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 [livejournal.com profile] 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. :)

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, November 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'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.

The deadline for the exchange is in three weeks, on Sunday, November 29th. The official check-in post will be up at the end of the 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.

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 only have 24 participants this time, so it's a pretty small round, which is why I would ask everyone to try their best to meet the deadline (November 29th) and not finish their fic two weeks late. ;)

I know that will still overlap with NaNoWriMo, but that was unfortunately unavoidable this time. But at least it'll leave several weeks between the got-exchange and the Yuletide deadline. I hope this schedule works for most of you. And for those of you who can't participate, there'll always be another round next year. :)
