3. Before you sign-up, please, make sure that there are no obstacles for you to be able to submit your gift on time (i.e. final exams, scheduled surgery, family reunion, etc). Remember that by abandoning your assignment you leave someone without a gift, and finding a pinch-hitter at the last moment isn't easy. I understand that there can always be some unpredictable circumstances. As soon as you realise that you will be unable to fulfil your obligation let the mod know at orpheus_on_samhain_night at yahoo co uk. Without any explanations, simply "I quit". Your gift will be re-assigned and pinch-hitter will take over your place.
4. All themes, genres and ratings are allowed, including, but not limited to: canon, missing scenes, AU, dark!fic, what-if!scenarios, time-travel, dystopia, romance, fluff, PWP, love, hate, revenge, remorse, etc.
5. Fic must be at least 1,500 words long, spell-checked and beta-read. Artists must think of an equivalent, certainly something more than a quick sketch. The mod reserves the right to return your work with request to correct it, if she thinks that these criteria have not been met. Moreover, your fic cannot be a part of your earlier work - the recipient may not be familiar with it. Your fic must contain all HTML codes you wish to include (italics, bold, etc).
A few beta-readers resources. Please, secure your beta-reader early on, to avoid delay.
6. Please, use this form to sign-up [right-click in the area, choose 'select all', right-click again, select 'copy' and paste the text into your comment]:
Be as specific or vague as you like.
As a creator please remember that the things listed as your recipient's 'no-nos' must not appear in your work for them.
As a recipient please remember that your 'likes' are a guide for an artist/author but don't expect them to include every single one if you listed many.
7. After receiving your assignment you will have to confirm it via return mail within 3 days. If not, it will be re-assigned.
8. You must not post your work elsewhere or reveal in any other manner the authorship of your work until the Reveal List will be posted here.
I hope I thought about everything. If not, ask.
