Winter Exchange Rules
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 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:
14th October 2021: Sign-ups open
28th October 2021: Sign-ups close
8th November 2021: Assignments sent out
20th December 2021: Assignments due
24th December 2021: 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.
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!( Collapse )
Here are some banners for you to promote the fest with.

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!
