What is a fic exchange?

You will write a fic for someone based on their request and someone else will be writing a fic for you based on your request. This is an anonymous fic exchange, so you can’t contact the person you are writing for. Authors will be revealed a couple weeks after the fics are posted.

Important Dates

Sign-ups open July 15th and close July 27th. You will be given your assignment later that week. Depending on how many participants there are, this could be within a day or two or it could take longer. They will be out by July 30th at the latest. All submissions are due by September 15th.

How It Works

  • You will sign up on ao3 and you must have an ao3 account to participate. There will be a post with directions for signing up to follow.
  • You will write out a request and an offer. The request must include at least 3 prompts as well as general information about what you’d like or wouldn’t like in a fic. The offer section will be an explanation of what you are and are not willing to write.
  • You will be e-mailed an assignment and given someone else’s request information. You will anonymously write that person a fic, choosing one of their prompts to fill. Meanwhile, someone else will receive your request and will anonymously be filling one of your prompts. 
  • The completed fic should be at least 4,000 words. There is no maximum length and you are encouraged to write longer fics if possible.
  • If you find that you absolutely cannot finish your assignment within the allowed time period, please contact me as soon as you possibly can. I do understand that things come up, so if you come down with a case of writer’s block or have something happen in your life, please let me know ASAP.
  • If you think you could write more than one fic for the exchange (or if you’re not signed up) and would like to be a pinch hitter, please let me know!
  • You will post your fic to the ao3 collection. If you need help posting, feel free to contact me with questions when the time comes.
  • If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at ziallficexchange or amioriginiall

This is an anonymous fic exchange. You will be writing a fic for someone based on their requests while someone else is writing a fic for you based on your requests. Not only does everyone get a fic written specifically for them, but the ship as a whole benefits from the influx of new fic!

Dates

Sign-ups start May 12th and close May 24th. You will be given your assignment the following week. Depending on how many participants there are, this could be within a day or two or it could take longer. They will be out by May 31st at the latest. Submissions due by July 13th.

How It Works

  • You will sign up on ao3. Specific directions for signing up will be forthcoming. You must have/create an ao3 account to participate!
  • You will write out a request and an offer. The request should include 3-5 prompts as well as general information about what you’d like or wouldn’t like in a fic. The offer section will be an explanation of what you are and are not willing to write.
  • You will be e-mailed an assignment and given someone else’s request information. You will anonymously write that person a fic, choosing one of their prompts to fill. Meanwhile, someone else will receive your request and will anonymously be filling one of your prompts. (Authors will be revealed after July 13th when the fics are completed.)
  • The completed fic should be at least 3,000 words. There is no maximum length and you are encouraged to write longer fics if possible.
  • I am available for betaing fics if you don’t have your own beta. Obviously if your go-to beta is the person you’re writing for, do not use them for this.
  • If you find that you absolutely cannot finish your assignment within the allowed time period, please contact me as soon as you possibly can. I do understand that things come up, so if you come down with a case of writer’s block or have something happen in your life, just let me know ASAP.
  • You will post your fic to the ao3 collection. If you need help posting, feel free to contact me with questions when the time comes.
  • Questions can be directed to Alison at tomlinshawficexchange or masturfates!

these are just my favorites, i didn’t want to make this too long but everyone else in my blogroll is amazing as well. <3<3

After the last Tomlinshaw fic exchange, we were incredibly spoilt with some fantastic fics (shout out to masturfates for organising that success). While there are still some Tomlinshaw fics being posted every now and then, I think the best way to satisfy our need for more of the chemistry that can only be provided by Louis Tomlinson and Nicholas Grimshaw is a ficathon!!!

wizzardblizzard had the wonderful idea of using /tagged/tomlinshaw posts (i.e. any pictures, text, prompt ideas etc. that were tagged as Tomlinshaw on tumblr. They can be from your own tumblr tag or someone else’s).

In order to get a great mix of angst, fluff, smut, and au’s, it’ll be best to have a prompts list where everyone can choose from any submitted /tagged/tomlinshaw posts, so there are no double-ups and there are a good range of topics covered. When you sign up for the ficathon, there will be space for you to submit a couple of prompts OR you can just send an ask to taggedtomlinshawficathon, and I will make a prompt masterpost for people to choose from :)

This way, people are not limited to 3-5 prompts they might have been given. If you have your own /tagged/tomlinshaw post you would like to use as a prompt, that’s fine! Just mention it in your submission and I’ll make a note of it on the masterpost.

This also means FIRST IN, BEST DRESSED. There will be NO doubling up of /tagged/tomlinshaw posts, just because there are so many out there. We DON’T NEED two of a similar kind. Therefore, everyone should submit as many prompts as possible (even if you aren’t planning on writing!) so the authors have plenty to choose from!

Dates:

Sign-up opens Thursday 4th September.

Sign-up closes Sunday 21st September.

Authors MUST inform me of what prompt they are choosing by NO LATER THAN FRIDAY 26th September. The masterpost is up now and will be updated as prompts come through, so keep an eye on it! Just send an ask here or here confirming what /tagged/tomlinshaw post you’re interested in!

Submissions are due by Sunday 30th November.

Fics will begin being posted on Wednesday 3rd December.

Helpful information:

Sign up here. It will be necessary for you to have an ao3 account to participate, but that is super easy to sort out! Feel free to message me if you have any troubles! Fics will be submitted straight to the ao3 collection.

Minimum word count is 3,000, but please, FEEL FREE TO GO FOR AS LONG AS YOU PLEASE. I know I for one could do with a few long-ass fics to keep the Tomlinshaw flame alive! In saying that, anything over 3,000 is fine and will no doubt be appreciated in this fandom!

Try to get some version of your story to a beta before the submission date, just to catch any spelling and grammatical errors, or plot inconsistencies. I am happy to beta for anyone if they don’t have a beta/their beta is unavailable etc.

This is obviously not life-or-death, so if you sign-up and something happens and you really CANNOT finish your fic, please contact me ASAP. Obviously, your life and well-being is more important than a ficathon and as this is not an exchange as such, if you do not complete your fic, you are not leaving anyone empty-handed per se. However, PLEASE DON’T SIGN UP if you’re not serious about this ficathon or think you won’t be able to finish. It is just for fun, but if heaps of people pull out last minute and then we get four fics, imagine how disappointed we’ll be (and I might cry!)

Other ways to support this ficathon:

Follow this blog. All of the fics will be posted here as well as ao3, and if anyone is kind enough to do any manips/art, they will also be posted here.

Reblog this post so as many people know about the /tagged/tomlinshaw ficathon as possible! We want as many writers covering as many posts as we can. Even if you don’t want to/can’t participate, please reblog so we can spread the word and get some interest going!

Submit prompts for the authors to choose from! Whether or not you are planning to write for the ficathon, submit some /tagged/tomlinshaw posts here for me to add to the prompts masterpost. This gives the authors plenty to choose from and so many different Tomlinshaw angles to cover.

Finally, I hope everyone involved has fun with this ficathon. I personally can’t wait to see what kind of /tagged/tomlinshaw posts people are considering and look forward to reading some quality Tomlinshaw fics come December! Please, don’t hesitate to contact me here or here if you have ANY questions at all!

MASSIVE SHOUT OUT TO NEWHARRY FOR THE FABULOUS MANIP ABOVE AND FOR DOING IT SO QUICKLY! THANK YOU!!!
