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.

The deadline is in two weeks, on Sunday, August 2nd. Please reply to this post to let me know whether you will be able to finish your fic/art on time or not. If you have to drop out, please tell me now so I can find a pinch-hitter. Don't wait until the deadline to drop out, and don't just disappear without a word. If you think you will need a small extension, please tell me as soon as possible, but I'd appreciate if everyone could at least try to meet the deadline. If you don't reply to this post in the next few days, you'll get an e-mail from me. Obviously you don't have to check in if you've already sent in your fic/if you've already dropped out.


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.

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.

For the record, there are 37 participants this time. Thanks to everyone for participating and have fun with your prompts.

I just closed the poll. About half of you voted for the next round happening right away, but since the other half voted for sign-ups later, I've decided to wait for a few weeks to accommodate as many people as possible. So here's the schedule for round 13:

- sign-ups will open on Monday, June 1st
- sign-ups will close on Friday, June 12th
- assignments will be sent out on Sunday, June 14th
- obligatory check-in post on July 18th
- the deadline for your completed fic/art is Sunday, August 2nd
- posting will start on Monday, August 3rd


I hope that works for most of you. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

The last fics for round 12 have been posted this week. You can find the masterlist here. If you catch up on any fic and art you've missed, please take the time to comment. This goes especially for everyone who hasn't commented on their gift yet.

If you repost your fic on AO3, you can add it to the got_exchange collection. Thanks to everyone who has participated by writing, drawing, beta-reading, and commenting, and a special thank you to [livejournal.com profile] thinkatory and [livejournal.com profile] janie_tangerine for pinch-hitting. I hope that everyone enjoyed participating and liked the gift they received.

Since this round was relatively small, I'm wondering if maybe there's a bit of an exchange fatigue going about? So I figured I'd make a poll again to ask you guys when you want the next round to take place. I'll leave it open for a few days and then set the schedule for the next round accordingly.

[Poll #2009341]

As always, if you have any suggestions or questions, let me know. And thanks again to everyone for participating. :)

If you need a few more days to finish your work, please let me know.  Please try to finish as soon as possible, though, because this round is rather small and I'd rather not have to give anyone a two week extension.

The deadline is in a bit over two weeks, on Sunday, March 29th. Please reply to this post to let me know whether you will be able to finish your fic/art on time or not. If you have to drop out, please tell me now so I can find a pinch-hitter. Don't wait until the deadline to drop out, and don't just disappear without a word. If you think you will need a small extension, please tell me as soon as possible, but I would ask you to try and meet the deadline rather than send in your fic two weeks late. If you don't reply to this post in the next few days, you'll get an e-mail from me. Obviously you don't have to check in with me if you've already sent in your fic.

There are 28 participants this time, which makes this the smallest round of the exchange so far. That also means that I would ask you to do your best to meet the deadline because the posting period will obviously be shorter this time, so I can't give anyone overly long extensions.

Thanks to everyone for participating and have fun with your prompts.

- assignments will be sent out on Sunday, February 8th
- obligatory check-in post on March 14th

I hope that works for most of you, and I'm looking forward to the next round.

As you've probably seen, the remaining fics for round 11 were posted last weekend. You can find the masterlist here. For some reason comments have been very sparse this exchange, so it'd be great if everyone could take the time to comment when you catch up on fics you've missed. It should go without saying that you are expected to comment on your gift fic - it's very rude not to thank the person who wrote something just for you.

If you repost your fic on AO3, you can add it to the got_exchange collection. Thanks to everyone who has participated, and a special thank you to the pinch-hitters: [livejournal.com profile] mautadite, [livejournal.com profile] yunie1281, [livejournal.com profile] crossingwinter, [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire, and [livejournal.com profile] janie_tangerine. You guys are amazing and I can't thank you enough for writing an extra fic, and in a very short time, too.

I'm sorry that posting took so long this round. Unfortunately there was an unusual number of very late drop-outs, and a lot of other people just disappeared for a few weeks before they sent in their fic. I'd really appreciate if everyone could try a bit harder to meet the deadline next time. And if, for whatever reason, you can't meet the deadline or you can't finish your fic at all, please keep me updated instead of just disappearing and not replying to my emails. It makes my job a lot harder if I don't know whether I should be looking for a pinch-hitter or not.

That being said, I hope that everyone enjoyed participating and liked the gift they got. Obviously we'll wait until the new year for the next round of the exchange, since the next weeks will already be busy enough for most people. I'm aiming for sign-ups in mid to late January and a deadline in late March/early April. Does that sound generally good to everyone? I will post an exact schedule for round 12 in a couple of weeks.

Again, thanks to everyone who has participated, and don't forget to comment some more on this round's fics. :) As always, if you have any suggestions or questions, let me know.
