SIGN UP HERE - to February 20th, 11:59 PM Wednesday CST. (When is that?)

You can request 4-10 tales from the tag set and must offer 4-10 tales as well. You can also specify the characters you’re interested in writing or receiving (if characters were nominated for that tale). If you tick 'Any' instead of specifying characters, that means you’re open to writing or receiving any of the nominated characters for that canon. Ticking 'Any' is also how you request or offer a canon with 0 characters nominated.

You will receive a story that concerns at least one of the tales you asked for and one of your requested characters (also known as OR matching).

If you want, you can use the Optional Details in the form, or a linked letter, or both, to talk about your preferences for a request and what interests you about the tales. Your author may use these details for inspiration, but does not have to follow them closely. If there are elements that would ruin a story for you, please list them in the form, for each request, as Do-Not-Wants. Every author must follow those.

New this year: "Notes to Mods", in the Offers section of the form, allows you to tell us more about how you'd like to be matched. You can leave these sections blank, but if you enter preferences here, we'll try to accommodate them.

The canons for this year if you want to reread or try a whole new canon!

This information is also at our FAQ!

And if you’d like to see what people asked for in the past...
2015 requests | 2016 requests | 2017 requests | 2018 requests

EDIT: It appears we're being hit by the character glitch! If a character that is *definitely* in the tagset is not appearing in the drop-down on the sign up form, go to the tag set, find their tag, and copy/paste it exactly into the character area. That should allow it to be added.

Hello! It's time for the Sources Spreadsheet!

All 81 canons and their sources are collected here, for your perusal! Please check them out and see what you'd like to request and offer in this exchange!

If you prefer an alternate source to the one(s) we used, please give us the link! Please also let us know of any other problems with the sources.

2019 Source Spreadsheet!

This is a published-to-web version of the sheet; it should load faster than the interactive sheet, and you will not appear as an icon or anonymous animal when viewing it.

Sign-ups coming soon!

We will now begin creating the source spreadsheet!

We had two outstanding queries (Beauty and the Beast, 12 Dancing Princesses) and this is your last chance to clarify your nomination if these are yours before they are rejected!

Sign ups are on track to open on the 10th!

12 Dancing Princesses (Fairy Tale)

We already have the Grimm version in the tag set. The new nomination includes a Cobbler's Apprentice, the King, the Princes, and the dancing Princesses. It's been suggested that this is the Hesse version, but we can't find the full text of that version online, only mentions of it. Nominator, please help us find a full and legal source for the version you mean, or suggest another version.

La Belle et la Bête | Beauty and the Beast (Fairy Tale)

We already have the Joseph Jacobs version in the tag set. New nominator, which version did you want? The title language doesn't narrow it down - there is more than one French version of the story extant. Does one of these sources work?

Salomé - Oscar Wilde

Although the religion and lore content fits the themes of the exchange, this is a play rather than a story. Please choose something else!



General note

In some cases, we've approved fairy tale titles with a "generic" name (especially if they're canon AO3 tags) because there seems to be a main source with that title - for example, Rotkäppchen | Little Red Riding Hood, where we understand you mean the Grimm brothers version, or ; The Clever Lass (Fairy Tale) (which seems to be the Joseph Jacobs story. If you have a specific version in mind, please make that clear when nominating - the version we find for a source may not be the one you intended.


Nominations close on the 3rd! See countdown.

Because we've received a concerned message, I would like to clarify that the stories nominated under their German names were marked as being the Brothers Grimm version.

If you meant a different version, please get in contact with the mods at onceupon@fandom.exchange

Second round of queries, everyone!

We have two new ones, a request for help, plus a reminder to people who responded to our previous round to check for our responses:

Uncle Remus Series - Joel Chandler Harris

Brer Fox
Brer Rabbit
Old Man Tarrypin
Tar Baby


These are two separate stories: Brer Fox Catches Old Man Tarrypin and The Tar-Baby. We're going to need you to separate these into their two titles or remove Tarrypin or Tar Baby.

Tags: Brer Fox Catches Old Man Tarrypin - Joel Chandler Harris and The Tar Baby - Joel Chandler Harris

---

Davy Crockket and Daniel Boone

We are afraid that while both Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone have a lot of folkloreish history in America, they do not have any together nor is this a story on its own. We're going to need a specific story for each one to work from or it will be rejected.


---

REQUEST FOR HELP

We have a nomination for another version of the 12 Dancing Princesses that features a cobbler's apprentice. (We have already approved the Brothers Grimm version where the man who successfully completes the quest is a soldier.) Although we can find references to the existence of this version, we can't find a source for it. Nominator, please help us find a source?


Thank you!

Hello! Thank you for all the nominations so far!

We've held off approving a nomination for Witch in Jorinde und Joringel - because this character has already been approved in someone else's nomination. While we have no problem with approving this, we wonder if the nominator would like to use that slot for something else?


We have two nominations we'd appreciate help narrowing down!

La Belle et la Bête | Beauty and the Beast (Fairy Tale)

Belle | Beauty (La Belle et la Bête)
La Bête | The Beast (La Belle et la Bête)

Beauty and the Beast has many versions. We would like the nominator for this (and future nominators) to select a specific version, please. A good range of versions is found here.


Norse Religion & Lore

Hel | Hela (Norse Religion & Lore)
Loki (Norse Religion & Lore)
Sif (Norse Religion & Lore)
Þórr | Thor (Norse Religion & Lore)

We'd prefer to approve something narrower, please - either a story or a specific text. Sacred Texts has many sources for Norse Myths that you can use to narrow down this nomination.

Right now AO3 is having some major issues and I've been contacted by multiple authors that they're having trouble posting their assignments.

Me and Morbane have discussed an extension and I've decided to set it at 24 hours from deadline.

(What time is that?)

Hopefully AO3 will have healed by then. Status says it's back up! The deadline will remain extended though.

Everyone who's already posted, why not do treats? letters here and requests here!

Thanks, everyone. Sorry about the issues.
benedict: Illustration from Beauty and the Beast mod icon (Mod Once Upon)
[personal profile] benedict
Yes! In 22 hours from this post, it will be DEADLINE. You must have a complete story posted by then! It cannot be a draft, a placeholder, or a 'chapter one'.

Once deadline has passed, we will default all outstanding assignments (hopefully there will be none!) and put out PHs if there are any.

Thanks to our authors who've already completed! You rock! You all rock.

Countdown to deadline! and What time is that for me?

Hi! It's a week until deadline! We're also down to a page left of assignments to fulfill! I hope everyone's fics are going smoothly.


2018 Schedule:

Nomination Period: January 21st, Sunday to February 4th, Sunday 11:59pm COMPLETE
Sign Ups: February 9th, Friday to February 18th, Sunday 11:59 pm COMPLETE
Assignments out: February 21st, Wednesday COMPLETE
No-Fault Deadline: April 22nd, 11:59 pm, Sunday COMPLETE

Archive Goes Live: May 18th, Friday [no earlier than 8:59 am, may be later]
Anon Period Ends: May 25th, Friday [no earlier than 8:59 am, may be later]


Countdown to deadline! and What time is that for me?

By this date you need to have posted a complete and finished fic to the exchange for your recipient. If you have not (whether by not posting at all or posting a placeholder or unfinished work) you will be defaulted and your assignment will go out to pinch hit. If you have already defaulted, you will not become a pinch hit if an assignment for you is not posted.

Good luck, everyone!
