The collection has been closed and creators have been revealed. If you haven't yet left a comment on your gift, we ask that you take the time to thank your artist or author now.

This wraps us up for the year! We'll be back in May-June of next year for feedback and prep for the next round.

Thanks to all our participants, particularly those who took the time to pinch-hit! See you in 2018!

Last year, for whatever reason, I was in a bad place mentally around this time and I missed Yuletide sign-ups. I was really devastated because I've been participating since (I think) 2008 and that's a long time to commit to an annual thing and then miss it.

What I did last year, and what you can do, is stuff like this:

  • Sign up for the pinch hit list. If an existing writer drops out of the exchange, their assignment will go out as a pinch hit, meaning someone else can offer to write it. There's more about pinch hitting here.
  • Check out the Dear Yuletide Writer letter list for prompts you find appealing, and write a treat (minimum 1000 words) for someone. Can't do 1K? Hit up that treat link and scroll down to Yuletide Madness for details on how to write for that subcollection. Don't feel like clicking through pages of comments? Spreadsheet! Don't feel like searching the spreadsheet? There's an app for that!!! (This is new, I'm so excited.)
  • Not so into writing, but you like betaing and know some rare fandoms? This post has ways you can help out!
  • Not even sure what this whole Yuletide thing is? Check out the 2017 FAQ!

Just so you know -

We have one work in the collection that didn't reveal with the rest. We just tried unrevealing the collection and re-revealing it, so AO3 might send you a second email. Just ignore it!

We're working on solving this issue!

Archive is now OPEN!

Stories and artworks are now visible here. You should receive an email from AO3 with a link to your gift soon, but you can also find it here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/YOUR-USER-NAME-HERE/gifts

Author/artist reveals will happen in exactly ONE WEEK, on October 20 at 12 p.m
. PDT. (What time is that where I live?) We will leave the archive open for submissions so if there are additional treats (of any size), that you would like to post, you may do so during this period. 

Please note that works posted for exchanges tend to get buried when archives go live, as a result of earlier posting dates. We advise that you change your publication date so your work doesn't get lost in the fray. To do so, simply click Edit on your post and scroll down to the Associations heading. Check the box next to 'Set a different publication date' and change it to today's date.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns or the gift you have received goes against the challenge rules, please email us at crossoveringmods@gmail.com and we will handle it as soon as we can.

Thank you everyone for participating and thank you all for your patience!
 We've had more stumbles than we're used to this year, as the whole mod team has had some life events happen that take priority, so we truly appreciate everyone sticking by us!

DEADLINE!

It's officially past midnight in my time zone, so that means all assigned works should be posted and complete! We will be checking works starting now and in the morning and if we find any that are not up to the challenge guidelines, we will be sending out emergency pinch hits. (Boy, we hope not though.)

As long as everything looks a-okay, works will be officially revealed on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT (
Want to know when that is where you are? Or count down to it here!) If you still have treats to post, you may post them until that time.


ONE HOUR LEFT!

There is only ONE HOUR LEFT before all late pinch hits must be complete and posted at AO3. The final deadline is 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 12. (Find out when that is where you live or count down to it here.) 

At that time, we will run a check (to the best of our ability) that all works abide by the challenge rules. 


Our current plan is to reveal works on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT, but in order to that everyone who finished an assignment must have a gift. (If that doesn't come to pass, we will keep you aware as we adjust the reveal time accordingly. (

24 hours left!

There are slightly less than 24 hours left for anyone assigned a late pinch hit to get their works posted! This means every person who created a gift should have a gift in the archive at the time. All works must be posted and complete no later than 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 12. (Find out when that is where you live or count down to it here.) We will check, to the best of our ability, to make sure all works follow the rules of the challenge, so while people may edit their posts at any time, your works MUST be considered complete.

Our current plan is to reveal works on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT, as long as everyone who posted a story or artwork has a gift. (If that doesn't come to pass, we will keep you aware as we adjust accordingly. (Want to know when that is where you are? Or count down to it here!)

HI I'M A COMPLETE MORON WHO SOMEHOW WENT EIGHT MONTHS WITHOUT NOTICING SHE GOT A PERFECT AMAZING FLAWLESS GIFT FROM BURGLEBEZZLEMENT FOR [community profile] chocolateboxcomm

IT'S ELEANOR/CHIDI FROM THE GOOD PLACE AND DID I MENTION IT'S PERFECT AMAZING AND FLAWLESS

The Good Place Is Wherever I’m With You
Chidi and his faux-mate are out in the big park in front of Tahani’s house, reading poetry to one another. Chidi’s on his back with his head in his faux-mate’s lap. Vicky’s looking down at Chidi with a soppy expression on her face, and Chidi looks alarmed. Maybe even vexed.

Just like Vicky, Eleanor thinks. Always overplaying it.
I COULD HAVE BEEN FREAKING OUT AND REREADING THIS ALL THIS TIME nooooooooooo ;_____;

48 hours until archive closes!

There are just about 48 hours left for anyone assigned a late pinch hit to get their works posted! This also means any one with already posted works has the same amount of time to make adjustments or edits to their works. We will be closing the archive promptly at 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 12. (Find out when that is where you live or count down to it here.)

Our current plans is to reveal works on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT, as long as everyone who posted a story or artwork has a gift. (If that doesn't come to pass, we will keep you aware as we adjust accordingly. (Want to know when that is where you are? Or count down to it here!)

We still need a pinch hitter for #12. Generally, we only do posting/claiming at the Google group, but I'm going to go ahead and do it here, too. Comments are screened, so if you want to claim this here, go ahead.
