Hello, Exchangelings! We are ready to go, and we are opening the sign-up process for our eleventh
year of holiday delights!
That’s right. Good Omens Exchange has operated every holiday season since 2005. (A few participants have been in every one!)
Here's how it works:
In THIS post right here, leave a request for three different prompt scenarios you'd like to receive in either art or fic form, listed like this:PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE ONE:PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE TWO:PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE THREE:I LIKE THESE STORY ELEMENTS/KINKS:I DISLIKE THESE STORY ELEMENTS/KINKS:EMAIL ADDRESS:
You MUST include your email address with your request. Comments will be screened, and no one but the mods will see them. We'll copy and paste them into a list with names redacted for participants to choose from.
When signups close, that post will open for claiming, and participants will choose the prompts they want to create from that anonymized list of prompts/requests, so anonymity will be preserved both ways. Please read directions carefully.
In other words, you will be choosing a prompt, but you will not know whose prompt you’re taking. And, as always, you will not know who requested or received your prompt until the reveal shortly after New Year’s!THIS IS THE SIGN-UPS POST.
Comments will be screened. Your prompts will be processed as quickly as possible and added to the list of anonymous request prompts. At the end of the sign up period (Wednesday, September 23 at midnight EST), we will ask you to select your top choices in a screened comment. Prompt claming will be open until Wednesday, September 30th. At the end of the prompt selection period, we will make final assignments based on your selected prompts. Assignments will be sent out the first weekend of October, and gifts will be due no later than November 30. Posting of the gifts begins on December 1.
So, in a nutshell:
When making your prompts, use this template, same as last year:
1. Cut and paste this prompt format into your reply post:PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE ONE:PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE TWO:PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE THREE:I LIKE THESE STORY ELEMENTS/KINKS:I DISLIKE THESE STORY ELEMENTS/KINKS:EMAIL ADDRESS:
2. Answer clearly and thoroughly, as appropriate. Other participants will be reading through your anonymized prompts for the purpose of selecting the gifts that they would like to give. Note that artists may prefer simplified prompts—or that they may choose to simplify your detailed prompts. You MUST include a working email address where we can contact you. Correspondence with mods is done through our email account, email@example.com, NOT through LJ or Tumblr messages.
Try to vary your requests if possible, so that some are specific and some are wide open. Also keep in mind that prompts should be amenable to either fic or art. Crossovers are welcome, but we ask that you limit it to only one of your three requests.
You have one week from today to submit your screened comment with your prompts to this post. Your deadline is Wednesday, September 23, at midnight (EST).
Now go wild! And questions should be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org

for all of the gifts that resulted).irisbleufic
