overview

How it works
Fill out this request form with what you would like to gift and receive and submit it to itravelbyansibles. You have until 12am EST on Nov 10 to submit your request. On Nov 15, the mods will message participants via ask with their gift recipient. Please keep your recipient a secret!

Everyone has until midnight Dec 1 to finish their gift. Please post your gifts in /tagged/enderxchange on or after Dec 1, and include the name of your recipient and the prompt. (It’s also courteous to tag your recipient’s url.) Don’t worry about not seeing your gift - mods will track the tag and reblog to itravelbyansibles.

rules

Rules
01. Please follow itravelbyansibles if you wish to participate, as the exchange is being hosted on this blog and therefore will be where all announcements and deadlines will be posted.

02. This event is for sharing fan works with your fellow fans! By submitting a request, you are agreeing to gift artwork, fic, graphics/photomanips/icons, fanmixes, videos, etc in exchange for work gifted to you by another participant. That said, we understand that life happens and people cannot finish complete their half of the exchange on time or at all - if you need an extended deadline or to drop out of the event, please let a mod know ASAP.

03. Please don’t steal or plagiarize. If mods receive complaints that a participant has stolen art or graphics/plagarized fic/etc, we will revoke your request and submission and permanently terminate your involvement in this event.

04. Please be conscientious of your partner’s requests. Do not submit gift work that is more explicit than they requested or material starring characters they did not want, etc. That said:
    i. Please either include in your request or inform the mods privately via ask message if you are under the age of 18.
    ii. Sexually explicit, overtly gory or violent visual work is prohibited, but written work is acceptable.
    iii. Sexually explicit content of any medium featuring characters under the age of 16 is not acceptable and will be deleted by the mods.
    iv. You cannot request or volunteer to gift sexually explicit material if you are under the age of 18.

04. Fic must have a minimum word count of 500 words and be spellchecked; art and graphics must be finished (not sketches) and in .jpg, .gif or .png format.
