Assignments sent, Pinch Hits needed, etc etc.

We have now officially sent out assignments for this year's exchange! That means you should have an e-mail with details of your assignment, or will be receiving one very soon. If for some reason it doesn't arrive in the next 24 hours, please check your spam folder and then contact us. You can also find your assignment at AO3 from the link in your profile that says "Assignments".

But that's not all, we have pinch hits and more to talk about!
  • We have two sign-ups that we were unable to match with a writer, so we have sent both of these requests to the pinch hit list. If you are not a member of the pinch hit list, you can go to this link and click join, or you can send a blank e-mail to crossovering-ph+subscribe@googlegroups.com and make sure you have your preferences set to "Send me an e-mail for every new message".

  • If you are already signed up to write for someone, but feel confident in your ability to write two assignments, please volunteer. We will be assigning these pinch hits on a first come, first serve basis, so anyone is eligible to take them on.

  • All of this year's requests are now viewable at this link, so if you'd like to write treats, you can browse at your leisure.

  • Now that requests are viewable and everyone has their assignments, it's important to make sure that if you've written a letter to link it in our letters post. Also, if your letter is currently a placeholder or locked, please make sure it's updated ASAP so your writer can get started.

So you've got your assignment and now you're wondering where to go from here? Check out instructions, details and rules behind the cut.

Matches were made based on at least two matching fandoms (though it is possible that you may share multiple fandoms with your assigned recipient). If for some reason you have received an assignment for fandoms you did not offer, please make sure youcontact us immediately so we can fix the problem. Rules for writing in this exchange are fairly simple:

1) All stories must be 1000 words or longer and complete.
2) You must include at least two of the requested fandoms in a prominent way. (Fusions are acceptable.)

More details regarding assignments are available in our FAQ, but please remember the following:

  • Assignments are due no later than midnight PDT on September 30. If you have not uploaded a complete story by that time, we will consider you in default and assign a pinch-hitter to your recipient.

  • To upload your story, go to your assignments page and click on the button that says "Fulfill" and continue from there.

  • If you are unable to finish your assignment, please go to your assignments page and click "Default" at your earliest convenience so we can find a pinch-hitter.

  • Beta readers are not required, but they are strongly suggested. We will put up a post for anyone who wants to volunteer as beta readers soon.

  • You can write multiple stories for your recipient (but at least one of them MUST be 1000 words or longer, no writing five 200 word stories please), or write treats for other participants in the exchange. Just make sure you use this link to post to the collection.

  • If you are writing a treat for one of our participants, you can tag it "Crossovering Treat" if you'd like to differentiate between treats and their assigned gift. Treats may be under the 1000 word requirement.

  • Please do not contact your recipient prior to author reveals. If you need additional information, contact the mods and we will act as your proxy.
  • You may edit your story at any time.
If you have any questions or need any help at all, consult the FAQ, comment here or contact us at our mod e-mail and we'll help you as quick as we can. We hope everyone is thrilled with their assignments and we wish you happy writing!
