(It's January 28th where I live!)

This is the sign-up post for the 3rd round of [info]hp_beholder, the Fic/Art exchange featuring those characters who are generally overlooked when it comes to romantic/erotic relationships.

Sign-ups will remain open until noon (Eastern time) on Friday, February 5 (as you can see on this schedule, and assignments will go out soon after.

Please read the updated community information (here), which includes General Information, Deadlines, the List of Eligible Characters, the Sign-up Template, and a list of Frequently Asked Questions.

[info]beholder_mod: HP Beholder 2010 Heads Up

Hi all...

Just a quick heads up that the third round of [info]hp_beholder is on the way. Sign-ups start Thursday, January 28, and I'd love to have as many of you participate as possible (including anybody who wasn't able to sign-up last year because they defaulted in 2008).

You're welcome to share this information with your own f'lists. In fact, please do...the more, the merrier!

Note: For background information relating to the creation of this Fic/Art Exchange, please see the original general information post, but don't trust that post for dates and updated rules

This is NOT the sign-up post: Again...sign-ups begin Thursday, January 28, so you have plenty of time to read the instructions and decide what you're going to request.

Note for 2010: Because of the too-common downtime on IJ - like right this minute, which is why I'm cross-posting to my own journals from Dreamwidth instead of to the Beholder community - I've been considering moving the main posting venue for [info]hp_beholder away from its original home base. Due to the nature of some of the art in this exchange, LiveJournal is not the best place for this Fest to take place, and while I'd like to use Dreamwidth, I'm concerned that there wouldn't be enough reader/viewer 'traffic.' If you have any thoughts, feel free to comment below (p.s., For anybody who's considering suggesting an Archive of Our Own, remember that they're not ready to host art yet) (thanks for your input!)
