Tentative schedule:
Nominations: 27th June - 5th July
Signups: 7th - 15th July
Works due - 1st/2nd September
Works revealed - 9th September
Creators revealed - 16th September
Does this schedule work? Any issues?
(I do have issues with moving these dates very much, in that my Internet is limited to my phone until my home Internet gets repaired, around the 27th-28th, maybe the 29th or 30th at the worst, and I can't accept nominations very quickly on my phone, and I will have limited time from the 19th for about a week and a half due to prior IRL obligations).

Rules and FAQs have been revised. New FAQs are here; old FAQs can be found here.

Nominations:
The tagset from last year is here. Does the grouping of fandoms work? In particular,
  • Tolkien as The Silmarillion, The Lord of the Rings books, The Lord of the Rings movies, The Hobbit books, and The Hobbit movies
  • Marvel - MCU, individual TV shows, comics under their own 'verse (no overall Marvel comics tag)
  • Ditto for DC
  • Star Wars is split into Originals, Sequels, Prequels, Rebels, Clone Wars, Legends, and comics
  • This year, I'd also like nominators to refrain from All Media Types tags as much as possible
If there are any issues you spotted last year, or if you think this grouping doesn't work, please leave a comment.

GenEx is an exchange for '&' relationships (i.e. gen relationships.)

Rules and FAQs from last year.

Rules
  • Romantic and/or sexual relationships should not be the main focus of the work.
  • You must either drawn clean lineart with at least basic coloring, inking, shading etc. (no graphics or photomanips allowed) or write a fic with a minimum of 1000 words. Work must be of adequate quality to be gifted. DNWs stated in the signup should not be included in the work.
  • Authors cannot deanon by mentioning their name in the work before the anonymous period is over. Artists can insert a watermark if they wish to. Crossposting is not allowed until the anonymous period is over.
  • There must be a working email address attached to your AO3 account so I can contact you.
  • Don't wank in exchange spaces, don't be rude.


FAQ
How many fandoms and relationships can I nominate?
You may nominate up to 7 fandoms, with a maximum of 7 characters in each fandom.#

Can I nominate more than two people in a relationship, for example A & B & C?
Yes.

Can I request [character] & any?
Yes.

How many fandoms and relationships can I request?
You may request a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20, or any (any relationship in the tagset), relationships.

How many fandoms and relationships can I offer?
You may offer a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20, or any (any relationship in the tagset), relationships.

Are crossover relationships allowed?
Yes. Crossover relationship must be nominated under 'Crossover Fandom'.

Are original works allowed?
Yes. Relationships for original works must be nominated under 'Original Works'.

How does matching work?
You will be matched on a minimum of one fandom and one relationship within that fandom. If no-one has offered what you've requested, your requests will be sent out as an initial pinch hit. If no-one has requested what you've offered, I'm afraid you'll have to add pairings/fandoms to your signup or drop out of the exchange.

Are treats allowed?
Yes!

What are the minimum requirements for treats?
There aren't any.

Is there a seperate collection for treats?
No. Treats go in the main collection.

I need an extension!
Please contact me at least 12 hours before the deadline if you need more time. I cannot give extensions that are closer than 72 hours to the time of reveals.

Is there a penalty for defaulting?
No. However, if you're defaulting due to issues with the assignment etc, please remember that if you default earlier I have more time to find an initial pinch hit.

Do I need to tag my work with the & relationship on AO3?
No. The tags in the tagset are for matching purposes; as long as the work contains a requested gen relationship between characters you're fine.

I left a comment on LiveJournal/left an ask on Tumblr/messaged you on Tumblr and you haven't replied.
There is only an RSS feed on LJ; I don't get notifications for comments on the feed. The Tumblr is for promotional purposes only. Please direct all question to the DW comm or email me at genexmoderator@gmail.com .

How can I contact you?
Leave a comment on this post, or email me at genexmoderator@gmail.com

I have a problem with my assignment/gift.
Please contact me privately and I'll see what I can do. (If you've matched with someone who hasn't requested at least one of your offered relationships in one fandom you've offered, I can fix that, but I can't swap assignments around. And yes, I can deal with gifts which break the rules.)

