What is the Tachibana Makoto Birthday Fanworks Exchange?
A gift exchange celebrating our favorite Iwatobi captain and backstroker’s birthday. ♥ All pairings (het/slash/other; twosome/threesome/moresome) and non-pairings (Makoto alone or gen with friends/family/animals) are welcome.
What kinds of fanworks are eligible?
Art, comics, and fic. This year, we’re also accepting multi-panel manips (example one, example two).
Do requests/fills have to be birthday-themed?
Not at all! They only have to involve Makoto as one of the main characters.
Sign ups run now through September 20th on AO3. (Please note that you do need an AO3 account to participate this year. If you don’t have one, go here to request a free account.)
For more information about the sign up process and the event in general, please go here.
For future updates, follow this blog or track #mako bday exchange.
If you’re running another event for Makoto’s birthday or one for any other character in Free!, we’d love to affiliate and cross-promote with you — just drop us a line.
Hope to see you over there!

So I’ll just mention here that there are a number of ways you can help Mako’s Birthday Exchange, if you’re interested. The absolute best way is getting the word out by reblogging/signal boosting. :D
