Intro:

Unconventional Fanworks Exchange is an exchange focused on fanwork of the sort not often seen in exchanges: poetry, Choose Your Own Adventure / other interactive fiction, audio not!fic, meta, in-universe texts, vidding, &c. If you can create it and post it (and it's not traditional fic or art), you can probably create it for this exchange!

Note that due to the nature of this exchange, it may rely more heavily on "put in a good-faith effort" than other exchanges. Please create a quality gift you would be pleased to receive!

FAQ:

What counts as "unconventional fanwork"?
 

That's really up to your discretion. Some examples would be podfic, vids, audio not!fic, meta, in-universe texts, interactive fiction, poetry, or multimedia works. If you're not sure, you can ask at the page-a-mod post on Dreamwidth: here.

 

How do we choose the type of fanwork to offer/request?

 

This will be done through freeform tag nominations. You will have five spots for freeforms during the nomination period. Please feel free to be specific with broader categories (for example, "Haiku Series" or "Sonnet" rather than "Poetry").

 

What are the minimum requirements?

 

It varies by type of fanwork -- for specifics, see the Rules section, but the general rule of thumb is to put in a good faith effort. You are expected to create a quality gift you would be pleased to receive.

Rules:

Nominations:

 

 

 

 

 

The form will allow you to nominate five fandoms with ten character slots each, as well as five freeform tags.

For character nominations, please nominate individual characters with the canonical tag where possible. For groups of characters, please use the format "Group: A & B" or "Group: A/B" -- these should also be nominated under the character slots.

Freeform tags should be a type of fanwork. Please feel free to be specific with broader categories (for example, "Haiku Series" or "Sonnet" rather than "Poetry"). Freeforms that do not specify a type of fanwork will be deleted.

 

Signup:

 

You will be required to request 3-10 distinct fandoms with 1-10 characters or groups, along with one or more freeforms to determine the fanwork medium. Multiple prompts within the same fandom are allowed as long as there are at least three distinct fandoms in your signup.

You will be required to offer 4-10 distinct fandoms with 1-10 characters or groups, along with one or more freeforms to determine the fanwork medium. Multiple prompts within the same fandom are allowed as long as there are at least four distinct fandoms in your signup.

If your offers do not allow you to match with any requests, you will be contacted via email by the mod and asked to add or change an offer so you can be matched. If this isn't possible or if you delay more than 48 hours responding, your signup will be deleted.

Pieces that involve explicitly stated DNWs will result in the creator banned from this exchange for one future round, and the recipient will go out as a pinch hit to receive a gift that complies with their requests. DNWs included in places other than the AO3 signup (such as in a letter) will not be enforced.

 

Assignments:

 

OR matching will be done based on fandom, character, and freeform. You are guaranteed to match only on one fandom, one character, and one freeform.

You will be required to produce a fanwork based on your recipient's requests. If the freeform you matched on provides a general guideline (such as certain poetry forms), that will be the minimum requirement. If the freeform you matched on does not provide a general guideline:

Written Work:
There will be a 1,000-word minimum for meta, in-universe texts, and similar.

Interactive Fiction:
Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style works should also meet the 1,000-word minimum.

Audio:
Podfic and audio not!fic of existing works must have permission from the original creator(s) and be a minimum of 1,000 words in its original form. Original audio work must be at least five minutes of edited content. A piece written and podficced specifically for this exchange should be a minimum of 500 written words.

Vidding:
Minimum requirement is 45 seconds of edited video.

Other Types of Fanwork:
This exchange may rely more heavily on "put in a good-faith effort" than other exchanges due to the nature of the fanwork. You are expected to create a quality gift you would be pleased to receive. Please keep that in mind when both requesting and offering. If there is another common type of fanwork missing here, please feel free to contact me by commenting on the page-a-mod post or private messaging me on Dreamwidth.
