Is it allowed to sign up to pinch hit without making a story request?

Yes; we usually do need at least one pinch hitter, sometimes more.

Hi!

I asked to join the October challenge and failed. *blushes*

I'd like to join the exchange, but I imagine I'm not on the trustworthy list right now... I've never failed an exchange, though... Can I join? Please? :)

Go ahead and sign up. Just remember that there is a deadline for telling us if you need a pinch-hitter. So long as you are reliable for an exchange or a remix, we don't much mind if you don't make the monthly challenges.

(And you didn't "fail" the October challenge. Feel free to finish it late if you want to, and enter it into the January "potluck".)

What's a pinch-hitter?

It's a phrase from American baseball, a person who goes to bat instead of the batter who is up to bat for some reason such as injurty or something. The pinch-hitter bats "in a pinch". The term is frequently used in fic exchanges or remix challenges.

It means that if for some reason a person cannot turn in their exchange fic, we have people designated as "pinch-hitters" to write the story instead. That way no one goes without a story. For that reason, we give a deadline to bail out on the story, so that the pinch-hitter will have enough time to write one.

Oh, OK. Thanks. I should like to contribute a double drabble myself.

Do you mean for the November drabble challenge? That's on a different post.

Ok, thank you. I will sign up. Don't worry, if I see that things are not going well, I'll let you know before the pinch-hitter deadline.

I'm almost done with the challenge story, but I just didn't make it on time. I remember what you said about January... see you at the potluck!

I'm trying to think of a prompt - if/when I have one, I'll sign up:-)

Is only LOTR allowed or is stuff like Hobbit okay too?
dreamflower02

Anything Tolkien-related: includes not only LOTR and TH, but the Silm, CoH, even things like Roverandom or The Father Christmas Letters.

Hello! Will there be a check in post or something like that for letting you know our progress on our Yule fics? Is there a date by which we need to let you know how we are doing? I am not expecting to need a pinch hitter, but I wasn't sure if we needed to confirm at any point that we are on track (or planning to be on track!).

I have been getting a few PM check-ins already, but will have a post this week for everyone. Likely tomorrow, or maybe even tonight.

We have a bit more leeway than some other exchanges, as our reveal day is New Year's Eve rather than Christmas, giving people a little more time.
