The Severus/Hermione Gift Exchange
|Name:||The SSHG Exchange|
|Theme:||Snape/Granger gift exchange|
|About:||This is the Insanejournal home of the SS/HG Gift Exchange!|
The absolutely stunning drawing that serves as the background pic for this community's layout was drawn by the amazing usagistu, otherwise known as Melanie. :) Mel also did the art work featured in the community icon and pearle9240 made it into an icon. Thank you, Melanie, for letting me use your gorgeous art work.

Have a question? Please read through the FAQ and the profile below before e-mailing the mods. Your question may be ignored if it is answered in the profile or FAQ!
*Some of the material in this community is unsuitable for minors. If you are under 18, please read no further.
You didn't really think there wouldn't be any rules, did you? ;-)
1. Membership to the community is open to anyone with a Insanejournal account, but only the moderators have posting access.
-You must be 18 to participate or join the community.
2. Format for making requests will be outlined in the sign up post. Please follow it.
3. Requests may be made for art (which can be for a particular scene from a fic you wrote), essays, or fanfiction. It's possible there may be a "multi-media" exchange some day (mood themes, layouts, icons, ect.), but not this round.
4. All requests must focus on the relationship between Severus and Hermione. Genfic that explores their teacher/student relationship or their friendship/hatred is perfectly fine. A romantic relationship is not a requirement.
5. All ratings and genres are allowed. However, the moderators ask that requests not be too "pornographic." PWP is allowed, but please, nothing too heavy. This isn't a kinkfest. ;-)
6. Please communicate with the moderators ahead of time if you are having trouble getting your gift completed for any reason. We won't guarantee your request for an extension will be granted (they are generally only granted in dire circumstances), but the more advance notice we have the better your chances.
7. Please respect your recipient's wishes. If they want a happy ending, give them a happy ending. If they want genfic, give them genfic. If they want angst... well, you get the idea. :) If, for whatever reason, you are not happy with your assignment, please do not hesitate to say so right away. It is much easier to simply give you a new assignment and give yours to someone else than it is to scramble to find someone to replace you at the last minute.
8. Each fic must be at least 1,500 words. There is no maximum. No WIPs. All works must be complete.
9. Everyone is
a. Perfect Imagination is a very helpful resource when searching for a qualified beta reader. All beta readers listed in the database are required to pass a canon and grammar exam to become a part of the database.
b. The Sycophant Hex Forums is another excellent resource. Scroll down to the "Beta and Brit-Picker Business" section. Joining the forum is required to post, but it is free and fast.
c. The Tauri Forums is another great resource. Go to "The Matrix" for a list of qualified beta readers who are Tauri members. Joining the forum is required to post, but it is free and fast.
d. The Petulant Poetess also has a beta directory with lots of information about the people offering their services. Try checking it out here or scroll to the bottom of the main page and click on "Beta Directory."
e. Lastly, there will be a beta readers resource post made every round, where people can volunteer to beta read specifically for the exchange.
Participants are encouraged to exhaust the above resources BEFORE contacting the Mods to complain that they can't find a beta reader. There are plenty of resources listed here, so I think everyone will be able to find someone if they look hard enough. :)
10. Erm... HAVE FUN! :D
