Not Prime Time - fanfic exchange for medium-sized fandoms

This is like Yultide in June: "Not Ready For Prime Time (Fandoms), or otherwise known as Not Prime Time, is a gen, het, femslash, and slash multifandom secret fiction exchange for medium sized fandoms. This is for the fandoms that are no longer eligible for Yuletide but are not megafandoms."

LOTR RPF qualifies, as we only have about 3,200 works on AO3. Right now, the nomination list only has Sean Astin and Elijah (scroll to RPF and open the section).

The process is pretty much like Yuletide. In the FAQ, they suggest that only people planning to participate in the exchange submit nominations:
You may request up to 4 fandoms, minimum of 3. The maximum of characters you can request in one fandom is 4. If you’d like to request fic about a group of characters, don’t forget to nominate the ensemble during nominations (as an example, on AO3, The Lord of the Rings fandom has a character tag called The Fellowship of the Ring to denote a specific group of characters)
Here are the Nominations Page and instructions -- nominations closing April 12 at midnight Pacific time

Hope someone will enjoy this, thanks to [personal profile] lbilover for explaining this. A shame it's for fic and not other kinds of fanworks too.

I never thought to see the day when LOTR RPS wasn't a top of the heap fandom. This is a get idea and thanks for sharing it. Not that I'll be able to participate at this time but I do so like the idea that there are still people out there keeping it going. Thanks for posting about it.

The vast bulk of Lotrips was written before AO3 was around and not much of it has been uploaded. Or so I tell myself to comfort myself...
