Have you written? Are you writing? You've got about 2.5 days to go till deadline. If you don't think you'll make it, I'd appreciate it if you defaulted soon so that I can find someone else to write for your recipient.

I've got more pinch hits to post to the mailing list after I've had breakfast. You can sign up for the pinch hit email list here. Due to the rapidly approaching deadline, if these haven't been claimed by lunchtime (assume approximately a 3 hour window), I'll be posting them here and probably on the yuletide comm. Deadline for these pinch hits will be the same as for assignments. Any pinch hits that come up later in the weekend may have a later due date.

One other bit of housekeeping...since the exchange is so small this year, I'm not going to bother opening a separate collection for treats. Please post any treats in the main collection.

Go off and canon review and/or write.

If you haven't finished/unlocked your letters, consider this your reminder.

Mod is about to go to bed, so if you claim one, don't expect a response till morning.

We've got three initial pinch hits going out in a few minutes via the Pinch Hit email list. Claim by replying with your AO3 name so I know who they're being assigned to (or if you're reading on the web, send an email to fic.corner at gmail with the pinch hit you're claiming in the subject and include the recipient's AO3 name in the body as well as your own). You will only receive a response if you get the ph.

Also, those of you with Dear Fic Scribbler letters, don't forget to fill in your placeholders (I'm guilty of this one - don't worry it's on my todo list for tomorrow) or unlock your letters so your writer can see it. Fic Scribbler letters can be linked here whether or not you linked them in your sign up.

Sorry for the delay, but after some tweaking it looks like we've got 3 pinch hits and no one without a potential recipient. Assignments will go out in a few minutes and the pinch hits will be sent out tomorrow evening when I get home from work.

Sign-ups will close at 10:45pm EDT. Once sign-ups are closed, I'll attempt matching. If all goes well, I'll send out assignments tonight. If I run into unmatchables, I'll deal with that in the morning.

Figure you've got about an hour from the time stamp on this post.

[personal profile] evil_plotbunny
Sign ups will close in about 4.5 hours from this post's datestamp (given the mod's ability to not notice the time). Let's say at least 4.5 hours and leave it at that. I will post a 15 minute warning. I'm going to trust that you can check the previous post for the time & date link.

After several requests and some consideration, I've made the requests visible in the hopes that we might lure a few more participants into the exchange.

Sign ups are due to end in 48 hours. What time is that for me?

I'm a little worried because we're currently under 20 sign-ups and I'm not sure if we're going to get enough to make matching possible. Hopefully everyone's waiting till the last minute. Hopefully everyone's waiting till the last minute. Tell your friends, tell your enemies. Encourage them to sign up!

Just a reminder that sign-ups are open. I'll be camping this weekend and may be slow to respond to queries.

Sign-up on AO3. You will need an AO3 account, but their queue is down to less than a day. Please note that you must be logged in to sign-up. Sign-ups will close on June 28th

Fic Corner Tag Set.

Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters can be found here.

Requests

You must request at least three fandoms, and can request up to ten. You may request between 0 (any) and 10 characters. The exchange is set up to match ANY, not ALL to increase odds of matching. You may not be matched on ALL the characters you request.

By requesting Any, a participant is requesting Any characters on the fandom's nomination list. Do not be that person who requests Any in Fandom F, but writes about specifically wanting Character Z from Fandom F who wasn't nominated.

You may also request Any if you want fics focused on worldbuilding instead of a specific character(s).

Prompt URL: If you want to leave a Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letter for your writer, this is the place to do so.

Description: Optional details are optional, however, if you want to give your writer ideas, this is the place to do it, whether you write a letter or not.

Offers

You must offer a minimum of 3 fandoms, maximum of 10. You may offer up to 10 characters or offer Any.

The bucket list is enabled, so you can offer more than 10 fandoms, but any fandoms in the bucket list default to ANY characters, ANY ratings. More information about making a bucketlist offer (including a lovely diagram) can be found in the Yuletide sign-up instructions.

Don't forget to request/offer fandoms you want. If you're lukewarm about a fandom, don't request it or offer it. Chances are this will be the fandom you receive/are assigned.

Once at least five people have signed up, you'll be able to keep track of current request/offer numbers via the signup summary.

You may edit your sign up form until sign ups close on June 28th.

Sign-ups are open. The sign-up summary can be reached from the sidebar once at least 5 people have signed up.

