Run Write like the wind!

Stories are due at 11:59 PM EDT on Saturday, 29 April. What time is that for me?

Please make sure your story is complete, meets the requirements, and is not in Draft status at that time. You'll have two weeks after the deadline to make any final edits. If you're looking for a beta reader or willing to offer beta services, check out this post.

Anyone who is not signed up for the exchange but took a pinch hit is welcome to leave requests for treats at this post. If you're looking for someone to treat, that's a great place to start!

If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us here or at fandom5kmod@gmail.com.

First, there are approximately two days left for the mandatory check-in. Whether you signed up for the exchange, claimed a pinch hit, or both, please leave a comment on this post by 11:59 PM EDT on 8 April. What time is that for me?

So far, 66 people have checked in, which is great! We’re waiting on 33 replies.

Second, pinch hitters are the heroes of any exchange, but we’re especially grateful to everyone who’s pinch hitting for Fandom 5K. That’s a huge commitment without any guarantee of a story in return.

A number of people are writing pinch hits but didn’t sign up for the exchange, and we’d like to give them the opportunity to leave prompts for treats. Treats for pinch hitters go in the same location as treats for anyone else: Fandom 5K for stories 5,000 words and up, Fandom Couch for anything up to 4,999 words.

If you picked up a pinch hit but aren’t signed up, please leave your AO3 name in a comment along with the fandoms you’re interested in. You can specify characters/relationships, genres, and prompts if you like.

Everyone else, go forth and treat!

The mandatory check-in period is upon us!

Please reply to this post by 11:59 PM EDT on 8 April. What time is that for me?

If you do not reply to this post by 8 April, you will be defaulted automatically. Please do respond either way, though, so we know as early as possible if you need to back out!

If you have taken a pinch hit, please leave one comment for your original assignment and a separate comment for your pinch hit. That will make tracking easier for us.

All replies to this post are screened. We plan to hold resultant pinch hits until the end of the check-in period, so keep an eye out on 9 April! In the meantime, there are several new pinch hits at this post. All pinch hits up to now have been claimed. Thank you!

Hello, everyone! We hope the writing is going well. It’s time for some housekeeping and general reminders.

First, the no-penalty default deadline is in about one week: 1 April at 11:59 PM, EST. There’s a countdown here.

Second, on 2 April, we’ll open a post here for the mandatory check-in. By 8 April, you must leave a simple comment on that post to let us know you’re still committed to the exchange. Anyone who doesn’t comment will be defaulted automatically at the end of the check-in period.

If you’ll be unable to check in with us during that time, please contact us in advance at fandom5kmod@gmail.com.

Third, a quick reminder that if you’re looking for a beta or cheerleader, or you’re interested in beta-reading or cheerleading for someone else, the beta post is here.

And, finally, a huge thank-you to our pinch hitters! We have two pinch hits outstanding. You can check them out and sign up at this post.

Fill out this Google Form to add your name to the list! You can specify what type of services you're offering, which fandoms you're interested in, and whether there's any content you're unwilling to read.

Looking for a beta reader, canon compliance checker, or someone to cheerlead you and help brainstorm plot ideas? You can find the list of offers here.

All form responses will go to the Raw Form Responses tab automatically. I’ll convert these to a more readable format on the other tabs, but that might take a little time.

[personal profile] kate_nepveu was kind enough to let me copy and modify the template she uses for Yuletide beta offers. Please let me know if there are any issues with the form or the spreadsheet.

Treats! The thing you do when you're finished your assignment or in lieu of it while hoping inspiration will come to you. For Fandom 5k treats go into one of two places:Also as a reminder: if a person has been defaulted on at the deadline (that is, their author does not turn in anything and has not defaulted by the deadline) any treat that is in the Fandom 5k collection will become their assignment. Please keep this in mind!

We are also reposting Pinch Hit 4, which has some new fandoms added to it! Please take a look and see if you could write any of these prompts! If you are interested, please comment to this post with your AO3 name. All comments are screened.

