Archive Opening Delayed (obviously), but not for long!

 As you have probably noticed, the opening of this year's archive has been delayed. However, we plan on opening it tomorrow, October 9, at approximately 10:00 a.m. PDT. What time is that where you are? Check here! (We will also post a one hour warning to let you know that it's about to open and any edits must be completed.)

As for our emergency pinch hit, it is still outstanding, though we have one writer working on something. That said, we encourage anyone (and everyone) to please write something for this pinch hit. (You may look at the full requests here.) Aurilly has been incredibly patient and kind regarding this issue and we would love to see some treats get written!

Thanks to all of you for your patience and understanding about these unforeseen delays! We hope all of these wonderful stories will be worth the wait! (Okay, we admit it, we've peeked, and they are definitely worth the wait!)

48 Hour Warning!

There are just 48 hours left to post your stories before our deadline of 12 a.m. PDT on September 30. (what time is that for me?) You will have plenty of time between that deadline and when the collection opens to the public to edit your stories for spelling/grammar, but you must have a complete story, over 1000 words and with a beginning, middle and end by the date above.

Also, there will likely be pinch hits coming soon and the deadline for all pinch hits from this point forward will be October 7.

And now, the usual links:

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.

Matching Update

Matching has run. Right now, we have four participants flagged as No Potential Recipient. E-mails have been sent to those participants, so please check to see if you have a message from us.

We will have several initial Pinch Hits as well, but we won't know how many until we've heard back from those participants without recipients.

We want to remind everyone that Pinch Hits will be posted to this Google group. As Pinch Hits become available, announcements will be made to both the community and Tumblr.

OFFICIAL DEADLINE HAS PASSED!

The final deadline for uploading assignments has now officially passed. That means your assigned recipient should have a complete story over 1000 words in the archive. Any assignments that are currently open will be sent to the pinch hit list. We will also be checking uploaded assignments and any found breaking the rules will also be sent to the pinch hit list.

For those waiting to snag a pinch hit, some will likely go out tonight and then the rest tomorrow, so keep your eyes open for that.

The deadline for future pinch hits will be September 3 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. We plan on opening the archive on September 4, so please make sure all edits to current fics, treats and pinch hits are completed before then.

You may still submit treats to the collection, and we encourage you to do so. Treats can be for anyone who signed up for the challenge, and there is no word count requirement.

Thank you to everyone participating! We look forward to all of the great stories we'll be reading next week!

ONE HOUR LEFT!

There is just ONE HOUR LEFT for assignments to be uploaded to AO3. (what time is that for me?)

Please make sure you have your stories uploaded by the deadline or else you will be considered in default and your assignment will be sent out to the pinch hit list.

The collection will remain open until September 3, for the uploading of treats and for edits, but your main assignment must be uploaded by tonight's deadline. The most recent pinch hit (#003) and pinch hits from here on out will have a new deadline of September 3 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

If you have technical issues or problems uploading, please e-mail us at crossoveringmods@gmail.com ASAP.

Thank you!

23 hours left!

There are just slightly under 23 hours left until your assignments MUST be uploaded to AO3. Please make sure you have fulfilled your assignment no later than 11:59 p.m. on August 27. (what time is that for me?)

While you will have a full week to edit for grammar/flow/etc., we will be checking all stories to make sure they aren't gibberish, placeholders or incomplete. Any assignments found breaking the rules will be sent to the pinch hit list.

Good luck!

TEN DAYS until deadline!

There are now just ten days left to get your assignments in! Stories are due on August 27 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. (what time is that for me?)

There will be additional time after deadline for editing your stories, but what you post by the deadline must be a story with a beginning/middle/end and be over 1000 words. Placeholders and incomplete stories will be defaulted and the requests sent to the pinch hit list. If you are writing treats, you may post them all the way up to the day before stories go live (September 3), and treats can also be under 1000 words.

If you need information on posting your story and the exchange guidelines, check out this post. And if you are looking for a beta reader or would like to volunteer to be one, check out this post.

Update on Assignments & Dear Writer Letters

We have run matching, but... assignments are not ready to go out yet. We are currently taking care of a few loose ends, and plan to send assignments out on June 30 at 3 p.m. EDT. (what time is that for me?)

That means everyone has roughly 46 hours to turn placeholder letters into finished letters, or to make updates/changes to your current letter so that your author will have something to read as soon as they receive their assignments. Letters are, of course, not required, but they can be extremely helpful to your writer.

If you'd like to link your letter publicly (for potential treat writers), you can do so in this thread. If anyone has any questions or any other issues, feel free to contact us via e-mail (crossoveringmods@gmail.com) or comments.
