What is this?:
Soul Exchange is a fanfic and fanart exchange for soulmate and soulbond tropes. Participants will match on relationships, tropes, and type of fanwork they want to offer/receive.
Once nominations are underway, I'll put up a post in this community to list all of the tropes nominated since tag sets can be kind of confusing to read. Nominators will be able to comment in that post with explanations of rare or potentially confusing tropes.
( Nominations: Now closed. )
( Signups: Now closed. )
Fanfic assignments should be a minimum of 1000 words. Fanart assignments should be at least inked line-art on white paper or polished digital art; no pencil sketches, lined paper, or obviously unfinished work.
Treats are allowed, and have no minimum limitations. You may post treats in the main collection whenever you like.
Assignments will go out as early as possible on April 19. You will have until June 3 to complete and upload your assignment.
If you are not able to complete your assignment, please go to your "My Assignments" page and click the "Default" button before 11:59 PM UTC on May 31.
You will not be allowed to participate in Soul Exchange in the future if you default after the default deadline, fail to turn in your assignment before the posting deadline (without defaulting), or if you delete your uploaded assignment after the posting deadline.
When a writer or artist defaults, their recipient will become a pinch hit. (There may also be initial pinch hits right after assignments go out, if no suitable match is found for them.) Pinch hits will be posted on this community and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. You may not accept more than one pinch hit at a time.
The only time a pinch hitter will not be sought is if the defaulted-on recipient also defaulted. This is the only case where a participant might not receive a gift -- they may still receive treats, but this isn't guaranteed.
Gifts will be revealed when everyone has a gift, but not before June 4. Gifters will remain anonymous for one week after gift reveals.
If you have any questions or comments, leave them here and I'll get back to you ASAP!
