Authors Are Revealed!

Authors are revealed, thus ending the first Het Swap Exchange!

Thank you to all the participants, pinch hitters, mods from other exchanges who gave me directions/handholding through my first modding experience, and the biggest thanks goes to [personal profile] thedevilchicken who was my hero during nominations and helped turned what was an unwieldy tagset I almost couldn't go through alone into something we could easily manage together.

Hopefully I see you guys next year for round two!

Deadline has officially passed and unless you contacted me beforehand, no extensions will be granted. (There are three outstanding extensions and two pinch hits with the March 4th deadline, and these two pinches will also have the March 4th deadline if you're stressing about not having a fic yet.) As usual, comments are screened.

Assignments are out!

 Everyone should be receiving their assignment emails shortly.

Stories are due on February 28th, and are a minimum of 500 words.

I will be sending out six initial pinch hits here shortly, once I give the system time to get everyone's assignment emails out.

I have also set up an account, HetSwapCoordinator, that people can use for gifting stories they either don't think fully meet their recipient's requests, for stories that don't really follow anyone's prompts, or stories they just wanna gift to the whole archive.

New tags in the tagset, in case you need to rethink your signup

I've added three new relationships to the tagset due to mistakes on my part (that were pointed out to me after signups opened) when editing it post nominations. This should only affect people who wanted to offer "Any" in these three fandoms (no one has yet)

Aragorn | Estel/Arwen Undómiel has been added to Lord of the Rings (Movies)
Diana (Wonder Woman)/Bruce Wayne has been added to DC Cinematic Universe
Clint Barton/Kate Bishop has been added to Hawkeye (Comics). I know this one is also under MCU where it shouldn't be, but because it's easier to add than it is to remove, it will have to stick around there this year.

Signups are Open!

 I just opened up signups, they close on January 26th.

You can request and offer 3 to 6 fandoms, 1 to 10 relationships per fandom.

Signup form is here and the tagset is here.

A few fandoms that haven't been wrangled and will be listed under Uncategorized Fandoms until they are. Also, if you're having trouble finding your pairing, check under Crossover Fandom (applies to a few DC, Marvel, and Doctor Who ships where one half of the pairing was primarily in one series and the other was primarily in another but met in canon crossovers/multiverse situations).

There is also a known glitch where certain fandoms/relationships won't auto complete on the signup page, even if they're in the tagset. If that happens, just copy directly from the tagset.

A few more tagset clarifications

 So most of the issues are duplicate/migrating tags and thanks to my tagset helper we've got that mostly figured out. I do just have some questions about a few of the tags under Original Work:

Private Detective/Witch
Secretary/Dance Instructor
softball catcher/hockey goalie

None of these have genders specified. Did the nominators have genders listed, or would it be okay if I had either option available (like having separate tags for Male Barista/Female Vampire and Female Barista/Male Vampire for example)

Nominations are closed!

 I've closed off the tagset for nominations. Tomorrow and Wednesday will be for fixing duplicates/migrated tags/etc. and signups open on Thursday.

And yes, I have heard everyone's requests and will be adjusting the number of fandoms/relationships everyone can request and offer. I'll let you know what the new numbers are when signups open.

Nomination Queries

Hi all! Sorry for somewhat radio silence, been busy.

I have just about all the noms up to this point approved (thanks to adding on a second tag moderator since I got a bit overwhelmed. Thanks for the enthusiasm though!), but just have a few queries about some of the noms:
  • The Sandman (Comics): Someone nominated Destruction of the Endless/Ishtar and AO3 is suggesting a switch to Beili/Destruction of the Endless which is the canonical. Is this a safe swap to do or are Beili and Ishtar two separate characters?
  • Two queries in Misfits (TV 2009)
    • Alisha Daniels/Superhoodie: Who is Superhoodie, I couldn't locate this person when researching the show.
    • Simon Bellamy/Curtis Donovan as Melissa: I did research and know that Curtis Donovan and Melissa are the same person (canon genderswap, which is allowed). However, would Simon Bellamy/Melissa be a better tag to use?
  • The Flash (TV 2014): Both Caitlin Snow/Eddie Thawne and Killer Frost/Eddie Thawn were nominated. Research says Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost are the same person? Any reason why they should be split?
  • Bates Motel (2013): Pairings nominated were Caleb Calhoun/Marion Crane, Norma Bates/Alex Romero, Norma Bates/Caleb Calhoun, Norma Bates/Norman Bates, and Norman Bates/Cody Brennan. However, all of these characters appear in the Bates Motel TV show, but not the 2013 movie. Would changing the fandom to the TV show work?
  • The Hobbit - All Media Types: Pairings nominated wre Bard the Bowman/Dís, Bofur (Tolkien)/Tilda (Hobbit Movies), Dís/Thranduil (Tolkien), Éowyn/Frerin (Tolkien), and Kíli (Tolkien)/Tauriel (Hobbit Movies). Did the nominator want the book or the movies?
I think we're at a point where these (and anything added since I post this) would be all left to approve!

Nominations are open!

Nominations are open until January 16th/17th!

Five fandoms, with up to five pairings in each.

Please don't nominate threesomes/moresomes as that can lead to situations of M/M or F/F and while I personally love both of them, that's not what this exchange is about.

For crossover pairings, please nominate them under "Crossover Fandom" and disambiguate the characters.

Also, any gen pairings (using an "&" designator versus a "/" designator) will be rejected.
