It's not Sunday, the 24nd in my neck of the woods yet, but it's the 24nd in some places, so: let's get to it, shall we?


Things to keep in mind:
- Please, please, please: include any squicks and DNWs in the optional details box of your sign up as well as any prompts you might have. If you've written a letter that includes this, feel free to link it, but at the very least include your DNWs in the optional details box.
- You must make at least 3 separate requests and 4 separate offers. You may make a total of 20 offers and 20 requests.
- If the tag you want to select doesn't show in the drop down box on the sign-up form, please go to the tagset, find it, and copy/paste it in. This is a known bug for AO3 and it's an unfortunate and annoying one.
- Be mindful of which additional tags you are selecting. Only choose the ones you would like to receive a gift for or can create for.
- You are signing up to create a written work that is at least 1000 words in length, a piece of finished art that is at least 500,000 total pixels in size or a vid that is at least 1:30 in length that matches with at least one of the ships your recip requested. It does not have to be the one you matched them on.
- You may edit your sign up until sign ups close next Sunday, October 1st at 5PM PST barring any emergencies.

If you still have questions or you'd like to read a more in-depth discussion of the above, please see this link (disregard the dates, as they apply to last year's exchange):

Aaaaaand nominations are closed!

I'll be spending this evening and the rest of this weekend making sure everything is good. If you notice anything amiss, please feel free to let me know in a comment here, a private DW PM to spookykingdomstarlight, or via the swrarepairs tumblr.

If you’ve still got ships you’d like to get into the tagset, now is the time because nominations close on Friday evening PST sometime after 5PM.  If you’d like to see what’s already been nominated, there’s a spreadsheet here. And if you’d like to nominate some ships yourself, please go here.

Additionally, there’s a Discord server for the exchange and for general Star Wars rare pairs chatter. Check it out here.

Nomination Update and Note

We've already reached an incredible milestone of 500 nominated ships and there's still almost the whole week left. I am stunned and amazed with the enthusiasm. Please keep it coming. You can find the tagset here and the organized nomination list here.

Just a note: Jessika Pava/Rey was nominated. At this time, it sits at 239 works on AO3 that are over 1000 words, completed, and in English. Therefore, it's being allowed in. So if you're wondering why a ship that might end up over the rarity requirement, that's why.

Thanks so much, everyone! And please continue nominating! Then sign-ups will begin on September 24.

Nominations are open!

It is Friday, the 15th somewhere on this Earth and someone—and by someone, I mean me—is excited to get this thing going. And so I am happy to say:

Nominations are now open!

And once you're done there, check out the nominations spreadsheet here.

A few reminders:

- This year, the rarity requirement is 250 or fewer completed works of over 1000 words in English.
- You may nominate 20 relationships.
- All corners of Star Wars are welcome! Saga, Disney EU, Legends EU, all of it. Crossovers of every stripe are also welcome. As long as at least one character in the ship is from some Star Wars property or other, you're good.
- Please nominate all ships under Star Wars - All Media Types fandom. Last year, I created an organized list separated by trilogy, flavor of EU, and whether it was a crossover. I'll be doing the same this year, though it will be on a viewable spreadsheet rather than on the comm proper. You can find the link to it above.
- Like last year, Ben Solo will not be considered a separate entity from Kylo Ren for the purpose of this exchange. Therefore, I will be judging whether a Kylo/Ben ship is eligible based on the umbrella of the Ben Solo | Kylo Ren tag. However, as with last year, Darth Vader will be treated as a separate entity from Anakin Skywalker.
- Selfcest ships and moresomes are allowed. In the case of selfcest moresomes, though, the ship minus the duplicated character(s) must be eligible, too.
- For more in-depth discussion of the above, see the nomination guidelines post from last year. It goes into more details on the above reminders. You can find it here.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up for the tagset this year! Nominations will not close before 5PM PST on September 22. Sign ups will then begin no later than 12PM PST on September 24 barring an emergency.

Last year, we had a whole slew of community challenges and I would like to do them again, but I'm all tapped out on good ideas, so here's where you come in:

If you have any ideas for challenges you'd like to see happen this year, comment on this post and it may get added to the list.
