And speaking of shipswap, apparently rare is in right now! rarepairfest sign-ups closed last night, and there's a rare characters exchange starting up soon at rarecharacters | rarecharacters. Still waiting on the details, but it might be fun, especially for those of you who tend to fall in love with someone other than the main character(s).
There's also another new exchange happening at tagyourit | tagyourfic where participants will be matched on fandom and trope rather than character or pairing. Like rarecharacters, this is still in the preliminary planning stage, but I think it could be an interesting experiment.
ETA: If anyone's looking for a more general exchange, nominations are open at ineedmyfics.
