2016 Good Omens Exchange Sign-Ups Post

Hello, Exchangelings! We are ready to go, and we are opening the sign-up process for our twelfth year of holiday delights! That’s right. Good Omens Exchange has operated every holiday season since 2005, so by now it's something of a fandom institution. A few participants have been in every single one.

Here's how it works:

On THIS post, request 3 different prompt scenarios you'd like to receive in either art or fic form, listed like this:


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 sign-ups 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, October 12th, at midnight EST), we will ask you to select your top choices in a screened comment. Prompt claiming will be open until a date we'll specify in the prompts post. At the end of the prompt selection period, we will make final assignments based on your selected prompts. Assignments will be sent out the last 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:


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, goodomens[dot]exchange[at]gmail[dot]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 twelve days from today to submit your screened comment with your prompts to this post. Your deadline is Wednesday, October 12th, at midnight (EST).

Now go wild! And questions should be emailed to us at goodomens[dot]exchange[at]gmail[dot]com.

Click here for examples from previous years' prompts (and here for all of the gifts that resulted).

Your 2016 mods are irisbleufic (who is glad to be back after last year's health chaos) and vulgarweed. As usual, musegaarid is behind the wonderful community banner-art revamp; our featured artist this year is tio-trile.

Brushing the dust off!

It's September!!!!

That means we are at work behind the scenes to start up for another year!

The 2015 Exchange Reveal!

Well, that's a wrap, Exchangelings - another year of fantastic fic and art for everyone. Your mods would like to thank all participants, and a special shout-out to our beta readers and pinch-hitters.

The following is the list of Who Done Made What. Now you are free to rec, thank your creators by name, and repost your works wherever you like.

And that's all for this year, folks! Thanks again for another fantastic exchange!

Happy Holidays, AJ Crowlor!

The Reason for the Season
Author: A Secret
recipient: ajcrowlor
Pairing: Aziraphale/Crowley
Rating: NC-17/E

Summary: Adam and Pepper, now married with children of their own, worry that their kids might be losing some of the magic of the season. Adam calls in a little favour from some old friends - with a nice little bonus that's in it for them. Established relationship A/C, a little fluff, a little comedy, a little Bentley smut.

Happy Holidays, ajcrawlor, from your Secret Writer!

Happy Holidays, bravinto!

Title: You're Angry When You're Beautiful
Recipient: bravinto
Rating: PG
Notes: PAIRING/PLOT BUNNY/RATING CHOICE ONE: Aziraphale, at some point in time, past, or preferrably, future, suddenly becomes the hot one because beauty standards shift. could be any rating, from gen to explicit, with or without pairing (if it's shippy, i'd prefer endgame Aziraphale/Crowley but anything can go before that!)

Okay, it's not EXACTLY what you asked for, but omg this plot bunny gave me rabies and I couldn't control what came out. I hope you enjoy it anyway!

Cover and article based on TATLER magazine, with a twist. Most background images are stock photos or were heavily edited from originals found while Googling. There is one street scene I personally took while in London in 2006, so at least I can legitimately claim copyright to that photo. "The Angel" was a real bookshop on Duck Lane in Soho... back in the 1600's. Notes for that are far too long to detail here, but you can Google that too ;)

Happy Holidays, Lunasong!

Title: Jesus Was Someone You Could Sit Down and Have a Beer With
Recipient: lunasong
Rating: PG
Pairings and Characters: Adam Young/Pepper, implied Crowley/Aziraphale, Marvin O. Bagman
Prompt: Rev. Marvin O. Bagman/What happened after he was possessed by Aziraphale on his 'Hour of Power' broadcast? Was it something he was able to spin into even greater glory or did it ruin his ministry?
Word Count: 2,583
Disclaimer: All copyrighted material referred to in this work, and the characters, settings, and events thereof, are the properties of their respective owners. This work is not created for profit and constitutes fair use.
Summary: Alarmed by recent developments across the pond, Aziraphale implores Adam to allow people to remember That Saturday. Crowley’s mostly just in it for the wine.

Happy Holidays, Lunasong, from your Secret Writer!

Happy Holidays, Vulgarweed!

Title: I Run into You and Just Keep Running
For: Vulgarweed
Beta: Cactusrabbit
Rating: R
Pairings: Aziraphale/Crowley
Characters: Aziraphale, Crowley
Warnings: None
Summary:  No matter the time or place in history, Crowley and Aziraphale keep bumping into each other in places where men go to be with other men, and there’s no polite way to watch someone else getting felt up.

Author's Notes:  This story has bits that had to be left out for the sake of brevity but they will be added in later on and a sequel to this has already begun, much to my surprise. I couldn’t have asked for a more incredible idea or an idea that stretched me more as an author. I am so grateful to Vulgarweed for this prompt: “Aziraphale/Crowley; gay/bi-male history through the ages. No matter where or when, in every century, those two man-shaped beings who aren’t exactly men keep glimpsing each other in social spaces frequented by men who like to have sex with other men (certain taverns, parks, bath-houses, brothels, etc..). I imagine they’re both very awkward about it. But there must be a turning point.” You have given so much to this wonderful fandom and I am honored to have been able to write for you. I wish you the absolute happiest of holidays and a joyous New Year!
