Sutcliff Swap on Dreamwidth

 A few things:

1. [community profile] sutcliff_swap will be on hiatus this year. I have a lot of stuff going on during the timeframe when we usually run the fest (finishing my PhD, graduating, trying to find a job, etc), and I'm not exactly sure when things will settle down. I definitely intend to bring it back next year, provided I have, indeed, found a job and am not wandering homeless in the wilderness. That being said, I am not proprietary about swap at all--if there is someone who would like to mod the fest this year, let me know, and I can give you access to everything.

2. Given the new user agreement required by Livejournal, I am making the executive decision to stop using the lj comm [livejournal.com profile] sutcliff_swap . I'm not going to delete the comm, but I will stop posting to it, and all future fests will be run strictly from the Dreamwidth comm. Again, if anyone has strong objections to this and wants to take over the lj comm, we can work that out.

3. Even if swap isn't running this year, [personal profile] chantefable is running a monthly Sutcliff fanmedia challenge over on [community profile] sutcliff_space ! It is very low pressure--each month, prompts are posted (really awesome prompts!), and past months remain open, so there isn't a strict time limit. Go check out this month's prompts.

A reminder that fanworks are due on June 3, one week from today. If you are not going to be able to finish your piece in time, please let us know ASAP by commenting on this post or emailing me at riventhorn[at]gmail.com. Works should be posted to the 2016 Collection on AO3. If you have any questions about how to post, please let us know.

If you're doing treats, those can also be posted up until June 10, but please make sure that your assignment has been posted by June 3.

We're very excited to see everyone's creations!

If you need to default from Sutcliff Swap for any reason, the last day for defaulting and being able to participate next year without penalty is today. You can still default after today, but you may have to write a treat or complete your assignment later to be eligible to participate next year.

To default, simply email me (riventhorn[at]gmail.com.) You don't need to give a reason, but please list what pseudonym you signed up under. If you default but end up finishing your assignment, you are welcome and encouraged to post it to the collection anyway.

If for some reason you find you need to default after today, the more advance warning you can give us to find a pinch hitter, the better. We would prefer you default and find you can finish your assignment after all than wait until the last minute to default.

How To Post

When you are ready, you can post your work to the 2016 Collection on AO3. Use the "Post to Collection" button, being sure to fill in your assigned recipient. As with previous years, works will not be anonymous once the collection opens; creators will be revealed immediately. If you have not posted to AO3 before and have trouble, send me a PM or an email at riventhorn AT gmail DOT com.


Treats

A treat is any story or piece of artwork not created for your assignment. You can create extra things for your recipient or treats for people who are not your recipient. People who have not officially signed up as participants are also welcome to make treats if they find prompts inspiring. There is not an obligation to create treats; it's only if you want to.

Unlike official assignments, there is no minimum requirements for treats: ficlets under 1000 words and quick sketches are both fine!

To post a treat, simply post your story or artwork to the 2016 collection as you would for your assignment, and fill in the pseudonym of the person the treat is for. It's nice if you indicate in tags or notes that it's a treat.

We have put together a spreadsheet listing everyone's requests for treat purposes.


Also, a reminder that the default deadline is May 20.

Assignments have been sent out. If you have not done so already, please reply to the email so that we know you received your assignment. If you have not received your assignment, email me at riventhorn[at]gmail.com.

We have a wide range of requested canons, so it should be a great fest!

Following are the links to all the Dear Creator letters. If your letter is still a placeholder, now would be a good time to update it!

If you have not written a letter and decide you would like to, please leave a link in the comments on either the LJ or DW post and we'll update the lists. Prompts will be revealed for treat purposes soon.

[community profile] sutcliff_swap  is fast approaching and so it seemed like the right time to host a little discussion and writing/drawing warm-up to get in the proper Sutcliffian mood.

The discussion part: List your two favorite Sutcliff characters and tell why they're you're favorites (even if you've only read one book, pick your two favorites from there!) (and okay, ngl, I chose this topic in part so I can talk about Justinius from Outcast).

The writing/drawing warm-up: As we all know, nature porn is a substantial element of any Sutcliff novel with many eloquent descriptions of geese, marshes, heather, and what have you. So the challenge--for writers, go out and take a photo of a piece of nature (and it can have human elements in it--I am all about demolishing the notion that humans cannot be a part of nature) and then write a few sentences of nature porn to describe it. You could use a pre-existing photo too or a google image, whatever. Artists--sketch a little piece of nature porn. It could be based on a photo, if you want? (sorry, I have a harder time devising challenges for artists.)

You can do the discussion part and not the nature porn or vice versa. Or discuss something completely different if you want. This post is mirrored on http://sutcliff-swap.livejournal.com/

The year was still young, and the little wind blew chill through the long heather, smelling wonderfully of bog and thin sunshine, and a little of the snow that still dappled the north-eastern crests of the high fells; and all around them the curlews were crying, filling all the world with their wild bubbling music.

We are on track to open the collection tomorrow. Unlike last year, no one character or canon has dominated the field. It's a very diverse group, including some from a source that has never had anything written for it (that shows up on AO3, at any rate). So get ready to enjoy this year's crop of excellent-as-always fic and art!

Tomorrow, June 1st, is the deadline for posting your Sutcliff Swap assignment. Works should be posted to the 2015 Collection on AO3 - don't forget to fill in the name of your recipient. If you have any questions about how to post, please email either of the mods (riventhorn or isiscolo) @gmail.com.

If you're doing treats, those can be posted up until June 7 (and the collection will remain open for treat posting), but please make sure that your assignment has been posted by tomorrow. In practical terms, this means when I wake up on Tuesday morning, typically 6 am MDT, I will check for missing assignments and start looking for pinch hitters if needed. If all goes well, works will be revealed on June 8th.

We hope everyone is having fun with their assignments, which are due June 1st - and there's already one work in the archive, yay!

This is to remind you that if you need to default from Sutcliff Swap for any reason, the last day for defaulting and being able to participate next year without penalty is Monday, May 18th. You can still default after Monday, but you may have to write a treat or complete your assignment later to be eligible to participate next year.

To default, simply email either of the mods (riventhorn or isiscolo) @gmail.com. You don't need to give a reason, but please list what pseudonym you signed up under. If you default but end up finishing your assignment, you are welcome and encouraged to post it to the collection anyway.

I'll post a second reminder on Monday.