He'd gone to the arena with his slave Bran.

He'd found a lead in his investigations, a gladiator's memento.

He watched the gladiator in question, Achillia, win another of her matches.

He went down to confront her. )

It’s explicitly a book about fading Empire. M16’s roots are in World War 2, and the core of the plot reaches back to there. What is Britain’s place in the world now? What does being British even mean? In a real way, it is a post-Brexit Bond. -- Kieron Gillen

A few minutes ago, I heard a delicate little tap-tap-tapping at the sliding glass door. All the cats are in, so I figured it was a bug hitting the glass. I looked over.

What popped into view? The teensiest, weensiest little furry black head. With the teensiest, weensiest little white stripe.

Yep. That's a baby skunk.

ADORABLE. Absolutely frickin' adorable wee thing.

But noooooooooooo, no matter how cute, not coming indoors. Nope, nope. Especially since I know Mama Skunk is probably no more than a few feet away.

Since Foolkiller ended with the implication Frank Castle was about to shoot The Hood, and the general consensus was "good riddance", I thought I'd take us all back to a time before Parker Robbins was a lame magic Kingpin wannabe, with the MAX series that first introduced him, written by a pre-Runaways and Y: The Last Man Brian K. Vaughn and drawn by Kyle Hotz.

Y: The Last Man #1

"We wondered if he thought a planet full of women could ultimately rebuild society and sustain itself once again. Vaughan was surprisingly optimistic on that front. "Yes, I do think it could. There were a lot of people early on in the first year who complained, "Wow, this is such a misogynistic book to say that, because the men died, the women can't get the electricity running all over the world and the airports up and running again." I think that's an extremely complex, extremely difficult thing to deal with. When three billion people die, I don't care what their sex was, that's an incredibly difficult thing to come back from. I will say that the world would be better off than if it were just the men left. I think that would be an even more dire situation. I think there is hope for the planet."

"I'd read the two BROTHER POWER THE GEEK comics as a small boy, and thought they were seriously weird. Rereading them as an adult they were still seriously weird, and funny, and touched with a sad, strange nostalgia. I'd been reading some Ken Kesey, and somehow the idea of Brother Power as a final remnant of flower power began to possess me. 'At least you didn't bring back Prez,' said my friends, relieved. Little did they know."
--Neil Gaiman, Midnight Days

Sign ups & mod afk

Just a reminder that sign-ups are open. I'll be camping this weekend and may be slow to respond to queries.

Sign-up on AO3. You will need an AO3 account, but their queue is down to less than a day. Please note that you must be logged in to sign-up. Sign-ups will close on June 28th

Fic Corner Tag Set.

Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters can be found here.

Requests

You must request at least three fandoms, and can request up to ten. You may request between 0 (any) and 10 characters. The exchange is set up to match ANY, not ALL to increase odds of matching. You may not be matched on ALL the characters you request.

By requesting Any, a participant is requesting Any characters on the fandom's nomination list. Do not be that person who requests Any in Fandom F, but writes about specifically wanting Character Z from Fandom F who wasn't nominated.

You may also request Any if you want fics focused on worldbuilding instead of a specific character(s).

Prompt URL: If you want to leave a Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letter for your writer, this is the place to do so.

Description: Optional details are optional, however, if you want to give your writer ideas, this is the place to do it, whether you write a letter or not.

Offers

You must offer a minimum of 3 fandoms, maximum of 10. You may offer up to 10 characters or offer Any.

The bucket list is enabled, so you can offer more than 10 fandoms, but any fandoms in the bucket list default to ANY characters, ANY ratings. More information about making a bucketlist offer (including a lovely diagram) can be found in the Yuletide sign-up instructions.

Don't forget to request/offer fandoms you want. If you're lukewarm about a fandom, don't request it or offer it. Chances are this will be the fandom you receive/are assigned.

Once at least five people have signed up, you'll be able to keep track of current request/offer numbers via the signup summary.

You may edit your sign up form until sign ups close on June 28th.

It dawned on me I gave myself a week for matching. I will wait to close sign ups until whatever time Sunday morning I reach the computer to start that process.
