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.

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 and enjoy something anyway, 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 just 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 a bit over two weeks, on Sunday, November 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 with me if you've already sent in your fic.

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 other questions, please talk to me.

The deadline for the exchange is in three weeks, on Sunday, November 2nd. The official check-in post will be up next week, but if you already know that you will have to drop out, please let me know as soon as possible so I can start looking for a pinch-hitter.

If you need a beta reader, you can contact someone from this list. You can also still sign up there to beta read for other people. If you have any problems or questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

And a small signal boost: if you need a little break from working on your exchange fic, the Five Acts Meme is happening right now. It's a neat little multi-fandom comment fic meme that could use some more participants, so have a look if you're interested. :)

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. My apologies for the delay: usually I'm done with the assignments by Sunday, but some things came up and I didn't get around to finishing everything until today. 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.

There are 39 participants this time.Thanks to everyone for participating and have fun with your prompts.

That's it for this round of the exchange. You can find the masterlist here. There haven't been a lot of comments in the last week, so please 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 the gift made specifically for you: if you haven't done that yet, please remember to do so soon. It's very rude not to thank the person who wrote/drew something just for you. I hope that everyone enjoyed participating and liked their gift. If you repost your fic on AO3, you can add it to the got_exchange collection. Thanks to all participants, and especially to [livejournal.com profile] vanaofthevalar for pinch-hitting.

This was already the tenth round of [livejournal.com profile] got_exchange. I had no idea how big and long-running this exchange would become when I started it almost exactly three years ago, but I'm so happy about it. I always have a lot of fun organising this, and I'm very grateful to all of you for participating, for writing and drawing and commenting and making this whole thing possible. As always, if you have any suggestions or feedback, please tell me.

I'd suggest that we do the next round of the exchange fairly soon, because I know that there are a lot of exchanges, gift swaps, Yuletide etc. at the end of the year, not to mention that real life gets busy for most of us around that time. That's why I'd like to have everything wrapped up before December, so everyone can focus on other things in December and we can just start the exchange round after that in the new year.

So here's the schedule for round 11:
- sign-ups will be open from September 1st to September 12th
- assignments will be sent out on September 14th
- the deadline will be on November 2nd
- posting will start on November 3rd


Btw, since summer is holiday time, if you already know that you won't be able to fill in the sign-up form in early September, feel free to send me an email with your sign-up info using last round's form. This goes only for people who absolutely won't be able to sign up 'normally' because they won't have internet access or whatever - I don't want to get twenty email sign-ups now. ;)

Also, for those of you who are interested, there's a new multi fandom femslash exchange. Sign-ups for that are currently open.
