You Can Do That in Fanfiction 2016 Schedule

Sign-ups: June 17th - 23rd
Assignments Sent: June 24th
Deadline for Stories: August 28th
Collection Goes Live: September 3th

Note that this exchange is designed to alternate years with , so Fic Corner will not be running this year.

We're open and an announcement

All fics in, all pinch hits done. Now your mod gets to collapse for 2 minutes before starts.

When I first started this exchange, I planned to alternate it with a kids tv exchange, either winter/summer, or every other year. Then I got tapped to help run Yuletide and people really liked the idea of a kidlit exchange, so I ended up running that three years in a row. But now it's time. Next summer instead of fic corner, I'll be running that kids' tv exchange, which is unnamed as yet (put your suggestions in the comments).

Eligible fandoms will include cartoons and live action shows aimed at kids or teens. It will definitely include the precursors to dedicated kids tv networks (such as Full House and Boy Meets World), but I'm not sure where the eligibility rules will come down on something like BtVS where the main characters start in high school, but graduate less than halfway through the series.

All stories in, but...

There's an issue where one of the stories isn't assigned properly to its recipient. I've contacted the author, but for now I am going to hold off on opening the archive for at least another 8 hours, and possibly longer. If this hasn't been resolved by tomorrow night, the collection will open, and I'll manually notify the recipient, but I'd like to give the author a chance to fix it first, as I'm certain it was an accident.

Last pinch hitter found

With any luck we should go live in the next 24 hours.

Deadline passed

I've got two pinch hits which I will send out in the morning. There are also a few people who requested and were granted extensions. The archive will open on the 7th or possibly earlier if a) everyone has a story and b) I'm not afk. I've got some day trips planned for next weekend, so don't count on the archive being opened early.

We currently have 50 fics in 81 fandoms. ♥ Feel free to add treats over 1000 words to the main collection or treats of any sort to the treat collection.


1 hour warning

What time is that for me?

Please get your fics in. If you haven't either posted or requested an extension before 12:30AM EDT, you will be defaulted and your assignment sent out as a pinch hit tomorrow morning.


25 hour Warning

25 Hour warning. What time is that for me?. We've currently got 34 works in 63 fandoms posted, so we're looking good.

Don't forget that the treat collection is also open, if you want to post treats there. You'll have a week between the deadline and collection opening to post treats. Fic Corner Prompts.

All Pinch Hits claimed, Treats Collection

All pinch hits have been claimed.

I thought I'd created a treats collection when I opened prompts for treating, but I hadn't. Fic Corner Treats 2015. This collection is for treats under 1000 words and will open at the same time as the regular collection.

Pinch hits 8-10

Two outstanding from earlier in the week that I never remembered to post and one from today. At this point all three are due at the regular deadline - midnight EDT on Tuesday, September 1st. Don't forget to claim via mod email (fic.corner@gmail.com) or pm to preserve anonymity.

ETA: All pinch hits have been claimed.
