Just a little heads-up: This year's deadline is Sunday, November 25th, 8pm GMT. (When is that for me?)

Which means you have a little over 10 days until assignments are due. (Here is a quick guide for how to upload your work to AO3 - just substitute this year's collection, which is Public Call - Doctor Who fic exchange 2018.)

The first stories are already in, and we hope writing is going well for everybody else. Good luck, everyone! :)

Matching went well, and assignments have been sent out - check your email inboxes or your AO3 accounts, everyone!

Stories are due by November 25th, 8pm GMT. (When is that for me?)

If something went wrong and you didn't offer any of the requested relationships in your assignment, please contact the mods. You are only guaranteed to match on one relationship. You only have to write one story, but of course you're free to write more if you'd like. Please make sure not to include the dislikes your recipient specified in the details.

Good luck, everyone! Have fun!

Sign-ups for Public Call 2018 are now open!

Sign-up form on AO3

(If you need an AO3 account, you can request one here, or just ask the mods.)

Sign-ups will remain open until 8pm GMT on Wednesday, 17th October (When is that in my time zone?)

To sign up, you must specify which combinations of characters ("relationships") you are willing to receive or write fic for. "Relationship" encompasses all kinds of relationships, from familial to friendship to romance, from platonic to explicitly sexual etc., and writers are free to write any relationship as a pairing/moresome or as gen. You can give a preference in your sign-up, but any details other than dislikes are optional for writers.

Here is the list of available relationships.

(You can also see an easier-to-read full list of relationships - sorted into New Who, Torchwood, Classic Who, and Mixed/Big Finish/others - on LJ or on DW.)

For reference, here are the full Rules & FAQ for this year.

Requests:
  • Relationships:

    Minimum: 3, maximum: 15

    At least one relationship must be New Who and/or Torchwood characters only.

    The sign-up form will autocomplete when you start typing a relationship.

    (There is an AO3 bug where sometimes a relationship won't come up in autocomplete. If that happens, please copy and paste it from the tagset.)

  • Details:

    Please include some information for your assigned writer in the following format:

    <b>Likes:</b> (general preferences, prompts, suggested scenarios ...)

    <b>Dislikes:</b> (in particular, please include any squicks or triggers you may have - in other words, what is it you absolutely don't want to receive?)

    You can include any other additional details you like, but please don't imply rank for relationships or otherwise specify a favourite. You are only guaranteed to match on one relationship, so make sure everything you request is something you'd be happy to receive.

    Also remember that your writer is free to write any relationship as a pairing (or moresome) or as gen as long as all characters are included in the fic. Your writer will not be allowed to include your dislikes. Prompts and other details are optional and there to help your assigned writer come up with ideas for your gift. We urge everyone to make an effort to write a fic that will appeal to their recipient to the best of their ability.

  • URL:

    You can add a link to a "Dear Writer" letter if there's more you'd like to tell your assigned writer.

Offers:
  • Minimum: 3 relationships, maximum: 20

    At least one relationship must be New Who and/or Torchwood characters only.

    The sign-up form will autocomplete when you start typing a relationship.

    (There is an AO3 bug where sometimes a relationship won't come up in autocomplete. If that happens, please copy and paste it from the tagset.)

  • You're only guaranteed to match on one relationship, so make sure everything you offer is something you'd be happy to write.

You can edit/delete your sign-up until sign-ups close on the 17th.
 
 
 

These are all the character combinations ("relationships") that are eligible this round. You can request or offer them in your sign-up.

Remember that for matching purposes it is required that you request and offer at least one "relationship" consisting only of New Who or Torchwood characters. That means you need to pick at least one relationship from the first two sections of this list.

Six days left to nominate! If you haven't nominated yet, now's the time! In the mean time, here's a request for clarification, plus a reminder:

Request for clarifcation

Nominated relationship Eleventh Doctor/Melody Pond: Since Melody Pond is River Song's birth name, we're not quite sure what the nominator was going for. Could you explain/clarify, please?

If we don't hear back, we'll approve this as Eleventh Doctor/River Song.

Nominations reminder

Relationships should be formatted with slashes (A/B), not ampersands (A & B) - to make matching easier, we don't separate romantic/sexual and platonic relationships. We will not be approving nominations with ampersands, so if you nominated any such relationships, please change your nominations to the correct format.

In general, please make sure you've read the nominations instructions carefully before nominating!

Nominations are now open.

Nomination Form on AO3

To view the approved tags in the tag set you can go here.

You will need an AO3 account to nominate relationship tags now and to later participate in the exchange. If you don't have an account yet, you can request an invite here.

Nominations will stay open until 30th September .

You can nominate any relationship involving two or more characters from the extended Whoniverse. Crossovers with other fandoms are not allowed for this exchange. You can nominate up to 15 different relationships. The form also asks you to specify the fandom for every relationship, but as only Whoniverse characters are allowed you can leave the field blank as long as the relationship is already a known tag on the AO3.
  • Relationships must be formatted like this: Character A/Character B, Character A/Character B/Character C. etc. Normally AO3 uses relationships tags that link character names with a / to mean romantic/sexual relationships and those that link names with a & to mean familial and platonic relationships or friendships. For the nominations, sign up and matching we won't be making this distinction. (Later when you post your fic you can tag however you think is appropriate.)

  • Different incarnations of the Doctor or other Time Lords count as different characters, so, for example, Tenth Doctor/Jack Harkness and Twelfth Doctor/Jack Harkness would be two separate relationships.

  • Relationships must be unambiguous, so please use the most specific/full name of the characters (for example Fifth Doctor, Martha Jones ...). If one of the characters has only a single, non-unique name (for example, "Jenny"), use a disambiguated version ("Jenny (Doctor Who: The Doctor's Daughter)"). When you start typing into the nominations form, AO3 should bring up suggestions. Choose the most specific phrasing, or create something new if the relationship you want has not been used on AO3 before.
AO3 has a detailed guidelines on how to format canonical tags. We'll try to approve the form of a relationship tag that is closest to the "canonical" form. To make this easier please use the autofill to pull up a suitable synonym for the relationship you want to nominate wherever possible. It pulls canonical (wrangled) tags from the full AO3 tag set.

You don't have to nominate in order to participate, but only nominated relationships can be requested and offered during this round of the exchange. To make matching easier please only nominate relationships that you actually plan to request or offer!!

The mods will check all nominated relationships while nominations are in progress. All relationships that meet the criteria above will be approved, though they might be approved under different names than you gave. You can change your nominations only until they have been approved or rejected, so be sure of your nominations before you submit them! For more information on how the Ao3 nominations process works also check this detailed nominations tutorial made for the yuletide exchange. (In the case of yuletide fandoms and characters are nominated. In our case only relationship tags are nominated.)
