 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.

[community profile] sutcliff_swap works are due tomorrow (Friday, June 3). Post them here on AO3.

Treats can be posted until June 9.

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.

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.

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.

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!
