Holiday Fic Trade 2011  
Hey, guys. Even with the site down, KS is still running fic trade. A few modifications had to be made due to the site being down, so please pay attention and bear with me through the long explanation.



1. HOW IS THIS GOING TO WORK?

-It will be done entirely by email, not posted on the site. You will be free to post your submissions to the site under your own username on January 1st or later, of course.
-We won't need betas for this round. Since everything is going through email unvalidated authors don't have to worry about finding a validated beta reader who is participating to post for them or going through the queue and having a mod reassign the name. (KS will just "validate" and send it along or "decline" and return it with a list of errors that need to be fixed.)
-If you are not validated and feel that you need a beta, feel free to use your normal beta rather than a fic trade beta.
-KS does have a list of fic trade betas, though. So if you really need one and don't have one already, let her know.
-We do still need spares, though, just in case someone has an unforeseen issue that pops up and prevents them from doing the fic trade.
-Even if the site comes back up before the deadline, KS intends to run this round through email, just in case it's still having issues or goes back down again.



2. PARTICIPANTS.

Thanks to the lovely Kay, who just happened to have the thread open when the site went down, 18 profiles have been recovered. KS believes this is everyone who posted in the original registration thread. Here is the list of people whose profiles are recorded.

If you are NOT on that list and want to participate, email kerrigansheehan [at] yahoo [dot] com by DECEMBER 10. The form can be found below.



3. DEADLINES.

We haz them.

-KS is keeping the posting deadlines as the 25th for most fics and the 31st for the 5,000+ word fics and spares, but the registration deadline will be extended.
-KS is going to hand out assignments on Sunday, Decmeber 11th. She will start matching before then, but she can shuffle things around as long as you get your registration to her by email by Saturday the 10th. The earlier the better, though.
-Start sending in fics at any time after your prompts are given. Email them to kerrigansheehan [at] yahoo [dot] com. They will be re-emailed to your recipient.



4. I WANT TO SEND MY FIC. NOW WHAT?

Email it to kerrigansheehan [at] yahoo [dot] com. She will send it to your recipient.



5. THE FORM.

For those of you who haven't yet registered, here is the registration form. Please remember that the fourth prompt must be regardless of fandom, meaning that it can be written as OF or in any fandom.

You can't, not until the site is back up. Sorry!
