Participants are able to offer and request fanart, fanfiction, fanvids, or podfic.

Please nominate original works under "Original Work" for the fandom.

For example: Mary Poppins (Mary Poppins)/Ms. Frizzle (Magic School Bus)/Thirteenth Doctor (Doctor Who), or F!Shepard (Mass Effect)/Garrus Vakarian (Mass Effect)/M!Hawke (Dragon Age), or Hal Jordan (Green Lantern 2011)/Ryan Reynolds (RPF)/Wade Wilson (Deadpool).

RPF characters must be 18+ at the time of nomination. Significant others/children/etc. of public figures are not permitted unless they are public figures in their own right.

You must have an Archive of Our Own (AO3) account to participate in the exchange. If you do not have one already, please e-mail the mod for an invite code (holly.poly.exchange@gmail.com).

 

 

Signups:

 

You can edit or delete your signup until signups close. Once assignments go out, please notify the mod immediately if you cannot create a fanwork for the exchange.

 
Requests:

Participants will have an option to select whether they want to receive fanart, fanfiction, fanvids, and/or podfics. You do not need to request any medium(s) that you would not want to receive.

Signups must include 3-10 fandoms, and each fandom must have 1-20 relationships from the list of nominated relationships. While it is acceptable to offer/request the minimum, please remember that the more relationships you ask for and offer, the easier matching will be.

Participants may request "any" relationship in a given fandom, but please check the tag set to ensure that you're comfortable receiving a fanwork for any relationship that is listed. If you provide prompts in that situation, please make certain to do so for all relationships. Please be aware than "any" means any; you cannot specify that you do not want a specific nominated relationship if you choose "any."

Participants will be matched on fandom, relationship, and medium (fanart, fanfic, fanvid, podfic).

While the optional details section of signups is optional, it is strongly suggested that participants include Do Not Wants. Any DNWs or triggers included in the signup itself will be enforced by the mod. Any DNWs listed in letters but not the signup itself, as well as any general likes/dislikes/prompts/etc. listed in the signup or in letters, are optional for the creator.

Anyone requesting vids are encouraged to list any accessibility requirements they have in their sign-up alongside other DNWs, eg. no flashing lights, fast-moving cuts, etc.

 

 

Offers:

 

Participants may offer to create fanfart, fanfiction, fanvids, and/or podfic.

You may offer between 3-10 fandoms, with 1-20 relationships per fandom. Participants may offer "any" relationship in a given fandom, but please check the tag set to ensure that you're comfortable creating a fanwork for any relationship listed. Please be aware than "any" means any; you cannot specify that you do not want to create a work for a specific nominated relationship if you choose "any."

Participants will be matched on fandom, relationship, and medium (fanart, fanfic, fanvid, podfic).

 

 

Pinch Hits:

 

Anyone who is interested can sign up for pinch hits at this link You do not have to be signed up to participate in the exchange in order to claim pinch hints.

If we have any issues matching someone, they will go out as a pinch hit right away.

 

 

Assignments:

 

Your fanwork must focus on a requested relationship. You are not obligated to produce something for all relationships on which you are matched; you must create a fanwork for any one that you choose from your assignment. If you want to create a fanwork for more than one relationship that your recipient requested, feel free.

You do not have to create a fanwork for the fandom and/or relationship you were matched on if something else that your recipient requested interests you.

Creators may not include any DNWs or triggers listed in the optional details section of their assignment itself. Any DNWs listed in letters but not the signup itself, as well as any general likes/dislikes/prompts/etc. listed in the assignment or in their participant's letter, are optional for the creator.

Betas are not required, but are strongly encouraged.

Due to the nature of this exchange, it is difficult for extensions to be given. 24 hours is the maximum extension that will be granted. If you know you won't be able to submit by the due date, please default as soon as possible.

If you default prior to the default deadline, you may participate next year without any issues. If you default after the default deadline but before the final deadline, you will be required to write a treat in order to participate in the next exchange. If you default two years in a row, do not submit your work by the due date without any warning, submit an unfinished work, or delete your already-completed assignment, you will not be able to participate in the next exchange.

If you withdraw from the exchange and the person assigned to create something for you also withdraws, you will not be assigned a pinch hitter.

Please contact us immediately at holly.poly.exchange@gmail.com if you have any issues or questions regarding your assignment.

 

 

Posting:

 

Treats may be any length or medium.

There is an anon period for this exchange. Creator names will be revealed one week after the archive goes live. Please do not promote your fanwork before that time.

The anon period for fanart and fanvids is optional. Because of concerns about crossposting without attribution, artists and vidders may sign their work or post to their regular streaming site account (Vimeo, YouTube, etc.), but they are requested not to crosspost the full art or vid until the end of the anon period.
