It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have two volunteer reccers who signed up for July with these fandoms:

* Hannibal ([personal profile] dreamkist)
* The Raven Cycle ([personal profile] delacourtings)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in July, it would of course be awesome if we had some more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far only NO reccer has volunteered for August, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for July, August or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of June. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Why this piece is awesome: Roncheg has two amazing styles, loose yet detailed animated style and stuff like this, heavy and intense yet minimalist. The line work is wonderful and the piece is sexy without being explicit

Why this piece is awesome: normally I don't do the same artist twice in a month but I couldn't resist reccing this piece it's so gorgeous. How the artist makes these colors work I'll never know but it's a vibrantly alive portrait of Lydia that smacked me in the face enough to get me off my Sterek kick for a moment.

2017 Preliminaries

[personal profile] genexmod posting in [community profile] genex
Tentative schedule:
Nominations: 27th June - 5th July
Signups: 7th - 15th July
Works due - 1st/2nd September
Works revealed - 9th September
Creators revealed - 16th September
Does this schedule work? Any issues?
(I do have issues with moving these dates very much, in that my Internet is limited to my phone until my home Internet gets repaired, around the 27th-28th, maybe the 29th or 30th at the worst, and I can't accept nominations very quickly on my phone, and I will have limited time from the 19th for about a week and a half due to prior IRL obligations).

Rules and FAQs have been revised. New FAQs are here; old FAQs can be found here.

Nominations:
The tagset from last year is here. Does the grouping of fandoms work? In particular,
  • Tolkien as The Silmarillion, The Lord of the Rings books, The Lord of the Rings movies, The Hobbit books, and The Hobbit movies
  • Marvel - MCU, individual TV shows, comics under their own 'verse (no overall Marvel comics tag)
  • Ditto for DC
  • Star Wars is split into Originals, Sequels, Prequels, Rebels, Clone Wars, Legends, and comics
  • This year, I'd also like nominators to refrain from All Media Types tags as much as possible
If there are any issues you spotted last year, or if you think this grouping doesn't work, please leave a comment.

turlough: Ishi-jo wielding naginata, Japanese woodblock print ((other) warrior woman)
[personal profile] turlough posting in [community profile] fanart_recs
Fandom: Narnia
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: The White Witch / Jadis & wolves & dwarf
Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: acrylic & digital
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] goldendaniel

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a fantastic portrait of Jadis. Very different from almost every depiction I've seen before, but very fitting both to her incarnation as the White Witch and as the Empress of Charn. Here she's both beautiful and scary and also looks very, very powerful.

GenEx is an exchange for '&' relationships (i.e. gen relationships.)

Rules and FAQs from last year.

Rules
  • Romantic and/or sexual relationships should not be the main focus of the work.
  • You must either drawn clean lineart with at least basic coloring, inking, shading etc. (no graphics or photomanips allowed) or write a fic with a minimum of 1000 words. Work must be of adequate quality to be gifted. DNWs stated in the signup should not be included in the work.
  • Authors cannot deanon by mentioning their name in the work before the anonymous period is over. Artists can insert a watermark if they wish to. Crossposting is not allowed until the anonymous period is over.
  • There must be a working email address attached to your AO3 account so I can contact you.
  • Don't wank in exchange spaces, don't be rude.


FAQ
How many fandoms and relationships can I nominate?
You may nominate up to 7 fandoms, with a maximum of 7 characters in each fandom.#

Can I nominate more than two people in a relationship, for example A & B & C?
Yes.

Can I request [character] & any?
Yes.

How many fandoms and relationships can I request?
You may request a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20, or any (any relationship in the tagset), relationships.

How many fandoms and relationships can I offer?
You may offer a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 fandoms, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20, or any (any relationship in the tagset), relationships.

Are crossover relationships allowed?
Yes. Crossover relationship must be nominated under 'Crossover Fandom'.

Are original works allowed?
Yes. Relationships for original works must be nominated under 'Original Works'.

How does matching work?
You will be matched on a minimum of one fandom and one relationship within that fandom. If no-one has offered what you've requested, your requests will be sent out as an initial pinch hit. If no-one has requested what you've offered, I'm afraid you'll have to add pairings/fandoms to your signup or drop out of the exchange.

Are treats allowed?
Yes!

What are the minimum requirements for treats?
There aren't any.

Is there a seperate collection for treats?
No. Treats go in the main collection.

I need an extension!
Please contact me at least 12 hours before the deadline if you need more time. I cannot give extensions that are closer than 72 hours to the time of reveals.

Is there a penalty for defaulting?
No. However, if you're defaulting due to issues with the assignment etc, please remember that if you default earlier I have more time to find an initial pinch hit.

Do I need to tag my work with the & relationship on AO3?
No. The tags in the tagset are for matching purposes; as long as the work contains a requested gen relationship between characters you're fine.

I left a comment on LiveJournal/left an ask on Tumblr/messaged you on Tumblr and you haven't replied.
There is only an RSS feed on LJ; I don't get notifications for comments on the feed. The Tumblr is for promotional purposes only. Please direct all question to the DW comm or email me at genexmoderator@gmail.com .

How can I contact you?
Leave a comment on this post, or email me at genexmoderator@gmail.com

I have a problem with my assignment/gift.
Please contact me privately and I'll see what I can do. (If you've matched with someone who hasn't requested at least one of your offered relationships in one fandom you've offered, I can fix that, but I can't swap assignments around. And yes, I can deal with gifts which break the rules.)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Sera

Why this piece is awesome: I think this captures Sera's energy, and it's a pretty interesting style.

[personal profile] longlivehumour posting in [community profile] gensplosion
FANDOM: The Thick of It
FIC LINK: Uncertain Sideways Streets
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] grenadine
RATING/WARNING(S): T | liberal use of the letter f; spoilers for Spinners and Losers and the beginning of Season 4
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 6,300
MAIN CHARACTERS: Nicola Murray, Malcolm Tucker, (Ollie Reeder, Glen Cullen, Julius Nicholson)

FIC SUMMARY: During the election, Nicola Murray hits a wall.

RECCER'S NOTES: Politics fic! Nicola gets a rare chance to shine here, because for all her many (many, many many) flaws, she was one of the few ideologically honest people in DoSAC. And her voice is brilliant, and the dialogue is brilliant, and the characterisation is brilliant, and of all the fics I want to write on my skin until they can be absorbed as a permanent part of my system, this one's damn well near the top of the list.

And when you're done with that, head to Close Your Eyes and Think of Agincourt, by the same author and set prior to Uncertain.
