Description:
A summer exchange for Supernatural fanworks

Welcome to the Supernatural Summer Gen Exchange!



spn_summergen is an anonymous, prompt-based, gen fanworks gift exchange designed to help Supernatural fans while away the desert months of summer hiatus.

Please read this before signing up. It is important that if you decide to participate in this challenge, you take the commitment seriously. If you anticipate being so pressed for time that you cannot complete your gift in a month, don’t participate. Consider instead not signing up, but pinch-hitting for participants who have to drop out! Not only can you then choose to participate when you’re sure you’ll have time, but you will also get to preview prompts you might be interested in. Sign up at spn_genpinchhit. Pinch-hitters are our superheroes!


Want to play? Here’s what you do:

1. Read the rules and agree to abide by them
2. Submit a set of story or visual prompts (ideas for the person who will create your gift) using this form
3. You will be assigned a recipient and set of prompts, but you stay anonymous!
4. Write a gen fic of at least 1,000 words or create a visual gift (drawing, painting, graphic, photomanip or video) for your recipient, utilizing their prompts
5. Submit your gift to the mods by the deadline date
6. The mods will post your gift anonymously for you
7. Watch the comm, enjoy the submissions, and have fun trying to guess who did what (but don’t give it away)!

All gifts and requests must be gen; this challenge does not allow Wincest or slash of any kind. (Despite all posted warnings, someone always requests Wincest. Please don’t.) Many other challenges are available for your slash enjoyment, but Summergen is, by definition, gen. By "gen" we simply mean fanworks that do not focus on romantic or sexual relationships, although those relationships may be a small component of the story if they're a part of canon (John/Mary or Sam/Jess, for example).

This is a Supernatural challenge, which means (at least some of) your characters must be part of Supernatural canon. Original characters are welcome, but RPF (real person fiction) is generally not allowed. The exception to this is the French Mistake timeline, but we ask that you use this scenario prudently. Please keep within the spirit of the event. All other types of sub-genres are welcome: angst, crack, past-fic and future-fic, case files, brotherly bonding, AUs, fluff, curtain fic, character studies, monster studies, monster-of-the-week comedies and tragedies and everything in between. Gifts can be of any rating.


The rules and FAQ for the 2016 challenge are HERE.


--------------------


HERE ARE THE DATES FOR SUMMERGEN 2016:

-Sign-ups: May 10-May 26
-Assignments sent out: May 30 or earlier
-Fanworks due: July 7. You will be granted an automatic, one-week grace period, but all submissions must be received by July 14, unless you have requested an extension.
-Deadline for withdrawal and requests for extensions: July 7

--------------------


We will begin posting gifts on July 8. If you get done early, awesome! Send it on in, and chances are you’ll get an early post date.

No changes can be made to your gift after final submission, so make sure it is edited/betaed/polished and ready to post when you submit it.

You will have at least three prompts to choose from.

Please be sure to read this part! Matching assignments to everyone is a tough job. Some participants will be lucky enough to get a prompt set that is perfect for them. Hopefully most of you will have at least one prompt that tickles your muse. But on rare occasion you may get a set that doesn't quite work for you, and even more rarely we might screw up and send you something that doesn't suit you at all.

Please be as flexible as possible, look for a looser interpretation of the prompt, and try to work with what you receive. If you're positive you can't do the assignment, tell us as soon as possible. You might not be the only one in that position. There are options such as trades, etc., and we will do our level best to make sure everyone has a prompt they can work with.

BUT you must tell us quickly. If you wait more than a week after assignments are sent, we'll have to treat it as a default instead.

Extensions on the deadline: If you desperately need an extension, you must request it before July 8. There's a simple reason for this: during deadline week, the mods are too derned busy to do anything but check the submissions as they come in.

Before you ask for an extension, please make sure you understand:

• The earlier you ask, the easier it is for all of us.
• There are no extensions on extensions, so be realistic about the amount of time you need.
If you ask for an extension past the submission deadline, you're too late - you are already in default.
• If you only need a few days, that won't be a problem. Longer extensions come with conditions. For example, we might ask you to submit a finished rough draft quickly, then allow you more time to get the story polished up.

You can ask for an extension by emailing the mod team at supernaturalsummergen @ gmail. com (remove the spaces).
