This has been an interesting exchange season, in part because of Real Life drama that has been going on a lot longer than it should, and because, for some reason, my requests keep going to pinch hit at the last minute. My [community profile] crossovering request went to ph three days after assignments were due and my [livejournal.com profile] yuletide_admin request went to ph the day before assignments were due. (I feel I must have gotten a reputation somewhere as a difficult assignee. How do I fix this?) I also did [livejournal.com profile] hlh_shortcuts and didn't go to ph, which is good because I wasn't available this year to pick up any pinch hits. ;)

The consequence, oddly enough, has been some really enjoyable gifts.

Crossovering

I Left My Heart in 1990 by [tumblr.com profile] flukeoftheuniverse - Highlander/DC's Legends of Tomorrow - 3390 words - The Waverider crew picks up a guest after an unsuccessful trip to the 90s to find Vandal Savage. Vandal Savage does not appear in this story.

Yuletide

Beyond Metropolis by [archiveofourown.org profile] setcheti - Beyond Metropolis (Song) - Shriekback - 2223 words - The world outside the walls of Metropolis had blue skies, just like in my mother's stories.

In This Darkest Closet, Tryin' to Figure It Out by [tumblr.com profile] htbthomas - My Secret Identity - 1544 words - Andrew, Kirk and Cassie are trapped in a closet, and Kirk only has one question: why won't Andrew use his powers?

and I got an NYR

Pack is Home, Home is Pack by [archiveofourown.org profile] mercybuckets - Wolfblood - 2771 words - Maddy juggles exams, applications, diplomacy and plans for the future. On top of everything, Rhydian is acting weird and her powers are acting up. One thing’s for sure, life in Canada for a teenaged wolfblood is no picnic.

Dear Crossovering Writer:

Thank you so much for signing up for this exchange and for agreeing to write me a story. Crossovers are one of my favorite types of stories, so I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] LadySilver, [tumblr.com profile] argentum-ls, and [personal profile] argentum_ls. Feel free to browse my feeds. If you have any questions, htbthomas can help you with answers.

Below I've listed some general likes and dislikes, a brief breakdown of what I like in each fandom I've requested (along with favorite characters and pairings), and sentence prompts. I know there's a lot of information here. Everything is optional, though I really hope you'll avoid my DNWs. Use what you want to, and please don't feel like you have to tick off every box. This info is meant to make things easier for you, not harder.

Fandoms included:

Arrow
Being Human (US)
Forever
Highlander: the Series
Houdini & Doyle
Legends of Tomorrow
Leverage
The Listener
Now You See Me
Psych

The Crossovering tag set is up, with 205 fandoms that made the cut, including 7 of the 8 that I nominated.

A glance through shows 18 fandoms that I'd be interested in playing with this time, either as a writer or a reader, though a few are at the bottom of the list because I'm not fresh on the canon.

The request pools so far:

1. Forever, Highlander: the Series, Houdini & Doyle, DC's Legends of Tomorrow
2. Arrow, Highlander: the Series, Leverage, Psych, The Listener, Now You See Me
3. TBD

Other ones on my list are:

Young Wizards
The Kingsman: Secret Service
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The Flash
The Middleman
Quantum Leap
Supergirl
Teen Wolf

Suggestions on grouping and/or for prompts are always welcome.

[community profile] crossovering is running again this year! This is one of my favorite exchanges because I do so love crossovers. Nominations opened at the dot of midnight (central time) this morning, and I had mine in about five minutes later.

People are allowed to nominate up to 8 fandoms. The top ~100 nominations with the most votes will get in, so if there's something you particularly want to see made available, go add your vote. In the past two years, I've had 6 of my 8 noms make the cut. This year I'm hoping for all 8, obviously, but I expect to see 5, unless there are silent fans out there.

For the record, my nominations this year are:

The Tomorrow People (2013)
The Listener (TV)
Forever (TV)
Highlander: the Series
Arrow
DC's Legends of Tomorrow
Houdini & Doyle
Now You See Me

I've already started thinking about prompts, and I have a couple I'm eagerly waiting to share.

Dear Crossovering writer:

Thank you so much for signing up for this exchange and for agreeing to write me a story. Crossovers are one of my favorite types of fanfic, so I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I have some information below on what I like and don't like in stories. Use what you want, but know that I know that optional details are optional. I've also thrown together some prompts. Again, if they inspire you, they're yours; if not, then I'd love to see what you come up with. With a few exceptions, I've given no or little thought to how these crossovers might work, so your interpretation is my new headcanon. In those cases where I have given the crossover some thought, I'm always eager to see something else's interpretation of how the crossover will work. Alternatively, if you like what I've done in an existing crossover and want to build on it, I'm cool with that, too.

I've tried to keep things open-ended with my extra info. If you have any questions, my tumblr has a really lonely ask box with anon turned on. You can also check in with htbthomas, who knows my tastes and knows how to keep a secret.

Thank you again!

The second batch of exchanges this year got off to a really rough start. Unlike normal, I got started right away, and was making great progress. Then my computer went up in a puff of smoke and all the data went, irrecoverably, with it. Not only did I lose everything for the three extant fests/exchanges I was signed up for, I also lost everything I'd been working on for the previous eight months, including several fandom_stocking fills and partial chapters for each of my two WIPs. What really irks me is that the day before the crash, I'd commented on the need to back everything up--and I thought I had done so. Only afterward did I realize that the backup hadn't worked. I still haven't figured out what went wrong. In the end, I was left scrambling to recreate my work while also finishing a household move that started two years ago, unpacking on the other end, interviewing for and starting a new job, and trying to break in a new computer. Fortunately, deadlines in the two exchanges both got pushed back.

Though summer may be taking its sweet time getting to my part of the world, the new round of fests and exchanges is well on its way to being a full season.

Upcoming events include:

  • [livejournal.com profile] ttpsummer - The Tomorrow People may have been unceremoniously canceled (as per usual), but we can at least send it off with some style. This is an open fest. No deadlines, no commitment, and no restrictions. All fanworks welcomed and invited. Sign up to contribute something in the month August.

  • [community profile] fkficfest/[livejournal.com profile] fkficfest - Forever Knight's annual exchange. Sign-ups should be starting today. Fic and art welcome. Crossovers welcome for the first time.

  • [livejournal.com profile] rarepairfest - A multi-fandom rarepair exchange for any pairing with fewer than 250 completed works of 1000 words or more. Fic and art welcome. Nominations open June 1st.

  • [tumblr.com profile] crossovering / [community profile] crossovering - A new crossover exchange! Fic only. Nominations begin May 24th.

  • Obscure and British is a running comment-fest for media that is obscure and British. Leave a prompt. Fill a prompt. All fanworks welcome.

  • [community profile] femmeremix / [tumblr.com profile] femmeremix - A remix exchange for works focused on the female characters in a fandom. The schedule looks like it's up-in-the-air while the mod finishes her spring semester, so hopefully the fest gets off the ground.
