Name:19th Century Fic Exchange
Posting Access:Select Members
The Concept
[community profile] 19thc_exchange is an exchange for works of fiction based on period dramas. “Period dramas” includes literature written during the 19th century in any part of the world; movies, television shows, and mini-series based on that literature; and original movies, television shows, and mini-series set during that time. Periodically, the terms of this exchange will expand to include other period dramas not in the 19th c, including 18th c or earlier, early 20th c, and modernizations of old classics.

This exchange is open to fanfiction writers of all stripes. Het, slash, and gen are all permitted. Ratings from G to NC-17 are permitted. If you are writing NC-17 fic, the person you are writing it for must be over 17 as well as yourself. You must, of course, be 17 to read said fic. RPF and RPS is permitted if it follows the guidelines for the rounds.

Different styles and formats are all welcomed, as long as fics have correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Fics must be checked by a beta reader, though proof of a fic has been beta-read is not required, unless otherwise specified. Right now, we’re all working on faith.

The Mechanics
Exchanges will occur in rounds. There will be at least one round per annum (hopefully more). Each round will have a theme. One theme may be Jane Austen; the fics exchanged will only be relevant to Jane Austen’s work. One theme may be young adult period literature and media. One theme may be non-English speaking countries. If you have a suggestion for a theme, please respond to this post, or contact [personal profile] lettered. Your idea will be considered, though I make no promises.

Each round will begin with an announcement of the theme. Shortly following, there will be a sign up, where you will affirm your participation, request some fics, and state what you are willing to write. Once sign-ups close, you will shortly thereafter be assigned a person for whom you are writing a fic. The due date will be announced, at which time you will email your submission. The fics will all be posted anonymously. Once all the fics are posted, authors will be revealed.

If you are unable to make the deadline, you may request an extension. Extensions are always at the discretion of the mod.

If you signed up but did not turn in a fic, you will not be eligible to participate in the next round. You will have to wait until the round after the next.

The Future
1. This project is currently under construction.

2. Art is not accepted in the exchange at this time. This is subject to change in the future. If you would like to discuss the possibility of adding art to the curriculum, please respond to this post, or contact tkp.

3. These are some ideas for [community profile] 19thc_exchange rounds:

-Jane Austen
-Elizabeth Gaskell
-the Bronte sisters
-Dickens and Thackeray
-George Eliot and Thomas Hardy
-Oscar Wilde
-19th c. lit from non-English speaking countries and media based on such
-pre-20th c. lit from Central America, South America, Africa, the middle East, India, and East Asia and media based on such
-19th c. lit from America and media based on such
-19th c. young adult
-18th c.
-Age of Sail
-Gothic/supernatural 19th c. lit and media based on such
-real people in the 19th c.

. . . and more to come!
