Hi, all! After all the fun we had in last year’s exchange, not to mention the release of a new book (!!!), I’m delighted to announce that the second annual fanfiction and fanart exchange will be kicking off shortly. Here’s my proposed schedule:
  • Character and relationship nominations: June 14th through the 24th at 10 PM EDT
  • Signups: June 27th through July 8th, closing at 10 PM EDT
  • Assignments sent out: July 10th at the latest
  • Fanworks due: August 19th at 10 PM EDT
  • Fanworks revealed: August 26th at 10 PM EDT
  • Artists/authors revealed: September 2nd at 10 PM EDT

I'm making a couple of minor changes this year, the most relevant of which is allowing you to nominate, request, and offer relationships as well as characters. Details on that are at the FAQ.

If you have any questions, please leave them in responses here or at the Dreamwidth account, or you can email me at hamiathesmod at gmail.

You guys are fantastic! I am thrilled this is going so smoothly. Everyone has a gift, and we are on track to open the exchange tomorrow (Sunday at the 19th) at 10 PM EDT.

What time is that for me? | Countdown to the reveal

You can keep putting the finishing touches on your stories and artwork until then.

When the collection goes live, author and artist names will still be hidden. Please don't do anything to reveal your identity (such as posting a link to your own artwork or story on your journal or Tumblr).

Two quick announcements!

Final schedule:
The amended schedule is now final. Here it is once again:Read more... )
Nominations:

There are now 27 characters approved in our tag set! You can see them here by clicking "Expand All" next to Books and Literature. The nomination form is here.

Notes:
  • Gen's mother is in the list as Gen's Mother | The Queen Thief. This doesn't match the canonical tags, but Queen Thief is confusing due to the name of the fandom, and Eugenides' Mother could be confused with the god's mother.
  • If you did intend to nominate the mother of Eugenides the god, please reply to this post or email hamiathesmod@gmail.com and let me know if you mean the woodcutter's wife or the Earth.
  • Two people nominated Relius. I've approved the first, but if you're the second, I'm leaving that nomination unapproved so you can change it if you want.

We're ready to get started! This post includes updated dates and details about nominations.

New schedule:
I've amended the proposed schedule slightly by moving signups a little earlier. This will give us about two full months to create fanworks. Nothing else has changed. If you have concerns about the new dates, please let me know - I will finalize them by the end of the week.
See the new dates )

Nominations:
This is part of the lead-in to the exchange. We're going to set up a tag set on AO3 that gives us a list of characters to choose from when requesting or offering fanfic and fanart. From the FAQ:Read more about nominations )

I will close nominations on April 1st, sometime after 10 PM EDT. After that, there'll be a cleanup period before signups begin on April 4th.

Okay, this is happening! I'm thrilled so many people are interested.

This is the first exchange I've run, so A) I'm very open to input, but B) I may err on the side of what seems simplest this time around. I'm not an artist, so I'd particularly like input on anything to do with fanart. I'm basing those requirements on what I've seen in other exchanges.

Here's the plan. Please comment with questions and suggestions.

LJ announcements will be at the [livejournal.com profile] sounis community. DW announcements will be here at the [community profile] hamiathesgiftexchange community. I'll link announcements on my Tumblr using the Hamiathes' Gift Exchange tag as well, for those of you who said that was more convenient.

The exchange is hosted here on AO3. Signups, matching, and posting of fanworks will be on AO3.

If you don't have an AO3 account, you can sign up for one here. There's a waiting list, but it doesn't usually take more than a few days, so you have plenty of time to sign up.

How nominations will work:Nominations )
How requests will work:Requests )
How offers will work:Offers )

Please spread the word. I'm so looking forward to this!
