  1. Different incarnations of a Time Lord or Lady count as different characters for this, so people will be able to select exactly which version they want to request or offer. We will not be approving relationships with general identities (such as "The Doctor", "The Master", "Romana") - please change your nominations and specify a version!

  2. Relationships should be formatted with slashes (A/B), not ampersands (A & B) - to make matching easier, we don't separate romantic/sexual and platonic relationships. We will not be approving nominations with ampersands, so if you nominated any such relationships, please change your nominations to the correct format.
In general, please make sure you've read the nominations instructions carefully before nominating!

One day left! Assignments are due in 24 hours, on November 20th at 8pm GMT. (When is that for me?)

Here is a quick guide for how to upload your work to AO3.

If you can't finish your entry by the deadline but think you'll be able to finish with a few days extra, please contact your mods at publiccall.exchange@gmail.com, send in your unfinished draft and ask for an extension. (Please understand that we can't grant extensions without a draft.)

Good luck on the final stretch!

We're past the deadline now - thank you to everyone who uploaded a story! And good luck to everyone who has asked for an extension and sent in their drafts, as well as our intrepid pinch-hitter!

If you have neither uploaded a story nor contacted us, you have until tomorrow to post your story, or get in touch at publiccall.exchange@gmail.com with your unfinished draft and ask for an extension. After that, we'll consider you to have defaulted, and will send your assignment out as a pinch-hit.

(On the other hand, if you might be able to help out as a pinch-hitter, remember you can sign up here!)
