2017 Yule Fic Exchange Claiming Post
IF you signed up for the 2016 LOTR GFIC Yule Fic Exchange the requests are behind the cut. ONLY those who signed up at this post are eligible to choose a request, and ALL who signed up are obligated to write a story.
Because this post is appearing later than I had planned, there will be an extension on the claiming of the prompts, from November 11 to November 17.
Please examine the lists carefully. In order to make sure that everyone has some choice among the prompts, participants this year made two request prompts. The prompts were divided into lists “A” and “B”. You may make your first request from either list. Your second request must be from the other list and must not be the same number as the first list. (For example, if you choose 1A for your first choice, your second request must come from List B, any other number except 1. A combination of 3B and 6A is acceptable, but not 6A and 6B.) This is to make sure every person has a story.
Post a comment with the following header:
First choices will be crossed out as the mods see the requests come in. If two people request the same one before the mods have a chance to cross it out, the second person will get their second request. Comments will be screened. We will do our best to strike out already chosen prompts as quickly as possible, but there will be a time lag, so take that into account. In case of such a time-lag, if more than one person chooses the same request, the time stamp on the comment will be used to determine who gets the assignment.
In the remote possibility that both your choices are already chosen, we will contact you to make a third choice.
Once all stories are claimed, you will be e-mailed with the name of the person you are writing for. You may then check your recipient's own stories and so forth to get an idea of what she likes. Do not contact your recipient however, as authors will be revealed when the stories are revealed.
Please do not wait too long to choose the requests you wish to claim!
You can refresh your memory of the rules and deadlines .
Since the comments are being screened, we cannot answer any questions at this post. Please direct your questions .
