I know I have been spamming this community today, but at least this is a post you guys actually wanted to see.  The archive is live, with 168 stories in 184 fandoms.

We still have one lingering pinch that we're waiting on that was picked up late, so if you want to write some treats for them, the details are here.

Go forth and read, feedback, and rec.  :)

Archive will go live in a little over half an hour. While we wait for that, we still have one person without a story.  If you can do any of their prompts or write them treats, it would be greatly appreciated!  There are some popular tv fandoms here, so please, give them a look.

liliaeth - In the Flesh, Warm Bodies, Supernatural, Grimm, Teen WolfCollapse )

We'll post here again once the archive goes live.  Almost there!

People without stories.

As of now, there are still some people who have written stories who have no stories for them in the archive.   I'm posting details for their prompts.  If you have any of these people, turn in your stories ASAP.  If you can write anything for these people, it would bring us that much closer to the archive opening.

Betony - 12th Century CE RPF, Gyeongseong Scandal | Capital Scandal, Much Ado About Nothing, Perilous Gard, The Squire's TalesCollapse )

liliaeth - In the Flesh, Warm Bodies, Supernatural, Grimm, Teen WolfCollapse )

LittleRaven - Romeo x Juliet, Once Upon a time (TV), Spellsong Cycle - L.E. Modesitt Jr., Xena: Warrior PrincessCollapse )

prozacpark - Pretty Little Liars, Dragon Age: All Media Types, Pretty Little Liars/Twin Peaks CrossoverCollapse )


We'll go live as soon as the first three people on that list have stories, or at midnight, whichever comes first.

Barring any last minute disastaers, the archive should open tonight. We'll post an hour warning here.

IMPORTANT. IF YOU UPLOADED YOUR STORY AS A DRAFT, EVEN IF IT IS APPROVED, IT WILL NOT SHOW UP IN THE ARCHIVE AND WILL RESULT IN YOU BEING BANNED, GENERATING A PINCH HIT FOR YOUR RECIP AND SOME VERY VERY STRESSED OUT MODS.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR STORIES.

All pinches have been claimed! If we remain on schedule, the archive should open late May 10th/early May 11th, so make damn sure any edits/finishing touches are done by then.

If, for any reason, you feel you may be delayed for your extension/pinch hit please email as soon as possible. No surprises are good surprises!

OH MY GOODNESS I AM SO EXCITED!

Remaining are pinch hits ##19 and #20. Not bad!

If you can't do a full pinch, or just can't write in these fandoms, don't forget you can pass the hours waiting for the archive to open by writing treats for anyone!

Here are the pinches. Please email aphrodite.mine at gmail dot com with the number of pinch you want, your AO3 account, and the date by which you can likely have the story completed & posted.

#19 - Samurai Flamenco, Shoujo Kakumei Utena | Revoltionary Girl Utena, Neon Genesis Evangelion

#20 - In the Flesh, Warm Bodies, Supernatural, Grimm, Teen Wolf

Status update: pinch hits and archive
by i'm a modern girl (aphrodite_mine)
at May 5th, 2014 (10:30 pm)

There were... quite a few last minute defaulters/no-call-no-shows, so we have a series of pinch hits going out. I'm actually sending them out right before I go to bed, so don't expect a reply until around 10AM CST tomorrow (assuming my phone email works while I'm on break).

After 24 hours (tomorrow at this time), I'll post any unclaimed pinches here for the taking.

--

If you have uploaded your story (THANK YOU) here's a short list of things to consider:
-- the archive will go live no earlier than, but possibly ON May 10th. Any edits/beta work/massive overhauls should be complete AS FAR AHEAD OF THAT DATE AS POSSIBLE to avoid an incomplete/sloppy story going live. Think how you would feel if your gift ended mid-sentence! We *will* post here a few hours before hitting go, but that won't give you much time even IF you happen to be watching your LJ feed.
-- do you have your story saved as a Draft, rather than Published? CHANGE IT. Your recipient will NOT be able to read your fic if it isn't published! You will be counted as a defaulter and we'll need a last-last minute pinch. Please don't do that -- your fic is ALREADY UP!

If you were granted an extension/have a later due date for a pinch, these notes are for you:
-- please (PRETTY PLEASE) keep me (aphrodite.mine at gmail dot com) updated on your progress. If you think you may need another day, LET ME KNOW. If you come down with the stomach flu and won't be able to finish, LET ME KNOW. The sooner we know of issues, the sooner we can fix them.
-- If it means a story for everyone, we will delay opening the archive. But remember, EVERYONE will be waiting, even you. So take a break to walk around the house, eat a protein bar, and power write! (Kidding, I'm kidding. But also not.)

If you still need a beta and can't find one elsewhere, please email me! I will send the request out to our beta volunteers, and even read it over for you if there's no response!

--

In summation, take a moment to double-check that your story is 100% a-okay, have a great night, and start counting down to a beautiful archive full of stories about rarewomen of all sorts!

Just a friendly reminder that I'll be closing the archive for uploading before going to bed in a little over an hour, at 4 am CST.

So if you're waiting for last minute beta, making edits, rushing to finish, keep that in mind.

Deadline extended by a few hours.

at May 4th, 2014 (12:24 pm)

Just a reminder that all stories are due tonight.  The initial deadline was midnight tonight, but I'll be up till about 4 am (CST), and will close the archive at that time.   SO you'll have a few extra hours to write, if you need them.

If you emailed us in the last few days and haven't heard back from us, we will get back to you tonight before the deadline.  At least one of your mods is also hiding under a rock, trying to finish the story on time.  But all will be resolved tonight.  :)

ETA:  If your story is uploaded as a draft, we will not be approving it.  So make sure it's the final version (and doesn't say draft next to it), please.  :)
