Feitian Valentine’s Exchange seeks to celebrate the couples in Feitian Yexiang’s novels, both popular and rare. Participants create works requested by their assigned recipients in secret and reveal it on February 14th.
- Sign-ups: 5-10 January
- Assignments: 11-12 January
- First Check-in: 29 January
- Second Check-in: 10 February
- Posting: 14 February - deadline at 23:59 UTC (check what time it is in your timezone)
How does it work?
During Sign-ups, people use the form available to request and offer to create works (writing, art, others) for Feitian Yexiang novels' couples. Participants most offer and request multiple ships and novels.
After sign-ups, participants are matched up based on what they offered and requested, and Assignments are sent out. Written stories have a minimum of 1,000 words and art fills must be of a finished illustration, and centered around one of the recipient's requested ships. Though an assignment will have multiple novels and ships, participants are only expected to create 1 work.
All works are posted on February 14th. Tag the recipient or name them in the post and let them know your fill. Prior to posting, please keep your assignments secret and do not inform your recipients!
Feel free to discuss the event’s details on #chicken-event or the novel’s respective channels, but please don’t reveal who you’re writing for!
You can email [email protected] or DM the Feitian Events Twitter account at @feitianweek. For general questions, though, you can also drop by the #chicken-week channel on Discord. Note that this is not the proper channel to ask or request certain things.
You may email the moderators if you have questions regarding your assignment, such as asking for a change or requesting extensions.
However, if you have further questions about your assignment and would like to ask the recipient, message the moderators, do not directly contact the recipient.
What am I committing to if I sign-up?
By signing up, you are committing to create 1 work that is complete, that features at least 1 of your recipient’s requested ship. There is a minimum word count of 1,000 words for fanfiction, and fanart should be a finished illustration, however it translates in your art style.
You are not required to adhere to your recipient’s prompts, but you are required to respect and avoid their do-not-wants. You are only required to feature 1 of your recipient’s requested ship.
Please reconsider if you are reasonably sure you won’t be able to finish your piece.
The form can be found here.
Upon signing up, you are asked to provide at least 2 ships, with a maximum of 5. This is so that there is more room for matching between participants while allowing lesser-known ships to be in the pool without risking those participants having no match. You may add optional prompts and do-not-wants.
You are also required to offer either 1 novel where you’re willing to create for multiple ships, or at least 2 novels. Any fewer and the matching would not work. If you check at least 2 novels, you are allowed to include NOTPs.
Assignments will be sent out by email on January 11-12. Please contact the mods if you have not received it by that date.
Moderators will contact you for 2 check-ins leading up to February 14th.
- On the first check-in, you must prove that you have either started or planned your work.
- On the second check-in, authors must have at least 800 words written and artists must have started the last stage of their piece.
Defaulting and Pinch Hits
When you default, a pinch-hitter will take over your current assignment. However, in turn, you are to create a work for the pinch-hitter to be delivered on White Day.
