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.

Just a reminder that the deadline for your fanworks is Monday, June 3. Functionally, this means whenever I wake up on June 4, so just use midnight in your timezone as the deadline. Please post your fanwork to the 2013 collection using the "Post to Collection" button, being sure to fill in your assigned or treat recipient. If you have not posted to AO3 before and have trouble, send me a PM or an email (caerfyrddin AT gmail DOT com) and I'll dig up a tutorial.

The archive will open June 10, giving us all a week for pinch hits if we need them, and final edits and treats if you're so inclined.

If you have made a pinch hit, please comment to this post with a few requests--we'd like to make sure our pinch hitters have a treat or two for their awesome work!

I failed to completely edit last year's assignment letters, so they have an INCORRECT deadline. If you need to check the exchange schedule and due date, please refer to the sticky post at the top of the comm.

Assignments are due June 3, 2013.

Apologies for my tardiness in posting this and getting the rules updated. I am a fail!mod. Working on it now, promotional banners soon.

1. Schedule and Pinch-Hitting

The schedule for Sutcliff Swap 2013 has been determined as follows:

Signups: April 8-14
Matching and assignments go out: April 22 (or earlier)
Creation period: April 22-June 3
Default deadline: May 20
Fanwork deadline: June 3
Pinch hit deadline: June 9
Archive opens: June 10

There will be no creator reveal, since per the result of the community polls we have decided to open the collection with names attached. This also means artists will be responsible for their own image hosting.

After May 26, [personal profile] isis will be unable to answer emails, so all mod questions after that point should be addressed to [personal profile] carmarthen (caerfyrddin AT gmail DOT com), who will also be handling pinch hit coordination this year.

Additional Swap updates under the cut )

[personal profile] carmarthen and I are currently in the planning stage for Sutcliff Swap 2013. Based on the wrap-up poll from last year (and our own schedules) we are planning to move the Swap earlier in the year; we also have a few other changes we'd like input on.

Please only vote if you are thinking about participating this year. (You can participate even if you're only familiar with a single Sutcliff book!) This poll is being posted to both LJ and DW; please vote at only one site.

For simplicity, the full schedule options are not listed in the poll, but each assumes one week for sign-ups, with assignments made one week later; six weeks for creating artwork or a 1000-word minimum story, and one week between due date and archive opening in order to allow time for pinch hitters. Two weeks separate each option. If none of these work for you, or if you'd like to suggest something else, feel free to comment with your restrictions and preferences. Here are the full schedule options:

Sign up Feb 25-Mar 3, assignments by Mar 11, due April 22th, open April 29th
Sign up Mar 11-Mar 17, assignments by Mar 25, due May 6, open May 13th
Sign up Mar 25-Mar 31, assignments by Apr 8, due May 20th, open May 27th (or 28th, as 27th is Memorial day)
Sign up Apr 8-14, assignments by Apr 22, due June 3, open June 10

Please make your choices before February 3.

I have no preference among the choices I picked in question 1.

We are leaning toward having works revealed with creator names, rather than the week-long anonymity period we had before. Yes/No/Don't care?

Yes, reveal works with creator names

No, keep works anonymous for one week

I don't care

We would like to make it easy for participants to write treats if they choose. We will have publicly posted 'dear creator' letters linked from a central place. Would you also like us to make signups public (as Yuletide does) or prefer to keep them private?

1. Signups for [community profile] sutcliff_swap close Friday, June 15! This is your chance to change your signup if you wish to do so, or sign up if you haven't already.



2. The Beta Post (on LJ; DW users can use OpenID or anonymous commenting) is no longer a placeholder! If you're interested in betaing fic and/or art for [community profile] sutcliff_swap, this is the place to let people know. You do not have to be a participant in the exchange.

3. Since it's sort of buried in the policies post, no, you do not have to be a participant in the exchange to be a pinch hitter--and since this is a small multifandom exchange with many out of print sources, the more potential pinch hitters, the better.

Signing up to pinch hit does not commit you to anything--it's just an indication of interest.

If you are not a participant but are interested in pinch-hitting, please email [personal profile] isis at isiscolo AT gmail DOT com with the following information:

  • your AO3 user name

  • fandoms/character restrictions

  • whether you can create fiction, art, or both


Okay, I think that's it. Signups are looking awesome and we're really excited--thank you to everyone who's decided to participate!

[personal profile] carmarthen
Sutcliff Swap is a multifandom exchange for fanfiction and fanart based on the childrens' and adult novels and short stories of British historical fiction author Rosemary Sutcliff. While perhaps best known for her novels of Roman Britain, Sutcliff's works spanned settings from c. 2000-1000 BCE to the 19th century Ottoman Empire.

You can find a list of her works here on DW (LJ mirror post).

(We are not permitting fanworks based on the 2011 movie The Eagle, or on the Eagle of the Ninth radioplay or BBC series, the BBC Blood Feud series, or any other adaptations for this exchange. However, works based on the books Eagle of the Ninth and Blood Feud are extremely welcome.)

This exchange is also for stories set during the canonical era of the source--which means AU from canon events is fine, but please save the modern and science fiction AUs for other venues.

If you do not feel you can sign up for the exchange this year, you can still sign up as a potential pinch hitter, beta someone's art or story, or create treats.
