And thank you all for bearing with me.

Next year I'll be running [community profile] fic_corner again, probably starting in May and running through August. Possibly with a co-mod to keep me on track.

But now on to [community profile] yuletide_admin which will be starting nominations on 9th September.

Update!

Both pinch hits have been claimed. However in order to give the writers enough time to finish their fics, the collection will now open at noon EDT tomorrow. What time is that for me?

This comes with a caveat. Your mod is in the path of the tropical storm working its way up the East Coast, and there may be a delay if the power goes out AND public wifi goes down.

Claim via pm or email the mod at fic.corner@gmail.com

I'm hoping the collection will open within 24 hours of the original reveal date, but I'll take stock again tomorrow.

To claim, pm me.

Pinch hits 2-5 have been claimed, PHs 1 is still open.

There are a couple of people with extensions. I've defaulted the rest and I'll be posting another 5 pinch hits in the morning.

[personal profile] evil_plotbunny
Deadline is now 12:30am EDT (What time is that for me?) as I managed to post the 12 hour warning late.

The pinch hit from the previous post is still active. Any other pre-deadline pinch hits will be posted with the post default deadline, probably in the morning.

You've got twelve hours to finish up your fic and get it posted. You know the drill.

We've got one outstanding pinch hit atm. If you want to claim it, pm me, don't claim in the comments. ;)

You actually have 5 days to go (4 days, 16.5 hours now) - till the end of the day on 28 August, not the beginning. I've corrected the original post to reflect this.

[personal profile] evil_plotbunny
Apologies for going almost completely radio silent. It's been a crazy summer.

Fics are due in almost exactly 5 days. Let's just say 96 hours from the timestamp on this post.

Requests are open for treating.

The pinch hit was just claimed and assignments have been sent out. Remember that you were matched on any and only have to include the character(s) you matched on in the story. Deadline for stories is August 28th.

If you have questions for your recipient please dm or email (fic.corner@gmail.com) me and I will pass them along to preserve anonymity. More generic queries about the exchange itself can be asked in the comments.

Sorry it took so long. I had some issues because I forgot to check match ANY characters, so people who specified characters weren't matching to people who didn't. There were four people who had characters added to their sign-ups - either every character on the list or the characters they named in their requests. If there is an issue please DM me.

There is one pinch hit Below the cut )

Please dm me if you wish to claim the pinch hit (to preserve anonymity).

Sign-ups are now closed. Matching and assignments will happen tomorrow evening. Tonight mod go crash.
evil_plotbunny: Disapproving bunny disapproves of you (angel)
[personal profile] evil_plotbunny
Sign-ups will close in 3 hours (10:00pm EDT). Tell your friends, tell your enemies, tell your frenemies!

I am very short on sleep atm, so assignments will go out tomorrow evening (probably somewhere between 9pm and 10pm EDT as I've got a meeting after work). We've got a good balance of fandoms so far and surprisingly few request/no offer fandoms so I don't foresee any issues with assignments.

I no sooner opened sign-ups than rl decided to get crazy. I'm going away for the weekend tomorrow, and we've got a low turnout for sign-ups. I think we have enough sign-ups to go, even if no one else signs up, but as I haven't even posted a warning tonight and tomorrow's going to be a long day, I am just going to leave sign-ups open till Monday night and send out assignments on Tuesday.

Sign-up link.

I also didn't get the letters post posted, so link your letters in the comments to this post.

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 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.

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 23rd

You Can Do That in Fanfiction Tag Set.

Dear YCDTIF Scribbler letters posts will be up tomorrow morning.

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 link to your Dear YCDTIF Scribbler letter for your writer, this is the place to do so (if you don't get it written in time, you can always link it in the comments of the Scribbler posts.

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. 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 23rd.

Vetting

The tagset is closed. As we're running a little late on the schedule, vetting will run from now until your mod announces sign-ups are open (probably about 36 hours) Sign-ups will open sometime tomorrow evening (EDT) and from there, we're going to get right back on the schedule. I'll be away 24th June - 27th June, so I can't extend signups in the other direction. I will make every attempt to send out assignments before I leave.

Please note any errors you find in the tagset in the comments.

This is your official 2 hours 50 minute warning. The nominations will close for real at midnight EDT tonight.
evil_plotbunny: (bed)
[personal profile] evil_plotbunny
Nominations don't close till the 15th according to the schedule. Proceed as you were. Nothing to see here.
evil_plotbunny: (rarity)
[personal profile] evil_plotbunny
Nominations will close in approximately 2 hours. Not sooner, but possibly later. Certainly before I go to bed which lately has been around 1am EDT. If you've been considering the possibilities, now is the time to act. As of this moment, there is nothing outstanding in the queue.

Tag Set!
