* The following pairings are not allowed, due to their popularity in fandom:
Similarly, threesomes that include a non-rare pair (Sam/Dean/Bela) are not allowed. Threesomes with two non-rare pairs (Sam/Dean/Jo) are still not allowed.
If you wish, you may request ONE of these non-rare pairs as genderswap. For example, girl!Sam/Dean, girl!Jared/girl!Jensen, Sam/girl!Dean/Jess. You may request as many genderswapped rare pairs as you like, but keep in mind that doing so may reduce your chances of receiving a gift with that pairing.
* Original characters (both male and female) are allowed, as long as half the pairing is a canon character (Sam/OMC, Ellen/OFC, etc.)
* Crossovers are not allowed. This means no John/Izzie, no Jared/Dean, no girl!Sam/Inara, etc.
* You may not create a gift that features a rare pair in the background and a non-rare pair as the focus. Rare pairs must be the focus of the gift.
* All fics must be over 1000 words in length. For artists: 1 large piece (a wallpaper), 2-3 medium pieces (eg. headers less than 300x600), or 8-10 icons minimum. Fanmixes should include between 8 and 15 songs. If you happen to find yourself itching to try writing more than one prompt, or if you've written a fic and decided that you would like to make some art or a mix as well, then please do.
* All fics must be beta'd. Try spn_betas if you're in need of one, and we will be setting up a beta volunteering post shortly.
* July 1st is the deadline for dropping out. If there are extenuating circumstances, PM the mods, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
* Please include ratings and warnings on your gift. We don't want any surprises.
* All gifts must be original works for this community, and complete (no WIPs).
* You must post your story, art, or fanmix to the community, but please feel free to post it elsewhere after it's been approved.
* Please keep your assignment a secret! (Obviously, your beta doesn't count.)
* If there are any issues, tell us. Contact us via PM or email@example.com
