Feedback and a couple changes for next year

We've had a few people ask about feedback. We're always open to it. However, while we will take it into consideration, we can't guarantee any changes will be made based on it.

Starting next year, we will allow real person fiction (RPF) to be nominated with the following caveats:
1.) Nominated characters must be 18 or older.
2.) Living non-famous persons may not be nominated (for example, someone's wife or child).

Starting next year, we will allow crossovers to be nominated.

If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave them here. All comments will be screened. If you have something that requires a response, please send us an email at

Final Reveals

Creators have been revealed on both collections! Thank you to everyone who participated this year!


Stories/art are now visible here at the main collection and here at the treat collection! As a reminder, the treat collection will remain open to new posts, so please continue treating. We'd like to extend a big thanks to everyone who has participated and especially all of our pinch hitters.

ETA: Please give the site a few minutes. It seems it's being slow in revealing.

Reveals incoming

Works will be revealed in approximately 15 minutes. If you need to make any last minute edits, now is the time.

Pinch Hits

The deadline has passed, and the (hopefully) final batch of pinch hits have gone out here. We're currently seeking 15 and 19-27. The due date for these will be Sunday by 3pm eastern US time.

The mods have to go to bed now, so we won't be able to respond to claims until the morning, but please feel free to start writing/drawing even if you do not hear back from us right away. Also please remember that the archive will not go live until everyone has something, so if you see a lingering pinch hit and know someone who might be able to create something for it, please point it out to them. Thank you!

Deadline Approaching

Assignments are due in less than 3 hours. (What time is that for me?) Again please double check that your story is over the minimum wordcount and not full of random placeholder text by this time.

Also we're currently seeking pinch hit 15 and 18 here. Thank you.

Assignments Due Tomorrow Night

Assignments are due tomorrow night by 11:59pm eastern US time. (What time is that for me?) The exception to this is pinch hits that went out after the 12th, which are due by 3pm on Sunday. All fiction must be over 1000 words and not just full of random placeholder text by this time. You are welcome to continue editing after the deadline. Assignments that are not in by this time will go out to the pinch hit list.

For those interested, the treat collection is located here.

Pinch Hits

We're currently seeking 15 and 18 here. Thank you.

A pinch hit and approaching due date

We currently have one unassigned pinch hit. Please visit the group to view it.

This is also a reminder that your assignments are due on the 15th which is approximately a week and a half away. If you think you are going to drop, we ask that you do so soon rather than later. Thank you.
