We understand that sign-ups are complex (particularly in this exchange) and many participants have more time to complete a sign-up on the weekend. Because of that, we have decided to extend sign-ups through the weekend. 

So with that in mind, your new sign-up deadline is: Sunday, July 30 at 12 (noon) p.m. PDT. (
Countdown here!)

We still plan on sending out assignments on the 30th, as planned. However, if matching proves difficult, we will adjust the schedule accordingly. Everyone will still get the 2 month window to create their assignments, even if we have to shift dates a little.

4 days left!

Hey, guys! Signups close in a little under 4 days @ 11:55 PM PDT on Thursday, July 27. Here's a countdown.

As a reminder, if you choose more than 2 fandoms for a single request/offer, you can match on any combination of those fandoms. We strongly encourage you to spread out your prompts and other optional details across all those possible combinations. We've seen a few signups with holes in those areas.

We also wanted to remind everyone that you can choose only 2 fandoms per request/offer. So if you'd like to see Pacific Rim crossed with Alias OR Stranger Things, but you aren't interested in a crossover between Alias and Stranger Things, you should put Pacific Rim/Alias in one request and Pacific Rim/Stranger Things in another request.

All of that said, optional details are ultimately a courtesy to your artist or author. We strongly encourage the use of optional details/prompts, particularly in an exchange like this one, but we can't force you to use them. If you choose not to leave optional details for a particular crossover match, your artist or author will be free to create whatever they want, so long as they mind your DNWs.

    Story Title:Look with a Blind Heart
    Fandom: Star : Star Trek: Original Series (Mirror Universe)
    Link(s): http://archiveofourown.org/works/11436150
    Summary: As Jim's underboss, Spock follows his every order, including those in the bedroom. He is resigned that Jim only treats him as a friend with benefit, because it is the closest to what he wants from Jim. However, as they shared days and nights of passion, Spock begins to wonder if he has more than he realizes. (Fantasy mob AU)
    Warnings some violence, kinky sex
    Characters: Mirror!Kirk, Mirror!Spock
    Pairings: Mirror!Kirk/Miror!Spock
    When I Started: This fic has begun as I wrote a ~1k PWP one-shot with magical sex toys and started wanting to know how they got together in this fantasy universe. I've finished another prequel about the first time they acknowlege the sexual attraction and had sex, but I'm not satisfied with where I left them, and I love friends with benefit turned lover trope.
    How I Lost My Shit: I generally have trouble with getting my characters to fuck like bunnies, and I'm not good at consistent world building, so I torture myself second guessing every details
    How I Finished My Shit I'm glad that I've discovered wipbigbang, which gave me a deadline as motivation. My beta Liviania is excellent as she patiently worked with me on my fic.

    And that's a wrap!

    Story Title: Emergency Contact
    Fandom: MCU
    Link(s): On AO3
    Summary: Natasha, Nick and Tony go on a mission to rescue Bruce after AoU, and are de-aged to adolescence. A story of four genius misfit loners sticking it to The Man and occasionally to each other, settling scores, and finding themselves. The real adventure is the friends they make along the way. And the evil scientists. And the thugs with tasers. And also that shark.

    Warnings: teenage sexuality (kinda)
    Characters: Natasha Romanoff, Nick Fury, Bruce Banner, Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, James 'Rhodey' Rhodes, Maria Hill, Laura Barton, Steve Rogers, Helen Cho, Sam Wilson, Thor Odinson, Clint Barton
    Pairings: Natasha/Bruce, Natasha/Nick, Tony/Bruce, Tony/Nick/Natasha/Bruce

    When I Started: My writing partner Thassalia gave me the teenager prompt in Sept 2015, but I couldn't get a handle on it. Then in Aug 2016 she shared the handful of pages she'd started, the scene with Pepper and Rhodey, the scene of Steve looking at the teenaged Nick, Tony, Nat and Bruce--and it clicked, I could see where it could go. I started making a soundtrack, I had it bad.

    How I Lost My Shit: Within weeks of sharing the file, real life sidelined Thassalia (she became a parent! Yay!) and I inherited the teenagers.
    How I Finished My Shit: These crazy kids wouldn't stop pestering me, but I've got several WIPs fighting for bandwidth.  The looming deadline gave me an excuse to focus on just this one until it was done. Seventy-five pages later, it's been a rough puberty, but I think we all made it out alive.

    Story Title Never Will I Forget The Deep Shadows, Never Will I Waste The Moon’s Light
    Fandom BBC Sherlock
    Link Story: AO3 | Art: AO3 / DW / LJ
    Summary The Holmes brothers come from a long line of powerful magic practitioners, but they are forced to keep their skills a secret. When Molly accidentally finds out about Sherlock’s powers and doesn’t turn away from him he slowly realizes that this pleases him, but soon enough he gets careless and is put in a position he would rather not be in, especially when others find out that she knows and attempt to use her as a pawn in their own games and machinations.
    Warnings Mentions of attempted torture
    Characters Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, Molly Hooper, James Moriarty
    Pairings None, though hints at possible Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper should there be a sequel
    When I Started November 5th, 2015
    How I Lost My Shit I kept getting stuck on this story soooo many times, as it was a commission that I had trouble with because of the magic elements (and the fact that Tumblr locked me out of my inbox for a year where the commission details were).
    How I Finished My Shit I almost didn't. The past few months have been absolute hell and I literally did not write the last chapter or epilogue until last night, and I just posted the epilogue twenty minutes ago. My life has been full of health complications that almost kept me from finishing but I was bound and determined to finish because of the beautiful art I had been given (seriously, it's stunning) and because this was a commission that deserved to be finished.

