Sign ups are now open from now until August 26 10PM EDT! (Check for your time zone!)

Requests: You can make 1-10 requests with 1-20 items (be it character, relationship, or worldbuilding) each. You may request the same fandom multiple times with a different set of request items.

If you cannot find your request item in the drop down menu, do this: find your tag in the list of approved tags, copy the tag in its entirety — such as "Relationship: Matt Holt & Pidge (VLD)" — paste it in the bar, and hit enter. This is a known AO3 bug but this is the way to work around it.

Offers: You can make 1-10 offers/fandoms with 1-20 items (be it character, relationship, or worldbuilding) each. Fandoms can be offered multiple times if you are offering different sets (for example: fic for one set, art for another.) You can also offer Any for a fandom.

Letters: Letters are not mandatory but they are nice for offering details and prompts for your writer/artist and potential treaters. Letters can also be posted in the Letters post.

Optional details: This is a good place to add in any Do Not Wants that you wish for your creator to avoid in their gift as well as general likes.

Once you are ready, then head over and sign up!

Basic Rules
• Be courteous to everyone in the exchange! There are many different takes, interests, shipping preferences, and so forth. All are valid and respected here!

• Please respect the DNW (Do Not Wants) provided by the person you are making a gift for, be they your assignment or someone you are creating a treat for.

• Please do not discuss your assignment publicly on your blog, forums, Discord, or anywhere where you recipient may see your comments. Your assignment is a secret! If you wish to ask your recipient a question, please send an email to themodpaladin@gmail.com with your AO3 name, their AO3, and your question, and I will forward the question for you.

• You may not crosspost your work until after Creator Reveals date (October 15.)

• Gifts cannot be part of a previously-posted work unless if your recipient has explicitly stated interest in receiving a gift from your series.

• Please comment and thank your gift maker. They put love and effort into making their gift just for you! :)


And that's about it in terms of basic rules! Crack a squizzle on the Balmera, everyone! <3




What is LionSwap?

LionSwap is a Gift Exchange celebrating all Voltron series. You are not required to be familiar with all Voltron incarnations to participate. This works as a basic gift exchange: by signing up, you agree to create one fanwork that is of a quality you would like to receive, and you will get a fanwork in return. This event will accept characters individually, relationships (romantic and platonic), and worldbuilding. More detailed information is given below.

Minimums
• Fanfic submissions must be at minimum 500 words, completed, and of a quality you would be happy to receive as a gift. While your fic will not be rejected if it is not beta-read, we do encourage that your story is at least proof-read. There is no maximum word limit.

• Fanart submissions must be at minimum a finished sketch on unlined paper, and it can be hand drawn or digital. We will not be accepting graphics, edits, or manips at this time. There is no maximum in terms of size or page limit on comics.

All other mediums are currently not accepted as a main gift for this round, but you may request or create them as treats.


Nominations
There are 8 fandom slots and 20 character fields each. That's enough fandoms slots open for each Voltron series, although, again, you are not required to know every series to participate.

To nominate, we will be using the Character field to nominate characters, relationships (/ and &) and worldbuilding. Please use the following formats and use qualifiers to prevent migrating tags. I will be using Allura in my examples.

    For Characters:
  • Character: Allura (DotU)


    For romantic Relationships:
  • Relationship: Allura/Shiro (VLD)

    Note: you may nominate polyships.


    For platonic Relationships:
  • Relationship: Allura & Alfor & Coran (VLD)


    Note: you can also mix relationships, such as:
  • Relationship: Alfor/Allura's Mother & Allura (VLD)


    For Worldbuilding:
  • Worldbuilding: Building of the Castle of Lions (VLD)


    For qualifiers, please use the following:
  • for Beast King GoLion - Fala (GoLion)
  • for Voltron: Defenders of the Universe - Allura (DotU)
  • for Voltron Defender of the Universe (Devil's Due) - Allura (Devil's Due)
  • for Voltron (Dynamite Entertainment) - Allura (Dynamite)
  • for Robotech/Voltron (Crossover Comic) - Allura (R/V)
  • for Voltron: The Third Dimension - Allura (3D)
  • for Voltron Force - Allura (VF)
  • for Voltron: Legendary Defender - Allura (VLD)

    Note: Lion Voltron and Vehicle Voltron nominations will all go under Defenders of the Universe

    Mod note: if there's any other incarnation I'm missing, let me know!


I will keep a list of approved tags right over here for easier viewing.

Requests

You can make a minimum of 1 request/fandom with 1-20 items (be it character, relationship, or worldbuilding.) Maximum amount of requests is ten. Do keep in mind matchability!

You may request the same fandom multiple times with a different set of request items.


Offers

You can make a minimum of 1 offer/fandom with 1-20 items (be it character, relationship, or worldbuilding.) Maximum amount of offers is ten. Fandoms can be offered multiple times if you are offering different sets (for example: fic for one set, art for another.)


Matching

This will be OR matching. You will be matched on at least 1 fandom + 1 request item + 1 medium. You are expected to create one fanwork, and it does not have to be what you matched on it something else in your assignment interests you. You may create more than one fanwork for your recipient, but you are expected to produce at least one work.

If you find there's a problem with your assignment or that you believe you were mismatched, contact the mod immediately.


Defaulting

There is no penalty for defaulting although if this becomes a pattern in future rounds a rule may be put in place. Just hit the "default" button in your Assignments page and a pinch hitter will be assigned for your assignment. Keep in mind that if you default and your writer/artist also defaults, then you may end up without a gift.


Pinch Hits

Keep an Eye on the Dreamwidth and Tumblr communities for announcements for pinch hits.


Treating

Treats are extra fics and art that are made outside of your assignment. Treats are wonderful and encouraged! The more the merrier! You do not need to be signed up to create a treat for someone, and you may make a treat for your recipient or branch out to treat other participants. Treats have no minimums.


Question?

If you have a question that isn't covered here, you may contact the mod at any time at themodpaladin@gmail.com.
