From the FAQ:

Q: How do sign-ups work? A: Anyone with an AO3 account will be able to access the sign-up form once it exists. Here is a step-by-step guide to requesting and offering through the AO3 form (though please note that cis-female centric language is not a reflection of the current exchange). If you don't already have an account, again, please ask for one. In sign-ups, you will include both a request and an offer.
  • Choose three to six fandoms and "Any" or one to ten characters per fandom from the nomination set
  • Include details you would like to see and/or a link to an author's letter
  • Choose three to ten fandoms and "Any" or one to twenty characters per fandom from the nomination set
  • Please err on the side of requesting and offering as MANY characters as you feel comfortable with, as options make matching easier. Matching is also done via OR match rather than AND, and therefore listing many characters opens you up to more potential matches.
Q: What happens after that? A: You receive your assignment, which will match you with someone based on at LEAST one character.
You write a story of at least 1,000 words focused on at least one of the characters they requested. You are only obligated to fill one of your recipient's requests. It does not have to be the one you matched on, if you like and can write something else they've requested that you didn't offer. Optional details are optional, but you are obligated to try and avoid any triggers they note.

Q: What kind of stories can I request? A: While remembering that aside from at least one match on one character, optional details are optional (but encouraged), you may request gen, femslash, het, poly, incest, RPF… you name it. You can note that you'd like to see your rarely written character paired with a non-rare character, as long as the requested character is the center and focus of the request and resulting fic. While background cis-men, male narratives, and slash are not forbidden by any means, we encourage requests and fic to focus as much as possible on the requested rarely written character. The character's marginalized gender or sex does not need to be the focus of your story.

On that note, SIGN-UPS ARE OPEN and will be open for the rest of the month. If you need to reference the tag set, that's finalized and here.

The sign-up summary is here.

Once you have a Dear Author letter, link to it here.

If you haven't yet and would like to, please sign up for the pinch hit list!

If you still need an AO3 account, leave your email here and we'll do what we can. If you have questions or comments, please use the comment post.
