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

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.

I hope the whole community enjoys the stories and art!

I will be leaving the collection open for treats until author and artist names are revealed. That will probably be 10 PM EDT on Sunday, June 26th, but as I'll be traveling for a few days, that reveal might be delayed.

You guys are fantastic! I am thrilled this is going so smoothly. Everyone has a gift, and we are on track to open the exchange tomorrow (Sunday at the 19th) at 10 PM EDT.

What time is that for me? | Countdown to the reveal

You can keep putting the finishing touches on your stories and artwork until then.

When the collection goes live, author and artist names will still be hidden. Please don't do anything to reveal your identity (such as posting a link to your own artwork or story on your journal or Tumblr).

Next steps:

If there are any problems with your gift, I would appreciate it if you'd approach me privately at hamiathesmod@gmail.com.

Finally, if you're still feeling creative, remember the collection will be open to treats until the creator names are revealed on Sunday, June 26th. Here's more information on treating.

 As I post this, the deadline is in about 10 hours! That's Sunday, June 12th, at 10 PM EST EDT. (Edited so this matches previous posts and the link below. EST is an hour later. Don't worry, though, you can take the extra hour. Sorry for any confusion! :) 

What time is that for me? | Countdown to the deadline 

If you have any concerns about the deadline, please email me at hamiathesmod@gmail.com to discuss it.

Reminders:

As of the deadline, your gift as posted must fulfill the rules of the exchange, unless you have received an extension. However, you're welcome to edit, have a beta look at it, or expand on the gift up until the collection is revealed for reading and viewing on June 19th. If you still need a beta, you can find one here.

If some people who have finished their assignments don't yet have gifts by the 19th, I will delay this reveal until they do.

Important: After the collection is revealed on the 19th, the stories and art will still be anonymous. Writers and artists, please don't do anything that could identify you at that time! You can still respond to comments if you log into AO3. They will appear as "Anonymous Creator" until I reveal all the names.

The names of the artists and writers will be revealed on Sunday, June 26th, if all goes well. (I will be traveling on that day and may have to delay creator reveals if I don't have internet access.)

The collection will stay open for treats (extra art and stories) until the 26th. Here's more information on treating.

Hey, everyone! How is the exchange going for you? I hope the ideas are flowing!

I'm checking in with a few reminders.

Most important: completed art and stories are due on June 12th at 10 PM EDT.

What time is that for me?

I hope everyone's excited about their assignments, and the creative gears are turning!

As promised, I'm posting about ways you can participate in the exchange even if you didn't sign up. All of these are optional.

Treats:

Treats are a fun, extra part of many exchanges, where you can create additional fanworks for any participant based on their requests. I have made the full list of requests public. If any of them catch your eye, have at it!Rules and instructions )

Pinch hits:

If someone drops out of the exchange, I'll need to find a replacement artist or writer to take their assignment. When that happens, I'll contact a list of volunteers with details of the assignment. Signing up for the pinch hit list doesn't commit you to anything--you'll be able to review the requests and decide if you can take one of them.

Betas:

If you're willing to provide feedback on someone's fanfiction or fanart before it's posted, you can offer to be a beta reader or viewer! I'll collect details on beta offers and will post a Google spreadsheet with that information so artists and writers can get in touch with you.

To sign up for the pinch hit list or offer beta services, you can fill out this quick form.

Matching is done, and assignments are out! You should have received an email containing your assignment. If you haven't, try checking your spam folder.

If there are any problems with your assignment--for example, none of the requests contain the characters you offered, or all of the requests are for fanart but you offered fanfiction--then please email me at hamiathesmod@gmail.com.

General process or timeline questions can go in the comments to this post, but remember that this is an anonymous exchange until June 26th, so please use email to communicate with me about anything specific to your assignment.

Final reminder that signups close today at 10 PM EDT. What time is that for me?

We're up to twenty people! This should be a great time. :)

Thanks to everyone who's signed up! There are eleven of us right now, with plenty of requests for both fanfiction and fanart. So far there's only one offer for fanart. If you know any artists who might be interested, feel free to send them a link.

If you're curious which characters are being requested, you can see them here. The numbers are per individual request, not per person, and offers for Any Character aren't counted.

Signups close this Friday, April 15th, at 10 PM EDT. What time is that for me?

If you want to sign up but don't yet have an AO3 account, make sure you request one soon--it can take one to three days to get through the queue.

If you want more information about signups, you can start here.

If you're ready to sign up, the form is here.

After signups close, I'll run AO3's automatic matching algorithm. You will be assigned a recipient, for whom you'll create a fanwork, and an author or artist, who will create a fanwork for you. You'll get an email with the details of your recipient's request, but you won't know who is assigned to fulfill your request.

All right, everyone, nominations are closed, and we're just about ready to sign up for the exchange! 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!

Quick points:
  • Signups run from Monday, April 4th to Friday, April 15th
  • You'll need an AO3 account to sign up. You can request one here. There's a wait list, but it shouldn't take more than a few days
  • Please read the rules before signing up so you know what you're agreeing to do

Two quick announcements!

Final schedule:
The amended schedule is now final. Here it is once again:Read more... )
Nominations:

There are now 27 characters approved in our tag set! You can see them here by clicking "Expand All" next to Books and Literature. The nomination form is here.

Notes:
  • Gen's mother is in the list as Gen's Mother | The Queen Thief. This doesn't match the canonical tags, but Queen Thief is confusing due to the name of the fandom, and Eugenides' Mother could be confused with the god's mother.
  • If you did intend to nominate the mother of Eugenides the god, please reply to this post or email hamiathesmod@gmail.com and let me know if you mean the woodcutter's wife or the Earth.
  • Two people nominated Relius. I've approved the first, but if you're the second, I'm leaving that nomination unapproved so you can change it if you want.

We're ready to get started! This post includes updated dates and details about nominations.

New schedule:
I've amended the proposed schedule slightly by moving signups a little earlier. This will give us about two full months to create fanworks. Nothing else has changed. If you have concerns about the new dates, please let me know - I will finalize them by the end of the week.
See the new dates )

Nominations:
This is part of the lead-in to the exchange. We're going to set up a tag set on AO3 that gives us a list of characters to choose from when requesting or offering fanfic and fanart. From the FAQ:Read more about nominations )

I will close nominations on April 1st, sometime after 10 PM EDT. After that, there'll be a cleanup period before signups begin on April 4th.

Okay, this is happening! I'm thrilled so many people are interested.

This is the first exchange I've run, so A) I'm very open to input, but B) I may err on the side of what seems simplest this time around. I'm not an artist, so I'd particularly like input on anything to do with fanart. I'm basing those requirements on what I've seen in other exchanges.

Here's the plan. Please comment with questions and suggestions.

LJ announcements will be at the [livejournal.com profile] sounis community. DW announcements will be here at the [community profile] hamiathesgiftexchange community. I'll link announcements on my Tumblr using the Hamiathes' Gift Exchange tag as well, for those of you who said that was more convenient.

The exchange is hosted here on AO3. Signups, matching, and posting of fanworks will be on AO3.

If you don't have an AO3 account, you can sign up for one here. There's a waiting list, but it doesn't usually take more than a few days, so you have plenty of time to sign up.

Schedule:Proposed dates )
How nominations will work:Nominations )
How requests will work:Requests )
How offers will work:Offers )

Please spread the word. I'm so looking forward to this!
