Fic Corner Brainstorming

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.

Fic Corner has moved to Dreamwidth. Go forth and brainstorm in the comments there. (Comments for this post have been disabled.)

Schedule for 2017

The Exchange at Fic Corner 2017 Schedule

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.

The brainstorming post will not be crossposted, but I will post a link to the dreamwidth post in this comm.

Fic Corner is happening this year.

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.
A Kids' and YA TV Fic Exchange

Link: or

Description:You Can Do That in Fanfiction is a gift exchange for fic based on children's and YA tv shows. The FAQ can be found on the youcandothatinfanfiction (DW) or ycdtif (LJ) comms.

You Can Do That in Fanfiction 2016 Schedule
Nominations: June 6th - June 15th
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.
