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.

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.

You should have your assignment now at the email account where you get AO3 notices. If not, check your spam filter. Or go to your drop down menu or home page on AO3 and check your "My Assignments" option. Don't forget to sign in first.

I've sent out the first 7 pinch hits (the tweaks we made while tracking down the bug reduced the number) on the pinch hit mailing list. Hoping these are claimed soon.

Assignments are about to go out.

Because we're smaller this year, I've got 9 people assigned to get 2 stories and 9 requests to go out on pinch hits. Sign up for the pinch hit list here.

Pinch hits will go out soon, but may not get assigned immediately as I do have to work today.

The other two pinch hits now have fics.

If anyone is currently working on something, can you pm me?

I've got a couple of people working on this but feel free to write treats.

First, it seems we've been hit by the AO3 disappearing fics bug. This is NOT a problem with the fics, but with the indexing, and it's something to keep in mind.

There's one fic where I'm waiting on a response from that fandom's wranglers before canonizing it. As a result it cannot be found via the fandoms index page, though it's visible when browsing all the fics. The fandom is The Magicians of Caprona by Diana Wynne Jones and the fic can be found here.

And last, I was so excited that that last pinch hit had come in that I didn't notice that another two other fic had not been posted. I've initiated contact with the assigned author, but if anyone wants to write treats (or claim it as a pinch hit), the prompts are below.

The collection will probably open on Sunday, time tbd. We have one other outstanding pinch hit so the collection will open once both of those are in.

Moontyger has kindly provided me with another prompt as no one was offering for the fandoms in question. Again, I will assign this to the first person that offers and the fic should be completed asap, because I will not be opening the collection until everyone has a fic. Please pm or email the exchange account at fic.corner@gmail.com

Dark Is Rising Sequence – Susan Cooper
Will Stanton


I'm always really fascinated by future fic for these books and would love to see what you could come up with! Some things to consider: if Will is the Watchman, what is he watching for? Was this really the last rising of the Dark? How does the forgetting work for the others – do they have substitute memories or just odd gaps? If it's gaps, do they notice? Either way, how does it affect their relationships with Will? (I've enjoyed future ship fic before and would again (I'm a big fan of Will/Bran), but I'm also totally fine with gen.)

How does Will handle growing up when he's really far older than he looks? Especially high school – what is it like to be an Old One, but with a teenager's hormones? Does he follow Merriman's example and become a professor? Does he ever use magic again and if so, how or why? As you've probably gathered from these questions, I'm especially interested in something exploring what it's like to be magical in a world that mostly isn't anymore, but don't feel limited by that.

Just a reminder that the collection will not open until everyone has a story. Please feel free to pass this ph along if you know someone who might be interested.

Pinch Hit 10
Request 1 by Moontyger
Dreamdark series - Laini Taylor
Rating: Any Rating
Any Character

I'm really fascinated by this world, the way it has all the trappings of a kind of twee Victorian fantasy, but it's not really like that. I'd love to read more about this world. Maybe a retelling from the PoV of one of the creatures, perhaps one of the crows? Or a prequel would be interesting; it's clear Magpie lived in Never Nigh for awhile, but we don't know many details. What was that like? How did she end up with the crows? Maybe a tale of early adventures? Or the first time Poppy spoke to a plant and heard it speak back. Maybe you could explore more of the changes Magpie has made to the Weave. Or you could go for future fic: what does this new golden age for fairies look like?


Request 2 by Moontyger
Snow Eyes series - Stephanie A. Smith
Rating: Any Rating
Any Character

The books tell us these stories are just part of a cycle of tales about Amarra (and a separate one about Amant). I always expected there to be more, too, more tales of Amarra and what made her so special to the Lake Country, but these two books were all there ever were. So my most basic request would be more. What else does Amarra do in her travels? What is her life as a Servitor like? How do the Servitors change?

And Osei: what is her life like after she finally chooses? I can't imagine all that time on Death's shore didn't have an effect. Or Beya: when I first read these books, I thought she was terrible. Now, well, she's not very sympathetic, yet her fears and even her actions and motives are so relatable. She's not even close to perfect, but I don't think she's a bad person and I'd love to read something from her point of view. What is her life like after Amarra leaves? How is it once she returns? Is their relationship ever mended?

Something about the Lake Mother herself and how she relates to her Servitors could be fascinating, too. It's clear things have changed and much has been lost. But how can that be, when she still speaks to them? What does she think about these later Servitors?


Request 3 by Moontyger
Toaru Kagaku no Railgun | A Certain Scientific Railgun
Rating: Any Rating
Shokuhou Misaki, Misaka Mikoto

The Daihaseisai storyline has made me incredibly curious about Shokuhou. What is it like to be a middle school student who can mentally control nearly everyone around her, including adults? How long has she been able to do this? Did she start out just being able to do little things? What was it like when she learned what she could do? Are there other people with Mental Out or was she the first? What is her family like? Does she even have one? For that matter, she hinted that she might be older than middle school age and she does look noticeably younger in the flashback scenes, so that's something worth exploring, too.

Or you could write about Mikoto. Why is it that she seems to be the only one still on touch with her family? You could address some oddities, too; for example, she tells the little kid with electric powers, who can barely make a spark, that "we all start out like that". And we're told she did start as a level 1 and worked her way up. But when we see her in the flashback to when she gave away her DNA sequence, she's awfully little. So when did she come to Academy City? Did they know she would be a level 5 right away? Or when did she develop to that level?

At the end of the Daihaseisai arc, Mikoto thinks that she dislikes Misaki, but they could work together in the future. A story about that could be interesting, too.

Overall, I am fascinated by the world of Academy City, so if you want to do a world-building fic, I'm up for that as well.


Request 4 by Moontyger
Ultra Maniac
Rating: Any Rating
Sakura Nina

While I'm not super invested in the whole Holy Stones plot they added for the anime, I love Ultra Maniac as a whole. Mostly, I just want more. Some ideas you could explore: what was Nina's time at school like, either before she became an exchange student or after she returned to go to boarding school? For that matter, what is her home life like? The series creator said that contrary to the portrayal of the Magic Kingdom in the anime, she'd envisioned it as basically the modern world with magic. There are lots of possibilities to explore with that concept and I'd love to see anything you came up with.

I'd also be interested in a story set after Nina returns to Japan to finish high school there. How does that go, now that she's no longer a bad witch?

Of course I love her friendship with Ayu in particular. (Honestly, I ship them, if you want to go there, but you don't have to.) Since we know they exchanged letters, an epistolary fic of their letters while Nina was away could be interesting as well.
