The names of our artists and authors are now revealed! Check out the collection here.

Thank you all so much for participating. I’ll be in touch when it’s time to start gearing up for a 2018 round.

Remember that if you failed to turn in your assignment and did not default before the deadline, I’ll be asking you to do a make-up assignment before you sign up next year. If you have any questions about this, please contact me via gmail, where I am hamiathesmod.

Stories and art are revealed! You can read and view them here.

Stop by, enjoy, and don't forget to leave feedback. We have over 30 fanworks this year!

If you signed up for the exchange, you should be getting an email with a link to your gift. You can also find it by opening your AO3 page and following the Gifts link in the left-hand navigation pane on the left. Please remember to show your author or artist lots of appreciation!

Fanworks will remain anonymous until Saturday, September 2nd. However, if you'd like to reply to comments on the stories or art you posted, you can go ahead--your name will be hidden until then.

I will be leaving the collection open for last-minute treats in the meantime.

Thank you so much to the pinch hitters! Seriously, you guys are amazing.

All assignments are in, and we're in good shape to go live as scheduled at 10 PM EDT on Saturday the 26th.

You can continue to edit fanworks in the meantime, if you still need to incorporate feedback from a beta or if you want to polish things up.

Whether or not you're signed up for the exchange, you're welcome to post treats, or extra gifts! I've compiled the list of requests in this spreadsheet for easy filtering and searching. Treats may be any size or length.

To send someone a treat, post it on AO3 to the Hamiathes' Gift Exchange 2017 collection--you can use the "Post to Collection" button on the top right--and enter their AO3 name precisely as it appears on the spreadsheet in the "Gift this work to" field.

We have several post-deadline pinch hits. These are due at 10 PM, EDT, on Thursday, August 24th.

To claim these pinch hits, please comment with the number you're taking, your AO3 name, and an email address where I can reach you. All comments to this post are screened to preserve anonymity. If you don't have an AO3 name but can fulfill this request, just let me know--we can work that out!

The deadline is in two hours! Here's a countdown.

If, by the deadline, you have not either defaulted or completed your assignment, you'll need to complete a make-up assignment in order to participate next year.

Keep an eye out for pinch hits--I expect to see some after the deadline!

Hello, everyone! We're about two weeks in and four weeks from the deadline. Your assignments are due on Saturday, August 19th, at 10 PM EDT.

A few notes:

Whether or not you're signed up for the exchange, you're welcome to post gifts, or extra treats! I've compiled the list of requests in this spreadsheet for easy filtering and searching. To send someone a treat, post it on AO3 to the Hamiathes' Gift Exchange 2017 collection--you can use the "Post to Collection" button on the top right--and enter their AO3 name precisely as it appears on the spreadsheet in the "Gift this work to" field.

If you're interested in reviewing fanworks and providing feedback, or if you're looking for someone to review your assignment, check out the Beta Post! To be sure all the beta offers are in one place, I'm only making this post on Dreamwidth, but you don't need a Dreamwidth account to comment.

Finally, this year I will be posting all pinch hits to the Dreamwidth page for claiming. They'll go up as soon as anyone defaults on their assignment, and I'll post an announcement to Livejournal and Tumblr. If you do need to default, please do so as early as possible so there's plenty of time to find a pinch hitter to cover the assignment.

I hope you're all having as much fun as I am!

To fulfill your assignment, you must post it to the Hamiathes’ Gift Exchange Challenge on AO3 by August 19th.

You can choose any of the requests, not necessarily the one you matched on, but the request must feature the character or relationship listed in that request, must match the specified medium (fanart or fanfiction), and must meet the minimum of 500 words for fanfiction and 500x500 pixels for fanart. Relationships with an & must be platonic in nature, while relationships with an / must be romantic or sexual.

  • If you cannot fulfill your assignment, please let me know as soon as possible by clicking the Default button. I understand that things come up--just get in touch! If you don't either default or turn in your assignment by the deadline, you'll need to complete a makeup assignment in order to participate next year

I should be sending assignments out within a day or so–definitely by July 10th. I’ll be making all requests public at that time in case anyone wants to make treats. Keep an eye out for more!

Signups will be open for a little more than a day! They'll close at 10 PM EDT on July 8th, or probably a little later if I'm busy. :)

If you're curious what people are requesting and offering, check out the signup summary.

Sign up here!

***

One note--if your offer comment began "I'll write any character, really", I tried to get in touch with you, but the email associated with your AO3 account doesn't seem to be working! Right now, you'll only be able to match on the specific characters and relationships you listed. If you'd also like to be able to match on the other characters and relationships you specifically mentioned, you can go ahead and add them to your offer. You can email me or comment here if you have questions!

All right, everyone, nominations are closed, the tag set is finalized, and signups are open! If you've done a Yuletide-style exchange on AO3 before, the process should be pretty similar. If you haven't, have a look at the explanation and examples below, check out the FAQ and rules on AO3, and let me know if you have questions!

Also, please spread the word--the more, the merrier.

The signup link is here!

Quick points:
  • Signups run from Tuesday, June 27th to Saturday, July 8th
  • You'll need an AO3 account to sign up. You can request one here if you don't already have one. The wait list is currently at about 6 days, which should give you enough time
  • Please read the rules before signing up so you know what you're agreeing to do

I couldn't post a reminder yesterday about nominations closing, so I'm extending them until tomorrow, June 25th at 10 PM EDT. I'm still planning to open signups by June 27th.

If you nominated the character Laela, she's already been approved as Laela (Queen's Thief), so I'm leaving that nomination unapproved for now. Feel free to edit if you'd like a different character!

I still have two questions. If I haven't heard back by the time signups open, I will be adjusting these nominations to Relationship: Eugenides & Sophos and Relationship: Eddis/Sophos:
  1. Relationship: Attolis & Sounis: By Sounis, do you mean Sophos or his uncle? Do you mind if I change Attolis to Eugenides for consistency with the rest of the tag set?
  2. Relationship: Eddis/Sounis: As above, by Sounis, do you mean Sophos or his uncle?

Hello, all! Nominations will stay open until June 24th at 10 PM EDT.

I have questions on a few nominations [ETA 2 and 3]:
  1. Relationship: Eugenides the Elder & Eugenides: by Eugenides the Elder, do you mean Gen's grandfather, the previous Queen's Thief?
  2. Relationship: Attolis & Sounis: By Sounis, do you mean Sophos or his uncle? Do you mind if I change Attolis to Eugenides for consistency with the rest of the tag set?
  3. Relationship: Eddis/Sounis: As above, by Sounis, do you mean Sophos or his uncle?

If you want to see what others have nominated, you can click here. If you want to nominate characters or relationships yourself, you can click here. You'll need an AO3 account to do so (and to sign up for the exchange). If you don't have one, there's a waiting period, but it usually only takes a few days.

Nominations for 2017 are open! They will close on June 24th at 10 PM EDT.

There are some slight differences in nominations this year--mostly, you'll be allowed to nominate both characters and relationships. See below for details. I have also included Worldbuilding (Any Character) as a tag for those who want to request a stories about the mythology, history, cultures, etc. of The Queen's Thief without specifying individual characters. No need to nominate worldbuilding--it's already there.

As always, feel free to get in touch if you have questions, and please share a link with on your journal/Tumblr/other platform of choice!
