at Elena's store when what he really has to do is be the Santa Claus.

Playing Santa is not something Damon's is prepared to do and tries to walk out. However, Elena isn't one to say no to.

You take it from here. Sex is optional. Bonus points for a kid, either a cute one, that melts Damon's heart or one that drives him crazy the same way that Elena does?

Prompt (yay!)
Two strangers (Damon and Elena) missed their respective trains and are stranded in the station on Christmas Eve. Without other options than to wait until morning they decide to make the best of their situation by improvising a celebration. If you manage to get smut involved then who am I to judge? ;)

The Salvatore's and the Gilbert's have hated each other for generations. Somewhere down the line, they have forgotten why, it was just expected that the feud would continue. However Damon and Elena would have to disagree. They got to know each other in college, and started dating. After dating since the beginning of the school year they decided they were totally it for each other and eloped right before going home for Christmas. They decide to come clean to their families at the Annual Lockwood Christmas Gala.

It's totally up to you where it goes from here and tweak the prompt as you see fit.

Bonus points for the news causing someone to get drunk and cause a scene at the party, mistletoe and spiked egg nog. Smut or no smut is up to you.

Re: Prompt
I've been giving it some thought and I'd love to put a little Romeo and Juliet spin on D/E, minus the deaths and all of course xD but feuding families should be fun to write about :D

Whoa. I think the last time I did fanfic was for this exchange last year...and it turned into "Christmas in July" by the time I was done. As per my norm, I think this one's going to be a 3-parter. I hope to have chapter one up by Wednesday.

okay so I once started a fic with this similar idea a long time ago but I've realized I'm never going to finish it soo I tweaked the idea a bit and put a holiday spin onto it:

No one in the scooby gang has any christmas plans for one reason or another so Elena drags everyone onto a Murder Mystery Train (they can be vampires or humans, whatever fits the story best). Everyone is grumbling and reluctant- especially Damon- but the others eventually get really INTO it. Except for Damon, who wanders off in the middle of the whole mystery thing. Elena notices he's gone and they end up in a secluded part of the train by themselves. Here they can either have a heartfelt conversation about why he dislikes Christmas, or....other hijinks can ensue ;)

Re: prompt!
I've always been fascinated by the concept of Murder Mysteries, and still hope to attend one some day, so I think I might just give this a go and live vicariously through DE. Eek! Scary trying my hand at fanfic again all these years later. Hope I won't disappoint :)

Damon and Elena are on their way to a ski cabin or other type of holiday destination when Damon's car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. How ever will they stay warm? ;)

Feel free to be as clean or as smutty as you like, but they should probably be human since it'd be too easy to just vamp-speed on out of there :)

It's up to Elena to choose the perfect tree for this year's Gilbert family Christmas, so she heads to the best place in Mystic Falls--the Salvatores' tree farm. She's prepared to hunt down the tree and cut it herself, but she soon discovers it's a bigger job than she'd planned on. Enter Damon, who she secretly has a thing for but has never been brave enough to act on it. As he helps her wrangle a tree, will she finally muster up the courage to reveal her feelings there in the middle of the woods?

Bonus points for snow, hot cocoa, a surprise kiss, and a healthy dose of DE fluff. :)

Christmas Angel
Elena Gilbert is Damon Salvatore's Christmas angel... at least that's what Bonnie Bennett says. While Elena helps Damon rediscover his Christmas spirit she learns he could be her chance of finding her way back to Earth. After all she isn't dead... she's in a coma.

Smut or Clean... Whatever works for you :)

I'll admit my TVD love has waned a bit over recent years. I'm having a hard time coming up with a prompt, so I'm leaving this one open-ended.

I'm asking for three elements in the story:
-a puppy
-a proposal
-a baby on a doorstep

They can all be DE or you can throw in Alaric/Jenna, Stefan/Caroline, or Bonnie/Jeremy if you'd like to mix things up a bit.

Damon Salvatore is a rich cocky young man, who gets what he wants when he wants. He's waited a while, but finally he's ready to get the one thing he wants this Christmas.
Elena Gilbert is the unlucky maid hired to wait on the snobby rich Salvatores hand and foot. She'd like nothing better than to leave, but there's one blue eyed dark haired man preventing that from happening...
Will Damon and Elena both get what they want this Christmas? Or will it be another one spent alone and broken hearted?

I've had this in my head for a while. I hope I'm not too late to submit this prompt :)

Prompt: Pre-Vamp Elena. Jealous Elena! Sneaky Katherine & Drunken Damon!
Hi, everyone… I know it has been awhile and, as I write this, my heart is pounding and even my hands are sweating, I’m so nervous! I haven’t written anything in so, so long, moreover, I know by writing a prompt for this exchange, that means I have to answer one and find my musie again; which is frightening because she deserted me a while back! However, despite being utterly terrified, I really want to give writing a shot again. Moreover, I think starting here, a place where I feel comfortable would be a great way to get my feet wet and (honestly) see if I still have what it takes to write a good story. Truthfully, I’m unsure if I still have it, this will be my test before I make the choice to hand over some of my stories to other writers who can give them an ending that both the stories and readers deserve.
Okay...so that’s my story guys, hope you all can welcome me back. Here goes nothing…

Prompt: Jealous Elena! Sneaky Katherine and drunken Damon on Christmas eve.

It’s Christmas eve in Mystic Falls and Damon is all alone at the boarding house drinking his Christmas away while the others are attending a party at the Lockwood mansion. Katherine blows back into town and decides to have a little fun with Damon by presenting herself as his Christmas present--pretending to be Elena, of course. Elena feels bad that Damon is all alone, so she goes to the boarding house and catches Kat & Damon flirting or even kissing (nothing further than that please) and is outraged Katherine is playing her mind games again.

Katherine’s motivations are up to you...she can either be serious in her efforts to seduce Damon because let’s face it, he’s gorgeous, or you can simply have her doing this because she’s bored and just wants to play with his head (as she likes to do), or another reason of your design, the choice is entirely yours.

Jealous Elena is a must! Elena realizing she has real feelings for Damon is a must! Damon can either know it is Katherine right away and simply be playing along to see what she wants or he could honestly be fooled again until Elena arrives...your choice. Bonus points for Elena giving Katherine a good old fashioned smack across the face for messing with Damon like that. Double bonus points for anyone who can deliver a drunk & snarky Damon, but show his vulnerable side at the same time.

The ending to this piece is entirely up to you...it can be smutty (like I love) or fluffy… either way, the end-game is Elena giving Damon his first “holly-jolly Christmas” ever!

Happy Holidays everyone!
Jenna (AKA Angel's blue eyed girl)

❤️ Prompt
There's only 20 minutes left to the prompting deadline and I've been scrambling to think of something I'd love to read. Here I go...

- Elena has been a lonely orphan for years, you can explain why she never ended up with Jeremy/Jenny if you want, but the reason doesn't matter to me
- Elena is more rough around the edges than in canon, she's refused to speak since the car crash that killed her family
- Damon finds Elena sleeping in a public place on xmas eve or new year's eve

- Vampire or All Human AU, either is fine with me
- Elena's age
- Elena can be homeless or maybe people just stay away from her because she's reclusive or a "weirdo"

Thanks to everyone reading this & being here! I'm hoping this prompt works for writers that want this to be either romantic/fluffy or dark.
