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.
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.

You can join the pinch hit mailing list by sending a blank email to crossovering-ph+subscribe@googlegroups.
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!
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.

As long as everyone has a complete story, we will open the archive on September 4 at 6:00 p.m. EDT. We understand that this may be later than some of you are expecting, but we want to ensure that all loose ends are tied up before we open the archive for reading. That means treat writers will have until that time to finish and post any treats they've been working on. (Remember: treats can be of any wordcount!) You may also make edits to your already posted stories up until that time.
Thank you everyone for participating and thank you for your patience! We look forward to spending all weekend reading your brilliant stories!
The collection will remain open for anyone writing treats up until we reveal the stories. There will be more information on when that's happening in about an hour.
Until then, go go go go pinch hitters, you can do it!
We will keep the collection open for treats right up until stories go live, and we'll let you know when that is with fair warning, but it will be some time on September 4, as long as everyone has a full length story waiting for them.
Please note that we also have additional information available for this request that does not appear in the sign-up, so if you are interested we can e-mail you that information to help you.
Fandoms for this pinch hit include: The Dresden Files - Jim Butcher, Young Wizards - Diane Duane, Constantine (TV), Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling, Dragonriders of Pern - Anne McCaffrey, A Song of Ice and Fire - George R. R. Martin, Doctor Who & Related Fandoms, Firefly
Please respond at the link or e-mail us at email@example.com if you are interested.
Please make sure to set your email delivery option to “Send me an email for every new message”.

ETA: THIS PINCH HIT IS NOW CLAIMED! THANK YOU!
You may still submit treats to the collection, and we encourage you to do so. You may also make edits or changes to your stories while you wait for the archive to open on Friday.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this so far! We look forward to reading all of the incredible stories on Friday!
Remember, you will still have until Friday August 29 at 7:00 p.m. EDT to make revisions/edits to those fics, but we ask that you upload something ASAP so we don't default you.
Any open assignments as of 11:59 p.m. EDT tonight will be considered in default and sent out for emergency pinch hit.
You will have time to edit for grammar/spelling/formatting/etc. between this date and the opening of the archive which is Friday, August 29 at 7:00pm EDT, but we will not be extending the deadline any further.
Thank you! :)
We do have a handful of post-deadline pinch-hits to send out. Those should arrive in the pinch-hits group in the morning, so please drop by if you have the chance.
That said, running an exchange is a learning experience, and we've realized that two days isn't much time for writing. We want to give these pinch-hitters more than 48 hours to write. However, we still want to open the archive on a Friday.
Therefore, we have extended the deadline for ALL pinch-hits until Wednesday, August 27 at 11:59pm EDT. The archive will now open on Friday, August 29 at 7:00pm EDT. Author reveals will be Wednesday, September 3.
We know you're probably anxious to read your fics -- we're definitely anxious to dive into this crossovers ourselves. We hope you'll understand the postponement in this year's reveals. Until then, please feel free to use the extra time to make any edits to your assignments. This will be the only extension. The archive WILL go live Friday, August 29.
Thank you for your participation, enthusiasm, and patience.
As of right now, we are planning on opening the archive on August 22 at 6:00 p.m. EDT, so you will have time to make edits and revisions between and now and then. (And last minute pinch hitters will have that time to write and submit their stories.)
We currently have one open pinch hit which is available to view here.
That pinch hit has been claimed, but this one is now available in its place.
You may also default at any point before 11:50PM EDT on August 20. If you need to default, please do so sooner rather than later. We won't be angry; we just want to find pinch-hitters as soon as possible!
Remember, your story must be at least 1,000 words, complete, and in English. To submit your fic, go to your assignments page (http://archiveofourown.org/users/YOUR-
