Gift creators are now revealed!

A huge thank you to everyone involved in the exchange - I've enjoyed this immensely and I hope you have, too.

All being well, I plan to run Rare Male Slash Exchange again next year, with a similar schedule. I'll ask again nearer the time but if anyone has any ideas for amendments to the schedule or to the rules, please feel free to leave a comment here (anon commenting is on) or email me at

Also: if anyone is still working on a treat or two, the collection will remain open indefinitely - please do feel free to post. It's never too late.

Thanks again, and I'll see you next year!

The collection is now open!

A massive thank you to everyone involved, and especially to our heroic pinch hitters. I hope you all enjoy your gifts.

Update: Three works in the collection are still displaying as unrevealed - they appear to have suffered an AO3 glitch during the reveal process and I've contacted AO3 Support for assistance. All fics now revealed, with thanks to AO3 Support!

These three gifts are in Benjamin January, Magnificent 7 and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen fandoms. Gifters, you don't need to do anything - hopefully AO3 can sort this out, but I don't have a time frame for this.

Note: if you signed up for the exchange and completed your assignment, you should have also received a gift.

Please get in touch at (including your AO3 username and a note of the issue) if any of these things are true:

  • you fulfilled your assignment on time but you have not received a gift

  • your gift does not include any ship that you requested

  • your gift contains a DNW that you stated in your signup on AO3

  • Unless any of the above are true (and if they are, please contact me ASAP), please do take the time to read/view and comment on your gift!

    Creators will be revealed one week from today, on Monday 14 August.

    I've read Laurent and the Beast a few weeks ago and the story is still with me, which says a lot. I'm a fast reader and blow through books most of the time, so anything that stays I either hated or loved. Needless to say, I really enjoyed Laurent and the Beast.

    --- Nothing can stop true love. Not time. Not even the devil himself. ---

    1805. Laurent. Indentured servant. Desperate to escape a life that is falling apart.
    2017. Beast. Kings of Hell Motorcycle Club vice president. His fists do the talking.

    Beast has been disfigured in a fire, but he’s covered his skin with tattoos to make sure no one mistakes his scars for weakness. The accident not only hurt his body, but damaged his soul and self-esteem, so he’s wrapped himself in a tight cocoon of violence and mayhem where no one can reach him.

    Until one night, when he finds a young man covered in blood in their clubhouse. Sweet, innocent, and as beautiful as an angel fallen from heaven, Laurent pulls on all of Beast’s heartstrings. Laurent is so lost in the world around him, and is such a tangled mystery, that Beast can’t help but let the man claw his way into the stone that is Beast’s heart.

    Like this sounds like a cheesy Beauty & the Beast rip off, but I promise you, it's not.

    Countdown to gift reveals!

    All pinch hits are in, meaning the collection is on track to open on time at 23:59 UTC tonight, Monday 7 August! View the countdown here. The collection will not open early.

    There's still time to make edits to your gift - but please have them completed by the time the collection opens. Treats can be posted at any time - the collection will remain open for posting.

    Once the collection opens you might want to redate your work; this will be particularly relevant if your work is in a fast-paced fandom where it will bring your work up to the top of the fandom tag, but it may make sense for all!

    To redate your work:

    1. navigate to your AO3 dashboard
    2. select "Works" in the left panel; click "Works in collections" at the top right
    3. click "Edit" next to your work
    4. scroll down to the Associations section
    5. check the box next to "set a different publication date"
    6. change the date, scroll down, and post

    Hi, everyone! We have a lingering pinch hit over at [community profile] remixrevival .You can claim it by commenting at the linked post, and it's due on September 10.

    The requested fandom is Band of Brothers, but if you click through to the recipient's AO3 account, they have fics in other fandoms that could be remixed as well. (As with the former Remix Redux, everything on their account that isn't a WIP, a collaboration, a remix or a safe work is up for grabs.)
