Multifandom Horror Exchange is a Dreamwidth and AO3 based gift exchange that ran in 2020. The exchange allowed for fanfiction, fanart, original fiction, and original art, although other types of fanworks could be treated to participants. Participants in the exchange signed up on AO3 and were matched on a fandom (including "Original Works"), medium (fiction or art), relationship (a solo character could be nominated as a relationship), and horror type. The goal of the exchange was producing fanworks in the horror genre, whether or not the source material could be classed as horror.

2020

Works Created

The 2020 collection on Archive of Our Own contains 125 works in 96 fandoms.[2] Since AO3 allows for member only posting, the actual number of works created may be slightly higher.
