Deadline today

The deadline for your finished fic is today. Unless we've agreed on an extension, you should send in your fic by tonight. If you need a few more days or if you won't be able to finish your fic at all, please let me know, don't just disappear on me.

Posting will start tomorrow with one fic per day. I'll switch to two once everyone, including potential pinch-hitters, has sent in their fic. As always, please take the time to comment on fics you've enjoyed, even if you weren't the recipient, or if you weren't signed up for the exchange. You are obviously expected to comment on the fic written for you.

You can crosspost your fic to AO3 and other sites after it has been posted here on the community. If you like, you can then add your fic to the got-exchange collection on AO3.

Check-in post; assignments due in one week

Sorry this post is so late, I wasn't home for most of the week. Please reply to this post to let me know whether you're still on track to finish your fic/art on time. The deadline is in one week, on Sunday, September 11th.

If you have to drop out of the exchange, please let me know now so I can find a pinch-hitter. If you don't reply to this post, you'll get an email from me in a few days. If you've already sent in your fic/art, you obviously don't have to check in again.

A few things to remember when you send your fic/art to me:

1) Include a header in the following format:
Title:
Author/Artist:
For:
Pairings/Characters:
Rating:
Words:
Warnings: (don't forget to warn for spoilers)
Prompt:
(Summary, if the prompt was rather vague)

2) Fics should ideally be sent in as text files (.txt). doc, docx and odt are also fine.

3) Fic writers: please include html coding for italics etc. Make sure your formatting works and that there is a BLANK LINE between every two paragraphs, i.e. that you hit enter twice after every paragraph, not just once. You have to do this manually. It is not enough to tell Word to leave a bigger space between paragraphs because that will not show up when your fic is copied & pasted on LJ. I know that should be obvious, but there's always someone who forgets about it and it makes fics pretty hard on the eyes.

4) Your fic should be beta read or at least spell-checked very thoroughly. If you don't know anyone who can beta for you, please contact someone from this list.

Thank you. If you have any problems or questions, please talk to me.

Assignments sent

I just sent out the assignments. Please make sure you have received an email from gotexchange[at]hotmail[dot]com. If you haven't, tell me right away. I hope everyone is okay with their assignment. Most of you will probably not like all of the prompts you've been assigned, but I did my best to give everyone at least two or three prompts with characters/pairings they like. Since there have been misunderstandings about this before: you only have to fill one prompt, not several.

If you have any questions about your prompts, please contact me, not your giftee. If you have to drop out for whatever reason, tell me as soon as possible so I can look for a pinch-hitter. Don't just disappear without a word.

We have 26 participants this time, so it's another not exactly huge round, which is why I would ask everyone again to try their best to meet the deadline (September 11th) and not finish their fic two weeks late. ;)

I hope that works for most of you. There's a tumblr post you can reblog if you want to help advertise the exchange. If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know.

That's it for round fourteen!

My apologies for taking so long to post the masterlist; between the holidays and Yuletide the last week was pretty busy. You can find this round's masterlist here. Thank you to everyone who participated, and a special thank you to vanaofthevalar for pinch-hitting. I hope that everyone enjoyed participating and liked the gift they received. If you haven't commented on your gift yet, please remember to do so as soon as possible. And if you catch up on any other fics you've missed, take the time to leave a little comment, too.

If you repost your fic on AO3, you can add it to the got_exchange collection. I think I need a small modding break, and considering the low signup numbers this time maybe some of you also need a small writing break, so I'll probably wait until spring with the next round, if that's all right with everybody. Maybe until March or April, I'll see what could work. As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions, let me know. :)

Deadline today

The deadline is today. Unless we've agreed on an extension, you should send in your fic/art by the end of the day. If you need a few more days to finish your work, please let me know.  If, for whatever reason, you won't be able to finish your fic/art at all, tell me as well so I can find a pinch-hitter.

Posting starts tomorrow with one fic/art per day. Usually I switch to two posts per day once everyone has sent in their work. Please do not post your fic or art elsewhere before it has been posted here.

And the usual request to all members of the community, not just the participants: please comment. Nobody expects you to read fics you're not interested in, but if you read something anyway and enjoyed it, it doesn't take that much time and effort to write a short comment to tell the author or artist you liked their work. And it should go without saying that you are expected to leave a proper comment on the fic/art made for you; not thanking the person who spent so much time writing/drawing something for you is incredibly rude.

I hope everyone enjoyed working on their fic/art and that you will all like your gift.
