Official (and late) news

I'm sorry, everyone, but there won't be an exchange run here this December. I had hoped to run the exchange despite letting go of other fandom involvement, but there has been too much upheaval in my personal life lately, and I have to focus all my attention on finding a new full-time job. We are looking into the possibility of a late winter or early spring exchange, but that isn't yet set in stone.

The community will of course remain up for people to read past years, and if someone wants to run an exchange (whether for the whole fandom or various pairings, etc) elsewhere, we'll be happy to post announcements here.

Thanks to everyone who has made this exchange so much fun and such a great experience for the past three years. I'm sorry that we aren't continuing the tradition this year.

Happy New Year!

As we welcome in the new year, we say goodbye to 2010 and
the CM Holiday Exchange for another year (or 9 months, anyway).

We hope you all have enjoyed the 2010 Exchange as much as we have. We had a record number of entries and we think that was fantastic! CHEERS to everyone!!

We will be posting the reveals at the end of the week, so that will give you time to finish reading all the entries. And if you haven't commented on the fic you were given, PLEASE do so before the reveals.

A/N: I had a hard time getting a grasp on this, and wound up incorporating two of your prompts (“Prentiss/Rossi in an established relationship and Emily becomes pregnant” and “a fluffy first time story”) into this fic, though they did not wind up the main focus. I hope that’s okay, and that you enjoy it. Happy holidays to you!