Matching is done and assignments are out! We did not have anyone who was asked to add a fandom and we were able to match on fandoms, characters/ships, and genre tags. Congratulations everyone! If there is a problem with your assignment, please let us know at fandom5kmod@gmail.com. We can't fix your problem if we don't know what it is!

The export.csv function on AO3 is down and thus making creating a spreadsheet difficult, so we have created the next best thing: a text file of all requests. If some keen person would like to turn this into a spreadsheet, let us know! Otherwise we'll upload a spreadsheet when the .csv downloader function comes back to us.

Over the weekend the treats collection will open up for treats that are less than 5k! Please keep an eye out for that post, as there are many exciting prompts waiting to be filled.

We do have seven initial pinch hits. These are not due to anyone defaulting but instead due to the matching algorithm. If you are interested in claiming these, please comment to this post with the pinch hit you wish to claim and your AO3 name. All comments are screened!

Signups will close on 28 February at 11:59 PM, EST. Here is a countdown!

At that point, we’ll start matching. Hopefully that won’t take long, but if there are any unmatchable offers, we may need some time to hear back from those people. We’ll send out assignments by 3 March at the latest.

Here is the signup form, and here is the full list of requests. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

We’re about halfway through signups! They will close on 28 February at 11:59 PM, EST. Here is a countdown!

You can see all the requests in detail here, or you can view a summary of the offered and requested fandoms.

If, when signups close, none of your offers match any of the requests, we’ll contact you by email and ask you to add fandoms or characters/relationships to your offer. You can keep an eye on the requests to be sure you’re matchable.

If you’ve written a letter and would like to link it here, you can do that here! Please comment with your AO3 name and a list of the fandoms you’re requesting.

Signups are open here! Go forth and request fic!

As you do, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the rules and the FAQ. Please let us know if they need any clarification. You can comment here or shoot us an email if you have any questions.

There are more details at the FAQ, but here are the basics:

You’ll request between 4 and 10 fandoms, with between 1 and 20 characters or relationships and between 3 and 20 genre tags per fandom.

You’ll offer between 5 and 10 fandoms, with between 1 and 20 characters or relationships and 3 and 20 genre tags per fandom.

Characters and relationships will both be in the Characters field, and you’ll receive a story focused on any one of the items you select in that field.

If you'd like a story about Character A, select Character A in this field. If you'd like a story about either Character A or Character B, select Character A, then select Character B.

If you'd like a story about Character A and Character B in a romantic or sexual relationship, select Group: Character A/Character B. If you'd like a story about Character A and Character B in a gen relationship, select Group: Character A & Character B.

You'll be matched to a recipient who requested at least one of your offered fandoms and at least one of the offered characters or relationships in that fandom. However, you can choose to write a story in any one of your recipient’s requested fandoms, focused on any one of the items (character or relationship) they requested for that fandom, even if you didn’t offer it.

The genres in the Additional Tags are intended to give a general sense of what kind of story you’d like to read or write for a given fandom. We’re going to attempt to assign offers and requests that share a genre. If that results in too many initial pinch hits, AO3’s matching code will still prioritize matches by genre.

Here is the full tag set!

Also, could the nominator for Group: Rosa Diaz/Chelsea Peretti please confirm what they mean by this ship? Our understanding is that Chelsea Peretti is the actress for Gina Linetti on Brooklyn Nine-Nine so we're confused as to what you intend this ship to be. Thank you!

The tag set is here.

In the meantime, we still have questions about the following tags. If these are your nominations, please let us know!

    • Group: John Connor & Kyle Reese
    • Group: John Connor/Skynet
    • Group: Sarah Connor & John Connor & Kyle Reese
  2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel - do you want these fandoms merged or separated?

    • Group: Alec Lightwood/Jace Wayland/Isabelle Lightwood
    • Group: Alec Lightwood/Magnus Bane/Jace Wayland

Let us know if there are any errors in the tag set. If you’re requesting a change to your nominations (for example, you nominated individual characters but intended to nominate a relationship), please include a link to your nominations when you comment.
