Here are the rules that you must abide by to participate in this exchange.
 All stories must be at least 2,000 words. There is no maximum.
 All stories must be beta read. This is not optional. If your story comes in looking like a hot mess, we will likely hold it back from posting until you clean it up. We will have beta sign-ups, so if you don't have a regular beta, we can hopefully hook you up with one.
 No crossovers or RPF, please. All pairings, characters, ratings, and prompts are welcome and allowed, but must be TVD specific.
 The mods reserve the right to close sign-ups early if the number of participants is getting unmanageable. We will try to match people with prompts they are willing to write, which is why a variety of prompts would be good to ensure we can accomplish this.
 This is a SECRET exchange. Keep your assignment and story between yourself and your beta, please.
 Please type the phrase: "I'm here to eat cotton candy and steal your girl" into the subject line of your sign-up so we know that you've read the rules.
September 1st - September 7th => sign-ups September 14th => we send out the assignments October 14th => last chance for drop-outs* October 31st => fics are due November 5th => posting
Of course beta-readers can sign up at any time.
*Special Note: If you drop out after this date, the mods reserve the right to ban you from any future exchanges.
