Just so you know -

We have one work in the collection that didn't reveal with the rest. We just tried unrevealing the collection and re-revealing it, so AO3 might send you a second email. Just ignore it!

We're working on solving this issue!

Archive is now OPEN!

Stories and artworks are now visible here. You should receive an email from AO3 with a link to your gift soon, but you can also find it here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/YOUR-USER-NAME-HERE/gifts

Author/artist reveals will happen in exactly ONE WEEK, on October 20 at 12 p.m
. PDT. (What time is that where I live?) We will leave the archive open for submissions so if there are additional treats (of any size), that you would like to post, you may do so during this period. 

Please note that works posted for exchanges tend to get buried when archives go live, as a result of earlier posting dates. We advise that you change your publication date so your work doesn't get lost in the fray. To do so, simply click Edit on your post and scroll down to the Associations heading. Check the box next to 'Set a different publication date' and change it to today's date.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns or the gift you have received goes against the challenge rules, please email us at crossoveringmods@gmail.com and we will handle it as soon as we can.

Thank you everyone for participating and thank you all for your patience!
 We've had more stumbles than we're used to this year, as the whole mod team has had some life events happen that take priority, so we truly appreciate everyone sticking by us!

DEADLINE!

It's officially past midnight in my time zone, so that means all assigned works should be posted and complete! We will be checking works starting now and in the morning and if we find any that are not up to the challenge guidelines, we will be sending out emergency pinch hits. (Boy, we hope not though.)

As long as everything looks a-okay, works will be officially revealed on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT (
Want to know when that is where you are? Or count down to it here!) If you still have treats to post, you may post them until that time.

ONE HOUR LEFT!

There is only ONE HOUR LEFT before all late pinch hits must be complete and posted at AO3. The final deadline is 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 12. (Find out when that is where you live or count down to it here.) 

At that time, we will run a check (to the best of our ability) that all works abide by the challenge rules. 


Our current plan is to reveal works on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT, but in order to that everyone who finished an assignment must have a gift. (If that doesn't come to pass, we will keep you aware as we adjust the reveal time accordingly. (

24 hours left!

There are slightly less than 24 hours left for anyone assigned a late pinch hit to get their works posted! This means every person who created a gift should have a gift in the archive at the time. All works must be posted and complete no later than 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 12. (Find out when that is where you live or count down to it here.) We will check, to the best of our ability, to make sure all works follow the rules of the challenge, so while people may edit their posts at any time, your works MUST be considered complete.

Our current plan is to reveal works on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT, as long as everyone who posted a story or artwork has a gift. (If that doesn't come to pass, we will keep you aware as we adjust accordingly. (Want to know when that is where you are? Or count down to it here!)

48 hours until archive closes!

There are just about 48 hours left for anyone assigned a late pinch hit to get their works posted! This also means any one with already posted works has the same amount of time to make adjustments or edits to their works. We will be closing the archive promptly at 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 12. (Find out when that is where you live or count down to it here.)

Still seeking PH #12!

We still need a pinch hitter for #12. Generally, we only do posting/claiming at the Google group, but I'm going to go ahead and do it here, too. Comments are screened, so if you want to claim this here, go ahead.

Pinch Hit #12 )

Collection re-opened & Pinch Hits available!

 We have now re-opened the collection for posting, so if you want to write treats, you are free to start posting them! (Please tag them as Crossovering Treat if you can!)

There are also two pinch hits available at our pinch hit group here. Those pinch hits are due no later than October 12 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

(I would also like to personally thank everyone for their patience with us. The mod team has been dealing with some personal things that take precedence over fandom things, so we appreciate your continued patience and understanding.)

Deadline has passed!

We've temporarily closed the archive for posting while we sort out defaults and incompletes. We'll reopen it tomorrow (Wednesday) so you can post treats.

Want a few extra hours?

Your friendly neighborhood mods need some rest, so you'll have until 6:00 AM PDT to post your assignments (except those who've been granted extensions).

Unfulfilleds/defaults will be posted to the pinch hit list tomorrow sometime. The deadline for those will be October 12th.

6 hours left!

Assignments are due in 6 hours, at 11:55 PM PDT.

Sorry for the math fail. It's just past 7 PM PDT, which gives us just under 5 hours until assignments are due.

I'm currently at work and without access to mod emails, so I will get back to anyone inquiring about extensions in about 2 hours.

ONE WEEK LEFT!

