I'm seriously thinking about running a fic exchange for Dramione this year from January - March 2012. I know that's the old [ profile] dmhgficexchange slot, but it's really a great slot because it's right after Yuletide and other RL holiday ridiculousness, and most of the 'random fun' fests/exchanges (dramione_duet, deflower_draco, samhain_smut, kink_bingo, etc) seem to happen from late spring - early fall.

I don't want to look like I'm corpse-camping [ profile] dmhgficexchange, but on the other hand I totally want there to be another fic exchange that fills the same set of criteria that it did. Namely, a fic exchange that's a few months long, with potential matches between all participants, and with no limit on wordcount. [ profile] dmhgficexchange was so great that I don't want to see that kind of event vanish from D/Hr fandom.

I'd totally volunteer to run this thing, but I would only run it on AO3. Quite frankly, the level of work that AO3's infrastructure takes off of mods' backs is staggering. AO3 takes care of formatting issues, hand-posting work, excel-style tracking, does rudimentary matching, has a button set up to default with, and quite frankly automates a ton of the work.

Mostly, I'm kind of worried that people might be all 'what right do you have to take over the calendar slot for [ profile] dmhgficexchange' or otherwise be upset that someone's doing this. I have only been around the Dramione fandom for a few months, and I don't want to step on anyone's toes.

What do people think?
