Nominations closed last midnight. Blessings on everyone who nominated!

We have now reached that near-pinnacle of fic exchange excitement known as sign-ups. Go here to make your (at least four and up to ten) requests and (at least five and up to ten) offers. You need to request at least one character per canon—and character matching is AND for now—but since a few of the canons in the tag set were nominated without characters, that may cause trouble. If it does, I'll fix it.

Before you sign up, though, you may want to write a letter to your fic-writer and post a link to it here. If you're not familiar with them, Dear Author letters are journal entries in which list your canons, the characters you'd like to request, and however many prompts you're interested in seeing written. These letters can open with a grateful and anticipatory introductory paragraph and conclude with a similar one, and they're great opportunities to list your likes and dislikes. If you have a particular squick or trigger, you should probably mention it in the letter (and in your sign-up). Your writer will be obligated to avoid including any of your DO NOT WANTs. Describing what you enjoy about the canons you request is also helpful to your writer.

Be sure to mention your AO3 name in the letter, leave said letter unlocked, and refrain from linking to a placeholder letter.

Now, go have fun.

ETA: Sign-ups are open for real now. Now they're really open for real. Try it again.

I've noticed you haven't set up the exchange as a sub-collection of a larger one. Was that intentional?

If not, you definitely can set up a master collection for the exchange as an entity and then each year gets a subcollection. I know that if you ask the AO3 people they can fix it up for you, though given there aren't any signups yet, you could just create the subcollection and link people to that instead. Let me know if this explanation doesn't make any sense and I'll try again: early morning explanations pre-caffinated beverages are not my forte.

It's pretty nifty if you're planning to run the exchange more than once. I use it for the single-fandom exchange I run and it's really helped for keeping things organised and associated with one another.

I tried to sign up, but I couldn't, because AO3 told me I had to request between 4-10 fandom per request. Which is clearly not right, because then I'd be requesting, like, a crossover. I think you want to set it so there's only one fandom tag required per request? And then at least four requests TOTAL.

Oxford Time Travel Universe — Mr. Dunworthy
The Princess Bride — Prince Humperdinck
There Will Come Soft Rains — any
Thursday Next — Miss Havisham

Yes, I've been bingeing on Oxford Time Travel this past year. No, that doesn't mean it's the only thing I want. A fic from any of these fandoms would make me happy.
