Sign-Ups Close Soon

Sign-ups will close at 9 PM CDT. Here's a countdown timer.

I noticed that some of the sign-ups are missing DNWs. This isn't against the rules but it would be a good idea to add a list of what you don't want for the exchange. DNWs are the only thing that your artist is required to stick to from your optional details and if you don't have any listed it looks like you're up for body fluids, noncon, character death, flower crowns, and anything else that your artist thinks up. If you're really fine with anything then adding "DNWs: None" would be clearer for your artist.

Letter Post

You can link your letters here. Make sure to include your AO3 username. The DW post is here.

Last round, some people said they weren't sure how to write art prompts. There's no wrong way to go about it but some general tips are:

  • List Do Not Wants and Likes (art tropes, fan tropes, kinks, plots, art styles (do you want canon-style?), typography, etc)

  • Mention what you like about a character/ship/fandom (this can help your artist brainstorm their own ideas)

  • Short actions can make great prompts ("X throws a sleep over", "X and Y [do thing] together", "Z is comforting X", etc)

  • AUs can work well too ("Vampire AU", "Y as a Junji Ito character", "this canon as an anime")

  • Describe scenes in detail

  • If you picked something from Original Works or Crossover Fandom, it can be helpful if you explain what drew you to that tag. For instance, if you picked "A Tree" what sort of tree are you interested in seeing? An inked birch? Something Yggdrasil-like? A man-eating tree?

  • Fic prompts can be good for art too but it can be helpful to single out a few images from a story idea that you'd be interested in seeing in case your artist doesn't have time to make comics/animations

  • If you ask for banners, wallpapers, icons, reaction images, pixels, or transparents make sure to specify what sizes you would need

  • Remember that your requests can be as long or as short as you want.