Post or link your Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters here.
You'll want to list the following at a minimum:

your AO3 Name (especially if it's different from the name you're commenting with).
Fandom 1
Fandom 2
etc.
Link to your letter on or off LJ/DW

You can also post your entire letter in the comments.

A note on optional details
Optional details are optional, but participants may have very strong feelings about how they want their childhood fandoms to be handled. I ask that you also respect any squicks/strong feelings expressed in their letters.

That being said, your letter is not the place to ask for a character who wasn't nominated or a specific relationship, unless it's one of several options (or something like "I love everyone/Character X, so feel free to include them if you want"). Remember that your writer only signed up to write the characters listed and might not be prepared to write for other characters. Don't make your writer sad because they know they can't please you.

Short version, I overslept. Due to the delay, vetting will run until 9pm EDT 19th June (What time is that for me?), and assignments will go out tomorrow night once vetting closes.

I've got four fandoms which were not published for children or teens, but are teen-adjacent which I've decided to allow.

Biting the Sun - Tanith Lee
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
Ready Player One - Ernest Cline
Wayward Children Series - Seanan McGuire

I'll be sending the character nominated as "Judge" in the Henry & Mudge series through as Mudge, barring any new information before I close noms. I'm slowly working my way through sending fandoms and characters from the uncategorized/unassociated bins right now, so please do not leave vetting comments on those. It takes a while for the archive to catch up to the changes I'm making.

Vetting notes can be left in the comments. The Tag Set can be found here

Unanswered Queries:

For the person who nominated the Henry & Mudge Series, I've got one character I'm holding off on approving - did you mean Judge or Mudge???

New Queries:

For the person who nominated The Worst Witch Series - Jill Murphy, you nominated Maud Spellbody who only appears under that name in the newest TV show. Did you mean to nominate Maud Moonshine?

I'm pushing noms closing back till tomorrow morning as I've got other tasks I need to finish tonight. You've got till 18th June at 9am EDT (What time is that for me?).

We're about about 12 hours away from noms closing now. You've got till 17th June at 9pm EDT (What time is that for me?).

Note that the mod reserves the right to leave noms open overnight and close them in the morning. If this happens, there will be a post with the revised deadline.

Unanswered Queries:

For the person who nominated The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood, I can't find any evidence it was marketed to teens at any point. Being used in high school classes is not enough to make a book eligible for the exchange. I'll hold off on rejecting it till the end of the nomination process, but I'd need to see some proof that it was marketed to teens (not necessarily in the US or in English) before it will be accepted.

New Queries:

For the person nominating Postman Pat (TV 2004), this is a book fandom exchange. Either change the fandom to refer to the book tie-ins, or change your nom. You've got till the end of the nomination process.

For the person nominating Ready Player One - Ernest Cline, I can't find any evidence it was marketed to teens at any point. Winning the Alex Award for teens is negative evidence, since this award is given for best ADULT books that might interest teens. I'll hold off on rejecting it till the end of the nomination process, but I'd need to see some proof that it was marketed to teens (not necessarily in the US or in English) before it will be accepted.

I had someone point out that I'd accidentally left the tagset invisible. I did not mean to do that and currently nominated fandoms are now visible here.

We're about about 17 hours away from noms closing now. You've got till 17th June at 9pm EDT (What time is that for me?).

New Query:

For the person(s) nominating Wayside School - Louis Sachar, both Mark Miller and Benjamin Nushmutt were nommed. I don't mind sending them both through, I just want confirmation that they were intended to be nommed separately.

I had someone point out that I'd accidentally left the tagset invisible. I did not mean to do that and currently nominated fandoms are now visible here.

We're about at the halfway point for noms now. You've got till 17th June at 9pm EDT (What time is that for me?).

For the person who nominated POTTER Beatrix - Works, it looks like you specifically meant the Peter Rabbit books...is this correct? I'd rather not use Works tags unless it's unavoidable.

For the person who nominated The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood, I can't find any evidence it was marketed to teens at any point. Being used in high school classes is not enough to make a book eligible for the exchange. I'll hold off on rejecting it till the end of the nomination process, but I'd need to see some proof that it was marketed to teens (not necessarily in the US or in English) before it will be accepted.

For the person who nominated Ghostwriter, I am aware that there is a tie-in book series, but I need more time to research the details. Apologies for the delay.

ETA: I've had several fandoms come through with no characters, which have been approved. However, I encourage people to nominate characters for better matching.
