Thank you, pinch hitters!

Treats and challenges are still going on! (If someone wanted to write Bail and Thrawn on a road trip together, we'd hit at least one thing on every challenge.)

The archive will open at 00:01 UTC on May the 4th, just over 24 hours from now. Countdown!) This is the time to make those last minute edits and tweaks, polish your author notes, double-check the spelling on Wookiee, or draw a last minute treat, because the world needs emoji Lando babysitting emoji Ben.

Pinch Hit #3 ) Claimed!

Pinch Hit #4 ) Claimed!

Pinch Hit #5 ) Claimed!

This is not a drill. Assignments are due by midnight UTC, Friday April 28th. Countdown! As a reminder, AO3's servers are notoriously robust. Post early if you can, and if you can't upload, please email your finished work to the mods at Due to the deadline extension, no further extensions will be given.

If you decide to default, doing so earlier gives us more time to find a pinch hitter. Someone defaulted today from last year's exchange rather than this year's, so be sure to pay attention to which assignment you're fulfilling or defaulting on.

PLEASE CHECK IF YOU LEFT YOUR WORK IN "DRAFT" FORM! Items in "Draft" status can't be viewed by the mods or anyone else, and at deadline you will be marked as defaulted! We have three works no one can see in the collection right now.

Check out the treats and challenges spreadsheet. We've already hit several challenge goals!

Questions? Comments? Panic? Reply here or send us an email, and we'll get back to you asap.

The no-penalty default deadline is midnight UTC, just a little over eleven hours from now. What does "no penalty" mean? It means you can participate again next year. We have also decided that early defaulters will stay on the treat list.

The deadline for posting is two weeks from today. Early posting avoids AO3 woes and makes our lives easier. If you do get up to the deadline and can't post for some reason, please send your completed work(s) to with identifying information and a short list of tags. We will mark you as completed and help you upload.

The deadline for submission has been extended to April 28th due to real life issues going on the week before. Works must be uploaded by 11:59 PM UTC in a reasonably complete format. The archive will be closed briefly at that time in order for us to send out pinch hits. If you are concerned about the archive's stability, or about your own availability that Friday, we encourage you to upload early and edit in leisure. You can find unrevealed works you've already uploaded from your AO3 dashboard via the Statistics page, or via Works->Works In Collections. Questions can be left here or emailed to
