Winter Exchange Fest 2019-2020

Winter Exchange Rules

Hello everyone!

It's that time of year again and we're hope that you are excited for another round of the Harry Potter rarepair_shorts Winter Exchange fest!

We are posting the signup sheet before the main signup post again. Art was added as a preferred method this year and we will be keeping it as an option. As with previous years, we will try our hardest to make sure we pair you with someone who can do your preferred method, but it may not be possible for everyone to get their first choice as it depends on who signs up.

As you know the Winter Exchange is an anonymous exchange for rare pairs in the Harry Potter fandom where the mods match up requests with another participant, who then writes the requested fic/art. All participants receive a fic or art based on their request/prompt. The authors/artists are anonymous until all the entries have been posted.

This year's timeline and basic rules:

7th October 2019: Sign-ups open
21st October 2019: Sign-ups close
4th November 2019: Assignments sent out
16th December 2019: Assignments due
23rd December 2019: Posting begins

As per the comm rules, only rare pairs are allowed (please see this post for excluded pairings). Minimum word count is 500, maximum 2500 words for fics. Art must be traditional style and it must show that it's more than a simple drawble. For this exchange fest, we will not be accepting photo-manips.

NC-17 material is allowed, but please remember that there should be some plot rather than just smut. The focus is on your recipient's desire more than anything else.

Extensions will still be granted but on a case by case basis only. Extensions will last no longer than two weeks after the deadline before you assignment is given to a pinch hitter.

People who signed up last year but dropped out without telling us are not eligible to participate this year.

Please read through this post carefully before asking questions. There is a lot of information to sift through, because everything you need to know is in this post. Be sure to read everything!

Everything you need to knowCollapse )

Here are a few banners to promote the fest:

If you have any questions either reply to this post, or send us an email at rarepair.shorts.mod[AT]gmail.com and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Anyone is welcome to join us, whether you've participated here before or not. So please spread the word to all your friends; the more, the merrier!

Sign ups will be open on LJ and DW.
