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.

The Exchange at Fic Corner 2017 Schedule
June 3rd - Brainstorming Post will open; Any Changes to Eligibilty Rules will be posted (none this year).
June 9th - June 17th - Nominations
June 17th - June 18th - Vetting
June 18th - June 27th - Sign-Ups
June 28th - Assignments Sent Out
August 21st - Deadline for Stories
August 28th - Collection Goes Live
While I was hoping to shift the schedule to Memorial Day (last Monday in May) to Labor Day (first Monday in September), I'm late getting started this year. I've also moved sending out assignments earlier as I can't guarantee I'll have time to deal with issues the last weekend of June.

Go forth and brainstorm in the comments.

Got a favo(u)rite kids or YA book or series or story you want other people to write for or request? Want to know if you're "the only one" who ever read that one particular book or who loves that certain character?

Some helpful brainstorming links provided by [personal profile] elf and a few added by me.
Newbery Medal list
Links to other Youth Awards from ALA including the Batchelder (translation) and Belpre (Hispanic/Latino). Scroll down for links to the Coretta Scott King (African-American/Black) and Printz (YA) The Notable Books lists linked in the sidebar are also of interest.
Carnegie Medal. Poke around the site for the Greenaway and other awards lists.
Juvenile Series and Sequels
from the MCPL database (looong list.)
Goodreads Top 100 Middle School Must Reads from Goodreads
Obscure:
A List of Series and Sequels for Juvenile Readers. Compiled in 1915. (Edith Nesbit is included. And Lewis Carroll. And Dumas was apparently considered youth reading.)

Note that we're ending earlier this year. I keep crashing into Yuletide, and I need a little more space there. There will be no changes to the eligibility rules this year, so go ahead and poke at the FAQ and start thinking about what you want to nominate. Note that the dates on that post still reflect 2015 and won't be updated till Saturday, June 3.

I'm going to try to get the schedule up tonight, since we're scary close to June. Dates may shift a little from previous years as I'll be away the first and last weekends of summer.

Please note that after the initial wake-up posts, they will no longer be crossposted to LJ due to the latest kerfluffle. Dreamwidth will be the main comm, and tumblr crossposting will only happen if people display an interest.

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. Respecting the ratings you match on is not optional and 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.

Because we're smaller this year, I've got six people assigned to get 2 stories and 6 requests to go out on pinch hits. Sign up for the pinch hit list here.

Pinch hits will go out later tonight.

This is the real deal, folks. No more delays. 8am EDT.

I will not have time to run matching before work, so assignments will go out this evening, barring any issues.

Your mod still isn't feeling very well. Expect them to close at about 7:30am EDT unless I oversleep.

Signups will end at midnight tonight at the earliest. As your mod is not feeling well, there is a chance I will head to bed early and close sign-ups in the morning. If so, I will post before I go to bed.

At this point, the plan is to send out assignments tomorrow evening (EDT). If there is a delay, I will post.

The real one this time.

Sign-ups will close in 25 1/2 hours from the time stamp on this post.

I forgot to enable the option to select "any" characters in the offers section AND I forgot to enable the bucket list.

Both have now been enabled, and I'll leave sign-ups open an additional 24 hours in case people need to edit their sign-ups - midnight EDT on June 26th rather than June 25th).

It has just been brought to my attention that there wasn't a ratings option in the offers section of the sign-up. This has been fixed. If you have already signed up, please go back and edit your sign-up to give your ratings preferences for writing (if you so choose, it's not necessary if you're comfortable with any rating).
