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 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!


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 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!

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