TARA: of course you want to bring your mother back, and I wish we could, but it's not possible.

DAWN: Why? You guys do magic for all kinds of things.

WILLOW: We do, but...

TARA: This is different. Magic can't be used to alter the natural order of things.

DAWN: But all you do is mess with the natural order of things. You make things float & dissappear and...

TARA: But we don't mess with life and death. Dawn.. I know how bad you hurt...

DAWN: You don't. They put her in the ground!

Sign-up period EXTENDED!

[personal profile] weasleytook posting in [community profile] crossovering
We understand that sign-ups are complex (particularly in this exchange) and many participants have more time to complete a sign-up on the weekend. Because of that, we have decided to extend sign-ups through the weekend. 

So with that in mind, your new sign-up deadline is: Sunday, July 30 at 12 (noon) p.m. PDT. (
Countdown here!)

We still plan on sending out assignments on the 30th, as planned. However, if matching proves difficult, we will adjust the schedule accordingly. Everyone will still get the 2 month window to create their assignments, even if we have to shift dates a little.

If there's a tax loophole that lets middle aged white women pay their taxes with explicit sex fics, I'm owed one hell of a refund.

New Rule updates:
-All US Politics must stick to one thread.
-For a wide variety of reasons, no deliberate variant fonts, no emoji in thread titles. You can use them in the comment, but not in the title.

new Penric impending

Lois McMaster Bujold says, here:

https://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_posts/15463253-new-penric-impending

I am pleased to report that I have finished the first draft of a new Penric & Desdemona novella. (For that peculiar value of "finished" that means, "still dinking till it's pulled from the writer's twitchy hands.")

Title will be "Penric's Fox"

Length, at this moment, is around 37,400 words. It is more-or-less a sequel to "Penric and the Shaman", taking place about eight or nine months after that story.

Final editing and formatting, arranging for cover art to send it out into the world nicely dressed, etc., will take some unknown amount of time and eyeball-endurance, but e-pub will likely happen in August.

My computer file tells me I started typing the opening on March 3rd, but of course there was lead-up to that. It is, in general, hard to tell or remember when a project segues over from "notion" to "planning", although the notion had been with me for some time. Story notions are like a collection of vaguely related objects rattling around in a box; planning starts when some key object that connects them all drops in, and things suddenly get interesting.

Ta, L.

One week to deadline!

A quick reminder: assignments are due Monday 31 July at 23:59 UTC! That's a little over one week from now. View the countdown here.

There are no outstanding pinch hits (recent defaults following the last pinch hit post have involved double-assigned recipients). I'll post any more on the community as any defaults come in.

To post your assignment: navigate to your AO3 dashboard, select Sign-ups in the menu on the left, locate your Rare Male Slash Exchange assignment and click Fulfill. That will take you to a posting page that should have all of your recipient's details and the exchange name pre-selected.

To post a treat: navigate to the Rare Male Slash Exchange AO3 page here and click the Post to Collection button in the top right corner. You will need to add your treat recipient's name in the field marked "Gift this work to" - just be sure it's the right username!

To default: that's absolutely fine - sometimes that happens! Just navigate to your AO3 dashboard, select Sign-ups, locate your Rare Male Slash Exchange assignment and click Default. I can then find a pinch-hitter for your recipient.

I hope your assignments are going well! If you have any questions about the exchange, please feel free to ask. You can either comment on this post (anon is on), or email rareslashexmod@gmail.com. If you have questions for your recipient, please email me.

Hey, guys! Signups close in a little under 4 days @ 11:55 PM PDT on Thursday, July 27. Here's a countdown.

Signups are now closing at 12:00 PM PDT on Sunday, July 30th.

As a reminder, if you choose more than 2 fandoms for a single request/offer, you can match on any combination of those fandoms. We strongly encourage you to spread out your prompts and other optional details across all those possible combinations. We've seen a few signups with holes in those areas.

We also wanted to remind everyone that you can choose only 2 fandoms per request/offer. So if you'd like to see Pacific Rim crossed with Alias OR Stranger Things, but you aren't interested in a crossover between Alias and Stranger Things, you should put Pacific Rim/Alias in one request and Pacific Rim/Stranger Things in another request.

All of that said, optional details are ultimately a courtesy to your artist or author. We strongly encourage the use of optional details/prompts, particularly in an exchange like this one, but we can't force you to use them. If you choose not to leave optional details for a particular crossover match, your artist or author will be free to create whatever they want, so long as they mind your DNWs.

