And that's all, folks! All author names are now revealed, but you can keep reading, enjoying, and commenting on stories in the archive.

A huge thank you to everyone who signed up, beta read, and pinch hit!

We have reopened both the Fandom 5K collection and Fandom Couch for treats and make-up assignments, and they'll stay open until signups begin next year. Please put all works longer than 5k into the Fandom 5k collection, and works that are not quite 5k into the Fandom Couch collection!

If you defaulted after the no-fault deadline of 1 April but wish to participate in the next round, you'll need to fulfill your original assignment before then. Please drop us an email at fandom5kmod AT gmail when you do. If you're not sure whether this applies to you, please send us an email.

Speaking of--yes, we do plan to run this exchange next year! We welcome your feedback on what went well and what we can improve. You can respond to this survey, leave comments on this post, or send us an email if you'd prefer.

Please note that even if there's general consensus on a suggestion, we may choose not to implement it for a variety of reasons. We will certainly take it into account, though! There are lots of ways you could choose to run an exchange like this. If you're interested in starting up a multifandom longfic exchange of your own, we'd be happy to coordinate schedules and avoid overlap.

We're particularly interested in answers to the following questions:
  1. Were the genre tags generally helpful, counterproductive, or neither?

  2. Was the writing period (about 8 weeks) a good length?

  3. We required requests to specify at least 4 fandoms with 1 character/relationship per fandom, and offers to specify at least 5 fandoms with 1 character/relationship. Would you prefer this or 3 fandoms with 2 characters/relationships for requests, 4 fandoms with 2 characters/relationships for offers?

  4. Would you be interested in offering or requesting art next year? What do you think the equivalent of 5k would be for artwork?

The archives are open!Any issues, shoot us an email at fandom5kmod@gmail.com.

Otherwise, go forth, read, comment, and enjoy!

As of right now, everyone who turned in their assignment should have a gift! I'd like to extend a huge thanks to our heroic pinch hitters. Why not write one of them a treat?

Supposing there are no unexpected roadbumps, this means the archive will go live as scheduled at 11:59 PM EDT on Saturday, 13 May. Here's a countdown to reveals. Gifts will remain anonymous for a week.

If you won't be around to read and comment on your gift shortly after reveals, you can drop your author a note at the Away from Keyboard post.

Finally, treats keep rolling in! You can post treats 5,000 words and up in the main collection and anything up to 4,999 words in Fandom Couch.

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 first post-deadline extension date has passed and we have no pinch hits to send out! There are some people who still have extensions until 6 May, so if you do not have a story after 11:59pm EST on 6 May, you are not out to pinch hit, and you turned in a story, contact us immediately! We cannot stress this enough.

Quick links!

IT'S THE FINAL COUUUUNTDOOOOWN until reveals

If you're likely to be away at around reveals, comment here and let your author know.

Some of our pinch hitters didn't sign up and so aren't getting a gift ... unless you can help!

And Fandom Couch, the treat archive for when you really love a prompt enough to write an additional story but it's not quite 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!

We are 24 hours away from the deadline! All stories are due at 11:59pm EDT on Saturday 29 April, unless you have an extension approved in advance. What time is that for me?

Shortly after the deadline the collection will close briefly. This is to allow us to manually default people and also to give us time to check the collection to make sure that there are no obvious placeholders. We will reopen the collection once we have done the check, and will let you know when that is done along with any post-deadline pinch hits.

If you're finished and looking for write more, consider a treat! Please also consider treating the pinch
hitters who didn't sign up. If you are one of those pinch hitters, please feel free to leave requests for treats at this post.

Any queries, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us either here or at fandom5kmod@gmail.com!

Good luck!

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!

There's just over a day to go! The check-in period ends at 11:59 PM EDT on Saturday, 8 April. Here's a countdown.

Remember that if you do not check in, you'll be defaulted automatically. We're waiting to hear from about 21 people.

To check in, please leave a comment at this post.

If you need to get in touch with us via email, we're 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.
