Pinch hits all claimed

Go off and canon review and/or write.

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


Pinch hits 2 & 3 still available.

If you didn't see the original emails, you can view them on google groups.


All 3 pinch hits still outstanding.

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


Three pinch hits going out

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. 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) 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.


Assignments en route

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.

15 minute closing warning

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.


4.5 hour warning

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 24 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. Tell your friends, tell your enemies. Encourage them to sign up!


Fic Corner Sign-ups

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.


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.


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.


Nominations are open

Apologies for the delay, but I was ill yesterday.

Nominations for The Exchange at Fic Corner are open on AO3. You can nominate up to four fandoms and up to five characters. Nominations will close on June 17th at approximately 9pm EDT. What time is that for me? Note that your mod is not very good at keeping track of time in the evenings and this does not happen automatically but it's safe to say that it will probably close before 1am EDT the next morning.

To make this easier on your mod, remember that book titles are canonized in AO3 as Title - Author or in the case of multiple authors, Title - Various Authors. If you're nominating a book or book series that is also a tv show/cartoon/board game/movie/podcast/etc., I WILL assume you mean the book version, but there will be much tearing of hair in the process, so the more specific you can be, the happier I will be. If there may be confusion, feel free to elaborate in the comments of this post.

Feel free to use the comments on the Dreamwidth post to plan nominations, one book/series per thread. Please put title - author in the subject field for ease in coordinating. Once again, comments here will be disabled.
