Reveals for this years' fest are going up tomorrow! I hope you all have had time to read and review all the lovely fics out there -- if not, scurry to do so before reveals.

Before the reveals go out, I'd like to thank a couple of people for helping the process -- [info]kethelenda and [info]acidpop25 for amazing pinch-hits, [info]sappholococcus and [info]acidpop25 for helping with posting when technology and RL got in the way (and [info]sappholococcus for aiding with getting assignments sorted and sent out), and all of you lovely participants for making this an amazing fest.

That said -- there are a lot of amazing fics that haven't gotten much attention recently. I suggest that, if you have some spare time tonight, you look at a few. They're all brilliant, and they all could use a little more love.

I'd like to apologise for the sporadicness in posting -- there were technological difficulties (like gmail not working at all for a little too long, or greatestjournal going basically kaput) -- but next year, promise, the system will be improved upon and posting will occur every day, as promised. And there will be a fest next year! I hope to see all of you signing up in August, when the post goes up.

Happy January, everyone, and happy reading.

More detailed information and rules on this fest will be going up on the 22nd of August, and the sign-up post will go up on LiveJournal on the 24th. Until then, I would suggest everyone read [info]r_becca's post at Smutty_Claus and consider everything she's said, in relation to a all-ratings femslash exchange. Also, see her guide to participating in fic exchanges.

Also, keep in mind:
+Those who dropped out without prior notice during the last run of [info]fem_exchange will not be permitted to participate this year. I have the list, and I will screen your comment if you try and sign up. Sorry! That's just the way things have to go.
+If you dropped out with prior notice and you want to participate this round, you will have an earlier deadline.
+I will be locking all fic with cross-gen and incestuous pairings, and anything rated above an R from the last round. Just to be on the safe side! I don't want any of the lovely participants from last year, [info]confiteor_3, or myself to be banned for anything related to this fest.

I will make posts for potential betas and pinch-hitters to sign up after assignments go out.

Hello, femmeslashers of the world! I'm [info]el_em_en_oh_pee, and I'm going to be your new [info]fem_exchange mod.

Here's a heads-up: the fest will be running again this year, though, due to recent LJ drama, the actual fic and art will probably be posted to InsaneJournal and GreatestJournal. If the decision is made to use these alternate sites, all admin posts will be posted here, including sign-ups, and the headers to the fics will be posted here, with links to the fics on the other site(s). (This is so that participants and watchers need not create journals on these other sites if they want to -- they can comment to the header post with their impressions! I do ask, though, that the content of these comments is kept within the new LJ standards. Know that I will screen any comments that might result in TOSing as soon as they come to my attention, at least temporarily.) Alternately, I might just post R and NC-17-rated stories elsewhere. I would love to hear feedback on this before I make any permanent decisions.

If you have any concerns at all, please feel free to email me (fem.exchange @ gmail.com) or comment on this entry. I will address any issues you might have, and try to work something out that is satisfactory for everyone. ♥

All participants are required to be of legal age in their country/state of residence.

Oh, right, and I'll host all artwork somehow or another ♥.
