 Coming in at 408 signups across many, many fandoms! This is significantly more than last year so congratulations all!

What happens next:
  • I will go through signups and identify anyone who did not ensure that all requested fandoms were unique, and all offered fandoms were unique and ask them to make changes to their signups within 12 hours.
  • After that twelve hours expires or all people I contacted have responded (whichever comes first), I will do matching! 
  • Once matching is done, I will contact anyone who does not have a person they can create a gift for and ask them to amend their offers. They will have 24 hours to respond.
  • Once everyone who does not have a recipient has responded or the 24 hours has elapsed (whichever comes first), assignments will go out!
In the meantime, browse through the requests! Now that signups are locked in (mostly) maybe there's some prompts that have caught your creative eye. And have fun!

We are in the last day for sign ups! If you have still yet to sign up, the sign up form is here and the tag set is here! Signups close at 11:59pm EST today (January 7).

Some general reminders:
  • You are not obligated to create a gift that perfectly matches a prompt (or indeed does at all). You are obligated to create a gift that matches a relationship tag used by your recipient in their sign up.
  • If you choose "Any relationship" this means any relationship in the tag set. There are a number of fandoms with a lot of tags, and you cannot predict which tag your creator or recipient will match on. Please consider if you are requesting or offering any whether you truly mean "Any" or whether you mean "Any except for X" and request and offer accordingly.
  • "Character A/Character B" means you want to receive or gift shippy gifts. "Character A & Character B" means you want to receive or gift gen gifts. Please keep this in mind.
  • Your requests must all be for unique fandoms, as must your offers (that is, you can't request one fandom multiple times, or offer one fandom multiple times). If your fandoms are not unique by the time signups close, you will be contacted and required to provide further requests or offers. If you do not do this after 12 hours from that email being sent, your signup will be deleted.
We are now at 339 signups, which is higher than last year! Any takers on what number we'll break by the time sign ups close?

It's been brought to my attention that the form allows you to request multiples of a fandom. Please do not do this, as matching will be difficult in this exchange as it is given the number of variables involved and it is against the rules of the exchange.

If you have duplicated or triplicated a fandom in your signup, please ensure that all fandoms are unique for your requests, and all fandoms are unique for your offers. If you have not done this by the time signups close, you will be contacted and given 12 hours to make the necessary changes. If you fail to do so in that time, your signup will be deleted.

I apologize for the inconvenience!

Happy new year, dear chocolatiers! Welcome to signups!

You can find the signup form here. You need a minimum of 3 fandoms to request and 4 to offer, and up to ten for requests and offers. You also need to choose whether you want fanfic, fanart, or you would like either of them. Here is the tagset. If you cannot find your fandom, please look in "Unassigned Fandoms". If you are offering a fandom with only one ship nominated, you need to tick the "Any" checkbox for that fandom.

Requests are currently visible but you are free to edit your signup until 11:59pm EST on 7 January 2017. I may be a little late in closing signups, but please do not rely on this.

A reminder:
  • Character A & Character B = genfic
  • Character A/Character B = shipfic.

Please do not mix these two up!

Happy sign-ups! Requests are visible and a text file will be created with all prompts on the close of signups, but there will also be a letter post going up shortly.

EDIT: If you nominated Heathers (1988), please comment with a link to your nominations so that I can insert your nominated tags back into the tag set.

Signups are now closed, at 294 participants! So close to 300! Maybe next year we can beat 300.

Matching

Matching has already begun and hopefully assignments will go out soon. If you are contacted by me, it means that you are not able to write for anyone, and you will be asked to adjust your signup so that you can be matched to someone. The quicker you can get back to me, the quicker assignments can go out, so please ensure that the email address you have with AO3 is one that you check.

Pinch hits

Pinch hits will be posted to the community with comments screened so that only I can see them. To pick up a pinch hit you leave a comment with your AO3 name and which pinch hit you would like to pick up.

I am assuming that there will be some initial pinch hits after the matching algorithm ends, so please keep an eye out for those!

Treats

Treats go into the main collection! They will not be your recipient's ultimate gift but are instead an additional story. Please feel free to write treats!

List of all prompts


A text searchable document of all prompts will be done while matching is ongoing. I'll let you all know when it's complete!

Mod contact


Please contact me at chocolateboxmod[at]gmail if there are any problems with your assignment! I know that people are contacting me with DW messages, but it has been very difficult to reply to a number of you because your security settings mean that you can send messages but not receive them.

Signups close at 11:59pm EST tonight!

Also, if you have sent me a DW message, chances are I have not responded to you because your DW account does not allow private messages.

Please direct all enquiries to chocolateboxmod[at]gmail.com or leave a comment here. That way I can definitely answer you!

 Just a reminder to everyone that you will be matching on relationship tags, and relationship tags are what your author is required to write. Prompts are optional details which can be ignored and in the case where the optional details contradict the relationship tag, authors are encouraged to ignore the optional details and write the relationship in the tag instead.

Please keep this in mind when you write your prompts!

 Happy new year! Let's do signups!

You can find the signup form here. You need a minimum of 3 fandoms to request and 4 to offer, and up to ten for requests and offers. You also need to choose whether you want fanfic, fanart, or you would like either of them. Here is the tagset. If you cannot find your fandom, please look in "Unassigned Fandoms". 

Requests are currently visible but you are free to edit your signup until 11:59pm EST on 7 January 2016. I may be a little late in closing signups, but please do not rely on this.

A reminder:
  • Character A & Character B = genfic
  • Character A/Character B = shipfic.
Please do not mix these two up!

There are still 18 character combinations that have not been assigned because it was unclear where they went. Please look at this post for an explanation as to what is going on. If someone tells me where these ships should go between now and when signups close, I will do a post telling people where to find these new tags, so that requests and offers can be adjusted.

Now all that's out of the way, let's do signups! I look forward to seeing what you request.

Letter post will go up in a bit.

EDIT: SIgnups are temporarily closed while I try and work out what on earth my form is doing. Sorry for the inconvenience! SIGNUPS LIVE. this is clearly what happens when you have an exchange to start signups on New Year's Day.