    DEAR CROSSOVERING CREATOR | FAQ

    If you're new to exchanges at AO3 and confused about how sign-ups work, read this tutorial about signing up for gift exchanges.

    As a reminder: You're allowed to choose multiple fandoms from within a greater franchise in a single request/offer, but we cannot prevent AO3 from matching on those 2 fandoms. For example, you might offer Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but if someone else requests Stargate Atlantis and Stargate SG-1, AO3 might pair you.

    Put short, if you prefer to receive or create a crossover/fusion between 2 distinctly separate franchises, we encourage you to refrain from putting 2+ sub-franchise fandoms in a single request/offer.

    For more information about requests and offers for this exchange, please continue reading.  )

    Signups open in 10 minutes! (Finally, right?) That means it's also time to start sharing your Dear Crossovering Creator Letters!

    These letters are 100% optional but highly encouraged (particularly due to the nature of this exchange). If you've never participated in an exchange like this before, a Dear Creator Letter is a post at your DW/LJ/Tumblr/Blog, etc. detailing your requests and giving your assigned creator ideas for possible art or fic. These letters also include your likes, dislikes, and any triggers you migh thave. You can link them here, as well as in your sign-up form. How you format or write them is entirely up to you.

    If you have any triggers (things that may cause you harm if you read about them), we highly recommend that you make that clear in your letter as well as in the optional details on your signup. Not every participant clicks through to letters, and this is the best way to cover your bases so that your creator will not unintentionally use your triggers.

    For more info and great examples of what we mean check out the following links: The Yuletide FAQ or letters from previous years.

    Keep in mind that letters are completely optional, which also means that creators are in no way required to follow the optional details. The only requirements are that they use the fandoms you matched on and that they respect your DNWs. Essentially: Optional details are optional.

    If you are posting a link to your letter here, we ask that you copy/paste the following when you comment:

    This year's tagset is now visible. (Alphabetical view.)

    We approved 534 nominations this year. That's 329 more than last year! Please check the list even if your fandom was rejected, as it may have been approved under a related tag.

    For those who like to keep track year-to-year, this year's most nominated exchange was Leverage with 9 nominations.

    We rejected only 3 fandoms:
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Star Trek Beyond — As they're installments in a series. We view these like nominating one book in the Harry Potter series. However, we're open to accepting installments next year.

  • The Hunger Games - All Media Types — As we've approved The Hunger Games films and novels separately. Because participants can choose both in a request or offer, we felt All Media Types was superfluous. Again, we're absolutely open to discussion on this next year.

  • Signups open Tuesday, July 18th @ 8:00 AM PDT. (Compare to your time. See the current time in Los Angeles.)

    If you have any questions or concerns about the tagset, please comment here or email crossoveringmods@gmail.com.

    Otherwise, we'll see you at signups! We look forward to taking advantage of all the changes to this year's exchange—and we hope you are, too!

    Story Title: The Lost and the Wretched

    Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Link(s): Story on AO3 / Art by MassiveSpaceWren on tumblr

    Summary: After his reanimation, Tony has yet to find a reason to continue his existence that isn’t hatred or bitterness. After decades of captivity in Arcadia, Steve doesn’t know if he even has a soul anymore. When the vampires of the Covenant of the Shield organize a mission to rescue Steve, it is a new beginning for both of them.

    Warnings: No standard warnings apply, but in this AU, Tony is Frankenstein’s (well, Yinsen’s) monster, as in, literally made of spare body parts, and some related gory imagery appears in the story.

    Characters: Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Nick Fury, Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton, Bruce Banner, Thor, Loki

    Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark

    When I Started: I wrote the first chapter as a fill for the Captain America/Iron Man bingo in January 2016. I already had an outline in mind for a longer story then, but I knew it'd be beyond the scope of the bingo. I estimated it'd be around 50k, and I really wanted to write it…

    How I Lost My Shit: …I really wanted to write the whole long story, but there was always something else to do, some challenge to work on, and I had neither the time nor the motivation to finish this. I prodded at it every now and then and made some progress, but not enough. I mentally labeled it the Epic WIP of Despair. At one point, I started posting it as a WIP, which I usually never do, hoping that'd give me the motivation to finally finish it, but that didn't work either, since the reader response was lukewarm at best.

    How I Finished My Shit: Since I'd already tried a lot of other things with no luck, I signed up for WIP BB. Deadlines are a great motivator for me, and that was also true this time. Although I worried about schedules a lot, I did, in the end, manage to finish the thing, even though it became even longer than I'd first planned. In fact, at 58k, it's now the longest story I've written in my life! And Wren did a pretty sad franken!Tony art for me! <3 I'm so glad I signed up! :)
