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.

If you have questions or concerns, you can email my gmail at hamiathesmod or (if it's a general process question, not specific to your assignment) reply to these posts.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you're concerned about the deadline. If you need to default, you can do this on the My Assignments page on AO3, or you can email me.

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!

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.

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.
