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:

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 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:

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, 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.
