Hey everyone. We've had barely any sign ups, so I've extended the deadline for another ten days.

Sign ups are here and will now close on July 25.

You can sign up over here.

If you don't have an AO3 account, leave me a note with your email address here and I will send you an invite. Thanks to everyone who has helped out and already signed up.

ALSO, if you are interesting in offering services as a beta reader, please do so OVER HERE.

I will post a list of beta readers a bit later on.

Leave questions/comments/concerns here if you have any!

TREK EXCHANGE 2011

ALL RIGHT EVERYONE.

Trek Exchange, Summer 2011, is now open for business!

i'm running this through AO3 this time, since that will be much easier for me, as far as organization goes!

If you do not have an AO3 account, PLEASE comment here with your email address and I will send you an invite. Right now I only have a few, but I will try to get more if/when the need for them arises.

The rules are the same as before, and are as follows:

ONE.

ALL requesters must be prepared to write fic in return! (The only exception to that is in number three, below.)

TWO.

ALL fics submitted have a minimum word requirement of 1000 words. More is welcomed and encouraged, but 1000 is required.

This round, I am going to do fic only. Sorry to artists! If there is enough interest, I may run an art-only challenge/mini-challenge at some point? But this was - organizationally - the best thing I could do right now. I do apologize.

Some q/a:

When are sign ups?

Sign ups for the round are from JUNE 15 until JULY 15. They close at 9pm Pacific Standard Time.

When is the fic deadline?

All fics must be posted by AUGUST 15 at 9pm PST. Pinch hits will be sent out as people default (a list will be set up for this purpose; please stay tuned for details).

What if I can't finish on time?

The default deadline with NO PENALTY is July 20. If you drop by that point, you will be allowed to participate in the next round.

The default deadline with ONE PENALTY is August 5. If you drop by that point, you will not be allowed to participate in the next round (although you will be allowed to pinch hit).

If you default after August 5, or if you don't notify the mods and tell them you are defaulting and just fail to post, you will NOT be allowed to participate in ANY future rounds.

You can find the sign up form RIGHT HERE. There are instructions on there, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me!

ALSO I have two moderators on board. Please welcome jadecorpsebride and trekkingalong to your mod team! They're helping me with organization and groundwork, which I desperately need.

QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS, throw 'em at me.

ALSO please do pimp this far and wide! The more people, the more variety, the more fics. Everyone wins!

TREK EXCHANGE: THE REBOOT



All right. I've asked a couple people, thought about it a lot, and decided. If there is still interest in this exchange, then I'd like to run it again.

HOWEVER, a couple things would be different. I was thinking of using AO3 to host it, instead of posting all fics here (although we could do both, idk, it's up to what everyone wants).

I will also need AT LEAST one person to help me out with the organizing and assigning and such. If you are interested, please comment here, or email 03robin at gmail.

I hope we can make this thing go again, guys. :D

IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN WRITING FOR THE EXCHANGE, PLEASE COMMENT SO I KNOW THAT THERE IS INTEREST OUT THERE, OKAY? OKAY.

Author's Note: This is written for stripedpetunia on trek_exchange.

The feedback from 4.7 was just amazing you guys. Thanks so much for your positivity and enthusiasm. Seriously, you're all wonderful. In this chapter, Kirk and Spock tease out the edges of what has changed between them whilst kind of, sort of taking a vacation. Oh, and there's a barbecue.

Ch 5.1: In the meadow where the black breeze blows ... you were most alone ... I'm looking on the brighter side ...

Betas: the epic enabler the_arc5, without whom, this story would have been another fade-to-black experience.

Author's Note: This is written for stripedpetunia on trek_exchange.

I'm feeling very grateful at the moment. Grateful for stripedpetunia for creating a prompt that led me to this universe and made me see the potential of writing mostly from Jim's perspective. I'm grateful to everyone who's read and taken the time to comment - I hope you can see where your suggestions and feedback have been worked into this story, because I can assure you, they have. I'm also especially grateful to my friend the_arc5, particularly for her work on this chapter and the unwavering support and encouragement she's given me as I prepared to write well outside my personal comfort zone.

You guys have been waiting over 100,000 words for some blatant K/S ... clicking fingers ready?


Ch 4.7: Years of lying and self destructing, manipulation and excavation of my soul today; I've walked alone most all my life ...

Betas: the_arc5, who is cheering for the oncoming porn (excuse the cross-fandom reference, yeah?)

Author's Note: This is written for stripedpetunia on trek_exchange. In this chapter, Jim comes up with one of his patented suicidally brilliant plans, Spock value-adds to the situation, Uhura has a talented tongue and the Starfleet command team leave a lot to be desired. At the end, we find Spock taking a long hard look in the mirror ...



Ch 4.6: Got no-one to run to ... I know things that might not hurt you, things that will for sure ...

Author's Note: This is written for stripedpetunia on trek_exchange. That storm I was mentioning? Yeah, well it ended up being two chapters long because there's no way in hell LJ would let me post 14,000 as one chapter.

Murphey's Law is not something EPAS personnel probably cherish, as much as they can't help believing in it, just a little. Or so I imagine.
