Welcome to hp_backtosmut, a back-to-school smutfic exchange featuring slash, femmeslash, and het!
Signups will open on 1 April and close on 12 April; assignments will be sent out by 22 April, and stories will be due in my inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1 August. Posting will commence on 1 September 22 September, and authors will be revealed on 3 October 18 October.
1. Because this is a smut exchange, you must be 18 as of 1 September, 2006 in order to play. This is not negotiable.
2. If you sign up, you are expected to either a. turn in a fic, or b. notify me as soon as possible that you will be unable to, so that I can find a pinch-hit. I don't think we need to go into how disappointing it is to write something for an exchange and not get a story back in return.
3. All stories must be spellchecked, beta-read if at all possible, rated R or NC-17 (seeing as how this is, in fact, a smut exchange), and at least 1000 words in length.
4. This is not precisely a rarepairs exchange, but the following pairings will be excluded based on the fact that they completely dominate every other non-rarepairs exchange and I am kind of tired of reading them:
5. There will be no art in this exchange. Sorry, artists. It's not that I don't like you, I promise.
6. There is no rule number 6.
7. All kinks are welcome, but stories must have appropriate warnings appended.
8. Submitted stories must be in .doc or .rtf format with all bold, underline, or italic tags added and Smart Quotes turned off, and they must have the following header:
9. If your story does not have proper warnings, or if your tags are not in order and I have to go in and add them myself, I will be very annoyed and rather likely to post your gift last in retribution.
10. You are free and welcome to post your fic elsewhere after 3 October, but please hold off until then.
11. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via email or AIM (stephanometra).
Please friend this community! I will post reminders before important dates and such.
