At this point, we are waiting on only eight stories, and those are all the post-deadline pinch hits. Those pinch hits are due on 10 May at 11:59 PM EDT.

Supposing everyone has a gift at that time, the archive will go live at or soon after 13 May at 11:59 PM EDT. Here's a countdown! If there's a delay, we'll do our best to keep you informed.

Treats for pinch hitters

Don't forget about Fandom Couch, the collection for any treats under 5K!

The collection is scheduled to be revealed on Saturday, 13 May, at 11:59 PM EDT! What time is that for me?

We may delay reveals if anyone still does not have a gift at that time, but the archive will not open before 13 May.

If you think you'll be away from your computer or otherwise unable to read and comment on your gift shortly after the archive opens, you can leave a comment here so your writer isn't left in suspense. Please include your AO3 name so they know who you are!

The post-deadline pinch hit post is here.

Our pinch hitters are fabulous--why not write one of them a treat?

Writing something a little shorter? Treats under 5,000 words go in Fandom Couch

And finally, a countdown to reveals!

The deadline has passed! We have just now checked the archive for really obvious placeholders, and the collection should now be open again for people to upload.

If you don't have a story, there are a number of potential explanations
  • You defaulted and your author defaulted on you;
  • Your author has an extension. Please check in on 3 May, as that is when the vast majority of extensions are to;
  • You are a pinch hit;
  • Something really weird has gone on and you need to contact us at fandom5kmod[at]gmail immediately.

Feel free to shoot us an email if you want to know whether your author has an extension - there are quite a few this time around!

Now, for pinch hits! These are due at 11:59pm on 10 May. Please comment with the number of the pinch hit or the recipient's AO3 name, as well as your AO3 name if you wish to claim one of them. Comments are screened!

  • Anyone who is not signed up for the exchange but took a pinch hit is welcome to leave requests for treats at this post.

As always, please contact us here or at fandom5kmod@gmail.com with any questions.

These pinch hits are also due on 29 April. If any of them catch your eye, please comment with the number of the pinch hit you're claiming and your AO3 name. All comments on this post are screened. Thank you to all our pinch hitters!

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.

As a general reminder, the deadline to default without penalty is 1 April. On 2 April, we'll put up a check-in post where we'll ask you to confirm that you're still committed to the exchange, and that mandatory check-in will run until 8 April. Assignments are due on 29 April.

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!
