This is the sign-up post FOR AUTHORS who wish to participate in the 2nd Annual spn_bigpretzel Spring Fic Exchange. ARTISTS will sign-up at a later date, once we know which stories need illustrating. And, yes, you can participate as both an author and an artist if you wish.
How does it work for authors? In a nutshell, anyone who wants to participate will need to include 3-5 prompts on this post and list any preferences they may have (see questionnaire below). 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." (see schedule below). To be clear - 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. Once claimed, feel free to work with your buddy to tailor the story to them.
How does it work for artists? 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.
Sign-ups: March 1-March 10
Claiming: March 11-March 15
Posting of story synopsis for artist claiming: March 31
Finished story/art posting: May 2*
*May extend the posting schedule to multiple days, depending on number of participants.
Please copy and paste the questions below into the comments and fill in the blanks along with leaving your 3-5 prompts. Remember, this is bigpretzel, so keep the prompts light in tone. No dark!fic, no rip-your-heart-out angst, nothing intended to depress the reader for weeks, and no RPS, please. Think humorous or aww. You know the drill :) ETA: Crossover prompts are more than welcome

Note: This little questionnaire is intended to aid an author in tailoring their story to your preferences. It probably doesn't need to be said, but please don't bash in your preferences. If you *really* dislike a certain character, genre, etc - be diplomatic about it, because someone else here may love it. For example - Preferences: No YEK stories. - As opposed to - Preferences: That stupid, smelly, demon-cat makes me want to puke and I will RAGE if you write me a YEK story.
