Pinch Hits are open to anyone—exchange participant or not—and are assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The Requests Summary will remain open throughout the creation period. Participants and nonparticipants are welcome to choose from among the prompts to create treats. Treats do not have any minimum requirements and should be tagged as Crossovering Treat when posted to the archive.

Now that assignments have been sent, all letters should be unlocked so that artists and authors can see their recipients requests. If your recipient still has a placeholder or has not unlocked their letter, please let us know, and we will contact them.

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.

You should match to your recipient on the following:
  • 2+ fandoms in (at least) one request

  • Art or fic preference

  • Crossover or fusion preference

If for some reason you have received an assignment for something you did not offer, please make sure you contact us immediately so we can fix the problem.

As a reminder, these are the requirements for gifts:
Art: At minimum, a participant may submit detailed line art. The art cannot be on lined paper, but it can be traditional or digital art. Minimum size of art should be 500,000 pixels. (Examples of dimensions include 710 x 710; 500 x 1000; and 960x540.) Art should feature 2+ canons requested by the recipient.

Fic: Fic must be a minimum of 1,000 words and must be complete. It must also use at least two of the fandoms your recipient requested in a prominent way.
