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.)

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.

Hilary Knight Interview with Maxim

Other than the gross title this was a really great interview. I particularly liked the bit where she basically called out a couple of common myths and misconceptions about women's hockey.
Maybe just speculation but it feels like HK was planning on playing in Sweden after college, because she said she learned to speak Swedish.

Sign-ups are open. The sign-up summary can be reached from the sidebar once at least 5 people have signed up.

Post or link your Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters here.
You'll want to list the following at a minimum:

your AO3 Name (especially if it's different from the name you're commenting with).
Fandom 1
Fandom 2
etc.
Link to your letter on or off LJ/DW

You can also post your entire letter in the comments.

A note on optional details
Optional details are optional, but participants may have very strong feelings about how they want their childhood fandoms to be handled. I ask that you also respect any squicks/strong feelings expressed in their letters.

That being said, your letter is not the place to ask for a character who wasn't nominated or a specific relationship, unless it's one of several options (or something like "I love everyone/Character X, so feel free to include them if you want"). Remember that your writer only signed up to write the characters listed and might not be prepared to write for other characters. Don't make your writer sad because they know they can't please you.

Fic Corner Sign-Ups are live.

Short version, I overslept. Due to the delay, vetting will run until 9pm EDT 19th June (What time is that for me?), and assignments will go out tomorrow night once vetting closes.

I've got four fandoms which were not published for children or teens, but are teen-adjacent which I've decided to allow.

Biting the Sun - Tanith Lee
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
Ready Player One - Ernest Cline
Wayward Children Series - Seanan McGuire

I'll be sending the character nominated as "Judge" in the Henry & Mudge series through as Mudge, barring any new information before I close noms. I'm slowly working my way through sending fandoms and characters from the uncategorized/unassociated bins right now, so please do not leave vetting comments on those. It takes a while for the archive to catch up to the changes I'm making.

Vetting notes can be left in the comments. The Tag Set can be found here

Unanswered Queries:

For the person who nominated the Henry & Mudge Series, I've got one character I'm holding off on approving - did you mean Judge or Mudge???

New Queries:

For the person who nominated The Worst Witch Series - Jill Murphy, you nominated Maud Spellbody who only appears under that name in the newest TV show. Did you mean to nominate Maud Moonshine?

I'm pushing noms closing back till tomorrow morning as I've got other tasks I need to finish tonight. You've got till 18th June at 9am EDT (What time is that for me?).

We're about about 12 hours away from noms closing now. You've got till 17th June at 9pm EDT (What time is that for me?).

Note that the mod reserves the right to leave noms open overnight and close them in the morning. If this happens, there will be a post with the revised deadline.
