Sutcliff Swap: A Fanwork Exchange

Signups for this year's Swap begin on April 6th. This means you have three weeks to Read More Sutcliff before things get started!

Squee about your favorite Sutcliff book in the comments here! This is your chance to remind others of that book they'd almost forgotten they'd loved, and inspire them to request or offer fanfiction or fanart for it. And if a book you haven't read sounds good to you, you can read it before sign-ups, and maybe you'll be inspired to request or offer for it.

We're doing this on Dreamwidth only to consolidate discussion. Feel free to start a thread about your favorite book or three; please put the name of the book in the subject line. If you don't have a Dreamwidth login, you can use OpenID or comment anonymously. Please join in, tell us about your favorite Sutcliff books, and start thinking about what you might want to request and offer for the Sutcliff Swap!

Another fun Swap has come and gone--if you're like me, you'll be spending the next few days working your way through all the gloriousness that is this year's collection. Clearly, this was The Year of Aunt Honoria--a well-deserved honor, I think.

I want to thank my co-mod, vingtieme, for all her hard work and support. I also want to thank carmarthen and isiscolo for answering my many questions. Next year, I will know what I'm doing and will leave you in peace. Special thanks to bunn for the pinch hit. And a big thank you to all participants for making the Swap such a success and for making this fandom in general such a lovely place.

Until next year!

We're wrapping up a few last things and should be on track to open the collection sometime tomorrow! We ended up with a diverse selection drawn from nine different canons, although one character in particular stole the spotlight this year. You can ponder who that may be and anticipate the excellent fic and artwork that will soon be revealed. :)

[personal profile] riventhorn
A reminder that tomorrow is the deadline for sutcliff_swap. A number of works have already been posted and they all look awesome and it is very exciting! After tomorrow, we will see if we need to call in any pinch hits. The collection will also remain open for anyone who wants to post treats. If all goes well, works will be revealed on June 9.
riventhorn: (Default)
[personal profile] riventhorn
A reminder that fanworks are due on June 2, one week from today. If you're doing a pinch hit, the deadline for that is June 8. Works should be posted to the 2014 collection on AO3.

If you're doing treats, those can also be posted up until June 8, but please make sure that your assignment has been posted by June 2.

We hope everyone is having fun with their assignments, but just a friendly reminder 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 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 at riventhorn AT gmail DOT 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.

We hope your works are coming along smoothly! Here are a few notices as we move closer to the deadline.

How To Post

When you are ready, you can post your work to the 2014 collection on AO3. Use the "Post to Collection" button, being sure to fill in your assigned recipient. As with last year, 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 2014 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 next Monday, May 19.

A reminder that signups close at midnight tomorrow. I won't actually close the form until Monday, so just use midnight Sunday in whatever your timezone is as the deadline. Assignments will be emailed on or before April 21.

You can access the signup form here: Signup Here

Signups are open and will remain open until April 13

A few things to remember:

1. You only need to be able to offer one source, so if all you've read is The Eagle of the Ninth, you can still participate. Remember that requests based on media inspired by Sutcliff novels, such as the movie The Eagle, are not allowed in this exchange.

2. This is a no-changed-setting AU exchange, which means no modern/space/etc. However, canon-divergence AUs (e.g. changed events, fix-it fic) and/or AUs that add fantasy or supernatural elements to the canon setting (e.g. ghosts, werewolves) are permitted. So if you say "no AUs" in your signup form, it will be assumed that you mean no canon-divergence AUs and want the gift to stick to canon.

2. "Underage" means different things in different modern jurisdictions, and many Sutcliff women canonically marry before age 18, or even before 16; a liberal interpretation of "no underage" would exclude canon Marcus/Cottia, for example. If you state that you do not want underage, please specify what age you mean. Also, if you are uncomfortable writing explicit sex involving a teenaged character, but don't mind writing domestic marriage fic or sub-teen-rated fic, this would be helpful to know for matching purposes.

3. Please only request up to three characters per request (the only exception would be if you want a romantic poly relationship with more than three characters). You may put as many optional characters and pairings as you like in the optional details, but for matching, it helps us if we know which character(s) or pairings you are primarily interested in.

I am happy to announce that myself and the lovely [personal profile] vingtieme have taken over as mods for the Swap from the hard working and awesome [personal profile] carmarthen and [profile] isiscolo. We are planning to run the Swap with basically the same format and schedule as last year. We will get around to doing rules, pimping banners, comm updates, and schedules soon, but I wanted to let everyone know the basic time frame:

April 7: Signups open
April 21: Assignments go out
June 2: Fanworks due
June 9: Archive opens

We hope many of you will be participating again this year and that we get some new people, too!

Thank you again to all of the writers and artists who participated in 2012 and 2013 to make Sutcliff Swap a success! At this point, both Carmarthen and Isis are ready to move on to other projects.

We've talked to a few people about potentially taking over the exchange if there's interest in keeping it running, possibly as an every-other-year event--but that would be up to the new mod(s) and community.

If you might be interested in taking over as a moderator in the future, please let us know by email to caerfyrddin AT gmail DOT com and isiscolo AT gmail DOT com.

And as always, if you haven't had enough Sutcliff fic this year, there's always the [community profile] yuletide rare fandom exchange in December!