There is now just one week left to post your assignments and pinch hits! All works should be posted by 11:55 p.m. PDT on October 2.  (Find out what time that is where you live.)

There will be time for minor edits during the late pinch hit period, but your works should fit the requirements of the challenge by this point or we may have to consider your assignment in default. (And, yes, we do check all of the posted works!)

As always, feel free to contact us at crossoveringmods@gmail.com if you have any issues or concerns. Otherwise, check out the relevant links below:

Assignments + Pinch Hits

Assignments have been sent! You should receive an email from AO3 with your assignment details. Your assignment will also be listed on your Assignments page, which you can locate by going to your AO3 profile (http://archiveofourown.org/users/your_username_here) and clicking on "Assignments" in the left column.

We have 5 initial pinch hits. You can view these here. 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. Make sure you have your preferences set to Send me an e-mail for every new message.

All pinch hits claims will be done through the Google group.

Pinch Hits #1-5 Details. (Claim @ Google group.) )

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.

2017 Beta Readers Post

Expect your assignments to arrive within the next ten minutes or so.

For now, let's open this year's beta readers post.

While we do not require stories to have a beta reader, we strongly recommend it.

If you're volunteering as a beta, please comment here! Tell us:
  • Which fandoms you can work in (full list of Crossovering fandoms)

  • How to contact you: email, @Twitter, Tumblr, Skype, PM on LJ/DW, etc.

  • If you're offering SPAG, worldbuilding, character, or plot help ... or all four!

  • An estimate of what your turnaround time is

  • Your dealbreakers, aka what you won't beta, e.g., violence, non-con, cheating, mushrooms, talking animals, etc.

Looking for a beta but none of the volunteers have listed your fandom(s)? You can leave an anonymous comment here listing the fandoms you need help with. Do not reveal other details of your assignment.

Anonymous comments will be unscreened and can be replied to by beta volunteers with their contact info.

If you're looking for a beta and are worried about revealing your assignment, you can email the mods, and we'll act as go-between on your behalf.

Update on assignments…

We will send assignments tomorrow—Wednesday, August 2—at 1:00 PM PDT. [Countdown.]

We have a handful of pinch hits we'll also send out at that time. Pinch hits are given on first-come-first-serve.

This means that you have 24 hours to finish writing and editing your letters! If your letter is locked, please unlock it as soon as possible!

In order to maintain the two month creation period, we've made the following changes to the schedule:
Assignments sent: August 2
Assignments due: October 2
Final pinch hits due: October 12
Archive goes live: October 13
Authors revealed: October 20
We realize this creates a greater gap between the deadline and collection opening, but we wanted to open the archive on a weekend and give post-deadline pinch hitters plenty of time to work with.

We'll see you tomorrow!

Pinch Hit List: It's ALIVE!

 We're still working on assignments (getting closer and closer), but before we send them out, we want to make sure everyone is aware of the Pinch Hit list. We do have a few initial pinch hits to send out, so if you're interested in picking up a pinch hit, or just getting on the list for later in the exchange, here's how:

You can join the pinch hit mailing list by sending a blank email to crossovering-ph+subscribe@googlegroups.com or by groups.google.com/d/forum/crossovering-ph visiting and clicking join. Be sure to set your email delivery option to "Send me an email for every new message".

Pinch hits will be sent to the entire list when they are made available. To claim, you must be the first to respond to the message with a blank email. (Please reply directly and do NOT reply to all.) You will receive confirmation from a mod if you successfully claimed the pinch hit. If you don't get a confirmation, you didn't get the pinch hit, but you can try for the next request to catch your eye!

Update On Matching

We do have a handful of participants without recipients. We will send emails to those people tonight. Those people will have 24 hours to reply. After that, we'll need to delete signups to facilitate matching.

We also (naturally) have some initial pinch hits. We'll send those out along with assignments.

You should expect assignments to go out no later than Wednesday. We'll update you with specifics as soon as we're able to do so.

We've sent emails to some people whose requests may need a little tweaking, so if you have requests with 3+ canons, go ahead and check to make sure you haven't heard from us.

We appreciate your patience as we try to work out these kinks. We're so glad you've all stuck around with us! :) You'll still have the same amount of time to write; we'll simply adjust the due dates, etc.

More info as soon as it's available!

ONE HOUR LEFT!

Signups close in ONE HOUR! (Countdown.)

Please keep an eye on your e-mail after sign-ups close as we may need to contact people that are unmatchable. The quicker we hear back from them, the sooner everyone will get their assignments!
