Welcome to Space Swap!

space_swap is a multimedia exchange for space fandoms of all sorts, including television series, movies, and books. The only criterion for a fandom to be eligible is that it somehow be related to SPACE.

We'll be running this along typical exchange lines: participants will sign up with requests and offers, will be matched via AO3, and will receive an assignment. By signing up, participants agree to make a fannish creation for their assigned participant. In turn, someone will make a fannish creation for them.

We'll kick off the swap with a fandom recruitment phase in which everyone can wax poetic about their favourite space fandoms in the hopes of recruiting new fans. Following that we’ll hold nominations to get a set of fandoms and characters for our swap, and then we’ll have sign-ups and be off and running!

Requests, Offers, and Matching

When signing up, you will need to request at least 3 fandoms, and can request up to 6. You'll also need to offer at least 3 fandoms, and can offer up to 10.

For each fandom, you can request up to 4 nominated characters. If you select 0, the person assigned to you may make something with any nominated character or the fandom in general.

For each fandom, you must offer to write 2 to 8 of the nominated characters. You can also offer 'any.'

Your requests and offers will also contain media type(s), which will be used in matching people.

There will be more information about prompts and matches when we open sign-ups.

Fannish Creation Requirements

The minimum creation requirements are:

Fic, podfic, or meta - 1,000 words
Vid - 2 minutes
Art - 1 original illustration or 2 graphic pieces
Other - Something of equivalent effort to the above

You are, of course, welcome to do more and longer.

Interested in making something else? Leave us a comment about it. We'll poll the community and if there's enough interest, we'll add it in.
