Welcome to the Spring 2012 Fic Exchange!

It's a brand-new month, and what better way to get it going than with our very first fic exchange!

So that we can keep the time frame relatively short, let's aim for shorter fic this time -- a minimum of 1,000 words, maximum of 5,000 words (unless your muse really goes wild and you're sure you can finish within the allotted time).  The finish line/posting date will be Sam's birthday, May 2.

We'd like everyone to end up working with a prompt they really like, so rather than the mods matching everyone up, we're going to let the participants pop back in and claim a fellow writer as their "exchange buddy."  Then, midway through the process, we'll ask each writer to post a short blurb about their story so that the artists who'd like to participate can stake a claim.  (Since these will be short fics, we'll ask the artist to contribute a small banner or a single illo, perhaps an icon -- unless, again, their muses go wild!)  From that point, writer and artist can work together to produce a finished little gem to share with the comm.

Added to clarify:  When you come back to claim a "buddy," you'll be claiming the person, along with all of their prompts.  That person -- along with all of their prompts -- then gets crossed off the "available" list.

Sound good?  Here's the timeline...

Schedule
Sign-ups:  March 1-March 10
Claiming:  March 11-March 15
Posting of story synopsis:  March 31
Finished story/art posting:  May 2

You can sign up by commenting to this post.  Please include 3-5 prompts -- meaty enough to give a potential buddy a good idea of what you're looking for.  (Remember to keep them somewhat simple, so that your buddy won't need to produce a Big Bang to cover everything -- we're hoping to offer you guys a Big Bang challenge later in the year.)  If you have any questions, you can either ask them here, or PM the mods.

Because your devoted mods are somewhat HTML-challenged, here's a questionnaire for you to copy and paste into your comment.

Favorite Character(s) to Write:
Character(s) You Prefer NOT to Write (if any):
Slash? (Y/N) And if ‘Yes’, does that include Wincest?
Het? (Y/N):
Favorite Pairing(s) or Do You Prefer Gen?
Crossovers (Y/N) And if ‘Yes’, what fandom(s):
Schmoop, humor, full-on crack, or some combination thereof?
Preferred/Maximum Story Rating (G, PG, R, NC17):
Can you act as a pinch-hitter if the need arises? (Y/N)
Additional Comments:

And...we're off and running!  Have fun, gang.  :)
