Nonconathon is a recurring AO3 exchange for creating explicit noncon fanworks. Over three years, 480 works have been created for the exchange.[1]

Nonconathon is a gift exchange for creating noncon works. That means explicit works in which one or more people are forced into non-consensual sex.

This fest follows a "no kinkshaming" philosophy. If something (or everything) here is not to your tastes, simply don't view those works or don't participate.[2]

The relationship matching in Nonconathon is notable for its non-standard format. Instead of using the virgule the way canonical relationship tags are formatted on AO3 (for example, A/B) Nonconathon tags are nominated to clearly state which character is the victim (for example, A noncons B) and Nonconathon was the first exchange to use this kind of formatting.

Fan Comments

"It's fun to see so many variations of the trope collected together and see people really enthusiastically getting their id on. It's always felt to me like the participants were particularly active/engaged and there is a lot of interest in the works. I hope I manage a treat this year."[3]
"I will always remember this fondly as the first exchange that ever netted me more treats than I knew what to do with. They just kept coming, meme! People were so generous. Getting all my comments out within the anon period was stressful, but a very small price to pay for that embarrassment of riches."[4]