    For a while I thought the Photobucket purge wouldn't apply to us... somehow... magically. But I'm afraid it did.

    Prompted by a message from [personal profile] tidal_race this morning I've downloaded and re-uploaded all of the original comm banners. I used Imgur. No idea whether this is going to stay long-term, but it's worth a shot.

    I've also re-uploaded the bases, if you want to do something new - like this!



    Unconventional Courtship opens on the 18th August (less than a month!)

    2017: ARTIST CLAIMS!

    Jul. 22nd, 2017 11:20 pm
    red_b_rackham: (gi epic)
    [personal profile] red_b_rackham posting in [community profile] het_bigbang
    IT’S ART TIME!!


    To claim a story you want to do art for, please drop a comment below with:

    FIRST CHOICE – Story Number: #
    SECOND CHOICE – Story Number: #
    Email Address:

    Remember: first come, first serve!! (*Next year, we will try out the Preview Day thing.)

    Sign ups for artists as well as this claim post will remain open until all fanfics get claimed! Get all your friends out to come take on some art! If you're willing to sign up as a Pinch Hit Artist, go here.

    After you have claimed your story, you will receive an email from the mods with your writer's name & info, and the snippets they provided (it may not be immediate, but it should be within 24-48 hours). Authors: you will receive an email with your artist’s information once your fic has been claimed. Artists and authors are not required to chat, but it’s highly encouraged that you work with each other in whatever manner works for both of you. :)

    What are the requirements for art?
    You can make whatever kind of art you feel like, in whichever medium. Drawing, painting, digital, manips, vids, fanmix, fabric, mixed media, anything you can think of. We just ask that you put some time and genuine effort into it, as our authors have put major effort into their story. You are required to make a minimum of ONE piece of art for the story you claim. MORE IS BETTER. We love more! We want more! But, based on feedback from prior year’s artists, we only have a requirement of one piece of artwork.

    Make it nice, put some serious effort into it! :)

    (more questions about Art and Claims and stuff? Check out our FAQ.)

    ~

    CLAIMS:

    For the first round of claims, please only choose ONE story to do. We will shortly open it up to a second round, where you may claim a second and third fic if you so wish. If you’re super ambitious and desperately want to do more than three, talk to the mods and/or leave a comment and we’ll see what we can do - you must complete what you claim, however, if at all possible. Trying to find back-up artists is a nightmare - please don’t make us do it. ;) And a reminder that no extensions will be granted. Artists, if you have the time, please consider also signing up to be a pinch hit artist in the event someone has to drop out last minute.

    Art and Fics Due - August 26th, 11:59 PM (Midnight) PST (here is a timezone converter.)

    The following are all listed alphabetically by first fandom (i.e. in an Supernatural/Avengers crossover, it will only be listed under Supernatural).

    go forth and claim! )

    2017: Pinch Hit Artist Sign Ups

    red_b_rackham: (dean)
    [personal profile] red_b_rackham posting in [community profile] het_bigbang

    How does this work?
    What's going to happen is that when we have artist drop out in August, we'll send out an email to the artists who are willing to pinch hit - the means creating art, probably fast or very fast, depending on how late the original dropped out. All the artists who are interested and wiling will quickly email back if they can take on the project - first come, first serve. They will receive the relevant information (snippets, author contact, etc).

    What do I have to do for art?
    Check the original Artist Sign Up post for all the information. If you are interested in pinch hitting, sign up on THIS POST.

    What's the timeline like on these?
    It will depend on when the original artist drops. For example, if they drop in early August, then you'll basically have the whole month. But if they drop at the end of August, you may only have a few days. While we are taking a hard stance on no extensions, the mods will work closely with our Amazing Pinch Hitting Artists to ensure the deadline is doable (ex. if we lose an artist on Submission Day, the mods will of course give the pinch hitter who scoops their fic a few days to complete the art.) We will talk timeline when (and if) we end up needing to send Pinch Hit art emails.

    We'll need the following info from you:

    I have read the sign-up rules and the FAQ post: Y/N
    LJ and/or DW Name:
    AO3 Name:
    Email:

    To sign up as a pinch hitting artist, copy and paste the text below into a new comment and fill in the lines.



    Artists and Non-Artists: please spread the word! We need LOTS of artists for our beautiful authors, so tell your arty friends, link them here, drag them kicking and screaming. ;D
